Preparing for the Weekend

This coming weekend is a long holiday weekend, so we are all preparing for the weekend. Of course, for some of us, preparation is fairly easy.

Busy humans

Mid-week. The humans are busy.


I have Frankie and Cheoah wearing out Typhoon, Kiska on perimeter patrol, and Qannik, uh, in charge of following Kiska.

    Now that is MY kind of preparing. well, not totally accurate. I would be following the folks around, from room to room “Where we going, Where we going, Where we going? huh? huh? huh?”

    And such an excellent job. A lot of couches just fly all over the room.

    Holding down the couch is an important job – you can’t have those suckers flying around the room… ;-). Abby does similar work in holding down the floor.
