Happy Birthday to G-Ma and COLLECTING...


Happy 85th Birthday to my G-ma
March 28, 1928
Her new meds seem to be helping with her hallucinations.
This picture was taken on August 15, 1998 at my
human sister's wedding.

COLLECTING
MOM'S BEEN DOING A LITTLE SPRING
SPIT POLISHING AND CLEANING

SHE SAID WHILE THE VASES WERE DUST AND (CAT )
HAIRLESS SHE WANTED TO SHOW YOU HER
SHELL COLLECTION
B.M. (before me) she found 
Four whole sand dollars and a piece of
sea sponge on Atlantic beach.  It is nearly
impossible to find either now

she especially enjoyed collecting what she calls
miniature shells




NOW SHE JUST COLLECTS PICTURES OF 
ME
WHEN WE STARTED BLOGGING IN 2009, SHE ONLY HAD SOME POLAROID SHOTS OF ME....NOW
SHE HAS MORE THAN SHE CARES TO ADMIT...FOR FEAR
OF BEING CALLED A 
CRAZY CAT LADY.

  5. Happy Birthday G-Ma!
    We are glad to hear she is responding to the new meds.
    Those shells are so beautiful. Our mama remembers when you could find whole sand dollars too but that was long ago.
    But the best collectable of all is of course photos of you sweet Madi.

    Purrs,

  8. Oh dat is just wonderful news dat your G-Ma is doin' good on da new meds. Does her has extras? I has been told I hallucinate...or was it delusions of grandeur? Whatever.

    Good shells do be hard to find now. When da hoomans was at Jekyll Island they seen bunches though! But they won't go back theres cuz they also had too many bugs.

    A good collection of Madi fotos is priceless and at least your mom knows her priorities are now...hehehe.

  9. Happy Birthday to your Grandma! We're so happy the new meds are helping her. That's always good!
    Mommy loves those sand dollars. She almost bought a lamp made entirely of sand dollars and shells but she knew she'll either have to hide it in a cabinet or risk having us break it. Hee hee.

  10. Happy, Happy Birthday to Grandma! We're glad to hear that the medicine is helping her. That's just too frightening. We're sending her long distance wishes for a peaceful day.

    We just absolutely LOVE your mom's shell collection. My Mommy has a large collection of them too in NY. She's collected them ever since she was a little girl from all the places she has been. Mommy has been looking for a lamp that she can fill and display them in, but hasn't found the lamp yet. (She knows they are made but are very hard to find.) Your Mom picked the perfect jars for them!!

    Hugs,

  11. Happy Birthday to your Grandma! I am so glad the meds are helping her :)

    Luv your beach collections! There is a beach near me where you can find shark teeth and collect them. Next time Mom goes there I'll remind her to look for some to send to ya :)

    Madi, you look marvelous as always :) So what's wrong with being a crazy cat lady? It's all good :D

    Waggin at ya,

  12. Happy birthday to your grandma, Madi. We're glad the meds are helping her!

    The shells are pretty; our human used to collect shells (and pretty-coloured stones too), but hasn't kept any of them through her various moves.

    Happy long weekend to you all!

  14. Oh Madi, our person really is one crazy cat lady. Not to worry about yours Madi. We love Sand dollars. We use to use them for ornaments on our Christmas tree before cats. Great picture of your Grannie and Grandpa. So glad to hear that the medicine is working. Take care.

  15. Momz collects shells too...She likes Scotch Bonnets the best...And Madi you're so lovely there's no such thing as too many photos of you...They're all precious

  16. so now instead of MOM she will be known as CCL crazy cat lady... or maybe crazy shell lady... mother was a crazy shell lady... she had hundreds of shells, she grew up here where i live now and shelling was very popular, the beaches were covered with them, and now they are few and far between.

  17. No way to the crazy cat lady. It just shows her overflowing love for the most beautiful Madi. I mean really how could anyone resist not taking pictures of you. They would have to be crazy.
    Blessings,

  22. Happy Birthday to Grandma! Your Mom is a nice combo of her Mom and Dad.

    The shells are beautiful - Mom remembers hunting for shells on the New England shore when she was a little girl - a hundred years ago.

  27. Oh, I FORGOT that your Grandma shares a Gotcha Day with me! I'm awfully glad to hear she's feeling better and I sure hope she has a Most Wonderful day.

    Thank you, thank you for coming to my pawty and dancing with Smudge. He's still walking on air! (I think he has a teensy crush on you. But then, what mancat doesn't?)

    I sure do like your mom's shells. They're very pretty. I think I like the sand dollars the best of all. Can you buy anything with 'em?

    Wiggles & Wags,

  28. Happy Birthday to your Grandma!!! So glad she is feeling a bit better. My Ma likes to collect those little seashells too. It is a silly habit, if you ask me. I think she should be collecting dog biscuits or something edible for me.

    Mom has over 50000 pictures, mostly of us kitties, so tell your Mom not to feel bad. It's not unusual for Mom to take several hundred at a time of us to get only 3 or 4 she will publish on the blog. She's persnickety! Happy Birthday to your G-Ma! She sure is purrty!!!

  36. No not crazy at all. Mum is just the same and has everything imaginable with me on. Mum said you are alike as she has much the same shape jar full of shells she has collected. Not seen sand dollars before though and they look lovely. Hugs GJ xx

  37. Happy Birthday to your grandma!!! I am so glad the new meds are helping her!!!! What a sweet picture - they look so happy!!

    My assistant loves sand dollars, too. She found a couple whole ones back in high school on the Gulf Coast of Florida, but you are right they are long gone.

    Your pal, Pip

  38. Happy Birthday to your lovely Grandma! I hope it is a grand day for her.

    Your Mom's shell collections are quite pretty yet they cannot outshine you, dear Madi!

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's a good thing your mom keeps her collections in those vases...otherwise those shells would be everywhere, wouldn't they, Madi??

    Happy Birthday to your G-Ma. We're glad she's doing better.

  40. Mom has a million pics of me and Stanley. Glad your G-ma is better. Tell her we said "Happy Birfday"! Growing old isn't for sissies!

    Your Pals,
