Sunny Flipper: Best of the Week

“Parents who wonder where the younger generation is going should remember where it came from.”
Sam Ewing.

Does that transfer to pets?
And if so does it mean I can no longer complain about how head-strong Flipper is?
Or about Sunny’s effusive personality? Not to mention he doesn’t have an “inside voice”.
(Same trait that someone else revealed in a previous post : )

This week’s highlight: trespassers on the property!
(According to Sunny and Flipper.)
It’s weekday, 3:30 in the afternoon. Sunny and Flipper are at the window watching what’s going on outside.
(Flipper loves watching the people go by. So I make sure she gets the “window seat” in time to see the kids walking home from school.)

I’m in the back office working. All of sudden I hear a big commotion! Flipper does the high-volume (what I call “overenthusiastic”) greeting. She normally does that when someone is approaching the front door. I’m not expecting anyone but maybe a friend is dropping by for a visit.

I get there and look out the window to see the source causing this uproar!  It’s a cat!

Dinner with a view

Dinner time

A beautiful black and white cat is lying on my front lawn, basking in the sun.

A few kids have stopped to pet it.
Flipper is obviously alerting me of trespassers : ) on the property.

I look at the clock. Soon it’s time for their dinner.  And since it’s nice out, we can go for a short walk.
But first I need to finish what I’m working on. So I leave the squawking party and go back to my desk.

Flipper and Sunny will keep a watchful eye on what’s happening in the neighborhood.
Who said only dogs can keep an eye on things?!

The perks of working from home
Working from home can be challenging at times – because of all the interruptions and distractions.
Yes, it does take more discipline and focus to get work done.
On the plus side, on my breaks I get to play for few minutes with Flipper and Sunny.
What can I say – working from home does have its perks : )
