Whiskers on Wednesday~~Halloween Edition

It's that time of year again, the night for "black" cats - NOT black & white cats!
Personally friday night is my night to hide, besides who can sleep with all those knocks and "trick-or-treaters" at the door...little demon children, you know the ones I'm talking about! Yes, I'm a long tailed cat and that's the first thing they want to do is grab it!

Oh...and not to mention Mom who wants to dress me up every year! I heard her talking this year about some multi-colored clown wig for cats, I haven't seen one yet--geez, I hope she doesn't pull something on Friday night! Then there was this costume she tried to find:

She thought it would go "nicely" with her blog name! What am I...a dog? I haven't heard her talk about getting Rudy a costume! She said he already looked like an Ewok, what ever the hell that is!

I dress up the same every year...a cow, utters and all! I was born dressed as a cow and I happen like how I look, even if Mom calls me "fat boy"! Just don't get me near Ben Stiller (from Meet The Parents) he said he could milk cats!

Happy Halloween Everybody!!

I Can't Find It!

Help...I've lost my blogging MoJo! I think of things to post all the time, but I simply don't do it.

I missed 2 weeks of Whiskers on Wednesday, my 3rd Blogiversary on BIL's birthday (he'll ALWAYS be older than me) and my DD's 21st Birthday yesterday. There's so much going on here, I'm just not feeling the "bloggin' vibe" at the moment! Please hang with me...tomorrow is Whiskers on Wednesday, so maybe I'll have a good Halloween post to blog about?!?

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!

...the death march music!

In the morning an event will take place that I've been avoiding for quite some time now. Only the inevitable has come to pass~~

I've consumed a pretty good amount of wine this evening (the idea was to go out for Margarita's but my stomach's been tied up in knots all day), I have my valium prescription in hand and ready for the morning. The cabinets are stocked with plenty of "liquid diet" items (yuck) and I hubby has the ropes ready to hog-tie in order to get me in the car in the morning (awww, get your head out of the gutter...nothing kinky going on).
What's going on you ask? Here I'll show you...

So what happens this week? I get a head cold! I've pumped myself up for this and feel pretty ready for it...except for the fact I'm a BIG baby when it comes to pain in my mouth (I can honestly take pain anywhere else pretty darn well). They told me today that if I can't breath our of my nose or I'm running a fever they won't do the extraction. Please-please let me get this over with!

To make a long story short...I have an impacted wisdom tooth that needs to come out! Please think about me tomorrow--send me positive vibes!!

In the meantime...

Can you say Retreat?

I spent 3 days looking at this view...

While he was at his conference I spent plenty of time knitting and reading...even took a run and hiked up to this overlook...

I love this time of year, the crispness to the air and the color change in the leaves. It's really funny to see a ski resort when there's no snow, you do get a whole new perspective! We were treated to a winery tour, as well.

I'd also like to ask you to welcome the newest member of our family, I think Ace eluded to it in his post on Wednesday.
Meet Rudy~~

Milo helped pick out his own uncle! Isn't he cute!!! Of course the cat isn't so happy about these turn of events. More pics to come...

I swear I am knitting!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!

Hello...Ace here, Mom seems to be too busy to blog these days. Somethings going on I tell ya.

This is a shout out to all my feline friends out there. How many of you are being put through hard times? They go on vacation during your 16th birthday? Are they changing your food? Moving your bed? Changing things--like moving furniture? Having a little Shih Tzu come stay in YOUR house.

Yes, Milo came to visit...again!
I hiss and spit, but he just won't listen...he down right ignores me, he's not afraid of me--am I losing my power?! This time he got on MY bed, you know the big one I let "them" sleep in. Anyway, I couldn't believe he would just jump right up there while I was sleeping.
So what do I do? Hiss & reaction from him, is he stupid or something? He's supposed to be afraid of me, run yelping and screaming. Instead he ignores the King!

Now I'm hearing something about a Rudy...who?

I think I'll show them, I won't eat, drink or poop until they listen to me! Do you think it'll work??

Martha White Flour Presents....

(the title comes from the days of the Porter Waggoner show)

Kay & Ann are a HOOT!

Being a Southern gal I just had to share! (found while reading JanuaryOne's blog)

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!! Yee-Haw....


Here we are apology is necessary, I completely missed last week! The re-entry into reality really was tough!

I did have an opportunity for a photo shoot before we left for the beach, with very "cat-like" responses!

Things started out as normal as you can get...with a cat who HATES the camera!

No lie...after the first shot he stood up, turned around and repositioned himself!


I was shot with the Evil...I'll vaporize you this very minute...eyes!

So, I put the camera away!

I will add that after being gone for a week his attitude has changed BIGTIME! He's affectionate (to a degree), follows us EVERYWHERE, eats whatever we put in his bowl and has pooped in the living room floor! So much for being nice...
