Good morning, friends.
Today I'm a bit disgruntled. Oh, I know! It is spring finally and I should be happy but just wait until you hear what's going on today.
Grammy is going out for a chocolate bar today and we aren't allowed to share it. At least she could bring home a nibble for each of us. Don't you agree? What's that, Sweetie?
Sweetie: Not a Twix you goof. Twinrix. It's a needle. Do you want a needle in your leg? Huh?
Rondo: She thinks she knows everything. (shouting out loud) You're spoofing me, Sweetie. Grammy wouldn't go willingly for a needle. She's either going for a candy bar or she's going out for breakfast. I heard her say Twix. Well, if it isn't a candybar maybe she's going for breakfast. That's almost as bad. Doesn't she know Twix are for kitts not old people. It ways so in the cereal commercials. *Walks off in a huff*
Sweetie shakes her head... no talking to him. (chuckles to herself) Well, he's gone. Guess I'll finish the blog.
Wait until he hears about his outing! *giggles* Yep! He and Etude are off to the vettie on Friday for a claw trim and health checkup *tehee* but not Mousie and me. We girls are perfect. Yep! See how 'disgruntled' he'll be then.
See you next week. I'm sure he'll have lots to say then though it may not be printable.
Have a great week, friends. Love from Mischief and Mayhem Central.

Good morning, dear friends. This post is going to be brief today. We want to feature our doggie friend in Virgin Islands. MerriBugg is her name and she lost her mommy person suddenly and now she needs to find a new home where she can be loved and pampered forever.
The following is the posting that has been put on Facebook by the St. Croix Animal Welfare Centre. MerriBugg is there and being cared for until a new home is found for her. Let's hope that is sooner than later.
St. Croix Animal Welfare Centre posted the following ...
They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, and it’s certainly true about this gentle, sweet girl. Her name is Merri Bugg. Her owner passed away unexpectedly last week.
We all know how devastating it is to suddenly lose a loved one. Merri Bugg lost her whole world - the person who rescued her from the bush, who patiently taught her to trust humans and to accept love and kindness. Now she needs a new best friend - could it be you?
Merri Bugg is about 7 years old. She is calm and quiet, good with cats, housebroken, and leash-trained. Please open your heart to this sweet soul. To meet Merri Bugg, come to the Animal Welfare Center’s main location at 5 Corners.
As a dear friend said in comments: My heart goes out to her. Such a very loyal girl. She deserves a wonderful home.
So, let's hope between Facebook postings and other exposure this new home with a loving family can be found very soon for this dear sweet girl.
Best of Luck sweet MerriBugg.
March Has Arrived
by Sweetie, purrsonal trainer and mischief maker
March is here, dear friends and with it comes a need to shake off the winter lethargy, wiggle our butts, shake our tails and start a movin' and a groovin'! I know that'll be no problem for our wee Mousie. She is often seen chasing her tail and scampering between bedroom and livingroom, kitchen and litterbox ... but those boys! They are another thing altogether. Sedentary, sleepy and slumbering sloths, they tend to sleep away their days - Kind of like Grammy when she isn't knitting.
What's that, Grammy? I sleep all day? Well, of course I do. I patrol and keep you and everyone else safe all night while you all sleep. BUT, to get you in shape I'm willing to give up my naps. *Adjusts halo*
Well, it's time to light a fire under all three butts and get them out of their beds, chairs or whatever they hunker down in and into a routine. And that is my job. I must say, it isn't an easy one. No siree. It is definitely a challenge with those three.
So, here's the plan. Empty Grammy's cupboards of appliances, and anything else that is hard and uncomfortable. You know the things I mean - Kitchen-Aid mixer, blender, food processor, slow cooker and anything else I can find. If I put them on all surfaces where the boys might nap and Grammy's chair and bed they'll have no place to sit or lie down to nap. Then drag them into my fitness gym to start exercising.
That might take some work though. They can be stubborn, especially Grammy. Yep, She's bigger than me and feisty, but I'm determined. *giggles*
So, here goes... *Scampers into the kitchen to gather appliances* Oomph! This mixer is heavy. *Drags it to the sofa.* Exhausted she lies down on sofa beside it and falls asleep.
Etude and Rondo giggle and creep quietly onto the sofa then Etude whispers. Whew! That was close, Rondo.
Well, folks. I think we are safe for today. She's out. Enjoy your day.
