June's stupid life

Untalkative Tuesday

…because someone peed on the mat by the back door WHILE I WAS CLEANING the litterbox. Oh, and then? Pooped on the litter catcher WHILE I WAS TAKING THE MAT OUTSIDE.

Cats for sale!

Here’re the other downtown pictures from this weekend. Make up your own stories about them. Or sip Cold Duck and enjoy them with your smooth jazz.

  1. You’ve really stepped it up in the photography category. I seem to remember WAY back that there were some that were, well, blurry. I think I need a new phone so mine will improve.

  2. That drugstore mosaic tile is giving me feelings. I love that tiny tile and I swoon anytime I see it anywhere.

  3. When I read the beginning of your post, all I could think of was Edsel. I pictured him running around clutching a hanky and saying, “Yuu katz are in big trubble! Bad katz! Yuu make Mom sad!”

  4. I have allergic people who live with me, so no cats. But I remember when my DOG was a PUPPY. Same scenario–I would be cleaning up one accident and Franklin would move a couple feet away and–yep! Another accident. I almost sent him back. I figured out how to prevent this, but, god. Puppies are assholes.

    Those glass balls are so cool! I want some now!

    Lovely post, lovely June!

  5. After my ex took off with the very last cat in the house, I walked over to the litter box, picked up the whole thing and shoved it into a trash can, tied it off, and said, “Never again!” as I walked it out to the curb.

    I absolutely adore cats, had them my whole life, but I was SO done with the litter box, them not peeing in the litterbox, peeing on my rugs, peeing on my couch, and other various urine-related mind-games that those adorable little fuzzballs like to play. You’re a trooper!

    Love the pics of your downtown! It looks like something out of a quaint downtowny-type movie.

    1. Oh no way. Yes I would be done too. My best friend in college had a male cat that made sure to ‘whiz on the heater’ (I’ve never had anyone else use the term whiz so consistently. This guy was the funniest friend.) every day so the smell would easily fill the whole house. It would kind of make you gag to walk in there.

  6. I am VERY curious about that book too. I love animals but I am too selfish to want to clean up their poop. I just enjoy my friend’s dogs when I can.

  7. I have a whole basket full of those glass balls. I can’t resist them when I see them. In the spring I take them out and hang them in my yard and collect them again in the fall and bring them back in. Like some weird glass harvest.

    I love your town! Imagine being so sure of your business that you would tile your name on the sidewalk. That’s solid.

    Lovely post old lover! Although we aren’t 60 yet, we’ll get there.

    1. Oh ya Let me tell you about 60! You are fifty and all – you know… eeek…. and then all of a sudden you are – 70 and all you can say is… “what the hell! ” But it’s what it is… life… all good

  8. I love your photos of downtown. It reminds me of my home town when I was growing up.
    Now there are only two blocks in the old part with any interesting stores. The remaining blocks are empty storefronts and hookers hanging around the post office.
    Don’t ever change, Junetown.

  9. After carefully reading this post I went back and scrolled through the pictures more quickly and enjoyed the color palette and noticed you save the best for last. Lovely post.

  10. So, it looks like downtown G’boro doesn’t have parking meters??? Wow, cause here in the Polar Vortex Tundra we have those stick meters, you have to use your card, not even real quarters, and then you only/mostly get two hours. I won’t be window shopping anywhere outside this week. Also, love the drugstore entry tiles.

          1. It’s great that you all have that. Paying for parking (especially downtown Mpls) is pretty pricey. I like to do the stroll thing (though not this week). That red dress is pretty swank!

  11. Love your downtown shots! I need to come up and shop in Greensboro sometime. We are almost due for our annual visit. I say that at it has been almost a year since we had our impromptu visit. 🙂

    1. Oh my god, it has. Last time we saw each other was St. Patrick’s Day. That’s absurd. I do still have the t-shirt from last year, though.

  12. I am late to the game from yesterday but my Grandfather said, he would climb a tree to tell a lie, I found out recently that his brother said in response to that, he would swim though a river of $hit to tell a lie and he can’t swim…. In other words, I come from a long line of liars so both could be made up. Another one, who wants to earn half a buck. And he had high hopes for us, he taught us how to ask for bread and water in Italian in case we were ever in an Italian prison I guess???

  13. You just made me glad my cat walks in circles when she needs/wants to go outside. The down side? It unbelievably stressful when she disappears for days, makes me want to drag out the litter box. I don’t know if Trudy would use one, I have one in the basement and she acts like she doesn’t know it’s purpose. She is the only cat I have ever seen that paws when she is drinking water. Obviously, she’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    I loved all the photos, especially the entrance to Fordhams.

    1. That was my favorite photo as well. My cat goes outside and we have a litter box in the basement that he doesn’t use unless we are out of town. What are we twins?
