Aww,,,,,,Monday with a SPARKLING Reminder of In Purrsuit of Flavours

We’re in October already.  The months seem to be zipping by.  Summer was awash here…..water everywhere for days.  Now the leaves have started turning colour,  Dusk is at 7pm so we aren’t allowed outside after dinner.  *sigh*                                                         

C’mon Tyebe quit being mellow yellow…..it doesn’t suit you.  It does make one think though and I feel a Spark of positive thought coming  on.  You know, the one that Anne of McGuffy’s Reader started.  We’ll start the week with a positive idea we can embrace through the week

I like this one Shoko and I can relate very well.   Ya, like when some furry bites your butt cause you’re sitting in the empty box she wants.                                                                      

She can respect the other furry by leaving the furry alone to do her thing.  

At Comedy Plus it’s Aww….Monday Claw your way to the mouse and click on over to see what’s happening at Sandee’s place.                                                       

SHOKO…. BLACK
TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE

Aren’t we cute playing together?                                                                   

Awww no Tyebe…..think about it before you leap on my head.  Don’t do it……!!

Wednesday is October’s edition of In Purrsuit of Flavours.  We and co sponsor Phenny and Nelly of Easy Blog have settled on a Halloween theme.  Anything edible is welcomed.                                                           

Tyebe and I settled on Witches Fingers.  These will be a challenge cause the witches just won’t sit still while we chop their fingers off Give us some time  to grab the gory ingredients. I hear   some strange sounds, Tyebe.  It could be the ingredients coming back to life again, Shoks.

Bwaaaa….

 

 

 

Fill er In Feline Friday

It’s Friday…..fish day. I want salmon for supper. Did you eat the salmon Shoko…..I can smell it on your breath. Of course I didn’t eat the salmon, I found mom’s special perfume and I guess it smells like salmon.   *wink* *wink* Oh, that explains it. Thanks Shoko. What’s wrong with your eye?
Geez, she’s so gullible. Now, I feel guilty but I’ll get over it….mol

Friday is the day for Feline Friday at Comedy Central blog. Feline Friday shows the most pictures I’ve ever seen of us 4 legged sleek and magnificent animals.


Pad on over by clicking on the blog name.  Clcking on the badge will only exercise your finger.

Friendly Fill-Ins give us 4 sentences that we can fill in.  Ellen of 15 and Meowing came up with the first 2 sentences and Lorianne of Four Legged Furballs came up with the last 2 sentences.

Shoko and I will take turns copping a fill in.

SHOKO…..BLACK
TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE
MOM…….MAROON

1. You will never find….A TOWEL WITHOUT SNAGS IN IT….. in my home.  We live in our home…..and it looks it. mol  Mom won’t let us show our snagged towels so here’s me looking like I would never do something so callous.                                                 

2. Once a year, I….DON’T SCREAM AND YELL WHEN GETTING MY MANICURE..Hey, I’m not going to show a picture of me being anything but dignified….mol…..

                                                    

3. My TEMPER…. has gotten me in trouble.  You don’t see anything.  Walk away.

Mom says she’s taking the last sentence.

                                                             

4. The last time I …..WAS AT A FRIEND’S HOUSE…. was when…..THE WORLD’s POPULATION DIDN’T WEAR MASKS.  Anticipation will make the meeting so much more exciting.

                                                                                     

In Purrsuit of Flavors is headed this way

Let’s do something for October that is completely different. Outrageous even.  What do ya say Shoko? You mean something that gets peeps thinking of an event in October. Ya…..what exciting day happens in October Us Canadians have Thanksgiving.  Yet, Thanksgiving is not  thought provoking and outrageous, Tyebe.  Well, it shouldn’t be if you want a happy Thanksgiving.   Phenny, you and Nelly got any ideas from Easy Blog.  You like Tyebe’s idea, Nellie?  Well, you know Halloween is at the end of the month.  We could use Halloween as the theme.  I like this idea Shoks.                                                 

If, your dish involves anything to do with Halloween we welcome it. Who cares if its dessert or an appetizer?  Anything goes!  A spooky drink even.                                                                 

October’s In Purrsuit of Flavours is on Wednesday, October the 7th.  We are planning our meal.  Maybe mom has an idea Tyebe.  Could be she has a recipe tucked away…..a spell even! mol

We will send out a reminder on Monday and tell you what we decided to make if we’ve settled on something by then.                                                 

Awwww…Monday’s Sparks

Today is the first work day of the week.   Yep, I work my paws to the beans trying to provide a safe backyard for my family.   These here vermin are quick and run like  a bat outta hell…..I’ve watched a bat fly outta hell……..they are quick as a wrinkle.  You mean wink, Tyebe.  No, I mean wrinkle.  You have seen mom with not much sleepYa.  Well, those wrinkles pop up like nip in the spring.                                                               

As I was saying today is Monday and this is time for a SPARK like Anne of McGuffy’s Reader started many moons ago. The idea was to start the week with a positive thought to help us over the hurdles that tend  to destroy our good times.                                                                               

