Furry Saturday SMILES

I love all creatures Great and Small 
in real life or cartoons


Cats keep their emotions a secret they always look the
same.  Once they 'decide' you can join their pride you KNOW
just how they are feeling.
We were owned by cats for about 31 years total.
I cannot tell you HOW many times visitors (non cat folks) would say 
oh they don't look very happy/friendly/like they are enjoying life.
For a while I tried to explain but finally I just decided it was my secret.
Treasured friends

Dogs wear their emotions outside you always know how they are feeling.
Having been 100% owned by a might mini Dachshund, Drabble always tickles me.
obviously the cartoonist is owned by one too.
Even nearly 40 years later we still laugh at Toto tales.
Being a Dachshund, he marched to his own drum beat he did not know he was
vertically challenged in his mind he was a Great Dane...he was fearless
and I loved that about him.

Feline and Nature Friday and reminder FFF

Dear Aunty HiC,
When Mom and I checked the bloggie. Mom was happy she’s not the only one who had never noticed the tabby M! 😹 Dad said the M means Mischief, but I’ve decided my M stands for Mr. Magnificent! Mom says I’m getting a little carried away with my handsome self. Teeheehee 
❤️ Kat Your Feline Nephew 

Dearest Nephew
Your Dad is too funny.  I think he is just trying to keep you grounded
so your head doesn't swell.  You wouldn't want to float up to the ceiling.
AND might I add..if anyone ever asks you what color your eyes are...
say Fern Green!!
Loving your Aunty HiC

Weather in NC is full of surprises:
As we like to say, if you don't like our weather wait 5 minutes it will change.
Today, for your viewing pleasure, I am showing you what
 humidity looks like.
This is NOT rain it is
96% humidity
Photo taken Saturday August 17, 2019.
The temperature last Saturday was 91 with feels like 101.

Featured also are my two house plants (that are miraculously still living).
Sammy the Snake Plant and Jada the Jade Plant.
Recently both were re-potted in to larger quarters.
Which is a good thing.  They get morning sun on the kitchen counters
and a sliver of afternoon sun here.

Ode to Mother Nature

The heat makes me feel beat
It makes me sweat from dawn til dusk.
Sometimes I smell like a musk (ox).

Sincerely Cecilia

Friday August 30th is!!!

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thankful Thursday

Today we join Two  SPOILED CATS 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.
Here is our photo challenge

I am not very good a fantasy but you know Me...
I'll try anything once.

by Cecilia

In a magical land where fairies and 
butterflies hide,
lives Mary a whimsical girl child.
Her mind's eye takes her to places
way up in they sky.
She bids us to join her on the path
to places you and I cannot 

Today I join 

I am thankful for my crazy Mind's Eye...there is no telling what
it will post here and for you all putting up with my craziness!!


While we are imagining......
  What would you do?
Yesterday while standing in line at my new favorite store....JoAnn's....
I noticed the lady at the cash register had a sticker about thigh level on her 
capris. It was about 4" in diameter.
 Questions:  Did she know it was there, what was written on it,
should I tell her? 
It was sideways so I turned my head a bit just to see if I could read it.
I could read VISITOR on part of it the other words were too small.
Some folks are sensitive/might think one a busy body for asking telling.
I knew I would want to know.  When she finished her transaction,
I said excuse me, 'is that sticker supposed to be on the left side of your capris?'
She quickly looked down, started laughing as she said absolutely not.
She went on to say it was on a pair of socks?!?
I thought I threw it away. Well I was pleased I told her; however,
it left me wondering why it would have been on socks.
That mystery will remain a mystery!!

Happy Tuesday: Kat

Hosted by Comedy Plus

Recently I rec'd this adorable photo from my nephew Kat!

Dear Aunty HiC, this is so interesting! Thanks for sharing!
Mom says my M stands for:
My Mom ❤️ Me!

❤️ Kat Your Feline Nephew

Dearest Nephew 
There are several stories out in the interwebs about the M

This story is for sure your story you were definitely sent to Mt. Harland by divine intervention
Lovingly Aunty HiC

Why does my cat have an M on his forehead?
All tabbies have an 'M' marking on their forehead, and on some this mark is very distinct. The 'Mis often referred to as 'the mark of the true tabby'. There are several amusing legends about how tabby cats got their 'M'. ... After a time a small cat with tabby markings jumped into the manger and snuggled next to Jesus.
