Thankful But Troubled Thursday

Meows from Mudpie!

There's never a dull moment at our house. Last week we noticed some scary looking swelling and redness on my Grandpa's arm. Mommy decided to take him to the doctor before the long weekend started, and it's a good thing she did because it was cellulitis. The doctor said it could've gotten out of hand really fast. Grandpa got some strong antibiotics that have made him feel pretty yucky, but thankfully at his follow-up appointment on Tuesday the doctor said it was looking a lot better.

Grandpa is so fragile. This has been his third round of antibiotics for various ailments in just the last 5 weeks. Mommy says if I ever scratched him (which I would never do, I've never scratched anyone) he would probably either spring a leak or fall apart! 

In spite of my purrfection, would you believe I got in trouble on Tuesday morning?!?!?! I was looking out the bedroom window, and then had a notion to take a flying leap onto one of Mommy's boxes of Conway records! She was pretty surprised because I don't jump very much anymore, but I was told in no uncertain terms that I needed to get down. I would think she'd be impressed that at nearly 10 years old (and more than a little overweight) I'm still pretty agile!

Mommy makes mistakes too. Yesterday she decided to put in our portable air conditioner since the hots have arrived. In order to get the storm window and ladder in and out of the garage door she had to move Grandpa's rollator out of the way. She came back into the house, closed the garage door from the kitchen, and heard...CRUNCH.

She closed the garage door on the rollator and broke the handlebar off. After unsuccessfully trying to glue and duct tape it back on, she was able to order a replacement handlebar online. For that we're super thankful because Grandpa can't get around without it, but Mommy really beat herself up over doing something so stupid.

Memorial Day 2023


"We can never replace them. We can never repay them. But we can always remember. And today, that is what we are doing — we remember. Words cannot wipe away the tears or bring back those smiling faces. But if Americans just take the time to look into your eyes and tell you how much we thank you and how dearly we pray for you and how truly we love you, then hopefully you can find solace through your pain. And every time you see the sun rise over this blessed land please know your brave sons and daughters pushed away the night and delivered for us all that great and glorious dawn."

~ President Donald J. Trump, 5/29/17

Tongue To Tongue #PetPhotoFails

Meows from Mudpie!

Thank you for joining us for this month's edition of the Pet Photo Fails Blog Hop! Now that we've reached the end of May, the dreaded summer heat is right around the corner. In fact, temps next week are forecast to be in the high 80s.

Goodbye, cuddle weather! See you again in the fall :( 

My photo fail this month was taken on CatLadyBox day when Mommy gave me my Slithery Snake toy. He stuck his tongue out at me, which I found to be quite rude! My attempts at showing him who's boss ended up rather blurry...

Those are my bloopers...let's see yours!
