Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

 This week the flashback comes from October 2008 and was a Mancat Monday.

Back in the Hay Barn.

The sun came out yesterday afternoon, so we got to roll in the dirt.

After we had done that we went to check the hay and straw again.

Eric: Flynn where have you gone? I can't see you.

Flynn: I'm in here Eric. I'm just coming back out.

Eric: I'd better have a look to see what you were doing in there. I don't want to miss anything.

Eric: Hmphh, that was a waste of time. There wasn't anything in there at all.

The Random Photo this week comes from 23.11.09, and was chosen by the Trout Towne Tabbies and is dedicated to Tuna.

Dedicated to Tuna.

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

I started with Landscape at 60% then Frida at 25%. I am not happy with the art effect so using the original for the puzzle. I should have started over again!

Exploring the hay bales is a fun chore...you never know what it might yield! Rolling in dirt seems to appeal to us pups, too, esp if the dirt is in a sun puddle:)

Brian said...

That was fun rolling in the dirt and playing in the straw and hay. Such a sweet tribute to dear Tuna.

That is so amazing, all the hay the boys had to explore in. Being a city cat, that is something I've never seen!

WILLIE...! =(^..^)= said...

The boys certainly loved that barn,
did'nt they...Bless!xx

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

"What beautiful cats so sweet and naughty. I send a kiss"
The link is to their blog, "In Love with Letters" not an unknown site.

Those two boys sure did love roaming and exploring in that hay, didn't they? Another wonderful flashback.

Good morning Eric and Flynn
What a beautiful post dedicated to Tuna of Moon your the best friend a kitty could have.

I didn't find a needle in the haystack BUT I did spy a ginger kitty Tail.
Jackie thank you for the most interesting comment on my post yesterday about 1973. That was a wide stretching storm.
Hugs and Happy Friday

Off to puzzle; thank you.

Sandee said...

Wonderful flashback. Nothing better than hiding in the hay loft. Our kitties did that too when I was a kid.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend, Jackie. ♥

Very sad about Tuna. Cute flashback. I bet no mouse ever survived the hay barn. Very nice art. Thank you for the puzzle. XO

Marvelous Marv said...

What! No Mousies in the hay!?!? And what a terrific photo of the 2 of you and the art is fabulishious! We will miss Tuna and were very sad to read of his passing. We know that he was met by many of the befores and much wrestling took place. We hope you and Ivor have a marvellously happy week.

In Lucy's memory said...

My condolences to Tuna's people and friends...Today's photos were a fun assortment from sunbathing to hide'n'seek in the barn. The random photo is so handsome. I like Mom's catwork. Hope she's doing well and Dad too. Until next week...Jean

Three Chatty Cats said...

Yvonne said...

The Island Cats said...

That hay barn was such a fun place for the boys.

The Indulged Furries said...

Wonderful flashback photos. The boys were certainly enjoying themselves.

Melissa, Mudpie and Angel Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

Did you ever lose them among the hay? MOL

messymimi said...

Always so busy, at least, when there weren't naps needing to be taken.

My heart still aches for Food Service Girl.

XmasDolly said...

OMG I think I'm going to like blogging on Friday SO MANY nice.... very nice people! I love making friends and have a great weekend! Be safe, be well, but most of all BE!!!!

Erin the Cat Princess said...

I'm grateful Mrs H doesn't follow me. Where I go she'd likely get stuck, plus a cat's got to have their own secret pantry to visit late at night!
I bet that's what Flynn was up to, MOL

Cathy Keisha said...

I would have loved to have taken a roll in the hay with Flynn. Heh heh. I see he came out though. So sweet to dedicate your art to Tuna. Laura is the sweetest human in the world.

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Looks like so much fun!

The art looks great.

meowmeowmans said...

Dirt rolling sure does look fun! So does going INTO the hay pile! Angels Eric and Flynn, we love yu boys forever and ever.

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

We remember the adventures in the hay. And good to see them close. Brothers can be surprisingly attached and friendly.

Those pics where you can only see their tails made Us smile.

John Bellen said...

The boys look snug in the straw, and almost invisible!

Fr. Tom Fishworthy said...

All kinds of hiding places in that straw..so easy to get lost with only a tail to show..!

Hairballsandhissyfits.com said...

Love the photo of the tail sticking out of the hay!

Katie Isabella said...

I love the photos. XXOO My mom would have had cardiac arrest if she ever saw me in a small opening and just my tail out.

Rummaging in the hay looks like fun, but we might have to get brushed when we came out. Have a good week.
