Happy Independence Day!



Happy 4th !

It’s a big day for our country and for those of us who are patriotic up to our eyebrows, like me and my Mom, we’re happy to be living in the home of the brave and the land of the free.   We also remember WHY we can celebrate another birthday for our country.   We’re forever proud and pleased to be here!

What are we doing to celebrate?  Not much!   No big parties, no big fireworks display, no big celebrations at my house anyway………….Mom and Dad plan to grill burgers outside if it’s not raining, and have a quiet evening at home.   We’re not much on BANG, BOOM, ZOOM  fireworks…………we’ll just watch TV and hopefully get a good night’s sleep when everyone else stops shooting off their fireworks!


We are also celebrating the day at Tabby Cat Club if you want to visit and see how much fun we’re having!   Just Click HERE!

Now get out there and enjoy your day……………………………celebrate the 4th in whatever way you want……………..you’re FREE to do that here you know!

Independence Day Teaser Tell All!


Hi Peeps!  And to all my USA fans, from my family to yours:


Here’s how Mom decorated our house for Independence Day……

Past the flag colored windsock in the oak tree towards the front porch!

On the front porch is that shiny, flappy, noisy flag banner thing she gets out for all “patriotic occasions” around here!  After she took this shot she added a big red/white/blue bow to the porch post…..

Sam And The July Fourth Banner

I’m already wondering if it will be noisy with fireworks around here tonight or quiet because everyone has gone to the BIG fireworks in Washington, DC.  I promise I won’t complain either way though because I’m a PATRIOTIC KITTY!

Now onward to the OTHER part of this blog post which is the Tuesday Teaser Tell All!

Here’s the photo again:

I’m happy to say some of you recognized this to be BUDAPEST, HUNGARY!  YAY!

My parents were at the last stop on their cruise of the Danube River which started in Prague and ended in Budapest.  This shot was taken from the top deck of the ship as they arrived in Budapest EARLY one morning.  Once the ship docked they had breakfast on board then they went ashore and walked through the shopping district BUT it was too early for the shops to be open!  Soon there were shopkeepers putting displays out, setting up tables and chairs in the cafes, and the place got crowded with people.  My parents bought some Christmas decorations, Mom got a beautiful scarf for herself, and they got two small framed paintings of Budapest (which are on the vacation photo wall which I’ll show you one day in another blog!).   The next morning the tour company took everybody to the airport in Budapest where EVENTUALLY they departed for Prague, then London, then home to ME!  But not before they had some excitement in the airport in Budapest – – – there was a bomb scare!  EEEK!  Needless to say, someone had just left a suitcase behind accidentally in the security area but talk about confusion (plus nobody spoke English!)……

But enough of that story – wanna know who guessed right?

Concatulations to everyone who guessed right……it was NOT an easy guess either as there weren’t a lot of hints.  BRAVO – I bet you’re already looking forward to next Tuesday – right??

Happy Independence Day USA’ers and Happy Wednesday to ALL!
