Sunday Selfie Hop

Standard

Happy Sunday everyone.   Time for selfies in this fun hop hosted by Kitties Blue!    Today is a SPECIAL SUNDAY HOP because it’s Kitties Blue’s SEVENTH  BLOGAVERSARY!    Make sure and stop by to wish them a happy celebration…….AND they’re having a commentathon so make sure and check it out.     If you’d like to join in and show yourself off with us, just click the badge above, fill out the linky form and you’ll be strutting your stuff like the rest of us are!

My selfie today shows me inspecting a project my Mom is doing which is taking longer than it should…….she’s hemming a beautiful quilt my Auntie Carol made for her – but because she’s doing about 15 other things around here at the same time AND her arthritis in her right hand hurts when she does some things more than others, she’s taking a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG time to finish.   I just thought I’d take a peek and see how she’s doing………at this rate, she won’t have this project done for another week or so!

Hmm…..this is the back of the quilt – too bad you didn’t have it folded the other way round so everyone could see the front!    Well, when you’ve finished I’ll pose on it for you Mom!

Because this was a rather boring selfie, Mom decided to Lunapic it up a bit……………….here it is:

Then she of course made a puzzle for all of you who enjoy doing puzzles to go crazy on a Sunday!!

CLICK the MINI-ME for the puzzle – good luck!

Everybody stay cool……………………….it was 100 here yesterday and should be just about that again today.    Needless to say I have NOT asked to go outside for a walk – I’m not nuts!!   I’m a COOL cat!

Cool Man……..

 

Hugs, Teddy

Sunday Selfie Hop

Hello Friends!!   It’s Sunday – time to add my photo to the Selfie Blog Hop hosted by Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head.   You should join us – click the badge, fill out the linky form and add your photo to the pile.   Easy right?

Yesterday I was in the guest room enjoying a sun puddle which had just started to move my way when Mom came in with the flashy box and nabbed this photo of me.    Funny how I have two “extra” stripes down my back from the window frame.   I have no problem with stripes obviously – I have lots – so I didn’t mind these “extras” showing up in the photo.

The guest room was nice and cool – add the sun puddle and it kept me PERFECTLY COZY for a nap.   In fact, Mom looked back in on me after she uploaded my photos to her computer and I was sound asleep.

Mom decided not to jazz up the photo with Lunapic either – we’re letting it stand “AS IS” !!

Did we make a puzzle?    Well of course we did…………………….

Just Click this MINI-ME and you’ll get the puzzle!

 

Happy Sunday World!   

Hugs, Teddy

Sunday Selfie Hop

Sunday is here yet again – it just keeps on showing up after Saturday so we keep doing a Selfie with Kitties Blue on the day after – SUNDAY!   Want to join in the Selfie fun?   Link up by clicking on The Cat On My Head’s badge above.   Then you can see everybody AND be part of the fun with your OWN Selfie too.

The very first thing I am doing before I show my SELFIE is to let you all know that Kitties Blue’s youngest guy, Sawyer, has had a rough time these past several days – two seizures and a trip to the vet.   We worry about him all the time and I know you do too – I did this badge for him a while back after a bad seizure – maybe if we post it again it will bring the little guy some GOOD LUCK.   He does need it and his parents need some more energy to deal with helping him.    Please keep all of them in your prayers.

I thought I’d do a FLASHBACK Selfie of ME this week.   Mom did take a “new” photo of me that we COULD use, but FLASHBACKS are fun.    I like seeing ME in the past – we all know what I look like in the present after all right?!

This is the “artsy” Selfie that Mom we posted on July 9, 2017 – I’d been here for five months and was feeling pretty feisty about then.    I was realizing that I wasn’t going ANYWHERE – I was HOME SWEET HOME!   

 

Here’s the “wee-me” photo that you can click to do the PUZZLE!!!

Happy Sunday and please don’t forget to send some POTP to Sawyer…..and his family.

Love, Teddy

P.S.  A reminder for Teaser Fans…..Monday there won’t be a PRE-TEASER class – just remember to show up Tuesday morning ready to study a photo and guess where it was taken!   Mom and I are going to go back to posting a “SPARK” on Mondays.   

