Thank you to all who visited and left lovely comments on Mom's purrsonal blog,
My Mind's Eye.
It is a work in progress. Mom has not created a blog since June 2009.
She forgot a lot of stuff but she also has learned a lot since 2009.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Teddy and Angel Sammy


Today's poem is brought to us by the letter
Y

Y
This cat's meow 
is revvved up a notch by YeoWWW!
WHAT ????your meow is just now
hearing of YeoWWW?
YeoWWW comes in all shapes
GREAT and SMALL
 A cigar, a carrot, a 'nanner and a sardine my mates.
My favorite is not the cigar
it is a tin of sardines by far. 
Yes a tin I did say,
The organic nip tickles my nose, 
it gives my eyes a scary glare.
As it reaches my brain,
into a trance I will remain.
Often I'm asked, "Madi what is your heart's desire",
My reply without a thought is a loud and a proud
YeoWWW! please sir/ma'am with it I am 'down'!!.


As if my mom isn't busy enough keeping up with my blog
(and sometimes she does a poor job of that) she has started her very own
purrsonal blog, My Mind's Eye.  As you all know, she has a crazy wild party in her head.  This blog will be an outlet for that.  No telling what she'll put
on that blog and it won't be every day.  Mainly it will be this and that and bits and pieces.   You can visit it by clicking on the "My Mind's Eye" tab under my header photo or clicking HERE

Tuesday Time tale and teapots

Every Tuesday my Dad winds our Grandfather clock.
This clock was here BM (before Madi)  and I have been here
15 years.  BUT this is the very very very very first time
I have ever been inside.  Timing (pun intended) is everything
you see I was passing by just in nick of Time.
Pardon the blur but mom was upstairs when Dad bellowed
quietly said bring the camera Madi is in the clock.




In case you didn't know, I get my sense of humor from Dad.
Dad said to mom, 'well now Madi has truly been all over the clock'.On top* and now inside.  You may or may not have heard about the on top part.  Mom wrote about it in 2009 we had only been blogging 2 months. WE have it pasted below



Flashback August 2009:

I was not blogging on Madi's 7th b-day (March 11, 2009). Today and tomorrow 
I'll post two stories about Madi's first year with us to celebrate how
lucky she was she is still here and how VERY LUCKY we are she chose to STAY!!!
Madi Climbs: Mount Grandfather Clock: Part 1





















Madi was angelic when we brought her home at 2 months of age and weighing 2.5 lbs. During the 
first 4 months of cuteness she was really sizing up her peeps, deciding best how to rule her domain.
She cast her cuteness net over us, reeling us in hook, line and sinker. At 6 mos. and maybe 5 lbs, her 
true colors came out she was a really mountain goat in a kitty body.
This picture is our staircase...to the left of it our Grandfather clock. The gap between the stairs 
and clock is about a foot. One afternoon Madi's Dad heard a faint meow (aka 'look at me Dad'). 
He looks to his left to find Madi on top of the Grandfather Clock. Somehow, Madi was able to 
jump between the banisters upwards to the top of the clock. As if this wasn't bad enough 
(cat claws on fine wood), she decided to carve her 'name' on the wood. Yes, she had gnawed on 
the top. THIS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED Dad says!!! Now that she had discovered the trick 
there was not keeping her or her teeth off. We covered the clock with a sheet hoping to spook her, 
NOT!!! Her launch point was where the wicker mag. rack now sits. I was at my wits end trying 
to keep her off the clock. Finally, I remembered seeing a stair step magazine rack in a magazine. 
I bought the last one they had at Linens and Things. Here 7 years later it still sits there...
to the best of our knowledge she never went up there again.

Memorial Day and Mom mania

Happy Memorial Day

Sometimes we two seniors just get the sillies...today is one of them
When mom saw my beds on each other, this came to her head.
Of course she made me meow it out loud.
