RETIREMENT Report Day 1

Today's post is about day one of Mom's
R E T I R E M E N T
Today's pictures are of me coveting admiring a
few of the things Mom brought home yesterday.
The Graduate Students and Post Docs Mom worked with
gave her a 'SURPRISE' party after lunch yesterday.
There was cake, cookies, a vase of roses, a bouquet of
Spring flowers and sunflowers, china teapot and cups and
this little ditty which is truly AMAZING and should be
an official cat toy. 
 It is a clear glass paperweight with kitty carvings inside.
It sits on a revolving base with colored lights....
I'm here to tell you I love it and I watched it for a long time.

I never met a balloon I didn't like....well until I met this one.
It is alive, everytime the peeps pass, it moves.  I'll be watching it from the table because, I am sure it is possessed by the evil retirement virus!!!

 OK NOW FOR THE PART WHERE DAD AND I HAND OUT
DEMERITS ON MOM'S FIRST DAY OF RETIREMENT.

DEMERITS FROM MADI
1.  THEY GOT UP 20 MINUTES LATE...I THOUGHT I WOULD STARVE
2. IN SPITE OF WHAT SHE THINKS I DID SEE HER TAKE THIS PICUTRE. AND YES IT DOES MAKE MY LOVELY,
LUSCIOUS BUTT LOOK BIG BUT ONLY BECAUSE
SHE CROPPED IT, THEN ENLARGED IT!!!
Bad, bad Mom!!!
TOTAL DEMERITS FOR DAY 1
10

DEMERITS FROM DAD
1.  He told me Mom is really a REBEL in Mom's Clothing.
Evidently she misbehaved at Panera during breakfast.
Dad has a routine and Mom did not follow one single rule!
2.  After that fiasco, Mom joined Dad on his daily walk around the mall.  Dad has a route he likes...Mom purposedly refused to
follow his route...oh she stayed with him Dad said she was
acting pretty silly.
Total Demerits for Day 1

We'll be enrolling Mom Obedience class next week.

THIS IS NO APRIL FOOL'S JOKE........

MY EYES GLAZED OVER AND EVERYTHING BECAME
A LITTLE FUZZY LAST NIGHT WHEN MOM SAID SHE 


WAS NEVER GOING TO WORK AGAIN

MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS WHO IN THE WORLD WILL BUY MY FOOD  FOR HER WELL BEING!! 
BUT THEN SHE EXPLAINED THE MEANING OF

R E T I R E D

AND ALL WAS RIGHT IN MADI-LAND.
 DAD, DID YOU KNOW MOM WILL BE WITH US 24/7/365
 DOESN'T THAT SOUND LIKE FUN DAD? 
DAD SAID, "LIFE AS HE AND I HAVE KNOWN FOR THE LAST 9 YEARS HAS FOREVER CHANGED".
MOL,
DAD IS SO DRAMATIC.
I BETTER GO CHECK ON MOM.  SHE IS BEING KIND OF QUIET.  SHE MIGHT NEED MY HELP.
TTFN,
MADI

In case you are wondering why there is a picture of the top of my head.....well the spot right between my ears IS MOM'S absolute

REWIND: PICTURES FOR MONDAY'S POST

3
Mom still doesn't know what happened to the pictures on yesterday's post.  The only thing she did differently was to put captions on the pictures rather than put the words under the picture.
It was not her intent to post words yesterday and pictures today. MOL/LOL
But just for the heck of it....here are the pictures that were supposed to be on Monday's post.

If you did not see yesterday's words, click here

Mom mainly wanted to show everyone what a good Snoopervisor I am when she is cooking
AND
I stay out of her way too. 
Again we apologize for the BOOGER BLOGGER'S goof yesterday.








As always, we thank each and every one of you for visiting us each day.
Madi and the perplexed Mom

SNOOPERVISING MOM'S COOKING


4
Mom is a darn good cook but she can get off track.  This is one of my prime snoopervising spots. 

PS Today (Sunday) I cannot see any of my pictures...hopefully they are here and Blogger is just being ornery!!  Mom

WE ARE VERY SORRY ABOUT THE LACK OF PICTURES!!
I'LL TRY TO POST THIS AGAIN LATER THIS WEEK!!


What is Mom cooking tonight?

mmmmmmmm it smells very good

Maybe some splashed up here.

Hey Mom where are you?  I think you skillet needs attention.

Ahhhhh now that I see the pasta box. She CAN boil water
w/o my snoopervision.
...I know Mom is cooking her famous Marinara with lean hamburger.

Bottoms up my work is done. I've been feed so
off for a nap.  Mom can eat w/o my snoopervising.

Dad says Mom's marinara is the best he has ever had.
Did I mention my Dad is a very SMART man? MOL

Here it is plated and ready for the table.
Well done Mom

Numbers, JACK's BOOK, BOXES AND PLATES

NUMBERS
In answer to all the questions about the peep's
sleep number, YES they really do sleep @ 90.
As for the waving motion, they don't sleep with that function on!!
FYI: they sleep very comfortably and have had less back trouble.

BOOK
Finally, our book review of Jack's Book

Have you read an excellent book lately? 
Mom and I have. In fact, Mom re-read it.
Her favorite pages are 1 through 157.
Lo and behold she missed a few things the first time.  LOL
I, Madi, on the other have sniffed and re-sniffed it. 
My favorite page is 67.
If you haven't read it, click on the link below to find out how to 
get your very own copy in two shakes of a cat's tail.
