I got (3 packages) MAIL

Subtitle: Not Earl Came A Callin'

Guyz and Dollz what fun I had over Christmas weekend.
I rec'd two packages from *Not Earl (aka my mail man).  If you don't know about  Not Earl here is the story.  
He is one fine mailman!!

*Our mail man story:  Not Earl has been our mailman for nearly 30 years. Until about 10 years ago, my peeps thought our his name was Earl.
One week Not Earl was gone for some time. Dad finally asked the substitute mailman if Earl was sick?  He said, do you mean Tony?  Dad said, Oh, His name is "Not Earl"?
The substitute said no it is Not Earl, it is Tony.
From that day forward the peeps still call him (not to his face) "Not Earl"!
My peeps don't think he looks like a Tony.
Every time mom tells this story I ask her what a Tony looks like.
I never get an answer.

1. Raz my surfer guy from Florida sent me a most wonderful box...
on and the stuffs inside were twice as nice as the box!!
My card..............was so sweet I smiled all the day long

 I love love love it Raz now I can give you an itty bitty kitty smack on your lips and time I feel like it.
Raz also sent me some delish know the way to a gal's heart is through her tummy!!


2. This year was my first year pawticipating in the Cat Scouts Card and Gift Exchange.
I want to thank my fellow scouts for all the cards.  MOLMOL I bet the 
knickers right off the peeps.

Scout Mango drew my name...

3. About 87 weeks ago Frankie and Ernie sent a package addressed
to my Dad.  They told him to guard it closely until 12/25/16.  Then he could 
give it to me if I had been  good. I got it so proof positive I was good.
Evidently FnE got wind of the fact that MOM and I save nothing for later.
If it arrives it gets opened lickety split. MOL

Thoroughly Poetic Thankful Thursday

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Angel Sammy

Today's post is brought to you by the letter

def: being subtly or indirectly insulting; 
cattiness is often clever or witty.

Last week as we prepped for the arrival of BIL and SISSY
Mom said Madi please do not to be Catty.
I always try to put on my good kitty cappy
But there is something about Sissy 
that brings out the hissy kitty in me.
I try to be good but sissy invades my space.
She sits in my chairs even though I give her my best glares.
She doesn't move so I hiss and
She moves her stuffs into places that are mine.
I'm here because of Sissy I know that in my mind
She missed a furry critter being here after Toto the mighty mini Dachshund passed.
Sissy begged and pleaded for the first kitty to be brought home.
So that she would not be alone. 
To the shelter they went when she was thirteen.
They came home with baby Milky-way, whom I'm told was not catty, or hissy and was always kind.  
Truth be told I am a kind kitty, and rarely catty but I do have a bit of diva-tude.
Eventually Sissy and I get over our hissi-ness but never ever do we 
get kissy we just agree not to be hissy!!

Side note from mom:  Madi's sissy is a huge, huge huge cat/animal lover.
She has tried to make friends with Madi. Never forces herself on Madi.
Anytime she pasess by Madi, Madi hisses.  It is embarrassing and a mystery.
Sissy really doesn't get to see the sweet kitty we live with. LOL
Madi doesn't even hiss at repairmen in the house when the come near her!!
We don't have a clue why Madi hisses.  Could be that Madi smells Sissy's
kitties Frisco and Mia.


We join Brian's

Mom cut my noggin off so I had to find a replacement lickety split

And would like to say a great big thank you to
Fozzimom (aka Ms. macNcheese, Phil and furbabes,
Gracie, Anya and their folks (2), Spencer and River
and Cat Scout Denmaster Karen and Hubby Jeff, Mr. Denmaster
and 'hooligans' (her words), Homer, Reno (the Demonic Duo),
Banzai and Tripper.
Thank you for your Christmas Cards

Bringing Easy Home

Everyone wanted to honor Easy and his staff so we asked his staff how we could do that.
This was their reply:
"I thought we maybe can bring him home together. 
If everyone could have a candle for him in your posts... and for all we lost this year... too many families are in tears this time"  
As always Easy and Staff are thinking of their friends too

Today, along with the Staff of Easy we are 

Easy and Staff had such a way with words...they made us laugh and taught us
so many fun new expressions.  We are mentioning a few of them in our tribute
to Easy Rider's name.

