Steinbeck, leave it alone.  We need to thank Renmi for thinking of us.

ABOUT THE VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD

The Rules: 

1) Display the award on your blog.

2) Thank the blogger that nominated you and provide a link to their blog.

3) Share seven facts about yourself.

4) Nominate 15 bloggers for the award and provide links to their blog.  (Mom says she might have to cheat on this.)


SEVEN THINGS ABOUT ME

 

1)  I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in journalism.

2) I love all animals.

3) I worked in the airline industry for almost 19 years.

4) I don’t eat fish or seafood.

5) I am afraid of balloons.  I can handle the Mylar ones but keep all the others away from me.

6) I met and interviewed Sally Field and spent part of a day with her on her TV set.

7) I love taking pictures.


Mom says everyone should be nominated, but she’s running out of time.  The awards are fun ‘cuz they introduce us to other bloggers.   However, if they are as busy as Mom is, they may not have the time to nominate others.  Please know how much we appreciate the award and how much we love so many bloggers out there.  We have become an extended family ready to help each other through the rough times and then to laugh like crazy through the funny times.

So……………Mom says we are nominating all of our readers!!!  Thanks for being with us.  Mom, can I go eat now???

You’ve got to be quiet, Steinbeck.  We’ve got some important talking to do.  Make sure Mom is not around.

She’s in the other room and I think she fell asleep. If I keep my eyes shut she won’t see me anyway.

Good, and while you’re at it, keep your mouth shut, too.  Now, May is almost over and you know what that means.

Winter’s coming?

No, goofball.  The next month is June.

Hey………..that’s when my birthday is!!!

I know.  Mom will celebrate it big time like she does with all of our birthdays.

So, why do I have to be quiet about that?  Mom already knows.

But also in June is Mom’s birthday.

It is???  No wonder I like her so much.

Anyway…………..we have to try to do something special for her.  Do you have any ideas?

I can share my catnip with her…..or let her use my red dot toy.

Boys????  What are you doing???

Nothing, Mom………and I’m not up on top of the computer desk.

Nothing, Mom………I’m just chewing my fingernails so you don’t have to clip them.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm………..

who

Hemingway, can you explain to me again what Memorial Day is?  I know Mom gets the day off from work but it has to be lots more than that.

Oh yes, it’s lots more than that.  On this day humans make it a point to stop and honor all the men and women who have served in the armed forces.  It’s those brave humans who help to keep this country free.  If it wasn’t for them, maybe Mom wouldn’t be living here and maybe she wouldn’t have adopted us.  Even fur people help keep this country free and we need to honor them as well.  They give up so much so we can have freedom.  We really need to celebrate and honor them EVERY DAY.

Thanks, Hemingway.  Next year I’ll know what’s going on!!

Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day and a HUGE THANKS to all of our service humans and fur people who have served, are serving, and will serve to keep our country free.  We love you!

I’m ready for my close-up.  I’m also standing at attention so I can salute our flag.  Is that what I’m supposed to do, Hemingway?  I hope I have it right.  This is my first Memorial Day celebration.  Is Mom fixing catnip on the grill?

Mom was so excited when she got home ‘cuz it was sunny and really nice.

After a quick supper for all of us, she put my vest and leash on and we all headed outside.

Actually, I was already outside while you were still getting “dressed”.

Whatever….

We thought we would show you what we were looking at.

I got really scared yesterday.  When I looked outside there was a very bright light out there.  I couldn’t figure out what it was.  I didn’t want Mom to go out there, but she did!

What are you babbling about, Steinbeck?  You know perfectly well that the bright light was the sun!

But we hadn’t seen it for so long.  I thought maybe it had left for good.  That’s why the bright light scared me!

Don’t worry, Steinbeck.  I’m here to take care of you.  That’s what big brothers are for!

So, after supper tonight I was looking over Mom’s shoulder and reading our blog.  I was wondering why Hemingway got to go on a field trip and I didn’t.  Then I read what happened!  OMC!!!!

 I just visited the doctor lady not too long ago ‘cuz I had a problem with my “pants”.  Do you know how humiliating that was??  I couldn’t even talk about it.  

And they did that “manny” “petty” thing on me, too!  He didn’t lose all his claws, he just had them cut shorter.  Why does our Mom want us to have short nails?  Is it just ‘cuz she can’t seem to grow her nails long so she doesn’t want to be jealous of us?  If I promise to always hide them around you, Mom……..will you let me grow them long again?  (Can’t say no if I don’t ask. )

When Hemingway came home last night, I wondered where he had been.  He had different smells and he wasn’t talking.  At first I thought maybe he had gone to visit some of our blogging friends.  However, the more I sniffed him, the more I recognized the doctor lady’s house smells.  I was real nice to him last night and let him recover.

Mom says he has to have his toofie worked on and that they will put him out for it.  Does that mean they will put him outside?  Why can’t he just go outside here?  She said he’ll be gone all day.  That’s a long time for him to be away.  How am I going to survive by myself?

Will I have to eat his food so his dish doesn’t get lonely?

Will I have to drag out all his favorite toys?

Will I have to try out all the litter boxes?  Wait……….I already do that!  Cross that off my list.

Will I have to do the blog by myself again?

This is just too much for my little brain.  I need a nap!
