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!

Love, Teddy

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!

Sunday Selfie Hop

It’s time to HOP!!    Sunday is selfie day and our friends at The Cat On My Head host this fun event every week.    If you’d like to show off your selfie, just click their badge above and join in the fun!

I’ve been showing my FLASHBACK SELFIES for a while now.    It’s fun to look back and see ME a year ago or even two years ago – I’m still the same ginger boy of course but maybe a little bigger than I used to be.    Let’s dip into the photo album and see what we’ve got shall we????

Mom!  How embarrassing!

This little gem is ME on April 14, 2017 – which was two months after I came to live with Mom and Dad.   I had discovered that my Mom spent a LOT of time at her computer so I hopped up on her desk (which is actually a drawing table) and tucked myself in behind the computer screen and SNOOZED.    The really funny thing is that I haven’t popped up into this spot for two years at least – I just grew too big to fit behind Mom’s computer!     What an embarrassing selfie Mom.   Maybe if you “ARTIFY” me it won’t be so bad Mom!    Here’s the LUNAPIC (“Beauty” filter) of this photo.    AND of course Mom made a jigsaw for those of you who like doing them.

Greetings fans of the Selfie Hop!    It’s time to hop like we do EVERY Sunday courtesy of our hosts, the Kitties Blue from The Cat On My Head.    We all have fun showing ourselves off on Sunday and today is no exception.   If you’d like to join in, just click their badge above and link up.   We’ll stop by to see your FINE SELF!!!    Thanks to our good friends at The Cat On My Head for hosting this Hop.

My Selfie is a FLASHBACK Selfie……………………from about this same time last year……………

This one was March 31, 2018.    Surprise – surprise – I’m asleep.   Belly up of course.   Some stuff just never changes does it?!    I’ve actually got a LOT of photos of me on this same quilt, in this same position, snoring just as loudly as I was on this occasion.    What can I say???    If it feels good – do it!

Yep – we have a puzzle of this one for those of you brave enough to want a puzzle on a Sunday………………good luck!!!

CLICK THIS MINI-ME PHOTO FOR THE PUZZLE!!

Oh –  before I go – I looked back TWO years ago at photos of me – are you ready?   I look like I’m about HALF the size I am now…………although it’s probably a whole lot LESS.   I probably weighed about 10 lbs. in these photos and had only lived here a little less than two months!

From March 31, 2017  – already a nap expert – a belly up fan – and learning the joys of sinks!!

Happy Sunday!   Love, Teddy

 

Sunday Selfie Hop

Standard

Time to HOP!    Sunday is Selfie Hop day with Kitties Blue.   You ought to join us – if you want to, click their badge above and go for it.    We’ll see you there.

Mom realized yesterday when she grabbed her camera to take a couple of photos of me that almost ALL MY PHOTOS are the same.    I’m either in the Granny Chair in the guest room, or on the floor with my belly up, or SOUND ASLEEP and she’s right!    Of course the fact that I won’t sit still (usually) long enough for her to take my photo MIGHT be part of the reason…….but then there’s the fact that I do sleep a lot to be considered.

Here’s the photo she took of me yesterday – technically it’s not a selfie because I didn’t take it MYSELF but I’ve delegated the responsibility to my Mom so that counts!

See what I mean though?   I must have shared a bazillion photos that look just like this with you……………From this chair I can see across the upstairs hall to Mom’s office where I can keep an eagle eye on her while she’s at her computer………..however, obviously right now my eagle eye (and the other one too) are CLOSED TIGHT while I sleep.

I know I’ve probably told you why we call that chair I’m in “THE GRANNY CHAIR” but I’ll tell you again anyway.   The chair itself belonged to my Dad’s Mom and when she went to the Bridge Dad got it.    The quilt on the back of the chair belonged to my Mom’s Mom and it was a wedding gift to her when she married my Mom’s Dad in 1947.    Perfectly good name for that chair would be THE GRANNY CHAIR right?

Happy Sunday!!!  

