Friday Flashback - Stampede!

First of all, I hope everybody had a lovely Christmas.
We were away for a few days and the hotel we stayed at had very limited internet access and also phone signal for using data, so I was unable to visit with my best wishes over the Christmas period.
We also had 4 more cards arrive yesterday which I will scan and add to my Christmas card post.
Thank you, Ducky and mum Janet, Forty Paws, Travis and Kinley and mom Kimberley from Lone Star Cats and Tazo from The Furry Kids.
I also had some more ecards which I will add to my Christmas 2018 page.
I haven't done any art for tomorrow's Caturday Art but will be back to normal in the New Year.
I haven't done a puzzle either but there are loads of varied puzzles in the albums on my puzzle page. Click on the small partly done puzzle of Flynn at the top of my sidebar to get to them.

Now for the flashback which comes from April 2012 - Stampede!

The other day when Eric was rolling in the wood chip, I decided to lie there and relax.

Oh no! Here he comes!

It's like a stampede.

Phew! I'm glad your brakes worked Eric.

I didn't originally have a puzzle but by special request here is one of Flynn in the first photo. Click on the small picture to do it on Jigsaw Planet.

Glad Eric's brakes worked too. It is always so good to see those two Angel boys. We miss them.
Have a most wonderful day.

wood chip beds are eggs-cellent... and we love the smell in our furs... the mama sadly not so much ;O)

Sandee said...

Nothing like the memories. They are most precious.

LOL Eric had good brakes and Flynn had nerves of steel to have faith Eric would stop

For all the size of your school, he has to come bounding right up to you. Thank goodness that surface is nice and soft(ish) and springy! Did you find many mice nestling in there, by the way, as we were thinking of doing a mulched area around the palace and Mrs H thought it may help grow our mouse population...

You two always had the best adventures outside! We wish we could just visit outside but Mom is adamant about that. WE hope you have a wonderful New years!!!

Brian said...

That was fun and a quick stop is a good thing sometimes. Happy New Years a bit early!

messymimi said...

Glad you had a good Christmas, and hooray for good brakes!

Three Chatty Cats said...

Yes, it's always important to make sure the brakes are in working order! Good thing they were.

Stampede -that's a great word to describe how we all race into the house when we think it is time for dinner. Mom says she has to stay way back from the door so we don't knock her over:)

Fun flashback.

Summer said...

Wow, Flynn almost got run over!

Pam and Teddy said...

Oh what fun it would be to play in a big batch of wood chips! Good thing that these two have "well oiled machinery" (like brakes!) though or there might be a few wood-chip wrestling matches.

Love the photos.............
Hugs, Pam

Kitties Blue said...

It's frustrating to have limited wifi! I spent two days at the local library, just to have it! Happy Mew Year!

I was expecting Flynn to be run over! I've seen pictures of it happening at other times.

It is so nice that you guys got away over the holiday...and sometimes it is a good thing to be disconnected!
The end of every year marks a new year. We wish your next year to be filled with wonderful promises. Wishing you all the best for the upcoming year!
