Every time I take Gidget “out on a walk”, this is how it ends up โ€“ with her just chillin’ on this aircon exhaust unit a scant few metres from our front door ๐Ÿคฃ As soon as our neighbour came outside, though, she decided she’d had enough outside time and wanted to go back in FAST!

Seems like it’s been ages since I last posted anything to this blog (!) but I might as well break the drought with a Gidget pic ๐Ÿ˜Š Happy Caturday, everyone!

It’s Caturday once again, so here’s a photo I took of a cat I saw on my walk to the supermarket the other day ๐Ÿ˜… It didn’t run away, but it did keep me under VERY close watch until I moved on!

My folks have gone away for the Labour Day long weekend, so we’re looking after Gizmo! So far today he’s:

  1. tried to trick me into thinking he’s too depressed to eat, then abruptly lunged and snarled at me when he thought I was going to eat his dog food ๐Ÿ™„
  2. tried to trick me into thinking he doesn’t like dentastix any more, and needs better treats
  3. rejected Gidget’s overtures to play with him at least twice (!) although to be fair, on one of the occasions he was asleep and Gidget woke him up with her surprise attack
  4. settled down on the bed with Gidget, as you see in the second photo
  5. gone on an exciting beach walk where he met other little dogs, peed on lots of bushes, and had a dunk in the ocean water
  6. settled on the couch with me and Gidget while I watched an episode of Doctor Who
  7. heard a cat meowing angrily at another cat outside, then ran to Gidget and me, barking to raise the alarm about this emergency situation

Missed yesterday, but here’s my entry for day 6 of the Micro.blog photo challenge ๐Ÿ˜… This infamous engineering project, Skyrail, runs close to my parents’ house. It enabled the removal of the level crossing that held up car traffic. Still waiting for the promised improvements to train service.

It’s Caturday (still for another few minutes) and Gidget is NOT feeling it ๐Ÿ˜… I think she wishes she could zip her igloo up to hide from the human pawpawrazzi!

Enjoying some solitude at home tonight because Viv’s gone to the movies with his brother. Well… would probably be enjoying the solitude more if there weren’t a pack of drunk teenagers running riot at the playground behind my block of flats ๐Ÿ˜‚ You win some, you lose some.

Tonight Viv and I went to some pub in Abbotsford where they were having a Mario Kart 64 championship ๐ŸŽฎ Unfortunately Viv was knocked out in the first round (he’s the Mario coming 3rd in this pic) and I didn’t compete but we still had a good time ๐Ÿ˜…

Thoroughly grey weather today as we wait for a tram at Windsor Station!
