Hi sweet PawPaw!
Well, it's Big Bro Will's day off today so Mom doesn't have to feed the Earthlings before she leaves for her last day of classes (yay!!). She also doesn't have to take the bus so we have some extra time and I wanted to come see you before she leaves.

I'm so happy that CC is still here and that CoCo and Rosie get to finish out their months. I'd say they've pretty well finished them out now, even if the don't end up getting every last day. And a little birdie tells me that Kieara is getting ready to campaign over on the New CMR if there is no CC. At least she's going into her campaign knowing that CC could blip out and not being taken by surprise.

Hmm .. maybe those two rowdy gray sibs of ours have some pull in high places after all. Or maybe they have some dirt on someone up there, mol. Either way, don't worry be happy, right?

Oh, yowsers, I just realized the goofy blogger was typing this on MY page! Thank goodness for c/p! There, we're back!

Three more days in the deep fryer before it starts to go back to normal! Right now it's not too bad at all and the windows are open taking full advantage!

Big Bro Will's car isn't at Baljit's, Baljit didn't have the equipment to figure out what's up with it. It's around the corner at a place called Cromptons, so we can go there to sprinkle Angel dust on it. And when it's ready Will can just walk over there and get it which works great. Sure hope it's ready today!

Mom's friend Linda called and tomorrow (Thursday) they're going to go out to lunch. Mom is done the classes today so that's a perfect way to celebrate. She just has a little running around town to do is all but Will is off Thursday too so she should have the car but she can take the putt-putt if she has to on that trip!

Ooh! I think I see a few more ripe blackberries in the back there. Let's get them! -- Sm:hearts;key

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Angel Misty just invited us both to come swimming at Sunshine Mountain, and she's planning a picnic, too. I told her we would bring along lots of fruit. Maybe even some blackberries from our back yards, how does that sound?

Well, we survived Day One of the mini-heatwave! And Mom got to her classes and back. Big Bro Will's car is at the garage and as of closing time they had figured out what's happening but not WHY it is happening. They'll leave a message on the answering machine tomorrow & hopefully Big Bro Will can have his car sprung from the shop by the time Mom gets home on the bus. Which was not bad, really. She just wants to get her wheels back is all.

Okay, let's have some lemonade & then head down to our earth homes to pick some berries for the picnic. If there are any LEFT for the picnic. After all, we DO have to do quality control, right? -- your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
No, ShowmeCats isn't still going strong, they shut down over 2 years ago! All of a sudden, just poof! Turns out they had some kind of one-year startup grant that didn't get renewed. But what IS still going strong are the kitties who made friends there. They started a few FB groups and it was confusing for a while, but we stuck with one of the groups and all the main families are there. Two years later! Zoe Monique's Hairballz group is kind of an offshoot of that group.

So one thing MY family learned from the Great CC-Non-Apocalpyse of 2014 is that it's not just CC kitties who are the greatest. Catster has a lot of cool kitties too, and ShowmeCats did, and FB does ... so like I said, it's the kitties that are great and the websites are just the places they choose to gather. Cue up the Gloria Gaynor here, because We Will Survive, mol.

Yep, I am so Wiser that they can't lock me out of anywhere! Get it, Wiser Lock Company?? Hope they have them down in the States or that sounded really goofy. Or even better, I am the King of the Wiserhood. Wiser's Deluxe! Even though it's Angel Pierre who is buried on the grounds of the distillery where they used to make the stuff. Oh now I am just getting goofy! -- your silly Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
No, I'M not anywhere near a COTD, I got my last one back in April. And it almost surely WILL be my last one. The next family member isn't up for one till Angel Jezebel's birthday in October. Also not very likely to be happening. Catty Shack is what I was talking about the other day, it just tickled Angel Mallow pink that it looked like they were going to get one more before the old CC folds its tent and wanders off into the night. Or something like that anyway.

Good thing we've got the kind of sense of humour where we can laugh in the face of imminent destruction, huh? That's because we know the REAL secret. CC is just a "cat"-alyst for us felines to get together and have fun. What's really important is the bunch of us purrsonalities and the relationships we build. And no corporate entity can take THAT away so NYAH, Lumina dudes!

Gee, I can be pretty wise when I want to be, can't I? Actually Angel Mallow was saying something very similar over on a Catster group today. She told them about ShowmeCats and how that group of kitties is still together having fun outings and taking care of one another, a whole TWO YEARS after their site went lights out. And even cooler, their site was only up for a year to start with!

Yep, Mallow is sort of the boss lady. When there needs to be cattitude shown, she just kind of slips out and gets it done. Mikey is more the "official" voice of the family. And when we really mean business, he & A. Mallow haul out their Royal titles and stand together. Who would've thought we'd ever see THAT?

I hear that tomorrow (or maybe today by the time you see this) is Hammock Day. That means that surely Mikey & Dolly will be cuddled up in their Hello Kitty Hammock, the one Gracie gave Dolly for her first birthday. Which is actually coming up soon. Her fifth birthday I mean. How time does fly!

