Hi my sweet PawPaw!
Well it sure is secluded today here on Pinto Island! And CC in general, Mom had NO e-mail notifications this morning and she thought for a minute that the Luminatics had caught up with us. But here we are. That's strange because a couple of my sibs did get blogs yesterday.

I think everyone is still sleeping it off after that big Wolf Moon bash! Not to mention Friday the 13th! And all that fried catfish we provided, too! Let's get up early and go for a sunrise walk along the beach, wish on a few starfish .. pick some mangos and pawpaws and enjoy some more time in the tropics. -- love, your Smokey

I caught one! I caught one!
Hang onto me, don't want to get pulled into that icy water! Whew! Got him! Oh, this is going to be just great to cook up and bring to the Full Moon pawty tonight!

Yeah, Mom WAS the one-armed paper hanger, that's why I didn't blog you sooner myself. That and I thought CC was going to vanish right back into the black hole right away. But since it hasn't done that yet, and we get our Wolf Moon pawty right here, I couldn't let my blogger be derelict in her duties any longer.

Oh boy! Speaking of black holes, looks like YOU have a bite on your line now. Here, I'll hang onto you so you don't get pulled in. Heck, I'll hang onto you anyway! -- kisses, Smokey

Hi my sweet PawPaw!
Well shame on ME, CC has been back up for over a week now and this is the first time I come to visit your page! I had a fun time with you at the skating pawty last night, sipping hot chocolate and skating under the disco ball. TRES retro! Mom has to leave for work now and it's still cold at our place for a few days. Are you up for bundling up for some ice fishing? -- your Smokey

Oh yes, my darling PawPaw,
there ARE white cranberries! They're the same as red cranberries, actually, they are the earliest berries of the season. The red ones are the berries that have been left the longest. And they say that all cranberry juice is clear, it's just the skins that are red.

Oh, folding bikes are a way better idea than leaning the against your wall all year or hanging them up (like Seinfeld did!). Love the folding ones! We can take them for a ride along the trail at Derby Reach, where the very first Fort Langley was before the one they've recreated for the tourists. It's part of the Trans-Canada Trail, can you imagine a trail that goes ALL the way across Canada??

Wow no, I didn't know that your little Kelso is the County seat! I guess it's not quite so small after all.

This sure is delicious cranberry bread you made for us! And what an awesome idea to string cranberries fir the Christmas tree. If they last till Christmas, that is. Three months is a long time to be looking at those delicious berries after all.

Oh, you'll have to wait just a little longer to find out what I have in mind, let's just say it's a special event that happens every year in Fort Langley and Mom & Big Sis Becky went to it one year and really liked it. Oh, it is SOMEthing like a haunted house ... you'll like it! -- your Smokey

Hi my sweet PawPaw!
No Big Sis Becky yet so I am going to see if I can sneak in a visit to you.

No way! Holy cats, I just Googled that bike that folds up into a backpack! Looks like it doesn't have much of a seat but that is pretty cool! That would be good too for people who live in little apartments in the city and want to bike to work!

Well, we are wishing that the weather for yesterday and today had been reversed! Today it started out cold but got nice & sunny by afternoon. Perfect weather for the Cranberry Festival. Except being yesterday, THEY got pouring, pelting rain! Not just regular rain, cloudburst rain. Pouring all over the place! The poor humans out there in the voyageur canoe races!

But being the magical world of CC, we can just swap the weather for those two days and take advantage of the lack of crowds at the same time, mol. Part of the main road was blocked off to traffic and we really had time to check out the little stores in Fort Langley (they have a TON of antique shops!) and the special vendors selling things like cranberry jam. We can get some cranberry muffins and cranberry tea and sit on the deck outside the Lelem' Arts & Cultural Cafe overlooking the Fraser River and watch the voyageur canoes paddling along pretty much the way they did almost 200 years ago when Fort Langley was a busy trading post and the first capital of BC. Or if you want something stronger than tea, we can get some mochas with cranberry syrup and whipped cream.

And of course we can watch those guys in hip waders corralling the cranberries for Ocean Spray. And there are bags of the fresh little red guys for sale so we can make our own cranberry creations.

Let's get a bottle of cranberry wine. Can't decide between white or red cranberry wine? Let's get both! And of course we have to check out the Fort Langley City Hall building, I'll just bet you've seen it in a TV show or movie or two ... or three of four ... they're always using it for SOMEthing! But not during the Cranberry Festival so before we leave let's spread a picnic blanket on the grounds.

There's something else I have in mind to do in Fort Langley, but that's for another time, a little closer to Halloween! -- your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Yep, Mom was up early doing our rounds the other day. She gets up somewhere around 6 these days. That way she can relax with us, have her breakfast, do our special day kitties and COTM votes & some of our blogs before she has to leave. She used to do that when she was flagging, too, except of course there was no CC blogging then. She would have her breakfast & read the paper, and sometimes cuddle with me if I felt like it. She doesn't like waking up & having to run right off to work.

Well of course there's punkin wine! And beer too! I don't think there's too much that someone doesn't make wine out of! She's had it made from cranberries, too. And she made some of her own out of blackberries one year. She's thinking that's an experiment she won't be doing again, it tasted okay but it sure was a lot of mess.

Get yourself ready, Saturday is the Fort Langley Cranberry Festival! If it's not pouring rain Mom is going, I'd say even if it IS pouring rain, we should grab our umbrellas and go. There are all kinds of cranberry goodies and a tour of the cranberry bog and the voyageur canoe regatta on the Fraser River. Not to mention, Fort Langley is a very cool little village, the original capital of BC with the historic fort & everything! That's worth going to even when the cranberry festival isn't going on!

