The Great Tumbleweed Migration of 2010

Today was the start of the Great Tumbleweed Migration of 2010. Sadly the tumbleweeds ran into the obstacle of our home. Mom took these pictures from our front porch:

You can see that our grill and swing are almost covered when Mom started taking the pictures.

Then the tumbleweeds really started piling up.

And then the grill and swing were almost completely covered! This happened in the time it took Mom to take 6 pictures!

The sound in this video is the wind:

The wind blew so hard this morning that one of the tumbleweeds shattered the window in our bedroom. Now we have a big piece of plywood over the window and the bed is in the middle of the room instead of against the wall. It is after 9:00 p.m. now and the wind is still blowing very hard. Mom says we will have new glass put in the window when the wind stops blowing. I hope she is telling the truth because I cannot see outside now when I sit on the bed.

Even though Mom helped moving the tumbleweeds away from the house my Daddy hurt himself moving them. They left the ones that landed against the back fence and on our back porch because they were blowing in faster than Mom and my Daddy could move them out.

Sushi and Zeke do not like going out in this wind but they have to (hahahahaha). I know it is not nice to laugh at them but now is when I am glad I have a litter box!

I hope you are not having to deal with wind like this. I hope those of you who had a lot of snow are doing OK and that the power is back on for those who lost it. And I hope those of you who had a lot of rain in California did not get flooded out. I hope that our new year does not have this kind of weather!

Have a Wonderful Christmas!

I hope you enjoy this video I found:

Mom and my Daddy join Zeke and Sushi and me in wishing everyone a very

Merry and Blessed Christmas!

Kibble Trouble

My woofie Zeke does not really like kibbles. If he never had to eat another kibble in his life he would be very happy. Mom says he has to eat some anyway because he needs them to keep his teeth at least a little bit clean.

So even though they get stinky goodness in the morning Zeke and Sushi can nibble a kibble any time they want because there are always kibbles in a special bowl on the floor near the water dish. Zeke says that if he has to eat kibbles they should be on the floor instead of in a dish ~ to make it easy for him to get to them (he does not always get his way). This is what usually happens when he gets hungry enough for his kibbles:

Thanksgiving Thursday 13!

Today I am thankful for very many things!
  1. My Grandma was able to come visit for 3 weeks. Mom had a lot of fun with her and I think Grandma enjoyed being here. I even sat 2 feet away from Grandma a couple of times. (OK it was just the day before she left and I never let her get close enough to touch me. But I didn't hide for the whole 3 weeks.)
  2. Grandma made it home to New Yuck safely.
  3. Mom and my Daddy will both be home all day.
  4. Mom turned on the hot air blowy things so I can be warm. She says she will probably have to put on a t-shirt in place of her sweater so she does not melt but I like the heat.
  5. This morning Zeke let me sit by the heat without barking at me.
  6. Sushi just gave me a woofie smooch without sliming me.
  7. I think I will have real turkey for lunch.
  8. If I do not have turkey for lunch at least I had White Meat Chicken Florentine in a Delicate Sauce with Garden Greens for breakfast.
  9. My Daddy lets me go outside sometimes and he always lets me back in again.
  10. The back yard is fenced to keep out the riff raff who live in our park but it does not keep out the doves who tease me to play with them.
  11. I get double cheek scritchies whenever I want them.
  12. I can take naps with my Daddy.
  13. My family all loves each other very much.

I hope you all have a very

Happy Thanksgiving!

My First Video Post

OK I do not know if this will work but I will post it anyway. My Daddy took this video of me eating grass in our back yard. It is very exciting because it is of me!

Tomorrow the university where Mom works is closed in the morning so everyone can go to the fair. She thinks that is funny. I think she should spend that time petting me.

Whew (again)!

My Daddy was stung on his foot by a scorpion that was trying to take a shower with him a few days ago. He is very allergic to bee stings so Mom and I were really concerned for him but he did not have any bad reaction to it except the pain of the sting.

That was the 4th scorpion we have found in our house this summer. Mom stepped on one early in the summer. It did not sting her. Instead she got the fly swatter and smushed it flat and threw it in the trash can.

I spent a lot of time staring at one but it did not want to play with me. And no one grabbed the flashy box to take pictures of any of them.

