Friday Flashback - Christmas 2006.

When my computer crashed earlier this year I lost my Christmas email cards list. I have hopefully got most friends back on it, but if you haven't received my card please take it from beneath my header. Could you also let me know in a comment so I can make sure you go back on my list.

This week the flashback goes right back to Christmas 2006. When I do my flashbacks I usually copy and paste the HTML code, but because this post was from our old blog and using the original blogger it wouldn't transfer properly so I had to find the original photos and redo the post. While I was doing that I changed the dialogue from Cat Speak (similar to Trout Towne language) to English.
You can see the original post if you want to here

Flynn: Mum took so long this year getting the tree ready we had to help her put it up. I'm just looking in the box to make sure it's all there.

Eric: I'll just have a look and make sure the lights are in there.

Flynn: While you are doing that Eric, I'll put the bitey on it.

Well I've done that, so now I'll make sure everything is in the box.

Oh no where did Eric go?

Flynn: Well now the tree is up and all decorated so I'd better check it looks right.

Now how did that happen? It just fell off on it's own so I might as well put the bitey on that too.

Flynn:  Eric's disappeared again.
Eric:  No I haven't, I'm just guarding the tree.
Happy Christmas to all our kitty friends and their Beans from us and our Beans.

I have used the first photo for my Caturday Art.

I started with Smoke at 35%, then Gauguin at 50% and finished with Red Blush at 40%.
You can see more Caturday Art by visiting Athena, The Cat Goddess.

Of course there is also a puzzle. Click the small picture to do it on Jigsaw Planet.

We are joining the Feline Friday blog hop.


  1. They sure were having a big time and the art turned out wonderfully!

  2. Flashbacks are precious. Bittersweet, but wonderful too.

    Have a fabulous day and a very Merry Christmas. ♥

  3. Those two sure did have a lot of fun getting the tree ready for Santa.

    We did receive a beautiful card from you - many thanks, and Happy Holidays.

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  4. Love the art and the story. Flynn was so small. I know this was a lot of work but I love seeing a post from way back when.

  5. you are the bestest helpers ever... we wish we could help too but we are not allowed (no idea why, honestly)

  6. The boys were very good helpers!

  7. HeHe! Pussy~cats are the bestest ever for decorating
    Christmas trees..and..redecorating them, as they seem
    to change every day...! Bless! 🐾🐾🐾 πŸŽπŸ’ πŸŽ„
    Merry Christmas one and all....! :).

  8. What a wonderful flashback to Christmas with the ginger boys helping to get that Christmas tree "up and running" ! I love the photo with Eric hiding out in the tree's always wonderful to see these guys but Christmas makes us reflect on "happy times of the past". We like that! We also hope you and Ivor have a beautiful Christmas full of happy memories and make more of them for the future too!

    Love and Hugs, Pam and Teddy

  9. You two boys sure had a good time with tree. We have to tell you the card that you sent to us was our all time favorite. In fact I think we are going to frame it. You all have a wonderful Christmas and a really happy New Year.

  10. Love this flashback. The boys were such great snoopervisors!!!

    Thanks for the puzzle. We'll do it later!

    The Florida Furkids

  11. How in the world can she put up the tree without you?? It will be all wrong.

  12. Two Gingers sure did know how to have fun. I love your flashbacks.
    Collards are in the kale family; however, the leaves are flat w/o any crinkles and very very easy to clean.

  13. Boxes and trees and sparkly stuff...what's not to love, if you are a cat!

  14. such fun and sweet memories! Thank you soooooooo much for your CARDS!! We received TWO!! THANK YOU!! We love them both! Yours is on the way but sadly will probably arrive after Christmas. Hoping your holiday is blessed and beautiful! xoxo

  15. that is one sweet special memory. It's so lovely to have to many to remember and celebrate. We love the choice you made for CAturday Art that turned out so well. Merry Christmas and thank you again for the beautiful card.

  16. 13:11 on the puzzle! Loved it,thanks!

  17. Christmas tree wrangling is such an important job!

  18. Aww! what nice pics love the art one

    Happy Christmas to you :-)

  19. I love this flashback. Eric and Flynn were such good helpers, like little elves :) I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! XO

  20. We are as helpful as Eric and Flynn were...which is why we don't have a tree!

  21. Excellent snoopervision and quality control. After all, if you have a tree that falls over, something has to be done!

  22. o mi cod it is such bliss to see you adventurous angel boys when you were exploring the tree! Your orange-ness against the green tree backgrounds are almost too much for a girl (well gurrrrls) to take! Love you Angels!!!

  23. Great flashback! So sweet together.

    Happy Christmas

  24. Don't they make the best little helpers? Angel Truffles disappeared in the box like that one year too :)

  25. Eric and Flynn sure were great helpers! So sweet. :)

    We received your beautiful holiday card. Thank you, Jackie and Ivor! XO

  26. Boxes are not just for Boxing Day. What fun with the tree and the decorations - happy memories.
    Thanks for the jigsaw and we are looking forward to watching Γ„iti open the package you sent on Christmas Day (the English one!). Happy holidays to you!

  27. I LOVE the adventures of Eric an Flynn with the tree! And I gotta say, I forgot about the "Cat Speak"! I can't even imagine Marv talking like Nellie!
    Merry Christmas to you and Ivor. This is the season we wish one another joy and love and peace. These are my wishes for you, Merry Christmas my dear friends, may you feel the love!

  28. Ha! What a load of fun the boys were having. Mine are dull compared to them.

  29. Wonderful Flashbacks !
    COD ! I'm so miss them ! I always love their adventures =^x^=

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
    I hope you both have a wonderful time