So take my paw and let's get there early! -- your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Would you believe that this morning Mom has gotten ALL through Catster, Modern Cats, YouPet and even checked her e-mails up to date? And of course CC, it goes without saying because that's our first stop of the morning. If she can't get anywhere else she comes here, and if she can't do anything else she does the special day kitties and the COTM kitties. Just in case she can't get here later on for some reason.

Oh, wasn't that a great time at the apple barn? No, Mom didn't pick apples because you pay to pick a 5 lb bag and that is way too many apples for us. So she just bought some from the farm's store where you can get just a couple if that's all you want. Here, I brought us some Gala apple slices and some pieces of aged cheddar. That's what she's been having for a snack lately.

Yep, they had a punkin chucker! A pumpkin cannon they called it, and Mom forgot to try it out, darn it. I'd say gathering up some chunks for pie & all things pumpkin will be great!

Well, the Mom has been giving Evie a nice cuddle while blogging and now Evie has moved on and it's time for Mom to start getting ready. It's the day to put out the recycling (no garbage this week) so she'd better get started. She likes this 9:30 a.m. start to work but she works till 6 when the store closes. Not sure how she will like THAT part. It's pretty dark by 6 these days, it will feel like bedtime as soon as she gets home! The Earthlings will like it, though, because Mom will stop home for lunch and then Big Bro Will will get home maybe about 2:30 or 3.

Another apple smoothie, with extra cinnamon! And oh, how about we find one of those veggie pasta makers and see if we can make pumpkin spaghetti? -- your Smokey

Hi my sweet PawPaw!
Bring a nice warm snuggie, because we're going to the Taves Apple Barn in Abbotsford! It was a lovely day today, just the right amount of cold with the sun shining brightly and that's where Mom went. She had fun and I thought the two of us should head over there too. There's a corn maze ... closer to Halloween it will start opening at night and be the Haunted Corn Maze, we'll have to go back then and hide in the stalks to scare people, mol.

But this time we'll go in the daylight and learn our way around ... oops, think we took a wrong turn already! Gotta backtrack! There, that's better!

They have a petting zoo, and a pumpkin cannon, a u-pick apple field where we can pick a basket of apples to take home for later. There's even a u-pick pumpkin field so we can start practicing our carving skills for later in the month.

Let's walk through the Country Store and watch through the viewing window how they make their very own cider! Then we can buy some of said fresh cider to take home and enjoy. Mom likes to warm it up with a cinnamon stick in it, that's one of her must-have fall treats! Right now, let's get a couple of apple cider smoothies and wait over on this bench, it's about time for the hayride to leave and we want to get a nice comfy spot.

We're here a little later so the little kids with the mucky candy apples have gone home to supper and we don't have to worry about getting any of the caramel stuck in our fur.

MOL, your spaghetti song made us so hungry that that's what Mom made tonight!

Now I'll sing one for YOU:

"♫ Don't sit out in the apple barn
with anyone else but me ... ♫"

Oh boy, the hay ride's starting. Hang on to me, I'm scared .. -- your Smokey

Thank you, sweet PawPaw,
for sharpening my machete! We needed it tonight to hack through the e-mail but things are pretty good right now. Moji Blackbear led Mom into her room for a sit down and a snuggle, silly little kitty thinks that's the only place for getting cuddles & belly rubs! Then Evie sat on Mom's lap while she got started on CC. Made Mom feel a lot better. Don't you hate when you go to do something that's supposed to be fun and it ... doesn't ... WORK?? <okay, breathing now. Lowering blood pressure ... except Angels don't HAVE blood pressure, mol>

Oh, gee, did you hear about all the new Angels? And Maggie Meme too, one of the Moj's & Angel Mallow's fellow Hairballz riders! Mind you, she WAS almost as old as I lived to be, and she was very healthy right up until .. well, she wasn't. I think that's the way we should all get to go but of course her Mom still needs Angel dust. And Sasquatch, who Angel K. Sparky's Mom rescued from that nasty kill shelter when his owners left him there and he got all raggy & sickly because the shelter didn't do anything to help him. Mom Sue helped him all she could and if they had to be his last days, she made them so much happier than they would ever have been in that shelter!

Let's take them ALL a whole bunch of Angel dust! And some more for Uncle Kerry too.

Oh, Fatburger! We know THEM, there's a Fatburger about 20 minutes or so down the road in Langley. And one in Maple Ridge too, across the river. Dad used to love them. Figures, doesn't it? Their burgers are ginormous! Mom liked them okay, but she had to get a kids' burger because all the others are just plain mountains!

Feeling up to climbing a mountain of beef? Let's swing by and order a couple of Triple Kingburgers! -- your Smokey

Hacking my way through the cyber-jungle ...
think my machete needs sharpening after the last couple of days! Ohhh ... Mom ended up giving up on CC last night because if she hadn't she'd have tossed the 'puter through the window. And she just BOUGHT that window! And it's getting COLD out there! So Angels Mallow, Jezebel & Pierre & I told her "step AWAY from the 'puter ..." Now this morning it was every bit as bad until, strangely enough, she closed her e-mail program. She always keeps it open in a tab so she can check it for vital FB notifications and that kind of thing. She's getting out the scrub brush gonna clean out the computer after she's done here. See if that helps. I'm steering WAY clear, I remember the few times Dad insisted that I needed a bath and I don't want to get caught up in any clean-up efforts!

