Ah...that's better! We don't do too well when our blogging time is restricted. So the big tree is up in the living room and while we're all enjoying playing under its boughs and drinking the water, the tree remains incomplete. The lights are up but no hanging cat toys (aka ornaments). The Tall Man says that you can only decorate the tree when there is good Christmas Magic in the air and there just isn't around here.
I know we haven't been commenting as much as usual but we're just kind of all sad. We really miss our friends Dragonheart & Merlin and we don't know if they're OK or not. We mailed them a letter but haven't heard from them, we just hope they're OK.
As everyone knows this Economy is bad bad news. Its getting tight at the office and today the Tall Man & Lap Lady have to let someone go. Its not something my humans want to do at all but they have to keep the company going for everyone else who depends on it. The nice man's part of the company is so slow there is no work for him to do at all. They've been giving him office related stuff (website, etc) but its just been too long with no new projects and none on the horizon (despite very valiant marketing efforts). The Lap Lady's been really stressed and depressed about all of this so we've been lying low and purring on her a lot. She's a nice Lap Lady and she can't stand hurting other people even when she knows its the only way.
In good news at least Auntie K is coming to visit us on Monday! She lives in Kentucky so its a nice treat and the Lap Lady can't wait to see her.
