Baby, its cold out there! Meowmy says if you go out now you will freeze off your toes...and we would freeze our ears off, too. It was minus 10 degrees here this morning with a way colder wind chill, Not only were the roads treacherous but a lot of schools had to delay starting, because the buses wouldn't start, MOL! And snow has been falling and blowing around off & on here for 3 days, now...
Want some snow and deep freezer temps? Pipo & I will gladly send them to anyfur...its only zero right now at about 945pm...
Sunday, when meowmy was at work...carrying water cups, with lids... She was taking them to the residents' bathroom to dump them out, only they were almost dumped on the carpet, MOL! Meowmy caught her toe in a wire under a residents' bed, attached to a fall alarm. So she careened across the floor, and stumbled to the bathroom door...where she couldn't keep her balance any longer, and DOWN she went. Kaboom! Miraculously the lids stayed on the cups, and meowmy's knees were not hurt...just her pride was sorely wounded. Both residents had a good giggle at meowmy's expense, and so did the nurse out in the hall who witnessed this incident...well, meowmy got up and finished her work with a furry red face... the funny thing was the fall alarm did not register the fact that someone had fallen...because meowmy only tripped over the wire, not the mat...MOL!
Its a good thing there was no one there with a camera...
At least she didn't do a repeat fall on the ice perfurmance, that was exactly a year ago:( Still feels that wrist with heavier work chores...
Meowmy had to shovel out twice yesterday and once today, to keep up with all the snow(lake effect)...but it is easier work now that we have the concrete, rather than the old gravel and mud ruts.
She was glad to be off yesterday,today and tomorrow. The roads are awful and there have been lots of 'incidents'. The main highway was even closed completely for a while, more than once... today...well meowmy ventured out to get the groceries ...at least the cupboards were getting depleted of fresh items. The kitty treats and food bags are full, so we would have been fine, fur a few more days, MOL!
Today Prince, the neighbors big goat,was trying to get in our yard as he had gotten out of his pen, while his peeps were not home, sigh...poor dude, its amazing that he doesn't freeze to death, but apparently with shelter they can handle it, he sure has a shaggy coat.
He tried to get in meowmy's van when she went out to get groceries, and upon her return he was there again...then he tried to get in when meowmy opened the gate, at least its a 'sally port' (double gated), so she could shoo him out, but he did not want to go! MOL! He appawrently wanted to eat our grass at the fence line...the grass being greener on the other side, you know? MOL! Even though he knows we have a naughty dog-guy....and all the grass is covered in furry cold snow right now...Does anyone want a big goofy, bumbling goat? I do NOT! He tried to eat the contents of meowmy's purse and grocery bags, too...
And now about this table dancing...well meowmy & pawppy did like it, I thought. Sheesh! I want to give them a nice show of my talents, and some loving head bonks, too, the best time fur these activities of course is when they are both my captive audience at dinner time...MOL! Well, now meowmy has gotten out that dreaded squirt bottle to thwart my efforts. OMC! I scuttle away as fast as I can...and wait a bit befur trying again, only to be met with water instead of appawlse, HISS!
So I have to revise my thoughts...I guess they do NOT like it. Sigh...what's a kitty supposed to do?
wow that sure is some COLD!!! temps you got there OMC we would NOT like for you to send us any MOL
so glad only your moms pride was wounded in that fall and that was a cool trick she pulled to keep those lids on.
I don't table dance but Little Boy tries I think he likes to hear mom say "little boy get down!"
OMC, that is cold!!!
Wowza, so much exciting stuff going on at your house, Minko! I wish I had a goat neighbor. I've been bird watching, but I think goat watching would be fun too! We like to dance on the counter - table dancing is especially fun in the middle of dinner - try to put your butt in their face cause they really like that!
You have such interesting things going on there! It's cold at mom and dad's, too.
Oh brrrr, that is cold. I think our coldest was minus 1 a few days ago. I don't dance on tables. I just sit on the dining room table, next to the laptop, warming my feet. Warm air comes out of it and it feels nice on my toes.
Minko, you should try Dancing on the Ceiling. Oh what a feeling. Dancing on the Ceiling. A Lion(el) wrote that song.
