Veteran’s Day

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful. I am reusing my art from 2015. Lucy was posing with my father’s Air Force photo and his flag.

Here are my thankfuls:

  1. I am thankful to all who served and are currently serving. I have the utmost respect for anyone who is willing to give their life for people they have never met.
  2. For scoring a 21 pound turkey for $1.32. The grocery store in the next town had them for 39cents a pound and they accept the $7 off coupon from their competitor.
  3. Hubby and I got to finally go to his favorite restaurant for a long overdue birthday dinner ( his birthday is in January, but he had a blood clot and then Phoebe was sick, etc.).
  4. One of our friends that lives in the same town as the restaurant met us there for dinner, it was nice to catch up.
  5. Coffee with a different friend on Friday.
  6. Lots of leftover cake from the great one’s birthday party.
  7. Emmy finally sat on my lap and has done it more than once.

8. Going shopping today with my mom, niece and the great one.

9. The great one already loves books, she opened some at her party last week and sat right down to look at them instead of moving on to the next gift.

10. Lots of great books that I am currently reading.

Happy Halloween!

Hi everyone. Before we show our Halloween costumes, I have a Prancie update. She is improving and can walk pretty well, just a little unsteady. The vet did not think she had a stroke. She thinks it is vestibular and possibly from an ear infection. She had an antibiotic shot and has ear drops. Thank you all for the purrs and prayers.

First off, black cats don’t need costumes, they are perfect just as they are. And Polar Bear is impossible to dress so he decided to pose with a ghost.

The other eight went with an ocean theme.

Sammy as Popeye with Olive Oil and Sweet Pea ( actually, it is a sugar snap pea).


Emmy is a penguin

Penny is a crab ( she is mad that she couldn’t do her tips today).

Millie is a pirate

Brody is an octopus

Joanie is the Gorton’s Fisherwoman

Prancie is a mermaid

( photo taken before she got sick)

KaTwo is a shark

Which one do you like best? Have a great day!

Three Hops in One

Hi everyone! We have three hops to join today. Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?, Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays and McGuffy’s Reader Sparks.

First off is Joanie’s weekly review.

Love with a Chance of Drowning by Torre DeRoche. I not drowning for anyone, I am glad my boyfriend, Simon is land lover like me.

Thank you Joanie. I actually loved this book. I am not sure why because I am not a fan of the ocean, I can’t even stand the smell. For some reason though this memoir pulled me right in. A 25 year old Australian girl spending a year in the USA meets a 30 year old man planning to embark on a journey around the world in his used yacht. When the time comes, they are still together and she joins him. It is quite an adventure with some humorous parts and some dangerous ones too.

I actually bought this at The Dollar Tree, the word memoir on the cover got me.Now that I have enjoyed it, I am going to give it away. If you want to be entered in the giveaway just say so in the comments. Books are heavy though so I can only afford to send it to someone in the USA, sorry.

My Spark for the week is: Kindness is free, sprinkle that stuff everywhere.I saw that quote on Pinterest with no author listed. Emmy made a little twist on it.

Sunday Selfies Tocktober Edition Part 1

Hi everyone! Thanks for welcoming me on Thursday. This writing stuff is pretty tiring.

I am studying up this Wicked book for some tips. I need to get tough, Emmy and Sammy seem to want to stage a coup.

I was told it was Tocktober. I always wondered why mom was so obsessed with taking photos of our bottoms during Grammie’s birthday here are four of our tocks for this week: Mine


Emmy and Brody

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and The Pet Blogger Showcase, our friends’ Ellie, Momma and BearCat featured Phoebe again. Thank you.

PS: Penny is starting a new monthly  feature on Tuesday.

And tomorrow our friend Annie at McGuffy’s Reader is starting a new hop to help everyone start their week on a positive note. To join, post a quote or photo of something that will “spark” the positive.



Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Not sure you remember me, I am not on the blog often, but that is about to change. Phoebe chose me as the next leader and one of those duties includes writing. I hope it doesn ‘t cut into my nap time and my torture Daddy time. I love my Daddy the most, he doesn’t even get mad when I knock all the stuff off the table by his chair. I do that about 5 times a day.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful for getting to spend almost 13 years as Phoebe’s sister. We used to play fight to get our folks to give out snacks, but we always were friends.

Now, here is my very first poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter Q.

Phoebe named me the next Queen
because I am the most serene.
She told Emmy to help me out,
she has more clout
always smacking Joanie and Sam with her paw
she has lots of chutzpah.
I am going to be the poet
I hope I don’t blow it.

Phoebe left me her crown. She said we can all wear her clothes except her yellow polka dot bikini and her harness dress, those are to never be worn by anyone again. She also left us her pole dancing money and said we should buy another water fountain with it because water is so important for our kidneys.We all miss her very, very much.

Phoebe’s Purrince is not doing well, he has some health problems and is not eating so please purr and pray for him.To visit him, click here.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday. Mom came u with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. October is the perfect time to ____________________________.

2. Halloween _________________________.

3. Every October, I                               .

4. My experience with the supernatural world is                                   .
Thank you for reading this!

How I Spent My Summer Vacation Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Today Blogville is having a How I Spent My Summer Vacation Blog Hop. A few of my kitties wanted to participate so here they are:

  I became an adventure cat. I go on 2 walks with my folks every day ( except when it rains). And my Grammie visited me a lot- I love her so very much.

I went to Cat Scouts Summer Camp. I made this hat, climbed the Half Dome and had lots of fun with my Scout friends.

I settled into my forever home.

To see what all our friends did this summer, click here.
