When meowmy checked her e-mail early this morning, she saw that I was a DDP!
So now I have been collecting way more hearts! Thanks to all of you!
There sure is lots of love going on here.
So hearts and DDP is a great combo in my opinion...
I had a great day, starting by helping meowmy to read the newspaper, by sitting on it, afterall aren't I newsworthy today? MOL!
The sun even sent me long lasting sunpuddles to while away relaxing hours, while the furmily was at church.
Meowmy also made the observation that it has been a whole week now since those awful storms, and here we have had lots of sun, warm weather and NO rain! Perhaps there will be begging for rain...but not anytime soon, pawlease!
Purrs and love to all! ♥ ♥ ♥

On behalf of Pipo & the page of We Bees Siamese, I wish to thank all the kitties, and yes a pup or two that have been sending all of us gifts in the form of those cute kitty hearts, to 'Share the Love'!
It is fun to receive them and read the loving messages inside them too.
It is fun to send out our own, too, MOL!
We hope that this 'freebie' hangs around for a while longer!

Well the town we live near is doing major cleanup patrol! What a mess!
Hopefurly they will be having the power back on in a day or two, because with the heat we are having, I am sure they would like to get the AC's back on.
So many trees down, pulled out of the ground as if someone was just pulling up weeds! OMC!
Well the fur-eign pup was here. He woofed his way in yesterday afternoon.
But he hardly gave me the time of day!
I was worried for nothing! He didn't even chase me...and he seems to be a lot quieter to me then my own dog-guy, MOL!
Pipo had to give him one or two rounds of smacky paws, but nothing too frightful...he liked to go outside, so that meant he was not on MY terrain inside!
Well this morning after he ate his kibble breakfast he got his leash on and home he went.
Hey, I kind of liked this Murphinator dude! He was pretty good in spite of being a dog-guy...
The worst indignity, though, from this visit, was that Pipo & I had to be 'locked up' in the front room during the night...our Auntie sleeps in the living room, and we are in no way allowed to be out and about during that time...because she doesn't want a nice cozy and warm kitty blanket...MOL! Her loss, I say!
(At least we had a kitty box, food and water...plus a comfy recliner, so it wasn't like we were totally deprived...but we really would have enjoyed a peep to sleep on, and perhaps a doggy pillow, MOL!)
Back to normal now!

Well today I sure had a lot more to worry about than the imminent arrival of the Murphinator...we had a worse kind of zooming going on here, the zooming of a raging severe thunderstorm, which caused all the warning sirens to go off, because there had been sightings of a tornado. And while we here at our den were spared, the peeps about 8 miles south of us got hit by a probable tornado. There is a lot of damage in that area of town, including where meowmy does her shopping...so now she will have to hunt for our grub in another venue...OMC! There were some peeps hurt when big trees fell on their vehicles, and on their homes, but as far as we know right now, no one was killed, thank the Lord.
I guess there will be more reports and news of this in tomorrow's news venues...but what we saw tonight made meowmy and my furmily thankful that nothing worse happened. There was no church this evening either, and if the furmily had gone, they would have had trouble getting home because the main highway was covered with downed trees in one place! That would mean that the alternate rural tree lined roads would even had been a lot worse...
Well, after all the noise and rain was done...it was sunny! Can you believe it? But there were no sunpuddles because the sun was not shining in my sunny south window by that time anymore:(
Maybe tomorrow? I sure hope so!
Hope everyfur has a wonderfur Memorial Day!

Well, both Pipo & my dog-guy brofur wrote about the rainy sunless weather we have been having...but I shall write about something that has me worried...another dog-guy! OMC!
I heard that perhaps a black furry terrierist may be making an appearance here...along with another unfur...I would like to go out and meet the Murphinator, but first I shall have to get over my fear of strangers...cause of the other unfur...even though meowmy told me she is her sister.I have seen her before, and her dog-guy, too...but it has been a long while...so it will be like starting all over again.
This pup is smaller than my brofur, but just as NUTZO! Afterall he is also terrierist so it could get rather catciting round here, come Monday.
I shall have to recruit Pipo to do his 'beat up the pup' routine...MOL!
I wish everfur a Happy Memorial Day and a safe holiday. Take some time to say thanks to the many servicemen, past and present, who serve so bravely and for some they even give the ultimate gift to their country, their lives. We truly owe them our safety and our freedom.
Let us hope the Mr Sun comes back, too. I miss my sun puddle time!

The weather is playing wet and noisy games, tonight. Wow! So loud that the whole house was rattling. And gusts of wind! The neighbors roof shingles that were laying on the roof from being removed to make way for new ones were just lifted off and were sailing in the air! OMC! The workers will have a rude surprise in the morning!
We had to turn of the computers here for a while because the storm was that severe. At least we didn't get the tornadoes that some places got. Weather can be rather fearsome and scary at times, and tonight its no exception. At one point I had to go and look for a hidey hole...
Meowmy says that this is the heavenly way to have an early fireworks display to help catabrate Victoria Day, which is the Canadian holiday that is tomorrow.
We did have a nice start to the day on Thursday...then we had drizzle...then Friday we had a nice day...ending with rain, and last night we had more drizzle....good only for the grass seeds that pawppy put down on some bare spots...and for raising the water levels in the Great Lakes...which is good for the fish that swim in there...who knows how much rain came with today's storms!
Purrs to all!

