Saturday Color and Symmetry

Overnight our leaves went from turning colors, to turning loose

But oh what a beautiful carpet of leaves we have

Back yard is golden, side yard is red...

Feline and Nature Friday...the 13th


We thank our Host LLB Gang and Comedy Plus

 Feline Wisdom as seen on Mutts, by Patrick McConnell,

Mutts does not allow copy and pasting so I have recreated it
BECAUSE it reminded us so very much of Madi.
She loved beds and she loved to Meow. She meowed more her first day here than our first cat
meowed in all of his 14 1/2 years.
Below are the words that were in the cartoon panels
"No matter what yesterday was like, CATS always start a new day with a 

Photo in the bottom right has always been a favorite. We did not witness how Diva Madi got in the middle of the pillows without any falling out of place. Some itty bitty paw prints on the green and white pillows gave us a clue.

Thanks LLB Gang for Hosting Nature Friday

Thanks Comedy Plus for hosting Feline Friday

On Friday October 30(the day after T.S. Zeta literally BLEW thru NC)
we took a most enjoyable ~hour walk (I stopped for lots of photos).
The trail was covered in a thick layer of pine needles from all the wind.
It was so thick I could feel it through my New Balance shoes.
It was a beautiful day and for once I will offer no commentary.  
We were on the Shelley Lake portion of the Capital Area Greenway
All the water you see in the photos are babbling brooks, creeks and tributaries.

Monday we took this very trail...the asphalt trail is now covered.

Thankful and Poetic Thursday #45 November 12 recreation

Thankful Thursday hosted by

 I unintentionally deleted the post for today and cannot retrieve it.

Including my Poem for today... I was able to about 99% rewrite it.

Thankful Thursday was for this lovely photo from Murphy and Stanley's Mom

My Nephew Kat sent you a lovely thank you email for all your
kind comments while he was dealing with Pancreatitis 
It is 100% back to being his frisky feline self

He and Pup were out for a walk

   Today we join Two  SPOLED CATS 

Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.

Here is today's inspiration

Take my hand I'll guide

Together we will ride

Alone no longer

Together we are stronger


I am also very Thankful that each of you visit each day and take the time to

leave a comment.  When I lost the original post I thought I lost the 

comments but I found them and have pasted below.

Beautiful photo. I am glad Kat is better. XO
I'm sorry about that, honey. I hate when I do this. Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Hugs. ♥
We are SO happy to hear Kat is feeling better!! Lovely poem and beautiful NB picture!!
That is definitely a different type of sculpture. Did it fall over?

We're very glad to hear that everyone is doing all right now. It's fun to poke around in the crunchy leaves, isn't it? Hooray for the wheelchair racers! And thanks for the beautiful picture of Utah! Pleas say hello to Murphy and Stanley and their peeps for us!
I'm glad you're feeling better, Kat. I'm sorry that all that target practicing scared you. Love the poem and that is a beautiful shot of Utah. Wow. Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, honey. Big hug. ♥
I just love good news, yay Kat! Beautiful photos today, I'm sorry for the loud noises, I'll never understand why someone wants to ruin a perfectly peaceful day - but I guess some hobbies are not for everyone.
We're glad to hear Kat if feeling better. Our house is in an area where you can shoot guns too (a bit in the sticks) and we don't like it when the neighbors start target practice while we're playing outside too. Your poem was great too.
We are so glad that Kat is feeling better and yes, that target practice thing is scary, that's why they have shooting ranges. WOW, that mountain view is amazing. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
That is very good news that Kat has recovered from his pancreatitis. I am sorry the thoughtless neighbours scared you, Pup. Lovely poem for the picture too.
I got so worked up over the gunfire I didn't comment on your poem. Wonderful words for the picture of smiling competitors!
I am thrilled you are feeling better Kat! Target practice, hunting and endless fireworks... three of many reasons we left the Tiny Ten. I'm good with hunting season, at least you know the time frame. Target practice on rural property does not make sense to me. There are plenty of shooting ranges where people can practice. I am so sorry Pup was scared and Kat nervous on a quiet walk on their own property.
Love your inspirational poem and the picture! We are so happy that you are feeling fine and frisky, Kat! I"m with you, Pup - I wish these scary noises never existed.
I know people have the right in some areas to do target practice but it frightens me and I'm glad it's not allowed in our County - there are places out and away from people where people may shoot guns. Just hearing the sound frightens many people (including me). You really wrote a magnificent poem for the photo this week too - it's exactly what WE saw when we found the photo online. <3 Love, Pam
oh wow oh wow on the last photo. goregous. i am so sorry Kat and Pup were frightened, it is against the law in our neighborhoods to discharge a gun, but we don't have beautiful woods to see. just house and houses.. we still sometimes get the nutty neighbors shooting bow and arrows and bb guns.. and the idiots who put out rat poison and killed my owl. so very happy that kat made a quick recovery and Kat you look wonderful, tell Pup he is looking so handsome.. C. love your short and to the point perfect poem for that photo. we are fine, ETA came and left, leaving lots of debri and a downed tree, and tons of water but we are safe
yes together you are stronge and you can stand even da neighbors with da loud noises ;O)
So pleased that Kat is frisky again. But that's too bad about Pup's noisy neighbours. What a lovely inspiring poem. And always nice to see a picture from the Doodz neck of the woods. Toodle pip! Bertie.
Hari OM Good news and fine views with inspiring verses all bring a sigh and a smile... YAM xx
Kat that is excellent news. I'm so glad that you are feeling frisky and better. Sorry you were scared Pup. Good poem for the inspiration picture. What a beautiful view.
