Artsy Caturday

It’s time for our art work already Kali.  This has been a short week.  We are tied with the record snowfall of 1944.  Wow!  That’s a long time ago.  I think that’s older than mom and dad.
You see the stick coming out of the snow between two humps of snow? This stick designates where the fire hydrant is located. With the stick coming out, the snow removal guys know not to dump a heap of snow on top of it.

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty is having her blog hop of artsy animals and we’re going to join.  Just click on the blog name and hop over to see the wonderful art of some gifted peeps and their ever-helpful anipals.                                                  
I’m attempting to get my head warmed in the sun but the sun keeps moving.

This is me with the Fairy Art on Lunapic.  I like it!  Mom didn’t make me look dorky for a change.

Have a warm and happy weekend friends.

Investigations Begin

KALI…..ORANGE

mol  Mom will be never know I actually could get up on her desk.  I haven’t been here in many, many months.

                                                              Oh my nip, what a mess she has here.  I should’ve come by sooner.  She really needs a swift kick in the butt, I mean, a gentle reminder to stack items nicely.  She’s even got a duster in here.  Hopeful thinking on her part. MOL

                                                         I’m the queen of the pile, I said with a big smile. hehe

What to do while I’m here?  It’s too uncomfortable to sleep on all this crap.

                                                              Mom will probably think Shoko printed on the screen, after all I haven’t been able to get up here.  What fun.

 A reminder for mom of the time.                                                             I hear mom coming….colour me gone.                                                              

 

 

Hippity Hoppity Onwards To Harrods

 

It’s time for the Hop On /Off bus.  Off they go to hop off at Chinatown and walk up to Covent Garden.

Dad jumped on the bus and went upstairs to the deck on top. Mom looked at the stairs and figured she’d keep the bus driver company.                                                   

They got off at Chinatown and saw a pub that called to them.

They had to go inside and see all the slugs.  Rip off!  There were no slugs but a delicious bottle of Light Pepsi waited for them.

 

Off they went to Covent Garden.  They had to see where James Bowen and Streetcat Bob had been busking the Big Issue magazine.  Since those times James and Streetcat Bob have accomplished a lot.  These two former street guys are financially secure and can buy stuff they never ever thought they could at one time.                                                                               

The next stop for mom and dad was Harrods.                                                             The first stop was the food halls and specifically the different fancy teas.

Mom was in her glory and bought Harrods Tea….Afternoon Blend                                                                       Then it was over to the food halls for a peek at the fancy foods.                                                                           Mom saw a sandwich she just had to have.  It was two pieces of rye bread with butter, a cooked thinly sliced beet, smoked salmon, cut thinly and a few bean sprouts on top.  The sandwich was cut in fours…just the way mom likes.  Mom offered half to dad, who wrinkled up his nose but mom insisted as they should always be open to new ideas.  Dad took a quarter and loved it so much he ate the other quarter.

Mom wanted to buy something from Harrods other than just the tea, so decided to buy some perfume.  It cost more than the ready cash they had.  So dad would have to pull out more loot.  Dad disappeared to stand alone by a wall so he could get at his money belt.  A store security man went over and told him there was none of that in this store.  The security man thought dad was playing with himself….what a hoot!  Dad had to explain what he was trying to do without turning red  with embarrassment. MOL                                                               After purchasing the perfume our travellers went back to the hotel with their treasures.

Mom explained to dad that she needed her furs washed but the sink was as big as her face.  Dad said never fear, he will help.  So dad shampooed and used conditioner on mom’s fur.  Trouble is he didn’t get all the soap and conditioner out…a very difficult task.  So mom happily was walking around with a half pound of shampoo in her fur.  I sound like Shoko don’t I?  Let’s get the drama queen in here to explain the next chore of moms.  Thanks Kali.  Mom told dad she needed a bath also but the bathtub was too deep, she couldn’t step into it.  The bathtub was an old-fashioned tub but with handrails on each side of the tub.  The back didn’t go straight but was more like a slide.  A funny looking tub to mom.  Dad helped mom and she slid down the back of the tub and landed with a plop….kinda hard on the butt she said.  Yet here she was with water and soap. The inside of the tub was indented the shape of her legs and butt.  There was a problem because of these indentations she couldn’t lift her swollen legs  but the water felt so good.  A helping paw from dad and she was out and never wanted back in ever again. MOL

So sorry about the quality of the photo…think mom had too much tea before shooting the picture.   Do you see the grooves?                                                                    Well shampoo head and her mate, Helpful Harry, drifted off to sleep very quickly.

