Just to Clear Things Up

As talented as that cat 'o mine is, he did NOT send flowers! The photo shows him merely inspecting them to make sure they are of a certain quality (they are). It's the-guy-who-knows-a-song-about-a-chicken who sent the flowers!

The cat is very talented at weighing himself and imitating a water bottle. He also has incredible aim when it comes to tossing various objects into the toilet. But as of yet he has no access to a credit card and has not ordered me any flowers.

This photo is just to prove that as ugly as Houston is, it still has its moments (I mean besides the fact that it's 63 degrees out at 10:00 at night in February). I took this while driving to work the other day. I should have stopped the car, I imagine, so it wouldn't have come out so crooked:

So anyway, one more happy Valentine's day and remember, don't give your cat access to your credit card! It's sure fire trouble if you do!

I was going to mention that Crooked Sunset would be an awesome album title, but then I remembered Crooked Rain-Crooked Rain by Pavement.

Boy, do I hate Pavement more than ever now. Grrrr.

Roger said...

Very nice Sunset Jill, but not as nice as you! Happy Valentines!! :D

Jeffrey Thames King of Grief - It would, wouldn't it? Ok, I give up - why do you hate pavement now? BTW, if I happen to run into you on pledge drive, do you go by something shorter or are you Jeffrey-Thames-King-of-Grief in real life too? Can't remember if I signed up for a Tuesday shift or not!

Roger - Thanks! (How do you make that little blushing smilie?) You're so nice too! :-)

Happy Val day +1 day :)

Well I guess I am smarter than your cat - not that I sent you flowers either - I know to use a credit card.

That is a great shot. Doesn't matter if its crooked. I actually thought it had something to do with the landscape rather than your hand.

Houston looks beautiful!

Jess said...

Beautiful photo!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Thanks SJ!!!! I mean for the happy valentines day...not for you & the cat being in cahoots not to send me flowers!!!!!

Urban Thought - Yeah it didn't come out half bad for a photo I took WHILE driving! After the 37th "drat" my daughter thought maybe I should hand the camera to someone who WASN'T driving, but as usual the first shot was the best...

Alf - I moved here from Vermont, so I still tend to think of Houston as incredibly ugly, but y'know...I make do. :-)

Jess - Thanks!

Gorgeous cat, scrummy looking man and pretty flowers...what more could a woman want? wait...on second thought...don't answer that!!!!!!

Ingrid said...

I would rather your cat get my credit card than my SO. Something tells me cats aren't too concerned with flat screen TVs and Playstation 3.

Gorgeous pic!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

DJ Kirkby - I guess Scrummy is a positive attribute then?!?! :-) :-) :-)

Ingrid - I dunno, those big orders of cat food can add up!

jp said...

Good advice, Jill! Now that Lily is ringing a bell, who knows what might happen next! :-) Beautiful photo, BTW.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

JP - Yeah, if she can ring a bell I'm pretty sure she should be able to punch in a credit card number! :-0 :-0 :-0

Bastet said...

I like the crooked sunset! And your cat isn't the only one with access to a credit card...evil kitty's!
