Final Friday Fiction and Flower power

Today we are once again thrilled to be pawticipating in YAM-Aunty's
Blog hop link at the end.


We selected lines 8, 12 and 16 from page 87 in a book as our prompts.
Book: Who's Kitten Who?
charming scene
The person
on my way 
A story/kinda poem in honor of our 9th blogaversary on June 27, 2018

Way back in '09 when I was seven 
Mom was not an Old Gray Mare,
she came upon a charming scene.
She found another world called blogspot, it was filled with animal blogs.
Back then she was a looker but in fact she was a lurker.
She went in and out into different blogs as quiet as a mouse; she never let the authors know she was in their house.  Each delighted and
amused her. She said to herself, next time on my way in,
I want to find the person who lovingly writes and snaps these precious
photos.  I know I can do this for I am a woman with a cat hear us roar.
She learned how to comment on blogs.
She made friends and asked questions and in no time at all
it was obvious she was home no more to roam.
Everyone was kind and helpful....in no time at all
we had a blog spot we gave it a name.
It started out as Down Home in NC; however, it was obvious
from day one it was gonna be all about me.
It quickly became Madi and Mom: Downhome in NC.
We made friends galore
East West South and North
Even all the way across the Pond.
To all of you we say thank you for stopping by
to say hi and NOT being lurkers.
THE END Madi and Mom

Here was my very first photo mom posted.

Flower Friday with my niece Rosy SassyPants


Last Friday we featured the only thing that is blooming in our yard
three beautiful mature Crepe Myrtles....FAST FORWARD to 
Tuesday, June 26, 2018...

It rained all day just steady moderate rain..not tstorms but we rec'd 1" of rain
This is the fullest they have bloomed in 2 1/2 years but we learned some value information. Rain and fully blooming crepe myrtles cause the blooms
to become so heavy with water the limbs bent nearly touching the ground.
Thankfully none of the limbs broke off.  



  As of Thursday, June 28, the tree below is about standing up to its full height.
Dad is purrty sure some of the limbs won't recovery but we are waiting.

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday

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



Here is today's photo prompt
mom and I struggled with this one. MOL


Oh Me, I must have eaten organic nip 
 I awoke in a land so strange.
Oh Me, maybe I am on a magic carpet trip.
I hope I don't land on the tip of the pyramid or the prickly palm.
Oh Me, surely I'm tripping 'cause now
I see a pond in front of me and a lady with a stroller, 
Oh Me, I see sand but not in a pan, no matter 
I must peepee and then I'll flee.

Tuesday Tale

I must be becoming a Mellow Meow in my old age...
I recently shared the love seat with mom.  Mom didn't have the camera and did not want to chance moving for fear of disturbing me.  I believe in my cat-a-tonic
state, I heard her bellow to dad, please bring the camera. She took 87 photos.
Here is a collage of a few of the 87.
I was resting comfortably; however, Mom's paws kept moving.  It was either rolling with the motion, a Dramamine or leave. 
As you can see, in the left bottom photo I told mom to talk to the tail the Cat was not interested

Monday Sparks and Final Friday Fiction

Today we are pawticipating in 
McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks blog hop
This hop is all about spreading cheer and positive vibes via quotes.


Mom and I will be pawticipating in this Monday fun spreading pet cheer and positive vibes.




Mom thought this photo of me was especially purrfect for a Sparks post...
if you look closely at my photo it looks like there are sparkles on my furs
we don't have a clue WHY.  Except mom was sitting on the top
step, the camera was on the landing (which is what I'm looking at and wondering 
what in the world woman you have lost your mind).  She snapped the photos from that angle


REMINDER
Friday June 29th  is YAM-Aunty's rules are here




Select lines 8, 12 and 16 from page 87 in a book write a poem, a story or 
whatever and jump on the hop.
