Ginger Wed.: My news

Whew, buddies! Am I exhausted.

Auntie Jane and her two mini-Beans came here on Saturday, and Momma and Coco and I were really busy keeping them entertained and comfortable.
As you know, we live in a pretty small 'partment, so this is what we did: the mini-Beans went to sleep on Momma's bed at night, and Momma and Auntie Jane slept on the bed that comes out of the sofa. And then at night, Momma cooked food outside on the grill. But they were gone during the day seeing things like this:
and swimming at places like this:
Coco and I are exhausted from entertaining the mini-Beans, too. As you know, I am a great host-cat, and I let the mini-Beans scrunch me and run up to me from across the yard, because it keeps them happy. This is us hangin' out on Momma's bed:

So that's why I haven't been visiting you all for the past few days, buddies. As you can see, I've been really busy.

Finally, I'd like to thank my great buddies, Sabrina, Sam and Simon the St. Louis Meezers for this wonderful award! You are great buddies--thanks!

Those are some fantastic fotos, JJ! You are a far better cat host than any of us in this house would ever be.
Of course, it's not like we have a good human role model.

Those mini-beans are very good at keeping us busy, that's for sure. But you were very good to let them pet you. That's a lot better than I am.

It looks like you were a great host. It is hard work to be such a good host. Make sure you rest up now.

It looks like your mombean and her family had a good time too.

Jimmy Joe ... I'm glad that you survived that "visit" with your furs intact. Baby beans can be hard on the furs.
