Fry Day Fun Fill-Ins

It’s Fry Day….let’s have some fish, Kali.  Remember, Elfin John caught one for us.  Sounds good!

Shall we have sushi or wait for the stove to go on again. Sushi….I’ve never had sushi, Shoko.

Oh, my stars this is ghastly!  It’s tough and rubbery….yuck!  Wait, if you pull hard enough you can rip it into small pieces.  Ya, it rips like cloth….what?  It is cloth……super pukey!  I’m not happy Kali.

Is Elfin John laughing at us? He is laughing at us. He is chuckling away like a wee nincompoop.

Forget him Shoks, it’s time for Fryday’s Fill-Ins with us, *bow* *bow*. Right, 15 and Meowing and McGuffy’s Reader are the hosts once again for the post.                                                     

Kali will do the first two sentences and I will finish off with the last two sentences.

Here are the sentences.
1. I can’t believe..…THE HOUSE ON THE CORNER is still sold. IT’S A RATTY OLD PLACE. You wouldn’t catch me in a dilapidated house like that.

2. I have…..SOME NAILPOLISH ….. on Craigslist. I HELPED MAKE IT AND IT’S SO COOL.                                                        

SHOKO’S PICTURE IS ON THE FRONT. MOL

Over to you Shoks.

3. Going into December, the weather outside is …..FAR TOO WARM FOR US.  IT SHOULD BE -15c.  IT’S KINDA SCARY CAUSE THIS MEANS THE COLD IS JUST WAITING AND WILL POUNCE WHEN WE LEAST EXPECT IT.

4. My current weakness is…..THE WATER ACTIVATED FISH.  I CAN BE FOUND SITTING ON THE SIDE OF THE SINK DRINKING WATER AND NOSING THE WEE FISH.                                             

There you have it, our sentences for Fill it in Friday.                                                           

 

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.                                                         

Buried by Friendly Friday Fill Ins

It’s time for Friendly Friday Fill Ins with our co-hosts Ellen from 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader.                                                        

1. If someone were visiting my area, I would recommend a visit to…..THE LANE.  THERE WE CAN VIEW THE WILD FLOWERS, MOUSE HUTS, OTHER FRIENDS AND MANY NAPPING SPOTS IN THE SUN.                                               

2. My favorite room in my home is…THE LIVING ROOM.  THIS IS WHERE MY CONDO IS AND I LOVE MY CONDO.  I CAN SEE OUT THE WINDOW AND TALK TO THE CROWS.                                                        

I’ll answer the last two Kali.  Thank 

you sis.

3. Back-to-school time makes me think of…SHADES OF NAIL POLISH……  YOU SEE WHILE SHOKO WENT TO VIRMIN COLLEGE, I WENT TO FINISHING SCHOOL.  SO MY EDUCATION IS MUCH DIFFERENT THAN SHOKO’S.  THIS IS WHY SHOKO HAS THE MANNERS OF A PIG AT TIMES.                                                              

4. My favourite year of school was…..THE SECOND YEAR, because….. WE STARTED LEARNING ETIQUETTE.  MY WORLD CHANGED WHEN I COULD ACT LIKE A SOUTHERN BELLE BUT HAVE THE TEMPERAMENT OF A NORTHERN CANADIAN CAT.                                                         Have a great Fish Day.                                                          

Friday’s Fantabulously Friendly Fill-Ins

Ellen from 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader have given us four sentences to fill in with the way we see things.  We plan to take turns and let you know how we feel.                                                                               SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI……ORANGE

A law I would like to see passed is…….a law making Catnip, British Columbia’s national plant.  Then give every cat here, their very own plant.                                                                                Life as it is today.

 

2. My favorite card game is…..Go Fish…I love fishing.  I f I could catch a salmon….I’d be set for life.                                                                     We’re waiting patiently for the fish to drop from the sky.  Mom says that the mama fish drops a whole pile of eggs and then they hatch.  C’mon a whole bunch of eggs drop into the pool.  We’re waiting. MOL                                                                      Ok Kali my turn..you go rest your paws.

3. With Summer unofficially here, …...planting the veggie garden is a must as the weather is warm so the plants will sprout ahead when the rains come.
                                                                                                
Here I am in the pea patch last year.  Such a peaceful place to sleep.
4. A favourite Summer memory is……catching mice over at the retired mechanic’s backyard.  I can sleep under the vehicles. or stalk mice.  His backyard is way more fun than ours.
                                                                       
   There you have it my friends.  This was cool so thanks to Ellen and Anna for this opportunity.  
                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

 

Normandy/Omaha Beach….A piece of History

To read about mom and dad’s first meeting with Phenny and his family click on Easy’s Blog.

