Yawn yawn












While everyone is napping I decided I would take some time out of my own slumber and post some updates on MY blog - things those others won't tell you!!!!

Like how the "honey badger" had to have a sudden and quick bath this morning. Gawoof gawoof - the Mom picked him up for a cuddle and suddenly held him way out at arm lengths mumbling about what a 'stinker he was. I wandered over to investigate and yes, he had that enticing aroma of "eu de colgne dead bird" vintage of at least 2 days and fermented in 100+ heat. He was pretty ripe I must say and I did enjoy seeing him get not one but two baths before the Mom was satisfied that the smell was gone. Personally I kinda liked it - but Mom found the offending perfume maker and removed it before I could partake in a good roll myself. This is the fourth dead baby bird we have found and mom thinks there are some other birds trying to get into the nest boxes and throwing the babies out - she isn't too happy about that. Nor was she happy when she found "IT" had found one and was happily chewing the head off - can we all say eeeeeerrrrkkkkkk.

As for me - I am enjoying retirement - from not having to play with "IT". He no longer pushes toys in my face or jumps on me - now. Instead "THING" does that to "IT" Okay Mom - Honey Badger not THING - she says it's okay to call him that but not "THING" We all know that "THING" and "IT" are their real names though!!!! Time to head back for some more slumber......yawn.
