A Vornado and Desk Cats

SAM:  As you have undoubtedly figured out, we have not been posting daily or even frequently for a few months now. It's all Jan's fault!  Really, it is. 

MERCI:  Yes, ask her, she'll admit it.  We don't make these things up; we tell it like it is.  And it's been pretty boring around here for a while.  Unless you include Jan's obsession with getting caught up. 

MARCUS:  She will never get caught up, for reasons such as:  She worked very hard switching desks, then had to switch the computer back to the computer desk. 

BUDDY:  She cleaned out all the drawers and tossed pens that didn't work, rubber bands that had died, etc.  All the stuff that was on the desk is now sitting here and there around the house waiting for a home to be found for them.  But the desk was cleared for Bible study and other desk-type activities.

MERCI:  She was thrilled to find the desktop again.  So of course, the cats took it over for Bird TV and napping and she has to fight them for some space. Have you ever tried to move a comfortable cat?

SAM:  And the other day Mr. Doug brought her a special belated birthday gift. A vornado fan to circulate air in the living room since it is hot and humid in here even with AC.  (Have to keep the computer from having a meltdown.)

MARCUS:  However, the ONLY place to set the fan and plug it in is ... you guessed it - on the desk.  So Jan has not only lost the desk to the cats and the fan, but the circulating air has been blowing on her at the computer and has given her a stiff neck, stuffy nose and watery eye.

BUDDY:  We found a video to make her smile and thought we would share it in case you haven't yet seen it.  This is Chance with his human best friend. They are overcoming disabilities together. 

If the video doesn't play, click here.

    It's sposed to be hot and humid today, so besides the a/c cooley thing we have a fan, too!

  7. My mum saves rubber bands on a cup hook and they have usually perished by the time she goes to use them. Such a heartwarming video!

  8. Chance and his bean are truly inspirational. We hopes lots of people see this.

    Well of course you kitties took over the desktop. Any open space is fair game, right?

    We hasn't been blogging much either, 'cuz the mom bean is so lazy (aka busy) and even when she reads us our furriends posts we don't get to comment. Sigh...beans are hard to keep trained.

    Have a great week!

    Just got to remember to keep em all away from the kitties...dead or alive bands are *bad*

    Our desk is teeny and holds a laptop, too many journals/cat-alogues, and 2 big speakers fur the confuser...oh, and a remote mouse tracker to help prevent trouble in the hand of our secretary. And right now a kitty is about to add his own typing...

  14. That video is brilliant. Brought a tear to my eye.

  15. Tell your mom that mommy didn't smile at all the goings on. But really, just between us, she did! She really did)!

  16. Mom's Bible study is on her lap pretty much because I help her so much when she sits at a table. She's grateful but decided she'd learn more of she was alone responsible for it.

  17. That was a nice gift that Mr. Doug brought, but watch out for it ... those Vornados are great at nlowing papers all over the place. ;)
