rickolsen: I just brought home 2 cats. Star, a female and Stormy, a male. Both about a year old. Maybe they can coax Colby out if he's still alive. $25 for both of them together.

rickolsen: Colby still hasn't come out. Star and Stormy are so friendly. Star is laying on my desk with me. Stormy is laying on a folded up table across the room. That is his spot, but he comes over and lays on my lap for his fair share of pets.

rickolsen: Star and Stormy are doing well. No fear. They've made themselves at home. Still no Colby. Star likes to lay on my shoulders behind my neck. She's there now.

rickolsen: It's hard to find mixed nuts with Hazelnuts also called Filberts. I found some on ebay so I ordered 2 jars. They are arriving today. 32 ozs. They have Brazil, Cashews, Almonds, Pecans, and Hazelnuts.

rlhamil: Hazelnuts are in short supply or expensive, and have been for some years now (pure hazelnut butter no longer available). Some may be production problems, but Ferrero buys 25% of the world's hazelnuts for Nutella and their Ferrero/Rocher candy.

rlhamil: Turkey produces 70% of the world's hazelnuts, and for years has had political and economic problems. And recently bad weather has seriously damaged their crop, although that doesn't explain earlier scarcity of some hazelnut products.

rlhamil: TJ's has nuts at good prices, but they don't sell online and I don't think they're near you. They have hazelnuts separately, but I don't recall them having mixed nuts including hazelnuts.

rickolsen: My Impala died Monday. Unrepairable. Gave it to the tow truck driver in lieu of the $90 towing fee. Yesterday I got a 2016 Chevy Equinox. Delivered to my driveway. Didn't have to go anywhere. Car payment now, but oh well.
Oct 12, 2023 11:09:34 GMT -5
rickolsen: My Equinox 105,000 miles. Beautiful blue. Beautiful car. Not a speck of rust anywhere.
Oct 12, 2023 11:11:07 GMT -5
rickolsen: Still no Colby. I'm sure he didn't die because I would have smelled him, but he doesn't eat or drink much. He'll come out some day. Star is sleeping laying in the litter box in the living room. I've never had a cat do this before, but that's her spot.

rickolsen: I just went into the bathroom. Colby ran out from behind the toilet into the dining room. He didn't look unhealthy. I mean he didn't look skinny or anything. I don't know where he went, but at least I know he's okay.

rlhamil: RIP James Breedwell (pre-AGT Jackie performed with him (search YouTube) and recorded his "Teaching Angels How to Fly" on PTAD).

rickolsen: I was just in the kitchen. Colby came out and I petted him.

rickolsen: I think I told you how Bumblebee died and then Animal Control came and took my cats away from me. Now Montcalm County has charged me with animal cruelty. I have to go to court. I'm terrified. I face a $2000 fine and or 300 hours of community service.

rickolsen: The Judge can also forbid me from ever having cats again which means having the cats I have now would be illegal. I am so scared. Colby is laying in the litter box in the kitchen. He isn't hiding anymore, but he hasn't come out of the kitchen.
