Finally Friday!

It's finally Friday, after a very exciting week. Think I'll have a scritch or two on the sidewalk to start the day.


The raccoons finally all got down. The Guy who's married to Mom said he saw two come down Wednesday night when he went to bed and he saw the other two come down Thursday morning when he was on his way to work. So, they all got down and went to where ever raccoons around here go to hang out. Mom's relieved that they are all safe and ok.

My human sister's wedding celebration picnic is tomorrow and Mom's just been going a bit crazy trying to help organize things. My human sister should be home today and then they have to go shop for food and other stuff. The Guy who lives here just left to buy some ice. Mom says she'll be glad when this is all over. (She's sort of a stress person, I told her to just go out and roll on the sidewalk for awhile and she'd feel better.)

The porch project is coming along, Mom and the Guy went to the wood store last weekend and bought big sticks of wood to finish the inside. The Guy wasted no time and had the wood all up in a couple days. He says he's getting too old for this construction stuff and he was a bit achy for a few days. But, it's nice, they have a few more pieces of wood to get and put around the windows and door. Then they'll paint. Mom told me already, no way was I going to be allowed to snoopervise the painting. She didn't want to have to clean wet paint off me. Here's some pictures of the work in progress.

C'mom you guys, I can't snoopervise if you won't let me out the door. I just gotta make sure you're doing a good job!

Let me try a different approach. I'll try getting in from the outside.

Well at least I can see more now, but it's kinda hard to do a real inspeckshun through glass.

Here's my chance! I'll just slip in quietly when they're not looking...

Oh, oh, the guy's yelling that I'm getting in the way and maybe I should just try to make an exit. Sheesh. Guess he just doesn't appreciate good help.

Well, here's what they got done. I think it looks pretty good. Can't wait until it's completely finished and all the mess and noise is done.

Everything looks great! You're a really good snoopervisor, Rusty (even if the workers can't appreciate it).

We laughed about your Mom rolling around on the sidewalk!
