Thursday: Hili Dialogue

July 16, 2015 • 5:55 am

Good morning, happy day of Thor. Make sure you honor him in appropriate ways.

Today in 1945 the Atom Bomb was tested in Alamogordo, New Mexico, in 1935 the first parking meter was installed, in 1951 Catcher in the Rye was finally published after having been rejected a couple of times; in 1969 the Apollo 11 mission blasted off on its way to the moon.

Over in Dobrzyń Hili is up to Important Cat Stuff.

A: Hili, what are you doing up there?
Hili: I’m pretending that I’m just taking pictures.


In Polish:

Ja: Hili, co ty tam robisz?
Hili: Udaję, że go tylko fotografuję.

Meanwhile, Leon is being a Helpful Cat with every bit of solemnity the task requires.

Leon: Guarding the preserves is a very responsible task.

    1. Amazeballs! In China and Japan you see many people in crowds wearing masks. Do you suppose they are warning away bykissers?

  1. My parents were living in Alamogordo at the time of the first nuclear test; my father was stationed at Alamogordo AFB (now Holloman AFB) as a flight instructor during WWII.

    They said that several of their windows cracked, and the noise and the vibrations could be heard as though they were next door. L

  2. …and according to Google’s header, it’s Ida B. Wells’ 153rd Birthday. Happy birthday Ida.

  3. Just a bit on more current history – from 10 pm last night to 6 am. this morning had more than 4.5 inches of rain. This is southwest Iowa and it feels like Guam.

  4. Leon is a one box cat! Hili has one more pot to go.

    I honor Thor every day, I bear his name. Or his bear is me. Well, something like that…

  5. Recently watched PBS American Masters on JD Salinger and was quite disturbed by him. Brilliant story, no doubt, but his life, his treatment of women, er, well, more like girls, was creepy. He was a very damaged person. I don’t know how much of that was from the war experience, or something else, but I really was bothered by his obsession with very young girls.
