Chairman of the Board

I demand a bailout.   And would someone Puhleese iron this tablecloth?

If I sit too close to the space heater it automatically shuts off. How immensely frustrating.

It was just me and him this weekend. As you can see, I'm reminding him about his obligations to Pumpy and me. We need cereal milk, our fudz, and a little scratching while we fall asleep. He did a good job of taking care of us but sometimes he tries to pick me up! Can you imagine? I don't allow it. Only the lady bean can pick me up and only when she's sitting in a chair.

I hope you're having a nice Sunday.
love, Pearl

What's in a name?

In case any of you missed the NY Times article on the very interesting sampling of place names here in England, I'm posting these visuals for your enjoyment. But who are we to laugh? We once drove through Big Bone Lick Kentucky and there's always Intercourse PA!

(P.S. we don't live on Butt Hole Road.)

These two trays were perched precariously on the edge of the counter and when I merely tried to sniff them they fell off onto the hard floor. Well... the clanging noise was so loud that it scared me to death. I had to hide behind the sofa for a bit and it took a good 10 minutes for the furs on my tail to calm down.

And that is all I have to say today.

Love, Pearl

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Remember that the most important person to remember is your own self. Our lady been gave herself some lovely chocolates last night. She gave Pumpkin and me some leftover rice. Hmmmm. That doesn't seem right. Pumpy ate his but I didn't care for mine. Too bland. Even the dog didn't want it!

Well this is quite unbelievable but the sun came out this afternoon and there was a hint of warmth in the air. Our lady bean was galvanized into action. Shrubs were pruned and the garden was tidied up a bit. Spring must be just around the corner, no?

Monday Morning Meditation


I'm praying for sunbeams and warmth while the dog stands guard.

Ariel's having a Valentine's Day Contest!  Make sure you submit your Valentine soon.

I'm going back to bed now.  

love, Pearl.

Man... Sometimes Pumpy really ticks me off.

Lookee here.

I'm sitting in the window, watching the snowflakes. I have the good sense to stay indoors which is more than I can say for the beans and the dog.

Dag, it's cold here. We're scheduled to get SNOW this evening which might accumulate.

Pumpy and I had a real bust-up over the duvet last night. I'm sorry to say that he won and then he hogged the warm spot.

The woman did housework today and this has soured her mood considerably.

That is all.
