This picture pretty much makes me roll on the floor laughing. He is just so dang cute with his big eyes, perhaps questioning why I am sneaking up to take pictures of his posterior. I didn't know the cats still climbed this tree. It use to be the main highway for leaping to the roof, until one of them broke the corrugated plastic, ruining the launchpad/ landing zone. It was also the tree that my clematis was unsuccessful in navigating due to aforementioned usage. But I went outside and heard a little mew of greeting and there was Pheonix for all the world proclaiming the comfort of lying on some nice hard branches.
Cuter than a terd, as CL would say. I appologize for that, but I hold the truth as higher than politeness and courtesy, which are two things I hold very high indeed... truth be told. And the truth is, that's what CommonLaw says. I have no idea how this little saying got started, but it's a pretty daily hearing around here. How cute is Clarence? Cuter than an orange terd! Aaaaand now I have succeeded in disgusting my own self. How's the weather? Hot and stuffy here, a little over 90 today, but it felt hotter. Tomorrow is a holiday ( happy independence day everyone! ) and supposed to be just as hot. I'm sure the parched grasses and draught water limits are an excellent combination with fiery explosions of flames and sparks. :D I got a fresh block of ice today for our "fridge", I'm not sure if any stores will be open tomorrow. For two dollars you can get a 6"x6"x10" chunk of ice that takes almost four days to melt.
There's a parade in town at 10 tomorrow, it might be cool to hike up to the ridge and watch from an eagle's perspective. Contrary to all the crap I get at work, yes, I do leave my "hole" occasionally. My coworkers are so endearing aren't they? Of course, I would only be going out into the back forest, heh heh. And I doubt we will head further out for fireworks, with CL unemployed he can't pay for car insurance and I've mentioned my joy for driving... when I don't... have... to... Anyhoo, thursday shouldn't be too awful at work, monday holidays are USUALLY much worse, but then again, I wouldn't want to build myself up for an unpleasant suprise. Still, come a ten hour day or not, I am going to ENJOY having tomorrow off. Two day weekends are just not long enough. So many kitties to fawn over, so little time.
