Final non-Fiction, Nature and Feline Friday

Nature Friday host LLB Gang  and Feline Friday  host Comedy Plus

 Date: Monday, September 20, 2021
Time: 6 pm on a quiet early evening
Where: A small coastal in North Carolina
Event: single engine Cessna made and emergency landing in a farmer's field.   Top photo
Photos are from the town's FaceBook page take the next day Tuesday, September 21 just after lunch.

 Photo above is of the homes just feet away from the plane.
The home in the middle is where my daughter, SIL(son-in-law) and grandkitties
live.   This is the back of their home.  Thankfully there is a 3' wide x 5' deep ditch between their home and the farmer's field where the plane landed.

Final (non) Fiction Friday.

Now for the rest of the story:
Supper just competed for humans and kitties.
Daughter: tidying up kitchen with tv on
Son in law in the garage preparing to take recycle and trash bin to the curb.
Grand kitties in the family room taking their  25th nap of the day.
Daughter heard a noise like metal scrapping but thought SIL might have turned something over in the garage.
All of a sudden both kitties ran into the kitchen at mach speed.
Mia landed on the table, Frisco under the table. If you have ever been owned by a cat, you know they are prone to sudden burst of energy.  So this race into the kitchen did not concern my daughter.
About 30 minutes later SIL comes in the house Daughter asked
him what he turned over in the garage.  He said nothing...why. 
Then a few minutes later just as dusk is about to arrive he looks outside.
Casually says ummm what is that in the field. Daughter is reading says maybe a heron...No he says definitely not a bird it is huge.  She gets up to look and they both say 'it looks like a plane'.  Out to their deck the go YEP it was a plane.  All of a sudden emergency sirens are heard and vehicles start arriving from all the alphabet organizations:
Neighbors were all standing in the back total shock.
  It was determined the plane landed not crashed.  BUT WHY
By now it was dark and not much could be done.

Date: September 21, 2021
Time: Early afternoon
My daughter was working from home that afternoon, this is what she saw:
At this point she started videoing the event.
  Tow truck pulled the plane out of the field toward  a two lane road.
Road was closed, plane position on in the middle of the two lane road,
engine started and the plane took off under its own power.
It was determined the plane had a faulty fuel gauge. Thankfully the pilot must have been very skilled to immediately find a safe place to land.
This is a true story...with THANKFULLY a very good middle and ending.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #41


Angel Sammy and Teddy for the inspiring photos they find for us

Here is our inspirational photo is

When she was 13, she wanted a perm.
We tried to talk her out of it
About this she was firm.

Against better judgement an appointment was made!
She was eager 
Some things are best learned by doing!
With teenagers you pick your battles

Mom said to the Dad,
Follow my lead when she is home.
Sometimes saying nothing is best.

She looked very unhappy when she got in the car.
The smell of perm filled the car
My hair is too curly I look like Raggedy Ann
Mom said no worries when we get home we'll shampoo it
to relax the curls.

When in the door she walked,
Dad said WHAT do I SMELL?
If you have lived with a teenage girl,
you know hair is a BIG DEAL
No further words are needed for you to complete
this TALE.

The snake skeleton was just plain scary.
Not sure I'd wanna open that mailbox

Happy Tuesday with my Nephews

Dearest Auntie HiC and Uncle B

After a month of post-op recuperation, I’m happy to announce, I’m finally bootie-free❣️

Kat was my constant companion during the long, boring days. 

He didn’t seem to mind one bit at all, and I appreciated the attention. 

But I’m happy to say, today is the day I’ve been waiting for. 
Kat and Rocky  cheered me on from the front door. 

He is a video of my first yard Zooms in FUREVER~~

❤️ Pup

or you can paste the link below

Lovingly Pup who is well and Rocky and Kat my brudders.

Dearest Pup
Uncle and I are so very proud you what a good patient you were!! 
We give you 10**********
We thoroughly enjoyed you first run.  I am sure it was nice to feel the wind in your furs and to have a cool pleasant day for a run.
Kat, if we ever need a caregiver you would be the first on our list to call.  I must admit to being a wee bit jealous over how agile you are.  Any tips for Auntie?
What a precious adoring brudder you are to Pup.  Y'all were fast friends from day one.
Lovingly Auntie HiC and Uncle B!
