shadowboxer and the new catinet
johnny cash might have walked the line, but i have seriously crossed the line and dived into the pond of WT. does five cats seem a little white trash? i hope not, but if so, whatev.
my sister tipper and my nephews drove into town on friday with a new cat for us from our friends, deb & portia. he is actually blossom's brother and stepbrother to lucy mae's brother. we keep it all in the family, countrystyle.
we had our openstudiosale and let the kids dabble in gratuitous violence on the playstation... and what good is an aunt if she can't load her nephews up with sugar and forbidden junkfood? they left this morning and i had loaded both sets of pockets with candy and said 'be very quiet with it. your momma has sugarwrapper ears.' and of course, they so got busted when they got in the car. 'i hear candy,' she said. who in the hell hears candy? my sister, that's who.
well, this is shadowboxer's formal introduction.
the first night, blossom was doing the siamese chittygrowl that says 'oh, it ain't no. itz hell no' in siamese and if cats could do the 'chickenhead', she would have been doing that, too. today is a new day and they are playing in and on their new old catinet. i need to go get pipe cut for the broken handle, but i think this will work just fine.
oh, and thank you to all of you who suggested favorite books to read. i have put them all in a word doc and now have a list to start with. thank you, you sugarlumps you.
