Fab Friday

Oh this weather just HAS TO GO ON…………we’ve decided at my house that this would be PERFECT stuff to have year-round…….there must be somewhere on the planet where that’s the case……today was sunny ALL DAY and the high temperature was 79.   Just right.  Sigh.   Not many more pretty leaves came tumbling down today though because no wind…..what we need (but I’m not asking for it trust me on that!) is a few more overnight freezes then WHAMMO – leaves will FLY out of the trees!

Fall sunsets………………gorgeous right?

Leaves as the sun goes down...

Leaves as the sun goes down…

Today will be another one of those days only slightly cooler………………….no complaints – I’ll take it!

Yesterday my parents deserted me for a while – went rug shopping.   I’ll have some new rugs to “break in” in a couple of weeks I guess.   Just about when I get them to smell right, have just enough cat hair on them, just the right about of “Sammy” on them, they go and get NEW rugs.   HA!  That won’t stop me…..I’ll have them SAMMIFIED in no time!

Today I have a BIG EVENT at Cat Scouts……we’re going to hop on the Cat Scouts jet and pop up to Mackinac Island in Michigan and stay at the Grand Hotel for one night.  We’re having a “Somewhere In Time” trip – back in time complete with Jane Seymour who made that movie (some of you may recall) which was a big hit.   Anyway, we’ll be in costume for the fancy dinner that night…………..period stuff from the 1900s…………what do you think?


The Grand Hotel…..on an island…..what a place THIS is!


Dashing right?

We sure have a blast at Cat Scouts……if you’re a cat (yes that’s a requirement!) and wanna have some fun with us – what are you waiting for?   CLICK HERE    I’d love to see you there!!!

The Sam-O-Ween costume contest is shaping up to be BIG………….I may need to award a FIRST PLACE and a SECOND PLACE……..both of the winners will receive prizes – whatcha think?????

You’ve got FIVE MORE DAYS to send in your costume (real or photoshopped either way) to me at junekimm(at)aol(dot)com.    Then voting will start.   Oh boy oh boy oh boy!!!!


Have a grand day………I’m gonna!!

Love, Sammy

    I hear ya… it needs a lot of work to make it to OUR pawsonal rugs… and always when a rug is well decorated, they replace it with a new one… I feel like that greek guy with the big stone sometimes :o(


    • 2

      I’m going to be busy getting those new rugs into shape aren’t I Easy?! I hope they have the good sense to realize that whatever I “add” to it, makes ME feel more comfortable about the rug. Just a bit of SAMMY goes a long way!

      Love, Sammy


      • 3

        I have an idea… you can give a Sammy RUG instead of a Sammy HUG to the furst right guesser on tuesday, so your pawrents can buy a new rug efurry week :o) brilliant, right?

    Looking very dashing Sammy!

    We don’t get new rugs that often here – the last time was right before I came to live here.


    • 7

      Mom and Dad have had a couple of rugs in the kitchen before but nothing as NICE as this…and now with the hardwood floors Mom wanted something “nice” (whatever THAT means!).

      Love, Sammy


  4. Hubba hubba, S. You are VERY dashing for the Cat Scouts trip. Looks like it’ll be quite the event!

    Love and licks,

      Love, Sammy

    Rugs – snorts. Mom/dad will tell you cousin. I can’t be trusted with rugs. Any kind whatsoever. We just don’t get along. They trip me and then I trip them if you know what I mean – snorts. It’s the way it works here at the Hotel Thompson. Cat Scouts sounds awesome – we love that movie. Hope you have a fantastic time! XOXO – Bacon
    P.S. I’m with you on the weather. I could live in this weather year wrong and be the happiest piggy on Earth.

    No better colors throughout the year, got to love it.

    hey!! When you come to Michigan, drive a few hours south to OUR house!! xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody


  15. Sammy, I’ve been told that the weather in San Francisco is like the weather you prefer all year ’round. Never been there myself, but that’s what people say. I agree with you! Not too hot. Not too cold. Just right! 🙂


    • 32

      If it weren’t for the fact that California is going to break off the West Coast and float out into the ocean as an island soon (hahahahahaha), I’d move there. I too have heard that San Fran is a beautiful place to live though!

      Hugs, Sammy

    • 34

      Hey DOODS! First let me say that the velvet belly lantern shark sounds like a VERY pretty but possibly MEAN fish – is it? Secondly, I’m glad you liked that sunset shot – we get some BEAUTS this time of year! Thirdly, I enjoy giving rugs a good SCRATCH myself……a new rug will need me to give it a scratch treatment right away!

      Love, Sammy

    Dat sounds pawsome! We got da rains here.


  20. You are having a much better fall than us. There was one day it reached 67 and we thought of an Indian Summer but that was it. So I guess our Indian Summer is over. Your trip is fascinating and so are you in your spiffy get up Sammy.

    That sunset is beautiful, Sammy. See ya on Mackinaw Island! ~Wally

      Wally it was SO COOL to see that picture of your island and for you to show us right where your house is! Must be wonderful living there……..even though I couldn’t post on the site last night (BOOOO), I watched and it looked like you all were having a fabulous time. We’ll see you this morning for your brunch in the garden with Cat! Can’t wait to enjoy some Michigan delights!

      Love, Sammy

    Our Mom wants new rugs, but she can’t find anything she likes and can afford. Lucky for us! The humans were so happy with yesterday’s weather as they got to go biking. It was absolutely gorgeous. No sun today, and it’s supposed to be 10 degrees cooler. Phooey! Mau’s having fun at the Somewhere in Time outing. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

      Mom and Dad love the rug/carpet/drape place they go to in Amissville. Early’s Carpets has been in business for a long time and it’s family run – very friendly peeps and excellent customer service. The carpets were ON SALE too! We have rain this morning…..AND it’s 57 and DAMP. I’m glad your Mom and Dad got to go biking yesterday though!

      Love, Sam
