It is The Fourth Of July!
So in honor of that, the fireworks are on the house...well actually they are on the page, MOL! Our page is full of them, all booming and banging and lighting it up with all those purrty colors!
We sent a lot of them to our furends, too...so listen up fur the noisiness!
We hung out our Stars and Stripes, today...a few days ago we hung up our red & white Maple leaf flag, in honor of Canada's birthday. That was on July first.
Two countries, close together, and sharing the same week to catabrate their birthdays!
Good that we are furends...in history, though it was not always that way, MOL!
Our hope is that all countries can solve their differences and live peaceably side by side just like we do.
So: Have a great holiday, and stay safe, too!
Have fun sending and receiving all the noisy fireworks gifts, today!

Hooray and yippee!
We got our interwebs back sowe can get all tangled upin them again...appawrently someone caught the wire with their vehicle and pulled it off the pole, as well as or wall...sheesh, who has anything that tall?
The repair lady was there about an hour...and thankfurly we did not have to endure any stranger presence in our den...MOL! She stayed outside! Dog-guy was happy to greet her wherevfur she was...
That same night there was another series of severe thunderstorms...and we had to hide in hidey holes, but no tornado warnings, so we didn't have to go in the dungeon here.
In the morning after all of that, there were all kinds of branches down in our yard, but no limbs or whole trees...howevfur there was lots of that kind of damage in other areas, and power outages, too. We got off easy!
We sure have had some unsettled weather...and more rain today and tomorrow...on Pawppy Day...and meowmy has to work...and she had to work the other day too when it was Pawppy's birthday.
We are enjoying a nice partly sunny day today, with open windows.
Meowmy bought some catnip plants to put in the garden...we wonder if it will be as yummy to our senses as the stuff she brings home in little containers.
Pipo has been a goody two paws...but Minko...well he will write his own entry...sigh...

Meowmy went to her work last evening, and when she got back evfurry thing was really quiet in the den. No TV, no unfurbros or pawppy on their confusers and a lot of long faces.
What the Cat is going on??
Meowmy had left some doggy & kitty stuff until her return, but she wasn't going to be allowed to get at it...the wire with cable had come off the house...go figure. So no cable, and no TV and no internet, the worst form of punishment fur sure...and fur no good reason, other than to test our skills at being 'unhooked'!
So now we can't say congrats to furs that have honors today, or spawsial days...and we can't even think about making any pics fur our furends...Dang!
We see Uno is COTD.congrats to her, Charlie a new angel is a DDP, our dog-guy is a DDP, too and we can't do anything about that either. Shucks.
We are borrowing a Wi-Fi hot spot right now, so at least we can let you know why we are not playing and purring on your pages today. much less our own.
Cable dude was supposed to come and fix things today...but he didn't come...HISSSSSSS!
Hope he comes tomorrow.
Well, at least meowmy can go to a hot spot, but it isn't the ideal situation...hey we would like a hot spot, the AC is on here and there are way too many cold spots, here, MOL!
Hope to get to play normally soon!
Purrs to all!

What did we see?
Its purrty slick,
To be a 'pick'
We were sort of quiet here,
On our own page, oh, dear...
Well, now we are back,
To make meowmy pick up the slack...
Our thanks we mew,
To all of you.
For notes and gifts,
Our spirits they lifts...
Now once again we gotta leave,
To see what meowmy has up her sleeve,
Cause she has soon to go to work, we believe.
Wow a DDP for something we wrote almost 2 weeks ago, and even already had a DDP on...MOL!
Here is a nice piccie that Tundra and crew made fur us:
From Tundra & Furmily ~ Thanks!
Sorry we aren't that active on our own page,meowmy has been letting us make piccies fur other furs, and letting us play in *their*
pages...she says we can't do evfurrything...sigh...why not meowmy, are you not our catretary?
Our thoughts and pawyers are with all of those peeps who have had their lives so sadly disrupted by those awfurl storms:(
Not too much going on here out of the ordinary that is...we catnap, we play, we purr and we pester the pawrents fur attention!

