Happy New Year

Happy New Year! Well officially as we do this we are still in 2010 but many of you may not see this until it is the new year!

Mum went off to day hunt as usual today but got home a little bit earlier that usual. She came home with a bag full of foods to eat.
A big container of soup that just went into the big cold box. Mum loves their egg drop soup and says it it cheaper than her making it.
Here is the stuff all out on the plate, chickhen, chickhen and more chickhen. Appetizer, lo mein and flied lice!
She got several fortune cookies, this is the one she opened tonigh. She hates hats so trust me it she won't be getting a new hat.

Guess Ducky and I will pop around the blogosphere and find a a party to two to stop in at. On Caturday we will be thinking Roses.
First we will watch the pretty parade with all of the flowers, then later we, well at least mum, will be watching the Rose Bowl game. Whiskerconsin's Bucky Badger will be playing some frogs!

Happy New Year!

Mini ManCat Monday

Cats whiskers are so sensitive, they can find their way through the narrowest crack in a broken heart. Anonymouse

Mum used Grampies little Christmouse tree. It has jingle bells on it for us to play with.

Mum got our Secret Paw prezzie sent out on Caturday Dec 11. Later in the day the man with the long blue shorts left us our package from Sweet Praline
Such a sweet card with Miss Praline on it.
A box with lots of little stuff inside, mum didn't help us unwrap the prezzies right away. Said we needed to wait. Then will all of the stuff with Grampie we didn't get to it until Christmouse Day.
Mine, all mine. Well OK, we can share as there is lots to share. All sorts of toys, nip, special nip toys and some training cards for mum.
Mum put some of the nip in our one nip toy and the one we got. Derby got right at it and bunny kicked and licked it.

I like this little fevver toy. It sticks to the big window and with the heaty spot nearby, it sways in the breeze. Then I attack it. Mum says there will be more prezzies, but something has to come yet from the guy in the long blu shorts. Then we will have Christmouse again, really soon!

Feetsball Report

The Pack - Beat them Giant's today, still has a chance at the playoffs, but that means beating Da Bears next week playing at Lambeau on the frozen tundra. The team looked good today.

Grampa Brett and the ViQueens - not having much luck with the weather guessers. This week they had their game postponed due to snow. I think it would have been fun to watch them play in a blizzard. Maybe not fun for the fans to get to and from the game, but the game itself would have been cool in the snow.

The Colts - Won today out on the left coast against the Raiders.

Merry Christmas

Thanks to all of you who have stopped by with your kind words on Grampie. Mum said it was nice that he was "Home for Christmas" his heavenly home that is. He is now with his loving wife, Mae who has been waiting for him for a furry long time, 23 years, for him to join her.

They sang this song at his funeral, the third verse is particularly good, Grampie has had his second birth.

Hark the herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled"
Joyful, all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With the angelic host proclaim:
"Christ is born in Bethlehem"
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Christ by highest heav'n adored
Christ the everlasting Lord!
Late in time behold Him come
Offspring of a Virgin's womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see
Hail the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with man to dwell
Jesus, our Emmanuel
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings
Ris'n with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, (because he was of the house and lineage of David,) to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. Luke 2: 1-20 (KJV)

Merry Christmas
God Bless You All.

Grampie is Gone

Grampie went to heaven this morning. Mum was told that Puddin' was sitting outside his room so he had a little ginger boy to purr him home.

We will have our paws full with mum so will be offline for a while.

Musical Bed

Derby's turn.
Ducky's turn.

We are keeping warm just fine, last night we were all in the sleepy spot at the same time. Mum woke up and turned over, then Derby left. I had mum all to myself.

ManCat Monday

She is a gray cat, but around her eyes the fur is black, so that she looks a little like those fifteen-year-olds who believe that being Cleopatra is mostly a matter of mascara. - Jessamyn West

Neither Ducky or I have darkly trimmed eyes. Some cats do, even some mancats.

We had rain, some snow, lots of wind and furry cold now. Mum got what little snow we had off the end of the driveway before the plowed stuff froze. Then she came inside to stay warm, watch fevvers and feetsball with us. Ducky helped to keep mum warm by sitting on her legs. Sammy and Andy asked for winter pictures, here are a few from Sunday, they don't get much snow down in San Antonio.
Out the back looking towards the fevver feeders.
Out the kitchen windows towards the neighbors house.

Our Secret Paw arrived too, from Sweet Praline, more later. Mum opened the box for us, but did not help us open the actual prezzies yet.

Feetsball Report

The Pack - losted to those Lion guys from the Mitten state. Was a strange, low scoring game. Plus the QB ARodg bonked his head on the ground and didn't play the last half of the game. Mum says it is not likely for the playoffs for the team.

