Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

 This post comes from January 2009 and was originally a Mancat Monday.


Flynn: We haven't been out walking around the fields much lately because the weather has been too bad. Now we are out, we have to make sure everything is as it should be. I am looking up across the fields to check things out.

Eric:  While Flynn is checking the top field, I will look down across the bottom fields.

Everything looked all right there so now we will do our foot patrol and check the other fields. We are glad it didn't rain and we enjoyed going out again to do our Mancat duties. There is rain forecast for the rest of the week so we may look after the wood burner instead.

The random photo was requested by the Trout Towne Tabbies who asked for 8.01.09. The nearest I have is 7.01.09, so exactly 13 years ago. I didn't have any of the boys together on that date so they get two photos.

Not sure what Flynn was looking at, probably a leaf caught in cobwebs.


Eric always preferred the small cat tree even though the other one was twice the size.
 
I am joining Athena, the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art and using these two photos.


For Flynn I used Illusion at 70%, then added Sadness at 25%.


For Eric I used Gorky at 50% then just a touch of Sadness at 15%.

It's always nice to be able to get outside again after being cooped up with bad weather.

I like the photos of the two of them walking together thru the field on patrol. They were quite impressive animals.

Jackie each post of Eric and Flynn now and back then always amazes me how they were two cats but shared the same mind and soul. They were so connected and devoted.

Cute flashback of your two angels. They loved being together. Thank you for the puzzles. XO

Yvonne said...

Great flashback pics. The artwork is gorgeous.

Cathy Keisha said...

Love this flashback and especially the pics the TTT picked.

Marv, Jo Jo, Komo, Cinnamon & Angel Nellie said...

I LOVE this flashback! Right new we are having flashbacks to Grass (instead of loads of snow). I always love the shots of the boys in the fields and the cat trees and the pots and in the hay...Heck, I just love shots of the boys! And I can't wait to do the puzzle.

Marv, Jo Jo, Komo, Cinnamon & Angel Nellie said...

Oh! I forgot! The picture of Flynn is exquisite!

Erin the Cat Princess said...

Definitely merit in doing the outdoor work whilst the sun shines, then concentrating on important indoor stuff in front of a warm fire. Such gorgeous pictures into jigsaws. I think Mrs H will be busy all week!

Love, Pam

Little Binky and Granny said...

They're both so gorgeous and the artworks are beautiful as always. We love the sadness filter, also when it's used only, but the name has to be changed in beautiful filter, because it doesn't look sad at all😸Off to the puzzle now. Extra Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend🐾😽💞

meowmeowmans said...

Wonderful memories, as always. That first shot of Flynn surveying the landscape is stunning. Hugs to you!

Fr. Tom Fishworthy said...

The art app really brings out the stripes! So good to see Eric and Flynn checking on their fields to make sure everything is as it should be. We miss them, but seeing their posts (and we're glad there are plenty) helps. xoxoxo

John Bellen said...

The boys were very conscientious about their patrolling. They knew their kingdomn and wanted to keep it safe.

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Glad they both had fun and it didn't rain.

Love the art!

Cleo said...

Looks like your Angel Boys had that field patrol thing down solid. We love their artwork. Both pieces are calming works of art.

The J-Cats said...

Such beautiful artwork of such beautiful mancats.

Angel Gracie=^o.o^= said...

Thank you Eric and Flynn for visiting after I ran off to the bridge. You two are old buddies of mine, we go back a long ways. We are together forever free of pain and can run free together.
