I am so honored to be chosen as a diary pick.
I could 'hear' Mommy smiling when she held me and told me all about it.
My KatDad was famous too. He was the neighborhood Tom cat and was quite well known. He would break into people's houses all of the time. During the summer he would shimmy through cracked windows and was known to help himself to snacks, water or an occasional nap. The neighbors would put him back out but he always came back. Mommy used to put food out for him every night hoping to catch him but he was so strong he broke out of her traps. She even put him inside of the locked garage in a trap, with a blanket over it and he managed to escape while she was trying to call the vet. Most cats would move on to a new neighborhood but not my Dad.
He loved to peep in the house and sometimes Mommy would be reading a book and would look up and there he would be peeping in the window. Sometimes he startled her. He even peeped in her bathroom window a few times and it's on the second floor.
Mary was not happy with the peeping Tom at all. (Get it peeping Tom)mol.
Mary was MAD!
As far as she was concerned nobody was peeking in her house and getting away with it.
He would come up to the glass door to peep and she would go all wild and berserk. Seriously scary behavior. Scary Mary behavior.
It was legendary.
Even the neighbors heard her screaming one night at him.
So you see fame and infamy is in my blood. One day I have to tell the story about my Dad and the lemon bars.

This must be your first time as a Diary Pick, Renzo? Congratulations! I'm so glad I was intrigued by your great main photo in Diary Central and checked to see what you had to say in your diary. Great diary!
I'll definitely be back to read more whenever you have something to meow -- and I DO want to read about your dad and the lemon bars. I think you're right -- a Pulitzer is in your grasp. Congratulations again!
Concats on DDP Renzo!
way to go!!!
