First in a Thousand Years

  Drat.  Looks like some misbegotten "scientist" has discovered the nest before we're ready.  Sigh...  Much as I hate to do it, I know what my darling mate will say if I don't.  (Eve always was the bloodthirsty one in the family.)  Oh well, it's not as if I'll waste him.  Breakfast -was- a few days ago after all.  Well, maybe a quick fly-by first..  Noooo, sounds like he's already transmitted information to his crew at the top of the cliff.  I was hoping I might be early enough to scare them off with a "freak of nature" rockslide or something but he's already spread the news too wide.  I'll have to take them all.  Silly humans.  They still

Flikka - Rescue Mission Epilogue

"Flikka - Rescue Mission Epilogue" By: Ed Conen  05Sep2019 – 25Dec2019 *  The Wet Dog Saloon was busy this night and filled with a low rumble of anticipation.  A close couple would have to look quick to find a pair of seats together.  A party could forget it; they’d be looking all night.  An old basset hound, his mate, and his grandpup had a table all to themselves right at the edge of the stage area, and no one could figure out why.  “Who are they?”  “Just a local ship chandler and his family, I think.”  “How does a common merchant like that rate a private table at an event like this?!?”

Flikka - Rescue Mission Pt-16

 "Flikka - Rescue Mission Pt-16" By: Ed Conen  15Dec2018 – 20Aug2019 *  Security Team 2 arrived in sick-bay minutes later, with a trauma nurse in tow.  Contrary to commonly held expectations, they did not slam the door open and charge in with weapons charged and ready.  This ship’s Exec was rather proud of his security department’s up-to-date technology, training, and practiced efficiency.  The ship’s Captain had made sure their budget was healthy, and the Exec made sure they got the most out of that budget.  When security arrived they had already checked the room via the computer, which reported room R-6 to be un

Flikka - Rescue Mission Pt-14

"Flikka - Rescue Mission Pt-14" By: Ed Conen       08Jul2018 *  “GASP!”  Flikka’s eyes flew open and she automatically grabbed for her helmet, struggling to breathe!  And then she realized her breathing was easy; easy and... wonderful!  Flikka arched her back and stretched her arms wide, sucking in all the wonderful, intoxicatingly fresh mountain air she could hold.  And then she realized two other things.  First; stretch her arms as wide as she could, Flikka could not touch the sides of Bitey’s cozy little cockpit.  Second; her pilot’s suit was gone and she was lying on a bed under a light blanket, a ̵

My Bio
Single, male, 62! years old.

EDIT: 19Aug2017...
New kitty! "Izzy" is a 15.3 lb calico (female, of course) with very pretty marking pattern. Yes, she does have "cali-tude" too. Why do you ask? :-)
Izzy was my great-aunt's last cat. (Aunt Fanny loved cats and flowers.) Where those 15.3 lbs came from depends on who you ask. Mom says Izzy was noticeably fatter at one time!
Anyway; Aunt Fanny died a few years ago at 104 years. She still drove herself to work every day up until about 97 years. Mom and her husband had moved in with her several years before that to help her stay at home.
Eventually Mom inherited Izzy. After that, my sister moved in to help Mom & Elmer. At some point they decided Izzy was causing respiratory problems for someone. Just who, again, depends on who you ask. Now Izzy lives with me. I guess that makes her a true "family heirloom"! ("hairball-loom"?) :-)
Izzy is a sweet girl, and a talker. She almost has a kitten-chirp kind of voice instead of actual "meows". Cute! I am working on slowly bringing her weight down. Mom and/or Nancy would give her -10- kitty treats every day. I give her a maximum of 2 at a time, and those not every day. Since she no longer knows when to expect treats, she does not beg for them, but still loves what she gets.
(Hmm.. Is there a way to add a pic to this section?)

Anyway; just thought y'all might like to know! :-)


EDIT: 10Jan2017...
For those who care.. Chanur died quietly in November of 2016 at just over 17 years of age. I've had him and his brother, Morgan, since they were 3-week-old kittens and I fed them from a bottle. Morgan died in 2015 and I miss them both very much. I still look for them to lick the soup bowls clean. ;-)

I have one very old house-cat named Chanur. His brother died about a year-and-a-half ago. Chanur was named after the main family in CJ Cherryh's "Pride of Chanur" series of sci-fi novels. His deceased brother, Clueless Morgan, was named after a character in the movie "Muppet Treasure Island".
Various hobbies, and they keep changing. :-)
