Dougy is tired of posing and being a pretty kitty boy…
Andy’s not pleased taking Dougy’s place. He slips off to the guest bedroom. If I want to get glamour shots of the kitty boys today, I’ll have to be a lot sneakier.
Day before the eclipse…
…I ask Andy what he plans to do during the eclipse since many of you have asked about Andy and Dougy’s plans.
Andy wants to know what an eclipse is, so I explain. Don’t be frightened, Andy, it’s just legend that a big jaguar eats it!
Just in case, Andy will take precautionary measures!
Dougy’s plans are simple.
In the meantime, I should be cleaning since I invited a friend to come to town, perhaps stay overnight to avoid the traffic. The kitty boys pretty much claim the guest bedroom until I have guests, and they leave a mess!
Andy likes to perch here. When the total eclipse occurs on the 21st, what will be his reaction?
The best sources suggest he and Dougy will think it’s night and will have a midday nap!
I will be outside observing it so may never know what the kitty boys are doing, in fact, but “taking a nap” probably covers it pretty well!
I’ll leave the walker by the open front door because Dougy likes to perch there. Who knows? Maybe they will enjoy the sudden drop in temperature, too, being fuzzballs!
Dougy’s anxious. The recliner tends to slide around when I get up or sit down in it. Now it’s a bit too close for Dougy’s comfort.
More to the point, it’s too close when Andy’s perched on his favorite arm of the recliner, and Andy insists on perching there when Dougy’s on his ottoman!
Boys! Boys! Boys! Wait a moment and I’ll push the recliner back so you both can enjoy your favorite furniture.
(Anxiety taken care of.)
What’s up, Andy? Andy has a challenge to meet, but it requires some strategic thinking! He heard someone make noises outside the front door, and it turned out to be the USPS delivery person leaving a box!
He tried to get into the box, of course, even put his front paws inside it before he decided it wouldn’t work for a kitty of his size. (I think it would, but I’m not Andy!)
Since he couldn’t get satisfaction with the box, he came over to me (see the foot?) to get some loving. After some nice “scritches”, I gave Andy kitty treats. He soon forgot the box.
But I didn’t! It held three jars of homemade jams made by my friend Deborah!
Peach-hot pepper, rhubarb-ginger, and blueberry-ginger jams from Maine! I could eat them on just about any type bread, but scones seems like the best bet. I bought the missing ingredients I needed to make the recipe in the morning, knowing the jams were on the way. Not a moment too soon!
Couldn’t wait! I had toasted English muffins with the peach-hot pepper jam for breakfast. Yum! I’m saving the rest for those scones.
Thanks, Deborah! Andy may be disappointed with the box, but I enjoyed your peach-hot pepper jam a lot!
Curiosity is driving Andy wild! These boxes are different and Andy wants to hop right in!
Oh. So Amazon sold me eclipse glasses that could cause me to go blind. Great! I’m getting a credit and don’t have to return them at least.
No time to order glasses that meet the standard, so I go old school and make two pinhole viewers. My friend Craig, who’s coming to town for the eclipse at my invitation, will be surprised since he’s expecting eclipse glasses.
Fortunately, I’ll have the ding-dang thing over my head so no one will recognize me. Whew! Of course, there’s a good chance I will be laughing at the absurdity of it all. You put a box on your head and see what it gets you!
I live right on the path of the North American total eclipse that’ll occur August 21st. I’m ready…if I can keep the kitty boys from hopping in these tantalizing boxes! (I have them up high just in case.)
What will the eclipse look like in your Zip Code area? This popped up on Facebook”
