Happy Independence Day
« on: July 04, 2015, 12:52:30 am »
Greetings from across the pond.   We started the celebrations for you early, with the father and mother of thunderstorms here at 2am.  Enjoy your day, whatever you are doing.

Thank you! Oddly enough, we had passing storms in my area just a short while ago, so maybe they've discovered a Portal somewhere and are travelling from here to there or vice versa. If so, I hope we can locate the Portals, since that would be so much more convenient for my tourism aspirations than saving up for airfare. ;)

Happy Independance Day from across the pond
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

We be 239 years old. Happy 4th of July!  And when you find that transfer portal, I do hope it has a twin here in California. I would love to jump over the pond in a single bound to visit Mother England.

Happy Fourth of July! We have lit a bonfire in celebration.
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggity beasties and things that go bump in the night...good Lord deliver us!

I am happy the fourth of July is OVER!  What with my noisy-firework-happy neighbor blowing off two to three "Bombs" every half-hour from noon to midnight like a chime on a clock, me and my dogs nerves are frazzled. Angle had a seizure yesterday and is not well this morning, but at least the morning, so far, is a quiet one. It is hard to celebrate the Independence Day of our country when all of your animal family are unhappy.

I hope every one else had a safe, sane holiday.

It rained here, too.  The last thing we need in WV, though is MORE RAIN.

I hope your furry family are more at ease today, Laurna. Noon to midnight sounds like seriously anti-social behaviour to me.

Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

Aw, Laurna, I'm sorry your furry ones are upset and that your neighbors are inconsiderate jerks about shooting off noisy fireworks.

My neighbors have been intermittently shooting off fireworks since Saturday!  (The holiday is July 4th, not July 2nd, people!)  However, Carys-kitteh is sufficiently chill that she doesn't seem to be particularly bothered by it.  So sending some purrs and general chill from Carys to your fuzzballs.  :)
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

We had no fireworks on either Canada Day or the 4th of July due to a fire ban (no significant rain for awhile).  Rain may be in the forecast, and we need it.

Sorry Angie suffered a seizure - hopefully it was just a one-time occurrence due to stress.

Pretty peaceful Fourth of July, here. Funny, those who don't want more water get rain, and we who need it don't get it! Mother Nature can really play some sadistic power games with her kids.   Didn't go see fireworks. I only like them when I'm up close, but to get close, you have to cope with traffic. Wasn't at all in the mood, so I stayed contentedly at home. I heard quite a lot of fizzes, pops and bangs, but mostly from a distance. Dmitri napped through most of it, bearing the most remarkable resemblance to a rug. Hope everyone else's anxious fur kids are now out from  under the collective beds now that "end of the World Day" is now over.
