MeOW C’mon Raena, today’s a very special Blest Sunday and we’re already runnin’ really late.
MeOW C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday, and we have lots of things to meow ‘bout today. As you know, today is mommy’s birthday and Memorial day weekend. This month has just flown by.
It sure has sissy. How old do ya’ think mommy is? Do ya’ reckon she’ll tell us this year?
All me knows Raena is that she’s old, as in wrinkles and gray hair and creakin’ bones old. Me’s not sure even she ‘members how old she is Raena. Ya’ know, they say the memory’s the furst thing to go. MOL
Oh sissy, I’s don’t think mommy would find that so funny. But, I’s do agree that mommy’s memory ain’t what it used to be. Anyways, I’s don’t really care how old she is, I’s just glad she’s our mommy. I’s do luvs her whole bunches. You know she always puts us furst. Y, she got some green papers fur her birthday and ended up spendin’ most of ‘em on us. Seems that Drs. Foster and Smith place had our Primal Freeze Dried Rabbit noms on sale fur half purrice. We don’t think we’ve ever seen ‘em that cheap anywhere. So, mommy used her special money to get us a few bags.
Yep Raena, we do have a good mommy, that’s fur sure. We do wanna say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Vonda, awnty Susan, awnty Anonymous, and awnty Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton fur mommy’s birthday money. Mommy cried a lot of happy tears this past week.
She did sissy. And then she cried some more when she got the box from my kitty godmommy awnty Ellen. Mommy luvs exotic house plants. Rumor is that she used to have a whole house full. Anyways, one of her favorite plants is the maranta, better known as the purrayer plant cuz it closes it’s leaves at night to resemble praying hands. When mommy opened up the box from awnty Ellen, she saw the purrettiest purrple leaves pawppin’ out all over the place. ‘Course we had to check it out too. We could smell somethin’ emanatin’ from inside that box that really caught our attention. Sure nuff, awnty Ellen hadn’t furgotten ‘bout us. We got one of those furtastic pieces of silvervine toast each. I’s ‘member when Sammy modeled his fur their posty. That awnty Ellen is so clever. Who would’a thought ‘bout makin’ silvervine toast?
Me sure did enjoy that toasty Raena. You’re right ‘bout awnty Ellen. She is so very talented. We luv all her Made with Luv goodies. You slobbered all over your toasty and then tried to steal me’s one. Hmmmpht That wasn’t happenin’. MOL
You were s’posed to share sissy. ‘Stead, you flopped your floofy big hiney down on your toasty and hid it.
Oh divine silvervine, me luvs you.
You had your own Raena, and me didn’t want slobber all over me’s toasty piece. Fank you soooooooooooooo much fur includin’ us awnty Ellen. The silvervine toast was a big hit.
Sure nuff. Fanky fank you awnty Ellen. Sissy, can you x’plain a bit ‘bout Memorial day? Peeps keep sayin’ happy memorial day and I’s don’t know what’s so happy ‘bout it.
Yeah Raena, me doesn’t get the happy pawrt either, me thinks peeps just don’t know what else to say. Memorial day is the day set aside to pay homage to those men, women and anipals that died while serving in the military. Me knows fur sure, that we ‘member them and their families every single day. Ifin not fur them, our country and way of life wouldn’t exist. The freedoms we have, wouldn’t exist. This country is great because of those willing to fight and die to make it so. No where else in this world has the freedoms and rights that the U.S. does. And shame on those who want to tear it down. The next time you complain about the government or somebody saying/posting something you don’t like or agree with, remember, you have the right to do that because someone died to make it so.
I’s sure am fanky fankful fur all those who gave their lives so we could live in such a pawsum country sissy. I’s so fanky fankful fur their families who suffered loss, fur the children who lost mothers or fathers to wars on distant shores. Sometimes peeps furget, the soldier serving and fighting should be at the top of our purrayer list, but their family serves as well. So, to all those soldiers who never came home, we salute you and purromiss not to take the freedoms your lives bought us fur granted.
Yep Raena, we are blest to have been born in the U.S. and mommy and me join you in saluting each and every soldier. Thank you fur your service and your sacrifice. And to all those Vets and currently serving, we fank you as well. God Bless America. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives.
We’re also joinin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We are so Blest and wanna fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. We luvs you all bunches and bunches.
Me couldn’t have meowed it better Raena. C’mon, let’s go give mommy some more birthday cuddles.
Till the next time…………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Meowllo everypawdy. Me doesn’t have to tell ya’ but today is Memorial day here in da United States. As you know me stays away from pawlotics here on me’s bloggy cuz well, there’s just no way to win. You know when it comes to holidays, we always seem to say Happy, Merry or some other gleeful expression. And so today there will be lots of “happy Memorial day” sayings. But me doesn’t exactly know what’s so happy about a day dat we remember those who have served and died or were irrepurrably injured fighting for the freedoms we live under. Especially considering da state of our current affairs.
Now don’t get me wrong, me’s grateful to have been born in America and have those freedoms, and we are soooooooo grateful fur all those who serve and have served to keep us free and safe. Me is grateful to their families who while not serving abroad, served just da same. Me is thankful fur every fallen soldier and he/she is a hero in mes book. Me is thankful to all those who came back to their families and country. And me’s ashamed of how our country has treated some of those soldiers. Whether you agree with the war or not, those soldiers are following orders. Those soldiers are keeping you and me safe. Trust me, they would rather be back home safe and sound in their own beds with their own families. So shame on us fur not always supporting them da way we should. And shame on us fur allowing our government to take away some of da very freedoms dat were bought with da blood and lives of those soldiers.
Dat’s right, Freedom isn’t Free. While our government scurries about tryin’ to re-write history and take away our right to bear arms, or censor our speech, or the many other rights they think allow us to much choice, men and women in da military are still dying to purrtect those rights. Many of those same soldiers serve in areas where they’re not allowed to purractice da same rights they’re fighting fur you and me to keep. Shame on us fur bowing down to Cult leaders who call themselves rulers and telling our soldiers they must abide da rules of da tyrannical governments we as a nation are tryin’ to overthrow.
Are we Patriotic? ABSOLUTELY YES!!! Do we luv America? ABSOLUTELY YES!!! We know we are blest to live in such a great country and we wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. This country was founded on da beliefs of da Bible and our fore fathers intended fur da people to control da government, not da other way around. God Bless America, land of da free and home of da brave. Let us never furget how this country was established and those who bled and died to ensure you could go about your days and nights safely without a care. Those who furget their past are doomed to repeat it. So today and everyday…
Me will get off me’s soapbox now and wish you a safe and blest Memorial day. And mommy and me want to say a meowsy big Thank You fur your service. We will never furget. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!
Till da next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!
