Saturday Sunshine and Shenanigans

After forty days and forty nights of rain the sun finally decided to come out of hiding.

It even did it on a day when Mom doesn’t have to go to that office place.

We told her right away what we wanted…

OUTSIDE!!!

We were both so amazed to be outside again that we didn’t know what to do.

Oh the aromas…………

P1040471

Mom, don’t look now but someone is not in the yard……..

Freedom……….glorious freedom………..now, where does Mom have that catnip???

P1040478

But Mom……….I was just looking for catnip and I was even going to get some for Hemingway.

Copy of P1040158Mom, you don’t really believe he was going to share, do you???

 

Memorial Day

god bless troops

Mom said we should take time from our busy day of playing, eating and sleeping so we could say thanks to all the humans and fur people who have given so much so we could be free.

We are very grateful kitties for all that we have.  We know that some kitties don’t have freedom and some humans are scared every day of their lives.

We may not understand what it is to serve in the military, but Mom tells us that some humans and fur people have died serving our country.  Because they made such a big sacrifice, we live in a free country.

Thank you for the freedom to enjoy catnip every day.

Shakespeare!  Mom said to keep this serious.

I am serious!

Our Thoughts About Golf

 

The Boys

Mom told us that her choir director is retiring.  What is that?  We know what tired means ‘cuz we’re always tired during the day while Mom is at that work place.  Does being retired mean super duper tired?

Mom also told us that he really, really, really likes golf.  That sounds like how much we really like catnip!  So we don’t really understand why humans play golf.  We understand going out on a nice day and playing in the grass and chasing birds and butterflies.  Hey, is that why you hit that little white ball?  Is it so you can go chase it?  Can’t you find some other human to throw it for you?  Wouldn’t that be just as much fun?

We’ve seen some golf courses on the internet.  (Mom has shown us how to search for things on the ‘puter.)  So we see the green grass and then we see puddles of water.  Why do you have water out there on the golf course?  Is it because you get thirsty from chasing that little ball around?  Or do your hands get dirty and you have to stop and wash them?  Or maybe the little ball gets dirty.  We just don’t understand.

Then we see these “sandboxes” out on the golf course.  Why do you have litter boxes scattered around on golf courses?  Do kitties play golf so they need them handy?  Will someone teach us golf so we can play in the puddles and “sandboxes”?  There’s just so much to understand about what you humans are doing and you really should try explaining it to us.  Like why do you have birdies and eagles in golf?  Don’t they get in the way??  Can we come out and chase them?

Well, we know Mom is going to miss her choir director, but we’ve noticed that in spite of the years and years of practice, he still can’t get her to sing all the right notes!  Maybe he should stick to golf.  MOL!!!

It’s Just Us……….

Mom’s not adjusting to this working stuff.  She leaves us alone all day but she turns off the computer.  We can’t reach the button so we can’t talk to all of our friends.  We told her she better shape up!!!

Not only do we not get to go outside and play every day, but now we can’t go outside at all for two or three days.  Seems Pam’s brother put down some stuff to help make the grass grow.

We’re not sure why he did that ‘cuz he’s always complaining when he has to mow the grass.

It’s a human thing.

So, here we are gazing out the window:

And here we are showing Mom what we think about not being able to go outside!

We also found out that it was four years ago that we started blogging.  We were just young pups then.

I’m not a pup and never was!

Relax…..it’s one of those humanisms again.

Anyway, Mom thought it would be fun to share something from when Shakespeare was little and didn’t know much.

Hey!!!!

Cinco de Mayo

Hemingway, what is Mom talking about?  I’m trying to figure out another one of those “human” things.   She said something about mayo in the sink.  I went and looked and I didn’t see anything.  Am I missing out on something?  Do you know what she’s talking about?

Shakespeare, you know you’re not supposed to be up on the counter.  I’m going to tell Mom that you’re snooping again.

Well, I’m just trying to figure out what all the excitement is about.  I even heard them talking about it on the news this morning when Mom was trying to wake up.

I didn’t hear anything about it but I was busy staring at the dirt again.  I love to do that.  Maybe I can become the world’s best “dirt starer” and make lots of money for treats and toys.

Hemingway, you are so strange.  How can I find out about  mayo in the sink?

We could Google it.  Mom showed me how to do that.

Hey, I never thought about that!

I can’t see when you have your big tail in the way, Shakespeare!  Hey…………is this what you were hearing?  Is it Cinco de Mayo?

Maybe.  I heard “mayo” and that made me think of sandwiches and you know I love bread.  I figured Mom had some sandwiches in the sink or something.  If there isn’t any bread involved then I’ll let the humans deal with the “mayo”.

Well, I’m not too sure what it’s all about but I don’t think they mean there’s mayo in the sink.  We’ll have to ask Mom about it when she gets home from work.  I’m going to go take a nap now.  Leave the computer alone!
