Fashion Friday with Duffy and the Unicorns.

" Hi ya! It's another Fashion Friday post on the jetty!  This week, I decided to shoot my post in the absence of Wilhelmina who tends to be a bit of a photo bomber. I brought the Unicorns with me instead. We like to call Avalon and her BFF Nymeria, the Unicorns. I hope they behave!"

Duffy, " Today I am wearing my red, velvet, Christmas bandana that has an attached bell on the tip. I'm also wearing my favourite, grey, winter jacket that has toggle buttons on the back."

Avalon, " Hi ya everyone! My name is Avalon the unicorn!"
Duffy, " Uh oh! The ambush is already beginning . . . and you are NOT a unicorn!"

Avalon, " Hmmm. My feelings are hurt.I thought I was being quite helpful but clearly I am not needed here!"

 Duffy, " O. k.  Now they are both behind me, correct? Is this your idea of being helpful Avalon? Hooking in the other troublemaker?!!"
 Complete silence as Avalon and Nymeria continue to look out to the wild beyond while altogether ignoring Duffy.

Duffy, " I've changed locations! This is so much better!"

Duffy, "Ugh. WAS so much better! Can you spot the tip of Avalon's tail? They both somehow managed to squeeze into the frame and ruin my best pose!"

Duffy, " I'm back on the upper part of the jetty again."

Duffy, " I am walking away. Some times, it is better to walk away!!"

Duffy, " Here is my best pose."

Have a Fabulous Friday!
See you soon.

Six cute pics of Malou and her narrative.

 Malou, " I know! I haven't been on the blog with my own post for one hundred and seventy-five thousand million years! I hope you haven't forgotten me! In case you have forgotten how I look, I thought I would remind you photographically. LP claims it is difficult to get a good photograph of a black cat and she also claims I suck at letting her take photographs of me. Her words, I kid you not! Blah, blah, blah is what I say! How about making an effort once in a while Lame Dame?!"

 Malou, " I think I look nice in this photograph on account there is a dreamy quality to my gaze. I was most likely thinking of birds. I like to imagine hunting them, slaying them and cooking them up in a large pot to make a lovely bird stew."

 Malou, " Here is another dreamy pose but I believe I was thinking about mice here. I have never actually seen a real, live mouse before. They seem fascinating and lead me to pondering how I would greet them were I ever to come across one."

Malou, " In this photo, I am attempting to emulate the owl figurine directly behind me. I think I pass as a good likeness!"

Malou, " This is me in a box. I am a cat who loves a good box! Well, that's all I have for you today, but I plan to find more photographs to share with you in the near future. Some times a cool cat has to call a mutiny! Especially when she has been repeatedly and rudely overlooked!!"

MALOU being overlooked!


Have a Thrilling Thursday.
See you soon.

Monday Musings with Levon.

 Levon, " I agree. It's been about a catzillion years since I've been on the blog. Dogs. Sigh. They sure can take up space and time! So, you've probably been wondering what I have been up to lately . . ."

Levon, " You can't see what I see but do let me tell you . . . there are plenty of sparkling , shimmering trinkets as well as  feathery or luminous baubles in my world these days. They are, each and every one of them, absolutely, fabulously, enticing and mesmerizing!"

Levon, "I wish we could visit longer but would you excuse me while a take a nap? I must recharge my batteries in order  for me to have enough energy to play with all my new toys! Whispers . . . and if I happen to break a bauble or two, I can always blame it on the dogs!!"

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.