Anyway, I think we should beat the heat and emulate them, I have one of those woven hammocks with the good air flow and it looks very comfy to watch the sunset from. -- your cuddly Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Now let's not get carried away, it would be nice if we were around long enough for you to get another COTD, but I think we're stretching our luck to even still be here tomorrow. A. Mallow is giggling, though, because if we ARE still here tomorrow, she knows who has gotten COTD the last two years on July 20th and for it to happen again would be a super way to "punk" that page's Mom. Kind of a "gotcha" before Lights Out. You'll just have to wait & see, mol.

No, I was never the main kitty of the family, I'm more the quiet type in the background. Mikey was always the main kitty, then Mallow horned in. Or maybe it's "haloed" in. But Angel Duckie was always on the watch for brand new Angels for those special campaigns of hers, and she found me. It took them longer to find Mikey because there are more Earthlings around ... well, there WERE at the time, so many of those Earthlings have joined us at the Bridge since then that by now there just might be a few more of us than them.

It's a lovely clear night and that full moon is going to be appearing soon, let's find a good spot on the sand with our Snuggies and some buckeye candies and maybe some Charles Shaw wine ... better known as Two Buck Chuck. -- kisses always, your Smokey

Hi my sweet PawPaw!
Well, we're still here! Mom has been fine-tuning some of her saving and learning some good things. Did you hear that Angel Misty is having a gathering at her cloud after we do our Angel dust rounds? She wants to get together and share our favourite memories of Cat Channel. Kind of like an Irish wake for CC, mol. And if we are still here tomorrow for the full moon pawty, so much the better!

Um ... Catster's closing date was always a bit different from ours, I think they're a different project for the changeover team. How I hear it is they are keeping the Catster & Dogster websites to go with the magazines, just deep-sixing the Community area. BOOO!! Whereas all our Animal Channel sites are going completely lights-out and getting redirected to Petcha Dog, Petcha Cat ... and so on and so on. So we can hope, but basically the 18th IS our extension.

But NO Mr. Custer I do NOT wanna go!

Let's grab our Angel dust pouches and catch up to Angel Misty & the gang. I think I'll share about one of my my favourite CC memories, getting my first COTD badge. Thanks to Angel Duckie and her campaign crew, I was the very first one in the family to get one and that was the very first time anyone in our family met some of the kitties who turned out to become some of our greatest friends here!

Not to mention that I met YOU on my COTD day! -- your Smokey

Hi my sweet PawPaw!
Well, it looks like we get to play on CC through the weekend now, and I hear that Catster & Dogster have had their closing date extended to July 28th or 29th. I think they DO really mean it this time though, I wouldn't count on them putting it on the back burner for 2 1/2 years again. But it IS fun to think about, mol!

Mom has been busy with the paneling in the downstairs hall. It's the stuff in long thin strips, not the big sheets so it's been really slow going so far. She's cutting with the hacksaw so she can really fine-tune the pieces that go around the front door frame and the little window beside it. She started working yesterday at 5 in the afternoon "just for a few minutes" and next time she looked up the stairs at the clock it was almost 9! She was beat! But it's progressing, slowly but surely. She thought she would have blisters today & need to take a day off, but she's actually doing pretty good. Got papers to walk around and then later on she'll do more paneling. She's through the most fiddly part now and the rest should go faster!

Now that's a nice thought, all the cyber-pieces of CC forming a reef around Pinto Island for us to explore and for a while bunch of new life to spring up around. We can call it The Great CC Reef and it will form the foundation of Pinto Island because after all, that's what CC IS! And some of it will sink down into K. Pete's tunnels, too, I hear he's continuing the explorations over on the Mewsroom.

Now I ask you, could we pawsibly do even HALF of the wonderful things we do on some dippy forum about cat care? Those Lumina people just really do NOT "get it". And not because they're bad or anything, just because their heads are in other worlds.

Oh look! A flying monkey! And he dropped a banana! I think it landed near that tall palm tree that's sticking up, let's go get it for our basket! -- Hugs always, Smokey

Hi my sweet PawPaw!
Since CC has come back up, I'm going to make sure I stop in here before I let Mom go do any of her human things.

It looks like Ana & Haley & April & the Angels have deleted their account, they were the last blog on Angel Jezebel's page and now Patches' thank-you is. You know how we feel about that and I know how YOU feel. No way are we going to do "their" evil work for them, mol. We will stand here singing Kumbaya and they will have to wipe us off the face of the server if they want us gone. So there!

Yep, there is a gray spot on the corner behind the mallow mat from Angel Mallow's happy face rubbing. Mom is going to have to take a picture of it before she washes that wall, for sure. Today she MIGHT start the paneling. Might. Wouldn't take much to get her to change course, mol. But she does have to go get some good nails or screws to attach it with, she wants to use something with a little more "grab" than finishing nails.

Speaking of "grab", let's go for a walk by the waterfall in the jungle. Maybe stop for a while and watch the submarine races, mol. -- Your Smokey always

No need to blush, sweet PawPaw!
I know your secretary has been really busy with King Angel Elmie this last while. And of course we've been right there for all the activities on Pinto Island!

This week it's MY secretary's turn to be swamped what with those seminars all day every day. Then today when she was done she went over to the drivers license place to try & get a copy of her driving record for in case she gets a call about the driving jobs she's applied for. Well there wasn't even anywhere to park in the lot, they were so busy! So she went to Home Depot and will have to try the driving place again tomorrow. Before she comes home & has to deliver her papers first thing. It's quite a week but she learned a lot of good things about resumes today.

