Friday Flashback and Caturday Art

 This week the flashback comes from 2009 and is called:

Evening Strolls.

Eric: While the weather is hotter, it is too hot to walk far during the day so mum takes us out later in the evening when it is nice and cool.The smells all seem stronger and more interesting then too.

Flynn: It is nice to just sit and enjoy the cool freshness.

Eric: The water in the horse troughs tastes better too.

Flynn: Yup, we enjoy going out when it is nearly dark. It is a mancatly thing to do.

I am joining Athena The Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.

For Eric I started with Floating at 45% to lighten the picture, Then Flow at 30%

For Flynn's art I used Shattered at 40% then also used Flow at 40%.

I'll bet they did enjoy the night smells. The art is sure pretty, such sweet boys.

Gee! That would be neat to go out in the dark
Mum is a bit nervous of letting me out in the dark
because of my black furs! Darn!
Maybe if she gets a better light...

Purrs, Julie

We like evenings, too. If i let Tripod SissyCat out at that time we have to stay with her as there are coyotes in the area.

I wonder if there were more bugs and critters for them to sniff and hunt? Seems like the evening is when 'activity ' starts up.
They sure were enjoying themselves.

Evenings (and very early in the mornings) definitely is the best time to be out and about exploring! You boys had so much fun, so many wonderful adventures. ♥

Things smell better at night!

Lynn said...

I, Precious, spend lots of night hours looking out in the dark. Lynn keeps a rubber "deer trough" going when it isn't freezing. I wonder if I'l like a drink of deer water? Fur now, she's keeping a bucket fur the birdies in the bath tub so I drink it. Then she has instant water fur replacing ice.

As always, your artwork is beautiful. We love to be out at night during any season of the year. But Mom doesn't let us stay out very long because of all the coyotes in the area. We have never seen them near our house at night but we can hear them, and mom sees lots of reports about them not being too far from us.

Have a great weekend.

Evenings are always nice to be outside when the weather is good.

Eastside Cats said...

Oh Angel Kitties...to be where it's hot!
Winter cannot end too soon for me.
Lovely art, and I'm off to puzzle...thanks.

Smells DO seem stronger at night, at least in the summer, don't they? Maybe the heat of the day suppresses them. Evening walks are very pleasant in the warm months. I'm glad the boys enjoyed them.

Meezan said...

"Mancatly"...lol. Love the cat art and thanks for the puzzles. I had planned on just starting one of them, but I finished it. I'll do the other one later. Have a great weekend. :-)

Mummy thinks there are scary things out at night, like wild dogs and jackals. We can hear them sometimes. But the truth is, We are indoor kitties. We don't go out during the day either. We are sorry about that when We see the boys having such fun in the Great Outdoors.

It is fun to be out in the dark as there are new animals to see if you are lucky

In Lucy's memory said...

Would love to have accompanied you both on a mancat evening stroll. Mom's catwork is very nice. Hope Mom and Dad are both doing well. Until next time...Jean

Three Chatty Cats said...

I didn't know that going out when it is almost dark is a mancatly thing to do. Learn something new every day...!

meowmeowmans said...

We bet there were different things to see and smell in those early evenings. What a great memory of your boys. XO

Awww! As soon as you said smells get stronger at night, it brought me right back to Summer and the intense night smell. Nothing like it. :-) xo
