How We Met

His first mama went to Bridge to care for his angel brothers, so Honeysuckle Express delivered him to me and I fell head over heels in love the minute I peeked into his carrier. He is a sweet, regal boy who seems to have accepted his new home with quiet grace and no questions. This can only be due to the kindness of his first mama and the brave sweet ladies and gentlemen who carried out the adoption and delivery of him and his fursibs.
His original page is 80092. Birthday 5/30/1998
Adoptiversary 4/30/2011

Poem by Mallow:
There once was a King name of Bennie
Loyal subjects he had very many
He ruled with great ease
On a planet of cheese
And was too busy to even eat any!

Dear Angel Bennie and Mom Jenny
Sweet angel, I am sorry to hear that you have left us and crossed over the Bridge! You were a lucky guy to have had TWO loving Moms in your lifetime. Now you can be with your first Mom in Heaven!

Mom Jenny, I know that you fell for Bennie as soon as you met him, and you gave him a loving home for the second part of his life. I hope that you can smile with the happy memories you made with him.

With deep sadness, Spanky and Aunt M

Aww, nyet, my dear furiend, Angel Bennie
I only just heard that you crossed the Rainbow Bridge, old furiend. Our sincere condolences to your dear furamily, Angel Bennie.

My brothers and I are so very sorry that you had to cross the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. But we also heard that the Bridge glowed just a bit brighter as you crossed over and that all our CC angels were right there to welcome you and take you under their wings.

We've brought by a big bouquet of bright blue Forget-me-nots to honor your crossing, sweet furiend.

Mom Jenny, Baba and Fursibs, we know how very difficult it Is when a beloved furbaby cross over, but you must know that your Bennie's beautiful and elusive feline spirit has been released from the confines of his weak and failing body, and is now free to explore all the vast and amazing wonders of the universe which lie beyond the Rainbow Bridge. He will often return, however, to curl up purring within his special place in your heart.

Please accept our sincere sympathy and deepest condolences. Be at peace, dear furiend.

Hedley, Neelix and Jakar

Hi Mom Jenny
Our hearts broke when we heard that your precious Bennie crossed the Rainbow Bridge. We know Koshka better but he would mention him in his blogs sometimes. He was quite a character.
We know that you will miss him very much and he will always have a place in your heart. You always do for your fur babies.
With love and many prayers,

Twelve considerably silenced Harley's can be seen as they travel to Spartanburg, SC tonight to pay their respects to K. Bennie and family, as their friend has gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
The Riders pull into his hoomin's driveway and begin removing their helmets to reveal the faces of Q. Zoe Monique Puffalump, Kali, CoCo, Q. Angel Mallow, K. Winston, A. Beast, Possum, Q. Talley, Q. Lola, Mojo Blackbear, Cyndee and Maggie Meme. They dismount and head to meowmy's door, as Q. Lola steps forward to knock on her door. A sad meowmy soon comes to the door. The group surrounds her in a big group hug. They tell her they know that she is feeling sad tonight, as K. Bennie has gone to the Bridge, but hope she knows, he'll never be far away and will always be watching over her.
Maggie hands her a beautiful Forget Me Not Plant, a scrapbook for Bennie's pictures and memories and an engraved plaque with Bennie's name on it. She asks everyone to walk outside and hands everyone a red balloon to release to the Rainbow Bridge. Angels Ringo Starr and Yum Yum take a special basket to the Bridge filled with some special things for Bennie.
Maggie yells let's roll gang we've got some more stops to make, We hope we made your day a little brighter. The Riders speed off as Angels Yum Yum and Ringo Starr fly over sprinkling their special blend of Angel Dust to keep the Riders safe wherever the road may lead. God bless. Love, hugs and purrrrrrs.

