Wednesday morning Mommy called in to maintenance that her shower head (that's where the water comes out) exploded. And we waited. And we waited. The next day she called to find out when it would be fixed and was told that since it wasn't an emergency, it was placed on a "three day", so they had three days to respond. Which, she was told, was much better than a "ten day". So Friday afternoon maintenance came and it took about 2 seconds to replace the whole thing. Now I tell you, humans are really kinda sad. They don't grow nice furs to keep warm all over their bodies, and they don't clean themselves like we do, they get water to do it! **shudder**
I told Mommy it was lame to take a picture of this shower head thing. I'm right, aren't I? Otherwise she'll take one for you. Or two or three.
Now our next bit of news is that it has been so rainy that the city next to us has been declared a disaster area because of flooding. Actually suburbs all around us are dealing with flooding. And many cities in the Midwest have flooding problems, too. And there have been lots of bad storms and tornadoes around the country, too. Mommy said when she was young (elebenty eleben years ago) she had to leave home in a boat, so she kinda understands the nastiness of floods. And she also has been through a lot of tornadoes, so she understands that devastation. Total cities can be destroyed in a few minutes! Mommy jokes that she spent her childhood (when not in school or church) in a "fruit cellar", which she explains is like a basement. They had games and stuff, and treats for the family dog (they wanted him safe, too).
Oh, and the President was here, and he ate at a place called Matt's Bar, which Mommy used to go to cause of their famous award-winning hamburgers. They have cheese in the middle! She wishes she could go again, but she doesn't drive, and planning a trip there is hard.
We have more storms coming this weekend, which Mommy says is not good for the flooding problem at all. Lots of businesses are affected by this. The guy that runs one of the riverboat cruise businesses says that they have lost lots of monies cause they can't cruise in flood waters, and he feels really bad about the college kids he employs, cause they can't work, and they need monies for school. Something called the Taste of Minnesota, usually in St.Paul, has moved to a city called Waconia. They want to be open for the July 4th weekend celebrations every year, and this wouldn't happen in St. Paul cause of the flooding.
Whew. I hope that's it for the news roundup. That was hard work.
Naptime is calling my name! Quinn, Quinn.
Take care all of you. I'm going to be napping now!
Oh, and before I forget, there's lots of blogoversaries and gotcha day celebrations! Check out the linkies at the Cat Blogosphere!

You don't really want pictures of the shower head thingy do you? Didn't think so.
