Throw Back Thursday

Hello and welcome to Thursday. We had a tiny bit of snow so our ground is white. But the weather guesser was a bit off which made mum happy. Less snow during the day, now the guesser guy is saying it will come overnight, tonight. We shall see!
 Me and mum just hung out yesterday. Watched the snow, the fevvers. The biggest thing mum did was to get the garbage and recycling out to the street for pickup. The recycling thing is full, it has to go out.

Today's Throw Back takes us back to 2009 with Derby. Just hanging out with mum.

ManCat Monday

If a dog jumps into your lap it is because he is fond of you; but if a cat does the same thing it is because your lap is warmer. - A. N. Whitehead
Well I am not exactly 'on' mum's lap but sitting between her legs. But I can tell by the picture that this was taken during warmer weather as mum has her short legged pants on! Mum does keep it warm enough in the house for us to be nice and comfortable, even when it is cold and nasty outside. Plus I can nap in front of the various heaty spots.

We just hung out this weekend. Mum went out to Grampie's to make sure his TV will work in three weeks with the digital conversion. His converter box works fine but the place where he lives has to tweak something as he is missing two channels that he likes to watch. We know it works as all of the other digital channels are there.

Mr Hawk made a visit this weekend sitting in our crabby apple tree for a few minutes. Mum didn't get a picture of him but he flew by and landed just where we could see his tail fevvers. All of the little birds had flown off and were safe.


Feetsball Report

There was no feetsball this weekend! But just wait until next weekend with the Stouper Bowl for the last meaningful game of the season.

But mum did watch a tiny bit of a car race that went on for a whole day. She watched the start on Saturday and they didn't finish until Sunday. What was exciting is that normally these races aren't even close at the finish, whoever wins wins by a lap or two. This year in the last 45 minutes of the race a pass came to change the lead and the two cars were close to each other right up to the end. The racing season has begun.
