Tux’s Return from Minnesota

Ms. Mar and I returned home safely from our Minnesota adventure. I was happy to see Mr. C and even my kitty-ot brothers.

I must have picked up a virus or something because every time I opened my mouth words like “ya, you betcha”, or “uffda” came out. They speak an odd language up there. But there is an expression that I heard everywhere we went and that was that the people are “Minnesota nice.” You betcha they are.

If you’ve ever seen the movie “Fargo,” it’s a little like that. Maybe the Fargo lingo is a little exaggerated, but there were a couple of times that if I closed my eyes, I was sure Frances McDormand was standing in front of me talking.

As I reported last week, Ms. Mar made me get up at 5:00 a.m. to accompany her to take photos. Uffda!!!

Did I mention that she has a passion for taking photographs? She wanted me to share some of her photographs with you. I guess it was worth the loss of sleep that day. You betcha it was.

Reflection at Artist's Point

My brothers have been ignoring me since I got back. I think they’re jealous because I got to travel with Ms. Mar and they had to stay home. It’s either that or just because I’m just so darn cute.

I won’t be traveling for another few weeks we we go back to Minnesota for Ms. Mar’s niece’s wedding. I can hone my Minnesota accent a little more while I’m there. In the meantime, come with me next week on another adventure we have taken before.

Nap Time

I’m going to rest for now. It’s been a tiring week.  See you next week.  -eow for now.
