Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

I meant to put it in last week's post but as I only post once a week it had to wait for this week.
Last Monday, July 20th was our 14th Blogoversary. I would like to thank all our faithful followers with sticking with us for all these years.

Now for the flashback which was originally from September 2007 and is called:

CHRISTMAS MEME.
Yep yoo saw it rite, a Chris Mouse meme in September. haha.
We wuz tagged by Kimo and Sabi, so here is what our Chris Mouse's are like.

1)  What is your favourite Christmas gift?
A)  Wrapping paper and paper bags, yoo can't beat it furr haffing fun. Well mebbe nip beats it, but we're talking Chris Mouse here.
2)  What is your best memory of Christmas?
A) That's easy. It has to be the foods.(See #7)

3)  Depending upon where you live, do you have a hot or cold Christmas?
A)  It varies, sumtimes it can be kwite warm, around 60f, but uvver times it's about 28f. We don't like it that cold so we stay indoors most of the time and hog the fire. We don't git much snow here though.

4) Would you prefer to try the opposite weather at least just once?
A) Yes pleez!! We sed we don't like the cold in winter. We want to go to the Carry Beans wiv our Beans. Not fair that they leave us to shiver when they are lazing on the beach.

5) What do you prefer in a tree, fake or real?
A) We only efurr had a fake tree. It's grate furr climbing up. When yoo git half way, yoo can make it tip ofurr then yoo git lots of sparkly balls falling all ofurr the floor. That's the bestest fun.

6) What is your favourite carol?
A) Who's Carol?

7) What is your favourite Christmas dinner?
A) Our mum duzn't like terky very much, but she cooks roast beef which is yummy. She cooks a big gammon ham too which we all haf cold. That's the very bestest meat of all.

8) Do you wear a Santa hat at Christmas?
A) NO WAY!!! We don't wear clothes and speshully not hats.We'd put the bitey on them.

9) Have you seen Santa delivering gifts?
A) No. Once we're asleep nuffin wakes us up till we're reddy to play herds of thundering ellyfants.
Rite that's it so now we haf to nommynate sumcat.
We choose Poppy Q in Noo Zeelund.

The random photo this week was chosen by the Trout Towne Tabbies who asked for 11.11.11 and is of Flynn having a cuddle with me.


I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.


None of the photos in today's post have both boys in it so I have used another one which hopefully I haven't used before.

I started with Watercolour at 55% then added Sadness at 40%.

I also put the original photo into Deep Dream Generator using thin style.


Two art means two puzzles.

The first photo makes me smile. The Christmas tree will keep the boys very occupied. Hope they didn't climb up the tree.

Happy Blogoversary and it's been our pleasure to look forward to your posts! Oh, yeah, Christmas is a time we really like. So much it should be celebrated more than once, or something like it. It was good to see photos and discover holiday likes and dislikes...we don't care for costumes, but the special treats and food...keep it coming!! - Tom x

A 14th Blogoversary is impressive. Concats on that. You allus have a month on us, MOL! While WE individually do not go back that far, TBT does and you are one of the first he tells us he amembers.

So HE says: Tip a bottle of yer favrit beverage, think good thoughts of the boys, and stay healthy...

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Another week when I can't decide which picture is my favorite ... the cat in the bag ... Eric in the snow or cuddly Flynn!

Gigi said...

They were SUCH handsome boys, and what glorious lives they had with you! Happy Birthday and Happy Blogaversary, too! We started in 2010....but we are such bad bloggers now we didn't even do anything for our 10th. Maybe we'll do something belatedly as it is such a nice round number!

Three Chatty Cats said...

Happy Blogoversary! 14 years, wow! That's incredible. Fun Christmas flashback, too!

Nancy Chan said...

Ha ha...my favourite is the 1st pic. Someone is sniffing and got himself stuck inside the paper bag? Never had cold Christmas because it is hot or warm all the year round. Have a great day.