Hi Sweet Angel K. Bennie,
We were so saddened to hear that you had crossed the Rainbow Bridge, yesterday and my family is sending your dear Mom Jenny sincere condolences on your loss. We know you will be missed so much by her and your sibs. We also remember well the day you came to live in your 2nd forever home. And the great time we had when you were our king in August of 2012. You were a very handsome guy and now you're a very handsome angel. All of us here are sending prayers and comforting hugs to your Mom and pray God will give her the strength to get through the difficult days ahead. May the memories you share give her comfort.

What the earthly world lost, yesterday, the heavenly world gained. You were welcomed with open paws by all the angels at the Bridge and the night sky will be a little brighter now that your star is shining with the others. Take care, sweet angel and here's a vote for you! We love you and will never forget you. RIP, sweet Bennie.

Dear Angel King Bennie, Mom Jenny & family
Aw King Bennie, say it isn't so. Our hearts broke when we read the mews that you had crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, your dear Mom Jenny and your precious family.

We'll never forget the wild fun we all had with you as our August King in 2012. It was beyond imagination and so much more. Remember the out-of-this-world fun we had on Catopia with the Bittens? Every single day of your reign was amazing. You were such a crazy kitty. Where does time go?

Well my dear furiend, I guess Heaven just got a little bit more wild and crazy with you as the mewest Angel. (Heavy sigh.) God bless you Angel Bennie. We know you are in great company. We hope your dear Mom can close her eyes and try to remember the happy times with you. It's going to be hardest on her, but we know you'll always be by her side to comfort her.

You were one of our very first furiends on CC and you'll always have a special place in our hearts. You are and always will be loved. Until we see you again dear furiend, rest in peace.

Sending soft purrs and comforting hugs to your precious family.

"Today, be grateful for the gift of sharing your earthy span with creatures who comfort. Animals are our spiritual companions, living proof of a simply abundant source of Love. None of us need feel alone. And if there is a gift, then surely, there must be a Giver." - Sarah Ban Breathnach

Hey Bennie
I don't exactly have a return address any more, but that's okay, you can just visit me up here at the bridge. You mom is gonna be missing you like mine misses me, and I almost feel bad about that, you know? But what're ya gonna do? I send her little signs that I'm still busy making mischief, no matter where I am, but that almost seems to make her sadder. *sigh* Maybe I'll lay off for awhile and help you get to know your way around up here. Not that I'm some expert. Maybe we can learn together. Sounds like a plan?

Hugs and whisker kisses to your mom. We all know how much you meant to her. it's gonna take a long time for her heart to heal.

(and mom Val)

Love ya, Bennie!
Boy, were we ever stylin' rollin' up to the Bridge on that very special Harley ... you and your favourite Court Jester and Guardian Angel, Yours Truly.

And what a reunion with Mom Kathy! And Angels Hanny and Rusty and Gio and Kato ... well there ain't a whole lot that's good about welcomin' new Angels to the Bridge, but those reunions are definitely one thing that's very good.

Now we can both help watch over Mama Jenny and Babushka too. I'll show ya where the Angel dust caves are. Oh, and watch out for Angel Apples. He'll try and get ya into a poker game but ya should stay on good behaviour with Management for .. oh maybe at least a day.

But then again, you ARE the closest that CC has ever had to a Ruler of the Universe. That should get ya some privileges.

Oh, Bennie old pal, I know your Mama will be missin' you somethin' fierce tonight (sniff). Let's go take her some Angel dust and purr her some really nice purrs. -- MJ

hi bennie ben
well we didn't have a blogger for hockey or the coronation as momma was at gma's sounds like wouldn't have mattered if we had.

is sprinkle rain here in ga today and weather hoomans are saying we will have possible strong storms 8-9 pm tonite. hope they wrong. wind is getting up already tho

momma got up at gma's sunday morn with her left ear hurting. it has been rough on her along with her back and all. and her sinuses are giving her trouble too. momma feels the ear problem is probably coming from her sinus as there is no discharge or anything from her ear to indicate an infection. is still hurting today but not as bad. she had some ear drops from last season with pain meds in them, so she been using them and seems to help. momma said using them from the onset could save a tri to the dr and seems she be right smart momma!!!

