Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, every-buddy!

And Happy Hanukkah and a belated Happy Solstice to every-buddy, too!

Momma and Coco and I are all at Granny and Poppa's now. We drove here on Saturday, and since then it has just snowed, snowed, and snowed. I am staying inside and just looking at the snow. My cousins Sophie, Sassy, and the new baby-cousin Cheetah are here, too. Sophie and I have a good time playing, but Sassy and Cheetah are kind of obnoxious little girls. I just ignore them.

I'm sorry I'm not doing a grate job of visiting everybuddy. Momma is still under a lot of stress. She leaves tomorrow and goes to San Francisco for Very Important Job Interviews, she told me. Maybe when she comes back I can convince her to help me catch up with you all!

In the meantime, enjoy a grate holly-day with your families!
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

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!

Apologies, buddies

Hi buddies--

Sorry I've been gone for the past couple of weeks. Momma is hogging the computer, and when she's not on the computer, she's stressing out and won't help me blog.

I will be back before Christmas, buddies, I promise. But I gotta keep things together here--Coco and I have our work cut out for us!

I'll catch up with you soon, buddies!

Your buddy, Jimmy Joe
