Friday Flashback and Caturday Art

 Before the flashback I want to wish Ivor a happy anniversary. We have been married for 49 wonderful years today.


We also received this lovely card from Timmy Tomcat and his family.

The flashback this week comes from January 2008 and is called:

Flynn the Cat Burglar.





Note from mum: Don't worry, he wasn't allowed to eat any of the chocolates.
Not wanting to leave Eric out I have a one photo post of him with his dad.

Easy Like Sunday.
It's nice to lie on the sofa wiv your dad, but the roaring can keep you awake.
Here's a bit of advice:
When your Bean snores too loud you put your paw on their chin and push. This makes their mouth close and stops the roaring that comes out of it. When you have stopped them snoring, then you can get some sleep. But it's all lies when mum sez I snore like a little piggy. It must be dad again.

The Random Photo this week was requested by Messymimi who asked for October 23rd as it is her Sweetie's birthday. This date was also requested by the Trout Towne Tabbies who asked for 23.10.12.


Ivor was down in the fields working so the boys and I took our walk down to see how he was getting on.
I have used it for my Caturday Art.


I started with Fairy at 45%, then added Psychedelic at 30%.
Visit Athena the Cat Goddess for more art.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!! I absolutely LOVE your wedding photo - smiles and pure happiness and I know you've had that all the years you've been together too. Love the photos of the boys - that one of Ivor with both boys is precious and so is the one with Eric's "anti-snore" technique! Hugs to everyone!

Love, Pam and Teddy too

That was 1971 right? Sonny & Cher sang "All I Ever Need Is You" ... seems that was a good one for Jackie and Ivor ... for 49-years it worked well, right! Happy Day guys and here's to cruisin' through many more.

That's a long time to be married; you two must really love each other, no? Or, are too stubborn to do anything else...hahahaha!
Happy Anniversary! The Hubby and I will soon celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary, but our first date was on Halloween...coming up on 39 years ago!
And, I'd say we are two very stubborn people...

Happy Anniversary to two dear friends. Many many more and I love the wedding picture. Flynn stealing chocolates had a grin all OVER his face! Just look at it. I love seeing Ivor holding those two, Eric and Flynn! It is a favorite picture in my mind for always. So is seeing that paw on Dad's chin. I love these!

Happy Anniversary!

The art came out great :)

Fr. Tom Fishworthy said...

Love your wedding photo! Happy Anniversary, you two and I know your years were made that much better with Eric and Flynn. (It was funny when, I think it was Eric, found a great way to stop the snoring and you caught it on camera!) - Tom x

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! Great advice for Pop's snoring. er, any tips for the noise from the other end.
Funny story: Gramma used to yell at Grampa for farting at night until she found out it was Faith. MOL!

Cathy Keisha said...

I got the best time on the puzzle so far! I'm always last too!

The Whiskeratti said...

Happy Anniversary to both of you!

John Bellen said...

Forty-nine years! Happy anniversary, you two. You looked so happy on your big day, and it sounds like you are still just as glad. (And Flynn, in case you're reading from Beyond, it's best not to be photographed while thieving...)

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Marley, and Laz) said...

Wow, next year is a BIG 50 one! Not that 49 isn't great. Happy happy...

Layla Morgan Wilde ( Cat Wisdom 101) said...

Happy Annipurrsary! I love seeing old photos of hoomons. Momma had to use a calculator to figure out when she meowied my daddy. She says 42, but she was a child bride. Seriously, she was 9. Love, Dori
