Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

The flashback this week comes from May 2012 and was when we arrived home from a cruise.
The Beans are back!

Eric: That means I can lie in front of the purrison fence and enjoy the sunshine again.

Flynn: I prefer to lie under the azaleas but the flowers have all died off since we got locked up.

Eric: It means I can drink and paddle in our outdoor drinking bowl again.

Flynn: And I can get back to my favourite sunny spot on a pile of paving slabs.

Mum says I have got penguin feet here. I am having a good look but I can't see what she means.

At least she took us out in the fields after so we could have a tussle.

Then chance to relax together in the grass.

I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art and have used the last photo.
I started with Flow at 50%, followed by Frost at 25% and finished with Sadness at 28%

Of course there is a puzzle.

Remembering Eric

        Eric 8th April 2000 - 19th March 2013.

Another year has passed and it is now six years since you had to leave us.
Nothing changes, we miss you as much today as we ever did and we always will do.

You loved your walks around the fields stopping to check everything on the way.

Then coming back to sit outside just enjoying the sun and fresh air.
We will never forget you and your brother, Flynn.
We hope you are romping happily together at the Bridge with all those friends who have joined you there.
Love you forever, darling boy.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

The friday flashback comes from May 2012 and is called:

I'm Bored!
Every day it rains and there is nothing to do but nap.

We're bored.

When is it going to stop?

I have to nap on the bed because Eric beats me to the new cat tree, and I don't want to nap on the old one.

The bed is good for napping when the sun comes in, but I have forgotten what it looks like now.

I'm still bored.

Haha! I got to the new tree first....... but I'm still bored.

I am also joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art. As none of the photos had both boys in I have made two artsy pictures, one of each. Click to enlarge.

For Eric I used Quirky at 55% then added Landscape at 40%.

For Flynn I started with Flow at 50% then added Frost at 30%
I have never used Flow before and like the effect it gave for Flynn. I tried it on Eric's photo and it looked terrible so I had to start again! It surprised me how different that effect appeared on the two different photos.
Of course there is a puzzle, and as there are two pictures that means two puzzles.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

As with last week I have some more one photo or very short post Tummy Tuesday flashbacks.

June 2009 - Eric and Flynn

Eric: I have been doing the Tummy Tuesdays lately because, let's face it, I've got more lovely tummy to show off than Flynn. He sulked a bit and said he wanted to do it, but I said ,'Tough, I've already done it.'

Flynn: Hehe! Eric might think he's got Tummy Tuesday all to himself, but he hasn't noticed I'm here yet. He might think he's got more tummy to show off than me, but mine is cuter.

January 2009 - Flynn

I was just going to let you all see one photo of my tummy, but then I realised this is our 600th post so you can have another photo as a bonus.

January 2009 - Eric

Well, what are you waiting for? I need a nice tummy rub.

The next two posts are from our original blog so hopefully they will publish properly as it was done with the old Blogger format.

September 2008 - Eric

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 Oudoors, 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!

November 2008 - Flynn

Do not disturb! Go and find somewhere else to sit.

I am joining Athena, the Cat Goddess for the Caturday Art blog hop. You can find more art by visiting her.

I have used one of the photos of Flynn for my Caturday Art.

I started with Scribble at 30%, then Landscape at 35% and finishes with Tuscany at 55%.
As usual there is a puzzle.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

The last two weeks I posted some one photo Wordless Wednesdays, so this week and probably next week I have chosen some Tummy Tuesday posts.

Flynn, December 2010:
Flynn: Haha! I've beaten Eric to Tummy Tuesday again.

Eric: Hmm, you may think you have got one over on me, but I've got your card marked.

Eric, November 2010:
It has turned a lot colder now but at least the rain has stopped. It was good to get out and have a lovely roll in the dirt.

Flynn, January 2011:
I am waiting for tummy tickles and snorgles.

Aww go on, you know you want to, and if you do........

I will do curly toes for you.

Eric, October2010:
I love to get on these concrete blocks. The sun makes them nice and warm.

And when I'm warm I like to show my tummy. I'm all ready for some tummy rubs and chin scritches so who is first?

I have made two pictures this week but didn't keep a note as I went of the layers I used.

Of course if there are two pictures there will be two puzzles!
