Hi Gang! It’s me……..the old guy who’s been sacked out for the past three days since my vet checkup. I’ve not exactly been a live wire that’s for sure – spent more time than ever in my afghan tent sleeping/snoring away. My Mom and Dad were worried about me. But this morning, when Mom came downstairs to make coffee – I was waiting at the bottom of the stairs with my striped tail straight up with its’ customary curl at the end and I ran into the living room right to my tissue pile asking her to play with me.
She did of course…….we played “hide the toy in the tissue” and “where’s Sammy?” with me hiding under the tissue……then she went to my little red wagon where I keep my toys and pulled out some stuff I hadn’t seen in a while – almost as good as getting NEW toys when you see some of your OLD toys again!!
I was particularly interested in a piece of ribbon – an OLD piece of ribbon in fact – one that I’ve had for TWELVE YEARS! The red ribbon in this picture of me:
Mom said “who needs NEW toys when you can rediscover your OLD toys” !! Know what? She’s right. I have a lot of toys and tend to play with whatever is the newest thing…..but those old favorites are pretty cool too. You might consider giving that a try yourself everyone! Go dig around in your toybox or wherever you stash your toys and find something you haven’t played with in a while……!
I’ve been thinking about my contest and what it will be – there’s a lot of blogging buddies who are having contests and stuff right now so I’m going to wait until later in the week when things calm down a bit to announce MY contest. Besides, I haven’t quite decided WHAT it will be……(tee hee). Send in a suggestion if you like – maybe YOURS will be better than MINE!
Meanwhile, I thought you’d like to know that I’m feeling a lot better today…….it’s Monday – let’s make it a good one OK gang??
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
