MONDAY – DAY 189: It’s the second week of July and regular summer temperatures have returned to West Walnut Manor … 93F at High Noon with a somewhat hazy sun. I really should do laundry today,  but after checking the underwear and sock drawers I realized I’m good for another two weeks. I think that is the criteria most single gentlemen use to determine when to do laundry. I’m also going to wait until the sun goes down before mowing the front lawn.

Went to dinner last evening with my brother and his family. My sister-in-law made the best melt-in your-mouth pulled pork ever with sautéed peppers and onions, fried corn and baked mac and cheese — something from each of the basic comfort food categories. Loved it all!! Also realized that the cacophony of a five-year old at play can be mind melting after a couple of hours. I actually love kids … especially when I can hand them a quarter and invite them to play in another room.

When my brother came to pick me up, Mlle. Renee was at her fawning happy face worst when she saw her Uncle Jimmy. I never saw a dog get more excited about seeing someone. Guess she thought he was there to take her for a ride. She likes going for rides, until she realizes that she’s really going to visit her vet lady.


I did an origami cat a couple of months ago from another source. It was one of the weekends when the calendar failed of offer a folding project.DSCF0457 I made it an oriental cat by using a Chinese folding paper. For today’s cat I going for a more ordinary everyday cat.DSCF0459

Because I wanted the cat to have a bit more personality, I altered some of the folding steps a little bit. Tomorrow, I finish up by folding the cat’s body.  Think I’ll call him Tom.

MONDAY FUN TIME EXTRA:  GROANER ALERT ! Here’s the Mensa Puzzle Calendar for today. I thought this one might be punny.DSCF0461

Then again, it could just be dumb ~
