Toby's Diary

The sun is here

People were saying it wouldn't come but I knew my friend Laura Belle had parcelled some up and sent it so it would.

Our new washing machine is here too. What a swiz! It came in polystyrene blocks and no box. It is smaller than the old one and we can walk right behind it easily (although we haven't had much of a chance to do that as mum has been washing pretty much constantly since it arrived and we don't like the way it whines.)

I asked mum if it is true that European washing machines are smaller than American ones and she said she did some work for Maytag a while back and she's pretty sure we couldn't even get one of their machines in our kitchen so yes, she thinks they are.

It was a pretty exciting weekend all in all as we had a visitor to stay. I was sleeping when mum was making up the bed in the spare room so Josie helped. I heard mum saying, "You crazy cat, that's your own tail." I haven't chased my tail since I was a kitten but Josie chases hers sometimes because it makes mum laugh and that's what she was doing.

The visitor was Nicky who comes this time every year and she and my mum go off to Wimbledon to watch the tennis. Nicky has known both of us since we were small but this was the first year she has been able to stroke Josie which shows just how brave my sister has become.

I caught a frog for Nicky to play with but mum didn't notice and accidentally shut the door before I could bring him in. I put him down to explain and off he hopped and I couldn't catch him again.

The sunny is still here (thanks Laura Belle) so I'm off out to enjoy it.

I think the English should not be allowed to attend Wimbledon; they're bad luck for all the Americans!

Good job with the frog, Toby.
Sorry about the washing machine not coming in a nice box for you. Bummer. We HAVE a Maytag washing machine AND a dryer too. Well, of course we have Maytag. We live in Iowa. We were so purry sorry when the plant in Newton closed. So that means we're family I think. Maytag family.
