Fun, fun, fun ... zzzzzzzzzz!

This morning, as I went from my bedroom to the TV room and kitchen, Audace zipped out of my closet and raced into the rest of the rooms with a strand of yarn in his mouth. He was VERY happy! Following is a series of photos that illustrate his joy. Ruse joined him in the chase, too, but Ruse is harder to photograph when he's on the move!

I'd rewind the yarn, and they'd play again, then I'd rewind it and they'd play, and on and on. They kept this up for quite a while, surprising me.












He was all wound up in the yarn and suddenly lay down and almost went to sleep! So I took all the yarn off him - that was quite a job!

A few minutes later, I found the abandoned, mostly unwound ball of yarn in the kitchen!

And here they are, snoozing away!

They must have played with that yarn for a good 75-90 minutes. That's a long time to keep something like that up! Now they've been asleep for about 3 hours! No surprise there!!

OK - that is just plain adorable!!! I love that no matter how many toys we buy, they are always amused by the simple things. And the picture of the nap is just precious....

Good to see them playing so heartily. Glad they didn't decide to eat it instead.

The news of Annie is so good. We're so happy for her and for you.

That sounds like it was LOTS of fun! Maybe I can get my human to pull one of her old balls of yarn that she never crocheted out of the closet for me.
