True Colour Thursday

Well its Red, White and Blue day, I really didn't think we would have much around but once we started looking there was quite a choice. If you want to play along go over to see Blue and let her know.

Part of a Mural at Sheffield,
Mums has a group that makes embellished hearts then swaps them with other people around the world these have come from USA (2), England, Denmark, Italy, Australia.
One of the ways to gets to the mainland. Ailsa hates these flying things as she hads a nasty times with one, Is never been on one buts she says they make a horrid noise and sometimes they lose you.

Other way buts takes longer ands then you can gets seasick, don't thinks I like the idea ofs that so will just stays at home.

Mums Mouse that sits on a shelf.
Skin Bro wraped in his donna cover.
Ailsa with My blue teddy, her red stuffie and Mums white cat bear.
Even the post box was helping, Whens we got the post today all it had was rubbish buts just as Mums handed it to me she relised it was useful, she had to give me a treat before I would give it back.
And last but not least but only because Blue mentiond it, The PLate, its white and we still have some chillies left, it took her a while and a lot of mumbling to gets the Blue
Next week we get to pick our favorite colour, now is that my favourite or ailsas favourit or Mums. Hmmmmmmm it will be interestin.

Tagged by Maggie and Mitch

Maggie and Mitch tagged us, we have to find a photo we havn't posted before and tell the story behind it. Well we havnt many unless mums does some scanning of old ones but we do have one of us when we weres young in "Tara's Garden" Tara was one of mums and Dads furkids that went to rainbow to young but did so much in the few years she was here, the garden is in her memory and is were the BBQ is so its a snack place as well. It was taken a few years ago befores we grew grey and as my lipstick was showing couldnt be used, not a good look. Buts mums learned to use the touch up brush.

The rules are that we tag 5 others to play this game. We tag Brutus, Liffey, Nala, Charlie, Agatha and Archie

True Colour Thursday (emerald)

Every week we have a teddy bear buts Mum dont have a emerald one so thats means I dont have one either so we hads to have one of mums dolls, I donts like dolls so its gots dust on its as its never gets moved, at least I plays with my toys and moves them around Mums.
We couldnt all my green toys so after lookings for thems I fell asleeps with balley thens mums found Froggy, it crokes like a real one.
I knows its a yellow flower and not quite open yet but its still winter ans we were so exited to see it, the leaves are emerald.
The view from our back veranda, when the trees start turning yellow from the wattle blossons we'll know Springs on its way.
Outside our back door, its all very emerald green including the moss that grows everywere
No green fruit and since Mums rescued this plate from the opp shop bag because we never used it and have used it every week since doing True Colour Thursday so we had to find something to put on it.
If you want to play along go over to Blues Blog and let her know. Next week its Red, White and Blue. I'm eyeing my toy basket now.

Wordless Wednesday (5)

Cousin Ronan

Aprox 1995 to 22 July 2009

Ronan belonged to our Skin Bro. She moved in with him because her family couldn't keep her anymore. Skin Bro had just left home and was for the first time in his life on his own in his own flat. Ronan has been with him ever since in all the ups and downs of life. she didn't mind car travel and with her fur sis who moved in with them a few years later (Burtys Mums) used to came to visit sometimes and stayed with us when Skin Bro went on holidays. But she was finding it hard to breath and last week X-rays showed what was probably lung cancer, today she left for Rainbow bridge.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigour. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. There bright eyes are intent. The eager body quivers. Suddenly they begin to run from the group, flying over the green grass, there legs carrying them faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

True Colours Thursday, Peach

Peach teddy, think the other one is living with skin sis, give it time an this one will me MINE, I'mm acctually verys good with my stuffies, the odd eye or nose off but most times I just make them soggy.

WE scourd the whole house and garden for the colour Peach with very little luck. Mums has just said to me, "we didn't check my fabric" well, to bad if she thinks I'm going off with the flashy thing when its very near time for beds shes wrong, we has so little luck finding peach that we finished of the chalange tonight with the purple sky. You will note the rose. Its winter, we dont have any, I like to give them a nibble so when I saw it I just had to have a taste, SHe Twicked ME, it was pawtend, now she hates pawtend flowers so whats she doing twicking me. The spikes are real as to the flower Ailsa and I pull its to bits so then she had to puts it together again for the chalange befores she diped it into food colouring to make it pink just to show shes cheating to. We hads no poppies either but it is in a bed of barly, ok so its in a bail buts its just said bed, an it didnt say anything bout the swan having to be in water which is just as well as its on a wooden base. Hmmm, one oter thing, the flower in the grass, it was standing nice and upright, buts we took ages finding a flower that looked likes it was in grass, we walked the padocks an all around the garden so by the times we founds it I was knackered so as mums got the flashy thing outs I, well I, just layed downs, and um, did a roll, wells I was exited wes had found one, i really didnt mean to squash it. Mums proped its up with a bit of dirt whiles mumbling about Is gots 14 acres to lay down in whys I pick thats spot. Sheshs, hows thats for gratitude, I helped founds it in the first place.

Next weeks colour is emerald, Now Im sure that will be easier. I'll just go surch for froggy. an if you want to join in the fun of True Colours Thursday go an visit Blue

The True Colours Thursday POEM CHALLENGE

'The Colours' by Christina Rossetti [1830-1894]

"What is PINK? a rose is pink,
By a fountain's brink.
What is RED? a poppy's red,
In its barley bed.
What is BLUE? the sky is blue,
Where the clouds float thro'.
What is WHITE? a swan is white,
Sailing in the light.
What is YELLOW? pears are yellow,
Rich and ripe and mellow.
What is GREEN? the grass is green,
With small flowers between.
What is VIOLET? clouds are violet,
In the summer twilight.
What is ORANGE? Why, an orange,
Just an Orange!"
