Cleaning Out the Closet

Many of you will remember the junk closet that Sweet Praline liked to hide in.  Mom Paula has agreed to let us share this picture again.  There was a lot of junk in here, as well as some good stuff!  Mom Paula's dad built these shelves for her when she was still a college professor.  But once she left teaching, things just piled up.


When Sweet Praline left for the Bridge last April, Mom Paula slowly started purging all of the "old" stuff in the closet, but could never find the time, energy, or emotional support to clean it out.  We loved playing in this junk closet because Mom Paula couldn't find us.


With our help, Mom Paula has begun working on the junk closet with the following results.
 Where are all of my hidey places?

Little Sister, something is amiss here!

Even though we no longer have all of the "junk" on the floor, we're proud of Mom Paula.  For the first time in years, she can actually close the door.  She still needs to digitize all of those accompaniment cassette tracks, but that will take a while.  Now to work on the pile of papers on the chair!

Mom Paula needs to give herself a pat on the back! It looks great. Prolly not as much fun to play in, but that tower of papers in the chair could be!

Yup Mom Paula did really well with that closet. Truffle, you didn't knock that whole pile of papers down did you?? We loved the pictures of Praline in the closet hiding. Take care and have a great week.

P.S. Mom says your piano tuner is going to use some bad language when he comes, so you should cover your ears.

Mom Paula is at least making some headway on that closet. We are sure you to will find many more hiding places.

Humans! Sigh. They just can't help themselves from ruining all of the fun spots in our homes. Now look at that--that was a purrfectly wonderful spot for two generations of beloved kitties! And now? Well, now, it's just a boring old closet with the door shut. Tsk tsk tsk.
