Feline and Nature Friday


Nature Friday host LLB Gang  and Feline Friday  host Comedy Plus

My Feline Nephews
I thank, Kit, my feline photo journalist and Mom to the nephews, for sharing this adorable photo

About 10 days ago the staff of Murphy and Stanley took them on a short trip in their home on wheels.  They went to Twin Falls, Idaho
Snake River
Twin Falls is a city in southern Idaho. It’s known as a gateway to Snake River Canyon, which lies just to the north. At the canyon’s eastern end, Shoshone Falls cascades over a broad series of rocks. Trails along the canyon rim lead to the towering Perrine Bridge, 
which offers panoramic views and is a popular launching point for BASE jumpers. At the town’s northern edge, Perrine Coulee Falls tumbles over a cliff. ― Google

Bridge at Twin Falls the itty bitty specks on the bridge are cars.

Of course Bob and Carol took their bikes
Bike trail overlooking falls.

Normally there is more water but that area has been extremely dry
Side note temperatures on their trip were in the triple digits.

They also visited the site of Evel Knievel's motorcycle ramp

Robert Craig Knievel (/kˈnvəl/; October 17, 1938 – November 30, 2007), professionally known as Evel Knievel, was an American stunt performer and entertainer. Over the course of his career, he attempted more than 75 ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jumps. Knievel decided upon his nickname after spending the night in a jail cell after illegally attempting a stunt. He was in a cell next to a gentleman called Arthur Knauful [pronounced nor-full] who because of his vicious behaviour had gotten the nickname “Awful Knaufull” which led to Robert coming up with the nickname “Evel Knievel”.

 Evel Knievel built for practicing his stunts.

I thank, another photo journalist, Carol for these absolutely stunning photos she shared.

Happy Tuesday with Rocketman aka Rocky

Thank you Comedy Plus for hosting 

Last Wednesday I received the following email from Mom of Rocky, Pup and Kat: Mom Kit sent me a photo of their mantle and their beautiful pottery.  I prepared a little re-enactment.

When I came in from cutting the grass, Rocky was on the mantle. 😜He must have jumped from (cold) wood stove.  But we are not sure so we are asking our friends what they think? Did he take route 1, 2 or 3?

He looked quite proud of his accomplishment until I helped him down. Sitting in the middle looking for are safe way down!! I helped him!! I have my most expensive collectible pottery pieces by John Meaders and family, a local potter, on my mantle. I thought they were safe?!MOL 

I taught his grandchildren now I need to teach Rocky.

  CLICK HERE to see other beautiful pieces.

Dearest Rocky(man) Uncle and I had a great big giggle at your latest feline trick.  OMCs if a cat wants to go some where IT WILL.  It amazes be how agile you felines are though.  Angel Madi loved the mantle and amazed that her back feet appeared to have eyes on them.  I am confident you Mom will be sure you UNLEARN this new trick.  
Lovingly Auntie HiC