Excellent friend
Always remembered
Soul mate
Your boy

Ring star (at Dog shows)
Ice cream cemetery
Dark as a salamander's A$$
Energy of 1,000 
Respected DYI snoopervisor

There is no G in Easy or Rider but this one made us laugh every time we saw it.


2016 has been a very hard year.  So much sadness and loss all over.  Humans and pets.  This post is for all who have loved and lost.  May your hearts soon heal and open up to new possibilities. 
Our friends are gone but never forgotten.

Thoroughly Poetic Thankful Thursday

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Angel Sammy

Today's post is brought to you by the letter

(and this is a true story)*

The year was 1958 it was Christmas Eve
When the old gray mare was just a philly,
her Dad overheard her say she did not BELIEVE!
 This he thought this is something quite silly
How had she become so deceived?
She was about to be ten and quite grown up then.
Her dad was a wise man.  He hatched a plan
with the neighbor man.  Together they
would make sure on this Eve the kids believed.
Twas late and all non believers were told to get themselves to bed.
Just as the silly philly was about to drift off into dreamland
there arose such a clatter of bells and Ho Hos she
sprang from her bed to see what was the matter.
She was about to look out the window, when up on the roof
she heard a thump thump thump.
Was it Santa about to land? Yikes she said
I better jump back in bed
It is Christmas Eve and all who now BELIEVED

Below is a photo of the philly  Christmas Day 1958

*side note from the Silly Philly aka TOGM
That year my older cousin and I, were getting too big for our britches, started talking nonsense around the wee ones in the family.  My Dad and Uncle decided to put the Spirit of Christmas back in our heads.  Back then houses had allies between them. My Dad and my uncle met in the alley with bells and a ladder.
One rang the bells while the other knocked on the roof with work boots.

Needless to say Mom was and still is very Thankful for her Dad and her Uncle
making her believe and to always be thankful
We join Brian's
And we are extremely thankful for each and everyone of you !!
We send you kitty kisses and mom hugs


ON THE 23rd.  Their room is upstairs near by blogging office.  We
don't want to bother them when they are sleeping.
I will be back in the office sometime on Christmas Day
Everyone have a lovely remainder of the week
Hugs Madi your bfff  and Mom

Tuesday Train Tale

 This is what is in the box...note at the arrow...what is says so I guess I won't get 
a box for keeps but just for a little while

Dad ordered this train.  They are not mass produced
so he had to wait  87 years for it to be made. OMCs is it heavy and is he a happy camper
 He took it over to Mr. Jerry's house.  Mr. Jerry is a retired electrical engineer.
He is programming Dad's train to run on the sound systems he has set up.  
Boy would I like to be a fly on the wall when these train brains run their new trains.
Because I know you are interested...I did a wee kitty interview with Dad about the train.
Dad give us a the cliff note version of what this train is all about!!

From the lips of Dad:  It is a model of a Southern Pacific SD9 (early 1950's era).
It is diesel and has a complete sound system built in to reproduce all the sounds of a real
engine including all the bells and whistles.

Below are two of Dad's favorite things toGETher!!

Monday Mews featuring Murphy

Right out of the gate I'd like to thank Ms. Diana aka mom to Oreo for organizing the
Blogville Gift exchange and Phod and Hailey's Lady for the wonderful Christmas card list.

 OMCs Madi, representative of F.L.U.F.F and newly appointed Blogville Dispatcher was very excited to learn Mayor Murphy 'drew' my name in the gift exchange.
FYI:  Murphy is a K9, I am a Feline so you know what that means

Murphy had to disguise himself as a Feline so he would be allowed over on the best dark side of the Pet store. Murphy good buddy a big meow of thanks to you for donning disguise just for little old me!!

Murphy evidently found the purrfect purrson in the Feline side of the store to help him.
I'm sure the disguise was what won her over too.

After I got over the shock of the YeoWWW!,  I enjoyed the mices but I will not share my greenies with them.

Short video that mom FINALLY added to YouTube...if you can't see it click here

But an even more handsome K9 with a million dollar smile and a heart the size of
of all the lovely state parks you visit!!

Murphy and Stanley...I know how much you enjoy hearing about the escapades of 
the Cat Scouts.  We went to the North Pole Yesterday here are a few photos

Cat Scout Madi
