Seeing double

Hey, there. Oh, yes, we’ve got plans. An aside, don’t you think I could model for toothpaste companies? Staff says, “No” but RC Cat is encouraging although I thought she mumbled something about glue/paste. Cats. Double trouble.©

No, not because of too many head injury crashes.

No, not because of too many TV split-screen eye whiplashes.

No, not because of too much saké .

No, not from marathon dotty domino challenges, any overload of ghost peppers, or too much treadmill incline Definitely not that.

A double play of moi, Molly Malamute! My present to Mouse on her Mirthday. (And I shall try doubly hard not to step on the back of her flip-flops today….only today. Not doubling that offer.)

Double trouble from that RC Cat who jumped up far too early announcing that as a special treat, Staff could get up and served HRH breakfast far before normal time – which would give Staff more time before lunch is served. See? A gift of time!

You can double back for a second look at any other posts. It’s allowed.

Doubly good,

Molly, the Marvelous Malamute

It’s true. Today I’m blogging post bookends…. moving ones…like the croquet hoops in Alice and Wonderland and the Red Queen. What was all that hooping about there anyway? Probably the Cheshire Cat. You know how cats are. Look, squirrel! (And the nosy German trying to barge into the photo session.)©

    Happy Mirthday to your Mouse!… and could you please take my appointment with the dentist? I think it would be a short one and with not much green papers, your teeth look pawfect :o)

    Happy Mirthday!!!!!

      More mirth! (Very happy to see you peeking out – weather’s been such a worry…not to mention those driverless cars zooming around you now – seen on yet?) Thanks for chortling along


      • Beth / Nov 18 2015 8:49 pm

        I haven’t seen one yet, but I’m very eager to. It will be interesting (scary?)


        • philosophermouseofthehedge / Nov 18 2015 11:01 pm

          Pictures! Selfies! Demand a ride. (These will be cheaper than Uber during “special events/peak times? HA HA)
          We always run after and wave at the Google maps cars.
          Interesting/scifi scary indeed

    Happy Mirthday, Mouse! There’s not much more mirthful than a smiling pup. Except maybe a smiling pup with German snout photobomb.

      RC calls the German that doggy with the long poking dolphin nose. Quite handy she is with it. Thanks for the cheers and smiling along!

    Happy Birthday…er, I mean…Mirthday to Mouse. And yes, those are some lovely canines on the canine!

    Happy mirthday! What a great present! Yanked out of bed early so you have extra time. Cats are the best.


    • philosophermouseofthehedge / Nov 18 2015 12:49 am

      Yes. Ever seen this quote: ““What sort of philosophers are we, who know absolutely nothing of the origin and destiny of cats?”
      (Henry David Thoreau, Thoreau Journal 9)? Cats have our number for sure. Thanks for adding to the mirth

    Best wishes PMOTH… Like Molly and RC I enjoy the flow-on benefits of birthdays; why should just one person have all the fun. I hope there’s cake involved 🙂


    • philosophermouseofthehedge / Nov 18 2015 12:52 am

      Nothing like being able to have a nice relaxing lunch at a favorite local spot on the water without huge weekend tourist crowds. We are so spoiled. Thanks for joining the mirthful joy!

    Happy Birthday dear Mouse. That dog of yours sure does have nice teeth. If she doesn’t get the gig for the toothpaste commercial, she’d be a hit in Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Woof– oops, I mean, Wolf.

      HA! We have considered her for a Little Red Riding Hood Halloween partner. She does have some chompers…really functional, too. She should be a dog toy tester.Thanks for smiling along

    Happy Mirthday, Mouse! Although I don’t think Molly and RC Cat quite get the idea of how you’d like to celebrate it! 🙂


    • philosophermouseofthehedge / Nov 18 2015 1:03 am

      But their hearts are in the right place. Nothing like furry fanclub. Thanks for joining the mirthful crowd

    Birthdays are always so fun. Damn spell check won’t let me write Mirth!! Changed it three times and now I give up. You get the picture. Speaking of pictures, Ms. Molly is divine!! Not so “long in the tooth” as they say.


    • philosophermouseofthehedge / Nov 18 2015 1:05 am

      With hot days making an exit, Molly is perking up. Nothing like a cool breeze to sniff. Thanks for joining the smiles

    Happy Mirthday!! What a great set of chompers… not to mention those large nostrils.


    • philosophermouseofthehedge / Nov 18 2015 1:07 am

      Wind – real cool winter’s coming winds. Gotta sniff and smile.Thanks for adding to the mirth! (Hope the weather system is sliding past you guys easily) Thanks for jumping into this mirth

    Very cute 🙂


    • philosophermouseofthehedge / Dec 4 2015 2:54 pm

      Sometimes you just need a quick simple post…and those pictures are pretty smilie. Thanks for grinning along

    We’re belatedly wishing Molly of the Splendid Smile: Happiest of Mirthdays!

    From the Princesses 👑 Pickles and 👑 Mila and Typist 🖥 Me (no fancy hat).

    Look! A double dose of mirth! Thanks
