Tattle Tail Tuesday - The Royal Deck

Mommy and I had a little argument about posting this photo. I won. She couldn't believe that Daddy brought a TV out to the deck so he could watch the Cubs play baseball and lay on the lounger and do guy things like drink beer and say bad words when the Cubs did not win. Diamond thought that it was great fun and we kitties wandered in and out all day. You can see me way in the background. Rudy tried to stay on Daddy's lap since he was still trying to suck up all of the sympathy in our three surrounding counties. Puff and Powder went between the deck and the kitchen where Mommy cooked a meatloaf, had a glass of wine and watched movies in between cooking. Mommy said that we look like a bunch of, well, I can't say what she said, but she suggested that we would not mix well with the royal family.

I don't know I bet even the royals drink a beer on the balcony every now and again.

Meatloaf and wine for dinner sounds posh to us!!

Smooches

I am not letting my dad see this photo because he would think this is a good idea.

Wow! An outside TV? That sounds like more relaxing and snuggle time. What a great idea!!

Mickey said...

We think your Daddy is very SMART. Mommy would love to have a TV and computer outside. She loves being outdoors. She 'borrows' Daddy's laptop sometimes and takes it outside. ~S, S & C

Princess said...

It is good to let it all hang out... in your own special way. Manbeans seem to take that to an extreme.
Mombeans are always always busy

<3 Happy toozday

Lux said...

Who wants to mix with any old royal family, anyway? ;-)

Sounds like you all had a fun time!

Angus Mhor said...

Commoners! That's what we are, yep! But, you know, I have a sneaking suspicion that Harry and Will and Charles wish they could sit out on the deck and drink beer and yell at the Cubs, too!

I like meatloaf!

Eric and Flynn said...

That looks like fun. Mum says if we ever get any sun, she would take her laptop outdoors.

Daisy said...

Good times, yes, good times!

Marian said...

T.V. and beer on the deck does not really appeal to us. However, meatloaf in the kitchen sounds awfully special. Any leftovers????

We think your dad had the right idea. The nice days of summer are fading fast and he is smart to take advantage of them that way.

Purrageous Pirates said...

That looks like something our Daddy would do!! We had a TV on our screened porch for a very long time, complete with satelitte hookup, and it drove Mommy nuts!!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

We wouldn't worry about hanging out wif da royals...dey seem to haf a lot of fambly prollems. Mom would so take advantage of haffing a balcony wif a t.v. on it. Watching a movie outside would be like heaven to her.

Nice setup for a fall afternoon, but better when your team wins.

catsynth said...

Sounds like fun. We sometimes take the laptop out on the patio, that's kinda like a TV, right? ;)

The Meezers said...

that looks like fun to watch TV on the deck!

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

Parker, it sounds you all had a great day! Your Daddy had the right idea being outside too, 'specially since he was watching the Cubs and probably did have to yell at them ... hee hee! Our Daddy drinks his beer and yells at the Cardinals and the Rams too when they screw up too! It is a guy thing, that's for sure!

Sounds like your Daddy is just very creative!

The Furry Kids said...

What is this meatloaf that you keep talking about??? I must have some! Maybe I should come and live with you. I think Mom's depriving me of all that meaty delicious-ness.

We think your Dad has a great idea!

Your pal,
Titus

Did you get to eat some meatloaf? I love meatloaf and our mom hasn't made it for a long long time!

JB's Big World said...

You guys have a great deck, but shouldn't a BBQ be there in place of the TV? Maybe you could have your dad BBQ you some salmon next time and not watch tv?

Who cares if you would mix well with the royal family? They like woofies anyway.

Sweet Praline said...

My mom loved this. It's something she would do for college football. When they are tailgating at the South Carolina home football games, they all sit around outside of the RV watching other football games.

Shadow / Molly said...

The mom says it would be a great thing for when the kids were here and loud - tv outdoors! Heh, we'd like it too, it would be much more quiet.

Camie's Kitties said...

We think your dad had the right idea. A lot of beans are now adding outdoor rooms that have TVs included, so your dad is just jumping on the bandwagon.
