Y’all are so full of questions in the comments. I love you guys. It’s also why I love Follow Up Friday, hosted by Jodi at Heart Like a Dog. She rocks the cat box, y’all.
Before jumping in, I have questions of my own for my American friends – did y’all have a good Thanksgiving? And did you go shopping this morning early? I pigged out on food I did not cook. My boy, Squatch, did nearly all of the cooking for Thanksgiving this year, including the turkey. It was amazing. He gets to do this every year. We’ll see how he does with Polish food at Christmas. And no, I didn’t shop this morning. In fact, I’m still in my PJs. And the chickens are picking the turkey carcass clean. 🙂
[quote align=”center” color=”#999999″]You really have to wonder how some of those cats got out of the bowls and such. I’d worry about suffocation! I am sure their people helped them but what if you aren’t home? What an odd impulse it is that makes them want to squeeze into such small spots.[/quote]
Taryn, we’ve always had cats and I’ve seen cats get into and out of tiny spaces. They do this weird turn around thing and just slither out naturally. I think it’s akin to their ability to twist midair and fall on their feet. Weird. But y’all feel free to weigh in if you’ve found the opposite to be true. I don’t think it’s an issue, though.
[quote align=”center” color=”#999999″]I always wondered how they get those costumes cleaned. Do they dry clean them?[/quote]
You’d think they’d dry clean them. I think that would cost way too much to make the rental cost effective, though. Dry cleaning big things is pricey. All I know is that some theater troupes clean costumes using a spray bottle with cheap vodka or white vinegar. It kills the bacteria that makes the smell, the bacteria in our sweat. Once it dries, there shouldn’t be any odor. We use white vinegar to get rid of stinky feet smell in shoes. Kills the bacteria and lets you wear the shoes longer. Sometimes, when it’s really bad, we’ll soak the shoes in white vinegar overnight.
Also regarding that turkey head, Jodi asks:
[quote align=”center” color=”#999999″]But pray tell….why did you put a reeking turkey head on?[/quote]
Photo opps are taken where ever I find them! I’m known as the Mamarazzi around these parts. Y’all know what I’m talking about, right? You snap a photo hoping to find a place to use it on the blog, hoping it will tell the story you want to tell. A picture is, indeed, worth a thousand words.
Mr. N, the Tenacious Little Terrier, asks:
[quote align=”center” color=”#999999″]Also did you know they make flea toys for dogs? Mr. N has one. If you don’t, I think you need one! [/quote]
Mr. N! I have one! It’s on my dresser! I wanted the key chain version, since I’d be able to clip it to my purse for photo opps everywhere I go, but the Hunny got me the 12″ plush instead. I love it, but am still keeping my eyes peeled for the key chain. I’ll have to put it on my wishlist.
One more question. Jackie, at Pooch Smooches, asks, regarding the location of the cow knee cap from Tuesday’s post:
[quote align=”center” color=”#999999″] I did not know that’s where the knee is, up there in what I call “the haunch”. I thought their knees were the backward bending joints lower done. Wonder what that joint is called? [/quote]
I was just as surprised as you to find that the knee cap is up in the haunch. Here’s what Suzy said when I asked about it:
[quote align=”center” color=”#999999″]The way the skeleton drawing is – it’s a little funky. But, all the butchers say that’s where it’s at. The knuckle is behind it. Kind of. It’s a skeleton so, it’s a little different for us. – we are used to hanging animals.[/quote]
How cool is that? And on that note, I let you all enjoy the rest of your weekend. Heh.
Until I write again …
