I know, I know! I’m hesitant to declare it is so, yet it seems it just may be! Black Beauty, my VW Golf Sportwagen is about to be released to me after five weeks in the shop to repair damage from an accident that happened at the end of a trip my Dutch friend Marianne and I took to the Black Hills of South Dakota.
Whew! That sentence was almost as long as my wait for the return of Black Beauty!
Black Beauty in happier times: Will BB be back in that parking spot by tomorrow afternoon? It looks possible. It’s estimated the final work will be completed by this afternoon. Can’t wait! Living without a car in this area is a difficult thing to adjust to and five weeks without a car is a personal hell.
“I see you!” An uneasy truce. The kitty boys warily share the recliner.
Dougy isn’t happy about it, however.
Same old routine: Dougy on the table, snooping away, and Andy observing naughty kitty behavior from his current favorite box perch….
Nothing new there!
“What?! What?! What?!” Dougy’s upset because Andy’s winking at him!
Dougy settles down to stew about Andy, and Andy settles down to doze off. No wild chase for now!
Dougy notices a hand’s coming his way…
…and he’s OK with that!
G-mail is slow, slow, stopped today for some reason. I am waiting for photos to show up in my g-mail in box, but only one has. If the photos show up while I am at dialysis, I’ll post what I planned for today, today.
Dougy slept soundly while Andy sneaked box time in the new box. Ohhhh! Danger time, Andrew! Dougy came soon after. Andy pretended he was there – next to the box – waiting for kitty treats. Good move, Andy! I had to fork over the loot to complete the deception.
Dougy hopped into the new box, of course. In time – thanks to Andy crunching kitty treats next to the new box – Dougy picked up on the fact that he better get it fluffy butt out of the box if he wanted his share.
Dougy looked and looked and walked right over the treats and looked and found the mother lode of kitty treats, but still didn’t figure out the treats were under his feet for the eating! I even pointed them out to him!
Good grief, Dougy! I even tossed a few in the new box. Andy’s going to be “horking” kitty treats if he eats all I’ve put out for two kitties!
Dougy takes the search to the table – over here, Dougy, over here! – then hops over two packages of kitty treats to get to the floor. I hadn’t intended to trick him out of his treats! He did it on his own.
One gets used to Dougy and his box habits. Of course, he gets piggy about other things, too.
“MY chair..!” says Dougy with a side glance.
“Doug-eeeeeeeee! Doug! Doug! Doug-eeee!” Time to bug Dougy!
“Well, aren’t you a Grumpy Gus when you wake up!?”
Thanks for waking me up numerous times last night, Dougy! Now, go back to sleep.
A sleeping kitty is a temptation…
…I have trouble resisting!
Of course, sometimes the sleeping kitty so charms me I leave him alone!
But sleeping is an important part of being a kitty, so even I try to respect that time they finally prepare for naps. Sort of.
