Mom and Dad went to an oyster boil a few weekends ago. It was an unseasonably warm weekend and a perfect day for it.

Steaming hot oysters
Look at these things. Aside from being steaming hot, I have no idea how a cat is even supposed to get one open to get to the goodness inside. I don't know who even thought to pry one of these things open and see if it tasted good. But Mom and Dad said they were good. They had shrimps too. And no, they didn't bring us any at all.

Mom and Dad are now doing lights and sound for the musical John & Jen at Mom's theatre. It is fun for them, but takes them away from us some. So we have to be persistent about getting attention from them when they are home. Maggie's new "look at me" technique is headbutting the monitor when Dad is on the computer and turning it away from Dad so he has to pay attention to her. It's not his favorite trick of her's (but he does think it is funny when she accidentally opens the CD drive). I'm still partial to laying on the mouse -- works every time!

Well. Now WE want oysters! We walk on the laptop keys for attention, works every time!

We would like oysters too! Mum doesn't like my favourite trick for getting attention either. When I jump up on the desk, I put my foot on the computer and turn it off. It has a sensor touch pad and mum says it was a silly place to put it because it is too easy to touch. She puts a chair in front of it to stop me turning it off.

How terrible that your humans did not bring back any oysters or shrimp for you! They need to make up for it by bringing home chicken. That's what I say!
