Saturday Sign


Benny: Guess what? We actually got sunpuddles yesterday! It was amazing! #1 and Ollie went out for a long walk in the morning, and they came across this wonderful sight at the little manor house next to where Heloise was born:

Isn't it just gorgeous? There is a very famous weathervane maker in a village not far from us. #1 has long thought it would be nice to have one. He makes them to order, so it could be horses, dogs and cats! But they are pretty expensive and #1 says it's more important to buy us good food!

And here is a pic of me enjoying the sunshine!

By the way, we have been abandoned again. #1 has gone off to Paree. She is staying with cousins for a couple of nights and on Sunday night, some friends from Chicago who are overnighting in Paris on their way back from vacation are taking her to dinner in a really fancy restaurant. Mr. G will of course be looking after us and #1 should be back around lunchtime on Monday.

We also learned late yesterday that our buddy Ernie from The Island Cats had gone to the Bridge. He had fought illness valiantly for many years, but his time was up. We hope he is reunited with Wally and Zoey. Run Free, Dear Friend, and our condolences to his family.


  1. That is a lovely weather vane, Benny. Did they model it on you. I hope #1 has a wonderful time on Paris.
    I was very sad to hear about Ernie.

  2. Lovely that #1 will be with family and friends in Paris! Being spoiled is always fun!
    Sorry about Ernie and sad for his family :((
    Enjoy your time with Mr G!

  3. #1 has a point. She can get you good food while you watch the neighborhood weather vane

  4. Dear Benny that weather vane looks a bit like you!
    Sounds like a great visit coming up for #1.

  5. so sorry to hear about Ernie. love the weather vane, and we think the same way, it would be great to have but you can't eat weather vanes.

  6. We applaud #1 having those priorities in order!

    Here's to safe travels to a fun night in Paris!

    PeeEssWoo: Hi Ollie - Make sure you look extra handsome for Mr G to capture to share with us!

  7. I agree, that's such a cool weather vane. I'm so glad you all got to enjoy some sunshine. Tell #1 to be safe, it doesn't look too happy in Paris right now. We're so sad about dear Ernie, sad, sad, sad.

  8. If #1 commissioned a weathervane it would have to be a stack of a horse on the bottom, then a dog and then a cat. We hope #1 has fun in Paree with her friends and family.

  9. Wow - look at that beautiful blue sky. It provides the perfect backdrop for the pretty weather vane. We hope #1 has a delightful time in Paris. So sorry for the loss of your friend Ernie.

    Woos - Misty and Timber

  10. That is the coolest weather vane I have seen, although you dont't need one to know which way the wind blows
