Opie says No to Snow

Opie says No to Snow. She made a big fuss for me to open the window leading to the catio. I didn’t want to let all that cold air in but she made a song and dance about it, so I relented. I knew she wouldn’t like it and I was right. One look out there was enough to bring her into the house and look at me as if it were my fault it was cold outside. So she settled down on my computer chair just for spite. Hopefully the snow is gone for the rest of this Winter and the “snow cat” blogs will be over.

Another Happy Valentine’s Day

Another Happy Valentine’s Day! Or at least it would be if my “valentine” and I were together. Today I decided to repost some of my father’s valentines which he had saved. After he died I found a large collection of cards in a box he saved as a child from different holidays. Valentines were the most numerous by far. These run from 1917 to 1928 but most are from the early 1920’s. None have envelopes. I knew some of the relatives whose names are on the cards. Some of the other valentines may be the only artifacts left behind on earth to show someone lived. Due to technical WordPress difficulties, this is not the entire set, but it is a large representative sample. If you haven’t seen them I hope you enjoy them, and have a great wonderful Valentine’s Day all you very lucky couples out there! Over 60+ valentines are shown below.

Scooby the Snow Cat

Scooby the Snow Cat. Everyone should know by now that Scooby is a snow cat. He likes going outside in the snow. When he finally comes inside he finds a nice warm spot and goes to sleep. This is the beginning of a big winter storm moving west to east across the United States. More snow is falling as I write this. Fortunately we have all we need and just sit inside enjoying the view. Looks like what Christmas should have looked like. I still have my Christmas cards stuck on the wall! Think I’ll leave them up.

Zeke and Baby Yoda

Zeke and baby Yoda

Zeke and baby Yoda. As the years go by the cats attach themselves to different toys and animals. Puff the magic dragon is on the out and lately baby Yoda is “IN”. Looks like Zeke needs a cuddle buddy here in this photo. He and Scooby do not get this close, and Opie is “out of the question”! He is very happy here with Yoda.
