SATURDAY SECRET*

I LOVE CUSHIONS.....


I CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MUCH OR TOO MANY CUSHIONS UNDER MY TUSH!!
 BEHIND ME AND AROUND ME
 I EVEN LIKE TO WARM UP LEAVE MY FURS THE PEEPS DINING ROOM CUSHIONS
 MY SIS'S KITTY HARLEY LOVES CUSHIONS UNDER HIM AND BLANKIES ON TOP OF HIM.  HE IS A CORNISH REX ..
THEY DON'T HAVE MUCH FURS
AND SOMETIMES MY LOVE OF
CUSHIONS/SOFTNESS UNDER MY TUSH
GETS ME IN TIGHT  SITUATIONS
RE-ENACTMENT OF THE TIME I SOUGHT
THE SOFTNESS OF A DRAWER 
AND MOM MISTAKENLY CLOSED ME IN THE DRAWER.

Mom has officially earned her Old Gray Mare

 (OGM) status!  Why you ask...well let me tell you

The secret*

OMCs this was supposed to be a Saturday Photo Post...but alas the OGM only gave the word list a quick glance earlier this week.  She thought the word was CUSHION...
Thank goodness she looked again....
 IT WAS NOT CUSHION, IT WAS CUSTOM!!! 
AND SHE WAS TOO LAZY TO MAKE ANOTHER POST!!

EVERYONE ALL TOGETHER SAY

OLD GRAY MARE!!!

Thursday Tale: Tree Monkeys Returneth

You will probably remember this photo from our post on Saturday 2/28/15 about
the falling pine tree limb barely missed Gracie our Highlander on Thursday 2/26/15.
As soon as the peeps saw this on Thursday morning, they were on the phone calling 
the Tree Monkeys to get on their schedule to have the offending trees removed
Well lo and behold the peeps are very good customers to the tree monkeys
They came to our house Saturday morning....and they were noisy.
They came with a chipper machine shown below.
OMCs you would not want your paws to get caught in that thing.
It actually ate up and spit out huge sections of trees and limbs
 They were very efficient and
 I was happy to see one of the Tree Monkey's had
impressive climbing skills.  He made this climb look easy!!

During the entire ordeal I sat right here....cause I knew Mom had my back
but I was ready to scurry if need be.

 In spite of the cold and miserable conditions, mom really loved how the
ice formed on the bird feeder domes.  She said it reminded her of 
old fashioned lamp shades with crystals hanging from the shades
Yay mom she always tries to see the beauty in things.
We are thrilled to say the last pine trees that could potentially threaten our house
are now gone.  The yard looks rather pathetic but we'll plant some pretty flowering trees like
dogwoods and crepe myrtles this spring to fill in the gaps.

Words of Wisdom for the Male species....

Dear male friends it is I, Madi, here to offer you some very, very
impawtant information.  On Saturday, February 21, the resident
Male Dad of Casa de Madi, discovered once again the
rules of the house change and evolve by the hour.

You see he had  no clue one of his jobs was to be Mom's
Man-in-waiting: The job description of this position is
to thoroughly look mom over from head to toe before they go out.
Saturday afternoon I was sitting up on the dresser when I heard Mom call bellow to Dad.  
YOU ARE FIRED!
I cannot believe you let me leave the house like this.....
MOL MOL they went out to eat and ran several errands!!
I could hardly wait see what Dad didn't SEE

 I had to jump down to check things out.

Poor dad failed to notice that mom left the house
wearing two different earrings.... exhibit one below!!!!

OMCs I must defend my Dad....
I innocently asked, Well Mom how come you didn't notice
the earrings were different?  
1.They are different shapes, and different textures.
2. Didn't you see them when you brushed your teeth.
Then she gave me a stinky eye look that made me
retreat.
Her excuse was the earrings were in her drawer but had been placed by the incorrect mate....and she failed to notice.
I suggested:
Neither Dad nor I wear earrings so that was her fault.
Then she gave me another stern stinky eye...for fear of starvation I
once again retreated.
SHE SAID DAD should have noticed, she said she always makes sure his clothes match etc, (much to his dismay).

SO GUYZ OF ALL SPECIES I LEAVE YOU WITH THIS BIT OF WISDOM:
ALWAYS PAY ATTENTION
THE TINIEST DETAILS CAN GET YOU INTO A BIG
POT OF 
T R O U B L E

RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED
MADI AND DAD

Tuesday Tale: Topsy Turvy


Have you ever heard someone say, 'they are trying to ignore the
elephant in the room"?
Meaning there is something/someone really weird in the room
and you are trying not to notice

Well that is what I'm trying to do

 Except I'm trying to ignore the elephant Mom on the floor
taking photos of me.  Yep she is stretched out on the floor
WHY you ask?  
Because she is a crazy pants mom with nothing better to do.
I got news for her I'm not offering her a paw to get up!

REMINDER:
WOMEN of all Species!!!
