We got some awards last week from some new friends...we are so thankful for all our blogger pals.
First up, we received the Beautiful Blogger award from Rainbow at Purrs, Meows, etc.! Rainbow is an all white kitty whose name reflects the fact that white reflects all the colors of the rainbow! We think that is so cool.
Thank you Rainbow!
We think you are an exceptionally gorgeous kitty, and welcome to the Cat Blogosphere!
Then, we got the Thinking of You award from Texas, a Cat in New York!
Texas, we just bet you'll be thinking of us when you get that nip we mailed you, heh heh...that is when the pink spotted mousies finally go away!
Thank you for the award.
We are total rule-breakers when it comes to awards, so if you would like to grab it for yourselves, feel free! In our opinion ya'll are Beautiful and we DO think about you, even if our Mommy is a
lazy wench has to work and we can't comment as much as we want to. Stupid lack of thumbs.
In other news, we had RECORD BREAKING rain here today!
You may have read Mommy's whining post on Sunday, that it's been terribly hot and humid here. Kitties, she was not exaggerating, not one tiny bit. Scouty thought maybe he was being stewed sans the pot, it's been so sticky. It couldn't last forever, and today the clouds decided to let loose--we had 1.22" of rain in our back yard! Mommy had to go for a hair cut at noon and where her hairdresser is had some of the heaviest accumulation; over 2.50" in under an hour. It's the heaviest rain she's seen in eleven years, she said it was almost too scary to drive. On the way home the intensity let up and there were soccer-ball sized rocks in the road that had been carried by the water out of the desert.
Here's some photos of the rain by our house:
The guys pouring concrete in the neo-park were caught off guard by the downpour (they must not watch the weather-guessers), they had to run around in the muck building berms to shunt the water into the street.
The rain water in the gutter rose to halfway up the apron of the driveway.
A quick shot (Mommy must be a witch--she was afraid the water would melt her) looking up the street.
This is a major intersection by our house, after the flooding. Mommy snapped this while she was driving...or so she claims. We think she's just skewed.
So that's the news for today...tomorrow, Mommy EATS CROW!
Don't miss it...
