Friday Flashback - A Big Adventure, and Caturday Art.

This week the Flashback comes from December 2011 and is called:
A big Adventure. Eric: We had a very big adventure at the weekend. Dad was working in the bottom field and we don't go down there often because we have to go past all the horses which are in the top field. Mum asked if we wanted to go down and see him and she said we would be safe as long as we kept by the trees. When we got down there I had to check all the new smells.

When I got to the stream I could hear dad but I couldn't see him.

Flynn found some interesting smells by the stream.

I wanted to go for a paddle but mum said it would be too cold.

I was still trying to decide whether I wanted to go in the water, but then I saw Flynn was going into the jungle.

I had to hurry to catch up with him. There could be tigers and all sorts of fierce animals in there and he might need back up.

It is all brambly in here and we can hide from monsters.

Mum can't follow us in here as it's too low and overgrown.

When we got out the other side I heard a mousie in the bank.

I waited silently for him to stick his nose out of his mousie hole.

Then Flynn came along to see what was happening.

He couldn't see it and said I was hearing things.

He said he would leave me to it and go and see what dad was doing.

I had forgotten that we had come to see dad so I thought I had better go too.

I went up and told him it was starting to get dark and it was time he finished up.

Hurry up dad! Mum says we have to go back now or she soon won't be able to see us. It was a very exciting adventure.
I have taken one of the pictures to use for Caturday Art.
I started with Storytime at 50% followed by Scribble at 25% and finished with Flames at 15%.

You can see more art at Athena the Cat Goddess.
I have also made a puzzle from their art photo. Click on the small picture to go to Jigsaw Planet to do it.

You boys were the most amazing "adventure team" EVER! Having a pal to hunt and explore with was such fun I'm sure - that spot in the brambles was like a secret fort!! I know you are having adventures together at the Bridge now. You are missed so much.

Love and Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam

Paying attention to smells is very impawtant, and your boys knew that. Did they ever get their paws wet in that stream??

What wonderful adventures! You boys had such a splendid life on your mum and dad’s farm. We hope heaven can compare. We think your farm is heaven on earth.
Our mum really loves your mum’s art today. There is something about the way you seem almost to rise out of the grass that is just captivating. The coloration is marvelous !

Looks like a very exciting adventure! Epic!

Erin the Cat Princess said...

I love the photo effect, makes us think of waves and long lush autumn grasses. Wow, when you guys went off hunting you sure did explore the jungles. I love going into brambled over places and far from accessible hedges too. Makes for great fun human, and mouse watching too.
