September 19 is Talk Like a Pirate Day!


Ahoy Ye Swabs!


It be the day to talk like a pirate.

Moe:

I be ready for this day, arrh!

I also be wearin' my pirate cap.  Ok, ok I took a bribe like a true scallywag.

I be's off now, I think I might be able to hold my 'captives' ransom in exchange for some of that tasty fish I know is cooking in da galley.

Aye mates, may you all sail the high seas in search of yummy plunder....and then cooked to perfection by the galley slaves!

these slaves are sweating it out at the  Foggy Goggle

Fair winds to speed you!

Arrrh! Don't be forgetting to talk like a pirate - all day!!

Finally Friday


Mindy:
So Friday is here, but our hoomans are not, they are gone for most of the day.  We will keep an eye on things.

Moe:
Me too, I can see everything from here.

Mike:
With our people gone out, I can rest up on my favorite table, it is just my size.


Cookie:
I have two photos to show everyone.  These were taken yesterday when our humans went into the city.

This sailboat first.  It was sailing around in our big harbour.  I am not much of a sailor myself, but I think these people were enjoying themselves.

Had to show you this!  Have any of you ever seen a PINK bus?
It stops at the cruise ship terminal and takes passengers for a ride.  Not sure where.

All of us hope your Friday is terrific!

Finally Friday


Mike and Moe:
We've had such a busy week patroling the perimeter of our house and checking out of the windows into our yard looking for introoders.  However, we are still on duty  - we are just taking a break.  We deserve it!


Mindy:
Grooming is very important and I need to look absolutely perfect for when our mombean brings out that flashy box and takes my photo!!


Cookie:
At last I got to have some quality time with my dadbean.  Okay, maybe I had to yowl and get his attention.   this works as you can see,.....at least for me!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Thankful Thursday


We are thankful that we get to do a post today!  Our humans have been busy with lots of relatives visiting this summer, so they have not been able to help us with more regular posts.

 Cookie:
 Ah, I need to rub my cheeks on mombean's ankle.  I like it when she spends time with me.  

 Mike:
 I am looking for the perfect nap spot.  I have a choice of the sofa downstairs or the futon upstairs...decisions, decisions.

Mindy:
 I am checking our window to view the bird TV, especially those hummingbirds coming to the feeder which is hanging just above this window.....outside of course!

Moe:

Good thing there are more windows so that I can get one to myself.  I prefer and open window, so I can hear as well as see all those tasty looking birds.


Peggy's Cove
This place is very near to us, probably about 20 miles.  Our humans took a detour recently and made a visit.


Here is our dadbean standing on the huge rocks and getting some photos.   The water you see is a small pool among all the rocks.  The ocean is behind him - you might be able to see the small glimpse of blue beyond the rocks.

Have a terrific day everyone!

Mainly Rain on Monday


Yes, it is raining, but this is a good thing.  We haven't had much rain for our garden.

Along with the rain, we had some thunder showers, however only a couple of middle sized booms!

Our brave hummingbirds still visit us even when there is rain!



Cookie says:
 I am holding my own and spend all of my time in the bathroom now.
It means I have this room all to myself and I have dry food available all the time if I want it. 
I am a bit messy with my litter box habits, but the bathroom is the best place to be because of that.
I am back to eating better now and have put on some weight.
The only meds now are Gabapentin for pain control and my Aventi nutritional supplement.

 
Mike says:
 I have some issues too, like Cookie does, probably because of our ages - Cookie and I are both around 17 give or take, we came here not knowing our ages.  Age is just a number anyway.  I still have some allergy problems and get some PrednisLone every other day or so for my allergies.   Trying to come of this stuff though.  I get a bit of the Gabapentin like Cookie does.  I have a better appetite than he does.....I love to eat....anything goes!

Mindy says:
 I sometimes have to give Mike a whap or two.....'cause, you know, he seems to need it.  Our mombean thinks we should solves our issues in a better way.  Oh, don't fee sorry for him....he is quite a bit bigger than I am.   However, I rule, hee, hee.

Moe says:
 When is it dinnertime?  In fact, I think it is about now.  We need to get right on that, fast.


 Here is our Monkshood, and it is drooping because of the rain.....which we need as already mentioned.
 Anyway we need to wrap this up as Mom and Dad bean are going out to the airport to pick up the sonbean who was at a conference in Texas.  Wonder if he brought us anything?  Toys and/or food, we are not fussy.

