Flower Tortie #MewsicMovesMe

The theme of this week's Mewsic Moves Me blog hop is songs about flowers or gardens. Music aside, isn't this picture of Mudpie in a flower frame a masterpiece? I threw it together in 30 seconds and just love it to pieces!

I have to start with a Conway song I've featured before, but it's extra special to me because it's the song that made me fall in love with him 30 years ago. The first time I heard it I thought his voice was the most beautiful thing I'd ever heard, and that opinion never has nor never will change. 

We hope you enjoyed our picks this week!

Caturday Art

Meows from Mudpie!

Keep your paws crossed but in a few days we might have our Internet issues sorted out. In the meantime this week we created some simple artwork using Photofunia. Happy unofficial start of summer!

Visit more artsy kitties at Athena's Caturday Art blog hop!

And now our weekly answers for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, hosted by 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs!

Mudpie's answers:

1. I would love to be a fly on the wall in the offices of our ISP this week. Whoa, Mommy went bonkers on them! I was proud of her but she kinda scared me too!

2. I am missing cuddling with Mommy and blankies. It's already getting too hot and I've stopped sleeping on Mommy's pillow too, which I just started doing a month ago and we both loved.

Mommy's answers:

3. I could use more serenity in my life.

4. I could do without so much stress. Couldn't we all?

Flashback Feline Friday: Tara the Exhibitionist

Since we were celebrating Tara's Gotcha Day on Wednesday I wanted to share one of my favorite flashbacks starring her once again as well, especially now that the summer heat is starting to settle in.

Tara had very thick fur and suffered terribly in the summer. I would brush enough fur out of her on a regular basis to make another cat but she would still lie around the house prostrate from the heat.

The following photos are a few of my favorites of Tara. I kept a small desk fan near her at all times, and one day I looked over to see her back legs straddling the fan, her little hips moving as it turned back and forth. How I wish I had recorded it because it was absolutely priceless!!!

My, what a little exhibitionist she was!

Feline Friday is simple to join. All you have to do is:

Post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (They may be silly or cute).

Happy 13th Gotcha Day, Angel Tara!

Meows from Mudpie!

I never knew her, but Mommy told me that today would have been Angel Tara's 13th Gotcha Day.

I'm the second kitty in Mommy's life since Tara ran off to the Bridge, and so much has happened in the 7 years since she's been gone that sometimes Mommy feels guilty because she's forgotten some of what made Tara unique. (She was the first tortie that lived in our house so that alone made her super special!) When someone lives in our hearts they're a part of us forever, and Mommy still remembers all of Tara's favorite things, but the little details tend to fall by the wayside. 

In honor of Tara's special day, here are some of our favorite photos of her...

May Retro Country Rewind #MewsicMovesMe

One year ago we premiered our mewsic feature "Retro Country Rewind," a look back at favorite songs that hit #1 during that month from 30, 35, 40 plus years ago. We have so much fun gathering the songs for it month and hope you enjoy our selections. Let's take a look at May for this freebie week in the Mewsic Moves Me blog hop...

This month instead of choosing one song for each year I had to choose 3 songs from 1985 because I love them all so much and just couldn't choose a favorite. That I said, I couldn't find a song I was crazy about from 1980 or 1975 so we still have 5 songs in our playlist...

35 Years Ago - 1985, There's No Way, Alabama

35 Years Ago - 1985, Radio Heart, Charly McClain

35 Years Ago - 1985, Somebody Should Leave, Reba

50 Years Ago - 1970, My Woman, My Woman, My Wife, Marty Robbins

55 Years Ago - 1965, Girl On the Billboard, Del Reeves
