Samantha of Samanthamurdochblog nominated us for the  “The Shuffle The Music Tag” and we thank you, Samantha, for thinking of us.  Granted she nominated us in August and us lazy ones are just getting around to posting now.  Glad Samantha never held her breath waiting for our response.

We are sharing with you our playlist……actually its Kali’s playlist on the computer.  I turn the music on when Kali gets uptight with whatever pains she’s currently enduring.  Kali is very fond of all of these songs as she becomes mellow and relaxes.  Seeing these are her songs, she can guide us through them.  Take it away, Kali.

For “The Shuffle The Music Tag” just put whatever device you use to listen to your music on, and press the shuffle button, and write a little something about the first fifteen songs that come up, what they mean to you, their history, whatever takes your fancy.  We will be doing 10 songs.  Then nominate seven or more people to participate, obviously letting them know.

 

I use the computer and *I Tunes* so mom shuffled my music.

1/ The first song up is I Guess The Lord Must Be In New York City by Harry Nilsson.  This song has relaxing lyrics and the tempo is perfect for drying nail polish on my toes.  Granted occasionally I swing my paws over the side of my Princess Bed as the tune is so catchy.  All in all a soothing song.                                                           Sorry, the sun is blocking my paw but my nails are drying faster. mol

2/ Ferry Cross the Mersey by Gerry and the Pacemakers

This song is so relaxing that if I get upset, this song has me clapping my paws and mellowing with sleepy eyelids.  Mom was saying that these chaps played at many of the spots in England that the Beatles did.  Well, I’ll be a bug!                                                

3/ Somewhere My Love…Lara’s Theme from Dr. Zhivago Al Martino

Mom thinks I like this song but it makes me feel so cold as the peeps struggled so hard in this movie.  It’s a great song for those hot summer days. Cools off the warmest of days.

4/ Everybody’s Talkin’ At Me by Harry Nilsson

Typical Harry Nilsson song with soothing sounds from a powerful voice.  This song was featured in Midnight Cowboy with Jon Voight.

5/ Gonna Get Drunk and Be Somebody by Toby Keith

Mew, mew….this song is great when I’m feeling down cause my paws are hurting so I feel very unimportant.  The upbeat sounds of this song make it so I can’t be down for long….I want to get up and investigate a drawer and try to find some nip.                                                           

6/ Digging up Bones by Randy Travis

This song reminds me of all my woofie friends and their favourite pass time.  It would be neat to bury one’s treats and come back later to retrieve them.  Unfortunately, I have this thing about dirt. I will not eat anything with dirt all over it.  It’s a very icky habit.  Shoko eats things she buries but not moi.

7/ The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald by Gordon Lightfoot

A terrible plight for these sailors out on Lake Superior or Lake Gitchee Gumee  To me, this is not relaxing but Gordon Lightfoot has a great voice and mom likes the song.

8/ Canadian Girls by Dean Brody

This is a song just for us Canadian girls, Shoko, mom and me.  It makes me feel happy with its upbeat music.  I want to dance but Shoko’s a terrible dancer….always stepping on my paws.                                                  

She looks good but watch those spikes….they hurt like hell-o!

9/ Blue Canadian Rockies by Jim Reeves

This song drives me crazy!  I love this guy’s voice.  He makes the sun shine in my heart when he sings to me.  What a voice…..if only my Buddy could sing like him.*sigh*                                           

Isn’t he somethin’? hehe.

10/  Moon River by Andy Williams

This is my very favourite song!  I could just float away on the words.  I can just picture Moon River as blue as can be without an insect or reptile in it.  Just cruising along the river in a paddlewheeler with  Buddy holding my paw. *Aha, sigh*  I know it’s supposed to be the Mississippi River and that’s so muddy that your shadow will have dirt on it…..forget all that just go with the sweet music and the illusion you get.

There you have it, friends.  My playlist and a hot one it is too.  I have more songs on it but this will give you an idea of my favourites.

We’re supposed to nominate 7 peeps/kitties for The Music Tag.  I am reluctant because I would like to hear everybody’s idea of good music.  Phenny of Easy Blog...oh Phenny, tell me your playlist, Bacon from Piglove….bring it on bud.  May I say that anyone else that wishes to do the playlist, please let us know so we can admire your songs.

