Photo Hunt - Support

Photo Hunters

The Photo Hunters Scavenger Hunt was started by tnchick, and anyone can play along.

Hello everyone. The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is 'support'. Our mombean and dadbean are always telling us they need to 'support' our love of tasty treats. At first we really didn't understand what this means. Then they showed us what they use to get us our yummy treats. Here is a photo.

These are coins. They don't smell or taste very good.

However, if you take these to the store you can trade them for bags of our favorite treats in the whole world - Temptations - ummmm, yum, yum.

Humans love to carry lots of these coins around with them and trade them for all kinds of things. We wonder though, where they get them in the first place. Our dad and mom beans claim they gets them from their day hunting jobs. It takes a LOT of these coins to 'support' our bags of crunchies, stinky goodness and treats - maybe a truckload at least.

We appreciate their efforts, we really do. Here is a picture of us enjoying some crunchies that 'accidentally' fell on our floor.

We hope our legs will 'support' us after we finish eating our fill!
One more thing, we got our mom to (finally) open the Chicken flavoured Temptations bag!

Friday - Hugs 'n Purrs & Birthday Wishes

We both want to take the time in our Friday post to send some of our 'Cat Blogosphere' members a bunch of hugs, purrs, and prayers. Some's not feeling the best lately or it is their beans that need our healing thoughts. So, to all dat needs them, we send our best wishes that things get better.

It is also Friday, that means da weekend is here. This is a time our beans are around for more of the next couple of days. Great, more time with us. So, it's a time for us to relax, really relax, and be waited on, heh, heh. Okay, that is our plan for this weekend, how about all of you?

Moe: Mindy, did you know mom has a new mega bag of Temptations tucked away in da cupboard in da kitchen? Chicken flavour, not even opened.

Mindy: Did you say chicken flavoured? We definitely need to find a way to get her to open that bag.

Today is a special day, we want to wish our furcousin Mickey a Happy 15th Birthday!

Birthday wishes also to Adan and his mom Michico and to Billie.

T-13 Things We Love

Today we thought we would do a Thursday 13 with photos. The photos will show you 13 things we love. Hope you enjoy!

We LOVE looking out the windows. Moe is on the left and Mindy is on the right in this photo.

Catnip!!!! You can guess that we love it.

I love it, when mom gives me tummy rubs!

Another thing we love - cardboard. You can create art wif it.

These look a bit like squillions. Our Aunti Bean gave us these, we love them.

We love toys and love it more when our beans play wif us.

Our favorite china mug. We hope mom will fill it with treats.

We love our quilts. Here is Quilt No. 1

Quilt No. 2

And who doesn't love those tasty Temptations treats!

We love our mom, so therefore we are letting her post two pictures of flowers that she likes. This one is a Peony and her brother gave her the plant.

Mom also loves this Clematis flower. It doesn't bloom every year, but this year it did!

This one we saved for last -
We love and miss our brofur, Skie, who waits at the Rainbow Bridge.

Cold Box Meme

Our furcousin, Mickey, tagged us for this meme. This one is very easy.

"A fun and simple MEME for the hot summer. Show us a photo of the front of your Cold Box and tell us about at least one thing on it and one thing you keep inside of it! Tag your friends and remember to stay COOL!"

Are you ready? This is our cold box. It has a 'to do' list and a 'grocery list'. Oh, and some recipes and magnets (we need to get some new magnets). The grocery list does not have much on it because we just got some groceries. The 'to do' list says someone has to get the pine needles out of the gutters. Mom said the gutters are attached to the roof, who would have guessed!

Inside the cold box is cottage cheese (our favorite) and a whole bunch of other stuff we'd like to investigate, especially if there is stinky goodness in there.

The other cold box we have is really an Ice Box. It is in the room off the kitchen.
It has all kinds of things on it, even more than the Cold Box. There is a schedule to keep track of which week is organic & recycling pickup week - the alternate week is for trash pickup. There are nicer magnets - see the big one of the Bald Eagle?
And inside? Lots of things we'd like to eat - fish for instance. However, this box makes everything hard, rigid and very cold. Frozen, mom calls it. We declare this box useless.

We also have a bulletin board in da kitchen, but we'll save that for another time.

In order to keep this going and have some more fun, we will tag:
Luxor, The Cat Realm, Sunny, Ollie and Rascal,SophieKitty, Derby

Well all this talk about the Cold Box is making me hungry!

I agree, let's go and keep an eye out, and be ready when someone opens it.

.....and that won't take long!

We have a question. Do other cats get this message from Blogger "autosave failed" and next "We're sorry, but we were unable to complete your request". It sometimes takes us a long time to get our post published.

Close to Home

Today, instead of our being in front of the camera, we have decided to do a photoshoot of places and things close to our home.

This is our magnolia tree in our front yard. Mom saved some seed from this tree and got them to germinate. She gave away baby magnolia trees to da neighbours. One tree for sure has 'taken'..... and now is a whopping six inches high, ha, ha.

This is our azalea bush in our backyard.

And in our side yard - a lilac bush

Moving along our road to "the Trail". It used to be a railway for trains, but the trains and their rails are gone. Now it has been rebuilt for recreation - walking, cycling, horseback riding - it goes for miles and miles.

Near the Trail is Lookout Park. It is a natural preserved park with mostly native trees and only a few paths are mowed for getting around. There are lots of birds here. Mom sometimes picks blackberries here.

On one side of the park, is the wharf. It gets used a lot. The people on the wharf are hoping to catch some mackerel. If you catch one, you have to put it in your bucket, because the seagulls will steal it when you are busy trying to catch another fish.

Follow another path in the park and you arrive at a small beach. The small house and studio are owned by an artist. The tide seems to be out.

Here is a view from the small beach.

Closer to shore, a mama duck came along with her small babies.

We think they were headed for the salt marsh, which is on the landward side of the small beach.

We've come to the end of our tour. We hope you all enjoyed the photos! Have a great Sunday everyone.

, Mindy and Moe.
