Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the flashback comes from May 2007 is called:
Scary Monster!

Aarrrggghhhh I've just seen a monster!!. Flynn come and look. Flynnnnnnnnn where are you, come quickly.

What's the matter Eric, what do you want?
Oh Flynn you're the monster. I didn't know what it was.

Go on Eric, it's safe, you go and have a look.

Well if you're sure I'll stick my head in and have a look.I recognise what it is now. It's those funny masks some of the horsies wear to keep the flies out of their eyes.
You have to admit you did look scary though Flynn.

Last week I said I would do a random photo a week if you gave dates starting from 2006.
Well, one thing I found out, my early filing of digital photos was a shambles!
I found photos from 2005 in the 2006 folder and many others filed under the wrong date. I didn't even remember that I had a digital camera before 2006, so now know what I will be spending time doing while we are on lock down.
I did get some dates from you and I will publish one a week in  chronological order. If I don't have a photo taken on that date I will use the nearest date to it.
This week 8.02.06 was requested by Dai$y from the Trout Towne Tabbies
The nearest date I have to that is 6.02.06

Flynn playing in the papers 6th February 2006.

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

None of the above photos was suitable for the art so I found another random photo from 2005 to use.

Helping to unpack the shopping!
I started with Van Gogh5 at 45%, added Gaugain3 at 35% then finished with Metallic at 40%
And the puzzle!

    I love how kitties need to inspect/snoopervise all the incoming bags...making sure the correct provisions came into the den.

  3. we love that monster!!!! what a fab idea !

  4. Playing in papers is fun - we all like doing it!

  7. EEEK! That does look like some kind of monster for the newspapers is a good thing to do - Angel Sammy used to like Dad to make "tunnels" out of the newspaper for him to hide in. The Random photo that you artified is adorable!

    1. I did translate this comment from Turkish to check it wasn't spam. It is a legit blogger in Turkey who reviews books.
      It translates as "So sweet, but...."

  9. Turns out that was a pretty handsome monster after all!

  10. Sometimes, it's hard not to laugh, when one of Da Boyz jumps on the other, who has found a bag to loll in!
    Hope you are doing well, and thanks for the puzzle!

  11. What a fun memory. Love it.

  25. That was indeed a scary monster!

    Love the art :)

  26. Boys, that was scary even to me, a Tuxie all the way over HERE! But it's good the horsies have such a cover for their eyes.

  27. We're sure glad it wasn't actually a monster. :) Your photo organization sounds like a great project while sheltered in place. We hope you are safe and well. XO

  28. Wow. I'm not sure which picture is my favorite - they are all winners! As adorable as Flynn is in the papers, I love the art effect - it's truly stunning.

  29. We love seeing pictures of your little angels and especially it was fun to see them half inside bags like when they helped you unpack bags. I'd love to see the shopping picture when they were still orange!

  30. Scary monsters or playful exploring, we love seeing all these two boys always did together. Stay well and safe, y'all.

  31. Mom says her horses would have appreciated the mask things, she had never seen them before. And as always we so enjoyed seeing the boys.

  32. Oh, that scary monster picture made Us laugh!

  33. That really is one scary monster Eric! We are so happy every time we flash back with you boys and Mom and Dad. We know what you mean about dates and photos. Dad found all kinds of things all over when he tried to arrange things on his new puter. Thank goodness for back up! Great Art too!

  34. Love the art and the cat in the mask. It's so cook you're doing "foto frenzy" now. Gonna do the puzzle cos it's been a busy weekend and the peeps didn't even leave the condo.

  35. Fab flashback dudes and we love the art! Hoping to stop by your puzzle page later - epic! Stay well xox

  36. I had no idea what that was! WOW a monster indeed!

  37. OMD, scary monster pictures made me smile!! Happy Tuesday!

    Pinot xo

  38. I thought for a moment the boys were going to make up a pantomime horse, with both of them in there together.

  39. Buddy said Flynn was pretending to be a horse.

  40. Awww! I've never seen a cuter monster!

    Happy Thursday!