we missed getting to be at hockey and seeing friends

have a great evening

❀ Reporting from Mallows Bay ❀
The sun is high in the sky and we’ve just finished Chef Maggie Meme’s amazing lunch of Beer Battered Fish with Beer Battered Onion Rings; and Barley Beer Soup. Now the regatta continues ~

WHAT is this? A floatin’ Easter basket? Nope, it’s Gin Gin, Maggie Meme and Spike, in a boat decorated as an Easter Basket. Spike has lined it with sod & grass, and Maggie Meme & Gin Gin have filled it with decorated Ukranian East Eggs. Live Easter bunnies (on loan and with full protection regalia) ride’ with them amid red tulips, yellow daffodils, and purple hyacinths. Hope everyone can swim!

Lily & RennieBoots got their Mom to finish off the Kirkland Light and they are in the water! Quincy’s brothers and K. Leo are doin’ a bit better with their St. Pauli Girl & Dr Pepper craft. Not a leak to be seen, to the relief of Rev. Loki who doesn’t want to get his wings wet. Sammy and Luke keep drinkin’ and strappin’ their empties on the side with duct tape as they go. Here come the Hockeytown Cats with Mischief & Dayzee bailin’ water & usin’ the oars, tryin’ to keep up.

K. Whiskers & Q. Talley made their boat from soda cans with some Red Bull & Monster energy drink cans for extra oomph. They’ve also used some carbonated soda cans, unopened until they are in the water when they pop the tops on the "agua con gas" cans and hope their boat takes off like a flash! Or at least doesn’t sink.

Angels Q. Gracie & K. Max have the full moon flag flyin’ high above the “Ol’ Rootie Tootie”. Watch out for the “Misty on the Bay”, Greycee Mist has fired up a battery operated hair dryer to get some extra momentum.

The “Zoo Crew’s Cutter” is bobbing along, slowed down a bit by the full cans of Sam Adams on board but Pique and the guys are doing their best to lighten the load <hic!>. Sebs & Timothy’s cans of choice are Faygo & Vernors, their sisters have outfitted them with crash helmets and water wings, looks like they might be needin’ both before the day is through!

Puzzle got to the beer can shed late, but he is not deterred. He got an old 18 wheeler inner tube and painted a nice sunrise over the water with palm trees and flamingos on the shore. He glued on a can holder shaped like a manatee and used mom's "grab-it stick” and her king sized pillow case with red hibiscus for a sail. Not technically a beer can boat? Those empties training behind in the water say otherwise!

The Beer Can Regatta Concludes ~
As the sun starts to sink in the West, Chef Maggie Meme has put the finishing touches on our supper of Beer Brisket, with Beer Can Chicken in the BBQ pit and for dessert, Beer Cake with Caramel Icing

Bringing up the rear in our Beer Can Regatta is K. Tuck in the “Grogmonsta”. It’s had some tough going since it is burdened down by a full dance floor complete with disco ball. And dancers! And a full bar, dispensing as they go. The Pawty Animals rush to grab it as it crosses the finish line and drag it up into the park, can’t let any of that brew go in the drink!

Our intrepid racers will find entertainment as K. Tuck cranks up the live music and the kitties, now dried off & changed, start dancing to the “Beer Barrel Polka” and move on from there.

We round out the weekend with fireworks over Mallows Bay before we head back to Mallow Castle, where everything has been made ready for the coronation of Queen Quincy.
** Don’t forget, I will be passin’ the crown to our next COTM Quincy tomorrow, Monday, Feb 29th at 5 p.m. Pacific, 8 p.m. Eastern on the Cats Meow Resort page #271826 ** ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

❀ Reporting from Mallows Bay ❀
Good morning, Beer Can Sailors! The (snicker) worthy vessels have been inspected and are waitin’ to sail to glory. Or to the bottom of the bay, mol. To get us in the proper mood, Guest Chef Maggie Meme has prepared a breakfast of Beer Batter Pancakes, Beer Sausage, Grilled Steak & Eggs with Beer & Molasses, and toast & jam made with Beer Bread.