Our page looks like a flower store, or a field of purrtiness!
Thanks to all who sent those nice blue 'vases' (MOL!) to all of our pages, for Mother's Day...then now we are finding that there are oh so purrty flowers to put in them! THANKS!!
And now we are even seeing some other things to say thanks for!
We have gotten comments, Pmails and rosettes to catabrate the fact that we are a DDP!
So also thanks to Dairy Gal.
Yesterday meowmy worked all evening, today she s running those things she calls errands, but we are not sure why she has to run with those...can't she just keep them here at home and stay with all of us?? And tomorrow she is leaving early again to 'go out with the girls'. Hey, why can't we go too...don't girls need guys to chauffeur them around and buy them nice things?
So...if you seem to be missing our presence, that is why...we are just ordinary kitties sometimes! Sigh...
Two Saturdays ago, we were not here either, because the older unfur-bro had his graduation from the U of M. He is now an offurcial Bachelor, MOL! In Confuser Geeky Engineering...
Here is a pic of the part of 'The Big House' that he had the ceremony in:
Unfurbro Number One is in this darker crowd...somewhere...
He was getting warm, so he unzipped his gown...but here is he in said Cap & Gown:
Unfurbro Number One is an Official Bachelor
(Sorry for that photo bomber...MOL!)
And here is he with meowmy & pawppy:
Proud Pawrents & Unfurbro Number One
We, Pipo & Minko are purroud, too!
Well, meowmy has to go now...we will try to catch up a bit later...
Enjoy the beautifur Spring day!

Folks and furs, we are going to complain of abandonment...
...18 hours of no peeps in our den, Sheesh:(
Meowmy & Pawppy left our den at 6 am...and just got back at midnight...sorry if we missed any of your fun here in Catsterland...sigh...They were at unfurbro's graduation from college...plus other activities...there were 500 miles on the car after they got home...and college is only 90 miles from here...what the mew??
They took him and the younger unfurbro to a conference after the ceremony and having a spawsial meal..somehow no furs are allowed at The Big House where this all took place...(Only service pups...but no mention of kitties who might be good at helping their peeps, MOL)
But...the weather was lovely, not hot, not wet and there was a breeze...perfect!
We heard dog-guy howling his head off...because of this mews that meowmy heard about...
Just after they left, there was a very bad and fatal accident on the back roads a couple of miles from here...and since we live in a rural setting, anytime 911 gets a call, all the volunteers respond...lots of sirens...equals...tons of howling. There were young adults in the car, it hit a tree, going too fast...2 were dead at the scene, not sure at this time about the other 2. OMC:((
Pawrayers fur their furmily members. So senseless and furry sad.
Also on the furst Saturday of each month they test the emergency warning sirens...always a good reason for a loud howling accompaniment., silly dog-guy...At least dog-guy was outside in the fenced yard doing his guard duty and his noisy howling...and we got to enjoy all the sun puddles for us alone. MOL!
Meowmy needs to go and shut her eyes before getting up again at 630 am...Sunday is Church day, and we have to rest up for another day filled with kitty fun!

Well it is still yo-yo mode with the weather around here. Today again it was drizzly, and rainy.
The big orange cats in Detroit decided to deal with it, seemingly enjoying it tonight, as they didn't cancel or delay their game...maybe they have duck genes afterall...anyways, they were liking the wetness, and reveling in it because they won, Yeah!
When those trees decide to leaf out, meowmy is going to have issues...she is allergic to tree pollen, and those trees are ready to go poof all at once, OMC:( The rains will help wash away some of the pollen dust, though, so maybe we hadn't better complain too much...except that the long range forecast is calling for a good chance of more rain on unfurbro's graduation day...sigh...
We wish to complain...
Please go away...
We do need you sometimes...
But NOT that day!
Now about some other dust...
Here are some cute things that were said by little children, or kidlets as meowmy calls them...
What, you ask, is "Butt dust?" Read on and you'll discover the joy in it!
These have to be original and genuine. No adult is this creative!!
JACK (age 3) was watching his Mom breast-feeding his new baby sister. After a while he asked: "Mom why have you got two? Is one for hot and one for cold milk?"
MELANIE (age 5) asked her Granny how old she was. Granny replied she was so old she didn't remember any more. Melanie said, "If you don't remember you must look in the back of your panties. Mine say five to six."
STEVEN (age 3) hugged and kissed his Mom good night. "I love you so much that when you die I'm going to bury you outside my bedroom window."
BRITTANY (age 4) had an earache and wanted a pain killer. She tried in vain to take the lid off the bottle. Seeing her frustration, her Mom explained it was a child-proof cap and she'd have to open it for her. Eyes wide with wonder, the little girl asked: "How does it know it's me?"
SUSAN (age 4) was drinking juice when she got the hiccups. "Please don't give me this juice again," she said, "It makes my teeth cough."
DJ (age 4) stepped onto the bathroom scale and asked: "How much do I cost?"
MARC (age 4) was engrossed in a young couple that were hugging and kissing in a restaurant. Without taking his eyes off them, he asked his dad: "Why is he whispering in her mouth?"
CLINTON (age 5) was in his bedroom looking worried. When his Mom asked what was troubling him, he replied, "I don't know what'll happen with this bed when I get married. How will my wife fit in?"
JAMES (age 4) was listening to a Bible story. His dad read: "The man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city but his wife looked back and was turned to salt." Concerned, James asked: "What happened to the flea?"
TAMMY (age 4) was with her mother when they met an elderly, rather wrinkled woman her Mom knew. Tammy looked at her for a while and then asked, "Why doesn't your skin fit your face?"
The sermon a Mom will never forget....This particular Sunday sermon..."Dear Lord," the minister began, with arms extended toward Heaven and a rapturous look on his upturned face. "Without you, we are but Dust..." He would have continued but at that moment the very obedient daughter who was listening leaned over to her and asked quite audibly in her shrill little four year old girl voice,
"Mom, what is butt dust?"
Hope you enjoyed your dusting of giggles...

