Shazaam Monday


Hi Everybody! Well, my hope to spend the weekend observing butterflies was a bit of a bust……until I told the universe that I planned to get Mom to photograph me under the butterfly bush this weekend, we were seeing bazillions of the little boogers……at least 10-15 covering the butterfly bush every day it was sunny. Who knew that the minute I SAID that, the butterflies would abandon ship and leave the area???? That is except for ONE butterfly.  One brave butterfly (probably the same guy who visited me Saturday!), there were no herds, crowds, flocks, or bunches of butterfly visitors.  Word travels fast around here.

Birds, and bees, but only one butterfly?  What's with that?????

However, I DID get a lot of out time……Mom and I were on the back deck for a couple of hours – her in the shade under the umbrella keeping an eye on me and me alternating between under her chair in the shade and out by my butterfly bush with a hopeful look on my face.  So fresh air was good and it was in the low 80s and really BEAUTIFUL.  Not a total loss, eh???

We’re sorry if we’ve missed commenting on your bloggy lately but as you know (or at least some of you said you had this problem too) good old Word-Depressed has got clogs in the mail delivery line lately so people are missing notices from blogs – it’s downright awful and if you follow a gazillion blogs (we don’t QUITE follow a gazillion but it might be a bazillion or so) it’s tough to remember to stop by all of them without those little reminders in your inbox!   I hereby cast a spell on Word-Poop…………………BEGONE CLOGGED MAILTUBES – BEGONE GREMLINS OF MAIL DELIVERY!   (gosh I hope that works and doesn’t backfire on me!!)


Hopefully my magic wand and spells are working right – otherwise it might be raining frogs here any minute…………..

I’ll let you know!   Tee Hee  

Happy Shazaam Monday!

Your Grand Wizard, Sammy



A Breath of Fall

Ahhh...fresh air...freshly mowed grass...flowers...and no bears, stray cats, or marauding squirrels to BUG me!

Doing my best impression of a cat statue….not bad huh?  Actually it was a picture perfect fall day out here in the countryside and Mom was wandering around taking pictures – I thought I’d cooperate and let her take one of me almost PERFECTLY centered on the welcome mat.  You know me – I couldn’t resist being just slightly off-center….. 🙂

The weather gurus say we will have a return to more normal for this time of year temperatures later this week along with some arriving rain.  We’ll be in the 60s instead of the 80s.  I can dig it.

I see Mom and Dad haven’t polished the brass kickplate on the front door in a while.  Hmm…I need to remind them to do that.   I would look SOOOOOOOOOOO much more handsome with a shiny brass background, don’t you think???

Mom finished working on her cover for the new kids book yesterday.  It looks pretty swell.  If she can get a picture of it that I can share on my blog I will do that.  I know you’re DYING to see the final result after I teased you with that photo the other day.  HAHA  I know – I’m just a big tease huh?!

Happy Monday – and Happy Columbus Day from an explorer in his own right…………Sammy
