Noisy Rocky

Over the weekend, Thomas and I were sitting on the couch, watching TV, a folded blanket in between us. Rocky climbed up onto Thomas and then over him, making his way to this blanket. He spent several minutes attacking the blanket and fake attacking us.
Tired out from such exertion, he then decided to preen himself. In a previous post, I remarked that he is almost constantly making noise, which you can see in this video.

Rocky has decided that he does not want Thomas to wear anything red or orange. Unfortunately, Thomas owns a lot of red clothes.

Sunday afternoon, we were driving to see a play, when Thomas said to me, "Just so you know, Rocky and I are fighting right now because he doesn't like it when I wear red." The play was one that left us a little sad, and also made us appreciate the loved ones in our lives. In the car on the way back home, Thomas said, "I'm going to put on some blue clothes so Rocky and I can be friends again."

Sunday evening was very peaceful as Thomas and Rocky settled into their routine again.

Yep, sometimes it's worth not wearing red, just to make a friend feel good. Life is too short. Thanks for the reminder!

I tried to tell him that, but he can get stubborn on occasion. Rocky easily forgave him for this transgression!

Mary you have such a great way of telling stories, it always makes me smile.

Rocky is hilarious make those noises while he preens.

And then the little spat between him and Thomas...lol!
