Man/Cat At Work

It’s oh so quiet… I have noticed nothing much is happening on HoB. But I’m still very busy and helping a crew is always fun. I’m giving my house and recording studio a complete makeover. The studio was rewired and got new furniture and equipment. All the (6m high) walls , ceilings and doors will be painted in colours based on black and two grey colours.

These are exciting times for Mr. Bowie. It’s a big challenge of supervising the painters and becoming friendly with them.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

  1. The whole place will match Mr. Bowie’s color, that’s neat. No wonder he’s brave enough to go up there to supervise the crew. No stepping in wet paint! Good luck with all the work, Herman. Enjoy beautiful weather, I hope.

    • Mr. Bowie was a bit nervous the first days but now he enjoys checking out the ladders, stands and shelves, especially in high places.
      Wishing you a great weekend, Tim!

  2. Oh how exciting! It appears Mr. Bowie is doing a grand job of snoopervising. Can’t wait to see the “finished product”. Always lots of fun to get a new look/atmosphere. So good to hear from you Herman.

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

    • Hi Pam. Mr. Bowie loves to check out all the tools of the painters. The first days he was a bit nervous but now he enjoys the company.

      Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Pam!

    • Ik denk elke dag aan Sis tijdens de werken. Ik denk dat zij hier elke dag zou komen kijken, vol bewondering en verbazing, en dan espresso’s drinken.
      En ze zou super-blij geweest zijn met de leuning aan de trap! 😉

  3. Oh boy, look at you Mr. B. We are having an addition put on our house, and our parents are in a tizzy. It has been one problem after another. Hope yours is going better. Nice to see you.

  4. Mr. B. must be in cat heaven having the opportunity to wander on the rafters! Watch out or he will insist you create a “Stairway to Heaven”, so to speak, a way to get up there once the painters are through.

    • Hi Doug. I’ll have to lock up Mr. Bowie when the stairway to Heaven is painted… 😉
      Have a great weekend, my friend!

    • Hi Angela. Mr. Bowie is having a great time in his new playground. But I have to keep him away from the fresh painted places… 😉
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

    • Thank goodness Mr. Bowie keeps an eye on the progress of the work… 😉
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  5. Mr. Bowie looks like he is enjoying his job very much, Herman! I hope you will show readers photos of the studio when it is finished.

    Mr. Nano and crew send their regards to you both. Nano has recovered nicely from his dental surgery earlier this year and feels much better now. Miss Abby just turned 17 years old. She is still getting around well, although she sleeps more these days.

    • Hi Lavinia. Mr. Bowie is having a great time in his new playground. The first days he was a bit nervous but now he enjoys the company. I’ll probably post some photographs of the end result next weeks.

      Glad to see Mr. Nano and Miss Abby are doing great! Mr. Bowie turns 10 in May. He says “Meow!” and sends his regards to all the cats and crew of the farm.

      Wishing you a wonderful weekend, my dear friend!

    • Thank you so much for your kind comment, my friend. Glad you liked the black & white photographs. Most of the time I prefer B&W above coloured photographs.

      Glad to see that spring has finally arrived in the North after a long, cold and dark winter. Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  6. Wow ! A studio makeover sounds exciting! Do share photo’s when you’ve got it all to yourself again 😀 If Mr Bowie is like my cats, he’s not that keen on all the hammering and extra activity. Hang in there Mr Bowie (even in the rafters, ha). Hopefully they will be quick (but meticulous) workers! xB

    • Hi Boomdee. In the beginning Mr. Bowie was very nervous, especially when they were installing new ventilation channels. But after a few weeks he got used to the presence of the painter.
      I’ll post some more photographs over a few weeks or later next month.

      Hope you’re having a great weekend, my friend!

  7. You two have been busy! I see Mr. Bowie has additional responsibilities as a supervisor. Is it his idea to use the grey shades? 😉 Excellent choice, Mr. Bowie! You know everything about elegance ❤

    • Thank you so much for your kind comment. Let’s hope I can still see and find Mr. Bowie when everything is painted grey… 😉
      Hope you’re having a great weekend!

    • Hi Mary. He can always get up there via the stairways. Once in a while he likes to check out the living room from the view up there…
      Hope you’re having a great day, my dear friend!

  8. Very nice getting a make-over for your studio. We see sweet Mr. Bowie has found the perfect spot to supervise all the work going on. Hugs and nose kisses from Chancy and me.

    • Hi Mags. The painters know they have to deliver a good result because Mr. Bowie is keeping an eye on them…
      Hope you’re having a great day, my dear friend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards to Chancy!
