    I check the board every day but haven't been riding much so haven't had much to say. The weather has sucked lately and the leaves are falling, colors fading. Bummer.
    Going to the Reba McIntire concert in LR Saturday. First time I saw her, I had never heard of her. She was doing a Ronald McDonald fund raiser. I knew she was going places.

    Hanging in there. Back is mostly recovered from surgury @ C7 and a [email protected]$# infection that followed. The cure was worse than the infection, double dose of sulfa based antibiotic that had me symphasizing with women that had morning sickness. Chasing bambi's old man now. Weather has sucked so far with rain 35 degrees and 40 mph winds last weekend. Hope this weekend is better. Jerky. MMMMMMMMMMMM.

    Just doing the job in Africa thing. We have a kitten that has adopted the shop. Little female kitten that is named Numpty. I will try and get a picture of her. She gets part of my lunch every day. Somebody made her a little house out of a box and threw some rags in it. She is completely deaf from what I can tell. I gave her a bath yesterday....fur stuck to my tongue though - seriously gave her a bath in a sink and I don't think she cared for it much, but she was nasty!

    Dreaming of getting back to the world and riding.

    MAN is it ever HOT over here right now in Angola! Like 95 degrees.

    Keep posting - folks are reading,.......Only way for me to get my fix over here.

    Wow I guess I don't keep up on things too well. I wasn't aware you were out of the country! Hope it cools down over there for you. It's a bit chilly here, but I'll try to get out and put some miles on this weekend and I'll dedicate them to you! Now post of some pics of that little fur ball.

    Default Ok, ok......

    Ya'll asked, so let me introduce you to Numpty - the Angolan kitty.... Her mother either abandoned her or died - this is Africa after all. Numpty came up as this little, filty, skinny, shaking thing. A guy from Algeria actually found her under a skid of a portacabin. She wound up adopting us. The guy from Algeria made her a house out of a box with some rags. I put a wad of tape on the end of a piece of wire and we all feed her and make sure she has milk and water (out of tops from instant coffee and creamer). Hey, it's not like we can go to Walmart and get her toys. Again, this is Africa.

    She is a deaf mute from what I can tell. I know she doesn't hear and she opens her mouth to meow but nothing comes out. When I gave her a bath and held her in my lap in an old sweatshirt to get her dry, I could feel her purring, but didn't hear anything.

    Anyway, we all hope she makes it. It adds a little normalcy to an insane world over here.

    So, this is Numpty.......



    For lunch, she loves ham and tuna but does not eat eggs. She also likes some kind of summer sausage or something the Algerian guy brings in the morning.



    It makes me feel like I am in a normal place to pet her when I walk by.

    Well, anyway, that is Numpty.......

    It is odd to me that she would be deaf with her coloration. I know in dogs if they are white, but have dark coloring over their ears they usually are not deaf. I had a Harlequin Great Dane that was born deaf. It was gray & white with some black, but had white ears. Anyway, Numpty is cute..... I hope she survives.

    Awwwwwwwww......
    Now I know why you gave her a bath...
    She is a real cutie !!!
    So why do you think she is a deaf mute ???
    As TNT said she doesn't have the classic chararistics of a deaf cat...

    Our kitty Scooter lived in a box before we took her home...
    She was a dumpster kitty.....

    Thanks Strider for the pix.....
    I wish her and you well....

    Hugs to you both....
    And hey to your buddy that came to the swamp....

    The reason I think she is deaf is she does not respond to sound at all. You can yell, make cat noises, stomp your foot and if she is not looking at you, she does not respond in any way. If she sees you or is looking at you she will respond, but we have not seen her respond to noise in any way.

    She was funny this morning. I sat on the back skid of the admin portacabin and picked her up and put her in my lap. She crawled up on my shoulder and walked back and forth across my shoulder and up and over my head. She kept rubbing her face against mine (guess I should shave huh?)

    I did get a surprise today - I heard her purr for the first time. I have felt her purr, but never heard a noise - today when she was right by my ear - I heard her.

    Safe winds everyone!



    The great thing about a cat over here is it takes away a little of the "missing pain" of what I have to leave behind to come here and earn a living. Since I work in the Oilfield, my entire life I have had to leave the ones I love to provide for the ones I love. Except for about 5 years in the office in Louisiana, I have either spent half my life on oilrigs or in foreign countries. Oh well, I really would not have changed anything I guess, even if I could have.....It's been an interesting life in a way.