Mom will be very happy when the weather cools off enough that the scorpions go away again until next summer.

Labor Day 2010

This is how I would have spent my day if Mom had let me go outside. Instead all I could do was dream about being outside.

Do you see the feather?

I did get to eat one of my favorites today though ~ Fancy Feast® Elegant Medleys White Meat Chicken and Cheddar Cheese SoufflĂ© with Garden Greens. Yummmmmmm!

And now I ask you ~ does Sushi know how to relax or what?! My Daddy set up the hammock on our back porch and Sushi took it right over.

I am pretty sure that is a grin on her face.

She had just a little bit of trouble getting out again but she made it eventually. (She had a little help from my Daddy.)

We hope you had a relaxing Labor Day! Zeke and Sushi and I spent most of it being lazy. Mom wants to know how that is different from any other day for us so I told her the difference was that she was home relaxing with us!

Independence Day 2010

Declaration of Independence

Philadelphia July 4, 1776

The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America.

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.

We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness -- That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive to these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shown that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient Sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The History of the present King of Great- Britain is a History of repeated Injuries and Usurpations, all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid World.

HE has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public Good.

HE has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing Importance, unless suspended in their Operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

HE has refused to pass other Laws for the Accommodation of large Districts of People, unless those People would relinquish the Right of Representation in the Legislature, a Right inestimable to them and formidable to Tyrants only.

HE has called together Legislative Bodies at Places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the Depository of their public Records, for the sole Purpose of fatiguing them into Compliance with his Measures.

HE has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly Firmness his Invasions on the Rights of the People.

HE has refused for a long Time, after such Dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the meantime exposed to all the Dangers of Invasion from without, and the Convulsions within.

HE has endeavored to prevent the Population of these States; for that Purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their Migration hither, and raising the Conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

HE has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

HE has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the Tenure of their Offices, and the Amount and Payment of their Salaries.

HE has erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harass our People, and eat out their Substance.

HE has kept among us, in Times of Peace, Standing Armies without the consent of our Legislature.

HE has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to Civil Power.

HE has combined with others to subject us to a Jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our Laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

FOR quartering large Bodies of Armed Troops among us:

FOR protecting them, by mock Trial, from Punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

FOR cutting off our Trade with all Parts of the World:

FOR imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

FOR depriving us in many Cases, of the Benefits of Trial by Jury:

FOR transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended Offences:

FOR abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring Province, establishing therein an arbitrary Government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an Example and fit Instrument for introducing the same absolute Rule into these Colonies:

FOR taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

FOR suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with Power to legislate for us in all Cases whatsoever.

HE has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

HE has plundered our Seas, ravaged our Coasts, burned our Towns, and destroyed the Lives of our People.

HE is, at this Time, transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the Works of Death, Desolation, and Tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and Perfidy, scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous Ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized Nation.

HE has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the Executioners of their Friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

HE has excited domestic Insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the Inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known Rule of Warfare, is undistinguished Destruction of all Ages, Sexes and Conditions.

IN every stage of these Oppressions we have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble Terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated Injury. A Prince, whose Character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the Ruler of a free People.

NOR have we been wanting in Attentions to our British Brethren. We have warned them from Time to Time of attempts by their Legislature to extend an unwarrantable Jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the Circumstances of our Emigration and Settlement here. We have appealed to their native Justice and Magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the Ties of our common Kindred to disavow these Usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our Connections and Correspondence. They too have been deaf to the Voice of Justice and Consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the Necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of Mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace, Friends.

WE, therefore, the Representatives of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World for the Rectitude of our Intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly Publish and Declare, that these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be, FREE AND INDEPENDENT STATES; that they are absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political Connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as FREE AND INDEPENDENT STATES, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which INDEPENDENT STATES may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

YUCK!!!

Well! Today just stunk! I planned to talk about hummingbirds and owls and I even had pictures almost ready to go but instead ~ this morning the prisoner transport unit (PTU) suddenly appeared.

You probably have already guessed what happened and do not need the gory details but I will tell you anyway. After Mom climbed up on the step ladder and took down the PTU she stuffed me into it and locked the door and threw away the key shut the door so I could not get out. Then Zeke and Sushi both had their leashes attached to their collars. Then the traitor my Daddy put the PTU in Mom's car. Then Sushi jumped in the car all excited about going for a ride. Then Mom went back into the house and picked up Zeke and made him get in the car. Then Mom asked my Daddy if he was going and he said no.

