Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

Today's flashback comes from September 2012 and is called:

A Windy Day.
Eric:  It was a windy day but we decided to go and check out the barn.
Dad's tractor was in there. I like to sit on the seat but the door was shut.
Flynn was sniffing to see if there were any mousies about.
There weren't any so we walked up beside the barn where it was sheltered from the wind.
It was nice and sunny though so we didn't really mind our fur being blown inside out.
I had a sniff around the bottom of the purrison hedge because an introoder comes under here at night. Mum thinks it may be a rat but we aren't going to tell her.
Nothing to see there so we are moving on again.
Flynn:  Wait! I thought I heard a mousie!
Eric:  Yes, I heard a noise too but I think it is only the wind blowing through the grass.
That Pandora is watching me again. She wants to chase me. You can't see it in this picture, but there is an electric fence between her and us.
Oh listen! I think I hear dad on the little tractor.
He's bringing back more wood to store for the winter. There is a big wood pile in the barn.
Oh well, nothing more to see now. May as well go back and get some food.
Good idea Eric. Let's go!

I am joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for the Feline Friday blog hop.

I am also joining Athena, the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.


I started with Quirky at 50% then Monster at 30%. I like the way it exaggerated Flynn's tail stripes.
And of course a puzzle.

Nice to go exploring on a windy day, but it is always nice to have a comfy home to return to as well.

Happy Fourth of July!!!

Nothing got by your patrol, did it, Eric and Flynn?

Pam and Teddy said...

Oh what a GREAT bunch of photos of the ginger hunters! Keeping an eye on such a large property is a LARGE job but they sure did it well. Love the artsy version of the last photo and YES - Flynn's tail looks fabulous!!!!

Hugs, Teddy

Zoolatry said...

We likes the "tail art" too ... and if you swish it good, it'll chase off any r-r-rats I'm sure! Happy weekend y'all!

Sandee said...

That was quite a lovely stroll indeed. I chuckled about the not tell the mom if it was a rat or not. So cat like.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. ♥

Looks like a great place!

Beautiful art and photo.

John Bellen said...

I think a horse is one of the few animals that could catch up to the boys. It's good that there was a fence separating them.

Mickey's Musings said...

A good memory today :)
Such a grand field to roam around in too !

Nothing like going home to some food after a good adventure!

Katie Isabella said...

Eric and Flynn...maybe you could have gotten Dad to give you a ride?

Valentine said...

Maybe that Pandora can chauffeur you around in a purrivate carriage through the village. Purr purr purr.

Timmy Tomcat said...

What a great day even though it was windy. We hope Dad left the door open on the big tractor for you guys

That was a busy day for the Boys. Too bad about the wind.

living on a farm for a cat must be like Christmas every day!

Laila and Angel Minchie said...

We always envied you two for all that luscious grass you got to travel through. Great flashback.

RescuesAndMore said...

I always loved watching photos of Eric and Flynn doing their wandering thing. We have lost certain ones whom we still think about and miss years later. I imagine you have the same type of feelings. We really will never forget them.

Thanks for have these retrospectives!!
