Thursday Things and Mayoral Nominee Reminder

Just seconds before this photo session
Dad was frantically searching rummaging through these drawers
for what I know not.....
 But it was my duty to sit here to offer moral support
(evidently his search turned up nothing)
  Mom and I decided to introduce you to Zip
the Original Beanie Baby Cat.
 If you remember Beanie
Babies, raise your hand!! Ahh I see a lot of hands.
You guys are telling your age! MOL
They were quite collectible for many years.  They all had 
official birth dates, Zip's is March 28, 1994
We only have this one because: 
1)Mom thought Zip's 
pink nose was adorable....little did she know one day
she would have a Diva with a pink nose. He was 
a member of the family long before I arrived!

2) Mom loved the little verse that is on Zip's ear tag
"Keep Zip by your side all the day through
Zip is good luck, you'll see it is true
When you have something you need to do
Zip will always believe in you"

In this life it is very important to surround yourself by 
those who have faith and believe in you!!

Mayor of Blogville is a 1 year term.
However, both Frankie and I ran for re-election 
and were honored to serve a 2nd year....but 2 years is the limit!! MY TERM IS UP AS OF 1/1/15


Please put on your thinking hats we need 
a list of candidates you fell would make a good 
mayor and of course you can nominate yourself.
Once you have someone in mind, ask them if they are willing to enter the race for Mayor.
If they are up for the task, *email me their name, email and blog address. Elections will be held
November 1, 2014.  
Thank you
Madi who has been honored to be your Mayor

AUGUST 8, 2014

On Wednesday August 13, 2014 I will 

announce all the nominees.


  1. You've been a great Mayoress Diva, Madi. We will be sad to see you leave the office. Maybe Zip could be nominated!
    Have a beautiful Thursday.
    **Nosebumpies** from all your besties - Princeton, Precious, Preslee, and Prudence

  2. How awesome that your human has a predecessor to you Madi!

  3. My momma had lotsa da Beanie Babies from when she were a lil girl. Some kids never gotta play wif theres (becuz dey were sposed to be worth tons in a few years, MOL!), but momma says she did.

  4. My peep uses her Beanie Babies in her classroom. Each one means something different and they get to sit on different students' desks who've earned them! I'm so happy I got to be born during your mayoral time!

  5. Mommy has quite a number of Beanie Toys with their tags on too. We aren't allowed to play with them though. ;)

  6. I am sure your Dad was most grateful for your moral support Madi, even though his search was not a success.
    Toodle pip!

  7. We have a scottie beanie baby! And a sloth for some reason.

    Good helping your Dad, we're sure he appreciated the support.

  8. We remember beanie babies! Plush Ashton is a beanie baby, but we took her tag off when she got her eyepatch. (We are sure that all of you collectors just cringed reading that.)

  9. I had a few beanie babies....but my gosh, I did not know about the birthdates. Hmmmm. Must be livin' under a rock here. Well, buried in the sand anyway.

  10. Of course a black beanie kitty is a guarantor for good luck. My mom collected some special beanies like that rainbow guy and the howl-o-ween guys...butt they all disappeared to nowhere... probably because she had no Zip the cat for good luck.

  11. We have that exact same beanie baby and lots of others. I need to figure out someone to give them to..
    Madi, you have been one wonderful mayor, that is for sure. You all have a most wonderful Thursday.

  12. We have a lot of beanie baby cats but not that one.

    your guy Raz and The Florida Furkids

  13. Mommy is a kid at heart and loves her beenie babies. Its hard to believe your term as mayor is ending. U are a great mayor.

  14. Very cute Madi. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  15. we could use a new mayor down here Madi, if you want to try in another state.. MOL... you look beyond adorable sitting next to the oil lamp and you must be good a balance to keep from knocking over that lamp.

  16. Zip must have been an omen that Mom and Dad would pick you Madi.
    Fate at work.

    Good job as Mayor.

  17. We LOVE Zip. He is CUTE and he DOES resemble YOU. They must have had some FORESIGHT when they made her.
    We have 4 Beanie WEENIES... heheheheh

    OMD we can NOT wait to see who all is willing to run fur MAYOR... And there will be DEBATES and SPEECHES and Pawrades and Meet the Candy Dates nights with Pot Luck suppers.... OH and the nice Give Aways... the Pens and note pads and stuffs... Election Time in Blogville will be SO exciting.

  18. Madi you are a wonderful Mayor and the next one has big paws to fill :) and i never jad a beanie...maybe cos i am older than dirt hahaahha :) hugs and loves Fozziemum xxxxx

  19. I remember Beanie Babies! I sold them at a gift store and nearly lost my life over the fight for the ones peeps wanted! Zip's tag is darling!

  20. Our mom says she went through life and never had a beanie baby or a Barbie doll. But her worstest thing is that she never got to be a Brownie even though she wanted to really bad. She loved the Brownie uniform and especially those socks. She says that is the reasons she is the way she is. Sigh . . . poor mom. We are glad she made it through life with such atrocities.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  21. What a fun beanie baby! Madi, I can't imagine anyone other than you being mayor! We will get thinking though...

  22. Momma still has a Beanie Baby or two. She never was crazy at collecting them, but there were a few she bought 'cause she liked how they looked.

  23. Yep momma knew of those beaniebabies...we actually have a beanie moose that we play wif.

  24. That beanie is ALMOST as cute as you sweet Madi!

  25. I wonder how the makers of that beanie baby knew one day there would be YOU, a kitty just like little Zip who brings good luck and support to your mom. She is lucky to have both of you! Dear Dawg...a new Mayor in Blogville? It will be difficult to find your replacement, Madi.

    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Greta

  27. madi...if yur dad wuz lookin for a piece oh chalk...ta say...mark sumthin...tell him ta look noe further than yur mom...



  28. What a stressful time for all the would be candidates. Mom knows the beanie babies since she is way older than they are
    Lily & Edward

  29. Oh boy...Mama smiled when she read about the Beanie Babies, she remembers them (and has more than a few) well!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty and Bilbo

  30. Zip seems like a very nice Beanie. Mom says she used to have lots of those babies around but she doesn't know where they are now. Hope your Dad finds what he is looking for:)

  31. Zip looks just look you, Madi!! BOL
    Your BFFF,

  32. Madi, the mom has a lot of beanie babies...mostly all the cat ones, of course! One of my first toys when I was a little kit was a leopard beanie baby. I still have him. ~Wally

  33. Ma had a couple of beanie babies, butts her Angel Panda dog gutted them...bummer. None was a pawsome as Zip though!

    Ruby ♥

  34. I wasn't a huge fan of Beanie Babies, just the cat ones..hehe!
    Mikko plays with a little stuffed puppy that was laying around the house, I can't even remember where it came from. But we play fetch and sometimes Jax joins in the fun too!
    Have a pawsome day!

  35. How amazing that your mom found Zip and then you? It's like Zip came to life in you - that is pawsome!
    Wally & Sammy

  36. Oh, Zip is so cute. Our mama was into Beanie Babies for awhile when our step-sister was younger. Mama still has a few packed away in boxes. We are looking forward to seeing who will be running for mayor.

Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
Life is short, spend it with those who make you laugh
