Random 5 Friday

Wow it's Friday (finally)!  - Time to link up with Nancy (A Rural Journal) for Random 5 Friday.

Click to enlarge pictures.

1.  I've taken a bit of a break this week from blogging (anyone notice?)  Here's the reason why...

Yep,  never could pass up any of his Fantasy Novel's. - Notice I was "photo bombed" here!  Super Good read and it felt good to just sit and relax while reading this book.
2.  It's still HOT here!  Another 100+ day in the forecast for today. and frankly I'm getting tired of the excessive heat.  I haven't wanted to be outside much at all so there has been very little picture taking this week as well.

3. Was anyone else a bit disappointed that the "Royal Baby" was a boy?  Don't get me wrong,  I love babies (even boy babies) but I was so hoping the new little royal baby would be a girl.  Princesses get to wear way cuter clothes!  Plus come original is the name,  George.  Why couldn't they pick out a cooler name like...oh say,  Lance, Chandler, Buckley, Irving, Marvin....anything but George.  I know protocol is the mandate for them but geez...just once you think they could break free from that.

4.  Stupid make that Ignorant people make me so MAD!!!  This week our wonderful neighbor (the owners of Fluffy the cat) decided they didn't want her anymore.  One of their kids came to tell me on Saturday that her dad took Fluffy downtown and "dumped" her off.  Yes,  just dumped her.  Mind you we offered to have her fixed and pay for it several times but instead he decides that it would be the best thing just to get rid of her.  I was furious and wanted to turn him in and just so worried about what Fluffy had to be going through.  She was a very sweet cat and deserved far better then to be treated like garbage. 
I hope the same fate doesn't await her sweet little kittens, which they still have.  (Top Row:  Apple Pie & Witch, Bottom Row:  Ghost & Fred - Their names for them).

5:  Kind People still exist.  -  Tuesday hubby told me about an add in the paper for a lost cat that had been found on Sunday.  I decided to call the people and see if it was Fluffy.  -  After talking with the woman for a few minutes and explaining the situation and sending her pictures that I've taken of Fluffy I am happy to report that she found her downtown (on a busy street) scared to death and took her home.  When she heard what had happened she was as horrified as I was.  Here's the good news...She's decided to keep Fluffy and from her last email to me she said Fluffy is eating and drinking well, getting along with her other cat and doing just fine.  I will miss seeing Fluffy over at our house as she came morning & night to be fed and petted but I will sleep better knowing that she now has a loving home and will be well taken care of.

  1. Oh, my ... people like your neighbor need to be thrown in a dark room and the key thrown away. If they treat a poor cat like that, how do they treat people. UGH So glad to hear Fluffy was found and has a good home now. Good luck to her kittens.

  2. Beautiful photo! I love the way that one petal is lapped over.

    That is HORRIBLE what was done to Fluffy. It makes my blood boil over the way people treat animals. Thank goodness Fluffy had a kind neighbor like you to give her some love. And thank goodness someone good found Fluffy. I hope she has a safe forever home now.

    We have two cats (and two cats who passed away). They are the sunlight in my life.

  3. So glad Fluffy found a new, loving home. Broke my heart to hear they just dumped her!
    George - not a fan either. I felt his name should be Xavier!
    Try & stay cool - we are, they are predicting temps in the upper 60s & lower 70s for the weekend here in Michigan! Almost too cold for summer around here!

  4. I'm so glad your 'Fluffy' story had a happy ending! And, yes ... I was disappointed that the Royal heir to the throne was a boy. I wanted history to be made.

  5. I'm so glad there was a happy ending to Fluffy's story! People like that just make me furious!! Grrrr...
    Glad you got some time to read a good book. Sounds like the perfect thing to do while it's so hot outside. :)

  7. I was disappointed in the name George too. Ick. I was sort of hoping for Arthur, though that's old fashioned too. (I love the legend of King Arthur and his Guinevere.) :)

    I'm glad Fluffy has found a good home. Yep. People like her former owners should be tarred and feathered.. or something. Put in the stocks in shame.

  8. What a wonderful ending to a sad story!!! Love that someone took Fluffy in that will love and take care of her...and that gives me hope for humanity. I still believe for every evil deed, there are more good deeds done...they just aren't televised! And good for you for following up on the ad and making sure that Fluffy was taken care of. You're a pretty good egg yourself, aren't you? :)_

  9. I have noticed..Ida! And yes people can be ever so without heart..grrr!

  10. I'm so glad you looked out for Fluffy, and had good news to share. She is so pretty!

  11. I'm so glad Fluffy has a new home thanks to you Ida! Bless your heart.
