Happy St. Patrick's Day on Caturday Art Day

If it is Saturday, we are having fun with 

Mom and I thank our favorite Jersey Girl, Chelle, who now lives in Florida
for this lovely photo taken in Washington Oaks State Park.

Now a little Mom art...before she was the old gray mare she used to 
cross stitch A LOT.
Above the bed where I rest is a cross stitching mom did called
It is a favorite of Mom's

In case you can't read it...Mom typed it for you.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields 
and until we meet again, 
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I think this is a very nice place to nap and mediate

THE OLD GRAY MARE has been fighting a losing battle with
eye allergies. It all started as they walked at the mall on 3/2..
demolition to a shop was causing all kinds of debris and dust to float in the air.
They left immediately but not before adhered to her contacts.
She awoke the next day to very swollen and itchy eyes.  
She has been to the eye doc 3 times in 2 weeks.
The RX eye drops she was using ran down onto her face, she has very sensitive skin, drops caused an allergic on her face. Now she is a splotched OGM.
She has med for that now...
THUS I have given her Sunday off...but we will return on
Monday, March 19, 2018.
Hugs Madi and Splotchy
Mom discovered that baby oil feels really good to her itchy eye lids
but it makes it very hard to see.

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday

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

This was a very WET picture!!

by Mom with Madi's assistance

As you can see, this is a picture of the sea.
Rest assured that speck in the sea is not me.
You see I have a see-cret about the sea.
Only my toes goes in the sea.
My toes I must clearly see or else the sea is not for me.
As a child, a visit to see the sea gave me much glee.
I waded waist high with the sun in the sky.
I squealed as the waves made it difficult to see.
My toes loved the feel squishy wet sand.
Then one summer, in the middle of July, the sight I saw
in the sea gave me such a fright. 
No matter how hard I wished. there was no way I could 
all those (Portuguese) Man of War jelly fish floating about like they 
owned the sea. 
From that day forward being in the sea was not for me.

Tuesday Mail Tale

TOGM orders my compounded phosphorus from Roadrunner Pharmacy in 
Arizona.  OMCs are the quick as greased lightning getting it here too
They always tell you to allow 5 days but it comes in a nano second and
they always include toys for me.  First order came with two red fetch toys...
Divas don't fetch so we're gonna give those to Sissy for Mia and Frisco.

 My second order came last week with this adorable stuffy.  He is very very 
soft and very very cute BUTTTTTTT.....

Sweet 16 today

Today in honor of my sweet 16 birthday we are having a blog hop.
We thank Mayor Arty, Jakey and Rosy Sassypants Mama for setting it up for us.

I thank Ann at Zoolatry for my beautiful Header.

I'm 16 and I'm taking Driver's do you think I'm doing so far.
Honestly I did exactly what my instructor told me to do.
I turned left but I migh've been a wee bit heavy pawed on the gas.?!

Mom found this poem in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Lovin' Our cats. It describes Moi purrfectly.
It was written for a male cat. Mom changed it to fit this Diva.

Under her Spell


Tami Sandlin
I can feel her watching me
Through golden eyes, unblinking
And I can't help but wonder
Just what it is she is thinking.
I know her habits, I know her ways
But her moods are hard to tell
The only thing I know for sure is
She knows I'm under her spell
For eating she has claimed my nicest dish
To nap, my favorite chair
And anytime I want to sit,
She is comfortably resting there.
For play, she's got expensive toys
To chase and romp and caper
But still she is only happy with
A balled-up piece of paper!
She is always begging for attention
To be scratched beneath her chin
And when my writing takes me away from her
She steals my writing pen!
Despite our unique relationship
People ask "Just who owns who?"
It's really nice to have someone
To look forward to come home to.
And so, I stay enchanted with
This crazy pet of mine
For nothing keeps you spellbound
Like a furry finicky feline.
I am not the first girl to turn 16 in this house.   Lo and behold my Sis aka Big M as dad called her for a very long time, turned 16 here too.  So I send Big M aka Human sissy a big thanks for all she taught them.
Sissy (on the left) and her bestie Kathy holding their
Sweet 16 tshirts. They both 
had all the same friends so their shared their 16th bday at
Pizza Hut.  Sissy's bday is August 28 and Kathy's September 5
We feel the need for speed!!! NOT!!! 
A grand time was had by all.....after the 16th party is 
where our Driving story began a year before.
Sis(l), Kathy (r)

Today I will share a story about my sis learning to drive.
Sis got her learner's permit shortly after her 15th birthday in
August of 1986. Every weekend and holiday from that day forward
Dad took Sis to parking lots to practice her driving. He set up little fun 
obstacles for her too.  Mom went also but she sat in the back seat ...but she never 
did any back driving because Dad was a EXCELLENT teacher.  As sis became 
accustomed to driving and judging distances, they started driving around residential 
areas on the weekend and finally on city roads and the beltline.
Sis was a really good driver.

At the beginning of 1987, Sis started making a deal with mom about
what she wanted to do on August 28, 1987 after she passed her 
driving test....yep she was quite confident she would pass.

 On August 28th, Mom drove Sis to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)
for her driving test.  The DMV office was half way between home
and where Mom worked.   Sis's asked mom if she would let her drive Mom to work 
KEEP  the car for the day to do some errands during the day. Mom agreed to this deal,    
 'cause she was pretty sure Sis would forget.  The joke was on Mom.
Sis had a memory like an Elephant and her breaths smelled like peanuts.
Sis PASSED with flying colors and  mom kept her promise.
Mom said watching sis drive out of the parking lot ALONE that day
was the scariest and proudest moment of her 16 years as a Mom.  She was confident in sis
but it was all the other crazies on the road that worried her.   Mom watched her for as long
as she could see her.  Sis promised to call mom when she got home from her errands to let her
know she was SAFE.   The people in Mom's office said mom was a nervous wreck until
Sis called to let her know she was home. When it was time for Sis to come back for Mom,
it was rush hour. Mom paced the floor and kept looking out the window.
 Lo and behold sis arrived on time and drove mom home in the very busy traffic
and as they say the rest is history!!!!!

I would like to thank
Pipo, Dalton and Petcretary Ingrid for this beautiful card!!

Great big thank yous to Zoey, Dougie Dog and Miss Ann at Zoolatry for my hot pink wheels!!
