Smudge Blesses the Travel Shirts

“Oh, you’re going away? Here, let me make sure you have enough cat hair for the duration.” Such a giving kitten, Smudge is.
In other news, I’m off for another JoCo Cruise, so don’t expect to see too much here in the next week or so, since I don’t anticipate having a whole lot of Internet connectivity, and even less interest in knowing what’s going on in the outside world. Don’t worry about the cats, we have a full-time house sitter, who understands their primary role is to let cats in and out of the house.
If I don’t post again for a while, please enjoy your week (and change). I’ll be back soon enough with tales of the Caribbean, I’m sure.
Smudge merely knows one of his prime duties. Have a lovely voyage.
Have fun, John. Just remember a boat can go on a ship, but a ship can’t go on a boat.
“Of course I’m blessing the shirts! Who knows what perils you may face out there – krakens, Twilight fans, deadites! We have to keep you *safe, monkey!”
Forget work, internet, etc. and have a great trip!
Be safe and have a wonderful, relaxing, restorative vacation! (And thank you, Master Smudge, for sending your person off on vacation with appropriately blessed garments – surely that will keep him safe so he will return and give you fishes.)
Enjoy your trip! Snuggle the kitties before you go and have a wonderful, relaxing holiday from the world. We look forward to your stories when you’re back!
I have that exact same pineapple shirt! I bought it from a Kohl’s by the side of a highway in rural Pennsylvania to wear to a wedding the next day. Delighted that we have similar taste in formal wear.
Smudge look very adolescent. Pretty soon he’ll be driving.
Sigh… SOME day we’ll make it on a JoCo cruise – for now we are hampered by the kids’ school vacation schedules. Have a wonderful trip!! (also, those shirts are excellent choices for cruisewear…)
@Colonel Snuggledorf: And the Cat said, “Lo, for I shall bless these shirts, that they may be a Sign to all who observe them, and He-of-the-opposable-thumbs shall surely return safely with many new fishes for me.”

umm, hope y'all don't have coyotes thereabouts. waay too many lurck, most places, even in town. task house-sitters to guard duty outdoors? # just say'n
siggy: "don't worry, captain hammer will save us"
Have fun and enjoy the weather!
My cat Murphy usually likes to pre-bless the inside of the suitcase before the clothing goes in. Different strokes, I guess.
did he get into the suitcase, too?

My lady had a fridge magnet that said said that no outfit was complete without a few cat hairs.
Wear them with pride. Those that are in the know are your friends. The rest are strangers with friendly smiles.
