Oh HECK no, PawPaw! Mom is not
going to keep phoning and bugging Extra Foods and Timmy's! She doesn't even really want a job that badly, know what I mean?

Niece Paver was here and she gave Mom a lot to think about, she thinks that the house would probably sell for more than Mom expected, and that's without any fixing or painting at all. Mom is sure happy to know that, it gives her a whole lot more choices about what she can do. It could also give her some paint & spackle downstairs that won't get used, mol, but that's the least of it right now. Mom has to get online & start doing some homework about what's out there. And niece paver was going to send her some listings through e-mail, too.

I think you are right, I think those white flowers ARE Snowdrops! I had Mom Google the Woodland tulip fest, I see all kinds of Dutch names in the article, just like the part of Abbotsford where the Bradner flower show and all the tulip farms are. There are a whole lot of Dutch & German Mennonite people up here. That is very cool that they saved the Huldah Klager house and gardens as a historic site and that they still have the festival. She sounds like quite a lady! So THAT'S where all those lilacs up here at the Bridge come from!

I definitely say we take in both flower festivals! Nothing says "spring" like flowers!

Oh it has felt SO much like spring today! Mom has had her bedroom window open all day ... might be about time to close it now, mol. -- your Smokey

Well of course YOU are mushing ME
in the grocery cart! Would I make a lady do all the work? I think not!

Yep, little purple crocuses are what Mom saw on her paper route. And some other little white flowers that grow in bunches too. Here, I slipped out and picked you a bunch! They go so well with your fur.

Mom saw bunches of daffodils for sale at the veggie store the other day too. They grow them just up the road, why they have whole FARMS full of daffodils and tulips just a few miles away! It won't be long before the Bradner Flower Festival, we'll have to be sure and go.

Nope, Mom never heard from Extra foods or from Tim Hortons either. She's not really trying very hard, though. Not yet. In fact she was on the phone today with Mr. Paver, and he's going to send his niece around. She's a realtor & she'll do one of those no-obligation evaluations. Plus she'll pick up her file folder, Dad did her taxes a few years ago too.

Your Peeps will be coming soon, don't worry! Big Bro Will was at the store the other day and he said he saw Easter stuff already. Before Valentine's Day even! Those humans really do like to rush things, don't they? -- your Smokey

Hi my sweet PawPaw
I think it must be safe to put the spring picture up, today when Mom took her papers for a walk she saw some crocuses daring to stick their heads up out of the ground in a couple of yards. Crocuses are pretty smart, at LEAST as smart as groundhogs anyway. So if they say it's safe, I say it's safe too!

Oh boy, springtime yellow Peep moonpies! Before we know it, it will be time for Peeps so we'd better get in practice for those yummy little cute guys.

A lady came for her big file folder today, yay! And Mom called another guy who has a great big folder with receipts & stuff in it. He says maybe this weekend, that would be nice!

Yep, the Mom is doing good. All that's really missing now is to either get a job so there's money coming in, or to sell the house and move someplace where she can say bye-bye mortgage. Nothing is anywhere near even thinking about being desperate, but you know Mom, she likes to plan ahead. Way, WAY ahead! Big Bro Will helps, and he's at work so much of the time that they don't drive each other nuts but he IS planning to move out ... one of these decades, mol.

Okay, it's getting close to time that the Moj has to go for her shots. Mom thinks she is playing it cool, she put the carrier in the spare room a few hours ago, on its end with the door still off but in arms reach. The Moj is napping on Mom's bed with Mikey, so Mom is hoping she can just scoop the little Moj up & pop her into the carrier butt first before she even knows what's happening. Let's get ready to help run interference if they need us! What a team! -- your guy Smokey

My dear sweet PawPaw,
those can be whatever you want them to be flying around us. Though I kind of think they're probably more hearts. Don't we look cozy up there?

Nope, I don't think Mom will get into that bad place again. That was a few years ago and a lot of the ... um ... frustrations aren't an issue anymore. Dad was a good guy & all, but there were times when he just seemed to bring a great big dark cloud over everything. We're just glad she didn't toss or destroy the nice positive books that she used to love. Instead she just stuffed them way away in a dark corner from which they are being taken out now and put front & center where they belong. And read, that's even more important, they're being read again.

She's eating her own kind of food again and she's putting her own kind of thoughts in her head again. The other Angels & I take her some Angel dust every now & then and the Earthlings give her some very pretty purrs and she's going to be fine.

Well I hear that the groundhog didn't see his shadow so I guess A. Mallow's Groundhog Day pawty was a success. Of course, we may be whining about that if we find ourselves back in the roasting pan come July. Perish the thought! -- your Valentine, Smokey

Well, do you really think I would NOT stop
by your page, no matter how busy a day it was? And we sure did have a great time! And we are going to have an even better time ALL next month, when Angel Mallow brings her special brand of craziness to ALL of CC and no one will even notice what WE are up to, mol.

Yep, that saying about beginnings goes WAY past "Closing Time", Mom has it written down in her little book of quotes this way:

"New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings" ~ Lao Tzu

Would you believe she has a fancy notebook where she collects these things? Actually, she's on her second one. She didn't fill the first one, she got into a bad place a few years ago and ripped it up.

BUT, she has another fancy notebook sitting around the house that she's never quite figured out what she wants use it for and I think it's one of those signs from the Universe kind of things, she's starting to collect the sayings into that notebook, all gathered in one place again. She has a head start, some of the sayings she also wrote between the chapters of some really good books years ago, which thankfully for her she did NOT rip up or toss out. She just stuffed the books away and now she's finding all of it again. Guess it's just time for all of those good and wise things to come back into her life, right?