Now she just needs to carve out some time to actually DO the resume! And wouldn't you know, sis-in-law in Manitoba phoned tonight, too. MOL, this is why Mom is only looking for PART-time work!

Yep, Mom was kind of sad to take down my handiwork on the wallpaper, but she took a picture of it first. She's going to be sad when it comes time to do a really god cleaning on the living room walls because it will mean cleaning off the dark mark on the corner behind the Mallow mat, where Mallow used to rub her face because it was her happy place. She'll probably take a picture of that one first, too.

What a great day at Rainbow Rose Manor, celebrating with Mikey. Wow, I hardly even remember turning 9! -- kisses, Smokey

Angel PawPaw, you look AMAZING
in your shimmery flapper dress and I would be thrilled to do the Charleston with you and then go watch the water polo in my new golf cart! You sure know how to treat a guy, and ... oh can it be? An 888 layer pink salmon moonpie cake? Oh, this day just gets better and better since you got here, my love!

Oh how wonderful, a cookout with the piggy smoker and so many awesome goodies! And right after spending a great MHL night at the arena watching my Angel sibs win the Scamper Cup with the Rodent Rippers. It was a busy day today, but I made time for both of us to go to the arena & cheer them on. What a way to celebrate the day that marked the beginning of a very special life of almost 18 years with my very special forever family.

They didn’t plan it or anything, but would you believe that today my favourite person in the whole world, Big Bro Joe, came to see Mom and the Earthlings? And talk turned to ME, and some of the things they remember best about me. Mom, meanwhile, celebrated my Adoptiversary this morning by finally taking down the piece of wallpaper outside the door of Joe’s old room where I made my mark scratching at the door trying to wake him up way back in 1996 (near as we can figure).

Well I say it’s about time! They can’t keep it as a weird sort of shrine to me FOREVER, after all! But I know that they will keep my pawprints forever in their hearts and that’s the most important thing.

Okay, let's get in line for some of those great big burgers, hot off the grill. Hmmm ... a purple fedora and barkers jacket ... you have me very curious what Angel Elmie has up his sleeve tomorrow – kisses, Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
We don't know when the Coronation is, funny Mom was just thinking of that this morning. A. Elmie and Q. Sylvr Tuff have to figure that out between them. I know Q. Sylvr Tuff isn't much on live blogging and with Rhoamin giving her Mom worries she probably hasn't even thought about it. Elmie had maybe better think of a couple of times that would be good for him and run them by her.

Whenever it is, we will be there in our finery ready to celebrate. Or if it's on Pinto Island, maybe that finery should be our Hawaiian shirts and sarongs.

I'm sure the Evie & Mallow Bakery would open up a Pinto Island branch for A. Elmie! And I'm sure Angel Sir Leo would bring his famous Crab Shack too, and Angel Mallow might even bring her State Fair Fried Food cart to special occasions. And of course fish fries, lots of fish fries. -- your Smokey guy

No problem, sweet PawPaw!
I know you would have to remember how we just had my birthday, right before yours & Gracie's big bash & figured you just had it mixed up with A. Mallow's birthday this coming Monday. Just put it down to your Mom's head going in all directions with The Elmie Show, mol. And her x-ing me out was probably more of it. We need to tell her to take it easy a bit, I think.

It's a nice sunny evening here, supposed to rain a bit the next few days and then .... sit down for this one ... back to the 80's! And I do NOT mean the decade of hair bands and shoulder pads, mol.

Ohhh, that fish & chips Angels Elmie & Pouncer made was just the BEST! We need to make sure there are lots of feasts like this when Elmie is King. We can all pitch in & help, I mean we would not expect the King to be slaving over a hot fryer all day, would we?

Well, if the result is this good, maybe we would :) -- your Smokey

Goofy PawPaw Petal!
Your head is spinning from that kiss I just gave you, mol. I just had my birthday! It's April 30th, but my picture says May 1st because that's when I got my 6th COTD, the day after my birthday!

Just to really confuse things, A. Mallow is the birthday kitty coming up in a few days, HER birthday is MAY 30th! And Angel Jezebel's crossing day is the day after. And that leads into all the birthdays & crossing days in June. Oh, and my Adopty day, it's in there too, on June 15th.

We sure did have a ball at the Flower Moon pawty, and what a great picnic on Sunshine Mountain! Great idea to tow the piggy smoker along! And we caught plenty of fish for fry up for Angels Elmie & Pouncer and their friends. Angel Jezebel whipped up some special tartar sauce, too. Won't Elmie be surprised? He deserves it, he's done a great campaign.

Now that everything is cooking, let's take a quick run past Mom Annmarie's to make sure she's okay. Okay? -- A. Smokey

Angel Smokey knows that can only be one kitty sneaking up behind him & saying "Guess Who?" and he turns around and sweeps her up in a big furry hug and kiss!

Yes, I know how it is when it's someone's "show" and I'm happy for Angel Elmie getting all this attention because he's been way too quiet for way too long. He deserves it!

