Strange Bedfellows

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, are you sleeping?

KATIE:  I was.

WAFFLES:  What's Gloman going to say if he sees us sleeping together?

KATIE:  Frankly, you should be more concerned about what I'LL say.

WAFFLES:  Who's Frank?

WAFFLES:  Here he comes! Act natural, Boss.

About Today's Photos
When Glogirly woke up the other morning, she couldn't believe her eyes. Both Waffles AND Katie were sleeping soundly side by side, next to her in bed. She actually texted Gloman who was in the living room to tell him he should sneak into the bedroom to take a look. He did. And of course, he grabbed his camera on the way.

Because without photographic evidence, it never happened.

More than Monday

WAFFLES:  What are you doing up there, Boss? Did Glogirly forget to put away some food? 

KATIE:  No, Waffles. I'm just thinking about what today means.

WAFFLES:  It's Monday, Boss. That means....well, it's Monday. And tomorrow is Tuesday–

KATIE:  It's Memorial Day, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  So it's not Monday? 

KATIE:  Well technically it is Monday. But it's also Memorial Day. 

WAFFLES:  Oh, you mean like parties and barbecues and FRIED CHICKEN Memorial Day! Too bad we're not supposed to have parties and stuff on account of the corona-thing.

KATIE:  Memorial Day is much more than barbecues and fried chicken, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  More than fried chicken? Are you sure???

KATIE:  It's a day of remembrance, Waffles. To honor and thank those we've loved and those we've lost. 

WAFFLES:  Don't worry, Boss. I'm not lost. I'm right here. 

Memorial Day Gratitude
We're pausing this Memorial Day to remember the people we love and say thank you. Friends, family, teachers, soldiers...some we've known our whole lives. They've touched our hearts and helped shape who we are. Some remain anonymous, having given so much, so selflessly, for this beautiful country we call home.

For us, Memorial Day serves as a reminder to honor those who we miss as well as those who continue to inspire us and love us unconditionally.

My Chair is NOT Your Chair

KATIE:  What.

WAFFLES:  What??

KATIE:  What are you doing in my chair, Waffles?

WAFFLES:  Since when is my chair your chair, Boss.

KATIE:  Since forever. 

WAFFLES:  Forever is a really long time, Boss. Are you sure it's not since like yesterday? 

KATIE:  Forever or just yesterday, you're still sitting in my chair.

About Today's Photos
Those of you who've been with us from the beginning, or even just a few years for that matter, know all too well that Waffles and Katie's relationship is somewhat complicated. Katie still longs for the days when she was an only cat. Waffles, on the other hand, wants nothing more than to be Katie's BFF. 

They're definitely not the kind of cat buddies that snuggle together, grooming one another though. That's just never going to happen.

So when Gloman and Glogirly discovered them sitting TOGETHER in the SAME chair, they ran for their cameras and started shooting. Because if there wasn't any photographic proof, it never happened.

Cat Mom's Day Quarantine

KATIE:  How come you're not wearing your mask on Glogirly's t-shirt, Waffles?

WAFFLES:  How come you ARE wearing a mask on her t-shirt, Boss?

KATIE:  Well at least I'm not playing with it like a cat toy. What if Glogirly did that with her mask when she went to the grocery store?

WAFFLES:  Yeah, but it's way more fun to play with her mask than it is to wear it.

KATIE:  That's not the point, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  Since when is having fun not the point?

KATIE:  Since when? Since you dragged her mask into the litter box with you.

WAFFLES:  Is that wrong? 

KATIE:  Help me, Glogirly. Please.

Happy Cat Mom's Day!

Glogirly's new custom t-shirt arrived just in time for Mother's Day. It's not often she buys something she found on Facebook, but when she clicked on this t-shirt and found it could be purr-sonalized, she decided to give it a whirl. When she realized the orange cat was flinging his mask up in the air, she HAD to have it.

We're sending our deepest love and gratitude to all the moms out there. Glogirly carries her love for her mom in her heart each and every day. 💕

The Masked Cat Girl

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, Glogirly's hiding behind her mask, but I can totally see her.

KATIE:  She's not hiding, Waffles. She's practicing social distancing and wearing her new cat mask. 

WAFFLES:  CAT mask? Like for CATS???

KATIE:  It's got cats ON it, Waffles. It's not for cats to WEAR. 

WAFFLES:  Maybe I want to wear a mask. Maybe YOU should wear a mask, Boss. It's got your colors and stuff.

KATIE:  Maybe you should just stick to practicing social distancing and stay six feet away from me. Preferably at all times.

WAFFLES:  But how am I going to share breakfast with you? And dinner? 

KATIE:  How about you stick to eating out of your OWN dish, Waffles? You know, the dish that's six feet AWAY from my dish. 

WAFFLES:  But breakfast always tastes better out of your dish, Boss.

Glogirly's New Mask
In Colorado, just as in most states, our governor is encouraging residents to wear a mask whenever they leave home. So of course, Glogirly didn't want just any mask...she had to have a cat-themed mask. Lucky for her, she's got a talented friend that made this mask for her. Because if left to her own devices, Glogirly would be forced to cobble something together with hot glue and rubber bands.

Waffles' Window Whiffies

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, it's time for spring window whiffies!

KATIE:  Window whatties???

WAFFLES:  Whiffies, Boss. Whiffies! 