So have you got your coronation finery ready? Shall I wear my Steve Douglas/Mr. Rogers sweater? You could go the American Bandstand backwards sweater and pearls route. Or since it's going to be Valentine's month we could deck ourselves out in red. So many decisions! -- your Smokey

Hi Love-bug Angel PawPaw ~
I'm leaving you my c/p thank-you down below. I know we are preaching to the choir at YOUR house on that particular quote but it's a good one. That guy "Unknown" sure says a lot of wise things!

Yep, those green mini-blinds in my profile picture are the ones that are STILL up, would you believe? They might have faded a bit from the sun, but they're still in pretty good shape. The kitties here don't abuse them like yours do!

Oh gee, a forest green cardigan for me! Do I get to smoke a pipe like Steve Douglas and sing like Mr. Rogers? And an 8888 layer green mint chip moonpie cake? I'm glad we're up here on our clouds or my Mom would seriously try to get this mint chocolate goodness away from me! She'd make some excuse about wanting to keep me healthy or something. Somehow I think eating too much cake isn't going to hurt me anymore, know what I mean?

Yes, we are all about celebrating our lives here, and we really do believe that "every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end". Not like we want those ends to come any sooner than they have to, but
mostly we just want to appreciate the big long middle part.

I LOVE that Angels Elmie & Pouncer have made us a special candlelight dinner! A toast to you, and me, and our long lives and an eternity of afterlife to enjoy! -- kisses, your guy Smokey

Crossing Day thank you from Angel Smokey ♥
Thank you for coming to honour my crossing day, I had one of the greatest lives a kitty could ever have and on this special day I’d like to leave you with a thought that I once drew Mom’s attention to:

“Before humans die, they write their Last Will and Testament, giving their home & all they have to those they leave behind. If, with my paws I could do the same, this is what I’d ask:

“To a poor & lonely stray I’d give:

“My happy home
My bowl & cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys
The lap which I loved so much
The loving hand which stroked my fur and the voice which spoke my name

“I’d will to the scared shelter kitty the place I had in my human’s loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.

“So when I die, please do not say “I will never have a pet again, for the loss & pain is more than I can stand”

“Instead, go find an unloved one whose life has held no joy or hope and give my place to HIM

“This is the only thing I can give, the love I leave behind.” ~~ Unknown

Thanks again for coming to help celebrate my life. – Angel Smokey

Good Eeee-vening ....
MOL, last Alfred Hitchcock Mom watched, in the blurb before the actual episode he was tattooing a slab of beef. And he was talking about how he was going to revolutionize the cosmetics industry, if your lips aren't red enough, he'll fix that.

And now, 55 years later, people DO exactly that! Hitchcock wasn't just the Master of Suspense, he was a visionary! These episodes are on KVOS "Me TV" out of Seattle, at 3 a.m. (that's why Mom tapes them). You MUST get them down where you are!

Oh, SUPER practice for Mardi Gras with the blackened catfish and crawdaddies. Even if right about now you DO have to go ice fishing to get them. I hear that O.J. is going to cook up some good stuff for Mardi Gras and there will be masks and beads and those little King cake babies that creep Steve out, it's going to be fun! -- kisses from Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Funny you should mention Alfred Hitchcock, that Boris Karloff show Mom has been taping just got around to the point where it's showing all the episodes she's already seen, so she stopped taping it & started taping the Alfred Hitchcock Hour, which comes on right before Karloff. She didn't want to tape both at once because that just gets so much TV backed up that it starts to feel like a chore keeping up with it. Especially when she's doing so much with A. Mallow's campaign.

No, The Swarm isn't about wasps, it's about those African Killer Bees. But we don't have any of those around here for the Moj to play patty-cake through the window with, thank goodness. Wasps are enough, thank you very much. And of course she has her little pals the ladybugs too, them we like just fine but the wasps not so much.

Oh cool, a Hitchcock marathon AND a Hitchcock picnic. How fun. Hold me tight now, I'll get scared for sure! -- Smokey

Hi Precious PawPaw
Your fluffy boy is just fine! And looking very much forward to Valentine's Day. I would definitely be honoured to be your Valentine, too.

Mom and Mikey & Moji Blackbear are watching a cheesy old '70's horror movie called "The Swarm", Mom got it from the library. I don't think it's going to keep Moji Blackbear from trying to play with wasps, mol.

Yep, blind people skiing, isn't that cool? Or crazy, or something! It's a team sport in the Paralympics, the blind skiier skis behind a sighted skiier who calls out changes of direction over a headset. Want to blindfold one another and try it out? We have wings, after all.

When they're done with the movie I'll sneak it down there and we can bundle up with some more of that yellow fried chicken from our rainy day picnic! -- kisses, Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Well, it must have been you who got the 4700 because not too many other kitties find their way here, especially during The Mallow Show, mol. Mom might have pushed it, she usually doesn't if she sees any of us are close to a big vote but she hasn't been watching the numbers very carefully lately.

Oh, before I forget, while she was working on pictures for A. Mallow in case she needs some (and a cool Royal Kitchen Manager picture for Evie), she made a Valentine's picture of us, too. It will go up on my page the first of February, which is NOT long at all!

Um ... maybe I should formally ask if you will be my Valentine, before I go assuming things.

Naw, Will didn't get flashbacks when he saw his wipe-out spot on TV. It's not like he didn't see it in person every day for the next few days after. This was after the regular Olympics were over and the Paralympics were on. Will had been watching blind people skiing down that hill and figured he just HAD to try out that plastic sign as a sled after hours.

Oh, a Winter Wonderland picnic grabs me just fine! Mmm .. snow crab, snow lobster, lutkefisk ..... and ice wine, of course.

