Pray harder...

"The playful kitten, with its pretty little tigerish gambols, is infinitely more amusing than half the people one is obliged to live with in the world." ~ Lady Sydney Morgan

Butter wouldn't melt....

This is the picture of a most expensive cat.  This is the cat that thought he could steal a wishbone & swallow it undetected.  Ummmm.  A boat ride, a couple of hours at the vets & several hundred dollars later my cat was returned to me considerably subdued & far less inclined to steal.  This time I was not so lucky.

I can no longer drink large amounts of coffee so I judiciously make myself the occasional latte throughout my day.  I look forward to them, savour them ~ limit them.  They aren't terribly helpful to a middle~aged waistline. I drink them while perusing blogs on~line ~ a habit my cats are very aware of.

And my cats, while terribly spoilt & allowed to snuggle on the desk with my computer & my coffee & me avoid my coffee cup.  It smells weird ~ & bitter.  They know it's hot.  And I am used to cats suddenly leaping up beside me, stomping across my keyboard & plonking their butt near the fan.  It happens numerous times every single day, & every day there is my cup parked on the desk where any spill is least likely to wreck havoc.

Except today.

Today Kirby took a flying leap from the floor to the desk to the printer.  Enroute he collected the coffee cup & dumped the entire contents over my laptop!  This was not healthy for my laptop.  We mopped up the mess & headed down to the computer man with my damp computer.

The computer man shook his head mournfully.  It was unlikely, he told us sadly, that anything bar the harddrive could be salvaged.  Still, he was prepared to investigate.  We were prepared to have him investigate. 

Our computer man is my hero! ♥ ♥ ♥  Kirby is still alive.  I am poorer than I was.  My computer is working again!

And the moral of this story:  When preparing to write a message the devil does not want delivered, pray harder before beginning!  It has been an exciting day

Where would we be without our pets?
You have two very pretty kittys.
Our cat, Mario, was ill last week. It seemed he had picked up some sort of virus and he wasn't eating much at all. We also noticed that he had lost his 'spark'. However after an expensive visit to the vet where he had two injections costing £70, he is back to normal. We know he's fully recovered because he is being very, very mischevous - as per usual. And aren't we pleased to see his naughty side on show again!!!

I am anxiously awaiting the message that was delayed by the spilled latte...

Ganeida said...

Hi Kay. Yes indeed! ☺ I love my cats but Kirby certainly knows how to get into an extraordinary amount of trouble!

Julie: I was so frustrated! I have been sitting on this message for months waiting on some prolonged time so I could get my head round it. I had my notes, I'd located some missing scripture, I was ready to go ~ then whammo! Just like that. No computer.

Are you sure you should be saying that to me in light of your convictions? Just asking. lol I'm all good with the Lord on it.

I did this as well. Except I was mopping and for some reason unbeknownst to me, I had my tea on my laptop table and my laptop on the couch. Needless to say, I spilt the tea all over the laptop. My dear husband fixed it except the p key which is a problem when your name is Penny. lol