Grampa Brett and the ViQueens - will now be playing on Monday evening in Detroit against the Giants. The weather messed things up for them first, then the roof on the stadium broked. You can go here to see video from inside during the collapse. Mum thought it was kinda cool. Plus towards the beginning she thinks she sees beans running along the far sidelines. Probably to get somewhere safe.

The Colts - played last Thursday and won. No drama as far as we know.

Saturday, December 11, 2010


We sent mum out shopping yesterday for our Secret Paw items. She did a good job on the shopping, then was so efficient putting the box together, she didn't get our purrsonal message inside. Oh well.... Hope the recipient likes it.
Mum also took off with her furiends Miss Jane and Miss Lynn. She came home with AlPacka socks, fudge and an ornament for her Secret Paw exchange at work. They had a good day to drive around.

Mum got her package with the tippy straps for the big picture box, now she has to get it hooked up. Maybe later today after she comes back from visiting with Grampie.
We just found out that Rocky went off to The Bridge, but not after giving his family cooties. Way to go Rocky, Farewell, have fun at The Bridge.
Purr for Bugsy, he has GI troubles, those are never fun. Purrs for him too.
We is just chillin', watching fevvers out the windows and waiting for the snow to start falling from the sky. We won't get a lot, but it is supposed to get furry cold next week again.

Fevver Identification

Remember the fevver box where Grampie lives? Well mum found out what kind of fevvers.
Seems she walked past this, who knows how many times, before she actually noticed it and read it! Duh mum!(Biggify to read it better). Go back here to see close up pictures of the fevvers.
Plus when she was there, she did notice Pudding sitting in front of the fevver box, tail twitching, so he is aware of them. Probably figuring how he can get into that box! Mum didn't take any pictures of this since other beans were there, didn't want to take away their privacy.

Mum is spending way too much time away from home in the evenings. Tonight she said she was off to be bored of the library, so then why did you come home with snacks and an empty wine glass?

Mini ManCat Monday

I am not a friend and I am not a servant. I am the cat who walks by himself, and I wish to come into your cave. - Rudyard Kipling

Hiya, Ducky here! I like this quote a lot. Mum when she is in her sleepy spot lifts the covers and invites me into the cave. I go in sometimes and snuggle against mum's belly. No bad things happened to me cuz of the picture box. Mum is looking into how she can make it so it won't tip over.

Derby and I always do our purrs with mum, morning and night. We purr for all the kitties we know, their beans, our family and of course that all kitties find a loving home like we have. We need to add some super special purrs for our ginger buddy Rudy. He has something in his blood called, Haemobartonellosis. Phew, big word for such a little kittie like me. Rudy needs to take medicine and visit his VET every couple of days. We hopes he gets all better soonest.
We got just a little bit of white stuff from the sky on Caturday, not much, no issues for mum to get out to go shopping and such.
Mum? Where are you taking this box? That is my play box! Oh, temporary use to take a few Christmouse decorations for Grampie. That is good, he needs Christmouse cheer too.
After putting out the stuff for Grampie and visiting, she ran into Puddin. He was checking our the box. He probably got a sniff of me and Derby. This was the best that mum could get of his face.
Derby helping mum watch the feetsball game.
Both Derby and I had to be on snoopervising duty thiw weekend,
mum spent lots of time in the kitchen making this. Nommy, at least for bean, peanut brittle.
Feetsball Report

The Pack - they beat them gold digging Nothern Catifornia Forty-Niners.

Grampa Brett and the ViQueens - Well the ViQueens won, but Grampa Brett left the game injured really early in the game.

The Colts - Them Cowboys tamed those horsies but they had to go into overtime to do it.

Now the Duck is in REAL Trouble

Yep, he really screwed up now. This Wednesday AM, mum was getting her breakfast and mine when we heard a big crash. We don't know how he did it but he knocked over the big and NEW TV.

Mum just got this last Wednesday late afternoon, spending some of her hard earned green papers. It still works OK, but if you look in the above picture below and to the right of Ducky's face you will see a white mark. So the screen has a scratch on it. That isn't a flaw in the photo. Mum was really upset, but she is happy it works OK. Now she has to figure out how to anchor it so he can't do this again.
Hey, it's Ducky. I didn't mean to make the crash. The old picture box was bigger, wider and I could jump on it. I didn't know my own strength here. Plus if mum hadn't had her fake, ceramic pumkins sitting there it wouldn't have scratched. The scratch came from the pumpkin thingy.

Plus if the picture box is working you can't really see it much, it is down in the corner! I will be OK, at least it still works!!!

Plus mum isn't watching much anyway, she has a pile of Christmouse cards to work on. She has to do both her and Grampie's. She spent most of last evening doing them and needs to work on them now too. Guess we better go snoopervise some more. What a mess on the table, it should be cleared off soon.
