The Rain that Didn’t

Standard

Yep – even on radar/Doppler yesterday it showed RAIN here………almost all day supposedly our town was in the middle of a big huge batch of rain…..did we see it?  NOPE!  Not a drop – not even a splash or splatter or squirt.  NONE – ZIP – ZERO.   Now why am I even making mention of that?  Because my Dad, believing the weather dudes, bought some lawn fertilizer that needs to be watered in ideally…….so of course he put it down – with an 80% chance of rain who wouldn’t???!!!

Strangely, even now because I just checked yet again, the radar/Doppler show RAIN HERE AGAIN this morning.   I realize of course that it’s probably evaporating before it gets down from the rain clouds but heck.  Dad’s wishing he had done what he usually does which is IGNORE the weather forecasters.  So much for trusting them “just once” right?  HAHAHAHA

WEATHER

So I survived the housecleaning and mostly because I knew if I could live through that, it would lead to BACON DAY……and here it is…..in all its’ glory.  Bacon Bacon BACON!

 

The bacon decision-making process.....

The bacon decision-making process…..

Nothing on our agenda here at the Kimmell Mansion for the whole weekend so I think I’ll have Mom and Dad’s undivided attention.  Not that an almost non-stop napping kitty needs a whole lot of attention of course…….with my medication I’m now taking for my wonky thyroid, I’m napping a bit more than usual (I know – how can you sleep more than 24 hours a day???  Right???).  I’ll eat my breakfast which will be bacon AND raspberry yogurt then head for my tent.

What a life huh?

What about you?  Whatcha doing this weekend?  Anything exciting??   Having a party??  Need me to teleport over and liven things up with some dancing perhaps?   I think I shared this video of me and some of my cat buddies before but just in case……………..ENJOY!

Me and My HAPPY Friends!!!!   (click here)

 

Hugs and Bacon for all!

    • Hi Fozziemum! I hope the after effects from that fall of yours aren’t tooooooooo painful today! We just read about it and saw your frosty morning photos (brrrrrr). It’s 65 here this morning at 6:15AM and we think it will be a cloudy day. Maybe Mr. Rain will visit us today? Dad says “don’t count on it!!!”……..HAHA I think you might have seen the video before – it’s me and some friends dancing and singing to that fabulous song “Happy”…..pretty sure I posted it when we first did it. Please take care of your ouchies!!!!

      Hugs, Sammy (and his Mom)

  4. We got about one hundred and three drops of rain yesterday on our way to the grocery store. Just enough rain to mess up CH’s wash job on our vehicle! We NEED rain! Bacon day for you Sammy! We are changing things up this morning and having sausage patties, biscuits and cream gravy! CH knows your Dad’s pain with the fertilizer. We are taking it easy here at The Tiny Ten too after two trips into St. Louis. We don’t want to see the inside of a car today!

    So, Sammy, do you think after your ginger self gets use to the dose of thyroid meds you won’t sleep as much? In any case, enjoy the naps and enjoy your Saturday with or without rain!

    • One hundred and three drops is one hundred and three drops MORE than we got!!! Although last night we either had a HEAVY dew or a few drops of WET….not enough to do anything including wash in my Dad’s lawn food stuff. Sigh. I hope you get your wish and don’t have to travel today – maybe travel out to the porch for WHINE (!) time later like my Mom and Dad but not to run errands or go anywhere. On the meds – I won’t even know for another week or so when I have follow-up blood work whether this ONE pill is working or if I’ll have to take TWO. We’re hoping I can stick with one…..if extra sleepies are the only side effects I get I’ll be lucky….some of the other side effects are NOT good!!! Keep your paws fingers crossed that ONE will do the trick.

      Sending you huggies for a snuggy Saturday!

  5. we had a lot of rain the whole night, although the weather guy predicted the other thing. Enjoy the bacon with raspberry yoghurt… hope it will not have the same side effects like my mom’s cheesecake… butt wait there is no bacon included :o)

    • Hi Easy! So far I’m loving the yogurt thing – haven’t noticed the medication but then Dad crushes the pill to DUST before it gets mixed in my yogurt. I’ve been eating yogurt for YEARS and so far so good with the “non-cheesecake” after effects. I hope it stays that way…….so does Mom….because she doesn’t have a good alternative to yogurt for hiding my pill!! Bacon – YEP – I’m loving it – too bad my pill doesn’t come in BACON flavor!

      • I’ve got pills once with beef-flavor. It was such an anti -pee-o-tic thingy… and it were the same pills mom’s BFF got as she visited cuba and became sick there.. fortunately we both survived that adventure… and by now we are not sure who got the wrong pills. Think she was the one, it makes no sense to add beef-flavor to pills for bipeds..

        • I agree……now if they added beer flavor to bipeds pills I bet they’d all love it……HAHAHA…….I think if they made my pills in shrimp flavor I would be gobbling them down and wouldn’t need yogurt for Mom to hide the pills in!

  7. LOL, what a great dance video. You’re a riot Sammy. I’m glad there’s medication to keep you healthy too. I’m feeling a little sleepy myself. Petals and Blossum woke me up at 4:30am!!! geez Louise. What’s a Boomdee gotta do to get some beauty sleep around here? LOL.

    I bet that weatherman’s feeling really silly about now. They have a 50% chance of being right about it, so that guy is probably feeling pretty un-lucky. Poor ol’ weather man.

    • HA! The weather guys around here are really AWFUL…..or CONFUSED…..or SOMETHING……this morning there was an 80% chance of rain – it’s now a 10% and not a drop in sight. Oh well…..we can hope for tomorrow anyway. There’s ALWAYS HOPE! Mom gets up every morning at 4:30…..yep – she’s wacky that way….actually that’s “our” time together while Dad still sleeps…..QUIET time before the bear awakes!

  8. We actually did get the rain and lots of it. Can’t trust those weather guessers, though. Rest up today, cause tomorrow is birthday party day at Cat Scouts. Our humans had bacon today, and none of us got even one bite. We did try some new foods today that we are supposed to review. The two picky eaters, Giulietta and Fiona, turned their noses up at it, and C.J. hurled. Guess that one isn’t going to make the cut. Several others still to try. Have a good nappy, Sammy.

  13. It’s rainy season now in the Philippines and storms are coming in and out as usual. Nothing new. Grampa used to ignore the weather forecasters. When they say it’ll rain, Mr. Sun shines like it’s summer. When they say the weather will be bootiful, it will SURELY rain. It’s okay to have some rain showers, just not too strong that will cause some areas here to flood.

    • Hi Sushi! I too hope that while you’re expecting lots of rain, you don’t get any serious flooding….that would NOT be good! We’re still waiting for rain here……the weather guy says maybe today – we say “yeah…sure!”….HAHAHA The best thing to do about weather predicting is just keep your eyes on the sky – at least that’s what we think………….nice to hear from you dear friend – hope your paw is better??
