(Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Eggnog-06_profile-circleHello, I’m Eggnog! It’s been awhile since I’ve had the chance to write a post for Carol’s blog. I was supposed to write the Wordless Wednesday post the past two weeks, but Sherman kept pleading to take my turn. Don’t let “The General” fool you – he’s a big baby.

Now that the platform is mine, I would like to take this opportunity to put my brothers, Walter and Sherman, on notice.



The bed is mine, boys. Continue reading

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink.

With the windows open all weekend, I had the chance to catch up with our neighbor cat, Baby Girl. If you read Friday’s post, you may recall that Steve was laughed out of his gang initiation with the Springhill Ballers for wearing what was evidently a not very gang-like outfit.


Unfortunately for Steve, the Springhill Ballers do not find leather queens intimidating.

On his way home, Steve passed members of the Springhill Ballers’ rival gang, the Creekview Disciples, who hooted and hollered at him. After getting laughed out of his own gang initiation, he was particularly sensitive to perceived ridicule. Continue reading

Creekview Story, Part II

[New to my blog or missed last Friday’s post? You might want to read this first.]

Well, I’m afraid I was unsuccessful in deterring Steve from joining the Springhill Ballers. I warned him that his new friend Gus, leader of the Ballers, has a checkered past which could spell trouble. But Steve didn’t care. All he was worried about was finding the right outfit for his initiation.


After trying on too many of Ethel’s costumes to count, looking through countless issues of our moms’ Vogue Knitting, and scouring Ravelry, Steve finally settled on what he thought was the perfect outfit. He even used our moms’ Amazon Prime account to order it so he’d have it in time for his initiation. I hope I’m there when our moms see THAT mystery charge!

In the days building up to Steve’s initiation, Continue reading

(Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Sherman-01_profileHello, this is The General. If you’re thinking that my sister, Eggnog, was supposed to write this week’s Wordless Wednesday, you would be correct. However, I have a follow-up to last week’s follow-up blog post. A post-post follow up.

And, I confess: I like blogging. It’s opening me to a whole new world of dogs, humans, and even cats who are friendly and generous with their ideas to enhance my strategies for chewy domination. Besides, why should Carol get to have all of the fun? Continue reading

Mission: Possible

I’ve not made much headway looking into the situation with the neighborhood gangs and Steve’s initiation. Steve spent much of the weekend looking for outfit ideas on Pinterest and Ravelry (my moms’ favorite knitting website — it’s bookmarked in the browser). Needless to say, he didn’t get far.


Knitters: Please do not do this to your cat.

Steve didn’t have much time to do research because we spent a good part of the weekend being hounded by our German Grandma’s dog, Huckleberry. Continue reading
