Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

When looking for this week's flashback I found another meme. this one came May 2007 and was called:
Favourites Meme.

We were tagged by Mr. Hendrix for our favourites meme. We went and sat on the grass and had a think about it. We agreed on everything except the first one, so we decided to do it between us.
Time of day:
Eric: Bedtime cuz I get to sit on dad's head.
Flynn: 2am cuz that's the time I like to get unner the kwilt and stick my claws in mum's tummy.
Day of week:
Sunday cuz dad's home as well as mum and we get to do lots of playing.
Season of year:
Summer cuz yooshully we get to stay out in the garden all day and help mum.
Christmas cuz we get prezzunts and help the Beans unwrap theirs.
What's that?
Ennyfing from Cats. The Beans went to see it in London several years ago and said it wuz grate. Well it should be if it's about cats.
Pansies. Mum had some in her borders for the winter and we kept pouncing on them. We won, we deaded them!
Ennyfing that's got fev-vers, fishies or uvver pounceable animals in it
We don't watch soaps, but mum watches Coronation Street.
Water, we won't touch milk, oh and toona joose.
Never had froot but we will haf to try nanners.
Temtayshuns, speshully Dairy.
Gourmet Pearl. It used to be Sheba, but that's our sekkund faverit now.
Never been to one, but we keep asking the Beans to bring us back a kitty bag.
We tag: Beezer, China Cat and Oscar, the puppycat.

Also, my random photo this week was suggested by Manx Mnews and was 1st July 2006 as that would have been Angel Abby's 7th birthday.
I couldn't find one for the 1st, but this one comes from the 2nd July 2006.

I am joining Athena, the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art and used the photo at the top of the post.

I started with Metallic at 50% then Flow at 30% to bring some colour back to it.
Of course there is a puzzle.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the flashback comes from May 2007 is called:
Scary Monster!

Aarrrggghhhh I've just seen a monster!!. Flynn come and look. Flynnnnnnnnn where are you, come quickly.

What's the matter Eric, what do you want?
Oh Flynn you're the monster. I didn't know what it was.

Go on Eric, it's safe, you go and have a look.

Well if you're sure I'll stick my head in and have a look.I recognise what it is now. It's those funny masks some of the horsies wear to keep the flies out of their eyes.
You have to admit you did look scary though Flynn.

Last week I said I would do a random photo a week if you gave dates starting from 2006.
Well, one thing I found out, my early filing of digital photos was a shambles!
I found photos from 2005 in the 2006 folder and many others filed under the wrong date. I didn't even remember that I had a digital camera before 2006, so now know what I will be spending time doing while we are on lock down.
I did get some dates from you and I will publish one a week in  chronological order. If I don't have a photo taken on that date I will use the nearest date to it.
This week 8.02.06 was requested by Dai$y from the Trout Towne Tabbies
The nearest date I have to that is 6.02.06

Flynn playing in the papers 6th February 2006.

None of the above photos was suitable for the art so I found another random photo from 2005 to use.

Helping to unpack the shopping!
I started with Van Gogh5 at 45%, added Gaugain3 at 35% then finished with Metallic at 40%
And the puzzle!

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art

In May 2007 the boys were tagged for 7 Random Facts so I thought I would repeat that post. I have left it in the original Catspeak.

We have been tagged by Obi furrom Forty Paws, China Cat and Chase.
Here are the rules. Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write on their own blog about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to read your blog!
We haf racked our brains to come up wiv seven facts each.

1. When the Beans are in bed, I like to sleep on dad's head wiv my paw on mum's head.
2. My faverit game is rolled up silver paper. When it is thrown furr me, I pick it up and bring it back to be thrown again.
3. I love water. I will play with it furr hours.
4.If I'm hungry, I wake the Beans up by biting theer noses. They don't seem to like it furry much.
5. For a big mancat I only haf a furry small meow.
6. I haf a rather large floppy tummy, and when I run, mum sez I look like a cow with it's udder swinging.
7. I like rain. As soon as I hear it start, I go in our outdoors run to sit in it.

1. I like to go in our outdoors run at night and yowl at the moon. Mum calls me a Banshee.
2. I'm a furry good hunter. I'm not allowed to catch birds though. As well as catching mice, I haf caught snakes, moles and weasels.
3. I like to eat my food with my paws.
4. I love catnip. I drool and roll and my eyes go glazed.
5. As soon as I hear beeps coming furrom the compooter, I know that means mum has turned it on, and I come running and haf to sit on it to make sure mum duzn't make enny mistakes.
6. I like to sleep on my back wiv my legs in the air.
7. When the Beans go to bed, I like to git unner the kwilt and cuddle into mum's tummy.

There wasn't a photo in this post so I chose a random early photo.
This gave me an idea and if anyone wants to give a date starting from 2006 I will find the photo nearest that date and publish it each week.
This one is called waiting for Mr.Mousie (or possibly Mr.Rat) and was taken on 12th August 2006.

I used it for Caturday Art and only added Sadness at 45%. I was going to add at least one more filter but liked how simple it looked.

of course there is a puzzle.

Remembering Eric.

Eric 8th April 2000- 19th March 2013

It is now seven years since you had to leave us and we both still love and miss you as much as ever.
That will never change. You and your brother Flynn live forever in our hearts until the day we meet again.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the flashback comes from May 2007 and is called:
Lessons in Mouse Catching! I have translated it from Catspeak which many kitties used in the earlier days.

Flynn: Right Eric. I keep catching all the mice and let you have them. I think it's time I showed you how to catch your own.

First of all you find a suitable hole right? Now you have a look down there and tell me if you can see anything.

Come on, it's not going to bite you. Have a good look down there.

That's better, now can you see anything?

What do you mean you don't know. Move over and let me have a look.Yup he's definitely down there.

Now stand back and let the professional show you how it's done.

Result!!! Gotcha you little devil.

Trouble is I still caught the mousie and gave it to you Eric.
You have to catch the next one yourself now I have shown you how to do it.

I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.

I started with Monster at 50% followed by Tuscany at 55%
And the puzzle.

This flashback comes from April 2007 and is called:
Something in the Tree!

Flynn: We just got back from our walk, and we were tired out. Here we are just relaxing and having a bath.

Eric: Shhh Listen, something's making a noise in the tree.

Eric: It's ok Flynn, I'll go and have a look and see what's happening. I can't see anything, but I'm sure I can hear something.

I'll look here too. I think I can see movement. YES!!! I can see it. Quick Flynn come and look. It's........
