Gypsy’s Holiday Post

Hi, readers….this is Gypsy. Since my “step-sisfur”, Sundae, had the spotlight on Monday’s post, Motor Mommy agreed to let me have equal time today.

When Motor Mommy’s friend, Donna, visits our shop, the two of them are often dressed up for an occasion. So Motor Man takes pictures of them, and they always try to include me in the fun.  This was a few weeks ago when they decorated hats for Christmas. (Thank goodness, they didn’t make a hat for ME.)

This was last week when Donna was in town for their “girls lunch”.  And I really wasn’t as unhappy as I appear in this picture. (Miss Donna was disappointed that she left her reindeer antlers in her car…..)

But, as much as I love those two ladies, as you know…

…this is my very favorite place to be.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, EFURRYONE!

Break Time

Hi, efurryone: Sundae here.

And Gypsy, too!

We’re interrupting our hard work rest time to let you know that Motor Mommy is taking a little break from blogging next week.

But, “These Days” will return the following Monday, so stay tuned!

Friday’s Feature: Felines

Our kitties, as well as Marshall’s, have been especially photogenic recently. So today seemed like a good day to share some feline photos.

Sundae has become quite the lap kitty, especially in the evenings. That’s my time to relax in the recliner with the newspaper. A kitty in your lap while reading the paper can be quite a challenge, but we manage.

Meanwhile, shop kitty, Gypsy, is perfecting her position as incoming package inspector. Purrhaps she needs a more stimulating job?

Marshall shared a couple of photos of his kitties with me this week. This is Sibyl, being cute while showing off her unique coloring.

And her “aunt and uncle”, Chessie and Snugg, enjoying a golden hour sun puddle.

Programming note: there isn’t a blog post scheduled for Monday. Have a great first weekend in November and tune in again next Wednesday.

Make Your Voice Heard

Now, doesn’t that sound official?

As I mentioned recently,  it seems that writing my blog sometimes seems like homework “these days”.  I’m contemplating perhaps going to no schedule and just posting at will.

So I thought I’d conduct a little poll, my first ever, I believe. If you would, please select what subject you like to see MOST here on the blog.

 

Hopefully this will give me the little push I need, so that blogging will be more fun than “work”. Writing is easy: it’s the subject matter that’s tough.

Thanks for reading and sharing your opinion.

Monday Morning Mews….Returns

Hi, efurryone….Gypsy here. You remember me….the shop kitty….the boss lady…the one in charge?

Well, I have to tell you that I think Motor Mommy’s blog has gotten pretty boring lately. There just hasn’t been enough about us kitties: Sundae and me. So we’ve  decided to bring back Monday Morning Mews, at least occasionally. Today, I’m sharing some pics of what I’ve been doing lately, just to liven things up a little around here.

First of all, you probably know that Motor Mommy is somewhat obsessed with giraffes (and horses). The other day, this very interesting box was delivered. I couldn’t wait to see what was inside, thinking that it surely should be something for me. But no…it was this silly-looking thing.  (And to add to the humiliation, Motor Mommy couldn’t even take a decent picture of me looking at it.)

And, then there’s this.  Speaking of humiliation:

Once in a while, I just have to be silly to entertain my pawrents.

But, as you know, everything I have to endure is worth it….for this: my favorite place in the world.

My step sis-fur, Sundae, will probably write a post soon, just to keep us kitties in the limelight around here.

Friday, Felines, Fall

Sundae and Gypsy have mentioned recently that they feel that they’ve been neglected on the blog.

So, here’s a picture of Sundae being beautiful on a quilt made by my late Aunt Martha. (If you’ve started following the blog in the past couple of years, you may like to read about how I came to have this quilt.) It’s on the bed in our guest room and it’s one of Sundae’s favorite places to nap. I think she senses that Aunt Martha was a kitty lover.

And Miss Gypsy, in one of her favorite spots….loving up on Motor Man.  When she wants attention from him, she sits on his desk with her back to him, staring at the wall.  No matter how busy he is, he usually caves in. She started this when she was just a kitten, and although she’s five years old, still just wants to be held like a baby. (But only by Motor Manthey do have a special bond.)

Sundae, Gypsy, Motor Man and I wish you a good weekend. And, as we say here in the south: “Happy Fall, y’all!”

Just Kitties

It’s been a while since any of the kitties have been featured here on These Days. And apparently, their little feelings have been hurt. So today, it’s all about the kitties:

One day last week, Motor Man had gotten home before I did. When I walked in, this was the cozy scene:

And Gypsy, enjoying a bag …

…as only a kitty can.

Marshall often shares pictures with me of his three kitties. He said he caught Chessie right in the middle of a good “scratching session”:

This is his kitty, Snugg, who obviously knows when his picture is being taken:

And Screamer, who is also a bit of a “ham”:

Hopefully, the kitties will be happy now with a little time in the spotlight. And I must say that I enjoy posting about them much more than…..(eek) snakes.