Mom's not doing any projects right now, she should be taking down wallpaper in the downstairs hall, but she's not. When she's not waiting to hear from window guys she's been doing some rearranging in the back room, researching & applying for jobs (kind of half-heartedly, mol). And loving on the earthlings of course.

That was a lovely picnic we had in the woods, the food was great and the company (that would be YOU!) was even greater. I'm very ready for the Full Moon pawty and dancing with my special girl! There are clouds in the sky right now but I'm hoping to see the moon from Pinto Island. Let's go for a walk on the beach and watch the clouds clear and the sun set. -- Hugs & kisses, Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Aww, that's too bad you got aced out for my Vote 5000. But you're all over the other part of my Wall of Fame.

MOL, you almost left me A. Elmie's blog! That's the reverse of how 30-some kitties ALMOST got King Mike's romantic retirement private blog to Lady Dolly, remember that? Mikey had stopped partway through his farewell rounds to leave something special for his sweetie, then he went back on his rounds, merrily c/p'ing blogs .. with the message to Dolly still on his clipboard! While he was still trying to play things cool to the rest of the Kingdom, no less. He caught himself after just a couple and went back to fix things. Good times! When he told Lady Dolly that night about what he'd done, she giggled so hard! Why, I think I heard Angel Mom Janada telling that very story not too long ago to A.K. Pushkin's Grandpa.

Oh, I hope what you heard is right about it being a cooler summer than last year! Not too much cooler, but we'd rather have our 80 - 90 degree days a couple at a time, rather than a couple of WEEKS at a time like last year! Even we Angels almost get fried when it's like that!

Mom got her steps finished and in place, now she's trying to decide which little project to do next. Psst ... I think that what she's actually doing is putting off the big ones, like getting the number from the neighbours to phone the guy about replacing the window. Or getting serious about job-hunting. Or actually physically going & looking at houses in Chilliwack so she can maybe get excited about selling the house here. Or calling the stamp guy to look at the rest of Dad's collection. Baby steps are one thing, but I think if this goes on too much longer I am going to need to kick her in the behind, or sic Angel Mallow & her Harley on her. -- your Smokey

Could May POSSIBLY start off any better??
Elmie is running for COTM and I am in the COTD window. Where I never thought I would see myself again! Traffic on my page is light so far, that means that (whisper) my big vote 5,000 might still be there for you to get sometime this week. I am hoping!

It was so much fun to watch chiller movies together, yep Mom had "the Fly" on an old HS tape that she taped off the TV ... I just didn't like the part where he experimented on his kid's kitty. Poor Dandelo ... out there meowing in thin air. Why, that stinky old human almost got what he deserved, mol.

Yesterday I completely forgot to put the piggy smoker on my page, well I have had Mom remedy that oversight now. So let's fill it up with beef, chicken & fish and get this COTD pawty started!

The Mom will be out of our hair completely for a while, she's heading into Langley soon for the Langley Walk, which it is a purrfect day for. She's going to pick up canned food for the Earthlings too. Afterward. Not a great day to leave 50 cans of kitty food in a parked car! Hope she still has some energy left after the walk.

Maybe I should share some of the 888 layer maple bacon moonpie cake to give her enough Oomph to last the day.

On second thought, no. MINE, all MINE!

And I am all YOURS! -- smooches, Smokey

Aww, thank you sweet PawPaw!
I love the "30 Candles" song! We'd better be careful that 30 candles don't burn the cabin down, mol.

Well, we had a great time frogging with Angels Jinx, Shadow & Jesse this morning, it was sure fun to get all muddy & chase those slippery guys around!

Oh my goodness I LOVE the big piggy smoker!! I'll probably smoke more trout & salmon than pork in there, but he is so cute! Why, that even beats O.J.'s cow-themed still! We have GOT to set that up at the cabin today, I'll order "Smoking Meat for Dummies" from the library and we will be eating FINE!

It is so hard to believe that it was 30 years ago when I began my earth life in that little barn on the Canada/US border. I had a wonderful long life with lots of love and I never get tired of celebrating that. No tears involved there at all!

Oh look! Angel Sandy and her sibs have set up some really fun looking games on the grounds! And with that 300 layer smokey blue crab moonpie crème cake with blue cheese frosting and there’s enough for everyone to have a piece. I’m going to get some corn on the cob started and we'll join the barbecue!

Then we can cuddle & watch "The Fly". Mom loves that movie, she just watched it a few weeks ago with the Earthlings. She saw "Fargo" years ago but hasn't seen it since. I think we could use a little dose of the chills, mol. ~~ your big warm cuddlebug, Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Oh, definitely we will keep it light in June, even though there are some sads mixed in with the happy times. Sure are a lot of celebrations coming up!

Yep, Mom likes her hatchback too, mostly because you can fit a whole lot of stuff back there if you want to. Fold the seat down and you can even carry a bunch of 2 x 4's. Can't quite carry a King-sized mattress, though, darn it. She figures she could carry the box springs if she needed to, though. She's just hoping that Becky's ex or Big Bro Joe comes for the mattress soon, just so she can feel like she's getting something accomplished around here. It's frustrating when things depend on other people getting back to you! Mom is dragging her butt enough on some things, mol.

Oh, how exciting! Well of course Elmie will need to give his speech, he's already been nominated. The only way he won't need to is if CC decides to pack it in tomorrow and we won't even THINK about that, mol. This is going to be exciting and really add to all the celebrations in June.

