CALLING ALL GYMNASTS!!!!!

I AM JUMPING FOR JOY, IT IS FINALLY TIME



TO INVITE ALL WHO WOULD LIKE TO PAWTICIPATE GYMNASTICS EVENT,WHICH MOM AND I ARE HOSTING. 


Today's post is to give you a little information on on the festivities.
FIRST OF ALL THE RULES ARE SIMPLE

HAVE FUN!!! Everyone is a winner

To help you decide which event you'd like to pawticipate gymnastic
 events include:Vault,Uneven bars,Floor Exercises,Parallel bars, Horizontal Bars, Still rings, Pommel horse, Balance Beam.
Mom and I have a few pictures to help you with make up your mind.

Still Rings: Since the competitors have no thumbs obviously
you will not want to hang in the air but we are sure you can come up with a very fun way to use rings!! Like wearing on on your head or tail
 Remember to
HAVE FUN

Balance Beams:  Many of you will not have a beam per say but
anytime you walk across anything that requires balance  you are on a balance beam.  Remember to 
HAVE FUN
Pommel Horse:  This event might require some thinking and could be a great event for small K9's and cats...We are thinking
maybe you can get on your belly and scoot under the handles MOL
If you don't have a Pommel horse sitting around your house,....MOL.....make something up!!  Remember to 
HAVE FUN
 Uneven bars:  OMD this might just be the most purrfect event for anyone who is very agile at jumping over things.  
Most of us will not have a contraption like this but any time you are jumping from say the bed to the floor, over your peeps legs,
or just plain jumping for joy that can be your uneven bars.
Remember to 
HAVE FUN
LAST BUT NOT LEAST AND MAYBE THE BEST EVENT FOR EVERYONE.....
FLOOR EXERCISES:   
We all have floors, we use them everyday and we perform all kinds of antics on them.  Such as a few of my favorites:
1. Sun puddle sitting
 2. Upside down twisted laser eye staring
 3. Reading  a good book

 So if you don't feel qualified to pawticipate in any of the other events this one is FOR YOU!!
Remember
HAVE FUN

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PAWTICIPATE IN THIS EVENT,
I will be accepting submissions beginning 

July 9th through 11:59pm on July 18.

 PLEASE EMAIL ME YOUR PICTURE, WITH YOUR NAME, YOUR EVENT, AND YOUR BLOG ADDRESS

Thursday Theme Song: by Stevie Wonder


Mom and I thank Hootin Anni for hosting this fun meme


Today's featured song is "Isn't She Lovely" by the one and only
Stevie Wonder.  This song was written after the birth of his daughter, Aisha.
Once again words in red have been changed by Mom.  Please click on the below video to listen to the song while you scroll through our post.


Isn't she lovely
Isn't her pink tongue adorable


Isn't she wonderful
with her little curled paws and gray chin looking at me
with her green eyes 

Isn't she precious
and at 3 months and 1 day old the day we brought her home

I never thought, through all the early kitten trials and tribulations, when
she tried to rattle every nerve in our bodies with all her antics
she turned into one as lovely as this
But isn't she lovely
Isn't she pretty
Truly kissed by angels
(Mom says freckles are where angels have kissed me...evidently only two though, MOL)

Boy are we happy
We have been heaven blessed
to have been chosen by Madi to be her peeps
But isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Doing one of her favorite things sitting on ANYTHING as long 
as there is another layer under her tush.
Isn't she precious, she makes us smile every day.
Life and love are the same
the life of Madison whom we fondly call 
Madi

THE REST OF THE STORY....

Have I mentioned I have competition for Mom's undivided attention? Well I do and it is her iPad. 
So loves it so much she made it a jacket.  YES that is her iPad in its gray jacket.  She also made a pouch on the front to hold the cable.
YES you do detect a tad of jealousy because it is always attached to Mom's hand.

BiP(before iPad) Mom's hand was always available to stroke my head.
  Each morning, while eating a bowl Cheerios,  she plays Words with Friends.  Over the last few weeks, I've decided the iPad can stay.  As soon as she sits down to eat, I come running to join her. I love to watch the letter tiles move around on the game and I love the bing.  These pictures were taken just after we finished a game of Words with Friends.  As soon as Mom puts her 
iPad in its jacket, 
it becomes my
Thinkpad

MADI MEWS & Engagement News

Just the other day, as I was watching birds contemplating Einstein's 
theory on relativity, when out of nowhere a good old fashion Southern thunderstorm starting a brewin'.  

It was time for me to seek shelter and safety.  I've found the best place to ride out a storm is on the steps.  WHY?
If the creek starts to rise, I can head up the stairs.
If the thunder gets too loud, I'll get under the bed
I really do not like thunder!!

Madi giving her best scaredy cat look


WHERE DO YOU ALL GO WHEN THE HEAVENS OPEN
AND THE THUNDER STARTS TO RUMBLE?

I'M HAPPY TO REPORT THE THUNDER STOPPED JUST IN TIME FOR ME TO HOP ON OVER TO ALEX'S BLOG TO CELEBRATE HIS RECENT ENGAGEMENT TO GRACIE.
Everyone who is attending was asked to send a virtual gift 
and also make a toast to the happy couple.  Let me just say
it should be an fan-tab-ulous party!!

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIRTUAL GIFTS
AND READ THE VERY 'TOUCHING' TOASTS!!
