My basement this morning. It seems that someone must leave the house for something to finally break around here. Tom is in Arizona so something broke, the water line to the fridge. I was wondering how the water got sprayed all on the one side of the room from the ceiling down.. Yup, the water line comes out right over the laundry tub. Needless to say a bunch of stuff is on the deck and it is Muggy out today not hot to dry stuff. Also the dehumidifier is working over time. (Tom remember to empty it when you get home.)
$125 later it is fixed and the guy even replaced the filter for the ice water, yeah hopefully it will taste better now....
I have to run to work now.

A girl from Cavy Compendium sent me two sock things for the pigs to play and hide in. This is Lenny enjoying some lettuce. I think that shade of green looks great with his coloring. Cutest pigture ever...  Posted by Picasa

Redid the big cage.

I noticed some of my pictures are weird a couple posts down, but I don't feel like fixing them now.... Maybe later.

But I do have new pictures of the cage. Winslow did not like living on the floor. So, Tom and I redid the big cage to split it between them.
There are now 2 upper lvls and ramps, it is split down the middle as a zig zag... Lots of stuff to go around...
Yes, there are blue cubes, that was what I found on sale at Target a while back. I was ready to have to redo the cage. Oh well.
To clean, Lenny and Squiggy go in the pool and Winslow on the floor; then the center peice comes out and every thing goes outside to shake and then into the wash.
I am pretty sure I have enough towels and stuff for full out changes. Now I just have to schedule time for a bath. Everyone is getting a little stinky again..

The official date for the Summer Party at Our House is JULY 8th..

I would like to know who can come, leave a comment or email me.
I also need to know how many people are Vegitarians.. We are working on what to make for that. If you would like to bring something to pass, it will make the food choices more interesting...
I will have a some alcohol. We will have some wine, I have been trying to collect some. We will have Smirnoff Ice in different flavors and I think Coronas for the beer drinkers. If you hate all of that, bring your own..

Finished with the Roof!!!

They finished the roof last night while I was at work, so I did not get a picture.
I got home at 9:30 and it looked nice...
Here ya go...

I really like the green. It looks good with the shutters and everything in the front. I had to adjust my angle and lighten up the picture of the back, because the sun was almost straight at me.

Doesn't the deck look nice?? The top sheets are a little different than the old ones, but they are clean and let in more light.
I think they did a lovely job..

Busy here......

Ok, so they are doing the roof right now.

Plus they are working on the deck, replacing my roof there. Tom's dad brought over the power washer and the whole thing got cleaned and now they are putting everything back up.

And because I am doing pictures, You have to see the cutest pigs in the world...
Yes, it is a cat bed or something... They are too cute...

Winslow wound up with a bite on his side.. Don't think him and Lenny can live together. Nope, not gonna happen. So, it is just insane here. Talk about it later.

Hurray, No surgery!!

Lenny Piggie is very happy today. No Surgery on his Bum..
I have been redeemed as a good piggie mommy. Through the antibiotics and the hot compresses to get the blood flowing, we managed to get rid of the Abscess.
The vet was very impressed and his boo boo looks 500 x's better.

He will have to live alone until it completely heals, but I think he is ok with that. We traveled all over today and he got to see lots of people.
He wasn't happy to see the Vet in Canton, but he was a good boy.
Then we went to Ann Arbor to see Naarah and pick stuff up. I held him there and gave him goodies and he tribbled like a good piggie. Then we drove north on 23 to 96 and back to the Novi store to drop off a camera. One big square trip today...

If he had surgery I was going to Hit the new Ikea store in Canton, but no luck with that today. Although I hear it is still insane there. Have a great weekend..

First - Happy Belated Birthday MOM

Second- I have some very interesting news...

It seems that I took a girl piggy to the vet today and came home with a boy piggy.

Yes, feel free to laugh all you want. Haven't you ever just went along with something because more than one person told you something..?? You just didn't think about it after that.
I guess that is the case here. I just didn't think about it much.

So, it seems that everyone I have are boys. The vet claims, "Thier testicles stay up in their abdomen a long time." SURE THEY DO.....
I am going to give him crap next week about not noticing when I brought everyone in before the neutering. The "Girls" were only about 5 weeks old at the time..

So, what are the new names... Come on, you can figure it out. I should come up with better names, but Lenny and Squiggy are the most appropriate names for the situation.

So, these once tiny little 500 gram piggies are now 1000 grams, like 2 pounds and have testicles... hmmmm

Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you WHY, Lenny went to the vet. I noticed that a bite mark hadn't healed, dang that long hair. Opps, I am really bad. He now has a big abcess and will probably have to have surgery next week to get it out. OUCH. He was one ticked off piggie when the vet brought him back to the room.
So, now he has to live alone until this stuff gets healed. arg. No wonder they are had little fights.... oh well, life is always entertaining....
(The abcess is not life threatening, but it is staying an open sore, so it has got to go, he is on antibiotics for the week.... sigh.)
