Friday Update: Reno week 2


First of all let me thank my mom for staying with me in the blog office all week.
Most days we've been hold up in here a total of 5 hours or so.
Mom lets me roam in the storage room
She gets down on the floor with me, pets/comforts me lots.
I'm really and truly okey dokey...loving the extra M&M time.
I just wish the door wasn't closed!! We are sitting right in front of the door. I can't see the 

noise makers but I can hear them.


She even opened the closet door to let me nose around in there and nap

Now for a few photos of the bathroom as of  earlier this week


*Oliver our tile guy told us this leveling stuff would be smelly he said
lots of folks said it smelled like an old drunk.  MOL Mom told
the Doodz mom this.
She replied, "how do they know that and wonder what a 
young drunk smells like"? That was funny

Top right photo is a peep of the shower floor and mosaic 


Bathroom as of 4 pm 6/30/16 tile is completed still no fixtures

Tuesday: Another 'NOT' tale


Last Monday when the demo started our builder told my peeps he had a
fellow who would be coming on Tuesday to take care of some odds and ends 
chores: i.e. hang new doors, repair some sheet rock.  Our builder called him his
'punch list' guy.  We were told he was a retired cabinet maker and all around handy man so we were excited.  When he arrived Tuesday, he introduced himself to Mom.  Later she told Dad his name was Pete.  So the day went on and the peeps talked to Pete a lot.  He was very friendly and had lived in the NC mountains working as a facilities manager for a very popular craft school.  My peeps love the mountains so you know they loved his stories.  As he was leaving for the day, Mom asked him his last name.  He said Williams...mom repeated Pete Williams.  You know what is coming next don't you?   He replied, "my name is NOT Pete".  My name is Feet, you know like what is at the end of your legs, Feet.  
Mom thought surely he was pulling her leg telling her his name was Feet so she said seriously your name is Feet?  He told mom he given the  nickname when he was about 9 and has been called that all his life.  That it is even on his checks.  Each worker who comes in the house takes off their shoes at the door.  Mom had noticed that he had really big shoes compared to the other worker's shoes.  Mom didn't ask how he got the name but she figures it is because he has big feet.



So now we have a growing list of 
Nots:
Not Earl
Not Carol
Not Beth
and 
Not Pete!!
Wonder who will join the Not club next?

No matter what his name is or is NOT he is a most talented handy man and has worked some miracles around here. 
Especially in our laundry area.  Since mom got her stackable 
washer and dryer, the louvered doors would not close. 
Not Pete, built a little recessed cubby for the cables and cords.
Then he was able to push the machines back enough now the doors close.  Small things make a big difference

Musical Mews and Nap for Bailey

I have a new theme song that describes how I feel about being sequestered...
TOGM took the pics in this collage on Friday.  


I was meowing to Dad...
and it reminded TOGM of the Song 
TITLE: LET ME IN except I'm saying OUT
by
The Sensations (a/k/a Yvonne and the Sensations) 
Words and Music by Yvonne Baker 
Topped out at # 4 in 1962 

Here is the first chorus!! It truly describes me

Let me out whee-ooh (whee-ooh, whee-ooh, hoop-whee-ooh) 
(Whee-ooh, whee-ooh, hoo-ooh-oop-whee-ooh, whee-ooh) 

I can see the dancin' (let me out
The silhouettes on the shade 
I hear the music (music), all the lovers on parade 
Open up (let me out), I wanna come out again 
I thought you were my friend 
Pitter patter of those fee-ee-ee-ee-eet 
Movin' and a-groovin' with that be-eat 
Jumpin' and stompin on the flo-o-o-o-oor 
(Lemme out) Let me out
(Open up) Open up! 
Why don't you open up that door? (let me out

I-uh (open up) hear music let me out (music) 
I wanna come in again 
Let me out (let me out), a-well I heard it just then 
I thought you were my friend 

(Whee-ooh, whee-ooh, hoop-whee-ooh) 
(Whee-ooh, whee-ooh, hoo-ooh-oop-whee-ooh, whee-ooh)

JOIN update on Upside down Rainbow

It has been a long, loud, dusty week

BREAKING NEWS:
Our good buddy Kathy aka Molly the Golden's Mom sent us the following:


I have an answer to the "Upside Down Rainbow" :
There must have been lots of moisture in those clouds. When the sun's light went through it making a prism or rainbow. Often you can see the whole 'circle rainbow' around the sun. In your photo only part of it was visible making it look like an upside down rainbow.  The full circle would have been called a Sun Dog. Don't know where the term came from! If you see the same thing around the Moon it's a Moon Dog.
