Tuesday's Blog

OK boys and girls, I usually don't rant like this but I felt compelled.

As of tomorrow, the state of California will begin paying its bills with IOU's. What does that mean? I means my paycheck at the end of July will be a worthless piece of paper.

The Governator has declared that he will veto any package to balance California's budget woes if it includes tax increases. Maybe it's time to recall the Gov.

Grrr ...

Friday's Quiz and Blog

OK, let's start off with the quiz first.

Q. What does Barbara Caine's new pendant necklace contain?

As usual either use the Haloscan commenting system or leave your guess over on my forum on PlanetFurry.

So we left for our Furmeet this afternoon at about 1 o'clock and arrived in sunny West Covina 6.5 hours later. We quickly found our motel, got ourselves checked in and went to scout for food. Finally nourished, we're now hunkering down in our room, hoping for some rest. Amazingly, I think my back made it here in one piece. I think I may have helped the situation by using my lifting belt to support my back on the way down.

So, we need to find Galco's Soda Pop Stop in the morning for some Moxie Cola if we have time, locate a Chick's Sporting Goods, now part of Dick's Sporting Goods  then head over to Styx' place.

Apricot Pie!

The cake may be a lie but this is the real deal, straight from the old warhorse's kitchen! Apricot pie made from Sunkist dried California apricots. Can you smell that goodness?

Slainte!

Wednesday's Quiz and Blog

Let's start out with the question for today.

Q. What manufacturer and caliber is Victoria's one full-sized '1911' pattern auto pistol she recently had in her possession?

Answers may be submitted either by the commenting system below or over at my forum on PlanetFurry.

On to the rest of the shtuff ...

My friend that has been ill has been moved by his niece to UCSF hospital. The bad part is the fact that he cannot accept visitors or calls. Oh Well ...

Take care,

Monday's Question (and blog)

Let's start today's blog with the quiz question.

Q. What does Willi Marie and Gytha Louise have in common?

Answers may be submitted either by the commenting system below or over on my forum at PlanetFurry. 

MY wayward friend that kept checking himself in and out of the hospital has finally been kept long enough by one facility to finally get his heart and diabetes under control. It's sad that he is still very delusional. The doctor in charge says he will be releasing him soon to be sent to a convalescent hospital to get his head straightened out. I'm not sure what caused this but it's sad to see him like this.

Anyway, have a great week.

Saturday' Blog

So, you might have noticed that I didn't post but one question this week. Well, things conspired to force a full reload of the blog.

Monday's question, "Q: Who is Walter and Michelle's middle kit named after?"

The answer is, He is named after his Great-grandfather Joseph Connell and Wally's late friend Franklin Hellyer.

My Tigress is recovering very nicely, having went back to work last Tuesday. She does have a multitude of scuffs and bruises to show for it.

Have a nice weekend,

Just A Quick Note (sorry, no blog)

Just to let you know, I've been busier than all get-out so I haven't had time to post a question for Wednesday. I will try to post two on Friday to make up for it.

Monday's Quiz (and blog)

OK, Monday didn't start off very well for the Meig'h family. My tigress began her quick trip to work this morning and managed to wipe out on her bicycle about a half-block away from home.

She called me on her cell phone in tears, letting me know what happened. I retrieved her from her resting spot on the ground and took her to the hospital. She's a little scuffed up, her left paw is swollen and she's sure to have at least one black eye. Her gloves and helmet did their part, preventing a concussion or major road rash. I'm staying at home from work to watch over her, just in case she needs to go back to the emergency room. When it rains, it pours.

Now back to our regularly scheduled blog in progress.

Today's Question;

Q: Who is Walter and Michelle's middle kit named after?

Hint: The answer can be found in chapter 29.

As usual, use the Haloscan commenting link below to leave an educated guess. The answer will be posted Saturday.

Last Monday's question was "Who the heck are Hrist, Gunhildr and Elin?" Anyone that's read my writings would know they are Valkyries. Hrist is a leopard appaloosa equine, Gunhildr is a red-headed equine (think Red Shetland) and Elin is a lioness.

Last Wednesday's question was "What significance does 'Cajon Pass' hold for the immortal couple and their family?" That was where Conrad and his biological father had a horrific crash in a diesel truck in an alternate time line they were forced into.

Friday's question was "What is Torvald's favorite dinner food that his tigress mate prepares for him?" The answer is Victoria's Special Spicy Meatloaf. It has a distinct middle eastern flavor to it, since her family came from Mumbai, India.

So, Y'all take care and have a safe week at work!

Slainte!

Update for Y'all

Just a quick note-

Chapter 29 of "A Loss Of Rights" has been posted for your reading pleasure.

Nicolai, I owe you an email, too. Looks like I need to type some this weekend!

Slainte Mhath!

Friday's Quiz (and short blog)

What's going on here? Nobody wants to hazard a guess? Hmm ...

Q. What is Torvald's favorite dinner food that his tigress mate prepares for him?

OK, since nobody guessed Monday or Wednesday's questions, I will wait until Monday to answer both of them for you. Starting next week, I will put up the questions but wait until Saturday to give out the answers.

I guess I will be working on my pickup truck this weekend but I hope we will be able to squeeze in the Livermore Rodeo somehow.

SC, I haven't heard from you in a while but I think I owe you an email. Take care, my friend.

Slainte!

Wednesday's Quiz (and blog)

Gah, does anyone want to take a guess on Monday's question? It's real easy ... Aslaug, you may take a guess, too ...

Q. What significance does 'Cajon Pass' hold for the immortal couple and their family?

As always, use the commenting link below to make your best guess. I will hold off until Friday to post the answer for Monday's quiz.

