I reckon I’d better say somepin, here …

12 Sep

… Especially after I emailed a bunch of you to see why I couldn't get in, yesterday. I got a "405 not allowed" every time I tried to log in, and a "Forbidden" when I tried to re-register. Jeeze! I couldn't tell what was the matter. Unni was experiencing trouble, too, so I had some hope that it wasn't just me. I had recently reported a bunch of TOS violations … I wondered whether I'd been banned by some vengeful person … ordinarily I don't like to report stuff, because I don't get upset by it, but I do it here, because Miska had trouble with one ISP blocking this Community because of porn. Well, luckily, Miska was able to check my page for me, and it was still up, and still OK, so I figured it was a glitch that glitched me differently than others. Sometimes that happens.
And, sure enough, I could get on, this morning. Thanks, Miska; and I see that Unni is back up and running, too. Hot dawg!
So … I might as well put up a few pictures, too … I haven't got as many as usual, especially considering the long interval since I've posted, but the fact is that the weather here has been abominable. We've been in a very, very hot Summer, with plenty of humidity. I've been hiding indoors, in the AC. Anyone who knows me knows that Summer is not my best season, and that most "normal" Summers really have a tendency to cripple me as far as outdoor activity goes. This one was probably the worst one I've ever lived through … if you can call this living.
This little fellow came to stay with us in June. He's driving me crazy as I tame him. He's just a "toddler" now, so what he doesn't wreck on purpose, he spoils by accident. He's just starting to learn not to bite. He'll be a good cat, if I survive:

He's a nice enough little guy, but it's been SOOOO long since I had a kitten around!
And then, there have been some nice little signs of the warm season …

Sometimes he relaxes …

(If it seems like he's getting bigger, it's because he's getting bigger.)
And, of course, there are the obligatory pictures of random places along the streets:

But he most certainly isn't always relaxed …

Wow … I reckon I'd better quit, now … I'm getting sleepy!
Cheers, all …

    My husband could not enter his account! :irked: Yesterday there were problems for all. The post is full of beautiful photos and the kitten is very nice. I adopted 2 cats, mother and son were here around my garden but they are very shy, I hope to photograph them in the coming days. πŸ™‚

    Okay, the new kitty is just adorable, :love: even if wicked. :devil: The photo of the yard with the well, is that a real well? Very cool looking anyway.And I found the Arby's photo to be oddly appealing.I was just telling my husband that weather-wise we are about to enter my favorite six weeks of the year (mid September through the end of October). So relief from the heat is at hand. Boy, do I enjoy an autumn stroll when the weather is crisp!You wrote:

    Saw a bunch today, while out walking … it was hot, but I really needed to get out. None of them would hold still long enough for a picture, though.

    Ironic that only rich people can afford a primitive well nowadays. πŸ˜†

    His name is Lucky … and if I don't kill him, it will be true.

    It is a 'comfort' to read that other people were not able to enter their accounts! I must say I felt just like you the other day; I was wondering if I was banned. And I was thinking about comments I hade made etc etc. Ay ay! But such a relief to see I was not alone, he he:) Very cute cat! Has it got a name?

    I have computer and connection problems generally and Opera`s eccentricities just add insult to injury. πŸ™„ πŸ™„ I love your kitten.:love: I see he likes the Arts and Crafts movement, Morris and Ruskin would be proud. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜†

    Morris, yes, and all those true greats … I'm a little iffy on Ruskin, though … he was an absolute boor about Whistler.

    How is it going with Lucky? I he still lucky?

  20. derWandersmann

    September 24, 2010 at 1:09 pm

    Yes, but The Powers That Be have changed his name to "Cat". He seems to recognise it.

  21. Berith1

    September 24, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    Glad to know He Is. πŸ™‚ But Lucky was a good name.
