    1. Marmalade and Socks do have the same dad. :)
      It's nice to have the doves back!
      I need to come see Red....

    2. I think maybe Slate and Socks have the same dad too.
      Or maybe they're cousins.

    3. well, I know that dad is no longer alive....but they could be cousins, that is true! They are all related in some way around here I would guess. Peaches came around tonight...he doesn't look like any of ours...his profile is completely different!

  4. Wow - that is one polished out peanut butter jar. Love the kitties - Marmalade is so cute at the spout. Gorgeous colours in the salad. I made a spinach salad tonight with mandarin slices, nuts, currants, shaved cheddar and a hard-boiled egg. It was tasty. Happy Birthday, Lynne - Slate is such a good poser.

    1. You can never take the wild out of a cat. haha. You'd think he didn't have a nice clean waterbowl! There's just something about rainwater...all the cats love it.

  7. Love the pictures. The pb jar made me giggle!! He must have a special spoon to clean it out that well. :)

  8. Interesting variety of This and That.
    Socks . . . bless his little cotton socks . . . looking very alert . .
    Slate looks highly intelligent . .
    Marmalade might be experimenting with acoustics . . .
    Very apt name for a jar of peanut butter . . . it would be gone in a Jif with me too.
    No wonder Garden Girl likes it sunny . . .

    Like the new pic on S/B or L and T.

    Have a good day . . . :)

    1. wayyyy too much peanut butter! That's a very big jar! Ugh. I have to hide it because this happens! Sometimes he finds the hiding place!

  10. My favorite PB! Spencer and I must be kindred spirits.

  11. Never saw a peanut butter jar emptied so thoroughly! Amazing...

  12. Marmalade will get a shower if not careful! I'm glad Jif is peanut butter for you. Here it is either squeezy lemon juice in a plastic lemon or cream cleaner for household stains!

    1. that is so true....a quick downpour and he would be in for a big surprise!

  13. Hi Betsy, so sweet of Slate to send me more birthday wishes. He's such a little gentleman. Socks looks like he's up to something or at least contemplating mischief. Was so hoping that the photo of Marmalade was actually Peaches. I spent this afternoon working on my wish list. Proof of old age is wanting to gift yourself a new refrigerator. Something more fun is a curved screen TV I'm craving. It took all my will power not to have the sales guy write me up while I was at the store, but common sense took over and told me I had to do proper research first. Lynne in NC

    1. Oooh....that sounds like a very fun gift to yourself! Let me know what you end up choosing! The thinking about and shopping for the gift is half the fun!

      Guess what...Peaches was here last night and again this morning! This is a BIG improvement! I need to get my game plan down and try to lure him in that carrier! And...although he still obviously has that terrible upper respiratory infection, he looked a little better...not dehydrated and more alert. I'm sure cat milk and yummy food is helping. I don't feel like he's about to die now even though it's still urgent he get's there soon. We're moving in the right direction!

    2. Betsy. let me know if you are able to catch Peaches and get help for him. I would like to make a contribution to his medical bills. Lynne

    3. What? You are SO sweet! Of course I'll let you know. Thank you so much!

      You know, I thought about trying to trick him into that carrier this morning but it just didn't feel right. I have to be successful the first time or he will be spooked and won't get near it the next time. And I can't feed him if he's going to get put under in just an hour or two. But I'm feeling good about it all. I've done it 20 times before and I'm confident if I'm patient and continue to gain his trust it will work. I was so happy to see him there in the morning time instead of always in the dark of night. That is a huge help just right there!
