the gift

What's up with this:
I brought my papasan a gift this morning. It was 5am and they were getting up so I thought it was the best time to gift them. OK, so it was still alive and moving but did they have to squish it? I was showing that I'm still a good hunter even if my previous family removed my front claws.

(Note from papasan: it was large, 6 legged and yes, Orion is an excellent hunter, but I'd rather have an alarm clock or radio wake me in the morning, not "gifts" like this.)

new year 2012

Ok, so I'm a little late in typing in new comments. It's really hard with fur between my toes and dew claws instead of thumbs!

My papasan went to 2 ROC days and picked up some really interesting smelling fluffy stuff! Some is sparklely and some is from a baby alpaca (what ever that is). That stuff is wet and drying in the garage; I can't get to it and check it out. Oh, ROC Day is also known as St. Distaff's Day. She says it's about spinners and weavers going back to work after the Christmas holidays. All I know is that for Christmas we got a new toy, a chirping soft bird.

We also lost a good old friend, Lady Grey.  My papasan says Lady Grey was living outdoors in California and when they moved here, Lady Grey stayed indoors because she was older. We don't know how old Lady Grey was but we're guessing 18 human years. That's really old in my fuzzy years.

Anyway, Happy New Year to all.

a Samhain Blessing to you all

May the ancestors deliver blessings on you and yours...
May the new year bear great fruits for you...
May your granted wishes be as many as the seeds in a pomegranate...
May the slide into darkness bring you light...
May the memories of what has been keep you strong for what is to be...
May this Samhain cleanse your heart, your soul, and your mind!
--- traditional Samhain blessing

ever wonder

Ever wonder why humans wear stinky stuff?  Well, my papasan rides the train and bus and comes home smelling like ... well, let's just say she runs to the shower just after feeding us. Then I settle in and make sure my papasan smells right while she complains of the other humans smelly stuff. I reassure her that her elbows smell just right.

Well on to more important stuff! The Texas Country Reporter Fair is on this weekend and they are scrambling to get ready. Which means I need to make sure everything is packed properly and meets with my approval. I still can't understand why they keep telling me to get out of the boxes. Come on! They smell nice, speaking of smells. Leather, wool and such. It's important that all the products get my pawprint of approval.

Oh well, back to checking on boxes and napping.

Craft Show listing

Well, it's pretty much done:  my papasans have 6 ( count them 6 ) shows!

The first is this August 18-21 in Irving, Texas. It's called Merry Meet and they are working really hard to get a bunch of stuff done.

Next is Fall on the Mound in Flower Mound, Texas on September 24th. 100% crafts! I need to ask if they will have any toys for me.

The next one is Monster Bash out at the Fort Worth Nature Refuge on October 1st. This is their 3rd annual event an it support the nature area and refuge.

Then it's up to Parker for Share the Harvest at Jacob's Reward Farm, October 15th. This is a very small group of hand crafters like my papsans who teach and share their obsession.

Next it's down to Waxahachie for Texas Country Reporter Fair on October 29th. That's just before Halloween, Kitt's and Sahmain's favorite holiday.

The last two are at local high schools, Keller Central HS and Bell HS.

That's a lot of work for them to do. I thought I'd help this past 2 days but I was told that paint and I do not mix.  (sigh) Green paint in my fur. Well, at least is combs out.