Yep, I'm enjoying our privacy over here on my page these days. -- kisses, Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Well it looks like you DID give me vote #4700! And the goofy blogger never even noticed, shame on her. It's The Mallow Show around here lately, you know how that goes, mol.

Angel Mallow has the nerve to say "it's about high time!", yeesh, the ego on that girl!

Oh yes, we sure do remember those stamped numbers on the end of cans at the grocery store! And the conveyor belts too, Mom used to think it would be fun to sit in a box and ride along one of those, and your Mom actually GOT to?? Awesome! Then after they quit stamping right on the cans, they had those gun thingies where they would stamp the prices onto a sticker and stick the sticker on at the same time. Mom & Dad once had a part-time job repairing those guns. The grocery stores would give the busted ones back to the marking company rep when he came around, the rep would then bring all of them to our house and Mom & Dad would clean them up, fix the busted parts and then they would collect spare parts and assemble new guns when they had enough to build one. That really helped with the extra money back in the early 80's. Before my time, that was between Angel Jezebel & me.

When Big Bro Will worked at the 2010 Olympics in Whistler, they had to bank up some of the snow with hay bales AND bring out the snow machine. It was one of Whistler's crappiest snow years, mol. One time when things were slow, Will & one of the other guys took a big plastic sign about halfway up one of the ski hills and Will slid down. He lost control and wiped out into the hay bales. He was one pretty hurtin' guy the next day, mol. A couple of weeks ago he was watching a documentary on Whistler and he suddenly said to Mom "Hey! That's the hill I wiped out on!"

Yep, I was watching over him on that one, it could have been really bad!

Mol, I think we'll save the Olympic cuddling events till after the day's action.

Oh gee! I think I've got a bite! We'll be having some cold water cod tonight! -- your Smokey

Brrr! It's snuggling weather again today!
It went up to the 40's yesterday but it's back down today.

Oh wow, those Coca-Cola disks sound like they made really cool snow saucers! I'll bet your Angel Granddad got all kinds of cool stuff from the grocery store. Stuff they were just going to toss anyway, why not? When our Angel Granddad used to work at Corby's distillery, he would sometimes get these cool blue velvet bags from some special edition booze or another, and Mom used to keep her marbles in them. Psst ... thought she LOST her marbles, didn't you? Nope, they were in the blue velvet booze bag, nice and safe.

Oh gee, China for the next winter Olympics! Not a place you think of as being all about the winter sports, is it? But oh yeah, Chinese food like crazy! Maybe Mikey & A. Mallow will get up their curling teams again, they had a ball with that a couple of years ago. And I'm sure Sebs & Timothy will have their bobsleigh teams. Isn't it cool that we have all these CC traditions? And even if (Management forbid) we lose our CC, our traditions will live on wherever we end up.

Okay, grab the rods & reels, how about we go up to where Dad used to live in Goose Bay Labrador, take the biffy paper box and set it up as an ice fishing shack? We'll need LOTS of hot chocolate for that trip! -- kisses, Smokey

Are we going to be ready for the next Olympics or what?! Then when we're done lugeing, we can tip the box over on its side and cuddle up in the blanket for our Smokey & PawPaw Picnic! I see you even brought some Teddy Grahams!

Hi my sweet PawPaw
No, Angel Wolfie didn't suffer a long time and neither did Angel PD Budd, and that's a blessing. Neither did I, really. My body just slowed down like a tired clock & I was really only in distress the afternoon of the last day, because I was stubborn & hung on too long. But my very favourite person Big Bro Joe came home and he took care of me.

Okay, that's enough of the sad stuff. You have packed a really great picnic today! Crab legs, crab salad, shrimp cocktail, why you'd think it was summer! Angel Sandy & her sibs were telling A. Mallow today that it's only 9 more weeks till spring. Makes it sound really close when you say it that way, mol.

It's pouring rain at my place today, how about we put on some wing wax and go rainbow sliding? They should be nice & slippery! We can put up our umbrellas and go sailing like Mary Poppins, mol. Let's see what the humans make of THAT! -- your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw petal
Awww, can you believe that Wolfie has joined us up here? And so fast, he wasn't sick for very long and then just boom! I am really thankful that he didn't let his Mom have to make that "decision" for him, going out on his own timetable was a really merciful thing for him to do because she would have been second-guessing herself forever, whatever she ended up doing. You & Angel Mallow did that for your Moms too. Stubborn old me hung on too long, but Big Bro Joe did right by me since Mom was at the hospital with Dad a lot of the time when I was sick.

Oh, fantastic picnic, ham & cheese sammies! Maple bacon cocoa, huh? Pretty good actually! Yes, it's cold where we are and the fog is starting to roll back in. Sounds like the roads are getting frosty again, we're hearing some sliding tires. Let's take our double snuggies and find a nice cuddly spot to picnic and keep an eye on some of those drivers too. -- big cuddly purrs, Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Oooh! Mistletoe! No fair walking around with it strung between your ears, mol. But fun!

Will has the holiday food shows taped and we're watching them today! Mom mulled some wine and made a turkey pannini and some Stove Top stuffing too. Not IN the sandwich, that's just eww! Tonight she's going to tuck herself in early with the kitties, some goodies and mulled wine and watch her movie that was under the tree. It's been a GOOD day! How do we know? There's a huge mess under the tree. Last year she left the paper on the floor till New Years Day, just cleaning up the little shredded pieces but leaving the big ones till the kitties demolished them. She's doing that again this year.

Now where IS that Mistletoe? Oh yeah, not far away at all! -- kisses, Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw petal
We sure can't see the almost-full moon from here tonight, too many clouds! That snow that was forecast for tomorrow isn't going to happen now, but for the next couple of weeks we're going to go down around freezing & there might be some snow involved.

