Windy Sunday in Paradise

Hiding under a bush is a good idea today.  Is it March already?  Boy, do we have wind…again…but at least we don’t have to shovel it!

IMGP0636

Speaking of hiding, MM left the back hatch of the SUV open yesterday to unload some stuff and didn’t get around to closing it till after dark.  He got quite a surprise—a calico kitty was inside, peaking around his stuff!  Needless to say, she took off at lightening speed.

Note to self:  don’t leave doors open!

True story.  Our sweet Parker kitty adopted our RV park many years ago, and took his duty as park ambassador very seriously.  He loved to visit all the campers (he was supposed to be on mouse patrol, but he mostly sought out attention…which he got!).

One Monday morning we got a phone call from our manager saying that a couple from Atlanta had left the day before, arrived home and (thankfully!) opened up their camper to discover that they had a hitchhiker with them—Mr. Parker.  They turned around and drove him back to the park!

How many people would have done that?!

Parker went on to live a very indulged life—at our house.  I still miss that sweet boy.

Food for thought:  Nostalgia–Life in the past lane.

Do you have a special pet memory?

What a great story about a sweet cat. I loved it and it made me smile.

I hope the wind goes away soon. I hate day after day of big winds. Messes me up.

Have a terrific day in paradise. Big hugs from cold but sunny California. :)

Oh, I have over 40 years of favorite pet memories. I hope I remember them when I get to be eleventy seven so I can smile. And maybe cry a little bit.

People who have a heart for animals... that's the kind of people who would have drove Parker back home. :)

nope... We do not have to shovel it! YAY!

Have yourself a very YAYful day! big hugs xoxo

Awwww. Sweet Parker kitty. I was thinking about him the other day (no sneezing was involved).

Enjoy the warmer climes. :-)