Happy Canada Day!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Canada Day visitor!
 
 
Mike says:
 
This is how I am going to spend this day.....zzzzzzz!

Welcome to Summer!

 
 
Summer started today, yay!  Yep, we checked the calendar and it IS the 21st.  Bonus, it has started out this morning with some sunshine.
 
 
Moe says:
 Breakfast first, then I take up my post at the window.  Lots of activity outside in the yard.
 
I keep both eyes on that tasty looking squirrel....and at times, the tasty looking chipmunk.
 
 
Mindy says:
At last, I have the bed all to myself.   I am not in any hurry whatsoever to rush into this first day of summer.   I prefer to savor it.
 
 
Cookie says:
I need a few more zzzzzz's before I get up.....unless 'breakfeast' is about to be served!
 
 Mike says:
Don't call me late for breakfast...... I am just resting my eyes, I can still hear even when you think I am not listening.
 
Because summer has officially started, things in our garden are growing and blooming, take a look:
 These columbine plants sow themselves all around our yard...sometimes there are light pink ones.


This is our magnolia tree which blooms later than other varities in our neighborhood.  It is called Oyama , a Japanese variety.
 
If you are in the northern hemisphere, have a great first day of summer otherwise have a great first day of winter!

Our Hooman Beans are Back.

 
 
They had the nerve to book a bread and breakfast place in the Magdalen Islands, Gulf of St. Lawrence.....without taking us. Humph!
 
Auntie Bean came to look after Mindy and Moe, along with help from our next door neighbour, Bruno's human.  Bruno does not have a blog.
 
Mike and Cookie went to board at the vet's.  Our veterinarian, Dr. Karen, took good care of us even if she did send home some new meds to take.  Also some new foods to try out.......that was the good part, because it comes in a can and is delicious.
 
Mike says:
  Mombean had to put this cone on me because I was attacking my ear because it was extremely itchy.   You can see the mess I made of my right ear.  This was right before our humans were due to leave, so they booked me and Cookie into the vet for those few days. 
 
My vet thinks I have allergies so I am on a course of Prednisol; also a mild pain killer to take care of
my sore mouth, as I have a few issues with my teeth.  I came home with some 'senior' foods. At least I like the new diet.
 
 
Cookie says:
 I got lots of attention from Dr. Karen when I was boarding there as well.  My issues are somewhat embarrassing  - loose stools.  I have some meds to try for my - ahem- situation.  I am already on a low protein diet, so I don't have any new foods to try out.
 
Mike and I made the best of our stay......however, we are very glad to be home and glad our hoomans finally returned and things are back to normal.

Furr..iday is Here

 
 
Mindy:
 
I reminded our mombean that we are way behind in our posts.  The good weather is finally here and now there is lots to do outside and lots going on out there too. 
 
I am watching that naughty squirrel eat the birdseed.  Mom did not manage to get a photo of a bird feeding her baby bird in this feeder.  She will have to try again.
 
***
 
Now I want to introduce this lovely kitty.
 
Meet Anders
 
She is a very pretty kitty and lives with mom and dad's oldest son.  She is a foster kitty and hasn't found the perfect home yet.....or maybe she has!
 
 
Here is sonbean fixing up the wreck room in his basement.
 
Anders is a very good supervisor and keeps track of all that goes on.
With her expert snoopervision he is sure to do a perfect job!
 
Have a fabulous Friday everyone!

Wednesday Wildlife

 
Mindy:
Here is a look at our backyard.  As you can see we have these two visitors - the third 'vishus' deer is not in view, but lurking close by.
 
I watched these two for quite a while, they came over to the bird feeder to feast on cracked corn and sunflower seeds. 
 
Our feeder attracted this duck a few minutes later.  As you can see, our lawn is only just starting to look a little bit green, Spring is slow here this year!
 
The duck was joined by another duck, then by
 our resident pheasant.
 
I wonder what they are discussing?
 
 
 

Here is stray kitty, the one we have talked about before.
However, we have discovered that this kitty has a home not to far from where we live.  It moved into our neighbourhood in December, about the time we started seeing it.  Our mombean says it is attracted by our birds at our feeder.
 
We now call it introoder cat, and it has a yard of its own.
 
We do all we can to scare it off,  we are good at growling and hissing when it comes up on our deck........it works, it is a scaredy cat!
