Sunday Scents and Sights

 They are back.....I expressed my
displeasure by greeting them from atop the 
(Mom says to tell you the new chairs closest to the window are getting too much 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.
 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 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.


  1. Bummer for your peeps! BUTT...we think it's divine justice for abandoning the Diva.

  2. Smellin' like another dog....scandalous.

    Monticello is a very interesting place (for peeps). Old Tom was quite an innovator.

  3. My human has always wanted to visit Monticello! I wonder if they allow cats... probably not.

  4. Oh dear Madi, looks like home had a nice trip WITHOUT YOU.
    Oh I know all about that.
    Toodle pip!
    Bertie (fellow sufferer).

  5. Well, I'm used to dat terrierist smell around here - McGyver looks like a darker vershun of our westies.

  6. Love the photo of you sun puddle surfing
    What is it with these peeps going on holidays without us, outrageous !
    Loves and licky kisses

  7. Looking very content there Madi and we so agree they have too many holidays these humans. Have a serene and easy Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. might i say, you look FINE laying in the table sunshine and if mom puts up blinds, that will ruin your spa table....welcome home to your peeps and sorry it rained on their visit. looking at mr Jefferson, i am trying to picture Bob dressed like that ... i have been off the computer and still am due to hurting knee but had to see how the trip went.

  9. Oh I bet the terrier is related with Oz! probably a cousin? I'm glad your parents haven't visited Monticello in 1979... imagine all that snow! In October.... wow! How bad that your Mom couldn't take photos inside the you know why that isn't allowed? Have a great sunday on the table :o)

  10. Nice table shot Madi! You mean your Mom was unfaithful to you with a woofie? EEEEK! My Mom and Dad have been to Monticello as Charlottesville is NOT far from Warrenton where we live. It's a nice spot to visit but NOT in the rain without an umbrella!!!!!

    Hugs, Sammy

  11. Oh that is nice to have a good doggie friend and what a cute dog too. So sorry it rained on you. But at least you got away for a little while. You all have a great day. Madi, tell Mom that email is coming from us.

  12. Such a beautiful area to visit. T. Jefferson is one of my favorite historical figures. You shared some great photos...
    And Madi? You're always a welcome purrrrfect, thing, you!!!

  13. Well at least the homecoming went off with out a hitch pretty Madi!

  14. OMC OMC they ABANDONED you... AND came home reeking of McGyver? THAT is TOO MUCH fur any Diva to endure.
    OMD they will need to Cover Your WINDOW??? How will you watch your Birdies???
    Too bad about the RAIN... Our mom says that Monticello is a fabulous place. She thinks Mr.Jefferson was BRILLIANT... He found a way to make exact copies of the thingys he wrote... with a thingy that he Invented... PLUS he invented the dumb waiter... AND Wrote the Declaration of Independence. BRILLIANT...

  15. No umbrellas?? Oh, that can be very bad! Glad they had a good get-away though. Now of course the bigger question is why they neglected you to pay attention to a doggie?

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  16. Amazing the guide remembered 1979 there was snow! Wow just typing 1979 makes it seems so so long ago. Madi it looks like you have found a new sun spot! Our DR table is one of our prime time snoozey sun spots. Mom gave up and put many layers of comfortable blankets so we lie there in comfort.

  17. They cheated on you with a dog?? Oh you poor thing xx

  18. We are sorry dog smell was brought in and the weather report was wrong!

  19. We're glad they're home safe and sound....too bad about the woofie smells though :(

  20. We had a beautiful day yesterday but a rainy week last week. Today is just dreary and cold. Tomorrow - more rain!!! Needless to say, it has been a very dull day here:(

    Mom loves visiting the DC and VA areas, so much history to see.

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  21. So glad your pawrents are home safe and sound Miss Madi! Sorry they got rained on though :( Have a wonderful Easy together!

  22. Wow Madi, did you talk to the weather kitties and get it to rain on your pawrents???
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  23. We think it was good you kind of gave your pawrents the cold shoulder when they got home. Looks like they had fun though.

  24. I have always wanted to go to Monticello-someday.

  25. We're glad you laid on the table, Madi. Your mom deserved that after spending all that time with a D-O-G. ;)

  26. You really showed your mom, Madi! How dare she leave you… and fraternize with a woofie too?! Geez louise. It looks like she had a nice trip though!

  27. I'm glad you took over the table since they kept moving your tree! We're looking forward to the pictures of your mom's trip!

  28. Seriously, the peeps were hanging out with D-O-G-S again?

    Despite the rain, we sure hope they had a pawsome time!

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  29. No umbrellas???? How did your Moms keep her furs dry??!! OMD, Ma would die if she had to stand in the rain and gets her wavy furs and kinky!! the HORRORS!!!
    Okays, anyhu, I can't believes your Moms cheated on you??!!!! OMC, I thinks you should demand like 87 extra cans of Friskies!! And some nip. Always some nip. The good kind too. Not that cheap stuffs they sell in the big box stores. Ya know, the kind they sell...privately....BOL!!!! omd, I kill myself!
    Wells, it sure looks like they had a most FABulous time!!! Very! bol!! OMD, I better goes...too many margaritas...

  30. Just tell her that you don't wanna hear about the dog Madi. Now treats and you'll talk,

  31. Oooh, a historical LOVES those!
    Wally & Sammy
