I'm back!

I'm back!


I said, I'M BACK!

And for the benefit of those at the back of the room who might not have already heard.


I know, I know...  I know what you're thinkin'.  You're thinkin' the peeps, Saffy, and I; all went on vacation.  Went on vacation to some sunny place with not too much heat.  Went on vacation to get away from the hustle and bustle of nappin' and snoozin' and snackin', not to mention lookin' for decent-sized sunpuddles and things.


Well that would be wrong.


Truth is, we weren't on vacation at all.


So why did I miss two blog posts, you ask?

That's a very good question, my friends.  A very good question, indeed.  Suffice it to say, it was Peepers' fault.

Of course.


Thing is, somethin' happened to the phone.  Line went dead.  Dead as a door nail, for sure.  And the phone peeps couldn't come out to fix whatever it was for a big ol' whole week.


But luckily for me, I still had the Internet.  Now it was slow.  Slow as molasses, they say.  But although obviously affected by whatever was botherin' the phone, it was NOT dead.  Just slow.  Slow, slow, SLOW.

Think I might have mentioned that.  That it was slow.


So if I had the Internet, WHY did I miss two blog posts, you again ask?

Very, VERY good question, indeed.

"I'm not sitting there at your desk for hours on end trying to publish your posts," she said.  "I'm not sitting there waiting and waiting and watching that little circle thing go around and around.  Believe it or not, Seville, I have better things to do."

"Well so do I!" I replied.  "I've got my afternoon nap scheduled for three.  And a snack after that.  WHICH IS WHY I need you to sit there and wait 'til the little circle thingy stops circlin' so you can publish my post, and..."

"Seville, I have OTHER things to do."

"AS. DO. I."

Did I not mention that nap?


So this went back and forth for a bit but it was finally decided that until the Internet and phone were back up and runnin' properly, my postin' would have to wait.

Although to be perfectly honest...

To be perfectly honest, it wasn't actually a decision we both made.  It was more like a situation where Peepers got up and left the room without so much as an excuse me or a by your leave or anythin' like that.

The nerve.


WHICH IS WHY my missin' two blog posts was, like I said...


'Cause what's an hour or five sittin' at the computer watchin' a little circle go 'round and 'round, bein' told the connection has timed out over and over again, to a peep?  What's that to a peep when said peep knows she's helpin' her favourite bloggin' kitty out?

It's not like I could have wasted my time like that.  I had IMPORTANT things to do.

You know, like my previously scheduled afternoon nap.



And remember:



Continue to practice SOCIAL DISTANCIN' measures



Remember to mask up, too.


  1. Slow is not good especially in the blogger world Seville. Welcome back!!!

  2. She had something more important to do than your blog? What could be more important than that? MOUSES!

    We were starting to wonder, Sivvers. We sure are glad you are all okay, and that the phone and internet are back up and running!

  3. We had that years back. Dowloaded the latest update, and wham, after an hour, the connection failed and all lost. Thank goodness for having staff. Frankly, they should be pleased they have purpose, ie, serving our needs.
    But so pleased you're back. Hopefully you mopped up all that gooey molasses?
    Toodle pips and purrs

  4. I can't really blame your Peep. That little whirling circle will make you dizzy. Better to take nap.

  5. What a bummer, Seville.
    When this happens here, I pack up my stuff and go to the nearest office, if it's a work day, or to the library.
    Plus I bring all of my cables and plug everything in to charge, just in case.
    A week is a long time to be offline!


I love hearin' from my pals. I really, REALLY do. PURRS.
