South of the border

Since we are in a cycle of song, I can sing about where mum went.

South of the border - down Mexico way
That's where mummy went to work all the day
And now as I wander in the house each day- my thoughts ever stray
South of the border - down Mexico way

She was a working - in old Monterrey
It was no fiesta- furry hot every day
no siestas and little time to play
South of the border - down Mexico way
Ay! Ay! Ay! Ay!Ay! Ay! Ay! Ay!Ay! Ay! Ay! Ay!Ay! Ay! Ay! Ay!

So here are some pictures she took.

Saddleback Mountain
Mum's hotel room.
This is one gignormous bed. This would sleep squillians of kitties.
The view from mum's hotel room. Hehe, you can see mum in the reflection of the window.

More pictures later.

So that is where mum wented this past week. She did say she bye before she lefted, but I haven't ever had her be gone that long, and leave me at home. Last time she wented somewhere she took me to the kittie spa. She wanted to see how I would do staying by myself with Miss Lynn coming in to take care of me once a day.

Miss Lynn did a furry good job. I gotted my food, water and box taken care of. Plus she would stay and play. But she couldn't stay all the time, so I talked a lot to her, told her I missed mum. She kept saying mum would be home soon.

But mum had problems getting home. She gotted from Mexico to Chicago OK, but then the air thingy got delayed, then cancelled to Milwaukee. Thankfully it is close enough, they air people gave them a ticket to get a bus ride back to the Milwaukee airport. So she got home, but much later than she expected.

And she was furry good to me once she gotted home. I got loads and loads of scritches, treats and just general lovin'. Even this morning, we spent lots of time together. I jumped on the bed and gots my hugs, pets and scritches.

So things are getting back to normal.


  1. Oh, wow, Derby, a Mexican song! Did your momma take many siesta while she was South of the Border? Did she have a margarita? Did she buy a sombrero? More important, did she buy you something?. Nice hotel room. Love the pichers!
