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 and the Vacuum Revisited / Squirrel

Several years back I posted these videos of Scooby and the vacuum. Since there are plenty of new people browsing around the Feline Cafe–no masks required, I have posted these today to once again illustrate that Scooby likes the vacuum. He is a real annoyance as you can see trying to vacuum as he won’t even get out of the way for it. He likes to play with the wand as well. So there you have it– video and audio proof! No, he is NOT deaf! No matter how quietly you try to open a tin of cat food, he can hear it and come running out of a dead sleep! As a bonus, today I add a video of my clockwork squirrel on the dining room table. He goes much faster if he is wound up tighter, but I am afraid to break the spring. If you do not have audio working, you can hear the squirrel chew his nuts. His eyes used to roll around but alas no more!

I add yet another photo below of Scooby from Jan 4 2020 where he predicts what the year will be like for us all.
