Millie Monday

Mom's not usually a johnny-come-lately to much of anything. Usually she's on top of just about everything. But she missed the bus the first time Masterpiece showed Downton Abbey, so she's been doing a bit of catching up.  She'd watched bits from each episode, but not the whole thing from start to finish.

We took care of that yesterday, watching all four episodes - the first three on the internets, and the last one on the picture box. Six hours, wow.  Yes, I napped next to Mom, and sometimes on her lap while we watched.

We took a break to watch my friends, the guys named Pat, romp around with the poor Bills from Buffalo.

The Christymas tree is down. Mom took it all apart, and put it in its great big box.  Mom says it is going going gone, and that next year we'll have a smaller tree. She's hoping somebody from Freecycle will want it and take it away. I'm going to miss that tree and the great big box, but Mom says it will work out, and she promises me we will have a Christymas tree next year, so I'm not worried.

Today we're going to watch Roses parade on floats.  I've never seen roses float, so I'm quite looking forward to it.

Oh, and Mom has -finally- taken some pictures of me, so my posts will have photographic evidence of my recent exploits!

Happy New Year, sweet Millie and to your Mom. Sounds like your day was purrfekt. We are watching the rose parade tomorrow, too. xoxo

Our Mom thought the parade with floating roses was on Sunday. She plans to watch it, too!

Oooh - I'm a Downton fan Millie. I have the DVDs of the first two series and the Christmas special. Now waiting for the third series. Disappointing that there are NO CATS anywhere at Downton. There's a woofie, although he doesn't have a major role, thank heavens.

We enjoyed Downton Abbey too Millie and they are going to do a new series at some point too (when it's written!!)

Our mom bought the BBC Inspector Linley DVD series for a joint gift for her & dad. She loves the Elizabeth George books and heard the series was good.

mum caught up on the Downton bus too. Watched first part on picture box, three on the puter yesterday AM and then the last bit on the picture box last night. Second series starts next Sunday.

All our Christmouse stuff went back into hiding today too. Mum has just been picking up the house in general and moving things to where she says they belong.

We like seeing pictures of you!
