Friday Flashback and Caturday Art and 16th Blogoversary.

First of all I want to say that Wednesday 20th July was our 16th Blogoversary. The boys may no longer be here but the memories remain forever. Here is the link to our very first post  for those who haven't seen it.

This week Flynn gets the longer post and Eric the one photo post.

Bath Time February 2008

Furrst of all you find yourself a maggerzeen that your mum has left furr 10 sekkunds. (That's all it takes, just 10 sekkunds)

Then you lie yourself across it so your mum knows it is yours, and start baffing.

Don't furrget your tummy. Don't let anyone rush you.

Then spread yourself out again, just in case mum has any ideas of having her magerzeen or seat back.

And a one photo post from Eric.
Mancat Monday with my Dad.

I've been helping dad to move bales of straw from the barn to the little shed with his little tractor. This tractor is a Ferguson T20 and is often known by people as the 'Little Grey Fergie.' Although it is very old, nearly as old as dad, he still uses it on the farm for different things because it can get in places his big tractor can't, and when the fields get very muddy in the winter, the little tractor doesn't make as much of a mess.


I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.

For Flynn I used Monet at 60%, then Scribble at 25%.

For Eric it was Sunshine at 60%, then Van Gogh at 35%.

We really love this week's Caturday art! #1 will have to consult with Jackie about that.

We love to do the same on anything one of our humans might be reading. Mom is feeling like a slacker with only a ten year blog anniversary. She says, she will never make it six more years. Congratulations! We are delighted to still be able to read about Eric and Flynn.

Eric sure was getting his love cuddles with his Dad:)

Meezer's Mews & Terrieristical Woofs said...

Oops, I forgot to say:
Happy Blogoversary!!
That is a LONG time!!
Congrats!!

CCL Wendy said...

Happy 16th Blogoversary! Your boys still bring us joy after all these years. Surely Flynn must be clean by now, however the pictures of him and his ritual baff are priceless. The same can be said for Eric who is such a big help to his Dad. He sure is an armful.

The lovely effects put a whole new spin on the pictures. Very artsy indeed.

Lizzie said...

Congratulations. 16 years is a long time. I have been following you for probably 14 years and do miss your boys. Funny and wise. I'm so glad you keep them alive for us with your weekly visits to stories and pictures from the past.

Marvelous Marv said...

WoW! Its hard to believe you and your boys have been apart of my life for 13 of your 14 years. In a couple of weeks, this will be the 12th year since Nellie started and that would not have happened without you guys! Marv wants to sing you the song!

In Lucy's memory said...

Oh, I enjoyed this post very much. And reading the boys' very first blog and learning more about them. Congrats on your anniversary! I'm so happy that I came upon you boys and always look forward to reading about a new adventure. We have many homeless kitties here, but no ginger and white ones. We've named them all, and if an orange kitty ever does show up one day, I'll name him/her either Eric or Flynn. Mom's catwork is very nice. Hope Mom and Dad are doing well. Until next time...Jean

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Happy Blogoversary!

Love the art as always x

Cathy Keisha said...

Very important, Flynn, to lay across both pages so she doesn't start to read the one. Concats on the Blogoversary.

John Bellen said...

What a good idea Flynn had to use the magazine as a bath-mat. That probably made things smoother and simpler. And you know I love seeing pictures of Eric with his dad.

I remember the old style of your blog! Sixteen years ago! So many changes. Sigh. (And Fat Eric; I recall him, too.)

meowmeowmans said...

Happy Blogoversary to you, dear friends. Yes, Eric and Flynn most certainly do live in our hearts and memories. We love the tutorial memory by Flynn, and Eric and Dad having a snuggle made us smile so big.

Happy Anniversary

Katie Isabella said...

You know, whenever I say it's a joy to see these boys and what they are doing and even more, what they think about everything, I am not exaggerating. This was a joy to read and see.

The J-Cats said...

We do enjoy seeing all these flashbacks. Many of them are from before We were even born.

And, as always, the art work is lovely.

Summer said...

Belated happy blogoversary! I'm so glad you are still doing it.
