Here We Go Again from Bayou Quilts

 Cats are never bothered by what goes on in the world at large.  They find a spot in the sun, groom themselves, and sleep most of the time.  Edgrr and Stinker find their spots, and untroubled, go about their pleasure.  Many days, I envy them.

"Cats are connoisseurs of comfort."  --James Herriot

OMG!!! It's October Already?! from Ravelly1

 Hi everyone! I've been missing in action for some time now. Don't ask what I've been up to cause, really, I haven't been doing much of anything except avoiding TV as much as possible.  Of course Mr. Cowboy has suggested that I cook more lunch, dinner and snacks during the hay season. I assured him that I'm doing my best in that department....hehehehehehe

Eclectic Me is still around though. Here's my absolute favorite  police lip-sync video.  I'll tell you why I love it so after the video.


I hope you got some ...