P.S.   Did you think I forgot to do a puzzle for you puzzlers?   No I didn’t – I was saving it for last…..AND I’m not telling you who or what the puzzle is of.   You’ll just have to GO FOR IT!    Ready?   Set?   Go!

Sunday St. Patrick’s Day Selfie!

Standard

It’s Sunday and time for the Selfie Hop.   I’m thinking we will see a WHOLE LOT OF Saint Patrick’s Day selfies today.    I’m going to do a couple of FLASHBACK Selfies because I enjoy seeing what I looked like a year or two ago on this same date (or as close as I can get!).   If you’d like to join in the hop hosted by my friends The Cat On My Head, just, click their badge up above and link up with us all for some Irish fun!

This is my selfie from March 16, 2017 – which was just a month or so after I was adopted – I look pretty comfy don’t I ????

Then a year later, March 16, 2018, this was me:

HOW EMBARRASSING!!!!!!    I was still getting drinks out of the guest bathroom sink – these days I get drinks from Mom’s master bathroom sink.   A sink is a sink is a sink I say – the water comes from the same place!   

Anyway, today I’m Teddy O’Kimmell, red-headed Irish boy from Virginia.    I’m a very happy boy.     Since neither of these OLD photos of me have even a tiny bit of Irish fun in them, Mom has decided to use my St. Patrick’s Day AVATAR from Cat Scouts to make a puzzle for your entertainment today.     If it drives you nuts putting it together – have a green beer on me!     To make it a REAL CHALLENGE, I’m not going to show you the photo the puzzle was made from!    That’s right – this ought to keep you occupied for a while.    Tee Hee

Have a great Saint Patrick’s Day everybody and the below prayer is from me and my Mom and Dad to each and every one of you – thank you for being our friends……….

Love, Teddy O’Kimmell

Happy Sunday!   Time to Hop!    The Kitties Blue host this Hop every Sunday and we ALL would love it if you would participate with us – just click their badge and add your info in the LINKY form and you’ll be showing off like us in no time.

Before I do my FLASHBACK Selfie for this Sunday, I invite you to leave a comment when you go to The Cat On My Head’s site to join the Hop – let them know you will be sending POTP and prayers to their littlest “Kitty Blue”, little Sawyer.   He had a HUGE bad seizure this past week and is continuing to recover.   He has a very bad seizure disorder for which he takes meds but they don’t totally stop seizures.    It had been four weeks since the last bad one in fact.   He’s home and recovering but just pop by and make him smile would you???

Meanwhile, I’m continuing to show flashback selfies from me LAST year at this time.    I really look the same – HUGE.    But it’s still fun to go back exactly (or almost exactly) a year and see ME.

Holy Cow…….this was me on January 20, 2018.    Still napping on Christmas tissue paper and still showing off my belly.   Mom turned it into some kind of artsy selfie back then and here’s the result of that little experiment!

I kinda like this effect whatever it was – I liked it so much I made a puzzle out of it for you puzzlers!    Just click the “MINI ME” below and you can “have your way with me” in puzzle form!!!!!

Before I go, here are the photos from the last snow we had a few days ago…….we may have more before today is out!

The first three are of the front yard and the last one is my back yard………………Yeah – not a whole lot of snow I admit but enough to keep me INSIDE that’s for sure!

Happy Sunday from Snowy Virginia!   Love Teddy

Hello everybody and Happy Sunday.    Today is Hop day……well one of the Hop days anyway.  This is the one where we all share our selfies with each other courtesy of our hosts, Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head.   Want to have fun with us?   Just click their badge above and go fill out the LINKY form.  Pretty easy.   Then you can visit all the other selfie hoppers.

Mom and Dad were away for Thanksgiving as you all know by now and when Mom came back I knew she’d been around ANOTHER KITTY.   However, I forgave her because the “other kitty” was my Cousin, Railey.   Railey lives with my Dad’s brother and his wife in Maryland.    Whenever her Mom and Dad go to their cabin in the mountains for any length of time, she gets to go along!   Lucky her because the cabin is very nice (not that I would know but Mom and Dad say it is!!).   Anyway, Mom snapped her picture as she was sitting patiently waiting for her dinner dish to arrive.    She’s a sweet kitty Mom says – a little shy but she obviously ADORES her Dad (my Dad’s brother)……………she follows him everywhere.     So HERE’S Railey strutting her selfie stuff!

