Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet,
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Terrible Tuesday Outtakes
As you may have guessed, not all of us are as certifiably crazypants happy as Felix to model the Horrible Holiday Hat (HHH). This has not excused us from being subjected to wearing it; in fact, for some reason, our unwillingness to endure its strangling embrace amuses Mommy and Daddy immensely.
They were simply awful, braying and chortling with glee at us whilst we struggled to escape.
The only consolation was that Mommy had to go through hundreds of photos...here's a few:
Sylvester refuses to face the camera...
...as The Baby races for the hills. A wise move. She's seen this dog-n-pony show far, far too many times.
Rupert: Mommy, you AND your double chins are gonna die. Tonight.
Tiny Johnson: Nice backdrop management and composition...NOT! And you call me slow.
There's a bitey happening here. Of course with Grayce there's always a bitey happening!
claws are out as Waterstones take a swipe at Amazon for its attempts to launch
a super fast 'drone' delivery service by claiming it will use a fleet of owls
to rival it. In the one minute spoof advert, a man posing as Waterstones' press
manager, hootingly named Jon Owls, tells potential customers the service will
enable them to receive their order within 30 minutes of placing it online.Waterstones claim O.W.L.S - short for
Ornithological Waterstones Landing Service could be just as effective. So on
snigger silly Saturday ...... What did the owls say
on a rainy night? Too wet to woo!
Thank you Travelling Catswe are thrilled and we will pop it on our awards page with pride.
better watch out, and you better not cry, because if you are bad Santa
Claus is not coming to town. That is what my servant told me after my escapades
in the park recently. She Who Must Be Obeyed Ignored said the only
visitor I will be getting is none other than the gruesome creature called the
Krampus. Crickey, bumpus, rumpus could he be real? Apparently this cloven hoofed
counterpart to Santa will be turning up anytime soon to drag me kicking and
woofing all the way to his underground lair if I don't behave. He will beat me with a rusty chain and drag me
in a basket to a squirrel free hell. So I will try and be extra good and
refrain from rolling in stinky goodness, climbing trees and getting stuck and
limbo dancing under fenced off trees. Drats life is going to be well boring but
after the 25th my usual mayhem will resume.So with that be good and don't let Krumpus
visit your crib. I have my paws crossed that the Big Fat Man In Red will come
by and bring me something good this year. What do you hope to find in your
stocking this year?
In my never ending quest to dead some pesky tree rats I have been doing a lot of this.
High up I get a good view of my territories which I love to terrorize.
Now this tree has been fenced off since Summer as it has a wasps nest in it. The squirrels like it here as none of us can get to them.
The fences are tied together so no one can remove them.
It may be a small gap butt where there is a will there is a way.
And once inside my own private Alcatraz I thought I'd go climb up the tree after those pesky tree rats.
I got all the way up here. Hmmm problem was the pesky tree rats ran away and I was stuck in Alcatraz. After tem minutes and a huge audience a nice man came to my rescue. He leaned over and pulled all 17kilos of pure hunting muscle over the fence. No actual pix of the great event as She Who Must Be Obeyed Ignored was running around like a headless chicken squirrel in panic mode.
I was free and feeling fine......pity I can't say the same for his back. Enough of Waspgate. Did I feel guilty?????? Not on your nelly as yesterday had an epic roll in dead pigeon carcass and that was some brilliant lot of stinky goodness. Got sprayed with horrid perfume (stinky badness) stuff for my troubles. Ho hum the trails and tribulations of park life.
Well tomorrow is another day.
Have a wonderful Wednesday all.