No, Mom didn't get a big brick of Mozzarella, she didn't think about freezing it when she bought it, but if freezing part of this smaller brick works then she's going to get one of the big ones that go on sale pretty cheap, cut it into smaller pieces & freeze it so she can use it anytime. They say the worst that can happen is that it will thaw out crumbly, but if it's for pizza anyway, who cares?

A wheel of cheese hollowed out with pasta inside? Um .. no thanks, mol. I guess that means I'm not preggers, good to know.

Okay, I am IN the spirit! Guess that's because I AM a spirit. Pass the fruitcake and bring on those holiday food shows! -- your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
That link you gave me was the CC login page, mol. But no worries, Mom Googled "Jimmy Fallon 12 Days of Christmas sweaters", then hit "images" and there she was. Some cool pictures! Did you see the cute gray kitty one with pom poms on it? I would not call that "ugly". But it was sure fun.

Let's pick out our favourite two to wear while we watch the Great Christmas Light Fight. Mom & Big Bro Will probably won't see it till tomorrow or Wednesday because it's on tape, so we'll be one up on them!

Boy, there are a lot of countries out there who have potato pancakes! The Irish have them, no surprise there mol. I like the German way with the sour cream on them. Don't know about the apple sauce, never tried that. Mom is still trying to get the balance right, soft on the inside but nicely browned on the outside. She hasn't tried in a couple of weeks though, right now she's got a batch of scalloped 'taters and she got some pizza fixin's too. She got a brick of mozzarella cheese & is going to freeze some of it this time.

Gonna have pizza for Christmas Eve and New Years! Sounds good to me! -- kisses, Smokey

Mmmm! You had me at the
German Tater Pancakes! The rest just makes it all the more purrfect!

Much better than what is lurking at our house today, Mom did a ... well, she did a YOUR Mom, mol. She was making scalloped 'taters with dehydrated potato slices, to which she adds a bag of mushroom soup mix from the Dad stash that she's trying to used up. She thought it would be cool to add a bag of Lipton Chicken Noodle too. So she dumped it all in the casserole dish and then ... it looked different. Too late, she went DUH! because she usually cooks up the bag of mushroom soup mix first! Too late to even try to strain it back out, so she stuck it in the oven & is hoping that it thickens up anyway. So far so good, should be edible.

But YOUR cold weather food is mush more than just edible, mol.

Yep, the old Aldergrove Elementary WAS a heritage building, but it was a heritage building with asbestos in all the walls and if they'd followed through with their original plan to make it part of the new rec centre it would have cost somewhere around 2 million bucks to renovate just that building. So the Powers That Be reluctantly voted to demolish the old building and put the 2 million toward the actual rec centre. I hear that some pieces of the building will be displayed in the new complex. We'll just have to see when it opens in May of 2018. Unless of course the two of us can sneak in for an early private tour.

We still have an old VCR that's part of the TV in Mom's room, it comes in handy. She watched a movie the other night from her stash of movies she taped off the TV way back in the olden days (snicker). She'd forgotten how LOONG it takes to rewind those things when you're done!

A windy picnic would be great, and then I hear that Angel Misty and a bunch of the Angels are going to the Cloud Cinema where they're showing favourite Christmas movies. I hope National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is one of them, love that light display!

I'll wear my big thick sweater and we can sneak in some of those loganberry moonpies! -- your sneaky Smunchkin!

MOL, yes, the sweater makes me look
like a Munchkin kitty, doesn't it? Oh, I can't believe I let Big Sis Becky do such things to me! Me, Mr. Macho Terror of the Starlings, Master of the Yard! Well, they do say real men can pull off pink ...

Mom never did see The Shining miniseries. Overall she's tended to stay away from miniseries, too much commitment when Dad & Big Bro Will were already taping a million things, and she wouldn't be able to actually watch any of it till Dad wasn't busy with his stuff. And of course because it existed he would have wanted to see every installment. Of course now I guess she could rent some of these things and watch to her little heart's content. The library probably has it, now that the last video store in town is long gone.

Oh gee, Mom was out today and she saw that the old Aldergrove Elementary School is gone, too. It hasn't been used in a couple of years and back in the summer they announced that Aldergrove is getting a rec centre & it will be built on the property where the school is. The Aldergrove Heritage Society was trying to see if they could have the original school building (built in 1914) moved to another location to become a museum, but I guess it didn't work out because while the old building was the only thing left standing on the site a couple of days ago, today it is down and a big excavator was mashing up the remains (sniff).

None of our kids actually WENT to that school, they went to the newer one in our end of town. But still, great-grandparents of people who still live here went to school in that very building, too bad the museum idea didn't work.

Yep, the people stranded up Grouse Mountain got fed by the fancy restaurant. There's no hotel up there, it's down at the bottom of the gondola but they kept the people as comfortable as they could.

I had a great time up there on our private night-skiing outing, and then down the mountain to the greasiest pizza shack we could find after our lah-di-dah fancy food. When you're an Angel, the whole world is your playground! -- kisses, Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Well, our Mom is more into the vegetarian pizzas with mushrooms, onions and such bunny food on them. But we are kitties and we are MUCH more sensible. Double, triple bacon for me please!

Oh, can you imagine a remake of The Shining in this day of CGI? That's Computer Generated Imagery. Why those crazy topiaries would be front & center! Probably couldn't do it back in the old days without it looking like cartoons or idiot humans running around dressed up like bushes.

Yep, we have the rain still. Not much of it right now, and not much of it supposed to come tomorrow. Mom got herself an appointment with the Notary tomorrow afternoon, so that will get that trip taken care of before the weather starts to turn ... if it does, it's still supposed to get cold but they're talking about less snow all the time.

