Long Weekend

Yes, we are having a long weekend here in the Realm.  The PM just had her anniversary and earned some more vacation time, so she decided to take off Monday and Tuesday.  She has been very fatigued and she hopes to both rest and catch up on some things around the house.

She also requested the time off for the High Holidays next month.  All three days fall on business days this year. 

We are not sure exactly what all we will do, but will keep you updated.  Sir Spitfire's appt has been postponed until he recovers from his own traumatic event.

Upon reading Sir Ambassador Scout Ringo's biography, Sir Spitfire has requested an appointment.  Sir Spitfire is hereby notified that the meeting will take place on Thursday afternoon and is hereby commanded to teleport over to the Annex at said time of 1pm.  Sir Spitfire should also send agenda via UPS prior to that for the Ambassador's review.

Lazy Day

We had a very lazy day today; the first one in quite a while what with trips to MS and photography outings by the PM and Ringo.  The Mommeh basically stayed in her chair all day, except for when she took a nap in bed.  Oh, well, better than being abandoned during diplomatic sorties.

The PM and Ringo do report a lot of diplomatic negotiations with various birds.  They say that some birds are my sized and I would really enjoy them.  They say others are big enough to eat me.  I'd just as soon leave any diplomacy up to them if that is the case!

Here is one they think I would like:

They tell me they don't think I would like this one; they also worry it would carry me away:

It does look pretty fierce.  But I think the first one may make a good 'pet', don't you?  After all, Daisy and Harley have Bert and Ernie.....

Ringo's biography

Little is known about Sir Ambassador Scout Ringo's childhood and early life.

The PM met Ringo the Racoon  the night she went to vote in the last Presidential elections.  Ringo was cunningly posed on top a parking meter; when he was still there a couple of hours later, the PM took him home and introduced him to the Princess.

Ringo related that he was skilled at acrobatics and had run away from his family in the woods to join the circus.  However, he had not been able to catch up with any of the circusses as they came through town and was unsure if he really wanted to any more.

Ringo at first served as Scout.  His first job was to help develop disaster planning; it was hoped the use of the dreaded automobile could be prevented by proper planning.  While this did not work out, as he worked with the PM on planning, she noted his skills at interacting with individuals from a variety of species and backgrounds.  He also was very sharp at noting environmental issues and navigated well.  Due to his talent at same, he was promoted to Sir Scout Ringo.

Later, the Princess decided he should be offered an ambassadorship.  Ringo then made the epic journey to Utah to treaty with Lady Scamper and Sir George (Ret) of the equine species.  The mission was successful; Ringo even survived encounters with wolves and scorpions; such adventures have become the stuff of legend.

Since that time, Ringo has served as primary diplomatic liason to the Realm of Capital Drive.  He goes out on all reconnaisance missions and treaty negotiations with the PM or individually, as ordered by the Princess.

Thank you

Thank you to everyone who took time to let us know they care. We feel better now.  And since we read much more than we comment, we really can't complain.

The PM and Ringo have stayed busy with photography this weekend.  Since she got the new camera, the PM has been terribly excited about the pictures she has taken of different things.  It is good to see her so happy about something. 

Here is another picture of me for your Sunday pleasure; tasting a tribute:

Feeling Better

Thank you for all the comments today after we told you how sad we were.  It brightened our day!  And we feel much better!

Nobody loves us

At least we don't think so, because we've not had one response to our last three posts.  We're sad here in the Realm.

Tomorrow is our neice Nicole's birthday.  She will be 9 years old.  I have not met  her yet, but the PM has always said Nic-Nac is the 'most perfect baby in the world'.  She studies martial arts, ice skating and ballet.  She loves macaroni and cheese and pizza.  In fact, she loves pizza so much, she is only allowed to have it once or twice a week.  Otherwise she would not eat anything else.  She is going to overnight camp for the first time this summer.

Happy birthday, Nicole!
