A New Adventure Awaits

As he is every Tuesday, Stinky is excited to share today’s adventure with girlfriend Periwinkle. After the snow yesterday, he’s happy the weather has improved. As he awaits her arrival, Stinky gathers what they will need. And finally, with the usual whoosh, Periwinkle tumbles out of the teleportation tunnel right into Stinky’s waiting paws.

After the usual hugs and whisker kisses, Periwinkle inquires about today’s adventure. Stinky replies that they won’t be going far, but they will use the teleportation tunnel, so they hop back in together.

At the Ice Rink

When they arrive at their destination, Periwinkle claps her paws together and proclaims, “Oh Stinky, this will be so much fun, but I am not certain I remember how to ice skate. The last time we skated was in Rockefeller Center when you asked me to be your girlfriend. Do you remember?”



“Of course, silly. That was one of the best days of my life,” Stinky replies and continues, “Let’s get on our skates, and then we can see if either one of us remembers what to do.”

“Stinky, these skates are so pretty. Did you get them for me? Can I keep them?”

“Of course, they are for you, and you can keep them. But since we probably will not be skating in Florida, you can leave them at my house,” Stinky replies.

Fun on Ice

After getting into their skates, they head to the rink. Periwinkle asks, “Stinky, will you push me around on one of those little seals?”

“Sure, that sounds like a good idea. I will be able to practice my balance. Then we can switch places.”










After skating with the seal, the tabbies feel secure enough to skate around on their own. Periwinkle tells Stinky, “I have been listening to that instructor with the little girl, and he keeps telling her to ‘push and glide.’”

Periwinkle tries the technique and in no time is wizzing around the little rink. Stinky yells to her, “Hey, slow down, speedy.”

When Stinky catches up to her, he is huffing and puffing, but he manages to ask,”Periwinkle, do you remember when your sisfur, Allie, and my brofur, Mau, went skating at Cat Scouts?”

“Oh, I sure do. They were so elegant.

When Stinky and Periwinkle get tired, they ask a couple of people if they will push them around on one of the skate sleds. The nice, young people are happy to help out the tabbies. Stinky and Periwinkle squeal in unison, “Weee,” and then break out in giggles.



Periwinkle and Stinky thank their “pushers” and do a bit more skating.

After a a few more laps around the rink, they both agree they are tired and are ready to head back to Stinky’s house for a warm drink, snack and nap.

After Skating

Once they have their skates off, Stinky starts running across the grass and yells to Periwinkle to follow him. Before she catches up, he has climbed a big, nearby sign. “Stinky, you just cannot help climbing on whatever you find,” Periwinkle says with an admonishing tone. But then she giggles again and climbs atop one of the letters as well.



They spend a little time chatting and watching the skaters until Periwinkle says that she really and truly is ready to leave. They climb down and paw-in-paw head to the teleportation tunnel. Before they can even catch their breath, they are back at Stinky’s house having a snack and visiting with his fursibs.

When they finish, Stinky invites Periwinkle to take a nap in the bed she sent him for Christmas. They curl up together and snooze until it is time for Periwinkle to head home.



With some final paw hugs and whisker kisses the tabbies say their “good-byes.” As Periwinkle enters the teleportation tunnel she waves to Stinky and then is gone in a whoosh. Stinky returns to his bed to dream about his beautiful girlfriend.

That was a fun date. You two look like Olympic skaters. I have always wanted to skate at Rockefeller Center, but unless they invent double blade skates for adults it isn’t going to happen. XO

WOW – now that looks like a lot of fun! My Mom told me that because some of our snow melted last night we would have an ice rink outside on our driveway so maybe I’ll try it out. On the other hand – I kind of like to be warm and toasty. I’ll have to think about it I guess….meanwhile I’ll take a nap!

Hugs, Teddy
