MAYORESS MADI SWEARIN' IN


PART I: GETTING DRESSED
PUDDLES MY bossy CampPAIN manager
was barking orders left and right  she needed a breath mint too, I smelled beer and Cheetos on her breath
about how I needed to get myself
SPIT POLISHED AND SHINY for the day's events

Being an obedient kitty I got busy grooming
 Thank goodness Molly the Wally took care of the
shiny part by sending me this lovely tiara
 I had a photo session for  official Mayoress Portrait taken

I had plans to wear a formal gown but Puddles rolled her 
eyes and gave me a stink eye look and
said girlfriend don't covers your superior soft furs 
with clothes....GO NEKKED.
I was ok with going nekked but I insisted on wearing 
my kitten heels

 That too met with disapproval from Puddles
who is vertically challenged.

Puddles is insecure around tall Kittehs!!

PART II: Swearin' In by 
GOOSE the Chaplain of Blogville

 OH my Dogs I actually got 'goose' bumps when 
my pal Goose arrived looking so handsome  in his cleric collar

 I could not take my eyes off  him.
I finally regained my composure and Mom and I 
listened carefully to Goose
Goose:  Madi on this most special day it is my pleasure to officiate your swearin' in ceremony (Puddles if you say one more swear word Sarge, Top Cop of Blogville will gladly escort you to
his newly renovated jail.  We all knew you would be the first occupant)

Goose:  Madi let's get back on track.  Not only are you our new Mayor but you are also the first female and feline Mayor.  In your new position do you promise to run blogville under the established rules set by Mayor Frankie, do you promise to be fair, unbiased in all your activities and most of all do you promise uphold THE unlimited foodables, toys, snacks, undisturbed naps to all 4 leggers and severely restrict their peeps from changing these rules?
Madi: Goose thank you for your excellent officiating today!! I'll make my answer short and sweet 
YES I DO
Goose:  Now outgoing Mayor Frankie will present Mayoress Madi with the Key to blogville.
 OMDs Mayor Frankie you look just like 
JAMES BOND...BUT YOU BETTER ORDER YOU 
BEER STIRRED AND SHAKEN OR YOU'LL BE SORRY
Frankie:  It is with great honor I hand over my most prized possession the Key to Blogville to you our next Mayoress
I would like to say a few words on this auspicious occasion.........

Madi: Frankie hand me that key now...you have been talking for 2 years now it is my turn.

PART III:  CLOSING ENTERTAINMENT
DECCY, my Director of Music, will accompany me on the piano
as I sing.....Hail to the Diva, Mayoress Cougar Khat!! MOL
We think Deccy's Mum for this excellent Photo I can hardly believe I am in the same room as Deccy. BTW DECCY
I had a talk w/KC she promises to give you ample warning
before jumping on your back.
Deccy and I are thinking of taking our show on the road
I'll be Madi Fitzgerald and he will be Deccy Peterson

Part IV: My escort for the festivities arrives
May I present the most handsome and dapper Mr. SideBites.
Next to ham...men in Bowties are my weakness
MR. SIDEBITES

I call him 'Bites'.  Bites told me he has a big surprise he will be taking me to the festivities in the new Blogville Police Helicopter

His sister Susie will be attending with us and she has graciously
agreed to be my lady in waiting for the evening.  
Susie
Ranger the newest Police Officer in Training  and Susie's escort

Once we land at the site of the festivities Bites will be driving us around in the official Blogville squad car.

{THIS MOMENT} SEE BEAUTIFUL

Reminder tomorrow, January 12, is my
swearin' in ceremony it will be beautiful too!!
*******************

 Mom and I thank Sugar for hosting


Our submission for this month's {This Moment} See Beautiful 
doesn't really have a title but if it did it would be

LOVING HANDS/PAWS

MOM AND I OFTEN HOLD PAWS/HANDS.
HER HANDS DO SO MANY BEAUTIFUL THINGS FOR ME LIKE MASSAGES, BRUSHING, GENTLY PETTING MY HEAD, RUBBING MY PINK NOSE
AND MOST OF ALL THEY FIX MY FOODABLES AND
GIVE ME FRESH WATER.


MOM SAYS MY PAWS ARE BEAUTIFUL SHE LOVES HOW SOFT THE PADS ARE AND SHE ESPECIALLY LOVES THAT THEY ARE ALTERNATING BLACK AND PINK.
ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO DO WHEN MOM CATCHES ME NAPPING IS TO EXTEND ONE PAW...SHE ALWAYS GENTLY HOLDS IT SAY 
'REACH OUT AND TOUCH SOMEONE'.
She told me that was a slogan for a phone company a long time ago but now it is our slogan.
Mom and I try to enjoy each and every Moment and See Beautiful always.
Hugs Madi and Mom

MOM IS*

MOM AND I LOVE HER iPAD we play WWF every morning.


Last summer my most talented brother in law,
MR. G, MADE MOM A STYLUS TO USE WITH HER iPad.  It is quite handy, the thing-a-ma-jig on the left fits into the earphone port for safe keeping.
and black rubber tip keeps Mom from poking a hole in the screen, (mom is *heavy handed), which everyone in the family knows.  When Mr. G 
gave it to her he told her the rubber tip could be replace if need be but to remember she did not 
NEED to press hard.
Well I'm here to tell you since Mom rec'd the stylus she has had to have 2 retreads on the rubber tip. 
MOL MOL MOL


Below is a picture of the piece of equipment Mr. 
G uses to retread Mom's stylus.  He had to bring it with him at Christmas.
He wised up this time he gave her a rubber tip with that can be screwed on and off and an extra tip.
We are taking bets on how long retread #3 will last.
MOL MOL MOL
Oh and my Sis says you should never let Mom wash your furs 'cause she will rub your head so hard you will not have any furs left.

UPDATES ON BIRTHDAY AND G-PA

MOM SENDS A TON OF THANK YOUS FOR ALL THE LOVELY BIRTHDAY WISHES YESTERDAY...
TO SAY MOM HAD A COLORFUL BIRTHDAY WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT
SHE BOUGHT SOME NEW WALKING SHOES
WITH DAY GLOW GREEN ALL OVER THEM.
 THE WERE SO BRIGHT I HAD TO HIDE MY EYES.  MOM LOVES VIBRANT COLORS
DAD SAID HE MIGHT WALK A FEW FEET BEHIND HER AT THE MALL IN THE MORNING. MOL


HER ICE CREAM CAKE WAS DECORATED RED WHICH IS HER FAVORITE COLOR


MOM MIGHT BE OLDER THAN DIRT BUT HER REFLEXES ARE FASTER THAN GREASED LIGHTNING.  IF I HAD THOUGHT JUST STICK MY TONGUE OUT INSTEAD OF SNIFFING I WOULD HAVE HAD LICK
OF THE CAKE!
******************
Yesterday at 9:30 am they took the stomach tube out of G-pa.  They  started him on a liquid diet of jello, broth, juice and coffee which he will have for 3 meals.  If all goes well, he will be on a soft diet tomorrow. THIS was his 3rd major obstruction in 4 years...we are hoping he will realizes he has to CUT some things he likes out of his diet...such as
French baguettes...which are hard as rocks and hard to digest.
We both thank you for all your purrs and concerns and we'll keep you posted.
Hugs Madi and Mom
