Sunnycat

Amanda’s cat, Sunny, whom the Mercer family has had for eleven years or so, was put to sleep today.  Apparently she had some pretty bad cancer.  It was on her spine, one of her lungs was almost non-existent and her liver had just about calcified.  She wasn’t eating and she was using the bathroom downstairs because, as they discovered, she didn’t have the energy to go upstairs. Sunnycat and I had a funny relationship.  Sometimes she’d like me and sometimes she would hiss at me and try to bite me.  It probably goes back to one time when I threw our chihuahua Bruce on her to get them to antagonize each other.  I don’t think she ever forgave me.

Caesar Salad, Spaghetti and Duplin County Hatteras Red

I now have two meetings tomorrow. I had a lady call from Goldsboro who asked a number of questions about designing a site. I guess I answered her well enough, so now she wants to meet with me. My other meeting is concerning a Blue Cross website. We do the website of the number one agent in North Carolina. Since he gets all his business from his site and these facts have been brought up to oher agents lately, we’ve been getting a lot of calls about such sites. I realized today while I was being very busy that this week seems to be going by pretty quickly. That wouldn’t be bad, I guess, except that it’s so busy because …

Don’t Go Near the Sea of Cortez

So work has been generally busy lately. To add to the stress of overseeing at least ten projects I’ve got a lot of things scheduled this week to help make sure I don’t get ahead of the game. On Thursday I’m meeting one of the clients whose site we’re doing, tomorrow I have to take our cat, Cobb (Mr. Cobblepott), to the vet. And then there was today. Back in Novemeber I was in talks with the dental office where my uncle-in-law, Barry Frazelle, works. (Okay, so he’s a partner.) Anyway, I was going to take pictures of the staff and facilities and we were going to redo their website. Unfortunately, someone left a sink on and it filled up …

Xbox DVD Instruction Video

I had a bit to do with work today and saw several projects move forward a bit. I went out to get my paycheck and took it to the bank. While I was over that way I stopped by the post office to mail my sister, Andra Dotsey, the phone charger she left here a couple weekends ago, but I forgot to bring her address and of course her phone was dead. Not a whole heck of a lot else to report. Amanda’s mom, Karen Mercer, and a friend of hers, Miss Susan, will be staying at our house while we’re in Kentucky for a few days for the Fourth of July. Amanda started to write an instruction book for …

Cookout at Ben and Jessica Lambeth’s

Today started like many other Sundays in the fact that we went to the 8:30 service at Port City Community Church. The only different was that neither Amanda nor I got up as early as we usually do. Amanda noted two weeks ago that one of us didn’t have to get up before the other anymore, since we now have a house with two showers. She tried getting me to get up first, but being too tired to bother, I remembered that little tidbit and went back to sleep for a bit. I thought the service was really good today. The music and the people were energetic and had a sort of charge, and Mike Ashcraft, the preacher, started a …
