ManCat Monday - Derby's Purrthday

You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat. - Albert Einstein, when asked to describe radio

Happy Purrthday to Me, Happy Purrthday to Me, Happy Purrthday, Happy Purrthday, Happy Purrthday to ME.

Yep it is me's, Derby, purrthday! Whoohoo, that means party time. Another reason to cellybrate TockTober, my month!

Feetsball Report

The Pack - had a terrific game,they beat the black kitties from Carolina. ARodg did so well early on they let him have part of the last quarter off. The defense did good too. Lots of leaping at Lambeau with all of the scores.

The Broncos -played on Sunday night against the 49ers. Mr Peyton had to get 3 TD's to get past Grampa Brett in the record book. No problemo gang, he had it done in the first half. This is a record that may last for a long time. The next active guy on the list has 374. ARodg has 206.

Let's get back to the party! Happy Purrthday to ME!

Happy Caturday gang. We are happy to have mum home with us today, she is skipping the last racy car event of the season. She is super glad she isn't going, it is 40 and raining at the moment.

Yesterday she got up super early and then took off with Miss Jane and Mr Gary to a sort of racy event. They marched for dimes and drove for babies. Mum said they made 91 thousand green papers for charity! Wow, that would keep us in treats and toys furrever.

But the weather guessers got yesterday wrong too. Sunny and 60, was more like 50 and misty. But she still had a nice time.
 Even with the dark skies the tree colors where OK. She liked this bunch of trees and how the top was so nicely shaped even though more than one tree!
Regular peoples get to pay lots of charity money to drive their own cars on the racy track, sort of fast but not racy fast.
This guy is mum tooth doctor. She has known him furrever and on week days he drives a hybrid! So he dragged the old Acura NSX out for the day. Said in the good old days he was part of the Datsun gang and she saw others from the Datsun gang too yesterday.

Then some people with fancy cars gave rides for charity money. One nice red Furrari and.........

 a Lambpurrghini
Stay warm and dry kitties. We have both claimed a heaty spot to stay all warms. You stay warm too.

Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Viringer and Glimmer.

Yes, this is a late post. Mum was tired after she got home from her bored of the library meeting, did some chores and such, then went to bed. She amembered she hadn't helped me with this as she left to go day hunting this morning.

We had three and a half day of clouds and rain. This afternoon it finally got sunny again. By the time mum was home the sun was already behind the naybor's trees.

 Our little tree out front is now bare of leaves. Some of the trees in the back are that way too. But the big maples haven't started shedding much.
 Glimmer here from the back yard. Mum told me I did a super duper job for her, do you see it? Maybe we need to get a bit closer.
 Now really up close! Yup, that is a deaded mousie that mum found when she was mowing the lawn last Caturday.

 She let me get all close to it and told me to make sure that the mousies stay out of the house. You bet I will keep working on this.
 So hope you enjoyed the short tour. See you next week, hopefully on time!

Love Virginger and Glimmer.

Both paws down to balance myself, but, then I can't reach into the basekt. MOUSES! I can't get it! Mum fish out my mousie! Please?

ManCat Monday

A meow massages the heart. - Stuart McMillan

We had a marrvvy weekend. Bright sunshine so lots of sun puddles to nap in. Enuf warms outside that mum could open the windows a bit too.

Next Monday it will be Derby's purrthday, so please stop by for a good time.
 Nice Sunday AM in the front window in the sun. 
 Co-napping on the leopard pillow in the afternoon.
 Ducky getting the pillow all on his own, go away with the flashy box so I can nap!
 Mum sitting outside on Caturday afternoon soaking up some sun too. She did find enuf ambition on Caturday to mow the lawn, that was it. Sunday she got the laundry done. Otherwise, napping and reading for the rest of the days. Oh and watching Packer feetsball. Minimal cooking too, just heating things up. Said she needed a quieter weekend for a change.

Feetsball Report

The Pack - Rescued victory from the jaws of defeet from the Fish in Miami! With seconds remaining, they faked a play spiking the ball to then throw it and get out of bounds, then ARodg threw a TD pass. The Fish then tried a razzle-dazzle play tossing it from player to player to player, until somebody dropped it and then the game was over!

The Broncos - The Broncos went to the Big Apple and beat the Jets. Mr Peyton is still behind Grampa Brett in career TD's but getting closer.They play next Sunday night, so maybe we can see him either tie or break the record.

Hope everyone has a good week!

Hi all, we are trying to get mum going but she says she has no ambition, whatever that is. We don't see a box around here labeled that way.

Bright and sunny, but noisy. The naybors are getting a new roof, so guys climbing on the house and pounding away. Mum says by the looks of things they are about done.
 Here are our poses from this AM, we have been taking turns in the front window with the sun.
Here are some pictures of trees that aren't ours that are pretty with colored leaves. She sees these when she drives to day hunt.
 This one is about 3 streets away, the sun wasn't even high enuf to have it all in the sun, and that white dot to the left of the tree is Mr Moon. He shows up in several of the pictures.
 Just where mum turns on the highway and the car shadow is her car
 Getting closer to the day hunt place, mum says this one looked nicer a few days ago.
 Getting closer to the day hunt place, this one too mum said was nicer a few days ago, plus this place had sheeps this summer
 Just down the road from mum's day hunt place. The grass was all frosty out there, but we haven't had frosting anywhere but on the house roofs so far.
We hope everyone has a good week. We are going to purr on mum and help her find ambition.

Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Viringer and Glimmer.

While it was all cool over the weekend, we have had another stretch of good days. Sunny and warmish for this time of year. We will take them.

 On Caturday our little tree in the front looked like this, leaves dropping but still leaves on the tree.
Wednesday, yesterday, mum took another picture, most of the leaves are off and we can now clearly see what mum thinks is a sqwerl nest. That would be the dark blog just to the left of the center of the picture.

 Pictures of the trees in the back, one turning yellow and mum says it too is starting to drop leaves.
 Then this is the little maple in the back, it was planted too close to the other one, so isn't growing well at all. Has dead branches and very few leaves this year. So next spring before they come to pick up the brush in the spring, she will take it down.

We snoozed through the eclipse last night. What is the big deal about a shadow? We see them all time.

See you next week. Love Virginger and Glimmer.

Take Me Along?

This was mum's bag when she was off galivanting with Miss Lynn over the summer. I, heck, we both could fit in here just fine. Take us with you?
