Kitty Photo Shoot

Sometimes I get asked why there are always more pics of Rhett than Rafe
This is why.

All I wanted to do was get a picture of the 2 of them for a New Years greeting.

Rhett sees the camera and gets right to work with an adorable pose.
Rafe starts rolling around

Rhett still posing, Rafe rolls out of the shot

Rhett continues to look cute and Rafe will not look at the camera

Rhett getting bored with this now and Rafe won't open his eyes

Rhett gives up on looking cute and attacks his brother

How come....


this shit never fits back in the boxes?

I'm so blonde

I am making panels for the living room windows.
They are coming along nicely except for when I went to put the first one up I see I have sewn shut where you stick the rod in on every single panel...duh.

Dreaming in the Past Tense

Last night I had a very vivid dream that I ran in to an old friend from High School.
We were so happy to see each other and sat down to chat.
It didn't even seem strange that Barbara has been dead since 1995.
Dreams are funny that way.

Reunited

Rhett couldn't bear to see me packing away Grumpy Santa so I guess it will be a permanent fixture on the futon Boyz Bed.

Shopping: Not a bargain


I was online shopping this morning and saw this site advertising Louis Vuitton bags starting at $9.99 and 97% off retail.
Well, doesn't that just sound too good to be true.
Of course, these are not Louis Vuitton they are knockoffs and not very good ones.
The site has a lot of "compare too" and "retail value" verbiage to make it look like you are getting a bargain.
Whatever.

On the Soap Box

Yesterday was trash day, but the garbage collectors had the day off and most of our neighbors have left all of their post holiday boxes and bags on the curb to not be picked up until Thursday, so tacky! The sad thing is that our neighborhood offers recycle bins for both paper and aluminum. Because of this, our household is only filling the local landfill with a bag or two a week. I hate it that more folks do not take advantage of these bins. Besides, do you really want the whole world to know that Santa brought you a shiny new big screen tv or a computer?

Shopping: Total Gym 1700

So we wanted one of these.
We've Seen Chuck Norris's infomercial and thought that it would work nicely downstairs as a coat rack. A quick search on Google turned up oodles of them for around 350.00.
If you buy one from the official site however, they will be happy to accept a small trial fee followed by convienent billing of 16 payments of only 99.00.
OUCH!

Friday Christmas Cat Blogging

Twas the Night Before Christmas
with The Boyz

Twas the night before Christmas, and at our little house
Rhett is snooping around for his new Christmas mouse;
snoopy

The stockings are hung by the TV with care,
And The Boyz think they look very pretty right there;
stockings

Rafe and Santa are nestled all snug in his bed,
bed
While Rhett and the snowman play twisty instead;
twisty

The wrapping is done with some help from dear Rhett
wrap
And they both think this will be the best Christmas yet
all

To our family and friends, you are all very dear
Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year
