Who We Are

Friday, June 02, 2017


Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  As I mentioned yesterday, we are back into our wonderful Spring routine!  This being Kansas, although our mornings are cool (70s, 80s), it gets toasty in the afternoon!

We here at Ao4 Headquarters have a long, long history of how Siberians best deal with the heat.  Our great-brother Dave even wrote one of his famous Haik-Woos about it!  Yes, I'm talking about the very same tip I shared with you a couple years ago -- laying on the air conditioning vent!

Allow me to demonstrate:

"Let's fire this baby up, Mom!"

It's THE best way to stay cool!  If you throw in a Sad Eyes Look like that, there's no way they can refuse you!

Be cool, everyone!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. Oh Maggie, you are truly an expert. Stay cool,


  2. We have the noisy window units. How we wish we had central aire, Maggie!

  3. What a perfect way to stay cool Maggie! We are pretty lucky here and it rarely gets above 70 so we don't need A/C!

  4. Maggie, I think that is a fabulous idea! Of course having a fan nearby might make it even better. It's cloudy here but already in the 70's, so feeling pretty humid.
    Have a fantastic weekend.

  5. You're pretty clever Maggie. Maybe it's time to fill up your pool again!

  6. Maggie and what a great way to get extra oxygen. Just tell mom you are acting as an a/c deflector...making sure the a/c goes to her promptly
    Love the links you provided
    Hugs madi your bfff

  7. We think that is just being smart! Getting in the pool is another idea!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  8. We have wall mounted air conditioning units which are high up, so I can't lie over them, but it is nice to lie in the downdraught !

  9. no no....you need to be ON the vent - trust us on this :)

  10. Ahhhhh - that is my favorite spot in the whole house!!! I am trying very hard to keep Misty from discovering the joy of my cool vent.

  11. I must be part you. I need AC
    Edward (& Lily)

  12. But what pretty sad eyes! Yes they want to cool off like us

  13. That's an excellent idea.

  14. you've got the prime real estate there, Maggie! and we bet with that look of yours, you are cool now :) we wish our cold air blowy machine vents were on the floor. at least we have one that we can reach in the penthouse.

  16. We don't need any AC around here to stay cool lately. It was 48 degrees when we woke up this morning and the calendar says it's June! It sure doesn't feel like it.

    Hi Maggie! What a great idea, we're going to have to try that. It's starting to get toasty here. ~Belle Pup

  18. Our mom hasn't turned on the AC yet! We are so HOT here!