Speaking of snow, I hear that some people went up Grouse Mountain in the big gondola Saturday, this is a big huge gondola and some were going to the fancy restaurant up on top of the mountain & some were going skiing. Except the big windstorm came up and they ended up having to close down the gondola. Some 300 people were stuck up there for the night.

They're all gone now though, how about we fly up there for a bit of night skiing? I just might be able to sneak us into that fancy restaurant too, have some of that fancy food that's almost too artistic to eat?

Then because you KNOW we will still be hungry, we can get some more triple bacon pizza. -- your Smokey

Hi Angels PawPaw & Gracie
Not doing a while lot today! I took a walk up on Sunshine Mountain and sat in the Gazebo with Angel Aria, we were making plans for our Christmas party!

My sister, Angel Shadow is staying in today with her b/f, Angel Lucky, they have a roaring ire going in the fireplace and they are cuddled in front of it just relaxing!

Pretty soon she will be busy doing her holiday baking as she bakes her traditional holiday cookies, tarts, pies, cupcakes and muffins for the parties all the Angels are planning!

I am sure lots of female Angels will have delicious aroma's wafting from their kitchens as they all bake their favorite treats for the holidays.

Some of you know that I play MHL and I am on Capt Dean's team, the Orange Crush and I am on a point streak right now. Even if we lose, I still get a point for a goal or an assist...he makes me blush! I am not used to all the attention! I love it though!

I c/p these from my page. Capt Dean sent these to me:

AJ has scored 57% of the OC points this season. Great job AJ, we are proud of you.

3 stars of the week: 11/29-12/5:
1-Angel Jinxie
2-Angel Clay
3-Angel Shilo

Great job kitties!

Hope you have a pawsome evening!
Purrs!

I sure can say "yum!"
And a Papa Murphy's triple bacon pizza is something to say it about! The Peach Melba moonpies are pretty good, too.

Our rainy day picnic was so good that the sun came out! Sure hope it came out down there too, and that the rain is drying up down there, because we are just about out of sandbags! I think more of the wet stuff is on the way here, so let's keep our umbrellas handy.

MOL, I think Queen Zoe might have seen "The Shining" too. Maybe that's why topiaries creep her out so much. Well, she's the Queen so Mojo & A. Mallow have been working hard clearing the things out for her and replacing them with cool things that she might like better.

The gingerbread town is looking great! Here, I can help you with some of that construction, looks like your icing bag needs to be filled up again. Of course I have to sample some ... for quality control purposes, of course :D -- your Smokey

Hi pretty PawPaw
Oh, Becky wasn't mad at Dad for the leg thing, but after the first day where it really hurt, she thought that having a broken leg was a great adventure and when anyone asked what happened, she would giggle and say "my DADDY broke my leg!" Oh, Dad just about crawled under the seats when she started telling everyone at Church! He felt about ten inches tall already, poor Dad. Then there was Big Bro Joe, who broke his arm when I was just a young guy. The kids had gotten up before Mom & Dad and Joe was jumping on the couch, missed a bounce and put his arm out to save himself. It didn't work. That was not the best wake-up Mom ever had. I helped console Joe, as you can see in my gallery.

When Mallow blogged Zoe this morning she included us, we're helping with the gingerbread town and wearing our loud Christmas sweaters too. There are tango lessons and Christmas baking lessons too, lots to do at the Castle! A. Mallow jumped right on the gardening job when Zoe mentioned a "special project", A. Mallow remembers just how much Zoe loved (?!) those topiaries that QAYY used to have and she just KNEW the project would be topiary-related.

NO, I did not hear that Portland got flooded! Someone must not have cleared the leaves away from their storm drains, mol. Boy, Jet-skiing down the street, it must be some flood. Let's get over there and see if we can help sandbag or something! -- your Smokey

Oh HEAVENS no! I would have never
tripped Big Sis Becky or Big Bro Joe! Now Dad, that's a different story, he swore that I lurked at the top of the stairs during the night just to get him. And I say humans who have cats should always remember to look down, mol.

No, DAD broke Big Sis Becky's leg! And that's what she very loudly told everyone who asked, Dad used to cringe. But they were playing that game where the kid lies on the floor, Dad leans over them & swoops his head down to say BOO! Kid giggles like crazy and pushes their feet into Dad's tummy. Then Dad swoops down & they do it all again. Over & over. Except they got out of sync and Becky pushed up with all her might while Dad was swooping down and *crack!*

Oh, Dad felt like the lowest of the low! That picture of Becky with Angel Shadow was taken the very first day she had her cast, and she was still hurting & crying & Shadow was comforting her. Within a couple of weeks she was walking upright with the cast on (even though the doctor said she wasn't supposed to) and we even have a picture where she climbed up onto the bathroom counter and was brushing her teeth with her feet in the sink. That kind of sogged up the bottom edge of the cast, but she healed well anyway.

Nope, Angel Shadow's people moved away years and years ago, don't even know where they are now, but Mom recognized the house when she saw it.

Oh, a scottish plaid reindeer with a blinking nose! It doesn't get any classier than that, I love the stuffed antlers that hang off the front too.

Hope you love your red sweater with the green tinsel garland neckline and 3-D knitted Christmas tree with dangling ornaments on it. If there aren't enough ornaments we can swipe a few from our tree at home. No one will notice! -- your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
That's Big Sis Becky with her broken leg that Angel Shadow is snuggling with, but the other picture on the couch is him with Bro Bro Joe. Shadow was about 6 months old when he came here, his original people had been going to keep him and felt bad that they couldn't. That's why Mom felt extra, extra bad about having to tell them that he was missing but she really hoped that he would show up at their place.

