    Much has happened in the world of Grahamn Kracker and the Kracker Kats since I last posted in this blog in 2009. I am not going to try to update or start posting on a regular basis, but I got a little worried that if I didn't make a new post then sooner or later Google might delete this blog and the record I created with it. So I make this post just to help ensure this does not happen. Up until December, 2013, I did continue to blog at wasillaalaskaby300.squarespace.com through the end of...
  • Kitty cats and Mormon missionaries

    I heard a knock upon my door the other evening and opened it to find two Mormon missionaries standing upon the porch. So I invited them in to meet the cats. Here they are, the young Elder Smith and the young Elder Wadsworth, posing with Royce, who is very old, even though he is younger than they. Muzzy comes to get in the picture. He terrifies the missionaries, so I have to take him to the garage. Martigny comes to bless them with her presence. The missionaries wanted to baptize the two cats,...
  • Wry, Royce and cheese - the love story between the orange cat and the baby-turned-toddler-turned-little boy continues

    Wry grows ever more articulate. In the evening, I point my camera towards him and he suddenly shouts, "Cheese!" Another word in his vocabulary! But where did he pick it up from? I never tell anyone to say cheese. To do so would be to violate my photographic technique. It must have happened at day care. At dare care, he gets his picture taken every day for the class on-line newsletter. The picture taker must have told him to say, "cheese!" Wry and Royce. Wry gives Royce a smooch. After the...
  • Charlie the cat man comes to visit

    Charlie understands cats and they understand him. Here he is with Royce, both observing the same thing. Royce needed a good brushing. Charlie gave it to him. A bit later, little Wry came along, carrying socks. Little Wry raises the socks into the air. What do you think he is thinking? What will happen next? Good grief! Royce is wearing socks! Royce goes to Tryskuit. Royce and Tryskuit. Royce relaxes by himself for awhile. Where is Charlie? Why, Charlie is with Jim!
  • Zed - the latest addition to the Kracker Cats

    Here is Nabysko with Zed - the latest addition to the Kracker Cats. You will recall that Bryce, Nabysko's boyrfriend, is allergic to cats. That's why they went so long without a cat. But finally they got Juniper and, despite a bit of extra suffering, Bryce wanted them to have two cats. Bryce liked Jim so much that he wanted that cat to be black. So, recently, they were down in Homer and they came up with this black kitten, Zed. They bought a big, fancy, air cleaner that is going all the time....
  • Royce grows old

    I hate to say it, but Royce is growing very old and ever more feeble. I don't know how much time we have left with him. Yesterday, Sunflower wondered if we should dig a hole in the backyard before freezeup. That could be any day now. Last year, it had happened by now. It is very hard to dig a grave back there, once the ground has frozen. Still, I don't think we will dig that hole now. Perhaps Royce can make it through another winter. I hope so. I think so. I'm not sure. Of course, we are...
  • A warm gathering between toddler, dad and cat ends in a high note

    Little Wry, Royce and Toast Ed were all snug and warm on the couch, enjoying each other's company. Little Wry was overcome with an innocent, sweet, expression. This is when a toddler is at his most dangerous. Suddenly, little Wry jumps up and kicks Dad... well, you know. Dad screams. Now little Wry drops down with his knee. Royce is worried, but holds his ground. Wry is very pleased. Royce ponders his own safety. Toast Ed squeaks out a few high notes.
