“Do we need to stop at a grocery store and pick up anything for the weekend?”
“I’ll ask Margot.”
“And dinner tonight? Have we any plans or are we just going to stop somewhere on the way.”
“J…look. We’re going to have an adventure, ok? Just got with it!
“I was going to ask you these questions yesterday but you weren’t feeling well and then you were sleepy. Food is very important!”
“I promise I will feed you, ‘k?”

Yesterday some of the officers took Hennessy, Susie, Wise and I to the shooting range just for fun. I got to shoot an AK47, an M4, and an Uzi. Also, there were flash grenades! We were out in the desert sun for nearly 4 hours and I got heatstroke afterward, but it was worth it. Pictures forthcoming.
And today we are going to head to Cedar City, Utah for the weekend for their annual Shakespeare Festival! Margot’s grandparents have a home in the area where we are crashing for the night, meeting up with her non-boyfriend-significant-other-gentleman-caller Wrench and frolicking for the weekend. J. loves Southern Utah, his family are all hikers, rock climbers, and campers and have spent many a holiday in the area.
I for one am glad to be doing something. I’ve turned into a housecat recently, and like spending weekends at home doing the mundane things I never seem to manage during the week. And yet…I’ve had a hankering to go and do! Explosions and Shakespeare rose nicely to the occasion. What are your weekend plans, kittens? Staying home with family or friends? Summer fests? Water parks? Barbeques? Sound off!
