Daddy’s Flying (no he’s not a bird)

Standard

It’s gonna be another hot one today….even with the heat, Dad just left for the airport to give his airplane a bath.  Yep.  Seems even airplanes have to go through that procedure at least once a year.  Better the plane than me is what I say!   I’ll probably lounge around on the front porch in the shade with Mom a time or two but I just might stay INSIDE in the cool today.  Like Mom says, it’s nice to be retired!!

Two people found me in that picture Mom and I posted in my blog yesterday – – good for you two!  Here’s a highlighted (I’m the STAR!) area of that photo so you can see where I was hiding out….

See me?  I'm pretty tiny but I'm there!

See me? I'm pretty tiny but I'm there!

I guess it’s still hard to see me but close to the center you can see me – looking to my right, white neck/chest and in the picture I look dark orange or light brownish (although I’m a RED tabby!)….got my eye on a chipmunk I bet!

This morning my girlfriend Stevie showed up for a handout.  We hadn’t seen her for three or four days but I know she has other spots she visits AND a home somewhere.  Mom gave her some fresh water and food….she munched down, drank some water, then off she went.  I wonder what it would be like to just roam around anywhere I want to…..but then again since I’m a nervous kind of guy, I prefer staying close to home with my parents.  When I was a little guy – maybe one year old – Mom let me wander down into the woods by myself….just because she wanted me to know how good I had it in my nice comfy house!  Well, it wasn’t long before I was running back to the back yard and up to the back door and crying to come inside……!!   Scaredy-cat?  Maybe….but at least I know that by sticking close to home, I won’t become some other animal’s meal as many around here have.  No sireeeeeee…….I’m happy to be a “house cat” !
