Company is here & follow up from SA Madi


Mom took a vacation day today to get ready for my Sis and her hubby's visit. Since she didn't have to work, she made a trip to Fresh Market to see what was new. Look at all the candy...oh me oh my my wasit is expanding just looking at it. Just so you know Fresh Market has lots of healthy food too. Mom just thought this was very colorful.
Black footie update: After supper, Mom showed my sis and her hubby the freshly washed footies. Everyone got a real laugh out of the rest of the story and they all praised my investigative skills. Seems I might have a future in solving mysteries. Well we close for now and wish everyone a good Friday evening.
As for the Puppy Vampire club...more details will be forthcoming on that. Thanks to Dory for inviting us to join...even though I'm not a puppy...just a puppy at heart.

Special Agent (aka SA) Madi on duty

My human sis and her hubby are coming this weekend...Mom was in their room changing linens and tidying up last night. I love changing linens (I bet all my other kitty friends do too). I like to play on the floor in the old linens. Anyway, last night Mom squeals...(she does that a lot it really gets on my kitty nerves) SA Madi I need you we have a mystery. I come to attention put on my SA face, shake my fur (I've been under the sheets). I need to look professional. I slink on over to where Mom is...we do indeed have a mystery. Mom's foot had brushed against something under the bed. SA Madi says step back Mom let me exam the evidence. It is black, there are two of them and very suspicious. Mind you I'm not the bravest cookie in the jar, but I can run fast if they move. I get closer give it a sniff and say Mom you are so silly it is just a pair of sister's footies. We both lol. Mom says Madi I bet sis lost these last time she was here visiting...you know she sleeps in footies. We'll have to tell her our funny story this weekend. Sis is also mom to my buddy Harley-cat so she'll just lol too.

Getting to know Mom

Mom and I saw this on Scooter's page.
Rules: (1) post 7 facts about yourself and a photo OR (2) post 10 facts about yourself with no picture OR (3)post a childhood picture of yourself." Since everyone is always looking at pictures of me (Madi), I think it is time you see Mom. Here she is as a wee lass (~14). We combined two options:
1. She loves all creatures great and small
2. She could eat her weight in Cheerios
3. Mention chocolate if you want to see her eyes glaze over
4. Favorite cold drink Sweet Tea, favorite hot drink black coffee...she is a 'Starbucks Junkie'
5. LOVES N C STATE UNIVERSITY
6. Got married on Valentine's Day 1970
7. SHE strongly DISLIKES hot, hazy, humid weather.

Monday Memories: Salute to my Parents

Mama and Daddy August 1995. Trip to Grandfather Mountain, NC.
Last July both of them were gravely ill. Mama had lost 100% mobility and Daddy had just come out of a month long medically induced coma. Today they are a little more fragile but ON THEIR FEET and back home together. Mama's favorite saying is 'old age is not for sissies'. While watching them fight to regain their independence over the last year, I learned the meaning of TRUE GRIT.
I'm not sure I could endured all they did this last year.

WAY TO GO MAMA (81) DADDY (80).
