Friday Flashback, 13th Blogoversary and Caturday Art.

Tomorrow, 20th July will be our 13th blogoversary. I wish the boys were here to carry it on, but I do my best to keep their memory alive and will continue to do so.
Our very first post is here for anyone who is interested in reading it.

This week the flashback comes from December 2012 and is called, "Sunshine"

 The rain has stopped for a few days and it is nice to get out in the sun.

 Nomming the grass again,

 Breathing in all those nice fresh smells.

 Wondering if your brother is going to pounce on you as he walks up behind you. I don't call him humpa lumpa for nothing.
 Yes, this is the life. The only trouble is......

We have to walk back over the nasty icy grass to get back to the fire.

I am joining Athena, Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.

I started with Tuscany at 55%, then added Scribble reduced to 20% and finished with Flow at 35%. As usual there is a puzzle.

I know how you feel. It's been rain and thunder here for the last 3 days. Today has been sunny and gorgeous.
Happy Friday all!

Happy Blogoversary, y'all. Love the boys' flashback photos. It's funny how much blogger has changed since those earlier years, isn't it?

Zoolatry said...

Wow! Are you the "oldest blogger" in our pet world? (just teasing ... but seriously ... 13 ...!) OMCat ...
but we loved you back then, in between and we love you
now! So, keep it up, keep it on, keep going! Eric and Flynn will always be with us, in our hearts and our minds cause, well, they're the best of the best!
Hugs and great memories ... Happy 13!

Oh so good to see the boys. We miss them. Looks like that was a good day in your world. You all have a fine Friday.

I really enjoyed reading that first blog, Jackie! We were not blogging back then and I only met you after Eric went to the Bridge. I didn't realise he was such a big guy! Anyway, congrats on your 13th Blogoversary! That is quite an achievement. So many people have just disappeared over the years.

That's a HUGE anniversary - 13 years is a long time and of course you had two gorgeous guys to talk about for most of those years. All those adventures and fun - I wish we'd known you all along but we are thrilled that we DID meet you and get to know Eric and Flynn - They became part of our world and still are....Angels forever watch over us. Hope your blogaversary is a day of great memories and lots of love.

Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

Happy Blogoversary! We started in 2006 as well, and I wish I had kept up with it like you have. Sadly, Grr crossed the Rainbow Bridge July 16. I know one of the first things she did was meet up with Eric & Flynn and our other friends who are there.

Happy Blogoversary! Humpa lumpa? Now that's funny! Maybe I should borrow that for TW.

John Bellen said...

That sunlight looked so bright, I would have thought it was a summer sun. I started reading of the boys' adventures some time after they started the blog, but I recall Fat Eric. It's funny how friends lead to friends, and their blogs lead to new ones. I'm glad this blog is continuing.
