Continuing with the collaboration* between JYP and the AWB, Content Like a Cat is our first original song. JYP wrote the lyrics, I wrote the music, played, and recorded the song.
Content as a Cat By JYP and the AWB
They don’t need the new hot thing Cats find their joy batting a piece of string
To enjoy meals, cuddles, treats, and snacks. To have no worries Except “I’m late for my nap!”
To be as happy and content as a cat That is our life’s goal To be as happy and content as a cat In the dirt, we’ll roll To be as happy and content as a cat We’d scratch on a pole To be as happy and content as a cat Fulfills us, makes us whole
They don’t need cars, fancy clothes or yachts Oh, to be as happy as a cat in a box!
The cats approve this song.
Marble, Glenda, and Spunk
Buddy knows how to be content like a cat, also.
Sasha is “as happy as a cat in a box!”
And so is Loki!
*The first post with a collaboration between JYP and the AWB was Post COVID World.
The MLPs, Shocking Blue and Pink Venus, that Santa gave Laurie and me for Christmas started kicking the cats. I asked what’s up with that, and they said: “Kick The Cat” was a popular kids’ game. I told them the game was called “Kick The Can” and it was like “Hide and Seek”, “Capture the Flag” and “Tag” in one game and did not involve kicking cats. Shocking Blue said: “Oh! I heard ‘kick the cat!’ My bad!” I think they are mean and ornery MLPs. We had Shetland Ponies when I was growing up. One was named Frisky. She was a mean little pony. Frisky would buck us off and play “Kick The Kid”.
Shocking Blue and Pink Venus played “Kick The Cat” on Spunk, Marble, Sasha, and Silver. As it turned out, Silver, who bullies the other kitties, has taken a liking to the MLPs and got Shocking Blue and Pink Venus to settle down and snuggle with him. Maybe the MLPs with help silver stop bullying the other kitties.
The clouds were threatening rain at sunset.
Check Duolingo Crap! In the demotion zone Will I make it out?
At 33 minutes left on the clock, I found myself in the penultimate position in the Demotion Zone needing 140 XP to keep from being demoted. I was not the only one in the demotion zone trying to get out, so the number of XP needed to extricate myself increased as I worked through stories trying to amass points. In the end, I did make it out of the demotion zone with only 30 seconds to spare, but I had to get 252 XP to do it.
…and that you pesky pathetic paparazzo pretending to be a poet!
Silver’s reactions to my latest poem I recited to him:
Free-range dust bunnies Frolicking around the floor Evasive moves Hop over brooms Impossible to corral Dust bunnies freely roam Frolicking on the floor Oops! I dropped my buttered toast Dust bunny’s now a ghost
My birthday cake. Costco didn’t have any cakes with Happy Birthday!
This is a display along Corrales Road. I’m happy I got it early. The skeleton disappeared after the high winds last week.
All the cats got to try on the bat wings. Loki in photos 12 and 13 was the best batwing model. Glenda (3rd photo) and Gwendolyn (last photo) were pretty good, also. Black cats know they look good in bat wings. Spunk, on the other hand, told me exactly what he thought about wearing bat wings after I took them off him (7th photo).
