Friday Friends: A thank you....

On Monday Sweet William announced who guessed correctly what his Lee was dressing up 
as on Halloween.  If you missed it click here, to run over to Sw. Williams
Dad was tickled pink when he learned that he hat won!!  The questions were all about art and
well Dad loves art.  Will's Lee was dressing up as Leonardo da Vinci
Dad won a darling fridge magnet that looks just like handsome Wills

Wills you are in good company with  the Geeko, the Marine Teddy bear and my 
cat magnets.  

Low and behold I GOT A SURPRISE too
the most delish Iams Salmon treats in the world...

Wills there was one more that fell out of mom's hand right where my nose is...
I ate it lickety split before more could snap a pic.

Dad and I thank you 87 tons!
Hugs Madi

Blogville Halloween Maze Tales

ARTY AND CHRIS, MAYORAL Candydates and Assistants Mabel and Oreo,  it is I, Madi (mayor emeritus and first feline female mayor), here to share my years of experience and give you the best guidance to get you out of the......

 BLOGVILLE HALLOWEEN MAZE
1.keep your noses to the ground so that you always have a scent trail
where others might have been.  
2. Never enter a maze without a buddy and most of all never enter a  maze without a head lantern....literally(that dark blob is my tush)...see below..



3. Always listen to the voices you hear in the maze especially when you get to the
dark areas.  As these voices become louder, that will be your clue to 
TURN AROUND AND RUN...'cause SOMEBUDDY ran into a dead end!!!


Breaking news:  While I have your undivided attention and before you run too far away.......



4.  Finally,  this is very very important...when you are feeling lost and alone never fear
in an instant you will see stars and happy pumpkin heads and smiling kitties
and THE DOOR OUT OF THE MAZE WILL BE RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU!!!
Oreo that was so much fun...I can't believe we reached the door before Arty and Christmas
Mabel I bet those two started talking pawlitics and forgot what time it was or what they were supposed to do!!

Dearest friends I do hope my years and years of feline wisdom will help you navigate the maze and REMEMBER TO HAVE FUN!!

Maze adventure to be continued tomorrow on the
Idaho Pug Blog be sure to tune in they have a special guest!

Mom's new permanent dental bridge was ready yesterday.  She is tickled 
pink to have all that behind her.  The temporary bridge came out quickly.  The new one was fitted and a few adjustments made.  She was in the dental chair about 1 hour.
NOW she has a fullyfunctioning mouth...actually teeth...her mouth was working okey dokey fine.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday on WEDNESDAY

TODAY, I AM ONE DAY EARLY, JOINING MY BUDDY SAMMY FROM 
We have a corny date tomorrow

Today's post is brought to you by the letter 
U

Uh Oh it is Thoroughly Poetic Thursday on Wednesday
Since there are no parts of my body that start with a U,
Our minds were askew and we knew not what to do
We discussed Umbrellas but that was a no go
 'cause rain makes Sammy an unhappy fella

We found ourselves in quite a dilemma.
Ahhh haaa I know Ussie
  
Or perhaps  something on  U tube? 
Unique we are not, 
For sure our poetry is messier than squirrel snot
So Sammy we failed at the letter U 
But dear friend this tune I am playing on the ukulele 

truly comes straight from my heart to U!!

THE END!!!!!!
aPAWs, aPAWs
Thank U