And tomorrow is my 30th birthday, that is so hard to believe! Guess I should get Mom busy on a picture for me! Let's go for a walk while she's hard at work. -- your Smokey

Hi my sweet PawPaw!
Well of course the Flower Moon in May will be the PawPaw moon! Except for A. Mallow, for her it will be the Mallow Moon, mol. In more ways than one, probably.

Gee, it's on the 21st of May? That means that the Strawberry Moon in June might be .... (runs to check) ... well, the Great Google says it's at 4 a.m. June 20th, that's close enough to A. Mallow's crossing day on the 21st. Actually, it will be right between Mom's birthday on the 18th and A. Mallow's crossing day on the 21st. Then there'll be Dad's crossing day on the 25th :( The end of June is going to be kind of a bummer around here. BUT it's also my Adopty Day on June 15th ~ same day as Angel Pierre's crossing day.

Big Bro Will's car trunk has TWO busted hinges! It's not a hatchback, just a regular trunk. When he bought the car it had one busted hinge, the guy made sure Will knew about that, but since then the other one has gone. Actually it's not the hinge, it's the underside of the trunk where the hinge is bolted on that has actually ripped away. So right now the two hydraulic thingies are all that's attaching the trunk to the car, unless Big Bro Will hooks it to the back seat from the inside, which is what he does just for safety. And he keeps his spare tire in the back seat.

As you can tell, Big Bro Will also lives by the motto "Cheep cheep cheep", mol. He definitely has the money to fix it. He had way more money to spend on a car than he spent on this one, but he loves Celicas and he's cheap. And Celicas are good. He says he's often complimented on it by car guys, even just in the grocery store parking lot, mol. And not because the car is all prettied up, but because car guys KNOW Celicas are good!

Yep, Gin Gin was COTD. We never saw her in the window either, but her Mom got the e-mail so whatever broke, broke after the votes were counted. And (cautiously) it's working again now ... hope it continues.

Well, let's get ready to go along on your Mom's appointment. I see that Zippy & the Moj are navigating, they're pretty good but I also see that A. Mallow is coming along. She might need someone to bail her out before the day is over. -- kisses, Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
That sure was a great moon tune, and I loved crooning and spooning under the silvery moon. Well, the pink moon, though it didn't look very pink to me.

Oh gee, it looks like we are COTD-deprived again. Darn! And with my birthday coming up, too. Well, we can only hope that it will reappear, you never know what's going to happen here on CC.

Yep, a Celica is a Toyota. Mom used to have one and this is Big Bro Will's second one. It runs great but one of the trunk hinges is busted. One of these days he'll fix that, but he doesn't use the trunk that much so he's not in a hurry. I would say your Mom's Geo sounds great and she should just keep driving it and driving it! That's what Mom is going to do with Dad's Hyundai Accent.

Yesterday was a great day for Angel Jesse's baseball game! You looked very cute in your uniform. -- Smokey

Ahhhhh! It's COOL today!!
What a relief!

MOL, we didn't know there's such a thing as a rare tire either, we thought it was just about 14-inch, 16-inch & so on. But with Big Bro Will's tires all the rest of the numbers on the tire have to match too. And since his car is a Celica from the 90's, there are not that many used ones out there. Big Bro Will got the car really cheap, so the guy who was selling it wasn't going to put new tires on it. Anyway, Will is happy now.

Angel Jesse wrote to A. Mallow about the baseball team. She signed up for Outfield so she could make those spectacular leaps she loves so much. I think that would be great for us to get in on the action too!

Mom has a ceiling fan on her list of things to look for next time she's at the Re-Store. She would like to leave Becky's where it is and have ceiling fans in all the bedrooms. All she has to do is take down the fixture that's in her room already, unhook 3 wires from the old fixture and hook them back up in the new one, then put the new one up. Oh, and turn the power off first. Very important step, that one! She's not going to be at the Re-Store any time too soon, though.

Well, looks like it's Full Moon pawty day! And of course the clouds are up there so we can't see it, mol. Guess we'll just have to get up on top of the clouds and we'll have a great view as we sail along. -- kisses, Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
We were in much less of a roasting pan yesterday, the "feels like" only got up to 86 and that felt downright cool, mol. Today is supposed to be the same, a little mini-summer before the clouds & rain come back. Well, Mom's downspout will be ready for it and the bedside table will be finished.

I forgot to say that Big Bro Will got 4 new tires put on his car on Monday. Remember how he had the sort-of-blowout and Mom had to take a tire iron down to him? Well when he started looking around for a new tire so he could still have a spare, he learned that the tires on his car are fairly rare. Who knew there's such a thing as a rare tire? None of the used tire places or auto wreckers had one! So he ended up getting a good deal on 4 new ones & since the other 3 tires he had were pretty bald and one had mysteriously gone flat on him a couple of times, he figured he'd go for it. Good thing because when they got a good look at the one that had gone flat a couple of times, it had metal showing through and was pretty much ready to blow too. He says his car rides so much smoother now! Yahoo!

