Memorial Day Sparks






 Even though McGuffy's reader is taking a break, we are continuing our Monday Sparks posts!  From the original Sparks posts:

Welcome to Sparks. Many years ago, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed other people's spirit as well. Life got busy, and this fell by the wayside. Now, I feel a strong need to bring this feature back. 
The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy and peace. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change. 
I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!
I hope you will join us. Please link up a positive quote, thought, poem, or verse. The badge and code can be found in my sidebar. Add the badge to your post to invite others. The more, the merrier. I welcome your thoughts. Peace.

The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky

 


Periwinkle woke up and lounged in her bed when she remembered it was Tuesday.  She hopped out, groomed her furs, and ran to the Teleportation Tunnel to await the arrival of her boyfriend. Stinky.  She didn't have to wait long because the tunnel started to shake and, with a WOOSH, he popped out.  They spent time whisker kissing, paw patting, and catching up on the events of the last week.  Periwinkle mentioned that they were having record heat at her house so they were staying there in the cool air conditioning.  Stinky was fine with that since it was much hotter than it was at his house.

Before Stinky could even ask what their plan was, Periwinkle said "I know we've done this before, but it's impawtent to remind our readers that hurricane season starts June 1.  Many of our readers live in areas where they could be impacted by a storm."

She continued, "Here's the list of possible storm names this year."


"I'm glad none of them are our names," said Stinky.  They giggled at the thought of Hurricane Periwinkle or Hurricane Stinky but also didn't want to be associated with anything bad.

Having done her research, Periwinkle began to outline things that should be done to prepare.  "First, don't wait till the last minute.  Your Moms and Dads should start getting things before there is a huge rush.  Nobody wants to run out of noms or litter in a storm."  Stinky agreed and added "and treats!  It would be awful not to have treats."  Periwinkle smiled because she knew how much he liked treats.  Stinky was impurressed by the amount of canned and dry noms Periwinkle had.  She told him that her Mom was obsessed with making sure there were plenty of cans of food since the shortage during Covid.  You should also make sure you rotate the food so that it doesn't expire.


Of course, water is impawtent too.  You should have one gallon per person/pet per day. 


"Of course, our Moms and Dads have to eat too so they should have a good stock of non-perishable items in case the power goes out.  We also have a generator, an outside grill, and charcoal."





"If your Mom and Dad can't do without their morning coffee, this is a cool way to make it" Periwinkle added.


"Don't forget fuel for the generator" said Stinky.

Periwinkle went on, "If you live on the coast, you might want sandbags or water barriers.  Our Mom has these. You fill them with water and put them by your doors to keep water out."



Periwinkle added, "Batteries and lanterns should also be on hand (or paw)."


"As much as we don't like being in the PTU, we need to have them handy in case we have to evacuate."  Stinky also said medicines and important papers should be ready to go too.  Having to take medicine for his seizures made him very aware of this.

"You should also know the difference between a Hurricane watch and a warning.  This is a cute way to remember for any kind of storm said Periwinkle."



All the talk about noms and treats made the tabbies hungry so Periwinkle's Mom served them some delicious Fancy Feast.

While they had their snack they continued to talk about what needed to be done.  Periwinkle had a good graphic to show what is required and added that in Florida there would be tax-free times to buy these items.


They also giggled at some cute memes about hurricanes.


After their snack, the tabbies took a short nap and then it was time for Stinky to head home.  They whisker kissed, paw patted and snuggled before he had to go.  Stinky entered the Teleportation Tunnel and blew a whisker kiss to Periwinkle and said "Let's hope all those storms stay FAR away."  Periwinkle smiled and nodded her head in agreement.  After he left, she went to her Mom and reminded her that they needed to get their kit together.
