Feline Thank you and Nature Friday

Dearest Auntie HiC

 Thank all our blog Furiends for the birthday wishes❣️

We asked Dad to buy Mom some flowers and new pots. She’ll stay busy/happy all day long.  He also bought her a mini chocolate cake.  We told her that our very wise Auntie HiC
said birthday cake does not have calories...

Dearest Nephews....OMCs you two know how to please your Mom.  I know how very much she loves flowers.
Tell Dad well done on the beautiful vase of red roses.
Wishing I was there to have a taste.
Lovingly Auntie HiC

My husband: trekking partner, aka Dad of Angel Madi, driver and best buddy is back.  After nearly 2 1/2 months of no trekking due a lengthy visit from Stewart Sciatica, the Itis Brothers, Bur and Art.  After 7 weeks of PT my guy and I took a 44 minute walk at Shelley Lake on Tuesday and a 50 minute walk on Wednesday. This is trail has lots of hills too. WooHoo 
Very thankful for excellent Physical Therapists at Raleigh Orthopedics

Here is today's inspiration 

When first I saw this photo,
a thought for it I could not spare.
As looked and looked and finally biggified,
my mind's eye saw the pair
had lots and lots of HAIR.

Happy Tuesday from Logan's and Seaboard
Top right garden flags:  Alexa Water me cracked me up.
Dollars to donuts someone has tried that.

Bottom Right.  This server statue is close to our favorite indoors table at Seaboard.  I suppose his forlorn look is due to having misplaced his tray

 Roxy and Dui, no longer blog, yet somehow these photos have made their way into the interwebs.  SHE (mom Tobi) sent them to me all the way from Australia.  I knew immediately they were worthy of Awww Monday.

Roxy still has no idea what to do about Naoise  the *Divine Feline in the house except obey her ever command.

Dui has learned what is Naoise's is hers and what is His is Naoise's

The Divine Feline

In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

The Heron caught me by surprise.  Just as I saw it on the edge of Lead Mine Lake,

it took off. Even with the limb in the way it was a great photo

Thoroughly Thankful and Poetic Thursday #69

Todayu I join
Brian's Home host of Thankful Thursday


Over Mother's Day weekend I received a very sweet box of goodness from my thoughtful, kind, loving, Daughter who knows me very well.  One dozen assorted cookies from Carolina Cookie Company in a beautiful tin with birds on it.
I am thankful every day for her love.

Soda Fountain 

If you ordered a banana split 
or a cherry smash, it was sure to be good
Life was good, you were Cool
Sitting at the counter
 turning and spinning on the stool
til you were nearly a drunk fool.
Those were the days

Happy Tuesday with my nephews

I'm late posting I put the wrong time on auto post.

I'm happy on any day I get an email from my 
nephews.  This one is especially special!!

Dearest Auntie HiC

 Mom found us in one of our favorite lounging spots; upstairs in the guest room.  She doesn’t go upstairs as much as she used to, which means our “purr-sonally” arranged pillows don’t get tidied up as often. Just the way we like it. 😹

Can you find Rocky? 🐈

Do you remember Cabbage Patch Kids? If not, you can read about them here . 
The company began here in Cleveland, GA. Mom received an original, soft-bodied baby in 1980, when they were still called  'The Little People', from a student, who was Xavier Roberts’ (creator) niece. Apparently,  Laura Jacqueline is now a collector’s item. ❤️

 Lovingly your nephews Kat and Cabbage Patch Kitty Rocky

Dearest Nephews OMCs did you bring back some memories with this post.  Your mom has her very on very precious Little Person,  Laura Jacqueline.  She is beautiful and such a pretty outfit.  I don't think I knew the company was in Cleveland, GA!! OMCs
Your kissin' cussin' Marlu had a cabbage patch doll. It was made by a friend at Auntie's work.  She had yellow hair in piggie tails and a blue polkadot dress with a white apron.

Pup, Kat and Rocky's mom often says:

Her favorite antique is a senior pet

Recently my neighbors were dog sitting Roxy.  They told me her story.
It began 12 years ago when she was found wandering alone near a lake. 
She immediately ran to the people when they called her.  No id tag or microchip. The family who found her took her to the Vet
for spaying, vaccinations and a serious clean up. 
The rest of her story is she became princess of her furever home and was named 
Roxy.  Right photo Roxy came over to visit me.  The next day I looked out my back door to see that sweet face looking in my door.

Daisy's life was charmed from the day Randy and Donna adopted her as a puppy 13 years ago. Daisy takes her parents for a walk several times a day by our house.  On this particular day Daisy had just returned from a day of pampering at the Dog spa.  About 15 months ago Daisy stopped eating.  Even losing a few ounces when you are an itty bitty girl is not good. Several vet trips indicated IBD.  Miraculously Donna found a yummy $$$ canned dog food for sensitive senior systems.  As you can see Daisy is doing quite well.

Serene Sunday

 EMW (early morning walk) May 1st.

This cul-de-sac has about five houses on it.  However, this position of this one makes it appear to be nestled back all alone.

Saturday Symmetry and a Squirrel

 This home is located along one of my 1 1/2 mile EMW (early morning walks) routes

Full disclosure:  A landscape architect lives here.

My roving photo journalist Janice sent me this email and photo

I have a suet feeder hanging on a shepherd’s hook in back natural area.  Check out the acrobatic and determined squirrel enjoying it!  He didn’t even run away when I opened the back door!  He may finish the duet cake before he stops 😂

Janice and I both wondered how he can digest upside down.

Earlier this week I received the below email from

Kit, mom of Rocky

 While I was playing WWF, I felt something on my head!!! 😹😹