Well, if Uncle Kerry is always up & around then he should be motivated to have a good recovery. Mom's was so long because her knee was involved in the whole thing too, it was a nasty bone break AND one of those dreaded soft-tissue injuries in one. But if he's not the type to sit on his behind doing nothing, he'll be raring to go and our Angel dust will help him do it! And the cheeseburger will help build those bones back up, listen, I can HEAR them knitting ("knit one, purl two, yarn over ..." See?) Gee, he didn't have to do THAT to get an early retirement, mol.

Yep, authentic Mexican rocks! Dad used to love this place in Lynden called El Ranchito, it was run by real Mexicans and that includes the cook. Mmmm! Mucho gusto!! But WAY too much mountains of food! That's one of the reasons Dad loved the place so much, of course.

Mmm, I think I'll go for a beef chimichanga with lots of sour cream! And some Dos Equis. Cheers! -- your Smokey

Oh my goodness, poor Uncle Kerry!
That sure DOES sound familiar to my Mom! I say we get RIGHT down there to San Pedro and sprinkle him with our very best Angel dust! Some with added calcium, mol. And let's take him some milk and a couple of burgers too. Mol, I'll just BET he looked out-of-it, they probably had him on some GOOD stuff at that hospital. Hope the neighbours were able to bring him back home, too. Hope he can manage okay taking care of himself for the first while. Or does he have a significant other to help out with that if need be?

Well I've had that happen sometimes, Mom checks our blogs and then a bit later she checks them again and finds a blog with a time stamp that shows she SHOULD have seen it the last time she checked. Sometimes I swear they take a while to turn up.

After we sprinkle Uncle Kerry, a place called San Pedro sounds like it should have some pretty good Mexican food. Let's put on our sombreros and see what we can find. -- hugs, Smokey

What a great time at the PawPaw Festival!
And an excellent choice to enter the Purple People Eater PawPaw Moonpies in the cookoff, they won first prize for baked goods! Another triumph for you, my dear. The PawPaw loaf did pretty good, too. It was that Smokey Joe's PawPaw Pepper Sauce on top that really made the difference.

MOL, they said "We wear short shorts" in the Purple People Eater song because remember, the Purple People Eater wanted to be a rock & roll star. So there he was, rockin' out. Definitely a highlight of the song!

Nope, no Squeeve sightings lately. Well, we DO see him stopping in to vote for Mouse. I think he's semi-retired from CC. Our Moms still get to see Gma over on Human Channel, though. But A. Mallow does miss the guy too, not to mention BeeGee's family. They both kept things lively around here for sure. And now Mom's going to work and A. Mallow can't even stir things up in the manner to which she has become accustomed. Oh, whatever shall we do?

Now that IS strange you didn't notice my latest blog! Wonder if you did what I do sometimes, Mom whizzes through our pages, I see that the last blog is still from you, but I sometimes don't notice that it's a NEW blog since the last one I saw. Wonder if that's what happened? Wouldn't be surprised. Our Moms are notoriously unreliable after all!

Well, I'm happy that we got to visit the PawPaw Festival this year without your Mom ending up in the hospital, mol. Let's go take her some Angel dust to help make sure things stay that way! -- your Smokey

Now why DO they call it a PawPaw patch
when the things grow on trees? Shouldn't they call it a PawPaw orchard? Oh, the mysteries of humankind, mol. Well, whatever they call it, that sure was a nice walk we took through that one last night.

MOL, I was definitely thinking of Steve when I heard about the renewable energy regatta. And we ARE in Ohio after all. Just glad he didn't get "wind" of it and show up, I think his renewable energy would have walked off with the prize!

And today, the PawPaw cookoff! Now what shall we make? There's Pawpaw loaf, and Pawpaw pudding, Pawpaw pie .... that's it! We just HAVE to enter your Pawpaw moonpies! We should walk off with the prize for sure with that one.

Of course, I already HAVE the best prize of all .. a very special PawPaw heart! -- happy purrs, your Smokey

No way am I kidding, sweet PawPaw,
Mom totally saw SIX Fairlanes the other day. Four of them sere all in a row, headed up the road along with the Thunderbird and the other two she saw in the same area on a couple of other deliveries. Something was definitely going on in the area, alright. One was red & white, she doesn't remember exactly what colour the others were and she's not sure if any of them were '55's. If not they were close, right around that vintage. There were enough differences that at least 2 different years were involved. Mom was trying to watch the traffic, but she definitely had her eye on those classic cars too.

What a great full moon pawty! Now it's on to the PawPaw Festival. Here's the blurb on the Renewable Energy Regatta: "Design, build and operate a boat that uses nothing but solar, wind, and/or muscle power in any desired combination. Build for speed, endurance and maneuverability using no combustion engines or energy storage on board."

I would say beer can boats would count just fine! And we can use wing power! But first, let's get some Weasel Paw Pawpaw Ale and try the Dogs Gone Wild pawpaw BBQ & habanero wraps! Tonight after the regatta we can join the Pawpaw Jeopardy game and tomorrow is the big Pawpaw Cookoff!

And after dark, let's go wandering in the Pawpaw patch! -- your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw petal!
Yesterday by the time our blogger got home, took us to hockey practice, wrote up Mikey's golf summary and did Modern Cats, she was so pooped out of computers that the never even went to Catster or even Human Channel! But tonight it feels like fun again so here I am.