Duck weather, folks, it is raining again...floods to the north & west of us, huge pondlike puddles around here..and sogginess evfurry where.
We are in yo-yo mode as far as the weather goes...a warm day...a stormy wet day, a cold day,and even snowy day. Good grief!
The grass IS getting furry green nevfurtheless...and when the sun does decide to come out of hiding, well it is lovely to bask in its warm rays and puddles.
Last week there was a day when it was about 70 degrees, and we couldn't enjoy it, it was furry stormy. We had about 4 inches of rain...only good thing about all this rain is the fact that the Great Lakes need lots of water to raise them up to more normal levels.
Then on Friday, it got so cold that meowmy had to put on her ear muffs when she was outside! Then we had enough snow to cover the ground in a thin white blanket...
Today we are back in the rain mode, and fur sure the peeps in the midwest part of our state...in the Grand Rapids area, among others...do not need this at all...
Remember last year when we had summer in March?
There is no global warming going on here this season...MOL!
Maybe we need an ark or something...
Meowmy sure hopes this weather will not be so wet or cold when she and pawppy go to the graduation of unfur-bro on the 4th of May...

We had already written a 'tag' diary about Spring, but today Keisha sent us another tag request...so as a tag-along to the furst entry here are some more ideas and thoughts about liking the spring time:
Five more Springtime likes:
1) April Showers...they make the grass greener than ever.
2) April Showers also make the birds more active...so we can chatter and drool over them.
3) April Showers...they awaken the buds on the trees to speed up, and then the odd red or grey squirrel will climb in the tree outside of our window...looking for noms...
4) April Showers, freshen up the landscape of all the old dowdiness of winter...
5) April Showers...because rain is way easier to deal with than snow, MOL!
Now if anyfur is reading this and no other fur has tagged you...then we are doing that! So go ahead and feel free to write your own Springtime likes diary!
Just remember to bring your umbrella in case there are more April Showers, MOL!

A tag of Springtime...MOL! That is a pun...because Tag is German for Day...and it is spring now, so anything we write is on a day of spring...OK, we will quit our mews of nonsense...meowmy is getting silly with us, sheesh, furst we can't be here all day, then she gets busy with things fur other furs, including pups...pups! Can you believe that? Well now we are here, and Paris has tagged us...
So here is our Tag and we are doing this at Nacht...night...so if its too silly, well the catretary says she is tired, MOL!
Paris said this is a game:
'Tag You are It!'
Here is how to play, We will name five things we like about Spring and then "Tag" five fur furends, hope you like it and play, just copy our diary and change the answers to yours and tag five of your furends!
1) The warm sun puddles, and the longer times we can enjoy it.
2) The myriads of bugs that seem to resurrect from inside all of the windows as soon as the sun heats them up...so fun to watch and pounce on...an maybe make them into a snack...and those pretty butterflies outside, too.
3) Extra laundry, from muddy laundry, and stinky sweaty gardening clothes...because we get to sit on the warm dryer, and sometimes the soft fresh out of the dryer laundry. (Though meowmy says she doesn't care for that so much...) When meowmy does garden work, she sometimes brings catnip inside for us if she can find it, that is evfur so delish!
Um...meowmy cn you plant some of that for us??
4) Chattering at birds that are in the grass, in the sky and in the tree and shrubs outside of our window, from the cat tree perch. Sometimes we even chatter at the scudding clouds on windier days.
5) Fresh air...fresh breezes coming in from the open windows, spring has so many interesting sniffs for our wee noses to inhale and wonder about!
We are adding a 6th...
Having time away from Dog-guy being in the same rooms with us,because in the warmer days he likes to go and observe his terrier-tory from off the porch...and he also gets to do outside guard duty away from us if meowmy has to go out for a while to do errands...MOL! We love that dog-guy, can you tell??
We are tagging:
Any and all furs who have not been offurcially tagged by others...we will let you decide, because meowmy is too tired to hunt them out fur us...MOL! Well, we will furgive her because she did let us come here for a wee while at least!
And we know she will have a load of more work to get all of our pages changed from all the Easter things.
And that reminds us: Thanks for all those Easter gifts...we are having egg rolling contests, making egg salads, painting eggs, having egg auctions and hiding them in places that dog-guy can't find...so he will just have to use up all of his own!
