Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... January 2018

Becca, I like that a lot! Looks like you're starting 2010 with a bang! If the rest of the year goes half as good, you'll have smooth sailing throughout the year! Good for you!

Hi Jess and happy new year!

Marcia, I hope your day trip with BFF and BF was fun - did you get photos?

BFF and I had fun, but it was warm in Palm Desert, so most of the animals were napping. The giraffes were out though, so that was cool!

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... January 2018

Good Morning Oilycats!!!

Becca, the page turned and I forgot to comment on how much I like the parasol collage. Your uncertainty in trying something new is understandable, but I think it is terrific.

Stay warm, Jessicat, and don't go out if you don't have to!

BFF is heading back to AZ this morning. There is a show of Arizona artists in the small town of Wickenburg through March http://www.californiadesertart.com/?p=3333 which is only about 40 minutes from where she lives, so it is my turn to go visit her and we will take a day trip to go see the exhibit.

I have a new visitor, a slight (i hope) cold. I had a tickle in my throat for awhile, but it went away last night, and I hope it stays gone. I do have a few errands I have to run, but will keep them to a minimum, and try to stay home tomorow.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... January 2018

Marcia, I hope you got a flu shot - this year is one of the worst varieties of it. I got one, but I still have a runny nose because of the cold weather.

Sorry I didn't get to share my new year with you, but - I got up Monday morning apparently looking like death warmed over, which caused Himself to dial 911. An ambulance came, and apparently they didn't like the way I looked either, so they hauled me off to the hospital only wearing my "She Who Sleeps with Cats" nightgown! In utterly freezing weather!

I was as mad as a wet hen, and told them this was NOT my idea of how to start off a new year. So the Doc set up a stress test for me on Tuesday, which proved me right, that I did NOT have a heart episode. Because I didn't have anything with me, such as my purse, shoes, or phone, it took me the whole rest of the day to get Himself on the way to pick me up, so we didn't get home until 9:00 PM!

By that time I was mad enough to chew nails. He finally got there with several layers of clothes for weathering the cold outside, but forgot to bring me any shoes, so the nurses put some socks on me and had me carried out to the car.

Then, Himself, who is no better driving at night than I am, had to go and get us lost. I did remember to not try to tell him how to get home, because of having the same problem.

Becca, I think you have a wonderfully imaginative mind to come up with the images you show us - I loved the dress in your latest!

I keep wondering about Carey, too... Jess, are you in touch with her, and is she doing okay? Please let us know!

To all of you, please have the happiest new year possible - frankly, I'm still waiting for the Global Warming people to come back!

Lemme know if I'm such a wreck that this whole message is garbled!

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... January 2018

Nancy, glad your day was simply aggravating and you finally made it home safe, if shoeless.

So far, the virus hasn't gotten worse, as far as I can tell. I would have liked to take it easy today, but had a few errands I needed to run. Tomorrow I think I can just stay home and work on boss from hell's books.

The witch doctor has concluded that he needs to do 1099s, so that may be a little extra for me too, although since they are due on 01/31, that might be a little crunchy. Two of the boss from hell's businesses also need them filed. He is 'pretty sure' he got w-9s from all of his contractors.

So I probably caught this cold from some snotty nosed kid (or adult) yesterday, but the critters made up for it.

Bestie took these:

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... January 2018

Marcia...good luck with the 'day of rest' tomorrow...bleh...bookkeeping isn't esp restful...but at least limiting your running about should be good for you....loads of viruses going around here as well...started early this year and haven't stopped...I'm determined not to be sick, but will admit to a runny nose the past few days...aiming for extra sleep tonight and ate a little better than usual today.

the critter pics are sweet...

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... January 2018

Marcia, your BFF takes some really nice pix. I especially love the tortoise (02 turtle, but the giraffe should lure Carey back to us! (?) I hope, anyway.

I have a gallery meeting tomorrow, but I'm still not sure what paintings I want to bring as well as "Herdin' the little Dogies." Opening night is Friday, and with this weather, I don't know if many people will show up with all the cold we're having. But, if it's fairly good weather, most of us get stir-crazy and have to go somewhere. At least I do... I'm still working on my football hero painting, and I'll definitely finish it by February.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... January 2018

Happy New Year 2018!

Marcia, I like a lot your animal photos. Look at those leopards! They are like smashed on the ground. So relaxed, so beautiful. I'm now painting some animals, big cats, there's a challenge in "wildlife & animals" thread with some gorgeous animals.
Marcia, earlier you also mentioned health insurance issues that you are dealing with, both you and Becca .. from this new year on they have made a new law here in my hometown that anybody from any country without ID or money on the street has the right for doctor and hospital & all treatments as normal citizens. I'm surprised because its the right wing party that is ruling now and they would normally make cuts for the most poor people's lifes. It's not yet in the whole country only in the capital (my home town) but the other cities are thinking of making the same "law" or rule -> so, this is how we are going forward here from now on ...
Nancy, what a start for New Year! I'm glad you are now back with painting.
Becca, I hope this new year is better and brings new adventures.
Annie, how did Pearl take the New Year's noise?

You guys have extreme cold temps in some parts of the country, I read about it in other threads too. We have global warming going on: I have windows open all day so that it doesn't get too warm inside. Grazy wearher this time of the year.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... January 2018

Good Morning Oilycats!!!

I am feeling a little worse today, but I think I can still work at my desk. Well it isn't like I have a choice in the matter anyway....

Becca, I hope your sniffles go away, rather than something worse.
