Living My Dream Thanks to Photoshop

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop today. This week I thought I would share a photo that my friend photoshopped for me several years ago. You all know how I adore Nicolas Cage and being that today is his birthday, I thought I would use this.

First off, the original taken on Christmas Eve 2009 of my hubby and I

and with a little photoshop magic

And before I end this, Joanie wants to show you all one of the m’s she got for Christmas to wear to The Tabby Cat Club. She is a calico, but has some little stripes on her leg so they accepted her in. She felt bad that she didn’t have the tabby M though so she asked Santa for one.

Ode to Nicolas Cage

dscf2476 Hi everyone! I am having a bad week. You know how Mom took Noel to the vet, but I hid my card so I wouldn’t have to go? Turns out the rotten sneaky veterinarian sends email reminders too. I had to go with them and they stole some of my blood. I have lost a pound in 6 months, I am a svelte 7.15 pounds. My thyroid is hyper so I need to take medicine for it like Millie and Polar Bear- good luck getting me to do that.

Grammie felt bad for me so she bought me my very own bag small bag of party mix that I don’t have to share. I love my Grammie so very much.

Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter N so I thought I would write a poem about Mom’s favorite actor.

Mom’s favorite actor is Nicolas Cage
She has liked him since she was 17 years of age.
All his movies she has seen
they lift her up like caffeine
Nic has been in a lot of flops
he has even played a few cops.
To meet him is the only thing on her bucket list
she just wants a photo. not a tryst.

POETRYSAMBADGE

And the winner of my piorate giveaway is Laila and Minchie– congratulations! I can’t wait to see you both dressed as pirates.

And for P.S. Annie’s 19-Somethin’ Challenge, the question is: Did you get into MTV? If not, what was your favorite music-based tv program? My Mom watched MTV from the start and she loved Solid Gold too. She used to want to be a Solid Gold dancer- MOL!



Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow, we hope you will all join. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. Something healthy I do daily is ________________________.
2, Something unhealthy I do daily is ____________________________.

4. This Autumn,                                          .


 

Poetry and More

Hi everyone! Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter L and my Mom has written a special poem, but first I want to clear something up. Some of you asked if Brody had a selfie on Monday. He did and I purposely, accidentally omitted him. So for all you fans of the suck up, Brody here is his selfie.

Grammie was here on Wednesday, I love her so very much. And she brought me us another pound of Party Mix.

Here is Mom’s poem about Lucy:

Lucy
You loved to hiss
the litter box you’d often miss.
You were always on my lap
or on the bed we’d take a nap.
You always had lots of splainin to do,
you would have moved the football on Charlie Brown too.
My life is no longer the same,
I miss calling your name.
We had to say goodbye last Fall,
Lucy, I miss you most of all.

Over the Rainbow Bridge, Lucy



I can’t believe it has been almost a year since Lucy went to The Rainbow Bridge.

Mom is joining a new challenge for September hosted by P.S.Annie and McClendon Villa

It is called 19-Somethin’ . The first question is :What movie could you, or did you see over and over again when you were a teenager? My Mom reminded me that when I was 13, I couldn’t stop watching Annie. When I was older, Dirty Dancing was watched countless times. And of course, Peggy Sue Got Married, my all time favorite movie and when I first fell in love with Nicolas Cage.


Mom also wants me to give you the fill-ins for tomorrow, she came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. My favorite way to exercise is ____________________________.
2. Something I learned last week was ____________________________________.

Happy Phoebe

Hi everyone! I guess my poem worked, I saw Grammie Friday and Saturday! I love her so very, very much. Plus she is going to watch us when Mom and Dad go to see Star Trek on Monday. DSCF2112 (2)

My Purrince sent me a letter and lots of photos. He is such a sweet and handsome boy.

DSCF2119 (2) This one is my favorite!

I am so happy that I decided to have a giveaway! It has been so hot that I thought some ice cream might cool you down.

DSCF2113 (2)

The winner will get a catnip mat ( ice cream printed fabric) , a crocheted ice cream cone and a button art card with an ice cream cone on it. I am not going to make it easy though. Mom likes to watch some of her favorite movies during her birthday month of July ( glad that is almost over) so I took some notes. You need to identify the films these quotes are from, the one that gets the most correct will win. If several of you get them all correct then I will have a drawing for the winner. Mom has strange tastes so this is going to be tough. Hint: They are not all Nicolas Cage films. Put your answers in the comments, we will keep the guessing open until Monday 9PM EST, the winner will be announced Tuesday.

  1. ” The blouse man is on the premises”
  2. ” I carried a watermelon”
  3. “Our love fern! You let it die!”
  4. ” You were a shooting star amongst ordinary stars”
  5. “It’s really funny. YOU bought an Edsel. “

ROAR

Hi everyone! Today is ROAR day, but first- its Nic Cage’s birthday!!!! I have heard there are 6 degrees of separation fron Kevin Bacon for everyone on the planet. I wonder how many degrees of separation there are for Nic? Meeting Nic Cage is the only thing on my bucket list other than saving as many cats as possible. I have adored him since 1985’s Peggy Sue Got Married and not liked any other actor since then- despite his lousy choices of movies lately. If anyone out there has any kind of connection, I beg you to please help me. This is the closest I have gotten: meandnicThis is the wax museum in NYC-the restaurant next door had him on display in the window.

For this week’s ROAR, I donated to The Cat Blogosphere. I am grateful for the daily linkies to help find new blogs and spread the word of mine. They only need $150 so if everyone give a little ( I gave $10) , they will have it in no time. Here is the link: http://www.blog.catblogosphere.com/annual-cb-hosting-fund-raiser/ . I am also thankful to the people that keep it running.

Have a great day everyone!
