3 Ta(i)l(e)s Tuesday


#1. Cat tail

#2. Mom Tale
They say necessity is the Mother of Invention.  OMCs my Mother is now an inventor. She KNEW she needed a different set up in our office so that she would not have to sit all the time.
Of course she could have purchased a special standing desk but the desk she has was her Daddy's and did not want to replace it
TOGM had a brain wave yesterday morning. She took a few
measurements and then off to her favorite store Bed, Bath and Beyond to look for a bed tray with legs.
Ta Da introducing our new portable desk extension.
 Not only is it the purrfect size and has room for the keyboard and mouse, it is made of wood the same color as the wood on the desk. From the top of the desk to the top of the computer the measurement is 25 1/4".  She and Dad share this space so all she has to do when she is finished is take the tray away.  BUT DAD was quite impressed with the set up and he might even use it some too!!
The bed tray was $29.99 and I had had $10.00 coupon
Everytime I go to Bed, Bath and Beyond I found exactly what I need for my bed or bath and now
I have found the 'beyond'!!




#3. Tuesday Teaser Cheer Tale
Blogville's favorite Tuesday Teaser cheerleader, SuzieQ, (whom I admire immensely) wrote me a cheer.
Teddy mentioned he might need to lose a few of his 16+ pounds.  I asked him  if I could have them 'cause I'd really like to get to 8 lbs again.  I'm close but not there yet. It amazes me how quickly I lost some poundage and how hard it is to put it back on.
 SuzieQ wrote this:
Madi, Madi, Madi
Don't try to be a "fatty"
Slim and trim and pretty
That's us - aren't we just so witty?
We don't want to hurt our hearts
We must learn to use our "smarts"
It's smart to be slim and dreamy
That way we get more ice creamy!!! 
 Your pal SuzieQ

She thinks it is on the mend but she is only sitting for about 10 minutes at a time.
If we miss stopping by we apologize but you know when TOGM is your typist
you can only do so much.  Mom prepares our post about 5 days in advance so
no worries about typing all the plates above she did those earlier this week.

Friday, September 22, 2017

Welcome to Blanket Volleyball


First time ever in BLOGVILLE 


Of course like with any games/events there are a few rules from YAM-Aunty aka  the Rule(r) ...that might have been altered a wee bit!! So we'll get those out of the way lickety split



Rules: 
1. Anybuddy who is caught butt sniffin' will be sent to time out
2. If you are caught hissin', you will be instantly missin' from the games
3. No leg lifting, squatting and FOR sure no diggin' on the equipment
4. No bitey face just kissy face
5. At the end of each game, there will be paw shakin' and huggin'
6. Most impawtant rule is The Rule(r) will not always appear as the beautiful, well dressed Official you see above. She has lots of tools and can see all that goes on so 
B E W A R E!!


Objective: 
Fling that ball any which way you can to keep enemy opponent from getting it

Venue: Blanket Volley ball has an indoor and an outdoor court.  
The above rules apply for both venues.

Equipment: 
Towels or blankets for each pair
OKEY DOKEY POKEY LETS GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD



FIRST GAME Out of Doors
Tuiren, Lucy, Misty and Fenris working well as a team keeping their
eyes (not) on the ball but lo and behold they get it over the net
Here the crowd roaring!!
the Rule(r) has accused Madi of squatting or digging, but Madi stands her ground








Yang got really excited gave that ball a fling right to Madi

Scylla and Chimera wanted no part of this action and Yep they all heard the Rule(r) blow the whistle on the play



OMCs everybuddy thought inside Blanket Volleyball would be calm I think we'll head
back outside


Lightning, Mayor Arty, Jakey and Yin were enjoying a friendly
game when lo and behold ...this happened
Madi remember no hissy kitties allowed





This is what happens when you let two independent German men on the field at the same time.

Team AireOregon took on a ton of two leggers




Huggie Puggies Mabel and Hazel put an entirely new 'TWIST' to playing
Blanket Volleyball.  They used their brains instead of brawn


Team Black Beauties Millie (L) Siddhartha(R)were winning then the Rule(r) called a
Somehow from some unknown place Millie jumped smack in the middle of the blankie and someone started playing Blanket Volley ball with all the wrong balls


OMCs I was in a sunpuddle lazing about and watching Walter practices his moves,
when all of a sudden look who showed up the newest Woonderful pup...Timber.




Phoebe was playing one on one when her opponent literally gave up
Rule(r) is staying really busy with these games I hope and purr she isn't gonna demand
extra treats for the extra overtime.



2 Vertically Challenged Blanket Volleyball players with their own style



Somebuddy on the sidelines complained about the type of ball...the Rule(r) checked her handbook.


Oh my cats Phod and Lee trekked all the way from Canada to pawticipate...they 
got a wee bit off course.  Thank goodness The Rule(r) hears and sees all

Oh a once in a lifetime event!!!!!


What happens when a Buttie Pillar Princess, Margarita Queen and Norwegian Mouse
meet on the Blanket Volley Ball court?

Answer: The Rule(r) blows her whistle.

All 3 of them have their own rules and came with their own balls tools


Rule(r) had to oust Mr. Jack Freckles and Bertie because noses and tails are not allowed


Mom and I thank YAM-Aunty aka  Rule(r) for all her hard work, for wearing so many faces and showing up in so many places during the Blanket Volley Ball event!  
She was EVERYWHERE and SAW ALL! 
She graciously sent us a head shot and told us
to do something silly with it!!  YAM-Aunty we hope I sillies tickled your funny bone.


We are officially folding up our blankies and say

We also thank all of our able bodied pawticipants for their pawsitive attitudes and agility
and for all who stopped by to hopefully enjoy our craziness. 
We thank DB Boyz and Idaho Pug Ranch
 for hosting the picnic and Barn dance