Today she had a fun time driving car parts, one of her deliveries was to the shop on a great big farm where she actually saw a deer and a fawn as she was dropping off the parts! The shop guy had his phone out taking video of them and Mom waited till they'd gone over the fence to drive away so her car didn't scare them.

And not only that, in the course of her travels today she saw a total of SIX beautiful restored Ford Fairlanes driving around. And a Thunderbird too. Must be some classic Ford event going on somewhere nearby! The weather is absolutely great and will be for a couple more days, they say.

Well, your bones are right, unless something really bad happens tonight we will be having the Full Harvest Moon. Did you know there's a lunar eclipse to go along with it? But bummer, it's not going to be visible in North or South America!

So, I guess we take a fly over to Europe tomorrow and then join the fun on Pinto Island. Then ... it's PawPaw Festival weekend!! Are you ready to rock Albany, Ohio on Saturday? There's going to be a cook-off and get this, a "Renewable Energy Regatta"! Gee, do you think they'd accept a beer can boat?

Well, we'll just have to make sure we're there on Saturday to find out. -- kisses, Smokey

Hi pretty PawPaw!
Oh, did I say the displaced plant is a fern? Oh gee, I DID! Well I was wrong, it's a little bitty baby palm so hanging it anywhere is not going to happen.

Oh, it was SO cold this morning when Mom put the kitty scoopings outside! Felt like there should be frost out there but there wasn't. Now it's really warm and all the garbage & recycling is out front waiting. And ... one of Mom's co-workers just drove by! She says it's kind of fun to see them out the window. She goes back tomorrow and she sure hopes someone thinks to pick up her car from the body shop or they will have 3 drivers and only 2 cars. Well, if the worst happens Mom can just walk over & pick her car up. Actually, if the WORST happens, her car will be in the body shop tomorrow morning with the hatchback and door missing or some such state where she can't pick it up! Well, we will see!

Well I sure hope we're here for all those good days. Let's see ... there's Gracie's crossaversary & the Butlers' birthday, then Angel Jezebel's birthday, then your Mom's appointment ... we don't stress either about CC not being here either, we know that whatever happens and whenever it happens, we'll be landing on our feet.

Oh, it is a PURRfect day to get out the piggy smoker and have a cookout! Bright sunshine and ... 57, going up to 70. Going to be pretty much sunny and in the 60's & 70's all through the rest of the month, but the nights are going to be getting too cold for the tropical Mallow plant so Mom brought it inside this morning. She had to move a fern to make room for it. The fern is safe for kitties to nibble on but it's pretty small and can't afford to be nibbled, so she had to find another spot where the Earthlings can't reach it. Especially Evie!

Mom just noticed this morning that Evie is missing some of those little bitty teeth in the very front, between her fangs. Well she IS almost 15, I guess that's to be expected. She sure snarfs down her Greenie Dental Treats well enough every morning!

Yep, I guess we can cut OHSU a break and just get ready to escort your Mom to her appointment on Oct 19th. Which will be here before we know it, scary huh? There is Mallow .. excuse me, HALLOW-ween stuff in the stores already! Angel Jezebel's birthday is right around that time and now that Moji Blackbear's and the Full Moon pawty are just about here, we are daring to hope we're still around for A. Jezebel's birthday and maybe even one more COTD for her.

Yep, those are the Royal Galas, the stripey ones! Mom's going over to Hamilton Farms to get some more after she takes the garbage cans to the last roundup, mol.

Let's go along and get enough to make some apple cider to sip in those nice cool evenings! -- kisses, Smokey

Hi my sweet PawPaw!
It's a sunny day and CC is still here, all's right with the world!

The apples Mom has had the craves for are the Royal Galas. She likes Delicious, REALLY likes Delicious, but the last few time's she's gotten them they just haven't been the same. So she got a few of the Royal Gala and they really rock.

Nope, the tropical Hibiscus isn't going in the carport for the winter, too cold for it out there. It has to come in the house or it won't survive the winter. The other one, the one like Lily has, that one is fine outside. But on her first trip Hibiscus hunting, the goofy Mom accidentally got the tropical kind. Real pretty, but kind of high maintenance.

Oh woohoo, they want to CAT scan your Mom! I say anything with "cat" in its name must be a good thing, right? But they haven't gotten back with a date? Guess she has to get nagging again! Oh, I DO hope they find something that they can DO something about so your Mom's innards will work better! Let's see if we can give them a nudge, shall we? A well place claw, even from an Angel, can work wonders! -- your sneaky Smokey

Hi my darling PawPaw!
All this talk about apples has been making my blogger feel like one. She passed Ralph's Farm Market 5 or 6 times yesterday in the line of duty, they had a sale on the kind she likes and she didn't stop in, she made a note to self to pick some up after work. Did she remember? NO! So if she drives past Ralph's today she is thinking she'll take a detour & go inside, mol.

After all, it's not like we are going to share any of OURS, is it?

I don't know why lima beans aren't popular, they blended just great into the chili and you couldn't even tell they were there. Chili with beans & chicken, great food for a day like today!

Mom thought she saw frost out there on the recycling bin this morning, but it was just the way the light's hitting it. Good, because if it was frost she'd have to run rescue the tropical hibiscus and bring it inside. And since kitties who nibble on those things can get stomach aches, she still needs to figure out where to put it when it comes inside. Oops, I think an idea just dawned ...

Of course we could always bring it to Pinto Island for the winter and come next summer it will be big and bushy with lots of bright red flowers. The other one, the Rose Mallow is supposed to be tough enough to stay outside all winter. We'll see!

