I Was Going to Write a Piece Today But Then I Got a Secret Rush Assignment, So Here’s a Cat Instead

What was the assignment? I can’t tell you, it’s secret! But it was fun and enjoyable and it was kind of neat to parachute into it at just about the last minute. And also, a picture of cats and toe beans is a win for everyone. Hope you had a fabulous Monday, folks.
Cicatrice says, “I believe the response to that is, ‘Oh…. look at those toe beans!'” (Assume the tone of voice is sticky-sweet.)
I’m sure it was actually a secret Rush assignment, where the remaining members needed your demo tape before they extend you an invite to join full time.
Now I have to listen to the State of the Union address.
I’ll take a picture of Spicy toe beans any day. They look delicious. And yes, that makes me a certifiable crazy cat lady. I own it.
Monday was an odd day. Austin, Texas was hit by an ice storm that knocked out power (including heat) to thousands of households. Our power went out Wednesday at 7 am and came back Sunday at 8:40 pm. Monday was spent replacing all the refrigerator/freezer foods, doing laundry and taking first shower since Tuesday. We were relatively lucky because full restoration could take until next Sunday.
Good news is that local Girl Scouts were selling cookies at the grocery store.
Aww, snoozy kitty.
My guess is that the construction crew at the new property invited him down to drive a bulldozer while the foreman was on lunch break.
