Our  FFF story is timely
This is a picture of our digital wall clock in the office.

When our daughter was about  5 years old,  digital watches were becoming the latest craze.  She asked us if she could get watch. Her Dad asked her to tell him what time  was displayed on the radio screen.  At that particular moment it was 
She replied
one one dot dot one one.
Her Dad said no digital watch til you learn how to tell time on a regular watch. To this day, anytime we see 11:11 digitally displayed we giggle.
She did learn how to tell time on an analog clock first.  Anytime we are all together at 11:11 we laugh she rolls her eyes.

Feline Friday Flashback

Madi was always in the middle of everything we did!


  1. Gail says: teaching children how to read old style clocks can have its issues too. My mother apparently told my older brother that when both hands were pointing straight upwards it was lunchtime. Unfortunately, producing meals to a strict timetable was not one of my mother's strong points (she was much better at teaching her children), but after that she never got any peace unless the midday meal appeared exactly at midday!

  2. That was funny about the clock! What sort of bird is that? I think maybe a robin, but if so they have a much larger patch of red on their chest than ours do.

  3. Love seeing Madi again!!
    That is funny story about the time.
    Just about every hour around here is "time to make the donuts".

  4. Hari OM
    Oooh, look, a Robin and a Rabbit - busy yard! Loved the tale of the time-teller talking in binary - and a remembrance of Madi never goes amiss!!! YAM xx

  5. Interesting, for very different/personal reasons. I have yet to understand why, but for many years now, at least once a day, I will glance at a clock, anywhere-somewhere: and see either 1:11 or 11:11. It never fails. It is everyday. It has mystified me for such a long time now. There is something in my head that says "someday that time will have a meaning for me" ... yet unknown. It may show on my car clock, my bedside clock, my cell, my computer: but it is there without fail.

  6. Love the part about your daughter and the digital clock reading. I laughed out loud. What a joy this is.

    Love the bunny and the kitty. Hidey holes are fun to find.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Big hug. ♥

  7. That's such a cute story about the clock and one your daughter will never forget. We love seeing the Madi flash back too.

  8. What a wonderful story about 11:11 - and what FUN it must be to tease her about it to this day! Love the photos of Angel Madi.......I love that cats are curious and want to be involved in EVERYTHING.

    Hugs, Pam

  9. love the story of the clock. my first cousins granddaughter is 28 and has a 12 month old baby. she can not tell time on a clock. my cousin was shocked when she said Erin what time is it and she said don't you have a real clock? Andrea has only CLOCKS in her house.. I am giggling because the microwave clock was wrong a few days ago. no idea why. I went to set it to 9:28 and could not get it to work. it is new and when we got it I set it easily... it took more than a few moments to realize it wanted 09:28.

  10. Love the eleven-eleven story! Hi Madi♥

  11. There is something about 11:11. Mom sees that a lot. We always love seeing Angel Madi.

  12. Cute story about your daughter. :) And very sweet photos of Angel Madi. XO

  13. Funny! Good to see our dear Madi today.

  14. Madi was always such a good "helper" BOL

    Such a cute bunny and such colorful azaelas, they don't have azaleas here...or rhodies either!
    Good catch on the robin and bunny! Rosy will have an interesting bunny story to share next week.

    I wonder if children even learn to tell time on analog clocks anymore...

  16. We saw a big, fat bunny in our yard the other day too! Chester chased it, but he can't run as fast as he used to. Oh, and his kitty cat cousins, Tibie and Hanni like to get into everything their human is doing too.

  17. Howdy bunnies! Lovely flashback with Angel Madi. I love the one one dot dot one one, I'll think of that now everytime it is 11:11 on our digital clock.

  18. It;s always nice to see memories of Angel Madi.

  19. I always love it when memories are shared, and those fun family memories truly are the best too!

  20. Madi liked to stay busy! Those are the funny memories that keep on being funny. We never get to forget those moments.. Ha!

  21. Those are the best memories

  22. Cute robin with the rabbit! I have often wondered how today's children learn to tell time! Have a great day!


Please leave a meow or bark for Angel Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
