Spring Fling 2014


When Mommy told me we were gonna do the Spring Fling, I thought, "I'll fling myself down on this bed and maybe spring will be here when I get up."  No such luck, kittehz.

Mommy is supposed to tell about a date that's special.  July is special to my Mommy because that's when her and our Daddy first "met".   She was babysitting for a family and their backyard shared a fence with Daddy's family.  So over the fence he went to see Mommy.  They visited while she watched after her charges and he playfully picked up a miniature Lousville slugger (baseball bat)  and long story short:  Mommy ended up with a chip out of her shin bone.   She says that really made an impression on her.  HahaMeow!

Luckily, she didn't hold it against him.  They married two years later on the date of their first meeting, July 7.   That was almost 30 yrs ago.  (they're older than dirt)

Happy Spring Fling, kittehz.  We hope the real Spring will be here soon.  Purrs, ya'll.
