Madi: Mom and Dad's latest project as I saw it


This is a picture of a new print Mom and Dad gave each other for Christmas. Dad picked it up from the frame house last week. They have been wanting something to hang over the door into our family room...it is perfect.

Now to tell you how it got way up there and what it took to get it there.
Here I am watching the process from afar.

Here is the rest of the story:
I just love it when Mom and Dad have projects.
The spot where I'm sitting is normally in the way of foot traffic; however, today
it is the safest spot and the best place to watch the peeps and I have my mouse to keep me company.
What I'm staring at is Dad preparing to hang the new picture.

Evidently it takes a lot of equipment.

1. ladder

2. hammer

3. level

4. ruler

5. pencil

6. note pad

7. nails and hooks
(items 2-7 are on 'MY' couch thus I'm on the floor)
8. Flashy beast in the capable hands of the Mom

Why so much equipment you ask? Well Dad is very precise when he hangs pictures and there is no room for error (Mom's exact words).
Mom has the flash beast out because she knows there will be good photo opts......
Mom did promise Dad she would not take any pictures of Dad!!!???
I'm not to sure about the ladder so I decided to keep my distance.

Madi one curious kitty cat and Dad you did a great job!!!

According to Mom's Whimsical Calendar, there are not special days until early next week.

  2. Ah, it's very hard to get a large picture in the right place on the wall. You did very well! I think it was all the supervision you had!

  4. Well done Dad - ours is also very precise and not keen to have pics taken.
    Well not for the blog!
    The picture looks lovely and we are glad you were able to watch all the activity.
    These humans can be quite amusing at times like this.......especially sometimes they hammer their finger instead of the nail and they make great sounds!
    love and kisses

  9. Madi, as much as I appreciate how cautious you are, I'm surprised. You're a curious kat, aren't you? How come you weren't sniffing or on top of or under the ladder? Now if it was a hat instead of a ladder...
    Twink!

  13. Oh Madi, you are such a good supervisor. The picture is so straight and in the perfect location. How could your humans have done this without you? We also think the picture is beautiful.

    Cindi's vet gave her a prescription for Revolution. It covers everything including heartworms, ear mites and fleas. She goes outside in our fenced yard with me sometimes, a lot in the summer. It's a little vial of liquid that goes on the skin on the back of her neck. I even put in a pocket of my jeans for awhile to make sure it isn't too cold but she still hates it!

    Hugs & Kitty kisses,
    Judy and Cindi Lou

  14. Hi Madi

    The picture looks great and I sure that spot in the middle of the floor also gave you a good view to snoopervise too, at least thats what the animals do here.

  17. Mom and Dad did a great job hanging the very nice painting, Madi!
    Well, even though you could not sit on YOUR couch, at least you got a nice warm sunny spot to supervise!
    My Mom calls me "under foot puppy" when it comes to projects!
