      Posting these cat-cartoons-without-the-cartoon was a long journey that I don’t know if I’ll repeat soon again. A daily blog is tough … even when you have your material handed to you! But, I couldn’t have done it without the artwork … Continue reading →

Friday – 11/14

Posted by joeabbott on November 15, 2008

Friday was a leisure day.

In the early morning, about 8 AM, Suzanne and I headed north with Trout, our “old cat” to the vet. It was the usual looking and talking and proddding, all to the mews of our aging feline friend who wanted nothing more than a little place to nap where it was warm.

That finished up but with the long drive there and back, it wasn’t until around 11 that we got home. I needed to get some work done so I headed into our “office” for a bit of what I call work-work. That is, stuff I do for my employer. It took longer than I thought and when it was done, both mom and Suzanne were taking naps.

I chose a spot on the couch to read a bit of my magazine, do a crossword, and laze about with my kitty friends.

In the afternoon we were all up and just busied ourselves with day-to-day things but around 5 both mom and Suzanne left for a meal at The Herb Farm. This was a mother and daughter-in-law outing … or, as it was Suzanne’s surprise for mom, wife and mother-in-law outing … so I stayed home. By all accounts, it was a sumptuous, wonderful affair that ranked among the top meals either had ever had. I was delighted it was such a success.

Me? I sat on the couch all night playing Fable2, had bean soup for dinner, and enjoyed a bit of solitude. We were all happy when we finally went to our respective reposes around midnight.
