Bacon Saturday and Photo hunt

Friends it has been a rare week...OMCs


I got turkey not pork bacon..BUT mom is stingy  it was served sparingly. She gave me 1/2 of a half of a whole piece.
For those of you fraction challenged...
that is 1/4 piece. Exhibit one below
demonstrates:  1/2 piece not crumbled,
crumbles are 1/4 which I had to share!!

 I inquired as to the fate of the other 1/4 piece
I was told I'd get that later.  I will say she was
as good as her word I did get the other piece
much later.

SATURDAY PHOTO HUNT: 

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO FIND THE LIST OF SATURDAY PHOTO HUNT WORDS
TODAY'S WORD IS

WHEEL:

round object turning on a axis

Maybe some of you remember the children's

 song, 

"The Wheels on the Bus go round and round".

This week the wheels on Dad's car,which is 

4 wheel drive but not on ice, have

 been sitting on about 1/4" of ice due to a sleet 

event on Tuesday night



these wheels have not been going, 

'round and round'.

Friday: Thanks to Nellie's Mom


Well lo and behold the old gray mare has done it again
not only did we hit our 2,000th post last week
Mom also ordered the 9th volume of my Blog
from Blog2Print click here for info on printing

Please click on the collage to enlarge

I would like to draw your attention to the largest photo which shows the front cover of vol 9.  We would like to thank the Mom of
this beautiful photo for us.  
 It was sent to us to use as a new header for our blog.....
Nellie's mom sent explicit written instructions (with pictures) for mom telling Mom how to put on our blog as a header.  
Alas, mom was not able to successfully accomplish this task but we sure do love it on the cover of volume 9.

AMAZING Tuesday Tale: SURPRISE

Last week mom received the best surprise from our
friend Ramona aka the best mosaic artist we know.
http://brokenbitmosaics.blogspot.com



Here is a close up of each
Mom loves the lady in the red hat.
Mom had already had a hook on the wall.  She 
is going to get Dad to hang the other one beside this one.
 Ramona's note said
I know you love red!!!! YES I DO Ramona


A little over a year ago Mom asked Ramona to 
create a mosaic of me, with Dogwood blooms and of course
a hummingbird...As you can see, Ramona
nailed all 3 request.  We are still in awe of this gorgeous
creation

THANK YOU RAMONA FOR BEING
OUR FRIEND AND SHARING YOUR TALENT WITH US.
HUGS MADI AND MOM

Dumpster photo from Mayorz Murphy and Stanley and I thank them because their inquiry as to JUST when
mom expected to finish her punishment made her get busy!!!


 She was able to find a clean box that fit my tush to a T!!
THANK YOU TO ALL MY FRIENDS WHO KEPT
ASKING WHEN SHE WAS GOING TO DO A DUMPSTER DIVE...NAGGING PAYS OFF.

BREAKING NEWS!!!!
A MYSTERY

What in the world is this?
Hopscotch or a sinister plan by the City?
When the peeps went to the grocery store on Thursday
the street was normal.  When mom  went out to get the mail,
she found all this mess. It goes almost all the way 
down the cul-de-sac!!

My friends at Trout Talkin' Tabbies  are always
MOLing at mom's 'chalk' writing on my photos
Kitties I'm thinking Mom had a chalk party on our
street!! MOL MOL

Obviously it is something the city is going to do and we are sure we won't like it.  All the peeps have to say is they better not
mess up our new driveway!!
