THURSDAY THINGS


You would think after 13 years of living with a crazy woman I 
would learn to never leave her alone for too long.
Last Saturday I took a nap.  When I went kitchen I noticed
this crazy thing on the window shade....


I MOL'd... Mom come quick there is an alien on the shade.
As I watched with trepidation (there she goes with the $5.00 words), she slowly raised the shade 


Lo and behold it was the shadow of the new window mounted
hummingbird feeder.  From April until late September
mom is 100% about the comfort and care of the Ruby-throated
hummingbirds.  She has one hanging feeder but wanted
another.  Years ago she had a window mounted one but the ants found it.  The clear plastic stays mounted to the window, the outer edge of it has an ant moat to keep them from getting to the sugar water.  The sugar water container lifts out making it 
easy to clean and add fresh water.

Sometimes dad and I think she loves the hummers more than us!?

Work Wednesday

My buddy Sarge is a hard working K9...
so he decided to start a series called Work Wednesday.
I had no idea how much work goes on around me!!
Boy Sarge this new 'day' of yours has opened my eyes!!

Last Friday our neighbors had 87 a bunch of giant pines
removed from their front yard...
Thankfully most of the equipment was across the street
so I was able to snoopervise 

the men at work
 they get an A+ for a job well done and for 

not hitting our mailbox post.  What you cannot see below
is a bobCAT with a mouth full of limbs turning near our mailbox

LAST AND BY NO MEANS LEAST MOM DID A VERY HAPPY HUMMINGBIRD ARRIVAL DAY DANCE ON 4/9/15. THE LITTLE JEWELS ARRIVED EXACTLY THE SAME DAY THIS YEAR AS LAST AND THEY WERE HUNGRY
THOSE LITTLE JEWELS WORK VERY HARD  
 THEY JUST FLEW IN FROM WAY DOWN SOUTH
MOM IS ALL EXCITED ABOUT FEEDING THEM THIS YEAR
WE'VE ALREADY SPOTTED 3.  
SHE IS TRYING TO FIND ANOTHER PURRFECT SPOT TO SET UP 
ANOTHER FEEDER

MOM WILL BE WORKING REALLY HARD ALL SUMMER
TO KEEP THEM FED TOO!!

TUESDAY TALE OF Real Estate


Friends this morning I'm here to tell you a tale
of Real Estate  Once upon at time, many many moons ago, mom bought and ASSEMBLED
(boy was that a sight, no pictures 'cause it took both hands and a few HBO words) this hut for me.
I repaid her by going in it a few times.
Then it was moved to a corner in the family room.
During a recent insane moment of spring cleaning,
mom vacuumed off the cob webs,threw
in a few toys and
 moved it beside my food and water
and OMCs I'm using it again!!
You know I'm a senior kitty, so it is nice to have things near.  
Real estate is all about: 
location location location
All things considered, I'm very happy with the 
new arrangements.
Now if I could just convince her to move my litter box to Madi's Space!!.
She says my litter box will remain where it is...upstairs!!
