I checked the delivery status while at work yesterday and saw that it had been delivered. When I got home I didn't see the box anywhere so I asked the boyz if they had seen my underwear. This brought puzzled looks from all three... Diego-san's stare indicated he thought I should first be checking underneath my clothing; Thompson's stare indicated annoyance for the times I don't always get my clothes in the hamper and leave them on the floor in plain sight; Theo's stare indicated that he was up for this new game of 'look in new places for underwear.' Oh the fun we all have....
P.S. the delivery guy left the box in the side door.

Country kitty turned metropolitan cat, Willow was discovered by a pedestrian on East 20th Street in Manhattan over the weekend and brought to Animal Care and Control of NYC, according to Julie Bank, the animal shelter's executive director.
Willow tested positive for a microchip, and her Colorado owners, Chris and Jamie Squires, were later contacted, according to Bank.
"Willow is in good health, kind of chunky," Bank said. "Clearly she has been taken care of or enjoying the New York City food."
How Willow traveled from Broomfield, Colorado, a suburb of Denver, to New York -- a distance of more than 1,600 miles -- over a span of five years is a mystery.
"Someone maybe picked her up in Colorado and brought her here; sometimes animals get here oddly, like on the back of a truck," Bank said. "Some people are joking that she is a city girl and wanted to see the sights."
Calls to the Squires were not immediately returned.
As for Willow, plans are being made for her to reunite with the Squires, Bank said.
For now, she will stay with a foster family until health certificates are filed and she can make the journey back home, though perhaps not as memorable as her travels to the Big Apple.

If you turn up the sound to this video, you can hear two things: a Kris Kristofferson song playing in the background and Diego-san deeply purring. I also like the ending of the video- a mrrrow and a big tails up... I just hope the deep purr doesn't mean Diego prefers Kristofferson's music more than mine.

He did mention to me how 11 people left him birthday messages back in August and Thompson got a much appreciated record for this blog 17 posts the other day (not that he's counting). I pointed out I forgot to mention Theo's designated birthday at all last June...

Sure enough a car pulled out of one of the driveways somewhat near to me so I slowed down. It was a good thing I did because right after that happened a deer bolted across the road. I was still probably going between 20-30 mph but because I had already started hitting my brakes I was able to slow down quicker than I otherwise would have. I was so close to the deer that I could have reached out and touched him, or he could have kick boxed me into the next county.
Let's just say I prefer my morning coffee as a way to wake up rather than a near collision with a deer and corresponding increase in the old heart rate...
