Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week I have three very short posts from March and April 2007.
The first was originally a Mancat Monday.


Eric: Here I am sitting on a log checking that dad has been doing his work properly.
Well efurryfing looks ok to me. I haf been getting a lot of hassle furrom Flynn cuz he sez he wants to be a mancat too. Well I told him he can put up a mancat pichur just this once, but then he has to leave it to me. He can carry on wiv the "kyoot shots"


Flynn: Eric sez I'm not a big mancat and I shouldn't be on Mancat Monday. I asked mum if I could, and she sed of course I can, and that Eric mustn't be mean to me, so heer I am.Do yoo fink I look manly?

The next is Eric in another Mancat Monday.


I am in the garden being manly and keeping all the fev-vers and slugs and snails away furrom mum's pots of lilies. The shoots haf just started to come up, so if I sit on them, that means I am protecting them right? Well why duz mum say "Eric git yer fat butt off my lilies" then? Sumtimes a mancat is just not apree-she-aytid.

The last one is Flynn from a Wordless Wednesday.


I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.


For Eric I started with Starry Night at 45% then added Watercolour at 50%

For Flynn I started with Frida at 70% then added Delaunay at 60% to tone the yellow down a bit.

And the puzzles.

All wonderful flashback photos, but we especially enjoy Flynn's Wordless Wednesday pose!

Pam and Teddy said...

What adorable flashbacks....those boys NEVER EVER looked anything but manly and handsome in their photos. Of course we ginger boys ARE special but they were beyond special. Love the artsy versions too!

Hugs, Teddy (and Mom)

Oh it is always so much fun to see you, Eric and Flynn. Flynn, you were such a handsome mancat. You were such handsome boys. Have a good day.

Sandee said...

You both are great mancats. Mom is right about that. What a wonderful flashback. Bittersweet.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

My human remembers how much the boys loved the flower pot beds.

Katie Isabella said...

Oh, like Summer, I remember the boys in the flower pots! I always loved seeing them in there and BOTH of you are the best examples of what a mancat is! Mom and I love to see you.

Eric and Flynn were such awesome, mancatly mancats! We love how you were always able to capture their purrsonalities so well. XO

Little Binky and Granny said...

You both look very manly to me, angel Eric and Flynn, I only have doubts about the last picture...madame de Pompadour...MOL... Stay safe from the storms, we've read that it's very nasty🙏Pawkisses for a Safe Sunday🐾😽💞

Erin the Cat Princess said...

MrsH did both jigsaws but both over 16 mins to do! She has retired for the week and know sipping sherry to chill out. We think the life of a mancat gardener is mighty tough, but Mrs H says we must all take the rough with the smooth, the lilies with the dandylions, MOL
Have a great week
