Final Friday F(t)hanks and Funnies

 Greetings from my white throne
I rec'd a few more cards and would like to say thank you to
1. Raz, Allie,
3.Cat Scouts Tiger, Dora, Trouble, Spooky, Holly and Jim
Mom and I shared greetings from
4.Elliot, Cricket and Mom Lynne 
5. Cody, Dakota and Mom Caren
6. Scout Denmaster Karen and family

Mom's auto correct has a serious attitude most days and she never knows what it will type.

Now for the funnies:
We expect everyone, at some point during a day, has a crazy auto correct word pop up in their email or on their blog.  We thought it would be fun to as you to leave some of  your crazy  
auto corrects in the comments today.

Here are a few classic ones from us:

Mafia instead of Madi

At least once a day mom will look at her iPad and see that it has decided to change my name to Mafia.

Precious vs. Previous
Many years ago mom send a message to her friend whose husband had been very sick.
Mom thought she typed: "how is your precious husband doing?"
Then horror upon horrors upon horrors after she hit send she saw the sentence said:
"how is your previous husband doing?"
Mom was mortified, she immediately sent a CORRECTION; however, at the same time she rec'd an email from her friend.  Saying oh my word that was the best laugh I have had in years....and boy did we need it.  Turns out precious husband was doing well.   

Finally the funniest one from my human Sissy.
Sissy keeps her grocery list on her Smart (Dumb)phone

Sissy was breezing thru Walmart buying groceries she checked the next thing on her list...
it read:

One little Ethiopian 

Sissy told mom she stopped right in the middle of the aisle and read it out loud...
(thankfully no one was around).  She thought what in the world was that supposed to be and was quite surprised she knew how to spell Ethiopian.  When she got home she was not missing anything that she needed and never to this day figured out what she meant to type.

So now tell us some of your craziest auto correct or typing faux pas!!

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday

Today we join Two  SPOILED CAT 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.

New Year's Eve is the photo Angel Sammy and his brudder Teddy selected this week.

New Year's Eve

*First Night is what we call here in the City of Oaks.
The celebration starts in mid afternoon for kids and old folks
(who fall asleep at ten in their den).
The peeps have never been.
The crowds of crazy womens and mens running around like banshee hens
would surely send them over the deep end.
They sometimes watch it on the TVeees.  
Just before the stroke of midnight in town.
A crane begins to lower a ginormous metal (oak) acorn down to the ground. 
Yep you read that right an oak acorn and that is no joke. 
There was doubt about its appearance this year.
A careless bloke was moving it to be cleaned up.
The chain broke and holy acorns it fell with a bang
it got dented on the side and some of the metal bent.
Acorn EMS was called to the scene.  External damage minor
but repairable was declared.

Below is an excerpt from a recent news story it gives you some stats on 
the acorn.
Crews hit a snag with what may be the one acorn in the city they want to keep from hitting the ground.
Workers on Wednesday postponed their efforts to relocate the 1,250-pound, steel acorn from Moore Square to South Salisbury Street when the sculpture didn’t fit on a new base its artist had designed for it.
The 10-foot-tall, 8-foot-wide acorn is used during the New Year’s Eve celebrations in City Plaza.
The city had invited the media to watch crews relocate the acorn from Moore Square, where it had stayed since 1991, to a spot in front of the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts.

*For those who are interested in reading all about First Night 
and all the festivities

Tuesday Tale of Christmas Morn

After Christmas breakfast, we thoroughly enjoyed watching
Yule Logs on HALLMV, Hosted by Happy the Ginger cat and Happy the white Dog.  I hope everyone got a chance to see some of it.
Beautiful music played for 3 hours (no commercials) and there were kitties and puppies and a little
piggie running to and fro.  

Then Mom helped me open my very aromatic package from my Guy Raz!!!

OMCs the very first thing I opened was a Meowy Christmas Scarf.
In all my 15 3/4 years I have never NO never worn anything...I have gone thru
my entire life nekkkkked until 12/25/17

Thank you Raz and your sweet Mom for remembering me and
