A & I Team W4 Blog--Things That Make Me Smile


Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Our Blog for this week on the team is about what makes me
emoticon !

emoticon, of course!

This is the most recent of Glen, Amber & myself.


This is Thumper, the newest addition to my little zoo. This is no bunny! He is huge! And he has a 'thing' for Zeus!

This is Zeus, my deaf & blind kitty. He's almost as big as Thumper emoticon! They go running through the house together. And, yes, Thumper has tried to 'get it on' with Zeus(Zeus is also a boy but 'fixed'.


And here is Oreo, the blind kitty my daughter & I found last December. He's doing well-he's gained 3 lbs and getting around the house very well. In addition to being totally blind now the poor guy also has arthritis & he's only 3 yrs old! Rough life out on the streets!


This is ButterScotch. She's 'the old lady'. She's 12 yrs old. Loves her kitty cup(bed). She spends a lot of time there, napping under the tv & the afternoon sun streams on her, to warm her bones!


This is Macaroni. She's 10 yrs old but she's getting ornery in her old age! emoticon. She has 2 different colored eyes-one green one blue but she's not deaf.


These are my 2 guinea pigs. The one in front in Trudy, the one in back is Max. I got them both from Amber's science teacher a few yrs ago. I had piggies when I was younger and LOVE them. Trudy is real friendly, Max not so much. I love the little screech they greet me with when I come near!


This is Roxie, my Red Slider Turtle. She's gotten SO big(I have since gotten her a bigger landing dock. She swims up when I come by, too



This is my Nook! I LOVE my Nook! I didn't think I would because I love books-I like turning the pages, the smell of a brand new book...But my Nook is WAY easier to tote around in my purse! I'm currently reading The Hit by David Baldacci, it JUST came out today! emoticon he's one of my FAVORITE authors. My Nook is just a Simple Touch-no glow light(I have a small clip on light that I use for reading in bed. No HD, no color. Just WiFi and reading. I got it for $39.00 at BooksAMillion online at that Black Friday sale last Thanksgiving. I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! I have a purple cover-my favorite color-and a lime green cover.


Here's a birds' nest that is being built right on the front porch, near the roof. I love watching them bring bits of wood & grass to build it with. It'll be pretty cool to see little baby birds poking their little heads out there!

I guess there's more that make me smile but that covers it pretty well!

Have a great day!

    I was very excited about this week's assigned blog, and I can't wait to read everyone's and write my own. Yours sure made me smile a lot! I hope that I will be on your team one of these months, so I can get to know you better! I loved seeing all the pics of your family - you sure do have quite the menagerie! Kudos to you for taking in the blind and deaf kitties! I smiled imagining Thumper running around the house with Zeus and trying to "get it on!" emoticon Your Oreo looks much like a cat named Scooter who I kept for my sister way back when I was in my twenties.

    I LOVE this blog! This ALL made me smile too. You have quite the little zoo. That is so precious that you are caring for blind and deaf cats. I don't understand how a cat could live out in the wild being blind and deaf, I guess the poor things wouldn't live very long.

    You really do have many things that make you smile. I loved all of the pictures of your pets and the descriptions of them. They put a smile on my face too. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon (not a guinea pig but as close to one as I could find on the emoticons). emoticon
