Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

 I try to have my flashbacks going from old to new and have been using the old original blog. I am trying to use slightly newer posts (2008) from this blog but it scrolls back to 2011 then flies back to the latest posts. I have given up and will just go back as far as I can. This one is from June 2012 and is called:

Walking with Dad.

The rain stopped for a while so the Beans asked if we wanted to go for a walk. Of course we did so we let dad lead the way.

Come on dad, why have you stopped?

He said it was starting to rain again and did we want to go back.

Eric: I thought about it.

Flynn: I had a quick bath.......

and then we were ready.

It wasn't a very long walk but it was better than nothing.

Eric: What do you mean, it's too wet for a BBQ?

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art

 This flashback comes from October 2007

One side of our garden has a high hedge but the other side had an ordinary hedge which we could jump over. That meant mum had to keep stopping what she was doing to make sure we hadn't wandered off, or worse still, we had to stay indoors until she took us for a walk. Dad decided to take the hedge down and build the Purrizen Fence. Now we can stay in the garden all day and mum calls us in when she goes to bed.


Yoo mite be wondering where the nice hedge that has lots of mousies living in it has gone. Well dad got a big masheen and it ate it. Cuz there wuz nuffin there after the masheen eatid it, dad had to build a fence to keep us in. It's like a purrizzin.

What's this ladder doing here?

I better go up and haf a look and see what's out the uvver side

Hmmphhh nuffin diffrunt than yooshull, mite as well go back down.

Well if yoo had a look, I'm going to haf a look too.

Can't see ennyfing at all.

That's better, now I can see.Dad sed he built this big fence so we can stay in the garden all day if we want, and mum won't haf to keep watching us all the time. It's ok cuz she's still going to take us furr walks around the feelds too.

Did yoo see that skeery pikchur yesterday? There is a ghost living in our fence. Mum sez it is watching us to make sure we are good boys. Yoo bet we are going to be good!!

Friday flashback and Caturday Art.

This week it is a selection of one photo posts.

Flynn, Mancat Monday 17.11.08

When our Beans were on their Holly Days, all our toys were put in purrizen with us. When they came back, mum put all our toys in the toy box to bring them back indoors. She just threw them all in together. That's right, she just mixed them all up with not a thought to us. I had to tip all the toys out to see what had happened. Can you guess what I was looking for?

Ahh here it is, my most faveritist nippy carrot. A mancat needs his nip. Eric can't find his scruffy rat. He's very upset cuz he's had it since he wuz a babycat. Mum sez it has to be in the garage somewhere and he must haf hidden it. He told her he did hide it but he can't remember where, so she said she will help him look.

Eric, Tummy Tuesday 9.09.08

Surprise surprise! It's raining yet again. I came in this morning all soaking wet, so mum got the towel and dried me. She called me Spike cuz my furrs were all standing up and pointy.
I think I will spend the rest of the day on the bed unless it stops raining.
You can look at my toesies as well as my tummy if you want to. They are clean today because when I came in from the Outdoors, they were full of mud, and mum said,'If you think you are going to bed in that state, you can think again Eric.' She very kindly cleaned my toesies for me after she had rubbed me down with the towel. I only put the bitey on her once!

Flynn, Easy on Sunday 22.02.09

Wake me up when you've got my breakfast would ya.

Eric, Easy on Sunday 28.09.08
I am making the most of the dry weather by sitting outdoors on my chair. It's supposed to rain again next week.

For Eric I used Fantasy at 60%, then added Watercolour at 50%

For Flynn it was Metallic at 45%, then Sunshine at 60%.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

I thought there wasn't going to be a flashback this week. This morning there was no internet and apparently it had been down since 1am. It came back around 8 pm this evening so now I am able to get the post ready for tomorrow. 

If I hadn't been able to do it, it would have been the first Friday I had missed since Eric left us in 2013.

Obviously I haven't been able to do any commenting on Thursday, but I may be able to catch up on a few during Friday.

This week Eric has the main post and it comes from August 2008.

My Scruffy Rat!

When we were kittens, one of our very first toys was a black rat. I told Flynn it was mine, and it was and still is my most favourite toy in the whole world. I call him Scruffy Rat, but I don't think mum knows his name because she calls him Fred Bear. Silly mum, surely she can see he's not a bear.

I like to chew him and bunnykick him. It's lots of fun.

He doesn't look much like a rat any more. Most of his black furrs have gone, and one ear and both eyes, and all his stuffing is coming out, but I still love him. Mum bought some new black mousies that looked like Scruffy when he was new, but they aren't my Scruffy Rat and no way am I going to play with them.

And a one photo post for Flynn from January 2009.
My Box.

I found the box, that means it's mine, and Eric wouldn't fit anyway.

I used Monet at 70% for Eric.

Flynn,  Abstract at 50 %. All a bit rushed so no trying different filters together this week.
