THIS MOMENT, SEE BEAUTIFUL

Power of the Prayer 
Chef Sasha's sweet Daddy is having surgery today at 12:30.  Sasha and her family have asked
for the POTP from all of their furiends.
Sasha's mom is reading her blog and ours at the hospital.  So let's put our paws/hands/claws together to send our healing thoughts to them.
Click HERE to visit Sasha's blog to leave a message.

**************************

Today is the 2nd Friday in May and that means it is time to join

It is said beauty is in the eyes of the beholder...
we just have to look around us.
In early April my peeps went to the beautiful
North Carolina coast to visit Sis and BIL.
We are sharing some beauty and some funny.
Funny because Mom thinks laughter is 
beautiful

I guess the meaning is up to each one reading it.
  It was on the dock in Beaufort.  Mom LOL'd  

Much anticipated new shop on the boardwalk in
Morehead City.  BIL is an excellent chef so we 
expect he will be going here a lot
Now for some fun pictures of boats and their names



The itty bitty dot in the middle of the picture is a 
man on what looks like part bicycle part surfboard
paddling like crazy

Big Rock monument honoring all ships
who have want the contest

THE ENTIRE VISIT WAS FULL
OF BEAUTY BUT 
THIS MOMENT, we SAW BEAUTIFUL


Our sweet daughter and son-in-law/
aka Madi's SIS and BIL
strolling down the boardwalk in Beaufort


Just 5 months ago he could not walk.
We have been blessed with a true miracle.
Each moment of life is beautiful never
ever forget it! Hold those you love close
and savor each beautiful moment spent with them.

KEEPING IT REAL: Pip's Way

Extra Extra Angel Pip has a book
read all about it  HERE 

Remember 20% of the combined sales of the book and e-book (for I-Pad) will be donated to Red Door Animal Shelter, where Pip was found.


From the very first time I laid my cat eyes on on 
Pip I was smitten by his smile and the Fancy Feast I smelled on his breath.
We became fast friends and Dancing Partners.  Let me just say
that man had moves....and rhythm.



Mom order us a copy lickety split.  It arrived 
yesterday.  We are in awe of the quality of the 
book, pictures and most of all 
the 
LOVE AND DEVOTION IN THIS BOOK
 Ms. Kristin aka Pip's assistant
bravo, bravo and standing ovation from 
us!!
 Oh my Cats Pip and I both loved
Fancy Feast.  He sent me a special can of
Chicken Feast in case I have a snack attack while reading his book.

Here are a few of my favorite pages from the book
Friendship is golden, life smells better when you have someone
to share it with.

All you need is love....and a dog.....
Pip was rescued from an animal shelter he was as devoted

to his family as were they to him.

Real dogs wear bow ties



What a beautiful book in honor and memory of 
my very first beau.  Most of all what a 
wonderful treasure chest full of
wisdom for his family, especially sweet Madeline, whom he helped raise....
and all his friends all over the world.
Remember......


Thank you Pip's family for sharing him with us
through his blog and this book.
Hugs
Madi your best feline friend furever and eternity.

MY Tuesday Tail Tale

My Tail 
from
I Could Pee on This by Francesco Marciuliano

If my tail is curved then I'm at ease
If it is tucked then do what you please

If it twitches then get out of my sight
(I'm watching a squirrel on my deck)
If it is to one side then I'm free for the night
(if you can wake me up)
If it is fluffed then I simply can't deal

If it swishes (and my fangs are showing) then it is about to get real
If it is erect then for you I give thanks


If it grabs food then you're petting a monkey
You should probably walk away


It there is no tail then I'm a Manx
