Poor EM. She lives such a difficult life. Look at this face.

No, wait a minute.  That’s not the face she wants me to show you.  Let’s try this one.

Aug12009 006Now, she’ll claim that it is entirely because she’s so distraught, but actually she’s watching the camera strap.  She’s a drama queen.  Just not a very bright one.

Aug12009 008See?  She’s just a big old fraud.  How can she claim unhappiness when a camera strap thrills her?  Silly old kitty.

Busy weekend.  I must tell you about the cemetery.  My BB, BSIL and I all went to the cemetery on Saturday to get a picture of Dad’s headstone so that we could match it for Mom, as closely as possible.  It had rained a couple of hours before we went.  We had a camera and cell phones.  When we got there, Dad’s headstone was completely covered in mud.  An inch or so.  BB, in a moment of problem solving brilliance, got a branch and scraped the headstone.  It left a 1/4″ to 1/2″ layer of mud.  That’s when my BSIL went to her car and got a very small box of tissues and tried to wipe it off.  By this time, BB, BSIL and I were laughing pretty hard.  Anyway, they had gotten the majority of the mud off,but you could not see the writing or anything, so I went in search of a container for water.  I found a fairly new flexible orange traffic cone and held the bottom and filled it with water.  I got a goodly amount of the mud off, but BB wanted to get more, so he went back with the cone and started to fill it up again.  After exclaiming that he could drool into the cone faster than the water was filling, the water ceased to flow.  I have photographic evidence, but no signed releases.  Lord help us, we were wet, muddy and laughing our butts off, but we got the shots and probably amused our deceased parents no end.  And, we all thought we would be all weepy and everything.

And, since it’s Monday, and I’m not really sure what happened to the weekend, either, I will leave you with my soundtrack of the day.  Cream and “Tales of Brave Ulysses”.

Have a good one!!!!!!!!!!

    It takes a good amount of humor to get through the trials of life. Who knew you had to be well prepared to go to the cemetery? Em is a very pretty kitty and Cream is a lovely way to start the week.

    Awww, EM, such a sweet kitteh face!
    ditto what Margene wrote about the humour.
    I was laughing right along, and yes, it delights me also, to no end, believing our peeps are enjoying the antics and joining in.
    YES to your tune of the day!
    Happy MoonDay to you! xoxox

    Love the Prima Donna pictures! I’m glad you had some laughs visiting your dad’s marker. Wish someone had a video of you all cleaning off the headstone. Happy Monday to you.

    You know I love me some kitty pictures (but don’t tell Frank that it’s not of him, hehehe). He gets distracted by the camera strap too 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your story about your father’s marker. Laughter is the best medicine, they say. That was how Bear and I got through at times when his father passed away. While we were going through items in his father’s computer room tossing out old papers and such, we came across many things that had us all rolling in laughter and tears.

    Wishing you a great start to the week!
