Cat Tales ~ New Year's Resolutions

Me and the other Kitties has been pondering what things We should improve upon in the coming year. And here's what We has come up with....

We will not perch on Mommy's chest in the middle of the night and stare into her eyes until she wakes up.

We will not play Herd of Thundering Wildebeests Stampeding Across the Plains of the Serengeti over Mommy's bed while she's trying to sleep.

Screaming at the can of food will not make it open itself.

We cannot leap through closed windows to catch birds outside. If We forget this and bonk Our head on the window and fall behind the couch in the attempt, We will not get up and do the same thing again.

When it rains, it will be raining on all sides of the house. It is not necessary to check every door.

Bird do not come from the bird feeder. We will not knock it down and try to open it up to get the birds out.

We will not stuff Ourselves into the rather small bird feeder (with tail hanging out one side) and expect the birds to just fly in. 

There are three very large Dogs that live with Us. They have lived with Us for several years. We don't have to act as if We've just discovered the Demon Horror of the Universe each time one of them appears.

We will not play "dead cat on the stairs" while people are trying to take laundry up or down.

We will not walk on the keyboard when Mommy is writing important emiognaioerp ga3qi4 taija3tgv aa35a.

We will not be miffed at Mommy all day and then kiss her on the nose at 2:00 a.m. to tell her that she is forgiven and can now pet me.

We will not puff Our body to twice its size for no reason after Mommy has finished watching a horror movie.

We will not swat Mommy's head repeatedly when she's on the floor trying to do sit ups.

When Mommy is typing at the computer, her forearms are NOT a hammock.

Computer and TV screens do not exist to backlight a lovely Kitty Tail.

We will not stand on the bathroom counter, stare down the hall and growl at nothing after Mommy or Daddy has finished watching The X-Files.

Oh, and one more for Me .....
Me will try hard not to make Meself the center piece of the Holiday table.

Happy New Year!

Zoo Lights

On this week's road-trip, we're going to the Denver Zoo. Every year they celebrate the Holiday Season with their Zoo Lights.

Hubby, Daughter & I took 6 of the 7 Grands to view this wonderful display of wattage last weekend. It was fun! I can't take credit for all the photos - the Grands kinda got tired of Grandma stopping frequently to take pics - so I have included a link to the image source of the photos I snagged off the web. (Plus, keeping tabs on all those kids - in the dark and in a crowd - was a bit like herding cats! Sorry Gomez for the reference!)

And while the Grands enjoyed the Animal Lights, I enjoyed the multitude of twinklers strung in the trees under which we walked.

Trail of Lights

This month's road trips are going to be fun, festive places!
Today I'm taking you to the Trail of Lights at the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield. Tickets to this event were a gift from our son and daughter-in-law. They're the BEST! I cannot take credit for all the pictures you are about to see because I went off and left my camera sitting on the kitchen counter! The first four pictures I took with my phone and the rest I snagged some off the web (click here to see more images!).
