How to Spend a Holiday

Abby: Today is Veteran's Day, and we all had a very nice day here together at home. We have a few words of advice on how to spend holidays at home, which should be increasingly valuable over the next month or two.

First of all, it is important to play games with your family. As pictured below, today we engaged in at least one of our favorites, called Chase. Games should be played both before and after a good meal, although you may want to tone down your play-style after eating to something more moderate, to something such as Put the Toy Under the Newspaper and Get It.

Of course, if you really stuff yourself, you may just need to lounge and nap. I have selected Ms. C's desk as an excellent location for not only lounging and napping, but also for snoopervising anything exciting that the others may get into while I am in repose.

Stygia: Did we mention the importance of games? One of my favorites, and probably one of yours, too, is to Get those dangling objects. Ms. C has a shoelace that she runs around with and I love to chase. There are also some danglies coming from her bathrobe that she attempts to protect and we have to try to loosen. Fun Stuff!

Last but NOT LEAST, a big thank you to all of the Veterans out there. Your day should be every day.

That was very good advice about playing. We are a little past the age of wanting to play all the time, but we do like an occasional game. We also agree that every day should be Veteran's Day.

Veteran's day was scary. We live near downtown and there was a parade with REAL LIVE Planes flying over us and REAL LIVE guns going off and firecrackers and stuff. I'm glad the Massage Therapist was here for me to hide under!

Hey! I have tagged you for the 8 Random Things Me-me. It was fun and easy to do and I completely forgot to talk about my Catnip Addiction. Anyway, I hope you will consider doing it, as I'd love to learn more about you!

Nice! That is a great way to spend a holiday. I too like "Get the Dangly Thing" and "Hide it Under the Newspaper"

Those are fun.

You're right, Veteran's Day should be every day.

I'm glad you two are getting along better!
