Fridays Fill-Ins with Tyebe and Shoko at the Wheel

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 call him Budd after Buddy of Tomcat Commentary by Tim blog.   Budd enjoys being with Tyebe and she follows him around like his shadow.

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.

                                                          

Now on to the Friday Fun Fill-Ins. The first 2 were done by Ellen of 15 and Meowing where the last two were done by co-host Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs.                                                               

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                                                                

From Veggies to Fish

 

It’s harvest time in the veggie garden!  Mom has been removing the veggies and canning, freezing, dehydrating and eating the veggies.  Slowly the veggie garden is disappearing.                                                         You can see the garden is disappearing. The Brussel sprouts are slow but they taste sweeter after a frost anyhow.

The flower garden is overwhelmed with *Love Lies Bleeding* plants.  Kali and I usually go into the Love Lies Bleeding to get some shade but there was so many of them that we couldn’t get under them.  Disgusting mom!  She says next year she’ll put the Love Lies Bleeding at the back of the garden so they don’t cover all the other plants like they’re doing this year.                                                       As you can see this garden is thick with this dang plant.  The tomatoes will never turn red unless some are pulled out.

Mom sent away to Suddenly Cat for 2 fishes for us.  Gosh!  She sent away like 87 months ago and they arrived on Friday.  I was delighted with this LED fish.  It swims and lights up in water. mol                                                              I was mesmerized by this shiny and bright fish.  Think I’ll call him Jaws.

While Jaws was enjoying his swim around the water bowl, I was trying to figure out how to get him out.  No easy task my friends.  I didn’t want to get my paw wet.                                                   I want to plunk this plastic fish down at Kali’s paws.  Kali gets acne from plastic and I want to see her break out in pimples. MOL

Have a great Tuesday peeps and paws.