For last Friday's quiz, "What was Victoria's major complaint after being captured by the mage Terrance?", the answer is she complained that she wanted to go on just one mission where she didn't end up naked at some point.

I'm still back to work, but the pain is almost unbearable at times. Maybe it will get better with time.

Slainte!

Monday's Quiz (and blog)

Hmm ... No guesses? *shakes head* These were easy questions for those who have been reading my stuff ...

Q. Who the heck are Hrist, Gunhildr and Elin?

Use the comment system below to make your best educated guesses.

So, last Wednesday's quiz was, "What islands did Joan Elfsborg suspect Torvald was from by the sound of his accent and the language he used to speak to her?"

Joan Elfsborg, the tall, blond filly, thought Torvald was from the Faroe Islands. She also thought he might be Icelandic. It seems (according to my sources) this would be her best guess. Ancient Danish was different from modern Danish, which Joan can speak.

I will hold off on answering Friday's quiz until Wednesday.

We did go to "Try The Caber" day, having a wonderful day in the process. The weather was nice, The company excellent and the food was outstanding. I have about 2 hours of video to pare down into 9 minutes and 55 seconds for YouTube. There might be a blooper reel, too. We had a couple of minor injuries but you have to remember, we're playing with tree trunks, heavy stones and modified exercise equipment.

Still working on chapter 29 of "A Loss Of Rights"  so don't expect it before this weekend.

Slainte!

Sunday's Blog

Well, we're going over to Stanford University's grounds for a 'Try The Caber' day with our local athletes. I suppose I will lift no more than my video camera but it might give you an idea what Scottish Games are all about. I will post pics/vids.

Still working on Chapter 29 of "A Loss Of Rights"  and it seems to be slow going at the moment. I'm hoping a day out of the house will inspire me to write.

My friend The Silver Coyote has been busy so he hasn't been posting in a forum we haunt. I hope his Mom-in-law is doing well after having a pacemaker put in to help her aging heart. SC, we're still keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

As a side note, my wandering minstrel friend turned up at another hospital Saturday. They were wanting me to go retrieve his medications for safe keeping. I let his roomie know this because I'm almost at the point of washing my hands of this mess right now. Grrr ...

Slainte!

Musings and Venting (advance apologies are in order)

I was just sitting here, attempting to work on one of my STORIES and the events of the past few days kept playing in my head.

OK, my friend that was in the hospital was trying to get himself released last Wednesday, I found out. His doctor recommended against it and his roommate finally had to go down to the hospital on Wednesday night to convince him to stay another day, at the very least.

He finally got himself released Thursday morning and took a taxi cab back to Hayward from Santa Clara. The taxi ride cost over $120 USD so he gave the cab driver everything he had in his pockets and told him that's all he had. Most likely not enough, if I know him.

Anyway, his room mate came home Thursday to find the house torn up and my sick friend standing in the doorway to the roommate's room, stark naked. The roomie tried to get him to get dressed so the sick one went into the kitchen, trying to use the refrigerator as an air conditioner. When the roomie suggested he go back to the hospital, since he wasn't acting rational, the sick one responded by pulling a kitchen knife on him and telling him to "Leave me the **** alone!" (you fill in the asterisks)

Anyway, roomie called the sick one's niece and between the two of them, got him headed for the hospital again via ambulance The EMT crew checked his vitals and found his blood sugar over 560! Maybe the extra large pizza he had consumed by himself had something to do with that?

So, he goes to the hospital, but checks himself out of the hospital Friday (yesterday) morning. He hasn't been seen or heard from since and this bothers me. He's obviously not thinking rationally so in a way, he's a danger unto himself. Nobody has seen him and his cell phone is out of minutes so he has no way to communicate with us.

I fear he has done this because he is just irrational/delusional.

Wish him some luck, will you?

Kellan, the old warhorse.

Friday's Quiz (and blog)

Friday has arrived so here's the quiz;

Q. What was Victoria's major complaint after being captured by the mage Terrance?

There were no guesses on Wednesday's quiz so I will wait until Monday to give out the answer. Please use the comment system below to make your guesses.

On another note ...

My friend that's been sick is out of the hospital now. (*edit* he didn't get released, like I thought) How he went from sick and on the ventilator on Tuesday to going home on Wednesday, I'll never know. He did wait until I had gotten home from work and taken some pain pills to call for a ride home. I was a little upset that he got all indignant when I told him I wouldn't drive in that condition. Grrr ... Just another example of his bad timing.

Anyway, my tigress hasn't decided what we will be doing this weekend for entertainment, so I will report later what transpired.

Slainte Mhath!

Wednesday's Quiz (and blog)

OK, here's Wednesday's question;

Q. What islands did Joan Elfsborg suspect Torvald was from by the sound of his accent and the language he used to speak to her?

And here's the answers to Friday and Monday's questions.

Kellan Meig'h is the author of the "Immortal Warriors" series and SRE65 got it right; Pamela Benelli is the culprit! Not that Torvald and Victoria didn't want to keep their 'extra' children ...

As a side note, there will be a new story coming coming down the pipe after the current one, "A Loss Of Rights", that will take a very dark tone. It will become apparent that you just can't be celestial troubleshooters without garnering the attention of the authorities that control the universe. The current working title is "Retribution". And you thought "Loss" was dark ...

My back is not in as much pain this morning so that's good. Y'all take care!

Slainte!

Monday's Quiz

OK folks, here's Monday's question;

Q. Who is the fur directly responsible for Torvald and Victoria having children they didn't have before?

OK, since nobody answered Friday's question, I'll wait until Wednesday to give out the answer.

Slainte!
