Hooray, its Easter today!
We had a glimpse of one of the Easter Rabbit' cohorts or a spy or a scout...but at any rate, even petcretary saw him! Whoot!
She was in the yard with us, and suddenly Dalton ran right into the wood pile...and then he darted out as fast and furious as a bullet...and there was a faster critter ahead of him...then Benji joined in the chase as well...but *she* could not keep up at all. No screeches a la bunny were heard, so *she* assumes he got away to tell his findings to the big basket carrying rabbit...aka the Easter Bunny. Maybe he related this message after his risky sortie into our yard: 'Yes, there are two evil canines at this place...and they hate us and our kind.'..(LOL!). 'Don't bring them any treats'...
(The wood pile is where all the branches and limbs go and other yard waste, to lay there in a big heap until a good day comes by to burn it down to the pile of ashes...usually in the fall...as birds and other creatures like to lurk or nest in there...presumably under the guise of safety, but with those two hooligans, nothing is sacred nor safe!) (It would have been a great video if *she* had a smart phone in her pocket...when she goes out to do doggy poop patrol and other yard chores her camera and iPad are NOT in her pocket...and she does NOT have a smart phone anyways...)
So that was our excitement this week...and yet another deaded mole and *she* rescued a big long garter snake from our teeth...and now that the ground is soft again, we are having fun digging holes...and digging out the mole runs, and digging out the many walnuts the squirrels buried last fall...lets just say that we are helping to keep the red pepper flake makers in business...we leave the stuff alone when *she* puts it on our digging endeavors, but well, we just go and find more places to dig! BOL! Yes, when you have a whole acre to roam in...well, you get the idea!
Petcretary had a bad kind of excitement in her wallet...she's been having issues with the tire pressure light, it seems she has a trouble magnet on her tires, they are always getting punctures, big and small...and she's had some bad tire pressure sensors as well...so she drove up to the service place she goes to and the receptionist said right away, oh you need more air in your tires?? LOL!
Well another dude came up and he had some time so he put the van up on the hoist and inspected the tires, all of them, thank you very much...he said there were tow punctures in the same tire, about an inch apart...so that makes it unsafe to plug them like they have been able to do for some of her other holes...short story long...she needs a new tire...no, lets correct that: she needs three new tires:(
The three in question are worn down enough that it make more sense to replace all of them now...ah well, petcretary is made of money, right?? Or she has a money tree in the garden!...yup she wishes. Sheesh, tires cost an arm and a leg these days.)
And likely soon after she gets them the tire light will come on again...just to tease her!
Well, now to the day's real doings.
It is Easter! One of the highlights on the Christian calendar! The bunnies and stuff like that are just for fun, so we do have fun with it all, too...but Petcretary and Pawppy are very happy there IS Easter, it means so much for them.
Our unfurbros will be coming for dinner after they all go to church...nothing too fancy, just good home made yums...and maybe an extra chew bone for us:)
Here are our new Easter Selfies as promised last week.
Past Tuesday, petcretary was one of two 'firsties' that got in the door to say hello to Teddy and his Mom...aka the graphics dept...she had the right answer, too, but she was a little late in getting back there to tell them...
But it was still fun and special, the Graphics dept made special Badges with an Easter theme! So she got this one for being a first commenter:
Then she got this badge for knowing the right answer, but not being the first one:
Could you spare some purrs, and pawyers for our good furend, Timmy?? He spent some time at the vet and he still isn't eating too well, according to his Dad Pete. Petcretary has known that furmily since her Catster days, way back in 2009, that's a LONG time!
Here is a recent picture of dear Timmy:
|Please send purrs and POTP to Timmy|
We also learned of another sad passing:
We made a card in his honor:
