Fiona Forever ~ Taking Some Purrsonal Time ~ Guest Selfies Are Taking Ovfur Today

We are all tired out...well, we always love to take long naps, but its really the petcretary who is kind of tired out...from her work, all the goings on in our den the past week or so, and then all the sadness here in the Land of Blogging...aka Blogville.
She says she feels burned out. We know she used the oven a lot today, but we do not think she means that kind of burning.

Petcretary spent a lot of hours making some mementos for Easy, Treasure and Sammy. (You can see them in this blog posting - just click on this sentence to see them.) That is one reason she didn't have time to help us with selfies, and she wanted to have a Christmas theme starting, but the weather has been dark and somber a lot of late, and when the sun did show up she was running errands or at her work...MOL!  So no good new December pictures. She says she doesn't even know if she will get any cards made, she may have to resort to those 'premade' ones, OMC!! Maybe she might get some ecards ready, she is not sure...
Anypaws we are going to show you some other selfies, made on her trip to see our Auntie and Great Auntie a while back.
Its always good to have stand ins, for times such as these...thanks for understanding.

So there are our kitties, Oh, MY!! There used to be a kitty across the street but he went to live with relatives of those neighbors,  out in the country, so that he could roam and be safer from cars, etc.

Precious Angel Fiona

We are joined up with The Cat On My Head. Would you pawlease visit there and leave some comforting purrs, POTP, and maybe some licks and wags if you are woofies. Dear Fiona has become an Angel. Joining the others that went there this week, too. What sadness in Bloggville indeed.

We asked petcretary to help us make a memento for her, too.

Easy Forever ~ Treasure Forever ~ And Come Fly With Us, Sammy

Yesterday we heard the sad news that dear Easy had to go to doggy heaven,  Easy was loved and well known in our blogging circles, though we have to admit, we did not know him that well ourselves...mores the pity. We know he will be greatly missed and grieved by all who knew and loved him. Rest well, Easy and then be a strong healthy Angel.

We also heard that another furry loved one had to go to the RB, too.
Treasure from Mickey's Musings made his journey after a very long loved life, which nevfurtheless was still too short.
Today we are taking another kitty to visit us in our city of Battle Creek, Michigan, USA.
He is in a traveling balloon, so how appawpurriate it that!We are the home of the annual International Balloon Festival and Field of Flight. So we will take Sammy there to show him some of what goes on there.
Don't you just love this quaint little sign? MOL!
In  a nutshell, this is the banner to promote this fun event.

There are always lots of people there and at the right time of day...and weather permitting, lots of hot air balloons.
This is 'Ally Cat'!

It came and landed close to where we were sitting to watch.
Battle Creek is not only known for Kellogg's, but also for Post...and this is Sugar Bear!
When the sun goes down the balloons are lit up, that is quite the spectacle!
Of course there is also a 'midway' complete with lots of rides. They are lit up at night.
Daytime view...
And the Thunderbirds come there too. They are not called Thunderbirds for nothing...bring your earmuffs or plugs...This one was on display and you could see it up close.Our pawppy is checking it out, in the white shirt.

Look at all the places this airplane has been, Sammy! Wow!
Here they are all lined up, taking a rest.
Looky here! These look like Smoke and Joe, MOL!!
There were even flying motorbikes, OMC!
And giant sized beverages for the thirsty crowds...
Some of those Thunderbirds in performance.
Wouldn't you love to fly in one of them?
There they go!
Then at dusk the sky is not done yet with flighty these fireworks! Wowee! Boomers all the way!

After all that noise and excitement, come and relax in our garden for a while...
We have heard today, after we started this posting that Sammy decided to fly away to the heavenly realm of angels earlier today. How sad and lonely his peeps will be, we send them and also Easy and Treasure's peeps, lots of hugs and comforting purrs...and some good MJF licks and soft woofs.

Fly well, all you new beautiful angels, we are here upon the earth sending purrs to all who are now so sad...
