Lazy Friday


Why lazy Friday?  Well because I’m planning on being a lazy bum today……………..that is after the monster stuff is done with of course.  The noise machine will work its’ way through the house slowly but surely – dust bunnies will be removed and/or pushed around and THEN and only THEN will I be able to move into “bumhood “……………. snoresville …………… naptown ………….. snoozylvania !!

Sam Sleeping (again)

My whole sleep routine has changed through…………..you will remember that I had a couple of years of enjoying afghan tents up in my Mom’s studio – every day when she was painting/drawing/writing I’d camp out under the afghan and sleep while she worked.  Well, I am no longer a big fan of the afghan tent.   No particular reason – I just like to keep my parents on their toes and make them wonder what’s going on in my ginger covered head.   Part of that is changing up my routine – nothing worse than being PREDICTIBLE!   So now I sleep other spots………….and my Mom never knows WHERE she’ll find me (unless I’m on her lap of course).

Also Mom asked me to thank those of you who have recently ordered her mystery novel from Amazon either the Kindle version or the paper version because she’s had notice of some sales and it HAD to be you!!!   Anyone who has yet to read her mystery novel, “The Mystery of David’s Bridge” – well you’re missing out on a treat.  Even though I’m her “kid” and am bound to brag on her, I must say that complete strangers STILL write to her to say how much they like it – so if you’re one of the few who hasn’t read it yet – just click on one of the links on my sidebar.  Give yourself a treat.  You deserve it.


Yes that's my Mom's own painting on the cover!

Speaking of books, you all know Bailey the Boat Cat who is now living full-time on his boat “Nocturne” with his parents in lovely Italy????   Well his book “Bailey the Boat Cat” was launched yesterday and he’s so excited he can barely stand it.  Mom says she remembers when her first book was launched and it is indeed an exciting time – BUT, now that his book is available, you should consider getting it because it’s BOUND to be a fabulous read.  The adventures of a cat who lives “THE LIFE” on a beautiful sailboat????   Oh yeah….you betcha – it’s going to be a big hit.

Hope whatever ELSE you have to do on your Friday, you manage to include some “LAZY” in your schedule…………….it’s what we cats do best!!!  Why change???   It works for us right gang??


Hugs, Sammy the Snoozer

Happy Caturday!


Hi Peeps!  This is going to be a “potpourri” blog – lots of different things all jammed into one.  The first thing I want to do is post a photo of me as a baby.  Why?  Well, I have two new friends who are youngsters and I’ve said I’m now a senior citizen but once a long time ago I was a kitten myself!


Alright - so I'm even MORE of a handful now than I was when this pic was taken!
Daddy and me when I was a little guy…..

And when I was little, I liked to fall asleep on his lap like this:

Happy Father's Day Pop!
On Dad’s lap…well, sort of….I’m kinda slipping down a bit!

Of course now that I’m older, I kind of prefer my Mom’s lap – Dad’s “on the go” all the time and while my Mom IS busy, she’s more willing these days to SIT STILL so I can get a great nap accomplished lying on her warm lap or legs on top of the blanket!

Another thing I wanted to say is that Mom mowed the lawn today and did a LOT of weeding in the front garden.  Of course I supervised from the shade up on the front porch, but it looks nice – thanks Mom for making my view so pretty from the porch!!

Trimmed grass – check! Weeded garden – check! Mommy gets a treat for working so hard – check!

And today my friend Savannah of Savannah’s Paw Tracks showed a photo of her Mom’s beautiful old quilts and her teddy bear from when she was a kid!  How cool is that?  Well, I remembered that my Mom’s old teddy is here in her studio – up on top of her supply cabinet – and later this year it’s going to be 65 years old!  Imagine!  Older than dirt even…..but here’s a picture of it, complete with the substitute RED eye buttons her Mom sewed on when the original eyes fell off (RED?????):

A very old teddy bear

Teddy is 64 years old today…talk about OLD!

It’s kinda tired looking isn’t it?  Well, check this photo out – it’s a picture of my Mom on her first birthday when she got the teddy bear and her very own first rocking chair!

Teddy and Mom

He looked better back in 1947 didn’t he?!

Well, see what I told you about today’s blog?  It’s just “all over the place”…….it’s going to be a GREAT day though – weather should be perfect for front porch enjoyment and ANY day is a good day for some naps………..maybe a wander down Dad’s “in progress trail” too!  Whatever YOU do, make it a great day OK?

Kitty hugs from Sammy 😀 😀
