Sunday Stuff

 
 
The 4th was kinda nice. I got to lick the tater salad bowl (no onions), we had BBQ beef, and very few menacing boomies. Mostly it was sort of light shows from afar that Mommy could enjoy and I wasn't bothered with. Distant fireworks are okay by me!

Blogger is being weird again and not letting me size or move my picture. So phooey. I'm special enough to not be "sized" Mommy!
Friday Mommy had to go to Wallyworld for her insulin. Due to the "holiday" (it was NOT the 4th!) she got stuck there for 3 hours by her MetroMobility. Three hours when you don't have much money is not the time to be stuck in a large retail place. Luckily the Subway people were okay with her sitting there for a couple of hours. She read and people watched. And brought a sandwich home to share. She did call to see if she could get a ride sooner, but that didn't work. It seemed that everyone was going to different Wallyworlds and malls throughout the metro area and they were quite busy. On the way home they picked up a couple of people in wheelchairs at one of the malls. Almost home she said the driver looped all over the "Quarry" (its a little shopping area about a mile from home. They have a nice PetSmart and a Cub and a Home Depot and a couple other places ). He didn't pick anyone up or anything. They just rode all around the parking lot. Strange driver.
So now it is Sunday, and we are staying home. We recently got our Chewy box and Mommy decided that ordering 40 pound bags of litter (CatAttract is wonderful and nice on toesies) was just not the thing to do. She can no longer pick up stuff like that. So we are going to go to the smaller bags. It was nice to see the foodies, though. I was down to nothing in the crunchie department. Seriously. Chewy saved the day once again.
Oh, yes. You've probably heard of Nip and Bones having a Blowout Sale for the holiday. Lots of kitties have been talking about it. Someone better order that blue princess dress! I'm not hinting. I don't wear clothes. But somecat would be very pretty in it. They also have some cute doggie PJ's. Mommy took a little of my PayPal account and ordered one of those kitty bowls. The one shaped like a kitty head and it's pink (I hope. They were almost out). So if you can, go help this amazing store out and go buy something! I didn't spend much, but every little bit helps that on line store out (and Baby Patches, too!).
It is sposed to be very hot and humid here today, so we are staying inside with the a/c cooley thing. Maybe Mommy will actually turn it up! We don't pay for electric, so there is no excuse, Mom!
Everyone have a safe and snoozy and cool-ish Sunday!
Love ya,
QUINN

Tuxie Toosday!

Oh, Cod. Mommy has been messing around with her grocery list this morning. All morning. She cut a bunch of stuff, but she did get a 24 pack of water for free. Woo-hoo!
Any contributions to the food fund are welcome. Just use PayPal (at the side).
Sad to say the Tilapia was crossed off. That's fish!!!
Another one of her meds is not carried by her insurants. Should we go Canadian Pharmacy folks?
Mommy is on her way SOMETIME this week to pick up her insulin at some place called WallyWorld? Wal-something.
We had a brief but intense storm last night. Lots of lightning. Not a whole lot of thunder. I sat by Mommy's chair so she wouldn't be afraid.
Now, on to better stuff:
 
  it is Tuxie Toosday!!


thought you might want to know
love ya,
QUINN
Even though blogger hates me today.

Thankful Thursday

Yesterday and the day before Mommy had 'pointments. She definitely wished she had a camera with her yesterday! And her phone isn't connected to the internet so she couldn't upload anything. But she told me what happened:
Her MetroMobility ride suddenly was stopped by the truck in front of them at a green light. What in the world was happening? Was he in the wrong lane to make a left hand turn? Engine trouble? Illness? Nope. There was a mommy duck and several children crossing the road. How thankful we are that everyone stopped for the ducks crossing! No babies lost their mommy, and the mommy didn't loose her children. It was duck walk time!
I was told the little ones were very fuzzy cute.
And no one honked their horn and scared those sweeties! They all waited from all directions!
There are small miracles in this world.

Dad's Day

Happy Dad's Day to all the CatDaddies out there. We are dad-less, so we hope you all really preciate your Dad.  I get my mommy is also a stand-in for a daddy (like others of you). So I am going to be nice to her today (and every day). So I suppose the following are no no's:


Instead, I'M going to be a sweet girl:
 And I am not going to be saying anything bad about blogger not letting me place or even size my pictures today!
love ya,

Boxes

 
Yes, it is here. International Box Day (as apposed to Boxing Day, which is something entirely different, falling on December 26, and not celebrated in the USA).
We are sorry we are late posting. But blogger had lots of fun deleting our post after we already put it on the Cat Blogosphere!
Since we don't have any current pictures in our 'puter we are relying on old ones, as you know. So this box was from shortly after I came to live here:

















love ya, QUINN

Thankful Thursday

Mommy finally opened my special delivery! Thank you, sweet friends who sent this!
Guess what? Yes there was catnip. A boingy thing. Canned Cat food to try. And oh, oh, oh, Catfood for the Catlover's Soul (my absolute fav canned food--I started on it way back when I was in Feline Rescue) has crunchies! I get to try these!
No other packages to open, but
Cat foodies, and a toy boingy thing, and crunchies and catnip!
Almost makes me want Mommy to photograph them. Almost.
The catnip is made for humans with opposable thumbs. They need to twist the top to grind fresh catnip. But... CATNIP!
Today I am thankful for lovely friends who shared some swag from BlogPaws. And my Mommy for grinding the fresh catnip.
And all of you, of course!
love ya,
QUINN

Caturday, Finally

 Sorry we haven't been really blogging lately. Computer has been ccrrazzy. No, Foxfire has been ccrrazzy. Sheesh. Internet Explorer did work, but we have used Firefox for years. So far what we have come up with is our Adobe download is the problem.  We uninstalled all versions of anything that said Adobe and just went to the website and downloaded the latest version. So far cross your fingers, everything is okay.
You see, all of a sudden the hourglass thingy wouldn't stop going around and around and our pointer was blinking really fast all the time. And then we would "hang". This was limiting our time on line and we couldn't watch any videos because it was too frustrating to do either. We haven't tried videos yet.  Was this Firefox's problem or Adobe? We honestly don't know. Cross your paws, and if it starts again, anyone know another solution?
So, anyway, this week Barb came and Mommy disappeared with her. So no scritchies from Barb! Other than that, it was 92 degrees Fahrenheit one day and Friday was really gray all day. Nothing much else to say.
Mommy scritchied me and Furminated me and I got my foodies and had lots of nappies. Usual days, really Hope everyone has a great weekend. Maybe now we can stay on line long enough to actually catch up on Bloglovin'.
 Mommy has yet to figure out camera pictures on this thing, can you believe?  We're still using old ones. Maybe that is next??? THEN she can figure out how to get her game on this puter (she bought it years ago). Oh, wait. I don't have to run away from pictures any more! Mommy, go ahead and figure out how to get your game on this puter!
Pictures can wait. ;-)
Lovely weekend, all
