A lil whine with my morning....

OK, Hamster has been located and taken back into custody and after a night out of the habitrail I am sure he must be happy to see that exercise wheel and a fresh bottle of water! lol The hand held vacuum has captured the 'trail' that was left 'behind' (pun intended of course) and all is well in Utopia.......


Speaking of Utopia.........


I want to share the life and travels with a kinda new blogger to me........she is living the life I want to be living in say another 10 years or so......empty nester and vagabond!!! I am so jealous of this woman's life right now I could just spit......but Momma always said it was impolite for a lady to spit! "Lady" now there is a term I have a hard time relating too! lol I blame it all on my Irish heritage....Now my Mother is and has always been a lady, me on the other hand doesn't take any offense to the term 'Broad' lol lol lol I can be very lady like when the occasion calls for me to be, but I can hang with the best of them in almost any circle or any situation......ok, back to Utopia!


Right now Utopia for me is in the Burbs of Chicago.....nothing but subdivision after subdivision, grant it it rivals the neighborhood of "Desperate Housewives" but there is nothing of Mother Natures' true beauties to see with the naked eye. I have access to some grand old farms within a car ride, but no mountains, no vistas, no oceans............no NOTHING! (insert sniffle, then a whine here)


I have the Great Lakes when I need my beach addiction, I have a beautiful Chicago skyline brought to you by "Man Made" but other than that it's just plain ole............FLAT out here. Southern Illinois is much more green and 'hilly' for lack of a better word, but the only time I go south is on the way to the In-Laws and that doesn't generate a 'warm fuzzy feeling' except when I get alone time with the SIL'S down in Kentucky.......LOVE those girlzzzzz!


I was blessed for the few years that I did get to move around and take in as much scenery as one could....Born in Boston, 2 years spent in England, time lived in Texas, Florida and New York (upstate) Catskill Mountains..........(insert sigh) and then back to Chicago. (home of my Father's Family) Where I met, fell head over heels with and married a Chicago boy who will never live anywhere else but here or Wisconsin! But with true love one does have to make sacrifices don't they??? lol lol lol In the meantime I will live vicariously through the windshield of the motor home of Adlessor!


So without further adieu please stop by her blog for some really great scenery and remember to add her to your alerts if you want to see why America the beautiful, is a song that the author knew what they were singing about!

Whenever a hamster goes missing the best places to look at in corners... corners of everything especially closets and even sometimes laundry rooms.. Also the best time to find them sleeping in some said corner is durin the daylight hours..I used to have hamsters.. all my life as a kid.. and they usedto get out of their cages all the time.. habitrails areone of the easiest cages for them to get out of simply because they will chew through those plastic rings.. and free themselves..or the top.. the best cage for a hamster although not as pretty is a standard aquarium fish tank..with some bedding and a metal wheel but be sure to check the wheel often so as if it gets stuck they can also get out that way..lol*In which case having a secure top on the aquarium is vital.. :) Like you probably didn't need this long comment but I figured..what the heck..why not.. :)Mel

I used to have a hamster that freaked me out...he would scratch frantically at the sides of his aquarium. I kept tellig myself, "he can't know what 'out' means, he comes from generations of caged animals"
Once he hit the high road, we never saw him again!

I'm so glad you found your "critter" (ha).  And, I'm glad you "pimped" the journal also.  We just bought a new motorhome last week and took our first trip this past weekend.  It will be fun to get acquainted with people who live in theirs and travel full time.  We still have a few years before the hubby will retire, but we decided to go ahead and get it now and enjoy it part time and be paying for it while he's still working! (ha)

Take Care,
