A Funny Angel


Imagine if this angel flapped all his wings at once. First, he couldn't get off the ground, or up from wherever he was; and, second, he would probably knock himself out. You know that commercial where the guy tries to eat the chicken wing and it keeps slapping him? That's the one. It kind of reminds me of that. It also reminds me of Vinny and how he used to make fun of that stained glass angel, wondering about it. He loved the colors that would play on the church floor, though. I caught him in a patch of blue one time and he looked very strange!

I guess reminiscing is part of letting go of an old year and bringing in the new. I am grateful for new friends, the cat blogosphere, woofies I am really, really getting to like so much (wasn't always that way), and visiting. So, a very, very happy New Year to all, and thanks again (I can't thank you all enough) for all of your purrs, prayers and kind thoughts you all took the time to express!

Onward! Would you believe Mary Lou spent an hour--yes, an hour, cleaning my catbox room this morning? What a dear! She scrubbed, sprinkled talcum around (it's a linoleum floor) which made it smell yummy and then made it shine? She said a new Year was as good a time as any to give my hindquarters a fresh start, hehe!

Love,
Tom

Happy new year, Tom. We wish you an abundance of sun puddles, treats, and scritches. And an always-clean cat-box room! :-)

Oh goodness talcum powder - we will request that in future too - fancy we will have to think what else we want for the litter box room - maybe a newspaper or magazine to read and some background music (not water music we
hasten to add - haha!!), some dainty scented flowers - well that will do for a start!!

When I read your post about the angel flapping her wings all at once it brought a vision into me head - maybe wind is created from all the angels flapping their wings at the same time. That could cause a hurricane!! Happy New Year dear friend. We are so happy to have met you.
