TODAY'S WORD IS

R O C K 

Rock is defined as a mass of stone

This picture surely qualifies as a mass of 
Stone


Picture taken at Stone Mountain State Park In North Carolina.

THIS 
IS MY PLAY MAT


THAT
I RARELY PLAY WITH, IT HAS FEATHERS, MICE AND SQUIGGLY THINGS ATTACHED TO THE
CORNERS 
BUT I LIKE SITTING ON IT BECAUSE I LIKE
THE DIFFERENT FABRICS.

Freaky Friday x 100

I NEED BAIL MONEY
SERIOUSLY!!!
The peeps had an annual checkup on the furnace on
Tuesday...The furnace was fine.......BUTT it
appears it is time for duct work to be cleaned.  Last time it was done was BM (before me/Madi).  A gigantic octopus
will come to our house between 10 am and Noon today.  It has a gazillion sucky things which will put over all the air vents in the house to suck out the dust then  the ducts will be sanitized.  NORMALLY  when there is stuff going on, I'm sequestered in one room.  BUT this thing will be in EVERY room...and we think the front door will have to be open too.    Mom has a large
large kennel* thingie to put me in so I'm safe.  I will have my
litter box, food, water and a blankie...it looks like a jail
but I will be safe!! Mom will be near by and she is
going to cover the thingie* with a sheet so I can't see it
but I will hear it.  WE are hoping it isn't as scary as we think. 
Of course there will be pictures.  So we might be 
MIA part of the morning tomorrow.
HUGS MADI

TAKING INVENTORY

 MY PEEPS SHARE SPACE IN THIS AMOIRE  (that is mom speak for chest with drawers)
Recently she was moving stuff so of course I 
H E L P E D!!

 I spied a gazillion cozy socks in Dad's drawer.


Then I politely asked for help getting to Dad's golf
shirt drawer...I really like his orange shirt.
 Mom got a tad nervous when she saw me
doing some mathematical calculations here.
She was purrty sure I was about to jump up
to the top of the sweater pile.
Unfortunately my plan was nipped in the bud the doors were shut

Tuesday FISHING, APPLES AND JAM

Last Week while the peeps were away
I attended the Cat Scout Fishing Rodeo
with my Guy Raz....OMCs I caught a big one


 believe it or not this City girl won the biggest
fish award!!! Jumpin' Goldfish!!

Afterwards Raz and I took a ride on a flying fish

 All the while, the peeps were mucking around in the
mud on Carter's Mountain in Virginia looking for apples....
Crazy if you ask me we have Apples at our grocery stores and there is no mud.
 I must admit the lovely aromas coming from the oven while
this apple pie was baking were wonderful. The peeps
selected a few apples from all the bins.
Mom normally uses Granny Smith but this time she used several different applies.  The pie was extra yummy.


 Mom loved the creative names of the JAMS 
B(lackberry) E(lderberry) A(pple) R(ed raspberry)

T(angerine) O(range) E(lderberry) Jam
Mom especially cackle at this because toe jam often 
means the gunk between your toes

F(ig) R(ed raspberry) O(range) G(rapes)
We can't see the labels clearly so the above is a guess. But whatever the ingredients is is the
BEST SELLER!

Sunday Scents and Sights

 They are back.....I expressed my
displeasure by greeting them from atop the 
table.
(Mom says to tell you the new chairs closest to the window are getting too much sun...so she has to 
keep them covered until they get blinds.  Instructions said to keep out of direct sun)

 Actually I fibbed just a little I did greet 
them with open paws at the front door...then I jumped on the table...after I gave mom a sniff

She came home smelling like MacGyver
the Cairn Terrier from Virginia.
All she could talk about was how he followed 
her all over and slept in their room and yada yada yada....and how he would sit by her on the couch ..
frankly all the talk gave me a migraine.
MOL MOL MOL
 They were able to leave Gyvie long enough to visit Monticello, home of Thomas Jefferson.
On Friday October 10
Monticello is located in Charlottesville, VA
It is currently undergoing a face lift
Mr. Jefferson was the author of the Declaration of Independence and third President of the United States and founder of the University of Virginia

Mom has a few more pictures she'll share...
however, much to Mom's dismay...it started raining shortly after they arrived so outside photos were limited and none are allowed inside. THE weather forecast WAS WRONG. It was wet, cooooool and they didn't have umbrellas. 
Their tour guide told them on October 10, 1979
there was 2' of snow at Monticello. So rain was the lesser of two evils.
