Wordy Wednesday: Versatile Blogger Award

 Barking from the Bayou Boys: Pierre and Bentley tagged us with this lovely award..
We thank them and their assistant.  

Lastly, tell your nominator and readers 7 interesting things about yourself. 
Mom and I are seniors and aren't good a following rules.  Here are 7 things  we two seniors.  We'd love to share this award with EVERYONE... so grab the badge and start writing.


1. I am not nor was I ever a lap kitty
2. In 2005, Mom and Dad went to Alaska. I gained 2 lbs in 11 days. Needless to say
I did not let their absence get in the way of eating.
3. My paws have never touched the ground at least not after I was 2 months old.
4. I'm spoiled (I know that is a surprise)
5. I do not sit in anyone's lap!! Much to the dismay of Mom
(the first family kitty was 100% lap kitty)
6.I was a wild child when the peeps first brought me home.**
7.Once  I was lost for 2 hours...not to worry though I knew exactly where I was...sleeping
peacefully in Mom and Dad's closet.
1. I'm proud to say I can drive a stick shift
2. I was Senior Class Marshall in High School
(this means I kept order in the midst of chaos...good training for being Mom to a Diva Cat)
3. When I was about 3 years old I cut my own hair and I cut the hair of
the family Collie, Lady, and Lady's puppies. Luckily no humans or puppies were harmed!!
4. I took accordion lessons for 3 years.
5.When I was 5, I was caught in the act of eating a stick of butter.
6. I was also described as a wild child**
7. At 2 years old I was a cover girl on the Co-operative Exchange magazine.

(I know you've never heard of it. LOL My mom worked for the company.
I was on the Easter edition holding baby chicks.


  1. hahaha that was a mighty fine hiding place Diva Madi ;O))) we totally agree with your mom to handle a stick can be essential ... but it sadly will not work when you rent a small truck with column gear shift (we had no clue that such rides still exist) LOL

  2. WOW. We never knew Mom was a cover girl!

  3. Hari OM
    We learned some new things today about two of our dearest! You deserve to be recognised!!!(...congrats, though I have always wondered about 'awards' which require you to follow rules and tag others!) Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. These are cool things to learn about you both! My human can drive a stick too - in fact, she prefers it.

  5. I knew some of these things but others were very interesting and a surprise. Too funny about the butter! I can drive a stick, too and prefer it over an automatic! Great things to hear from you and your Mom, Madi!

  6. Now those are some fun facts about both of you. Driving a stick shift is fun. Have a great day.

  7. We enjoyed reading those! Congrats on the cool award!

  8. Great things to know about both of you. I love the magazine cover.
    I hope you have it framed in your house somewhere.

  9. I to can drive a stick shift and even the one on the column, but rather have automatic. lots of things we did not know about both of you, love the Cover Girl with chicks and I do remember the 'episode' of the missing Madi Diva.. on nooo on the butter. I would have been in the loaf of bread.. lol

  10. Hooray! Those were some fun facts! (Dad remembers a friend he had that used to eat sticks of butter like they were popsicles!) Oh, and thank you for choosing a photo of me for the Diva Slippers and Wizards group. (Ghostwriter has been so busy and tired lately with work and allergies and driving to Tonawanda to visit Oma.)

  11. That is just such a cute photo of you!

    Me and my brother were once caught with a very large pair of scissors while we were cutting each other's hair. Mine was done already and looked... different!

  12. Madi, your Mom is a cover girl:) Mom says eating a stick of butter sounds good to her, as she is a REAL butter lover, not the fake stuff. And when she was little, it was quite common to find her sitting in the pantry munching on unpeeled raw onions!!! To this day she loves onions prepared any way at all.

    Madi, we are going to predict that one of these days you WILL become a lap kitty.

  17. Miss M, no one would ever guess you are spoiled- though from a feline purrspective, you are just right. Cool stuff about your mom too, especially that cover pic.

  18. Yay! I love your answers. I can't believe that you aren't a lap cat! You were both wild as youngsters so that must be why your such a purr-fect match now ♥ Your were a precious child model.

  19. Perfect! You both are wild children :)

  20. MOL! Like mother, like fur child! Congrats on your award.

  21. Congrats on your well deserved award. Nice to learn more about you both. That is too funny that you gained 2 pounds while they were in Alaska. :) XO

  22. We always love learning more about our friends!! I love that both you and your Mama were "wild childs"
    Jakey, Arty & Rosy

  23. That's ok to not be a lap kittie, Madi. Lexi wasn't a lap dog, and you know how special she was anyhow.
    We didn't know your Mom was a "Covergirl!" Woo hoo, way to go, stick-driving-wild-child-cover-girl!


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
