So sorry for the lag in posts. Our wireless adapter has officially tanked. So there will be no pictures until we get a replacement.
My mom was here for a week for a nice visit and we scoped out some nice houses. No purchase yet, but hopefully this fall.
The two little girls are in zoo camp this week. This is Grace's second year and Emma's first and they are having a great time. The 160 miles per day I am putting on the van is killing the gas budget but it is only a week.
The kitten (now known as Pumpkin or Punkin or Kitty or Baby Girl) is doing well. She has settled into a nice little routine and she and Murphy are learning to co-exist. She is fine with him, he is being the PIB. He doesn't GET that he is 40 lbs, she is 4oz and he canNOT paw at her to play. He did get a doggie gold star night before last. He officially is 'scorpion spotter'. He found one in the upstairs hall and started barking (not unusual-he barks at everything) and growling (HIGHLY unusual-Murphy NEVER growls) send Katie to investigate and lo and behold he is 'alerting' to a scorpion, a big one. We think he must have been stung in the past and knows they are bad. He never barks at spiders or crickets or flies although he does 'play' with all of the above.
We are preparing for the big trip to KY for the Kuplack family reunion. We will leave June 30 or so and return July 9. It will be quite the production. We are renting a camping trailer and will be staying in the Little Rock area overnight on the way there and they way back and attempt to plug-in at my brother in-laws house in Crestwood. We should have all the adapters and extension cords necessary.


It looks like our beloved San Antonio Spurs are going to win (and possibly sweep) the NBA Championship. We've never been basketball fans, even living in KY (aka basketball country) but you can't help become a Spurs fan living in SA. First of all, they are the only top tier pro sport team SA has so everything is Spurs this, Ginobli that, Parker this, Duncan that. Second, they are a team anyone can really get behind. They generally play very clean, Gregg Popovich (coach) is a straight up guy, none of the players are ever in the news for paternity suits or drug and weapons possession, you don't have to explain to the kids why this supposed "role model" is in jail.....again. They play as a team. It's not "Superstar" and his Merry Men. (Although Lebron James is a great kid, who seems to have his head screwed on straight)

So it's 3-0 Spurs. Hopefully Thursday night SA will be partying as NBA Champs 2007!!

More cat


The wireless is working!! (for the moment)

I don't have time to be clever, I may only have a couple minutes before my wireless disappears into the techo-netherworld. I'm posting some pictures of Katie and Chris in Michigan and our new cat. Yes, cat. A little female named Pumpkin/Punkin. She is a product of one of our feral cats. She is about 6 weeks old, the runt and absolutely precious. We got her before SHE started acting feral and she is very affectionate, loves people even Lucy. Pumpkin and I match, we had to keep her!
