Sweetie, chronicler of Important Dates and especially Mischief.
Good morning, friends.
We've been gone most of the summer... but we're back. We cannot promise to be back weekly but we'll do our best to keep Grammy in line. She is still knitting like crazy... nothing new there but in addition she's been busy with us.
Firstly, Mousie had her birthday... August 10th is her designated date and this year she turned 10 years young. She's such a precious little mischief. We love her and hope despite her many health challenges she'll be with us for a long while yet.
And I'm sure you all know that we lost our dear matriarch, Whiskers, 5 weeks ago. We do miss her terribly but are happy she isn't in pain anymore. Mousie is adjusting to life without her mummy... and has decided that Grammy is her new go-to for comfort, attention and cuddles. Grammy is over-the-moon happy about this - even when it means Mousie disturbs her sleep in the night for kisses and head butt or sits paws on her arm so she cannot knit. The old 'pay attention to me' trick and with that adorable face how can Grammy refuse? That's right. she cannot.
And since we are on the subject of Mousie... Well, she is now our eldest kitty and should take on the title of Matriarch of Mischief but she is so tiny and so frail the crown seems a little heavy for her head. She is happy to pass it on but to whom? Me? No thank you. I'm the youngest... and am not quite ready for it. So should it be passed to one of the boys... Patriarch of Mischief? Heaven forbid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe we ought to go to a democratic system. What do you think? Maybe we'll retire the 'ruler over all' society and just go with our group name... Mischief and Mayhem Central. Members all in equal standing/sitting/lying down... whatever position we are in.
Yes, I think that's it. Of course that makes for a problem when we come to a vote - 4 members / 4 votes / 2 girls / 2 boys. So.... what do we do to break a tie should there be one? Pass it to Grammy? *grimaces and groans all round*
What's that, Rondo?
You don't think we'll ever have fun again if Grammy makes the decisions?? Well, it hasn't stopped us in the past. Even when she squashed our plans we ignored her and went ahead with the mischief without her consent.
Etude? You have something to contribute?
We should rotate monthly as Group Leader - and during our tenure as GL we get 2 votes?
That sounds ominous - especially if you boys hang together... You'll outweigh us every time. Oh, what am I saying? You boys outweigh us anyway. In fact, you outweighed us when there were three girls and only two of you.
Well, I guess we'll have to toss this around for a while... but the day is moving on and Grammy wants to too. Yes, that infernal knitting!!!! Will it ever end? Not likely! But it keeps her happy and out of our hair when Mischief and Mayhem are on the menu.
Have a happy day, week.... dear friends... We are thrilled to be back.
P.S. And before we close .... Happy Birthday, Aunty Mommy Person, aka Aunty Maron, Virgin Islands.
Comments are welcome. Especially if they are funny, punny or just plain adorable.