Oh, you have got to be kidding, it's supposed to be a roastier roasting pan than last year?? Well, Mr R2D2 (the portable a/c) is not out yet, but it will be when it looks like it's going to be needed for more than a couple of days. We have a tower fan that Mom found in the back of Big Sis Becky's closet last year, that can go wherever we need it. We have a ceiling fan in the kitchen and in Big Bro Joe's and Big Sis Becky's rooms, the last thing on the list for Mom's room is she wants one for in there, too. Next time she's at the Re-Store she will look there rather than steal the one from Joe's old room.

And for food this year, we do have an actual electric roasting pan (mol) that Big Bro Joe left behind, she can plug it in outside so she doesn't have to use the stove if she doesn't want to. She just has to look over the manual to see what it can do.

My little earth family will survive a roasting pan summer, but they don't have to look forward to it, mol.

Hey, do you know it's my birthday in 10 days? And I will be 30! And as if that's not great enough, COTD is back, wouldn't it be great if it's still back on my birthday? Paws crossed! -- your Smokey

Huff! Puff! Huff!
It gets worse and worse! We just checked the Weather Channel and it is 29 (84) with a Humidex of 39 (102)!! Mom is very glad she got her outside work done early in the day, she knew this was going to happen, but didn't know it would get quite THIS hot! Does this mean another summer in the roasting pan? NOOOOO!!!!!

We saw the half full moon last night, too. It was really bright, Mom & the Earthlings thought it was that annoying motion light the people across the road have but it was the big bright moon. It's getting ready for Gracie's Moon pawty, it wants to make sure to not miss it!

I think a walk by the lake will be nice & cool, and the ducks will be happy to get some bread crumbs. We'll spread a blankie and bring the big screen out on the deck of my cabin so we can watch Star Wars under the stars. I think Mom & the Earthlings will have the window open while they watch, to cool the room down. Soon enough it will be time to bring out the portable a/c again, little R2D2, mol. -- your Smokey

Now THAT is a PICNIC!!
You sure do know how to pack a picnic basket! Good thing we have the bicycle built for two so we can work off some of those calories. Not like WE have to worry about calories, but I'd rather fly than roll like a big furry gray beachball, mol.

Haven't heard from Mr. Harley Dude yet, but he will remember. Yep, the boneheads who built the house just slapped tiles on top of regular old wallboard around the bathtub. It was okay till some of the grout started chipping out, some water got in between the tiles and after that you KNOW what happens to wallboard when it gets wet! Unfortunately the New Home Warranty period was up by the time the wall caved in. The same dudes also messed up the pipes underneath the tub in the very beginning, Mom & Dad didn't know anything was wrong till water started pouring out of the carport light fixture which is underneath the bathroom. THAT happened while the warranty was still in force, so the builder came out & fixed that pretty quick. They had to replace the carport light fixture too, needless to say, it was toast.

Then there was the long shelf with attached clothes rod in Mom & Dad's closet that only had 3 supports holding it up. Well the weight of the clothes pulled that thing down in the first few months. So they came & put it back up using five supports, but eventually those started breaking too so Mom got really ingenious, she got 4 tall skinny shelf units from Ikea and set up kind of a DIY closet organizing system with them. Then she laid sheets of plywood across the top for a shelf, put some nice edging on it so it doesn't LOOK like plywood. THAT baby isn't going to be falling down anytime soon! The Mom meant business that time!!

So guess what? She checked the library website last night and the Star Wars movie is in. Unfortunately the library was closed by that time so she can't pick it up till tomorrow. She'll have a movie night with the Earthlings tomorrow for sure. Then, let's see if we can borrow it, we'll fry up some fish and have movie night under the stars at my cabin. -- your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Well, when Mom was talking to Mr. Harley dude about a year ago he said he's seen enough friends & family on dialysis that he decided it's not for him, he'd rather just let nature happen. But that's easy to say when your kidneys are still working, mostly. Now that his function is so low, he might be rethinking that and willing to give it a try, who knows? His brother just crossed the Bridge a few months ago, he had a whole lot wrong with him. And his son went just a few months before that. This whole family were a bunch of wild boys and did some hard living when they were younger.

They didn't go all sad when his brother & son went, though, they had a biker convoy and "last ride" for each of them. His brother's ended up at Aldergrove Lake Park where they had a gathering & told stories about him. And there were lots of stories, the guy had a very colourful life!

What's up with our biffy is the walls around the bathtub. First, the guys who built the house didn't waterproof before they put tiles around the tub. So eventually water got inside and the wall caved in, tiles & all. This was years & years ago! So since Dad didn't want to call someone & spend a lot of money, Mom ripped all the tiles out, dried everything up, replaced the wallboard with treated stuff and put waterproof panels up all round.

Except eventually water started getting in under the waterproof panels because when 300 lbs of Dad would get in the tub, it would break the seals between the panels & the tub and then water would get in underneath. Mom would re-caulk and re-caulk, she even tried the stuff they use on boats. Nothing seemed to work for long.

