Feline with Rocky, and Final Fiction Friday: Mystery solved

Feline Friday  host Comedy Plus

Dearest Auntie HiC
Like most of the country, it has been bitterly cold here. Fortunately, and thankfully, we didn’t receive snow or ice. Hope all our friends stayed warm and safe. ❤️
I haven’t been on the porch for several days, but I’m still getting plenty of exercise.  
Be sure to watch my video til the end for my finale!!  
Lovingly you Nephew Rocky

Dearest Rocky are quite well balanced and agile
Auntie would have fallen and busted her chin wide open(that is what Auntie's Mom always told her would happen when she was messin around). 
ROCKY OMCs OMCs again you did a somersault
and Pup thank goodness your nose was out of swatting range!!!
Lovingly your Auntie HiC

Breaking news from my furry nephews:  Our Mom thanks you all for your get well wishes and so do WE Three.  She sent this video to Auntie HiC last week before she got the creeping crud.  She is feeling better each day
Lovingly my Furry Nephews.

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #99


Kit, Mom of furry nephews, has the sickies...
She is very thankful for her devoted caregivers.

 Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy 

at Two Spoiled Cats

The partiers were shoulder to shoulder
They sang, they squealed they clapped with glee
As they shouted Happy New Year,
The mess they left for others 
Was something no one could UNSEE

Wordless Wednesday with Ernie


Thanks to our 

Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus 

For those of you who don't know ERNIE the ATTORNEY,
he lives in Western Pennsylvania.  He does not like snow.  When he is out in the snow, the snow freaks attach themselves to his lush long tummy furs

Awww Monday and FFF Reminder

 Thank you to our   

Host Comedy Plus  

New neighbors moved onto our cul-de-sac late summer.
I'm happy  share a photo of Maggie the furry member of the family.
She is an 11 1/2 year old Australian Terrier

Saturday December 10, we drove by this home
 there were dogs GALORE.
There were twice as many dogs on the steps and porch of this house.  A quick guess would be there were close to 50 pups of all sizes, shapes and colors

I think this was a 
Howl-i-Day Pawty!!

Friday December 30th is Final Fiction Friday

Happy CHRISTMAS EVE, EVE, December 23, 2011

Today Mom is going to share some of her favorite decorations
Note I'm front and center...maybe that means I'm Mom's favorite...
 Ceramic Nativity scene made by Dad's Aunt long, long ago
Stable made by my favorite brother-in-law


We are in the season of Fifty shades of gray except for the leaves that won't leave 
their trees.  Quite pretty 

My roving Photo Journalist Janice sent me this photo with an email.
She said she didn't think she had ever seen Cardinals eating flower blooms.
I don't think I have either.

Happy Tasty Tuesday


Thank you to our 

 Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus 

A few more favorite foods for the holidays

3 pounds of Christmas Collards
They are washed thoroughly, bunches cut into halves
While this step is taking place
a large pot of hot water, oil, salt, pepper and pieces of bacon are starting to boil.  Christmas Collards are placed in the water. They cook about 45 minutes.
I realize collards are an acquired taste and many don't like the lovely aroma they put off when cooking.  I was raised on them.  Their aroma tickles my nose and makes me happy 
and my mouth water.  

Please feel free to cut and paste my card
