12th Blogoversary and Friday Flashback.

On the 20th July 2006 I started a blog for the boys. I never dreamt I would still be updating it 12 years later. I have enjoyed taking so many photos and telling of their adventures over the years, and now I continue to share our memories with you, our friends.
The cat blogging community is a wonderful thing. You are there to share the happy times, and also to offer support in the bad times and it means a lot to us.
Thank you for sticking with us through the years.

The Friday Flashback this week comes October 2011 and is called:
A Walk in the Grass.
The horses haven't been in this field since earlier in the summer and now the grass is very thick and hard to walk through.

We find it much easier if we walk in dad's tractor wheel marks.

and on the way down we have a good nom in the grass.

After we have finished nomming, we go back home and yak up grass on the carpet.

Click on the picture below to go to Jigsaw Planet for the puzzle.

One of our favorite things to see Eric and Flynn do was walking in the fields. They enjoyed it so much. Happy blogoversary. We’re glad you have continued to share your memories with us.

While the boys have passed away, they will never be gone. We enjoy having little pieces of them in our lives through your stories and photographs. They live forever because of it.

Happy Blogoversary!!! We prefer low grass too... and we love meadows with horses... we normally do no fruits, but the horse apples are tasty ;O)))

Concats on 12 years of blogging! You've picked the perfect flashback to celebrate--Mom laughed at the yak on the carpet part (although we have no idea why).

Concatulations on 12 years of blogging, miss Jackie. WOW! what an achievement, we're only half way there :D We're happy to have known the angels and still see so many posts that we never have seen before, like this one.

Happy Blogoversary! Isn't this community such a wonderful place? I have nowhere near 12 years under my belt, but even in my couple of years here, I feel like I've made so many friends. Yours was one of the first blogs I started following back when I began! I always enjoyed seeing Eric and Flynn's adventures, and I will always enjoy the memories you share of them.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Your boys are one-of-a-kind and it's been quite a fun journey to follow them. I regret not following your blog back when Eric was alive.

Erin the Cat said...

Hehehehe, I know what you mean about the grass and the carpet... I mean it's there to be used, right?
I love walking on the paths as around here, especially in winter, the untrodden or unrolled grass gets me too wet on the tummy floof which is an absolute no no.
We both love the jigsaw picture too, very much an african cat hunting scene....
