Friday Flashback, 13th Blogoversary and Caturday Art.

Tomorrow, 20th July will be our 13th blogoversary. I wish the boys were here to carry it on, but I do my best to keep their memory alive and will continue to do so.
Our very first post is here for anyone who is interested in reading it.

This week the flashback comes from December 2012 and is called, "Sunshine"

 The rain has stopped for a few days and it is nice to get out in the sun.

 Nomming the grass again,

 Breathing in all those nice fresh smells.

 Wondering if your brother is going to pounce on you as he walks up behind you. I don't call him humpa lumpa for nothing.
 Yes, this is the life. The only trouble is......

We have to walk back over the nasty icy grass to get back to the fire.

Friday Flashback, Caturday Art and Gifts.

Before this week's flashback I wanted to show some of the lovely gifts we were given last week. I am sure there are many of you who remember Ginger Jasper. They no longer blog but we have been good friends for 9 or 10 years now.
Carol and Barrie came down from Yorkshire last week to stay with us and we all had a wonderful time taking them to various places in Devon and Cornwall.
They know someone local to them who makes garden art from old tyres and they brought these for us:
An Eric and Flynn planter.

It even has Flynn's facial markings.

They bought plants the next day when we were out and about to put in it.
We love it, it is so different.


They also brought a flower with ladybirds which is now on the fence.
Now for the flashback which comes from September 2012 and is called:
Hide and Seek.


Flynn is hiding from me.

But I know where he is.

Wheeeee! Here I come!

Yikes! I'm out of here!

I used the penultimate photo and zoomed in on it. You can see from the original that Eric was moving fast and was blurry.
I started with Landscape at 50%, then added scribble at 35% finishing with Watercolour at 45%
Of course there is also a puzzle.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

Today's flashback comes from September 2012 and is called:

A Windy Day.
Eric:  It was a windy day but we decided to go and check out the barn.
Dad's tractor was in there. I like to sit on the seat but the door was shut.
Flynn was sniffing to see if there were any mousies about.
There weren't any so we walked up beside the barn where it was sheltered from the wind.
It was nice and sunny though so we didn't really mind our fur being blown inside out.
I had a sniff around the bottom of the purrison hedge because an introoder comes under here at night. Mum thinks it may be a rat but we aren't going to tell her.
Nothing to see there so we are moving on again.
Flynn:  Wait! I thought I heard a mousie!
Eric:  Yes, I heard a noise too but I think it is only the wind blowing through the grass.
That Pandora is watching me again. She wants to chase me. You can't see it in this picture, but there is an electric fence between her and us.
Oh listen! I think I hear dad on the little tractor.
He's bringing back more wood to store for the winter. There is a big wood pile in the barn.
Oh well, nothing more to see now. May as well go back and get some food.
Good idea Eric. Let's go!

I started with Quirky at 50% then Monster at 30%. I like the way it exaggerated Flynn's tail stripes.
And of course a puzzle.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the flashback comes from September 2012 and is called:
The Badger Hole
Flynn: I'm taking a walk in the field but dad has gone to look at something. I wonder what it is.

Wow! Who put this big pile of earth in the middle of the field?

I am sniffing to see if there are any clues.

There is a deep hole here which wasn't here before. Dad said a badger has dug it out. I better keep guard on it.
Eric: I better see what Flynn and dad have found.

I wonder if I can see anything in here.

Huh! Mum won't let me look in there so I will rub my smell onto the earth instead.

Oops! I rolled over. Never mind, rolling in the earth will make my fur nice and soft.

One picture each for the boys again this week.
As usual I used Lunapic and for Flynn I started with Lily at 50% then Flow at 60%.

For Eric I started with Fairy at 55% then Tuscany at 65%.
Two pictures = two puzzles!
