ManCat Monday

The purity of a person's heart can be quickly measured by how they regard cats. - Anonymous Well that means our beans all must have pure hearts. They treat us really nice. We are fed and loved. They do stuff that is good for us, even when we don't like it, like taking us to the VET.

We show our love in return. We purr and meow at them, rub them and sleep with them. Sounds like a good arrangement to me.


Mum saw three vishus deers early Friday morning on the way to work. Actually not far from where we live. It was a mom deer with her not so little babies. They were really near the road eating apples that had fallen from the tree. Mum was happy that they were busy eating and did not run in front of her metal monster.

Mum was not around most of Sunday. She went to spend the day with Grampie and normally they both come here in the afternoon. But since Grampie's birthday is coming soon, mum took him to see a furry special show and then dinner. The show was of horsies, horsies that dance. The Lipizzaner Stallions. They had front row seats! Here they were parading the flag around on horseback. They had everyone rise and even sing the National Anthem. Mum thought that was nice. The horse was very calm even with all of the singing. Here are all 8 of the riders on their horses at one time doing a big circle and keeping in time very well. This horse is getting all excited, it is shaking its tail doing a good job showing his fancy footwork. Mum said 6 of the 8 riders were women. This guy was recognized towards the end of the show as he help rescue the Lipizzaner's at the end of World War II. He got a standing ovation from the crowd and rightly so. So they had a really nice day together. Mum said Grampie appreciated seeing the horsies as he grew up on a farm and worked with horsies when he was young. They had horse drawn farm equipment before they had motorized tractors and such.

Those Lipizzaners came here this year and MomBean wanted to go, but she and the Food Dude never go anywhere (or so she says). They're beautiful, though! I'm glad your Mum & Grampie had a great time!

Lippizaners are very special horses! My mom has seen them many times, and loves them! She is hoping to go to Vienna soon, and see the original Spanish Riding School and their Lippizaner stallions.
