May The Bacon Be With You

Standard

Just In Case You Didn’t Remember……

That’s right – it’s that wonderful day of the week at my house – the day the bacon comes out of the refrigerator and Mom whips up some breakfast for herself, Dad and yours truly, the honorable kitty guy!!!   I hope all of you have a chance to enjoy this remarkable and delightful (and crunchy) substance and to that end I have THIS to say…………………

BACONFORCE

Those of you who are Tabby Cat Club members who are Cat Scouts will be familiar with the Drive-In movie night we had at Scouts not long ago – it was a major BIG blast……well, guess what.  Tabby Cat Club is having its’ OWN Fifties Flashback Drive-In Movie Night on July 18th.   How cool is that?  TCC peeps, put that on your calendar – the CB will be sending out a notice ahead of time but you’re hearing it here FIRST!!!!   It was so much fun doing the “Retro” thing though that in Scouts we’ve decided to have a Sock Hop.  We’re even having it in a high school gymnasium – That’s going to be on July 11th at Cat Scouts.   Don’t worry – I’ll be sharing photos of everything – you know I will !!!

Me and my TCC buddies, Gracie and Raz

I put the Sammy Kimmell seal of approval on some Amish-made furniture that my parents bought a few weeks ago which was just delivered……….we have a brand spanking new picnic table, AND two wonderful rocking chairs on the front porch…………….cool huh?   When Mom let me out on the porch to see the chairs I did that silly thing we ‘fraidy cats do……….I walked EVER SO SLOW over with my neck stuck way out and my sniffer working…..I creeped up on the chairs carefully……didn’t know if they’d attack or not but I knew they were NEW and different from the old chairs……when I got to them I gave them the sniff test and they passed!   Mom hasn’t shown me the table yet but I can see it from one of the windows in my house so I’ll have to do the sniff thing another day.  ENOUGH EXCITEMENT FOR ONE DAY FOR THIS OLD CAT!

Hope you have a bacon-filled Saturday OR, if you aren’t a baconator like me, at least have a FUN Saturday OK??   OK!!!!

Hugs, Sammy

Surrounded by it!

  2. Hey Sammy, that is so cool that the Cat Scouts are now the cool group that other cats want to be like. Alas, as you know, no Tabbies here to enjoy another night at the Drive-in, but how fun for the remainder of you. We have similar rockers on our front porch. They are one of Lily Olivia’s, Mauricio’s and Misty May’s favorite spots to nap. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • I probably won’t be hopping up into those rockers myself – something about the “rock” part of rockers scares me – however with my newly discovered bravery (!!) who kows?! Yes, without a Tabby in the house, the TCC is out of reach for you guys BUT we’ll just be “re-living” the Scouts night and that was TRULY a blast!!!!!

    • Oh baby the bacon aroma is – well – FAB!!!!!! I hope you have a great weekend too Austin…..I’ll be attempting to scale the mountain that is that picnic table. Mom seems to think I’ll enjoy lying on top of it. That remains to be seen!

    • Cupcake I thought about that “tail under rocker” issue and Mom and Dad are always checking to make sure they don’t squish a tail out there…..they had BIGGER rockers before these out there and visiting kitties seem to like to get UNDER them so tails are available for accidents – so far that hasn’t happened but Mom and Dad are always careful.

      Happy Saturday!

  3. Every front porch needs rockers and a porch swing. We can’t figure out how to hang a porch swing on our front porch. Those are very pretty rockers and the cushions will be very comfy for a ginger cat and maybe a Stevie cat!

    • Hi Miss Pix!!! I agree about the swing and my Mom would LOVE to have one…..she remembers very little about her Grandma but there WAS a porch swing on the porch and she could swing for hours and hours……..the rockers are grand – Stevie has already made herself at home. I don’t think I’d trust anything that ROCKS but who knows?! I hope you had a good visit in St. Louis yesterday (and maybe a cheeseburger??).

  5. Oh boy, a sock hop? Great! my dad remembers that events, first the boys where to shy to ask the girls for a dance… and later as they were brave enough the event was over :o) do you remember the song for such events by Little Richards?
    All the flat top cats and the dungaree dolls,
    Are headed for the gym to the sock hop ball,
    The joint is really jumpin’, the cats are going wild,
    The music really sends me, I dig that crazy style :o)
    I agree new things need a well planned sniff-out… we have to make sure that there is no trojan horse inside or a man-eating woodworm :o)

    • Hi Easy! Yep a sock hop for a bunch of cats can you believe it? There will be a whole lot of fur flying at that!!! I think maybe I should have a sock hop on my blog for ALL anipals. What do you think about that? My Mom says she remembers Little Richard and all the music from that era (cave man days). Mostly because her sister was a bit older than she was and her sister MADE my poor Mom dance with her so she could practice for her dates. Otherwise my Mom probably would NEVER have learned to jitterbug!

  6. haha surrounded by your bacon. That is some lovely furniture. Luna is a pretty tough kitty but she does the long neck sniffy thing too. She is cautious. You never know. Have fun at your drive in and I hope to attend the sock hop if mom isn’t working.
