Earlier this week, I posted this picture.
This is Bobby...one of our "barn" cats.
Actually, Bobby is a garage cat.
He left the barn years ago, hoping to move into the house,
but with three dogs, there was just no room.
So, Bobby took up residence in the garage.
There he has several soft beds to choose from, water and food on demand,
and a heat lamp during the colder months.
I think that Bobby actually fancies himself a dog, not a cat.
He often rides shotgun in the gator to the barn,
much to Sam's chagrin.
Yesterday he rode along with me to visit the pigs.
It was his first visit that I had witnessed.
Bobby did what he always does when encountering another being...
he rubbed himself against the pigs and walked around and around them...
rubbing himself as he went.
I am sure he enjoyed their bristly fur.
I was a little nervous yesterday morning when we went out to do chores.
For the past three Thursdays, I have had to bathe Oakley with skunk treatment.
I don't know what it is about Thursdays and Oakley...but they are always bad news!
Well, true to form, he came back smelling to high heaven...not skunk, however.
He smelled so bad from the most foul, awful stench that he had rolled in...
I can only imagine what it might have been.
Two baths later he smelled good enough to let in the house.
Oakley....what am I going to do with you???
So, you see...
because I have the privilege of seeing things like this...
and so very much more beauty on a daily basis...
I guess bathing Oakley is the price I pay.
Truth be told...it's all worth it....but don't tell Oakley I said that!
Lastly, I wanted to share a little of the wedding plans with you.
Amanda and I made these cute cookies last week...
With a little tag that read "Will you bee my bridesmaid?" on the outside
of these bags that I sewed...
She packed them up carefully and sent them off to all corners of this country to the gals
that will be in her wedding next summer.
I had to wait until now to show you so I wouldn't ruin the surprise for any of the girls.
Can you believe it?....another Friday has come along.
My how time flies!
Have a great weekend...ours will be quiet with the exception of another 4 year old soccer game.