Then Mom drove us to the VET. I am glad the PTU has a place for the seat belt to hook in or it would probably have been on the floor from all my demands to be taken home (no Mom I was not bawling like a baby ~ they were demands).

So the bad news is that I had to get stuck with that stupid needle. The good news is that I am beautiful and healthy and beautiful and my teeth are fine and I do not have to go back again for another whole year and I am beautiful. You may have figured out that the VET had a lot to say about how beautiful I am.

Zeke and Sushi got stuck with needles too but they both are healthy. Zeke's heart has improved ~ the VET said there is no sign of his murmur. They both should have their teeth cleaned but Zeke is old enough that the VET said he does not have to have it done. This is the first time Sushi needs it which is very good because she is already 8 years old. She has to go in next week and she should come home the same day. Oh and the VET thinks Zeke and Sushi are cute and sweet.

So I decided to skip the hummingbirds today and tell you all how cruel Mom was. I have not let her touch me since I came out of the PTU. At least she had to make 2 trips into town because of us ~ it was too hot for us to be in the car so she was not able to go grocery shopping until after she brought us home. It is a good thing for her that she remembered to pick up more stinky goodness on her second trip.

Finding Happiness in the Sadness

Dad holding a photo of Mom and him while they were dating.
This Buick Roadmaster carried 17 people to church once!
All of these photos were taken by Dad's granddaughter, Kate Saler

Mom and Dad on one of his good days not long before the end.

Dad and Mom holding hands a few days before he passed. They had been married almost 57 years.

Right up to the last day Dad loved to read his Bible.

John 14:1-6

My Dad was promoted to Heaven a week ago today. His heart gave out after serving him well for 78 years. He had lost a lot of weight over the past 18 months ~ he weighed just 130 pounds. He was on oxygen at home and he could not speak easily because of fluid on his lungs. He never smoked but his docs think he might have had lung cancer. They didn't do a biopsy or drain the fluid because of his frail condition.

Dad was at peace about his death ~ he knew the Lord was waiting for him with open arms. Two nights before he passed I spoke with Mom and had to apologize for snapping at her (I had a tension headache, nausea and a bad backache). About 10 minutes later Mom called back, said Dad wanted to pray with me and put me on speaker. It was beautiful listening to my Dad, who loved me so much, pray with complete assurance that even with his halting speech his prayer would be heard and answered. I cried.

Most of the funeral arrangements had already been made. Some of Dad's pastor friends were at his house recently ~ discussing the service and praying with him. They were able to have a short communion service with Dad and Mom, which everyone appreciated.

I'm very glad that I was able to attend the last Sunday morning service (in July '09) that Dad was able to lead. He had been my pastor since I was 7 or 8 years old and I still compare every preacher I hear to Dad.

There are many reasons I'm blessed to have had this man as my Dad. I'm crying again now but I know he doesn't want us to be sad. Dad was gone before I made it to his home again last Friday but I know he'll be waiting for us with open arms when we go Home.

Getting to New Yuck

Mom has purchased bus tickets to go see Grandpa and Grandma later this week. It is a 2-day trip by bus but the green papers required are within our means. Mom says it is a 2-day trip by plane anyway unless she wants to max out her plastic. Since she wants to be able to go back again when she needs to she thinks this is the best way.

Zoolatry is temporarily closed because of family reasons. Please prrrrrrrrrr and wag your tails and purray for Maggy and Zoey and Ann too.

Thursday, March 25, 2010

Phooey!

Well! We are very disappointed tonight. The Syracuse Orange did not play very well and they lost to Butler. (What Mom? Oh OK if you insist.) Mom says I have to tell the whole truth and say that Butler played very well and they deserved to win. We will have to see who wins the other games before we decide who to cheer for during the rest of the tournament.

UPDATE: Grandpa was not carried into his house. He had some people who made sure he made it in OK but he was able to walk in on his own! (Mom misunderstood something Grandma told her.)

