Oh my word. Threes so much fun. And so very addictive. I love it. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Bookmarklet
A family of cats has taken residence at our house. Sadly this is probably the closest we'll ever get to having cats as pets. I think they're cool but Wifey's not a cat fan.
Plus I'm very allergic. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
There's Momma Cat, Black and White Cat and Grey Cat. We worked really hard on those names. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Can you call a cat rescue to come get them? - Tamara J. B.
That's a good idea. I'll have to see if we have anything like that around here. It's pretty rural out this way. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
If nothing else a rescue group may be able to trap/neuter/release, to help prevent future litters. - vicster: hon. canadian
Very helpful info guys. I'm completely clueless when it comes to pets. Never had any growing up other than fish and turtles. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
All I'm seeing is dog rescue organizations in the area. We could take them to the animal shelter but they'll be put down if no one adopts them there. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Looks like the county Humane Society conducts rescues and adoptions. I'll reach out to them tomorrow. It's been getting really cold the last week with more on the way. They've taken to living in the crawl space under the house for warmth. They really need to be in out of this weather. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Great advice, everyone. :) - AHnix (Anna Haro)
So I heard from the Humane Society. They said since the cats are feral all they can do for them is what they call TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release). So they'd basically be put back on the street to fend for themselves. So much for finding homes for them. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Don't know the conditions of the crawl space, but a feral cat shelter might be better for them for staying warm and dry. Loads of ideas here: - Bash
Here's one I just built for kitties in the office park where I work. - Bash
That's great. I'll get to work on this when we get back from Thanksgiving next week. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Rudy Giuliani doesn’t understand crime: The former New York City mayor is misinformed about the facts of black-on-black crime. -
Rudy Giuliani doesn’t understand crime: The former New York City mayor is misinformed about the facts of black-on-black crime.
"On Sunday, during a Meet the Press panel on the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, Rudy Giuliani reminded the world that he is an unserious person. Responding to a question from host Chuck Todd on diversity and policing (“How do you make a police force look like the communities they serve?”), the former New York City mayor—whose police department was embroiled in racial controversies throughout his tenure—raised the specter of black crime. “I find it very disappointing that you’re not discussing the fact that 93 percent of blacks in America are killed by other blacks,” said Giuliani, challenging the whole discussion of police violence. “I would like the attention paid to that, paid to this.”" - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Bookmarklet
Kesha and I talked about Ferguson (only a few miles from where she grew up), Mike Brown and the killing of Tamir Rice in Cleveland last weekend over dinner tonight. Linky was playing on the floor at our feet. We were both overcome with an intense sadness when we looked down at him. The sadness stemmed from the knowledge that he would have to...
grow up in a world where the killings of Mike Brown, Treyvon Martin, John Crawford III and many, many others still happpen on a regular basis. A world where he can and will be treated with suspicion simply because of the way he looks. We came to the conclusion that all we can do is strive to protect him and keep him as safe as possible. Kesha's response to that was "How do we protect him from the people who are supposed to be protecting him?" I didn't have a response to that which in turn made us even more sad. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I wrote about this very thing yesterday on my blog. - Corinne L

