Right Tool for the Job

The importance of providing the right tools for the job.  Maybe “use the right tool for the job” is a pretty tired cliche, but not for Mr. Bowie. It looks like he’s trying to break into the treats locker. What sharp little eyes you have, Mr. Bowie…

Meanwhile, the painters finished their job inside the house and we might get some peace and quiet here. Next week they will start outside painting the doors and windows.

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

 

Ten

Mr. B turns ten today. According to his cat years, it looks like he’s older and wiser than I am. A recent study in cognitive science pointed out that older cats have much more information in their brains than younger humans. Happy Birthday Mr. Bowie! Catnip and treats for all the furry ones all over the world. Let’s party!

Meanwhile, Mr. Bowie’s checking if the paint is dry by touching an inconspicuous area with his paw. If the paint is not tacky and feels dry to the paw touch, it is dry.

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

The Pop-up Cat

Come out, come out, wherever you are and meet the cat. Mr. Bowie loves to play hide-and-seek under the protection covers and blankets used by the painters. It looks like he enjoys their presence in the house, although he doesn’t like the sound of a sanding machine and a drilling machine. If all goes well, the painters will finish their work next week.

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

The Platform Cat

Me: “How is the new paint project going?” Mr. Bowie: “Right on track! I’m on top of it while you were having coffee and chocolates.” 

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

 

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.

94

Hooray! Today, some local officials, dressed in traditional folkloric costumes, payed tribute to my Dad because he’s still one of the oldest inhabitants of the village. This is a regular annual tradition. My father turned 94 a few days ago. As always, we had a small celebration with chocolates (of course) and coffee. Many happy returns, Dad!

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