Thursday Thirteen #2

Thirteen Things About Xmas in Florida:

1. There is no snow.

2. People compensate for that fact by putting fake snow around.

3. Fake snow at the base of palm trees looks stupid.

4. Santas dressed in surfer gear look like dirty old men.

5. The balmy weather allows for elaborate Christmas light displays. If a decoration can be
lit up and stuck on a lawn , it will be.

6. Inflatable snowmen and animated Santas are popular targets for thieves.

7. Their electrical cords are popular targets for possums and raccoons. "ZAP"

8. Baby Jesus has to be padlocked to his manger .

9. Xmas lights aren't taken down in January. Busy homeowners leave them up all year.

10. When a hurricane is coming those same homeowners forget about stocking up on
groceries and plywood. Instead, they run around removing their Xmas lights.

11. Being forced to listen to musical decorations 24 hours a day results in violence.

12. People actually give help to the less fortunate.

13. Peace, at least locally, seems possible.

Post #50 : Muffin's Musings

Wow! My fiftieth post. It's hard to believe that it's taken me over a year to reach this point, but
here I am. In celebration of my milestone I present some random musings:

1. Mommy decorated the house for Hanukkah. She put a blue shiny garland along the counter where the menorah was. She put cardboard stars and other shapes on the wall behind my bed.She thought they looked pretty.

2. I undecorated the house for Hanukkah. I couldn't reach the garland, but the stars and stuffwere only stuck to the walls with tape. I helped them fall onto the floor.I thought they looked pretty down there.

3. Mommy and a friend went to see the Gran Folklorico Ballet de Mexico. She's a big fan of the
company. They did dances fom Aztec, Mayan, Spanish and other cultures that combined to
create Mexico. She demonstrated some of the dances for Granny. It was fun till she collided with the coffee table....

4.Should Mommy change the name of my blog? "Fat Cat" is kind of insulting......

5. Should I post more often?

We Saw the Goodyear Blimp!

We saw the Goodyear blimp! One of the blimps is based in Pompano Beach, about an hour south of here. It flew in figure-eights around our neighborhood for two hours, scouting locations for two televised sporting events: a golf tournament and a marathon race.
The blimp was pretty. It was silver, with a blue nameplate that said "Goodyear" in yellow letters. When Mommy heard the chutt-chutt sound she knew what it was. She grabbed Midi and I and her camera and ran outside. She took a lot of pictures but her camera isn't very good.
Midi chutt-chutted rght back at the blimp. Maybe she thought it was a gigantic guinea pig. I got bored afer a while and stated chasing lizards, so Mommy took us back inside.
She was really impressed with the blimp. At least now I know what she's talking about when she calls me "Goodyear".