Funny, last summer when Mom was learning to ride her putt putt and Dad was following her in the car, they must have rode down every road in Aldergrove .. which isn't many. But one day they were riding around and Mom stopped, Dad thought she had a problem so when he pulled up to ask her what's wrong she pointed and said "Look! That's the house Shadow came from!" and Dad looked, and sure enough he had to agree. Though he would never have thought of that just driving by.

Oh, I think I would like Portland! And Angel Mallow would sure feel right at home. When we looked up about the ugly sweaters we saw something about how Portland is "the" place where young people go to retire. Sounds great to me! Sure, let's go looking for the tackiest of the tacky, ugly Christmas sweaters. I would say you have to wait till Christmas to see yours, but then you miss the fun of wearing it to all the Christmas events.

Think the Royal guards would let us into the Castle wearing blinking-nosed reindeer and dangling Christmas balls? Maybe if we bring that big bag of Atta Cat that your Mom unearthed in the laundry room. Let's say we try it! -- your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Oops, my bad! Angel Shadow is in Angel Jezebel's gallery, not mine! That's why you couldn't see him. He's the one being cuddled by Big Sis Becky with her broken leg. He was a pretty laid-back guy too, he was so nice & Joe loved him to pieces. Mom & Dad got him from some friends whose house he was born in, just like Mikey.

His first people lived at the other end of Aldergrove, which is only a mile & a half long, so when Shadow didn't come home Mom & Dad hoped he had found his way back there, where his mother still lived. Mom felt SO had having to tell their friends that Shadow was lost, but she had to so she could ask them if he had showed up at their place. He hadn't, and he never did. Mom hopes that he wandered north through the field where there are still farms on the other side, chasing ladies you know, because they hadn't gotten him fixed yet. And she hopes that he has great-great-great grandkitties out there somewhere.

Oh, Angel Shadow & I were WAY after Angels Jezebel & Pierre. Angel Pierre was born 50 years ago! In fact, this Christmas Day coming up will be his 50th Adoptiversary, but we don't put it on the CMR list because so many CC kitties are Christmas kitties and a lot of our bloggers are busy enough that day. Angel Jezebel was a pre-Christmas kitty, tomorrow will be her 48th Adoptiversary. And yes, Mom really does remember the date, that's just the weird way her mind works.

Oh cool! Mom just looked up the Portland ugly Christmas sweaters for me. Yarn bombing, they call it. Gotta love that! And there's some dude in Portland who makes ugly sweaters on purpose! Oh, let's go check them out. There are some Castle events coming up after all and we want to look our weirdest!

Not like anything could make YOU actually look ugly that is. After you, my dear! Portland awaits! -- your Smokey

Aww, thanks, sweet PawPaw!
Those kids sure did like to dress me in pink, didn't they? That's because it was the two Big Sisses who did it. A doll sweater Big Sis Becky put on me, would you believe? A dignified senior gentleman like me! I must have been about 12 in that picture.

Well, I can sure imagine living in a house with just one kitty because I spent my whole life in one. Our orange guy Angel Shadow had gone missing just a couple of months before they got me, and she still hoped that he would find his way back home and there would be two of us. But he never did. There are pictures of him on my page, but I never met him till I got to the Bridge. He was Big Bro Joe's special pal too, and Joe still missed him when I came along so I stepped in and kept Joe company.

The wind is howling and blowing outside today & some dark clouds are coming up! Trees are waving around out there and everyone is happy to be in the house. It feels like bedtime but it's barely even suppertime!

Oh yes, let's put on our yellow rain slickers and go splash in the puddles, then we can ride the clouds on the wind! Oh, being an Angel does have its perks! -- your cuddlebug Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Oh, what a great night cuddling around the bonfire in that double-wide Snuggie! Speaking of which, you would not believe the old picture of me that Mom has dragged out to embarrass me as my Christmas picture! Well, it's nice to be included in the family doings anyway ... I keep telling myself. It will be up tomorrow & you can laugh at me for yourself.

If your Mom orders Mildred Pierce it should be on DVD. From what my Mom saw that's all they have it in anyway, except for those new-fangled deals where you get it to watch on your computer. Looks like Amazon is starting to have a lot of those. Not in Canada, though, Mom went over to Amazon.ca to check and they don't have any of that online streaming stuff.

Oh, no, don't let your Mom get my Mom a colouring book! If Mom really wants one she'll get one at Save-on-Foods even if they're not the kitty ones. They had a couple that she likes even better than the kitty ones, but while there are a few pencil crayons around the place, left over from the kids' High School art classes, she really doesn't have time to do colouring books.

Back in my day she was big on those Logic Puzzles books, and Sudokus but she doesn't have a whole lot of time for that either, that was back before CC, Catster, FB and not to mention the house projects that she wants to do next year. And then there's Angel Mallow's campaign. Can you BELIEVE that someone nominated that nut job sister of mine for COTM?!

Oh, our Mom would love nothing more than to be 95 years old, all by herself in her own place still! Well, by herself except for kitties that is. I think there'll always be kitties! Maybe not three, though, she might settle in at two.

Angel Sweetums was black & white, a pretty little girl. Oh, not as pretty as YOU! Dad's sis has one more kitty, he's a pure white boy and his name is Gem. He's only 2 but he's already got the hearing problems that go with being a white kitty with blue eyes. Sis-in-law had to move a few months ago into a place where she's only allowed one kitty (horrors!), so Gem went to stay with her boyfriend who would bring him for visits, but now that Sweetums has crossed Gem gets to go home so that's one happy thing that came of it.

Oh, what a picnic basket you prepared for us! Are you ready to get dressed up for the coronation? It should be THE event of the season, you know! -- ♥ Smokey

Hi Angels Paw Paw & Gracie
Happy Thanksgiving week! Don't know about you, but I am still eating leftover turkey!!!

