Christmas Party

BBBH and I attended our first Christmas Party of the Season Sunday afternoon and evening. It was hosted by her son, Curt and his wife, Linda.
The creature pictured is a resident in the household. He is the very definition of the term "Fat Cat" in my opinion. I mean that is a huge cat, no offense to the 47 pounds of Stripey Goodness who resides in the Chicago Metro Area. I attempted to photograph this Beast, who refused to pose, so this is what we have. The Cat is black. The frame of the collage is the actual color of the cat (center picture lower row), notwithstanding that the flash tended to highlight some of his undertones.
The party? All the offspring of BBBH were present, along with spouses and some offspring. Food was consumed, football was watched, games were played and gifts were exchanged. Perhaps a good time was had by all. No poll was taken.

That's no cat--it's an ottoman!!

How nice to have parties already. I love that about the next two weeks--it's just a good excuse to see all of your family and friends. Wish they would just set Christmas and New Year's on a Thursday so we would have the weekend for more get togethers. I guess that wouldn't work though, eh? :(

A party from a cat's point of view - Sniff, sniff, sniff????

Lin, I guess congress could roll those holidays into the uniform Monday holiday thing. Might spark a bit of controversy, though. ;-)

Grace, exactly how a cat "enjoys" interlopers in his realm!

"Perhaps a GTWHBA" I love it... I think that's a likely description of many holiday events. That's a great cat... as in "of great size."

Marydon, thank you, and a Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Shark, the passive voice has its uses. And it is a great (big) cat!
