Thank You A/C

Here is a sign the temperature in the house is back to tolerable. It's gotta be pretty warm in a shark's belly.

A Boy and His Ball

He arguably is the best ballplayer in the house with the possible exception of the food guy.

A/C - OK

I had an air conditioner/furnace fixer guy out yesterday. What had happened was the filter was so clogged that it got sucked into the blower. I immediately blamed the boyz for all the fur that likely was the main culprit but sheepishly I had to admit I hadn't changed the filter since the end of winter.

So I've assigned Theo the task of making sure the filter is changed more often.

We did struggle through a couple of warm and muggy nights and none of the boyz seemed to appreciate the living conditions giving me their best 'hey idiot the house is hot- time to do something about it' look. I had to tell them the story of their predecessor the late great Mr. Max having to live most of his life without central air. Back then we got by with a window A/C and a few fans. Poor Mr. Max (who spent many a hot summer day resting behind a fan which likely was the warmest place in the house).

Air Conditioner Down

Sunday our air conditioner started making a very loud grinding noise. Diego-san immediately got up and went to one of the air vents to investigate. I shut down the system and we've been without air conditioning for the past few very muggy days.  Diego-san in the meanwhile has turned into a puddle.

Thompson's Haiku

I reach out my paw
It is the least I can do
I hope you like it

Once More With Feeling

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of my all time favorite TV shows.  I'm re-watching the entire series again.  Apparently Diego-san is also becoming fond of the show.

These Shoes Aren't Made for Walkin

I don't know what it is about these shoes, but they have become Thompson's best friend. He spends time with them nightly.

Dreamin Big and Cold

It's a scorcher out there. Theo thinks a little chilled salmon sounds good.

Theo didn't want to take a selfie without me.  So I guess it's more of a selfies.

Notice all the geometry going on in this photo with the angle of my elbow matching the shape of the space between my elbow and Diego-san. Notice also the perfect angle of Diego-san's ears.  I think some company should add this photo to their geometry textbook.

Diego-san's Handsome Advice

Being way handsome is hard work.  It's really important to get your 21 hours a sleep a day to maintain your manly appearance.

Two Out of Three Boyz Prefer Shoes

On warm summer nights the boyz apparently would much rather hang out with my shoes than they would me.

Today's Feet-ure

Theo may not have a twinkle in his eyes but he most certainly has twinkle toes.

Pile On

After a not so good weekend it was nice to come home to find the boyz must have missed me.

Bob vs. Theo

I quoted Theo a lyric from a Bob Dylan song, "Don't you know the sun can burn your brains right out?" He didn't seem too amused.

Healing Wish

Even when he's not feeling well (skipping meals, general lethargy), he still looks fabulous. Hopefully he's back to himself soon...

I Stopped Wondering Why

Theo consistently finds unique ways to exist... like sleeping contorted in a tipped over empty laundry basket.

The 4th

It's our country's Independence Day. While Diego-san understands there are limits on his own independence (there are house rules that he just ignores for example), he certainly has a freer existence than many other kitties in this world.  And while his preference probably would be to live in a home where the servant was 100 percent devoted to him rather than having divided attention among other kitties, Diego-san is willing to live with that because of the regularly scheduled guaranteed free food and general good nature of the servant.  At least there isn't a fourth kitty in the mix (as had been the talk a few years back).

The Day Before

He thinks it's peaceful now but he also knows tomorrow night will be different. That is the night the sky will be on fire and there will be a lot of loud booms throughout the day.

Flagrant Fragance Part 2

Thompson has a slight disagreement with Theo. He doesn't think my shoes/feet smell like roses.  He thinks they smell like petunias.
