A Princess, A Diva and Royal Mail

Recently Princess Leah posted here that she would like to learn to play

This picture prompted me to tell her about my lovely soprano voice.
I suggested we could take our show on the road.
She then wrote "yes Madi I could accompany you as you sing the song of your people."
THEN TOGM remembered that she had my human sis's Recorder and music book from way back when Sis was in the 5th grade. I told Princess Leah Mom thought briefly about teaching herself to play the Recorder....then she got a brilliant idea.

So dear friends...Princess Leah and I are entertaining the idea of a new Girls Band..after all the Spice Girls are not so spicy anymore.
PL and I doubt very seriously that Mom can learn to play the Recorder.
I certainly can't play it and sing the song of my people.  If any of you have any extra hot air to spare and would like to play the recorder in our band, let us know in the comments below.

Princess Leah and I need a name for our Girl Band.
We are open for suggestions....please put your suggestions in your comment below.
We will give each suggestion Royal  Diva consideration.

Royal Thank You


Mom's eyes are better than they were last week this time; however,
she is still trying to be mindful of how long she stares at the computer screen.   She told me, when one stares at the computer screen, one forgets to blink and it causes the eyes to dry out. 
On top of everything else she is now dealing with dry eyes!!
(As I've mentioned in the past, she works for free so I can't dock her pay.) She has an appointment 
on 3/28 to talk to her doc about the state of affairs with her monthly use contacts, which she hasn't worn since March 2, and if, in fact she should wear them  or just go to her glasses all the time.
In the meantime, I'm cracking the whip.

Happy St. Patrick's Day on Caturday Art Day

If it is Saturday, we are having fun with 

Mom and I thank our favorite Jersey Girl, Chelle, who now lives in Florida
for this lovely photo taken in Washington Oaks State Park.

Now a little Mom art...before she was the old gray mare she used to 
cross stitch A LOT.
Above the bed where I rest is a cross stitching mom did called
It is a favorite of Mom's

In case you can't read it...Mom typed it for you.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields 
and until we meet again, 
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I think this is a very nice place to nap and mediate

THE OLD GRAY MARE has been fighting a losing battle with
eye allergies. It all started as they walked at the mall on 3/2..
demolition to a shop was causing all kinds of debris and dust to float in the air.
They left immediately but not before adhered to her contacts.
She awoke the next day to very swollen and itchy eyes.  
She has been to the eye doc 3 times in 2 weeks.
The RX eye drops she was using ran down onto her face, she has very sensitive skin, drops caused an allergic on her face. Now she is a splotched OGM.
She has med for that now...
THUS I have given her Sunday off...but we will return on
Monday, March 19, 2018.
Hugs Madi and Splotchy
Mom discovered that baby oil feels really good to her itchy eye lids
but it makes it very hard to see.

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday

Today we join Two  SPOILED CAT 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.

This was a very WET picture!!

by Mom with Madi's assistance

As you can see, this is a picture of the sea.
Rest assured that speck in the sea is not me.
You see I have a see-cret about the sea.
Only my toes goes in the sea.
My toes I must clearly see or else the sea is not for me.
As a child, a visit to see the sea gave me much glee.
I waded waist high with the sun in the sky.
I squealed as the waves made it difficult to see.
My toes loved the feel squishy wet sand.
Then one summer, in the middle of July, the sight I saw
in the sea gave me such a fright. 
No matter how hard I wished. there was no way I could 
all those (Portuguese) Man of War jelly fish floating about like they 
owned the sea. 
From that day forward being in the sea was not for me.
