OK – who took my spring away? Come on – confess….who did it? I tried THREE times to go outside on the front porch yesterday and could only stand the cold wind and temperature for about five minutes before I came back inside lickety-split and sat by the nearest heat register! It barely got to 40 today – OK OK I know some of you are still hanging out in snow at this point but here in Warrenton, Virginia, it should be in the 60s AT LEAST!!! I wouldn’t have been surprised if, when Mom had opened the door, I would have seen this:
But I’m just kidding – no snow. Thankfully. We did get a few cold showers off and on though. Today is supposed to be warmer. We’ll see. No doubt I’ll be whining about it on my blog tomorrow if it ISN’T warm today!
So since it was cold, I did the next best thing to hanging around on the porch or back deck or yard………I took lapnaps courtesy of Mom!
Say....remind me why I wanted to go outside in the first place?? THIS is heavenly.....who needs "OUT" ??????
I’d still like to know who stole my spring……if you’re the one would you pretty please send it back to me????? Thursday Hugs, Sammy
Practically all the leaves are sucked up by "THE MACHINE".....a few strays....but after a breezy Saturday, there will be another load of them down I bet! Yippeeee!
Sometimes I’m not so sure my parents really appreciate my “help” ! For instance yesterday……….my parents were out doing the first spring clean-up/mow/trim thing and I decided to skip one of my many planned naps of the day to help.
I decided it would be great since I’m so much closer to the ground than they are and can SEE stuff down here better if I did a walk-through and pointed out all the bare spots in our struggling lawn. I figured Dad would want to know where I would appreciate some nice soft green GRASS growing instead of a dirt spot or mud puddle. You’d think he’d appreciate that – right? Instead of thanking me – my parents both pretty much ignored me. I even stayed on the front porch out of their way while Mom mowed and Dad did all that other noisy stuff with that blowing thing and the trimming thing…..usually I’m INSIDE when they do that – today I was being “companionable” and helpful.
Daddy’s big joke is that he and Mom are “the landscaping team of Kimmell & Kimmell”……..well I just thought it would be nice if we changed that to “Kimmell, Kimmell & Kimmell” with my help spotting the bare places in the lawn. Do I have to tell you that it’s the last time I’m going to offer my help? From now on, I’m going to be INSIDE in a window watching them groan, moan, and sweat while I enjoy a nice leisurely and infinately more comfortable few hours.
If they want a nice lawn they can crawl around on the ground and find those bare spots without me! So there! No I’m not really mad…….I’m just being silly………as usual……..but they really should have paid attention to me as I pointed those spots out.

Ahhhhh……Sunday. My parents read the Sunday paper and I sleep. Why read the paper anyway? Now if you want me to involve myself with the newspaper – give me a chunk of it to add to my tissue pile !
Sure – I’ll read it….but I have to read it MY way….from the inside out. HAHA …..
Another Sunday rolls around and I get a FRESH supply of newspaper to play with!
But really – all I want to do on a lazy Sunday is BE lazy. At my age, I’ve managed to perfect the fine art of “lazy” so why mess with a good thing??? Speaking of LAZY, my Dad’s still sound asleep in bed. Mom and I have been up for a while now but I’m thinking MAYBE, just MAYBE I should go hop up on the bed and come up real close and give him a nice, loud
Or would that be crossing the line of “acceptable behavior?????? I’ll let you know how my plan turns out.

Hi Peeps…….well, as I told you yesterday, I’m on a mission for the Feline Bureau of Investigation but I’ll be returning today some time….hopefully in time to greet Mom when she pops in the front door after her trip.
I’m not supposed to say anything of course about the adventure Kozmo and I are involved in, but I decided it wouldn’t be telling anything TOP SECRET to show you a picture of what I was riding on/in yesterday as I set out on my mission to help Kozmo!
Talk about traveling in style huh???
Yep – I was really “roughing it” huh!
OK – I’ve said enough – besides, I’m getting a top secret text from Kozmo right now so I’ve got to sign off……………….tomorrow Kozmo and I will BOTH be blogging about our journeys and the BIG MISSION. You’ll need to visit both of our blogs to get the full story and I promise it will keep you on the edge of your seat!!!
Agent Sammy, 00.8 signing off until tomorrow……
Happy President's Day!
It’s another holiday here in the US of A. President’s Day. Just another excuse for the mail service not to deliver mail. Just another excuse for the stores to have ridiculous sales and cause traffic jams at every Mall.
Humbug. However, I must say, I look rather splendid behind the podium don’t you think? Gives me an idea…….since people are having a tough time deciding on who to vote for in the next election – what about:
SAMMY KIMMELL FOR PRESIDENT?????
Oh – wait a minute – that means that I actually have to manage the government???? NEVER MIND.
Anyway, those of you who get to celebrate President’s Day by not having to work…….enjoy!
Sammy (just plain old regular Sammy the Cat)