Throughout the day there will be a Beer Garden for refreshments AND emergency boat repairs, K. Whiskers & Q. Talley brought kegs of catnip juice as well. Beside the reviewing stand, Royal Maestro K. Pushkin conducts the Mallowwood Bowl Orchestra in classical arrangements of beer commercial themes and drinking songs from around the world. A. Q. Cherish is flyin’ her sail plane overhead and takin’ pictures for her memory book which she will share with us.

To start us out, Queen MJ and Prince OJ for the 4th year in a row are sailing “The Eyesore”. Queen MJ waves to the crowd while Prince OJ tries valiantly to bail out the water that is slowly seeping in. They manage to make it out into the Bay, around the marker buoys and to the finish line. Whew! Relieved, they return to the reviewing stand and Queen MJ declares:

“Let the Regatta begin!”

Sams & his pal Exit Rocketman have been collecting “Rolling Rock” cans and they’re off to a good start. Their vessel is staying on top of the water. Mostly. Now come Angel Misty & her Angel sibs, sailing the “Misty on the Bay” with one of Mom’s old bedsheets for a sail and Angel Moki is holding two cans of Dad’s aerosol deodorant out the back of his family’s entry to propel them through the water.

The boats just keep on coming! Here come the Zoo Crew, their tails are dragging in the water but they valiantly sail on. Q. Mimi’s “Queen Mimi”, also makin’ its 4th appearance, does seem to be as seaworthy as she’s claimed. A. K. Easy & the V.I. Kitties are sailin’ in style, the cans are somethin’ called “Steel Reserve” and it’s inspired the kitties inside to turn a few extras into musical instruments. With lots of V.I. Kitties, there are enough to play that wonderful steel drum music from the Islands.

K. Spanky Jack captains the “S.S. Captain Jack”, made with Pepsi cans while K. Steve in the “Sink or Swim” is doin’ a little of both, mol. Evie & Angel Shai are usin’ empty catpaign bottles from their anniversary as pontoons and with all of A. Shai’s sibs paddlin’ and steerin’, the Prince & Princess of the Palms are up front doin’ the Royal wave. Hope no REAL waves come up, mol.

It’s almost Beer Can Regatta time!

As one by one the finishing touches are put on our fine array of watercraft (snicker) and they are loaded onto transports, I wanna introduce you to my Mystery Destination, the place where we will be sailin’ our fine vessels. This is an absolutely for truly real place. It’s on the Potomac in Charles County, Maryland and it is called .. Mallows Bay!

And even better, as if bein’ named after ME ain’t great enough, let me introduce the wonder that is …. Are ya ready for this one …. The Ghost Fleet of Mallows Bay!

Here’s how it came to be: During World War 1 the US Government announced plans to build 1,000 supply ships for the war effort. Boatyards across the country started churning out wooden steamships. But there was a problem: The ships were put together so fast that they were kinda barely seaworthy. And then just as the first hulls were hittin; the water, the war ended. The government was left with over 200 obsolete, leaky boats. Long (long, LONG) story short, they ended up in Mallows Bay on the Potomac where they sit today, the largest shipwreck fleet in the Western Hemisphere. And possibly even the world (Yay, we’re #1. Well, YOU are, I’m a Canadian).

Because they’re made of wood, after almost 100 years each vessel has become a mini-ecosystem with trees up to 40 feet high and all kinds of vegetation growing out of ‘em. The wrecks are now home to Osprey, water fowl, and other wildlife. Bald Eagles nest in the nearby trees along the shore. There’s a picture of the bay with its Ghost Fleet in my gallery.

There’s a Mallows Bay Park there now, with boat ramps and everything, and that’s where the Beer Can Regatta will start tomorrow. Tonight, Prince O.J. & I are gonna kayak through the wrecks in the moonlight. Then we might or might not have a romantic hideaway ready on one of the ghostie ships. We ain’t tellin’. See you there! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Oh, gee, I have been so busy that I almost forgot one of my very favourite holidays! Yesterday was Inconvenience Yourself Day. But I remembered in time to celebrate.

