There you have it!   Shopping in my town – Mom has been doing a lot of shopping the past few days with company here but this morning Miss Michelle and Mr. Craig from MY THREE MOGGIES left for the airport to fly to NYC for a few days before heading back to Oscar, Archie and Henry – their three moggies – who no doubt miss them!   We will miss them too – I got to know them and was very brave and even let Miss Michelle carry me around!   I’ll share some videos she did of me after we receive them from them when they return home………..I know some of you have been after me FOREVER AND EVER to do a video…..we had no way to do it but Miss Michelle did some with her fancy phone while they were here.   WOOT!

Happy Friday – we’ll be back to regular blog schedule starting tomorrow………………….honest!

Hugs,

Sammy

Sammy what a great list..and I forgot mine!! what a complete nut! speaking of which I love planters nuts..when I was a little girl my dad had part time night work at a pub and some mornings I would wake up and a little packet of planters nuts would be n my bedside table…it was such a treat!

  7. You were very brave Sammy. No-one picks me up and survives apart from my mum and dad. We call those little tomatoes cherry tomatoes and mum also serves them with mozzarella and a balsamic dressing.

  9. Mom loves those little grape tomatoes too. They seem to have been especially good this winter, she says. We aren’t too fond of them:(

    Glad your visit went so well. Now have a relaxing weekend (with bacon).

    • Mom said the same thing about the tiny tomatoes – extra sweet – maybe almost like “concentrated” flavor!! I have been known to steal one and roll it about on the floor like a little ball…..as least I used to do that until Dad stepped on one in the kitchen when I was playing with it so no more for me! HAHAHAHA

    • We have seen that lactose-free, fat free milk and it truly is VERY expensive….but when that’s what you must have to drink/use, then you just re-mortgage your house and buy it! HAHAHAHA Seriously though, food is getting “out of control” expensive these days!

      Happy Saturday CK!

    • I’ll have several videos I think – for now I only have one that Miss Michelle left behind and it’s very short – I’m sitting on top of an old ugly chair looking confused because I never had a camera take a MOVIE of me before!

      Bacon’s shopping blog hop is tons of fun – once a month he does them so be on the lookout for the next one!

      Hugs, Sammy
