Hey, this Saturday is so warm! The weatherman says +6C….toasty.
My spidey senses tell me there is another pair of paws wandering around the house. Could it be, yes it’s gotta be the white tornado!
It’s not me Shoks…I’m grabbing a few winks before you get in my face again. I don’t get in your face! I strategically place myself in a position where you can’t miss seeing me. Like I said…in my face. Whatever!
Wonder what this racket could be. It seems to be coming from the bedroom. As any good guard cat, I must uncover this mystery.
Oh no, we had forgotten bout Elfin John! Go away and leave me alone. You bugged me til Crisp Mouse last year. I’m taking a nap in my pillow tent.
No, no….I meant ALONE! I don’t want to sleep with you.
Geez, you don’t have to bow to me…I would never hurt you little Elfin. You seem like one of the good Christmas elves.
I’m flyin! hehe, I’m free.
I caught a fish for Shoko. She’ll be so impressed. For me? Thanks, Elfin J.
How bout if you do the Sunday Selfie with me, Elfin John? You like that idea. First, we must thank The Cat On My Head for holding this blog hop for so long. Furries….please drop by and visit us in our slot on the blog hop. Simply click on the blog hop name and *poof* you’re there.
*Click* Ya, you got us Elfin J but its kinda obvious you took the picture….next time look as if you are doing nothing.
I must ask you Sherl, why the get up? Oh Shoko, I have a horrible headache and the sun seems so bright today!You look as if you’ve found something new, Sherl. I have Shoko. It was right in front of our faces but we couldn’t see it. The nip amplified my deductive reasoning. It was elementary, dear Shoko. Oh really?
We have a photo of Elfin John’s stab wounds. We compared these to everyone’s teeth and fangs that entered the house over the last month to no avail. So we have exhausted all possible leads except one.
The evidence: See how the fang marks match perfectly with the puncture wounds. I see Sherl. So you know who did it? It was pure deduction my dear girl. When all other possibilities have been dismissed, then the one remaining, however improbable is the correct possibility.
Who did it? It was the ….the… DRYER MONSTER. You know, the one that eats your dad’s socks and steals face cloths. Dryer monster why did you bite Elfin John? What I can’t hear you? He says cause Elfin bugged him. Believe me Elfin can be very trying but no one deserves to be punctured. How did he bug you…um..what is your name? It’s ok you can whisper it to me. Diego the dryer monster. Nice name. You say Elfin would hang by his slippered feet from the top of the dryer and make faces at you through the glass. Seriously? Dude that would irk the cwap outta me too. Still no excuse to puncture the guy.Tell me Diego, how did you get at Elfin and then throw him in the garbage without leaving paw prints.? He says one day mom left the dryer open so he grabbed Elfin by his face and flung him into the garbage. He is surrendering to you Sherl. I will turn him over to the dryer bobbies or as you say here in Canada, the dryer RCMP. They can reprimand him.
Thank you for your hospitality Shoko and Kali. We shall meet again.
We thank Charlie of samanthamurdochblog for using her deductive powers to discover our culprit. Pop on over and visit with Charlie. Her mom is a bit of a crystal nut and always seems to have info about crystals we were not aware of.
Hey Shoko, I really miss Nellie. *sigh* Me too Kali. I don’t know about you Shoko but I want to go down and see her. Our magic carpet is getting washed after all the anti-freeze we sprayed on it to keep it from freezing. It’ll take awhile Kali. Why can’t I use my new blankie that we got from our Secret Santa? I’d like to go too but there’s no room on the blankie.
Vroom…vroom, nothing’s happening. You got to settle on the blanket and think positive thoughts of you flying on it. Can you see yourself flying on the carpet. N -n- no. Yes, yes….I’m flying! Ok sis go with it. MOL I’ve got…whooops…splat! Shag my silvervine!What happened? I was doing so well. Let’s forget it for now Kali. We’ll wait till the magic carpet is ready to go again. I think maybe its a case of both of us powering it that makes the difference.