MOM…..RED VIOLET
KALI…..ORANGE

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE

1. I would never be friends with someone who…. IS NEGATIVELY  JUDGEMENTAL WITH ANIMALS AND PEEPS.  THERE ARE SO MANY SWEET AND KIND FOLKS OUT THERE…WHO NEEDS PEEPS OR ANIMALS RAINING ON MY PARADE.  I’D RATHER BE ALONE.

2. I will never refuse…..A TREAT….YOU THOUGHT I WOULD?…NOT LIKELY.  I HAVE TO GET THE TREAT BEFORE SHOKO DOES…HEHE  WE BOTH LOVE CATNIP GREENIES                                            

Some kitty said they were good for me….I don’t think so….they taste too good.

 

My turn Kali. K, take it away Shoks.

3. I have never been to…..THAILAND….OR ANYWHERE ELSE OTHER THAN THE VET’S PLACE AND HER PLACE STINKS! , but…..I’D RATHER GO TO THAILAND THAN TO THE VET’S. Cause the vets is the vets!  Thailand is where the Siamese originated.  Perhaps Kali and I can go on our Magic Carpet one day.                                                       

4. When it comes to…..LAZYING IN THE SUN, I …..THINK SUMMER HAS GOT ALL THE SEASONS BEAT.

                                               

Aww…summer dirt shine….mol. 

We’re sending out special purrs and licks to our good friend Phoebe of 15 and Meowing as she is having a tough time eating right now.  Her mom and dad are feeding her every few hours with a syringe. Phoebe, you are being sent the POTP from us.  Please join us in sending Phoebe the POTP.

Have a great Fry Day my friends.                                                   

Sunday Selfie with Shoko

Sunday is selfie day and The Cat On My Head is once again hosting Sunday Selfie which is a blog hop so hop over there to put your selfie in the blog hop or just laugh…peer at your buds.

Ahh…A lazy Sunday afternoon…feels good to scratch and stretch.  What’s that noise on the front porch.  Hey you….ya, you furry face.  What are you doing on my porch?                                                       

 

Sorry sir but this house looks familiar.  Of course its familiar, you pass it everyday and don’t call me sir….I’m a lady cat. Really, I never knew that.                                                                     Do I live here?

                                                                             For a shrew’s sake….no way!  Do I look like someone you live with?  Not really….you would scare me.  I’m not scary just emphatic.  Geesh….make me feel guilty why don’t you?

  You live beside this house.  You have no brothers or sisters.  Go look at the house next door and it will look very familiar.                                                        Thank you sir….I mean madam…um… female kitty.  Just get off the porch and go home.  Gotcha!  Bye!

Who’s ever heard of a cat forgetting where she lives?  She’s a kook.

 

 

      

Shopping And Chowing Down Around The World

cute-kitten-sitting-shopping-cartHi ya fellow food fanatics and welcome to Fozziemum and Piglove’s Shopping Around the World.  Today we are going to make a dish which both mom and dad love.                                                                     chefshokThe dish is simple.  That’s exactly why mom likes it.  Not many ingredients and takes about 2 minutes to make up.  You can add more vegetables and really have your whole meal in one casserole dish.  Mom usually throws everything together in the casserole dish and then there’s only one dish to clean.  Lazy or what?

Pork Chops in Gravy

Ingredients:

2 bone-in pork chops……………..$3.99 a Ib. at Real Canadian Superstore

1 pkge. Clubhouse Mushroom Gravy………………………$1.39 at Superstore on sale.

If you want you can add mini potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, red pepper or any ingredient your heart desires.  Caution:  if you are piling the extras in with more pork chops, you’ll need more packages of gravy.

The cool part of this dish, beside the taste, is the only calories are in the pork chops.  No fattening gravy to add extra weight to those hips.

Mom puts the pork chops under the broiler for 2 minutes on each side to burn off the extra fat.  She pulls out a 1.5 qt. casserole dish and whisks the gravy and water in the casserole dish.  After patting the chops dry with a paper towel, she puts the chops into the gravy in the casserole dish.

Turn the oven to 250 degrees and cook for 2 and a half hours or when the chops are fall apart tender. Voila….done!                                                     porkchopgravy  You’re right, these chops are supplied by Mr. Google. Mom made a sandwich for supper….its too hot to have the oven on tonight.  The pork chops look the same as the ones supplied by Mr. Google though.

Bony Petites my friends.
