I was extremely concerned when I saw this neighbor cat sit on MY FENCE in our back garden. I stayed out there for a very long time and saw him off. This fence walking will not go down with me, I can assure you.

In other news... last night I ate the dog food, Pumpy ate my food and the dog ate Pumpy's food. It was total chaos but it makes for a change.

A Stern Reprimand

Pumpy got on the kitchen counter again (and got caught). He was given a very severe talking to:

*** All is forgiven***

We had a very nice birthday celebration for the man-- and thank you for all of your good wishes. We so enjoyed the festivities... we ate some of the greenery off of the fresh flowers that were on the table... we licked a pan... we got some strokes from our guests.

H.B., Fudz Dudz

He is 52 years old today. Tonight we're having a birthday dinner for him and we're making him his favorite fudz. Happy Birthday, Man.

Pumpy and I have been outside today because the sun is shinning. We sat on the patio for a long time and then Pumpy ate some weeds and that never ends well for him when he does that.

I've got to go finish my nap now.
love, Pearl

Nigella Lawson

We watched Nigella Lawson's cooking show on the TeeVee the other night. She makes wonderful fudz with CHICKEN and SHRIMPS. After awhile, Pumpy and I got bored and so Pumpy started to clean himself. It always annoys me when Pumpy cleans himself and so I had to turn my head and wait for him to finish.

Nigella Lawson is a domestic goddess. Apparently she knows how to throw together a dinner party in less than one hour and this includes cooking the meal and setting the table. We are not so skilled in this house.

This is what happens when we're left alone for an hour in the evening:

They went shopping. We were alone. It was terrible. A lot of cuddles are in order!

We are very disappointed in the TEE VEE line up this evening. We may be forced to read a book or something.

Last night the dog had a trans-Atlantic Skype chat with another dog and much hilarity ensued. Oh it gets so tiresome around here.

Clotted Cream

These are scones with CLOTTED CREAM

For my British friends... you know what I'm talking about! And for my friends across the pond, I can only say that I pity you because to my knowledge you cannot buy clotted cream in the grocery store. But if you can get your paws on some, I highly recommend it.

And here's a picture of me napping in the sunshine:

Remember me, my friends, because tomorrow we're scheduled to get heavy rain with gale force winds and I won't be basking in the sun anymore.

Nap-In for Obama

Everybody's getting into the spirit of my "Naps for Obama" campaign. This could really be a successful initiative! How exciting.

In other napping news: Two bedroom doors were inadvertently left open when the humans went to work this morning and so Pumpy took the master bedroom and I took the guest room. The dog had to stay downstairs on the sofa. That's the way the woman found us when she came home from work today.

Finally... our paws are crossed for everyone down in NOLA.
