He Must Work Out


WAFFLES:  Glogirly may be working out on the ski slope, but I've got to take care of business here at home. Gotta maintain my mancatly physique for the ladies. 

ELLIE:  I didn't know you worked out, Mr. Waffles!

WAFFLES:  Duh. Of course I workout, Ellie. This kind of handsome doesn't just happen. It takes hard work, dedication, commitment–

ELLIE:  But Mr. Waffles, your legs aren't long enough to reach the pedals on that bike.

Mr. Handsome

Just another photo of you-know-who, doing his best centerfold pose. Proof that Waffles' workout regime is still working quite well, even if only in his head. LOL!

 WAFFLES:  Zoomies? What zoomies?

Waffles and Mr. Two O'Clock

ELLIE:  Hi everybuddy, Ellie here! Today the deer family came by for a visit. It was getting kind of dark so Glogirly didn't get any pictures of them, but she SWEARS that one of the deer was an old friend of Mr. Waffles. The deer came right up to the window to get a closer look at him and it totally reminded Glogirly of Mr. Two O'Clock, who came by to visit during the pandemic. I wasn't even born yet, but Katie was here to see the whole thing. We thought you might like to read the story again! 


WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! Your 2:00 is here. 

KATIE:  My what???

WAFFLES:  Your 2:00. He's right here waiting outside the office door. Don't you have a meeting?

KATIE:  Uh, NO. Just like everyone else, we're working from home. So if some guy is showing up here for a meeting, he better go home and zoom us, or skype us, or something. 

MR. TWO O'CLOCK:  Zoom??? Skype??? What the heck does that mean? I'm here for snacks, not some zoomy-skypey thing.

KATIE:  Don't feed the interlopers, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  I think he likes me, Boss. Did you see his shoes?! 

MR. TWO O'CLOCK:  Shoes??? Who ARE these clowns?

WAFFLES:  Yup, he totally likes me.

We were all hanging out in the office today when all of a sudden, a young deer just walked right up to the door. He was super curious and was completely fascinated with us. He especially had eyes for Waffles. He must have stayed by the door for 30 minutes. If we had opened it, (which we NEVER would) he'd have walked right in.

Hopefully, Mr. Two O'Clock hasn't been given food by any humans, but we're afraid he maybe has considering how brave and tame he seemed to be. We have a very strict do-not-feed-the-wildlife rule here. Except for the hummingbirds. The sweet, sugar-water bar is always open for them.

Glogirly is BACK!


ELLIE:  Hey, Mister Waffles! Glogirly is coming home today!

WAFFLES:  It's about time! She's been gone for elebenty-billion days.

ELLIE:  She's only been gone a week, Mr. Waffles. Isn't that like seven days? 

WAFFLES:  That's what I said. Elebenty-billion days. 

Back from Aspen Snowmass!

After a white-knuckle drive through a blizzard and over snowy mountain passes, Glogirly is home again! She and four friends stayed slope side at Aspen Snowmass. They skied for six days and had a blast. The weather was COOOOOLD! But the snow and conditions were gorgeous. There was even a day with fresh tracks through champagne powder. (That's ski-speak for AMEOWZING)

Though most of the runs Glogirly and her friends skied were blues, there were a couple of black diamonds! One called Showcase and another called Slot.

These are Aspen's breathtaking Maroon Bells as seen from the top of Snowmass at 11,325 feet.

Glogirly's friends Barbara and Marc riding up the gondola.

First tracks morning. WOW!

Time for unpacking, laundry, and NAPS!

While the Kitties Sleep...


ELLIE:  Have you seen Glogirly, Mr. Waffles?

WAFFLES:  Zzzzzz....

ELLIE:  I think she's out playing on the snow again.

WAFFLES:  Zzzzzzzzz...

ELLIE:  I hope she has a warm jacket and stuff.

WAFFLES:  Zzzz...

ELLIE:  Ok then. I guess I'll go back to –

WAFFLES:  Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

ELLIE:  Sleep...Zzzz...

While the Kitties Sleep –

Glogirly is taking full advantage of the beautiful Colorado mountains this week. She's heading to Aspen Snowmass foreseen days with some of her ski friends. Waffles, Ellie, and Gloman will be holding down the fort at home- Watching their Netflix stories, taking lots of naps, plenty of snacks, you know...the usual. 

We know this is a CAT blog and not a ski blog...but we did lead off with a pretty cute Ellie-Waffles photo. LOL! These photos are from our local ski area, Eldora. It's just 25 minutes from home so Glogirly and her friends ski there a LOT. 

Winter wonderland!

Going UP!

Ski like a CAT girl! 

Don't look down!

Yes, Glogirly dared take her phone out of her pocket while on the chairlift. (!)

The snow and the views are magical.
