Friendship never ends….

corine

Dear (furry)furriends,

Granny asked me to let you know

that she won’t be around

for a period of time…

because she just found out

that her furriend Corine

has lost her battle

against breast cancer.

Here they are together

back in 2002 on the graduation ceremony.

She was only 36 years young.

Granny and I were nominated for the Illuminating Blogger Award by Mei. Thank you Mei, we appreaciate this very much and we love your blog. You are indeed an illuminating blogger. If you are getting curious, hop over to Meiro’s blog.

I still have to find out my illumination…

I think this is illumination, what do you think?

Oh, that’s not what they mean…

Afb171

I’m sorry, but I have to give up on that one and go on to the nomination.

This is the award. Doesn’t it look fantastic?

Granny and I like that burning candle on our blog…

light bulb concept

I was hissing a few times, but the candle keeps on shining…

maybe I have to practice hissing again?…

Thanks again my friend 🙂

Angels place

I love the sun. When the sun is shining I lay down myself for hours in the garden.

When Granny comes home from shopping, I make rolling overs’ from one side to the other and meow of joy. I like to make my Granny happy 🙂

I hear grandpa coming home from work, even if he’s not  nearby the house yet . I jump out of bed and wait for him on the stairs, so Granny knows too that he’s on his way… Oh, you know it also… sorry, Granny, I forgot you’re a cat too 😉

Binky babysitterNow,  that was easy. What’s next?

Right.. the nomination for this special candle award. In the first place I would say, for all my friends, but I have to do a selection and believe me, that’s very difficult, because we like all of the blogs we follow, but we have some new friends, who we like to introduce if you don’t know me/them by now.

Here we go:

Red the Terrier

Athina

Sea Play Photography

Giselzitrone

Traveling cats

Granny, I feel an irrisistible urge to nominate all my friends…

yes.. are you sure…ok, let’s do it:

and all my friends who haven’t received this illuminating Award. So lovely friends, don’t forget to check out my foot… you remember my foot, don’t you.. and the cat on the right side of my blog, with your names on it. Don’t be shy, we love to share 🙂

Marilyn Monroe2

Ok, Granny, what’s next on the agenda?

No, I haven’t use your lipstick…

no, this photo isn’t photoshopped nor are my lips botoxed..

I’m just a natural girl 🙂

Come on, let’s go on with this blog…

Granny’s new friends

Binky keukenGranny, what are you doing with all the bread?

CAM00214

Oh, you’re gonna feed the geese and duckies …and chicken..

oh, no chicks..

waterhens and coots..

Binky keuken

Granny, yesterday there were two waterhens on the shed, they were hungry too, but when I wanted to give them food, they flew away.

Binky

No, granny, I don’t tell fibs..

Why I’m licking my mouth?

Binky aanrecht

No, not because I’m thinking of the waterhens, but…

Binky keuken

because I finished eating the crumbs you left me, that’s all.

Binky aanrecht

Ok, I get off the sink.

Binky keuken

What, can’t I come to feed the duckies and geese? Why not?…

Of cause they’ll come even if I’m around, they won’t bite me…

Binky keuken

are you sure they’re bigger then me.it’s to cold for me outside..

well, in that case, I’ll wait for you at home and tell my (furry)friends about our new feathered friends.

This is the place my granny goes almost daily lately to bring our feathered friends something to eat.

They’re starving since winter  did appear.

When they see her coming in the far distance, they begin to  croak and run towards her…(this picture was made while biking, so it’s not very sharp)

eenden en ganzen

they already know it’s granny…

eenden en gans

and they’re sitting on her feet, between her legs and she’s talking with them…

eendjes

she has to, because otherwise they jump on each other to get some food…

ganzen

but she tells them that she has enough for all of them…

eenden en ganzen

and they seem to understand,

eenden en ganzen

because they’re waiting patiently…

eenden en ganzen

and when they’re not, she tells them to take it easy and guess what… they’re all standing still. Amazing, isn’t it 🙂

gans en eenden

And this one is a special one. He’s following granny the whole time, untill she leaves and is trying to get her attention and when he doesn’t get it, he is picking on her. She thinks he’s a beauty with expressive blue eyes….

Binky

I think he’s the golden goose, I mean, the goose with the golden eggs..

Granny, maybe he is a she…

No, I’m not jealous… not at all…

ganzen en eenden

When the food is finish, granny tells the feathered friends that she’ll be back and tells them that they have to go inside of the water now, because otherwise they’ll be freezing…

and then they go, running or flying into the water and she wents home…

Binky

where I am waiting for her under the table almost frozen to death

Oh, not outside.. I mean..

Binky slapen

…inside on the window-still and acting as I was asleep all the time…

Binky

Well, I’m a little sleepy still now, but I  just want to say one thing more.

If it’s freezing outside, our feathered friends don’t have anything to eat. Besides they’re feeling cold, they’re starving. It’s necessary to feed them supplementary. They’ll be thankful at you and you make new friends and in time I take the eggs 😉

Help is needed.. don’t stay inside… like me...

Binky schoot

Granny, I need some cuddling now…purrrrrrr…

and purrr to grandpa for making the photo’s 🙂

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all my (Furry)friends!

Thank you for walking with us in 2012,

hope you also will be with us right through 2013.

We wish you a peaceful, enlightened, healthy and happy New Year…

make it your best year ever 🙂
