Calbayog City Brown Out Kittens
Well it’s only 0730 and already something has happen this morning that has not happened around me since we’ve been here. I’m sure it has happen, many time, but I just haven’t experienced it, here, until now. The calico cat that has been hanging around, the one I’ve been calling “Calvin”, well I guess I should have been calling ‘her’ Calvina or something similar. She had kittens this morning. Yeah we already knew she was pregnant, but I just didn’t say anything until now. Lita says she thinks Blue is the daddy. She just thinks that because they are always hanging around here all the time. She could be right though. One of the kittens has the design of Blue. “Calvina” was a ‘very’ fraidy cat when she was first around here. She has gotten better, especially around me. What can I say, I can charm the ladies from all kinds of species. Anyway we have kittens, about 1/2 hour old at the time of this note writing. The number of kittens is unknown at this time, but it looks like 4.

It’s raining. It’s been raining. It rained all night long. I’m out here in LolyKat listening to the rhythm of the falling rain. Hey, that sounds like the makings of a song. What? Oh, someone beat me to that one huh. Oh well, maybe next time. I’m wondering how many people will bother going out, much less going to the store. It’s a dreary day, but I like it. I would not want every day to be like this, but I could go for 2 or 3 times per month.
One of the electric fans that we bought from the fan guy gave out on us yesterday. It’s not the first one we bought, the one I use in the computer room, but the second one we were using at night in the bedroom. We’ve been using it instead of me carrying the one from the computer room into the bedroom when I done in here. Well guess what, I have to do that again until we get that fan fixed, which probably won’t be until we return from Tambis. Maybe even after returning from Texas.

Two of those kittens are fighting, or maybe playing rough. It looks like they are boxing. There must be more than 1 teat there, I don’t know what they are fighting about. Maybe that is the “special” teat.
Well Crap! Here we go again. Brown out 0951.
About 10:35 the electric came back on, but instead of me being at the computer, like I was when it went off, I’m stuck back out here in LolyKat. I sure got the bad end of that deal. I did get to take a nap after about 2 hours in the store though. After taking my nap I got up and headed back to the computer. Just when I had it all up and ready to do some things … yep you guessed it Poof! Brown out again (2:35pm).
It tried to come back on about 10 minutes later, but that only lasted a couple of seconds.

So now, to be in my shoes, it’s raining, Lita has a headache and she tells me about it every 20 minutes, a customer is playing his music too loud (then talking over the music), Blue came in the store to lay down next to me (and he thinks we are buddies), Calvina looks at me funny when she’s with the kittens (as she is now), there is constant traffic going by that’s making too much noise (muffler people), we have very little business here in the store and there is no good beef here.
All in all, I’d rather be on the computer (while the electric is on). Oh great now the music turned to Rap Crap. It’s time to go hide in the house for a few minutes to get a change of scenery.
At 4:05pm I thought, forget this. I got up from laying on the bed (hiding) and closed the store. I figured I’d rather be in the house working on these notes, away from everything, even though there are still no lights.

At 4:10pm Lita said her headache was gone (that goodness) and she needed to go downtown. It looks like we will be having chicken adobo again tonight, darn it. I told her that I don’t like the small pieces of chicken, I hope she remembers.
I’m going to write some more notes, then think of ideas for e-books and for the new website.
At 4:52pm, we have power again. I wonder how long it will last this time?
So I got up, turned on the computer and just as soon as I got it up and did a couple of things, guess what?
No, you’re wrong, but we did have a big enough power spike that it made the computer go off. Maybe I need a new surge protector because that sure didn’t protect me from that surge. It just knocked me out right quick.
We did have adobo, but some of the pieces of chicken were too small. There was only 1 breast portion because Lita saved on for me to use tomorrow for lunch and the vegetables. That was nice of her.

This coming Thursday morning is when we are suppose to be going to Tambis. It looks like I’m going. I’m going to make an attempt to do a video of the trip. I’ve never tried that before, so it might be a little screwy. I’ve already asked Lita to remind me about the camera. She told me today that Titing might be getting a van rented for just us. I heard P500 per person to travel all the way to Tambis. That would be worth it in a nice air conditioned van.
I’ve been listening to the Eagles Greatest Hits 1975. I’m on the second time around right now (Lying Eyes).
It’s 9:33pm at the moment and I’m at the end of this post. I hope y’all are still reading and it didn’t bore you much. Now I have to come up with a name for this post. How did I do with that I wonder?
