Sam and the Flag Banner

Sam And The July Fourth Banner

That danged banner flapping in the breeze!!

I asked Mom to take this picture yesterday so you could see the flag banner I was complaining about.  Yep – when a breeze comes along it makes quite a racket!  Even more irritating than the howling beagles next door.  HAHAHA  Actually, if I have to be totally honest, I’m now used to the banner.  I’m as patriotic as the next cat really…..I would even let Mom put a red/white and blue scarf on my neck if we had one!  I tolerate the Halloween and Christmas scarves so why not one for the 4th???

Speaking of the 4th – there was one fireworks party in our neighborhood last night – but it didn’t last long.  Thank heavens!  Just a lot of noise – not even those pretty fireworks that pop in the air with nice colors – just the noisy kind.  It’s not even the 4th yet so I bet there will be MORE as we get closer. 

I’ll try not to be such a big ‘fraidy cat like I usually am when the fireworks go off.  After all, I’m a big boy now – I’m eleven years old – so I should be more tolerant of humans and their need to celebrate stuff – right? 

Happy Saturday!!

  1. Oh no, Sam, the heck with being tolerant, that is a finely-tuned double-edged sward that tolerant word. Better still, do what makes you comfortable when the fireworks begin, go to the “special” place you have always gone and wait the insanity out. Tolerant. Starting to be an obscene word.

    Mom might not like this posting. Think I’ll go find my “special” place and curl up for a while.


  2. Hi Uncle Jerry…..nope – Mom totally agrees with you on the tolerant thing…..! Especially when it comes to the “you know what” next door! I’ve already got my hiding spot all ready to go when I need it – next time the doorbell rings, or someone knocks on the door, or a helicopter flies a little too close over the house or WHATEVER including fireworks noise, I’m THERE!

    Have a nice Saturday with Zoe Uncle J !
