1. Bertie,  my Director of the Science of Tail Wagging,

and his assistant need help designing  a ‘hard hat’ for Bertie to wear on their forthcoming geological field trip to the Isle of Skye.
Below is a note from his Assistant

I am  going to ask folks to post suggested designs (using everyday materials) on their blogs and/or leave a comment on
click below link for details.
If any of the ideas are practical, I shall try to make the hat for Bertie and will post photos of him wearing it (giving due credit to the designer) when we go to Skye at the end of the month.

3. Mom asked my permission to take
a part time job.
 I said ok/fine (in one breath followed by a huff) as long as my service doesn't suffer
I sat atop the table

She takes pictures of me from outside

 While I watch her working in
our mushroom farm.... 

Oh my cats we cannot believer how many
of these beauties have sprouted.
It is easy work...she ohhhsss and ahhhs and 
snaps pictures of them and me.

Last but not at all least as of about 3pm
Wednesday...our blog came out of the black hole it fell in on Monday and is now working fine.


  1. We think Bertie should use an upside down enamel bowl. Then he could use it for water and food, as well.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    Love the mushies.....they aren't poisonous are they?

  2. Glad your blog is working now Madi, ours seems better too. Are those REAL mushrooms they seem to perfect and delicate, like ornaments - amazing. Happy World Cat day - you should get a pressie for that, he he.
    How about a baking bowl for Bertie?

  3. Glad you are out of that black hole Madi and all is back to normal. Have a happy world cat day and have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. The mushrooms are lovely! We can't believe how nice they look. The only ones we've grown are the ugly ones that pop up after lots of rain.

    Have a happy Thursday and Happy World Cat Day, Madi. Nosebumpies and whisker kisses from your bestest mancat, Prancer Pie.

  5. OMD can you eat those mushrooms? We grew some in a box, one was the size of a house and we only had a couple of tiddlers. Glad your out of the black hole :) xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  6. Good to hear you are out of the dark reaches of the interwebs. That is a scary place to be.

  7. I'm so happy to read that you two are once again 'back in business' of blogging!!! I kinda thought it was just a glitch and would clear up.

    Oh happy day.

  8. Sure glad your blog came out of that black hole. That makes us happy. Love your outside inside pictures and those mushrooms are looking great. Have yourselves a great day.

  9. I am trying not to be jealous over that second job. those are AMAZING mushrooms.. i want some... love that second photo of you that Mom took from outside. all that glitter and glam becomes you Mayor Madi.. can't wait to see what hat design the two of you are working on and welcome back from the "dark hole"... glad you mae it back.

  10. A hat huh? Oh that mushroom farm is something. They are coming in very nice
    Benny & Lily

  11. Wow...if those mushrooms get any bigger, you can use them for a hat...BOL

    Glad you found your way out of the hole!

  12. I sure am glad your blog is okay! Happy World Cat Day pretty Madi!

  13. WE are THRILLED that you are BACK from the BLACK HOLE... We went in it fur about 87 mins. last night.. SCARY and FURStrating fur SURE.

    OMD a HARD HEADED HAT fur Bertie... we will """PUT on our THINKING CAPS""" and see what we can come up with.

  14. Happy World Cat day to you Miss Madi. Our mom wishes that daddy would let her have one and we would love to have another fur sibling to play with.

    Millie & Walter

  15. Those black holes can be quite a nuisance.

  16. Whew, so good to know you have returned from the black hole!!! Maybe Bertie could borrow a knight's helmet to wear. Thunder used to have one but MOm thinks the little bipeds may have borrowed it. Hope he has a lot of fun on the Isle of Skye.

    We get those mushrooms here too with all the rain we have had. Mom is always running around pulling them up so SomePup doesn't eat them (just in case they are the poisonous ones.)

  17. Happy World Cat Day! I just hope my kitty siblings don't find out about it. They're bad enough on REGULAR days!

  18. Happy World Cat Day, Madi!

    You do such a good job posing for Mom's camera.

    We are in the process of taking turns whipping our mama with wet noodles 'cause she forgots all about it. Nots to worry, no mama was injured during the process.

    That is some mushroom garden. Do you have little elves living underneath?

    We are glad your blogging woes are over but last night mama's internet connection got so slow she couldn't get comments to stick. Catching up now.

  27. So glad your blog is working again Madi...Momz sent an idea to Bertie...can't wait to see the winning desing...does your mom use those shrooms for eating? have you ever tried them?

  28. Happy World Cat Day to you Madi. Those mushrooms look very tasty.

  29. We are glad things are working smoother for you blog Madi. It would be terrible to lose access. Mom says there are too many memories to lose. She is going to do what you've done and get it all printed.

  30. Oh, Ma thinks those mushrooms are FABulous!!! They looks like they are chartreuse! Very cool!! Your Moms cracks me up ~ she just LOVES takin' your pic..I hopes your gettin some good pay for all your work!! Maybe some nice boxes, or a new (working) water fountain!!
