Wacky Weather

Yuck
Yuck

The past two days have been totally weird……………what’s that mean?   Well, at almost PRECISELY 3:17PM it has begun thundering LOUDLY – then five minutes later a MAJOR downpour, then it stops, the sun comes out, then five minutes later a dark cloud comes out of NOWHERE and we start all over again………………after an hour of being silly (!!) it settles into a nice, lawn-drenching rain for a couple of hours then STOPS.    So that’s not all that weird really but we think it’s just a LITTLE weird that it’s the same exact time and same exact pattern.   So there…….if I think it’s WEIRD than I guess it’s WEIRD!    HAHAHA

Samrain

One GOOD thing about the rain is that all this stuff Mom has been planting around the yard gets watered FREE of charge to our water bill.    That’s a GOOD thing.   Another GOOD thing is that along with the rain has come some pretty stiff wind – and why is that good?   Because all the seed pods/pollen pods, miscellaneous pollen from the oak trees and other “litterers” of the yard wind up having all that junk blown out of their branches and it flies through the air like it’s snowing a blizzard and lands on the grass………so instead of DAYS and DAYS of pollen falling, we get rid of it quicker in the wind!  Cool huh?   Mom and Dad  don’t have allergies to pollen thank heavens – nor do I – but even if you’re not allergic, there’s so much junk flying around it makes you sneeze anyway!

Shall I quit griping about the weather?  OK…….will do.   Besides, I think I said it all.

I’m working on my blogaversary party and I do hope all of you will at least be able to stop by my blog on Sunday even though some of us are ALSO celebrating Mother’s Day on Sunday.   It’s no big deal kind of party – just some food, drinks, and thank yous – my way of thanking YOU all for being my friends for four years of blogging!!!!    This is YOUR party….not mine.

Sam Loves His Friends!

Thankful for my friends

OOPS…….here comes some noisy  thunder so I guess we’re still in the “pattern” – I’d better go for now………..our power hasn’t gone OUT but it has “blipped” a little bit.   Blips aren’t good for computers you know!

See you tomorrow!

Hugs, Sammy

P.S.   Our hearts are broken to learn of our friend Nerissa’s passing over the Bridge.  MOUSES!

Nissy was  one of a kind………………..I’ll miss you dear friend……….

        • HA! The top of the head is such a nice warm spot – humans are so smart to push all their body heat out the top of their heads just to keep us warm! Actually I don’t sleep with my parents any longer – at 15 years old, my arthritis keeps me from those fantastic bed leaps I used to do. During the day though my favorite nap spot is on my Mom’s legs when she’s got the recliner up……it’s like having a heating pad to sleep on!!!! I think you’ll enjoy seeing the three kitties at Lone Star Cats. They’re a HOOT!

  7. I love the continual rain pouring on the window up there. I wish we could send 1/2 of it over to Alys. They are in desperate need of it. We had a wacky weather day yesterday too. You might have seen my FB page, but it snowed…..yep, buckets and buckets. Luckily it melted as it hit the roadways but lots of trees and everything else is still white today……gads! Don’t you hate when the power goes out in a storm? I worry about the sump pump. We’re actually getting a battery back up pump installed just to have some measure of comfort. tata 4 now xoxoxo

    • SNOW??? SNOW??? That’s not fair! It’s SPRING! I’m so sorry you got hammered with snow and your power went out and everything. Hope you’re all alright – a backup pump is a GREAT idea for “just in case”. My Dad has a little gas powered generator that only has enough power for the sump pump and our basement freezer – two very important things we don’t want to be without!!!!

Late this afternoon we saw the sun peeking out and Mom said, Quick. let’s get a walk in between the raindrops. Oops – we got caught in one of those downpours and there was no one home to come rescue us. So we just plodded along in the pelting rain. Needless to say, we were ALL soaked to the bone.

    • My Dearest Nephew………I’ve been blogging for four years and will begin my fifth year on Sunday. I can’t believe it’s been that long – just like I can’t believe I’m 15 years old! Nissy was a friend to EVERYONE and while we knew he was sick, we didn’t know the Bridge was calling him so soon. I hope one day when I arrive there, Nissy will be one of the first to greet me and take me to his primrose garden. I’m sure Nissy knew how you felt about him – he was a very smart boy. Thank you for saying such sweet things about me and I want you and your Ladymum to know that you mean the world to us too – you came to your Mom’s life at just the RIGHT moment and you’re growing into a wonderful young boycat before our very eyes. I’m proud of you and I know your Mom and all your other friends are too!!!

          • Dear Siddhartha……….I have no intention of going for a while longer. There’s lots more fun to have, and more blogs to write, and more love to give so I’m not going anywhere! We must remember that even though we lose friends or family that they really NEVER leave us. They are always there – just over our shoulder, or whispering in our ears, and they occupy a special little spot in our hearts forever. So, even one day when I am gone, you will feel me in the night breeze, or see me in a dream. Uncles are FOREVER. Nissy is watching over all of us now………

  20. We are heartbroken about Nissy. Though we found out shortly after it happened, we were sworn to secrecy until Mom Jennifer felt up to posting about it. We think all that rain is from the angels crying because Nissy had to leave us way before his time. It is absolutely criminal that the medicine Nissy needed is not available in Canada. He will absolutely live in our hearts forever and we will all be reminded of him whenever we see or hear, “MOUSES.” XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

When I go to the Bridge I hope to be greeted by all my old friends and I will smile SUPER big if Nissy is in the front of the pack.
