Pussycats & Postcards

Who controls the remote in your household ????

I have received another couple of postcrds, which I would like to share with you.

The first one is from Loni, from Michigan ... which seems to be a really amazing place, judging by the wonderful people I have met in Blogland who live there ... and it shows pictures of an Elk, a Whitetail and a Blackbear. Personally, I think I would be really scared living in an area where the Bears run around free. I guess, though, that they are only in really wild foresty areas, away from people, not in surburbia !! They are probably (hopefully) just as scared of humans, as we are of them.

The second one is from Nerdine, from Oslo, Norway, and shows a part of The Oseberg Ship, which is located in the Viking Ships Museum. It must be a really fascinating place. The Vikings have always been of great interest to me, so she picked the perfect card.

Thank you ladies, for your wonderful cards ... they are just gorgeous. I am still enjoying the Postcard Exchange, and the cards that keep arriving. It is lots of fun. I still need to get back onto posting all these amazing cards onto a special blog, just for the postcards. I have started it, but then got sidetracked !!!

I found this gorgeous photo ... I just had to share it !!

It is Wednesday midday-ish in my world, and I am about to head over to a friend's for a visit, before picking up Chicky from school. This friend of mine, I'll call her "J" (you know who you are !!), has been a great friend, for around 13 years. She is married to a work-mate of my husbands, and we just clicked when we first met. She is an amazing woman. She is the mother of 3, one 10 (or is it 11, sorry "J") year old boy, and 2 almost 8 year old girls. The girls were born very premature, and both have quite significant disabilities. But "J" lets nothing faze here, she is the most organised, caring, loving woman I have ever met. She is on numerous committees, is always volunteering her time to help others, and is always there for anyone. I think you are a star, "J' ... just wanted to tell you that. Everyone loves her, and she deserves nothing but the best. There should be more people like her in this world. We love ya, "J".

I had better get going now. I hope everyone has a wonderful week.

Take care,

Connie and Rob said...

Love your kitty pictures.

Your friend sounds like a very lovely person. Hope you have a wonderful afternoon together.

Take care,


Like your postcard of Michigan.
In my household my grandson has control of the remote and the TV.
That cat seems to be bored looking out of the window.

Meow said...

Bossy Britches ... thank you. See, what did I say about all the wonderful people from Michigan ... you're one of them !!
With me living in the future, I should know what you are going to do today, shouldn't I !?!?!

Greeneyes ... hey, right back at ya !! Glad you're back, my friend.

Megz Mum ... thanks, we had a wonderful time catching up.

Connie ... thanks, it was great seeing her, as with her busy schedule, and my various running arounds, it is often quite difficult to co-ordinate our schedules to catch up !!

Fridays Child ... thanks. My husband likes to think he has control of the remote ... but I only let him think that ... really, it's mine !!!

Take care, friends. Have a great day .... Meow

Granny said...

Love the cats.

I'm grandma one more time. This makes ten.

Posts on granny.

Meow said...

Granny ... thank you, and congratulations. I'll be over soon !!
Take care, Meow

Michelle said...

Your friend sounds amazing, you're right, there needs to be more in this world just like her :o)

Alice said...

Adore the one with the cat and the remote. My cats will stand on the remote (I believe deliberately) sometimes to change the channel.

The bear and deer postcard is great, as is the one with the bit of boat.

Reminds me of the Narnia story, the Dawn Treador. I may have spelt the title wrong but it's my favourite Narnia tale.

Maybe they'll do a remake of that one next. :-)

By the way, in answer to your question, love mail is great, but you can't make fun of it. I;m grateful for all the nice comments I get, but nasty comments make good Blog fodder and I'm greedy - I want both.

And I got some! Yay!

Thanks for the love mail though. Hope you and my other Blogging friends kee; it coming.


Meow said...

Michelle ... Thank you , she's a wonderful person.

Alice ... isn't it funny the things cat do, that really do seem deliberate !! I believe that cats hate it when we read newspapers, instead of patting them, so climb onto the paper just so we cannot see it ! I don't know about hate mail ... I prefer the love mail !!!

Take care, Meow

Nicole said...

I thought I'd sneak in some daytime television today, you know, a little bit of Oprah lol but my cat Floyd decided to sit on me.. facing me.. nose to nose for about one whole Oprah show lol... and did I pet him? Oh yes I did lol

LoraLoo said...

I also get a kick out of you being in the future. :) I already know it's going to be a good day by your post yesterday. LOL!

Hope you are having a fantastic day!

dragonflyfilly said...

OH MY GAWD....i just love the photo of the kitty hanging out of the window...can i copy it?

momyblogR said...

Lovin' the cards.....Mine is IN THE MAIL!

I think all the cats should control the remote. Hm, I guess I better get a cat then, lol!

Tab said...

I love cats :0)
You are so great to put so many warm and thoughtful posts in your blog...the postcards are cool too!
Thanks for sharing ~

Meow said...

Nicole ... cats can be very distracting, but oh-so-cuddly. I love when they sit nose to nose ... too cute, little smoochers.

Loraloo ... Thursday morning is looking ok so far ... hey, maybe I can become a fortune teller ... I know what today is like, you are still in yesterday !!

Dragonflyfilly ... it's really cute, of course you can copy it.
There are heaps more in, which is where I found these two.

Momyblogr ... I agree, cats would pick the cutest programs ... all about birds, mice, and stuff like that !!

Tab ... thank you. I like to be a warm and fluffy person, I like to make people smile. That's me !!

Have a wonderful day, everyone. I predict it will be warm and sunny, with just a hint of cloud ...
Take care, Meow

Hey Meow

You do get some great postcards and thanks so much for the one that you sent me. Yours should be winging it's way across whatever sea it is today :).

Have a great Thursday although it's probably Friday for you by now.
