Saturday Photo Hunt

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO FIND THE LIST OF 
SATURDAY PHOTO HUNT WORDS

TODAY'S WORD IS


F O C U S: n

1. point at which refracted rays meet; 

2. state of sharpness for image from optical

 device; 3. central point;

This picture might  be what definition #1 and 2 means.
now that Mom is retired she has a rule
only use reference books once a day. 
That one time was to get the definition of focus. 
She expects the user Manual with her camera
would have been helpful with these two pictures.





Obviously she missed my head, the central point of this picture

and the entire central point of this picture my entire body


PSA
FRIDAY MORNING OUR INTERNETS WOULD NOT
COME ON LICKETY SPLIT LIKE THEY USUALLY DO.
THEY FINALLY CAME BUT MOM DID NOT TURN THE
MODEM OFF ALL DAY FOR FEAR THEY WOULD GO AWAY
SO IN CASE WE ARE MIA TOMORROW IT COULD BE
WE ARE CLEARING INTERNETS AGAIN.

Friday Friend

Today I am so excited I had to take a nap before I could 
talk about this post.



Back in February my peeps went to see my human sis and bil.  They took a stroll on the beach ending up near the Coast Guard
Cutter and channel markers.  Mom thought it was very colorful
so she sent a copy of the pic to our very talented friend
Ms. Lynne is also the creator of all the Mini Mes

Photo by Mom
Oh my cats this is Ms. Lynne's sketch and painting of the 
above picture. 
Mom printed it on card stock and will be looking for
a very special frame for it.  
Thank you Ms. Lynne it is gorgeous!!

Spring Fling Day


WELCOME EVERYONE TO 


We tried to create a hop at the bottom??
Hopefully we did...

Mom is going to tell you about some dates (good and bad)
in our family.


1.Mom and Dad's First Date was 
March 28, 1968
Dad planned a classy date at the College Inn
a very nice steak house way back when.
Dad said he got a 'rare' treat that night.
Mom order her steak so 'rare' he was
pretty sure it was going to......

Lucky for mom he asked her on a second date and the rest as they say is history.  Now Mom likes her steak well done and
Dad likes his a little too pink. 


2. Way back in the mid 80's my sis had a 
Second and Last date with her friend's cousin.
When mom told me about it I fell on the floor
MOLing I almost choked on kitty slobber.
They were going bowling. Mom said my sis was upstairs getting ready when she heard the car pull into the driveway she looked out the window and  bellowed MA HELP...tell him I'm not here.  He looks like a Bumblebee.  He has on a yellow shirt with black trim,  black shorts and yellow and black striped tube socks.  I'm not going out with a 
Bumblebee
Mom here: this is the absolute gospel truth.
It was the most atrocious outfit I've ever seen.
She went bowling but drew the line at
going out for pizza afterwards.

3. Madi's very First date was  

 with Raz.  It was arranged by Easy and Frank at their Queen of Heart Matchmaking booth.
Raz asked me if I'd like to go on a surprise date before QofH.  
He chartered a private plane to take us to Venice
as you can see I was so excited I MOL

As soon as paws touched the ground we took a
romantic ride on the canals...Raz sang.....
O sole Mia, Madi


We dined on the terrace while watching
the beautiful sunset.
I can tell you right now that Raz can plan a 
date!!


Our Second Date was to the Queen of Hearts Ball
Raz looked so dashing in his tux my itty bitty kitty heart skipped a beat.  He loved my red gown too.  We danced all night

Just when I thought it could not get any better Raz asked me on our Third Date ...he took me to the moon for the weekend!!! 
Yep that is  right he bought us matching Space Suits.  



I shared a room with Ellie and Allie on the Space Station.
To say Raz is an out of this world Date is putting it 
lightly.

I did not have my first date until I was almost 12 but let me tell you guys and dolls it was worth the wait. I've decided this dating 
game is fun and I think I'll keep doing it.  Looks like I found
my Prince in Raz.


BAD DAWG AGENCY aka Murphy, Stanley, Frankie,
Ernie and Roxy will be performing a special Spring Fling
Love Song beginning today at 
6 am Mountain (USA) time

MADI IN KNICKERS

Welcome to
Knicker Day 
hosted by
****************
DISCLAIMER:
RAZ YOU MIGHT AS WELL GO AHEAD AND
RECLINE THAT WAY YOU WON'T HURT YOURSELF WHEN YOU FAINT.
****************
Mom was purrty excited about Knicker Day, me not so much!
As far as I knew I didn't have any knickers.  Mom 
said never fear...lo and behold she found racy knickers ON SALE 2 pair for 3.99 (they were 9.99 mom loves a deal) at  SUPER Kmart .
 AS I gave them a sniff, she started explaining 
what I needed to do. 
You want me to do what and put my feet where?
Nope that ain't happening mom.

Mom expected me to high tail it off the bed 

RAZ...MY GUY....ONE MORE WARNING HIT THE FLOOR 
*

but I surprised her by getting all cozy on the bed.
I didn't even move when she put #1 of 2 on my tush

 Obviously the seamless and super smooth fit 
was exactly what a Diva Cat likes...I tried 
not to notice they made my tush look like a bumble bee exploded
 I seemed to be enjoying the photo session the flashy beast was not in my eyes so Mom puts #2 of 2 on my tush.  Evidently they were on sale because they were USED...
they already had a name on them

 Aerial view notice I'm avoiding eye contact
 All in all it wasn't a bad experience, I did not have 
to exert any energy nor endure any flashy in my eyes.


Now that this photo session is over I have no need for knickers...
I prefer to go COMMANDO
I think I'll put them on eBay for sale 2 for 1.99  another bargain
