Last night Mom came home and couldn't find me. I had found a new, cooler napping spot. She tried to get a picture, but...
The hot stickies give Mom headaches, and make it hard for her to sleep. I think she should just stay home instead of going day hunting, but she just won't listen.

I can't either.

After waiting a bit to let it pass, I drove home. I missed all the bad stuff, but as I got off the highway, I noticed all the traffic lights were out. Indeed, all the electricity was out in a large area. I turned off the main road, hoping to avoid a traffic disaster at a big set of lights down the street from me, and drove home in a roundabout way.
Less than 1/2 mile from home, I passed an intersection that had been blocked by a large firetruck. A big tree had broken in half and fallen over some electrical wires.
I kept going.
A few blocks away I passed another fallen tree. It broke the fence, and landed on the sidewalk.Note the broken branches on the second floor porch railing.
I kept going.
But nothing prepared me for the sight of a large pine tree leaning on a house not one block away from home.
A quarter mile away, two very large maple trees fell across streets nearby.
Nobody was injured.

Mom made a bag for Mim-may's birthday. You can go over and check it out here.
It's one of the many reasons I haven't been visiting or commenting on as many blogs as I used to. Mom claims there aren't enough hours in the day.
Pfft. All she has to do is limit her activities, and do what I do. Eat, Nap, Play, Blog. I try to set a good example. I dunno about beans...

Dancing Down the Aisle Wedding Dance
It's the one thing that made Mom laugh when she found it yesterday. She had to bring the metal macheen to be inspected and it cost her many many many many green papers. She was seriously bummed.
She's sewing today, and I'm doing what I do best.

There's some boring stuff in it for Mom, (like fabric) but something caught my nose right away!
A very special 'Nip toy in Tuxie colors! I have been sniffing it, rubbing up against it, and batting it all over the house!
It's Mim-may's birthday today! Happy Birthday Mim-may! (Maybe you could help me go over and give her some Happy Birthday wishes!)

Silly Mom has agreed to do Doll Quilt Swap 7, and she is even a Swap Mama this time! Which means she has spent the last couple of nights shuffling papers around swapping babies!!! I'm telling you, she's lost her mind!
PS, Mom says thanks for the HB wishes. She particularly liked the comment that her age was the speed limit in a school zone! She got a great laugh out of that one!

It's my supply of Turkey stinky goodness. I have -finally- got Mom trained. Instead of buying several different flavors of stinky goodness, now she just gets the one I love best.
I am such a lucky girlcat!

Mom works with a man named R--, whose wife, B---, has a colleague whose house burned down recently. We will call the colleague Sue.
Sue was working in her garden three days before the house burned down when she felt someone staring at her. She turned around, and a short way away was sitting a Ginger Kitty, perfectly regal and still. Sue called to the Ginger Kitty. The Ginger Kitty approached and accepted pets.
The Ginger Kitty stayed nearby, still watching. Later, the Ginger Kitty followed her into the house. Ginger Kitty didn't have a collar or tag.
Sue fed the kitty, and Ginger Kitty stayed. He watched her work in the garden, and slept on her bed at night.
One night, Sue was awakened by Ginger Kitty's frantic pawing (no claws) on her cheek. The house was on fire. Sue could hear it roaring. She woke her husband, picked up Ginger Kitty, and got out of the house safely. The house burned right down to the foundation. There was nothing left.
The insurance company brought a trailer for Sue and her husband to live in while the insurance details were sorted out. Ginger Kitty moved right in.
A few days later, one of Sue's neighbors stopped by to see if she and her husband needed anything. Ginger Kitty put in an appearance.
"Hey, that's my cat," the neighbor said. "He's been missing about a week."
"He saved my life," replied Sue.
"Well, he never did like me much, so he's your cat now."
This is a true story. Amazing, huh?
Mom loves stories about how a cat can change your life. I changed hers.

You can also tell that I have learned to half-close my eyes when Mom brings the little flashy camera around.

Because we -might- and I do mean -might- as opposed to -will-, be having a guest visiting later this week. This person is a Very Special Person, and Mom wants the house all spiffy clean.
She's even going to bake cookies.
I am going to stay out of her way.
Who is the Very Special Person that -might- be visiting? Mom won't tell me. But I gotta say this person must mean a lot to Mom because she won't even do any sewing until The House Is Clean.
And she says she'll take away my stinky goodness if I so much as drop a hint.
So I'm just gonna nap right here on the bed and mind my own business.

Mom's been working on another project and hogging the computer, and I didn't have much time to do a blog post today. So I decided to use an idea from Diva Kitty and post a picture of me from the "archives." This was taken two years ago today.
Gosh, I was cute!

Yesterday Mom took Missy-the-woofie away, but when she came back, Missy was with her.
Mom says that she will go home with Mim-may later today.
After we cheer and root for both Roger and Andy.
It's gonna be a rough day.
On the plus side, this is the first day in weeks and weeks and weeks that we have had sunshine and NO CLOUDS!

In MY cat cup.
(Millie, you never, ever, get in that cat cup.)
Phfft. I don't care. Lookit, here she is in my special cat bed Monty's Mom made for me:
After the tennis was over yesterday, and Our Andy beat Fat Eric's Andy, Mom took Missy out. But when Mom came back, Missy came back too.
Missy is staying with us for three whole days while Mim-may and Pip-pay visit friends in Connect-i-cat.
Happy Fourth of July!

Mom and I are watching Tennis today. We are rooting for Roger Federer, and while we know Fat Eric is rooting for Andy Murray, we have to support our own Andy, Andy Roddick.
