Just Another Rainy Friday


Rain Makes Things Green

No this is NOT my yard.....IF ONLY!!!!!

No this is NOT my yard…..IF ONLY!!!!!

It has rained from first thing this morning until now and will continue into the night but man oh man has it made Spring POP around here.   The cooler temps came with the rain but that sure didn’t stop Spring from springing.   The pollen is flying around so the rain has put THAT under control, and the only BAD thing is I haven’t been able to go out and munch on the grass because – well – I don’t like to get too wet!!!!    Yes I’m a wienie – so what?    Not many cats enjoy WET………..well maybe some do:

CATINRAINCOATAt least this guy is prepared!

BATH2This guy is just plain nuts!

No I’m more the “keep me nice and dry pretty please” kind of guy and if I was getting too wet I’d definitely be like this guy:



Anyway, Mom planted a bunch of stuff earlier this week and if we could just get a bit of time without rain, I’d share some photos of everything……….so maybe by this weekend some time we’ll get Mr. Flashy Box out there and take some photos.

There was some cleaning activity around here today though so we did have the MONSTER MASH……we did have Mr. Vacuumator come out of his closet house and trip the light fantastic all over the house – Mr. and Mrs. Broomhilda did the dusting and heavy work and Mom and Dad snoopervised.

Mom says they scare the dirt and dust away.   HAHAHA…..actually I have to tell you that when my Mom was growing up her family had an English Bulldog for a family pet.  His name was Sir Reginald but they called him Reggie.   He was white with a brown “saddle” on his back and he was 80 lbs. of muscle.   My Mom used to TRY and take him for a walk but it was more like he took her for a walk.   She was no match for him and he knew it.   Anyway, he was one of the SWEETEST dogs they ever had so I’m sure if I could get close enough to have a conversation with Mr. and Mrs. Broomhilda (eeeek) I’d love them too but frankly……I’m just a TEEEEEENY WEEEEEEENY bit afraid of them!

So, that’s my Friday report.   Slightly boring but nonetheless it’s from ME so I know you’ve loved every word of it…………………..Right?   RIGHT?  RIGHT?


Happy Friday!!!!  Sammy


Yippeeee It’s Raining!

Sam's Front Yard

Maybe my front yard will look like this again since we're finally getting some RAIN??

Wheeee!  It’s finally raining here.  It’s been weeks since we even had a drop and this photo of my front yard – well – it was taken before the drought when things looked nice and green.  Right now this view is BROWN; brown grass, leaves on the trees brown (or already falling off), and it’s NOT a pretty sight.   I usually enjoy lying in the shade under a tree in the soft green grass.  Lately I feel like a pig rolling around in the dirt when I’m in the yard!  NOT A PRETTY SIGHT…………

I will be asking Mom to take me out on the front porch in a little bit – probably when I get my blog finished…..because I do enjoy standing in the rain if it’s not raining hard.  AND, I’m sure there will be some nice fresh smells out there too………so picture me sitting on the wet sidewalk, my pink nose up in the air, taking in the scent of wet grass and trees……and probably some other things like whatever the deer “left behind” when they passed through last night – and maybe a groundhog or two…..and probably some unauthorized visitors like neighborhood cats!   That doesn’t mean my “bud” Stevie though – she’s allowed (if she behaves herself of course!).

The weather guy said this rain will move through this morning, then maybe more later.  The stuff later might bring thunder and lightning – which means of course I’ll be hiding in my hidey-hole in the basement.  But this rain we’re getting now – Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh – My kind of rain!  Quiet and fresh……Nice!
