Mom's been R E T I R E D a week

I had no clue that R E T I R E M E N T
meant MOM would be here under my paws all day long! That I would not get a moments rest and oh did I mention all the noise she makes?  Had I known, I would have insisted she continue to bring home the bacon. 

Well I've been walking around the house looking for something for her to do..... 

 to get her out of my furs. I found a big box in the
kitchen. I bellowed politely Meow for Mom to come help me.
The box was full of styrofoam and plastic....... 
 and lo and behold look what we found in it....
a DeLonghi Espresso machine!!!

Y E S I said to myself just what I need to
keep the Mom out of my furs...she can become a
Barista.
That will keep her busy throughout the morning while I nap.
So just send in your fancy pants coffee order via the blog. I'll see that Mom has it ready pronto.  MOL

P.S.  The nice people Mom worked with for 25 years gave her this thing-a-ma-gig  as a retirement gift!!  She bought some petite little cups and saucers this week.  She and Dad have already enjoyed a delicious cup of espresso.

Thank you to all who have wished me a good retirement and inquired as to how it is going........
IT IS GOING FANTASTICALLY!!!

Now that I'm 9 Part II


If you missed Part I of Now that I'm 9 click here

On today's tour BEHIND The Tan Door we'll see some very
interesting things I've never seen Mom use tools* Mom says she uses.

MOM TOLD ME THIS IS HER SEWING CHEST.
HOWEVER, I THINK IT MAKES A PURRFECT
PLACE ON WHICH TO STRUT MY LADY CAT STUFF....


THIS IS MOM'S IRON.  I THINK SHE HAS FORGOTTEN HOW TO USE IT. MAYBE IF I FIND THE IRONING BOARD
SHE'LL USE IT MORE OFTEN.  DAD'S SHIRTS ARE 
LOOKING VERY WRINKLED. 

HEY DAD I FOUND THE IRONING BOARD MOM
NO LONGER HAS AN EXCUSE FOR NOT IRONING.


THIS PICTURE IS TO SHOW YOU THE SLANTED CEILINGS
IN THIS ROOM.  THEY MAKE IT VERY HARD TO CALCULATE THE EXACT FORCE I NEED FOR TAKE OFF AND LANDING.  THE FILE CABINET IS MY FINAL DESTINATION...THAT IS ONCE I DECIDE HOW TO LAND
ON IT WITHOUT GETTING A CONCUSSION.

TOUR BEHIND THE TAN DOOR
TO BE CONTINUED

EYDD*: WHY I DON'T GO OUT

*EVIL YELLOW DUST (OF THE) DEVIL
IS WHY I'M PURRFECTLY HAPPY SITTING ON MY BOX
INSIDE THE HOUSE.

 BEFORE SUMMER COMES POLLEN SEASON/SPRING
IT ARRIVED OVER THE WEEKEND. MOM WROTE MY NAME IN THE POLLEN ON THE SUNROOF OF HER CAR.
THIS IS A LIGHT COATING. BEFORE LONG IT WILL BE
SO THICK YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO TELL IT IS A WINDOW.
 THE CAR WILL BE COATED AS THICK AS THIS LEAF.  IF MOM AND DAD OPEN THE SUNROOF THEY ARE INSTANTLY SNEEZING
 THIS IS MOM'S TIRE COATED IN A LIGHT DUSTING OF 
 POLLEN
 THIS IS THE CULPRIT....PINE POLLEN
THE NEW PINE CONES SPROUT THESE PINE PODS
IN EARLY SPRING.  N.C. IS FULL OF PINE TREES AS IS OUR YARD AND EVERY TREE HAS 100s of these little devils
 THIS IS OUR FRONT PORCH KITTY..
HIS JOB IS TO RUN THE EYOTDD AWAY FROM OUR PORCH
BUT HE USUALLY FAILS!!!
THE POLLEN IS ALL OVER THE FRONT PORCH TOO.  THE BEST WAY TO GET RID OF IT IS WITH A HOSE EVERY DAY OR THEY WILL BRING IT IN THE HOUSE.  IF MOM SWEEPS IT SHE'LL BE SORRY. HOPEFULLY BY THE END OF APRIL IT WILL ALL BE GONE!!

ANNOUNCEMENT!!!
NOW THAT MOM IS RETIRED OUR BLOGGING
VISITS WILL BE OFF BY ABOUT 2 HOURS...SHE AND DAD
TAKE A POWER WALK EARLY IN THE MORNING
THEN RUN ANY ERRANDS...BUT DON'T GIVE UP ON US WE'LL BE BY SOMETIME DURING THE DAY.

'TWEETERS' no not that kind.....


Tweeters:  2 White Breasted Nuthatches 

Tweeter 1:  Good morning are you new to the 'hood?
Tweeter 2: Yes, I think I'm going to like it.
Tweeter 1: Oh you will there is always lots of seed, water
and shelter from predators.
Tweeter 2:  Really, I heard there was a wild Cat living here.
 Tweeter 1:  What??? Oh you mean Madi.....
don't worry about her she is a Diva, she never comes outside and she is always sleeping.



What those silly tweeters don't know is I have connections on the
OUTSIDE, insert evil MOL....and from this very spot I can see every move they make.
*********
I, Madi, apologize for Mom for not getting to visit everyone yesterday. She had a good excuse. One of her favorite authors,
Kristin Hannah was in our city for a reception, reading of her new book Night Roads and a signing. Mom had a picture made with her too but she won't post it. MOL
Mom spent 3 hours there but she came home with a big smile!!!
