Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #42

Today we join Two  SPOILED CATS 

Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.


Here is today's inspiration

I have only bowled about 5 times in my life... AND 
each time my expression was much like the second lady with her hands 
flying about


Oh no I dropped it
Wait come back
Can I go after it
What No do overs well
Well I'll be sacked !!

Wordless Wednesday: Water and miscellaneous

 

Hosted by Comedy Plus

Now that cooler weather is here, we are taking morning walks
I snapped this photo on a recent walkabout.
It made me smile...are you SMILING?

Each Saturday after we have lunch at Seaboard we like to stroll around to see what is new.  This birdbath/water fountain caught my eye.





Miscellaneous shots from Shelley Lake Trail
the lake meanders along the trail forming babbling brooks
Lots of bridges too.


Lots of gravel trials too probably for biking
One day we might just have to take this one


Sun peeping through the tall trees highlighting some trail art

Yes this is really steep you can have a great
cardio workout  on almost all the trails

So many decisions which way to go and always lots of 
pups taking their people for walks.

Happy Fall Tuesday Tale from my furry Nephews


Dearest Auntie HiC
Since my last email to you,

We’ve been celebrated Fall and Dad's birthday last week.

Rocky helped Mom decorate the front porch; when he wasn’t playing with the little pumpkins. 🎃 



I snoopervised Mom while she decorated for Dad’s birthday. 😻

Auntie, we, Kat and Rocky, borrowed Mom's plastic card to order  this for Dad...and it was his favorite gift.  



Great Job mom Dad will be so very surprised


And Pup, who by the way, has the bestest smile,
 helped Mom hang a wreath and Halloween flag.
Check out his latest short film!

Sound on, please:


We love this time of year! 🍁🎃🍂
Happy Fall Y’all! 

❤️ Kat Your Feline Nephew 


 Dearest nephews!
I know your Dad had a big smile on his face when he saw all the birthday
fun you and mom created.
OMC/Ds uncle and I love love love your photos. Your mom has a very decorative eye for placing your decorations in the purrfect spot. We toooo love fall. 
Pup you did a great job of snoopervising the Placement of the wreath and kitty flag
🌹‼️😻🐾
Lovingly your Auntie HiC 

Thank you for your kind wishes for my periodontal visit yesterday.
Everything went according to plan.  No dicing, slicing or stitches.
He did what he called 'shaving' to tighten up the gum around the tooth
I go back on Nov 2, for recheck BUT NO MORE procedures.
I'm on a soft diet til Thursday.

Awww Monday and Sparks by Rocky

  Hosted by Comedy Plus



Happy Awww Monday Friends
OMCs life in my new FUREVER home is full of surprises and fun...
We recently had visitors who dropped a load of firewood in the yard.
Mom sent this photo to Auntie HiC, who always has a c8tive party in her head.
She thought this would make a purrfect photo for Awww Monday and Sparks
Pup and Kat have been telling me wonderful stories about having a warm home in the winter and naps in front of the fire.  I'm excited.


Sincerely Rocky...

I will be MIA for at least part of the morning.
I have an 8:30 am periodontal appt which I hope
will bring my saga that began on July 28 to a close.
Supposedly minor surgery with maybe one stitch.
We shall see.

Selfies: Me, Peter Pumpkin and Mail box

from the Steep Hill Trail
This is one of the very steep hills on the NC Art Museum Trail


 Just at the end there is a mirror that hopefully prevents in mid air collisions with bikes and humans


I took a selfie



Remember Peter Pumpkin that I told you about in Mid September?
Here is a reminder 


Last week we discovered some NAUGTY rodent
has been munching on Peter
Well here is what Peter looked like...as the week 
progressed there was more gnawing.  Thankfully 
the naughty visitor has not eaten Muriel Mum yet?!




And the NAUGHTY rodent also enjoyed gnawing on our 2nd 
pumpkin on the back porch.  They both were discarded in last week's 
trash.  


After our long hot summer our mailbox plantings were in need of a 
make over.  Dad of Angel Madi, DOM, loaded all his gardening implements, soil and gravel wheeled them down the drive way.  Of course like all projects it was MORE involved than expected.
Lots of digging up of weeds etc.  He and his trusty shovel reshaped the area to give the curb more curb appeal.  He added 11 liriope and pea gravel and larger white rocks.
He is a star and gets lots of thumbs up!!!
Nice Job DOM
