A Strange Funeral

We all go to funerals in our lives for our family and friends. We also hope and pray that our children don’t die before us but life doesn’t always happen that way. 

I just recently went to a funeral since my Aunt died. This funeral was like no other. The funeral was held in the  dark since there was no electric. Toward the end of the end of the funeral and before the luncheon the lights came back on. The food had to heated up elsewhere. When I asked my parents why there was no electricity? They said, the power company had scheduled a power outage during the time of the funeral. When you don’t know it’s scheduled, it is really strange and weird.

What’s the strangest funeral you’ve been to? What’s the strangest thing that has ever happened to you? Let me know.

Eileen’s Critters And My First Sunday Selfie Well Sort Of

I have a special Eileen’s Critters And Sunday Selfie this week. On June 10, 2019 we got a picture of the our first Fawn of the 2019 season. Sorry if the picture is dark but Mamma Deer isn’t brave enough yet apparently to bring her baby out in daylight. I had to share this with you. 

After a drink I think Mamma Deer is going to show her baby the ropes on how to go about posing for Sunday Selfies. For the first time I think this little Fawn did pretty good. Honestly, I think the Fawn is more interested in getting a drink. Mamma Deer is multitasking. She’s eating and posing for her Sunday Selfie and for Eileen Critters.

FIRST BABY FAWN OF 2019.

Hi everyone and welcome to CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE for another edition of Friendly Fill – Ins. Only this time Daisy Mae came to me and said she wanted to do a special Mother’s Day edition of Friendly Fill – Ins. So I have given Daisy Mae to take charge. OH I hope you like it. Just so you know this will be as much a surprise for me as it is for you.🙀🙀 

Queen Daisy Mae: MOM, MOM, MOM, MOM

Queen Mom Crystal: What is it Daisy Mae? I’m really busy right now.

Queen Daisy Mae: To busy to give me your attention?

Queen Mom Crystal: For what Queen Daisy Mae?

Queen Daisy Mae: I’m really surprised. You forgot didn’t you? You forgot about Mother’s Day and Friendly Fill – Ins didn’t you? Be honest with me.

Queen Mom Crystal: Well Queen Daisy Mae I will be honest with you. I didn’t forget about Mother’s Day. In fact I wrote a poem that will coming out on Sunday or Monday and I was going to forgo Friendly Fill – Ins this week. What do you have to say to that?

Queen Daisy Mae: MOM, MOM, MOM, MOM I just had the most wonderful idea.

Queen Mom Crystal: UUUUHHHH……… OOOOHHHHH!!!! What’s your most wonderful idea Queen Daisy Mae?

Queen Daisy Mae: Well Queen Mom Crystal in honor of Mother’s Day I thought I would do Friendly Fill – Fill Ins this week. You know answer ALL four questions. What do you say? OH please, please, please, please let me do it, let me do it(Queen Daisy Mae is jumping up and down at this point and begging).

Queen Mom Crystal: (Queen Mom Crystal is giggling by now) Well……… I don’t know. I guess it wouldn’t hurt anything and who knows if you do a good job maybe you can do it more often.

Queen Daisy Mae: And the verdict is…??

Queen Mom Crystal: Oh what the heck. Go for it Queen Daisy Mae.

Queen Daisy Mae: REALLY!!?? REALLY!!?? You mean it?? You really mean it??

Queen Mom Crystal: Yes Queen Daisy Mae I mean it. You’re in charge of doing Friendly Fill – Ins. Please don’t mess this up.

Queen Daisy Mae: OH believe me Queen Mom Crystal I won’t let you down. NO, NO, NO, NO!!

Queen Mom Crystal: I’m very proud and privileged to present Queen Daisy Mae doing Friendly Fill – Ins. So without further adieu let’s go to Friendly Fill – Ins: Mother’s Day Style with Queen Daisy Mae.

QUEEN DAISY MAE SHOWING OFF HER GREY AND WHITE BELLY. (ORIGINAL PICTURE).

1.) 2005-2006 was a very good year. This was the year I got my forever home. That’s right folks, I’m going to be the big 13 on Sept. 12.

2.) There is nothing quite like a forever and loving home.

