Yeah. :lol: Maybe it's an Americanism.

Our commercials say "litter box", but that's mainly because "cat box" doesn't give the litter box the dignity it deserves.

I finally found my Camp Chef stove oven and got a grrrrreat deal on it! $97!! There's this place in town called Spokane Discount. I went their tonight because they had a coupon for Camping stoves. What they had were these two huge burner stoves good for heavy duty cooking and I was going to buy one of them then I looked to the left and I saw them!! Two of the Camp Chef stove/ovens that I've been lusting over for over as year. I snatched up the unopen box and called it my own!! I am Sooooooo happy right now!!! :D :D :D :D

This is what I bought!

This is the other camp stove, On sale for $50.

Did you discover Muta's deafness almost by accident? I seem to recall reading a deaf kitty story somewhere recently.

Now that I know what a cat box is... We have 4 because Stanley is kept separate when we're not around to supervise. Otherwise it would be 3 once he's fully integrated.

Yup, the deaf kitty story was mine! We made a guess after she ignored us a bunch and was super skittish. Tested it, and we were totally right.

I offered this tent up months ago and had no takers. TS said he would accept it before his life-changing event,,,, so as far as I know it is still available. I'll bring it regardless and do not intend to bring it back.

You'll love it! I suggest you try baking with it a few times before using it in the playa. You need to get used to how to regulate the temperature in the oven. it's not quite as accurate as a standard kitchen oven.

Digging around the archives:
I love this photo! 2006, the last time we were able to go shooting together. We took out some of the nicer weapons and went up the hill. She totally outshot me with the M16. She did that the first time we met (on an Army firing range, mreow!)
I'm thinking of getting out a lightweight BB or pellet gun so she can hold it comfortably and go out in the backyard and do some plinking.


JK, fifty bucks? Great score.
And that's quite the oven. I'm coming over for some hot cross buns! :lol:

I'm lying inverted on the seat of my truck with my head under the dashboard wiring up the brake controller for the trailer when BAM! Sweetpea slaps a wad of Goodwill clothes on my belly and says, "OK Fashion Boy! Time to get dressed and do a photo shoot!"
Aw shit, pull my leg...

This is the first time in a week she's been able to get up and around decently. Surprised the hell out of me when she showed up outside.
Tactical Combat Skirt.JPG
She's still getting used to the idea that guys wear kilts & skirts on the playa...
'Boy Patrol - Lifeguard'.JPG

But she loves these shorts... sometimes I can't figure her out.
Black Hot Pants.JPG
These are soooo slutty. I fucking love them.

I went in and made a big dinner for her afterwards. We sat out on the lawn and had a picnic.
A nice way to end the day. Yay!
