Freaky Friday: DownUnder visitors


Last Tuesday Dad came in from the mail box with a huge gray box we cut away the gray to find......
 It was clear to us that someone had ordered a box Crocs  BUT why!? 
FYI I'm not sharing my food with them!! 
After they sat in the box for 24 hours.....I told Dad
Lo and behold we discovered......
Surely there was a mistake and they must be returned...
Mom finally told us after the 15.5" of rain we rec'd in 12 days, she discovered her ankle high rain shoes to be useless.
The Farmer's Almanac said this was gonna be a very wet winter 
so in a lickety split nanosecond she went on line to 
order knee high boots....(along with every other female  in the world)...Mom was heart broken to discover there were no 
RED boots big enough to fit her BIG FOOT...but at least she didn't have to order WHITE...'cause WHITE is her least favorite color.
THE END

Hugs from North Carolina to Iowa


Our K9 friends Phod and Hailey said one day their Lady was thinking how she'd like to jump in her car, head to IOWA to hug Ms. Deb and Mr. Butch.
Then she thought how about a sending them Hugs from around the World...



Ms. Deb and Mr. Butch, are the peeps to The Three Little PUGS.
As many of you know Mr. Butch was hurt in a terrible accident at work...
he is working very hard to get better and we know he will.
The hugs are to let him know we are here for them.  When you are sick or a caregiver, you sometimes you feel alone BUT YOU TWO ARE NEVER alone
**********************************
First off for those of you who don't read Cat eyes...this is what Mom calls 
my blinky blinky look...I slowly close my eyes while looking at mom
and she does the same back to me.  Translation is 

"I adore you and in this case we'll say it is  an EYE HUG"


This is me Madi...hugging playing smacky face with  my sister Lucy...


Last but not least Mom giving me a hug...(mol mol mol) as you can see mom 
IS LOVINGLY HUGGING  has a death gripe on me.  
Ms. Deb, Mr. Butch and Maggie, Gus and Stella
these are for you...and as always
HUGS MADI YOUR BFFF and Mom

The peeps had a fine time at the Fair..in fact...according to mom
it might have been one of the best times in a while.
They secret is to get there early to avoid the crowds in the exhibit halls.  It was a tad chilly (42) when the arrived but they were dressed appropriately.  No photos though 'cause mom
gets all crazy at the thought of dropping her camera.

Tuesday (funny) Tale

This was supposed to be a Sunday Selfie..
but the more WE TOGM (the old gray mare) looked at it the scarier it became.  
Purrsonally I think mom looks ghoulish


and I, Madi, look like a drunken bar maid.



I call'em like I see'em!!
Fair and balanced criticism
THE END

The State Fair is in town....my peeps wanted to go Friday but there was a lot of work going on with the landscaping that needed Dad's attention.
So the plan is to go bright an early this morning.
They are going to have breakfast out there, 
see the sights (no rides though) and be on the way
home well before the Noon crowds arrive.
We'll catch up with you this afternoon.
