Friday Flashback - Whole Lotta Sniffin' and Caturday Art.

This week the Friday Flashback comes from November 2011 and was during an evening walk after days of rain.

Flynn: We don't get out for as many walks now winter is coming, so when we do we have to stop and have a good sniff.

Eric found a good place to sniff,

so I thought I had better check it out in case it was a better sniff than I had found.

Eric: That is enough sniffing for now, I am having a look around instead.

I can't see anything interesting.

What are you doing Flynn?

Flynn: Shhh, I thought I heard a mousie.

Eric: No, I think you are hearing things. Lets go for a walk down to Badgerlands.

sniff sniff sniff. There are lots of smells here.

Remember this picture from Wordless Wednesday? We are getting very strong badger sniffs now.

Eric: Wow! These smells are just getting stronger and stronger.

Come on Flynn, there could be monsters.Lets get out of here. It must be supper time by now anyway.
Click on the small picture below to got to Jigsaw Planet for the puzzle. It should be a bit easier this week as I haven't used a Caturday Art version.

For my Caturday Art I once again used Lunapic. I started with the canvas effect, then added Devilish at 30%. I followed that with Scribble at 25%, then Tuscany at 40%. Of course I had to use my favourite Landscape but kept it to 15%. The frame is Lunapic too.
You can see more Caturday Art with Athena the Cat Goddess.

It was always good of the boys to check out smells - but also to know when the smells were a little too strong...

Summer said...

I'm always in alert mode when I see the twins sniffing ;O) ...there is often more than a mouse ... mostly something with a giant ewww-factor LOL

I have not ever smelled a badger...we don't have those around here...coons and groundhog and other small mammals, but no badgers. Skunks? Yup, those would leave a good stink:)

15:02 on the puzzle. It was a lot easier! Thanks:)

You two boys had such fun going out for your walks and smelling everything. You did such a good job too in finding things.

The boys sure had a lot of fabulously "sniffable" places to check out on their walks.....they were the BEST introoder team ever!

Laila and Angel Minchie said...

Can't even imagine all the glorious smells that were out there for your sniffing and guessing what critter it was from.

Kathe W. said...

Lucy loves to walk and sniff also!

Kari said...

Oh goodness! How we miss those adventures! Hard to tell who loved them more the boys or us. The way the boys coats made constantly changing patterns of orange and white always fascinated us too.
Eric and Flynnie, please know how much we love and miss you.

Katie Isabella said...

Boys, I always and ever loved your walkabouts and your adventures and once again I will say how much I loved seeing you with the camera again after all this time...when your mom shared that memory. Mom was fascinated with it and wished Admiral was an indoor-outdoor girl and that she could perhaps wear a camera. XXXX

M Dawson said...

I must look up Lunapic. I am enjoying Photo Lab which is fun too.

It's good to see the boys and thanks for supporting the PP.

messymimi said...

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Marley, and Laz) said...

Those badgers allus made us worry for Eric and Flynn... Badger starts with "bad" fer a reason!

Erin the Cat Princess said...

No badgers around these parts, but would love to meet one and maybe have a chat as apparently they are quite wise, and sort of tuxedo colours, MOL
Love the blues that show up in your art this week, and makes me think of winter and hot fires and snuggling indoors