So then about 10 years ago she put another layer of waterproof stuff OVER that, and she put a row of tiles at the bottom where it meets the tub. And eventually water STILL got under it. So last time it happened she just lost it and went nuts with the caulking gun -- which was filled at the time with some unsightly gray outdoor sealer we had that's made for cement. It's been a patchwork mess ever since. Even Dad realized that it's time for someone other than Mom to take a look at it, which was on the list for this year. -- Smokey

Yep, my PawPaw petal!
Gt. Gt. grandpa used to make wooden shoes, that's what his German army record said anyway. It called him a "shoemaker" and his son's marriage record from 30 years later in England called him a "carpenter". The lady who was helping Mom research said that's not as far a stretch as it looks because the shoes they wore back then in Germany were made of wood. Mom had never thought of that, either, though she knew that they wore wooden shoes in France back then. They called them Sabots and in French class back in High School they learned a song about them.

MOL, Dad may not be around to gripe about a quilt being in the way, but can you imagine one of those things set up on a frame in Big Bro Joe's old room and one (or all) of the kitties NOT jumping up to use it as a big kitty hammock? That would be okay, though, Mom could live with that.

Oh, geesh, talk about doing harm to yourself over the years, Mom called the Harley dude today to see what he can suggest about those two "don't you dare DIY" projects that need done, he was telling her that his kidney numbers are down where Dad's were 4 years ago and Mr. Harley dude just went to an information session about dialysis. He is not too impressed with the notion.

Last time Mom saw Harley dude it was his liver giving him most of the problem, the guy just has things going on everywhere because of things he did when he was younger that were not such great ideas after all. Anyway, he says he'll come out in a couple of days and look at the living room window & the bathroom, see what he can suggest. He's the guy who recommended the humans who did our roof last year and they did a really good job & didn't charge a whole lot either. He knows all kinds of tradespeople in the area & can get good deals.

Mom would consider window boxes, except she'd have to take the screens in & out to tend to them and as of two years ago those screens are in very very tight so that the Earthlings can't knock them out. When she secured them in there she told Dad and Big Bro Will that those screens will only come out if the house is on fire & everyone has to jump, mol. So I'm thinking window boxes aren't going to be happening any time soon.

Oh great, let's sell tulip bulbs! We need some for those big red ones, and those light purple ones are nice too. -- Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Yep, Mom can do whatever she wants. And you know what she got thinking about last night? That Dad was a master of doing what he thought would make him happy, even if other people didn't want him to do it. Even if other people yelled & screamed and threatened, he would end up doing what he thought made him happy.

That's something Mom could certainly learn from, with all her years of not being allowed to "mess up" her own closet and drawers, pick out her own clothes, and having to always watch out for Angel Grandma's feelings. Not like you should go around hurting peoples' feelings, but if Mom is watching out for Angel Grandma's feelings, and Angel Granddad is watching out for Angel Grandma's feelings ... who watches out for Mom's feelings when she's a little teeny girl? Much as she wanted to wallop Dad over the head sometimes, he had that part 100% right. Your feelings are your own business to deal with. Wow, are we getting Zen here or what, mol?

The flower show was pretty good, besides flowers there were all kinds of booths and things, people who make stuff and people who do stuff, Mom is thinking she will go over to the meeting of the Abbotsford Quilters Guild tomorrow morning and see what's up with them. She used to like quilting, used to do it back in the house before this one that had a really huge living room.

Except Dad would get after her for having the quilt set up for too long and not working on it "enough" to get it out of his way in a timely fashion, mol. She should've told him that was HIS problem to deal with, right? Except ... then Dad would have probably said "I'll finish it myself then", run amuck with great big stitches & told her not to be so darn fussy, it's done isn't it?

Right now there's not even any place to PUT tulip bulbs, the front "garden" needs a couple of scraggly bushes to come right out of it, and some turning over, new dirt and shaping. Except Mom didn't even think about that last year because the window guys were going to be coming with ladders right in that spot. Except that never happened because the window guy crossed the Bridge. So now the foggy living room window is still on the "gotta do something about that" list. It's a long list, mol. And replacing the window is not a DIY project. No way would she even try that one! Not even with Big Bro Will to help. Sometimes one of the greatest DIY skills is knowing when NOT to DIY, know what I mean?

Let's put that windmill in the garden at my Rainbow Bridge cabin, and some tulip bulbs too. It's always time to plant bulbs at the Bridge! And we can put our clogs on .... did you know that one of Mom's great-great grandfathers used to make those wooden shoes, back in Germany and Helgoland in the 1850's? Cool, huh? -- your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
What a great day!!

You know what this weekend is? It's the Bradner Flower Show, just up the road from my earth home. Let's put on our floral prints and go check it out!

Would you believe in over 30 years in this house Mom has never been? A couple of years ago Mikey took Dolly, they stayed at a cute B & B (which really exists not too far away from us) that had its own swan pond and then they took in the flower show. But Mom did not actually ever go. Dad would have wanted to come along, even though he wasn't the slightest bit interested in flowers. He would have wanted dropped off at the door & by the time Mom parked the car & got inside he'd have said he'd seen everything already & wanted to go home because there's no comfortable place to sit down. And then he would have wanted to stop for Chinese food on the way home.

So this year Mom is going to actually go, she would have gone today except she had the vampire clinic. Tomorrow she will go. And in the fall she will go to the Fort Langley Cranberry Festival, and some other goofy local things that Mikey has taken Dolly to but Mom never went to ... she might have gotten asked to drop SOMEone off at the casino "on the way". Like I said, CC has been a lifeline through some of these last few years and that's the truth!

