Shopping Around the World

Hi everyone! Today we are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and  Bacon’s Shopping Around the World which is being hosted by our friends Kali and Shoko.

This month they asked for a seafood dish. Mom doesn’t eat seafood except for solid white albacore tuna and even that she has a love/hate relationship with.

Big mistake sending Joanie and Sammy to the store for the ingredients.

Tuna Macaroni Salad


Box of small shell pasta $1.00

mayonnaise $2.99 for Hellman’s 30 oz.

5 oz. can of solid white albacore tuna in water -drained and flaked  store brand free this week with purchase of Hellman’s.

1 cucumber-peeled and chopped $1

salt and pepper


Cook pasta according to directions on box, drain then add cucumber, tuna, salt and pepper and mayonnaise, stir together and chill in refrigerator.

Sorry, that is the best we could do for seafood. Mom usually shares the tuna with us too so there is less in the salad.

I got to see Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much. I am going to see her on Monday too.

The A-Z Blogging Challenge ends tomorrow- any guesses on what Mom made for Z? She is very proud of it, there was no pattern so she made it up as she went along. Sometime this week we will be having a giveaway for 2 lucky winners to split all the A-Z loot.




Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Sorry I am so tired and weak from lack of treats ( Mom is rationing them).

I am thankful that I have a stash of treats, if only I could get them out of the package myself. I am thankful for Grammie too, I love her so very much even if she didn’t come inside to say hello to me when she picked up Mom yesterday.

Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day.

I love all treats
they is all I wants to eats.
Give me Temptations and Party Mix
make sure you give me more than six.
I have yet to meet a treat I don’t like
regular food can take a hike.

Sammy is posingwith the Whale for the A-Z Blogging Challenge. It must be a baby whale, it is kind of small. I am sure The Trout Talking Tabbies will approve of this one.

Mom is participating in Wandering Through the Shelves Thursday Movie Picks, TV edition:police- here are her 3 chocies:

  1. Shades of Blue- Currently is season 2, this show with Ray Liotta and J-Lo is well written and the acting is so good.
  2. Life on Mars ( 2006) – British TV series that ran for 2 seasons. A police officer gets in an accident that somehow sends him back to the 1970’s.
  3. Life on Mars ( 2008)- American remake that was just as good as the original. The character development and 1970’s costumes were fantastic.

And here are The Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is _______________________________.

2. If I could afford a billboard, it would say ___________________________________.

3. I have a hard time                              .

4. I really enjoy                               .



Temptations Tuesday

Hi everyone! Today is not usually my day to write, but Mom said I could because I have lots to tell you and Thursdays are busy with blog hops.

Grammie was here Monday and look what she bought for ME. My favorite flavor of Temptations. I love her so very much.

Mom says I can’t eat as many treats as I want anymore because I have high blood pressure. I am taking a pill for it though and it is fine now so I don’t know why I can’t keep having lots of treats. Maybe if Mom would stop schlepping me off to the vets my blood pressure wouldn’t be so high.

I got mail on Monday too! My thoughtful, sweet and handsome purrince sent me this beautiful card.

And my purrince and I got to spend time together at an amusement park as part of Blogville’s Spring Break. You can see us and lots of others having fun over on Madi’s blog.

You all had a lot of good guesses on what today’s A-Z Blogging Challenge item would be, but no one guessed an Uncle Sam Hat. Any guesses for V?



Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone!   I am practicing my pole dancing for Cinco de Mayo. That is my favorite day of the year, Daddy gives me $5 and Grammie does too. All I need to do is a little pole dance and tip my head toward my collection cup.

I got to see Grammie on Saturday, she stayed with us while Mom and Dad went to an Open House at a local garden center. I love my Grammie so very much! I will see her tomorrow too-yippee!

Sammy thinks he is so special because his Delorean came in 3rd place for fastest car in The Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby and Jackson Galaxy was a guest judge. When Mom told Grammie she asked if there were more than 3 entries- MOL! Yes, there were at least 10.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone!

  Today is Q day for the A-Z Blogging Challenge, this is supposed to be a Queen’s crown. Does it look like one?

Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter S. Here is my poem:

Some people’s singing voices are nice to hear
Mom’s makes me want to drink a beer.
In college choir she was told to mouth the words
she should because her singing is for the birds.
Good thing she only sings Christmas songs
I have never heard so many wrongs.
Good thing Grammie bought me ear muffs
so I don’t have to stuff my ears with potato puffs.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to have lunch with Grammie on Wednesday. I love her so very much!

