Priorities, Man

Diego-san was more interested in giving me the evil eye than he was watching the Muppet Show.

Two Out of Three Ain't Bad

Theo was practicing the part of the Big Bad Wolf from Little Red Riding Hood. He definitely got the big ears (better to hear you), and the big eyes (better to see you) down, but his teeth are tiny and probably wouldn't scare Little Red Riding Hood much.

Good Question

Thompson wonders why every weekend can't be a four day weekend.

Good Help is Hard to Find

Diego-san was going to point out to the cleaning guy that he missed something but that would probably mean the big old noisy sucking machine would have to make a reappearance...

Premium Seats

Diego-san tried to scalp his ticket to me but I passed. So he was the one who got to enjoy the front row to all the action.

Happy Thanksgiving

Among many other things, Thompson is thankful he has many comfortable places to lay his head.

Reporting for Duty

We got our first snowfall over the weekend. It was just enough snow that I felt obligated to shovel the public sidewalk in front of my house. As I was preparing to go outside, Diego-san was being extra needy of attention so I told him I could use a little help shoveling and suggested I let him go outside and swish his impressive tail around to clear the snow. I certainly couldn't lose him in the snow given his color.

As I went to the front door Diego-san hopped up on the bookcase next to the door as if to indicate he was willing to try what I suggested. Alas, I changed my mind and decided it probably wasn't a good idea to use him as my snow swisher.

Math Tutors

The boyz decided to help me with my geometry by showing me what a cat triangle looks like.

A Personal Trainer

Thompson wants to emphasize the importance of regular neck exercises. First you look one way, then you turn your head the other way. Repeat and zzzzzzzzzzz.......

I told Theo there was a mouse by the computer. Hard as he tried, he just couldn't find it...

We All Agree

Thompson's thinking the fella on the other side is pretty darn good lookin.

Mr. Know It All

Diego-san's secret for knowing EVERYTHING that goes on in the house? He keeps one ear to the ground.

Planning for the Future

Theo's practicing his behind the wheel driving position for the day I let him take driver's ed.

Misleading Caption

Thompson is questioning how he got the title, 'cat scratcher.' He said he doesn't itch any more than the other two boyz.

Life on the Other Side of the Tracks

Life is so hard for Diego-san. It's hard to know which of the twenty choice spots in the house to rest in ; it's hard to choose whether to lie sunny side up, or over easy; it's hard to choose whether to try and steal Thompson's dinner or Theo's dinner after he finishes his own. Sigh.

This is the second day in the current month where Thompson feels it is appropriate to try and be one with the world.

The Real Celebration

Somebody in the house is having a birthday but Diego-san thinks that is irrelevant and it's one more day everybody should lavish praise on him.

A By the Book Type of Fella

Thompson thinks all this fall back spring ahead stuff is nonsense. A schedule is a schedule after all.

Making Do

Since I won't let Theo play around inside the dryer, he decided spinning around in the clothes hamper was the next best thing.

Sunday, November 06, 2011

Nice Try

I had to tell Diego-san it might help to put the seat up first.

Unscheduled Solitary Napping

That food guy had to work today. It's Saturday. This is unacceptable.

Trick I Guess

I came home from work last night and greeted the boyz with a hearty "trick or treat!" They didn't seem at all amused given the trauma they felt they were forced to endure Monday evening.

Honorary Band Member

Theo's wondering why I don't buy him one of those fancy red jackets that Mayer Hawthorne and his band are wearing...

Tuesday, November 01, 2011


Given today's date, Thompson decided it would be a good day to be one with the world.
