 HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday and Happy Boxing Day for those of you who do boxes! I am not that big on boxes purrsonally. 

Me and mum had a quiet Christmouse. Strange cuz she was home all day. Under usual circumstances she would have taken off to have dinner with a friend. Can't do that this year, so she stayed home and cooked for herself, well I did get a little taste too. 

Ymmmm, roast beast, even better, beef tenderloin with mushed potatoes with cheese, sour cream and butter. Plus corn. All yummy per mum. I only wanted some of the beef and I did get a few bites. Yep, yummy. 

On Christmouse Eve mum did a shark coochie board. Huh? Charcuterie board is how it is supposed to be spelled. Heck, it is cheese, sausage, crackers, maybe some jam or fruit. Mum added in cookies and candy. Plus adult beverage. Derby used to love tasting mum's adult beverage at Christmouse time. Irish cream liquer. 

Last but not least mum has finally seen the conjunction of the planets, Jupiter and Saturn, so on Sunday she went out with the flashy box and tried to take pictures. Well, without a tellyscope she doesn't see as much. Without a tripod it is a little shaky but over all this was her best pic. 

Do you see them? Jupiter is right in the center and Saturn just to the right and down a bit. Hard to see? Yeah, so mum cropped it good so you only see the planets. Mum wishes she had a tellyscope. So go buy yourself one mum!

So that was our holly-day. Peaceful and quiet, no snow on the ground, but cold. Plus the days will start to get longer again too. Woot! Packers play on Sunday night so mum will have to find something to do on Sunday during the day. 

Stay safe, stay healthy, wear a mask, get the vaccine when you can. 


  1. Looks like a fun and yummy time Ducky! My Mom and Dad saw the conjunction thingy too and said it was pretty amazing.

  2. That dinner looks yummy. We had roast sirloin too with all the trimmings. Turkey is more traditional, but I am not a fan of it.

  3. The Hubby and I did not visit anyone either; it's just too us and to them!
    We had clouds and overcast, so never saw the conjunction but love to see what others saw. Anything that makes folks look up into the sky is good!
    The Detroit Lions have a game with Tom Brady's team today; we know how that is going to turn out.

  4. Momo and Claire didn't visit or get visit from anyone either. That dinner looks delicious ! Purrs

  5. Sounds like you and your mum had a pretty good Christmas, Ducky. That roast beast looks mighty tasty.

  6. Can you believe my human missed the planets? She was so focused on her computer that she forgot!

  7. You got some real live dead cow? Exzcellent Ducky!

    Sydney, Australia

  8. Looks tasty!

    My momma saw the planets too when she wuz walking the dog.

  9. That is a great shot of the Conjunction and what a nice meal and time with you Ducky which was the best of all


Don't be shy, we loves to hear your meows and mews.
