Foolish and Fluffy

This post is nothing fancy. WP is in...er...Washington, D.C. And no, the purpose of his trip is not political, at least not in regard to the government. With lots of things hanging around waiting to get done, I sit here making up pastimes that are way more fun than putting ornaments away, doing laundry, sweeping the front hall...

This is how I avoid housework. Finding paintings of fluffy kittens and pudgy puppies. I'm feeling random - it could be anything. Here we go!

Oh, wait. A note to Dianne:  you know, luv, it's not too early to expose Hope to art. Just have her drool on her favorite, k?  ;-)


(I did promise fluffiness)

  1. love your choices as usual,
    Aloha, Friend!

    Comfort Spiral

  2. All cool. Loved Felix Juggling, but that Steinlen stole the show! :)

  3. hiya. i am in love with the 1st one. hope you are all doing great!

  4. Cloudia: I could use Aloha weather right now! It's not too cold here but dreary and damp and, of course, there will be more snow on the way to remind us it's still winter.

    CR: I was reading some blog where the author asked why Felix the Cat always has this foolish grin on his. Duh. He's having fun juggling rats and getting into various other forms of mischief, as cats do!

    Sherry: Hi! I'm glad you came by. Will be over to your blog to catch up soon. We're all well, just sick of winter and the CA faction of our family are all tired of rain.

    All the love,

  5. I love the Steinleon. The look on the cat's face is priceless!

  6. I love Felix. They just don't make cartoons like they used to, do they?
    My mnotorcycle is a Triumph, and the model is a Tiger. I like how that Tiger, by Spencer Hodge, looks ferocious. I should have an artist paint some sort of rendition of a tiger on my bike. I thought of the Japanese baseball team logo for the Hanshin Tigers.
    My 5 year old Grand daughter holds our cat like that one in the painting by Steinlen. The cat tolerates better than anything!


  7. Ha! you made me laugh
    and you know me so well
    I have a box of "thingies" from museum trips - little postcards of great paintings, programs, stuff like that
    I take it out and explore it with Hope
    she's very grown up about it
    hardly drools
    she loves to pat the paintings
    they're gonna love us at the MET ;)

  8. What?? I forgot the pudgy puppies! I need to lay off that stuff. ;-)

    Spado: :-)

    Jams: I thought that was priceless too.

    Di: I can just you and Hope at the Met...be sure to invite me; I wanna be an autie! :-) Love ya!

  9. I love Felix too. Herriman was a genius.

  10. bay bee, adult, oldster

    I love Felix juggling the mouses picture.

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