3.) If I had a talk show, I would want to interview the Queen Mom Crystal’s favorite author Amorette Anderson and also want to interview Miss Ellen and her cats from 15 And Meowing.com. I guess I would ask her cats what’s it like to live with multiple cats and ask Miss Ellen how on earth does she manage all those cats?

4.) There is nothing I wouldn’t do for Fancy Feast. Chicken variety and it must be Classic Pate` since they discontinued my favorite, favorite kind.

So to ALL the Mother’s out there whether you have children or are the Mother of a furfriend. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO YOU ALL!! I ALSO WANT TO WISH MY MOM A SPECIAL MOTHER’S DAY WISH.

QUEEN MOM CRYSTAL MY MOTHER’S DAY GIFT TO YOU IS TO LET YOU PICK ME UP AND LOVE ME ALL YOU WANT. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY MOM!!!!

Sabi Saturday

Trying to figure something for this weeks Sabi Saturday was challenging. Then it hit me, I could do a combined photo of antique and old things. What I mean by this is several old and antique things in one photo. 

DSCN0475(4).jpg

The end table, lamp and couch are very old. Me I’m “Middle Aged” but 29+. No I’m not telling you how old I am but will just say this, if you read my birthday post last year then you got a pretty good idea already how old I am. The only thing in the picture that’s not that old is Daisy Mae who is only a kitten in this photo but is 12 going on 13. 13 not the that old for a cat but in Cat years she’s old.

VALENTINE’S DAY PET PARADE AND EARLY CATURDAY ART

While Queen Daisy Mae And I have been away from our blogs for a while since I got into what I call an accidental project(more about that later). Anyhow, I wanted to do something special for Valentine’s Day for everyone but didn’t know what to do. I talked to Queen Daisy Mae to see if she had any ideas. She did so she sent them to me while she was sleeping(not really). You see, she told me her ideas when I woke her from her nap to tell her  she had just gotten fed and it was time for her to get up and go down and get something to eat. So without further adieu, here is our valentine’s card from us. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!! This post is also doubling for an early Caturday Art. Art was done on IPiccy .

Sunday Selfie

My Sunday Selfie is of a caricature. More accurately, my caricature selfie comes from a book series I’ve read and loved. The author is Amorette Anderson. The cat in the book’s name is Turkey. Below is the selfie of Turkey in his glasses.

Helping The Hungry, The Homeless And Pets

Famine-victims-and-world-population-since-1860HungerCycle-orgmercycorps

While we celebrate Christmas and New Year this holiday season by stuffing ourselves with food and maybe even wasting some of that food you can’t eat, before taking too much food think of all the people in the world that goes hungry because they don’t have food to eat and they might be even homeless. 

When I looked at the charts I was in absolute awe. So many people in poverty and going hungry. Below are some things we all can do to help.

women_poverty3

Maybe if everyone would adopt just 1 person and send some food, a nice warm blanket to somebody who needs it you can help one person at a time. If you can get someone into a shelter for a while even better. I know there are organizations who send care packages, there are some where you adopt a platoon and of course there is Marine Toys For Tots. So once the Christmas gifts are unwrapped and the celebrating is done take some time out of your day to help the people who really need it.

poverty-2018

I’m not say quit baking but if you do bake during the Christmas and New Years Season when you bake something for your double the batch and make a batch for someone who really needs help. If you can’t cook well that’s OK because you can help out by sending care packages, helping serve food to the hungry, help out at a food pantry and etc… There are so many ways you can help. 

My post has been all about people so far but we must not forget about the animals who need a forever home, need food and water, need saving from being killed.  So if you are getting a gift for yourself this Christmas and New Years Season there is so much you need to know and do before getting that pet. What should you know? A few things you should consider before getting a pet is:

  • If you have kids do research on what breed is best for kids.
  • Consider unexpected vet bills.
  • Make sure you get pet insurance(it’s worth it).
  • Make sure you get your pet microchipped.
  • Make sure you start looking for a pet to rescue or adopt at a reputable shelter.
  • If you get a kitten, make sure they’re not flea dipped to early(always let a vet flea dip your kitten instead of a person at the shelter).

There are so many more points to research and do when you decide to get that pet it will just boggle your mind.
