Marvelous Monday


Howdy!  Well, all is right in my world again as most of you know……Mom didn’t lose her way coming back from her “Girls Weekend” for her birthday and arrived Sunday before lunchtime.  YAY……I gave her the cold shoulder for the first ten minutes then decided that as enough punishment for deserting me and have been following at her heels since (except for when I slept on her lap of course).   She did have a good time though so I suppose I should be GRACIOUS and say I’m glad she did. Here’s a photo of her sitting at her table at the book-signing she attended – this was taken before the doors opened and the throngs of people arrived:



She sold some autographed books, talked to some old friends and made lots of NEW friends so that means it was a success!  I think if I’d been sitting on her table it would have attracted more people to come over and then I could have told them about the kids cat book she wrote……..on the other hand I would have been freaking out at all the strangers so maybe it’s a good thing I WASN’T there!!

Now here’s some scoop for ya about tomorrow’s Teaser……….it’s another GUEST TEASER but it’s not from my friends at My Three Moggies this time.   I hope it’s going to be a toughie but I’m not sure – – – – so be ready when it pops into your email inbox and if you’re FIRST with the right answer you know you get that fantabulous purple award badge thingie that Easy has won about 100 of because he is:


BUT, there are a lot of you who are super good at figuring out where the Teaser is so BE READY DUDES!!!

Also, I hope you’re already thinking about what you’re gonna wear for my Halloween Costume Competition……………There WILL be prizes you know………YAY!


As we get closer to THE BIG DAY (Sam-O-Ween) I’ll give you more info about the contest but also tell you more about my actual Halloween BLOG because it’s gonna be fun just stopping by even if you don’t enter the contest.



Guy Time: Day Two


Happy Caturday!    Well, yesterday was alright but I did remind Dad SEVERAL TIMES that today is one of my favorite days and just because Mom wasn’t here I did NOT expect to give up that FAVORITE thing of mine!!

Oh boy!  Me swimming in a pool of bacon!

Oh boy! Me swimming in a pool of bacon!

He told me last night that he will be making bacon and eggs this morning.  Eggs?  Pffffft for me but bacon – well – a weekend without bacon is just no weekend PERIOD.

Speaking of bacon, I wanna show you something my Mom got for her birthday from her SUPER good friend Miss Michelle at MY THREE MOGGIES……and it was SPECIALLY MADE for my Mom by Mollie’s Mom in her wonderful online store HERE !!   You can order a plaque too and I’ve gotta tell you – Mom and I just LOVE this one (for obvious reasons!!):



Recognize the picture of me at the bottom? 


Anyway, bacon will soothe my nerves I’m quite sure and tomorrow Mom comes home so I guess this Guy Time thing is pretty swell after all.   Assuming he comes through with the bacon of course……otherwise I think you know I’ll be standing by the front door tomorrow waiting to catch Mom’s ear FIRST THING when she come through the door!!!

Mommy – Daddy forgot bacon!!! Whaaaaaa!





Guy Time: Day One


SHE’S GONE!!   Yep – in spite of my best “poor pitiful me” cry and look she took her overnight bag (well, two overnights but who’s counting except me?) and hopped in her car and off she went.  Sniff.  I tried – I really did – but she wouldn’t be swayed.  Even by this:

Sam Saying HI To The Camera

Poor pitiful me….and I’m saying it with my eyes AND my voice!

So Dad and I are gonna make the best of it…….there will be lots of burping and watching of guy stuff on TV (like my Dad’s overly extensive collection of flying and train videos) and other manly stuff.  Yep – no girls though – I promised Mom there would be none of that.  We’re just gonna hang and have quality time together.

Playing on the stairs!

Sam and His Dad Playing on the Rug

Playing on the floor….

LUV football - Super bowl, regular season - doesn't matter to me!

Football !

I’ll also be pitiful enough that he takes me outside for a stroll several times over the days Mom’s gone – and when it comes to treats?  Well, I’ll make sure he knows I get LOTS of those from Mom and he’d better try to beat her at that…..(hee hee).

Sam On His Cookie Rug

I get my cookies on a floor mat by my Dad’s chair.

So I will be VERY busy while Mom’s gone and that will make the time just FLY…….right?  However, I will miss Mom’s lap and while I’m SURE my Dad would be thrilled if I popped up on his legs for a snooze while Mom’s gone, experience has shown me that it’s just NOT THE SAME………he’s wiggly and gets up every five minutes for something or another………nope – when it comes to laps, there’s NOTHING like a Mom!!

Happy Friday Everybody!

Kitty Hugs, Sammy

A Most Remarkable Day


Good Morning!  ‘Tis me first today….Sammy’s Mom Pam  – Sam is giving me a minute to horn in on HIS blog because I simply MUST take some time to thank each and every one of you who came by the blog yesterday or visited us on Facebook or sent an email to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me.  Never in my many birthdays have I had one like yesterday’s.  The video Michelle from MY THREE MOGGIES did with the participation of MANY of you was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen and was a tremendous amount of work to put together.  I am eternally grateful – Michelle you are a wonder and a VERY good friend.  I hope each and every one of you feels THAT special on your birthdays – whenever they may be……..and thank you for being my friend as well as Sammy’s !

This time the hug is from ME !!!!

This time the hug is from ME !!!!

Love to you All…………….

Now that Mom has said that, I’ll move on to other things like thanking you PURRRRSONALLY for being part of my Mom’s birthday celebration.  I think she might have used an entire box of Kleenex.  😀 😀 😀 😀

Have you all read about today being another very special occasion?  Well it is…….

Take a moment today to remember all those little ones who didn’t quite make it to that loving forever companion. Light a candle if you are able, and if you can’t, light one virtually by sharing the event through social media. The larger this campaign gets, the more influential it becomes, the more lives it can save.


So many pets lose their lives every year never knowing how wonderful it is to be adopted and have a forever home………I know how wonderful it is, and you do too……..raising awareness DOES help.

I had lots of comments on the BEAUTIFUL photos from my Tuesday Teaser this week – they were courtesy of Miss Shell and she did the Tell All video too – she’s EVER so talented don’t you think?  ANYWAY, I mentioned that she ahd her husband Mr. Craig have a pawsome travel blog that many of you might not know about BUT I had the wrong link for that blog (Naked Eye Travel) – I DID fix it later in the morning yesterday but if any of you tried to pop through to it and couldn’t get it, HERE is the correct link!  If you love travel and love photos of places all over the world along with information on what to see and what to do while there, PLEASE visit Naked Eye Travel.  It’s GREAT and we love it.

Mom and I will be spending lots of quality time together today because she knows that since she’s deserting me and Dad for TWO WHOLE DAYS I’ll be going from room to room searching for her and crying my golden eyes out for her.  Yep – I’m a Momma’s boy and when she’s not here – no matter WHAT Dad does – I miss her dreadfully.   Sniff……Mom is going to help me long distance with my bloggies until she’s home on Sunday but MIGHT not be able to help me respond to your comments so if you don’t hear back until Sunday – don’t panic – I’ll be there to respond sooner or later!!

When a guy loves his Mom as much as bacon - well - it's REAL love!!!!
