A few days ago I noticed the answering machine didn't pick up, and yesterday when I rang Andy he was upstairs and didn't get down until after eight rings, at which point I'd hung up. The answering machine's highest number of rings is four. I've run the general diagnostics and it seems as if it might be headed for the great paperweight collection in the sky. So today in the mail I got a $10.00 off an order of $100 or more offer. The phone we had decided to get a while back costs $110.00 and the shipping is free. We may just get it, since our answering machine picked now to die.
I had an interesting experience at Kitty City today. Now, in the past I've come to love several kitties; Bianca, Captain, Dr Z, Evian, and Shadow, and Trent among them. However, I've only had the "reach out and tear out your heart" types three times before: Thena, Gail, and Heidi. Tonight Gigi, the newest kitten, managed to pull it off. She could not have pressed more of my instant-fall-for buttons if she'd had a script. Sniffle.
