Pogo's New Door & A Bundle Of Sunshine
September 29, 2014
Good morning. We are in for another gorgeous day here in my little part of the world. This morning, it is 63F degrees and soon the temp will be up to 79F. Oh, I just love it!!! After today, we are in for a week of low to mid 60's and lots of rain showers. At least, that's what the weather man predicts.
Well, where do I start? Saturday, Home Depot delivered my new storm door around 6 p.m. The nice man even brought it into the house for us and set it up in the front hallway. Yesterday afternoon, Eddie and Kevin came by to install the beautiful new door. And it IS a beauty!! Here's a shot of Eddie and Kevin working on the door.
The door looks rather ordinary, but it isn't. The whole door is screened, and there are two glass panels, each of which can be moved up and down. This way, I can move the bottom glass panel up a bit and Pogo can watch everything that's happening outside while enjoying the fresh air. As you can see, he has his little blanket set up by the door and is enjoying the sights.
We have a large wooden chair in our yard, way over under the trees, and some of the dwarfs enjoy sitting there once in a while with a cup of coffee and a newspaper. I'll have to take a photo of the chair. Well anyway, early yesterday morning Joe noticed that we had a visitor who was all curled up and napping on the big chair. Our visitor stayed like that all day.
When Eddie and Kevin arrived, the visitor came over to make friends with Kevin. And such a beautiful visitor this was!! Dwarf Helen and a couple of the guys came out to sit on the front steps and our visitor was soon purring with delight and making new friends with them.
Our visitor was a very beautiful young kitty. When I went out to pat the kitty, I was horrified that my hands landed on and in between bones!!!!! This beautiful baby was starving. One of the guys got it a bowl of water, while another brought out a can of tuna. Kitty couldn't gulp the food down fast enough.
Needless to say, there was no way we were going to leave this little one outside to fend for itself. Besides, she wanted to adopt us. How could we say no? The dwarfs decided to name her "Sunshine" because she was like a ray of beautiful sunshine. After shopping for a few kitty necessities, Dwarf Helen gave Sunshine a bath and set her up with a brand new bed, kitty litter box, food and water.
What do you think? Isn't she beautiful? How could anyone leave this little one to starve to death? Pogo and Sunshine have met and sniffed each other, and are working on becoming good friends. Things are going to get a bit more interesting around here soon.
Well that's my news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.
Hugs, Edna B.