First of all, to start things off right, on Tuesday night I put my alarm clock in the bathroom and locked the door. When it went off in the mornin’ not only did I have to pick the lock with a knittin’ needle (which I had to find first, it’s not like I knit or anything ~ as IF!) to get to the (ahem!) facilities, the stupid alarm was playing “Who Let the Dogs Out? Woof, woof woof woof woof!” full blast the whole time!

Then it was time for my mornin’ shower. Plannin’ ahead, I had turned off the water heater Tuesday mornin’ and hadda wait for it to heat back up. Apologies to those guests of Mallow Castle who might also have been inconvenienced by this one … guess I shoulda posted a warning sign or two, huh?

Then I headed off to my mornin’ golf game but first I hadda unthaw my Harley key, which I froze in a block of ice Tuesday night before retiring. I hadda wonder if I’d even make it to the golf course because I siphoned about, oh … 4.8 gallons of gas from my 5 gallon tank. Yuck! Ptoooie! And of course, I wasn’t carryin’ any spare gas OR my wallet with me! Do I know how to celebrate or what?!

Then it was time to get to work with Prince OJ on our beer can boat. Of course, I hadda blindfold myself first. And mix up the tools!

Then I finished out the day at home watching TV! Of course, because it was still Inconvenience Yourself Day, I had asked Prince O.J. to hide the remote so every time I wanted to flip the channel I hadda get up and do it the cavecat way! Then I finished out this very special day by climbing into my cozy soft bed, which I had of course inconveniently short-sheeted when I made it in the morning.

See why this is one of my favourite holidays of the year?

Meanwhile, keep workin’ on finishin’ up your beer can boats. Tomorrow, we transport ‘em and I reveal where the Beer Can Regatta will be held. ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Hi K Bennie
What’s purring with you today? Thankfully we are enjoying a much quieter day today. Yesterday was very stormy. We sure are having some weird weather for it to still be winter. We usually get lots of thunderstorms in the Spring not in the winter months. This week our temps have ranged from the upper 70s to the 30s tonight. As you can imagine, Mommy’s sinuses are not happy.

I am resting on my heated mat on the windowseat, watching the birdies & squirrels outside at my birdfeeder. Sissy is napping in her heated bed. Ah, life is good!!

It seems that when I had that “talk” with the fleas and gremlins about how they’d better quit messin’ around with our beloved CC or else, I musta thrown a scare into all you kitties too. Looks like we’re goin’ into our 4th day where NO one’s brave enough to climb up into the COTD window! Why, I musta even scared ‘em over at the other channels … Dog and Horse Channels’ Windows of Fame are also empty, while Bird and Small Animal Channels have had the same member in theirs since Saturday! And we won’t even talk about how long that Tank of the Week has been in the window over on Fish Channel!

Yeah, weird events are happenin’, but really, what would you expect with me in the Castle? None of it stops the kitties workin’ on their beer can boats. K. Bennie is doin’ a great job tendin’ the beer can shed and Angel Misty & her sisters have commandeered their Dad’s lawn tractor to help shuttle the cans to the various buildin’ projects.

Angels Gracie & Max have dibs on the Fosters, Bud Lite and Dad’s Root Beer empties for their vessel “Ol’ Rootie Tootie”. K. Tuck’s project is still under wraps, but he just took delivery of a coupla kegs and some beer taps? What IS that boy up to?

Spanky Jack is collectin’ Pepsi cans to put together a patriotic lookin’entry. He’s lookin’ for paint now to stencil the name on with. And that begs the question, when ya christen a beer can boat, just what DO ya use?

