SATURDAY THOUGHTS

Sometimes life is all about what you

SEE

So keep your eyes open wide and your high beams turned on.

 Sometimes life is all about what you
HEAR
So be sure to keep your ears clean and tuned into your surroundings

Most of all life is about GOOD FRIENDS...
Mom and I feel fortunate to have you all as our friends.
My good friend
Sweet Pea (Mr. Pip's feline brother) left for the Rainbow Bridge on Wednesday.  Sweet Pea was a very handsome 20 year old kitty who was well loved by a very special family who dedicated many hours to abandoned animals in their city. 
We send hugs to his family.

THURSDAY THEME SONG: Do wah Diddy....

Mom and I thank Hootin Anni for sponsoring

Mom is a child of the '60s and absolutely loved all the boy bands who came out of England during that time.
Today's song is by Manfred Mann.  We  hope you enjoy it.

There she was juat a-walkin' down the street
Snappin' her fingers and shufflin' her feet
singin' "Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do"
 She looked good, she looked fine and I nearly lost my mind.
 Before I knew it she was walkin' next to me singin' Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do
Holdin' my hand just as natural as can be, singin' do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do
 Now we're together nearly every single day singin' do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do
Well I'm hers and she is mine  and.......
Mom and I hope you will click on the video below to hear
Manfred Mann and The Manfred's sing this fun song.
Thanks for stopping by

WOW WEDNESDAY

I bet you are all asking what is "WOW" about Wednesday.
Well I'll tell you.  I'm sharing (yes, sharing) my blog today
with my most handsome nephew..........


HARLEY,
MY HUMAN SISTER'S CORNISH REX KITTY


Mom here:  Harley is undoubtedly the sweetest, most tolerant,
 kitty we know. Over the last two years he has been plagued by several chronic health issues (IBD and diabetes).  However, to see him you'd never know it.  He has the best peeps (my daughter and son in law) in the world who take very good care of him. His favorite place to be is in my daughter's lap or on top of laundry just out of the dryer.  Harley loves everybody and everybody loves Harley.
I recently rec'd this picture of him.  Madi and I just had to share it with our friends.

IF I MEOW LOUD ENOUGH.....

I GET MY WAY!!!
REMEMBER LAST WEEK I WAS SEQUESTERED
IN THE COMPUTER ROOM WHILE OUR EXTERIOR DOORS
WERE PAINTED AND DRYING FOR 3 HOURS?  WELL MOM STAYED WITH ME  IN THE ROOM FOR 2 HOURS THEN SHE LEFT ME ALONE AND I WAS NOT HAPPY.


  MOM GOT MY 20 LB. JAR OF LITTER TO PUT AT THE DOOR SO I COULD NOT PULL IT OPEN THEN SHE SAT RIGHT THERE ON THE 2ND STEP FOR THE LAST HOUR READING A BOOK AND TALKING TO ME WHILE I SAT ON THE RUG...EVERY SO OFTEN I WOULD GET UP TO SNIFF THE SMELLS COMING IN THE HOUSE.


MOL
I HAVE HER TRAINED WELL!!!

PS:  Return of Nicki, aka Mom's S8100 Nikon, thankfully she still had her 3200 Coolpix to use during Nicki's absence.   It was her first digital and takes really good pictures.

SHE'S BACK FROM ARIZONA.....

....IS WHAT MOM SO RUDELY BELLOWED SATURDAY AFTERNOON AWAKENING  ME FROM A VERY GOOD NAP ON A COOL RAINY AFTERNOON.


SINCE I WAS ALREADY AWAKE, I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE WISE TO HUMOR MOM SO I  STRETCHED AND ASKED 3 QURESTIONS,
1.WHO WAS BACK FROM ARIZONA? 
2.WHY SHE WENT , 2A. WHY WAS I NOT INVITED  TO GO WITH HER?
3.MOST IMPORTANTLY DID SHE VISIT JACK WHILE SHE WAS IN ARIZONA?

 I RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING ANSWERS:
1. MS. NICKI  (AKA MOM'S 6 MO. OLD S8100 NIKON CAMERA) IS BACK FROM ARIZONA

2. MS NICKI WENT TO ARIZONA BECAUSE MOM CARELESSLY  ACCIDENTALLY DROPPED NICKI ON HER HEAD ON JULY 31, 2011, MAKING NICKI'S LIGHTS GO OUT AND SPLITTING HER NOGGIN' (LITERALLY).  MOM BOUGHT NICKI AT WOLF CAMERA.  THEY SEND ALL THEIR PATIENTS TO ARIZONA.



2A. I WAS NOT INVITED ON THE TRIP BECAUSE MOM WAS TOLD NICKI WAS GOING TO BE GONE FOR 8 WEEKS. 
3.  MOM ASSURED ME NICKI DID NOT VISIT JACK WHILE SHE WAS IN ARIZONA...HOWEVER, MOM TOLD ME IF NICKI HAD NOT RETURNED HOME BY MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19TH, SHE WAS GOING TO ASK JACK TO LOOK FOR NICKI THE NEXT TIME HE TOOK TALL GUY ON A WALK.

GOOD NEWS IS MOM BOUGHT A 1 YEAR REPAIR WARRANTY ON NICKI SO SHE DIDN'T HAVE TO PAY FOR THE REPAIR.  MOM TOLD ME SHE LEARNED HER LESSON AND WILL BE SUPER CAREFUL WITH NICKI BECAUSE SHE MISSED HER.
