Ramblings!

Hi friends -
It's hard to believe, but this is going to be a short post mainly to tell you I won't be updating again for about another 4 weeks.  Why you ask?  Well, listen to my woeful story:  (Oh, before I get into all dat - this is a picture of  me napping on the sofa.  The picture in the back my Dad painted. We is quite proud of it.   He did win an award for it in our local art show in the Intermediate category.  He is  not a professional but has been taking oil painting classes at NWTC for about 4 years now.

Now back to my woeful story:

1.  M & D are leaving me again - this time to go camping for 5 days without me.  Oh don't worry too much, My friend Sue will pop in twice a day to love me up a little, feed me, and scoop out de box!   But, I do get so lonely in between times.  She tries to spend as much time as she can with me, but has several special needs kitties to tend to in her own house, and she oversees the daily care and supervision of two mentally-challenged adults living in the other half of her duplex.   So, I guess she's a pretty busy lady, and I am lucky kitty to get her twice a day.  But, I still get very lonesome when I'm home all alone.  (Poor me!)

2.  As if the peeps being gone 5 days isn't enough, the  next weekend after camping  they are going on an overnight trip to see my D's aunt in another part of the state.  Geeeesh - enough with the wondering around already.  Their job is to stay home and entertain me!

3.  As many of you know, I'm on the committee for the AnipalAcademyAwards.  The gala event is going to be the Friday afternoon and evening of July16th for a PreAwards pawty with the main event being held as part of  FrugalDougal's monthly pawpawty on Saturday, July 17th.  The awards part will start about 2 hours after the pawpawty begins..  (Times are tentative yet & will be announced as soon as plans are firmed up!)  Hope you are all coming to this big event cuz it is going to be loads of fun and will keep you laughing.)

Dis is a really exciting time for all committee members and things are really gearing up now.  We has so many very talented anipals on the committee.  I'm just in awe most of the time with what they create and all the work they do.   My job as "Awards Crier" (like Town Crier) keeps me brain and M's fingers pretty busy.  So, my bloggy has to sit in limbo for a few weeks.  It doesn't help either dat my peeps are going to be gone for a total of 7 days.   So, you see, it's really their fault my bloggy gets shoved on the side.

Come back and see me in 4 weeks, if I didn't bore you too much today.

Dis is Mario signing off - finally.

(Note - this was supposed to be a short post.  Well, as usual, I have the "run-on" of the mouth disease!.)

Mario, WTM? Peeps have one job and it's to entertain their anipals and they put themselves first? Hmmmph! You haven't trained them very well. Mine NEVER go away although they used to BC (before cats). That painting is lovely. What week will your peeps be away? Tuna and I will drive the truck over and, er, liberate it while we're keeping you company.

We love that painting on the wall. Your Daddy is very talented! The AnipalAcademyAwards sounds like such a big job!

That is no fairs that M & D leaves you. They should take you wif them but then mebbe being a kitteh you would not like that too much. Mebbe we hikes all over the place (We started out with 1 block too - honestly, I started out going to the end of our driveway and back coz I woz too skeered to leave my howse!) but your M&D goes camping and my mom is so not a camper. She has to has hers electricities and private bafrooms and stuff so to us camping be staying in cabins wot is like home away from home BOL! There be no innerwebs or televishuns so that be ruffing it for my mom.

Oh Mario, we are gonna miss your bloggy whilst your M & D are so busy. You could come stay with us if you'd like. Mama would spoil you like crazy.

Your Dad's painting is really beautiful. He's very talented. Maybe he'll do one of you! That would be amazing.

bebipelucha said...

hello friend, I love that picture:) I do not like you stay home alone. Be a good cat and do not make mischief. I know the cats when left alone are encouraged to explore and look around (so is the instinct cat:))
I love you. Take care friend :)
