Who was it that said, " The Early Bird Catches the Worm "? I would like to meet this person. I would like to meet this person and ask " Are You Insane " ? I am an early riser by nature, and I am a morning person. Even in the summer I rarely sleep much past six a.m.
This morning however I arose at 4:10 a.m. . I tried to go back to sleep as I kept hearing the voices of several middle aged to seniors that I've crossed paths with in my life saying " The older I get, the less I sleep. " or " I don't need that much sleep anymore. "
Well I've got news for all of those people, I DO NEED SLEEP ! I like sleeping. And I am not interested in catching any stupid worm! I tried falling back to sleep but usually if I wake up after 4:00 a.m. I have a difficult time going back to sleep. So I will just walk around like a zombie from "Night of the Living Dead " all day!
O.K. that is enough. My poor baby Spooky was not feeling good all week. We discovered upon examination that he had an infected tooth or gum. Our vet is open on Saturdays at 7:30 so about 10 minutes past 7:oo we went in search of the big lover boy. Because he was sick he was nowhere to be found. Cats tend to hide or go off somewhere when they think they are going to die. Spooky can be a little dramatic at times. Anyway, after waking Kate up for help, It took us 45 minutes to find him! So much for getting to the vet. before anyone else! No matter though as he has his meds now and already seems to be doing better!
After that little adventure into the animal kingdom, we decided to take a ride out to mom's house. I couldn't get a great photo of this guy, as we were traveling too fast for me to be camera ready, but from what I've been told he is traveling across the country for a cause. I am not sure what that cause is. I vaguely remember hearing about him somewhere. He is pushing a giant inflatable ball of the Earth. He has a dog with him and carries a back pack. Kate and I had seen him in town the day before but I didn't have my camera with me.
Once we got to mom's house we had a nice little visit. My mother collects angels. She has many, many angels. This is only one of the many sections of angels mom has hanging everywhere! My mother always has an angel watching over her. Literally! My husband, Katie and I visited and had tea. Jake hooked up her digital converter box for her to her bedroom t.v. Because our government doesn't dictate at all about how things will be done. It is a completely democratic society.
The opinions expressed by this blogger are just that and should not be taken to seriously!
More angels! Mom is an angel herself .
And now, in honor of Fathers Day, a little poem for my husband, Jake.
You can be rough and gruff and opinionated too,
still I cherish the day that I met you.
Many good times and bad times have come and gone,
but you've always been there to sing my song.
For you there is nothing that I wouldn't do,
as I know for me, you feel the same way too.
You are the hardest working man I know,
all the while keeping your family in tow.
You've made me laugh, you've made me cry,
but ultimately you make me sigh.
The happiness you've given me I cannot measure,
But it's all of the days that I will treasure.
For me there is no better man than you,
forever faithful , forever true.
Happy Fathers Day, I love you.
