Ramblings

 Hello, furriends!

Ernie, Scooby, Mackerull, Dai$y and all the rest of the blogging family, hope you're doing okay. I don't think we know anybody on here who's going through summer right now as we suffer through the winter. It's funny how that goes. Woohoo switcheroo - after winter, we trade places. I can't wait!

Nothing new going on, really, except out of a clear blue sky, Bridget is camera-shy. She says she had an itch, but she held this pose fur-evvvver. Lately she's been turning away from the camera. We have no clue what's up with that. We'll just wait it out. Next, it'll be something else.

Me?

Oh, I'm not camera shy in the least. The housekeeper always knows how to take the perfect photo of me. Like here.

Ladycats...no swooning allowed! I don't have any smelling salts!

Happy Monday, furry folks!

Just want to share something I've noticed. 

Bridget looks good at any angle. I started to turn this one photo around and upside down and she looks good no matter what....It's hard to tell which is the original photo. 

Can you tell? Answer at the bottom of the post ~ no peeking!


Another shot:

And, finally, Photo #4:


It's hard to tell, isn't it?

It's number three!!! If you guessed it, congratulations!

Enjoy the week ahead and stay nice and warm and safe. xoxoxo

A Bouquet for Us All

Hi, furriends!

I can't say I'm a flower person and rarely, if ever, do I get a bouquet. I did recently and I love it!


The housekeeper bought it for us and there's a rose for each of us. As you can see here, I picked mine right quick - especially after I smelt it, ha! It's packed with nip!

The other two went to the sweet ladycats in my life. Bridget loves hers!


Penny got the other one. She wasn't too sure about it. Maybe, like me, she wasn't used to getting flowers. 


Anyway, my girls are happy and I got some points for being thoughtful!

Have a good week!

The Old Year Flew - It's 2022!!

Hi, furriends!

I looked around and so far, the new year looks just like the old one. Of course, we know it won't be like the old one. At least I hope not. If things get any crazier, I think I'm going to have to propose that we cats take over the world and set things to rights!

Okay...daydream over. 

We had a good holiday. I hope you all did, too. We slept more than usual. I think I only had my eyes open when necessary, but it was all restful, pretty with lights on the tree and the housekeeper out of our hair..(just kidding). She's finished with her seasonal work and now home with us, dispensing treats, cuddles and an awful lot of cooing and making kissing noises..I think she missed us.


Housekeeper: Yes, I did miss you terribly. I'm happy to be home now after working to get ready for the holidays at LLBean, right up until Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. I had to work, you know, because some of our friends are customers and I wanted to make sure their orders got to them without a hitch.

Tom: Does the company have a sleigh?

Housekeeper: No, just reindeer. Their names are USPS and FedEx.

Tom: Oh... zzzzz...



Happy New Year to all you furries and your moms and dads, too! 💕

Christmas is Coming!

Hi, furriends!

How did Christmas get here so fast?

One minute it's turkey, and the next minute it's the Christmas goose. Well, not really. We don't cook goose around here unless you count when the housekeeper yells, "Tom, your goose is cooked if you don't get away from..., or if you don't stop carrying on..(or whatever.)" I guess it means I'm in trouble if I keep doing what I'm doing. A silly expression if you ask me.

It wasn't that long ago that Bridget was playing with a pretty snowflake hanging on the window..


Now there are all sorts of things hanging on our big tree set up in the living room. Everything got thrown on it but the kitchen sink! 




Here's a favorite cat toy we got last year. Anyone for a nip?


It sure looks full-size, doesn't it? It's actually only about two and a half inches tall!

After the tree was put up, Bridget suddenly got frisky and wanted to play.  Me, I just take things in stride..

One of our many nutcrackers sits under the tree, wide-eyed as usual. We have the frog prince nutcracker who's really cool, too! He'll be along later...

Hope your days leading up to Christmas are extra-special ones. We'll be having more days with the housekeeper since she won't be traveling the roads in the early morning hours like she's been doing. 

It's funny when she gets ready to head out the door. She says, "Are you ready for my apology treats?"
Of course, we always are ready for treats. These are called apology since she feels guilty for leaving us.

Have a very Merry Christmas, you beautiful and special furriends! We love you and hope the happiness of the holidays carry you through all of next year. (which can stop right where it is..we're not quite ready for it yet!!!)

Purrs and hugs,

~Tom, Bridget, Penny & the housekeeper Julie xoxoxo

Sharing Our Selfies

Everybody seems to be doing selfies lately and a good looking bunch of friends you are!

For me, a selfie means posing which I'm good at unless I'm not. Here I'm in all my fluffy handsomeness but you can see my right eye is squinting. That's the bad one that I get drops in which I hate, and I try to get out of that torture every way I can and then I finally give in.


 Paws down, Bridget takes the best selfies without even trying. 


And finally, Penny with a selfie that shows off all her charms.



We have a lot of wreaths around our house. The one behind her isn't a Christmas one, but we're slowly getting into the spirit!

Have a happy week!

When Nothing Goes Right

 Let's see now..

Time to plug in the lights, but what happened to the plug?

Housekeeper: It slipped down behind the tree, Tom

Oh, hell's bells. I guess I...! have to be the one to try to reach it.

Housekeeper: I can't. I have my hands full with ornaments.

Okay, then. I'm goin' in!!

Housekeeper: You're such a big help, Tom!

*%^$#!!!
