More Cute Codee
Eventually he wore himself out, however, and once that happened the crash was almost immediate. He landed in the windowsill and just kind of flopped down right where he was standing. He kept making these little squeaking noises in his sleep which was just too cute for words and he was out pretty much until Snackers got home from work. Impressive. I'm so jealous.
Well Casper is still more interested in Codee from a distance but every once in a blue moon he'll venture in for a close-up sniff. He'll still hiss and occasionally yowl at Codee under circumstances that only he understands. Piper, on the other hand, has become Codee's new favorite play toy and he follows her around the house batting at her tail almost endlessly. Sometimes I think she wags it just because she knows it entertains him to chase it around and get smacked in the face by it. He is a noisy little bugger though; he mews in his sleep, mews when he's hungry, mews when he wants some lovin' and mews when he's playing. Most of all he's learning to mew when he wants to know where we are and then we say "Codee, Codee, Codee" and he comes running toward the sound of our voices.

Line Dancing: I learned two things tonight not counting a few dances that I had to re-learn from youtube videos. First, I learned that I can no longer do the original cotton eyed joe dance that I learned at the dance factory in St. George. It's all hoppy and I just don't have the balance or leg strength for it ... and to think that I used to do that dance in HEELS! The second thing that I learned is that, for some reason, there are over a dozen different versions of dances for the cotton eyed joe and none of the ones that I found on youtube are the version that I know. In my version everyone links arm and arm in short lines of four or five people per line and then you form a big giant circle, like a windmill, around the dance floor with the lines. So you're in a line facing the line in front of you, they're facing the line in front of them and so on. Then you hop backward four times while kicking the foot that you're not hopping on out in front of you twice per each hop. Then you quick-step forward eight times and start over hopping backward again. The fun in the dance is that it's fast, hard to do, and you have to rely on the other people in your line to keep you on your feet while you're keeping them on their feet all while trying to avoid running over the people in the line behind you and being run over by the people in the line in front of you. Trust me, it really is fun. Complex but FUN!