Obviously Railey knows all about lasers………..she’s got some nice ones don’t you think?   I also think she has a rather magnificent set of stripes on her tail.   So say hello to my Cousin Railey won’t you!

Have a super Sunday everyone………………..

Hello Sunday Selfie Hoppers!    Time for us to take a peek at each other showing off on a Sunday.    This is thanks to our Hop Hosts, The Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head.   Are you ready to strut your stuff along with us?   Then click their badge above and join in by using the LINKY tool.   Easy right?

I’m doing a FLASHBACK Selfie again today.   This is the closest one to the same date one year ago.   I was getting chubby then but of course not quite at my FBW (full body weight) now.   Still, I don’t look like I am not getting enough food around here.

That photo was taken November 9, 2017.    Mom jazzed that photo up back then with a Lunapic filter………..so it turned out like this:

She doesn’t remember which filter it was but then again it doesn’t matter right?  I still look ORANGE and the oriental carpet still doesn’t look very oriental !!!   Would you like a puzzle of this one?????   OK – you asked for it!

Click the TINY selfie photo and do the puzzle if you dare!

 

Since today is the official BLOG BLAST FOR PEACE, we also did this special poster……………..and we mean it from the bottom of our hearts too…………..

 

HAPPY SUNDAY!!!

Here we are again!  Sunday!   Time for the Selfie Blog Hop hosted by Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head.    If you’re in the mood to show yourself off like WE are, just click the badge and fill out the linky form – WHAM BAM THANK YOU MAM you’re in!

I’ve been doing FLASHBACK Selfies for a few weeks now and having some fun going back a year ago – mostly to see how I’ve changed (like ten+ pounds or so!) ……. let’s see what I posted as my Sunday Selfie one year ago shall we????

Well this is the photo of me that Mom and I used for my Sunday Selfie on October 8, 2017.    Not QUITE a year ago but close enough.    The photo had actually been taken in February which was the month I was adopted by Mom and Dad.    Below is what Mom did to “fancy-fy” the photo with Lunapic back then:

And there you have it – my FLASHBACK SELFIE from a year ago.    I was one very happy kitty – can you tell?    As always, Mom made a jigsaw of this for those of you who enjoy doing them!   We all hope that you have a fabulous Sunday.    I’m gonna try to – actually I don’t have to try very hard – HAPPY just seems to be what I am almost ALLLLLLLL the time!!!

Click this “mini-me” photo to go to my Jigsaw Puzzle!!!  Good Luck!

WOO HOOOOO!!!!   Sunday is here and all of us get to do a selfie to share with the universe courtesy of our hosts the Kitties Blue!    Wanna join us?  Good- just click on the badge above and do it.   Then you’ll be one of the in crowd.   Tee Hee

My selfie today is a FLASHBACK.    Not that I have a lot of years behind me to flash back on but Mom didn’t have any NEW photos of me so we’re flashing back to the Sunday Selfie we did on September 17th last year………MY HOW I’VE GROWN!    hahahaha

The fact of the matter is that even though Mom used this photo as my Selfie in September of 2017, this photo was taken about a week after I was adopted from the shelter by my parents in February, 2017.   I was still in the “am I the luckiest kitty in the world to live here or not?!” stage.   The answer of course was YES YOU ARE – but here I am lounging on Angel Sammy’s favorite fleece blankie and no doubt I was dreaming about him – wishing I’d known him.    Now here’s what Mom did to that perfect fine photo of me to “artify” it up for that Selfie.    I prefer THE un-artsy version above myself!

You need sunglasses to look at this Mom!   What were you thinking?    Well, if you’re inclined to want to do a puzzle – I did one for you but something tells me it would be frustrating other than around the border.   Know what I mean?    Who’s for FRUSTRATION this Sunday?   Here you are:

Just click the mini-photo and have fun!

Speaking of Fun – Have a FUN Sunday!   

Love, Teddy
