We are "Going on the Road" soon!

Just Look At What Our Queen Mum is planning
to get for us once she gains emloyment!!!

While this kind present given us a year
and some months ago remains a sentimental
favourite of the Royals, the ledges are beyond
repair and no longer support their weight.
It shall be delegated to where all well-used items
of feline pleasure are laid to rest.
Hello to all our true and loyal furriends!

We appreciate all of you who have stuck by us through thick and thin! Thank you those who have not judged us by what may be about out in the Blogosphere.

2007 started out quite a pleasant year, but by years end, was not one I will look forward to with unbridled pleasure.

We, as always appreciate the purrayers directed Our way, and take comfort in them!

On a lighter note, We hope all of Our furriends got everything their little fuzz-y hearts desired!

QM finds herself without a job, and has been searching and interviewing several times a week since the last week in November.

There is one slight glimmer of hope! Please keep your paws crossed for

Two weeks ago today, She interviewed for 2 positions in a Bridal Salon! Well, QM has had a lifelong passion to work in a salon, handling all those beautiful gowns, and most importantly, gently guiding the young Brides-to-Be on how to conduct oneself whilst wearing the most elaborate gown they will ever wear in their lifetimes!

Now, back in the day, QM did floristry designs exclusively for bridal parties. She feels, as did the assistant manager who interviewed her, that she was perfect for the job, and virtually offered her the positions on the spot! However, because of the weather being so beastly that day, the Manager of the shop did not make it in, although, ever prompt, QM was 30 minutes EARLY and waited in her car until the scheduled time!

QM phoned the Manager to offer to see her for a second interview, and was greeted warmly, with "I'm so glad you called!". In one of her capacities, QM will be assisting brides-to-be and others planning elegant gatherings in choosing the most tasteful invitations for their respective galas.

QM must meet the "District Manager" of the invitation designer, and at the same time, meet with the manager. Well, to say We have all been on pins and needles is an understatement!
My, We Have made up for some time by this post, haven't we?!
As the title "Going on the Road Soon" implies, be on the lookout for the Royals to "Reinvent" themselves!
(Princess Marigold had long been brooding to be more "grunge" in her appearance)
We'll see where this "road trip" takes us!
Hope to see you all in the "mosh pit"!
Blessings to you all!
(I fear we are going to need them!)

Oh, I am really hoping and praying that the QM gets this job. It sounds perfect for her. That cat condo looks like a lot of fun and I hope you can get it soon. The very best to you in the New Year.

It's not hard to tell that the pink kitty has really gotten a workout, huh? Grace & Company are in the process of ripping theirs up, too, and will no doubt have to have a replacement (or at least an addition) in the next few months. There are two other toys found at Target that are just too flimsy, one of which has never been good for these BIG BOYS! They are OK for kittens, but not when those kittens reach 15# and more!

All fingers, toes, and paws are crossed for QM to get this new job. Keep us all informed!

Purrs to our son/daughter/siblings!

Hmph! I meant to write "pink kitty climbinb toy" -- certainly not "pink kitty"!!!

Marilynn said...

I still can't get the spelling right, but I hope my comment above makes some kind of sense.

I am AMAZED at the size of Brutus. I shouldn't be since I think he is the same size as Audace, but with Grace's coloring! But LOOK at him there in front of the being-shredded kitty toy! Wow!!!

I must share some good news!
I just received a call from one of the 6 or so temp agencies I signed on with these past few weeks. While I'm still hoping for the permanent job at the Bridal Salon, I took this very short term assignment - for about 3 weeks - in the interim! It is a real Godsend to me right now, as I was very concerned to the point of losing sleep.
I want to thank you for keeping me in your purrayers! I start today at 2:00 pm EST, so I must move along!
Will update you all later!

Yes, Marilynn, isn't it odd how Brutus is the size of his brothers, but the image of his mum?! I'll bet Ruse and Audace has the same coat as Marigold - my, she sheds in clumps!

Oh, wow! The job sounds PURRFECT for your momma!

Love your cat condo. It's PINK an' just the right size. Mom put new sisal on ours with an industrial staple gun when ours got kinda shaggy (not THAT kind of shaggy) ... Tell your momma to go to a home-improvement store an' get some new sisal rope. She can use staples or nails to attach it ... Good As New!

Happy New Year! I have a feeling that 2008 is gonna be TERRIFIC for you an' your fambly!