 

Sunday Selfie Hop

Standard

It’s Sunday and time to Hop with Kitties Blue again………………………..the day of the week we join in their Hop and show ourselves off with selfies!    If you click their badge you will go there and you can sign up and do the same – smile pretty for the camera!

I’ve got a DIFFERENT selfie for you today…………….it’s not ME – it’s my Cousin Casey!     Casey lives with my Auntie Carol (my Mom’s sister) and Mom visited with Auntie Carol Wednesday and of course HAD to take a few photos.    Do you get the idea from this photo of Casey that he enjoys having his photo taken?    Poses pretty well doesn’t he?!     Casey is an Imperial Shih-Tzu……smaller than the regular sized Shih-Tzu and has a distinctive “liver” coloring meaning brown nose, lips and eyes instead of the usual black.    My Mom thinks he’s kinda cute – know what?  I do too – and I’m a WHOLE LOT BIGGER THAN HE IS!   TEE HEEEEEEEEE

Smile for Mom’s camera Casey……………..

Casey is a very cool pup – he is a “dog of many colors” as my Mom says.   He has a different color coat almost every time Mom sees him!    I can give you some examples:

Casey at Easter in 2017

Casey in August of 2017

Pretty fun isn’t it?   I think Casey might be magic or something.    Anyway, I decided he could be the SELFIE GUY for us this Sunday.     Mom even made a fancy picture of him with Lunapic AND of course a puzzle for you puzzle peeps!

Mom used the “CONNECTIONS” art filter on Lunapic for this one………I like it – looks somehow a little oriental maybe?

Here’s the puzzle of the above photo – good luck – might be a bit of a toughie………………………still, a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon right?    See you next week for another Selfie – probably of ME ME ME!

CLICK THE MINI-CASEY FOR THE PUZZLE!

Before we go……………………..

Summer’s sister Binga at SPARKLECAT went to the Bridge last night.  She had a long and happy life with Miss Janiss and we are very sad to see her go.   If you click the badge above, you can visit SPARKLECAT and leave a note for Summer, Boodie and Miss Janiss.

On a happier note, today is our little buddy Sawyer’s SECOND birthday!   Sawyer’s had  rough time of it with his seizure disorder so if you stop by (click his birthday card) to wish him a happy day I think he’s REALLY appreciate it!

Happy Friday!   Time to complete some sentences that have holes left in them on purpose by our co-hosts with an eye towards divulging a little bit of ourselves so you know us better!   Sneaky huh?!   Well, mostly it’s just fun to do and if you’d like to join in, click the badge above which links to 15AndMeowing and link up!!!

We get two sentences from each of our co-hosts and each week my Mom and I kind of trade off who gets to fill-in……………………Mom’s in charge this week and her words are in RED.

1. Summer is a good time to stay inside (it’s so hot and humid and buggy outside!).

2. The most recent person  that I talked on the phone with was my sister – we talked about what a nice visit we had for her 81st birthday on Wednesday!.
3. I thought I would grow out of wanting to live happily ever after, but I haven’t.
4. I feel annoyed when people ask me why I don’t color my hair (it’s a mousy brown with the occasional gray hair – big deal – I’m sorry if it’s boring!!).
Thanks Mom…………..Did you say MOUSIE brown hair?    I think MOUSIE brown is a GREAT color!!!!!!!

No I’m not a throw rug Mom…………….step OVER the kitty and not on him please!   

Love, Teddy

Sunday Selfie Hop on Fathers’ Day

Standard

Happy Sunday AND Happy Father’s Day!     Time to HOP with Kitties Blue.   Are you hopping with us?    You can click their badge above and link up that way  if you like.    Show yourself off with us every Sunday on the Selfie Hop that they host.

This week’s photo is one Mom took on Thursday when she was changing the sheets……….as soon as she pulled the pillow cases off the pillows I popped on top of the pillows, lay down and promptly went to sleep.    Yep – I did – and once more I’ve NEVER EVER done that before (get on the pillows instead of just the bed!)  so it was fun to see her so surprised.      I stayed there for about ten minutes then transferred to the bed itself and kept her from changing the sheets for a nice two hour stretch while I napped.    I didn’t hold up laundry day though – she did all the other laundry while I got my nap in THEN she got the bed sheets.

