Silly Saturday with the letter U

Last week while visiting Ellen at 15andmeowing I read that they were participating in a fun game.  with their friend Stunning Keisha’s game. Every answer has to start with the first letter of your last name.
I wanted to see just how many I could answer with
U
Every answer has to start with the first letter of your last name. No googling answers allowed. 
Surprisingly I answered each one...a few I used my cre8tive license and I did not
Google any!!

Nature and Feline Friday: Crepe Myrtles and Rocky


Thanks Comedy Plus for hosting Feline Friday

Thanks LLB Gang for hosting Nature Flower Friday

July in NC most living things wilt when outside
However, Crepe Myrtles are at their best in the heat..
Buds ready to pop open, gorgeous blooms of lavender and yellow


We have four along the side of our house.  They are blooming like crazy
each one has branches full of these beautiful blooms



Rocky's Mom made this adorable video via Tik Tok be sure your sound is on.

The tune is called “Run!” I’m a tiger! Roar! 🐅


Dearest Auntie HiC
Mom doubled speed of video, so I’d look super stoked, ha! 

MOL MOL MOL MOL MOL
It worked you looked super sonic stocked.
Rocky I love it.  Looks like you might have had one stiff sniff of
Catnip!! I love it.

Lovingly your Auntie HiC

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #30


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


Here is today's inspiration


Watermelon 

Small but mighty nothing she can't handle
She tackles it head down.
What else is a wee girl to do? 
When she has no teeth,
grab hold with her tiny hands
lean forward doing what she does best
face plant into the cool, juicy melon
suck in all the sweetness she can.

Personal note here: 
My Annie Ma used to serve it a lot to the grandchildren.
It made for hours of entertainment.  Lots of news paper spread on the picnic table. Several huge melons cut on the picnic table, it was a free for all.
We wore our bathing suits...they just hosed us off when we were finished.  I tired it once or twice but really didn't like it, I did enjoy the hose down and
seed spitting though.

Word(y) Wednesday with Rocky



Hi, it’s me, Rocky.
Mom is in basement, and I’m helping her play WWF.
I just made the word “catnap”. Teeheehee!!! 😹
😻 Rocky Your Feline Nephew




Dearest Nephew Rocky you are such an inspiration...now that I have this photo 
I can picture how you and mom look when playing WWF.
I think this might make a purrfect blog post for Words With Friends Wednesday!!

My job is that of Best Bear Alert in the State of GA

Lawn Pup. BUTT I am here to cheer you on.

Hugs and lots of love

Mom asked me to tell you all that we live right on the edge of the
Chattachoochee National Forest...we are very respectful
of all the wildlife here. We live very close to their home and 
try our very best to coexist peacefully.

Awww Monday and Sparks







I am a collector of Sea Shells
I am especially proud of my Sand Dollars and my sea sponge
These sand dollars are at least 40 years old.




As you can see in the bottle I have several of the shells shown on the Sparks Quote


North Carolina is proud of the Scotch bonnet. So proud, that with the urging of the N.C. Shell Club, the state General Assembly saw fit to anoint the Scotch bonnet as the official state shell in 1965.




There are several Scotch Bonnets in this jar.

B-DAY CAKE ON THE COLDEST DAY 


 SHE LET ME LICK LOOK AT IT
ACTUALLY I GOT WITH IN A NANO INCH
FROM THE BLUE FLOWER BUT SHE JERKED IT AWAY
LIKE I HAVE COOTIES

 THEN SHE PUTS IT BACK IN THE BOX
SO I'M LOOKING FOR ANOTHER ROUTE
 I DECIDED TO JUMP ON IT
 BUT SHE MOVED IT SO I HAD TO 
MAKE A DEATH DEFYING LEAP 
 GUESS I SHOWED MOM THAT SHE 
CAN'T FOOL ME

THE CAKE WAS CHOCOLATE CHIP ICE CREAM IN

I DON'T LIKE ICE CREAM BUT I LIKE TO 
TEASE MOM
