ELLIE: Are you ready for the party, Mr. Waffles? There's going to be snacks and cake and maybe even some tissue paper!
WAFFLES: Snacks are good!
WAFFLES: Oh, and lots and lots of people. Ski people, neighbors, and even Dr. Fern.
WAFFLES: Wait, what?? Our VET is coming to Glogirly's birthday party???
WAFFLES: No one cleared that with me.
ELLIE: But she's bringing snacks and stuff–
WAFFLES: Let's hope that's all she's bringing.
It was our girl's birthday last week and we threw a Summer Apres Ski Season Soire for her and her ski friends. This was a milestone birthday for her...she likes to say it's the 36th anniversary of her 24th birthday. But that requires a lot of math to figure out.
Everyone had a wonderful time. There was lots of laughter, yummy food, and a big birthday cake!
Glgirly's ski friend Holly's birthday was the day before hers so it was a joint celebration. The only thing missing was SNOW. LOL!

Just Another Day in the Office
Sunday, July 9, 2023
ELLIE: What's a hijack? I like sitting up here really high and stuff. But my name's not Jack. It's Ellie.
WAFFLES: Hijack is you trying to steal my Waffle Wagon. I've got your number, Ellie.
ELLIE: What's my number, Mr. Waffles? I kind of like seven. Or maybe two. Yeah, two. Like you and–
WAFFLES: Not that kind of number, Ellie.
About Today's Photos
One of Ellie's favorite toys. or rather playground, is the Waffle Wagon. It's especially fun when Waffles is IN it. Sometimes she'll just sit in it, waiting for Waffles to join her. Other times, when Waffles is already inside, she'll attempt to negotiate a joint partnership.
Her favorite spot is up on top of the bonnet. It's anything but stable and takes a lot of balance and kitty-agility. And the best part about it is the mesh screen that she can peer at Waffles through and the opening on the sides where she can reach down to taunt him and as Gloman calls it, "tweak his beak."
The tray table and cup holder attached to the handle is pretty fun too. That's where Ellie keeps her plastic bottle caps, a.k.a., her other favorite toys.

ELLIE: Mr. Waffles! Are you going to help with shower duty?
WAFFLES: I'm super handsome enough–
ELLIE: Mr. Waffles!!! Glogirly's going to turn the water on. You're going to get all WET!
WAFFLES: I'm not scared of a little water. Are you?
ELLIE: Uh... maybe?
About Today's Photos and "Shower Duty"
Every night at about 9pm, Ellie heads to the bathroom and waits. That's about the time Glogirly takes her shower and Ellie LOVES to help. She doesn't actually go IN the shower, but she sits right outside the door, watching and waiting. She helps Glogirly towel off, supervises her putting on her face cream, coming her hair, and putting on her cat pajamas. There's just something about being the bathroom with Glogirly that she absolutely loves.
Waffles is more paws-on when it comes to shower duty. He likes to go IN the shower. He sits on the bench, away from the spray, and watches in fascination. Sometimes he even moves closer to the falling water. That is until his toes get wet. Then it's all over.
WAFFLES: OPEN THE DOOR!!! OPEN THE DOOR!!!
