Tuesday This and That


A few weeks ago week Flynn and Miss Megan wanted to know why I call Mum, Mum. Well, when I first got here I called her The Lady. Then after I was here a while, I started calling her Mum, cuz Derby called her Mum.

Why did Derby call her Mum? She wasn't a man, so not a human, but a hu-mum! You have to go back to Derby's first ever blog post here, to read about it.

No mum is not English, British, Aussie or Kiwi, she just prefers the Mum to Mom. Kinder, gentle name.

Also Miss Megan said not to worry about the overgrown garden and weeds as we would soon have snow! YIKES LADY! Snow should not be here for at least two months, if not longer. Sheesh, don't wish that white stuff on us any early than we have to.

For mum, it should snow lightly, over night only, only on the grass, not the roads, for the days up to Christmouse so there is a white Christmouse. Then it can warm up and melt and be good driving. BUT, cold enough at the ski place so kids and people who like to break legs and try to do that.

Mum has not figured out my hidey spot from Sunday, but I have being nice to her and showing up at the door when she comes home from day hunting. Got to keep her guessing!

Thank you very much for the explanations, Ducky. Much appreciated.

As for the garden - I was trying to think of a positive for your mum so that she didn't concern herself too much about the garden. Sorry - I didn't mean to bring down the snow on you any earlier! LOL

We hope for your sake that the snow doesn't show up too soon. Once it shows up, it doesn't exactly go again in a hurry for you, does it?

Flynn said...

Thank you for explaining Ducky. My mum agrees that mum sounds gentler than mom.

Georgia and Julie said...

Funny, our mom used to call her Mum...Mum.
When we first started blogging we would see "Mom",
so we just did what everyone else did.
We call her mum though ;)
Sometimes we call humans "beans" because they are human "beans" . hahaha
We are not looking forward to the return of snow :/

Eileen said...

We like it when other beans are called mum because we call our mom mom, well actually we just call her mom and we'd probably get more confused if there was more moms and less mums. We think.

Keep her guessing Ducky!

Well, you explaining about "mum" explains why we keep thinking you are in England... MOL!

The Island Cats said...

Thanks for telling us why you call your mum "mum." We sure hope the snow stays away for a long time. We're not ready for it!

You are so sweet to greet her when she gets home, Ducky!

Hoping our winter won't be too brutal this year! We want your mum to be able to get to her day job safely.
