Can you fill me in? by sighthound on 17 October 2009 2:28am
Now that the California Legislative session has finally ended, I'm getting back to having a life again (and palinstravels is the first place I'm returning to!) I've got 1600 messages at my chatmark and there is no way I can get through them all. Can anyone fill me in on the most important things that have happened here since my last chatmark on 9/7?

I hope that your hard work has paid off, Geraldine!

A few things that have happened here:

Michael's new book 'Halfway to Hollywood'published. Lots of booksignings and talks (I got my book signed at Selfridges and attended a talk/interview at the National Theatre with Kisch and Linda from this site and another friend).

Kazzz has moved house again so is offline for a while.

Our son Simon and his wife Kat are expecting their first baby next March!! :) Kat was in a car crash on Thursday night (see thread "WHAT a week!") but baby thankfully seems ok.

My cat Garfield died due to renal failure. Don and I are upset and Snoopy is not happy either.

I went to Acadia National Park, Maine, for a week and had a great time.

Last night I saw AC/DC in Washington, D.C

We had a 30 hour power outage here during a storm this week so I read 2/3 of "Halfway to Hollywood", reading by a camping lantern. It seemed very appropriate somehow even if the travel docs are not covered in this volume. I envy you, suzulu, for being able to get your copy signed! (And the work paid off 90% which is way more than we thought would happen.)

Congrats on the new grandchild, Anne! So glad he?/she? and Kat are OK.

My deep condolences about Garfield, Terry. The march of renal failure is relentless and so hard to watch. The two aged cats of my relative I take care of are in the middle stages of it. I'm having to give them sub-Q fluids several times a week. I foster kittens for a rescue and we're keeping one (maybe two)of the latest batch to help Marlys get through the the inevitable loss of her old cats. Not a pretty thing to watch. So sorry....

Sounds like a great vacation, patty!

Linz, if you're reading this, I tried to send you an e-mail but the address I have for you is not working. My address is in Vitals (take out the spaces).

So good to be back!

Thanks, Sighthound,

I've cried buckets since he died. It's hard to get over a pet, don't you think?

Pets are family, Terry. I still cry over ones I've lost decades ago.

Welcome back, Sighthound!

I'll endorse the welcome back to G. She really is the smartest arse in Smartdom.
* Not that I've ever seen a pic of G nor her arse but since she's Californian, I think it will be a trim arse. * :)
