Flower Friday and Fill ins

Happy Flower Friday



While the peeps were away visiting friends last week, 
Mom took these photos of flowers that were looking quite pretty

The pretty pink blooms of the Rose of Sharon on the right reminded us of Angel Dory's signature
PINK


And here are The Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday. Phoebe's Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.
Madi in Red
Mom in Blue


1. MOM:As a child, my favorite playground activity was probably talking or swings.  I don't really remember but I do remember getting in trouble for talking ALL THE TIME.  I say if you are good at something you should do it all the time!! I'm a good talker

MADI:As a kitten, my favorite activity was CLIMBING on any and everything in the house

2. For breakfast, I have
MOM:Cheerios with a banana.  
MADI:About 1/2 can of wet food and my kibble is replenished if I ate it all overnight.

3.
An instrument I would like to play is
MOMguitar.
MADI: I don't have thumbs so I'm limited on instruments but I sure wish I knew how to open the Pantry!!
I'm told Milky-way the first family cat was very long and could stand on his hind legs to open the doors by wrapping his paws around the doorknob!! :::::sighing heavily::::::

4.
MOM: I always try to be kind and have a positive attitude, because I enjoy being around folks who are kind and are positive.
MADI: I always try to behave at night because when you wake up a sleeping giant mom things can get real interesting.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Angel Sammy has suggested one of these  G words:
garden, giggle, groceries, grandma



To have a garden takes lots of work.

If you are successful, you will have tons
of veggies for your grandma's wok.
If she cuts her finger while she slices and dices the veggies, do not giggle.
'Cause she will wiggle her nose and off you 
will goes to buy groceries.
Home alone you will come without a clue what to do.

Sincerely

My first Word(less) Wednesday

My (1st) Wordless Wednesday

July 14,  2009


Thank goodness over the last 8 years Mom has learned how to take  photos of this
Diva...and she follows me everywhere. It is rare that she is wordless too.

Also on July 25, 2017
Mom is fascinated with J Crew windows

According to what is on the window this is their 'back to school' window.
Normally they paint the walls before a new window display.  Not this time
so Mom thinks this might be one of many back to school window displays.
The giant whirligigs* are interesting too. At first mom thought palm trees Dad set 
straight.

*A whirligig is an object that spins or whirls, or has at least one part that spins or whirls. 
Whirligigs are also known as pinwheels, buzzers, comic weathervanes, gee-haws, 
spinners, whirlygigs, whirlijig, whirlyjig, whirlybird, or plain whirly.

Tuesday Tale about cat tails

My Tail 
from
I Could Pee on This by Francesco Marciuliano

If my tail is curved then I'm at ease
If it is tucked then do what you please

If it twitches then get out of my sight
(I'm watching a squirrel on my deck)
If it is to one side then I'm free for the night
(if you can wake me up)
If it is fluffed then I simply can't deal

If it swishes (and my fangs are showing) then it is about to get real
If it is erect then for you I give thanks

It there is no tail then I'm a Manx


BREAKING NEWS I
My vet told mom to check in with him yesterday to let him know how my my subqs and how my appetite was over the weekend.  She told him Miss Piggy I was eating like there was no tomorrow.  WooHoo for the next two weeks 
Pokemo(m)n only has to do Subqs every other day.  Needless to say
everyone is thrilled.  I go back to the vet in 2 weeks to have my blood stolen to check my kidney levels.  

BREAKING NEWS 2
Yesterday my good budz the Doodz left this comment
Madi, tell your mom that she is as tall as measuring from the tip to tip of her middle fingers when arms are outstretched.

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

Dearest Doodz, mom ran lickety split out to get Stanley, the tape measure.  Dad measured Mom's outstretched arms from tip of middle finger to tip of middle finger. It is 5'1". 'Course Dad knew she had short arms 'cause she can't reach anything. Then Dad measured mom's height....lucky she has not shrunk she is still 5' 3 1/2"

Breaking New 3

Yesterday Bently and Pierre left this comment
Are most cat's legs and tails the same length? I know humans are built weird like that. Our foot is the same length as our elbow to wrist. MOL!

Dearest Bently and Pierre
We are not sure if most cat's legs and tails are the same length.  Summer said her tail was longer...
But good news moms feets are the same length, 9", as the distance between her elbow and wrist..WooHoo
