FLOWER FRIDAY w DORY


Today I'm joining my long time gal pal Dory from

for 
Flower Friday...


Dory's mom loves everything blooming
and takes great photos 

The real jewel in this pot is the ornamental
Purple Pepper Plant..I dare you to say that 5 times fast!!
*************
Recently,
Mom bellowed "Madi come up to smell these pretty rosy posies".
I turned my laser stare toward her as I said, "I just ate...I cannot run up the stairs with a tummy full of Fancy Feast."

SO

She she brought them to me.
FYI:  Do you see the white box
to my left?  It is labeled 
MADI'S Box

It contains KITTY torture 
mani-pedi stuffs.  I have a
torture mani-pedi session once a month.
She puts it on the stairs a few days before...
if I fail to make an appearance it could be I'm in hiding 
from the Madi's Box

"Fursday" Tale

Once upon a time. Mom asked you all to overlook
the sheet over the bedspread on our guest bed.
She always says it is there to keep my furs
off the spread.  I pick one of the beds to 
sleep on and will sleep there for weeks...then move on.
Case in point below!!! Sis and BIL were here 
a month ago.  After the went home, I started sleeping on
their bed.  


The next picture (taken 5/21) of the exact spot where I was
sleeping....Mom says there is enough furs
there to make a Madi clone.  Note I left a whisker at 
 the red push pin 


FYI:  In my opinion, anyone sleeping on one of my beds with my precious furs should consider themselves L U C K Y!!

THE END
Sincerely 
Madi(son) D. Furry and short 1 whisker Cat

WINDOWS


GREAT BIG MEOWS TO 
SARGE FOR A WONDERFUL 
DATE DAY!! YOU'DA MAN
Madi and Raz!! 

Today we'd like to share some thing seen in windows..you might find some funny, weird or just plain crazy....and one or two might be repeats.

being strapped in for a visit to the vet
summer 2013

 Finally we had our first bunny sighting of 2014....
precious baby bunny the week after Easter seen
through our dining room window
 The peeps walk at a local mall every morning.
They tell me J. Crews has the best creative window 
dressings in the entire mall.  
These critters are made with wicker
hot pads.



 Mom on the back porch kneeling down taking a picture 
of me through the back door window.
Boy did she capture lots of things inside and outside in 
one photo
 This is a repeat and we still aren't exactly sure how mom did it.
Mom thinks she was on the back porch madly snapping
happened to see me on my cat tree through the octagonal window
snapped the picture not thinking about reflections etc.
The china cabinet and the candle sticks are in two separate areas of the room and were not in view when she snapped the picture.
 As our favorite tv artist, Bob Ross, would say
Happy Accident

DATE DAY (finally)

I would like to thank SARGE for hosting this most wonderful day!!!

I was so excited when I read about it and I knew exactly who I wanted to invite....and where we were going.
TA DA our official Date Day Photo
I invited Raz to attend my Dad's special birthday outing 
on April 26, 2014.  It was an all day affair in the great out of doors so Raz and I grabbed our straw hats.


OMCs when we arrived there was an official welcome sign.
Just to give you a little back ground....my Dad loves
trains of all shapes and sizes.  The last weekend of April every year there is a Live Steam event in Apex, NC.    I asked Dad to give me a short description of the trains and event.  I had to specify short cause he is a train brain and can talk about them non-stop.
 He said, 
"The track gauge is 
7 1/2", the large steam engines can weigh ~800 to 1000 lbs. As you can see, they are heavy enough for several adults to ride. The engines can be either steam or diesel. The tracks run through several scale miles of scenic wooded property."

Here are a few more pictures of folks on  the trains


I had never been to this event but I just knew Raz would love it 'cause all boys love trains!!  As soon as we arrived,
we were invited to take a ride on a steam engine...
He was so excited he got to wear an Engineer's hat. 
OMCs Raz do you see all that steam?
and look at all the pretty trees and even the squirrels are OK.
As soon as we hopped off this train, we boarded another one
I was a little worried I'd fall of the cushion but
Raz was ready to leap to my rescue


My sweet Dad sat in the caboose just in case we had questions
While we were riding the rails, I asked mom to prepare a picnic for us.  Kudos to her did a bang up job too.  She even reserved a 
special place just for us.

Jumpin' Catfish after our picnic Raz took
me on a romantic row boat ride around the
pond.  We dubbed the boat 
The Raz-Ma-Taz
We ended our purrfect DATE cooling it in the shade
doing a little bird watching.  I told Raz those birds were lucky 
we were full from out picnic otherwise they would have been
lunch!


After a long and fun day, we headed back to my house for
Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Cake

I would like to thank Raz for being such a fun Date!!!
Hugs 
YOUR GAL MADI


Mom and I give Raz's mom Ms. Sharon a standing ovation
for working her magic in Photoshop.  You
picked just the right pictures for our 
very very special day!!