Speaking of power have you seen Elfin John? He’s suppose to be back in his resting place. Let’s go look.No sign of Elfin John here Shoko but I found the cutest mousey, Geez we better find him Kali…he’s suppose to be sleeping. Everything is quiet and has been for a week or so. We’ll take a look throughout the house tomorrow…maybe he’s just hiding to scare us.
May the saddest day of your future be no worse Than the happiest day of your past.
Thanks toPiglove and Fozziemum for providing us a forum to tell everybody our recipes. Go Bacon!
We are supposed to be cooking up a Thanksgiving side dish but our Thanksgiving was last month, in October. Mom and dad won’t appreciate anything to do with a turkey so close to Christmas. The peeps in the States can hack it. Well, we’re a little different.
So what are we cooking then Shoko? Mom says she’s making up fish cakes. How un-Thanksgiving like. Well, this dish is for a break after all that turkey. Most of her ingredients are from the vegetable garden….but not the salmon Shoko. Too bad, we could be rich if mom could grow fish out in the garden.
What’s that Elfin John doing? You want to help us? We don’t need your help, thank you. I think we should let him help, Shoko. He may be turning over a new leaf and who are we to stop his progress. I don’t believe it Kali and now I feel guilty. Oh, alright,,,,he can help us.
Here is a picture of the ingredients.
Here is a picture of the ingredients mom forgot to show in the first photo.
Now that you’re confused we’ll tell you the ingredients:
1 onion, diced…$.030
1/4 cup shredded carrot…..garden…optional
4 average old potatoes…..garden
1/4 cup green pepper…$0.25
1/4 cup red pepper……$0.25
4 drops Worcester sauce…optional…cupboard
celery leaves….2 tbsps..optional
1/2 cup frozen peas
Sockeye salmon…..150 grams (5.3 ounces)… $5.25
Mom sends to St, Jean’s Cannery for her salmon. Wonderful tasting salmon. St. Jean’s Cannery is in the city of Nanaimo where Nanaimo Bars were invented.
We are all ready to get underway.
Fry the peppers, onion,potatoes, dill, fall, nip, Kali, electric, cakes and shredded carrot, until they are just soft. Throw them into the mashed potatoes with Worcester sauce. Add the dill and all other ingredients. Your mixture is set to be fried. Hey you…Elfin!!! Get away before you fall in.
Good grief, I need a nip smoothie. This little guy is getting to me.
Thank you Kali.
Now, lets get out the electric fry pan. Turn the temperature to high and spray a bit of oil in the bottom of the pan, about a tbsp. Shape the cakes into round shapes about the size of a hamburger patty. When these rounds are in the frying pan press them flatter with a spatula. Our fry pan holds 7 medium fish cakes.
These are the cooking fish cakes. Mom is not great at flipping them over but she’s the boss. There you have it friends. Now for a sip of my nip smoothie.
We were waking up slowly this cool morning when the dresser drawer popped open. Kali and I looked in the direction of the drawer waiting for more noise….why get up when we don’t have to, right? Mom hollered at me, “Wha….Shoko what have you done?” Honest it wasn’t me mom.
Mom got on her dressing gown and headed over to take a peek. Kali and I wandered over to see.
Oh my! Who are you and what are you doing in mom’s nightie drawer?You must be Kali, the white one. My name is Elfin John. I come from the deep south. Mom brought me up here when your mom and dad went south earlier this year. I’ve been sleeping in here with the soft clothes.
Think I’ll mellow out here and get my bearings.
I thought you were mellowing out? Whoohoo,…not with this stuff around….gimme some more….Leave our nip alone..MOM!
II put him on the counter, he won’t bother you Shoko.
Looks good….sniff…hack, hack….it stinks…..yuck! You plan on eating this garbage….hop to it…I’ll take more nip, it smells so good. Hey pass the nip fuzzy black face. MOM