Here I am………………..

Yep – it’s a little blurry – Mom says it makes me look soft – I say I’m pretty darn SOFT anyway!     Well, just for fun Mom added a Lunapic art effect called “BRAVE” to this photo and we did a puzzle out of it too!

Mom jazzed my photo up on Lunapic using the “BRAVE” art effect………….do I look brave?    THEN she did a puzzle of this photo for those of you who enjoy doing them – – – here you are!

Just click this MINI-ME picture and go for it……

Happy Sunday and Happy Father’s Day to ALL Dads – especially MINE!

Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop

Happy Friday!   Time to do a bit of filling in with our co-hosted HOP for that purpose.   Every Friday Four-Legged Furballs and 15andMeowing give us two sentences each with lots of left out words and we just fill in the blanks.   Couldn’t be easier and you’d be surprised how much we learn about each other just from that!     If you click the badge above you can link up and have fun with us.

Here are this week’s sentences and I decided to let Mom do her thing with these – I probably COULD have helped but I’m sleeping in this morning (on top of her pillows!) so HAVE AT IT MOM!   Her words are in GREEN.

1. I hope Planet Earth never goes out of business. (Weird answer?  Maybe but you have to admit, we’re doing our best to mess it up and I really hope we don’t – it’s our HOME SWEET HOME!)
2. So far, the highlight of my year has been having fun with my husband discussing possible super vacations for our 30th anniversary next year – so many places we’d like to see!
3. Doing laundry takes up too much time.   (A necessary evil though unless we lived in a nudist colony and “THAT AIN’T HAPPENING” !!!)
4. If I didn’t have to sleep, I would spend that extra time reading more.    (I’m on the computer enough as it is but I’d like to spend LESS time on it and more time with my nose buried in a book)
Thanks Mom!   Good job……..maybe next week I’ll take a turn.   You never know!

YAY – It’s FRIDAY!!

Love, Teddy

Sunday Selfie Blog Hop

Happy Sunday!   You know what Sunday means – selfies!    Our hosts at The Cat On My Head would love for you to join in the selfie fun and it’s easy – just click their badge above and link up!

I’m going back to my FLASHBACK SELFIE pattern since Mom hasn’t dragged out the camera lately to snap me in any embarrassing photos.   That’s OK with me.   I have lots of photos I don’t mind pulling up from the past because it reminds me of how far I’ve come in the two plus years I’ve lived here!

This little gem was from just about this same day in 2017 – remember I was adopted in February of that year so this was just four months after I learned that I was a lucky guy.   I had also beat up this poor little “tent” that Angel Sammy had left behind for me.    Mom has retired it to her closet because she can’t bear to throw it away…….yet.      She put it next to the brand NEW tent she’d bought for me and I had a two bedroom suite.     I guess I was so exhausted this day that I barely made it inside the “front door” of my red tent before I passed out.    Poor me.

Of course we couldn’t stop there………..Mom had to make a puzzle of this silly looking photo……………………so if you’re so inclined, just click the photo below and have a try!

Happy Sunday with Hugs,

Friendly Fill-Ins on Friday

Standard

Here we are again on a Friday with our “fill-in” Blog Hop co-hosted by our friends at 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs!    IF you’d like to play along – click the badge above and go for it!   We have four sentences with blanks to fill in.    This week I’m letting my Mom have all the fun – I’m too busy napping.    Mom’s words are in RED.   

Go Mom go!

1. A past event that I would like to see in person is landing on the moon.

2. If I were a dog, my breed would be West Highland White Terrier (but in reality I love ALL dogs!).

3. If I came with a warning label, it would say the following: “Needs one cup of coffee in the morning to be hospitable”.

4. I would want to take a comfy hammock and sunscreen with me to a deserted island.

 

OK Mom – good job.    I was hoping you’d want to take ME to a deserted island but then I remembered how nice it is to have a nice cool house and cold water to drink.    Something tells me those would be in short supply on a deserted island.    Right?

Hope you all have a HAPPY FRIDAY……………………..!

Yep – that’s how I feel alright! 

Are there sinks on deserted islands?????

Love, Teddy
