   BirdsNest  Something fun...9 baby Silkie chicks. Six at one time then 2 days later two, then one fussy little fur ball. Their feathers look like fur, especially as babies. I captured one of the hens that had been setting and she got to be the "Mama". The other chicks that hatched are much bigger, I grabbed their mamas and put them back with the flock, at night of course. I secretly think they were glad to be relieved of their duty.Maybe that will help with the consumption of the special diet given to the little ones. Anyway, they make me smile.

   BirdsNest  Silkies ALWAYS make me smile and I am glad I didn't sell them all last Fall at the swap. I had intended to get rid of all of the chickens. The Universe decided I needed 12 big chickens(gift from a friend ) and the small group of Silkies I had decided to keep. It was also very sweet to see the 3 former mama hens back in the yard with the other Silkies. Now when I throw garden scraps in their pen there are more eager takers.

   Bettijo  Did I tell you Bogey was named for General Beauregard, a famous Confederate general from Louisiana? General Beauregard was the first to carry the Confederate flag in the First Battle of Bull Run. So, I decided Bogey needed a pillow made from Confederate flag. Do you think I could find one?

Checked on line: Amazon no longer carries them; how about that? I will check Wal-Mart today. Oops! too late. WalMart, eBay, Sears, Target and goodness knows who all have quit selling Confederate flags. One flag manufacturer said he would quit producing them. Guess our song "Dixie" will be banned next.

I found some Rebel flag fabric online, but it was too expensive.

Sorry, Bogey.

From History of Confederate Flag:

First sewn in 1861 — there were about 120 created for the war — the flag was flown by the cavalry of P.G.T. Beauregard, the Confederacy's first duly appointed general, after he took Manassas, Virginia, in the first Battle of Bull Run.

   Balogreene  The Confederate Flag is distinctly different from the Confederate Battle Flag (commonly known as Stars and Bars ). The Confederate flag carried at First Manassas was a field of (red or blue, I forget, probably red ), with a blue corner with several stars. It kind of looked like the original US flag from the revolution, but it was close enough to the US flag, it was redesigned.

   Safetydude  Bettijo,

You can get all the Swastika flags you want.
But celebrating our Southern heritage is verboten.

Is Bogey your rescue Siamese? He sure looks good for being a throwaway. You're both very lucky.

   Alice  I don't know what part of the country you are in, Bettijo, but from Texas across the South you can find the Confederate battle flag along with many others for sale here and there along highways in or near small towns. Of course the ones displayed are much bigger than Bogey would need, and since we've never stopped for one, don't know if they have small flags at all. Maybe truck stops along interstates have small flags of all sorts. You might inquire at historical societies, too.

   Bettijo  Thanks, Alice. They had exactly what I want, a square flag to make into a pillow, and the price was right. BUT, they were out of stock. Will keep checking back. Thanks again for the link.

   Alice  You're welcome, Bettijo. I ran across it in another site's comment thread. Maybe I'll get one of the selection of small flags, too.

   Balogreene  We still don't have air-conditioning ($4,000 is more than we can come up with, considering all else we've come up with ). So, today, since it was still over 90 (all month ), I took Ukiko out for an adventure.

We went to McDonald's and got a glass of ice water, and a totally plain cheeseburger for Uki. I keep a bowl on the floor of the front seat, so filled it with cold water, and gave Uki the burger and cheese. (She had not eaten her breakfast, but was happy with the burger ).

We then drove 40 minutes or so, near my work. The old Lorton Penitentiary has been turned into an Arts Center, with a Farmer's market on summer Sundays. Not a great farmer's market, but, since Uki and I were just trying to get out of the house, it didn't matter.

We then went near home to a pet store. Uki wanted a HUGE rawhide bone, bigger than herself! After a couple of minutes, we went home, Uki was nearing Sensory overload.

She and I had a wonderful adventure, loving, talking, just having fun. It was funny, at the Farmer's Market, I was talking to her as we walked, explaining where we were going. A man behind me said "As if it understood". I don't know what she understood, except she was with me, I was paying attention, and we were on an adventure!

   Balogreene  Isn't she cute, those big baby eyes. She's 6.5 yrs old, but looks and acts like a puppy. She's an only child (except for four cats ), and thinks she should be worshipped! I try to spoil her a lot. I also chat at her, whether she understands or not, she knows I am paying attention.

   Bettijo  I have adopted a 9 year old seal point Siamese male from Siamese Rescue Organization. He lives 800 miles away in Morehead City, NC. He will travel via a relay of drivers to Greenville, SC, and I will pick him up there and bring him the rest of the way home. I am really impressed with this organization! They are all volunteers, but are better organized than many corporations. Check out their web site to see the beautiful animals up for adoption. http://www.siameserescue.org/

   Safetydude  Congratulations!

Of the half dozen, or so, cats that have owned me the two seal point Siamese were the most fascinating. Both of them were throwaways and they were so loving.

You're going to be tested every day. They love to climb and one day you'll come home and find him stretched out on top of an open door. Don't ask how he got there, just accept it. It's a Siamese thing and they won't share their secrets.

Also, be prepared for a demanding VOICE, after all they are royalty, and when they purr it's as loud as a lawnmower.

Please post pictures and let us know how His Highness is getting along.

   Bettijo  Oops! Just noticed a mistake in my original post. Morehead City is only 500 (not 800 ) miles away.

I have had two Siamese before and know how different they are from normal cats. That is why I wanted another one. They are more intelligent, independent, and yet affectionate than any other cat I have ever had. I will pick him up tomorrow and report back.

   Safetydude  Tsk,tsk, Gerty,

In today's America I don't think you are allowed to ask that question. They love each other, that's all that matters.
