Feline Friday!!! October 30, 2020


Our sweet Lucy.
Best cat ever!!!

Here are my Friendly Fill-Ins. Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two and her co-host, Lorianne of                    Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. I keep making cookies, but somehow I always forget that I am supposed to only eat one a day.
2. I don’t need to travel, but I really want to take an airplane ride to Paris!
3. I would want "Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death" to be etched onto my tombstone.
4. If I heard something go bump in the night, I would be wide awake and would nudge my sweetie and make sure he heard it too.
PS Tomorrow on Halloween we will see a full moon !

Ancient Graffiti!
Had to share this amazing discovery!

A new discovery on the side of the Mirador Natural Hill in Peru reveals that common feline activities—namely sprawling out in the most comfortable position—have remained relatively stable throughout the last 2,000 years. Archaeologists unearthed a 120-foot-wide etching of a cat at the Nazca Lines site in Peru that dates back to the Late Paracas period between 200-100 BC.

Have a great week!

Feline Friday October 16, 2020

Last month we visited our good friends
down near Mt Shasta CA.  
Here is "Sister" above and her brother
"Mister" below! They just showed up
a few years ago as little kittens
and obviously knew a good place to be! 

And even tho' he  is not a feline we could
not leave out "Toby" a darling Cairn Terrier!
He lives not too far from Mister and Sister
with more good friends!!

Have a lovely Feline Friday!
Thanks Sandee!

Thankful Thursday! October 15, 2020

Even though I have probably posted 
this photo of Lucy before- 
I have to say she is the best kitty we have ever had  
She is unique and ever so much a lovely cat.
I am so thankful that she just showed up 
on our doorstep a bit over 10 years ago.
Cherish every moment with your family.
Thanks Brian for Thankful Thursday!

Wordless Wednesday October 14, 2020

Thanks to Colossal I am sharing this fun video!

Who Dat

 The swaggering pigeon in Emmit Fenn’s new music video might upend the notion that peacocks are the proudest avians. Animated and directed by Patrick Jean, “Who Dat” opens on a quiet street corner before zooming in on the lone bird. As the bass drops, the pigeon begins a subtle strut down the street while it grooves to the beat. Soon, the bird reveals in its dancing skills after a shake of its tail feather. To see more of the Los Angeles-based director’s humorous animations, head to Vimeo.

Have a super duper Wordless Wednesday!

Awww Monday! October 12, 2020

Last weekend we spent a few days wine tasting
down in Dundee, Oregon. After tasting at 
a few winerys we had a delightful time
talking with this dogs family while waiting
for a table to be available at our favorite
Italian restaurant Nicks in McMinnville. 
It is always fun to meet up with friendly folks -
especially these days when we are so isolated.

Awww Monday! October 5, 2020

Fall has to be my favorite season!
I know Spring is beautiful with all
the flowers blooming, but there is
something special about all the
leaves changing color and drifting 
down to join all their buddies.
This past weekend we drove south to
the Red Hills wine country near
Dundee Oregon. First we stopped at

Potters Winery a small family run winery.
Very tasty wines and a great start to our little vacation.

I'll post more photos later this week.
Have a lovely week!
