Tuesday This and That

HiYa Ducky here. I got left all alone for most of the day. Mum kept saying stuff, but she was upstairs and I was, well, she doesn't know. I had made myself scarce. I guess she said she was leaving and wouldn't be back until evening time.

So where did she go? Down to Illy-noisy to see an old furiend. They were in school way back when, they are now both retired. Plus mum furiend lives in a new place. Mum says it is nice.
 Mum and her furiend Christine. They have known each other for over 40 years! They keep in touch but haven't had much time to actually see each other. Now they have time to do that.
 The view from her house is farming fields, she feels at home, she used to have a small farm in the country. She picked this spot as she is on the end and all her windows face farm fields.
 Mum furiend in the front door. Mum liked the place but said it would be bigger than our house here! It is all new, clean and shiny!
 I was happy mum got home. She sat down and I worked on getting my loves and scritches. Keep up those ear rubs.

HiYa, Ducky here. Happy Caturday and Happy Memorial Day weekend. Nice for the working beans that they don't have to work on Monday. Mum and I are always on holly-day now with er retired.

I am up and playing, chasing around the house, up and down the tower a few times. Just having fun playing. Mum readed the newsy paper and I held her down. We watched the sqwerls, chippies and fevvers for a bit too. Now mum says she needs to go outside and pull weeds!
On a sad note our good furiend Shaggy ran off to the bridge. He joins his brother Scooby there and all the rest of the gang. Mum was all leaky eyed when she found out. See you again someday Shaggy. Farewell.
 Have a safe weekend.

Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur. Our spring flowers are just about done. Waiting for the summer ones to come.
 The last of the two-lips and the pee-o-knee with flower buds. The pee-o-knee in the back has lots more flower buds.
 Here are some of the ally-ums opening up in the front, most of them are purple, a few are white.
 Mum spied this bloom, it will open up and be a poppy. We have a red one in the back, this one is peachy colored.
 A few more little ally-ums in a different spot in the yard.
 Mum spyed a bunch of batches of mushrooms in the naybors yard. There used to be a tree here so they are feeding off of the tree that is still rotting under the grass. As long as they stay out of our yard mum says she will leave them alone.

That is all for this week. We have an upcoming holly-day weekend here in Mericky. Everyone be safe.

Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Tuesday This and That

HiYa Ducky here. A bit of a sad day around the world and the cat blogosphere. Sending our purrs to all those in Manchester who are dealing with the aftermath of another nasty purrson.

The Blogospher is also sad as we lost a leader of the cat world. Cheysuli, or Chey to her furiends, was a wonderful meezer who at one point ran for president. My brofur Derby was her running mate. Run free sweet Chey, we will miss you.

Mum was not happy with me early this morning. She was sleeping in the fevver watching chair and I just managed to test out gravity. Mum says she heard the noise of me pushing it, but it didn't register until she heard the crash. Nothing broke, fake flowers. Mum was just upset at being woken up, she didn't sleep well last night.
 Here I was on another day checking out the flowers a few weeks ago. Mum called me a bad kitty. She said she loves me, but that I was a bad kitty.

The kitty mum lunch. It was with Trish of the Katnip Lounge plus a couple of other ladies. They didn't take any new pics, these are from last year. They were in Whiskerconsin for a wedding on the weekend.

The weather is icky, me and mum just hanging out inside.

Who hath a better friend than a cat? - William Hardwin

Me and mum are furiends. Heck we are even furiends with benefits. At least the benefits of sharing a nice warm bed. It got coldish here again, mum had turned off the heaty monster in the dungeon, but when the house started to get cold, mum turned it back on.

Sharing a bed? Yeah, I can soak up some of here warms and she gets my warms too. I spent 5 hours the other night with her, jumped out for a bit, then came back for another hour later. 
 Me with mum, she is working on the puter. I push my paws under the puter. It is nice and warms on my paws.

Mum says she is off to meet another kitty mum later today. I will report the visit when she gets back.

Have a good week everyone.

HiYa, Ducky here. Happy Caturday. Me and mum have had our early AM snuggles and brekkie. Did a bit of fevver watching, we saw the hummerbirds come to the feeder.

It was all nice early this week. Then it got all cold and windy. Mum even turned the heaty monster on the the dungeon yesterday and then let it run first thing this morning. She turned it off again and said she will just watch to see how warms the house is today.
To help keep me and mum warm I have been holding her down. She has been watching Downton Abbey, all six seasons. She just now working on season five.

