Let The Votes Begin!

Standard

Good Morning EVERYBODY!   And I do mean EVERYBODY because I know you’ll be here bright and early to cast your votes – seems this whole moon trip has gone bananas and tons of people are waiting patiently to see all the contest entries.  No wonder – they’re GREAT and I ought to know because I’ve been working along with my Mom to try and get everybody into the right contests with their super photos.

I said yesterday and I’ll say again – with the number of people who sent photos in for the contest and even not for the contests – just to be sending a plain spacesuit photo undecorated so they could go – there’s bound to be someone left out unintentionally.  We hope not – we’ve checked and re-checked – but there might be and I apologize in advance if that DOES happen.   We have tried our best!  Photos came in at different times – people sent several versions of their photos so we couldn’t keep track easily – but we did try!

Bravo everyone who entered !

 You did an AMAZING job

with all the artwork. 

Everyone is so talented and I hope you

had as much fun doing the photos as we had SEEING them!!

So on with the show(s) right????    Remember you can click to bigify the photos – and remember you can choose as many favorites as you wish.   Also remember TODAY IS THE ONLY DAY FOR VOTING!!!    That’s right.  Just until midnight tonight Eastern Standard Time.

READY?   SET?   Here we go!

Check out these booooootiful spacesuits first!

Then we have the fantabulous Stardust Hotel Room decorations!

Last but FAR from least – the scariest, weirdest bunch of Moon monsters you’ve EVER seen!

See what I mean?  Almost impossible to get through all of these great entries but here we are – at the end.   Thanks for casting your votes.  This will decide who the winners will be at the BIG awards banquet at the Stardust Hotel on the Moon this Friday, February 28th.    We had another chaperone sign on too – my Cat Scout friend Nibbler’s Mom Yvonne is joining my Mom and Miss Dianna.  THREE humans ought to be able to keep track of a bazillion animals right???    Here are our chaperones:

My Mom - Chaperone #1

My Mom – Chaperone #1

Miss Dianna - Chaperone #2

Miss Dianna – Chaperone #2

Nibbler's Mom Yvonne - Chaperone #3

Nibbler’s Mom Yvonne – Chaperone #3

Before I go, I wanted to share another of the incredibly fabulous posters that our friend Miss Layla from CatWisdom 101 submitted for the contest.   It’s her cat Odin, me, and another space traveler exiting Ralph but instead of SCARY monsters that we discover when we get to the Moon, we find the cutest little kitties with wings I’ve ever seen!   This was just too CUTE to put in the “Monster” contest but I wanted you to see it……..I wish all monsters we dream about or see (!) could be as adorable as little winged kitty monsters don’t you???   Thanks Layla for your magical posters.

Now if you’ll excuse me I do believe I’m going to go curl up and take a nap…..a guy can’t get too much sleep before a moon trip right?   Indeed !!

  5. What an incredible job efurrybuddy did. We are so impressed by those who found their own special moon suits. And there are so many great entries…we couldn’t stop voting.

    • Thanks for the compliment for my Mom – she was a real trooper and while this was a lot of fun there were a lot of sleepless nights (!!) worrying about leaving someone out or not posting the newest version of a photo (some people sent one then changed their mind and sent a second or third!!). Anyway, the polls are done so now we can really HAVE SOME FUN ON THE MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!! Sorry you had such a hard time getting the photos to us!!

      Hugs, Sammy

  9. Hi Sammy, Kitties Blue again. Mom is sending Mom Pam a new photo of Mau and Allie in case you are possibly planning on using that one in another post. She’s going to use the Google account as that seemed to work yesterday. She’ll tell Mom Pam in the e-mail why she is changing it. Purrs and paw-pats, LO, M, MM, G, F, A, L and CJ

    • P.S. And TW’s stoopy students got themselves into the basketball playoffs so she has to leave in about 20 minutes and won’t be home till after 9:30 our time. Well, okay, we will resign ourselves but we hope there will be a way to at least be able to look at all the pictures later even if it’s too late to vote. We don’t much care really about voting but we will has the sads if we don’t get to see everyone!

    • I’m sorry Spitty – Mom had a major migraine and just couldn’t stay up to turn off the poll at midnight! We closed the poll down at 8PM……we’re going to re-run ALL of the photos of the contest in a post later today in slideshow form though – hadn’t thought of doing that BUT for you (tee hee) and everyone else who might not have seen them I’m going to do a major slideshow with the entries! Sorry buddy…really. 😦

        • Spitty my boy – don’t give it a second thought! I’m glad you enjoyed the slideshow (which was a lot easier to put together ANYWAY but harder to use as a voting dealio!). My Mom is feeling peachy (whatever the heck that means) today and working with me on the REST of the trip. Tomorrow is the BIG LAUNCH you know….I do hope you’ll be there bright and early (well early anyway) and ready to travel – the time has come. Yep – off we go into the wild blue yonder Spitty my friend!