Angels Red, Moki, Duchess and Frosty’s creation is comin’ along so well that they are considerin helpin’ their Earthling sisters Mischief & Dayzee. MOST Angelic of ya, but remember we wanna keep Dayzee very very busy so she will stick close to home. Gin Gin has gotten together with Maggie Meme and her niece Spike and they are hard at work. Sebs & Timothy have gone for Labatts Blue and Strohs empties to create their masterpiece.

The mystery of Mimi’s missin’ Old Rats Breath empties has been solved. Turns out that her brothers Blackstone & Grayson ran off with ‘em and were playin’ a rousing game of Kick the Can. Psst … I think Mimi mighta kicked THEIR cans, know what I mean?

Close call at MY house, Mom almost found all the cans that Puzzle brought over and stuffed under Mom’s bed! Why, Mom mighta sent my little sis Moji Blackbear to Rehab if Evie hadn’t found the stash first! She’s cleared ‘em out and she & A. Shai and his sibs are all puttin’ ‘em to good use.

Throughout the grounds of Mallow Castle we hear the sounds of kitties at work with staplers, scissors, hammers and of course that miracle substance, duct tape. K. Steve had a little trouble with his glue gun, though. (whisper) I don’t think anyone will notice that patch of missin’ fur! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Wow, what a Full Moon pawty weekend! See why these bashes are legendary? Hope ya liked Prince O.J. & I dressed as Douglas Fairbanks & Mary Pickford, the original power couple, mol. Angel Q. Gracie and her Angel K. Max rocked it as Catgelina Jolie and Purr-ad Pitt. And a big thanks to Angels Elmie & Pouncer for that absolutely rockin’ spread they put on!

We are back at Mallow Castle now and preparations for the Beer Can Regatta go on. Mimi is all aflutter because it appears that someone ran off with some of her stash of beer cans. If ya see anyone besides Mimi constructin’ with Ol’ Rats Breath empties, those cans are probably ill-gotten. This has been a public service announcement, mol.

Quincy says her brothers and her hubs K. Leo are workin’ together, they are safe from the Wrath of Mimi since their cans of choice are St. Pauli Girl and Dr. Pepper. Whiskers and his sisters are safe too, they have a theory that usin’ Red Bull and Monster energy drink cans will give that extra “oomph” to their boat.

Meanwhile, Lily & RennieBoots are workin’ on an entry and so are the Zoo Crew. K. Tuck and his pals are also workin’ on an entry, top-secret and kept under a tarp. Q. Mimi says there had better not be any Ol’ Rats Breath cans under there!

As the day’s construction ends, the kitties gather outside the Great Hall where a “Do Not Enter” sign has been posted all day. There’s been some activity here durin’ our weekend away, and as soon as Evie & Angel Shai come in from workin’ on their boat we’ll let ya in on it. Oh, here they are!

<Ahem!> Today is a very special day for these two kitties, it’s the two year anniversary of the day we all gathered to watch them exchange their vows under the Chuppah in what we thought was probably the last wedding on CC. We are very glad to have been wrong about that!

Since my sis and bro-in-law are partial to the tropics, on this their anniversary I would like to honour them with the titles of “Prince and Princess of the Palms” and celebrate their special day with a luau …. Kosher style.

Our first course is “Shoyu Chicken”, boneless chicken thighs simmered with flavors of soy, ginger and brown sugar, just long enough to fall apart at forks touch. We will of course enjoy this with rice, a typical staple of the islands.

For dessert, there is nothing better than classic Malasadas. These are Portuguese fried doughnuts, light and dense pillows and these ones have guava and lilikoi filling. I dare anyone to stop at just one. Master Baker Angel Sandy has made a very special anniversary cake, seafood & tuna, half & half! She made cupcakes, too!

Aloha…or as many Jewish people in the Islands like to say, Shaloha! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Hello K Bennie
How was your weekend? Ours was pawsome! Today it is raining again, which is purrrfect sleeping weather! From the weather reports, it sounds like we are in for very severe weather tomorrow afternoon & night (Tuesday) with “torrential rains, large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes”. We are NOT looking forward to that.

Stay safe, warm & dry.

