Today's word is

REFLECT
Mom's shiny floor reflects my high beams


 This photo was taken from our back porch looking into the house.
The window was reflected in the door as were the candle sticks on the 
entertainment center.  Mom's intent was to snap my pic she got a bonus

F R I E N D S

Puppies,Kitties, and two leggers we had a very nice surprise 
yesterday.  Our mailman, whose name is *'not Earl', came to our door with a box for us.  
*(For  many years the peeps thought his name was Earl. However, when he was MIA for several weeks, Dad finally asked the substitute,  "is Earl sick"? To which the substitute replied, 
"do you mean Tony"?  So now they call him 'not Earl'!!) Not to his face of course, because that would be rude.  Neither of the peeps knows how/why they thought his name was Earl but Mom says he looks more like an Earl than a Tony.

 Sorry for the digression??!! I thought you'd like to know  what is not our mailman's name. MOL
Of course I have no thumbs and am not allowed to play with sharp objects. Thus I had to wait patiently while Mom opened the box.  I gave the contents a good sniff.....
 and as you can see I found .....
 ....what was mine in a nanosecond.
I wish you could have heard, (or maybe you did) Mom squeal when she honed in on what was for her.  All natural wild rice pancake mix and a S'mores chocolate bar straight from Mini-soda.
Oh goodness me, the senders of this most wonderful box obviously know the direct route to our hearts is through our tummies!!
Mom says she just might melt Mini-soda chocolate and drizzle it over the pancakes when she makes them.....BUTT , she made it very clear that I cannot have any!! Bummer but not to worry I have a pouch full of Friskies Party Mix

I expect by now you are all sitting on the edge of your chairs/tushes
wondering just who sent this most delicious box of goodness....

It was a 'thank you package' from my tall, dark, handsome, talented,  and best looking guy in a tie friend, Remington and his Mom Beth.
Oh and did I mention that Rem left me the most delightful 
SMELL MAIL? Remington buddy,

YOU ARE VERY WELCOME
 and thanks for the pin up too!! 
Hugs from your B(est) F(eline) F(riend) F(orever),
Madi aka Diva aka Queen

Thursday Theme Song: BJ Thomas....

We thank Hootin Anni for hosting 
she is the hostess with the mostest

As per expected Mom has another song from the 60's
I Just can't help believing
vocal by Mr. B.J. Thomas
Mom has changed a few words so they apply to Me aka Diva!!

Please click on the below video to hear this very pretty song while you look at our pictures


I just can't help believing
When she smiles up soft and gentle
 With a trace of misty morning
And promise of tomorrow in her eyes
 I just can't help believing
when she's lying close beside me
And my heart beats with the rhythm of her M E O W S
 This time the Diva is gonna stay
This time the Diva is gonna stay 
For more than one Fancy Feast Meal 
 I just can't help believing
When she slips her paw in my hand
And it feels so small and helpless
That my fingers fold around it like a glove


And I just can't help believing
When she's whispering yowling her magic complaints


 And her green eyes are shining honey sweet
This time the Diva is gonna stay 
For one more day for one more day because she knows she has it made 
and the grass is not greener anywhere else.




I just can't help believing.......
Mom woke me up from ANOTHER nap....

Once again we thank you for allowing us to have so much fun participating in Thursday Theme Song
and thank you for dropping  by to see us.
Hugs Madi and Mom

I thank my friend Hootin Anni and hostess to Thursday Theme Song for giving us this most lovely award last week.

3a.Mom made me my very own afghan.  
The row I'm sniffing is my fur yarn
3b.And she made herself a winter scarf with 2 rows of my furs
in it...(gray rows below). Thanks again Ms. Beth!!
 4. To date, Mom has printed my blog into 3 books using

FROM THIS WINDOW

I SPY MANY THINGS OF INTEREST

DO YOU SPY WHAT I SPY?


IF YOU SAID, YES MADI I SPY A  'SQUIRREL', 
THEN YOU WOULD BE RIGHT!!  
FUZZY WUZZY SCURRIED ACROSS THE
FENCE INTO MY BACK YARD, BUT I PRETENDED
I WAS NOT IMPRESSED BY HIS AGILITY.

THANKS,COLORS AND PLATES


HAPPY SUNDAY
Mom and I thank all of our blogging friends 1000 times for the
Caturday con-cat-u-lations on our 1000th post.
When we started this journey in June of 2009, Mom had no idea she'd be able to prepare 7 posts.  Lo and behold the old girl got  her groove on (Southern gals have a lot to say).  Somehow she has posted nearly, I gave her a few days off for good behavior, 7 days a week for nearly 3 years.  Your visits and comments each day are our inspiration!!
Hugs to the 1000th power to you all.
MOM here: I thank Madi for happily (LOL) posing for thousands of pictures!!
