Tuesday Tippy-Tapping

Mom is back to working with her papers. Last night she started scribbling on them. She hasn't done any tippy-tapping, although she says that's coming.

 Naturally I snoopervised.

I love the little house in my kitty condo. It makes a nice cozy place to nap.  (If only Mom would quit with the flashy box business I could sleep. Sigh.)

Easy Like Sunday

Mom has been opening the curtains so I can look at the world outside.  It will get warmer later, and Mom will open the windows.  Whee!

Finally Friday

It's almost the weekend. Mom wants to work on the garden.  She'll plant the usual yukky green stuff - spinach and lettuce, arugula and bibb, several kinds of basil and thyme and rosemary. She'll plant some 'Nip for me along with some nasturtiums and merrygolds.

Me? I'm gonna watch the neighbs next door from my vantage point on my kitty condo. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some snoopervising to do.

Happy Birthday Mr Karate

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday dear Mr Karate!
Happy Birthday to you!

Mom cannot resist any kind of temptation whatsoever, so here are some of her favorite pictures of Mr Karate at different times of his life.

From when he was in college, taking two dead laptops apart and installing Linux on the one that was left over.

Mr Karate took this picture of himself. He didn't point the camera high enough to get his face, but Mom likes it anyway.

Mr Karate took this one too, and again he didn't aim the camera high enough. Mom was good enough to make sure Mr Karate smiled just before the camera took the picture. (She's the one that sprinkled the flour on his face.)

One of Mom's Aussie friends saw this picture and said Mr Karate was a "spunk" which means he is a good looking guy to the folks down under. I think so too.

Mr Karate and Rubylocks in Hawaii.

Hey, I can sneak a picture of me. It's my blog. Besides, it's a cute picture, and I love Mr Karate too.

Happy Birthday Mr Karate!

It's been a hell of a week here in New England.
It ended well. Thanks to all the law enforcement officials for their hard work for catching the bad guys. They picked the wrong town to mess with.

I am proud to say I am Boston Strong. Mom and I have donated to The One Fund, which will help the victims recover from their injuries (which are many and terrible).  If you would like to help, you can do that by clicking this link.

(Now I shall get off my soapbox and get back on my kitty condo.)

I love my kitty condo.

In Mary-land

Monty loves me, but he -really- loves Mom. Lookit him sitting on Mom's lap getting scritches!

Monty also kept a close eye on Mooshie while he was napping.

There was a lot of napping going on.

Family Friday

Mom and I snuck away for a trip to Mary-land
This photo was taken at Annmarie Gardens in front of Mom's favorite sculpture. That's Mooshie sticking his tongue out, then Mom, then KidBean holding the Caboose and SweetBean.

Tucker likes me.
He -really- likes Mom.

I think the Caboose and Mooshie like each other. They like to rassle.

Of course, Monty and I only had eyes for each other.

Where's Millie?

Beaker here... Where's Millie?

Um,  Beaker, I'm right here..
sitting next to Mooshie.  Cool your jets dude!

Sad Tuxie

It was supposed to be a fun happy day, and then some idiot or bunch of idiots made the Boston Marathon a tragic day. I do not know why some people find it necessary to kill and hurt people on purpose. I am putting my purr-er on overdrive to help as many of the injured as I can. Mom is saying special purr-ayers. Perhaps you can help too.

Thank you Chicago Tribune Sports:
 You are a class act.

Millie Monday

Hahahaha! Monday's are for doing whatever I want!

Easy Like Sunday

I am taking it very easy. I even got Mom to do not a whole heck of a lot. Hope you are having a nice day today.

Kirby has received the prize package for the When When Contest.  You can read about it here.

Happy Birthday Sweetbean!

Today Sweetbean is 7!  She is one of my most favorite little sticky people.

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday dear Sweetbean!
Happy Birthday to you!

Almost six years ago the cat bloggers got together to help her out when she got burned. It's how Mom and MomBean got to be good friends. The innernets are a really cool place to meet new friends and fambly.