That sounds pretty vague to me Shoko.   Ya right, you think  I can be positive in a crappy situation. Tell me how?  OK, let’s take the example of the masks peeps must wear now when going out amongst others and they can’t keep 6 feet of distance.  Peeps complain the masks are hot, sweaty, cloud up their glasses and they have trouble breathingThat’s all true Shoko.  Yep, they are uncomfortable but and this is one big BUTT…..mol….you said butt……hahaha….  Pull yourself together Tyebe.  You’re acting like a kitten.  You’re funny Shoko!!  Now let’s look at the message peeps are sending out to others when they DO wear a mask.  They are saying,  “I care if you get sick and so in case I carry the virus…..you are protected from it.”  Two sides of the same situation.  One complains and implies negative aspects where the other looks at the positive thoughts of doing the same action.                                                                              We are also joining Comedy Plus blog for Aww…..Mondays. Pop on over and see what’s happening at Sandee’s joint.                                                                Simply click on the Aww Monday’s name and be blown over to their part of the world.  Don’t bother clicking on the badge as it won’t take you anywhere.

SHOKO…..BLACK
TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE

This morning a visitor stopped  on our vent for a rest.                                                      

 

This is a Northern Flicker Woodpecker.  This is as close as I could get or he would let me get.. We have an abundance of these woodpeckers up in north central BC.  There is no sound as sharp as a woodpecker pecking on a vent of tin. mol  Gets  our attention very quickly.  Sorry, the picture is not good but the dang boid would not pose for me.                                                                

This is a picture of a Northern Flicker Woodpecker.  A particularly colourful and charming fellow as long as he’s not tapping out his favourite tune at 4am.

 

Thankful Thursday for Two Meezers

 

C’mon Tyebe, it’s getting windy as Jack Frost with gas.  Even mom is packing it in for the day out here.

There are so many new smells Shoko.  Well, I’m going home.  You can come if you want.

It’s kinda yucky out here today…..This mud would make great facial packs for the ladies in the Senior Den at Cat Scouts.  It would Shoko.  Who will dig it up for us?  We’ll think of someone.

Today is another Thankful Thursday at Brian’s Home.   Click on the name and be swept over to his joint to see more of yours friends and what they are thankful for these days.                                                                 

We are thankful for everything we have but especially being able to walk with mom in the Lane.  I was lost without mom as my walking buddy.   Now, she can almost keep up with me.

There you are….

I don’t think I’m ready to go in. Let me chase this vole….see ya later.

September Sunday Selfie with Shoko

The days are getting colder, Shoko, and shorter.  No more chewin’ the nip with friends after dinner.  After dinner we have to stay inside cause night falls like a curtain now.  I just get out the door and dad’s hassling me to get back inside.                                                               

The smells here….holy nip from the north, it’s going to rain buckets Shoko.  The grass smells like rain.

You’re right, Tyebe….it’s going to be a wet night.  Let me pose for my selfie and then we’ll head home.

              This is the deck the neighbour’s are getting fixed up.  It shows the blue of my eyes so well.

It’s time I rambled on with my Meezerizm.  There are so many wise sayings but today this one is aimed at Tyebe.  I must have a cool refreshing drink first.                                                           

 

“If the early bird gets the worm and the early cat gets the bird…..who gets the feathers?”

Paris Part 2

This is the continuation of Xe’s story while in gay Paree. We are also joining in Aww Monday at Comedy Central. Leap over and see your buddy’s blogs.                                               

Lucy: So Xena, it seems that your story character Xe has a new friend. What are they going to do? You can’t just leave the story there.

Xena: They’re going to have grand adventures, and another friend is joining them.

PARIS REUNION

When last we met, Xe had just met a lovely French poodle named Gigi. They quickly became fast friends. Gigi offered to show Xe more sites in her home town, so Xe extended her stay at the Air B&B for an extra night. The next morning over café au lait, the little schnauzer regaled her hosts with stories of both her day in Paris as well as her adventures with her BCFF (Best Cat Friend Forever), Tye. Xe and Gigi had just returned to the Air B&B to prepare for anther fun day together when Xe got a text.

“It’s Tye!” Xe exclaimed. “She’s’ on her carpet, hovering over Sacré-Cœur. Let’s go!”

Gigi already knew who Tye was from their long talks the evening before. The pair ran as fast as they could to the stairs to the summit and on up to the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city. They only stopped once to catch their breath before reaching the basilica.                                                                               

“There she is! Here I am, Tye! Down here!” Xe hopped up and down and waved frantically with excitement.

Making a smooth four-point landing, Tye had barely hopped off her carpet when she felt Xe’s arms around here with a big schnauzer hug. They grabbed paws and danced in a hoppy circle with excitement. Tye, in her fancy French beret, suddenly stopped as she saw another dog approach.

                                                                       

Gigi, who had been holding back, shyly approached the happy pair.