Let's swing by the hospital in Detroit to watch over Win & Kelsee's Mom till she's out of surgery. Then let's maybe go bug those humans who haven't gotten YOUR Mom her results yet! Then a trip to Voodoo Donuts might be in order before we come back to find something good on the tube to snuggle to. -- your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Well I don't know if that Kevin Bacon ad is for real, but there IS a bacon perfume. Fargginay's Classic Bacon Parfume Cologne, since 1920 (!!) and if you're more of a movie buff, there is Boss Hog's Bacon Fragrance Spray. Hmmm ..... I'm not sure I'd like it, I might get myself followed by (shudder) dogs!

Oh, the chicken in the chili was Da Bomb! She used a combo of pinto beans, lima and kidney because that's what she has lots of. She ran out of navy beans but who cares, it was great as it is and she has TONS of those other kinds. She cooked the beans in the slow cooker one day, then the next day she added the chicken chunks and all the other chili fixin's and slow cooked it all day.

It was only a little bit of chicken, not even half a cup diced up, but it went a LONG way! It was so tender it fell apart! It's a great way to use the formerly petrified chicken and she's going to eventually do it with pieces of those two steaks that are still in the freezer too. Great cold weather food and one batch fed her 5 times.

Oh, what a great day to curl up in the La-Z-Cat chair, cuddled in a Moonpie throw watching Mildred Pierce. Today let's head to the apple orchard and pick a bushel so we can make some nice spiced cider! -- the Apple of your eye (mol), Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Well, we made it! It's September! Wasn't it fun sprinkling Queens CoCo and Angel Kieara and their families with Angel dust? Sure glad we could be there!

Oh, there was nothing in with the beans the other day, they were just cooking all by themselves. Then they sat in the fridge yesterday because Mom was at work, but today she's turned them into chili and it's bubbling away in the slow cooker. No bacon, though. We had packages of cooked diced chicken in the freezer so she's put one of those in the chili.

Yep, I guess it was right around this time last year that your Mom started falling down all over the place. But this year well get to enjoy the Pawpaw Festival for sure. -- kisses, Smokey

Hi my sweet PawPaw!
Wow, Mom sure wishes it had been like THIS around CC yesterday! Yesterday it was pretty hectic what with her having work, Mikey having some holdover Gotcha Day blogs plus Gotcha Day congratulations on YouPet and Catster, the Commish had a hockey meeting and it seems like yesterday everyone who is still here on CC decided to wrote to us. Not that that is a BAD thing, no way, but today is her day off and she's almost finished with all our correspondence already! That's okay, she has a pot of beans cooking and wants to cut the grass. Or the heads off the weeds anyway.

Then there was the e-mail from her sister that she answered first thing in the morning before our blogs even. The NERVE! I wanted to come get you and go flying over the woods in that wonderful fog we had yesterday morning! So let's do it this morning!

Yes, I remember that PawPaw Festival last year! We were kind of preoccupied watching over your Mom because she was in & out of the hospital right around that time. Had us pretty worried, especially considering how quickly things had just gone from bad to worse with Mom Janada! So this year we should be much better able to enjoy the festival!

Oooh, look at the fog rising up through the trees over there. Let's go see if we can scare Bigfoot! -- big Smokey hugs!

Way to go, PawPaw Petal!
You did it! You swooped right in and nabbed the big vote! Yep, I reminded you, but that's okay. Looks like Mike & Mallow are going to turn their odometers over soon too. Who would've thought we'd still be around to see that?! Coronation and full moon pawty, here we come!

Actually, the full Harvest Moon is the day before Moji Blackbear's birthday so if we make it that far we have a whole lot to celebrate. Oh, it's always a celebration around here anyway. Especially when I get to share it with you!

Oh, gee, there's even more to celebrate! The Ohio Paw Paw Festival is September 16 - 18th! That's right in the middle of the Full Moon and the Moj's birthday weekend. Well, we'll put in an appearance at the festivities on Pinto Island and then slip over to Ohio to celebrate the humble pawpaw. Which ... I just heard somewhere recently is what some people call the papaya fruit, too!

Oh, isn't Queen CoCo's pawty a ball? You look great in your string kittykini and as usual, the Castle chefs have done a great job for all of us. I can hardly wait for the coronation! -- kisses & hugs, Smokey

Guess what, PawPaw Petal?
Only TWO more votes now till my 5200! And just a few hours till Mikey's adoptiversary, and almost time for another coronation too. Things are going great here on CC!

Mom is going around talking about how she feels human again today. I do not know WHAT she is talking about, she is a human every day as far as I've ever noticed. But the temperature has taken a definite and very welcome dip, it might have something to do with that, mol.

It was just too hot on Thursday, she ended up not going on that history walk, not after a whole day of work and then having to walk papers around in the 97 degree heat. Last thing she wanted to do was drive to Fort Langley and walk around some more, mol. There's another walk this coming Thursday and so far she even has that day off so it's looking pretty good for going that day. Shh .. we won't tell her anything about it and ruin the surprise!

Queen CoCo is having a pool pawty at the Castle this weekend to finish out her reign, so get your prettiest bikini and I'll start blowing up the Sharknado floatie for us to lounge in the pool on. -- kisses, your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Wow, I AM close to some more zeroes, aren't I? And we thought I was lucky to get to 5100! The little Moj is racing along on her way to 4000, too.

