Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the flashback comes from May 2008 when a prize arrived after we did an April Fool blog swap with lots of other bloggers.
* The link to Angus Mhor's blog was in the original post but I have removed it as it has been taken over by some tattoo site. The other link is okay.

April Fool's Prize

On April Fool's day some of us swapped blogs to confoose efurrycat. Angus Mhor* did it too, and had a compytishun at the same time. He put a rapping riddle on the blog he wuz posting from to see if anycat could guess who he wuz. We wuz the only ones who guessed right and he sent us a purrize.

Flynn:  Hmmm what haf we got here? I need to have a good look in this box.

Oh yummy Greenies, I like Greenies, and they are Eric's faverits. We can't get them in the Yookay. Look there's Dairy Temtayshuns too. That is my most faverit flavour in the whole world, and we can't get that type in the Yookay either.

There's furry round fings too wiv real fluffy fev-vers, just like baby fev-vers.They look like good fun furr playing wiv.

Eric:  Hey Flynn, what you got there? You didn't tell me we got a package.

Wow!!!! Greenies!!!! I love Greenies. Fanks Angus that is my most faveritist treats of all. And baby fev-vers yummy.

Better have a sniff of the box, it might make a good bed furr me.

Maybe not, it's a bit of a tight fit furr my mancatly booty.

Flynn:  Well Eric we got some good stuff here haven't we. Fanks Angus furrom both of us. You made a good choice of goodies.

The random photo this week was chosen by Tybe from the Canadian Cats. She asked for 29th January 2005. That was pre digital and I never dated my photos properly back then. I have done the next best thing and have 29.01.06 instead. Hope that is okay, Tybe.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week I have two very short posts from May 2008. 

I can hear rustling noises. It's too loud to be a mousie. I fink it might be Eric but I can't see him.
Hehe if I just lie here quietly, Flynn will never find me in the long grass. I can have a nice peaceful snooze.

Mancat Monday.

I am the mighty mancat hunter. I am stealthy while I wait in my jungle for my prey. I stand motionless, barely breathing, just listening and watching and waiting. I am patient, I have all day........

Then along comes Eric stomping through the grass, sneezing as he sniffs the pollen from the flowers. Oh well, I suppose there's always tomorrow.

The random photo this week was 13th June with no specified year and was chosen by Meezer's Mews and Terrieristical Woofs.
We are usually on a cruise around that date and the only year I have photos for then was 2007. I didn't have any of them together so have two individual photos.
I call them Grumpy Face and Poser Face and I think you can work out for yourself which is which.

For Flynn I used Gorky 60% then Metallic at 30%

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

 This week I have two posts which although originally posted almost three weeks apart go well with each other.

17th May 2008 In the Greenhouse.

Eric: We both like it in the greenhouse cuz it is always warm even when it rains. I like drinking out of the watering can the best as well. It tastes much better than ordinary water.
We help mum in here by digging up all the earth furr her, but she duzn't like it much when we use it as a litterbox.
Can you see Flynn? He's napping in the big plant pot. Mum put a lot of weeds in it, then we started sleeping in it so she put some hay in it to make it comfy. She sez it will soon haf to be moved cuz she wants to start planting her tomatoes in here. Maybe she will leave a corner furr us to sleep in it.

Flynn: This is a nice nap spot. I yooshully sleep here during the day, then Eric sleeps in here at night until we haf to go indoors to go to bed. I don't want mum to move it.

15th June 2008  Thanks Mum.

Do you remember the great big plant pot we found in the greenhouse? Mum had put weeds and cut grass in it to throw away. We decided it was a good place furr napping but only one of us could get in at a time.Mum told us not to get too attached to it cuz it wuz soon going outdoors so she could put her tomato plants growing in the greenhouse.

Well, she didn't take it out, but she put another one in there as well, and put nice sweet horse hay in there furr us to sleep on. Look we have one each. We wuz hoping she wouldn't plant her tomatoes too quick.

Look what she did! She left our big plant pots furr us to nap in, and planted her tomatoes around them. That means we can come in here all summer and nap if we want to. Fanks mum, just make sure you don't water us when you water the tomatoes.

The Random photo this week was chosen by Katie Isabella who asked for 29.05.12.
I try to match the photo date with the month I post it.
The boys are relaxing in the shade after a long walk around the fields.

I am joining Athena, the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art and using the random photo.

I started with Fairy at 30% then Beauty 40%.

I then tried with Deep Dream Generator. I never have much success with that but after the 4th attempt was reasonably happy with the result. I haven't a clue what I ended up doing, but here it is.
