TUESDAY TALE

SUBTITLE:
THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE FUNNY

THE GOOD
As you might recall, I gave mom some time off for good behavior last weekend.  They went to see my human sis and BIL and Harley cat. (FYI:  BIL is doing fabulously, driving, working full time and feeling good) . This makes us all happy.

I spent my time sleeping and watching from my upper chambers for them to return



NO PICTURES BUT A MOST EXCITING HAPPENING

Sunday Morning THE PEEPS WALKED ON THE BEACH FOR ABOUT AN HOUR. THE ENTIRE Time THEY WERE WALKING THEY SAW THREE DOLPHIN pods!  Probably a total of 30 dolphins all together.  The first pod was the most entertaining DAD estimated the closest ones were 20 to 30 yards from shore.   They jumped and played one spun in the air exposing his gorgeous white tummy.  Mom said she and Dad were like toddlers wide eyed and squealing.  Never in all their years have they seen that many dolphins in the ocean at one time. Mom had the camera but she said their was no way she could have captured the show. She said she took pictures with her mind's eye, 

 THE BAD

My DAD is a traitor seems Harley loves him...
 and evidently Dad has an affection for Harley cause he rubbed him into a trance.  There will be demerits for treason!!
First one was on Monday I DID NOT help Dad Shower!!

 THE FUNNY
Mom and Dad took a walk on the beach where 
they met up with Granddaddy Long legs fishing 

AND
OMCs a big eyed critter on the half shell.
MOL MOL  mom thinks she is so funny but she is in trouble too
'cause she had Essence of Harley all over her.
Actually a wave just washed over the shell leaving 
bubbles on it and lo and behold Mom mom just had to snap it.
 Last but surely not least this crazy  warning sign.
Mom said she about fell out of the car when she saw it.
Never in all her years has she ever seen an official 
Duck and baby crossing sign.  There were two on this road
at Atlantic Beach, NC
I just hope and purr the mama duck doesn't try to cross anywhere 
else.

  5. That googly eyed half shell critter made Mommy laugh!

    Won't it be great if a Mama Duck and her babies were actually next to that sign, waiting to cross? :)

  6. We have duck signs.....we have lots of ducks, too.

    SHE would have been over the moon to see those dolphins. SHE'd be squealing, too.

    keep up the cold shoulder with dad. He should NOT be seeing other cats.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

  8. That's great news about BIL! Seeing the dolphins must have been wonderful, and we love that sign. The head peep used to see signs like that where she grew up, but hasn't seen them in years. Good to know they're still in use!

  9. Seeing that many dolphins must have been pretty amazing and that shell is very funny!! VERY BAD about the cheating on you though......they defiantly will have to get demerits for that. Mom says there are signs like that around here too.

  14. Uh Oh, the peeps are busted! Harley scents all over them! But it's his fault, Madi, that he is so affectionate, he had to cuddle with his Grand peeps! :) Love the happy face in the shell pic and I would have loved to been there for the Dolphins dancing! What a treat! You must have been a good Guard Cat while they were away! LOL
    Hugs and nose taps,

  16. That shell is too funny! Sounds like lovely beach time. I think you have a beautiful view from your upper chambers Madi!

  17. Oh Madi, no worries about Harley - Mom and Dad missed you so much that Harley was just there to comfort them. Mom says a walk on the beach sounds delightful - she really misses the East Coast and all the great beaches.

  25. So, dear one, you had the run of the house [errrrr, um diva castle] while ma and pa were away? Lucky you...Tahoe and Winston had to go to the catery. And they so wanted to stay home.

    Now that creepy eyed-critter on the half shell....scary!!!

  26. That shell with eyes is funny! There is a nature reserve at the other end of the village from us and they have those duck signs there. It must have been lovely to watch the dolphins.

  27. Now Madi, Harley was just soaking up a little attention from your mom and dad since he doesn't see them often. But on the other paw it doesn't hurt to remind the peeps not to get too friendly with other critters.

    The dolphins would have been exciting to see. Our mama says she would probably have forgotten she even had her camera. We love the little shell with eyes.