 

Next installment involves a train ride up country.

 

 

                                                                   

 

 

 

Happy Cinco De Mayo Day

Kali and I are headed off to Cat Scouts for the Mexican fiesta.  We are meeting Einstein and Buddy there.

These are some pictures of us last year at the Cat Scouts Party.                                                                                                             Einey and I stealing away for a few moments of alone time.                                                                     Kali marches her stuff in front of the public.

 

Have a great Mexican day and remember some tacos for a snack.                                                                               

Summer is coming and Hopes are High

Hooray, hooray, it’s the 1st of May.  Outdoor strolling starts today.

Look how curious Kali is at seeing the neighbourhood for the first time this year.                                                                     Soon it will be time for my veggie garden.  I’m so excited.

Who’s that?  What are you doing you woofie…you?  That’s disgusting!  Where do you live?  I’ll go and pooh on your lawn!  Well, I never.

These are all signs that summer is coming.

Have a sunny day.                                                                

A Visit with a New and Different Dentist

SHOKO….. BLACK
KALI….. ORANGE
COW KITTY…..GREEN

It’s time for us to get mom up and active, Kali.  I’ll go yell on the stairs and you can start talking in your loud manner.  I’m not LOUD like some ole fishwife…..I’m emphatic.  With a tad of urgency in my voice.  You mean more like a scream…MOL  It’ll get her up and rootin’ around for our brekky.  Why’s she so tired Shoko?  She has had a toothache for a few days so went to the dentist.  Her regular dentist was on her week off but her husband, Dr. Lopez was on, so she made an appointment with him.                                                       aacounter-shokoOff she toddled to meet him and find out what gives with this tooth.  Was he nice Shoko?  Her regular dentist is so nice.  Mom likes her, as far as she likes any dentist.                                                                  aakalibaskJust listen Kali.  Mom went into his office and had the x-rays taken and then the nurse introduced Dr. Lopez.  Mom was speechless.  This doesn’t happen often friends.  He looked a little like, “Sam I Am” from Dr, Seuss.

He shook mom’s hand instead of raising his hat.  Every word he said, he expressed with his hands,  He had on white gloves…..ok, they were medical gloves but the image was the same.                                        aack2What?  He turned out to be Sam I Am.  What a dentist he would make!  No, no….he behaved like Sam I Am, Cow Kitty.  Do you know mom’s tooth didn’t hurt anymore!  Turned out it was her sinus’ acting up and they made her tooth pound. He prescribed antibiotics. When he told mom she shouldn’t have a prescribed anti-biotic without taking food with it, he wagged his finger back and forth just like Sam I Am.

When mom left the dentist, she felt good to have met Sam I Am’s human twin.

One of our favourite Dr. Seuss quotes:
So be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act.                                                                                      sistersinarmswinter               

                                        

Gimme Beads and Fancy Things

SHOKO…..BLACK

KALI…..ORANGE

Yesterday was Fat Tuesday, a French Catholic tradition that celebrates debauchery before Lent begins with Ash Wednesday for Christians. The festival date varies from city to city, but most Americans base their celebration of Mardi Gras off of the famous celebration in New Orleans.                                                                                  mardimaskKali do you remember when mom and dad went to New Orleans?  Oh ya, they had fun.  So did we…MOL,  Dai$y of databbiesotrouttowne was a riot.  The trout she brought to the party was so delicious and big.  This was the first time we tasted trout, where has it been all our life?

Mom and dad went south right after Mardi Gras two years ago..  Mom brought us back some beads that were hanging on the trees.                                                                            shoko-with-mardi-gras-beads

Mom said the houses were so colourful and the streets so pretty.

dscn0836This is a circle street near the Confederate Museum.  They had an Italian sandwich sitting on a park bench watching the birds.                                                        shoko-withmaskDo you get the feeling mom and dad are going away again this year?  I do Shoko.  Wonder where they’ll be off to this year?  Mmmm…I wonder.  We’ll be partaying again this year then.

 

May you sleep like the pigs….How do pigs sleep?

With their eyes closed of course.                                                                                        sistersinarmswinter
