Instructions May Be Needed

A very strange thing happened over the weekend.  It happened briefly on Saturday but happened again almost all day on Sunday.

We had a bright light in the sky!!!

We haven’t seen that bright light in days and days and days………… Well, you get it.

Still, I knew exactly what to do!  I plopped myself down in the biggest sun puddle I could find and I flashed my sparkly green eyes at Mom to let her know that I was very happy.  Mom said that she liked how my black whiskers showed up in the photo.  However, she didn’t like my messy bib so I did get a brushing later.

Hemingway and Cookie Jar

I was busy telling the Cookie Jar Kitties that they should get in the sun puddles, but they weren’t moving.  Oh, and I also got a brushing even though my bib wasn’t messy.

Mom is actually the one who needed instructions on what to do when the sun shines.

She said she needed to take a class on how to put on sunglasses.

Of course first she had to find them!!!

It was a fun weekend.  What about yours?

Remember Us???

Long ago and far away we had a human who listened to us and wrote down what we were saying……….and/or thinking.

What do you mean?  Mom’s still here.

Yes, but she sure has gotten lazy in her old age.

Well, it’s true that she doesn’t spend as much time playing with us as we would like…….and sometimes our supper is late ‘cuz she’s stuck at that work place.

That’s it!  The work place thing.  It’s taking all of her energy!!!

Wonder if we could do anything to help.

Mom doesn’t mumble things about us getting jobs whenever she has to go buy our foodies.

I don’t want to get a job.  It’s cold outside and I don’t want to go there.  Besides, I know she wouldn’t let us drive her car.

Of course not……..we can’t even see over the dashboard and I’m not real sure which pedal is which and how long you have to hold them down.

Could we get one of those jobs where you do things at home on the computer?

She’s not going to leave the computer on for us.  She doesn’t now and I don’t see her changing her tune about that at all.

She’s singing???  I know she keeps practicing to sing.

Sigh…………

If I could figure out how to back into this box, I would be a cute model!

And if I could figure out how to sleep in this bed, I would be a good model.

Give it up Hemingway.  I make a better model in the bed.

Are you sure???????????

Wednesday……All Day

Not Me

Hey Steinbeck……….guess what!  I don’t see Mom at the puter but it’s turned on.

But I just finished eating and after I clean my face, I need to take a nap.  Still…………..we don’t often get this chance.  So, what should we talk about?

DSC_0171

I know!!!  We can talk about my pretty feet.

Nobody wants to see your stinky feet.  Maybe we could do a lesson on the art of hiding!

Me first!

I'm hiding

 

Nobody knows where I and I’ll never be found.

Goofball!  You forgot something!!  I can do better than that!

 

hemingway hides

Hemingway……..you forgot something, too!

Boys!  What are you doing?  Who said you could play with the puter?  Oh, and by the way, neither one of you should be teaching a course on hiding!  

We Have a Question…

I tried explaining to Steinbeck about the leaves changing colors this time of year.

He never told me why they do it!

Anyway, I told him it was all part of nature and there was nothing he could do about it.

Well, I’m part of nature so why can’t I change my color?

Remember people……….I have to live with him.  Anyway, Mom took a picture of a tree by us that has leaves who have decided they no longer want to be green.  Steinbeck hasn’t personally seen this tree, but he did look at the picture.

 

I figured I could change our colors, too.  Wouldn’t it be cool if I turned green in the fall and Hemingway turned red?  I was hitting buttons on the computer and suddenly this happened:

It’s kind of like putting on colored glasses, Steinbeck.  I think I still look very regal in shades of red.  You, however, look a little sickly.  I think we should stick to our own colors and not try to change like the leaves do.

But nobody has explained to me just why the leaves aren’t happy staying green.  I think green is  a pretty color.  Of course compared to GINGER, it really pales in comparison  MOL!

Sunday Selfie

Mom said since we slept through last Sunday’s Selfie, we better make sure we get one out there today.  After all this will be the last chance in August.

Why?

Look at the calendar.  Next Sunday will be in September.

I better start growing my furs.  Doesn’t it start getting cold soon.

Shhhhhhhhhhhhh.  Mom said she doesn’t want to talk about that.  Anyway, here’s our doctored-up selfie.  Mom calls it “Me and My Shadow”.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzz…….clipse

Did you hear Mom talking about some clipsie thing today?

She was talking about the eclipse.

So, what is that?  Is it a new cat food?  Is it a new catnip plant?

No.  It’s something that happened in the sky.

What?

Well, imagine you are looking out the window at a pretty butterfly.  Then all of a sudden, I walk in front of you and sit down for a bit.

You always do that!

Yes, well, that’s sort of what the moon did.  Today the moon got in front of the sun and blocked its sight so it couldn’t send out those rays of light and make it bright outside.

I thought we saw the moon at night.  What’s it doing awake during the day?  Is it still clipsing?

No.  It happened around the time Mom has her lunch.  Maybe since I mentioned lunch you might understand a little ‘cuz teaching you something about the world is next to impossible if it doesn’t involve food or treats.  At least we both did what Mom said to do today.  She told us not to look at the sun.

We didn’t!

I know…………we were both napping.

 

sleeping two

Mom…………..this is how I looked during the eclipse thing.

sleeping one

Mom………..this was me dreaming about clipsie catnip.  Obviously clipsie things are for sleeping.  I wonder if Mom fell asleep at work?????????
