Topsy Turvy Sucks

OK, so we carefully read and followed the instructions
inside the box and both plants have died already.

So we will try again, using only one plant this time

This was my pretty trumpet plant, it did
not recover from Ike.

We are going to use that little space to kill grow
some yummy cucumbers.

Weekend Cat Blogging: Charlie

Ever since Charlie caught his first real live mouse last week
he continues to stalk the kitchen

The dishes are out because I put couple of traps in there

And still he waits.....

Sunday's Carnival of the Cats will
be hosted this week by CeCe, Meowza and the
gang at Mind of Mog

See you there!

Weekend Cat Blogging: Sleeping Weather

It's windy and rainy this morning on the Texas Coast.
Which means it's a great day to
do what cats to best.....

By the way, Charlie got a mouse yesterday.
It was quite the event!

Sunday's Carnival of the Cats will
be hosted this week by those feisty felines at
When Cats Attack
See you there!

Topsy Turvy is UP

The full page of instructions inside the box
were a little more complicated
than the 3 steps listed outside the box,
but we have it up just the same.

Now I am just waiting for the big juicy tomatoes to start
popping out all over the place
just like they do on the
Topsy Turvy infomercial.

We could get "up to 30 pounds"

Well, I don't know about that
but they sure have done a job on the
new kitty condo

Sawyer has boarded the

and don't miss Sunday's
Carnival of the Cats hosted this week at

My GPS is dead.

Shopping: Topsy Turvy

I'm such a sucker for As Seen On TV stuff.
We'll have to see how this one goes!
They are $9.88 at Walmart.

Should be fun!

After Ike: Kemah Boardwalk

The Kemah Boardwalk is really coming along.

The train is up and running, but we noticed
they have changed the path up a little.
Here it is passing by the new improved Landrys

Cadillac Bar after Ike

Cadillac looking like new again

The hotel still looks a little beat up, and the play ground
is completely gone...... but the
fountain is all good.

The Beast is in full operation

New ride called "The Drop Zone"
No thanks

The new carousel is a double-decker
Very pretty!

There are some changes, but all in all
It is looking really good at the Boardwalk.

Even though they are charging 6 bucks to park now.

They had a petting zoo this weekend

Feeding a Llama and a goat
AND balancing a Bud Light.
Pretty good...huh?

There Really is a Great Pumpkin!

How do I know?
Because I'm driving it.

The Mustang has been moved to intensive care so I
am driving this Ford Edge
until she is released from the car hospital.

Actually, it's been kind of fun to drive
and I have not misplaced this car
in a parking lot even once!

Not yet, anyway.
