Garden Overlords



Ah, the clarion call of Demon overlord, who at 6:20 interrupted my slumber with demands to be released, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW."

So I struggled up and trudged to the door, allowing the exit of my overlords.

Then I escorted the Hound to "his" yard to take care of "his business."

While all I really wanted to do was go back to sleep . . .  I proceeded out front to see what was what.

We got (quite a bit of) rain overnight:



So after deciding I didn't need to water, I pulled out a chair and sat to enjoy the breeze.

And the garden inspection began.

The first overlord walked through the garden and decided she was not pleased.  She rushed to inform me of her concerns.



She didn't even want to be still for a picture.  After expressing her dismay to me, she called for reinforcements.  I'm not entirely sure what the dialogue was, but the second inspector took a similar path.







Meanwhile, overlord three maintained a watch from her favorite spot on the driveway:



But after watching the first inspectors, she decided she needed to investigate:



She then called for reinforcements:

I am not *entirely* sure what the dialogue was, but I am pretty sure she asked that he distract me:




And meanwhile, the elusive fourth overlord continued her practice of perimeter control and overwatch:





Yes, just another day in the service of the kingdom . . . . .

      I love your overlords and hope you post more about them. I don't think I have ever seen a white cat with a calico tail!!! Your garden seems to be coming along beautifully!

We took the cat to the vet one time (it was a locum) and he sort of frowned when I took her out of the carrier.

Then he saw her tail.

He thought someone recorded her color wrong in the chart.

She has a couple small dark spots on her ears, a small smudge on her head (it looks as if it is dirty), and color on her nose.  Otherwise, it's all about the tail.

My tortie is gorgeous, but she has a grumpy effect and just doesn't photograph well.  (She's also very soft - I love her fur.)

Thanks for admiring the cats and the garden - it warms my heart. :)

      Ok, I am not going to say I haven't read the left leaning conspiracy theories about this shooting, even if I'm trying to hold off until we have more verified information.

      But I don't get where this "Biden sent the shooter" idiocy is coming from because seriously here? He has an actual job, with stuff to do etc. Now if you wanted me to believe Steve Bannon sent the shooter I would be more receptive, mostly because it's the kind of out there theory I can get behind.

      I don’t mind that they want to see people they love, but why the prevarication

      Doesn't fit in with the "we need a safe and stable home across the country " grifting theme. I don't think people would have donated as much if they knew there was a planned holiday in the middle, and I am wondering how many donors are now side-eyeing the hell out of them. Because that wasn't a small omission there, it was strongly implied that both flights were sequential and necessary to get to where they are planning to live.

      I swear if it turns out they've moved two suburbs away in Seattle... I will probably laugh. I doubt this is the case - why fly the cats? - but part of me is expecting to find out they've moved to Salem, Oregon, or Sacramento.

      It is possible for spouses and children of defendants in federal CSA/child porn cases to request (and receive) mental health services through the Federal Defender Victim/Witness programs. But the key detail is that it has to be requested and typically that happens in situations where the spouse is trying to separate/divorce from the offender.

      “The discrimination was awful, and TSA held us up for over an hour and made us late for our first flight.”

      My husband flies with his mobility assistance gear all the time for work, including into and out of Seattle. He says their claim sounds like absolute rubbish. Every interaction he has had with the Seattle airport has been professional, swift,  and courteous. 

      Over the years he has used a  cane, walker, manual wheelchair and power chair. At every turn the Seattle airport has been kind and competent, 

      Well we all know how entitled Artemis is, no surprise they figured they could run late and the TSA line would part for them like the Red Sea in the Ten Commandments because they have mobility devices and cats. The "awful discrimination" was probably other people who told them to wait in line and the TSA staff probably reiterated that using mobility devices does not give them the right to expect special treatment.

      Counseling would come from a different court than the criminal court Josh was in.  It would only be ordered due to a CPS investigation.
