I don't have a real post* for you today, camel, horse, or otherwise. But I have a really good excuse.
I have been overwhelmed with my responsibilities as Controller of the Red Dot.
What the hell (you may be asking yourself, if you tend toward profanity; otherwise, possibly just "What") is "Controller of the Red Dot"?
Well, you see, TG and I are currently cat-sitting for Vera and Valentine, who belong to our daughter and son-in-law, while said kiddos move. (Farther away from us ... *bites knuckles and stifles sob*) Moving=Upheaval. Cats and upheaval don't tend to mix well. We all thought it would be better for everyone if the kitties didn't get upset by all that packing. Or, you know, get tossed into a cardboard box by the low-bid movers contracted by the Navy.
Soooo, V & V are here with us until the kids find renters for their current house and then find a suitable new abode down Florida way.
It hasn't take our furry friends long to take over our household. Their very favorite thing, next to mealtime, is the laser pointer. So I've been doing a lot of this:
No, that's not Vera or Val, and for God's sake, those are not my legs. I've been too busy wielding the red dot to take any video, so that was for illustration purposes only. You know, in case you're the one person on the planet who hasn't played laser tag with a pet.
This is a pic of V & V:
They are being deceptively sweet here. They will terrorize the household if I don't spend an adequate amount of time controlling the dot that gives them so much running/stalking/hunting/bouncing-off-the-walls (literally) pleasure.
*hears crash from other room* Um, excuse me. Gotta go...
*Huh. Looks like I do after all.
What's keeping you busy these days?
