We’re really enjoying our new rustic weathered, stacked and stained frame from Rustic Springs down in Mississippi, and think it makes Quint’s “Summer’s End 2015” painting from last year look superb. There’s something about that slightly spiced orange color we really like. Hmmm, spiced orange…. orange…. orangey orange…. ginger orange…. ginger orange cats…

Bing! Glad we figured out that attraction.

Thank you, John and Mary from Rustic Springs! We love it!

We bought this basket years ago, specifically for the cats. It sat ignored all this time and then, one day, Pia was all like, “Basket! Where have you been all my life!?!?”

It was so hot here a couple of weeks ago, Mom decided to cool some hot cats down with a bit of plain shaved ice. Tessa loved it. Everyone else ignored it. Okay, fine.

Dust Inspector Quint, his tongue curling in distain, finds dust on top of the refrigerator. “Lady, you’re slacking.” Guess we know what we’ll be doing this weekend. Have a good one!

06/20/2016 – Special

A couple of weeks ago, Miss Newton had her dental work done and she’s feeling pretty special about surviving that. So imagine, if you will, how much MORE special she felt when she received a package in the mail from someone very special herself – the Tooth Fairy!

The package contained some crocheted things – a red fish, a soft multi-colored fish, and a chicken drumstick, and they all smelled really, really good! Even the Tooth Fairy’s card smelled good!

“I like these fishies,” she said. “But I wasn’t the only one who had my toofies cleaned. I bet my brother Quint would like these, too!”

You all know how polite Miss Newton is, always sharing her toys and kibble treats. She even dictated a thank you email for Mom to send to the Tooth Fairy! That’s just the kind of girl Miss Newton is.

Or, just maybe, she shared her Tooth Fairy fishies with Quint because she wanted the chicken drumstick all to herself. That girl loves her some chicken drumstick!

Quint didn’t need to be asked twice if he’d like the Tooth Fairy’s fishies.

These are for nomming,” he said, and got to work putting the bites on those fishies.
