I am so sorry. Really I am. I didn't mean it. It's all my fault. It started yesterday.
The missus came home and one vase was on it's side and the white tablecloth was wet. She muttered something about cats and liners. I think she meant that she was glad she had the liner under the table. I have no clue what she said about cats. It was all a bit strange. See those silver birds on the clustered vases? Did you know that they move? Yes, they do and I think maybe I get a bit carried away. I'm sorry.
So the missus stripped off the white table cloth and this one which happened to be lying on the table too. I think she was auditioning. Just how much water do you think those vases can hold? Well, trust me, about half a tablecloth's worth.
So they both dried over night. One on the ironing board and one on the guest bed. Can you believe she closed the door??? No need to banish me. It was just water!!!
So we got over yesterday. And then there was today. It's Saturday, she's not supposed to go anywhere and she knows it. But she did. She left early too. And then came back. Oh boy, I thought, she's home to entertain me. I have her all to myself. What was I thinking? Next thing I know, she's changing into jeans and grabs her purse and leaves. She left me again. This is just so wrong. You know what I mean?
So you know the old saying... while the missus is away the cats will play. She had gotten up really early this morning, filled out some paper work (which she promptly left here) and wrote a letter. Too busy to give me any attention. And she set this table, minus glasses. I don't know why she wouldn't put those out. I'm just saying....
So then she comes home and I thought she would be soo glad to see me. All she did was let out a howl and said more things about cats. I got my feelings hurt. Did you know she speaks about 4 languages? Well she does.. and cat sounds almost the same in every one of them!
What's a little water? I think she was upset because the vase was lying down. Not the same one! I was careful not to touch that one. Yesterday was bad enough. No, I selected a different one, but I guess that was wrong too.
So all was well for a while. But I guess I upset her. Her friend came over and they had such a nice chat. I sidled up to the missus and she was my best friend again. Nose kisses and back rubs, all was well in the world...
Aren't these yellow Kalanchoe cousins cute on the table. I thought they weren't potted correctly. I was just trying to help. The Spanish moss she used to cover up the dirt was intriguing. So feathery and wispy, just what I like!
I prefer real dirt, don't you?

Thanks for dropping by, please put in a good word for me.. she loves to read those comments!
She got over it, I think. Last I heard she was singing Yvonne's (Stone Gable) praises about some Caesar salad dressing!