“This is my new friend, Gigi,” explained Xe when she finally stopped hopping. I just know you two will become good friends too. She has offered to be my – and now our – tour guide in Paris.”

“Meow, meow, meow! A friend of Xe’s is a friend of mine,” smiled Tye.

“Je suis heureux de vous rencontrer,” responded Gigi.

Tye turned to Xe, and whispered, “Uh, did she just swear at me?”

Gigi, who had very good hearing, said, “No, no, mon amie, that was ma langue français. I will speak your language, English, if you like.”

Having come to that agreement, Gigi offered – in English – to take them to the famous horse racetack, the Hippodrome de Longchamp Moulin. She explained that it is a lesser-know attraction where the locals enjoy losing their money. After paying their 2€ each to enter, they found the best seats, right in front of the track.                                                                         

Xe, very confident in her running abilities, stated, “You see those horses? They could run faster if they didn’t have men on their backs. I bet I could even beat them in a race right now.”
“Ah, but you could not beat me.” The little poodle said this with such confidence that Xe couldn’t help but challenge her to a race.
As soon as the horses began leaving the track the three friends ran out onto the racecourse to settle who was fastest. Tye decided to let the race be between Xexe and Gigi, taking on the role of “starter.”                                                             

“Xe! Stop! You’re running the wrong way!” Tye called out as Tye tried to get her turned around.
“Wee!” exclaimed Gigi. “C’est fantastique! Je vole, je cours si vite!” (I’m flying, I run so fast!)

(A little later) “Wow, quelle fun?” Gigi exclaimed. “I have never before been in a race and I have never before been tossed out of a venue. Vous deux savez comment le vivre.” (You two know how to live it up.)

“I thought you said you would speak English so I could understand you,” complained Tye.
“Je suis désolé, er, I mean, I am sorry,” answered Gigi. “My English is actually very good. I just forget, since I was helping Xéxé practice her French. Now, let’s keep exploring.”

“Here is the Musée Picasso. It is a ‘must see.’” This time, instead of paying the admittance fee, the trio slipped in the dock door as the museum was receiving a delivery– something Gigi would never have done by herself.

“How strange all these paintings and statues look,” mused Xe. “That Picasso dude must have had a really warped mind to come up with all of this. Hey, Gigi, we never got to finish our race. Wanna’ try to catch me?” Xe started running with Gigi close behind. Several statues wobbled, almost tipping over. They stopped and listened at the sound of approaching footsteps.                                                                   

Tye, oblivious to imminent company, was still thinking about what to do with the big-nosed man in front of her. “Hmm, this doesn’t make a very good scratching post. Maybe I’ll leap onto his head and take a bite out of that huge schnozzle.”

“Hey! You three, what are you doing in there?” a guard asked as he approached. Gigi quickly translated the guard’s French.
“Nothing,” they all said in unison, with wide eyes and ready to flee.
“Sortez!” He gave them all a stern look while Gigi told Tye and Xe that they were being thrown out of the museum.
The friends ran for the nearest exit, trying not to do any damage on their way. They got outside and stopped at the bottom of the stairs, woofing and meowing in laughter.
“That is two times – deux fois – we have been thrown out of somewhere! How fun!” laughed Gigi. “Let us find our next adventure.”

As they travelled through Paris, they came to the pool of water in front of the Louvre. Xe quickly got out her ball and jumped in to cool down.                                                                   

“Wee! Wait for me!” yelled Gigi. “I have always wanted to do this, but never before had the nerve.” The little French and German-American dogs played ball in the water until – once again – they got thrown out. Tye, not too fond of swimming, watched from the side, and clapped her paws and laughed as they they climbed out of the water. “Here, we will cool you off too,” woofed Gigi as she and Xe shook the water from their hair. “It is getting late,” said Gigi, “and I must go home before Maman wonders what has happened to me. She worries too much.”
“Come on, Tye, we can stay at my Air B&B tonight,” said Xe. “You will like our hosts, and I am sure they will let me stay another night. I have a nice room and big bed we can share. Help me remember to text Mommy to let her know I am OK. She worries about me, too, even though I am a big girl now.”

“Oh, that reminds me,” meowed Tye, “I promised to text Sho when I found you in Paris, and, with all the excitement, I forgot! I’d better do that too.”

And so, another fun day in Paris ended, with plans to meet up the next day.

The Running of the Squirrels

Hey Shoks…nice day.  The Lane’s getting dusty….the best baths in the world are right here in the Lane with warm and soft dustYou could travel the world or at least this area and not find a finer bath, Tyebe.                                        

We’re just dang lucky to be so close to a fine dusting of dirt.

Look at that guy go! What guy? Be more specific, Tyebe. The squirrel that lives in the evergreen behind us.

He does have a purpose.  There must be some yummy squirrel treats he can smell.

 

Yep,his buddy got the goody.

These guys are in great shape.

We are joining The Cat On My Head for Sunday Selfies.  Pop over and admire your friends posing for their selfies.
