Let’s revisit an old post… shall we?

I guess you’ve noticed I lost interest in American Idol several weeks back. Oh, I do admit to recording it weekly, but some weeks, I just couldn’t be bothered to watch it at all. I didn’t care which David won, but I think the right one actually was declared the winner since he took risks week after week and was good. David Archuleta is a talented kid, but I only see him doing ballads. David Cook seems to have the total package, only time will tell!

Remember Taylor Hicks? Nothing much happening for him. Reuben Studdard hadn’t been seen until last night. Fantasia has had some success, but that screaming, booty-shaking performance from last week was too wild even for me and I will tell you I like many genres of music except for rap.

Oh well, until next season where I hope I’m inspired to stay hooked all the way to the very end!

Where I used to crank out three or more images a week at my online playground, I’ve only managed a few this past month and I’ve even missed playing at all a couple of weeks. I miss my creativity being in full gear, but I have certainly enjoyed the gorgeous spring weather.

The usual rules applied in these challenges. The objects must be recognizable in the finished images.

Here’s another sweet kitten and a very beautifully colored one. This is the last of the five babies and I would dearly love for Lynne and her boys to adopt more than one of these cuties! ;)

I do have sad news to report. Muffin, the mama cat, has disappeared. She’s been gone almost a week and was thought to have already come back in heat. I had no idea they could or would come back in this quickly. Her kittens were only seven weeks old at the time when the husband’s brother saw a male out there with her. I’m hoping beyond hope she comes home, but I am very concerned with the amount of time that has passed. I also feel guilty cause I didn’t have her spayed after the first litter. The plus is I do have these five kittens to love and play with, but I promise you I would be very happy to drive out tomorrow (or anytime) and find Miss Muffin waiting on the porch.

He’s not the best looking in the face, but this black and white kitty is the sweetest of the bunch. One more to post after this one.

Yet another litter mate and this one looks like he will keep the blue eyes inherited from his mom. His ears and tail are striped yellow although you can’t tell in this picture. A good looking fellow for sure!

The yellow kitten of Muffin’s from her March 15, 2008, litter. The runt is in the previous post and this guy will make two of her right now. He’s very laid back and needless to say, a fuzzy cutie… want him?
