National Rubber Ducky Day - Jan 13

Tabitha here.  Mom is trying to do "Stuff on My Cat" again! 

Today is National Rubber Ducky Day! (It is also Friday the 13th but we prefer to celebrate something more fun instead!)

Sweetpea is pretending nothing is there - maybe they will go away!

It all began in 1970 when Jim Henson performed the song “Rubber Duckie” as Ernie on Sesame Street. The rubber duck bath toy has been an iconic American symbol ever since. Rubber ducks have been around since the rise of the rubber industry in the late 1800s, but no one knows their exact origin.

Two Spot thought he could nest with the duckies!

Snowball backed up to keep his distance!

Did you know that in January of 1992, a shipment of 29,000 rubber duckies fell off a cargo ship in the Pacific Ocean? By 2007, the “Friendly Floatees” had traveled 17,000 miles around the world on the ocean currents. Some are still afloat today! Over the years, people reported sightings in Indonesia, Australia, South America, the Bering Straight, the Arctic, and (eventually) the Atlantic Ocean. (Info from

Do you or your beans  have any rubber duckies?  Enjoy Ernie of Sesame Street singing "Rubber Ducky" in the clip below.  Happy Rubber Ducky Day!

Goodbye Daphne

Sometimes our pets are only with us for a very short amount of time but in that time they will become our heart.  

Daphne was a cat like that for our animal rescue friend Chrystal.  Daphne lived a short life but did indeed know the love of Chrystal and her family.  She blossomed from a scrawny cat with many health issues into a beauty.  Unfortunately her health issues were serious and she was debilitated from a tumor in her ear. Daphne was released from her suffering while cradled with love in her mom's arms.  Please do go by to offer your condolences to Chrystal at Daily Dose of Dogs.

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

Monday Mnews

Me Rosa and my catmom Mamcita

 Rosa here today.  Mom needed a break so we had to take the week off with her - no one here has figured out how to use the computer ourselves...yet! 

The holiday rush and extra work hours finally got to Mom and then we got a COLD spell and our well house pump froze  this past week leaving us with no water for a couple of days!  Not much fun feeding us on paper plates!

So today is just an assortment of news and pics of us to keep you up to date.

Joey snoopervises the road crew activity on the street.  Lots of noise and trucks going by adding an edge to the road to fill in the places where the pavement broke off.

Chica is still going strong and been busy keeping Mom on her toes!  She likes to help with the 'puter, either on her lap or on the desk.

Two Spot and his white brothers are enjoying their new scratcher/perch.  The weather has been very mild so far with temps in the 50s and 60s!  No snow even!

Our neighbor Jack has been by often to check out the voles under the bird feeder.  So far he has not caught anything but it is not from lack of trying!

Everyone else is doing fine.  Mom has lots of home and yard projects lined up for Pop this month like adding more insulation over our cat house and getting the raised garden beds set up for spring.  That's seems to be all the mnews from us.  What is new with you?
