We are joining Feline Friday now hosted by Messymimi.  
Our 9 year Blogoversary is coming up next week so my flashback is the first photo I ever posted in 2014. Angel Lucy all dressed up for Fleet Week in NYC.
Not to be confused with the Lucy that currently lives here.
They do have similar faces though.

    1. Thank you. She was supposed to be a sailor. 🙂 Thank you for answering the fill-ins. I am sorry the seizures give you headaches. You have me excited about your books now- I hope you do publish them. I don’t do vampires. My aunt let me watch Salem’s Lot when I was and I have feared them since. XO

        ***purrss*** BellaDharma

        Hi Ellen~~ Seizures always cause headaches. A headache can last for hours, even days. They are very draining to say the least.
        My 1st book is a HUGE book of poetry. 2nd book is a trilogy of Vampire storeis~~they are not gory or terrifying. I wrote about Humane Vampires. I hear you about “Salem’s Lot”. That show freaked me out too! 😉
        My 3rd book is Native inspired legends; stories & poetry……sadly it is unfinished.
        And I remain unpublished. I am too unwell to do that now.

        1. That does look like a nurse’s cap and another commenter said she had a nurse doll with that outfit. I am sure that is draining, headaches are awful. I hope someday you feel better and can publish. I would read your vampire stories. XO

  3. I hate cigarette smoke too! Happy 9 years of blogging. That is a sweet photo of your Angel Lucy.

  4. We agree completely on the cigarette smoke….so sorry for smokers as it is hard to kick but it’s so, so damaging to the smoker. I’ll bet your mama was a good nurse 10 years ago….

  5. Happy Almost Ninth Blogaversary! Time flies when you’re blogging doesn’t it. Mom says she agrees with your #1. We both love Angel Lucy’s Fleet Week flashback photo……CUTE!

    Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam

  6. Cigarette smoke gives me a headache too! I want to update a book I wrote and can’t seem to find the time to do it. Adorable pics of Angel Lucy and Lucy.

  7. Both Lucy fuzz faces are adorable! Angel Lucy wore it well! I am with you about cigarette smoke, can’t tolerate it. Almost at nine years of blogging. I have enjoyed your blog so much. The Meowing Crew are a delightful bunch!
    My Fill-Ins…
    1. The Covid booster always gives me a headache.
    2. Ten years ago, I was 10 years younger and living in Missouri.
    3. Heat, humidity and hurricane season is the reason I haven’t yet totally embraced Floridadoo.
    4. I prefer peanut butter with my chili, but I also don’t mind crackers and cheese in it.
    Hugs and Happy weekend, Ellen!

    1. Thank you for these great answers. I am sorry the boosters give you a headache. The first shot made me sick, but nothing with the 3 boosters. I like tortilla chips in mine. 🙂 XO

  8. 1. Politicians always gives me a headache.
    2. Ten years ago, I was ten years younger.
    3. Our home remodel is the reason I haven’t yet dusted. There is so much dust.
    4. I prefer Cheetos, but I also don’t mind Butterfinger Ice Cream.

    Thank you for co-hosting the Friendly Fill-Ins.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, Ellen. Scritches to the kitties and a hug to you. ♥

    1. Thank you for these great answers. They give me a headache too. All that dust will be worth it in the end. :)X O

  9. Cute pics of the two Lucy’s! Cigarette smoke chokes me. Tobacco shortened my Mom’s life and directly caused the early deaths of two good friends via cancer. XO

    1. It also shortened my Dad’s life as well and I am sure it contributed to my sister’s death as well. XO

  10. It’s amazing the difference ten years can make, now the niece is married and you have the company of her 3 children.

    I love the photos of both Lucys. Beautiful calicos.

    Thank you for joining Feline Friday!

  11. Your answers are always interesting. So many things can happen and so many changes can occur in ten years! xo
