 Same day different block

This reindeer at Logan's was actually very cute..and a perfect way to make sure folks see the Toys for Tots Box which is a US Marine Corps Reserve Holiday event.

Nature and Feline Friday

   Nature Friday host LLB Gang   Click here Hostess Miss Mimi 


 On a midafternoon walk 

I turned down this street to see two 
hawks standing on the curb
(I used a fake hawk on the left)
One flew up into a tree.  The
 other  stood on the curb
 trying to decide if he wanted me for a snack.  
Then off he went to join his buddy
The entire event was less about 30 seconds
I hardly had time to get my phone out.

They are both in this tree inside the white circle

Poetry Thursday 
We are using the alphabet letters as poetry inspiration

Today's post is brought to you by the letter


Tis the time of year when we hear
ho ho hos from far and near.
The child in all of us is filled
with glee, and hope that St. Nicholas and Rudolf
have a clear landings on roofs, or hay bales in fields.
Just ten days and counting oh me oh my
Yes it is ALMOST here so girls, boys,
dads, moms and of course pups and kits
Whatever you do be good or your stockings
will be filled with coal and twigs and possibly figs. (Blah)

Thankful Thursday and Poetry #146/Ode to Chair by Rocky and Kat

 Thankful Thursday hosted by 


Dearest Auntie HiC
Well, as it turns, you can “love something too much”!
This was our favorite chair; ginormous, luxurious, & comfy.

We couldn’t leave well enough alone, & the chair became our prefurrred scratching site. Mom is embarrassed for you to see these photos. 🙀

We are thankful for a Mom and Dad who love us unconditionally

For the past year, the chair has been covered with a bedspread because it had become a health hazard, with all the loose fabric & staples. 

Mom finally declared it officially “trashed”, & the chair was disassembled, taken out to the porch, & will be deposited in the dump tomorrow. 😿

Mom saved the seat cushion, & ordered a new scratching box for us, but we will never forget our chair. 

BYE BYE Old Friend

Love from your adoring Cats
Kat and Rocky

off to the dump

Hi Santa and Mrs Paws

Should you hear
we played havoc with a chair.
Please remember 364 days a year
we are 200% kind, loving 
and full of sugar and spice and
Love Kat and Rocky

Cranberry Orange bread with sugar sprinkled on top.  They sale it in 1/2 loaves.

I will neither confirm nor deny we might have bought more than one.

I'll be MIA from about 10 am til 3:30 pm  today.

Dear SeeSEALya (that is Dachshund speak for Cecilia)

Last Thursday, as you might remember,
 Mom and I took a grand adventure.  It was time for Joy the Jeep's annual check up
JOY passed her inspection.  She got her tires rotated and her oil & filter changed all her fluids are filled up and she got greased.

As you can see, I ERNIE had a great time.   🐾🐾.   Mom only took 2 pics of me with my  MULTIPLE Adoring Fans.    I made them all feel 💙SPECIAL giving them my undivided attention.
In case the above is too small I said, 
Kind sirs, please finish with Joy in a timely manner...we are going to the magic window at BOOGER King 👑 for Chicken Fries

I highly recommends them as a special treat

Respectfully submitted,
 Ernie the Retired Attorney

PS please tell all my friends
