The Diva and the Towel Tale

Adapted loosely from the Princess and the Pea

Let me first set the scene.  Every Saturday Mom changes 
the linens and it is my job to inspect the bed.  Sometimes I help from start to finish and sometimes I arrive just as she is finishing.


Mom left the pillows all messy on the bed.  I cannot 
nap under these circumstances.

 Looks like it is up to me to get things in order
 I'll make a few biscuits on this pillow on the way to my
special SPOT

WHOA WHAT THE HECK IS UP MY CLEAN
TOWEL IS NOT IN MY SPECIAL SPOT
DEMERITS ARE IN ORDER.


MAYBE SHE LEFT IT BEHIND THIS PILLOW
NOPE
MOOOOOOOOOOOOM  IT IS NAP TIME
I WANT MY TOWEL IN MY SPOT PRONTO

 OK THIS IS MORE LIKE IT...YOU KNOW MY MAYORAL
TUSH CANNOT NAP WITHOUT THE PROPER AMOUNT OF
SOFTNESS THE TOWEL MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE.

Note from Mom:  This is the exact sequence of pictures
taken last Saturday.  Madi was on her way to nap only to 
find her towel missing.  She went back to the bedside table
let out a big MEOW.
As soon as I put the towel down, she settled down for a long winter's nap.

Madi is all about the destination not the journey.

UPDATE ON G-PA
The swelling in his nose has gone down considerably.
thus far he just has one black eye.
The swelling in his had is some better but at least it doesn't hurt
The cast is bothersome when he sleeps but hopefully he will adjust.
thanks for all your kind words after his accident.

******* REMINDER

  5. Madi, just what's going on there. 'The Help' is getting very sloppy. It's not like you were asking for something new....no, just the usual. Something will have to be done.

  17. Good help is SO hard to find. SIGH! I have to help Momma fix the bed every morning too. It's nothing but work work work!

  18. poor grand pa peep... all this at his age just has to be traumatic for him and all of you.
    pets are so demanding. Baby does this to. she has a pink baby blanket that i bought 11 years ago when we got her and named her baby. if the blanket is not spread out flat on top of her pillow, she sits and stares at it waiting for us to spread it out and smooth it with our hand. she will not lay on it until we do this. Jake doesn't do this at all, he just wants to be close to his daddy. baby is as picky as you are Madi
