Cats - papa - Anna had a Tuesday

RRRRIIINGGG - Anna's Allarm Clock at 5:55 RRRRIIINGGG - papa's allarm bell at 6:25

Tuesday Morning. Raining. Dark. Very chilly (10 C - brrr)). Believe it or not: 4 hungry Cats - outside. mieeiuw.

Rosa and Felicia came down their secrete path - during the Night. Both were wet.

Some breakfast - a banana for papa, coffee for Anna - lot's of food for the Cats. In and out.

Then rush out. OMG - it's steep. Picked up the Morning Paper. Papa started the Car. We listened to the local Radio: The Train leaving from yyyy to xxx - sorry: Due to lack of --- - it will be cancelled What then? The Express Bus - yeah- But can we reach it? - Anna did, papa not (had to park the car)

Papa went to his dentist in the middle of the Day. USD 400. And 2 hours away from work. Public Transportation.

Afternoon - returning from job?
With Train - in the Oslo area? Haha. We have a left-green goverment that have promised all public communications have the highest priority due to the global warming. But what happens?
Trains can not run - it's called problems with signals.
Busses - stand up and be very patient - forget the timetable
Cars - bump bump - at least you can sit dry and listen to the Radio, own Music or ---

What should have taken 18 minutes ended up with nearly 2 hours.
It's called Green Transportation. Less CO2. Cars and busses standing still, with Motors running. Hmmm?
Papa and Anna says: Stop Talking. Start Doing.

purrr purrr - you humans are mioooow miuooopid,
says Rosa and Felica. They know.

ps. I think I'll just go out in our Garden and hunt for a Mouse, or something. Says our Cats.
But when finnishing this post, Felicia jumped down from the ceiling and want me to go to bed.

What a long trip home. I'm sorry that it took so long. At the end of a workday it's time to get home and relax...no fooling around about it either. I hope tomorrow is much better. Big hug to you and Anna. :)

Public transport- very good. Unfortunately ours is very poor here in Indianapolis. I hope it will improve.

Ah, the dentist. I hope your teeth are in tip top shape now.

You are already back to work ?? Isn't that a bit early ?? Our public transportation to safe the planet is also a catastrophe ! Expensive, not enough connections and buses and you have to have the patience of a buddah to wait for one ! and every day you can hear "Take public transport" !
BTW I wrote about the Royal Palace here on my Countries & Cities blog. Imagine I didn't even know that there was an archeological site under the palace ! Blogging makes me intelligent and I learn a lot about my city !!

I know the feeling all too well, Tor. Our supposed good transportation on our island can often be chaos, at best. Ugh . . .

Amazing what Governments do, talk and that's all... Time to get them out and put someone else in, but will they be much better? You sound like you have the same faith in politicians as we do down here...none!

It sounds like it is causing more pronlems than solving them! And I know it has to be terribly frustrating trying to get around and finding only "Hurry Up & Wait"....So much for a Green Day....lol!

Such a cute picture of one of your kitty's, Tor.....Hope you had a good day...Mine is just beginning here....Though I will probably go bavk to sleep for one more Sleep Segment...!
Amd, thanks for the mention, my dear.....You got around to a lot of people in spite of not having a great deal of time to do so.

I hate going to the dentist. I had to have my bridge replaced a few months ago to the tune of $2,000.00!

I'm glad that you are feeling better!

Tor - I hear you about public transport and it not working... When it happens, everything stops..

Funny story but it's great that you are reading so much and thanks for the mention and all of the links. :)

IT's still around 21C or so in the day, about 13 at night... maybe a bit more..

Oh Tor....so sorry for your long trip home. I'm always amazed at how beautifully you handle all the traveling ups and downs since you travel around quite a bit.

Thank you so much for the very nice mention on your blog. It's always nice to get some "Link Love." Take care my dear friend.... Hugs, Joy
