YAY! eBay A/C is OURS!

Mommy got such a headache from the heat and anticipation of the eBay auction that she lay down during the last hour of bidding and fell asleep!

If you ever do eBay you know there's peoples called "snipers" who wait till the last moment to outbid. (Um, not that mommy has EVER done that...oh, no.) Luckily no snipers and when mommy got up today we'd WON! Mommy just zipped the PayPal thru and it should leave the warehouse in 2 days! It's comin from New Jersey (Heyyyyy I wonder of Shawnee Shepherd has anything to do with this?? MOL!) and being brought by a truck.

Yeah, it got hotter yesterday than the weatherman said it would...today and the rest of the week about 95 still. The rain, well, it never did come back. But better than 101-107 (official) it's been.
Funny cause two weeks ago mom took a small outdoor thermometer with her on her errands to see the actual temp that was on her. The TV said it was 102. But as mom stood at the busstop at Wal-Mart...in the shade...over grass...the thermometer said 104. Ina shade.

The day it said 109 in the backyard, mom took an aluminniumum pie plate an put it on the driveway and put the thermometer inside. When it maxxed out she put a candy thermomter in it and when the temp in the pan got to 132 degrees she cracked an egg in it and scrambled an egg in the driveway MOL! MOL!
Why? To see if she could ;)

At least 95 isn't egg-cookin weather and just knowing we'll hopefully have an a/c late in the week makes it easier to sweat it out. YAY!

And a very special meow-out and big THANKS to my doggie friend Shawnee Shepherd . She's helping get my stray kitty friend spayed. We're going to keep caring for the kitty (she's pretty wild) and have homes for the two little daughters when they're weaned and ready. We gotta figure out a name for the little mommy cat and mom's gotta sneak out and try to get a pic as well.

Yay! We're very glad you won, and you're on your way to being "cucmubers" as Pickles as Daisy said. Your mom is very sweet to care for the mommy cat and find homes for her kittens. We are thrilled that Shawnee Shepherd is helping with the cost of the spay. Yay!
