hi. this has been kind of a hard week with dr. stuff going on. but. but. the good thing is that we started out the week with presents!!! we got an envelope in the mail from some good friends and boy did it have good stuff in it. i got the coolest yellow fuzzy wand to play with, a catnip toy, a whole box of catnip, Temptations treats (which i've never had and i keep buggin' my Mom to open 'em but she hasn't yet) and, and the most beautiful purple collar with DIAMONDS on it. i want to wear it so bad but my Mom told me today that since I lose so many collars she thinks it's best that we wait a little bit and let it be my fall collar for when some of the green stuff in the back of the yard goes away. that way if it falls off she'll be able to find it, cause she wouldn't want it to get lost 'cause of all the DIAMONDS on it. oh, it's so very, very pretty, i can't wait to show it to you all in the fall. wow, my friends are so cool to send me all this great stuff. there was even somethin' for my Mom in there too which I very nicely gave to her, even though the envelope was addressed to ME!!

some of you poodins, like Oreo, have real owls in your yards. we hear an owl makin' owl noises, but we've never seen him. we do, though, have our own owl right back in the bird feedin' area. his name is Hoot. back when my Mom and the Dad were makin' jewelry and doin' art shows, they used to trade jewelry for lotsa stuff that other artists made. at one show, they met a guy who made art out of recycled stuff. they got Hoot, who was made outa recycled refrigermators and stoves and stuff. he's really cool, the chipmunks like to sit on his head. i wish he was a real owl, but i guess he's as close as i'm gonna get.
P.S. my Mom is a little annoyed at me 'cause i lost 2 collars this week....i don't know where they go!!!(maybe Hoot stole 'em?)

well, the Calico Girls tagged me and we're tryin' to think of five weird things 'bout each of us and i guess we're pretty borin' 'cause we can't. so we're gonna do the best we can here and just make one multi-purpose list.

1. i will usually come when my Mom calls or whistles, but i will ALWAYS come when she whistles a special song, just for me, it's from a movie, but we don't know the name of it (how dumb is that?)
2. my sister Casey has never had her collar fall off, but i have mine fall off, at least once a month when i am out in the yard. my Mom swears there must be a black hole, 'cause some of them just disappear, never to be found.
3. my Mom's fav'rite sandwitch is pumpernickle bread with chunky peanut butter, sliced ham and sliced sweet gherkin pickles (shudder)
4. my sister Casey has 'bout four fav'rite sleeping spots, but i counted mine today and i have, at current count 12 (variety is the spice of life!)
5. when the litter boxes were against the wall i always missed and peed all over the floor. now that they're more in the middle of the room, i never miss, not even once.
6. when my Mom got me, they thought i was a girl (hrmmph!)
7. when my sister Casey was really little, her fur looked pink and they called her The Pink Kitty
8. there is a special lamp by the bed and my Mom leaves it on during the day so i can sit under it and get Hot Head. it's 'specialy nice during the winter.
9. my Mom collects stuff that i think is weird - glass eggs and glass hearts. oh, and felix the cat stuff - guess why???
10. the Dad's favorite dish that my Mom makes is Cajun Ribs and even tho it makes her cry and sneeze 'cause of all the spices and cayenne pepper when she cooks it, she makes it anyway!!

So, I'm gonna tag some of you. forgive me if you've already been tagged, it's hard to keep up. Here's the rules: The player of this game starts with "5 weird things/habits about yourself ". In the end you need to choose 5 people to be tagged and list their names. The people who get tagged need to write a blog about their 5 weird things/habits, as well as state this rule clearly, then tag 5 more victims. Don't forget to leave your victim a comment that says "you're tagged!" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

I tag: Mattingly, Mia and Ghost, Scout, Smudge and Gigilo Kitty

a song for the Calico Girls

well. it seems i had one more song that needed to struggle out. it's kinda short, but my Mom needed to get on the computer, so my time was limited. it's for my good friends Patches Lady, Mittens Pollypaws and Mistrie Rose. all very pretty ladies.

Calico Bedtime
(sung to Silent Night)

Silent night,
Quiet night,
All is calm
All is right
‘round the deck
The girls settle in
Keeping watch on
Their home and their kin
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night,
Quiet night,
Patches roams
Mittens’ home
Mistrie waits for her treats by the door
Mom keeps watch for the bears, maybe more
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

a nice summer day

hi. it's a lovely summer day. 85 degrees but not with all that wet air that makes everybody unhappy and i'm just doin' what i do best, takin' care of things around the homestead.

my Mom worked kinda part time this week and is gonna do the same next week. it's hard for her to get to work 'cause she can't drive 'till november so she's hitchin' a ride with somebody and takin' a bus some days. she says it's an adventure that i don't wanna hear 'bout.

what i really want to say 'bout my Mom though, is how she 'ppreciates your Mom's and how some of them are becomin' her friends. you know who you are, and it's really special to her that she can talk with you, so we thank you a lot. and i have to thank diva kitty and the crew again for the song you did for my Mom. she keeps playin' the short song from Rent that goes with it and it really makes her happy that you did that. so Thanks and i hope you all are havin' a good day!
