Today we were supposed to discuss Life After Life but I’m on vacation! Oops! I didn’t realize I would be out of town when I picked the 6th and since I don’t want to spend the day at the computer (who does?) I decided to postpone it until next week. Besides, I forgot to give everyone a head’s up that discussion was coming.
Hey, head’s up! Discussion is coming up next Tuesday!
My Monday post might be a little late because we’ll be heading home, but I’m still walking everyday. In fact, last night I took a walk I didn’t want to take.
I’m getting lots of people asking me about Morris. He hasn’t returned. [Devastated Panda Face] We are all pretty sad about it, even the Mister, who agreed we can keep him if he comes back. It’s cute that he believes he actually had a choice.
This has been a lesson for the boys, especially Mikey. He doesn’t understand how someone can abandon a pet. The idea doesn’t compute for him no matter what explanation I give, and I can’t say I blame him. He spent most of Friday worried about Morris. We looked for him several times that day and I’ve looked for him every day since. So far, nothing. It’s possible the new owners took him inside once they heard about the crazy neighbor who was threatening to beat down their door with cat food. When Mikey wasn’t worried about the cat, he was worried about the dog they gave away. He’s convinced Morris and this dog considered each other siblings and that the dog is worried and missing Morris. I hope he’s wrong.
Nico woke up yesterday morning and said he had a dream about Morris. He dreamed the whole family went looking for him (we did, as you can see in yesterday’s pictures) and when we came home, we found him sitting on one of our trash cans. We were all very happy and brought him inside to “live with us forever” with all our pets, past and present, including the hermit crabs.
Did I mention we have hermit crabs? I brought them with us on vacation because I didn’t trust my brother to regulate the temperature and humidity of their tank with the proper degree of insanity I require. I do trust him enough to stay at our house taking care of Buddy and Buster since Buddy is on several medications twice per day and needs constant care–my Soft Touch opinion. Bonus: my brother is a cat guy and has been since we were kids. I showed him a picture of Morris and he knows to be on the look out. Fingers crossed!
Have a great week, everyone.
