My Mind's Eye

Remember your Angels are Watching

Wednesday, August 13, 2014


Day Two started  with all kinds of banging, knocking and I 

don't know what all.  On the chance that it was a cat burglar,

I took it upon myself to guard Mom's pocketbook

The peeps were certainly glad to get rid of all

the big chunks of concrete jungle.  We hope and purr the 

sun stays out so we don't have a big mud hole.

 All the knocking, and banging and sawing and what all
was coming from this guy.  He is called a framer.  He sets
up the wood frames where the concrete will be poured
I hollered to him that it was Safety week and to be sure to be careful with the saw and hammer.
 The driveway 
 and sidewalk are all framed and ready for the cement
truck to arrive.  I can hardly wait to measure the noise level
when that monster comes.
 Mom gave me the all clear so I finally decided to come
half way down the stairs.

  1. We don't blame you a bit for only coming halfway down the stairs! What a huge job! You and the peeps will have earned yourselves some quiet time after this.
    Happy Safety Week and Happy Wednesday!
    XOXO from your besties at Angel Prancer Pie.

  2. We are glad you and your peeps finally got a break from all that noise. Do you have a quiet place to hide when that giant cement mixer comes? We would invite you to come over and stay with us for awhile but with all the kittens it's pretty noisy here too. MOL!

    Cindi Lou & The Kitty Krew
    Georgia, Adam and Gloria
    Vincent and Marky

  3. I'd be hidin when dat loud cement mixer shows up.

  4. We hope Mr Sun continues to shine brightly at your place, Madi!

  5. Oh Madi its been so nice here ... Mr. Sunshine will be there soon. We are following the blogville safety week. Happy Wednesday. Golden Woofs

  6. Now, not to jinx you or anything, but this is about the time a real frog-chokin' rain happens....just sayin'.

  7. LOL we'd only venture down the stairs a bit too with all that noise. That or we'd be barking our head off. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. That looks like it would be really noisy. We hope the rain holds off so that you have a beautiful driveway the next time you post!

  9. Oh Madi, we are so glad that you are watching out that those people putting in your driveway so that they remember to stay safe. That is so important. We have our paws crossed that it stays dry up there.Looks like it is going to do just that. Take care.

  10. Yap, good thing you are keeping an eye on Bob the Cat's staff. Glad they cleaned up Bob's concrete mess in the driveway.

  11. i am waiting with bated breath to see the concrete truck dumping concrete. Keep your assistant on her toes and ready for the SHOT. it is not SAFE to ride or sit beside a cement truck... they can turn over on your car. my mother and I knew that our whole life and would howl if a driver pulled up beside or close behind. and then... and then..... we saw it on the news, one turned on top of a car right here in Florida.. so Mayor Madi watch out for that truck

  12. Mayoress Diva Cougar Cat Madi you did a fabulous job of pawtecting your mom's purse from the FRAMER GUY... We were surprised to see that the FRAMER was a TWO LEGGER... We had Always thought that it was SQUIRRELS who FRAMED us fur EVERYTHINGY. OMD the Noise must have been Terrifying. We would not have liked it one bit. Stay SAFE.

  13. I'm glad you had a real framer and not my dad, Madi. Imagine my dad and a saw and a hammer, uhoh! I can't wait to see the truck with the cement, it has something from ice cream when the cement comes out lol

  14. Good job warning that worker, Madi.

    Mom says she is happy to see that she isn't the only one who still has a pocketbook, and not just a purse or handbag:)

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  15. OMD, your pawrents are lucky to have you around to snoopervise and keep them safe! I can't wait to see what happens when the cement truck arrives!

  16. Looks like the Framer listened to you, Madi, on safety!
    He got everything nice and prepped for the cement truck...and more noise!
    Hugs and nose taps,
    Kathy and Molly

  17. Oh Madi we just found out they are going to be putting a new roof on our house, banging and hammering and us is going to be a crazy week.

  18. I hope the sun stays out for you! I bet the outcome will be so worth the noise. :)
    We have been enjoying the weather, we've turned off the air for about three days. :)

  19. Your pawrents are lucky to have you on guard at all times. We can't wait to see the cement truck stuffs.

  20. Mom, that is very brave of you to protect Mom's pocketbook.

    Looks like ya'll will have a new driveway and sidewalk soon

  21. You sure take good care of your parents!!! You're a pawsome guard cat!!!!
