3 WORD WEDNESDAY ON Park Day






REMINDER FROM FINN AND GIZMO




That means between now and April 26th (you have three weeks!) you need to take your peep to a park and get photographic evidence you were there.  Then, on that day, April 26, write a post about your park visit, and leave me a comment on Finn's blog, letting them know you went to a Park!  We will have a random drawing for some prizes with all those who enter.  And, I have to tell you, we have been getting some great prizes for this.
Now, I just said “we.”  You didn’t think I could do this event all by myself, did you?  No way!  I am happy to report that our Blogville Outdoor/Woodsman Guide, Gizmo, is co-hosting this event with me!  And tomorrow, you can head on over to his blog for some tips on how to find parks in your neck of the woods.

Update on Grandpa

His surgeon said his brain CT showed the brain 

had stabilized.  No more bleeding or bruising 

Dr. K feels Grandpa's condition is reversible 

but it will take time....he will re-evaluate

things with us again on Friday Morning.

THANK YOU ALL FOR STOPPING BY YESTERDAY

LEAVE THE WONDERFUL WORDS OF 

ENCOURAGEMENT....YOU ARE ALL THE


BEST

Meet My Cabinet: Abby

Today we are featuring Abby 
Head Florist in Residence from Manx Mews






1. Please introduce yourself(selves), tell us your age and a very special
** Madi I am Abby and since living with Mom I have learned to be a master gardener kitty in residence. I will be 14 on my purrday in July.**
2. If you had and alter ego, who would you like to be and why
**I would be a master jedi knight like Yoda, ummm Mom says I look a little like Yoda, now I don't where she gets that because I am black and white not green. I think Yoda was very wise and I admire that.**

3. What do you like best/least about where you live
**I like living here best because of Mom. I have her rapped completely around my little paws. I get all of my wishes attended to, and my least favorite thing here is Boo. I hate her.**
4. Who are some peeps/furiends you'd like to meet and why
**Well of course I wish I could meet my boyfriendcat Sammy Meezer, he lives way up in a faraway place called NOO York and I live in FL, so we just teleport over to each other's house.**
5. If you could give one piece of random advice what would it be?
**I am the cat and don't forget that!**

6. What do you do for fun

**At nearly 14 my fun is sleeping!**

7. What is the first thing you do each morning

**I sit outside Mom's room and meow for her to come out and feed me.**
8. What is the first thing you notice about a new furiend
**Their purrsonality!**
9. Tell us how you came to live in your family and how you got your name.
**Well my name was Abby before I came to live with Mom in 2005, so she kept it. I was almost 6 then. The family who had me didn't like me and gave me to a Rescue group and they introduced me to Mom.**
10. What is your absolute favorite food
**Oh paws down it's Temptations! Got any?**

BONUS Question:  Being experts in the field of gorgeous flowers, please tell us the most exotic flower you have and your secret for keeping it healthy.
**They aren't exotic but Mom has several plants she inherited from her Grandmother. They were mature when her Grandmother was alive and they are still thriving. It makes her think of her Grandmother. The most exotic one is a night bloooming cyrus.**
Thank you for all of your great questions Madi!
Purrs
Abby
Abby mom and I thank you for taking time away from your naps and snacks...now go rest sweet friend.
Hugs Madi

***********
Grandpa condition stayed about the same on Sunday.
They did change some of the meds they were giving him
which made him a little less fidgety but he is still moving his legs, hands and arms and Dad saw him open his eyes 
once....Mom was talking to the nurse.

As of Saturday afternoon there was not much change in Grandpa's condition from Friday...which of course means he is not better 
BUT 
HE IS NOT WORSE EITHER.  He is fidgeting some and trying to pull out the gazillion tubes so they have to keep him sedated.
