Keep every promise you make and only make promises you can keep. (Anthony Hitt)

Awnty Ellen fwum 15 and meowin’ tagged us fur da Quote Challenge da udder day. Da rules awe to name and link back to yous challenger. Post at least 3 of yous favowite quotes, and pass da challenge along. So here we go.

Our openin’ quote is one dat be very close to mommy’s heart, as all of our quotes will be. Mommy sez a purromise has a much stwonger connotation than words like, okay, I will, sure, no purroblem. A purromise is yous word and bond. Afur mommy’s accident when she was healffy and always reliable, she made lots of purromises. And she kept every one. Today mommy makes far less purromises, but she still keeps each and every one. Ifin mommy sez she purromises you sumfin’, then yous can count on her to do it. We fink it’s weally purrtant dat yous mouff not be writin’ checks yous body can’t cash. Dat by da way is not on our quote list, but it is a quote made famous by Bo Diddly. And one dat mommy uses when she dusn’t make purromises. She sez hers mind is still sharp as a tack but hers body keeps her fwum duin’ a lot of fings these days.

Our next quote is weally relevant today when so many awe twyin’ to erase periods and events of history. Sed by George Santayana, “Those who cannot remember the past, are condemmed to repeat it.” Good, bad or ugly da past exists and we can’t change it. But we shuld learn fwum it. Yous own past has made you da purrson you awe today. Events have led you to where you awe today. Even tho’ we be poor and mommys body be a mess, she sez she wuldn’t change a fing. Everyday of her life has been a learning adventure dat has led her to da here and now. She sez she be gwatefull dat it’s hers short term memory dat be da purroblem cuz she has da memories of da lessons of her past to guide her.

Our third and final quote was a toss up. We saved da bestest fur last. So many peeps hav quoted this one in a variety of different ways dat no two sites cwedit da same purrson over and over. So weez’ll just say dat mommy’s gwandpa (may he rest in peace) taught her to “Live each day to da fullest, cuz you were never promised a tomorrow.” We fink it’s purretty self explanatory. And Jesus said in Matthew 24:36, “But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the Angels of Heaven, but My Father only.” We kuld go on and on and on, but you kinda get a sense of who we awe in da qotes weez chose to use. Fanks fur da challenge awnty Ellen.

Anyways, Sammy P’s flat got here Monday afternoon. Hims had been twavelin’ a long time and was purretty tired so hims chilled on da twee a bit. He is such a gentlemancat. Hims came in a tie and bwought da pawsumest made wiff luv toys fur sis Lexi and me. Hims didn’t wanna seem to take hims tie off so da furst night hims even slept in it. Da next day mommy took us all fur a stwoll after weez finished bwekky. He weally liked da stwoller. Hiims didn’t wanna get out when we got back in and so mommy sed hims kuld lay wound in it. It has a plush seat so no purrawllem. When hims finally got out, hims jumped up in da wheelchair.

So sis Lexi sat hims down and told hims all ‘bout how embawwasses she had been goin’ to BlogPaws wiff hers neck neckid. But nopawdy pointed or stared, stead she was met wiff an outpurrin’ of luv and support. And dat it was da same fur him. Wasn’t nuffin’ hims kulda helped and nopawdy was gunna make fun of hims cuz of it. So hims took off hims tie and loossened up and had a gweat time.

Sammy P: And I so precieated it too, Dezi and Lexi and aunty Audra. And You girls are such sweeties. Dezi really does give up the scratcher lounger when Lexi wants it. I even got to lay on it a while till Lexi came out and Dezi told me I could lay anywhere else, but that if her sissy wanted da lounger I should give it to her. They have so many pawsum places to lay I didn’t mind giving it to Lexi. They have lots of great toys to play with and their mommy grows them grass all the time.

Funday Monday!!!

Meowllo evewypawdy, awe yous all enjoyin’ da long weekend?  Yous know, hoomans nevew cease to amaze me.  Here it is Labor Day, a day celebwatin’ da Amewican labor movement, and yet most evewypawdy’s got da day off.  In udder words, they’re not workin’/laborin’.  What’s up wiff dat?   Oh well, Happy Labor Day to yous all and enjoy yous day off.  Course now dat weez liv in a 24/7 society not evewypawdy got da day off.  Maybe they be da ones weez oughtta be celebwatin’.  MOL  Well meez not gunna write a long winded posty today, but me did wanna shawr sum pawsum fings wiff yous.  And no dat dusn’t mean weez got good news, or any news fur dat matter ‘bout da floors in ow pawtment.  Not suwe ifin weez kuld pull mommy off da ceilin’ ifin weez had good news ‘bout dat.  Yous know hers wuld be way past ‘cited.  