Grandpa went home from the hospital today. He did not have the fluid drained because his people VET said it would be too invasive too soon after the last time and he did not think it would do Grandpa any good. So he is home now. He needed people to carry him into the house and then some other people came to set him up with oxygen. Mom is really concerned. It will take too long if she has to drive there by herself and my Daddy will not be able to go with her. The airline ticket will cost too many green papers if she tries to go right away. Please purray that she will recognize the right door when the Lord opens it.

Thank you to everyone who is keeping us in your thoughts and purrayers.

March Madness!

So when I woke up on Saturday morning there was snow on the ground! It covered the whole back porch even though it was not very deep. By the time I talked my Daddy into taking me outside around noon the snow was all gone already. It was so muddy though that he did not let me stay outside for very long.

Then yesterday it was 84 degrees outside! Today it was cooler and tonight it might snow again. I am very confused. It is a good thing I am not a weathercat.

I would appreciate it if you would purray and prrrrrrrrr and wag your tails really hard for my Grandpa. He is having a very hard time breathing and is in the VA hospital again. He will have fluid drained from around his lung tomorrow but he said he does not know how many more times he will be able to let them do it. Mom is waiting for a phone call to know if she should go see him soon. It is a 3-day drive or a very expensive half-day plane ride.

March Madness in the weather and in health problems and in ~ basketball! The Syracuse University Orange have made it to the Sweet 16 (whatever that means). Well OK it means Mom and Grandma and Grandpa are very happy. And it is true that when Mom is happy we are all happier so that is a good thing. Now we hope the Orange are able to play really well against Butler on Thursday. If you are cheering for another team I hope they play really well too.

And no I do not have any pictures to post. (It is all Mom's fault of course.) Maybe next post.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Click to Mix and Solve

There are no pictures of me wearing green so I decided to give you a puzzle as my St. Patrick's Day greeting. Click on the puzzle to go to Jigzone.com and enjoy!

My Daddy put a corned beef in the crock pot this morning and he will add potatoes and cabbage this afternoon so they will be cooked just right for dinner tonight. I am sure a piece or two of beef will make it into the woofies' bowls but I do not have any interest in trying it. I think I might get an extra spoonful of stinky goodness though.

Mom says she will have shepherds pie and potato soup and crunchy asparagas spears with dip and mint chocolate cheesecake and green lemonade pie and lime punch and maybe even some more corned beef and cabbage at something called a Pot Luck at her day hunting place tomorrow. I think she might not need to eat dinner after that so I am glad the Pot Luck is not happening today.

The Roswell Zoo

Last week my Daddy went to the zoo here in Roswell. Here are some of the photos he took: The bison have one of the largest pens at the zoo. They really are majestic (this is a new word I just learned). I think they will look just a little bit better when they have lost all of their winter coats though. We call this guy Speedy. He did not move around very much so it was easy to take his picture. Hmmmmm ~ I wonder if peacocks taste as good as they look. This peacock scraped out a hole in the ground but I am fairly sure he did not lay any eggs in it. The temperature has been in the 70s already here ~ it looks like he just wanted a cool place to rest. The sun makes his feathers look very beautiful!. These are the feathers the peacock always wears on his head. They are very beautiful too. This is the only albino peacock my Daddy has seen at the zoo. Albino means "A person or animal lacking normal pigmentation, with the result being that the skin and hair are abnormally white or milky." (Mom helped me look up this word in the dictionary so I could tell you what it means.) I think that the white one does not like the blue one very much! It was just a little bit hard to get a good picture of this one 'cuz he kept walking away. In this pic you can see how pretty the feathers are with their fringe. My Daddy calls this picture "Drinking a Star". The sun and the water were just right!

There are not very many animals at this zoo but I will ask my Daddy to try to get pictures of some of the ones who are there. I know there are some mountain lions and some bobcats. It might be hard to get good pix of them because they like to stay in the shade. Maybe I will be able to post their photos later. There are some very beautiful big birds besides the peacocks too.

Mom is still not feeling very well. She said when she swallows it feels like someone sticks an ice pick in her ear. There is something bad going around and a lot of people here have been sick as long as she has. It has been over 3 months! I hope you are all feeling much better than she is!

I Do Not Like To Travel!

