Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! I am a day late for Sabi Saturday, but here is my entry. (Sabi Saturday is a hop where you show something old, repurposed or upcycled. I have shown this in the past, but not for Sabi Saturday so here it is again.

This was my mom’s book as a child. I guess it is still technically hers, but I am the keeper of it. Does anyone know what Dolly Madison’s surprise was?

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

We have lots of participants today-

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday What are YOU Reading?

Prancie is posing with my Mother’s Day gift.

I have been reading Dani Shapiro’s memoirs. She has written 5 memoirs highlighting different aspects of her life. She has also written several novels. I started with Devotion:A Memoir and was immediately pulled into her life. After that I read her latest memoir , Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity and Love. She writes about accidentally discovering a family secret.

I have also read Slow Motion, a memoir of her life as a young adult and how a tragic accident affected her. And I just finished Hourglass: Time, Memory, Marriage. I only have one memoir left to read. She teaches memoir workshops so someday I hope to attend one.

 

 

Thankful Thursday

HI everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Prancie is thankful for the enormous package of prizes that arrived last week. As you know, she won the Easter Bonnet contest at One Spoiled Cat.

She won this great hat-

And all this-

She loves her unicorn. We have to hide it when The Great One is here because she will want it.

Look at all these treats! And she is not planning to share.

She did give this cute pen to her Dad though. Thank you to Teddy and his mom for all these goodies. And thanks to all who voted for Prancie in the contest.

Prancie is so happy that she agreed to write today’s poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

I already told you I don’t like being wet
if that is what you want, get a dog for a pet.
Have fun in your white river raft ,
I didn’t realize you were so daft.
I will stay here and guard the house,
try to remember to bring me a mouse.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
1. ______________ was a very good year.
 
2. There is nothing quite like _______________.
3. If I had a talk show, I would want to interview _________.
4. There is nothing I wouldn’t do for _________.
One more thing- today is Sammy’s big day for his dental and an x-ray on his nose as well as a biopsy. All purrs and prayers will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Who do you think looked best?

I am a day late for Sabi Saturday, but here is my entry. (Sabi Saturday is a hop where you show something old, repurposed or upcycled. I wish more bloggers would join this fun hop.)

I was close to my Great Aunt. When she passed away in 1988, she left me her photo collection and this war ration book from WWII was in there too.

Penny is Mad

Hi everyone! Today is the last day of The A-Z Challenge. This month sure went by quickly. Z is for zyrtec, I highly recommend it for kitty allergies. Always ask your vet first though. Prancie has had allergies for years and was always puling off her tummy fir and her leg fur. Special diets helped a little, but it was tough to keep her from stealing another cat’s food. She had been on prednisone different times too, but I find the zyrtec safer for long term use. She gets 1/4 tablet ( original 5 mg, not extra strength or D) and now she has her furs back. Please check with your vet before starting this though.

Sorry everyone, but I am mad at my mom so no tips today. She took me to the vet yesterday. The tech put a thermometer where the sun don’t shine and they took my blood and I got a rabies vaccine!

Quit your complaining! At least you knew you would come home. I was scared! And the tech did the same thing to me with the thermometer. And  I got a rabies vaccine and a distemper shot.

They took my blood too. And the worst part was I am the biggest so I had to use the pink PTU. How humiliating.

I guess I had the easy part- hauling 3 cats around and paying the $500 bill.

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! I am a day late for Sabi Saturday, but here is my entry. (Sabi Saturday is a hop where you show something old, repurposed or upcycled. I wish more bloggers would join this fun hop.)

This bunk bed was mine as a child and now The Great One plays with it when she visits. My mom made the crocheted blankets back in the1970’s to go with it.

I forgot to announce the winner of Penny’s contest yesterday. There were 394 pennies in the sugar bowl . Four-Legged Furballs‘ mom guessed the closest at 339. Thank you to all who played along.

Now for our selfies.
