Party Cat

3 Oct

Well, it’s day 3, and no great post ideas have come to mind.  I did read The Good Greatsby this morning, however, and took offense to his planned strategy to tax people who have pictures of cats wearing hats.  I’m concerned that I might end up paying more taxes because of the behaviour of one of my cats.  It’s Louise, of Thelma and Louise.  She’s a Siamese cat who cannot be held for longer than 3 seconds without the holder having to bizarrely turn their arms in double jointed, unmentionable ways just to keep hanging on to her twisting, contorting body. Did I mention she’s a Siamese?  So you see, it would be virtually impossible to put a hat on her without her cooperation.  I’ve tried showing her pictures of stylish cats, hoping she’ll get the idea and hold still long enough so we could put a hat on her, but she’s just not buying it.

So, if we can’t get a hat on her, why am I worried about the planned tax on people who have pictures of cats wearing hats?  Well, I’m concerned that a lampshade might be considered a hat. You know how people like to party with a lampshade on their head?  Well, Louise likes to wear a lampshade on her head.  Preferrably when the shade is still on the lamp, and the lamp is on. So I’m hoping for a tax exemption in this particular case. What do you think my chances are?

Loving October

2 Oct

Why is October my favorite month?

It comes after September, which can be so busy with back to school, back to sports, back to a routine after a relaxed summer attitude.

The temperature is often perfect….not too hot, but not too cold.

The sun is lower on the horizon, and the light on a bright day can be stunning.  More shadows, more contrast.

Baseball playoffs.

Thanksgiving.

Halloween.

And my favorite thing of all.  Pumpkins.  How can you not love pumpkins?
