ELLIE: Whatcha got, Mr. Waffles? Is that our birthday present for Glogirly? Does she like orange snakes? Because I LOVE orange snakes.
WAFFLES: I'm thinking she's not much of a snake fan, Ellie. Even orange furry ones like this.
ELLIE: So what are we going to give her for her birthday? Should we go shopping? You know, like online and stuff?
WAFFLES: You're still pretty young, Ellie. So you may have not learned this yet. The kitty that came before you–
ELLIE: You mean the Boss? Katie?
WAFFLES: Yes, Katie. She taught me that it's not about shiny new wand toys, furry fake snakes, or catnip filled mouses. It's not even about chicken treats.
ELLIE: Not about chicken treats??? Seriously?!
WAFFLES: I know. At first I thought that was all just crazy talk.
ELLIE: So what do we give her, Mr. Waffles? Because it's got to be super special and stuff.
WAFFLES: The best present we could ever give her is to fill her heart with love.
ELLIE: But how do we do that, Mr. Waffles?
WAFFLES: It's easy, Ellie. You know how much she loves it when we're together, right?
ELLIE: I think so.
Happy Birthday to our Girl!!!
This coming Tuesday, July 19, is a very special day here in the mountains. It's our girl's birthday! She probably isn't going to divulge just how many years she's celebrating...she doesn't want to blow Waffles' mind with such big numbers.
Glogirly and Gloman already celebrated at one of their favorite restaurants over the weekend with Champagne and yummy food. Tomorrow, Glogirly is going to see James Taylor with a dear friend. There will be lots of kitty and Gloman cuddles all week. ...but that's pretty much how every week is!
The best gift in the world is being together. Glogirly, Gloman, Waffles, and Ellie - It's what makes all our hearts happy and full.
