Saturday Symmetry

Wednesday, January 10th was a beautiful day but the wind, they call Mariah,  was gusting at about 40 mph.  In fact, so gusty we could see it blowing the clouds at mach wind speed. 
We  decided it was a good day to walk around the inside of the NC Museum of Art and have lunch.   FYI when the employees were putting up the umbrellas we wondered WHY with the Wind.  Within 5 min all the umbrellas were on the ground.

 The cafe at the museum has changed used to be (BEFORE COVID) quite nice and there was table service.  Now everything all sandwiches and salads are in a cooler (serve yourself). Soup, and 2 hot sandwiches are made to order.
Both of use enjoyed what we ordered but JUMPIN' CATFISH the cost was as high as the clouds.  Bottle water $3.00 each our lunch total with tip was $34.00
live and learn. 

My sandwich

My husband ordered a smash burger and fries.  
We both enjoyed the fries.

Oh and just FYI I took lots of photos I'll share over the next week or so

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #148

 Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy 

Here is the photo challenge

I could not get much to rhyme with prairie dog love so my creative license let me call it Ground Hog Love.
When I first saw this photo, I thought of the song, Musk Rat Love, performed by 
Captain and Tennille
written by Willis Alan Ramsey original words are in RED

May I present Ground Hog Love
Revised by Cecilia January 11, 2024

Ground Hog Ginger, Ground hog Gill
Doing the ground hog Two Step
Out on the prairie
Ginger's whiskers tickle Gill as he whispers.
Gill holds tight to Ginger who is not SKINNY

Muskrat Susie, Muskrat Sam
Do the jitterbugOut in the muskrat landAnd they shimmySam is so skinny

Gill gives Ginger a whirl 
while singin' his love
Ginger is sure she is floating
on cloud 9 in heavens above.
This is looks like Ground Hog Love

And they whirl and they twirl and they tangoSingin' and jinglin' a jangoFloatin' like the heavens aboveLooks like muskrat love

Nibblin' on Ginger's ear
Gill says to her
Honey would you be my Prairie Princess
for all of your years?
Ginger squeals yes dear 
as she blows kisses into his ear.

Nibblin' on bacon, chewin' on cheese
Sam says to Susie
Honey, would you please be my Mrs?
Suzie she says yes, with her kisses 
Now Gill is happy, he wiggles
Ginger giggles 
as nose to nose they stand
for all of their years
Now, he's ticklin' her fancyRubbin' her tiesMuzzle to muzzle nowAnything goesAs they wiggleSue starts to giggle

Awww Monday with Frisco and Sparks


 Thank you to our   

Host Comedy Plus     

As I mentioned, HERE, last week, Mia is very maternal to Frisco.  They groom each other

Frisco is a wise Man Cat.  He gets along purrfectly with his sisters. 
Frisco was the first kitty to be adopted from Island Rescue.  He was about 6 months old.  He was over the moon happy when his older sister Mia came to live with them.  When it saw her for the first time, it was like they were old friends.
It was love at first sight for both of them there was no need to keep them separate.
Mia immediately started treating him like he was her kitty.
Island Rescue does a wonderful job socializing all their cat and kittens before the are adopted.  He is such a gentle Ginger-man.  He follows Mia's lead he is just happy to be with her.  Mia was a bit over 2 years old when she was adopted.
She was past the playful stage.  
Next Monday I will post about Harper.   She has been an amazing addition to the family.   Most of all she brings out Frisco's kitten side and he loves it.
They chase, play hide and seek. 

Quote on Hallmark shopping bag

Big thank you to everyone for your very kind and most appreciated birthday wishes yesterday.  It was a lovely day.  I took a 1.1 mile walk in the sun (after an all day rain on Saturday).
