*my sis used to call mom Old Bozo when she was a wee lass.
I told Frankie and Ernie about this..after they finished rolling on the floor BOLing
they said you must tell this to blogville. I consulted Mom... she replied there are no pictures.
It is only funny with pictures. Then she said out loud P I Z A P!!!
At 11:30 pm on Sunday night (1/24/16) we were all sleeping when all of a sudden Mom, who is a very light sleeper, heard the toilet in the 1/2 bath start "ghost" flushing. That normal means just a tad of water in the tank is seeping back into the bowl and a new flapper is needed. Mom was hoping it wouldn't happen again. She was almost asleep when swish.....there it goes a 2nd time. Dad was still snoring peacefully. (FYI: In 1988 he slept soundly as a Tornado passing over our street, another true story for another time). Within just a few minutes it happened a 3rd time. My sweet mom turned into a crazed *Old Bozo,hollering to the top of her lungs she sweetly asked Dad...DID you hear that? Dad replied what? Ohhhh was that the wrong reply!!?? Now it is nearly 1 am. Dad is up, mom is up and yours truly got up to what was the cause of the commotion. Lo and behold I saw Dad lying on floor trying to turn off the valve (red arrow) this diva decided it was time to snoopervise...(not). Well the valve was stuck...even WD40 would not loosen it. By now Old Bozo was at her wits end; however, for some reason she decided to flush it and for some reason it quit running. The humans went back to bed...
Remember no real photos only man I could find in Pizap was a man dressed to go to work. MOL MOL.
Although at 1 am Dad's facial expression was pretty much exactly like this
BUT THIS FELINE WAS WIDE AWAKE and for those who don't have the pleasure of sharing your home with a FELINE...when a feline is awake .....THE ENTIRE house is awake!!
I will not say the following is true or not true...
OLD BOZO here: trust me when I tell you Madi was up and down on the bed. Walking over my head, head butting my face, blowing puffs of sweet kitty breath in my ears, and purring at 25 decibels. Each time she landed on the bed with the thump of a baby elephant. Even though we all know she is very light on her feets!! Who knew an 11.8 lb cat could be so heavy. I finally had to put her in 'timeout' in another room! She was quite annoyed with this relocation!
I called the plumber the next day...I had him replace the flapper in all 3 bathrooms and check
them for any other problems.
THAT IS MY STORY AND I'M STICKING TO IT
Old Bozo, Old Gray Mare and sometimes just Mom
ONE other question why do these things like smoke alarm batteries dying and ghost flushing happen in the wee hours of the morning?
Our of the clear blue sky mom was surprised greatly when she
went to the mailbox last Thursday. She had a package from our
furiend Ramona...in Mississippi.
Lo and behold when she opened it she saw this
lovely and handy caddy for her coloring books and pencils.
Hey Mom I think Putter Jean, Ramona's kitty, left me a bit of smell mail right here.
Ramona originally made herself a caddy for storing all her polymer clay instruments, then
she thought it would also work for her friends who color!!
Mom was one of the most lucky friends to receive one.
Mom was over the moon gleeful. She has two sets of pencils and 2 coloring books
One set of the pencils came in a most aggravating hard plastic container (below) that would not say open!! Mom tried to get me to sit on it to keep it open...
Now all the pencils are in one convenient place!!
Mom jumped on the Coloring band wagon in December when Sis and BIL gave her
a coloring book and pencils. In January mom's bestie, Anita, gave her the Wild
Kingdom coloring book for her birthday.
Ramona is a most talented friend. Her artistic skills are limitless.
A year or so ago Mom commissioned Ramona to make a mosaic of Moi and asked if
she could include dogwood flowers and a ruby-throated humming bird....
This is the result of that request
Broken Bit Mosaics is the name of her blog...you can visit it by clicking here
RAMONA, A GREAT BIG THANK YOU FOR FOR THIS lovely surprise...
NOW I WON'T HEAR ANY MORE suggestions that I should sit on the pencil container!!
You know what they say, 'when mama is happy, everybuddy is happy"!
Sincerely Madi(son) D happy Cat
