After scolding one's cat one looks into its face and is seized by the ugly suspicion that it understood every word. And has filed it for reference.- Charlotte Gray
Lux asked us to show our favorite expression. Mine is one of 'I want to be alone'. I know you are there with the flashy box thing, but I am trying to nap. Leave me alone. When I want your attention I will look you up. I was not scolded just before this picture, just disturbed from my nap.
We had Mr Hawk visit Sunday afternoon. Mum was sitting outside reading (not Harry Potter) and I was sitting just inside the windows that go all the way to the floor. Suddenly every birdie scattered. Even a squirrel in the neighbor's tree flattened itself against the tree. Into that very tree landed the hawk. He sat there for a few seconds, then flew over to sit in OUR crabby apple tree! Mum and I were about 20 feet from it. It looked at mum for a few minutes and then flew off to the west. I think he figured mum as a little bigger than he could take on and I was safe inside the house.
Mum was mad that she didn't have her camera outside. On Saturday she did have it out there and took lots of pictures of birdies. But today she wanted to finish her book, so she didn't want to be stopping to take pictures. Now she is mad that she didn't have it with her.
I have been sitting at the open windows lately and calling out in a loud Merrowwwr. I have sensed a new kittie around and last night he finally showed his or her face. It is a little black kittie. Mum saw him too but when she looked out the window it ranned away. So the kittie must be scared of beans. Mum will see if we can track it down. It isn't a kittie we have seen before.
We don't even have that many kitties in the neighborhood anymore. The people behind us who used to leave their kitties wander around are gone. The same people are there but now no kitties, just a new baby. The kitties went away when the new baby came. I hope they found a nice new home.
Mum did cheat on the Harry Potter thing. She was in store that had the books out for sale. So she opened it and took a quick look at the end. So she knows who survived etc, that is what she basically wanted to know. The details of how it got to the end, she will deal with later.
Mum will use the local library for the book and not buy it. There are over 50 people waiting to read the book, but they do have 8 copies of the book to loan out. Mum figures that when the waiting list gets shorter AND she knows she will have the time to read it she will sign up. They only let you have the book for a week, and sometimes mum is busy where she wouldn't have time to get a book readed within one week.
If your beans have been sitting and reading all weekend, tell them it is time to get up and do a good stretch. It is not good to just sit in the same position for hours and hours.
Everyone, S T R E T C H. Very good. Repeat S T R E T C H. That is all, you can return to your regular duties.