The next day these five didn’t waste time but got into Phenny’s Elephant Skate and for an elephant it was one compact elephant and they headed toward the Atlantic,  It was a long ride of about three hours.  Mom wasn’t used to sitting for so long anymore and kept getting sleepy.  Phenny helped with that…he told her things about his mom and dad that had mom wide awake.  He said his mom was renting herself out as a part-time carpenter and her dad was taking dancing lessons.  Mom was fascinated.  Is mom ever gullible!  Geesh! MOL                                                      They all arrived safely in Normandy  The little house we were renting was a beauty.                                                                             There were even 3 bedrooms so we could um and awe about which room we could have.

Unpacked we headed for Omaha Beach.                                                         This quaint house marked the start of Omaha Beach.                                                                      The only words mom understood were Omaha Beach,  camping and tennis.

While waiting mom sat on the Oceanic Kayaks.  She got up, heard a snap and landed on her face like a sack of hammers.                                                              That was a boo boo and she was determined though the knee hurt, it would not slow her down…ya right!  She never got down to Omaha Beach to find a used shell for a remembrance.  It’s probably against the law anyway.

Katty and mom made their recipe for Shopping Around The World….Salmon fish cakes.                                                                         Phenny was an enormous help.  If you want to read the Salmon Fish Cake Recipe….just click on the name.

We all decided to visit the Canadian cemetery and leave a couple of Canadian flags and candles with covers to guard against the rain.                                                                       

Phenny and Flat Shoko left their blessings for those that had fought for their freedom.

Thank you fellow Canadians…your efforts are so appreciated.  I wonder if cats helped the men like in World War 1?

Mr. Phenny’s dad  took mom and dad for a drive through Normandy for a look at the different architecture of the houses.                                                                  Mom says this big house looks very official so perhaps its being used as a museum.

Too soon it was time to go back to Paris and catch the train.  They left early and arrived in Paris around noonish.  Mom was very overcome saying good bye to Katty and Phenny.  Phenny’s dad helped carry suitcases into the station.                                                                         Mom and dad thank you so much for the unforgettable visit with such fabulous peeps and of course, the one and only Da Phenny.

It was time to get on the Eurostar train and head for London from Gare du Nord.                                                                          The Eurostar goes 200 MPH.  It took about 2 hours to fly the rails to London.  They spent a total of 20 minutes in the Chunnel.                                                                            Mom and dads last view of Paris from the rails.  Isn’t this the Metro mom?

Next installment mom and dad set their paws on  London cement.                                                                    

 

 

An Under the Weather Day

What a cwappy day.  It’s pouring…..apparently the end of some hurricane decided to come all this way inland and grace us with its rain.   The wind is ahowlin’ and the leaves are blowing everywhere. I’m not impressed!                                                                             Furthermore it looks like my friends Penelope and her bro Pippin’ have had a horrible accident in the basement and may not be up to playing with us this year.  I won’t go into detail but its not a pretty sight apparently.  Mom won’t tell me anymore than that.                                                                   penelope and pippin2 Remember these cheery faces.  My friends Penelope and Pippin’.

We had such fun together.  Well what’s a kitty to do!

Kali had to go to the vet’s today too.  She didn’t want to go and told mom why but mom had her ears turned off.  Before I knew it they were back again.  I guess I must’ve fallen asleep.                                                                             Kali was very happy to get out of the carrier and disappeared before I completely woke up.  Kali has arthritis with some wasting around her hips.  The pain giver recommended fish oil and if there is no difference a capsule for arthritis will be appropriate.  Mom said it was remarkable but Kali who usually sheds all fur hanging about, so it looks like a fog has descended upon the room, didn’t shed 1 hair.                                                                              Kali vet visit3One great thing that happened today was mom got her Cat Lady box and we both helped her look inside.                                                                                                                            We exhausted ourselves with the box and are ready for a snooze.

Kali is delighted its Artsy, Fartsy Caturday  on Athena and Marie’s blog tomorrow and she gets to pose.  Simply click on the name of the hosting blog and enjoy the anipals in their artsy forms.

waterkaliHave a great weekend my friends and if you get a chance drop into Cat Scouts on Saturday as I will be celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving.  I will probably celebrate off and on for the whole long weekend.

Easy barked out his food order to Sammy but he barked in French and nobody understood him! So Sammy gave him one of everything and Easy sat down and ate all of it.