What say we meet for a Sunday morning breakfast at the Wild Rooster Diner around 8am. Their pancakes with wild mouseberry syrup is so good along with them chipmunk sausage patties!

AJ of course likes them catnip biscuits with hedgehog gravy. They do have a varied menu!

After breakfast we can all decide the activities for the day. I like to hear other kitties inputs so we all can do what we like! Take suggestions and all and do a few or more!

Did you have a nice Thanksgiving? I did. I invited Angel Lucky and AJ invited Angel Aria and we had a great meal. A Aria baked a scrumptious pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

Wewll, I hope you have a pawsome evening. I am gonna sit by my fireplace and do a crossword puzzle and knit my blanket.

AJ has a date to go to the movies with A Aria. I don't remember what they are seeing, but after the movie they are going dancing!

Angel Hugs!

Brrr! Pull that Snuggie tighter!
I hear that King Dean is having a hayride & bonfire so let's gather up some goodies and go over there to get in on the fun.

Sure, your Mom can order the Mildred Pierce DVD if she wants. Get her to look around Amazon, she was asking my Mom about where the CC Moms are getting those kitty colouring books and I think I remember someone saying that's where they were getting them. Looks like those colouring books for grown-ups are the newedst fad, our Save-On Foods has quite a few different ones and so does Shoppers Drug Mart. But no kitty ones, I think those come from Amazon. If your Mom wants to try one out it would probably be good for her brain. Bet the Butlers would chase the pencils, though!

MOL, your Mom is a stubborn old goat Capricorn, well our DAD was a Taurus and you know what that means. He lived up to it, too! Oh my goodness, I just realized that means that Dad's DAD was a Capricorn too. His birthday was January 6th. Now that explains a lot, he was one STUBBORN human! He lived to his mid-80's and stayed in his own house with stairs & everything. He started to get the old-timers though, his last couple of years.

He loved his kitties, he had one big orange & white guy named Murphy for 12 years or so. Then Murphy crossed the Bridge & Grandpa was bummed, so the family got him a new kitty from the shelter. I forget what Grandpa called the kitty, Mom & Dad did meet him, but Dad's youngest sister always called him Sweetums. After Grandpa crossed back in 2006, she took Sweetums to live with her and she called Mom the other week to tell her that Sweetums had crossed. So now Angel Granddad has Angels Murphy and Sweetums to rub on his legs.

Let's pack another of those picnic baskets for the hayride & bonfire. Looking forward to snuggling with my special girl! -- kisses from Smokey

Yay! Vote #4600! Big hug & kiss!
Why, I might actually even make it to 5000 before CC folds its tent.

Yep, Mom fell off the putt putt. Or rather, it went over sideways with her on it. And she was smart enough to not put her arm or leg out to save herself because that's how you break bones and that would have put a serious crink in her day. So no alien babies, mol. Tonight she finished pulling down the shelf in the basement. There wasn't much left, just a couple of shelf supports nailed into the side wall that she had to crowbar off very carefully so she didn't damage the wall. And now it's done.

Yay! Your Mom's alien baby is shrinking! Soon it will be a distant memory & your Mom had better wrap bubble wrap around the garbage can. Or herself, mol.

Oh good grief, that's what Mom says too ... well, not the take me out & shoot me part, but when Dad would bug Mom to get Will to cut the grass & so on, Mom used to say that when you have to start getting your son to do all the jobs involved in having a house, maybe it's time not to have a house. Dad would then grump and growl & tell her she was stubborn and was way too hung up on not asking for help. And she used to tell him that if he could figure out a way to have someone else go to the toilet for him, he'd do it. Oh, the pawrents were entertaining sometimes.

Yep we have a DVD player. And an old VCR too. Everything but Blue-Ray, we do not have that.

Oh gee, something moldy from the fridge to go with the burned popcorn and sour milk. You really know how to treat a guy! Maybe some hairy cheese and rock-hard bread for a sandwich & we'll be all set. Hey, it's still better than some of the stuff I used to eat on my adventures outside! -- Smokey

Great beaver tail hat!
I think we'll get to see the moon tonight, it's nice & clear up there & it's been bright all day. In fact, Mom took her little motor scooter out again and (snicker) guess what? She wiped out on it!

She turned into the parking lot of the grocery store, and she thought that speed bump was about 4 feet further in than it turned out to be. So when she realized she was right about to go over the speed bump at full speed (which would make the scooter bottom out, the back wheel come off the ground & dump it over for sure), she hit the brakes and caught just enough of the speed bump that she went over anyway. At a very slow speed, so all that got hurt was her dignity.

So she's been riding it over a year & just had her first dump, guess that's pretty respectable. Geesh, she must be jealous of your Mom's alien baby because she is just TRYING so hard to make one of her own!

Well sure she could get Mildred Pierce from Amazon, but she doesn't want to buy it (cheap cheap cheap after all), she just wants to watch it. You DO make it sound pretty irresistable to come down to your earth home where your Mom will break out the burned popcorn! Will there be sour milk and flat soda pop too? Oh, I am just bad!

MOL, your Mom could use a little red wagon to pull the garbage cans on!

Okay, I think my nose tells me that the beaver tails are ready, let's make sure they have lots of brown sugar on them! -- big Smokey hugs!

Hi pretty PawPaw
You got my Mom busy, and we learned some things. First of all ... sit down ... a section is a whopping 640 acres. So with 60 of them, that ranch b-i-l's parents had in Arizona was BIG!

Langley Township has about 100,000 people in it, that's back in the 2011 census & so there are probably more now. Aldergrove only has about 13,000 of those people, so it's more the size of Kelso and Mom likes it that way.

