I know this is a little late, but after the horrific events in Paris Friday night, I just couldn’t bring myself to post this as I had planned on Saturday.

~ Animated teddies from Sevenoaks Art ~

After being glued to CNN for most of the weekend, I feel the need for something a little lighthearted and fun, so I hope you’ll indulge me. Besides, you know what? It’s never too late to celebrate Teddy Bear Day!

If you go down to the woods today

You’re in for a big surprise.

If you go down to the woods today

You’d better go in disguise!

For every bear that ever there was

Will gather there for certain,

Because today’s the day the

Teddy Bears have their picnic.

~ Lyrics by Jimmy Kennedy ~

I stopped there because I’ve always found the rest of the song a little scary.

Please remember on today of all days you’re never too old to have a teddy bear!

Even gorgeous vampires have a softer side!

It’s Ted! Need I say more?

Okay. I have to admit, this is a little obsessive!

Even boy bands need some downtime.

It can’t be a surprise that Ellen’s a Teddy Bear fan.

And finally, because I know you probably never thought I’d be able to tie in cuddly teddies with the Winchester brothers from Supernatural, well think again!

Best Boy Ever

Rusty yawningWelcome home, Rusty.  Romeo was on the other side of the door leading into the kitchen, when I came in from the garage into the laundry room, and was crying.  I forgot to mention that Romeo was crying when I took Rusty into the laundry room and closed the door behind me.  The two of them are buddies, and are great playmates.Romeo looking at carrier 2

Romeo couldn’t wait until I put down the carrier onto the kitchen floor.  He was walking in front of me, going back and forth, impatient for me to put down Rusty’s carrier and let him out.  It was difficult not to step on Romeo as I moved forward.  You know how that is, if you have cats.

Finally, I was able to put Rusty’s carrier down.  Before I let him out, I decided right then and there that this was a blog in the making.  Got my camera and all the photos in this blog are a result.

I thought Romeo was so impatient to have his buddy home and out of the carrier, but no!  He was impatient to go into the carrier!

Rusty had to re-acquaint himself with his surroundings, and he was so happy to be back home!

Yawning is a good way to help you relax:

Curling and grooming are sure signs of feeling good!

Now that I know Rusty is doing well and has aclimated to being home again, I think I’ll check out what Romeo’s been up to.

Pussy Cats 3

“Best boy ever!”  Those are the words Rusty’s dental hygienist wrote on her report for Rusty’s dental cleaning.  Nicole carried Rusty out in his carrier to me in the waiting room.  I was hoping that it went well.

Nicole was smiling from ear to ear.  She was in love!!  “I didn’t have to wrap him as I normally do with the other cats.  He just stayed on my lap and I did whatever I needed to do in his mouth.”

My happiness was short-lived, however.  She gave me the news that Rusty was having a problem with his other lower canine tooth.  (The first one was removed last year.)  She did temper that news by saying we could wait 6 months and then bring him in for X-rays and maybe the tooth could be saved by filling the bad part – it wasn’t at a point right now that made…

Marceline: “It’s keeping us in the spotlight. As every good starlet knows, there are things you simply must do to keep the attention of your fans.”

Alice: “And what fans are those? Witches? The board members at the SPCA?”

Marceline: “Don’t be such a stick, sister girl. Just act sexy and smile a bit more.”

Alice: “I don’t feel very sexy with a fake tail shoved in my ear.”

Marceline: “And how sexy will you feel when we drop off the Lucky Strike Box Office Flames list?”

Alice: “Oh. I didn’t really think about that. Being on the list means I never have to pay for drinks in this town.”

Marceline: “Exactly. Now arch your back and purr like you mean it.”

Buck: “Your foot is stuck in the drain. Why did you call me? I sell ice cream. Did you get hungry while you were waiting for someone who can actually help you to get here?”

Mae: “You’re a man, for God’s sake. Do something.”

Buck: “You got a chainsaw?”

Mae: “Very funny. Look, if you help me out, I’ll make it worth your while. I can show you a good time. I got moves.”

Buck: “Like the move you made climbing up on that stool and shoving your foot where it doesn’t belong? That’s attractive.”

Mae: “Come on, give a girl a break. I gotta get back to the diner and sling some more hash.”

Buck: “Well, maybe we could loosen it up somehow. You got any bacon grease?”

Mae: “Whaddya want that for?”

Buck: “It’ll help things slide in and out easier.”

Mae: “Oh. And if we move it up and down enough times it’ll pop like a cork.”

Director: “Cut!”

Mae: “Thank God. I still don’t understand the dialogue in that scene.”

Director: “You guys just had sex.”

Buck: “We did?”

Director: “Yeah. But we can’t show it. This is just how we get past the censors.”
