It’s the last Friday of the month, time for Photo Fails. Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows blog is hosting Photo Fails. She has taken over from SoLT of Cuddl ywumps Cat Chronicles. Old SoLT, as she called herself, left us far too soon. Melissa has the honour of carrying on for our friend. Click on the red blog name or click on the picture and take the shortcut to Melissa’s blog.
Now the pictures we are about to show you have never been seen before by any human (except mom) or animal.
What are Photo Fails? They are pictures mom has taken that didn’t measure up so no one has seen them until now.
Like this one:
Some bright soul decided to use the flash. Granted without the flash it would have been too dark. It’s a fail anyway.
Here’s a picture of me without the tips of my ears.
Cruel, cruel peeps around here.
This picture would’ve been great but Budd turned his head. I’m sleeping on Shoko’s blanket. She normally won’t let anyone on it but she’s not here so what she doesn’t see won’t bother her.
Here’s a dark picture of me. It was taken earlier in the year before all the snow left.
Mom should have used the flash here. You can hardly make out the bird I’m watching on TV.
TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE BUDD…..GLUTTONOUS GREEN
Time for Shoko’s Meezer Proverbs.
“Looking a Meezer directly in her blue eyes is an invitation to play slap and whap.”
Hey, it’s that time. Time for the fill-ins for the week. We thank our co-hosts 15 and Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs. We’ll all take a shot at the sentences. C’mon Budd. The dude will still be in the mirror when you get back. Guess you’re right Tyebe. He doesn’t seem to leave the same spot. Coming right out.
SHOKO…..BLACK TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE BUDD…..SEAWEED GREEN MOM…..MAROON
Here are our sentences for this week:
1. I can’t wait to have…..ALL THE FOOD I WANT….. on Crisp Mouse. ( if not in the USA, substitute your next holiday).
2. I am thankful for…..BUDD AND EVEN SHOKO. I KNOW ONE DAY SHOKO WILL LOVE ME. SHE WOULDN’T LET ANYONE HURT ME NOW SO I KNOW DEEP…..WAY DEEP DOWN SHE LOVES ME.
3. When it comes to pie,…..ANY KIND DOES THE TRICK. ALL PIES ARE DELICIOUS SO I’M NEVER PICKY.
4. A feast is not a feast without….NIP. ONE MUST GET THAT GIDDY FEELING DURING A HOLIDAY
Do these ears remind you of a cat in this house? Spooky likeness.
Budd, tell me about the Lane and life on the road. What do ya wanna know little one? Did you have any friends, Budd? I sure did, lots of friends.Who was your best friend and what was he like? Well, I’d have to say Sal was a steady friend that liked the same food as me. He was a big guy, like me and we’d make the rounds of houses together. Sal could make the most pitiful puss by drooping his whiskers and making wide innocent eyes.hehe What a guy. His one weakness was salmon. He was crazyover salmon and would do almost anything if the result was him getting salmon. One day after a particularly heavy rain I told Sal that there was a salmon swimming in in a deep puddle in the Lane. You know he went through every puddle in the Lane to find that salmon. Later that day he came up to me with a piece ofsalmon in his mouth. “Dood, I found that salmon in the last puddle in the Lane and it was delish. I put aside a huge piece for you but a few hours after I ate my share, I got salmon withdrawal and had to eat your share. I mean dood, I was shaking, seeing little fishies that weren’t there. It was horrible”, said Sal.Was it true, Budd?We’ll never know for sure Tyebe. There are strange things done in the Lane after a full moon and the night before the salmon showed up there was a full moon.
Mol *hic* You’ll never guess what happened today Budd and Shoko. The tooth fairy visited me. She did, really she did no pooping ya.. I told you she was real Tyebe. She left my baby teeth and said in a note that mom may want to keep them. Great, I know mom wants to keep them.
Did you see her? Well, no but she left goodies for me. You sure it wasn’t just mom trying to freak you out? No, not our mom cause these toys were made from the tooth fairy’s home. There is a truly awesome blanket that must have nip in it cause it smells out of this world. You gonna try and tell me mom sews?No, I barely see mom lift a needle. She did mention something about an allergy.
Me’s so happy. I’s don’t know what to do first.
What’re you doin’ Tyebe? You’re going craz…ier!
Do ya need some help white one? Nay, me’s good.
Tyebe, that looks like fun. Can I play too?Sure. Grab a toy. I wanna roll all over that blankie.Well, I don’t know Budd.
It’s also Thankful Thursday at Brian’s Home so shuffle on over and observe all the thankful anipals. Just click on Brian’s Home badge and we’ll take you there.
We are all thankful today for the Tooth Fairy’s gifts to us.I’s must stress that these toys were given to me’s Budd and Shoko. So me gets first dibs.