Oh geesh, Mom does not WANT to be top supervisor! Or any supervisor, she just wants to stock shelves and pick orders and deliver parts. Seems like everyone does a bit of everything as time goes by and they learn, but there is a lady who's in charge of all the orders & keeping track of who is delivering where & when they left. There's a big whiteboard where you're supposed to write it down before you leave, so they always know where you are & have a general idea of when you'll be back. And you have a radio with you so they can always get ahold of you. And you can always get ahold of THEM, too. It's already come in very handy.

Mom flagged with those kind of radios a couple of times, when they were in a big long work area where she couldn't see her partner, so you needed the radio to say important stuff like "last car is the red VW!" Then your partner would know that after that car went past them, it was safe to send cars from THEIR direction. Then they'd say "red VW just went past, sending vehicles your way now!" Then they didn't actually SEND the vehicles till you'd said "OK" because the last thing you want is cars head-onning one another. Mom thought it was kind of fun, mol. And now she gets a lot of the same kind of fun without getting calls at 5 a.m. saying "can you be in downtown Vancouver for 7?" It's a win-win!

Oh, Fort Langley is really cool! It's the first capital of BC, and the first place the fur traders went back in the old days. Lots of history there and there's lots of Indian history too. And get this, the band there is called the Katzie First Nation. See? They are just surrounded by cats, can't get away from us! They're Coast Salish, just like the Tulalip band whose land Moji Blackbear was born on.

I think we can slip along on the walking tour and learn a few more new things! -- your Smokey

Hi, sweet PawPaw (part one)
Nope, you never know when the Mom is working and when she's not, mol. Last day she worked the guy who's doing the scheduling right now showed her on his computer how to find the schedule calendar. She's even allowed to edit it and make notes down at the bottom, like "I need (whatever day) off" Or if she & another driver work out a swap between themselves, they can just go on the computer and change it themselves. This is that "empowerment" thing that they were talking about in one of Mom's job hunting workshops, where they don't treat the employees like little babies. She is liking that.

So today she called the Langley Times & gave them her notice. Her last day of deliveries will be September 9th, unless they have someone ready to start the route earlier. That's what happened last time she quit the route, back in 2013 after Mallow crossed the Bridge. She went over her list of people who want no paper, or extra papers, so it's right up to date for the next person because she's been keeping track in her head the last while.

So the papers are all taken care of. After her last day she is going to toss out the metal cart she's been rolling them around in because it is ready to fall apart! The rubber has peeled off the wheels, the sides of the handle came undone and she's had to do a little DIY fix on them, the thing is toast and she will gladly retire it, mol.

Well, Mom works Saturday so no introductory paddle lesson, but there's a walking tour in Fort Langley that she wants to go on, it runs the next couple of Thursdays at 6:30. A First Nations lady leads the group around the area and the small reservation that is still there, talking about some of the history and another First Nations lady sings and drums. Right up the Mom's alley and best of all, there's no charge! ALSO right up the Mom's alley, mol.

Well, for Big Bro Joe I was definitely that "special" kitty. And for Big Sis Becky it has been Evie. Big Bro Will, he's harder to read. He loves all of us in turn, but I kind of think Angel Mallow had the best bond with him even though Mikey loves hanging out & being guys together. Angel Mallow used to give Will's keyboard the stink eye if it was on his lap when SHE wanted to be, and of course there were those couple of times when Will stuck up for Mallow, like when she ran into the house one night with a raccoon chasing her.

Dad loved playing feather wand and red dot with his little bright-eyed Moj and his Michael when they were little, but neither of them would ever come to see him to sit on his lap, mol. Evie was his special helper downstairs in the office and liked to spend time laying on the bed with him while he watched TV. Mom, it's hard to say if she has a "special" one. If she does it's probably Mikey. But now that the Moj is here, its hard to say. It just might be BOTH of them together, since they are such good pals.

Whoops, ran over! Rest of the blog below
Aww, that is so sad that the little girl kitten at Queen CoCo's house didn't make it! She seemed to be doing so well but kittens that young, stuff can happen fast. It's amazing that her brother had his leg amputated at just one day old. I hope he makes it! I think his little sister will become his very special guardian Angel and watch over him very carefully!

Oh, I DO know the answer to this one. Mom found this out a long time ago, while she was researching Mikey's King campaign. The very first kitty to join CC was one named Silver, from Irvine California. I'd say he probably belonged to someone who worked at CC. His CC number is 2479 because we share our member numbers with DC and all the other Channels and DC opened first. How do you find this stuff out? You go to the CLub Cat page where it shows the most recent members. Then go to the most recent member's page and at the top click "next". It takes you to the oldest member! A lot of kitties must have done that because Silver hasn't been active in a lot of years but has a lot of blogs that say stuff like "cool! You're the first CC member!"

Hi my darling PawPaw!
Yes, our computer acts up when it gets too hot. It's Mom's little laptop so it only has a little bitty fan and then sitting on hot legs doesn't help. Mom puts it on the arm of the chair sometimes & that helps. Anyway, we shouldn't have that problem today, thank goodness. Three days of relief, they say, before we go back into the neighborhood of 90 for what we hope is the last time this summer.

That paddle in the canoe the other day was sure refreshing! Why, did you know that just last night Mom was dabbling around on the site for the Fort Langley Canoe Club and she might register for one of their drop-in introductory paddles before the summer ends? They just have a couple more sessions coming up and she'd like to see how she likes Voyageur Canoe as something to do next summer.

