Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

 I have another selection of one photo posts today.

After all the worry with Eric being ill over the last two weeks, I just need to sit here and think about how much I love him. I'm so happy he's back to normal again, and we even had a rassle earlier.

Me and my dad both like it when we can find a nice sunspot in the garden furr napping.

 A bit longer post with Flynn from November 2008.
Eric always likes to read the newspapers with our dad, but I prefer to read them on my own.

If I find an interesting article, I really like to get stuck in.

If there is more than one interesting item, it's hard to decide which to read.

But if a spider comes along, that is even more interesting.

Eric and Dad November 2008

When dad has finished his breakfast, we like to sit down together and read the newspapers.
 
Then we have a snooze and maybe a snoring competition.

The random photo was requested by Poppy Q who asked for Eric and his dad on the tractor.

The first is with his dad on the small  tractor helping to bring the hay bales in from the field.

The second is keeping guard of the big tractor for his dad.


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


For Eric I started with Monet at 40%, then added Sadness at 35%.


For Flynn I used Grey at 50%, then added Psychedelic also at 50%.

Usually I comment on the pictures first, but the artwork this week is simply smashing! Glad Eric was feeling okay to rassle and read the newspaper with Dad (and snooze and snore) And Flynn, reading the newspaper by yourself means you can take your time.
Hope Mom and Dad are doing well. Until next week...Jean

Since we didn't know the boys before, we love seeing these posts. It is fun learning about Flynn and Eric. We just love that first photo of Flynn and both of your art works are gorgeous.

Awww, reading the paper in the morning is such a treat. By the time i get to it after work, it feels like the news is all used up! (meaning i have heard the headlines on the radio)

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

They were such special little guys. Love the newspaper and tractor photos especially.

Love the first photo with the yellow flowers, but all the photos together show a beautiful story of cat life.

Cathy Keisha said...

Love the art again. I'm with Flynn. The papers are best enjoyed by oneself.

We also love newspapers - shredding them is a great workout for the claws (mol).

Sweet memories ! Beautiful artwork ! Zorro loves newspapers, especially when he can shred them with teeth and claws... Purrs

John Bellen said...

I want to thank the two of you for your kind words upon the passing of my boy Tucker. You've watched him with me for years, I know; I know too that you understand such a loss as his. It's hard, but easier with such kind friends. Thank you.
