Sunday morning

I slept in late this morning. Well, late for me which is fine. I do not need to be getting up at 5 for any reason. I've treadmilled and breakfasted and even read most of the morning paper in addition to the requisite daily internet catching up. It's still early morning enough.

The bird netting is 4 stops out from delivery. I've thought about this a lot. I've lived here for 30 years come January. I've had cats for all of those 30 years. Every single cat I've had has spent quality time out on that ledge. Without falling.

One November, years and years ago, I got a package in the mail from my Mom. She had not mentioned it. It was not my birthday or Christmas. I opened it up and it was a smoke detector. WTF? (This was back before they were ubiquitous. They were new and not everywhere. They were all over the news. With every fire, someone pointed out that a smoke detector could have saved lives.)

So I called to ask what the deal was. And she explained that she was doing early Christmas shopping. She had gotten all three of us smoke detectors as part of our Christmas but then got to thinking .. what if one of us had a fire between now and Christmas and could have been saved by a smoke detector but didn't have one???? She said she just could not get that out of her mind so she went ahead and sent them to us early.

That's kind of how I feel about blocking the terrace ledge. Now that I know a way to do it, if I don't and something happens, I'll feel way worse. Plus, Biggie's been through enough in his short life. I have to try.

So that's a today project. Also laundry. And the last baseball game.

He should get out there now while the gettin's still possible!