“♫ And the DAYS dwindle down … to a PREC-ious few …. ♫” Okay, okay, I’ll try not to be such a drama Queen. But I’m goin’ into the last week of my reign, hard though it is to believe! To illustrate how fast my time in Mallow Castle has flown, I’ve changed my profile picture from my Mom’s masterpiece to the one that the CMR Crew created for their COTM Hall of Fame page. I wanna say once again how much I appreciate all of you lettin’ me immerse you in the weird & wonderful world of Mallow this month.

I tell ya though, I think there must be a curse on Q. Mimi’s golf course! When SHE wanted to do it, CC went down. And now the day I had the grand opening, CC went down again. Does CC just not like golf or somethin’??

Well, CC actin’ up yesterday mornin’ gave us more time to spend on the links, and we thank Ana & Haley & their Angels for hostin’ board games day in the Great Hall, and Chef Engine for the great grubs. Some of which included actual grubs, mol. The latest entries in the Beer Can Regatta are Q. Kelsee and the Hockeytown Cats, and Q. Talley & her family are gonna build a boat too. Theirs will be the one made outta soda cans. The Regatta sails next weekend, I’ll keep ya posted.

Now … do I dare ramp up the Mallow-ness to almost full power without blowin’ CC’s circuits again? I hope so, because today I wanna introduce you to another special part of my CC world, Angel Q. Gracie’s special Caribbean retreat of Pinto Island.

Some of you need no introduction, Queen Gracie reigned from Pinto Island back in July of 2012 & some of us loved it so much we decided to become semi-purrmanent residents. I built myself a humble beach hut and to my amazement, around it has sprung up over the years the beach hut community of Mallowwood (yep, actually I DO name everything after myself, just call me the Donald Trump of CC!). A. Q. Gracie even honoured me with the title Mayor Mallow of Mallowwood, and before I crossed the Bridge Prince OJ built me a rockin’ tree house overlookin’ the entire island. This is where he popped the question on what turned out to be the night before I crossed (sniff). This awesome treehouse is also where we stay while on Pinto Island and the special Moon Flag of Mallowwood flies from the balcony whenever Mayor Mallow is in residence.

A long-standin’ tradition on Pinto Island is the Full Moon Pawty, and it just so happens that the full moon is tomorrow and that’s why we’re here! Guest Chefs Angels Elmie & Pouncer have been cookin’ up a storm in preparation for our arrival so let’s get settled in. ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

The traffic in & out of the beer can shed has been brisk, with kitties cartin’ away cans (not in those shopping carts we already took back to the supermarket, I hope!), choosin’ up teams and sketchin’ out carefully guarded plans for their beer can vessels. So far my signup sheet has A. Easy & the V.I. Kitties, Spanky Jack, A. Misty & her sisters … Steve is in as long as no one makes him be the rudder like last time (snicker), my bro-in-law A. Shai’s family are in and he & Evie are gonna pilot their special love boat. Dayzee’s family are gonna keep her busy so she don’t even think about runnin’ off and explorin’ again. Good thinkin’!

Mimi says that her “Queen Mimi” is as shipshape as it ever was (infer from that what you will), so she’s gonna head for her Extreme Adventure golf course with her catty J.C., who is feelin’ better and eager to carry some golf clubs around. The course is busy today too, with kitties tryin’ to master that tricky last hole. Medics are standin’ by!

For those who wanna take a break from beer can construction or would just like to stick to indoor activities, you’re in luck. Ana, Haley and all their Angels are gonna host a games day for us in the Great Hall! They’ve brought all our favourites: Mousetrap, Twister, Catopoly, Go Fish, you name it. Bring your own favourites along too.

I’m gonna be a bit later gettin’ around to your pages today, the blogger is abandoning her duty this mornin’ to go to a class on home renos, and she has a coupla other places to stop too. So make yourselves at home and Chef Engine is still here with her culinary creations.

Apologies for wreckin’ CC yesterday, I guess so much Mallowness just blew their circuits! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ
