Life is Grand Award
We have been awarded the Life Is Grand Award by Camie's Kitties.
Thank you very much. The rules are that we now need to tell you 5 reasons why we think life is grand and then pass it on to 5 more blogs.
1. We get to go out in the fields and hunt mousies.
2. We can sit in the window when it rains and watch all the fev-vers eating the bird seed.
3. Our Beans Zoom Groom us about 100 times a day if we get up on our cat tree. (Mum sez it seems like 100 times)
4. We are allowed out in the garden for as long as we like. Mum calls us in at 1 am when she goes to bed.
5. Flynn: Mum lets me sleep under the quilt with her.
Eric: Dad lets me sleep on his head. Well he doesn't complain too much.

Fifth Photo and an Award
Open your file folders (pictures),
click on the fifth folder,
and then the fifth photo,
Post the photo to your blog and describe it.
Then tag 5 other bloggers.
This photo is of our Beans in front of The Vatican. They went there on a Mediterranean cruise in 2006. It was not long after mum had broken her leg and she was on crutches. She didn't want them in the photo, so she was leaning against dad and he was trying to hide them behind his back. You can see part of one behind his leg.
We tag : Sunny, Derby, Mickey, Princess and Pierro, and Jeter Harris.
Also thanks to Patches and Nemo for giving us the Proximidade award.

We have had this award before and passed it on to others. If you don't already have this award and you visit us regularly, please take it for yourself.
Several of you asked about the flowers yesterday. Yes they are crocuses. Even though we have had the coldest winter for twenty years, (we think that is right, we can't remember for sure) the Spring bulbs have been coming up early. The crocuses have been up for over a week and the snowdrops came up in the middle of January. Dad even saw primroses before Christmas.

......and chew on it.
Eric: Oh no! She's got the flashy box again. I've got to move fast before she takes my photo.
Flynn: Huh! Where did Eric go?
Oh there he goes walking along the edge of the field.
You can see the track we have made where we always walk in the same place.
Flynn: Hello! Who's been here digging out the hedge? It's probably Mr. Badger or Mr. Fox.
I'll just have a quick look over the hedge and see if I can see who did it.
Flynn: Nope, couldn't see any one. Come on Eric, let's go back and rest on the field roller.
This is a nice sunny spot, what do you think Eric?
Eric: Yup, I could sit here all day and soak up the sunbeams if it wasn't so cold.
Flynn: Well you can stay there if you want to. I'm heading for home to see what's to eat.
It might have been sunny, but it was very cold and we had to floof our furrs to keep warm.

See my Back.
Uh-oh, there she is and I just know she has got that darned flashy box with her.
She knows how to spoil my walk. I will just turn my back on her.
You still there? Take that flashy thing away will you.
See my back? Well, that is what I think of you and your camera mum.
Flynn: Don't worry mum, I will face the camera for you, because I am your handsome little man.

Easy on Sunday
We need to take it easy today because we had to do a lot of catch up on Saturday evening. We lost our AOL connection midday on Thursday and it meant we couldn't even post our Valentine's cards or enter the contests in time. Luckily we had scheduled our Friday Flashback post. All we could get from AOL was a pre-recorded message that they were aware of the problem and working on it. At least we are back again now two days later .
