First, the dogs waited until they knew SuM had left for work and then began barking and howling. Blondie opens her bleary eyes and spies the time; it's 6:10 a.m. Blondie growls herself and somehow (only the angels know) manages to fall back to sleep despite the recurring unwelcome sounds. Sigh. Blondie wakes again at 9:00 but stays in bed until the alarm at 9:30.
Blondie tries to enjoy brekkie and then makes her way to the living room - along with her big white cane - where the dogs, as expected, try to raise the roof. I could understand the barking and whining but, when the "mean" dog began to growl AT ME, I looked in the direction where she was ('cuz I couldn't really see her) and told her sternly that she was being "rude" and to knock it off. I then quickly grabbed the TV remote and switched the TV onto the nature music channel. Then I put myself into protective custody on the covered porch. At this point, it was only around 11:10 and I had to sit waiting at least until 11:30. I didn't realize I couldn't listen to my radio app because I could hear the nature music through the windows that opened out onto the porch. Oh, well. I'll survive. When the food finally arrived, I had to make several trips inside with it, but the dogs at least stayed away from me. Then, finally, I got to retreat to absolute safety. In all this time, I hadn't see a whisker of any of the cats, so I believe they had taken sanctuary in SuM's bedroom. Poor things.
The rest of the day was punctuated with more barking and howling. Seriously, how can these dogs be having any enjoyment at all if they're so stressed out. ::shakes head:: When I phoned to place my order for next week, I got the boss, so the place must have been really busy.
I had a thought resurface from yesterday that had also been a recent clue on Jeopardy!
and also showed up on my cellphone's newsfeed. Did you know that the origin of the hairless Sphynx cat is NOT Egypt? Nope, the kitten was born right here in TO. Talk about pulling our tails ... or is that telling a tall tale?
Enjoyed watching yet another random epi of Castle
. In this one, Beckett is trying to attract the attention of the really bad guy who is poolside at a fancy hotel. So she emerges from the pool - like a goddess - in a one-piece red bathing suit with all sorts of interesting
cutouts. Once out of the pool, she flings a sheer pareo around her hips and then does her best to entice him, all while Castle is doing his best not to choke on his dwinkie-with-an-umbrella! Oh, good times. So, naturally, I've recorded tonight's random epi to watch tomorrow ... while I do my best to ignore the dawgs. Sigh.This entry was originally posted at http://helenkacan.dreamwidth.org/1794598.html. Please comment there using OpenID.
