Hearing what was going down with our moms seeing Ethel’s terrifying, bare-all pictures for Arnold on the computer, and knowing Carol was frozen in fear on LOUD Mom’s lap unable to react, I used my street smarts to think fast and create a diversion.
How, you ask? I made a running leap, pounced on Ethel, and rolled her around a few times to get her good and mad! Fur flew everywhere and Ethel wailed as though I was killing her, causing all three of our humans to come running. Continue reading →
I have trouble to report. Last night LOUD Mom got the computer out to work on a chapter she’s writing for an archaeology book. When she went to turn it on, she noticed the computer was only in sleep mode. As she typed in the password, I ran to the desk and lunged for the keyboard. Maybe I could shut the computer off before she woke it up!
But it didn’t work. She caught me and put me in her lap, then proceeded typing. Up came the Skype window in all its glory. LOUD Mom yelled to Little Mom and asked her if she’d been using Skype earlier and could she close the program? Waiting with bated breath, I hoped LOUD Mom would just close the window without looking too closely. But of course not.
Thank you so much to Spence’s Girl for nominating me for The Versatile Blogger Award! I am so very honored. I have an Awards page where I usually post my awards, but with a little spare time on my paws, I thought I’d give this award its own post.
In order to accept this award, I must give seven facts about myself. Seven?! I asked my neighbor Baby Girl for input – she’s so smart – and she told me that if I meditated daily like her guru Gwyneth Paltrow, I would be Continue reading →
After a surprisingly brief discussion on the sofa, while also knitting and watching a true-crime HBO documentary, the Joint Chiefs made a decision. Citing the tendency of the troops to spill out of their basket and clog up the entry way, Little Mom suggested moving them to a more “out of the way” location. Out of the way?! Frankly, I find such callous disregard for my soldiers’ contributions offensive!
Then, LOUD Mom had the audacity to suggest they sort through my troops and GET RID OF the ones I don’t use!!! Continue reading →
My friend and trusted adviser, Deb, highlighted my blog in her most recent Blog Share. I’m so honored by her thoughtfully written post that I wanted to share it here with you while I have a chance – before Sherman, Mr. “I don’t get the point of blogging,” returns and boots me off the computer AGAIN. [Have you noticed he doesn’t even disguise his posts as Wordless Wednesdays anymore? I’m concerned he’s orchestrating a de facto overthrow of MY blog!]
Thank you, Deb, for your kind words and for all of your sage advice!
It’s lucky number 13 in my Blog Share series. I’d like you to meet Carol, who posts at creekviewcarol.com
Carol is a cat, and if you click on her homepage you will be able to see her picture, as well as the hilarious cast of players who inhabit Carol’s home. Carol’s About page is one of those About pages that I mentioned in the predecessor to this post. Clear, honest and to the point. It provides an excellent introduction to Carol’s home life and speaks volumes to what she has to endure.
Most of the posts come from Carol, but since I began following the blog, many of Carol’s brothers and sisters have started posting as well, which usually ticks Carol off. I completely understand how having one’s blog usurped by family members could be quite irritating.
The personalities of Carol’s family members really do deserve a reality TV show…
