They've been all busy doing stuff like Festival Parade Float Book Sale Carpet Cleaning Mess Week, and making sets and backdrops for the library's Centennial Play, and celebrating the retirement of one of my Assistant Assistant Bosses.
Let me show you.
Here is our Award-Winning "Quack Open a Good Book" float.

Here I am supervising the Mess-making.
|Yep. This is going to be a mess.|
|Not sad. Not one bit.|
Here are a few great pictures of the Centennial Play and the actresses:

At the end of the play, AB Christine presented the library's Centennial Quilt. This quilt has been in the making for a year and a half! It's a sampler quilt made up of 20 unique blocks (by 20 unique quilters) that all share one common "theme" fabric.
SO--as you can see, it has been very busy here, but 99.9% of the busy-ness has been non-LibraryCat-related. I've had to work to get everyone's attention.
I was especially disappointed by AAB Kathy who, as you may remember, is one of the better-trained ones. I had asked her, like, SIX times to give me a treat (or two). She ignored and ignored me, so I had to resort to this:
FYI, knocking things onto the floor (and almost into the toilet) is a great way to get your human's attention.
On Wednesday they celebrated Grouch Day by eating cake and taking a photo. (Around here we celebrate days ending with "Y" with cake.) They aren't even Grouching correctly! Look!
|All smiles! (Cake does that to people.)|
Even if my staff has gotten complacent and decided not to throw me a big Finding Day Celebration, I'm still glad that I got Found and have this awesome 100-year-old library for my Forever Home.
My official Finding Day is Sunday, October 19, and AAB Karen, my official Finder, will be spending extra time with me, so I guess I really haven't been Forgotten and Ignored.
Really, I'm so handsome it would be nearly impossible to Forget and Ignore me, RIGHT?!
