Get the Boy a map

Theo doesn't know where New Mexico is but he knows it's far enough a way to disrupt his routine.

The Boy in Charge

When the boyz are left on their own, somebody has to take charge. Since Diego-san seems to think he's in charge even when I'm around, I officially delegated the responsibility to him before I left.

My Summer Vacation

I'm off to Santa Fe and Albuquerque. The boyz are on their own for a few daze...

Not a Pretty Sight

Theo doesn't like the look of the suitcase that just got pulled out of the closet...

Weather Update

There was some very loud thunder last night and one particular boom sent both Diego and Theo scrambling for cover. Thompson remained calm and in his favorite cat tree. That surprised me a bit since Thompson can often be the most skittish of the boyz. Maybe he got used to thunder claps during his time as an outdoor kitty many years ago...

The temperature just kept climbing today. It got in the mid-90's and was extremely humid. This isn't weather most people would associate with Minnesota in mid-May. I didn't realize it was going to get so warm so I didn't turn on the air conditioner for the boyz. I think they were concerned that the earth had broken out of its orbit and was hurtling towards the sun...

May Day

It got up to the mid-80's here yesterday and it was rather humid out as well. There was a slight breeze blowing in one of the living room windows so that was a very popular spot to rest...

A Win

My softball team played our first game of the year and we won. This is Thompson's reaction to the news...

Song and Dance Man

Theo often looks at me as if he expects me to do something, to entertain him somehow. I'm not opposed to an occasional song and dance now and then, and I'm constantly jabbering with the boyz but somehow Theo seems to think I should do something bigger, something much more dynamic. I'll have to work on that.

Mr. Piano Man

Diego-San loves to sit upon the piano. I'm not so sure it would be such a favored spot if I ever decided to actually play a song for him.

Best Bedding

I have pillows and blankets, cat beds, and other soft things placed strategically around the house for the boyz to sleep on. No matter what I make available however, Thompson's favorite place is often resting his head on one of his brothers (or me).

A Twin

Diego-san had a burst of energy yesterday and was tearing around the house, in and out of rooms, up and down the stairs. Theo couldn't believe his eyes. He couldn't believe that someone else in this house could possibly have as much energy as he does.

Difficult Choices

Birds singing outside, food being prepared inside... what way is a kitty to look?

I decided to liven things up last night and spent all evening speaking with a French accent. This was Thompson's reaction. Que?

Four Day Weekend

Having completed his 'to do' list on Monday, Diego-san decided to start his weekend today.

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

The Answer

The answer to yesterday's pop quiz was "d." Diego-san and Thompson can't believe/get worn out by the energy their little brother has.

Quick Quiz

It's time to play guess what's down below?

a) Rising flood waters

b) Aluminum foil carpeting

c) A floor being vacuumed

d) A pesky little brother running around like a chicken with his head chopped off...

Manic Monday

This is a picture of Diego-san doing all the things that he needs to get done on this busy Monday...

His Middle Name

Sometimes I think Thompson's middle name should be "Danger." Here we see him playing with dynamite.

What The!*@#?

Theo cannot believe his eyes. It's snowing here in Minnesota...

Snuggle Spot

Thompson is no dummy. Both he and I love Diego-san's soft silky belly. I like rubbing Diego's belly, Thompson prefers burying his face in it.

Snow White Rewritten

If I was to try and re-write Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs with new characters based on my life with the boyz, Diego-san would be Handsome, Thompson would be Soulful, and Theo would be Sweetness. I would be Grumpy.

Reality vs. Reality TV

Diego-san simply doesn't understand why I often think watching the TV is more interesting than watching what is going on outside our front window...

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

Har Har

I stubbed my toe on my futon frame and was cursing up a storm using words the boyz don't often hear. Theo thought the whole incident was HI-LARE-EUS.

Our Kentucky Derby

Every morning, the boyz have their very own version of the Kentucky Derby. Only instead of the "Run for the Roses," the boyz race is called the "Run for Breakfast." I do my best to provide the play by play. My favorite race of all time was the morning Thompson hip checked Theo out of the way and for the only time, won the race. (Diego-san had been disqualified for leaving too early.)

The Saying Goes

April may have come in like a lamb and left even lambier, but the boyz slept through it all so they really didn't care.
