Flower Friday with Dory


Today I am joining my gal pal Dory Flower Friday and I thank her Bro, Jakey, for teaching mom how to use Pizap.  These pictures
were taken at my peeps friend's house last week.

I am Glad-i-ola Jakey taught Mom how to Pizap me into places I would never get to go!!


OMDs....my Golden friend Molly, from Oregon, is sharing
her Fuschias with us today.  Wednesday it was 75 hot
degrees.  Molly was cooling it in the peebles.


I think I see an itty bitty anty

Their butterfly bush just started to bloom while my peeps were visiting
They have at least 87 Ruby-throat hummingbirds.
Ms. Sally had to fill up the feeder several times


I saved the funniest story for last!!  During the visit everyone was sitting in the sun room.
They were talking to Mr. Gary about his grape vineyard (in the background).  All of a sudden when Mr. Gary took a breath, I'm told,  mom stood up hollering WHAT IS THAT?  
Ms. Sally said Mom looked like a K9 Pointer.  
Mr. Gary said oh that is a *ground hog.  OMGHs mom squealed I have never seen one in the furs!!  They have a gazillion up there.  

Since mom didn't have her camera we are have a re-enactment.  
 Evidently they don't normally show up in the middle of the day.  He was actually heading down the hill to his burrow.  She couldn't find a photo of one turned that way



*The groundhog, or woodchuck, is one of 14 species of marmots. These rodents live a feast-or-famine lifestyle and gorge themselves all summer to build up plentiful reserves of fat. After the first frost, they retreat to their underground burrows and snooze until spring, drawing their sustenance from body fat. While hibernating, the animal's heart rate plunges, and its body temperature is not much warmer than the temperature inside its burrow.

Thursday Tale: T-storms


Last Saturday we had a surprise loud thunder storm.
I don't like t-storms.  It rained H A R D
I did like any smart feline. I headed for higher ground
and pulled out my 'brella!!

Note from Mom:  During a storm Madi always finds us and will sit
half way between us.  I was upstairs her Dad was downstairs.

Tuesday Tales

My peeps went to visit their FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES
last Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  We'll be sharing some of the photos this week.  Ms. Sally and Mom have been friends for 54 years.  They are crazypants when they get together.  Dad and Mr. Gary just LOL at them.  For instance Ms. Sally always leaves something fun in their room.  This year she put
a chocolate Tootsie Pop on their pillows.  
Dad almost loves Tootsie pops as much as he loves me!!


This gorgeous Cooper's Haw landed on their fence.
Mom had just said I wish he would spread his wings...
lo and behold he did!! 

 My Teddy he is a real brown bear but 
he was not in Ms. Sally's yard MOL MOL.
He was at one of the places they visited.

Same picture as above but w/o Madi


Me and my otters

Cat Scout Madi hanging with the cubs



Cousin Harley was 11 yesterday!!
His peeps gave him a baff for a pressie.
Crazy pants Harley likes baffs 'cause
after a baff he gets all swaddle in a warm
towel.

(un) Easy Sunday....

I could be wrong!! I often misinterpret things; however,
I hear buzzing  and feel a breeze
There must be a drone in the house. 

Because I know my devoted Mom would never stand over me
laughing while asking me where is my waistline.
If I've told her once, I've told her 87 times
I AM FLUFFY

THE END
