Nothing Lasts Forever


Keep your face to the sun. Why do you look so angry, Mr. Bowie? It’s not my fault that the Indian summer is coming to an end this week and rain is heading our way. Nothing lasts forever. Forever is a lie. But things will get better, even rain does not last forever. Simply enjoy this moment, my friend.

PS: As you know by now, catnip’s potency doesn’t last forever. The catnip “high” lasts only about 15 minutes. Nothing lasts forever. Hey, Mr. Bowie, “We cool?”

  1. If a catnip high only lasts a short time, you’d better have a good supply! I remember you don’t like cold weather and neither does Mr. Bowie. MaChatte soon won’t want to go out any more cos her feet get cold on the ground. Drink more espresso, Herman. That fixes everything, doesn’t it?

  2. Mom says that she didn’t realize that nip wore off so quickly. Sorry Mr. B. about the change of seasons. We didn’t even get an Indian Summer this year. It is already way cooler than usual. Enjoy the sunshine while you can. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • Thank you, my friends. Oh no… it just started to rain! This means extra nip for Mr. Bowie…

      PS: The effects of Colombian catnip can last from thirty minutes to an hour… 😉

  3. Our indian summer is just starting — yesterday and today have been beautiful, warm and sunny without a cloud in the sky either day. The International Balloon Fiesta started today, but if any balloons flew this morning they went south, because I didn’t see a single balloon. Maybe tomorrow.

  4. We’re having a warm spell here. It was 85 and sunny today, but I know that won’t last long…. Hang in there, Herman and Mr. Bowie! Spring will be here before we all know it! 🙂

  5. Mr. Bowie, as you and I and my cat Moshu know best….. catnip doesn’t always do the justice…there gotta be a different flavor in the house! It’s name is … ice cream….!!! Ask your fellow, Herman, he should know better!!! And just in case it won’t last for whatever minutes, you better ask for refill…s …!! Any good owner has some more in the … know where…..

  6. “Happy” is where we find it…..catnip, espresso, dark chocolate, fires in the fireplace – but I agree that it’s almost ALWAYS found in warm weather so we’ll all just wish it returns QUICKLY. This morning in Virginia it’s 35 degrees…..a long way from warm.

  7. We live in a four season area and dark, dark chocolate helps all year long. Keep a good supply on hand, along with the catnip and…spring will come again.

  8. Oh dear, what goes up, must come down. Poor Mr Bowie, a catnip hangover is such a bummer. I recommend a little roll around on the brick walk. Nothing like a lovely back scratch to put a smile back on your face. xo Boomdee

  9. It looks as though Mr. Bowie knows the bricks will be cold and icy all too soon. I get the same sort of face when someone finds they can’t sit in the windowsill and smell the outside through the screen any more because I have closed the inside window against the cold.

    • Hi there, SunsetDragon. Welcome on HoB. Thank you for visiting and following the blog. Much appreciated! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”
