Our Maine Weekend Aftermath

Posted by F&S

Travelling with Martha is so much fun and she takes us to some really beautiful places.  This past weekend, we were running all around Acadia National Park in Maine.  We also spent a good deal of time exploring Skylands, our home in Seal Harbor.  Martha was doing some entertaining and there were many interesting guests.  The only trouble is that when we get back to the farm, we are so tired that we need about a day to recuperate.

When the dogs are away, the cats will play.  However, the dogs are back and I need to be careful.

When Francesca and Sharkey are around, I have to skulk in the kitchen.  They seem really exhausted.  What did Martha do with them up in Maine?  Why do they always get to travel with her?

Princess Peony, traveling is overrated.  The few times I've been in a car were horrible experiences!

You are so right, Vivaldi.  Cars and cats don't mix.

You can say that again, Verdi.  I, Bartok, prefer all the comforts of home.

I could get up and chase you, Peony, but I'm just too, too tired.

Why, I can barely keep my eyes open.  There was just no time to rest in Maine.  We were constantly on the go.

Hiking in Maine is a serious workout!  What do you have to say, Franny?

  • Awesome canine and feline family shots. Very nice getting to see the rarely seen Verdi and Bartok but Empress Tang must have been in hiding.

    It's the day before MommyMartha's birthday. What do you all have planned for her? Maybe bake a cake on that cute little stove you have? How about taking her on a picnic somewhere on the farm where all of you- the horses, donkeys, cats, and sheep can gather and celebrate her splendid day. That would be a lot of fun I think. :smile:

  • F & S you both looked pooped!! What the heck did you girls do while in Maine?

    I have to say the face of a sleeping Frenchie is the most adorable thing I've ever seen :) My mom gives me so many kisses and when I'm trying to take a snooze on her shoulder look out - kisses, kisses, kisses.

    So what was up with the blog yesterday? Did someone not show up for work???? And what are the plans for Martha's birthday? I hope you both have something special planned.

  • Hello Ladies,
    It looks like all you kids need a vacation after your travels to the Skylands. You all look very precious while you are sleeping. The heat is enough to get any of us down, but how do you do it G.K. with all that fur? You must constantly need to be spritzed. Keep up the resting. Oh, and those cats are pretty cute too--even for cats. Frenchies are still cuter.

    And the blog yesterday--did someone sleep in or what?

    I better get my after breakfast nap in as Mom and I are canning today. Have a great Tuesday.

    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • uuhhhh Bartok, I'm in Love! meeuw Kitty here!!!

    well we see the favoritism in the MS household, but then having the house and grounds to yourselves with out all that canine interference, IS a vacation...right Gatos???

  • Oh we forgot!!! A Very Happy Birthday, with Health and Happiness today and always...
    thanks for being part of our lives...
    Love ya, meeuww Kitty and mommie delia

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    You must have had a great time by the looks of you now. Traveling always makes me tired, but I can take a few naps and recover quickly. The thing about cat’s and traveling in a car seems odd to me. Now why would anyone not like to travel? Mommy said that they brought a cat with them when they moved from Montana to Ohio. Now that was really something with no AC in the autos back then; must have been in the early 1960’s. You should hear some of the stories mommy tells on some cats she had. OK, so the weekend is over; now back to work on those naps.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Girl Friends &GK, I just love these photos of Princess Peony, Vivaldi, Verdi, Bartok and all three of you wonderful dogs! You sure did look tired and you even exhausted Princess Peony! Guess I'll have to go take a nap, too after viewing this blog and reading about your very busy weekend. Have you decided what you are going to do today to celebrate Martha's delightful birthday?!Let us know! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+
