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.

Caturday

Woohoo, welcome to the long weekend! Mum is happy, one less day for her to get up to go day hunt next week.

Not off to a fast start although we did get mum out of bed by 7 AM! MOL. You jump on the bed enough she gives up on trying to sleep.
Derby helping clear out mum brekkie for today. She says these are OK for a change of pace.
Then I plastered myself up against her arm to warm her up, not that she said she really needed warming. Sorry for the human skin exposure, she is still in her jammies!
Ducky just enjoying he nip carrot. So we are not too bizzy here. But mum say time for her to get dressed and get going. She has some outside stuff to do before it gets all warms outside.

Happy weekend all.

Garden Thursay

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Viringer and Glimmer.

Yep, mum mess this up. She hit publish but left the time way in the evening. Now we got it fixed. 

More work on the trail this week. Mum got home just as this ginormous truck drove down the trail and left a bunch of dirt on the side. Then they came with another thingy and made it all neat. Mum says she hopes they put grass seed down too.
 
 But even though the trail is a work in progress you can see people riding their bikes and walking. Mum walks it too, she just had to be careful not to get runned over by a truck!
 By the trail all all sorts of natural flowers like queen Anne's Lace. Here is a patch just down the trail.
 Mum never paid that much attention to how they looked before they got all open, but here are some pics from just starting to open to all bloomed.






 The daylilies are doing well. Mum didn't take any pictures, but they are starting to show new leaves. That is good!

That is all for this week. Love Virginger and Glimmer.

ManCat Monday

If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat. Mark Twain

Happy Monday gang. We had a quiet weekend. We watched mum work!  The usual laundry, cleaning and such, then she got out in the heat and used the grass eating Monster. Virginger and Glimmer had been on her to get it trimmed as it was getting all long and shaggy.

Otherwise we just hung out, napping and watching mum work. Mooching grilled chick-hen on both days when mum had dinner.

A World with Less Sparkle

We were all bummed yesterday when mum came home and told us she found out our dear furiend Sparkle had runned off to The Bridge.

We will miss you and your quest for World Cat Domination. Maybe we better do it in your honor. So shine on Sparkle and continue to inspire us. Purrs to your beans.

Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Viringer and Glimmer.

Yep mum was furry bizzy last weekend. First she took off on Caturday with Miss Lynn. This time they used mum's metal monster and weren't gone furrever. 

Mum went off to buy more plants for the yard, specifically she wanted daylillies to put in the front. Then as they grow, they hide the tulips and such as they die off. 
 Here are the two bags of stuff. She got stuff with names like South Seas, Pastel Picture, Stars Shall Fall, Royal Jester, Cherry Eyed Pumpkin and a freebie called Ruffled Memory. Mum found pictures out on the webs of the flowers, but they are copy righted, so she won't use them here.
They were all nicely labeled so you knew the name, how tall it grows and the colors too. Mum said they had over 800 different plants to choose from. They had them sorted out by color and mum was looking for peachy, melony, yellow or not really orinch orinch ones.
Instructions, well, first soak them for a few hours before plunking them in the dirt. So mum waited to plant them on Sunday.
Mum called on me to hold open the one bucket. See a new and useful thing to do with those mancats litter buckets!
Plus I needed to hold down mum's preliminary plan of where she was going to put stuff. But as she planted it wasn't working like she expected. So she moved them around.
One little guy in the ground and a few more below.

It is sort of fuzzy, but do you see the earth worm? Mum says that is a good sign that the dirt is good. Otherwise we would have no worms.
Once she had the plants all done, she got destructive and got these posts out of the ground. They were getting wobbly and all rotted at the bottom.
So good bye fake sea gull! One less fevver around, which should make The Trout Towne Tabbies happy.
Mum putted the last lily here. This one was the freebee that she got. It rained good on Monday night, so besides mum watering them, they got a good overnight soaking.
 Here are two lilies that we already have in the back. Mum does not amember what there names are. She would have to go look it up since she saves her plant information.
 Plus here is mum's drawing where things got planted, this is what she was going to work on when Derby got out and he got beer splashed on him. Mum rubbed it off, he didn't get tipsy!
Wow, lots happened this past week. Hope you enjoyed and we hope to enjoy some flowers next summer.

Love, Virginger and Glimmer.

The Pod

Hey everyone! Thanks for all your comments on us and our napping pod. We do like it. It is by the big windows that go to the floor, we get nice sunpuddles there except in the winter.

You said for mum to go buy another one. She can't! She didn't even buy this one. She won it at one of her racy party events years ago. Go back here and see how much other stuff she won. She made a haul on it that weekend. Even afor she got it in the house I had claimed it!

So here I am,  resting on it right after she got it and moved it to where it stays. Sometimes she takes it apart and washes it, but we fur it right back up.

Ocassionally we do share, but not furry often. We are not the nap together buddies like some cats are.
But mum does have photo proof that sometimes we do share. Or I was doing my best to squish the little runt.

But otherwise our little green beds, yeah mum has two of them We use either one as we like.
Even better, mum has a mooovie when we tried to share the same bed.

 Enjoy!

ManCat Monday

The purpose of the liberal arts education is to learn that a person can like both cats and dogs. Anonymous

Happy Monday Gang, Derby here! I had fun this weekend. I GOT OUTSIDE!
I didn't get far, but I did get out. Mum was going out to draw where she planted stuff yesterday. I zipped right past her!
 Do you see where my fur is wet? Not water, mum spilled her beer on me when she first tried to grab me. When she realized I was more interested nomming the deaded leaves, she had time to set down her paper and beer. Then she picked me up and sat with me for a few minutes outside until I got too restless for her.
 Here you can see the beer splashes and her notepad!  She just laid them down until after she put me back inside.

Since she worked so hard digging and such, she made herself a furry nice dinner. Grilled beast and eggyplant, corn on the cob. 
Yes, we did get some, though I thinks Ducky got more than I did!
We will let Virginger report on Thursday all of mum's outside stuff. She did lots this weekend.

Caturday

Happy Weekend All.

We are just hanging out. Mum has been going to bed early and sleeping as much as she can. She needed to recover from a long day on Tuesday coming back from the mayo place with Miss Lynn.

She took a few pictures as they were way up in the air on the highest floor in the building. 

 Mum thinks this building is neat, complete with gargoyles!
So we are purring on her and glad she is getting rest. Dr Derby and Dr Ducky purrscribe more naps and sleeps!
