(I can't beleeve it's) Mancat Monday

Today, being Labor Day, we haf our annual "block party". Mom has been out der since 7 dis morning helping to set stuff up. Dad went out at 5 dis morning wif da man from across da street (his name is Paul but we call him Nan's dad) and put up da bloking thingies to close our street off so no one gets runded over. The man's are all out der in da street cooking good smelling stuff now...Sadie and I were out in our screen porch fur a little while but we gots hot. We'd rather stay in da air conditioned howse and let mom bring us food. Zippy is still sleeping. She got up and went out on her leash dis morning while dey were setting up but she kept laying down in da middle of everything so mom made her come in. All da food and tables and stuff are on da east end of da street, da west end is where all da games take place! Der is da water balloon catching game dat is always a hit wif kids and adults alike! Da nefew filled close to 700 balloons dis year, dat is a lot of balloons! Dis is da last big nayborhood bash outside cuz da kid beans all go back to school tomoro. Well, gotta go. I see dey is serving up da food and we hasta go stand in da front window and look pathetik so we gets our fair share.
Woohoo, my sifur Sadie is Kat's Cat of da Day! She'll be happy bout dat once she wakes up hehehee. Eating all dat good stuff made us all kinda sleepy....

I wish we had a block party. That sounds so cool with lots of yummy food to beg for. It's too hot here (112 agin yesterday!). But I gotta go back outside anyways if they let me. A mancat's gotta do what a mancat's gotta do.

The block party sounds like a lot of fun! Having your mom bring you food sounds like a fabulous idea! You have Goa'uld glowing eyes in your photo, Speedy, I hope you haven't been taken over!

A block party sounds like lots of fun! We never have parties where I live. I live on a cul-de-sac.

A block party does sound like fun! We don't have them here, though. If there are niptinis at the party, I hope your mom brings you some, *giggle*!

Happy Mancat Monday, my friend!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

If the beans are going to play in the street, blocking it off sounds like a good plan. Have a great mancat Monday, dude.
Purrrrrs,

We never have parties on our street. The neighbors are too snooty, and the ones that aren't are strange.. like the man next door.

We are so glad that your mommie and dad are having a wonderful Labor Day. Mommie says that just knowing your beans are having a good time makes her Labor Day a happy one.

Speedy, you are one handsome mancat!

Jimmy Joe said...

Wow, that sounds like fun! I like meeting neighbors. We don't have any parties going on in our apartment neighborhood today. Momma has to work today, too. She said grad students don't labor--they just slave. (make sure to get some hamburgers!)
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Henry Helton said...

700 balloons?! Wow. I was excited to hear that. I was thinking that balloons were made of plastic and I could chew on them. My Lady told me they are made of some kinda rubber. I'm not very excited now.
