Summer Song Time

I am singing my Summer Song to you
Long days and sunshine gently
Warming the air once cool

I am singing my Summer Song 
Peaches to eat a-plenty
The season doesn't last long

I am singing my Summer Song once more
A segue to Fall leaves that dapple
Me as I lay on the Apple Tree floor
Eating. . . apple. . . cores

Ahhhhhh Summer
Ohhhh Fall

Total Eclipse Bombshell

That is right folks. One of the biggest natural phenomena in decades and we HAVE NO SUN. I was all prepared, too.

  • Had a NAP
  • Did my potty JOB
  • ACQUIRED Eclipse Glasses (Thank you Auntie AB)
I am so in a quandry over this because the FOG has been missing for a while and I was hoping for its return. BUT NOT TODAY OF ALL DAYS.

The infamous San Francisco Bay Area Fog showed up today. Not just at the COAST. Not just on the PENINSULA. Nope, nope, nope It stretches across the whole Bay Area. 

It's okay, though. We will be watching on NASA.com and I know the overall color outside will change as the eclipse moves through its stages. We just won't see the actual eclipse.

The sun came OUT just as the eclipse was getting underway. Mommy was squealing with delight as she gathered her ECLIPSE glasses, pinhole camera, phone, and went to the backyard. I went out too but she ushered me inside when I kept looking where she was looking. She said she could not risk damaging my eyes. 

The view through pinhole camera. The breeze kept moving
it so her picture is not real great. This was at
50 percent

I didn't know. I thought it was a BIRD, or a PLANE, or a SUPERHERO, or something.

Eclipse shadows

Anyhow, she said it was miraculous and COOL and she is soooo happy she was able to view it afterall. She watched for a zillion HOURS and finally let me come out. She showed me there was a strawberry I had overlooked and so I forgave her for incarcerating me.

I'm FREE. . . . .

August is for Celebrating

Tuesday was my Mommy #2's birthday. She shares it with Aunt B. So we always have TWICE the fun when we celebrate.

The daytime was not too exciting because everyPUGGY had to work. It was a day like any other day except IT WASN'T. It was my Mommy's birthday. So we slept in a little (like .9 seconds) and we had a tasty breakfast. The we went to work and I spent ALL DAY cuddled up to my Mommy's feet. It is my favorite place to sit.

Then the whole family minus the FURBABIES (harrumph!) went out to dinner. I HEARD it was a good time but I do not have first hand experience. But I CAN tell you every one of the humans (except Cousin E's boyfriend) came home GROANING about being too full. Nonetheless, this happened


Did you watch the whole thing? I am pretty proud of it, myself. I didn't howl at the end like I sometimes do. . . but I did sing with passion and I think that is more important. One has to FEEL the song to SELL the song, as they say.

Then Mommy and Aunt B opened gifts and gushed about everything. They were happy, I can tell. And I was so happy too. I love it when my Mommy is happy.

Have an absolutely FAB weekend everyPUGGY. I am thinking some BEACH might happen.

Well, You Can Tell By The Way I Use My Walk. . .


. . . You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin'
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive . . .

Sunshine is a Fashionable Kitty . . . #chewyinfluencer

Yeah, that's the DOG bag of treats. . . so what!

This is Sunshine the Cat enjoying a TREAT of Merrick Backcountry Freeze-dried Raw Chicken Treats. She likes them. . . she likes them very much. . . they make her want to do some pretty crazy things . . .


Wearing BREAD


Wearing a CAT HAT (?)

Wearing a CHEWY.COM box

The Merrick Backcountry Freeze-dried treats make her that giddy and THAT silly. She says they make her feel like a kitten again. And you can see why - these treats are made from REAL MEAT and not all that filler and fake stuff.

Chicken, Chicken Liver, Dried Peas, Dried Potatoes, Gelatin, Salt, Mixed Tocopherols (Preservative)

And ever the THRIFTY cat, she says Chewy.com has the best price and the largest collection of Merrick products she has found. She does not shop anywhere else . . . so . . .

Sunshine wants to THANK Chewy.com for sending her these treats, free of charge, so she can feel like a kitten again. And she would like say that the opinions expressed in this post are hers alone and she received no payment for them.

Finally, she would like to thank you, dear readers, for attending her impromptu fashion show today.

On Strike!!!!

Let it be known that I. . . Noodles the Pug . . . am on strike. I am striking for the right to MAKE my weekend LONGER. And by LONGER I mean by a FEW more days. Let's be honest. . . 2 days is not nearly enough down time. It definitely is not enough FAMILY time. It most assuredly is not enough PLAY time.

SO I am going to lay right here on this pillow until the weekend comes back around again. . . be that 1 day from now or 5. I am on STRIKE!!!
