Just another day on the island

Hey guys…Wally here. As expected…here’s what we were doing during the Eclipse of 2017. Just another ordinary day on the island for us.

The mom watched it. Yeah, she wore those special glasses so she wouldn’t go blind. She said that despite the fact we only had around 80% coverage and there were some clouds trying to ruin it, the eclipse was pretty cool to see. Eh…we’d rather sleep.

Did you watch the eclipse? What was it like for you? Or did you sleep through it just like us?

  1. Yep, I watched the eclipse using glasses and viewing boxes! Very, very cool! My co-workers and even folks from another company next door shared the moment together. Am glad that cats ignored it; there weren’t any cat-sized eclipse glasses to be had.

  2. The mom watched the eclipse and it was totally amazing. We slept through the whole thing. It was a total eclipse here and the end was just incredible. You all have a great day.

  3. from the right angle, she could have just watched you guys πŸ™‚

  4. I watched it. We had 93% coverage and it was pretty cool. Maybe I’ll have to drive to see totality for the one in 2024.

  5. We had better viewing in 2012 of the annular eclipse. Our aunt and uncle were in the path somewhere after a trip to WY for one of his family events, but we haven’t heard anything from them yet. They could still be stuck in a traffic jam for all we know! Really it’s our mom who gets excited with this stuff–we’d rather sleep.

  6. Boys, you two make a kissable eclipse xxx

  7. Us furbabies over here watched our mom stand outside in the yard, staring up at the sky with some weird head gear on. Humans are so strange sometimes. We think you two had the best plan, Wally and Ernie, napping away!

  8. We want to see a picture of her wearing silly glasses!

  9. didn’t have the glasses, but to me, it was just eerily darker…….a tad different than our normal cloudy days lol

  10. We slept. Mom watched the effects of the eclipse through the window, and it did get a bit darker. She didn’t look at the sun.

  11. We had clouds and it was only going to be 60 % so I didn’t bother.

  12. We were overcast, but it did get dark. Nature amazes me. Hugs.

  13. I slept through it, Angel watched Mommy watching it and Mommy enjoyed it very much. We were in the 100% range so she said it was amazing! My nap was pretty amazing too.


  14. Ya know.. if you had taken that picture from the side, the bright one would have been eclipsed by a big black, dot? MOL

  15. We had about 80% too. It was interesting how the sky darkened, sort of like dusk but not exactly. And the crickets started chirping. The cats did not really care. The dog seemed to wonder what was wrong with the stupid humans who kept putting on funny glasses and looking up at the skylights. πŸ™‚

  16. I watched and it was darn cool. I was surprised how dark it got so quickly. I am posting my video of the dark coming in on Thursday.

  17. Aw how sweet is this <3

  18. We sat on the window watching (the squirrel).

  19. Total eclipse eh? Well,Kali slept and I was checking out the Lane. Mom was freezing veggies. The weather made it impossible to see our 60% coverage of the sun. It was raining, cloudy, misty and smoky. All in all hard to see past the Lane.


  20. Hey you two therewas zilch in Europe so I slept too….

  21. This is a quaint picture of a sea village. I don’t really know but let’s guess at cOPENHAGEN, dENMARK.. Whoops mom’s finger slipped. MOL


  22. We tried to watch it but it was very cloudy and I didn’t see anything. Bummer.

  23. It got dark in our house about 2:45. We had 93% coverage and no clouds but the peeps didn’t have glasses they did go out on the covered porch and said in spite of the blue skies it kinda looked like it does light wise just before a thunder storm
    Hugs madi your bfff

  24. The crew all slept through it and the Momz never got the glasses so she missed out too! πŸ™

  25. That picture of the two of you is one of my absolute favorites! We know that no matter the momentary annoyances and brotherly nonsense … you both love each other πŸ™‚ And we won’t tell anyone … promise!

  26. The eclipse was pretty much a non-event here in southern California!

  27. Hi Mr Earnie and Mr Wally,
    I too slept through the eclipse. But Mommy is a geek and she works at a whole company of geeks…their bosses bought a whole bunch of the glasses and they all stood around in the parking lot staring at the sky (except for the 2 dozen of her co-workers who went to Oregon to see it at 100% (instead of the 90% here)
    Mommy thought it was totally cool!
    (Like I said…shes a GEEK!!!)

  28. We didn’t pay much attention. Mom and dad watched, and Dad took some cool shadow photos. We had 90 percent here. When it was at its peak, the crickets started chirping like crazy. Very weird but cool too. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

  29. Mudpie napped in the basement while I was working down there πŸ™‚ We’re waiting for the next one which will be 100% for us.

  30. Too many clouds for us, couldn’t see a thing.

  31. We had some clouds and no glasses so we watched the television coverage where it was 100% totality. The boys slept too!

  32. our mom was outside pruning some shrubbery between catching the eclipse progress with our viewing box, so we divided our time between watching her and napping πŸ™‚

    pip, smidgen, minnie, hollie, sharpie, ditto, TL

  33. We aren’t in a good part of the country for viewing and it was cloudy. We slept.

    You two look so snugly!

  34. We only had 75% here and MOm did not have glasses so no one watched it. Mom did see eclipse shadows in the sidewalk through the trees! That was way cool. You two look like a kitty eclipse!

  35. We saw it, and Mom tried to cuddle with me. But I think your cuddle pile looks much more comfy.

  36. Dog guy was outside with petcretary…and oops – he slid off the steps into the flowerbed. Must have been dozing in the dimmer light. Petcretary used to pinhole camera to catch a sight of it, but the clouds were thick most of the time.
    Pipo was snoozing…just like you guys, MOL!

  37. I’d much rather stare at you guys than the sky any day

  38. Thee Eclipse made mee a bit ‘crazypantss’ fur sum reason Wally an Ernie!?!? LadyMum saw thee Eclipse all tho’ onlee 60% here…shee looked uppy WITHOUT glassess…..fur a breef moment an thee Moon was half over thee Sun!
    Oh wee watched coverage of Eclipse on ABC Tee Vee an that was berry kewl mee can tell you!

    ***nose bumpsss*** Siddhartha Henry xXx

  39. TW live-streamed it cos she was too cheap to buy the glasses and too lazy to make the cereal box thingy. Actually, she got home from shopping about 2 minutes before the total part which was about 72% where we are.

  40. Nothing to see here in Scotland.x

  41. Only had a partial eclipse here. Didn’t watch it either. But it was fun seeing the pictures from the full eclipse areas.
