Sunday Selfie

Sunday Selfie Time!

YAY!  It’s Sunday!  Time to show ourselves off!   Every weekend we start our Sunday morning’s entertainment by visiting our fellow Blog Hoppers who are doing selfies.   This is a GREAT Blog Hop hosted by our buddies and pals the Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head.    If you’d like to play along and show your selfie, just click their badge above and use the LINKY tool – fill it out – and you’re hopping along with us.

Mom and I were out for a yard cruise day before yesterday and she snapped some shots of yours truly in my harness…………looking around the front yard for deer tracks, rabbit poop, bugs, WHATEVER has been “left” there for me to find.   I didn’t find anything but I heard a squirrel and that’s why I look READY TO RUN in this photo!    Mom “dolled me up” with Lunapic again – used an effect called “REDBLUSH” – perfect for a ginger isn’t it?

Here’s the “original”

Sure is a cool effect……….did some strange things to the grass (which needs to be cut) and my furs…………..and kinda neat how it highlighted my leash too.   Anyway, that’s it for this Sunday’s ARTWORK-SELFIE!

A reminder for everyone that we are NOT having a Teaser this week so that means no Pre-Tease Monday.   My Mom and Dad are taking a little break – we will have blogs this week but no Teaser since Mom has to be at the computer to “manage” that one on Tuesdays!!!!    I know you’ll miss the Teaser but we’ll be back the following week with our usual SCHEDULE of PROGRAMMING!  HAHAHAHAHA

Love, Teddy

 

 

My Birthday Selfie

♥♥♥

Happy New Year!

Welcome to my little celebration of a new year, and an old cat…..well, I WOULD have been old if I had lived until today because today would have been my 17th birthday.    I’m going to celebrate it anyway even though I’m at the Rainbow Bridge, and I invite you to partake of a bit of New Year’s Day breakfast with me as we break in the new year.

This picture of me is going to be my Sunday Selfie with the Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head………and after you’ve had some breakfast, you can head on over to their blog by clicking on their badge to join in the hop OR see all the other photos being posted today!

Now, won’t you head on over to the buffet line, help yourself to whatever your heart desires, then have a seat and enjoy your first meal of the new year?    I’m serving a couple of old Southern traditional New Year’s Day items that my Mom INSISTED we have – black-eyed peas and cornbread!   They are supposed to bring you GOOD LUCK so even if you’re not crazy about black-eyed peas (I love them with lotsa butter!), take a few – we need all the luck we can get in the new year I think, don’t you?

If there’s something you’d like that’s not on the buffet – just ask and I’ll see that you get it……………….!

I do hope you enjoy pigging out with me on this first day of a brand new year……………..and even though I didn’t QUITE make it to 17 – I’m definitely here in spirit – with you – my best buddies and pals.   What more could a guy ask for?    Well, maybe PEACE for the world in this new year – yeah – that’s what I’d ask for.

With Lots of Love,

Angel Sammy

P.S.   Our sweet friend Nellie From Nellie On The Edge spent some time at the vet and was oh so very sick……she’s home and resting now but needs POTP and prayers.  Since she couldn’t go out and party for New Years (she is the ultimate party girl you know!) I decided to whisk her away to the Cat Scouts New Year’s Eve party for JUST ONE DANCE….didn’t want to tire her out but wanted to give her a brief night on the town.   Here we are!   Please stop by her blog and give her your HUGS.   She could use them for sure………….

New Years Eve Bacon

57

A New Year……BUT

Bacon will still ring out the old year

before it rings in the new!

BACONDAYBADGELAYLA

It sure is – even if that Caturday is New Year’s Eve!

BACONPILE

One must make sure that before one indulges in a New Year’s Eve NIPTINI, one has FOOD in one’s tum.

BACONBEG4

Then we will all be praying that the new year coming continues to be bountiful in the bacon department.

BACONDOCTOR

After all, two out of three vets highly recommend bacon for their patients – US!

BACONMEMETOBY

And we all know that BACON truly does make every single thing BETTER including New Year’s Eve!

SO…… what are you waiting for?

Let the begging BEGIN!!!!!

Here’s to a happy, healthy 2017!

Love, Angel Sammy

P.S.   Tomorrow, January 1, 2017 would have been my 17th birthday.   Since I’m now a Rainbow Bridge Angel, I’m not having a big par-tay to celebrate…..instead, I’m inviting everyone to stop by and have a New Year’s Day birthday breakfast with me…..no party hats and balloons – just a good old breakfast buffet complete with bacon (of course).   We’ll just start the new year off EATING……..TOGETHER………like the good friends that we are!

Hello everybody!   Thanks to all of you who stopped by yesterday to join in the Post-New-Year’s-Eve/Sweet Sixteen Birthday party because it was absolutely tons of fun.   For me and I think for everyone…………….so many people came by I was just plain overwhelmed!    Not too overwhelmed to share a few more things about the day though……..like for instance this from my buddy and pal Raz at Friends Furever!

Falling Leaves Friday!

FALLBANNER

Fall continues to fall here!

That’s right – the leaves are coming down like rain these past two days……..just enough breeze to blow them down from their spots on all the big trees around our house – I can’t even go outside in my own yard without getting bopped on the head by falling leaves!   I guess it could be worse……..those acorns falling are a lot more painful when they hit my ginger head than leaves are that’s for sure.

Here’s how things look around here……….

Fall2014-2 FallYard2

We are nowhere near “peak” color though so I’ll show more photos as we march further into Fall.  I hope it’s pretty where you are!

I spent time on my porch this morning – it was chilly!

OK Mom....that's enough outside time for now.....

OK Mom….that’s enough outside time for now…..

Won’t be long before Mom will have to bring some of the houseplants that have lived on the front porch INSIDE for the winter – in fact we might get our first frost this weekend – EEEEK.

Also pretty soon Mom will be working on decorating our front porch for Sam-O-Ween…………we like to do something different every year………….here’s a couple of “oldies” – this year Mom bought some of that stuff that looks like a BIG spider web.  Can’t wait to see what she does with that

We want to take a minute to wish my friend Raz and Allie’s Mom Miss Sharon from FRIENDSFUREVER a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY today!

SHARONBIRTHDAY

Tomorrow is my BACON day so I’ll be busy celebrating that you can just BET on it!

See you then?
