As I only have access to photos of my mom that are already on the computer, I was unable to come up with anything too, too embarrassing. In this photo, however, she is wearing glasses as big as windshields. It was taken in the late 70s. She is holding Jelly Bean, a wild baby bunny she and Dad Tom raised after its mommy was hit by a car and killed. When he was old enough to fend for him/herself, they let him go and he ate his way down the hill behind their house, which was covered in vegetation.

Sorry Mom. I love you, Cooper Murphy

Our Embarrassing Photos

This day had to come, I guess, Miss Fitz
I suppose Timmy I suppose. How about I go furst
No argument from me!

That Dad took this picture of my face had me hopping mad. I mean really Dad! I am your little girl and not

I wondered where Blue String went after cat-ching my claw on the cat pad. Very normal fur a cat

You asked for it! (Embarrassing Photos Day...My Mom)

I am embarrassed to say this is my Mom. This is how she dressed for a Detroit Lions game a few years ago. Trust me, this is NOT an isolated occurrence!!!!! I think she is certifiable, but don't tell her I said that, I need to eat! Oh wait! You can tell her, Dad will feed me!



Embarrass The Folks Day

YAY!   Turn the tables on the folks embarrassing photo to share seems to be the only fair thing considering our humans post photos of us in embarrassing photos ALL THE TIME - am I right gang?  
YES!   We agree - turnabout is fair play!!!!!
OK then - my embarrassing photo is of my Mom.   My Mom as a baby.   And something she doesn't talk about is connected with this photo and that's the embarrassing part.  
See when my Mom was a baby, my Grandmom was out with Mom in her stroller and a photographer asked if my Mom would like to have my Mom be a model for the Sears catalog baby section!   Only hangup was she would have to take the train from where they lived in Levittown, New York into NYC every time Mom was needed.....well my Grandmom took my Mom in ONCE - and while Mom could have had the job - this was her "official photo" - My Grandmom didn't want to have to ride the train all the time with a BABY.   HARUMPH!   That was her short modeling career - very short - well, actually non-existent!    So forgive me Mom but I'm showing everyone your OFFICIAL MODELING PORTRAIT!
What's that in her hand?  A baby brush......tee hee
OK - enough giggling - can't wait to see what everyone else's embarrassing photos are!!!!  
I love ya Mom!!!!
Angel Sammy
p.s.  Today is my MODEL MOM's birthday......Happy Birthday Mom!!

Graphic by Ann at Zoolatry

Party hosted by Sammy, Gracie, & Raz



Me and my merry band of pirates will be sailin' the seven seas today, looking for ships to plunder and pillage to add to my stash of gold and jewels in the hold of my pirate ship!

Belly up to the bar

Food is ready for ye.
If you don't see something you want please keep it to yourself.

Pirate cake for what is left of ye sweet teeth.  
Then ye be safe!


I am so excited to celebrate my very first Meowin' Like a Pirate day. I even have a pirate name. Who knew I'd be having so much fun after getting adopted. My pirate name is Nick “Captain Of Rats” Scar, “The Scurvy Dog of Nowhere Key!” 

I hope it is okay. I brought along the Kitties Blue crew on our new ship, The Blue Fancy.

I think I'll be partaking of some of this great grub.

Ahoy, Mateys!

Pirates Day!

Happy Pirates Day everyone!!!
A favorite day of the year for me.

I will be serving drinks in the bar for ye.
Then I will head to the seas and seek finding my treasure.

Time to set sail. I have my map and my treasure is waiting for me to find.

The day has paid off. I found ye treasure.

I have plenty to share if you want you can take one item from me treasure chest.
Don't be greedy because I be watching ye.

Let's Talk Like Pirates Today!


Aye!  I'm Captain Sam and me and my loyal crew of one (!), Terrible Ted the Pirate are ready to set sail for a day of plundering, pillaging, and probably a lot of fun........
Captain Sam can I drive the pirate ship once - just once - pretty pleeeeeze?

Terrible Ted you do not "DRIVE" a pirate ship, you steer it into other ships and plunder their BOOTY!!!!
Now, where is the Ship's Cook - time for some food for our guests!!
Here's ye grub Captain!

AND some sweets for the sweet as well as PIRATE GROG!

After a day of being a pirate, Terrible Ted and I will be headin' below on our ship and taking a rest before resuming our plundering and pillaging!
