Now I will just make a few comments about my Lazy Sunday, before I show you the answers.

Even though the nasal rinse, that I wrote about in my previous post, didn’t quite work like it was supposed to, I only woke up once in the night, so that is an improvement.

Bobcat has been limping, and won’t put her left front paw on the floor. She is still eating well, but is laying around in dark places. I have moved her food tray out of my bathtub, so that she doesn’t have to jump up on her little step stool into the tub to eat. I have examined between her pads, and I can’t feel any swelling on her arm or shoulder. The online vets say that she may have got a claw stuck on something, and twisted a toe, which would heal itself.

She broke that arm 10-11 years ago, and they only left it in a cast for 4 weeks. I don’t know why they didn’t put another one on her for the other two weeks. She was in terrible pain that weekend, and you can’t give aspirin to cats. I was beside myself, and didn't know how to make her comfy. She has often had a slight limp since the broken arm, but not like this. When they X-rayed it they saw that she had a BB shot or something imbedded in her shoulder, so maybe that has moved, so I will get her checked out if she doesn't improve.

Modernaire Stove 005 (Small)Tomorrow, I have to get my little vintage RV stove packed up, as it is sold. It’s going to St. Louis, MO to be put in a 1948 Curtis Wright.

Ray and Shay, and my other neighbor, Zack, their son, are busy at her father’s place. He is 87 today. Gee, that is getting up there. All the family have come from far and wide to celebrate.

01. The Lone Ranger left behind a silver bullet.
02. The Ed Sullivan Show
03. On Route 66

Penny, great quiz! I must be really old because I got them all except for the one about Red Skelton!! Funny how those kinds of things stay with you for years and years.