Nope, she couldn't track down the movie of Mildred Pierce, not the old one. The book was written by James M. Cain, the same dude who wrote The Postman Always Rings Twice and Double Indemnity. So it was good!

Well, it's awesome that your Mom's muscle relaxers are working anyway. She deserves to become a poodle for a while & hopefully it will ease that stiff neck.

Big Bro Will got himself a new TV yesterday, not a huge one, but it's 37 inches and it fits just right in the opening in our big TV cabinet.

You might remember, the big TV cabinet that Mom found outside someone's house on her paper route 3 - 4 years ago, with a "free" sign on it. Big huge solid wood thing and Mom & Big Bro Will quickly found that they couldn't carry it home. Mom had to go get the Devil Car and they boosted the cabinet onto the hatchback & Mom drove home carefully while Big Bro Will walked along beside & watched. Then they just about gave themselves hernias getting the thing into the house. So no way did either of them want to get a TV so big that they'd have to wrestle the big cabinet outside & put their own "free" sign on it!

No way, no how!

Yep, it's nice & clear here too and the moon is getting big so I hope you found the beaver tail hats! -- kisses, Smokey

Hi pretty PawPaw
Well, Evie's 2 day pawty is over and she celebrated by getting 2 assists in KCK's victory over the Ottawa Senators tonight. We raise some energetic senior kitties around here, mol. Our secretary is just about totally 'putered out but I insisted that I get to come by here before she packs it in for the night.

Mom still hasn't seen the movie Mildred Pierce, she had to be content with getting the book from the library. The only video of it the library had was that recent one & she wanted to see the original. The book was good, she's going to keep her eyes pealed for the movie on TV sometime. Mom just wanted to smack Mildred upside the head sometimes, catering to that daughter and chasing after those loser men! Maybe the men part was different in the movie, but in the book she just kept shooting herself in the foot whenever things were going well.

Yep, that sounds about right, Langley Township being 120 square miles. What blows Mom away is that her b-i-l's parents back in the day used to have a ranch down in Arizona that was HALF the size of all of Langley Township. His Dad seemed to think he was going to be Pa Cartwright and all 14 of his kids would bring their families to live there too but the 14 kids had their own ideas. Mom visited the ranch once, back when she was 16 & spending her Grade 12 year in Utah with her sister & the family. She rode an honest-to-goodness bull ... well, he was a little pipsqueak youngster barely old enough to be called a bull. And she didn't ride him for very long before she was on her butt on the ground. Oh, if her Mom had been there to see it she'd have expired on the spot! Very much the overprotective helicopter mom, was Angel Grandma. (doing flips in the air, laughing)

Well if Aldergrove has a village idjit WE don't know who it is. And you know what they say, when you can't figure out who the sucker is, it just might be YOU. Oh, I am a bad boy tonight, I hope Mom didn't hear that.

Well, sounds like the next big celebration will be the Full Moon pawty on the 25th. It's supposed to be really cold & clear but not on Pinto Island of course. And no hurricane season there either. Your sis-in-law Angel Pouncer sure knows how to pick a location! -- purrs & nuzzles, Smokey

Hi PawPaw, mi gatita bonita!
Langley's not a BIG-time city, there are no high-rises or anything. The Township is (figure, figure) about 10 miles by 12 miles, and aside from the City of Langley which for some reason separated from the Township back in the 60's, there is Aldergrove village at the east end, and then up north there's a little village called Fort Langley which goes back to the late 1700's and was the very first capital of all of British Columbia. There's a couple of other little growing communities and the rest of the Township is all rural. It's a pretty good place to be.

Oh, Mom was just reading about Glendale not long ago, in Mildred Pierce. Mildred lived in Glendale, but it sounds like in the 30's it was kind of boonie-land and the classy people lived in Pasadena. Now I guess it's all just grown into one big huge city!

Mom first saw Cassidy the kitten on FB, you know how people like to share cool videos like that. Mom never even clued in that Cassidy was local till she saw the article in the little local paper. Yep, small world alright!

Angel Shadow & AJ's bonfire was really awesome and so was the company! -- kisses, Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw petal!
Oh, this is the exciting thing I forgot to tell you! Langley isn't a little podunk, it's a great big township and actually Aldergrove is at the very farthest end of it, right next to Abbotsford where that new Notre Dame recruit comes from. Then at the other end of the township is Langley City, where the one-way street is with the stamp guy on it. So even though we kind of live in Langley, we still talk about going TO Langley, which is about 20 minutes away. Confusing, right?

Anyway, that isn't the exciting part. You mentioned that little kitty Cassidy, well Mom saw his video on FB a while ago, then last week she was reading her little freebie paper that she delivers and there was little Cassidy in it! Turns out he's from HERE! The Tinykittens website where his video comes from is affiliated with the Langley Animal Protection Society. I know, that much you knew, mol. But the Langley Animal Protection Society is actually in Aldergrove, it's the shelter that Angel Mallow came from! It's a really great shelter, it's the one that Mom is thinking of volunteering for, except they don't need anyone right now.

Yep, Mom says backing out on the one-way street is the worst, especially in the winter when your window is fogged up. It's always got lots of cars on it, and people walking across too. And trying to get a parking place in front of where you're actually going? If you do it's a minor miracle! It IS a cool little block, though, Mom just avoids it if she's not actually going to a store that's on it. Krazy Bob is on that stretch too, just a few doors up from the stamp guy. They used to have a really awesome kitty store too, but they're gone now. There's an antique mall there, Dad used to do books for one of the dealers there too.

Okay, grab that double-wide ugly Christmas sweater and bring one for Gracie & Max too, and us four Angels will head over to Angel Shadow's cloud for that bonfire. -- your Smokey Angel
