Yummy Monkey The Second.




 Duffy , " I know! I'm looking a bit frazzled! That's because we had to bury Yummy Monkey over the weekend. He was "non salvageable" and expired. Kaput ! "

                                                             Non-Salvageable! Kaput!











 Duffy , " Remember these three who made it off  The Island of the Monkeys' and who weren't turned into Monkey Stew?"










 Duffy, " Well today , one of them will be crowned , Yummy Monkey The Second."











 Duffy, "I will perform the Sniff Test to determine who will win this title. Hmmm. Nope. Not you!"












 Duffy , " Sniff. Sniff. Nope! Not you either!"











 Duffy," You in the red monkey hat! You have officially been chosen as Yummy Monkey The Second. What did you two monkeys say? You'll start a mutiny if you aren't chosen?!"












 Duffy, " Mutiny or no mutiny , I stand firm in my resolve and selection. Welcome to my singular madness ( friend, foe, friend, foe , friend . . . ) Yummy Monkey The Second. It will be interesting to see how long you last in my servitude .  Bwahahahahaha!!"

Sunday Selfies with Malou.






                                                   * Click to biggify the photos if you like*
 Malou, " I am joining The Cat On My Head today for their Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. I am not pleased with my photo though as it makes me look portly or stoutly or plumpishly. It must be the angle. . . "











 Malou , " Maybe if I keep my head down a little bit . . . "











Malou, "  Now that's a little bit better...I tucked some of my furs in behind the table leg . . . "












Malou , " Or maybe I'll try it from an entirely different angle. You decide which is better! And don't forget to Hop and to visit efurryone else who participated in Sunday Selfies this Sunday.























Have yourselves a Sunny Sunday!
See you tomorrow.

Bedhead and Dahlias


LP ,  "As some of you may know, Esme sleeps in my arms every night. She is not a "morning kitty" though. This is what I see every morning as I climb out of the bed. There is something about the back of a cat's head that is so endearing. No Esme, don't get up! Sleep in as long as you like, sweetie."

















LP, " Here is a photo of the dahlias we bought at the side of the road last weekend to carry you into the weekend."
















Have a Fabulous Friday and weekend!
See you on Sunday for Sunday Selfies.

Flower Puppies.









Duffy , " We went to our favourite place!"










Duffy, " All the pumpkins there are ready for purchase now."











Duffy, " The farmers here have fun with their displays. Look at that big ole half moon in the tree."









Duffy, " It's time to decorate the home with decorative squash as a reminder that Autumn has officially arrived!"









Duffy, " These green gourds are sold to dry out. Once they are dry, you can use them as canteens, or bird houses or even a vase!"




















                                                      Fresh Beets!











                                          Fresh Artichokes!









Apples! Apples! Apples!










It's good to be silly.









Can you spot the black cat?

Duffy, " LP called us Flower Puppies. I am NOT for sale!"
