Ferret Fun & Frolic - Clothing & Costumes

I wonder how ferrets fare on boats...

Do they just enjoy tunnelling or do they gnaw on things and get into mischief? I sometimes think that our cats are part ferret because of the way they enjoy getting into tubes and things.

Well, Halloween is almost here, soon to be followed by Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. Is your ferret prepared for the festivities?

Here's some interesting togs & costumes for your ferret from

Bandanna - - - - - Red Cap

Santa #1 - - - - - Santa #2

Sweater - - - - - Tee

Here's a post from 2010 that you may want to visit again as it has a couple of great ferret videos!

Check out yesterday's post for costumes for dogs and cats... plus Amazon Halloween Store

Wow, it's almost that time of year again... Do you have your Halloween costume?

Amazon's Halloween Store is having a 60% off sale. Such a deal! Click HERE

While they have great people costumes that look like a lot of fun, don't forget your pets. Dogs really make out...

Batman - - - - - Hot Dog - - - - - Pirate

Police Dog - - - - - Shark

The shark would also be good for Jimmy Buffet concerts!

While we did find some spiffy outfits for cats, you can try dog costumes in small or x-small...

Hula - - - - - Elf - - - - Tie

You can find more cat stuff HERE.

And what about you ferret aficionados out there?

Plus there's more ferret frenzy here... Costumes & clothing for your ferret friends.

Tropical Storm Rafael - US Virgin Islands

Well, I'm very happy to say that it is a beautiful morning today.

Yesterday was also a fine day (Rafael Day, part 1)... much better than the day before which was very breezy with lumpy seas. That's the type of rock & roll that I can do without!

Saturday's NHC 11am forecast had Rafael going right over the top of us (note the first "S"), but that didn't happen. As it was, if we didn't know better, we would not have had a clue that a tropical storm passed within 85 miles of our location.  I'm NOT complaining :)

So,  after another cup of coffee, we'll retrieve our extra ground tackle, redeploy our solar panels,  unbatten the hatches, and see what the day brings.

Hope we will have decent wifi (such an optimist) so I can check out some Android Apps from Amazon.

UPDATE: It has taken well over 90 minutes to do these few lines and trying unsuccessfully to upload a 28KB image. BroadbandVI is really the pits... We pay $60/month for this "service". This is why I haven't posted anything since July 1st. When we do have a bit of acceptable wifi, I have to do more important things first, such as update our websites, etc.

But, today is a happy dance day! Waffles for breakfast, too :)

So it goes!
