Teddy, Franklin, Eleanor & Me

Jim was gone on a trip for work last week, so while he was in Belgium spending your tax dollars I was home with my critters enjoying a great documentary on the Roosevelt family.  I’m an English teacher by training, but as a homebound teacher I’m usually required to instruct in all subjects for my students.  I found late in life that I have a real passion for history and a mild talent for teaching it.  One of my first experiences teaching history was a project a student had on American presidents.  They had to draw a name from a hat and do a report and an original monologue on their particular prez.  My kid got lucky and drew Theodore Roosevelt. We had a lot of fun learning about this iconic American president and I decided that the TEDSTER was my absolute favorite!  Whatever you can say about him you have to admit the guy certainly wasn’t boring!

So every night for a week, Mulder, Buster, the kittens and I settled down on the couch with a glass of vino (not the animals, just me) and enjoyed the show.  Usually we would all be awake for the first hour.

What's a "Roosevelt?"

What’s a “Roosevelt?”

And then slowly, one by one some of us would check out.

Why are there no kitties in this show?

Why are there no kitties in this show?

Until eventually only two of us would remain awake.

Buster thinks 4 terms is excessive.

Just sayin'

The following Monday I had to return my foster kittens so they could be “fixed” and find forever homes.  I will miss them very much.

Can we bring this tree with us?

Can we bring this tree with us?

To console me, I think someone should buy this STEIFF animal for me.

ONLY $250.00!!!

Tama is in Germany, where they make these so maybe she can get a good deal.  Get on it woman!

  1. Teddy was no friend to animals although he was a friend to the US park system and environmental preservation. Damn these ambiguous icons!
