Tidal Wave in Middle Georgia

BUDDY:  Here's a picture of me so you don't forget what I look like.  We canines are in the doghouse for something we didn't do and Jan just might forget to let us out for a while so we can post.

CYNDI:  Of course the dogs didn't do it.  *wink, wink*  While they were at dinner, someone must have opened the front door and -

MERCI:  A tidal wave swept through here.  *nods head*  Seriously, it was a complete surprise.  Especially to Jan.

SAM:  She's had a hard week trying to keep up with everything while her ankle pain and swelling spread till she can barely stand on either foot and hobble.

MICAH:  She can't even sit at the computer very long now, so she was going to feed us, heat some leftovers and go to bed early. And stay there.

RUSTY:  But you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and Jan.  She fed us and walked into the living room ... and screamed.  The room was under water.

MARCUS:  Well, not quite under water, but there was water from one corner of the room clear across to the computer desk at the other end.

PERCY:  We had to cover our ears while Jan yelled words on the Do-Not-Use List and wobbled around the house digging out towels and t-shirt rags to try to stop the flood and soak up some water in the carpet.

BUDDY:  We have - or we had two huge stainless steel water bowls inside bigger plastic bowls to catch spillage.  One set was in the living room.  Has been for about ten years.

MERCI:  Both of those bowls were on their side about 3 feet away from where they were supposed to be.  Smack in the middle of the knee-high water.

SAM:  It was not knee-high water.  Don't exaggerate, Merci.

MERCI:  How do you know, Sam?   My knees are closer to the carpet than your knees.

CYNDI:  It's hot and we've all been drinking a lot of water so Jan has been keeping the water bowls filled higher than she usually does.

RUSTY:  Now we don't have one in the living room.  And it's all ... um, it's all because of a freak act of nature.  I mean, who could have guessed we could have a tidal wave in the middle of Georgia?

MARCUS:  Somehow this has got to be Jan's fault.  We furries are so good.  We never cause problems.

PERCY:  Marcus, your name is written all over this accident.  Don't press your luck.

Note:  Due to the tidal wave and Jan's health, there is no Mousebreath interview this week. 

Friday is also time for the Pet Parade blog hop, hosted by by Rascal and Roscoe.  It is co-hosted by Bionic Basil, Barking From the Bayou, Love is being owned by a husky, and us (Jan's Funny Farm).

    OMDness, nothing spoils fun so much as water where it doesn't belong. Whatever and whoever is past, the cleanup is the trouble. My sympathies to Jan - and slight tut-tut look in the farmers direction....... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Oh man!! Water! What a mess!

  3. You could have pretended to be on the beach and have a paddle too. I would have done.
    Luvs to mom, get well soon.Luvs Freya Rose Blossom X

  4. Sounds like a lot of messy fun!

  5. All you ended was some sand and a white noise machine and you would have been at the beach, those humans never see the good in these kinds of fings.

  6. Don't worry guys! I'm 100% sure that it was the squirrels that caused this disaster.

  7. Poor Jan! And poor yous and wes agrees with Amber...blames it on Not Me or the evil Squirrels!!!

  8. Yikes stay on high ground
    Lily & Edward

  9. Poor Jan we hope all the water came up and everything is dry.

  10. Oh, dear...not what you needed, Miss Jan.

    Hope the wet gets dried up and that your health improves greatly.

    You furries need to take really good tender loving care of your Mom so she doesn't get too stressed, as that will make her feel worse and take longer to get better...We know you will.

  11. Of course you were framed. Someone must have come in the house and set you up! Do you have enemy squirrels living nearby?? So sorry Jan, hope your ankle heals quickly ~RascalandRocco

  12. We hope everything dried out all right and Jan's ankle is healing. What a fright for everyone.

  13. I heard about a hurricane in Georgia. I think it was named Hurricane Marcus! BOL! Sorry for the mess, water is never fun in the house.

  14. Oh my, every time I hear about these hurricanes my heart goes out to everyone who has to deal with all that mess! god only knows what it does to all those animals that don't get picked up in time and taken to a shelter.

  15. sew...we iz guessin nowz knot a good time ta say sum thin bout fishin huh....

    speekin oh....if yur mom wraps her ankle in perch...her will bee surprized how much better it feelz....troo lee TRY IT !!

  16. Y'all are going to have to start having flood drills!

  17. Bowsers, I hope Jan heals quickly. It is hard to get fed when the hoomans get gimpy.

    I am sure that must have been a Cat-tastropy when that tidal wave hit.


  18. Oh my goodness! What a shock that must have been. We sure hope all that water got cleaned up, and that Jan's ankle is feeling better, too.

  19. Oh boy, when it rains it pours. Sorry for the tidal wave - what a mess. Also sorry Jan's ankle is a problems. What's with our humans? They are all falling apart at the same time. I hope we don't catch whatever it is. I'm purring for Jan and maybe by now she has a smile on her face.

  20. Well, the last time OUR kitchen got flooded, it was TBT who kicked over the water bowl... So thats 2 examples of us furries not being at fault.


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