Most of the time getting into my tree next to my home is as close to travel as I really want to get. I do like to know about when other people travel though so I have decided to link to a new blog I found called Country Boy Adventures. One of the ladies who Mom knows at her day hunting place has a son who is hunting for green papers in Djibouti right now and he expects to be hunting in other countries in the future. I put a link to his blog about his travel experiences on my sidebar if you want to check it out.

Halloween ~ RIP

Our wonderful friend Halloween had to leave her family last Saturday and we will all miss her very much. We hope her family can feel the prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs and head bumps and gentle tail wags we are sending them.

I am Back (sort of)!

Mom asked me to say Thank You to everyone who sent her encouraging comments as she does not not feel very good. We all appreciated reading them and they made her feel better even though she is still coughing.

I also need to thank a couple of you for giving me these great awards:

This one is from Maggie and Zoey and Ann at Zoolatry. It was very sweet of them to think of me!

This one is from Herman and Karen Jo. They think I am a Superior Scribbler even though Mom helps me with my spelling and grammar!

The Super Scribbler award was started by The Scholastic Scribe to celebrate their two hundredth post two years ago. To read more about the award go here. Here are the rules for this award:

1. Each Superior Scribbler (SS) must pass the Award on to 5 deserving blogger friends.

2. Each SS must link the author and name of the blog from whom he/she received the award.

3. Each SS must display the award on his/her blog and link to the post which explains the award.

4. Each SS is asked to visit the post which explains the award and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List (I just made a comment - I couldn't figure out how to add to the Mr. Linky list.)

5. Each SS must post these rules on his/her blog.

Now it is very difficult to whittle down the choices to just 5 other bloggers but here they are: Army of Four, Asta, Chase, Clover and Chewy and William of Mass Destruction.

I hope it is not so long between posts next time! And I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Apologies

It has been a long time since my last post and I thought it was about time to let you know what has been going on. I am sure it will not surprise any of you to learn that it is all Mom's fault. She says she has been sick even though I told her she was not allowed to be sick. She feels well enough to go to her day hunting place (at least most of the time ~ she did come home early once) but when she gets home mostly all she does is sit on the couch like a lump or go to bed. I am glad she has learned how to be still like a kitteh but that means that she does not help me blog!

We have tried to keep up with at least reading your blogs but we have not done any commenting in about a squillion days. So I am making Mom apologize for not leaving comments. It is all her fault. I keep telling her what comments to make but she keeps ignoring me. She says she does not have enough energy to do what she knows she should.

It is true that she coughs and sneezes and whines and moans and groans a lot. (I do not! At least not that much whining I hope. ~ Mom) I guess I should try to be patient with her. After all I am a kitteh and that means I can sit here and stare at her for as long as I need to. Wait ~ maybe I should make her go to her people VET. Yes! After all she makes me go even when I do not need to so she should go when she looks like she really needs it. Maybe someone will stick her with a sharp thingy and steal her blood! Maybe she will have to take some icky tasting meds! Bwahahahahahahahaha! Ohhhh poor Mom.

So anyway we are not ignoring you. I hope Mom feels better enough soon so I can start commenting again. I hope you are all doing better than she is!!!

Whew!

I had Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys White Meat Chicken and Cheddar Cheese Souffle with Garden Greens for dinner tonight. Thank you for all your support after my previous post. Your comments were 100% in agreement with me. That means 0% thought Mom and my Daddy had a leg to stand on!

Now I have to wonder if 4 cans are enough. Mom says Friday is payday (whatever that means) and that I will be getting many more cans before the weekend is over. But ~ that is a squillion sleeps away and I am still just a little bit concerned. I will believe her for now.

At least I can sleep with my tummy full tonight!

Tuesday Tale of Woe

I think it is possible that I might waste away to shadow tonight. I think maybe Mom and my Daddy are deliberately unintentionally trying to starve me. What else can I think when I learn there is no stinky goodness in the house?! Both of them have been out and either one of them could have brought home more stinky goodness but they claim they forgot it. I think they really just forgot me. They say that one of them will pick some up tomorrow but I think that might be just a little bit too late for me.

Mom says there are plenty of kibbles in my bowl and in the storage bin. How am I supposed to be comfortable sleeping tonight with just kibbles and no stinky goodness? Hmmmmmmm ~ maybe I will not sleep. After all I must do something to remind them that I am not a happy kitteh!

Maybe Mom should keep her fingers away from me tonight!
