Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the flashback comes from May 2008 when a prize arrived after we did an April Fool blog swap with lots of other bloggers.
* The link to Angus Mhor's blog was in the original post but I have removed it as it has been taken over by some tattoo site. The other link is okay.

April Fool's Prize

On April Fool's day some of us swapped blogs to confoose efurrycat. Angus Mhor* did it too, and had a compytishun at the same time. He put a rapping riddle on the blog he wuz posting from to see if anycat could guess who he wuz. We wuz the only ones who guessed right and he sent us a purrize.

Flynn:  Hmmm what haf we got here? I need to have a good look in this box.

Oh yummy Greenies, I like Greenies, and they are Eric's faverits. We can't get them in the Yookay. Look there's Dairy Temtayshuns too. That is my most faverit flavour in the whole world, and we can't get that type in the Yookay either.

There's furry round fings too wiv real fluffy fev-vers, just like baby fev-vers.They look like good fun furr playing wiv.

Eric:  Hey Flynn, what you got there? You didn't tell me we got a package.

Wow!!!! Greenies!!!! I love Greenies. Fanks Angus that is my most faveritist treats of all. And baby fev-vers yummy.

Better have a sniff of the box, it might make a good bed furr me.

Maybe not, it's a bit of a tight fit furr my mancatly booty.

Flynn:  Well Eric we got some good stuff here haven't we. Fanks Angus furrom both of us. You made a good choice of goodies.

The random photo this week was chosen by Tybe from the Canadian Cats. She asked for 29th January 2005. That was pre digital and I never dated my photos properly back then. I have done the next best thing and have 29.01.06 instead. Hope that is okay, Tybe.

Eric waiting for the tap to be turned on so he could have a drink.


I am joining Athena, The Cat Goddess for Caturday Art and using the last photo from the post and the random photo.

I used Landscape at 100% then added Smoke at 25%.

Here I used Rembrandt at 30%, then added Grey at 45%.

  12. Everyone likes greenies! I think the box is better for sleeping in when it is empty. You guys were sure curious about the box contents.

  34. How precious. :) Thank you for sharing.

    And after finding your comment on Brian's Home today, I have to tell you that my brother found a stinky fly catcher similar to those for Japanese beetles and swears by them. He lives where there are farms all around and Amish folk with horse drawn buggies. Just make sure to keep them a few yards from your home. ~nods~ Be well!
