MOM......

SAYS MY EYES ARE THE WINDOWS TO MY SOUL.....
*********
This has been a week of 2 legged and 4 legged surgeries,
lots of our 4 legged friends have been having the sickies and
yesterday we were very sad to learn that the very precious Dad of one of our  human blogging friends passed away.  Mom and I would like to let them all know we are thinking of
them and purring very hard that they heal from their surgeries
and their broken hearts feel better very soon.
 SHE SAYS THE SWEETEST THINGS TO ME. 
THIS WAS TAKEN ON LAST SATURDAY, JUST AFTER A VERY NICE NOGGIN' MASSAGE WHICH I LIKE BETTER THAN A TUMMY MASSAGE.
SINCERELY,
ME AND MY EYES

Thursday Theme Song: JUST FOR DAD!!!

Today's Thursday Theme Song, Engine, Engine #9 by Roger Miller, is dedicated to Dad.  We thank
Hootin' Anni for sponsoring this fun meme.

All of the pictures were taken at a Live Steam event in Apex, NC.  It is held each year in April and October.
The April meet is always right around Dad's Birthday.  Dad is about to drive an engine in the 2nd picture.
Engine, Engine #9, coming down the railroad line
How much further back did she get off?
Old brown suitcase that she carried, I've looked for it everywhere
It just ain't here among the rest and I'm a little upset.
Yes, tell me Engine, engine #9, coming down the railroad line,
I know she got on in Baltimore
A 110 miles ain't much distance
But it sure do make a difference, I don't think she loves me any more.
I warned her of the dangers, don't talk to strangers
If by chance she find a new romance, warmer lips to kiss her
Arms to hold her tighter, stirring new fires inside her
How I wish that it was me instead of he that stands beside her.....

 This picture is of several different train whistles....and the all are in working order and LOUD
The shed is where all the wood for the tracks and train trestles are cut with a big saw.
The variety of trains at the meet is amazing....such workmanship and devotion goes
 into making and caring for them. 

This is Dad on the right and  his friend Mr. Lee tending to his engine
Mr. Lee machined nearly all of what you see.
One of the many train trestles built by all of the members of the Live Steam Club.
Absolutely amazing.
And last but not least here is Mom just before one of Dad's friend's
'let' her drive his engine....

 Now to hear this very lively and fun song please click on this video below

HOW I SPENT MY GOTCHA DAY.....

In my humble opinion, one should spend one's Gotcha Day doing as one pleases...BUTT evidently Mom doesn't share that opinion.
Last Wednesday, May 11, my 9th Gotcha Day, Mom came home bellowing, 'Madi look what I have for you'!
I was napping and not the least bit interested in
THE CUBE....

 However, after I got my nap 2 hours later I decided to check it out.
I gave it a sniff but decided I was hungry so I yowled politely
asked mom to feed me. The cube followed me downstairs!!
 After I had proper nourshiment, I gave it another sniff  PERIOD!!
It sat in this very spot until....
 Two days later (Friday May 13) Mom decided it was time to show me just how much I liked it.  Yes she tricked me by throwing in my fav tote toy.....
 I went in half way......
Came out in the blink of an eye, gave it one last look....

 
 I think this picture pretty much speaks volumes.....
I'm not at all impressed.  Does anyone know how to post things for sale on  eBAY?
Thanks Madi
