The party in Mom's head

Recently the Mom-a-razzi caught me napping so she started snapping.
When she downloaded the below photos,
the lyrics from Girl from Ipanema starting having a party in her head.
She took Artistic license to 
rewrite them in RED, original in small black print.

Long and lean with lovely furs of gray and white,
the kitty from Ipanema snoozes!
With each puff of kitty breath, each one who sees her goes Ahhhhh
Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking and
When she passes, each one she passes goes
When she wakes she sees the mom a razzi
she sighs a wee  cool kitty breath 
her head sways gently as she nods off
those who pass her go Ahhhhhhh
When she walks, she's like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle that
When she passes, each one she passes goes

 I watch her gladly
I return her blinkie blinkie I love yous!
She has my heart, I gave it gladly!
Each day, when she looks at me I see her beauty, 
she looks straight ahead, not a me!

But I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her, "I love you?"
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me
Long and lean with lovely furs of gray and white,
the kitty from Ipanema snoozes
When I pass, I smile but she doesn't see, no she doesn't see she is in dreamland and not with me!

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking and
When she passes, I smile but she doesn't see, doesn't see

Flower Friday with Rosy

Ohhhh look at all your smiling faces...just because it is




My Bunny Spring and I would like to show you what's blooming outside our window.







Recently my Uncle (dad's brudder) G send mom this picture.

Before we show it to you, let me just say
Uncle G is a Violet Whisperer. He has at least 87 violet plants
and he has the purrfect room for them to thrive.
Mom told him he had a VIOLET Thumb!

He told mom
 This plant started from a single leaf 18 months ago,


Red bud just as it started blooming,
There will be more later in full bloom.  
This is the first year the red bud and dogwoods have bloomed at the same time.

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday

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




Train Brain:  Ode to Dad
By Madi and Mom
Trains of all sizes, shapes and colors are Dad's thing.
His hobby though is small trains.
Tools of his trade can be found 
here and there and all around.
What they do ....  I have no clue.
But that is ok 'cause Dad DO.
He works magic
You see he is an O scale model train man with a plan.
The pieces are so tiny he needs a 
high power lamp, itty bitty screw drivers 
and lots of clamps

Once I even saw him with a saw.

He orders brass shells,
carefully adds details 
he solders on parts and pieces
making them exact replicas 
of big trains.



I must confess his train room can be a mess
We don't touch any piles because it might cause him stress.
 I know MY DAD IS A GENIUS at this because mom calls him
a Train Brain.
