Remembering Conway #CaturdayArt

Meows from Mudpie!

Today is the 28th anniversary of Mommy's beloved Conway's death so we decided to get artsy with one of her favorite photos of us together from a couple years ago. She says she can't tell if I'm looking at him thinking, "What is the big deal about you, anyways?" or if maybe he's growing on me. (I'll never tell!)

PS - Mommy has a really nice post filled with lots of memories over on her Conway blog today, for anyone interested!

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

1. House centipedes creep(s) me out. I try to gently move most bugs outside where they belong, but those things instantly meet my shoe. 

2. I could use a refresher class in parallel parking. Unlike so many I never had any trouble with parallel parking when I was learning to drive but haven't done it since taking my driving test and don't know if I could do it after all this time.

3. Life would be much simpler if people were more like animals.

4. I would like to display more of my collectibles, but first I have to do quite a bit more decluttering.

How did we not know your human had a Conway blog, Mudpie? We are so NOT surprised! Of course she does!

Nice art, Mudpie and Melissa. Plus, I agree with all the fill-ins.

Mom said she doubts she could do parallel parking if her life depended on it. (sigh) poor Grandma she had a lot of nice collectibles that she wants to display but the house down here is much smaller and she doesn't have anywhere to put most of her stuff. She is very sad.

Fabulous artwork!

Mom can NOT parallel park. She had a hard enough time with her little two-seater and now feels like her 2 door Civic is HUGE!!!

Mudpie! Your art this week Rocks! We love it! And we gotta say your Mom's fill-ins (especially #1) resonate with our Mom.

Beautiful Conway art. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I don't like centipedes either-ick. My town's Main St. requires parallel parking. Have a nice weekend. XO

That artwork is wonderful and wistful, Mudpie. It's a lovely tribute to Conway.

And we are creeped out by house centipedes, too. Ewww!

What a beautiful piece of memorial art! And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! Parallel parking is something I've actually always been okay at and that I kind of enjoy doing. One thing I have not done since my driver's ed class, though, is drive on the interstate. Whenever I travel on the interstate, I'm usually with my family and my dad or my mom is driving. I just haven't been behind the wheel on the interstate since I was 15 years old, which is over half my life ago. I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that, but as a homebody who doesn't like traveling, I'm also okay with it. And you are so, so right about #3. Us humans could take some lessons from animals, that's for sure. Purrs!
