Alone Again….Sniff

Standard

Hi Everybody and a Happy Saturday to you from me!  Saturday around our house is usually very quiet.  Today will be no exception because my Mom and Dad are leaving me home alone.

Yep – every year our little town of Warrenton closes down Main Street (which isn’t very long anyway!) and opens it to foot traffic and tons and tons of craft vendors of every type and size and shape and specialty!  My parents ALWAYS go – rain or shine – and they’re usually gone for HOURS AND HOURS (ok…..maybe 2-3 hours….it just seems like forever).

On top of all of that they have FOOD.  That means they probably won’t be home until they’ve eaten a bunch of things they wouldn’t normally eat.  They head for the medicine cabinet and gobble down some Tums and say they’ll never eat “whatever” again – – but I know that next year when this time rolls around they’ll be right back there eating stuff they shouldn’t.  They say it’s all part of the FUN.  (Humans can be very difficult to figure out sometimes don’t you think???)

I thought you might like to see this picture of our town – it’s not a conventional view though – my Mom snapped the photo from the airplane while she and Dad were doing a flyover of the house.

Warrenton, Virginia as the birds see it!

So today I’ll just have to get along here at home all by myself….I’ll try to look as pitiful and forelorn as possible when they come back home.  AND – as a special “I love you” gesture – I’ll even try to be sympathetic when they head for the medicine cabinet to grab the Tums! 

Tee Hee – Happy Saturday!

  1. Aw, Sammy, I know how it is, buddy. My parents seem to be gone a lot too. At least it’s nice and quiet!
    Maybe they’ll see a vendor with pet toys and bring you a surprise!!
    Love, Sundae
    PS, if Warrenton wasn’t so far away, I’d come keep you company (wink, wink)!

    • Hi Sundae……I’m hoping maybe there is someone downtown today who’s got some cat goodies for sale….I’m just SURE my parents won’t forget “little old me” at home patiently waiting and hoping and dreaming (while napping on their bed)!!

      Hope you have a nice sunny window seat kind of day yourself Sundae Girl!

      Love, Sammy

    • You’re right Uncle Jerry but the “up side” might be that there COULD be a vendor in town that’s selling ultra potent catnip??? Or some new toy that I might like to bat around the house? We can only hope my parents remember I’m here waiting to see what they buy…… 😀

  2. I am sure they are going to have fun – I love street fairs – and you now you would hate to go along – too many people! Just let them go have their fun, and I am sure you can manage to make them feel a little guilty when they get back…might be good for some extra tummy rubs or something!
    Hugs, Linda

    • Hi Miss Linda! They got home a little while ago from the fair – said there were a bazillion people there so it was good they got there when it first started and got OUT of there before it got too crowded. They were very good parents too because they just had a good old plain, homemade cheeseburger for lunch instead of some of those exotic sausage belly bombs that my Dad falls for at street fairs! HAHAHA They had a lot of fun and now since they’re so pooped, I’m sure I’ll be able to get a nice, long lap nap once Mom “lands” in her chair!!!

      Happy Saturday

  3. Very cool aerial shot Sammy! Looks like a wonderful town you live in! FOOD! I am sorry but I would leave you alone too to go eat festive FOOD! You will get love and hugs when they get home and maybe they will bring you a surprise. You can always guilt your Mom into some Sammy lap time! Now go and get that tissue all in order, I know you want to… 🙂

    • Hi Pix! My parents got home a little while ago and they had such a great time. They got me some homemade kitty treats from one of the vendor too. YAY! Mom said the people food was yummy too – they didn’t get any kind of ICKY stuff…just a homemade hamburger – so they didn’t have to load up with Tums when they got home! 😀 It’s a gorgeous day though – perfect for a street fair OR a cat to go sit in the yard….which is where I’m going in a few minutes with my Mom!

      Happy Saturday!

    • Hi Miss June! They just got home and because they pretty much behaved themselves in the food department, no Tums were needed! They had fun but they’re pooped so Mom and I are going to go sit in the rocker on the front porch in the shade and chill out. Hope you’re having a nice Saturday???!!

    • Hi Miss D! Guess what…..my parents got back a little while ago from the Fair and didn’t go to the medicine cabinet! Why? They didn’t get one of those belly-bomb kinds of sandwiches this time – just a nice, ordinary cheeseburger – freshly made and quite yummy (so they say). AND it’s a perfect day too outside for a Fair (or even for a cat to go outside in the yard and lie around in the sunshine…!!!).

      Happy Weekend!

  5. nice home town Sammy…how cool your Mom and Dad have an airplane! Nice! And mine are going out tomorrow for most of the day…Mom is volunteering at a “Animals on Broadway(that’s a street in Walnut Creek) event where my former shelter has a booth…the Contra Costa Humane Society. Mostly a dog event, but there will be kitty stuff too

    • Thanks Sparkle! Warrenton is out in “horse country” – between Manassas and Culpeper. My Dad has only lived here but my Mom’s lived everywhere but likes Virginia the best. Me? I was born here and never even left this house except to go to the vets and the kennel but from what I’ve seen of it, this place has it all! LOL

      Kitty Hugs and Happy Saturday!
