Saturday Photo Hunt:

Happy Saturday Photo Hunt one and all.  
To say Mom had a fit over my crossed paws would be an understatement. Moms are silly like that but we love them anyway.


The word for today's Saturday Photo Hunt is
SCOOP

FYI: the scoop for my food is 1/3 cup, which I get twice a day.
I recently sent in a request for a larger scoop but thus far all requests have been returned to sender.

G.R.I.T.S AND GOTCHA

Last week my BFF Declan aka Deccy the handsome Greyhound who gives us chill bumps asked us a very serious question...

WHAT ARE GRITS

Well being Southern gals we were happy to help our Dahlin Deccy figure out this perplexing question so that he was no longer
addled

Official definition: finely ground particles. The official name is hominy grits which is made from corn.  They are considered a hot breakfast cereal like oatmeal. Mom told him when she makes grits she makes a gracious plenty for everyone
Deccy was quite happy to finally have this cleared up and was thrilled to learn that he was about 3/4 right on what he thought Grits were.  Mom also explained that you can buy flavored grits which she highly recommends to those not RAISED on grits as they are an acquired taste

Well being the Southern girl always ready to help Mom went a step further telling Deccy there is also another form of GRITS which is quite popular in our neck of the woods
G(irls)R(aised)I(n)T(he)S(outh)
And we have an official G.R.I.T.S Tee Shirt with all
kinds of Southern sayings on the back.  Mom and I,  Puddles and her Mom say them about 87 million times a day, 7 days a week.
Deccy sugah it was mighty nice of you to ask
Ta Dah....

Of course I was happy to participate in this very important
Q and A by posing with Mom's G.R.I.T.S tee Shirt
well we are about wore out from this post so we're 
a-going to hush our mouths

AND SINCE WE ARE ON THE SUBJECT OF
G
TODAY IS MY 10TH GOTCHA DAY

10 years ago today May 11, 2002 my peeps and I 
looked into each other's eyes and it was 
love at first MOL.
We want to thank Mama J over at SASS for making this most beautiful banner last May 2011 for my 9'th Gotcha day.

THURSDAY THEME SONG: with Paul Anka

Mom and I thank Hootin Anni for hosting 


Mom is a child of the 60's and a BIG Paul Anka fan.
Today we are featuring 
A Steel Guitar and a Glass of Wine 


This song is one of Mom's favorite songs.  She doesn't recall it being played much on the radio but she absolutely loves the music, beat and words.
She says this music makes her have happy feet.  You should have seen her dancing in her seat.  Please click on one of  the videos (sorry we didn't meant to put two on here MOL) below to hear the song while you look at our pictures and read the words.
We aren't sure but you might have to click on a you tube link to actually hear the song but it is worth it...

Just give me a steel guitar, a glass of wine
and let me drink to a love I thought was mine
A love I thought was true to me
but now I'm drinkin' to a memory
a steel guitar and a glass of wine
While my tears they glisten and the candles shine
Oh candle-glow, oh candle bright
tell me who she sniffs (holds) tonight
And bring me wine and make the music mine
Play another set, so I'll forget
Mmmmm, bring me a steel guitar and a glass of wine
and let me toast her just one more time
Oh candle-glow, before you dim
Tell her what a fool she has been
and bring me wine
Make the music mine
Play another set 
so I'll forget

and bring me a steel guitar and a glass of wine
and let me toast her just one more time
Oh candle-glow, before you dim
Tell her what a fool she's been

Smell Mail from Jazzi


I won the door prize at Jazzi's birthday party on April 6th.
I didn't have a clue what I won but it arrived last week. If you don't know Jazzi click on the link below.
is my BFF and she is one grand hostess.
The mail smelled delish

 Jazzi knows the way to my 
heart is through my tummy.
She sent me Whiskas all wrapped in purrty ribbons
and Meow Mix.  MOL

Mom please put down the flashy beast I need help 
opening my foodables.

A girl could dry up and blow away
waiting for her Mom.  Maybe if I close my eyes really tight, the packets will be open when I open them.
What is that Mom I can't eat them on the bed!!??
DUH...why did you bring  them up here?
JAZZI THANK YOU FOR THE FOODABLES AND FOR THE FUN PARTY.
HUGS FROM YOUR 
STARVING BFFF,
MADI

PURPLE TOILET SEAT AWARD from DECCY

Morning friends..
Yes you've seen me in this Purple bonnet many times; however, I felt it the most appropriate picture as I officially accept the very prestigious and coveted

PURPLE TOILET SEAT AWARD 

from Declan, the most handsome Greyhound who resides across the Pond.   Girls he speaks with the most adorable accent. We Southern girls love a man with an accent. OMC when he calls me 'his mate', I get lightheaded and my lady cat heart goes pitter patter......

Please click here to visit Declan aka Deccy.

He is absolutely a hoot!! He loves to laugh and he makes me MOL every time I visit him....FYI  Deccy girls like funny men! 
Wink, wink




Imagine my surprise on Friday May 4th when I popped over to his blog and read

"This month, however, I would like to present my Excellent Blog Award to Madi and Mom for their post entitled "Ultimate Tuesday 'Tocks." This post had us laughing out loud, and we are full of admiration for Mom for managing to snap the dare devil Madi in such an athletic pose!"



If you missed our "Ultimate Tuesday 'Tocks" post click here to read it

Deccy I, Madi, am honored and humbled to accept this beautiful award. I thank you for the kind words you wrote about us last Friday.  Mom and I say laughter is the best medicine and we always try to LOL/MOL at ourselves especially Mom 'cause she is the biggest ungraceful nut in the house. Case in point falling in the coal dust at the live steam train show.
It has been my pleasure to be your 'go to girl' for advice about co-existing with your feline sib KC. 

WITH LOTS OF HUGS AND MANY THANKS
MADI YOUR  BFFF AND HER (UN)ABLE ASSISTANT

OH MY KAT(HY).....

MS KATHY IS A VERY TALENTED BEADER . PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SEE HER WEBSITE
Mom sent Ms. Kathy a picture of the necklace shown below.  


Mom has lots of Ms. Kathy's Crystal Creations but this is the first time she has asked her to match something she already had  in her jewelry box. Mom asked Ms. Kathy to make earrings and a bracelet to match and lo and behold she 
DID IT AND BOY DID SHE DO IT RIGHT!!
If you think it is pretty in the picture, you should see the crystal 
beads sparkle in person and each bead matches ones on the necklace.  
Ms. Kathy by chance can you make me 4 itty bitty bracelets just like Mom's for each of my paws?  I believe my wrist size is
-4".  I especially like the turquoise and pink combo AND
be sure to leave some smell mail on each of them.
Oh and I would also like some earrings but mine will need to be
clip on PLEASE.  I'm not about to let some amateur puncture my most lovely fur ears.
If Mom will not share her necklace with me
I might have to have you make me one of those too.

And finally my last request...I love this little shiny, purple drawstring bag Mom's came in...may I have one of those too?
There is one tiny I don't get an allowance but I'll happily trade you 
some of my furs.
MS. KATHY TO SAY MOM WAS HAPPY CLAM AND WILL BE PROUD AS A PEACOCK WHEN SHE WEARS YOUR LOVELY ORIGINAL CRYSTAL CREATIONS
Thank you for all your hard work and for being such a good
friend.
Hugs 
Madi and Mom