The Parable of the Unjust Judge or: Fear of a N*gger Nation
"Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’ “For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’” Luke 18:1-4" - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Bookmarklet
In the days after Michael Brown’s death, we watched a sadly familiar story play out. The media ran pictures of him staring sullenly into the camera and making “gang” signs with his hands. They emphasized his weight and large frame, listened to his music and declared it “violent hip hop.” For their part, the police made certain to pair pertinent details about his death with seemingly... more... - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Black people desperately tried to defend Michael Brown, pointing out that he was a child, that he was gentle, that he never got into any trouble, that he was going to college. If we fail to name the battleground being fought upon, this fight over what narrative to impose on the details of Brown’s life might seem oddly tangential to the argument over the circumstances of his death. So... more... - DB, Lil LB's Dad
The terrifying racial stereotypes laced through Darren Wilson's testimony - Vox -
"Of course, it's impossible to ever know Brown's side, because he isn't here to tell it. But we have learned quite a bit about him, as well. He was "no angel." He had marijuana in his system when he died. He was college bound. He stole cigarillos from a convenience store and "strong-armed" a clerk in the process. He, at 6'5" and almost 300 pounds, was remembered by loved ones as a gentle giant. But now that a grand jury has declined to indict Wilson in Brown's death and St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch has made publicly available all of the evidence presented to jurors, the picture has become clear. We have Wilson's version of the truth, and it's the version that will doubtless be codified as the account of record: Brown was no gentle giant. He was a "giant negro."" - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Bookmarklet
Ferguson isn’t about black rage against cops. It’s white rage against progress. - The Washington Post -
Ferguson isn’t about black rage against cops. It’s white rage against progress. - The Washington Post
When we look back on what happened in Ferguson, Mo., during the summer of 2014, it will be easy to think of it as yet one more episode of black rage ignited by yet another police killing of an unarmed African American male. But that has it precisely backward. What we’ve actually seen is the latest outbreak of white rage. Sure, it is cloaked in the niceties of law and order, but it is rage nonetheless. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Bookmarklet
Protests and looting naturally capture attention. But the real rage smolders in meetings where officials redraw precincts to dilute African American voting strength or seek to slash the government payrolls that have long served as sources of black employment. It goes virtually unnoticed, however, because white rage doesn’t have to take to the streets and face rubber bullets to be heard.... more... - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Linky in his Breast Cancer Awareness Month outfit at church last month. Cute overload.
One of my favorite pictures of him. - DB, Lil LB's Dad

Dude. - Pete
I just love baby boys in suits - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Yes. There's something a little man in a little suit that is enormously adorable. - bentley
We survived Linky's first haircut. He did pretty well all things considered. Props to the folks at Pigtails and Crewcuts for making it an enjoyable experience.
I want to smooch that kid! - Shannon - GlassMistress
I don't think we realized he had as much hair as he did. We ended up not going as short as I had planned. This was about all he would let us do pre-meltdown. We'll try a little lower next time. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Android
LB! - LB snowed in. from Android
What a doll! - Petty LaBelle
Adorable! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
So cute. Looks like he wants to get into EVERYthing. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
He wants to (and does) get into everything. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
He is such a cutie pie. (I went through your feed looking for more Linky photos. :-D ) - Corinne L

Gallo thought he was playing soccer. Moved on the throw in. Don't think I've ever seen that called in a bball game before. #LALvDEN
Yes!!!!! Touchdown Cowboys!! Romo didn't pull a Romo.
Linky got his second haircut today. We were a bit more aggressive with the styling this time around. He looks like he's ready to enlist. Private Burns reporting for duty.
His hair grows so fast! - DB, Lil LB's Dad

We're having a non-traditional Thanksgiving with the in-laws this year but "because she loves me" my Boo made us some traditional favorites yesterday.
It's nice being loved. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Android

Oh, man. I haven't had homemade banana pudding in ages. - Jennifer Dittrich
Wifey hadn't either. I may have strategically mentioned that during our errands yesterday morning. :-) - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Sweet Potatoes were baked for Sweet Potato pie bus alas they didn't get made. Wifey ran out of gas at the end. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Wait, what's going to be non traditional? Like tofurky or something? - Eric - Regulate
Just going to the casino to eat. That's not a Thanksgiving Day meal to me. :-( - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Yeah, but if it's the right buffet, it can be fun. - Eric - Regulate

The elusive Black Seadevil is ready for its closeup -
"Does this bizarre-looking fish look familiar to you? The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute captured what it says are the first images and video of a female anglerfish, known as a Black Seadevil. With its jaw agape, exposing what appear to be fangs, it lives up to the name "Seadevil." But if you've seen the 2003 Pixar classic, "Finding Nemo," you might recognize the Seadevil as the fish that creeps up on an unsuspecting Nemo and Dory." - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Bookmarklet
