Sunday Selfies Hop

Standard

Hippity Hop

Happy Sunday!    Today is Selfies day.    This Hop is hosted by our friends the Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head and it makes Sunday our day to STRUT our STUFF!    Post your selfie along with ours by clicking their badge above and completing the LINKY form……….just like that – you’re IN THE HOP!

Mom took this photo of me lounging at the bottom of the stairs WAITING not very patiently for her to come down, put my harness on me and take me outside for a cruise.   Lots of squirrels and especially skinks out there to hunt or spy on and time’s a-wasting Mom!    That’s why I’ve got my lasers on – to help her locate me since my coloring kind of matches the flooring.   HAHA

I’m showing you the before and after versions…………..Mom jazzed up the before with Lunapic of course and that’s how we got the brilliant stripes on my after.

Come to think of it, I look just a little SPOOKY in that second photo don’t I ???    Well, trust me, I look way scarier than I am!

Have a very “un-scary” Sunday everybody!  See you at the Hop!

Love, Teddy

EXTRA EXTRA – IMPAWTANT NOTICE!!

Did you know tomorrow is HUG YOUR CAT DAY????  Well it is!!!!

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

Time for the THANKFUL THURSDAY Hop, hosted by my friend Brian.   We get together via the Hop on Thursdays and talk about how thankful we are for WHATEVER – if you think about it, I know that we ALL have things we’re thankful for.   If you’d like to join in the Hop – click Brian’s badge above and join in.

I don’t have a specific thing to be thankful for this week but I do believe in expressing my thankfulness every single day.   Mom and I have quiet time in the morning together before Dad gets up and one of the things we always do is say a little prayer of thanks for BEING HERE and having a quiet and peaceful life in a comfy home with friends and family.   It’s easy to take things like that for granted.   We hope we NEVER EVER do that.

I’m also thankful that my Angel brother Sammy got through with his wi-fi connection to transmit his Thursday poem to us!    A Thursday without poetry from him AND without reading everyone else’s photo challenge poetry just wouldn’t be as fun!

Here’s what I got from Sammy overnight……….

♥♥♥

Hello everyone………it’s Thursday again and time to share some poetry.   I hope you decided to participate this week whether you’ve written a poem before or not.   It’s a fun thing to do and I try to make it a challenge by giving you a photo every week to use as “inspiration” for your poetry!    So far everyone who is writing a poem is doing an amazing job.    We have some REAL poets out there in blog land and happily some of them are our blog followers. 

So, in case you need to see last week’s photo that I gave you to write a poem from, here it is again, followed by my poem.

“Cat Pals”

by Angel Sammy Kimmell    May 31, 2018

 

Buddies and pals can be quite fun

Having two or three can be more fun than ONE

Someone to play with, or sleep with or cuddle

It’s hard to play football when you’re alone in the huddle!

If something goes wrong, your pal can be there

They can give reassurance, or comb out your hair!

Or clean out your ears, or lick food off your face

Pals don’t want their friends to look like a disgrace!

But some animals are fine being the one and only

If you’ve always been “just one” then you can’t feel lonely

If our humans play with us and talk to us and stuff

Being on our own in the household is not really tough!

We get all the attention, all the treats, all the toys

We can be just as happy, and just as full of real joy

But if one day my humans decide to get me a pet

You’d better believe it’s a CAT they would get !  

 

My Dad was always a dog guy before he met my Mom…………Mom quickly converted him to a cat guy………..and I have to say, both Teddy and I are happy that happened !!

SO, I bet you’re anxious to see the photo that I have for you for NEXT week – but I have to say first that I’m hoping you wrote a poem for TODAY with the kitty photo.  Did you?  If so, tell us in comments and give us your blog link so we can READ it OR if you want, write your poem in our comments to share.  

Here’s your challenge photo for NEXT Thursday!

This will be a fun one don’t you think?????   We’ll share what we all come up with next Thursday.   Until then, I will remind you that I am THANKFUL you are our friends.   I’m also THANKFUL if you take up the challenge to express your creativity with a poem – I can promise you it’s not as hard as you might think it is.   

Until next week, I’m sending you all Heavenly Hugs from the Rainbow Bridge…………….

