Shoko and I mewed it over and she said I could pose for this Sunday’s selfie. She seems to be awfully giving for Shoko. Hope she feels ok.
I took this selfie while helping mom decorate the tree. I didn’t like how the ornament was hanging and was trying to get her to understand. No mom over to the right. Not on the same branch as the reindeer, further over. Oh to have thumbs! There…too far…you got it…leave it…..step away from the tree mom.
We have had unusually freezing weather for two weeks now and problems are starting to happen. The Nechako River has started to freeze in parts and form a barrier causing the river to flow its banks. Fortunately, the river is only flowing through a favourite hiking park, Cottonwood Park. As of today peeps houses are safe but emergency measures have been implemented.This park is where mom discovered the joys of white cranberries. She picked a bucket of them, (they are teeny), brought them home and made cranberry sauce. She insisted that dad and her eat the cranberry sauce in spite of it needing a load of sweetness. None was added…just a touch. Dad kept declining any chicken if it came with the premature cranberries. I think dad had a party when they were finally gone. MOL
Have a great day and try Flamin’ Tiger nail polish….. it brings out the wild cat in you.
You know whose coming for a visit Shoko? Who, Mrs. Claus is running away from home? It’s Sammy of One Spoiled Cat. He is flying around the world and will be stopping here for a visit. When? He’s here Shoko.Sammy!! You look refreshed. The cold air rushing by your ears must sound like an ocean but feeling it on your furry face would be awesome. Sammy welcome to our house, have some dried nip from the garden. Mom mixed it with silvervine. It’s a trip without a balloon, MOL Your operating the Hot Air Balloon so need all your faculties about you. OK….just let me get a sniff and we’ll look about Prince George.
Look….Even Cow Kitty came to see you off, You are an icon around here Sammy. We talk of you often and always yell, “SAMMY” before we eat any bacon we get. Bye Shoko and Sammy, have a great time. Quit yakking at Sammy and let them take off, Cow Kitty.
Up, up and away we go. There’s a moose for you. It’s a female that probably lives among the trees going up to UNBC. UNBC is the University of Northern British Columbia. maybe we’ll fly over it. This is the Fraser River, where mom would walk Kali when they lived in the other house. They walked along the beach beside the river. Mom saw 2 beavers swimming about a foot and a half from Kali. Kali was busy getting a drink and didn’t notice them. A typical Kali move. This park is Ft. George Park.
I know it’s really cold tonight Sammy. The weatherman said -30C. A wee bit nippy ole pal. This is UNBC, Sammy. Our pride and joy. Do you see the yellow trees. These are pines that were killed when the north was inundated with Pine Beetles a few years back. What a loss.
See down there and to your left is downtown Prince George. I was born on the streets of Prince George. I think that’s why loud peeps don’t turn my crank now. You can see in the background the pulp mills. Prince George was known for its pulp mills at one time. The mills had many workers and was the major industry here. The town stunk of sulphur which is used in the process. It was a horrible smell mom said but the townsfolk said it was the, *smell of money.* Isn’t this a beautiful mountain and just on the outskirts of town.
Oh look Sammy it’s the Northern Lights. When we get away from the downtown area we get to see them but only when the sky is clear. Sammy, you’re looking rather cold. Let’s go back home and you can get warmed up before you are off to the next town to visit. We love ya Sammy and Kali wants to kiss you for just being you. I’m not the mushy sort like Kali but you mean the world to me Sammy. I am delighted you came to visit our frozen neck of the woods.
Have a safe trip to your next destination Sammy. Bye!
