Wonderful Wednesday: Finding A Safe Place

The primary color of my wardrobe is black. My second color is navy and then dark gray. Are you seeing a pattern here? Well Mr. Nine, who has always liked the hanging clothes closet as a sleeping spot (it is actually two 6-foot closets running along one wall with sliding mirror doors), has taken to pulling stuff down off the hangers and making himself a bed on the shelf. Oh my! Sometimes, at 5 am when I am getting dressed for work, he jumps out at me and we both get scared. Lint rollers don’t even work anymore. Long ago I realized he can slide the doors open on his own and go inside. No keeping him out. I have my black suits and dresses hidden in a closet under the stairs that the cats can’t get into (unless of course, they run in when I am getting dressed and get trapped all day, which has happened). Cat and dog hair is my life.

Don’t forget our fallen citizens today on Sept, 11. The world is getting more and more unstable as the days pass. Remember those innocents who lost their lives today and every day.

Wonderful Wednesday: Mr. Contrary

I have to laugh how in sync the animals are. Sometimes even the cats lie on the floor with the dogs in the same positions. We get lots of mirroring around the zoo. Mr. Charles cracked me up on this day because Louise and Sofie were lying one way and he was lying the other way, busy, as usual, chewing on a toy. It reminded me of the old nursery rhyme:

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.[1]

Wonderful Wednesday: Red Tail Hawk

As I drove up to the house after work this visitor alighted on my chimney. He clearly had a great deal to say.

Anyone speak red tail hawk?

Wonderful Wednesday: Summer Stroll

Taking a stroll on a warm morning. Everyone is happy to be walking. They don’t get to walk much as a pack since Mom went to work outside the house. Charlie is especially happy.
