Blest Sunday: Memorial Day 2021

Hey dearest furiends, it’s soooooooo good to see ya’ll. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s wan’t so sure we’d actually be here today. Why you ask? Well, as most of ya’ know, Thursday was mommy’s birthday. It’s not like she had big plans or anything; but, she does like to spend it just enjoying us and watching movies on the tube. Well, things were going purretty well fur the most pawrt. We were under a tornado watch, it was storming outside a bit and hurricane Zebby was raging inside, but it wasn’t really a big deal. Till that is about 8:30 that evening. Mommy was just about to fix her something fur dinner. It was a balmy 90° when suddenly the power went out. A bolt of lightning sparked past that penetrated our blackout curtains and what followed was pure horror.

I’s fixing to tell Zebby. Quit interrupting me. (Raena shakes her head) The power flashed back on a minute later and then the loudest pop we’ve ever heard resulted in it going pitch black everywhere. Sure nuff, mommy tried to look outside, but there wasn’t any lights anywhere. She called the electric company and got a machine. Of course it was after hours, so she expected that, but what happened next, she didn’t expect. They said power would be back on some time the next day. What?!! Don’t they know it’s hot and humid right now? And, what about her dinner? I’s don’t think they cared on either account, but still…. By 2 a.m. mommy was naked as a newborn and sweating like a cat on a hot tin roof. Happy birthday mommy A. MOL

Yes Zebby it is. And, it couldn’t have happened at a worse time. Mommy couldn’t see a thing and was terrified you’d take a flying leap off the top in the dark. Thanky thankfully that didn’t happen. The power’s back now, but has been spotty fur the last couple of days. We think they patched it till they could do a real fix. We’re just glad to have a/c again. Anyways, tomorrow is Memorial day and we fur sure wanna recognize all those soldiers who died to keep so many safe and free. I’s think ifin those soldiers could see what’s going on right now, they’d not even recognize our great country. However, we are so grateful fur their service. We recognize the sacrifice they made. There isn’t another country on this planet as great as the U.S.A.. I’s with mommy and don’t understand what’s so happy about it, so, we wish everyone a Blest Memorial day.

Zebby raises paw to Raena who looks on in disbelief

          I’s thankful to be safe and free too Raena. We’re so Blest. Is it time fur Sunday Selfies with the Kitties Blue?

  • A very Happy Belated Birthday to Mom A. We sure are happy we are all free and for all that so many gave for us. Zebby you are one cute little kitty but be careful climbing up high. I know you will watch over him Raena you are such a good cat. Pretty too!


  • A Blessed and peaceful uneventful Memorial Day is wished for you and us as we remember those who gave all for US.

    Wow, what a time for the power to fail. And on your birthday even. Of course with no AC a fan might help, but you didn’t even have power for that, sigh…hope it stays on for good, now.
    Praying that you can enjoy some nice calm weather for a change!

    Hug to all:)

    And a belated Happy Birthday to you, Miss A!


  • What an awful thing to lose power on Mommy A’s birthday. But we are glad it is working again; we hope they get it fixed right real soon. Blessed Memorial Day to you, too, sweet pals.


  • Power outages are awful. The biggest problem they have is that they can’t send the linemen out to fix things until it’s safe, so the storms have to be over, or at least the worst has to be over. Then they have to assess the damage, which always seems to take too long but they don’t want to miss anything and cause a worse problem.

    That it had to happen on your birthday is the pits, too!

    A blessed Memorial Day to you, and i pray for no more storms.


  • I am sorry the power went out on your mommy’s birthday. How odd that they don’t have a 24 hour hotline to report outages. My state has an automated system, but you can talk to someone if you press the right numbers. I hope the storms give you a break. XO


  • Oh my, such an awful time on your Mom’s Birthday. No power is no fun at all but I’m glad you got it back and the AC is working again. You sweet kitties have fun. Love ya!


Please take a minute to let us know what you think., We love to hear from you.
