The twins

This is Karl & Katie.  Next week The Shepherd is off to points south to pick up so friends for them.  Then on the second day of my 10 day staycation, he is going to wean the whole bunch.  How could I be so lucky??

The best Caturday present EVER

A friend gave me this mug as a gift this week.  She said she saw it on the internet and just had to buy it for me.  Yes, I'm somewhat of a Trekkie - We did have a cat named Neelix you know - but the early cast - done up as cats - Inspired...   Thank you Nina :-)

The Attack of the Zucchinis

 The Shepherd has chosen a new variety of zucchini to grow this year.

It sure started early.  There are three plants and they are covered in blossoms and little zucchinis!

They are a light skinned with dark stripes - sort of like a zebra...but green....

This fine fellow ended up in our dinner last night - a "scramble" - fried potatoes with onions, just a tiny bit of orange bell pepper, a couple of mushrooms, the zucchini, of course and eggs.  Sort of a potato frittata, I guess. 

I put cheese on my part - it was yummy.

Come Caturday morning

I'm goin' away with my friend

We'll Caturday-spend till the end of the day

Just I and my friend

 We'll travel for miles in our Caturday smiles

And then we'll move on

But we will remember long after Caturday's gone

Come Caturday morning,

Come Caturday mo - or - ning.....
