when it rains...

things grow here....I know, normally rain does make things grow but....

I'm meowing about strange things......



as in all over the place....


of every size, shape and color....



and some appear to be not of this world....


I know you think purrhaps, 'why is Romeo concerned with the growth of mushrooms in the yard'....


ah, well it's not the mushrooms....it's what it means.....

rain.....lots of rain....

at a most inconvenient time....

preparing for the Country Living Fair in Stone Mountain, Georgia...


because she is one of those weirdos people who has to set up a trail run.

Tents, furniture and roughs out the displays and where they will be.


So rain?


Not so good during this preparation time.

Because one might find that their canopy collapsed during the night when "showers" became thunderstorms...



And then there are the pieces that got wet after she had cleaned them.....and the rain came down so hard that dirt and mud splashed up on them....so much for cleaning them....

(don't tell her this picture is here, she'd cut off my whiskers)

...or painting....because with the humidity things were not drying as they should....

and then it rained again.....


so the paint can had to come out...again....

and then it rained some more....

which meant more.....


and then.....

we finally gave up and put it all up, scratched the trail run.

Which now means....that without planning.....


...she probably has more loaded to take then will fit in the space....

I think I counted 21 totes of smalls,

and like a bazillion things here in the back with just barely enough room left for a cat....

(can you find the Romeo?)

And then there is the bed of the truck....

and the cab is full too!

(yes, those tree branches are IN the truck, don't ask why but they are going)

So I am meowing and asking....

purrlease stop by and see if there isn't something you need,

because you know this stuff is NEVER going to all fit back in there!

As an incentive, bring me a love Romeo note and I'll make sure she gives you a 15% discount on any one item!  Doesn't matter the price - it all goes! And hopefully some of it with mew!

P.S. I'm sending Dad one day to check up on her (quality control, customer service, etc) and hopefully take some pictures....be sure and watch for them next week.  Don't worry setup may start tomorrow but I won't send Dad into that mess because I'm just that kind of nice, also known as self preservation since he's feeding me while she's gone.

Purrs to all!

The things you have to put up with, Romeo, I sure feel for you. Visitors from outer space, almost getting stuck on top of all HER stuff, and above all, RAIN!!! I don't know how you keep your sunny disposition. Well, I hope SHE has a jolly good time, pehaps SHE will be in a good mood when she gets back and give you lots of lovely treats.

But you did manage to cram yourself into the load. Hard to see you but those beautiful stripes helped. I hope "she" has a wonderfully successful time at the fair and that you're well fed while she's gone. Kitty pets from here. Diane

I believe you must be a more good natured cat than I - for I never would have permitted all those trial thingies cutting into my snuggle/nap time and I'd have put the bitey on her.
When Pellie gets busy crapping - err I mean crafting I mess everything up if she doesn't stop what she's doing every half hour or so to play with me.

I hope your human has a good time and sells lots of stuff.

Have a great week.

Purrs,
Genghis

Durn it Romeo! I was so hoping to be in GA this year and visit 'her' booth but alas I am still stuck in Texas. Of course I'm here for a good reason taking care of my Mom! Hope the sale goes well and hey I saw you peeking out of that truck!!
hugs, Linda
