Bacon Makes Me Smile

Standard

Well friends, I’ve been depressed lately……………….why you might ask?   Sadly, it’s mostly because all the fun I’ve had with my fellow Cat Scouts has ground to a painful STOP because of major site problems.  All the language I’ve heard about what’s wrong and what needs to be done and who will be doing it and why goes right over the top of my ginger head – I am NOT NOT NOT a “techie” so whatever the problems are (and there are a lot of them), I don’t know what it takes to fix them.  All I know is that it’s been over a week now and I’m not the only Cat Scout who is suffering severe withdrawal.

Gosh….this photo gives me the creeps Mom….but I guess it DOES make me look like a very pitiful Cat Scout!!!

So, what’s a guy to do when he’s feeling LOW??????   The answer is to enjoy something near and dear to our hearts………yep……….and for me – you know that means BACON!!!!!!!

 

A mile-high bacon sammich!

A mile-high bacon sammich!

I told Mom to make sure and keep a good supply of the crispy, crunchy stuff on hand because who knows how long the Cat Scouts site will be dysfunctional????  A while probably……………so until I can get back there and have more fun with my buddies, I guess I’ll just be munching away.   Oh and probably pouting…….I’m very good at pouting – just ask my Mom!!!   This does remind me though – remember I made a badge for all of you who want to declare your love of the wonderfulness of Bacon?  Here it is again if you forgot to copy it when I first shared it – help yourself……………bacon is the best medicine for depression in Cat Scouts (and ALL cats and other animals in general!!!!).

BACONBADGE

So there you have it…………………I’m drowning my sorrows in bacon today.   However I want to make it clear that should Cat Scouts ever be back up and operating again, I will cut back on my bacon usage to the normal state of things – Saturday is Bacon Day……..in the meantime I’m having it as often as I can get it to keep my spirits up!

Have A Bacon-Filled Caturday!  

Sammy

P.S.   Today is Henry’s 7th Birthday at My Three Moggies – make sure you stop by and wish him a HAPPY one!

    • Hi Dezi…..I hope Denmaster gets her house finished soon and finds someone to help with the problems on the site soon too. I know there are a lot of us TRYING to keep in touch but it’s not easy is it. I was just on the site though (VERY VERY slow) and was able to post a message in Wildcats and at Campfire but it took FOREVER for it to post. I’m trying to be patient – we all are!!!! Have a super duper Caturday though!

        • Dezi I think it will be just a few more days before Denmaster gets things FIXED…..I don’t know what happened with the programmer or any of that other stuff BUT she did say on Facebook yesterday that she has the new host and things are going to be GREAT in “a few days”……….so I’m going to TRY (!!!) to be patient just a while longer and I hope everyone does. I agree – we all keep up with each other on our blogs but Cat Scouts is SPECIAL!

          Happy Sunday!
