I tried to think of a catchy title but I'm just not that creative, folks. I don't know what the weather is like. I left the house early. I'm going to assume that it's hot.;)

TOTD: Cats or dogs? Why?:D

Still in the 70s. Was that harvest moon amazing last night or what? Wow! The pagans must have been in 7th heaven over it. :)

TOTD: Dogs, obviously. Cats are mobile decor. They have some utility in terms of mouse and bug eating but they mostly exist to complement your furniture.

A dog is your best pal. Even the stupidest dog will alert you to the zombies coming down the driveway. Your dog is interested in your activities even if your preferred activity is eating Cheetos in the basement. Your dog cares about your day and is willing listen to you whine about it. Your dog thinks a 2 a.m. walk to clear your head is a fine idea. Your dog likes your cooking even if the FDA would throw you in jail for attempted poisoning.

Dogs rule.

Now that's just lazy, Shannon.

Dogs of course, anyone who disagrees is either an old lady or a commie.

I couldn't fall back on the mayo TOTD. We just did that again. This is why I'm not in charge of a day thread.;)

You get a lot more out of a dog but they're more work.

Dogs. Big ones. Dogs that can knock down a grown man sneaking through the window and rip out that grown man's jugular.

Dogs, even through havin a dog is like havin a toddler again.
A cat would kill and eat ya if it could and not feel a thing.

Crappy weather here in Teh Yuk. I'm actually running the heating, in September. :(

and scratch it to shit and leave their fur all over it, don't forget.

If I ever stop traveling for work and when my cat goes to meet Ceiling Cat, she will be upgraded to a dog.

That's one of the best ways I've seen to explain the difference between dogs and cats---upgrade to a dog.

I don't dislike cats, but I don't particularly ever want one. My black greyhound, Darlene, is way too interested in them. Blue and Xena could care less. Darlene is my convenient excuse to never have a cat.

When we were helping SR's uncle housesit, I quickly found out that I'm allergic to large quantities of cats. The people had 5. I felt really sick. Maybe it was from all the litter boxes in the bedroom. What turned out to be a "free" vacation in Sanibel (when we were still living in St Louis) quickly turned into a stay at a motel. Those cats were everywhere, particularly the one who required that all clothing be stashed away in a closet. That was the spraying cat.

Dogs rule. They always love you, are loyal, affectionate. Live wouldn't be the same or as rich without the dogs.

TOTD: Cats or dogs? Why?:DI shouldn't say anything because I don't start day threads myself but damn...you suck at this.

And don't use that as an excuse to not start another one. Try harder.

TOTD: What's a cat?

I have no preference. I love cats for certain reasons and the same for dogs. I am starting to suspect that cats are more intelligent than humans though...and they use that intelligence for evil purposes.


JB- Shut it.

Perhaps that is why I relate to cats so well.

Thanks for taking the day thread. I'll be back at it next Friday.
Yesterday I had breakfast in Istanbul, dinner in New York, and was climbing into my own bed at 11.30 pm. Rather a long day.
A flight is officially too long when you can watch four full length movies with time left over.

You'll give us a travelogue next week. What about the in-flight knitting?

It was wonderful. I'm still processing everything we saw and haven't started putting pictures together yet. My husband took about 1500, and I took about 500, which is far more than usual.
Knitting - no problem. I had wooden circular needles and no eyebrows were raised in security at all.

However, we did make a large purchase and declared it when we came through customs in New York. The customs agent calculated the duty by using one percentage, then another, then said, "forget it" and passed us through. I wanted to pay it - it was only about $65.00 - but he wouldn't take money or billing information. I thought he was about to get off duty, and my husband thought it was because there was no cashier there and he'd have to do the paperwork himself.

With our treasury strapped for cash, I have to wonder how much money we lose because customs agents just can't be bothered?

What did you knit?

Piker. I'm doing Fair Isle socks on #1s. However, I need to see the pattern you are knitting so that I can potentially do one myself or steal the best ideas from it.

Pic please. :)

I can do a scan if you want to send me an email address; it's an old book from the '70s but styles don't change that radically. It's what I'd call a "Steve Douglas" type of sweater/vest.
