Critters abound

Good morning and welcome to





I love hanging out with my human Mom!




I seldom post about our cat, Kitty and yet she's making another brief appearance this week as well.  Lucky for her that she was such a super-hero-kitty last week, because this week-
she's pretty much driving us all a bit bananas!

Apparently for her, it's mating season again. Go figure, the weather warms up and so does she.  As you'll notice in the next photo, she's everywhere we are. Yep, she just climbed across my keyboard!


Rub, rub, rub, rub, RUB!





OOps.

Just saw this adorable idea on Facebook this morning.



You know it's gonna be hard to eat even one of them.



So while some/114.4 million (or darn close) viewers just in the United States
were watching the Super Bowl this year,



Some adventurous, free-spirited souls went fishing instead.



"Traditional angling is to escape the noise and one-
upmanship of modern angling in favor 
of something simple and beautiful."
Fennel Hudson



Okay, a quick hello from our blind pup Allie. It just goes to show even though she's been blind (almost her entire life) it rarely shows.  We love you Allie.



She may not see, but thoughts always circle, through her head.

Marcus Aurelius


Never forget, we're as happy as we feel inside!

Won't you smile along with me too?!

I might have to make those eggs this weekend. I just bought a wonderful bunch of fresh dill at Horrocks and it is so good! I've been thinking egg salad for a long time -- but maybe these chick eggs are better!

Keep showing more Kitty! She's beautiful!

Love the stuffed eggs! And then Humpty-Dumpty! Wonderfully large catfish! Cute dogs and cat!
Have a great week-end!

Your post brought a smile to my face, your pets are so adorable! Proud puppy in the seat, cool cat stretching across your keyboard and your good old faithful friend guarding the couch, totally lovable.

That's some fish, a few meals out of that one without a doubt!

Wishing you a wonderful Saturday Karen... now back to my edits! The fun never ends in my world! lol Cheers.

Oh, you always make me smile, my friend. I love your pictures and your quotes. You do this so well, and you inspire me. Don't be surprised if I start to do this kind of post occasionally...if I ever get my act together.
Bill is changing jobs. Still trucking, but more home time including weekends and most holidays. Maybe we can get back to normal, somewhat.
Hugs.
P.S. Where was that huge fish caught? Bill is curious.

Alexia said...

Oh, your cat is beautiful! Do you breed from her? I guess so, or she would be neutered. Great dog pics too.

Ida said...

Super fun post. Both your dogs are quite handsome and that kitty, so precious. Enjoyed the fun deviled eggs & the egg statue too. That was one big fish.
