well, it's always better when it's Saturday 'cause that means my Mom is around. those noisy guys were only here part of the day and then they left. so i got to meander around in the back yard this afternoon. i tried really hard to catch a chipmunk ( my Mom thwarted my efforts by tappin' on the window and scarin' the chipbut i still had fun. ) now i'm tired and will take a nap in my workshop box with the Dad and my stuffed bunny. i heard rumours about a special treat later to make up for all the noise this week, so it seems i have somethin' to look forward to. i also heard somethin' about my Mom's next trip for work, which is to Hawaii. i don't know where that is, but it sounds like it's far, far away and like she's gonna be gone for a real long time. this is so not fair.
