Oh, No! It’s Sunday Again

Standard

It was a beautiful spring day. The family had decided that it would be nice to go for a picnic after church. Mom fried some chicken, made potato salad, and added other things she thought her family would like. She even made a pie for dessert. Everyone piled in the car to go to church. After that, they went to the local park to have their picnic.

Mom and Dad spent the afternoon just relaxing and visiting while the kids played on the equipment, ran races, visited with friends they found there, and just kept active until they were too tired to do anything else. All in all, they spent about three hours at the park. By then, everyone was ready to go home. Both Mom and Dad had things to do to get ready for work tomorrow and the kids had homework to finish for school.

When the family arrived home, their cat, Jordy, was there to greet them. He noticed they didn’t look as happy as when they left in the morning, but he didn’t think much about it. After he was fed, he just sat and watched them. Dad was getting papers ready for a meeting at work the next day. Mom was making sure that her lesson plans were ready for the week since she was a teacher. The kids were mumbling under their breath about having to finish their homework. Jordy was so happy he was a cat because……….

Tank Goodness For Friday!!

Standard

I apologize, dear readers, for not being here the last two weeks. Back surgery was on 2/11 and much more invasive than I thought it was going to be. My younger son was here to help me, but he had to unplug my computer to plug his in so he could work from here. Didn’t have a chance to let you know what was happening before he unplugged me! Hope you enjoy the story.

Pudge was a very busy cat! He was an inside/outdoor cat and loved to explore. He slept almost sixteen hours a day, so he had to make good use of the six hours that he was awake. This didn’t always happen to be pleasant for the humans he lived with, but he WAS a cat, after all! Cats do what they want and humans have to get used to it. There were a variety of things that he could explore outside in his own yard as well as the neighboring yards. There were flowers, grass, and bugs to play with most of the time; when the weather was good, he also liked to go to the local coffee shop and hang out with the customers. In the winter he liked to go out and dig through the snow.

There were a lot more things to do inside which always seemed to get him into trouble. He wasn’t trying to be a bad cat; it just seemed to turn out that way. He loved laundry day because the clothes smelled so good when they came out of the dryer. Why did the humans get so mad when he would lay on them? So what if they were clean. Another warm place was on the computer keyboard. Humans didn’t like that either. Geez! His racing around the house at midnight also caused problems. When’s a cat suppose to get their exercise?

One week it seemed like everything went wrong. One of the neighbors yelled at him and chased him out of their yard for stalking their pet Chihuahua. The mailman didn’t appreciate a playful nip on the ankle. Pudge knocked over some spices on the kitchen counter when he was chasing a moth. He barfed up a hairball in a good pair of shoes. He missed the end table when he jumped from the couch and ended up hanging from the curtain. He decided that he better leave home for a while and let things calm down. So he headed for the coffee shop.

Whut a Week

Weird and Bizarre Cat Days

Standard

I do a newsletter for my church and send it out once a month. I started posted some of the weird and bizarre holidays for each month. Some of them are real crazy!! A lot of them revolve around food, like National Peanut Butter Cookie Day, and some are just plain silly, like Make Your Bed Day (isn’t that everyday?) or Be Late For Something Day. (Some people are always late) Anyway it gave me an idea for the blog. Here’s the weird days for this last week. Let’s see how our furry friends handle them.

Last Saturday, the 13th, was Positive Thinking Day. One look at this guy and you couldn’t help but do that!

Remember to Smile

Sunday was National Cream Filled Donut Day (Yum!!) This one wants his delivered.

Go Buy Something

Monday was Make A Hat Day. I think she had some help with hers.

Cute Bonnet

Tuesday was Collect Rocks Day (See what I mean about being silly) This cat passed on the rocks; he likes fish instead.

Oops

Wednesday was Citizenship Day. (Now that one makes sense!) You’re being a good citizen when you’re kind and helping someone else.

Every Cat Must Have Its Own Dog

Thursday was National Cheeseburger Day. (That’s another yum!) This little kitty made you a cookie because he wanted to trade it for your cheeseburger. (Sneaky little devil) However, you waited too long and he was too hungry.

I Made You a Cookie

Friday was Talk Like A Pirate Day. Couldn’t find any pirates, but found the Three Musketeers. That’s going to have to be close enough. However, they have the wrong day. Silly cats!

All For One and One For All

And finally, today is International Eat An Apple Day. Evidently the baby and/or the parents didn’t know that.

Watched Another Zombie Movie

Oh, well, such is life!! How did you do with this week’s weird and bizarre holidays? Like I said, some of them are pretty silly! Any comments to share about whether you liked this or not?
