Photo Hunt - Memorial

Photo Hunters

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

For our 'memorial' photo this week, we want to show you this one, taken by our mombean a couple of weeks ago:

This sculpture was carved as a memorial to the courage of the fishermen living in Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia. It took William deGarthe, the artist and sculptor who lived in the cove, ten years to complete. This memorial covers a 30-meter granite outcrop. Depicted are St. Michael, guardian angle of fishermen; several fishermen, their wives and children. The information is quoted from this site:
Destination Nova Scotia.

Mindy: That is a lot of work but the results are worth it. Mom says he even carved his pet seagull "Joe", into the sculpture, how nice.

Moe: I am glad I did not have to pose like "Joe the seagull", did. Ten years is a long time to complete the sculpture.

Here I am posing with my foster brofur "Mike". Mom says he is very loud and talks back at her. He's a good snooze buddy though.

Life is Grand Award

We received the Life Is Grand Award from Tiger Lily and Cliff and Olivia
Thank you very much!

First: we must link to the kitties that gave us the award, which we have done. Next, we must give five reasons why life is grand.

1. We have beans that love us and take care of us. They spoil us with stinky goodness, ham, chicken and those bags of Temptations.

2. we all have our very own napping spots, most of them near a window.

3. Sometimes dadbean gets up in the middle of the night and he will give us a snack, usually because we insist on it and he is good enough to give in. Sure makes life grand.

4. We gots our own blog, even if it takes our beans a while to help us with the posts!

5. We think it is grand to be part of the blogging community and meet lots of friends.

Now we will pass this award on to five of those friends:

Our furcousin,Mickey, who needs some extra thoughts and prayers. He was back to the vet on Wednesday and his liver levels are still up. Now his vet wants him to have an ultrasound in order to pinpoint the reasons for this. He is not crazy about taking antybioticks, but he is getting them. Please get well soon.

Our good friends Roxy and Lucky. They need our thoughts and support. Their mom and Plus One were on their way to karate and got hit by a car that didn't stop after hitting them! They are okay, thank goodness.

Poppy Q, in far off New Zealand, we love reading about her adventures.

Jasmim is a fairly new blogger we have gotten to know. She is so darn cute, and we love reading about her day, but first we translate from Portuguese. Not hard to do.

One of our regular visitors is The Creek Cats. They are a group of rescued kitties and one dog that have a great blog and have lots of fun.

Hope everyone is having a great Friday!

Moe: I sure am, 'cause I found where mom hid the Temptations!

Wordless Wednesday

Moe: Do I look cozy on a rainy, damp Wednesday?

Mindy: I am taking it easy

Mindy again: watching the birdies

Bono (aka Bon Bon): Meet my snooze buddy, Mike. He's the one that has the brown and white furs. Our beans are fostering him.

This is a picture of a serious brush fire, taken at the end of our road last week. It got out of control and destroyed eight homes and damaged another ten. People and their pets had to flee from it and go to the community center or stay with friends and family. We are safe, but are sorry for those who lost their homes.
