It has truly been warm here...or should I say a bit sweltering..but I AM NOT complaining..I was so cold last summer so I am enjoying every drop of sweat that falls from my forehead into my eye! When it's summer it needs to be hot but my poor friends in the Backyard Bed and Bistro are having a wilting time of it. However, last Friday was a most delightful day....we all took naps together...I love my furry friends! They gathered around me and saw that I was napping so they perched themselves on cool rocks, leafy branches and moist cool earth and slept with barely an eye open. First I read to them from a book I was reading and then when they saw me lay my head down, napping we went!

I frequently read a blog called Daisy Cottage. Kim of that blog is such a genuine and sweet person and her blog today was on being free to decorate the way you want to..and I say Hear,Hear!
WE love our decorating shows but sometimes they make us feel that we are not decorating properly...have too much color or what we are all probably guilty of...too much stuff. We love our color and stuff and should be surrounded by all that we love...it makes us feel safe...and if we habitually watch the news...we are made to feel unsafe...so Color up those abodes and pile in that stuff! Your house is your world and you can make it a billowy nest that two kitties would love to sink into!

And that it was!
As the sun set every one who was any one and their closest relatives were there. Excessive amounts of food was consumed in a frenzy with bits and crumbs dropped where ever they partied. Drinking...oh ho ho yes, there was drinking...and jumping into the pond in their birthday suits. There was dancing on the bar and chasing the new girl in town whose attitude would have turned off any sober potential suitor. But not these boys..these guys strutted their stuff till they passed out on the tables and ground. Rude cat calls and resultant hisses at the most bold was the haughty attitude that girl displayed that night.
At one point in the long night there were 2 gals chasin' one guy..screaming and running..then..soft cooing was heard after the pursuit and a look of guilt on the faces of the participants as they crawled from behind the fence. tsh tsh. Nearby resident parents tucking their inquisitive young into bed, had to cover the little ones eyes and ears!
Late into the wee hours of the morning a lone singer continued...excited by the gaiety of party lights and unwilling to give up that last robust note... Finally, enough was enough...the big switch had to be pulled to grow the darkness that announces Closing Time!
Next day the Wild Life Bed and Bistro was unusually still...all for a couple who wandered in and out trying to pick up the pieces of their dignity...but it was a wobbly entrance and exit.
