Daily Photo Reprise: And then I gave up work for the day…2009

And then I gave up work for the day...

The first time I posted this photo was in 2009, and you may also recognize it as the photo at the footer of this site if you’re not in a reader.

It’s from 2009 when you-know-whos were twos! It’s also before I even began daily photos, but here is what I had to say then…

For now, enjoy somewhat over 50 pounds of black cat on one desk.

They are always doing something unique, that whimsical quartet of siblings, but sometimes they have the right idea. I really was tired, my eyes were strained, I was losing focus at the end of a long day, and one by one the three boys piled up trying to get their point across (we need dinner, you need to stop working), hence the multiple nap. Then Mewsette, the big sister, piled on top of all of them and began bathing them all in turn, causing things to start falling off my desk. Still, I could pile papers on top of them and keep working. When the paws and tails expanded onto my keyboard, I decided to take their advice and quit working for the day.

It’s Jelly Bean, then Mewsette on top of Giuseppe, then Mr. Sunshine.

I will point out on the middle left of the photo there is a tablet; underneath it are two mousepads and a binder. The tri-color trio, Cookie, Kelly and Peaches, had been hanging out on my keyboard shelf where I use my mouse, but it kept ending up on the floor so I gave in and began mousing on my desk. When these four joined the show, I just gave up.

  • I had not paid attention to the picture on the footer so I see this one for the first time! MOL! They did a good job, didn’t they?

    • Texas, lots of people us a feed reader or a mobile device and you can’t necessarily see the site features, but that one is a favorite!
