Thankful Poetic Thursday at Fort Meezer

Look at us mom….we’re sittin’ pretty in our own space.

I have the top tier. There is nothing I miss. Any flea ridden introoders are toast. This time of year hardly anyone walks down the street but those monsters with rounded wheels keep coming.

SHoko doesn’t care who’s outside unless they’re in her yard. Budd doesn’t bother with scary outside. He is on the look out for anyone eating.

I’m mewing for everybody to get out and enjoy the sun before it snows again.

This is so invigorating, eh Budd? What do you mean you’ve had enough? You just came out.


That’s it Shoko. Woah, it’s pretty bright. Your eyes are watering. Well. we’re not used to the sun so bright. It’s a wonder we don’t all run and hide from that big ball in the sky. mol

What’s this I see?  Is it a bug…..in this weather?  Oh no!                                                               

It has 6 heads and a dime on his nose! His arms are everywhere…..a monster! Run!


I’m stayin’ right here out of its way. What an ugly creature! It was a mouse? Mice aren’t that ugly. It doesn’t have 6 heads and there is no dime on his nose…..he has some snow on his face. I think Budd’s calling me inside….

Excuse these two for they know not what they do
They are stuck to each other with crazy glue
The man is aware only of the weight he has to bear
While the lady is drunk as a skunk with not a care
Lady in blACK struggles to remain standing upright
The guy looks conceited and the  woman is very uptight
While her leg points upwards to give her balance.
Giving me a chance to wonder is this a dance?

MOL…this was fun. Thanks Angel Sammy and Teddy for the chance to express myself.

TYEBE…..POWDER BLUE
SHOKO…..CINDER BLACK

 

Hippity Hoppity Onwards To Harrods

 

It’s time for the Hop On /Off bus.  Off they go to hop off at Chinatown and walk up to Covent Garden.

Dad jumped on the bus and went upstairs to the deck on top. Mom looked at the stairs and figured she’d keep the bus driver company.                                                   

They got off at Chinatown and saw a pub that called to them.

They had to go inside and see all the slugs.  Rip off!  There were no slugs but a delicious bottle of Light Pepsi waited for them.

 

Off they went to Covent Garden.  They had to see where James Bowen and Streetcat Bob had been busking the Big Issue magazine.  Since those times James and Streetcat Bob have accomplished a lot.  These two former street guys are financially secure and can buy stuff they never ever thought they could at one time.                                                                               

The next stop for mom and dad was Harrods.                                                             The first stop was the food halls and specifically the different fancy teas.

Mom was in her glory and bought Harrods Tea….Afternoon Blend                                                                       Then it was over to the food halls for a peek at the fancy foods.                                                                           Mom saw a sandwich she just had to have.  It was two pieces of rye bread with butter, a cooked thinly sliced beet, smoked salmon, cut thinly and a few bean sprouts on top.  The sandwich was cut in fours…just the way mom likes.  Mom offered half to dad, who wrinkled up his nose but mom insisted as they should always be open to new ideas.  Dad took a quarter and loved it so much he ate the other quarter.

Mom wanted to buy something from Harrods other than just the tea, so decided to buy some perfume.  It cost more than the ready cash they had.  So dad would have to pull out more loot.  Dad disappeared to stand alone by a wall so he could get at his money belt.  A store security man went over and told him there was none of that in this store.  The security man thought dad was playing with himself….what a hoot!  Dad had to explain what he was trying to do without turning red  with embarrassment. MOL                                                               After purchasing the perfume our travellers went back to the hotel with their treasures.

Mom explained to dad that she needed her furs washed but the sink was as big as her face.  Dad said never fear, he will help.  So dad shampooed and used conditioner on mom’s fur.  Trouble is he didn’t get all the soap and conditioner out…a very difficult task.  So mom happily was walking around with a half pound of shampoo in her fur.  I sound like Shoko don’t I?  Let’s get the drama queen in here to explain the next chore of moms.  Thanks Kali.  Mom told dad she needed a bath also but the bathtub was too deep, she couldn’t step into it.  The bathtub was an old-fashioned tub but with handrails on each side of the tub.  The back didn’t go straight but was more like a slide.  A funny looking tub to mom.  Dad helped mom and she slid down the back of the tub and landed with a plop….kinda hard on the butt she said.  Yet here she was with water and soap. The inside of the tub was indented the shape of her legs and butt.  There was a problem because of these indentations she couldn’t lift her swollen legs  but the water felt so good.  A helping paw from dad and she was out and never wanted back in ever again. MOL

So sorry about the quality of the photo…think mom had too much tea before shooting the picture.   Do you see the grooves?                                                                    Well shampoo head and her mate, Helpful Harry, drifted off to sleep very quickly.

 

Next installment involves a train ride up country.

 

 

                                                                   

 

 

 

The Stroller Tryouts

Git away from me, mom.  I don’t want to ride in that box on wheels!  Kali doesn’t look very interested either.  What are you doing….throwing Island Paradise into the box?  You can get them Kali.  I have a feeling mom is going to trap one of us in there.

Ok, get out now Kali…run like the wind.  You’re too late…mom’s moving the box.                                                             akzmstrWhoa, Kali is refusing to sit down!  She does not look happy.

aksmAre you ok Kali?  I don’t like this a bit Shoko.  There are nice comfy blankies here but I don’t like the movement.  Let me out!  Mom’s heading for the bed so you can jump off.  Geez if Kali doesn’t like it……I gotta wonder!                                                          ashstrWaiting for it to seem strange …..nothing’s happening.  Kali, this is kinda fun.  I don’t have to walk, I’m just rollin’ along and its comfy.                                                            ashzmcrOh, it looks interesting over this way mom.  C’mom step on the gas…I wanna see what’s happening.                                                     ashcrWell, paint me yellow and call me a cab, I really enjoyed the spin around the inside of the house. No fuss, just a sweet ride with blankies that feel so comfy on my tush.  I must rethink the idea that pet strollers are bad.                                                                              Kali and Shoks
