Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday. Still way too cold around here and we had a bit of snow too. But we are going to look at a few things we didn't get a chance to let you know about earlier.

Remember mum was going to try to grow gourds? Back in July we showed that the vines were growing furry nice on the side of the house, back here. But we never got any gourds at all! The vines would grow and some flowers showed up, but nothing.

Now she also had some vines in the front and all but one of those died off. Finally as mum inspected it late in the year, she found gourds.  Tiny gourds, no bigger than her thumb. 

 She did some reading and these plants have boy flowers and girl flowers. The girl flowers bloom with the baby gourd there, like you see above. But they don't grow big without boy flowers. Mum says she doesn't amember seeing boy flowers at the time time as she had girl flowers. So no big gourds. We didn't even find and see these flowers until late in TockTober, so they wouldn't have even had time to grow up!

Mum will try again next year. Maybe she will have better luck.

Stay warm, love from Virginger and Glimmer.

Now You See It, Now You Don't

Mr Hawk paid us a visit on Sunday. Looking for a smaller fevver for lunch. At least what we saw he didn't get a fevver.

You may want to biggify these (clicky on the picture), the first few the hawk is facing away, then he turns and viola, you can barely see him.

Now You See Him.

 Now You Don't!

 Then a woofie came by and skeered him away. Off to find his lunch somewhere else.

Mini ManCat Monday

The naming of cats is a difficult matter. It isn't just one of your holiday games. You may think at first I'm mad as a hatter. When I tell you a cat must have three different names... - T.S. Eliot

HiYa, Ducky here. Yeah, mum does call us stuff other than our official names, but I think we both have more than three names!

We had a nice weekend. We did wake up to white stuff on the ground on Sunday, but it wasn't deep. Mum went outside to clear it off the drive and patio. Otherwise she didn't go anywhere. Heard on the moving picture box that there were lots of accy-dents Caturday night.

Mum has started working on a new blankie this last weekend and she worked on it more while she watched feetsball. Says it helps keep her lap warm in the winter. 
Isn't that what I am for mum? Help you keep your lap warm? OK, I guess I will keep your neck warm.

Feetsball Report

The Pack - They won. There was lots of leaping at Lambeau, both by the offense and defense. For the first time in the storied history of the franchise of The Green Bay Packers, they have scored 50 or more points in two consecutive games! Wowza. Next week we get to play the ViQueens. 

The Broncos - travelled to St Louis and got rammed! They lost but Mr Peyton did throw another TD.

Have a good week gang.

Happy Caturday one and all.

Strange happenings here this AM. A guy is walking on our roof! Mum says he is here to clean out the leaves from the gutters.

 Firsted he climbed on his little ladder the threw out the worst of the leaves, then later he was up walking around on top of our heads. Even mum thought it was a bit weird.
We may have white stuff on the ground by tomorrow morning! Ack!

So that is our excitement for the day. Derby is not amused!
Have a grate weekend!

Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Viringer and Glimmer.

Well, it has gotten really cold around here. Both of us are glad we are inside for now. A few snowflakes in the air too, but not yet sticking to the ground.

Mum did a good job this past weekend. She finished up outside by mowing the lawn and chewing up the last leaves and getting the outside stuff that needs to be inside for the winter, inside. 
 So the back yard all tucked in and looking good. Mum did add a new wrinkle to the back yard and put this thing inside the fevver bath. The plugged it in the power thing. It keeps the ice away so the fevvers have a place to get a drink. Maybe mum should put vodka in it instead of water! Then see how those fevvers fly!

 Just a few things that don't want to give up their leaves, the tree across the street and our four-sith-ia plant too. Mum says not to worry, those leaves will not be a problem.
 Thanks for visiting, stay warms. Love, Virginger and Glimmer.

Veteran's Day

Today we say thank you to all those who have served in the military. We especially remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so we are free.

In remembrance.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
      Between the crosses, row on row,
   That mark our place; and in the sky
   The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
   Loved and were loved, and now we lie
         In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
   The torch; be yours to hold it high.
   If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
         In Flanders fields.

ManCat Monday

We need a word for all the kitty-prints that are all over my windshield because the cats like to lie on my hood when the car is still warm. - Megan Coughlin

Mum won't let us out in the metal monster room, so we won't be putting our paw prints on mum's travelling monster.

Mum went out on Caturday night for her racy car group. They had the dinner in a car museum, which was sort of fitting. Mum took a few pics, but not many. Most of the cars were older than she was!
They even have old horse buggies, some really old cars and even an old John Deere tractor.
 We woke up on Sunday to see some of the white stuff on the house roofs, it all melted off quick.
 Mum went out and did chores right after lunch. She mowed the lawn and also crunched up the last of the leaves. Put away the outside chairs and all too. Says she is done with chores outside for now.
 What did we do during this time, what we normally would be doing,keeping our backsides warm on the heaty spot!

Feetsball Report

The Pack - Played Da Bears on Sunday night. First half, The Pack pitched a shutout. It was 42-0, seven possession, six touchdowns, all by passing. Second half, QB ARodg played for a bit, but then they let him rest. Result, The Pack beats Da Bears.

The Broncos - won again beating down the Raiders. Mr Peyton had 5 more TD's.

 Last day to sign up for Secret Paws, you know you wanna do this!

Mum is out to do the last of her outside chores. We will stay inside and do this. 
We did fevver watch this morning for a bit and help mum count. It is Project Feeder Watch season.

We help the bird beans find out about birds and where they are in winter and how many of them little fevver things are around. Join in if you want we are catizen scientists!

Happy weekend.

Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Viringer and Glimmer.

Well the outside season is coming to an end. Mum has done good getting the chores done outside. The garden cut down and hauled to the compost place. The leaves are piled up in the street waiting for the guys to haul them away. Mum just needs to mow the lawn, one last time!
Here is the piles and piles of leaves from the yard. They have yet to come by this year to pick any of it up. They came yesterday and hauled all of this away. Mum is so happy they are gone. Now they can't blow back into the yard. 
Our big tree, finally bare! This is about as early the leaves are all down that mum amembers.
 Mum says we can come inside the metal monster room now. Since it is cold out she wants us to be all nice and snugglely. Both of us are pretty hardy, so no issues with the cold or snow when it comes. But it is nice to be inside.

Love Virginger and Glimmer.

We Voted

Don't forgets to go sign up for Secret Paws for this year. Deadline is this Caturday!

Well mum voted yesterday. Which means all of the stupid ads on the moving picture box are gone until the next 'lection. Mum didn't get many phone calls this year cuz she has a new set up with robocalls. Rings once, they are gone. Only got one that said to vote like a Christian. Huh? Your version of Christian or ours?

Maybe I can talk Chey into another run for the White House! What do you think gang?

The Cat World Domination Party!
