Favourite Chair.





 Malou , " Hi there! I am sitting on LP's favourite chair. It's very low to the ground and only the cats use it, but it is her favourite chair anyway. It's old she says. Very, very old."







 Malou , " Can you see the back of the chair and all the hanging threads? Some of the flower pattern has been scratched out. . . so to speak. I make my eyes big and round and insist I'm not the one clawing it all up! I understand it used to be all perfect and pristine before we cats came along but I'm innocent!"









 Malou , " Well, I suppose that should  be I'm innocent because . . . I'm not the ONLY one clawing it all up! Efurryone loves this chair , not just LP. It's where we like to leave our mark!"








 Malou , " It's right by the radiator, toasty warm and tucked into a corner. What? I DID NOT just scratch the back of the chair right in front of you!"









Malou , " Maybe LP will get lost , um, I mean get busy somewhere else now so that I can get back to my chair scratching radiator worshipping in peace! "









Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

First Grub, than Bugs.





 
 Mitalee , " Nom, nom, nom. I love my wet grub.Grub is a strange word isn't it? Grub rhymes with slug. And bug. And dug.  I dug bugs. . . I dig bigs? "









 Mitalee , " Nom, nom, nom. I wouldn't want to eat a slug though. . . . but I do enjoy hunting for bugs!"








 Mitalee , " Nom. nom. nom. I guess that would make me a grub loving bug hunter. "








 Mitalee , " That was tasty! Now time to hunt for those bugs that I've been talking about!"











Have a Fabulous Friday and weekend!
See you Monday.

Head Rush.







 Levon , " I'm trying to give myself a head rush!"









 Levon , " You know. . . when the brain doesn't receive enough oxygen. . ."









 Levon , " And you start feeling really lightheaded. . . "








 Levon , " Wow! I'm seeing a lot of stars now!"








Levon , "I feel a bit too dizzy though. Time to stop the head rush!"









Have a great day!

Chasing the Sun.






                                        *Click to biggify these pics if you like*
 Issa , " Autumn in Vancouver often means we will wake up to fog. The fog is heavy and typically doesn't lift until late afternoon. That's why in the morning , we all pile into the car and head for the mountains. We call it, chasing the sun!"








 Issa , " The drive isn't too long or far but look what we find once we get out of the car! "









 Issa , " Do you see all that white stuff behind the trees? That's not snow. It's fog!!"




























 Issa, " The sky up here changes from a royal blue to a turquoise , almost greenish colour."









 Issa , " Compared to the fog and grey at city level , it feels as though we have fallen down a rabbit hole into a magical place when we are up here!"









 Chasing the Sun.









 Issa , " Blissful."









Duffy , "Altogether blissful! Peace out."













Have a Wonderful Day!
See you soon.

 Duffy , " After we visited Clooney and Neytiri , we hit the road again."







 Duffy , "Eventually ,  we arrived at our Bed and Breakfast, Casa Grande, in Penticton. Look up. Waaaay up! It's ME , Duffy! Can you see me on the left hand side of our balcony?"







 Issa , " I also loved the balcony and everything about our B+B! I especially enjoyed keeping my eye on the neighbourhood from this vantage point!"







 Issa , " Our suite was called , The Hideaway."








 Duffy , "Our Innkeeper's name was , Happy. Here she is greeting Duffy. They became good pals."








 Issa and Duffy , " The scenery in The Bench area of the Okanagan is absolutely beautiful! The following are some of our favourite photos taken of that area."









































































Issa , " Do we have to stay in the city? I think I would prefer being a country dog!"












We hope you enjoyed a glimpse into our Autumn Trip!
See you soon.
