Saturday Photo Hunt

We love Saturday Photo Hunt click
here for a list of words
Today's word is

AMAZING

On June 19, Mom went out to the bird feeders to attach a tray that had fallen off.  When she looked up to hang the feeder back, she saw this rainbow.  She and Dad thought it was most unusual.  I was  not curved downward like most rainbows and it had not rained...very 
AMAZING!!!
Human sis sent us this photo of Mia.  Sis was putting on her makeup
Mia was sitting on the counter by Sis.  All of a sudden Mia launched herself into the 
air landing on the top of the door....Sis thought she'd have to help her down.
Nope Mia got down the same way she got up
AMAZING

How I spent Demo Day 1



DO NOT FAINT BUT GUESS HOW I SPENT THE MORNING OF DEMO DAY ONE

IN MOM'S LAP...YEP THIS DIVA BECAME A LAP CAT AFTER 14 YEARS I DECIDED I WAS SAFEST SITTING IN MOM'S LAP.
WE WERE SEQUESTERED IN MY BLOG OFFICE.  THESE PHOTOS WERE TAKEN
WITH MOM'S iPad up close but I am
100% in her lap and WAS I PURRING

 and I'm wondering why it took me so  long
to discover the joys of laps and will I continue
this bizarre behavior?
We will keep you posted
 When they demo guy went to lunch, I jumped down to enjoy some sun puddle time
to take a nap
I had the most wonderful dream that Princess Leah
invited me to stay with her until all the mess was over...just in case it
was real...PL leave a light on I'll be their in two shakes of a cat's tail



Here is what the peeps master bath looks like now shower wall gone
floor gone...MOL MOL MOL their toilet is in the
driveway.  MOL MOL If they go out there to use it I will be mortified.
UPDATE: Toilet was moved to the garage

UPDATE FROM MOM (I protested this update but I was over ruled)

Madi is feeling quite abused and put upon sequestered here in the very room she stays in every day (with the door open).  The men are in and out all day. There is just no way she is getting free reign during the day. I'm in here with her 95% of the time.  She has threatened to look for a new home with one of  YOU.  If you she calls, please ignore! She is fine!!! LOL LOL LOL
Her curiosity has gotten the best of her. She escaped confinement for the first time yesterday morning as I  was coming back in to sit with her.  I literally tried to grab the 'tiger' by the tail. I missed. When she got downstairs,  she saw a strange man hid behind the couch.  I got her heart shaped Salmon and Cranberry treats (wink wink Easy) lickety split Madi's love of treats and food won.

Tuesday Tales: BAR Remembrance and Friendship


Yam Aunty aka YaYa
Attended the BAR all the way from Scotland.  It was her first time in 
the United States and let me just say...

Before the BAR she was Yam Aunty...now she is YaYa
SHE LEFT EVERYONE WITH MEMORIES
NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN.  What a lovely lady with such a huge amount of
LOVE in her heart for all beings.  If you ever get a chance to meet 
YaYa....do it...just do it!!
I wish each and everyone could have been present for the most beautiful ceremonies
YaYa performed for Flat angels and Flat Friends.

Mews from the BAR

Today mom decided to share some funny sights and sounds from the B.A.R.

First thing Mom learned at the B.A.R....is when one pup barks...it turns into a melodious
serenade of barks...even the ones that were  asleep barked.  It was so funny.
almost like singing Row, row, row your boat..they all chimed in at different stages!!
This was the mostest K9s my peeps have ever been around at one time.


I tell you friends I cannot let mom go anywhere...she does the craziest things!


Speaking of crazy names...Hailey and Zaphod's Dad's name is Drew....
but their Mom calls him Sam.  Sam is not part of his name either. MOL MOL
Their Mom's nickname was K-ten
If you missed their RV story: The Day we almost died click here
funny now but not so funny then!! It was their first and last RV trip!!




 Frankie and Ernie say they never leave home without fresh Tighty Whiteies


We surprised the Mayoral Assistant with a 60th Birthday Party.
DiDi (Diana's nickname) planned a Scavenger Hunt.  
We all had a list of things to find.  At the end of the trail, the Blogger's significant other was supposed to blindfold us and lead us back.
 Every buddy let Not Beth and Bob (he knew what was up) leave the shelter first.
As soon as they were far enough ahead of everyone, we all turned back around.  We waited about 
30 minutes. Bob was leading a not so trusting Not Beth back to the shelter.
We screamed surprise as she took off the blindfold....to say she was stunned was an understatement.


Everyone gave Not Beth something that had a 60 theme such as candy kisses.


Later we had an awards ceremony...every blogger got an award.  We had a special one for the first Mayors of Blogville Frankie and Ernie. "Not Beth" was trying to read the inscription on the plaque.
When she got to "founding fathers" , she could not get it out.
She said 
"when I was 59 I could say "Founding Fathers" 
But now that I'm 60 I can't say it."



When Mom was a wee lass one of her favorite places to eat was Shoney's.  She especially loved this little fellow, Big Boy, who was always at the front door to greet everyone.
Shoney's was known for a delicious hamburger called a Big Boy. Which is what this little guy is holding and their strawberry pie.

In Frankfort, KY it is called Frisck's


Monday June 13, 2016
HiC, B-cat and YaYa (she came to the BAR from Scotland) took a road trip to Kentucky.
This photo was taken at Crestview Hills Mall.
Aunty YaYa came to the USA in hopes of seeing her first Cardinal...which she did.
(not here though a bird did land in the tree)


Along a lovely rolling road they were greeted by the aromatic smell of a SKUNK
It was a FIRST for YaYa!!  Welcome to the USA Aunty YaYa.
The purpose of this trip was for YaYa to connect with.....Sw. William
and his Lee.  YaYa was going to spend 2 days in Cincinnati with them.
We heard YaYa had a fantastic visit with them.
She also has 2 more blogging friends she will meet before heading back across the 
pond at the end of June.




 YaYa gave mom this beautiful scarf that she designed and Dad a lovely shore bird lapel pin to thank them for driving her to Crestview Hills, KY.  The scarf has lots of RED in it too.  Sorry it is blurry but I was giving it the Madi sniff of approval...It passed.


 Sweet William and Lee sent me a wonderful packages of Temptation treats and gave mom
most useful package of Feline decorated hand sanitizer for her pocketbook.  As a thank you for
driving Yaya to meet them. I was beginning to think I'd have to use my saber teeth to get it opened
Finally TOGM opened it.  They are all my favorite flavors.
WE all love these thoughtful mementos!!

PSA
Today June 20, 2016 at 8 am workers will begin demolition on our master bath room and
powder room.  After these two rooms are finished, they will do a partial reno on the guest bath upstairs.We have never had a bath renovated so all we know is it will be messy and dirty and loud.  Madi and I will be sequestered upstairs in the blog office.  If need be, she will be put in her Condo/aka safe room.  So if we are missing we will either be under a pile of debris or hiding.
MOL/LOL
The project is expected to last 4-6 weeks
Hugs Madi and Mom
