It's been great here lately at The Lounge, with the Mommy all lame and stuff. First off, she can't make any quick, sudden (read: grabby hand) moves to try and Touch me; and secondly, I can hear her dragging her bad leg a mile away--like Igor--which gives me tons and tons of time to run away strategically juxtaposition myself.
Ergo, I've been sleeping out in the open a lot.
I particularly enjoy sleeping on Mommy's* bed.
It's even better if my humpalumpa brother John joins me for a nice long snooze.
I'm a big snuggler. Of Felines.
Skootching up with Johnny is like cuddling a furry sack of rumbling hot lava.
He's big enough to hide behind, too, especially when that dratted Mommy does manage to sneak up on me. What more could I ask for?

* I love how Mommy smells. She can feel free to smell up the house any time, just no Touching.
First off, Happy Father's Day to all the Dads and Pet Daddies out there!
Keep up the good work.
Here's a couple of handsome men for y'all:
My Dad, wearing his snazzy new "Universe" tie die shirt from this guy:
Who is a pretty damn good human/cat Dad himself.
I love you guys!
KNEE NEWS: The knee is healing. I went online and researched how bone heals and it's fascinating! It follows a specific pattern, and can take up to five years to fully remodel a fracture. Mother Nature is truly amazing. Anyway, right now it's achy and tingly--right on schedule--I'm at nearly three weeks and the cellular latticework for the bone cells that lay down mineral bone is almost complete. I have X-rays Monday to assess how it's coming along, and my Doc said if he's satisfied with my progress I can start physio in another week.
I went back to work (light duty) on Friday. For liability reasons there was another employee working with me so all I had to do was sit and click a mouse. I am going crazypants not being able to simply move! Not to mention the mountain of workman's comp paperwork I've had to fill out--I'm never having an accident again--says Trinka the Klutz.
HOME NEWS: I think the other (final?) shoe has dropped in the home repair department, Thursday afternoon the electric garage door open caught on fire! Scott was inside the garage when it happened (thank heaven) and he unplugged it right away. *whew*
We discussed that there's nothing left to go wonky so we should be good to go...
PARK NEWS: Well, if I wasn't a total cripple I'd have tons of photos to show you, maybe even a video! Instead, you'll have to make do with me saying that it's the nicest park I've ever seen out here, bar none. I'd estimate work is about 85% done, but then again I thought that six months ago. And last week they carved out a bunch of new pathways for walking so who knows what might be next.
Now, I have to go whale on the sofa, doctor's orders.
