Sunday: Hili dialogue

It’s Sunday, June 5, I’m still in Boston, and on this day in history (1915) Denmark amended its constitution, giving women the right to vote. And on June 5, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy was shot in Los Angeles by Sirhan Sirhan, and died the next day.

Notables born on this day include the Scottish economist and philosopher Adam Smith(1723). Those who died on this day include the writer Stephen Crane (1900) the writer O. Henry (1910), Ronald Reagan (2004) and sci-fi author Ray Bradbury (2012), one of the few fantasy writers I read when I went through a sci-fi phase as a young teenager. Meanwhile in Dobrzyn, Hili is finding it hard to brain:

Hili: I was thinking for a long time.
Cyrus: And?
Hili: I got tired.


In Polish:
Hili: Długo myślałam.
Cyrus: I co?
Hili: Zmęczyłam się.

Here’s a photo of Cyrus getting washed this morning by Malgorzata and Hania, the daughter of the lodgers upstairs. He seems pretty complacent. But let me note that one of the many advantages of cats over d*gs is that cats wash themselves.


We have a Gus Monologue:

Gus: This grass is delicious!


Finally, in our series of Cats Sleeping in Uncomfortable positions, we have “Leo the Contortionist,” whose staff is reader Ed Suominen:

      Guszilla, King of the Nipsters*.

      *Not the German kind.

        Guszilla is great. I’ll add that to his pile of names, I think it will come in handy!