And the winner of the Animal Hearted giveaway is Marg’s Animals. And Mom has even agreed to add in some crocheted toys too!

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Maybe someday Mom will let me come up with two.

1. The most interesting museum I have been to is __________________________.
2. The most interesting historical place I have been to is __________________________.
3.                            is back!

4. I was surprised                             .


It’s Monday!

Hi everyone! We were very sad to learn that sweet Nellie left for The Rainbow Bridge on Friday. Rest in Peace our dear friend.


Mom is letting me write today because I didn’t get to yesterday. You know who is better than The Easter Bunny? Grammie!!! I love her so very much!

Look at all these goodies! They are for everyone except I got to pick one bag just for me. I picked the purple bag.

Mom planted some cat grass for me, but most of it just started to SPROUT ( #PMT phothunt)   @tonkstail

I even visited with The Great One. She seems to like me, she kept handing me toys. All the other kitties were hiding.

Today is the letter N for the A-Z Blogging Challenge.

   We have a crocheted NIP tea bag.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww… Mondays blog hop, we are skipping the reading one today because Mom is lazy.


Thankful Thursday

HI everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.I got to spend time with Grammie on Wednesday. I love her so very much! I helped her and Mom stuff eggs for “The Great One”. They are going to have an egg hunt with her today because they won’t get to see her on Easter. Mom also got her a shopping cart, but I think Mom got it for herself to torture us with. 

Today is K day on the A-Z Challenge and K is for Kiss ( a Hershey’s one).

Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter R. And here is my poem:

Revenge can be sweet
even better than a treat.
I am sick of the twice daily wet whillies
they give me the chillies
and all these trips to the vet
I just can’t forget.
You better watch out
I will get even without a doubt.

My revenge is going to be telling you all some of the dumb things my Mom has done recently like eating moldy bread. And remember the Mother’s Day invitation she showed you last week ? Well, she didn’t realize she needed to type the information into the card so she sent Grammie, her sister and niece an invitation from Susan and Sharon to go to brunch at the Bluff Lake Cafe. Luckily, they all know she is a ditz and figured out it was from her.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. An Easter (or Passover) tradition I have is ______________________________.

2. My favorite flavor of ice cream is ____________________________.

3. One of my favourite Easter/Passover memories is                                                 .

4. My favourite Spring flower is                                   .


The Catburry Bunny Auditions-Part 2

Hi everyone!! I haven’t seen my Grammie in days, I miss her. I love her so very much. I did talk to her on the telephone though and she is coming to see me tomorrow-yippee!

And the winner of the Easter mat and crocheted eggs is Messymimi-congratulations!!! She has a cat that looks like Brody, be sure to go over and see for yourself.

We also want to wish Marg of Marg’s Animals a very Happy Birthday!!!!!

And now for the rest of the Catburry Bunny Auditions:

E is for Egg

Hi everyone! I have had a rough week, Mom dragged me off to the VET so they could steal my blood. Snowball came to for her rabies shot too. I will admit that I wasn’t my normal sweet self, I hissed and growled. Apparently the wet whillies Mom gives me are working so I don’t need to go back to the thyroid pills.

I haven’t seen my Grammie since Monday. I love her so very much, I hope I get to see her soon. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, I  am thankful for all of you. Mom said I can even do an Easter giveaway.

This catnip mat and 2 Easter eggs are the prize. Mom also made another egg for the A-Z challenge too. Just comment on today’s post, feel free to tell me how pretty I am. I will announce the winner on Sunday.

Sammy did so well with his poem last week that I let him do this week’s poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day too.

At Cat Scouts I went on a quest
it was harder than a test.
We had to read a map
and walk a long ways without a nap.
It was still a lot of fun,
I enjoyed being with everyone.

And last, but not least are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1.I don’t understand why ________________is so popular?

2. My in case of emergency person is_________________.

3. There is so much                               !

4. I would be lost without                             .


The Catburry Bunny Auditions-Part 1

Hi everyone!

Yes, I have bunny ears on and Mom is going to pay for this. I do make a cute bunny though, don’t I? I haven’t seen Grammie since Thursday-phooey! I love her so very much, I hope she visits me tomorrow.

Sammy wants to show some photos of his Delorean he made for the Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby. He wasn’t able to get the photos up on the Scouts website so this is a first look. He wanted a rust vest to look like Michael J Fox, but Mom is apparently a little color blind- MOL!
