SATURDAY PHOTO HUNT

SATURDAY PHOTO HUNT: 

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

B R U S H: 
n. instrument with bristles


I absolutely adore being brushed....and mom is purrty good at it too

This is my brush every night just before bedtime
I sashay into the family room....park my tush
in front of the table by the couch.  Mom keeps my
brush in the drawer.  She jumps up lickety split finally
rouses from her comfy seat to give me my nightly brushing.
 Many of you will remember Angel Remington, the gentle Newfie, who addressed everyone as
'My friend'!
His mom, Beth, and my mom were buddies. Beth was an expert at spinning yard.  In 2010 Beth asked mom to start saving my furs after she brushed me.  Mom sent her a zip lock bag of my furs every few months.  After about 9 months of steady brushing, I thought I would be furlessBeth told mom she had enough of my furs to spin.
She added some of Remington's longer furs to my fur to make it spin better.  Beth spun 70 yards of our furs to send to mom.
The blue arrows mark the rows of our spun furs.
Mom had enough to put one row of our furs in a mini
afghan she made for me and two rows of our furs in a 
scarf she made for herself.
The afghan and scarf are very much treasured keepsakes.

Rem here's looking at the moon 
My friend

B R U S H: 
 a brief encounter
 We lost huge limbs out of 3 pine trees during the storm
on Wednesday night.  All 3 tree are loop sided and will need to come down.

Thanks to Jakey Dory's Bro giving a lesson in Pizap....
I was able to go out into the snow....

This was mom's first attempt at adding me to different scenes.
I hope she takes me to the beach next time so I can go fishing.

The photo below is my snow scene with enhancements from my buddy
We both thought this looked like a scene from Dr. Zhivago
minus the 21st century conveniences.

FFHT

FIRST OF ALL THANK YOU ALL WHO PUT UP A PSA 
ABOUT MADI AND MOM YESTERDAY.
DUE TO A HEAVY, WET, AND SLOOPY SNOW
THAT PILED UP ON ALL THE PINE TREES
IN OUR AREA WE LOST POWER AT 4:00AM ON THURSDAY MORNING.  IT FINALLY CAME BACK ON AT 7:00PM THURSDAY NIGHT.  HOPEFULLY TODAY WE CAN
CATCH UP WITH EVERYONE.  I MISSED YOU ALL, BUT I THINK MOM 
MISSED HER COFFEE MORE. MOL MOL

NOW FOR THE REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAM

WOOHOO IT IS 


TODAY'S CATCH PHRASE IS....
"It was so much better than I could ever have imagined"

Last week was a very very cold week here in Dixie.  Dad found me napping here.

He reminded me I was a cat :gasp: and that most
cats would be under the spread on a cold day not on top of it.  Well Dad is a smart guy so I decided to take his suggestion



My body double, Chatty Catty, will demonstrate my route.  I stand at the edge of the spread...then lickety split I'm cozy and warm here the orange circle outlines my snuggly spot.
Later I told Dad thanks for the suggestion that
being cozy and snuggly under the covers was the place to be.

Warm Wednesday Dreamin'

Good morning friends....this is the 2nd week in a row we have had snow on Tuesday (and more coming in tonight and Thursday morning)!!! 
I'm coming to you today from Isle of Madi somewhere
Down Under in Oz


Yesterday morning they said we'd have a dusting of snow...well the dusting continued for nearly 3". At this update it is now 4pm on Tuesday afternoon it has been snowing since 6:30 am!!
IN DIXIE!!
If our weather geeks worked in Blogville, I bet the Mayorz would kick them in to the Common Court of Fleas for excessive fibbing!!
I think this is a case for  Ernie the Attorney

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


While I'm away on my private Island warming my tush...here is a little bit of surprise info for
WOMEN of all Species!!!

From the Mom of Benji and Lassie!!! 

P.S.   OK Girl'z listen up.  (Guys can't read this part.) 

This is Lassie and Benji's Mom taking over their blog.    The guys are planning to go "Bowling in the Blogville Ambulance" on March 23, 2015.  You girls can't let the guys get away with this "Guy'z Night Out" thing.   Girl'z are going to crash the Bowling Party.   Just don't let the boys find out about the Party Crashing! Send your photo (of your face for a Team Photo)  by FRIDAY, MARCH 13th  to me at   teresius1 (at) aol (dot) com.   (note, that's a number one in my email address.)   Also, e-mail me your name so I can write it on the Bowling Score Sheet, something like this...Girl'z Name:____________.  Oh and if you don't want to bowl and you just want to sit on the bench and cheer the bowlers along -- let me know too.  Remember, this is a secret!    Don't tell the guys you are going to Crash the Bowling Party!  

Summary:   Send pictures (of your face) to   teresius1 (at) aol (dot) com.   Note: that is a (number one)  #1 in the e-mail address (not a lowercase "L").   Send photos by Friday the 13th!   Tell us your name.  And if you don't want to bowl -- let us know if you are just sitting on the bench.