I think Angel Aunt Samantha's Mom just didn't log out last time, because we KNOW we have seen her more recently than 5 days! Yeah, this is a rough one for Mom Lillian, even when you have a lot of kitties you tend to have one who's just that little bit more special and I think Rhoamin was that kitty. Oh, that reunion with all his sibs and his fur mom was one to see, though!

Let's see ... going by his page Rhoamin was the 246th kitty to join CC, the first Knight kitty to join and he did it on September 13, 2006. He was one of the friends whose 10th anniversary we wanted to be able to celebrate and paws crossed, it's August 21st and we're still here.

August 21st??! Oh gee, that means that yesterday was Angel Mom Janada's birthday! And she celebrated by having some low-life hack her FB account so they could spam all her friends, crummy to the max! We love that our Moms' CC FB friends are right there to sound the alarm when someone tries that kind of stunt! They are protective mama lions, mol!

Let's get over to Angel Mom Janada's cloud and help Angel Sir Leo do something really special for her. Why, I'll bet he has the staff at his Crab Shack working double time! -- your Smokey

Here, sweet PawPaw. Here's a hanky.
Gee, we just had Rhoamin come and join us and now today it's Angel Aunt Samantha's crossing day. I will NEVER forget the early morning SHE arrived! All of CC was in shock and we Angels were on triple Angel dust duty! I do have to be glad that she & Rhoamin didn't end up with the same crossing day. Even though in some ways it would have been fitting, what with them being the first King and Queen in their family.

Oh, for sure someone would have posted on CC/FB if CC hadn't still been up. And Aunt Lillian would have posted on Rhoamin's YouPet page, just like she did anyway. But they are one of CC's "first families" in a few ways and it just feels right that CC, the original, should be the place for us to gather. And we did.

Well, things are settling down here now. The breeze is blowing through the window and the 'puter is behaving. For a while there it was getting so hot it was acting up. The sky is clear and it's purrfect to see the big full moon. Which has not quite put in an appearance over the trees yet. Mom has a little bit of paperwork to do and return when she goes to work tomorrow. Stuff like emergency contact info, etc. So she's going to get herself a big hunk of chocolate pie and get that done.

Good! Then we get a chance to be alone without her looking over our shoulders all the time. Geesh, give a human your CC password and they just keep snooping at ALL your business! ~~ big loves, Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Oh it was so sad yesterday to have to welcome Rhoamin to the Bridge. In her announcement his Mom talks about a couple of options the vet said they had ... I remember those options, the vet told Big Bro Joe about them when he brought me in to the emergency clinic in pretty much the same state as Rhoamin probably was. The vet said they were expensive, which didn't bother Joe so much, but they would only get me at the best a couple more weeks, where I still wouldn't be the healthy happy kitty Joe remembered and wanted me to be. Then I would have to live the worst few days of my life all over again. That's not how the vet put it, but it's how my humans all saw it.

It's never easy, though. Let's go take some Angel dust to Mom Lillian and all the other Knight kitties. Rhoamin was their big brother and Head Cat of them all and they will all miss him so much. We're happy that CC is still here for us all to gather for our goodbyes to him on his page that was his cyber-home for almost 10 years. It just feels right that we should all be here.

Oh, if they could see him now, though! With all his littermates and cousins an nieces & nephews who have gone before! Why, it looks like a b/w cat convention here at the Bridge! -- your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Yep, totally seriously, a not-so-new single wide is around 100,000! Then out where Big Sis Caroline lives in New Brunswick, you could buy an older 2-bedroomm HOUSE for that! Mom says it is very tempting, except for the logistics of traveling across the country with three Earthlings that is!

Hey get this, yesterday Aunt Kay was talking about when her parents came to Vancouver in 1943 and bought a house for $2,700.00 No, there is not a zero missing there, that's 27 HUNDRED bucks, a couple of hundred more than Big Bro Will just paid for a 20 year old car! Anyway, the house is still standing so Mom thought "Google time!" It's not for sale, but a regular old house near it is selling for just short of two MILLION bucks! There's nothing in the area going for less than a million, and this is not a fancy area! Oh honestly, how ANYONE can afford to live in Vancouver we don't know!

Bell Buckle is way more my speed, mol! Just a little homestead, you're right, not like we have kittens or anything. And if you have guest rooms, they just tend to attract (shudder) guests! BBQ's and barn dances sound just right. I WAS born in a barn, after all! -- your better half, Smokey

Oh sweet PawPaw, if you heard
what places here are selling for, you would think we all lived in mansions up here! Why, you can hardly get a broken-down single-wide trailer for under 100 thousand up here these days! Where for 100 thousand where Big Sis Caroline lives, you could buy what is pretty much our house we have here. Mom's cousin says that in Saskatchewan you can do pretty well too. Tempting. More options to mull over, Mom says. MOL, NO one in Saskatchewan cares about how many kitties you have!

Okay, lots of land and Pinto ponies it is! We can always add on if the house is little, right?

Oh, the Dolly Parton song is just perfect inspiration to keep us going while we decorate! This is going to be fun, mol. A huge Taco Bell order to go and lots of Sea Sprite towels. And endless moonpies and free passes every year to the RC Cola & Moonpie Festival! -- kisses, Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
Aww, say it's not true that my Earthling brother heard a closing time for Catster in his group over there! I knew no good would come of him nosing around in those groups! Still, it's good to have a heads-up. We'll have to make some Smokey-tinis with bacon swizzle sticks and pawty our way right on out. After all, this isn't the first time we've faced the end and we're still plugging along after that one.

I think it might get kind of quiet around here tomorrow so it would be a great time for you to take me on that tour of your old stomping grounds on that bicycle built for two.

