Thursday Tales

As you may know, my SS is an archaeologist. However, besides having worked in Cambodia she has nothing in common with a certain celebrated character known as Lara Croft. Therefore, the picture below is purely in my imagination….


For starters, she doesn’t take me to the field. Secondly, she really digs, rather than gallivants glamorously around the countryside looking for ‘treasures’. Her treasures are broken bits of ceramics.
Actions? Yes, she has to climb across masonry in ruins, jump across stream, into ditches and trudge across deserts and jungles but never with a pistol strapped on her thigh or swing from trees. Sorry to say but this is the usual mundane action ….


Incidentally, this was taken in the moat outside the northern city wall of Angkor Thom. There you go, I wasn’t telling tales, she did work there!

Wow Momo, it's very cool that your SS is an Archaeologist, we didn't know that. I'm sure she's had such interesting adventures even if they weren't of the Lara Croft kind...(And thanks so much for your purrs and support, I'm back in business now and up to my usual tricks again!)

Mr Puddy said...

Miss Momo, Your SS is cool, and I think we cats are cool and we are one of the kind of Archaelogist too, We love Dig ! I think you know what I really mean..Ha..Ha..Ha
( I hope your SS don't get mad at me, I just can't help myself..heh..heh..heh )

Any tunas in that moat?

The Island Cats said...

Momo, your SS might not be an action hero, but we think she has a pretty cool and interesting job all the same!!

does she have lara croft like lips?

ArtemisiaFSS said...

We thinks SS lives a very interesting life and gets to go to many interesting places even if her adventures aren't Lara Croft style.

Our youngest boy bean is majoring in history and has to have a minor. One of the minors he is considering is archaeology. He is also considering geography, geology, sociology, political science and anthropology. We are anxious to see which one he chooses. He goes for orientation at his university tomorrow.

Momo, we think that is a very very cool story.

Our mum wanted to be an archaeologist when she was little. She used to set up digs in the hallway with string, and bury 'dinosaur bones' for discovery.

Marg said...

Wow, that is terrific about your SS Momo. That sounds like a really interesting job. Momo, that is too bad you don't to get to help with the digging. Hope you have a really fun day.

Brian said...

That really is very cool! If I dig up old stuff I get in trouble!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

We think it is very exciting that that is what your SS does. We loved the photos that we got from her for Cheysuli to visit!

Fage said...

New to your blog! Look forward to your posts!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

I think being an archaeologist sounds like fun, even without all the Lara Kroft hoodoo. Although I prefer being an entomologist myself.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

What an interesting job SS has! Much better than my mom's job.

OKcats said...

Our mom thinks being an archaeologist would be fascinating! But our mom is far too lazy for that line of work, sadly. Or maybe that's good - she'd have to leave us to dig, right?

ABBY said...

MoMO your SS has a very interesting profession and we bet she has lots of interesting stories to tell.

SS is so cool!!

Willow said...

Momo I think that is better that Archaelogy is not the same as Lara Croft. Then you would always have to worry about her getting in trouble with dangerous forces.

Kwee Cats said...

Momo! Our Mumsy studied Archeology for a while. But we gots, well, she's gots a cousin that's an Anthropologist! He leads digs and writes books. He's at the University of Illinois at Urbana. Your Mum gets to do some really neat stuff!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

SS sure does get around. She must be very patient and dedicated to go to distant lands and do such detail work.

Batu said...

How exciting! A real archaeologist. Vicki studied archaeology at Uni and has visited many sites in Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Germany, France, England and more recently Peru. But she did these as a tourist not as a digger! Very impressive.
Vicki also thanks you for the kind wishes and is on the mend now.

Hi Momo! We just wanted to let you know us Kwee Cats visited Sunny and Sky. We told them you'd sent us over and that we real glad to get to meet them. We are logged in on our Mumsy's account right now, but just wanted to be sure and thank you for introducing us to two so very sweet new friends.

Have a good day, Momo, and we will see you later, pretty girl.

The Furry Bambinos said...

An Archaeologist! Wow, how cool is that! Our Mom just digs in the dirt to plant stuff. But she isn't very careful when she digs!

Thank You So Much for the birthday wishes for Sunny and Sky! And Thank You for all of your support alerting the blogosphere to our fundraiser! What a sweetheart you are!

Purrs,
Padre, Panda Bear, Meerkat, Cookie, Caramel, Sunny, and Sky (& fosters Jett, Panda, and Domino)

Hi Momo! We wanted to come and tell you a special thank you for coming to Pungy's Birthday Party. We are also bringing you a yum-box with some shrimps, tuna, and niptinis we had left over we thought you'd like. We'll just leave them right here for you. Those movies were a lot of fun, weren't they?

Our Mumsy is going to be working this weekend on something special we'll let you know about in the next day or so.

Till then, have a good weekend. And thank you, Momo, we sure are glad you enjoyed the Party.

(((Hugs))) to you sweet Momo.

SAS....Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

Our mama has always wished she had been able to go to college and study to be an archeologist, but at the time it just wasn't possible....life dealt her other things. Now that it is finally possible, she knows that it isn't practical.

We thank you for wishing Andy a pre-happy birthday and are sad that your mama will be gone....will you be with your grandmama????

We love you MoMo.
