It’s Friday and our seeds are starting to sprout. Now, dad planted these little green beauties. Mom is taking a sabbatical in her room and didn’t offer any advice. This is very unusual as mom has an opinion on just about everything.
We explained to dad that carrots were small and ever so tiny so not too many in one spot. Let’s see how he did.
The carrots sure are teeny. A soaker hose is being used for irrigation this year cause when everything grows they spread out. Then there is no space to water except the tops of plants.
The beets look quite a bit better.
I’ll take it from here Shoks. Dad put in this barrel for watering last year but I never have seen anyone use it. It makes a great perch for me to survey the nip patch though.
Out in Kali’s garden are the poppies and bleeding hearts. I hide in them and Budd tries to find me. They smell better than a nip appie.
Easy is heading home today and we are going to help light our friend’s way home. As members of Blogville, we salute you Easy and shall never forget you and your antics. Please go to The Lone Star Cats and see the others guiding Easy home. Easy and flat me giving thanks for a happy visitLooks like Easy and flat me exchanged mews and woofs and are ticked with each other but not really. Easy was wondering if he should run or go tinkles…..big decision.
Still Kali and my favourite picture is Easy arriving at my 7th birthday party.
This picture will always be the fun and playful Easy to us. Our love for Easy will live on in our hearts.
Till we meet again my dear friend. May our candle plus the others in Blogville light your way home.
Today is the last day for the Blogville Pawlympics. The closing ceremony can be found at Frankly and Ernestly Speaking’s blog. It was a wonderful summer diversion that Kali and I appreciated. We entered three events as this was our first time in the Pawlympics.
I didn’t know it was called Tuneful Farting….I thought it was Tuning into Hearts…like the Queen of Hearts. We would then sing. A lady doesn’t go around farting Shoko. We don’t even talk about those things. Well, what do you do when you have gas…blow up like a balloon from holding it in? Then we could enter you in the Macy”s Parade. MOL How rude Shoko! We excuse ourselves and go into the bathroom. No putting about the house, eh? No way. We’ll continue this fascinating fart talk later Kali.
First up was Kali singing through her butt. MOL You are gross Shoko. I was embarrassed but it was all in fun.
I followed Kali with some explosive artwork. We won first place in the cat Category. We were the only cat entries Shoko! Wait…..Madi entered too. Who’s Madi? She is awesome and a great friend at Cat Scouts.Our last entry was Fly Fishing at Dezizworld blog.
MOL, Kali your expression is priceless! Like, maybe if I ignore it…..it’ll go away. MOL
My fast paced entry was next. We walked away with gold again for our participation and efforts. Our first introduction to the Blogville Pawlympics was a positive one.
Now on to The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie. Simply click on the hosting blog to visit more anipals posing for you. It’s a coke kinda of a day my friends.
Tomorrow I’m off to get a tooth pulled, please purr for me my friends.
Here it is another Shopping Around the World hosted by Piglove and Fozziemum. This week we can make anything our little pea pickin’ hearts desire.
Kali stood up and said she wanted to be the celebrity chef from Fort Meezer, for this dish.
Hello my friends. My dish today will be Greek Potatoes
Let’s hear it for Greek Potatoes…..*smashes plate by throwing it at the wall.* “OPA!!” hehe Do you know where the Greek custom of smashing glasses and plates stems from? MOL…Stems…glasses…MOL Opa!! *smash*Me-wow
Greek tradition has it that this practice started when a rich family invited a much poorer family to dinner and to make them feel better invited them to break the plates. They were proving that friendship is everything. And there’s no better way of proving that than dining with friends over Greek food.
Without further Αντίο ( adieu in Greek) our main course for the day:
2 tablespoons & 2 teaspoons olive oil Terra Delyssay 750ml…..$7.99 3/4 cup water …free 1 clove garlic, finely chopped Elephant Garlic….$4.48 Lb. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice we use Real Lemon as it’s not as strong as the fresh lemon 950 ml $2.77 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme out of garden 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary out of garden 1 cube chicken bouillon 60 grams $2.99 3 old potatoes, peeled and quartered 0.87 LB. salt and pepper to taste
