Balloons, Jets, and DDP!
And some other junk, too...MOL!
Meowmy thought she was going to be working yesterday and today on the 3 - 11 shift as is usual fur her, but she was able to take some vacation time! Hooray!
Right now in our town we are having the annual 'Field of Flight', a hot air balloon competition, and also an air show. The whole furmily has tickets fur all four days of this event. So while that is great fur the furmily, it means we have to be almost as patient to be on here as when meowmy is working...sigh...
Well, this morning when meowmy checked her email, there was nothing to indicate that we were DDP...but meowmy saw it when she checked into Catster! Yippee!
Then she saw that there were many other furs with 'occasions' to be commemorated, so she spent a lot of time with that before letting us get ready to play here with our furends...oh well, better late than nevfur!
We didn't see any balloons yet, they have been flying yesterday morning and this morning, too, but not here...some years they are right over us, and even land in the field across the street from our den!
We did hear the noisiest jets evfur! The Thunderbirds are here to purrform fur us Saturday and Sunday. We heard them come in, and we heard them practicing today. While we do not share the same opinion, meowmy thinks they are pawsome...we might too, if they were less noisy, MOL!

Yesterday evening, meowmy spent some time over at the airfield...the furry furst thing she did was trip over a wire and kaboom, she was flat on her face in the dry crunchy grass. OUCH! Well, all she got was a bruised knee and a worse bruise to her pride, MOL! She did go to some peeps to ask them to move that wire so that worse accidents wouldn't be happening.
After all that, the balloon launch was cancelled due to high winds...sigh...
Tonight there may be fireworks if the weather holds out. It was threatening for some desperately needed rain, but it went south of here...and who knows if the scheduled balloon launch will go as planned? We hope so, all those colorful balloons are so purrty to see as theu go up and fly.
MOL, our dog-guy HATES them! He will bark long befur anyone knows they are near, he hears the furnaces they use to blow the hot air into the balloons...

Well, we hope you all will have a great weekend, A Happy Canada Day if you live in Canada...or are 'ex-patriot' like our meowmy...and Happy Fourth of July to all US furmilies wherevfur you may be!

Thanks so furry much to all of you that have sent messages, comments and prezzies! We love you all!

Our moms must be related:

There's a 1,000 acre field with a wire crossing it somewhere. Mom immediately trips over it!

Remember, if no one caught it on a cameraphone, it didn't actually happen!! MOL

Congratulations on your DDP today! Happy Canada Day and Happy Fourth to you and your family, too!

Balloons fly over our house often, and we hear the 'whoosh' of the gas burners. It doesn't bother us, but we heard that dogs and horses don't like it much!

Happy DDP day dear Pipo and Minko. The balloons sound like fun. We have a balloon show south of here in August I think, but they won't fly over our house. I don't like the thunder birds. Any birds louder than my red-winged black birds are too loud for me. Happy Canada Day to you.

Hi, Kitties!
Thanks for stopping by!

We also had fireworks there tonight, and that dumb wire is still there, UGH! Meowmy has a nicely colored knee to show for her episode...but no more trips to the grass...
The fireworks were pawsome, if loud.
The weather was a lot more temperate, too. Yesterday it was like a cooker there...

Tomorrow should be hot, but fun nevfurtheless. Meowmy could see those Thunderbirds all lined up at the hangar, and some of the USAF Pilots were walking about the grounds.

Congratulations on your diary pick!!!! for some reason catster HQ is not letting kitties know when they pick their diary anymore :( so glad your mom found it!!
Sorry about your mom's fall hope her knee and pride are all better. Help her watch out for her knee to be sure it heals properly and she does not walk funny.

Sorry I missed your DDP, guys. I think I was distracted by the thought of the awful BATH I got today...

We are glad your Mom didn't get hurt too bad. Mom's sister has a friend who fell in a similar fashion and she broke BOTH her wrists! Not much you can do with two broken wrists. And she runs a small farm by herself. Auntie helped her out quite a bit as well as her neighbours.
We were to have a hot air balloon competition here one time. Mom wanted to watch. But, the weather was horrible and the weekend was a bust.

Hi, Tiny Tot, Orvis and Kitcat!
Meowmy walked all over the airfield yesterday and today, no troubles, except when she tries to kneel down as in cleaning the bath tub or things like that...but there IS a bruise there...

We sure hope these fleas get fixed quickly...and that your baths will be over with, too, you kitties give your pawrents a hard time, MOL!?

We had a lady in our church who broke both wrists one time, too...she tripped over the hose washing her car, OUCH!

Have a nice Canada Day to our Canadian furends, and a happy Fourth of July to our American ones!

PS: We sure wish all these fleas and ticks would just go away!! Maybe if we do a group hiss?!
Apparently the cats at HQ are getting their paws and jaws into the matter so if we all just take a super long catnap...they will get done...sigh...
