Autos of beauty
So for today:
Things have been pretty sedate here in NC. I was able to work on my dragon’s tail. That is the last big dead fall in the yard on which I carved the dragon head.
The kids have never been able to walk the whole tree due to a
standing root system the tree pulled up when it fell. I trimmed the root system
and now they can jump off the end of the reptile. LOL I will add a rail where
it goes over the big ditch!
Temps here have dropped below freezing. The coach has not been in freezing weather in 10 years. That was back when John became
sick in Ypsi and we went up for Sherry to nurse her baby brother back to
I went down to the basement and was met by Tom (Tiger 1) and he
was followed closely by Tiger Two. I
allowed them to spend the night in the basement, it is warmer than the Cat
House I built.]
“Tiger Two is telling me it is SUMMER upstairs! I know she is lying,” said Tom.
What happened was, the night before Tom was outside and Tiger
Two actually followed me into the house for the first time. She explored around
and talked to Sherry. Of course it was toasty warm. If you know Sherry, she is
gonna have it warm.
After looking around awhile she found a spot and just sat, seeming
trying to figure-out this warm place. When I opened the door to the garage, she
darted out, and went to the basement.
Later I sat with her in a chair in the basement and explained to
her she could live in the warm house, but she would lose her claws and would
have to be FIXED! She didn’t’ like the
sound of that, and her eyes darted around to see if fixing would start anytime
BUT I did explain to Tom, “YEP, it is warm as summer up there; but
to live up there would have to lose your claws and…..!”
“Don’t even think of it. I was talking to the Tom up the street,
he got “FIXED”, and he ain’t happy about it.”
I told them the moral of the story is that sometimes we are
accused of lying when we don’t understand what is said.
My cat’s really don’t tell lies intentionally.
Yes, I have a lot of conversations with animals, birds, cars and even doors. TRUE (age changes messes with your mind).
PS. If you do not get this road rage 20-30 second incident, someone will explain it.
