Sunday Selfie From The Couch


We have had only a dusting of snow, but...OMC! The poor furs and their peeps who live where that blizzard called Jonah is walloping about and lashing out with all its snowy fury. Yikes!

We hope evfurry one there will be safe and stay warm as they hunker down to wait it out.

Pawppy has furmily and furends in that area...we will try to call them to check on them.

The kitties  had to hunker down  on Friday, but I had a lot of fun being an inspector and snoopervisor!
Early in the morning, there was stomping of feet that we did not recognize on our back steps...that can only mean (trouble),  fun and excitement in my mind...so the kitties  ran off and hid, but I barked my song of joy and jumped up to see who was coming to my den!

They made lots of noise in the kitchen and even more in the bathroom.OMD!
They stole the kitchen faucet...really?? But now there is another one there, Phew, I can still get water:) And its quieter in there, too...the old tap was dripping and a few times it even dared to spray water in the faces of growlmy & pawppy, BOL!! One night growlmy heard a crack, and then she had to really work hard to get the tap shut off...a ring had broken...sheesh...good riddance then.
They hope this new one will serve them fur many water filled years:)

Then growlmy and pawppy had to scramble and take evfurrything out of the pantry. OMD! What a way to have to do the so called spring cleaning...it was forced upon them:) That is the only way those intruders could get at the pipes and stuff that serve the water to the bathroom...oh the joys of living in an old (1907), farm house...sigh...
Those dudes put their dirty boots all over the bathroom floor, and even left prints inside the tub, wow. They had to take apart the faucet in the tub...it was dripping and dripping and making our water pump work way too often. So now the electric bill should improve. We don't have a water bill, cause we have a well, out here in these rural parts.
Then...and its a good thing I can go outside to do...you know what..., they stole the toilet...took it right out of our den and said it was going to the toilet graveyard...sheesh, after all those years of good service? It was stamped inside with 1948 as the time of its birth...should it not have gone to a toilet museum instead?? Pawppy said no way was he going to put it in the garden as a planter, BOL!!
That old monster toilet was running so much that it was going to run away right out the den said Growlmy one day. so now there is a new potty in there! Sparkling and white:) And it flushes with a big whoosh, and then there is silence! OMD!! No more runaway potties, BOL!!

OK, now Growlmy has to go to work, so we hope you all have a wunderfur  Sunday!

I am blog-hopping with The Cat On My Head, who are the hosts of the Sunday Selfies.

  4. We're lucky that our Dad does all kinds of repairs in our house. But he usually doesn't do it without lots of yelling and stomping and scary noisy screaming dragon power tools! Yipes!

    4. We would love new countertops and floortile here too...at least that is what I hear growlmy say. We only have one potty here to serve us...no plumbing upstairs...yup, my den is old and simple simon, BOL!

      You will have to settle fur precooked bacon...we have that here once in a blue moon...or we did, but now the peeps do not eat anything processed like that...sigh...they say they are 'eating clean'. That is partly how pawppy lost all his weight...
