Bruiser ~ Jake ~ Picture Stitching ~ LE/Fire Christmas Dinner

Good 40ยบ raining pouring windy morning.

I got on the scale with Bruiser yesterday. He weighs 16 pounds!! He is solid as a rock too! Average weight for cats is 7-11 pounds. He likes to nap on the carpet between the dining room and the kitchen where there is a little step...

Hey.... what was that flash???

It's ok Bruiser, go back to sleep! He took off yesterday afternoon but came back sometime in the night. Slept on the porch, as he was dry this morning. Glad he chooses to stay close! ... Alas, until the next time!

Here is Jake after his ear operation... he's doing well, sleeping a lot, on pain meds, and not liking the "cone of silence".

Luckily for Erika and Spence, the owner of the dog and the father who was walking the one who attacked Jake are paying for the vet bill! Nice. Apparently the man walking the dog really likes Jake.

I was playing around with merging photos again, as my friend Dale said he has a printer that will print panoramas and wanted me to send him on. I took these 4 photos .....


and 'stitched' them together into this....

LAPD/Burbank PD ret Dennie Offerman and Bea

... and here we have Walter Smith (LAPD..ret over 40 years!) his friend Carolyn (former LASD Radio Dispatcher) and Greg Kleeman (LAPD and friend with Wilsonite Steve Geon)

Rufus was soooooooooooo sweet and brought me a beautiful little wine glass (he even filled it with wine!) with the USMC emblem on it from the 209th Birthday Ball and Seal Beach Barracks emblem on the other side! Jerry was stationed at Seal Beach at one time. This year was the 237th Birthday of the USMC... that makes this wine glass 28 years old! How cool is that!~

All I know. Nuff said. Clean the house day. UGH.
