Caturday: Blanket forts and lazy beasts

This has been a rather awful week in the news. Planes and Journalists have not fared well. Our condolences to all. 🙁

In other news, the Golden Gate Bridge is closed until Monday morning. It’s sad for the tourists and a pain in the posterior for commuters, but it’s needed. They’re installing a moveable median barrier to separate the north and southbound lanes. The barrier is needed to prevent head on collisions. There have been many and with more and more people driving while using cell phones, it’s even more necessary. It’s the first closure in more than 25 years and the longest closure in bridge history.

Last week it was boxes. This week it’s blanket forts. If we’re on the bed watching tv or reading, soon will come a paw digging at the blankets. They don’t care if we’re in the middle of a heatwave. They want UNDER the blanket.

Titanescu is NOT in the blanket fort. This week he's perfecting his drooling. Yes, that white speck on his lip is drool.

And now here’s a beautiful and sweet story about a boy and his dog. It’s a two-hanky story at the very least, but it will leave you smiling.

  1. Sigh… 🙁

    It’s so sad to think that the only way to fix the problem of misusing cellphones requires a major engineering fix for bridge infastructure. Reminds me of just how much I detest cellphones… Still don’t carry mine most days… much to Carolyn’s exasperated annoyance at my “irrational” dislike of modern mobile telecomunications tech. She can’t seem to live without hers. Bugs her to no ends not to be able to text or phone me at a moments notice.

    Ahhhh… the blankie fort!! Some mornings, when my sweetie has gone off to work but I’m playing lazy butt on my day off, Ting-ting will sneak into bed to cuddle and play in the blankies with me. Always fun. 🙂

    1. I have a good smartphone and it’s great for taking photos. When we go out, I turn it to silent mode. I don’t have the urge to check it every five minutes either. 🙂 Cell phones weren’t the only problem on the bridge. It’s a major tourist attraction, so there’s a lot of distracted drivers even without phones being involved. The change was really needed. Of course, the first morning the bridge was open, there was a 6 car pileup. No major injuries and no head on collision.
