Happy Friday! It’s been a most interesting week around here……not that there’s been any particular excitement, but it was just kind of busy. I was, as always, a BIG HELP.
My Mom had to hold down the fort (aka house) while my Dad prepared for the annual inspection of the airplane. Dad likes to
play mechanic assist the maintenance guys who do the inspection by removing panels, etc. ahead of time so the maintenance guys can do their thing more quickly! Then Dad swears a lot calmly puts everything back together afterwards, thereby saving a few bucks. The inspection went perfectly (of course).
Stevie the “yard cat” and Freddy the Frog are getting pretty chummy apparently. There are many theories being tossed about as to WHAT precisely their relationship consists of……hunting buddies, some kind of funky romantic thing, total coincidence – but the fact remains, they are quite often found TOGETHER on the front porch in the morning in the dark. This morning Mom found them out there AGAIN. She didn’t bother with taking a photo – you know this “dynamic duo” by now – but they WERE together again when she put some food out there for Stevie this morning. (WINK WINK)
On a sadder note, I lost a very sweet little buddy of mine this week. Bingo from Hutch A Good Life went over the Rainbow Bridge unexpectedly. If you don’t know the boys from Hutch A Good Life, let me say they are my first encounter with guinea pigs and they are totally adorable and so much fun to read about. Anyway, my kitty heart goes out to Bingo’s other brothers and their Mom. If you don’t know them, you should stop by.
Today is housecleaning day as you all know by now – or “Monster Out Of The Closet” day as I personally call it. That means a lot of shuffling around as I stay clear of all that flurry of activity……I’m doing MY part in the effort though – taking care of my tissue pile and my toy box.
Other than that, my Mom is planning a visit up to West Virginia to see my Auntie Carol and her two doggie children, Mollye and Toby. She’s only staying for the day – it’s a two hour drive – but you’d think she’s going for a month! There’s a shopping bag in Mom’s studio that’s starting to fill up with “stuff” to take….I’ll have to keep an eye on it – don’t want any of MY things accidentally winding up in Mollye and Toby’s toy box by accident!
That’s about it gang………I’d better get on the move……….Mom’s starting to dust down in the family room so it won’t be long before THE NOISE starts up. Better find a quiet spot – like the BASEMENT – while I can!
Happy Furrrrrrrrrrrrrrriday to you! 😀 😀
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
