Melting Pot and Paws
We were all lying around snoozing prior to bedtime Thursday night while Jan used the computer, when eyes began to open and heads began to pop up as we furries started to panic. Sniff, sniff, what's burning? Are we all going to die? We can't see through the smoke.
**Note from Cotton - There was no smoke! Cameron got a bit disoriented since he had tucked himself into a white sheet to take a nap. He's just being dramatic.**
Jan jumped to her feet, not knowing where to check first, then headed for the most logical source - the kitchen. Did she leave something on the stove?
Oh, you bet she did! She worked on the computer while waiting for water to boil for a cup of hot chocolate. We think she waited a bit long to check on it cause this is what she found.
whistling tea kettle.
This whistling tea kettle croaked without so much as a whimper. And because Jan had only used it a couple of times while she was standing by the stove, she didn't realize the whistle didn't work.
In lieu of flowers, you can send cards and donations to the Melted Tea Kettle Revival Fund we've set up in its memory.
** Note from Cotton - I think Cameron means the Melted Tea Kettle Replacement Fund. He's still a bit rattled from the other night.**
We were very happy we stopped by Rumpydog's blog last night. He had posted an interview with our PAWS cat shelter volunteer friend, Kevin, aka Meowmeowmans. Stop by Rumpy's to read A Visit with a Shelter Volunteer Pt 1
Part 2 will be posted today and it will be an interview with a PAWS volunteer who works with shelter dogs.. Meowmeowmans' blog is Animal Shelter Volunteer Life.
Well, this was supposed to auto post at 12:30 AM. Guess Blogger is related to Jan and doesn't remember to read the calendar either. Aha! We found the problem. They have a DIFFERENT calendar! Their week ends on Sunday instead of Saturday. This might be why some others have been complaining Blogger doesn't auto post under the new dashboard.
