Let It Rain

While I am not thrilled with the temperature drop, I am happy we will be getting some much needed rain. My green beans need rain to grow, so I'm good with staying indoors a day. lol 
When Mom goes out to do yard work, I follow her until it gets too hot (for both of us). I know she will probably decide to clean inside but that's okay. I'll hide on the sofa like I usually do.

Once Upon A Time

I used to make mom hold me while she was blogging. Now, she tells me she loves me and puts me down on the floor. Sheesh! That's not love! But seriously, she is trying to update her karate "Bible" and she has notes galore spread all over the floor. (And she won't let me play on them or sit on them.) Okay, mom, I'll let you have a couple of hours of computer time, then your lap is MINE!

PlusOne, My Hero!

Why is he my hero, you ask? I'll tell you why. Because when he came home Monday night he went right upstairs and put his air conditioner in. Which made mom put hers in. (Which meant I slept well Monday night.) And last night when mom came home, he had brought up both the air conditioners for the living room, and helped mom put them in. (Which meant we could watch TV in air conditioned comfort.)
So that's why he's my hero! Mom and Dad's too, actually. lol

Wordy Wednesday

The hot and humid weather has arrived. Pardon me while I bask in the air conditioning.

Mom, PlusOne & the pretty girl (PlusOne's girlfriend) watched Interstellar Sunday night. Pretty girl described it as "trippy". Mom agrees completely. I won't give any spoilers, but Mom said she would never do what Matthew McConaughey's character in the movie did. PlusOne said he would bring Lucky into space. THAT would be funny to see, a gravity free Lucky floating around the space station, grabbing any food that passed her by (oh wait, that's me) anyway, it would be funny.

Happy Memorial Day

Memorial Day was celebrated on May 30 for decades, but in 1971, Congress established Memorial Day as the last Monday in May and a federal holiday.

• Memorial Day originally honored military personnel who died in the Civil War (1861-1865).

• Roughly 620,000 Americans died in the Civil War — making it the deadliest war in American history. About 644,000 Americans have died in all other conflicts combined.

• President Bill Clinton signed the National Moment of Remembrance Act on Dec. 28, 2000, designating 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day as a National Moment of Remembrance.

• It wasn't always Memorial Day — it used to be known as Decoration Day.

• Red poppies are known as a symbol of remembrance, and it's a tradition to wear them to honor those who died in war.

• Even though Memorial Day began as a holiday honoring Union soldiers, some states still have Confederate observances. Mississippi celebrates Confederate Memorial Day on the last Monday of April, Alabama on the fourth Monday of April, and Georgia on April 26. North and South Carolina observe it on May 10, Louisiana on June 3 and Tennessee calls that date Confederate Decoration Day. Texas celebrates Confederate Heroes Day on Jan. 19 and Virginia calls the last Monday in May Confederate Memorial Day.

• The crowd that attended the first Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery was about the same size as those that attend today's observance: about 5,000 people

• Here are the number of casualties in each U.S. war:
Civil War: Approximately 620,000 Americans died. The Union lost almost 365,000 troops and the Confederacy about 260,000. More than half of these deaths were caused by disease.
World War I: 116,516 Americans died, more than half from disease.
World War II: 405,399 Americans died.
Korean War: 36,574 Americans died.
Vietnam Conflict: 58,220 Americans died. More than 47,000 Americans were killed in action and nearly 11,000 died of other causes.
Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm: 148 U.S. battle deaths and 145 non-battle deaths.
Operation Iraqi Freedom: 4,422 U.S. service members died.
Operation New Dawn: 66 U.S. service members died.
Operation Enduring Freedom: 2,318 U.S. service members have died as of May 12, 2014.

Hallo! My name is Inigo Montoya

PlusOne's girlfriend had NEVER seen The Princess Bride. Neither had her BFF, so PlusOne hosted a "Princess Night" (short for Princess Bridge night). There were 9 kids and they had popcorn and brownies. The parents of one of the friends thought that a boy SHOULDN'T have a Princess Night party and nearly didn't let their daughter come. Hasn't like the whole WORLD seen this movie, and be able to finish the quote "Hallo, my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die!"

