Hi Friends! Seems like it’s been one of those busy periods in blogland don’t you think? Birthdays……contests……comings and goings and in the case of our friend Nerissa (Nissy) at Nerissa’s Life, a serious knee surgery after a fall. Then of course yesterday was Austin’s birthday – what a party THAT was……….and Mollie became Patron Saint of Blogville in a tight race between herself and Doggy. Gosh – it’s enough to take your breath away isn’t it?
Well, you might like to know that at least ONE of us here in blogland knew how to spend the day properly yesterday…………………
DO NOT DISTURB!
I had to wait for quite a while though in order to get lap access. It was a beautiful sunny day (same as today is!!) and Mom and Dad worked out in the yard all day long. Mowing (finally), trimming (gosh it needed it BAD, DAD!), planting (Mom got a few things at the nursery yesterday morning), and then and only then did I get some time with Mom in my favorite RELAXATION spot.
One other unusual thing happened and I’ll just have to tell you about it. Mid-afternoon I asked Mom to let me go out through the kitchen door onto the back deck. I knew it was sunny out there and I thought I’d like to park my derriere on the deck and snooze a bit with Mom keeping me company. Just as she opened the storm door we saw something fall down onto the deck from above us – it made a noise when it hit the wood – what was it???????????????????? Believe it or not it was a tree frog. A light gray tree frog about two inches long. He looked confused, I looked confused, and certainly Mom looked confused. Where had he come from???????????????????? Did he jump off the roof? Did he fly through the air with the greatest of ease and crash land on my deck? What’s the deal? Dad says he thinks the frog had climbed up the siding on the house – tree frogs climb after all – and perhaps when we opened the door it startled him. Well I can tell you there was SOMEONE who was startled and it wasn’t the frog!!!! Anyway, that was the most exciting thing that happened to me yesterday.
Speaking of frogs, no sign of Freddy or Freddy, Jr. yet. I sure hope they’re still around. You might remember my talking about them before. They’ve lived around my front porch for two years now and things wouldn’t be the same without them.
This is “Big Freddy”
This is the smaller guy who had the same coloring as Big Freddy so we call him Freddy Junior…..
Gosh I hope they’re still around………………”push the frog down the sidewalk” is my favorite game in the summertime.
So as I said, today is another gorgeous day so I told Mom she needs to take her flashy thing which she insists on calling a camera outside and take some photos of the yard now that it looks halfway decent. I will bug her until she does so tomorrow we’ll be able to bore you with YARD pix!
Hopefully today we’ll hear about Nissy’s surgery……………..keep your paws crossed he’s doing well.
Kitty Hugs, Sammy (Mollie might be the Patron Saint of Blogville, but I’m the Patron Saint of NAPS!!!!!)
Sam’s the name….napping is my game !
