Wordless Wednesday Northern Lights in NC

Thanks to our 

Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus

I thank Kit, mom of my Furry Nephews for forwarding this information to me.

 The aurora borealis or Northern Lights captured last night March 23, early morning March 24, 2023.  Blue Ridge Parkway outside of Asheville, North Carolina.  I had no idea Aurora Borealis were ever visible this far South.


According to our local weather geek, it was caused by a an unpredicted geomagnetic storm . Aurora was seen all over N. America and  as far south as North Carolina and Virginia Mountains.!!!

HAPPPY TUESDAY Trip Prep with my furry Nephews

 

Thank you to our 

 Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus

Dearest Auntie HiC wish you were here.

Kat and I got a mani-pedi last week, AT THE VET, in preparation for our trip.  Of course that meant a mini road trip.  I was cool as a cucumber on the ride. 

Kat  can be heard not seen, here is the audio from the car!


Lovingly your Ginger nephew and his tabby brudder.

Rocky and Kat

**************


Dearest Auntie HiC my 4th Gotcha day was Friday, March 24th
Guess what I got for my Gotcha Day? A BATH! 
Mom bathes me w/ oatmeal, puppy shampoo because of my allergies.   She says I feel so silky! ❤️ 

Dearest Nephews it is wonderful idea to let you favorite Vet Tech give you a good mani - pedi. That way you'll be set for the duration of your trip.  Pup Auntie HiC has skin allergies too.  I use Dove soap for sensitive skin for my shower and Aveeno Lotion afterwards.  It has oatmeal in it too.

Love Auntie HiC

Symmetry Saturday

This home is in Country Club Estates.  We like riding around looking at all the 'estates'.  I'm very thankful I don't have the upkeep domestically or financially. LOL



JC Penney's Department store was torn down.  I miss it A LOT.
This most unusual monstrosity literally rose out of the ground where JCP was located since the late 1960's. It is one of the many new structures in North Hills a shopping center. It looks like the bow of a cruise ship.
It is across the street from the front doors of many homes.  The neighbors are not happy.  It is so tall they all sit in it's shadow.

Well here in Dixie Pollen Season is HERE probably for the next few weeks.  I rec'd an email from a young (mid 40's) friend.  This was the last line of her email.  We had spring in February and winter in March:


"Well, stay safe from the pollen! I’ve been seeing funny memes about how we are going to have  HOT summer b/c Mother Nature seasoned us all good with pollen and then put us back in the fridge to marinate so we better watch out for the heat of summer!!!"

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #111

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



Many years ago I made the decision

not to wear high or low heels

No matter the occasion.

I do not have dizzy spells

I am clumsy and don't pay attention

I can multitask.  

However; talking (a lot) while walking

Is not in my skill set.

Happy Tuesday Question from Kat and Pup

Good Morning to all our friends.  We recently told you the humans are busy busy getting ready for our annual trip in our Wheelie house. 

Thank you to our 

 Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus

Recently Mom sent Auntie HiC the below photos and email

 "I’m running around like headless πŸ”today. These 2 are following me continuously around the house. They finally gave up & settled in a sun puddle."

Our question is:

Have you ever heard your Mom say:

 "I’m running around like headless πŸ”today."
If so, what does it mean?  
We are 100% pawsitive her head is normal  and we know we did not hear any clucking.
So far we have not seen any eggs!!
MOL BOL LOL
 Lovingly your friends Kat and Pup

PS
 FYI Rocky marches to the beat of his own drum...nothing phases him.

We send this Irish Blessing to you all

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.


Shamrocks in bloom at Logan's

Saturday March 11, 2023 was the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in 
in Raleigh. It was about 45 degrees at the start of the parade.  The route is on what we all call 'the wind tunnel'.  No matter what time of year the Wendy Wind is always a blowin'.  I hope this man's kilt was possible weighted at the hem line?!


Sunday Mother Nature sent us a surprise
Snow and Sleet

This is Madi II aka our gray CR-V
It is just about the same shade of dark Gray as the original Madi.

Wordless Wednesday

 

Thanks to our 

Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus



When I saw these at the grocery store, I was wordless. 

   Thankfully Wikipedia had words 

 Pineberry is a white strawberry cultivar with red seeds and a pineapple-like flavor.[1][2]

Description

Pineberry is a hybrid. cross from Fragaria chiloensis and Fragaria virginiana.[1] A pineberry is smaller than a common strawberry, measuring between 15 to 23 mm (0.6 to 0.9 in). When ripe, it is almost completely white, but with red achenes (the seeds). The plant is disease-resistant, and highly priced, although not profitable due to small-scale farming, small berry size and low yield.[2][3] Pineberries are harvested in the spring and summer. First identified in South America around 2002, pineberries are cultivated in Belgium and exported from the Netherlands.[2][3]

Sunday Floral Selfies

 


Forest Pansy Redbud

A Beacon of Three-Season Color From spring to summer and well into late fall, the Forest Pansy Redbud stands out. Erupting in a sea of delicate pink blooms in springtime, the Forest Pansy is a brilliant sight to see – and its stunning display doesn’t stop there. As the hot summer days set in, so do heart-shaped leaves in a deep maroon hue. Its elegant, eye-catching foliage is full and lush.


Forest Pansy photo take March 8, 2023

She has put on quite a show for us this year.  This little jewel not only has purrty blooms she has a gorgeous shape.

Dear Friends...

We’ll probably be MIA for a while as we prepare for our RV trip. 

We hope to be on the road by April 1st, but Mom says there’s so much to do before our departure. Not sure what she’s talking about, as we’re always  ready. 😹
Enjoy this little video, & we’ll be in touch when we can❣️

Dear Nephews,
