FMM - Oh, Henry!

The other day I walked into my bathroom, saw Henry in a new spot, spun back on my heels to grab my phone, and got the cutest shot of him:
He found a comfy hidey-hole!

I mean, am I thrilled that my cat is lying on my bath towels?  No.  But look how content he is, all tucked in behind the stack of towels.  How could I be mad?

********************

As I was driving Paco to the vet earlier in the week, we came to a red light.  Suddenly he started barking like a madman, which he doesn't usually do in the car.  I looked around and realized that a garbage truck was in the lane next to us, and he recognized it.  Garbage trucks are his mortal enemies, followed closely by the UPS truck and the mail truck.  He barked enough that it drove away, so job well done, Paco.

On Wednesday evening, I met up with my fellow Renegades at Salata for dinner, and then we went to the movie theater to see Boston:  An American Running Story.  I was surprised that hardly anyone was in the theater, but I don't think the movie was promoted very well.  Here we are:
Me, Diane, Cary, Andi, and Julia.  My arm needed to be a couple inches longer to get a full shot, but you get the picture (har har).

What you aren't seeing is the man Julia was sitting next to - he was wearing his Boston Marathon shirt and she was talking to him quite a bit about his experience running the race.  I was too far away to really hear much, but we entertained ourselves well enough until the movie began.
That morning I ran 5 miles with Diane, had a 250 calorie breakfast, salad for dinner, and a box of Milk Duds at the movie - I think I was actually fine with my daily calories, although it wasn't the most nutritious day...but it was exactly what I wanted.

The movie was really good and had all of us tearing up at various points.  And when we were watching the great MEB come in for the finish of the 2014 race, we were all cheering him on, even though we already knew he won.  It's just as exciting to see the second time around.  If you get a chance to see this movie, I highly recommend it.

We have a 10K on tap this Sunday; fingers crossed the predicted weather forecast with a morning low of 52 degrees holds true; I think that would be the best weather we've had for a race in forever!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Henry is a cutie. Cats are awesome! I bought that book for my sis for her birthday and she was super excited. She's going to let me read it this summer.

  2. I love cats and their quirks, I really do. I bet he was thinking that was the best place ever.

    Thank goodness Paco is always on guard for you - he cracks me up!

    I don't think that movie played anywhere near me and if it did, they didn't advertise it at all. Hopefully it's streaming soon. Glad you enjoyed your Duds, we all need an occasionaly eat what we want day!

    Crossing my fingers for your 52. That would be great weather for a race.

  3. I kept getting emails from some marketing guy about the movie, he wanted me to promote it, but didn't offer any benefits for me--a free ticket would have been sufficient. So I wonder if their marketing budget was low? Idk, if you want word of mouth, that's ok, but make it worth my while! I'll see the movie when it's on Netflix.

    1. He must have been a terrible promoter - yes, offer you a free ticket for promoting it! I was never approached - we just happened to see a preview for it when we were at the Lego Batman movie last month. Definitely a good movie though, and well worth watching, when you can.

  4. Such a cute photo of Henry. I can't blame him for wanting to be in such a comfy spot.

    When I bring Bella to doggy day care before going to work in the morning, she sometimes sees someone walk and starts to bark. I can tell you that that's not good for your heart rate LOL. She often barks in the car, especially when we pass another dog, as if the other dog will be impressed by a dog in a car behind glass barking at him/her :)

    Have a great weekend and a good run.

  5. That picture of Henry is so cute--I bet it could win a cat photo contest!

    Too bad they didn't promote it, but it sounds like you had a great night at the movies! And 52 degrees for your run? Amazing this late in the year!

    1. I wish it was a better resolution - I'd even print a copy, but with the iPhone 6, the pictures aren't all that great from a distance, unfortunately.

  6. Aww love that picture of sweet Henry! I did not go see that movie and you are right, the marketing for it was non-existent here. Our 2 local theaters played it but I only knew about it through word of mouth.

  8. Well, I knew nothing about that movie! Oh well. Henry is adorable. My dogs like to sleep in the dirty laundry basket.

    1. Paco likes to sleep in my closet, under my hanging clothes. Basically there's some sort of pet fur on pretty much everything in my house.
