A happy day for me! I am back to being a real employee (part-time), I learned that Bassman as well as other family members will be coming to visit, and I received my first check ever from my blog ads! By that reckoning, I am now a PROFESSIONAL WRITER! Okay, maybe it is only in my mind, but I'll take it!

With all that good news, the household had to celebrate.

Comet and C. Dog each got chewies (rawhides). Comet wound up intimidating Cruella into giving hers up. Last I saw, Comet was lying atop a mountain of treats, growling at anyone who dared to even breathe in her direction (note the one behind her front foot).

For the cats, nothing but fresh from the garden catnip would do.

Ziggy and Cupid tore right into it. Ziggy's method involved laying in the middle of the pile attempting to keep it covered with her claws at all times.

Cupid had a bit more finesse. She delicately nibbled on a tiny switch.

For my part of the celebration, I took my entire 'paycheck' and bought flower and vegetable plants for my garden. The instant I arrived home from the nursery, it began raining (what does partly cloudy mean Mr. Weatherman?).

But that is okay. Because on a day like today there is no way I am going to let a little thing like rain bother me!

You have really ruined C-dogs could claim she was fierce and vicious but tell it like it is.

CONGRATS!! Your ads finally paid off!
