The Things I Put The Boyz Through

I'm having my cement steps replaced. When I came home yesterday the demolition part was done.  I'm guessing it might have been a noisy process.  This might explain some severe glares I got when I opened the door.

Sun Screen

Theo is trying to protect Thompson from too much glare. He's such a thoughtful brother.

I informed Diego-san that if he lets go of the wall the whole house is going to come down.  It appears for once, he listened to me.

Not Sure I Need the Help

Theo is an expert at finding things and places that need cleaning in our house.

Substitute Resting Place

I told Thompson I'd prefer him lying like this on my chest rather than on the pillow.  He ignored me.  Sigh.

Our Lil Einstein

Theo ran into a little issue the other day.  Diego-san came into the kitchen to see what the strange noises were. Upon seeing Theo he decided there was nothing unusual and just continued on his stroll to the basement.

I mentioned to Theo that he probably shouldn't try this when I'm not home.

Sharing the Same Experience

I swear whenever I go to a concert I end up seated or standing in front of the most annoying person in the entire crowd: the person who needs to talk during the entire show or loudly sings along drowning out the actual singer.  Diego-san feels the exact same. He thinks he ended up next to the most annoying cat in the entire house for my guitar practice.

Thompson must've missed the memo that there's a stretch break during nap time.

Monday, September 21, 2015


Diego-san and I were having a stare off which I guess technically he won because I broke eye contact to pick up my phone to get the contest recorded.  Video bonus: at the very beginning Diego-san lets his voice be heard...

Conflicted Look

Whenever I leave the house I try to let the boyz know where I'm going and how long I'll be gone.  This pic was taken the other night when I was off to my weekly guitar lesson.  I think Thompson's look is a combination not caring at all what I was telling him and being concerned about exactly what the protocol would be if I wasn't back in time for dinner...

Cross the Paws

Diego-san is nervous that he can't possibly be any more relaxed.

Theo's Day

Lap time precedes nap time which precedes crap time which is followed by tap time and then more lap time.

Sight for Sore Eyes

I got two bits of extremely difficult news Sunday night.  I came upstairs to see this... I don't think I need to explain how it made things seem a bit more bearable again...

Seasonal Practice?

It has noticeably gotten cooler, positively fall like, in our neck of the woods. This is Thompson's curl up as tightly as possible sleep position that helps use as much self-heat as possible. Usually he deploys it during the wintertime.  I hope the early deployment doesn't mean a long cold winter...

One and Only

This is the last Theo and me selfie you'll see.  The boyz don't like it when I use up their valuable photo space with pictures of my noggin. I think Theo is quite convincingly conveying that here...

A Vote for the Status quo

I did some slight rearranging of my bedroom which freaked out the boyz. Diego-san eventually got spiritual and looked up above to why life's normalcy was disrupted.

Big Bird

Theo's project for the day was to develop his bird imitation. To do so, he decided he needed to build a nest underneath our coffee table.

Breathlessly Waiting

Diego-san thinks that dental hygiene is very important.  Just not his.  Our attempts at brushing his teeth have not gone very well. Still he makes sure I brush my teeth every night.

Sunday, September 06, 2015


Theo is thinking about various options in case someone asks him if he knows anything about the body lying in front of him.

Today's Job

Theo is hoping that if he's patient Diego-san's food dish will magically replenish itself.

Goof Off

I don't think Diego-san is aware that Thompson is behind him trying to give him some funny bunny ears for the picture.

He's Da Man

They're painting a mural of Mr. Dylan on a building in downtown Minneapolis close to the Twins stadium.  Of the Twin Cities I have always favored St. Paul but now I just may have to admit Minneapolis is more cool. I'm not sure the boyz would like downtown living though...

I'm not sure I've ever seen Theo snoozing this deeply.  Must've been a long day of play.

Help Wanted

Diego-san clearly thinks it's time we hire a maid to do some cleanup.
