Or, to put it mathematically: 21 year old blonde + no common sense(1 bedroom apartment)x 5 cats = .....
you guessed it, X = "insanity"!!!!!
There were cats everywhere! On the table, on the counters, on the chairs, in the shower, under the furniture, and one particularly un-endearing creature crying and scratching at the bedroom door nonstop every night, all night! By the time I left, I felt like I was covered in cat hair (I probably was).
|And THIS is only four of them!|
|The kittens, or do I mean, the culprits.|
|They look so innocent, don't they?|
Isn't it funny how when she was living at home, it never occurred to her to conserve on paper products...or electricity...or water? I still remember when Mr. Trucker and I first married and blended our two families, how shocked he was at how much toilet paper three girls could use in comparison to he and his son. But it's different now that Sassy is living on her own, and paying her own expenses. Yes sirree Bob! Things are different now!
While I was at Sassy's, we spent a lovely several hours touring the Como Park Conservatory and Zoo in St. Paul. www.comozooconservatory.org/ What a cool place!
|Isn't that the coolest looking building?|
|The dome from inside|
Lots and lots of beautiful plants and flowers!
|No Sassy! I don't think you're supposed to touch the fern!|
|Aaargh! I know you're DEFINITELY not supposed to eat it!|
|Pretty little waterfally sort of thing|
|I called this fellow "Emo Boy". He was rather entertaining.|
|Isn't it pretty? I guess they do weddings there.|
|Now Sassy, you're not getting any ideas, are you?|
|Ack! No! What did I tell you about eating the plants!|
|This cute little fellow was fascinated with the goldfish.|
|What's that you say? You prefer to be called "Koi"?|
|Saucy little minx!|
|Aha! There he is again!|
|Some pretty greenery.|
|I forget what kind of toadstool this is...no wait! That's a lamp!|
How about a few highlights from the zoo?
|The three-toed sloth. Check out those nostrils!|
|Here he is, showing another expression.|
|This fine fellow broke out his tuxedo for our visit!|
