Hon, it could be worse. Really! We've had 4 straight days of sub-zero temperatures and that crap won't let up until the end of this week.
Saturday, it was -45 with the windchill while it was a balmy 2 F in Fairbanks, Alaska.

on and minding my own business when this turkey ignored the give-way sign (yield) because he was on his phone. Not only did he trash my life, but he stole the dvd's i was carrying on the bike (other photos clearly show them in the back on the back seat of his car).

Yeah im still pissy at this lol - mainly coz the effing cee didnt just not apologize, but refused to take responsibility at all! Even his barister (high paid legal counsel) apologized, but his client was an asshole and he told me so lol.

this is Ricochet, the bird is a mockingbird (the Texas state bird)
for the past 3 years, this bird has been doing this to Ricochet and he just takes it, most of the time he doesn't even flinch
I caught him in a rare moment lol
the bird can't tell the difference between Ricochet and Precious, so he'll do this to Precious too, but with much different results, she's gonna get him one of these days! lol
and poor Pei Wei, she wants so bad for the bird to do that to her, but she doesn't look like the other 2 lol
*and yes, I need more practice with the video mode of the camera lol :blush:

Ahhhhh how cute ,, maybe the temp's were too high for Ricochet to react and figured the bird would eventually leave and looks like it did since it couldn't get a fight :pillowfight: which is a GOOD thing as Ricochet would have torn it apart I am sure,, and Ricochet probably said :snigger: when it flew off

the bird only leaves when I show up, as soon as I'm back in the house, the bird returns lol
most of the time, Ricochet doesn't even look at or acknowledge the bird in anyway, I've see it bump him in the butt over and over lol

I vote this Worlds Most USELESS Cat" lmaooooooooooo

Over here we have a nasty ugly brown bird perhaps 6 inches bigger than the thing in this video called a "Wattle Bird". They don't just flitter about over cats, they terrorize them, pick out fur (probably eyes too but i've never seen that) and will attack a cat in squadrons until hapless kitty runs n hides lol
