Just like cheerleaders……………… “GIMME A B”, “GIMME AN A”, “GIMME A C”, “GIMME AN O“, “GIMME AN N” ………..WHATZIT SPELL???? BACON!!!!! (roar of crowd and tossing of pompoms).
Yep – today is “B” day in the Kimmell Household………Mom’s frying up that goodness right this minute and I’m READY………………..
Mom says she’s in the mood for bacon this morning too so that probably means she’s making LOTS!
MAMA MIA !!!!!! Now you’re talking……..
But seriously, it would take us WEEKS to get through this (maybe)………..in the meantime, wanna see some of your favorite posters??? Oh sure you do……….
ALRIGHT – enough of this silliness – let the FEASTING begin!
Happy Saturday – may the bacon fairy land in your kitchen today.
HUGS, SAM THE BACONATOR!
Did I hear you say “breakfast is ready” ???
Hi Everyone! Did you think you’d entered the Twilight Zone when you visited my blog yesterday morning? Well, that was a bit of a last minute surprise – one I couldn’t prepare you for – but I had been asked to be the Judge in this very important dispute between two canines and I did my civic duty!
To all of you who came over from here to see what the courtroom action and case consisted of (which was on Misaki’s blog ALL DAY yesterday!), thanks for visiting. It was a long day but before I go further with the resumption of my usual blog, I need to announce my decision as judge on the case of Doggy v. Mollie.
Here Come Da Judge! The Honorable Samuel Kimmell
I, Judge Samuel Kimmell, Esq. am happy to announce the following conclusion to the case of Doggy v. Mollie which was held on Misaki’s blog yesterday.
The Court wishes at this time to announce that the Mediator in the case, Long Life Cats and Dogs suggested a solution which was agreed to by all parties in the matter at hand (you can read what the case was about on Misaki’s blog if you have no idea what’s going on!!). Anyway the compromise is:
- Mollie, the plaintiff, agrees to modify the rules, allowing all competitors to acquire said “Paw Token”. This would include Sir Doggy.
- Sir Doggy, the defendant, for his part in the misunderstanding, formally apologises to Mollie.
- Sir Doggy’s charge of “Criminal Intent To Gain Paw Tokens”, is reduced to a “misdemeanor”, with a Probationary Sentence, lasting the duration of the competition, whereby he accepts that he will not attempt to unlawfully obtain future “Paw Tokens”.
Again, may I thank all those who testified in court on behalf of Mollie and Doggy, all those who suggested solutions to the issue, and all those who just came and giggled quite noisily from the peanut gallery. It’s just wonderful to see the judicial system at work is it not???? Now if you’ll permit me may I declare:
Court Is Hereby Adjourned
Now, those of you who love me for the “non-Judge” that I am, might be interested to know that I did do some other things yesterday other than participate in this marathon court case! Yes indeed! And if you’d like a sample of some of those activities, here you are!
What a life I have!
See you tomorrow gang!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀 😀 😀
My very best "please, please, pretty please!!!" face...think it will work????
Actually I don’t have to do my “pretty please” face at all to get my parents to “cooperate” – they’re great at reading me and my body language and eye contact messages. Yesterday I inundated them with “don’t forget to carve a cat pumpkin for me” vibes….I only did that because usually Mom has brought home the chosen pumpkin by now from the pumpkin place (wherever THAT is!) and it’s sitting on our front porch waiting to be carved. I keep checking out the front door and it’s NOT THERE. I think they’re going out today to get it. They kind of have to go today since Halloween is tomorrow. It’s not snowing any more (we had snow and sleet all day yesterday but hardly any of it stuck….yippeeee) so they have no excuse.
For those of you who have followed the last week or so of my blog postings about Halloween and costumes, etc., you will be happy to know that my Mom decided NOT to get me one. Costume that is. Just my Halloween scarf which I can handle wearing for short periods of time. Whew! I skated through that little crisis pretty well. That face as seen in the photo above worked…..again.
I’ll be sure and have Mom take a photo of the cat pumpkin so I can share with you. I bet I’m the only cat in the whooooooooole neighborhood who gets their very own cat pumpkin to surprise the little kiddies tomorrow night when they visit!

- When it gets too hot outside I just think of THIS !!!
Happy Friday everybody! It’s been so very hot, hot, hot here lately I asked Mom to post this picture of me today just to remind everyone (including me) that summer is passing quickly and before you know it….well….need I finish that sentence?? I tried a couple of times to lie in the shade on our front porch yesterday but it was just so hot, even the SHADE was too hot! It’s also very “wet” – humid Mom calls it. Whatever you call it, it’s not all that great to be outside these days.
Last Winter Mom took this photo of me as I was following her out into the yard….I was “cheating” and instead of hopping through the deep snow (like I sometimes do!) I was walking in HER footsteps. Sneaky huh?! I actually like the snow…..maybe not quite as much now as when I was younger but I still like it.
Today is supposed to be super hot AGAIN….I will probably just stay inside today and think of cooler days ahead…..Hey – maybe I’ll ask Santa Paws to bring me a sled this year???

I love playing in dirt....Mom's not so thrilled about that though!
Oh boy, oh boy……I just love to play in dirt. Funny because I also love to be nice and clean and handsome too and spend a lot of time staying that way with Mom’s help (and my brush of course). But, one of my very favorite games to play outside involves DIRT.
Here’s how you play the game….first you find a patch of dirt where grass isn’t growing (Daddy hates that grass won’t grow in some spots….I love it)……then you dig in with your toes and scrape the dirt around a little – throw some up in the air if you can (haha) – all the time you are going in a circle around the dirt…..you keep your tail all puffed up like a raccoon – that makes Mommy laugh (also part of the game).
Then, when you’re good and dirty, you move on to the NEXT patch of dirt and do the same thing! By now, Mom is falling out of her chair laughing at you…….way cool……
Then comes the best part…..here’s how you finish the game up…..you run as fast as you can across the yard and fling yourself up on the old oak tree about three feet off the ground and HANG THERE by your claws!!!! It’s apparently VERY impressive to watch. It kind of wears me out these days since I’m getting middle aged but it’s worth it. That is until we come back inside. Mom cleans my feet off with an old towel and I’m not too crazy about THAT part.
I DO love dirt………..and hearing Mommy laugh!!
