If one MUST be owned by a gato, ginger tabbies are at the top of the list! (Even those that seek repose upon walls)
Course, I don't get out very much...

we went to the SPCA in search of an orange tabby kitten - the only one they had close to that description was more pink than orange - as he grew older, his coat lost the pink hue, but stayed quite light - then I found out that shade is called 'Champagne' - with all the dogs we have here, I was reluctant to get a cat, but we suffered a plague of mice and the house was over run with a bunch of ninja mice that could trip a trap and duck out of the way of getting caught, so "Milo' entered the scene - at 13 weeks he was catching mice, and his hunting combined with his smell, I guess, rid us of our invader - at 6 months he had all the house dogs tamed and under control - now at 2 years, he pretty much controls the house - lol

Sister text me the other day telling me she's paying over $4 for diesel. It's $2.79 here.

Sleddgracer 10-13-2019 10:27 PM

gas here in my beautiful part of BC is $4.91 per US gal- Vancouver/lower mainland are considerably higher - Alberta, a few days ago was as low as $3.66 a US gal - of course that's in Canadian $, so take 25% off those prices - so 3.68 for me, about $4.25 for Vancouver, and $2.74 for Alberta

Last Oct, Furnace Creek CA, diesel= $6.00.9.
