Well I made it! Survived the night in a strange place. Strange house, strange bed. And I had a surprisingly restful sleep. Considering I'm out in what I've deemed the boonies. I'm cat/house sitting for some friends this weekend and they built this big old house way out in the sticks. Oh, they have neighbors. Only the area is very rural and I'm used to living in tighter communities, or sub divisions.

Woody and Buz are not happy cats when their owners are gone. But at least they're eating and doing what cats usually do. Most of the time they stay clear of me. Buz will come around once in a while for a pat and then be off again. Poor Woody has health issues.

I don't do good at night when I'm alone in the house. The fact they have a security alarm and cameras has made me feel safe. I really had a hard time adjusting to there being no curtains in the windows to close when it got dark. But we're so far off the road and the surrounding trees probably kept any one's eyes from falling out when they saw me in my jammies.

Debbie/Tory...Glad you did okay. Will assume you get cell phone reception and that you keep it close. ~Nancy

LOL...I slept with my phone Nancy! And my car keys and the garage door opener. There was an exit door in the bedroom and I was ready!

Not hard to do in the crime ridden society we live in Marybelle.
