Sleeping With The Cat

Got up, showered and dressed. Coffee on the sofa and the cat jumps up on my lap. Pretty soon I’m laying on my back with the cat on my chest, purring. I could have slept for hours with a cat on my chest.

I’m going to try and remember being in that place. It was a good place!

Dang!

The wife has been gone almost 24 hours, I couldn’ get to sleep last night and I woke up early this morning.
Sheba’s depressed, I’m depressed, and the cat, well, she seems OK.

Over the hump this week, almost. Work has been OK lately, as far as work goes. (hope I didn’t jinx it). The weather has been good, all is well.

I can’t tell the days are getting longer yet, by the time it gets light enough for me to post my post, it’s time for me to go to work, so…

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

First Post Of 2016!!!

Focus on the good, not the bad! (my original title was “First Workday of 2016”.)
Today’s going to be a hot, sunny day and I’m going to the beach at lunchtime! It’s early morning and Crux is high in the sky.
Here’s some pics from the long weekend:

My visiting Navy friend Jeff at East End.

My brother in law’s sidewalk marker for diving each and every East End dive site. This is MUCH more prestigious than an actor  having a star on the sidewalk in Hollywood.

The first sunset of 2015, there was also a green flash.

And a new, experimental collage, made using my phone! ☎

Have a good day, a good week, and a good year!

One Day & A Wakeup! Plus A Long Ramble

Tomorrow we go to Mexico! I don’t even know why I’m even bothering going to work today!

It was  a 50/50 weekend.

We didn’t go to a wedding on Saturday, we’re going to a wedding in Mexico.

The wife worked Sunday, she came home with sandwiches, she accidently gave me the wrong sandwich, I ate it. She got super super mad at me for not noticing. I was watching American football, not paying attention along those lines, her sandwich was completely different than mine. I should have noticed. One time at Subway, I ordered a chicken sandwich. I ate it and it was excellent. After that, the worker came up and asked me if my sandwich had chicken on it. I said I don’t know, but it was excellent. They found a piece of chicken in the  microwave and figured it was supposed to go in my sandwich. I thought and thought, but couldn’t remember if there was chicken in my sandwich or not. But I remember it was good. the other day we went to a restaurant, I ordered a beef sandwich. I was terrible. Tasted like charcoal, literally. The manager came over when I was almost done, and asked how everything was, I said terrible, tastes like charcoal. She gave me a weird look, ’cause I was woofin’ it down. I said “Hey, you asked”. I have these two teeth that gets food stuck between them. When I got home and jammed a toohpick between those teeth and got out the hunk of meat from that sandwich I could taste it again. It was terrible tasting.  Charcoal. I don’t care about food. Eating and sleeping are wastes of time, and if I didn’t have to do them, I wouldn’t.

Football-wise his weekend was opposite of last weekend. Almost all my teams lost. And the Redskins got hammered like they hammered last week.

Did you ever see the movie “The Matrix”? Where the cat walks by twice and Neo says “Whoa, deja vu”? It’s hapening to me, our cat, Ashy, keeps walking by. She’s doing laps, in the laundry door, through the kitchen, out the dining room door to the back porch and under my table. Again and again, like the Matrix movie.

Let me out of here, I gotta go to work.

Have a good week, I might not post tomorrow, I’ll be going to the airport.

Cat Problems

Yesterday Evening Ashy, our new indoor cat, jumped off the balcony, 12 feet to the ground.

There’s no way she could getback up if she wanted to.
We found her outside, apparently enjoying herself, as she ran away several times when I tried to pick her up.

The Wife is very upset. She’s wanted a grey cat named Ashy as long as I’ve known her. We either have to close all the windows and doors and run the AC, or worry constantly about Ashy running away. The Wife is talking about finding a new home for Ashy. This would also devastate the wife.

Half our living area is outdoor porch and we can’t keep Ashy prisoner.

It’s a delimma with no happy ending in sight.

Thursday Thoughts

image

It’s Thursday. Two days till the weekend. It seems like only the first five days after the weekend are the hardest though. That’s good….

The wife gets back from Miami today at about noon.

Yesterday morning Ashy the cat had disappeared. I looked everywhere and could not find her. I called the wife to give her the bad news. while I was on the phone I found the cat in the closet behind the clothes hanging on the hangers. (see above picture) Ashy still hasn’t approached Sheba yet. Sheba wants to be friends.
I have never seen a dog that has such empathy as Sheba. She seems to know how others feel.

This morning at 4:30 we had quite a strong storm. I should say microstorm. Very strong winds and very heavy rain for about 10 minutes.

Wish me luck at work today because I anticipate a rough day.
