Caturday Saying

 was working in my office this morning thinking about what I would  post for today and decided that I wanted to do something special for my mommie. She is such a wonderful mommie and loves me to bunches. I thought long and hard then I knew I would do a CATurday saying and had the purrrfect one just for her. So here you go mom~this post is dedicated to you!


If You're Not Going To Make A Snort Noise,
Why Even Laugh?

ps: Yep, she has been known to snort once and awhile. How about your mommie or daddie?
ppss: I added a poll on Sunday about snorting so please vote

Purrrformance Review

Time to sit down with the mom and once again do the yearly purrrformance review. This was going to be a tricky one as many times she hasn't worked for me as much as I would have wanted . . .


. . . but I thought about the past year and realized that she wasn't so bad after all. Many things on the plus side came into consideration with this report . . .

Write Up Of Review by Gracie

Over the last year there were many times that I wanted you to work for me more but you had other things that took you away from your duties of my blog. There were posts missed, friends to visit, contests to be entered, and other blogging duties. Then I had to consider the many house of work you put in working on my blog; the new header, new wallpaper at my place, making headers for my friends, helping with the VSquillion Shelter, answering the emails, and helping with the duties that go along with Head Auctioneer at the CB Official Auction. Taking that into consideration and averaging out the slack times with the you work for me times I have decided to give you a B+. This means you have improvement in some areas which we have discussed and you have agreed to address these issues. I am giving you a grade as that makes sense as the dad here is a professor and the mom, you a retired teacher, so you will understand the grading system better. You fall between High (four paws) and Medium (two paws). So I guess that gives you a three paws which is a High- or a Medium+

This ends the Purrrformance Review of 2011

A New Favorite

I have a new favorite spot to catch some zzzzzs and it is so fantastic that I have to share it with you. It is just too good not to share the information!


If you have a thingie in your house that looks like this it is called a register, well, you just have to get as close to it as you can. If you wait awhile warm air comes out and makes you feel so cozy and sleepy. The warm air stays on a long time if it is really cold outside.


I highly recommend this as a must do. Now if I may excuse myself I must get back to some heavy snoozing.

Retiring



It is with many thoughts and long consideration that I am announcing my resignation as Head Auctioneer at the CB Auction. I have enjoyed my year and a half tenure there helping those in need of $$$ and meeting many new good friends. I will use the extra time to have new adventures. There is talk in the winds that Little Productions, producers of the CCSI shows, is soon to produce a new episode. I have been asked to step on board with this process and my time will be taken up at the studios. I want to thank everyone who participated in the fundraising efforts with KC and me. This auction would not be successful without the help of all of those that donate and bid. Your continuous support of the auction will guarantee that those in need will get the help they so need. You all are the greatest and so appreciated!

 Love, Gracie Retired Head Auctioneer

Ode To Boxes

Boxes~by Gracie


Some boxes are too big.

A lot of them are just right.

Many are too small.
But no matter what I love boxes best of all!

World Cancer Day~February 4

A small request.. Just one line.
Dear God, I pray for a cure for cancer. Amen


All you are asked to do is keep this circulating, even if it's only to one more person.
In memory of anyone you know who has been struck down by cancer or is still living with it.
A Candle Loses Nothing by Lighting A nother Candle.
Please Keep This Candle Going

This was sent to me by my sissie, Asta.
If you know of someone who has or had cancer
 please take a copy of this post and
 keep the candle going.

Thanks.

The Blizzard

It all started on Monday when the Mom was talking about a blizzard coming to our area. She went to the grocery store and stocked up on a bunch of food, went to the gas station and filled up the CRV, and charged up the cell phones. I kept wondering what a blizzard was since I have never ever seen one before.


All the news folks were talking about it and saying that it was to arrive on Tuesday and I put two and two together and knew that it was coming from outside. I thought I would check things out and see if I would to be the first to spot it, whatever it was.

February 1~Our backyard overlooking the pond

Right on time the blizzard was here. For once the weathermen were right even though the mom and dad here were wishing they were wrong. All night long there were strange sounds outside. The wind was blowing so hard and mixed in with the snow was sleet that was hitting the house. The house made all kinds of noises that I didn't like. The mom held me and told me everything would be OK and not to be afraid. The three of us all slept together that night. I figured the blizzard monster would have to go through them to get to me. Safety in numbers.

February 2~Round two of the storm

In the morning of the next day the monster was still here, this blizzard was here to stay. Our county was under a Level 1 warning which means that unless you are an emergency worker you must not be out in your cars. The wind was still blowing and making a racket still. Sometime in the afternoon the monster got quieter and then finally went away, I don't know where it went but I sure was happy that it was gone.

When it was time for the folks to start thinking about digging out the nice neighbor across the street came into the driveway with his truck and plowed almost all of the snow out of their way. They were beyond happy when he did this and called his house with many thanks of appreciation.


I didn't like all of the noise that the monster blizzard made so the mom put a nice comfy blankie in the masterbedroom closet for me to snuggle down on. It is nice and quiet in there, almost sound proof plus it is nice and warm. She kept checking on me to see if I was OK. As you can see this worked out purrrfectly for me. The mom is going to keep the blankie there for me and I am thinking is my new found favorite sleepy place. Do you know that when she turns off the light in there it is such a fantastic catcave! Love it.

Today, Thursday, the weather is cold beyond cold. Please keep the furries in your purryers who live outside that they will find food, shelter, and be safe. And be sure you all stay safe!! Oh, if you need me I will be in my catcave.