KATIE:  Waffles, are you talking with your tongue stuck between your teeth again?

"Spring" Time in the Mountains
It's the time of year in Colorado when all four seasons can descend upon us in just a single day. While we still have some snow on the ground, at least in spots where the sun hasn't gotten to it yet, it's warm enough to open up the windows. That is until it starts snowing those tiny little pellets that look like the filling inside a bean bag chair. No worries though, all we have to do is wait another 15 minutes and it will change again.

Glogirly has worn everything from t-shirts and sandals to boots and mittens outside in the past week. Never a dull moment.

Gloman is still here with us while he continues to work from home. ...and binge-watch all that Amazon Prime and Netflix has to offer. We're very lucky to be sheltering in place in such a beautiful place. And we're very lucky to all be together.

Stay safe, friends. And if you can, enjoy some springtime window whiffies.

Working Out With Waffles

WAFFLES:  If Glogirly's supposed to be rowing this thing, it sure doesn't look like a boat. 

WAFFLES:  Doesn't smell like a boat either. 

WAFFLES:  No water, no boat. What a ripoff.

KATIE:  It's a rowing machine, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  You mean like a boat?

KATIE:  Like a rowing machine. 

WAFFLES:  Like a boat machine?

KATIE:  Like a ROWING MACHINE. You know, for working out. 

WAFFLES:  I don't know why she doesn't just run around the house doing zoomies. That's how I work out. She just sits on that machine thing pulling a big handle back and forth, back and forth. 

KATIE:  Yeah, well this is my idea of working out. 

Sheltering & Working Out at Home
Fortunately, when we moved to Colorado Glogirly realized that going to a gym was not going to ever be in the cards. Just driving down our canyon roads to the grocery store is a commitment, so finding a gym just isn't practical. Over the years she's been accumulating a few pieces of workout equipment though and has set up our own gym right here at home.

And now that gyms and fitness centers across the country are closed, she's more grateful than ever to have her own space. Of course, the trick is to actually USE it! LOL!

Waffles and Katie will often join her.

While Katie prefers lounging on the rug or finding a sun puddle, Waffles seems to be far more curious about the whole exercising ritual.

Easter Fairies, Tooth Bunnies, & a Very Special Holiday Concert of Hope

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss!  Did the Easter Bunny leave you a quarter under your pillow yesterday?

KATIE:  No, Waffles. That's the Tooth Fairy.

WAFFLES:  Whoa! The Easter Bunny left you TEETH? 

KATIE:  No, Waffles. The Easter Bunny brings eggs and the Tooth–

WAFFLES:  You got EGGS under your pillow??? Scrambled or over easy?

KATIE:  You've GOT to be kidding. 

WAFFLES:  So what about Santa Claws. Does he ride with the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy? Who drives?

KATIE:  I am SO out of here.

WAFFLES:  Sheesh, this holiday stuff is confusing. At least I'm clear on the Great Leper Can.

Easter & Passover Greetings
We wish all of our friends and readers a happy and peaceful Easter and Passover filled with the love of family and friends from afar. While we stay safe and shelter at home, we're reminded that even when we're far away from those we love, they are still very much present in our hearts.

We want to share something very special with you today. If you've been with us for a while and follow Glogirly on Facebook, you might remember that she had an opportunity to see Andrea Bocelli in concert at Denver's Pepsi Center last year. It was a bucket list concert for her. She wasn't prepared for how truly incredible his performance and his voice was in person. Recordings, as beautiful as they are, simply don't do the power and beauty of his voice justice.

So when she heard he would be performing a 30-minute Music For Hope concert live from Duomo di Milano on Easter Sunday and broadcasting it via YouTube, she made sure to tune in. It was incredible. He performed both inside and outside Italy's Duomo Cathedral, sharing a message of hope with the world from a broken city. Drone footage of a quiet and nearly deserted Milan, Paris, London, and New York provided part of the backdrop to his performance, as well as the incredible Duomo cathedral.

He finishes the concert outside the cathedral with a performance of Amazing Grace that we promise will fill your heart and soul, and move you to tears.

We send you our heartfelt love today. You are not alone.

Amazing Grace -

The full 30-minute concert -

Waffles IS Bubble Boy

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! Can you see me? How do I look?

KATIE:  Like Bubble Boy. Is that part of your new social distancing and quarantine strategy, Waffles? Because if it is...I like it. 

WAFFLES:  I know! I look handsome, don't I? 

KATIE:  Actually, I'm liking the fact that you're stuck inside that bubble. And I'm out here.

WAFFLES:  Ha, ha. Very funny, Boss. I'm not stuck inside a bubble.

KATIE:  Oh yeah?

WAFFLES:  OMG!!! I'm stuck inside a BUBBLE!!!

The Secret of Bubble Boy
While passing the time as we shelter at home, Gloman showed us his latest photography gadget, the Lensball. It's a baseball-sized sphere of crystal clear glass. It's made to be used with any camera. All you do is hold it in front of the lens, position it so you can see your subject inside the ball, and shoot. The image you see and the image your camera captures is actually upside down, so all of today's Lens Ball photos are flipped 180 degrees so they appear right side up.

It's super fun to play with!

WAFFLES:  I'm out! I'm out!

KATIE:  Yeah well, I liked you better when you were stuck inside the Lensball.
