It’s gonna be another hot one today….even with the heat, Dad just left for the airport to give his airplane a bath. Yep. Seems even airplanes have to go through that procedure at least once a year. Better the plane than me is what I say! I’ll probably lounge around on the front porch in the shade with Mom a time or two but I just might stay INSIDE in the cool today. Like Mom says, it’s nice to be retired!!
Two people found me in that picture Mom and I posted in my blog yesterday – – good for you two! Here’s a highlighted (I’m the STAR!) area of that photo so you can see where I was hiding out….
I guess it’s still hard to see me but close to the center you can see me – looking to my right, white neck/chest and in the picture I look dark orange or light brownish (although I’m a RED tabby!)….got my eye on a chipmunk I bet!
This morning my girlfriend Stevie showed up for a handout. We hadn’t seen her for three or four days but I know she has other spots she visits AND a home somewhere. Mom gave her some fresh water and food….she munched down, drank some water, then off she went. I wonder what it would be like to just roam around anywhere I want to…..but then again since I’m a nervous kind of guy, I prefer staying close to home with my parents. When I was a little guy – maybe one year old – Mom let me wander down into the woods by myself….just because she wanted me to know how good I had it in my nice comfy house! Well, it wasn’t long before I was running back to the back yard and up to the back door and crying to come inside……!! Scaredy-cat? Maybe….but at least I know that by sticking close to home, I won’t become some other animal’s meal as many around here have. No sireeeeeee…….I’m happy to be a “house cat” !
