Whew! What a night we just had! Thunderboomers so loud it felt like the building was exploding! Mommy said it was the loudest she had ever heard! Needless to say, when the boomers were going, I tried to stay by mommy's side to comfort her. But oh my codness, at one point I scrambled for under the dresser! And stayed there!
I'm going to catch up on my sleep now. No sunpuddles today! Have a great Friday, all!
Far too long since we posted. Sorry. Mommy stuff, ya know? We have tried to keep up with reading your blogs and sometimes commenting, so we are not totally clueless as to the news. But for a few days we have been off line, so that's one excuse.
Monday mommy cleaned cause Tuesday we were getting company. It was a nice lady named Barb, and I love her. She gives nice scritchies! Wednesday the power went off (thank goodness it was not muggy! We had the windows open). Don't worry. The elevators still worked and we have two generators here, and they were making sure they were working properly. That's why the power was out. I think they call it a Maintenance Check. Also yesterday the bug guy was here. We have a new company. This time it is one of the head maintenance guys from Headquarters, or what ever they call it! And the stuff they spray is toxic to kitties and humans. He wouldn't spray till I was put in my PTU and we left. We went downstairs to the lobby area, and mommy read her book. And what a book! It is one called The Tell-Tailed Heart by Monica Shaughnessy and we won it in a drawing a couple months ago. Mommy waited until she could get a real book, cause we don't have a Kindle or anything mobile like that. And we have been reading it. I must say, it is about Edgar Allen Poe's kitty and how the kitty solves mysteries and is Eddie's muse. A good, very good read!!! Four paws and two thumbs up!
I am forcing mommy to write this, cause she is about to leave for the clinic and won't be back for hours and I did want to say something here. I better let her go.
My new trick! Awefully skinny railing on the bed and basically an inch or two in the window. But the whiffies were worth it!
Enjoy the music or turn down your speakers and just watch the video, the choice is yours!
Enjoy Independence Day, and remember the soldiers who have made and are making America free!
God bless America!
Wednesday morning Mommy called in to maintenance that her shower head (that's where the water comes out) exploded. And we waited. And we waited. The next day she called to find out when it would be fixed and was told that since it wasn't an emergency, it was placed on a "three day", so they had three days to respond. Which, she was told, was much better than a "ten day". So Friday afternoon maintenance came and it took about 2 seconds to replace the whole thing. Now I tell you, humans are really kinda sad. They don't grow nice furs to keep warm all over their bodies, and they don't clean themselves like we do, they get water to do it! **shudder**
I told Mommy it was lame to take a picture of this shower head thing. I'm right, aren't I? Otherwise she'll take one for you. Or two or three.
Now our next bit of news is that it has been so rainy that the city next to us has been declared a disaster area because of flooding. Actually suburbs all around us are dealing with flooding. And many cities in the Midwest have flooding problems, too. And there have been lots of bad storms and tornadoes around the country, too. Mommy said when she was young (elebenty eleben years ago) she had to leave home in a boat, so she kinda understands the nastiness of floods. And she also has been through a lot of tornadoes, so she understands that devastation. Total cities can be destroyed in a few minutes! Mommy jokes that she spent her childhood (when not in school or church) in a "fruit cellar", which she explains is like a basement. They had games and stuff, and treats for the family dog (they wanted him safe, too).
Oh, and the President was here, and he ate at a place called Matt's Bar, which Mommy used to go to cause of their famous award-winning hamburgers. They have cheese in the middle! She wishes she could go again, but she doesn't drive, and planning a trip there is hard.
We have more storms coming this weekend, which Mommy says is not good for the flooding problem at all. Lots of businesses are affected by this. The guy that runs one of the riverboat cruise businesses says that they have lost lots of monies cause they can't cruise in flood waters, and he feels really bad about the college kids he employs, cause they can't work, and they need monies for school. Something called the Taste of Minnesota, usually in St.Paul, has moved to a city called Waconia. They want to be open for the July 4th weekend celebrations every year, and this wouldn't happen in St. Paul cause of the flooding.
Whew. I hope that's it for the news roundup. That was hard work.
Naptime is calling my name! Quinn, Quinn.
Take care all of you. I'm going to be napping now!
Oh, and before I forget, there's lots of blogoversaries and gotcha day celebrations! Check out the linkies at the Cat Blogosphere!
Love ya all!
You don't really want pictures of the shower head thingy do you? Didn't think so.