So let's not think about our not-so-fun last days on earth, and let's not think about Dad, let's go see some pretty flowers. Some of the yards here have great big huge red tulips in them and if Mom gets our front yard sorted out this summer she will be wanting to put in some of those bulbs in the fall. Unless they're mucho expensive that is.

Oh, I am definitely watching your girlish figure, mol. And wrapping my furry arms around it, if I may be so bold. -- your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Well the blessing for New Angel Bennie is that he wasn't really ailing, not too much anyway. He was slowing down, taking a while longer to eat, all the things that we do when we get older. Mom Jenny was worried about him just before Easter, he was throwing up a bit, but the vet gave him fluids & he perked back up. Then a few days ago he slowed down again, didn't even want to walk or anything & this time when Mom Jenny took him to the vet he could feel a tumor in his liver that he hadn't been able to feel just a couple of weeks earlier. And they all knew it was time. Mom Jenny is going to miss him big time, that's for sure.

Yeah, I fell off the couch a time or two during my last couple of weeks, Mom or one of the Big Bros would lift me back onto it. Mom tried to set me up a bed in our plastic laundry basket but I wasn't having any of that, I wanted to be on my couch and I'd make my way back to it no matter what, even when I could barely walk. I was stubborn, mol.

Oh, I DO look dapper with the one of your crossing day carnations in my lapel, don't I? Yep, those days were not our finest, but they were days when we felt very loved. And that's something very special to remember and honour on our crossing anniversaries and always.

Now about that pub & grub, I sure hope they have steak & kidney pie and some really dark stout! -- your Smokey

Hey Angel Paw Paw!
You are very welcome. Mom understands. Everyone of her cats who are now angels she had to help over the rainbow Bridge. So they were declining & she couldn't let them suffer. we try to celebrate their lives too but still they are very much missed! Boy did we get a nasty storm today! It was coming down in buckets! And raining sideways & every which way! Scary! Mom was so glad she was not on the road driving when it happened! She was at the S/N clinic & they lost power three times! But they got through the surgeries & after care. Couple things were knocked over in the yard when Mom got home. Glad it wasn't worse. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Dean

Hi Angel PawPaw!
You are very welcome for the visit on your crossaversary! We can't believe it's been 6 years, either! Of course, up here, there is no concept of time. You were here when each of us came. First Angel Moki in Sept of 2009, then Angel Frosty in Sept 2010. then me in July 2011 and lastly, AQ Duchess just last year. You were among the first to meet us and we all appreciate your loving welcome. We were sad to see that sweet Bennie became an angel the other day, but he's safe, healthy and whole here with all of us, now. We have gone down to sprinkle his family with feel better angel dust. It will take awhile, but they will heal.

Thanks for all the wonderful Mexican food! Mom will be so jealous, cuz she loves Mexican food. She said she would have made a good Mexican...MOL! And we really had a fantastic time. Celebrating life is where it's at, not death.

Well, sweet angel, we're leaving you a vote and wishes for a wonderful evening and pleasant dreams. We hope your Mom's shoulders get to feeling better, soon. One is bad enough but both is a real pain! Pardon the pun! Anyway, take care and we'll catch ya, later. Oh, please tell AQ Gracie that we appreciate her update on Mom Mandy. Can't believe she ended up in the hospital, again. She had said she was feeling better, but she must have taken a turn for the worst. We'll go down and sprinkle her with get well angel dust. Want to come along?

Love ya!
Angels Big Red, AQ Duchess, Frosty and Moki

You're welcome, Angel Paw Paw.
We also have many Angels in our family who were there to greet Angel Bennie. That is one thing we all take comfort in. We also enjoyed the good food and games! However, as much as we enjoyed celebrating your life, please don't think that we like crossaversaries. Hugs, KC and the Zoo Crew

Twelve considerably silenced Harley's can be seen as they travel to Kelso, WA tonight to pay homage to A.PawPaw on her 6th crossing anniversary.
The Riders pull into her Hoomin's driveway and begin removing their helmets to reveal the faces of Q. Zoe Monique Puffalump, Kali, CoCo, Q. Angel Mallow, K. Winston, A. Beast, Possum, Q. Talley, Q. Lola, Mojo Blackbear, Cyndee and Maggie Meme. They dismount and head to meowmy's door, as Q. Zoe Monique steps forward to knock on her door. A sad meowmy soon comes to the door. The group surrounds her in a big group hug. They tell her they know that she is missing her girl, PawPaw, but hope she knows that she is never far away and is always watching over her.
Maggie hands her a beautiful Forget Me Not Plant, a scrapbook for PawPaw's pictures and memories and an engraved plaque with PawPaw's name on it. She asks everyone to walk outside and hands everyone a red balloon to release to the Rainbow Bridge. Angels Ringo Starr and Yum Yum take a special basket to the Bridge filled with some special things for PawPaw.
Maggie yells let's roll gang we've got some more stops to make, We hope we made your day a little brighter. The Riders speed off as Angels Yum Yum and Ringo Starr fly over sprinkling their special blend of Angel Dust to keep the Riders safe wherever the road may lead. God bless. Love, hugs and purrrrrrs.

Come visit me, Maggie Meme #271793.