Tired Thursday

After all the excitement of this busy winter and the When When Contest, Mom and I are going to take a few days off from blogging to rest and chillax.

See you in a few days.

Customized Playing Cards

I've ordered a customized set of playing cards, and Mom and I selected this picture. You can order your own set here. I needed a photo that was at least 1 MB in size, and Mom and I both wanted one that showed my purrsonality. We think this is purrfect.

Have a nice Wednesday!

The prize package is on its way to Kirby in Texcats.

It's When!

When Mom and I looked out the window this morning, we didn't see ANY snow AT ALL!  That means Kirby is the winner of this year's When When Contest!

Concatulations Kirby!  Please email your snail mail address to darlingmillie AT gmail DOT com (you know how to put them together) and a prize package with goodies will be forthcoming.

Mom and I want to thank everybody for pawticipating. It was a good contest this year. We had lots of snow and it was fun to watch it all melt. 

 Now if you'll excuse me, I am going to take a nap.

Is it When Yet?

Um. I dunno. Mom went out to check after dinner last night, and while the snow piles were very small, they were still there. We will all know when Mom looks outside in the morning, when the sun comes up.

I love my kitty condo, and yes, I have explored the bookcase.

In the meantime, Charliepuss from Oz has a question. He thinks Mom and I should have a handicap system for those contestants who live in hot places, or where they don't have snow.

Well, it's a nice idea Charliepuss, but sorry, ain't gonna happen.  Charliepuss, you and I have met after the contest started. You see, Mom and I made a list of things to help you pick a "good date."  But that won't really help. Sometimes the weather is warmer than usual, and sometimes it's colder. Sometimes it rains, and the snow melts faster. There's no way of knowing. It's all just a guessing game, really.

Mom and I thought it would melt before March was over! We would have lost the contest, and we live here, where it snows every winter!

Sorry Claude & Marlene, and Kikky, there is still a bit of snow out there, so you are not the winners of the When When Contest.
 Now with all the foolishness of "snow is different than ice," and to make sure there is no funny business going on, Mom went outside to make SURE what is in the picture above is actually SNOW.

Not Yet When

I am so sorry Poppy Q.  Close only counts in Horseshoes. You did not win the When When Contest.

I have something I think my fellow kitties and their Moms will really enjoy. It's something nice and easy for your viewing pleasure. Go visit this link: http://deshommesetdeschatons.tumblr.com/

Don't look at me. It came from Mr Karate & Rubylocks.

Not Quite When

Sorry Toby, but you are not the winner of the When When Contest.  We will have a winner very soon. When will that snow melt?

I really love my cat tree. I like to rub my head against the platform.  I spend a lot of time napping on top of the house.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday, and I am Seven!
Where's my present Mom? Is it in here?
Is it in there?
It's up here! I know! It's my awesome kitty condo. Thank you Mom! (Now can I get back to my nap?)

Will there be a When When Winner today too?  This is what is left of the snow. Mom went out to take a picture when she got home from day hunting last night.

If this pile of snow is gone when the sun comes up,we will have a winner.

Sorry Calypso in Iowa. There is still snow outside. You have not won the When When Contest.

Thursday Things

First of all, Cubby and Shaggy & Scout, I am very sorry to say you guys are not the winners of the When When Contest.
I am confident we will have a winner very soon. The weather is warming up, and today is supposed to be sunny.

DRAT! I hate when Mom catches me doing something I want to keep secret.

When she got home from day hunting yesterday, I was in the little house on the kitty condo.

Carmine, Clifford, neither of you is the winner of the When When Contest. We will have a winner soon.  Who will it be? Who will win the When When Contest?

Mom added another perch onto the cat tree. I don't like sitting on things that are the least bit wobbly (which is why I don't get on Mom's lap), so I was not too sure about this perch, but there were Temp-tay-shuns up there and I wanted to eat them.
