Mom said today is Halloween.
She told us the little humans go out dressed as all sorts of things….
Then they go to houses and say, “Trick or treat” and the grown-up humans give them candy.
If we dress up and say, “Trick or Treat, can we get catnip treats????
HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYONE!!!
Shakespeare…..I think I found the secret door where we can order our own treats!
What do you mean, I don’t know the password??? Why do I need a stinking password???
From the Mom: The boys let me take over their blog today so I could talk about something serious.
When we turn the water faucet on, the water comes streaming out. We think it will never end as it splashes over our hands. Then one day we turn on the faucet and one tiny drip comes out and then nothing. What happened? Did we do something different?
I just lost a dear friend. He died alone at home and wasn’t found right away. How long was he there by himself? How did he die? Did he know he would not be seeing his friends again? Why did the water that was his life suddenly stop flowing?
I have many questions and very few answers. What were his final thoughts? Did he know he was dying alone? Were the angels there to help him? I have a strong feeling that they were.
He was a nice man and a wonderful friend. He loved helping others. His gruff demeanor could scare people off at times, but it was all an act. He had a heart that reached out to those who were in need. He had a great laugh that he didn’t always share with everyone, but those of us who heard it loved it.
Now I wonder if I was good enough at showing him how much value he had. Did he know he was a special person to many friends? Did he know he was loved? He wasn’t one to talk about feelings or show much emotion, but those are usually the ones with hearts as big as all outdoors.
Our time on earth is brief. We don’t fully understand the impact we may have on others. That’s why we need to respect those around us. We need to make our fellow humans feel they are worthy. We may not be able to like everyone, but I do feel that we can love them through God.
Tell your friends you love them. Hug your family members. Don’t forget the fur people in your lives. That love is what keeps the water flowing. When it stops and there is no water flowing, we are alone.
This column is dedicated to Dave Webb. I pray the angels are dancing with you as you meet up with other family members and friends. You were special to me and your friendship meant a lot. You will be missed by those of us left behind.
Over the weekend we were sitting outside discussing fall. Well, I was discussing it and Shakespeare was just looking around!
Want to know why I love fall?
I guess I’m supposed to say yes now.
Just look at me and the leaves. See how the leaves are trying to copy my beautiful fur. I have FALL FUR!
Well, I have NIGHT FUR then and that’s even better ‘cuz nights happen all year long.
Mom says we can’t ignore our friends and fans any longer. We have to sit down and write to everyone.
If we do that, will Mom give us treats?
Shakespeare, you know that you get treats all the time!
So what should we talk about? WAIT………….I know!!! Mom’s no longer a tent!!!
People…..do you see what I have to put up with??? Mom is no longer a temp! She was never a tent!
Fine! So what’s a temp?
It means that Mom is now working for the company and no longer working for the agency
So? She still leaves the house every day and leaves us alone.
But now she has benefits from the company.
She gets treats?
Well, she did tell me that there are lots of food parties there. However, the benefits she’s talking about include vacation time so she can play with us and medical and dental insurance and stuff like that.
I don’t like going tot he doctor’s house. I would need lots and lots and lots of assurance.
No. Insurance. It helps pay the bills.
Does she have insurance on us?
No. She said she’s counting on us being healthy.
Well, I can’t be healthy without treats!
Readers…………do I really have to put up with this????
We finished with the puter. Now where are our treats?