Here is something kind of cute...esp for those of us who need to have a giggle or two...perhaps you may not 'get it' at first, then suddenly you will! MOL!
Ingenious way to stimulate supermarket sales!
-----Sense of Freshness....
A while ago a new supermarket opened in Topeka , KS .
It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of distant thunder and the smell of fresh rain.
When you pass the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and you experience the scent of fresh mown hay.
In the meat department there is the aroma of charcoal-grilled steaks with onions.
When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cluck and cackle, and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying.
The bread department features the tantalizing smell of fresh-baked bread and cookies.
... I don't buy toilet paper there anymore...
Did you have a good laugh? I hope so, it will make the sunny day we are having today so much more enjoyable!

Wow! I heard meowmy say that she saw all different kinds of colored snow today. on the pavement and on the ground...What is the world coming to?
Some of it is even in our own backyard!
What? Oh, good! Meowmy said that it is just lots and lots of flowers from the trees and shrubs that the storms have beaten off of them. Of course they did look prettier on the trees than on the ground!
I was getting worried, I had been hearing all this rumbling and grumbling outside, and the wind was so strong. It got very dark yesterday, and it wasn't even close to sunset!
Meowmy even had to get off of Catster for a while, something about too much lightening...I really miss the bright sunshine that we had a few days ago, even the windows were open. Now it is so damp and dank, UGH!
Maybe this is why I got into bullying mode last night...Pipo was lying on the CPU. Humph! That is my favorite place...well I walked up to him, stared him in the face and dared him to stay...Pipo gave me a big hiss, and wonder of wonders, he got up and stalked away..and I got my way, MOL! I may be the smaller dude here but I am the King! MOL!
Purrs to all!

Since it will be Mother's Day, very soon, I thought all you Moms and meowmy's in Catsterland would enjoy this piece of garnered wisdom:
JUST A MUM?
A woman, renewing her driver's licence, was asked by the woman at Registry to state her occupation.
She hesitated, uncertain how to classify herself.
'What I mean is', explained the woman at the Registry, 'do you have a job or are you just a ...?'
'Of course I have a job,' snapped the woman.
'I'm a Mum.'
'We don't list 'Mum' as an occupation,'housewife' covers it', said the recorder emphatically.
I forgot all about her story until one day I found myself in the same situation.
The Clerk was obviously a career woman, poised,
efficient, and possessed of a high sounding title like, 'Official Interrogator' or 'City Registrar.'
'What is your occupation?' she probed.
What made me say it? I do not know. The words simply popped out.
'I'm a Research Associate in the field of
Child Development and Human Relations.'
The clerk paused, ball-point pen frozen in midair and looked up as though she had not heard right.
I repeated the title slowly emphasizing the most significant words.
Then I stared with wonder as my pronouncement was written, in bold, black ink on the official questionnaire.
'Might I ask,' said the clerk with new interest,
'just what you do in your field?'
Coolly, without any trace of fluster in my voice,I heard myself reply, 'I have a continuing program of research,(what mother doesn't); in the laboratory and in the field, (normally I would have said indoors and out). I'm working for my Masters, (first the Lord and then the whole family); and already have four credits (all daughters). Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities, (any mother care to disagree?); and I often work 14 hours a day, (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers and the rewards are more of a satisfaction rather than just money.'
There was an increasing note of respect in the clerk's voice as she completed the form, stood up and personally ushered me to the door
As I drove into our driveway, buoyed up by my glamorous new career, I was greeted by my lab assistants -- ages 13, 7, and 3. Upstairs I could hear our new experimental model,(a 6 month old baby), in the child development program, testing out a new vocal pattern.
I felt I had scored a beat on bureaucracy! And I had gone on the official records as someone more
distinguished and indispensible to mankind than just another Mum.'
What a glorious career!
Especially when there's a title on the door.
Does this make grandmothers
'Senior Research associates in the field of Child Development and Human Relations'
And great grandmothers
'Executive Senior Research Associates?
I think so!
I also think it makes Aunts.
‘Associate Research Assistants.'
Feel free to relay this important info to any Mom, Aunt, Grandmother and Great Grandmother!
They will be blessed by the knowledge that their hard work is truly a career to be honored and respected by all!
Meowmy's and others like them included...MOL!

Yup, You read that right! My catretary is so slow with taking cat-tations, from me, so that I decided to do it my self...with my dainty meezer paws, aka mitts...MOL!
But that made meowmy feel sorry for me, so she did take it over, sigh, I was going to mew all kinds of kitty tales...
Well whatever! It has been quite a long while!
Easter is almost 2 weeks ago!
Mother's Day is just around the corner, and then there will be the 2 holidays at the end of the month, Victoria Day, and Memorial Day. Meowmy has been way busy, so she may just 'recycle' some pics. to keep up with those days...but not have the stress of a photo session. I am not too sad about that! MOL!
Meowmy has finished her class, with an A, but the studying is not over, yet, because she has to take a state exam, soon.
Of course, then she will be going on a job hunt. Maybe she should take us kitties with her as she hunts, after-all, we are so much better at stalking and hunting than a human, MOL!
I like to wash dog-guy's ears, but yesterday, he was too stinky for that! He found something really smelly to roll in...EEUUW!
I didn't even want to get too close after he got cleaned up...because then he had other odors on his fur...
My unfur bros came home from college...briefly...then they disappeared again...though the boxes here are all over the place! Meowmy says we could get into the storage business!
They should be back in a couple of days, then there will be plenty of laps top sit on, and knead.
Meowmy put a cardboard tray in the laundry basket...she wanted to bring it upstairs...but first I had fun chewing and scratching all over it! MOL! I bit big chunks out of it! Good thing it wasn't going to be used for anything very important! Just storage...of unfurbro's things...hee-hee!
I wish that meowmy would have let the boy's boxes be in the livingroom...that would have been tons of hide & go seek fun, as well as being great for scratching all over!
Well, I need to go and have another longish kitty nap...and get myself ready for the next days catventures!
