Memorial Day 2011

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

John McCrae (1872-1918)

During the grill outs, pool parties and big store sales, take time to remember the reason for this day and thank the Lord for those men and women who gave the last full measure of devotion so we can sleep soundly...free.


What? On Wednesday

What kind of freaky deaky bunnies are these????

I think I know where this guy came from...

Look, that rabbit's got a vicious streak a mile wide! It's a killer!


Leash Laws, Abandonment, Water Leaks

So my bean abandoned me to go to see a six foot giant rat (the "head of an evil corporation") at the happiest place on earth (in my opinion that is a warm bed of clean laundry or having the bed to myself with a plate of stinky goodness by my side) and totally abandoned me!

Aw, so they needed a vacation. So they had a good time. Whooptie freakin do.
My lazy nasty mother didn't even leave the computer open so I could have a House Trashing party. Grrrrrrrrrr

Bast stepped in and took care of part of my revenge. When they got home there was water all over the basement. Thank Bast I don't go down there when they aren't home. I still need something else to get back at them. I just can't decide what...

I did have a nice girl come stay with me. She even stayed overnight (she didn't open up the Mancave so didn't see the water!) It was nice to get a break from the stinky boy even if I missed mommy & daddy. It was nice to have someone's undivided attention...

Now the beans having to fix that water stuff and finish other house projects (like tiling a backsplash in the kitchen, painting and finishing another bathroom). I say if they weren't such lazy butts 90% of the time they wouldn't have to work so hard all at once. Mommy actually agrees with me!

I've been pretty spoiled since they've been back. Lotsa lotsa nip nip nip and pets. Also a cool new birdie toy from a "Happy Meal." It makes me happy...

I thought my woofie friends might like to see this picture from their trip.

ha ha ha I can think of a lot of things I'd tie the little booger to if only I had thumbs....


Twisting on Tuesday

ah, finally sunbeams. Now if I can just get comfy...
