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.

 

 

                                                                   

 

 

 

Artsy Fartsy Caturday with Kali

MOL, it’s my turn for artsy Caturday and I told mom exactly what I wanted.  She of course obliged my every whim.  Sure she did furry face, *rolls eyes*.  More than likely she agreed to shut you up.  Well, maybe Shoko but you could be nicer about the whole thing.

SHOKO—–BLACK
KALI—–ORANGE

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty is having the Caturday artsy lineup.  Click on the name and go see your buddies enduring the effects of their mom’s creativeness.                                                                       

Here is the picture we started with.                                                                    Notice the bubbles lightening my load.

This is what we ended up with thanks to Lunapic.                                                                    Egads, the artsy me looks like a monster!  I think the first one is better mom.

What’s that saying Shoko?  You mean:

“SOMETIMES YOU’RE THE WATER….SOMETIMES YOU’RE THE TUB”


Tomorrow is the Kentucky Derby at Cat Scouts.  Kali and I are going with our boyfriends.

I think Classic Empire will win and Kali thinks McCracken will win.  I wonder if our choices will  win.                                                                   

Interesting eh?  If you want to see more, join Cat Scouts…it’s FREE.

 

Memories of a Northern Winter

C’mon Kali, let’s blow this joint.  Why?  It’s nice and cozy in here.  We need the fresh air blowing in our furs.  The wind is terrible.  I want to be warm.  Ok, so it’s cold.  How cold is it, Shoko?  It’s so cold the snowman has rosy cheeks!

Do you remember the time mom was out shovelling off the deck and then came in to have a hot bath?                                                                             aamomsnow

Boy, do I ever. MOL The hot water on her cold butt was not relaxing….she said it was so painful and she was fussing about. MOL. She learned to get herself a little wet with warm water before leaping into a hot tub.  Experience is a great teacher.

You’re too young to remember mom with the old Taurus but she had trouble plugging the car in so dad got her a light that would turn on when the car was plugged in.  You mean sorta like a plug-in for idiots?  MOL…exactly.

Ohhh, what about the time Cow Kitty’s dad left his truck on the street and the snow plough came along and blocked him in.  The snow was deep that year.  It was so funny watching him dig his car out,,,he used words we can’t say…..at least when mom’s looking. MOL

C’mon sis let’s get some air….ok, lead on Shoko.

aakalishoksnowsmI’m going into a nice warm heat register.  It’s too cold for me.  Leave me some room on that warm heat register….I’ll just *sniff*, *sniff* this patch of dirt.    Make room for moi….coming through.                                                             aaakalitoy                                                                    aashoksleepMuch better….I feel like a princess again instead of a pioneer braving the elements.  Not that again, Kali.  Go to sleep.

What’s worse than snowing cats and dogs?
A: Hailing taxi cabs!
