The Jetty.




                                           *Click to Biggify if you like*
 Issa and Duffy, " We went to the jetty and it was brilliant out! We felt so happy!"









 Issa and Duffy, " Until the hoomans told us they would be leaving us again! This time they will be spending American Thanksgiving with family in Sunny California!"










Issa and Duffy, " But it is sunny here! Why would they need to go to Sunny California?!!"









 Issa and Dufyy, "Eventually the beauty that surrounded us softened our annoyance. Hoomans do what hoomans want to do . . .  whether we like it or not!"







 Issa , " It has been cold here in Vancouver but the sun has been out. The sun combined with the cold makes everything look crisp, crystal clear, soft and murky all at once."





























 Duffy, " Did you cool cats out there enjoy the birds?! We put them in there just for you!"
















 Duffy, " We will miss the hoomans. "









Issa and Duffy, " Hopefully the sun will continue to shine for us all while they are away. We will see you when they return! Take care , friends."








All the critters , " Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends! "






Have a Fabulous Friday and weekend!
See you soon.

No New Tale to Tell.





Mitalee , " Last week you may recall Malou claimed this as her corner."









Mitalee , " Hmm. Malou's Corner. It does sound quaint."








Mitalee , " But of course we all know it is actually Mitalee's Corner. And let's be frank , Mitalee rules over everything!"










Mitalee , "Afterall, there can only be ONE queen in the cottage. That would be ME.But of course! Queen Mitalee HoneyBee."









Mitalee , " I guess there is no new tale to tell you where that is concerned!"










Mitalee , " And now the Queen must rest. There is much to do once I awaken."








Have a great day!
See you soon.

Esme and the tea rose plant.




 Esme , " I have been very un-coperative with the flashy box lately. I see it and I duck , run , turn , lower my eyes, twist and dance! Anything to photo bomb the outcome. But today I decided to stick around."










 Esme , " It's been some time since I was last on the blog and I wouldn't want you to miss me too much!"









 Esme , " This tea rose plant doesn't taste as good as it looks!"










Esme , " Look! I'm not turning my head away flashy box! I'm glad I was able to have a little visit on the bloggie today.I'll try to be better about the flashy box catching my image in the future. Promise."










Have a Terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.

Making Wine with Levon.






 Levon , " I am in Daddyman's home office. In his newspaper basket!"










 Levon , " This is where he keeps all the newspapers he means to read. At some point. When he has a moment. They collect quickly! "










 Levon, " I like to stomp around inside the basket. I call it making wine. Newspaper wine!"










 Levon, " The basket rocks from left to right while I am making my newspaper wine. It isn't particularly stable."










 Levon , " That's part of the fun!"











Levon , " And I know Daddyman appreciates the pummeled and wrinkled papers when my work is done.That's when I ask myself , what would he do without me ?!! "










Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

A Dollop of Cute with Mitalee.







 Mitalee , " Hooray! I have been asked to pose for you so that you can have a little bit of cute at the end of your week. I, of course, LOVE to pose!"









 Mitalee , " Let's see , what should I begin with?!"











 Mitalee , " What about the relaxed kitty with nary a worry pose?"










 Mitalee , " Or perhaps the contemplative movie star pose?!"











Mitalee , " Or maybe I should just give you a nice, big smile? That's the best dollop of cute wouldn't you agree?! "











Have a Fabulous Friday and weekend!
See you Monday.

Checking for intruders with Leo.






 Leo, " I just came back inside after having been out on my balcony!"










 Leo , " I thought I heard a whoosh , swoosh, flutter , rustle. Do you know I have had a few birds fly into my room when the window is opened wide enough for me to be out on my balcony? They eventually find their way out . . . with my encouraging and persistant help of course. . . "










 Leo, " This is the reason I give a thorough sniff around when I come back inside. I am checking for possible intruders!"









 Leo, " It looks as though the coast is clear!"










Leo, " Thank Cod! It's a circus in here when birds fly in!"











Have a great day!
See you soon.
