Terrific Tuesday News!!

Dearest furiends and staff it is the mission of this itty bitty kitty blog to keep things
real and true...............so without further ado let me share something with you.
Over the last few weeks FOR some reason I am not jumping up on anything.
The peeps put me on this bed to do my subq treatments.
Afterwards I stay there unless interrupted by the invasion of the photo snapper.
 and then I jump down easy peasy.
I was having the same issues when trying to jump on my beloved LOVE seat.
Which is not high........so GUESS what TOGM did.....last Tuesday she bought me an


When I first saw it, I gave it my sniff of disAPPROVAL  and moved on.
You know what she did....she (wo)man handled me insisted that we we practice, and practice using it.
She put me on the stool and then I'd step up to the LOVE seat.  Often I would walk around the
stool giving it the once over but not using it.  THEN Friday, May 25 Dad was watching
some TVeees and I decided I wanted to watch too.  Mom was not home but when she got home Dad
said guess what, Madi used her stool all by herself.


There are two things to be learned from this post
1. you can teach a Senior Cat new tricks
2. Practice makes PURRFECT


And yesterday I discovered it makes a purrfect itty bitty kitty table


In case the video doesn't come up here is a photo

It's a Small World After all




It's a small world after all
There is just one moon and one golden sun
And a smile means friendship to everyone
Though the mountains divide and the oceans are wide
IT'S A SMALL WORLD AFTER ALL
There is so much that we share
And it's time we're aware
IT'S A SMALL WORLD AFTER ALL

Who said Royal Divas can't have fun!!!


Now for My Peeps way back ~20 years ago when they were young and foolish they took a summer vacation to Busch Gardens, Williamsburg VA.  Busch Gardens has several kinds of roller coasters.
Dad loves roller coasters you know the old fashion kind.  NOT MOM.
He begged her to go on a roller coaster like ride with him.  They walked all over the park 87 times
finally she agreed to ride The Big Bad Wolf roller coaster ONCE.


 The ride hung from under the track so mom thought it would be BETTER.....NOT..
 they watched many many times as it started off in this lovely setting
meandering through trees calmly.......

THEN just as it came out of the trees BAM they are just inches from the water😱😱😱
When they got to the water, Dad kept hollering for Mom to open her eyes
she kept telling him she could only take once sensation at a time and that was
the sensation of feeling she didn't need her eyes open.
The ride went around the track about 2 times.
YOU will never believe what happened after the first ride.
THEY RODE IT about 3 or 4 more times in a row and MOM opened her eyes and was πŸ˜€πŸ˜€


While looking for some images of the Big Bad Wolf on the Busch Gardens website she discovered
found this information.

Amusement Pics
The Big Bad Wolf was a favorite of many guests from 1984-2009. The ride was closed after 25 years to make way for a new coaster for the 2012 season.