Happy weekend.

Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Well the hots showed up for a couple of days, complete with thunder boomers. Today is a bit cooler. Plus we had wind.

So our pretty pink tree has made all the confetti. Mum was happy she was home when it was all purrty so she could really enjoy it for a change.
Plus all of the pruning mum did last week. She got it all moved from by the metal monster room out to the  street.
 It all disappeared one after noon while mum was out for just a little bit the village people came by and scooped it all up. Now mum says she needs to weed some flower beds.
Hope you enjoyed the garden, see you next week. Love Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Did St. Francis preach to the birds? Whatever for? If he really liked birds he would have done better to preach to the cats. - Rebecca West

Excuse me? I don't need no sermon! On what? Not eating birds? Nah, me and mum just watch them. We have now seen all of our usual birds that hang about in the summer. So now we are on the lookout for special guys that fly through on their way north. Extreme closeup of Mr Rose-breasted grosbeak.
 Mum went out on Caturday to help teens learn to drive better. Mum doesn't actually teach, she just chases after traffic cones when the get booted. So another 30 kids have a better foundation at being better drivers.

Sunday me and mum hung out. I woke her up early to get and give loves for Mum's Day. Otherwise we had a quiet day. Mum has been going back and watching Downton Abbey. Just about done with season four.
 Me inside while mum cooked her dinner. We are getting all of the confetti from our purrty tree. The flowers will all be gone through soonest.
 Mum's dinner, simple. A nice steak and salad. Me waiting for my share!
 Yep, I got some. She wouldn't dare not give me a few bites, otherwise she might get a surprize or two from me!
Happy week.

Happy Mum's Day

Happy Day to all of the Mum's out there. Special loves to my own mum, you are so special to me.

Saturday, May 13, 2017


HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday. Things are nice around here, mum  has been outside working and hasn't even had to wear a jacket. That makes her happy. It also means it is nice enuf to have open windows!
 Mum missed the chair when she tossed her jacket the other day. I was holding it down and furring it up until she rescued it from the floor.
 Sniff, sniff. Nothing to smell, these are fake flowers. Mum thought I was trying to eat them and told me I shouldn't eat them. Plastic isn't good for my tummeh.
Me holding mum down. I love lap time and try to get as much as I can. Hope all of you get lots of lap time this weekend too.

Happy Weekend.

Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur. Mum retook our pic with her fancy flashy box. We look purrty good.
 Here is an extreme closeup of our crabby apple tree in full flower, looking good. It won't last long, but we enjoy it while we can.
 Here is the whole tree. Mum was out pruning the deaded little branches from the tree. Plus she pruned a lot of other stuff too.
 Here is our bleeding heart all in full bloom as well. Spring is so nice with all of the flowers. 
 Here is Fleur, she has a wonderful sun puddle to sit in by the crabby apple tree.
All that pruning? Here is the pile. Mum has to tame it down by getting it in smaller pieces and near the street by Sunday. The peoples from the village will be by to pick it up. It will save mum lots of trips to the compost pile!
Happy weekend.

Tuesday This and That

HiYa Ducky here. Mum was out tonight, she came  home smelling of lemonade! Yep, just lemonade. Seemss she was at the library (where else) as they had a little thank you for the people who volunteer. That was nice.

So once she got home, I demanded lap time and got it.
then I mooched up to the back of the couch to snoopervise her puter work.
Now she better let me check out my furiends blogs tonight!

Cats regard people as warmblooded furniture - Jacquelyn Mitchard

Yeah and I took advantage of it last night. Mum did another of her racy car weekends. This time it was just Caturday and Sunday.
Sure mum had to check out some stuff on the puter, but as soon as she was done, I was in her lap. She even waited to work on the Sunday newsy paper.

Thanks to all who stopped by on Derby Day. Mum said she dreamed about Derby on his Gotcha Day. Heh, he was coming back to haunt her!

Caturday - Derby Day

HiYa Ducky here. Welcom to my Derby Party for when the horsies run for roses. So come on in and have some noms and maybe a few nip juleps.
Lots of foods so help  yourselves, if you don't see something you like, then ask the staff for it.

Nip juleps, but be careful, they can be powerful. Plus kittens, only milk and water for you. 

I would like to raise a toast to my late, grate brofur Derby. He was adopted on the first Caturday in May back in 2005. Officially it was on May 7, so Sunday is his official Gotcha Day, but we celllybrate Derby Day every year just for him.Cheers to you Derby, love you and miss you.
