They are back

Just in time to celebrate my 8th

 blogaversary!!


Their plane arrived at RDU at 9pm last night...

this post auto posted at midnight.
Hopefully the peeps will be up and about soon
so we can start catching up


Mom has 87,000,000 photos to go through and rest assured she will share but in the meantime, I'm here to tell you they have been traipsing all over

 and



My blog went live on June 16, 2009....Mom did not have one picture of me...

::gasp::  

AND she did not know exactly how to download photos from the camera to the 'puter. She put up one post that first week. The following week she LEARNED how to load photos... but then she was worried she would not have anything to say...........but here were are 8 years later...and trust me when I say...she has more pictures of me now than she has of my human sister.  She has posted nearly every day since her first post with a picture of me...



Presenting our very first post June 27, 2009, starring Madison D Cat.

#3. Thoroughly Poetic Thursday on Monday
Since they will be away on Thursday, we are posting our B poem today
Angel Sammy has suggested one of these words:
banana, bath, brave, balloon
Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Teddy and Angel Sammy


Mom and Dad are  *flying away
I know not where nor do I care. 
This kitty is fearless and brave she will be.
Miss K will be here, to spread cheer.
Food will flow freely. There will
be no bath for me. 
I will miss watching bananas floating in mom's morning
bowl of little O's. 
Balloons are full of hot air and are seen at the fair.
The outside has static 
which makes my furs frantic.
********
*4. PSA: *House Pawty come one come all
OMCs you will never believe it my devoted peeps are abandoning me tomorrow.  I'm not upset. Why you ask? Well because I have a most wonderful pet sitter.  She is not stingy with food and she is great company!!  

Mom says maybe this photo might give you some hints as to their 
destination and what they will be doing....

That's all folks...we packed this post full!!

I hope you enjoyed this it...'cause it will be up for a a while.  Feel free to visit us again.
Hugs Madi your bfff 

*ps house pawty starts at 7am tomorrow shhhhh  it is a secret*

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Teddy and Angel Sammy

This will be our 3rd attempt at poetry from A-Z
Angel Sammy and Teddy are changing it up a bit.
They are giving us a choice of words to use.  Mom
jumped the gun last week by writing her poem early so she 
is using her own word.  She promises to be less of a rebel 
from now on!

Apes

Apes like grapes this I know to be true
Apes are hairy, they never need capes , 
Apes are 'pickers' of this I'm sure. 
For this there is no cure.
Apes use their thumbs not for hitching
but for holding the grapes, 
picking at nits and finding pits.
However, they cannot knit!

Sincerely Madi and mom

Moi!!
Thank you Mom Ellen

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday:


Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Teddy and Angel Sammy

Today's letter is
Z...

Zombies are scary
Their legs are hairy
Their eyes are glarey

When this kitty sees one, she scurries
to find a hiding place in a hurry
and hopes her mom won't worry!!



Alas we have reached the last letter
Learning to rhyme has made us better! 
We thank Angel Sammy and Teddy his brudder
 Pam their mudder for hosting this fun event
and putting up with us no matter the letter!

Tuesday scary tale


When mom fired up the 'puter the other day, she about fell out of her chair.
Thank goodness I was sitting far away!!

This was the screen saver that popped up!?
I must admit to having some mouth envy.  Just think of all the fishes 
he can hold in his mouth!!