If it's nice today, then mom will work in the yard. And if mom works in the yard, then she lets Lucky and me sit with her. Ahhhh, almost nothing I love more than soaking up sunbeams!

Try Not To Laugh Too Hard

PlusOne received a Certificate of Excellence award because "he exemplifies the core values of Family and Consumer Sciences."
In PlusOne's words, because of his mad baking skills!

Mom and Dad thought it was pretty cool, and (to be honest) funny. He told Dad he took baking because he wanted to eat during school. The truth is he likes to cook and wanted to be better at it. Apparently he is!

Wordy Wednesday

Mom and Dad got a letter from the school saying PlusOne was receiving an award today. Only, no one (including PlusOne) knows what it is for! lol
(Mom is hoping it comes attached with money for college)
Mom promises to let everyone know what PlusOne did that got him an award.

The More Things Change

The more they stay the same. Lucky and PlusOne STILL cuddle up together after 12 years.

Monday, May 18, 2015


Several of you already know what this is like, but mom had to laugh when she saw it. And she had to share it with you. It was a moral imperative. lol

PlusOne lost his clean boxers because they were nice and warm from the dryer. lol

Tattle Tale Tuesday

PlusOne posted a beautiful comment about Mom for Mother's Day.
Happy Mothers Day to the one woman who can stand being in the same room with me for eight hours and not kill me. The one I can always count on to love and support me through anything life has to offer. I won't make such a wild statement like "She's the best mom in the world." But it would be true.

Mom really liked it. A lot!

Monday, May 11, 2015


It was close to 90 degrees yesterday. It was HOT HOT HOT. I think Memere was correct. We are not having spring, we're jumping right into summer! Better get that air conditioner in, Mom!

That Time Again

Mom is doing planting today. YEAH!!!

Sunny Saturday

Yesterday was sunny, but the temperature dropped from the 80's down to the 40's by night time. It's supposed to be warm again today so Lucky and I are not worried. Especially since there really is NO chance of snow. lol

Finally Friday

I love the weekends, I get lots more snuggle time with Mom, Dad and PlusOne! Oh yeah, and Lucky, lol.

I Am NOT Complaining

But jumping from 40's or so to high 80's is QUITE a change. A nice change, but a big change nonetheless. Memere told Mom we weren't going to have spring this year, that it was going to go straight into summer. I think Memere was correct. I am NOT complaining mind you, ESPECIALLY after this past winter. I'm just saying.

Say WHAT?!?!

So, there's Mom, in the ladies room at the movie theater right before seeing the Avengers, when this young man walks in, goes past her, and heads to the handicap stall.
 "Excuse me, do you work here?" Mom asked.
"No," he replied, looking at her like she needed her head examined.
"Then get out of the ladies room!" She told him.
"I'm in the ladies room OMG I didn't even notice this was the ladies room." He said.
There was another woman in there as well. After he walked out, the other lady said "He didn't know he was in the ladies room, what does that say about us?" lol

I Get To Eat MORE!!!

I used to weigh 18 pounds. Then I dropped down to 16 pounds. Last year I was 15.4 pounds. This year I was 13.6 pounds. Dr Loves-me-alot said mom could feed me more. Lucky too, as she dropped from her usual 12 to 11 to 9.6 pounds.
I TOLD you mom was starving us! Now will someone believe me when I tell you she's working us to the bone as well!!!!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

That's okay mom, you, Dad and PlusOne can go see The Avengers; Age Of Ultron, as long as you let Lucky and I sleep in this sunbeam. Deal?

The V-E-T

Mom is taking us to the V-E-T today for our annual checkup. I am NOT amused, thank you very much. Even though Dr. Loves Me A Lot loves to see me, it doesn't mean I want to see HIM and get my blood stolen, my bum probed and my teeth checked. YUK!
