In which June did not blow up

I am still here. On this side of the grass.

Gasman
Here is the grass I am on top of, and also the gas man’s truck. Oh, and look. A jogger. BARK! BARKBARKBARKBARK!rrrrrrrBARK!

What if you hadn’t read yesterday’s post? So far this whole thing would make no sense.

Anyway, my pilot light was out. That was it. How was I supposed to know that was it? And the gas man, who was very nice, lifted my stove top to show me the pilot light, and also 80 pounds of cat food, popcorn and spaghetti. The only things ever to go near that stove.

I guess the cat food got in there because I used to feed the cats atop the fridge, and some of it must have gotten knocked through the burners. At any rate, it was disgusting in there and quite the archaeological dig. While the gas man searched the rest of my house for gas leaks and/or valuables, I scrubbed that under-the-stove-top area like a madwoman.

So I lived. I enjoyed meeting the gas man. He was the bomb.

In other news, guess who is cute.

Whybosserwhy you bozzer?

Anderson always looks snooty in photos, but really he is the sweetest kitten I have ever had. All he wants to do is be held and petted and he doesn’t even detest being kissed on his noggin.

Rogercute
In the meantime, Roger, who is so cute you just want to squeeze him constantly, wants nothing to do with me. I pet him and he shirks down. I HATE it when you pet a cat and he does the shirk-down thing. The only time you can really dote on Roger is when he’s sleepy. Otherwise he is a busy executive with no time left for youuuu.

Isocurious This morning, Mr. CEO decided he was interested in where dogs go. It was never interesting before, but today it was. Also, who needs to clean the outside of that door?

Look what in heer? echoos! echoooze! helloooo! watereeng canz fun.

Explore andersin come too, but onlee cause everyone doing it. yes, andersin wood jump off bridge if everyone else doing.

That was about as far as they got before the dogs saw them and chased them back in. The dogs have always been just terrible to any cat in the back yard. Inside? Cats are friends. Outside? We chase cats. Whatever with dog logic.

I must go and get ready, as I do not wish to be late for work two days in a row. On the first day, my house was blowing up. On the second day, I was posting kitten pictures.

Thank goodness Roger has an impressive job, in case I get fired.

At one point, I was sort of hot, in a "she's 27 and probably a 7" kind of a way. Now I'm old and have to develop a charming personality. Guess how that's going.

  1. Roger is insanely cute. No one should be that cute. ALL I WANT TO DO IS KISS ON HIM! But no. He will have none of it. This is probably how every boy in America feels about me. BAHAHAHAAHAHAAA

  2. When I first read “DH” online somewhere, I assumed it meant Damn Husband. I’m still not convinced it’s meant to be “Dear.” But maybe that’s just because I use “Damn” a lot more than “Dear” when referring to my own H.
    The kittens are adorable. It’s good you got one lovebug (Anderson) along with one attitudinal one.
    My dogs do the same thing with my cats: when they’re all inside, best buddies. When the dogs see the same cats outside, the cats are considered prey. Fortunately, I don’t think the dogs will ever have a prayer of catching the kitties.

  4. I like Laurie’s answer for whip! Much more fun than the real one.
    There’s lots of urban slang for the term whip. I’m thinking you are talking about the one that has to do with betting on baseball.

  14. CAROL FROM BAMA…..oh, menopause symptoms! Everyone has to make their own decision about this time in life but I suffered (and I do mean suffered) for two years and then finally gave in and got the patch. Wish I had done it sooner, but I thought I should tough it out and just take herbal remedies which really weren’t helping much though I gave them a good length of time. It’s like knowing Jesus…if it’s good for you, you want to share the info with EVERYBODY! lol.
    Hulk….maybe you’d benefit from the patch too? It alleviates crankiness.

  15. Love the photos of the kitties. Anderson still looks a little thin, did the worm die? Give him some extra food. Our Bubba Cat never wanted to be touched or even spoken to, but if you were eating ice cream he would be all over you with his face in your ice cream bowl friendly. He did love being scratched around his ears and chin.

  16. Amish Annie, just like a fireworks finale, I think the dude just gave it his all and stopped just now. says:

    Isn’t there such a thing as male menopause? Or maybe that’s just a dude’s mid-life crisis.
    Hope everyone’s having a nice, peaceful night because I am not. I have been having to hear the anti-government zealot farmer across the field do his target shooting all night. Seriously one day, the ATF is gonna come swooping in and there’s gonna be another Waco mess or something right here in Amish country, right across the field. Occasionally a dark colored helicopter will fly very, very low (like 20 feet above the ground)over his property, back and forth, back and forth. I assume they’re scanning for weapons but I hope they don’t see these stupid volunteer marijuana plants that we discovered this weekend growing behind the barn. Must buy more round-up.
