Easy Like Sunday

I am just relaxing with my toys.  When Mom went to get the camera, I was up on the kitchen table, helping her read the Sunday paper.  I jumped down and came in here while she was gone.

Karen Jo:  You are really good at moving while I am off getting the camera.  So instead of a fun picture of you sitting on the paper while looking out the window, I got yet another shot of you lying next to your Star Chaser.  It looks like you are ignoring your toys again, but I know that you play with them.  I found fluffy beaver down the hall next to the night light today.

Sometimes I just like to play by myself, without any help from you.  Mom's war with the ravens over the suet feeder continues.

Karen Jo:  To recap:  first I put the suet feeder in the crab apple tree in the front yard, but the ravens found that they could unhook it from any branch I put it on.  Next I got a snap hook and put it on one of the eye-bolts on the clothesline.  They discovered how to get the cage open and take all the suet.  I wired the cage shut and they discovered that they could unhook the cage from the chain.  Once they got the cage on the ground, they could eat all the suet very quickly.  Now I have closed the hook from the chain completely and so far it is working.  I don't care if the ravens help the starlings and the flickers eat the suet; I just don't like it when they find a way to eat it all at once, so the other birds don't get a chance at it. I give the ravens Herman's left over canned food.

Not much else is going on around here.  Mom's new computer came in, but she hasn't hooked it up yet.

Karen Jo:  I am excited to get a new computer, but I dread all the stuff I have to go through to get it up and running.  My new computer has Windows 7 on it and I am afraid that most of my programs won't work any more and I will have to get new ones.  I might even have problems getting it online.

Moms!  All worry, worry, worry.  At least I can help her relax at night by demanding my petting.

The ravens are very persistent and intelligent. We get trouble with magpies eating all the small bird food.Good luck setting up the new computer. Our mum got a new laptop just before Christmas with Windows 7 and she said it was very easy to set up. Her desktop is Vista though and she can't transfer from one to the other.

I know just how you feel. Whenever I'm doing something cute and just want to revel in my cuteness... the peep comes along with that camera of hers. It's really an invasion of my privacy, don't you think?

I agree with Nerissa...our privacy is non existant.

We hope the new computer is easy to set up! We always do cute things until Mom goes for the flashy box...then we sleep!

Funny about the suet. Our birds are much less greedy, and eat it slowly. Herman....you look so floofy!

Herman, you are doing a good job of not giving your human good poses for her camera! Serves her right for trying to take pictures on a Sunday, when you should have the day off.

Sounds like those ravens could use a little "thinnin out", if you know what we mean! HaHaMeow!

Those are some persistent birds. I think Herman could help you with them...

Herman, we bet if you could go out you would sort those pesky ravens out! Tell your Mom that W7 is great, it's a lot simpler than she thinks.

Aren't those ravens clever! I do like them, even if they play unfair. Herman, keep up those demands. Cuddles are so soothing for us.

We like ANY picture of you, handsome Herman! Concats on your mom about getting a new computer; we sure hope she gets it all hooked up soon. :)

Hugs to you both!

We hope the camera, raven, and suet problems get werked out!

Grrreta said...

Wow, those ravens sound very determined! Herman, your BIRD TV must have some very action-packed programming.

Herman, I, Zoe, always get in trouble for moving when my mom gets her camera, too. She says all of my pictures are pretty much 1 of 5 shots, and I ruin any chance of her getting any more. hehe

We've been out of the loop for a long time, and we just saw where Miss Emma left for the bridge. We're so sorry we did not make it over here early to send our condolences. We hope you'll accept our purrs and headbutts so late.

Love, Fuzzy and Zoe
