Luke and the beach

This is Luke. As you can see by this pic of his usual sleeping position (on my chair no less), that his is not your normal run of the mill cat. He is by far one of the weirdest cats I have ever had. He freaks out if he sees the bottom of the bowl, he won't leave you alone until you refill it. He comes when he is called and is scared of just about everything (one time he did bitch slap a little Shih Tzu that a friend brought over) . We got him from the Anti-Cruelty Society. They named him and since I am a huge Star Wars nerd, I kept the name. I keep threating to take him back, like when your parents threaten military school to straighten you up. I could never bring myself to do it. What can you say he's family.

We decided to have a little picnic at the Montrose Beach today. It was Maggie's first time at the beach. She was looking around at everything, even those beach rats with wings called seagulls. You can tell by the look on her face that she is thinking very hard about what everything is. She is a very serious child. I put her in the water and let the "waves" (this is Lake Michigan after all) come over her feet. She had no idea what was happening and I got the lip for it. She only cried a little and was all right as soon as daddy picked her up.

Then we went back at let her play in the sand (at least most of it was sand being in Chicago and all). She is really into felling stuff with her feet and she sat there for a good minute before she reached down with her feet and tried to eat the sand.

We all had a great time at the beach. Hope to do it again soon. I can't wait until she is a little older so I can take her to some of the beaches in the Pacific and the Caribbean that I grew up around. I hope to travel with my kids as much as I got to travel growing up.

Back to being a SAHD for the next three days. My wife is gone from the house for 14 hours everyday so sometimes it can be a long day. But then again it can fly right by.

  1. You have a very cute daughter. I wish we had a beach to take our son to. Instead we go to the lake which is nice but no sand.

    By the way I think calling a cat weird is somwhere along the lines of calling snakes evil or calling grizzly bears scary.
