Saturday Photo Hunt

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

H A R B O R: sheltered water for ships; give shelter

Our very favorite Harbors in North Carolina are in 
Beaufort and Morehead City.  Here is a collage
of some of mom's favorite photos from both harbors
and lookie there is one of me in my soft kitty harbor



Our area weather update
10:38 am Sat.
we are expecting 5+ inches of rain.
We are no where near rivers or creeks.
Our neighborhood has underground elec. service
but some of the large cables to transformers for our
elec. grid are not.  Hopefully we will keep power
if we disappear that will be why.
Hugs and everyone stay safe.

National Smile Day and Sunflowers

Today Dory and Bros invited everybuddy to celebrate SMILES and SUNFLOWERS
I'm Smiling anytime I'm visiting my friends and their blogs because smiling is
about being happy and content.  Did you know it takes less muscles to smile than frown
so turn that frown upside down and 
S M I L E for the flashy beast!


Sunflowers and smiles go together 'cause they are happy flowers

Mom and I send lots of prayers and purrs to all our friends in Florida in the path
of Hurricane Matthew.  We are surely hoping it turns out into the Atlantic Ocean
away from land.

Added bonus we're doing the Fill ins today.  
Mom's answers are Red
Madi"s are Blue


And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow, Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie ofMcGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

Fill-ins:
1. My favorite store is Bed Bath and Beyond, Pet supply Plus
2. An unanswered prayer I am thankful for Madi:  I used to purr for a little furry sibling
3. At Halloween,  I'm unhappy because I don't like the door bell, I'm happy that we buy candy I don't like.  

4. I believe the supernatural, because I have seen the Maco Light on the NC Coast.

Whisker Wednesday:Taming Tehachapi

I bet that title caught your eye!!


Well here is the rest of the story
Every Wednesday my Dad and his train buddies meet over at 
Mr. Jerry's house to 'run trains'.  Mr. Jerry had a huge basement full of a gorgeous 0 scale model railroad fashioned after the Tehachapi Loop in California.  It is a work in progress most times when the guyz gather it is a fun run.  Every so often they actually work on scenery, update things and most importantly keep it in tip top shape.  Mr. Jerry is a retired electrical engineer so he does a lot of complicated switch stuff.   He is also an avid CB radio operator and he drives a black Suburban. He wanted to put a model of his car in the scenery; however, he could not decide what to use for his CB antenna.  My dad said how about a cat whisker?!? Dad said Madi is always dropping a whisker here and there.   Mr. Jerry said yes indeed that would work.
After a tough negotiation, Dad and I came to an agreement worth one of my whiskers.
A lifetime of tummy rubs, food, shelter and  unconditional L O V E.
In the photo below the pink arrow points to the CB antenna aka whisker of Madi
Whisker of Madi was featured in the January 19, 2015 issue (page 70-77) of Great Model Railroads in an article all about this fantastic Tehachapi Loop Model in O scale

Below are a few more photos

We have nominated an Election Judge and Poll Verifier.  Then we nominated Alternates to serve in case one of the others cannot pawform their duties.  Then we had to hold Confirmation Hearings with the candy dates to make sure no one had objections with any of the nominees.  It was a lot of work!


So today we are pleased to announce the names of these outstanding citizens as well as provide all citizens with an official copy of the rules and regulations regarding voting for mayor.  So without further ado . . .
