Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! I can see why Joanie likes this blankie so much, good thing Mom got her a backup one.

Brody has a comfy spot too. He says there is plenty of room for you Leia.

Sammy is going to a party at Cat Scouts today. He is supposed to wear a hat so he chose this one. I wonder if he is going Wabbit Hunting too?

Happy Easter!

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

And the A-Z Blogging Challenge starts today. Our first creation is a crocheted avocado, well, it is half of an avocado.

 

Poor Mrs. Potato Head, Gremmie got her with the potato peeler. *

 

Joanie is very worried about her boyfriend, Simon. He is not feeling well. Please say a prayer for him. You can visit him by clicking here.

We hope all who celebrate have a wonderful Easter.

* April Fool! Gremmie and Mrs. Potato Head are still friends. That was a real potato 🙂

Happy Sweet Sixteen Madi!

Hi everyone!  Today is a special day in the Blogosphere, everyone’s BFF , Madi is turning 16. She asked that we all tell how we learned to drive or about a road trip.

My Dad taught me how to drive. I went to driver’s ed too, but my very patient Dad taught me and let me drive him around with my permit. My first car was a 1976 bright blue AMC Gremlin. It did not have power steering and it had a long hood so I had a lot of fender benders ( luckily no one was ever harmed). I even had shades to match the color of the car. 🙂

And now Joanie wants a turn.

  My brother, Sammy teached me to drive in his car.I am only 12 though so I am not old enough to drive-don’t tell.

I hear the Crotchety Cougars took Madi on a road trip.Click here

Living, Laughing and Barking in Our Backyard is hosting the hop-click here.

We are also joining The Cat on My Head’s Selfie Sunday Blog Hop too.

Happy Birthday Madi!!!!

 

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! I have been letting Joanie and Emmy get too much blog time lately so I thought I would write today.

Look what Grammie bought for us. I love Grammie and not just because she brings goodies.

Grammie and mom went shopping the other day. I won’t say the name of the mart store because some of you don’t like that store. Mom got the great one some Minnie Mouse pajamas for $1 and she got a onesie for the great one’s baby sister ( arriving in June). It was only 25 cents !
Mom was so happy with it until Grammie saw it and said, ” my aunt is SINGLE and fun? ” Mom somehow missed the single part- oops! Oh well, they do have a single aunt too 🙂

Before we get started, we want to offer our condolences to Brian and his family on the loss of his sister, Kit. She was a proud Crotchety Cougar and will be missed by all.

Joanie was cuddling on the bed with her Gremmie so look what I got back.

Mom has a question for everyone. She is going to participate in the A-Z Blogging Challenge again. Last year, she crocheted something new everyday to go with the letters and then had a giveaway at the end of the month with 2 winners that got all the cat toys and hats. She wants to do that again this year with all different items, but can’t think of ideas for the following letters , I will put in parentheses what she made last year: N(nip tea bag), Q ( Queen’s crown), U ( Uncle Sam’s hat) and W(whale). Any ideas are greatly appreciated and please remember that mom is not that great at crochet so she can’t make unicorns or anything like that.

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfies Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

Mom promised me my Gremmie won’t ever turn into the bad kind so I took the plastic off of him. I got him a skateboard to play with, but he can’t wear a helmet ( hims ears are too big). Does anyone know where to get a helmet for a gremlin?

Prancie keeps stealing my tent.

  I do not! It belongs to both of us. Gremmie is all yours though.
