What number d'ja dial?
 
Yours.
 
Good morning @Stephie !
 
My, you're up late! Morning, @ElmerCat!
 
Yes, I'm usually up late — not a "morning person".
Is your cat feeling better?
 
Yup. Sleept for 2 1/2 days with only quick bathroom and snack breaks. Now back to his usual schedule. Loved that all family was home yesterday.
 
5:32 AM
I'm very glad to hear that!
 
Is it a "normal work day" for you?
 
Yes, but I usually go into the office later in the afternoon.
 
Ah. Yesterday was a holiday here, so many took today off.
Hubby included!
 
Cinco de Mayo?
 
Ascension of Christ. Is that the same?
Let me google....
 
5:39 AM
Oh no, I don't think so. It's a Mexican holiday, but it just might be related somehow.
 
Erm, no. Cinco de Mayo is different.
It's about some battle or so, says Wikipedia.
Ok, so learned something new this morning. Thanks, @ElmerCat!
How's Henry?
 
@Stephie And as I see, Ascension Day is not always on the same date.
 
No. Really early this year.
 
Oh, that Henry! — He's just so Henry!
 
What did he do? Sounds like a story...?
 
5:45 AM
No, that's just the way he is — he's just so Henry!
 
LOL!
Here, tables and kitchen counters are absolutely off limits, but if Chester was an indoors only cat, it would be different.
 
No cats on the counter! — Henry abides by that rule, but the table is allowed sometimes.
 
Currently he's into flies - jumping through the grass trying to catch them.
 
Henry loves to catch flying insects!
 
@ElmerCat he came inside once through the kitchen window, which means he suddenly stood on the counter - down in a flash and clearly suffering from a bad conscience...
Oh, time to start my day - I could sleep in today but now it's breakfast time. I need caffeine ^_^
Sleep well, @ElmerCat!
 
6:05 AM
Thank you, @Stephie ! — Have a nice day!

Cinco de Mayo (in the US) is just another nation's appropriated holiday used as an excuse to get drunk... like St. Patrick's Day.

@Catija When I was a kid it definitely seemed legitimate.
St. Patrick's Day still seemed silly but they actually made an effort in school for Cinco de Mayo to let us know what it was.

@Jefromi I don't remember doing anything special for Cinco de Mayo when I was a kid...
 
9:09 PM
@Catija We had things in school, maybe a little generic as things for kids often are, but with some "here's what we're celebrating".
I don't remember too well, I'm talking about elementary school.
 
Ah. Yeah... I don't remember much from back then... all those centuries ago. :P
