ManCat Monday

Cat rule: Don’t bite the hand that feeds you; just bite the one that won't feed you fast enough. 

Thanks to every cat that showed up for the house trashing. Mum did comment that the house seemed messier than  usual. We also give kudos to whomever yakked on the kitch-hen counter!
 When mum got home on Sunday, we watched the rest of the Packer game. Sitting on her if necessary to get our loves and treats.
Derby giving her the evil eyes, to get more treats.

So yeah, mum played with old racy cars, some of which she amembers from way back from when they were new, like first one below. It is a Formula V with a Lynx chassis. A kittie car!

 A paw print on the front.
  Some had a lynx head on their cars too.
Now the next ones mum did not see race when they were new, they are from before she was even born.But our UK furiends and their beans will enjoy these MG's.
Now the next is a Sunbeam, another UK car, but mum was told it has a super special engine. 
 Mum was told this engine is an engine from a Spitfire airplane from the WW II era! This car was not taken out on the track, it just was in the tent for showing it off.

 Feetsball Report

The Pack - well mum didn't get home until the second half. But when she started home The Pack was behind 21 to 3. But they came back and clawed their way to the front and won 31 to 24! Woohoo,

The Bronco's  - Mr Peyton won today too. Mum didn't see any of the game.

Hi and Happy Weekend.

Mum took off sort of early to go play with OLD racy cars. She is glad she wasn't there yesterday in the cold rain. Today will be cool but a bit sunnier.

Mum will be home tonight, so guess we have to behave a bit. Nap lots and enjoy the sunshine. Mum said no house trashing while she is gone. But who listens to her anyway. So come on over and let's house trash!

Garden Thursday - Patriot Day

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Viringer and Glimmer.

Today will will honor those who lost their lives on this day 13 years ago. Mum said it was a sad and scary day. Here are pictures of a local tribute including a part of a beam from one of the towers.

Purrs to all who need comfort on this day. Purrs to those who serve and have served our country to keep us free.

Love, Virginger and Glimmer

Mini ManCat Monday

If a dog jumps into your lap it is because he is fond of you; but if a cat does the same thing it is because your lap is warmer. - A. N. Whitehead

Well mum did some outside work, but not nearly as much as last weekend! She was done by lunch time on Caturday.

The shrubs were growing way too much on our side, so mum chopped them all off! Plus she trimmed off a few other things too. It was nice, sunny and no hots or humids!

Here is the pile of stuff mum will have to haul off, but that will wait for another weekend! Mum says it has to wilt down a bit first.
Then on Sunday, the neighbor came out and trimmed some too, but they didn't pick up the leftovers, yet at least. Mum says she will run over them with the grass eater, then they will be gone.

Since it was so nice, mum got shots of me with the open window. Inside and out!
Derby just napped in mum's chair. She was elsewhere doing stuff.

Feetsball Report 

Yes it is that time of the year again. Back to our weekly feetsball report. 

The Pack - They got to start the season last Thursday and the showed they were NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME! Wasn't pretty and mum said she didn't expect them to win either!

The Broncos - played the first Sunday night game against Peyton's old team The Colts. The Bronco's won and now Mr Peyton has beaten every team in the NFL! Not bad.

Grampa Brett - still retired, but mending fences with the Green and Gold gang.

Happy weekend all. We are taking it easy this weekend, even mum! After all of her hard work last weekend, she says she won't do much this weekend. We shall see!

 Ducky will do his best to sit on mum all weekend. If she can't get up and get outside, then she won't work so hard.
Mum, I smell the chick-hen bones in here, WANT, WANT, WANT. But no, she took them out for Fred our G-Man to take away yesterday.

Going to be a bee-u-tiful weekend, Not humid, pretty blue skies, no hots. ENJOY!

Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Viringer and Glimmer.

This week we made sure mum got the time for posting correct. She can't log in from day hunting to fix.

Mum was bizzy this week with our own flower beds. She went and got 12 bags of mulch on Caturday, then 8 more on Sunday. She spread it out in the beds next to the house to help keep the weeds down and show off the real plants.

The Caturday load, she had the whole back of the metal monster full of mulch. This is about as much as she could get in.
All 12 bags laid out in the front ready for mum to open them up and spread the stuff around.
Six bags done and half way through the bed, Mum laid it on really thick and heavy to protect the new plants. Which all of them are showing new leaf growth! That makes mum happy.

 Here are two of the plants, showing the new leaf growth and before mum got the mulch put in place.

Ducky watching from inside, making sure mum wasn't goofing off. Trust me, she wasn't goofing off!
Glimmer here, she even made it to the back of the house, did some on Caturday and the rest on Sunday.
Dirty fingers mum! She hates to wear gloves while she does this stuff.
Hi mum, I will sit by you as you rest. Take a short break and then finish up.
She  took down the oriole feeder and got that all cleaned up too. It was looking rather grungy.
Sunday she put down weed barrier and then lots of mulch. Now she won't have to try to get the grass eater in between the grape arbor and the down spout! At which point she knocks the downspout off!
Most of the weeding done, mulch down.
Here is a one of a couple of big piles of weeds she pulled. They were sort of taking over a few spots, glad she got them all pulled.
So lots happened this last week. Mum is happy to rest up her back from all the lifting.

See you next week. Love, Virginger and Glimmer.

Oh Yeah, something about Feetsball starting tonight with The Packers. Go Pack!

ManCat Monday

Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well. - Missy Dizick.

Well, first we can snuggle up with mum today since she won't have to go day hunt. She has been furry bizzy the past two days outside. So Virginger and Glimmer have been bizzy snoopervising her.

 Ducky helped with the snoopervision. Or maybe snoopervising the snoopervisers.
 Hanging out in mum's chair. She sat her lots reading, at least she did that when she wasn't outside getting all hot, sweaty and stinky outside.

Plus while she was sitting there she saw the end of a black kittie tail. She popped up out of the chair and grabbed both of her flashy boxes. The quick picture one and the one with the zoomer lens.
 No black cat but a pretty tabby with white socks and bib. It stopped and sat down and then got up and came over to mum, sniffed her fingers. Then mum got a quick little touch before it exited through the gap by the back gate.

Mum says the tail looked cool. A total black tip but with white sections on the bottom. All stripey and such. It never raised its tail, so not sure if a boy or girl cat. Mum says it looks all healthy, so maybe just out for a Sunday stroll through the neighborhood. 
 So we hope mum plans to take it easy today, she already did a lot this weekend. We will try to sit on her to purr and make her rest. Hope our Mericky furiends don't labor on Labor Day.
