Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

Phoebe’s favorite day of the year was Cinco de Mayo. Her Dad always gave her $5 for pole dancing and for the past few years, Grammie did too. Last year I knew in my heart it would be her last Cinco de Mayo, but I didn’t want to believe it. I used Lunapic to add a frame to her photo from last year.

Here are links to her past Cinco de Mayo celebrations:

This week’s theme for Mewsic Moves Me is Songs with colors in the title. Here are my choices. In memory of my Phoebe and her traveling bikini that traveled the US and Canada in 2015-

2. Purple Rain ( Prince)

I have always been a fan of Prince, my Angel Phoebe posed with my purple record in April 2016 after his passing.

3. Blue (LeAnn Rimes)- Haven’t heard much about her lately, but her voice is incredible.

I do have a great book to tell you about , but I thought this post was long enough so I will have that on Wednesday.

After a little rest
a lifeboat may come from the west.

Blog 4 Peace

Hi everyone! We are participating in the Blog4Peace again this year. Instead of making a new globe, I have decided to use last year’s with Phoebe and Brody. Now if I could only get Sammy and Brody to be able to sit that close.

 

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful.

Here are my ten thankfuls:

  1. Baseball season is over- I have nothing against the sport except that it is on almost EVERY day. And those men spit way too much.
  2. The Orville already got renewed for season 2. If you haven’t seen it yet, it is on Fox Thursday night, sort of like the original Star Trek.
  3. I found a great website with all kinds of free printables to help organize everything- from cleaning schedules, party planning, gift shopping, etc. It is called Iheartorganizing.
  4. Emmy sat near me and let me pet her.
  5. I got to see the great one in her Halloween costume, she had quite a few relatives that came to see her. I am glad she is so loved, if all kids were that loved, we would have a world of peace.
  6. I am going to the great one’s 2nd birthday party today- the theme is Teletubbies 🙂
  7. My toe is officially fine and I don’t have to go back to the podiatrist. I had a procedure done a month ago that makes that side of the nail never grow back- and it worked.
  8. Prancie continues to do well ( this should be #1, but I am too lazy to switch it). Thank you all for the purrs and prayers.
  9. I have a new Nic Cage movie to watch tonight.
  10. Chewy sent us a Halloween gift.. I am a ChewyInfluencer and it is so nice to be appreciated. I worked for the local school system for 13 years and was never shown appreciation.

Look at all these cool spiders!

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We have a busy post today. First off , we are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.My first thankful is the art-

  1. I won a necklace from Memorial Glass Pendants on Cat Chat with Caren and Cody quite a while ago. It is made with ashes of a beloved pet and I had planned to send a little of each of my angels, but Phoebe was so sick that I couldn’t bring myself to deal with it. After Phoebe passed away, I was too sad.Well, last week I finally sent some ashes for the necklace. I decided that Phoebe and Snowball were always together so I chose to have the necklace made with their ashes.

My photo doesn’t do the necklace justice. It is so beautiful and looks like stars in the sky.

2. I am thankful that the owner let me know when the ashes arrived and sent back the ones she didn’t use as well.

3. Hubby and I celebrated our 25th anniversary this week ( I guess that should be #1) .

4. A pizza party with the great one and my mom.

5. Made a cheesecloth ghost with the great one, she is finally at a good age to do some arts and crafts.

6. Mom and I spent the day at the casino on Thursday ( we go every year around her birthday).

7. I only lost $3 at the casino, the most I will part with is $20.

8. Black Cats Tell All came out this week and I am thankful Spooky’s story is part of it.To order click here

9. Thankful some of you plan to watch the movie I was in that Joanie told you about on Monday.

10. Thankful I was able to get Sammy’s vomit off my favorite black cat shirt. It was hanging off the bureau and he stood on the bureau and yacked over the edge.

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.

Queen
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!
