Finally Friday

Oh man, buddies, sorry I've been gone for so long. Momma sent off four revised dissertation chapters to her committee yesterday, turned in students' grades, and got through her mock-job interviews this week, so I told her that she should take a break now to help me catch up with all of you.

This is what Ithaca looks like in the winter:

This was the snow we got last week. It melted at the beginning of this week, and when we got just a little bit of snow, and then that turned into a thin layer of ice over the yard. So yesterday I could just walk on top of it. But guess what's happening today? Another snow storm. Momma says we'll get about a foot today. I'm not too fond of snow. It makes your feets cold and your furs wet.

But sometimes a mancat's just gotta hold his breath and dive in so he can take care of his snoopervision duties.

Momma says I am a very tough guy. Here I am investigating the bush in the front yard. I think we have interlopers.

Yep, yep, I definitely suspect vishus deer. Stay vigilent, buddies.

I'm gonna try to catch up with all of you this evening, buddies! We've been very excited to get all of your beautiful holly-day cards. Momma tapes them up in the kitchen so we all can enjoy them!

I remember when my mom was writing her dissertation! There sure were a lot of re-writes. I used to jump up on the computer and walk across the keys to make her stop and pay attention to me. Mom says to tell your mom good luck!

We've been hearing about your eastern storms on tv. We got a storm yesterday and so today the people are all busy moving it from one place to another. Crazy people.

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

Jimmy Joe, please try to stay inside so your toesies keep warm, okay buddy! We know about the lack of blogging lately, our Momma and Daddy have a lot of stuff going on (good stuff, though) so Momma has been distracted and hasn't helped us as much lately. We know you and us wish things were different there, but what can we all say? Take care furriend!
Purrs and headbutts,

The Meezers said...

wow, you gots lots of snows down there! we gots snows up here too - and cold! is it as cold down there? Mommy says it was in the "single digits" last night.

MoMo said...

Hey JJ, you look fantastic against that snow. However, keep warm and don't get wet.

Concats to your Momma for all her efforts. Does it mean the dissertation is nearly all done. It would be such a relief.

One-Eyed Jack said...

Ugh, Evil White Stuff! We have it all deep like that here too. The vishus deers have overrun the neighbourhood, and it's so cold it can't even snow anymore! Instead the air freezes solid in ice shards!

I'm staying inside.

Thank you for saying I still look good with this furcut. In better news, Dr Tara called and said my bloods and pees were perfect!

You be careful of those vishus deers and the snow!

~Jack
