Spying on Mr. Monster

Standard

Happy Monster Day!  Most of you know it as FRIDAY but since my parents insist on doing housecleaning every Friday, it’s Monster Day for me.  Today I believe I’m going to try to be brave for a change.

This seems like a safe spot to observe Mr. Monster....

This seems like a safe spot to observe Mr. Monster….

Except what if Mr. Monster gets too close to my newspaper and sucks it right up?  No no no that will NEVER do!

Now up here, Mr. Monster can’t reach me…..this has possibilities…..

If I get up on Mom’s bed, I’ll be out of reach from Mr. Monster but won’t I still HEAR him?  All those fireworks last night made me nervous enough…..do I want to go through that drama and trauma again?????

Keepin' Cool INSIDE!

This is always a good spot….under my Dad’s chair at the dining room table. The Monster will go right by me here…..

But there’s still the NOISE factor to deal with…………………….I know – I’ve got the PERFECT idea!!!!!!!

PURRRRRFECT!!!!!!!!

Happy Friday (or Monster Day) to everyone……….and don’t forget the search continues for a home for Leo…………….(Please visit Savannah for Leo’s Page with details) and please spread the word if you haven’t already.  The more people who know about Leo needing a home the better!

Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀 😀

    • Hi Mollie! My Mom and I hope you all have a nice Friday too! It looks like we’ll have another sunny day so after the monster goes away I plan to see if my old Mom will escort me out into the yard for a sniff and a grass munch.

    • Hi Sundae….your Motor Mom and Man are SMART to keep those headsets on so they don’t ruin their hearing around the noisy cars!! Humans are SO smart sometimes aren’t they?

    • Monster has been out – done its’ thing – and is now sleeping in the closet for another week (I hope!)………..my Mom loved reading Mr. Craig’s write up on Naked Eye Travel about Seville – – – she said that table looked VERY familiar! 😀 😀 😀 😀

  3. I love the idea of Monster Mufflers!! Hope the housecleaning isn’t too traumatic today. But I’m sure a little snack of grass and a sniff of outside air will make it all better!

    • Well I survived the monster yet again Miss June……I think I’ve got that thing figured out – AND the headset of course helped – I just danced around the house listening to music while Mom pushed Mr. Monster here and there. That’s the BEST invention ever!

    • Hi Maurice!!!! Good idea pulling the plug – I never considered going to the SOURCE to stop the noise…..running away from it seemed to be the best way but pulling its’ tail out of the wall is even better!!!

    • Hey Cody – give the headphones a try when things get too noisy around your house….they work…..and you can listen to the latest tunes and practice your moves (hee hee).

  4. We hope you had a great 4th of July, Sammy! I guess you shouldn’t be so scared of Mr. Monster anymore. After all, you’ve been successfully dodging him for how many years? We love the headphones!

    • I am getting good at “dealing” with Mr. Monster. I thought I was in big trouble a few years ago when my brilliant parents decided to have a vacuum cleaner on every floor rather than dragging one around all three stories but things have worked out – I have hidey spots on ALL three floors and now headsets – things are QUIET around here!!!!!

    • Hi Easy! I’m telling you, these earphones are great! Can’t hear a thing except what I WANT to hear…..I figure I don’t need to hear anything anyway – my nose tells me when there’s food available, my eyes tell me if there’s anything worth spying on, so I don’t need to hear. However, when the monster was finished sucking up all my hair and some of my toys (good grief you’d think my Mom could DRIVE that thing better than she does and avoid my toys!), I took the headphones off and could hear stuff like birds which I do enjoy hearing. So the headphones will only pop on when monster Mom’s doing her thing. So you avoided monster day huh? Good for you……will your Mom be bringing you some surprises back from the city????

      Happy Friday

      • I think I should buy this earphones too and not only for monster-day :o) Yesterday I was waiting for hours for my mom. It was SUPERSALE everywhere and I thought she will stay in the city forever ( or till the sale is over). As she came my patience was exhausted and I started my Weimaraner-self-service with a giant bucket of Ben&Jerry. I have not much experiences with self-service so I ate the lid first ( was more so-so) and as I started to eat the ice-cream they nabbed me. Next time I know it better :o)

        • Uhoh……….Easy my friend the trick is NOT to get caught! I can’t blame you for the Ben & Jerry “boo boo” though because ice cream is ever so yummy. I’d have done the same thing. However I wouldn’t have eaten the lid too (too much roughage in my diet gives me the…..well…..you know!). I hope “Madame Mom Supersale” got you some new toys while she shopped??????

    • We’ve been super lucky – when the weather high from the ocean pushed the big band of rain further West (to where you are I think…. 😦 ) we began seeing SUN, SUN, and more SUN. Today it’s sunny and 90 and rather breezy. We really were TIRED of all that rain and wet wet wet…..Hopefully it will let up for you too – flooding is NOT a good thing! TIme to start your family ark!

  7. I can’t tell you Sammy how many times my noise cancelling headphones have saved CH from my whining. I can’t stand noise unless it is my own. I take my headphones with me when we travel and I use them to drown out CH’s TV watching. I just put me some Smokey Robinson on and I am a happy person.

    • Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit…..we thought Thunder Dunder was a really beautiful guy and we wish we’d known all of you before hearing the sad news. I know it’s very hard to lose a member of the pack – even knowing they’re in a beautiful place across the Bridge doesn’t help sometimes but Thunder will keep a protective eye on you ALWAYS! You’re so sweet to write to us – we’ll certainly stop by your “place” from time to time to say hello….give each other a hug – life truly is so very short.
