Remembering Raspy: Air punches

20101202_142212_bRaspy used to do “air punches”.  These are similar to air kisses but the intention was not quite so affectionate. 😉

She would do the air punches quite often when she was snoozing.  It was like she dreamed or thought of something or someone distasteful & lunged at the air, in a reflex action.  It was also a way of telling someone (naming no names, but Cagney comes to mind!) in a polite but firm manner that she was not amused & to please keep their distance.

I occasionally see the toyboys do an air punch & it immediately makes me think of my beautiful, feisty, no-nonsense, Raspy-Bella.
