Memories of Winter (2). So soon it came along with Christmas, and then it was gone. How the time flies past. My theory is the days are all the same which makes them fly by. A year in isolation and I still have all my marbles. I can show you the jar they are in if you want. Enjoy the memories of not so long ago.
No Fools Day April 1. No cat calendar today no foolin’! Just an assortment of random photos. Today we have Scooby with some stuffed dog friends–one who has his back turned, and Zeke using Scooby as a pillow! Here you also see me with my Tiger mask on–no fool I either! If you have to wear a mask, might as well make a statement with it! Get lots of response from it. I would have held up a Frosted Flakes cereal box but they were all eaten up. They were great! I was fully vaccinated in February for Covid.
Catio Nights: Early Edition. I looked back and it has been literally years since our series Catio Nights was on the air. I talked with the Editor and the Producer and the original cast agreed to return today for a new episode. Opie is not a member of the Catio Nights cast always preferring to enjoy the catio alone in the sunshine privately. No coaxing seems to change her mind. The early series was all shot not long after sunset. This episode was shot in the morning before sunrise. The attraction at this time is all the sleeping morning animals waking up. With no further adieu, let’s get on with it!
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. 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.Continue reading →
