Tuesday Short Tale

Saturday afternoon mom was cleaning out the closet...she found this darling thing in a box...
She has no clue where she came from or how long she has been in hiding.  

Mom is a firm believer in things appearing with you MOST need them. Below is a close up of the age yellowed sign around her neck.  MOL MOL MOL

I think she is could also be called a HBO Doll. She must have sensed  we are all sick and tired YES sick and tired of 
renovations.  She appeared to help us cope for what we hope is the final week.  Mom is wondering if she might also be a voodoo

Mom will following these instructions today because they will 
be tearing out the floor and vanity in our guest bathroom.

Monday Mews

These two are not new just arranged in a 
most interesting style, I'm calling it Chic Cat Split Level.
Cathedral Ceilings and all.
  Mom was amazed I was able to jump in them like this.
But they say if a cat's head fits so will her body.  Easy peasy.
As you can see on the bottom right, my cozy cat room is on the lower level.
I fit purrfectly too.

Saturday Photo Hunt

We love Saturday Photo Hunt click
here for a list of words
Today's word is

H A R D: adv
requiring a great deal of effort 

On Monday Robin posted that she hoped Christmas would forgive her for not taking him
on vacation.  It reminded mom of another Toto Story
Dachshunds have PhD's in Sweet revenge.
Mom told me they boarded Toto for 11 days when they went to Hawaii in the early 1980's.
When Mom picked Toto up from boarding he acted like he was so happy to see her.  She took him on a nice walkabout to potty.  He potty on every blade of grass in the yard.  However, as soon as mom got him in the house and took off his leash he barked to get her attention.  When Mom turned around he lifted that vertically challenged back leg on the kitchen table leg,  leaving a river we'll call I Pee Freely.  The entire time he was giving mom an evil eye daring her to leave him again.
When he finished he walked to his bed for a nap.
The kitchen floor was linoleum so it was an easy clean up.
She was amazed he had any pp left in him but evidently Toto was saving all the peepee

Mom said it was H A R D to be mad at that sweet face.
I hear some laughter coming from Blogville...yep mom was wearing desert boots(that is what they were called back then) and bell bottom pants.  This was Toto's favorite place to sit at night


WE HAD  first floor carpet installed on Friday.  We will be moving STUFF around to other rooms in preparation for more carpet installation next week.  Three rooms  four to go.

Mom wanted to share this adorable true story with you
Date July 20, 2016 6:30ish pm

Yesterday after supper I took Kasi for a walk.  A darling little girl was playing with her dad and sister in her yard.  She said is that a sheep dog.  I said no it is a border collie.  She asked to pet her.  She said where are you going.  I said we are taking a short, slow walk.  She asked, why I said well Kasi is an older dog and she has some arthritis in her back legs so we walk slow. She looked at me very concerned and said "I don't know what 'the ritis' is.  Is it like a broken bone?"  I told her Kasi has sore places in her joints and they hurt some times.  She said Oh!!
As they say, Out of the mouths of babes....

MADI here:  Kasi and I are gonna have to have a heart 2 heart about HOW good she is at taking her meds.  She makes me look bad.  Mom gets a dollop of peanut butter on her finger, puts Kasi's med in the peanut butter.  It is gone in a nano second.  Mom tried that on me once. I licked around the pill.  I say I'm the smart one.

This week's Fill in's

FridaY Friendly Fill-Ins, with Phoebe, she came up with the first 2 and her co-host Annie of McGuffy's Reader came up with the second 2.
Friendly Fill-Ins Week 11
1. I wish I could afford to hire someone to sit in for me (madi) when the flashy beast comes out.
2. Zucchini   IS HARD TO SPELL.
3. One Summertime memory I/Mom recall is the fire department turning on the fire hydrants for us to play in it was the the precursor to today's water parks.
4. This Summer,    RELENTLESSLY H O T

Thursday Question: Where's the stuff...

....that belongs in here?
I hope you find it before SIS and BIL come for a visit.
Photo just after SIS and BIL's room was painted.  The color is called Honeydew.  It shows up best in the top left photo
TOGM isn't sure why pictures have different colors. MOL

Guess what yesterday Mom started taking care of Kasi until Sunday at Noon.
Kasi really likes my mom.  Any time she sees mom she comes running up to her
leans on her leg and waits for a head rub.  
Mom will go next door 2 or 3 times a day to check on her and let her out in their yard.  Mom  will take Kasi for walks in the mornings.  Her peeps told mom Kasi always does her morning
duties in the backyard no walk necessary until afternoon.  Guess what..
When Kasi saw Mom she thought yay Walkie.  Mom let her out the deck door as instructed.
Kasi barked, she never barks, then she whined.  She was having none of that backyard
stuff.  She came in planted herself firmly at the front door waiting.
