Tour Down Under: my thoughts

The Tour Down Under started just near our place on Thursday, so Lynettea went to see it. She said she didn't think cats were allowed. to go. I was not sorry to miss it, as lots of people were walking past our house to go to the street breakfast party, and crowds make me nervous.
Lynettea said, 'I will take a photo of any cats attending or riding bikes, so you can still enjoy it, Sasha.'
There weren't any cats taking part of course, but lots of cyclists in colourful lycra outfits.  The whole road was blocked off and little canopies set up with chairs, so you could sit down to have breakfast. There were even sections of artificial grass. I might have liked to see that, but  bikes make me nervous and I prefer to look at them through the window.
Lots of cyclists came to view the start of the Tour Down Under.

This is the front of the Tour, with the bikes behind the car.

A view of the cyclists as they rush past the cheering crowd.
 And now for my news. Lynettea ordered some books from Amazon. They arrived in a box inside a big bag, which we thought was rather odd. The book I wanted most arrived the next day. It was 'Dear Sparkle' Cat-to-cat advice from the world's foremost FELINE columnist. I had been waiting impatiently for it to get here. Lynettea says she will read some of it to me and help me with the words if I can't understand them all.
This is me helping Lynettea unwrap some books she ordered me from Amazon.

Yay! I hope you enjoy my book, Sasha! Make sure your human does not look at it unsupervised! She may need help from you to understand it.

Wow, Sasha! That Tour Down Under does sound pretty neat, but we, too, would have been kind of scared of that crowd. We read Sparkle's book -- we bet you will LOVE it! :)

Hugs to you, Lynettea, Millie and The Pond Fish
