FFF: A tall Tale, Nature and Feline Friday

Final (non) Fiction Friday.

Click here to visit YAM-s FFF

 Just before Bryan's shower on Friday morning, July 9, master bath ceiling light bulb died.   No problem he still had lights over the vanity.  No biggy we thought.  The ceilings downstairs are 9'.  He had to get the 6' ladder.  He got the globe off to find a surprise.  There was a very oddly shaped lightbulb. When he took it out we saw that it had a funky base.  Not a standard screw in. See below collage.  Obviously all the 87 light bulbs we had did not fit it.  So off to Lowe's we go for a funky bulb.  They didn't have any like that.  It even made the guy at Lowe's scratch his head.  All 3 of us walked up and down the light bulb aisles looking for one. Finally he saw a display of what looked like plug in nightlights.  But lo and behold they were adapters for a standard bulb to screw into then the prong in fits into the fixture. This 5 min chore took over an hour. LOL  

PS You all know Bryan is not allowed on tall ladders (a story for another day) but no worries I was hanging onto his leg.  Not sure that would have helped had he slipped but it made me feel better.

Nature photo from my friend Chelle's backyard in Florida

Hibiscus in full bloom

I finished my cat head here to see first post about it

Don't faint there isn't much red on the quilt.  Just a bit on the middle row of kitties.  Actually I bought enough fabric for the middle sashes and back of the quilt.  I didn't like it.
I went back to JoAnn's searching for backing.
When I saw the gray kitties with the pink and aqua, I knew it was a perfect

match the bedspread in the guest room.
This was also Angel Madi's favorite spot to mediate, nap and watch the neighborhood.

Wordless Wednesday


Thanks to our 

Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus

The Bluffs Lodge and Coffee Shop opened in 1947 when Doughton Park was still call the Bluffs Park.  They were an institution along the Blue Ridge Park way until being closed in 2011.  These are the last unused photos in from my June 2021 vacation file.

For Three Million bucks this beautiful land  could be yours
The Lodge has a serious case of mold, more than likely it will have to be torn down.

Note from the nephews regarding the adorable ladybug rocks on yesterday's post.
Their peeps collected the rocks during their trip to Colorado this past spring.
When they got home, they artistically turned them into ladybugs
If you missed seeing them, here is the photo again.

Happy Tuesday with my Nephews!!


Hosted by Comedy Plus   

Just a quick Peach 🍑 Report from GA. I give them 4 Paws  🐾 Down.🙀  I checked the labels, and they came from a farm (Lane’s) in middle Georgia, that usually has the BEST. 

They looked and smelled pretty good, but Mom said: YUCK! 😜
She said she’ll try again and keep you posted. 

We’re learning to embrace, and be thankful for all the rain we’ve received this summer.

There are so many regions suffering with extreme heat, and drought.

Take a minute to relax, and enjoy the peaceful Appalachian Rain. 

Next up is Kat starring in a 28 second video
Sound on:
two links of same video I think the first takes you right to the video

❤️ Kat, Pup, and Rocky 

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my precious Nephews.  Thank you for the email, photos and video!!
 Rocky, the thing very positive about the Peaches is  Y O U!!! They match your beautiful furs and are even a week bit fuzzy. Now as for the taste I 100% agree with Mom.  What the COD is wrong with peaches this year, especially the peachy STATE of Georgia?   NC normally has tasty ones too ours have been gorgeous, smell yummy BUT are so mushy just disgusting.  We love them here too but after 2 different times of buying them we haven't bought anymore.

Pup...I'm a sucker for your sweet face and adorable smile.  Coupling those 2 things with a Lady Bug and her gorgeous RED coat makes and Auntie HiC is on cloud 9 with glee!!  

What a messed up weather system everywhere. Everything is EXTREME: heat, rain and the horrible fires.   Kat darling I do so love the sound of rain and it appears you do too.  I spy your sweet white paw too. The music Mom selected for the video is PURRFECT
Lovingly your Auntie HiC
