Puzzle Fun

My Prisma app has so many different styles; I just play with them almost daily.

There is something about black cats too, that make them purrfect models for my artification!

Hope you enjoy the puzzles too.

I recently discovered the Ruth Galloway series, written by Elly Griffiths, on a Facebook group.

This series, to me, is like eating potato chips; you can't have just one!

Or more like the saying, "Cats are like potato chips; you can't have just one"?

Anyhow, one aspect of this series is that Ruth loves her cats!

Ruth is an archaeologist, living in North Norfolk, U.K.

She teaches at the nearby university, and finds herself involved with the local police when a skeleton is discovered and they call upon her unique skills at identifying buried bones.

There are other fun things, like druids, saltmarshes, spectral hounds and boogey men, and some good old romps in the sack!

She pines for her cat, Flint, whenever she's away from home for more than a few days.


Cats are harmed in the first two books, and that in itself would put me off a series (and a writer) in a heartbeat!

However, the author has made it very clear that she deeply regrets writing about such cruel things, and I've encountered no more of this type of nastiness in any of the other books.

The author is a true cat-lover.

I've halfway through book #13!

I'm told there is a TV series based on these books, but I haven't seen it...yet.

The Nearby Store

 For years, we've shopped at a local pet store.

In December, 2017, the Premier Pet Supply store in Beverly Hills, Michigan, was where I spent my lunch break, and look whom I saw in the cat adoption center!

Yep, that's Manny and Chili Bruce, known as Spiderman and Bruce Wayne then.

Last weekend, I discovered that they've expanded to new location nearer to our home, and I visited right away.

What a lovely place, with the same warm and welcoming attitudes that drew me to their flagship store, where Da Boyz were waiting for us!

I am thankful for this local business, and now even more so that they are closer to our side of town.

Not that this means much to you all who live outside of Metro Detroit, yet we all have our favorite home-grown establishments that we are happy to give our hard-earned money too.

I featured this pet store chain, and purchase from it, for my own use.
I only post about items that I think you all may enjoy, and receive no financial gain for myself.

Felt Hat Day

 September 15 is Felt Hat Day!

Eastside Cats will now show off their felt hats...

Sweetie wears a bowler.
A cowboy hat for Chili Bruce.
Manny, in a dapper top hat.

Hats on cats!

It's Twozday!

Sometimes, Da Boyz travel alone.
Manny, looking down from on top of the fridge.
Chili Bruce, excited about something outside.
Manny, doing the nap curl.
Chili Bruce, going long.

 A new development:
If you look at the top photo hard enough,
you'll notice a tiny patch of fur next to Manny's nose that looks like a white beauty mark.

It's one way to tell Da Boyz apart, if you cannot flip 'em over to look at the white spot on their bellies (Manny has the big spot, CB's is small), but that wee white spot is very tiny and difficult to see!
