A New Trailer and Kitties

A few weeks ago when my daughter and son-in-law visited, Aaron was telling me that I needed a pickup truck.  "Yes", I told him, "but I can't afford two vehicles".  Then he told me I needed a utility trailer.  "Yes", I said, "it's on my wish list but I've done without this long, it can wait".   Well the next thing I knew, I was informed that I was the owner of a pull behind utility trailer and I would get a call when they were ready to install the trailer hitch on my little car. 


Was I ever surprised.  I'll get a lot of use out of this little thing and now I won't have to beg neighbors to borrow their trucks!  I'm not used to pulling it yet though, and don't even ask me about backing up with this thing.  I need to practice!

Now jumping is Topaz acting like a vulture like Snoopy does on the Charlie Brown specials.
Here's a picture of Topaz and Smudge all cozy under the mattress I still haven't put away since I had company!

Speaking of matresses...I'm exhausted and ready to hit mine.  Poor Princess had me up at about 3:00 a.m. this morning.  Bless her little heart.  She's getting so old and crotchedy and can't make it through the night without going outside once or twice.  It's like having a newborn baby all over again!