Well da udder day, ow furiends ovew at 15 and meowing had a contest fur a subscwiption to Countwy Livin’ magazine.  And meez won it fur mommy.  Dat wulda been pawsum nuff in itself, but Miss Ellen went one better and sent Lexi and me a kupple toys too.  Hers sent us a handmade, cwocheted wiff luv catnip apple, and a catnip mousy.  Fank yous so much Miss Ellen dat be so fawtfull of yous and weez weally do purreciate it.  As weez told yous, mommy unpacked sum stuff so there wuz enuff room fur hers to make a video of me playin’ wiff da mousy. Hers got fotos too dat weez will shawe wiff yous.

Weez also been gettin’ sum boxes of goodys fur mommy fwum sum of ow furiends.  And of course lots of them included fun fur us too.  Weez got noms and toys and tweats.  Weez suwe do purreciate all of yous fur dat.  Weez luv ow mommy so vewy much and hers takes pawsum cawe of us and sees to it dat weez got evewyfin’ we need even ifin dat means hers goes wiff out.  And hers nevew complains.  Dat be what a mommy is and duz.  As yous know, mommy nevew had 2 legged childwen, so weez be hers only childwen.  

And member when me told yous weez wuld be writin’ wegulaw fur The Daily Mews?  Well ow first awticle as wegulaws is out.  Don’t fur get to go and check it out and subscwibe so yous not miss an issue.  It’s completely fwee and there’s a little sumfin’ fur evewypawdy.  There’s even an occasional contest or two.  So purrlease giv it a look see.  Paw da foto to go to da home page of The Daily Mews, and paw da word “awticle” above to be twansported to ow posty there. 


One mowe little fing.  Weez been gettin’ lots of questions ‘bout how Lexi and me be duin’ in da middle of all da chaos.  First let me say Fank yous fur yous concern.  Weez purrawly handlin’ it much better than mommy.  You see, bein’ Service cats weez kinda used to a little chaos.  And mommy also we-awwanges da house (da fings hers can safely move) evew so offen so weez get used to change.  And of course we go out wiff mommy and get exposed to all kinds of fings and smells and peeps. 

We awe a little stir cwazy cuz ow house wuz packed up so tight weez didn’t hav room to get wound, but havin’ boxes evewywhere dusn’t fweak us out.  And all of ow toys wuz packed away cuz mommy fawt it wuz just posed to be fur dat one day.  But mommy has unpacked a lot of stuff, taken out most of ow toys and given us a foo to play wiff.  And weez got sum new ones fwu da mail dat mommy lets us hav, so weez playin’ again.  Da smell isn’t gweat and da wet isn’t gweat, but we awe managin’.

Mommy on da udder hand, worries ‘bout us and gettin’ sick and wantin’ all ow stuff put away where it belongs.  Cuz altho’ weez okay wiff it all mommy finks weez wuld all be better off once fings go back to normal fur us.  Altho’ da only move meez evew made wuz fwum da yucky bweeder to mommy’s house (me wuz dopted da same day we wuz wescued),  sis Lexi has moved a lot in hers lifetime and sez mommy wuldn’t go anywhere wiff out us.  So me is takin’ sum of meez cues fwum her.  All da boxes not bodder sis Lexi so there’s no weason fur them to upset me.  And me is a cat after all.  And as such me luvs boxes.  

As fur da motel they’re talkin’ ‘bout puttin’ us up in,  since we awe used to change, so long as mommy be there, we awe okay wiff dat too.  Weez won’t lie and say weez walk wight into da room and own it, but it only takes a kupple hours and weez awe okay and actin’ like weez at home.  So, fur all of yous wunnewin’ out there, weez okay, but fanks fur yous purrayers.  Mommy can suwe nuff use them cuz hers not okay wiff any of this, and hers be fed up!!!    

So, here’s to a Funday Munday hope yous plannin’ sumfin’ gweat.