Hmm ... Manhattan Beach, huh ... (google google google) I don't see anything for less than a million and those are the modest looking little older ones. Or condos. Most are 2 or 3 hundred thousand or more. A little rich for THIS Tom's blood alright! Here in little old Aldergrove we're kind of between Kelso and Manhattan Beach, mol.

Wow, there is some really nice stuff for sale down in Tennessee in the Smoky Mountains! For 200 grand or so! The way real estate is up here, that is WAY reasonable! -- your Smokey

Hi pretty PawPaw!
Well, the Moj has handed over the reins ... or should I say the handlebars? to Kali, who will lead the Hairballz into the sunset on CC. Maybe, mol.

Now, would you believe there IS such a thing as a Smokey cocktail? It's one of the hottest trends in Mixology and one recipe recommends using a strip of bacon as a swizzle stick. That got your attention yet? There's a Smokey Manhatten, a Smokey Old Fashioned .. and get this, Smoked Salmon Vodka! Oh, we must experiment with some of these around the campfire after our hike on Sunshine Mountain! Maybe make a few for the next Full Moon Pawty. With Pawpaw flower garnish, of course.

And BBQ with PawPaw Pepper Sauce from the Smokey Joe sauce company! I'd forgotten about them, mol.

Oh, that sounds like a really great view your Mom had when she was in High School! Was that in the house that was not far from the Mildred Pierce beach house? I hate to even THINK of what those places would sell for now .. practical feline that I am, mol. -- your Smokey

Hi my sweet PawPaw!
Well, the Moj figures she will just stay leading the Hairballz till the end unless one of the others really, really wants to have one last turn for old times sake. She doesn't want to be a selfish hog after all.

Well we are all supposed to get that e-mail but we haven't seen it so far. Mom even checks her Junk folder too. But we don't need them, we all keep our ears to the ground and we knew about August 10th anyway. Well, for Catster anyway, we just weren't sure it meant us, too. Now we do.

Hey, did you hear that Jakar had his treatment yesterday? His bloodwork was good and they gave him some real heavy-duty stuff. So YES, let's head over there with lots of Angel dust for him because he could start feeling sick and draggy and if he does, we want it to pass quickly.

Yep, Selene is Angel Toomey's sister and I know you know HIM! She seems like a fun kitty, Moji Blackbear has been having fun getting to know her a bit, since she took the Hairballz over there a few days ago of a "get better" visit.

Let's go over and take her and Jakar both some Angel dust! And Rhoamin too, the poor guy is really feeling crummy with his kidneys and I sure remember what that feels like! And some for Mom Lillian too. After we make our rounds let's fly over to the lake and watch the moon reflect in the water. -- holding paws, your Smokey

Hi sweet PawPaw!
I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is, Mom was just on Mikey's page and he is sitting at 99 right now. She says she won't vote him in the morning so your Mom can get the big one.

Bad news is, Dean was on Mikey's page and he said his Mom got an e-mail that the new last day of CC is August 10th. I do tend to think they mean it this time. I mean, really, REALLY mean it. At least it's good to have a date.

Well, it was a different kind of cancer that Monty Brown beat, Jakar's is very challenging and the same kind that A. Mallow had. Angel Toomey's sister Selene is having chemo for the very same thing and SHE was just on the Moj's page saying she's doing very well so far. The Moj had taken the Hairballz over with some chicken soup & Angel dust. I guess the Moj is doing the Hairballz on CC til the very end, her week is supposed to end on August 6th but no one else is scheduled so she's just going to keep on truckin'. Or rather biking, mol.

Oooh, spooky! We really ARE on the same wavelength, aren't we? Well I am just loving floating down the lazy river, catching fish to smoke and nibbling on bacon wrapped tacos! -- your Smokey

Hi pretty PawPaw!
Well, this morning we got "you got blogs" e-mails so I guess they're not broken after all. Not like WE need them, we're here all the time anyway, but some poor kitties who already think CC is gone need to get their notices so they know better!

You look great in your purple chiffon swingy dress with purple shoes and a pawpaw flower behind your ear! And that reminds me, in just over a month it's the Ohio PawPaw Festival! Sept 16 - 18th, mark your calendar, we have GOT to go and celebrate all things PawPaw!

I had a ball dancing at the Coronation with my special girl, and I think our guy Jakar was feeling pretty good, enjoying dancing with Lily too. I sneaked a little more Angel dust onto him. I hope he can kick that nasty c-word, but his pawrents and all of us know that odds are he won't kick it forever. Not even Monty Brown kicked it forever, and he was amazing, kicking that c-word's behind all OVER the place!

Well after all that dancing, let's do a little fishing on the lazy river at Sunshine Mountain. I'll fire up my piggy smoker and we can start preserving them for the winter. Weird as that feels to be thinking about THAT now, mol. -- your Smokey

You sneaky girl, PawPaw!
Wasn't that fun to sneak up behind Jakar at the Coronation and douse him with Angel dust? Why, he will be brushing it out of his fur and off his tux for ... well I hope a long long time! MOL, he never even saw us coming!

Well, Mom has to get back to work on the paneling so it's a perfect time for us to get some dining & dancing in at the Catvention Centre before it's time for the Sharknado pawty! What a weekend! I made sure to bring a case of those Cheeto paws!

Mom just noticed there were no "You got blogs" e-mails this morning and she KNOWS we got blogs yesterday. Hope that's not a bad sign! -- your Smokey
