Friday Flashback - Tummies.

A while back I did a small collection of single photo posts and have done another one this week which were all originally Tummy Tuesdays.


11.08.06
Flynn: We've seen loads of photos of tummies lately, so here's mine. Mum Bean calls me Flynnie tubbytum sometimes, but I don't know why cos it's really dainty compared with Eric's
Eric: Huh!!! call that a tummy, this is a proper tummy. Mum calls me Podger sometimes and I tell her that's very hurtful. Us Eric's are proud of our tums.Don't know where my tail went though!!

Mum says I am getting a little podgy tummy, but I think it is just the way I am sitting.

This is called a menage and it is where the horses go in to be schooled.
The surface is made of wood chippings and it is furry good furr rolling in.
It also makes an excellent giant litterbox.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art. In Memory of Crockett


Sadly, earlier this week Crockett had a tragic accident and tomorrow would have been his 5th Gotcha Day. I am joining all those who love and miss him and dedicate this post to him.
We miss you, Crockett.


This week the flashback comes from August 2012 and the photos were taken during one of our hotter summer's days.

Relaxing in the Grass.
Flynn: We were out walking and the sun was getting hot but there weren't any trees close by to get in the shade. The next best thing is to lie down in long grass and that will cool you down.

It looks like Eric has found a better spot.

Hi Eric, mind if I join you?

Ah yes, this is much better.

You still there Eric? I can't see you.

Eric: Of course I'm still here.

Now I can't see you Flynn.

You know what Flynn, I think I want the spot that you've got.

Eric: Well if you won't let me have that spot I will sit here and sulk until you do move.

I used Lunapic as usual and started with Fairy at 40%, then added Picasso also at 40%. I have felt that my art has been turning out too similar each week so added Frost at 50%.
It turned out much darker than usual and I am not really happy with it.
I saved it, then removed the Frost effect and added Flow at 50%

I am happier with the bright colours in this version. Let me know in the comments which you prefer.
I have made both into puzzles.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

Today I am combining two posts from August 2012. They are both from when the boys went out wearing their camera and is called
Photographer Cats
Mum charged our camera up for us because we haven't taken any photos for quite some time. She has got it set to take a photo every minute and it will take 40 photos, so we wear it for 20 minutes each. If she gets 10 reasonable photos out of the set, she tells us we have done very well.
Part 1, Flynn

Flynn: It was my turn first so I took a photo on the path on the way down to the fields.

That is dad's roller by the gate for making the field go flat.

Huh! Trust Eric to walk in front of me!

Here is some nice tasty grass. It is good if you want to yak.

This is the horse poop heap. It is all the fresh poop that is picked up from the fields and is very stinky! The poop heap you saw us by the other day is the winter poop heap and has bedding with it and is not stinky.

There is Snowdon the horse and he is under our favourite climbing tree.

Mum told Eric it is his turn to wear the camera now so he said he would have a quick bath first.
He will show you his photos later in the week.

Part 2, Eric

Eric: Do you remember in Flynn's last photo that it was a back view of me sat here having a wash? Well you can't see me now because I am wearing the camera.

I took a photo of Snowdon, but he must have been sneaky and jumped sideways so I almost missed him.

Here is some more nommy grass, but mine is better than Flynn's because it has clover in it.

Dad has been replacing the garage roof so I went and checked the old roofing sheets.

Then we went back in the garden and I took a photo of Flynn. I could do with a zoom lens really, but mum said it would be too heavy for me. Those are my whiskers hanging down in the top right.

Then I took a photo of one of our nip plants. It came out blurry but nip does that to you.

This is one of our outdoor drinking bowls with rainwater in it. It has got some dead grass in it too from when dad cut the lawn, but that gives it extra flavour.

I saw Flynn had gone in his plant pot in the greenhouse and wanted to take another photo of him, but he was too busy bathing to look up. I hope you have enjoyed our photos from our viewpoint.

I didn't think any of the photos in today's post would make good art so I chose one at random from my folder.

I started with Flow at 50%, then added Landscape at 35% and finished with Frost at 20%.
Of course there is a puzzle.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the flashback comes from July 2012 and is called:
Poop Mountain.

Flynn: This is the horse poop heap from the stables in the winter. Mousies and rats go under there but I can't get after them.

There has been an introoder cat around so I have to put my smell on the poop heap to hide his smell. Mum says I'm a little stinker.

Eric: I had better check you've covered up the introoder smell.

Yup, that seems to be in order.

I had better check down the bottom too.

Poop heap climbing is fun. Almost as good as rolling in pheasant poop.*
