Starlight, Starbright, I had better see a shooting star tonight!

Well, we did it again!  It was only two years ago when he and I and the him-in-law layed in the back of a pickup in a farm drive in the country so we could watch the Perseid meteor shower only to learn that it wasn’t right night.

We sat here last night until our necks ached and then I went out again after midnight because I refused to believe that we only saw 3!  We were looking up and we didn’t blink.  Before I went to sleep, I googled to make sure we had the right night and learned that best viewing is in the NE sky.  We were looking up not northeast…can that really make a difference…and I answered myself – apparently!!

We are going to a Royals game tonight.

Surely once we get out of the city after the game, we will be dazzled.  At least I’ll have on my sequined Royals cap so he will see flashes of light.

Its kind of like the week after Christmas…

Before the wedding our friends from Newton, Rod and Kim came for an overnight visit.

I was so looking forward to seeing them…then the weekend in Des Moines with family for the wedding and now I don’t know what to do with myself…sort of lonely.  We took Baxter and Truman to the vet yesterday for their annual shots.  Of course, true to form, Truman had to have a bath when we got home because the car ride stresses him out so much…at least he just peed in his carrier this time…oh…and Howled at the top of his lungs.

He is totally avoiding me today!

Tonight we have the Royals…and the stars!!!!

Until next time….

  1. Giving a cat a bath is like trying to force a square peg in a round hole, except the peg has retractable claws and and is able to damage you. You are a brave woman.
