Wow, we got photo tagges! Our friends Isis and Denali at Kitty Kitty tagged us!
Oh, and yes, I know that I am posting this before the awards I need to post, but honestly this was much quicker - I know that is a bad excuse but we have a bunch of awards from our awesome friends to post, and I have them all written on little pieces of paper so I don't forget - I want to put them all into one post and it is still busy at work so I am doing this first. But to all you who awarded us, I swear they will be up by April 3 - our end of year is March 31, so I can relax after that.
Oh, before I go on be sure to check out my other two posts for today - Michelle, who I work with, whose cat was hurt, said to thank everyone for their purrs and grrs. She also doesn't blame the dog for the attack, she blames the owners. They did try to help her find her kitty (who ran off hurt after the attack) and paid for the vet bills - but they helped look while leaving their baby (under a year) alone in the apartment - she asked about the baby at one point and when they told her (she assumed someone else was there) she made them go home, so that shows you they aren't necessarily all there. Elfo (her kitty who was hurt) was saved by her brother cat going after the dog to stop him. She is going to be ok but she is very sore and has one big gash that they have to watch. But she is resting and eating and taking her meds so she should be ok soon.
Ok, so back to the Photo Tag. The rules are that you go to your first picture folder, post the 10th picture, and tell the story behind it. Well, I store my photos in many places (which is annoying actually, and I plan to consolidate them at some point - my computer sometimes puts the folders where it wants to on the new computer and I don't catch it). Then you tag 5 other blogs to play too.
Because of the many folder locations, I decided ahead of time that I would use one from the external drive in the first location I found pictures in. So I went to Rusty (yes, I named the external drive Rusty Cuyler - from the show Squidbillies - the other one is named Early Cuyler, for his dad) and went to the Amy folder and went to the pictures folder (which is really a bunch of subfolders and a bunch of pictures from the internet I saved because they were cute, like LOLcats, stuff from XKCD that was funny, weird Rick Astley charts and stuff like that) so they didn't seem like what the tag was about), and went to the first folder I thought had pictures in it I took - but it was empty.
So I tried a different folder - this was called New Folder, and I went to the documents folder, because I usually have pictures in there (see this hard drive has a bunch of weird folders from me copying stuff from my old laptop, then forgetting what I copied, and me copying it again - I probably have 8 copies of some photos on it). Bingo! Pictures! So this is the 10th picture in the folder:
This is a picture of Virgil from when he was a few months old (I would have to look back in the blog to remember his age - the picture properties say it was created July 2009 but modified in November 2008. November sounds more likely because this is a picture I like to call Painty Butt - if you look at Virgils butt you can see it is painted from him rubbing against the wall as I painted it. I think we did that right before Thanksgiving - making him about 4 months old there. He actually rubbed the wall twice, but the first time it was dry enough he didn't get it on him. The second time I ended up putting him in the bedroom for a while. The paint was wet enough to get on him but dry enough that it dried on him quickly - so I knew it wouldn't wash out. I did manage to get most of it out by brushing him. After he came out of the bedroom he went to the pillow on the couch (which was in the hallway at the time) and went to sleep. This is before he fell asleep, obviously. The funny thing is that right now he is sitting next to me resting on the same pillow - and he doesn't seem that much bigger.
So now I have to tag 5 blogs - so I am going to pick:
Remington from The Life and Times of Remington
The Houston Pittie Pack from kissa-bull
All the pups at One Pibbles Wish
The whole crew at Dog Foster Mom
and Brind'Amour, from The Wacky Wonderful World of Brind'Amour
I picked all doggies today because I know a lot of the kitties have already done this, but I don't remember too many doggies in the game yet - though I am still super behind, so that could be totally wrong. But if you want to see some cute pups be sure to visit them all!