SHOKO…..BLACK TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE BUDD…..SEASICK GREEN
This is an Artsy Caturday Tyebe and Budd. Me’s never heard of it before Shokos, and I’s been here for almost 4 months. Well, mom’s been slow getting onto Athena’s Artsy Caturday. She sure has been. What is involved Shoko? Do we have ta wear some weird clothes? No Budd, we can pose in our furs or if you prefer naked as the day we were born…mol. Click on the badge and be whiskered away……
Me’s will pose for the artsy photo Shokos. No Tyebe, mom’s kinda ticked with you right now. I’s didn’t do nothin’. Me’s was just havin’ fun. Mom knows that but how many times has she told you to stay off the counter? She didn’t appreciate you rolling the avocado on the floor or knockin’ Budd’s Forti Flora box on the floor and then eating an envelope. Well, I had to taste it and see if it tasted good enough for Budd.
Me’s don’t see the avocado on the floor. Mom had picked it up before you knocked the Forti Flora on the floor. It’s a pretty blurry picture….are you sure this is the only evidence against me? Yep, this blurry picture is the only evidence you white bomber.
Look at the mess you made, Tyebe. mol *hic* Oh ya, maybe mom will think Budd was playing with the toys
With a face like this….I don’t think so, Tyebe.
Here is my picture for the artsy fartsy works. Mom used Lunapic Beauty on the picture.
Me’s, “Walkin’ the walk and talkin’ the talk”…me’s full of myself so Shoko says! All I’s can say is,…Just who am I’s supposed to be full of sis? mol *hic*

Whatcha doin’ in there Tyebe? You’re making a heck of a noise. Can’t get comfy?I’s trying to tidy up in here Budds. There’s blankets shoved Higgly Piggly.
Seems to me you’re the only one that went in the tent. Guess you did it Tyebe.mol *hic* Could be you’re right but then again these blankets needed a good airing.

We are trying a different hop today Tyebe and Budd. It’s called Flower Power. I know Budd it seems silly to start looking at the flowers when the best part of them is over for this year but this looks like a fun hop. This blog hop is brought to us from Arty, Jakey and Rosy from Living,Laughing Barking in Our BackYard
This was your 3rd. night in the house, Budd so how was it?
It was gud Tyebe. I must say I can do well without your leaping all over the bed when I’m trying to get some shut-eye. The leaping on Shoko must stop if you want her to like you.Seriously? Me thought she liked to hiss and sound mean. She just doesn’t know what to do with you, Tyebe. OK, Budd, me’s will try and not leap on her.
Ha!! I don’t believe you Tyebe!
You’ll wait till I’m all relaxed and then leap on me with your claws out! Just because I’m laying peacefully. Me’s sorry Shokos. I thought you liked playing “Leap on the Monster.” No way…. you play the monster and I’ll leap on you….see how you like it. No, it’s ok Shokos.
Here is a picture of mom’s favourite Day Lily. Not bad, eh. We can’t play anywhere near it so we play in the ferns away from the Day Lily.
Have a wonderful Flower Friday….we will.
Me’s sure there’s a bug in that flower. If only me’s could reach that high.
Mom is still canning but today is a break day. So we decided to have mom jump on the computer and do our post.
The smoke is getting less in this area. The forest fires are slowing down. There are around 500 forest fires with the worst being in this area of BC, the northern central interior. The state of emergency has been extended another few weeks. Although the cooler weather has started so it’s just a matter of time and the first killer frost will be here.
Can’t you just smell the smoke while looking at this picture?
About 2 weeks ago a visitor came to our door. He liked our deck and decided to stay.
We all seem to get along. Mom got some deworming meds from the vet for Budd and she’s hoping his appetite gets a little less soon.
Will Budd stay? We don’t know but mom and dad say he is more than welcome to come live with us. He seems to be fixed and is happy playing with Tyebe’s toys and Tyebe. Time will tell if he wishes to stay. He sleeps on the deck at night but comes in and visits for short times during the day.
Tyebe will compete the first 2 sentences and I will complete the last two.
I’s ready Shokos.
1. The best teacher me’s ever had was ….BUDD. HE DIDN’T LIKE ME’S GOING BOOGITY BOOGITY IN HIS FACE SO HE PUSHED ME’S HARD ENOUGH TO KNOCK ME’S PAWS OVER TEAKETTLE INTO OUR BIG WATER BOWL ON THE DECK. I’S HAVE NEVER PLAYED BOOGITY BOOGITY IN HIS FACE AGAIN.
2. The worst teacher I ever had was.….SHOKO. ALL SHE DOES IS HISS AND WRESTLE ME’S. ME’S DON’T KNOW IF SHE’S MAD OR IS JUST PLAYING.
3. I recently learned how to……MEDITATE. I HOLLER MEOOOOOOOOOW AND THE WORLD FADES AWAY. I AM IN MY PRIVATE PLACE WITH THE SUN, BUTTERFLIES AND FLOWERS TO SLEEP UNDER. ABSOLUTELY NO WHITE DEMON.
4. I think everyone should know how to…..BE IN THEIR SPECIAL PLACE WHEN LIFE GETS TO BE TOO MUCH
