indoors and outdoors
Arrival Story: I had been picked up as a stray & was in the shelter for six weeks. Meanwhile, at the other end of town my future family was finally ready to welcome another cat into their lives after Angel Smokey. They went to the shelter thinking "anything but a gray one, because there will never be another Smokey!" Well, even though I'm gray, I kept following them with my big eyes, meowing "pick me, pick me", and they kept coming back to me. When the shelter lady said "would you like to hold her?" I held my breath. When Big Bro Joe declared “This cat has personality!” I knew for sure I had found my forever home!
They loved me, appreciated all of my quirks and when after 7 happy active years with them I got a tumor that quickly took my strength away, they had my back. They took loving care of me and I was being held in Mom's arms when I crossed the Rainbow Bridge in my own time and on my own terms like the independent girl I have always been. That's what a forever home is about, and I chose mine well!

Since the full moon is tonight, what better place to have Angel Gracie’s Full Moon Pawty this month than Mallows Bay, with Lily & Jakar (two black cats) hosting and a theme of “Lucky”? But I’m not just bein’ egotistical this time. See, I’ve discovered “The Ghost Fleet of Mallows Bay.” Check it out:
During World War 1 the US Government announced plans to build 1,000 supply ships for the war effort. Boatyards across the country started churning out wooden steamships. But there was a problem: The ships were put together so fast that they were kinda barely seaworthy. And then just as the first hulls were hitting the water, the war ended. The government was left with over 200 obsolete, leaky boats. Long (long, LONG) story short, they ended up in Mallows Bay on the Potomac where they sit today, the largest shipwreck fleet in the Western Hemisphere. And possibly even the world (Yay, we’re #1).
Because they’re made of wood, after almost 100 years each vessel has become a mini-ecosystem with trees up to 40 feet high and all kinds of vegetation growing out of ‘em. The wrecks are now home to Osprey, water fowl, and other wildlife. Bald Eagles nest in the nearby trees along the shore. There’s a park there now, with boat ramps and everything. After the entertainment and the great food, O.J. & I are gonna kayak through the wrecks in the moonlight. Then we might or might not have a romantic hideaway ready on one of the ghostie ships. We ain’t tellin’. See you there!
It's my birthday and my adoptiversary! AND DDP!! And even though I wasn’t plannin’ on bein’ at the Bridge for this birthday, it got off to a pretty great start. Why you will never guess what was in our driveway this morning. A real honest to goodness Harley. NICE one, too! No, the guy wasn't lost, mol. He's a friend of the pawrents'. I tell ya, the pawrents have just risen on the cool meter in THIS kitty's estimation. I will never wash the driveway again. (Not like I ever DID wash the driveway).
Glad you could make it, there is celebratin’ to do! I have a rockin’ Harley birthday cake, and we have an Extreme Monster Golf Cart Demolition Derby goin’ on.
And since it’s spring, I brought out the pawty food stand. There’s deep fried butter, chocolate covered corn dogs, the whole works. Let’s get this pawty rollin’!
My hubby O.J. & my pals the biker chicks & I just got back from Fruita, Colorado. What's in Fruita, Colorado, you ask? Why, The “Mike the Headless Chicken Festival”! This is absolutely for real! The story starts on September 10, 1945 when Fruita, Colorado, farmer Lloyd Olsen chose a chicken for his evening meal. Mr. Olsen cut off the bird’s head, but Mike just shook it off and continued trying to peck for food. He lived for 18 months being fed with an eye dropper and went on a national tour as “The Headless Wonder Chicken”. I know we can all relate to Mike’s example that you can live a normal life, even after you have lost your mind.
My Biker Peeps went in the Bike Poker Ride and I entered the Disc Golf Tournament. O.J. went in the wing eatin' contest (Shhh! Don’t tell the girls!) and got a massive bellyache, my biker Peeps had a ball chicken dancin' and I won some cool stuff at chicken bingo.
I brought everyone back a Mike T-shirt. Well, under the circumstances a hat would be a dumb souvenir, wouldn't it?
