Glogirly and the Three Bears - Two Years Later

Today's blog post is from two years ago...the day our big and furry "neighbors" paid us a surprise visit. We haven't seen them since, which in some ways may be a good thing! Enjoy the photos of our neighborhood WILDlife!

WAFFLES:  Uh, Boss? I think we've got some new neighbors. 

KATIE:  What do you mean? I don't see any new neighbors.

WAFFLES:   I think you better come over here, Boss. They look kind of like Glogirly's teddy bear, except bigger. Like WAY bigger.

The Three Bears
The internet exploded when we posted these photos  late one evening two years ago. Glogirly was minding her own business, Netflixing on the living room sofa, when she heard Waffles chattering over by the kitchen window. She craned her neck up and looked over the back of the sofa, ready to tell him to stop opening up the cupboard doors again, when she saw THREE bears RIGHT outside the dining room window. And when we say right outside the window, we mean it. They were less than 6 feet from the glass.

A momma black bear and her two cubs were chomping away on what used to be bountiful, wild raspberry bushes. One of the cubs was attempting to swing from the empty hummingbird feeder. 

Always ready for Katie and Waffles to do something cute, Glogirly had her camera within reach and was ready. In between hyperventilating, and numerous "OMGs," she managed to snap off a few photos. Don't worry, they were all taken from the indoor safety of the dining room and kitchen windows. 

It was quite a sight! None of us have ever seen anything like this before. After they left, everyone was a little unnerved. There was lots of pacing and looking out the windows. 

Later in the evening, in an unprecedented display of, well... sheer madness– Katie and Waffles both slept right by Glogirly's side ALL night.

The Snow That Knocked Out the Internet

WAFFLES:  BOSS!!! The interwebs are broken! How am I going to Facebook with my girlfriends???

KATIE:  Don't know. Don't care. 

WAFFLES:  Did the snow break the internet, Boss? 

KATIE:  That's what they're saying.

WAFFLES:  So then the snow better hurry up and fix it. 

KATIE:  Yeah, it doesn't quite work that way, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  Well that's messed up. 

KATIE:  Perhaps you should just relax and do what cats do best.

WAFFLES:  How can I relax without my interwebs? And my girlfriends???

Whaddya MEAN Our Interwebs Are Broken?
Today's blog post is coming to you live from Glogirly's Jeep, parked at the bus station where she's picking up a cat lady friend that's coming to visit for the weekend. She's using her phone as a hotspot so she can connect while she waits.

Why? Well, the short answer is because we had a big snowstorm that knocked out the internet. When it came back on earlier today, Glogirly's modem somehow restored itself to the original factory settings which really messed up our network and has made it impossible to connect. 

Fortunately, our visiting cat lady is way more techie than Glogirly and assures us that she'll have us up and running in no time. 

In the meantime, Waffles waits.

WAFFLES:  *sigh*

Pre-Storm Sunbathing

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, are you using that sun puddle?

KATIE:  Does it look like I'm using this sun puddle, Waffles?

WAFFLES:  Wanna trade places?

KATIE:  And leave my sun puddle???

WAFFLES:  But my sun puddle is in the shade. 

KATIE:  Exactly.

WAFFLES:  So, does that mean yes? You'll trade with me?

KATIE:  Zzzzzz...

WAFFLES:  Ok, so how about we share this sun puddle instead?

KATIE:  Purr-sonal space, Waffles. You're getting awfully close. Hey, look! There's a new sun puddle way over there on the other side of the kitchen. You should grab it while you can.  

WAFFLES:  Wait! Where's it going?

KATIE:  It's Colorado, Waffles. One minute we've got sun puddles and the next we've got a blizzard.

Katie is right. One minute we're wearing t-shirts and sandals and the next we're looking for our snow boots. Our first snow is due to hit Colorado Thursday. It will probably only snow about 6" or so, but since it's the first of the season, the meteorologists are acting like it's the armageddon.

The weekend promises warmer temps and lots of sunshine though. So whatever snow does fall on Thursday, won't be around very long. Just long enough to be beautiful!

In the meantime, we're soaking up as much sun as we can!