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

Hugs, Angel Sammy

♥♥♥

 

Well I can’t top that – so I will just say – see you next Thursday for Thankful and Poetic Thursday!

Love, Teddy

 

Memorial Sunday Selfie Blog Hop

Standard

Memorial Day Weekend

 

Hopping Along on Sunday With Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head

It’s Sunday which means selfie time!   Our host, “The Cat On My Head” has a wonderful blog hop on Sunday where we can post a selfie and share it!    All you have to do if you want to join us is click on their badge above and fill out the LINKY form – the we can visit you and see how you’re looking this fine FINAL Sunday of May.

Mom did her usual Lunapic “thing” to my selfie………and as I usually am, I was asleep when she snapped it.    With Lunapic she added the “CREEPY” effect, then she added a butterfly frame with Pizap.   Thanks Mom for making it look like I’m dreaming about butterflies – I like them a lot!

Here’s how it turned out………..not too shabby huh?   Looks like a big quilt to me!    A quilted kitty lying on a quilt.    Hope you all have a magnificent Sunday on this 3 day weekend Memorial Day holiday.   Please think about what Memorial Day really is all about…………we know Memorial Day is tomorrow but we’re making it a TWO DAY holiday at my house.

It’s about remembering and honoring all those who serve or have served their country.   All the men and women who helped keep their country strong and free.   For me, this is thinking about my Mom’s father whose photo I see every day when I’m keeping Mom company in her office – also the American flag in a case which she cherishes that was given to her family when her Dad was buried at Arlington Cemetery in 1992.    I didn’t know him but I wish I had…….We’ll be thinking of you this weekend and always Grandpa.

Mom With Her Dad In His Uniform

This is my Grandpa two years before he went to the Bridge, escorting my Mom down the aisle when she married my Dad!

Have a special day of remembering today and tomorrow……………

 

Hugs, Teddy

 

 

Sunday Selfie

Standard

Sunday Selfie Blog Hop time with the Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head!    Every Sunday we join in the fun of showing off our “fine selves” at the Hop.    This is no exception.    If you want to join us please do – just click their badge above and join with the LINKY TOOL.   Easy Peasy.

My photo this Sunday was jazzed up by my Mom with Lunapic – using the “Frida” art effect.   The photo is just a little embarrassing – YES sometimes I am too lazy to stand up while I’m having my “SINK DRINK” so I have a lie down while I slurp my water from the faucet.   So what?   I wasn’t feeling very perky when this photo was taken.   I just didn’t have enough energy to stand or squat!

Here’s the”before Lunapic” version:

And here’s the FANCY SHMANCY version!

Gee that sink water tastes mighty fine!    Speaking of mighty fine – I hope your Sunday is just that………………….!

Love and Hugs, Teddy

Friendly Fill-Ins Friday!

Standard

Oh boy!   Fill-In Friday is here……………..this is a fun Blog Hop that you can join in if you want to – it’s co-hosted by Annie of McGuffy’s Reader and Ellen of 15andMeowing and you can go to McGuffy’s to join up if you click the badge above!    What is the hop all about?    Well, our co-hosts EACH give us two sentences with blanks in them and all we have to do is fill in the blanks however we want………..what happens?   We learn a lot of new stuff about each other.  Cool right?

I’m going to fill in the blanks ALL BY MYSELF this week……………….Mom said I could………………..and my own words will be in BLUE so you can tell it’s ME ME ME talking!

 

1. When I am nervous, I run for the basement – it’s my safe spot in the house!

2. When I am angry, I won’t look my Mom or Dad in the face – I look away so it’s more like a BIG POUT!.

3. Today, I know for sure that Mom is taking me to the vet at 9:40AM – she doesn’t think I know but I heard her call to make the appointment – I haven’t been eating well or drinking enough water (so she says)!

4. For St. Patrick’s day, I am going to Ireland with the Cat Scouts (virtually of course) **

**Mom says she’d fill in this sentence with “I am making corned beef and cabbage with potatoes in the crockpot” !

 

So there you have it – my Friday fill-ins are done!     That was easy peasy………………..you should join us – it’s fun every week.
