ManCat Monday

Cats, no less liquid than their shadows, offer no angles to the wind. They slip, diminished, neat, through loopholes less than themselves. - A. S. J. Tessimond
Hope everycat and bean had a good weekend. Mum was around all weekend doing the normal stuff of washing, cooking, rug sucking monster etc. I napped and ate and napped some more.
The weekend sports report.

Packers - Lost and the QB may be hurt bad enough not to play.

Brett the Jet - won big time and set records.

Colts - Got the weekend off.

The biggest sports news locally is that the local baseball team The Brew Crew gets to play more games! They were splashing each other with fizzy beverages and were jumping up and down. Mum says that is a good thing. Do not confuse The Brew Crew with The Crew, George, Tipper, Max and Misty, who also live in Whiskerconsin. So mum will have to start watching baseball now too.

Mum took me outside on Saturday. She opened the back door to go scare off the squirrel from the birdie feeder. So she scooped me up to help her. Then while we were out there she put me down on the ground for a bit. I chewed at some grass and then wandered a little bit but mum was always close by, when I got to close to the fence she turned me around so I walked back to the house. It was warm out so it felt good to be outside.

It has also gotten cooler here on Sunday, so mum does not have the windows wide open any more. They are open, just not wide open. She had to get the grass eating monster out Sunday too.

Farewell to Nelson LaPurr of Meowers from Missouri. He has set sail for The Rainbow Bridge, until we meet again my furiend.

The morning glories are going crazy! All summer maybe we got a couple of flowers a day. One day we had 5. On Friday we had 14 and had 12 each on Saturday and Sunday again. The plant must like the weather lately, mum isn't doing anything different.

Sad about Cap'n Nels. I didn't know him long but he seemed to be a fine cat and pirate captain.

We love when it gets cooler and we can sit in the windows and listen to the birdies chirp and see the bunnies run across the lawn. Sounds like you had a great weekend!

The morning glories look great, and I love that quote to open today's post. Tough loss for the Pack. Hope the QB isn't hurt too bad. Love this time of year for the open windows.

Love that first picture Derby.

Congratulations to the Brewers. My mum doesn't really follow Mericky sport but she likes watching bits of baseball (rounders!) Hope your team do well in the play-offs. They only show baseball here at like 3 a.m. so she sometimes videos bits.

The morning glories are pretty. We are having a big gale tomorrow, mum is worried about the sunflowers getting blown down just as they are flowering. They are tied up to big sticks.
