WonderBoy Wednesday!

: Neigh everyone, Vidock here! Sorry about shirking my responsibilities on Manly Monday. I had a terrible attack of the "Hungrumblies" and simply had to stick my nose in the hay bale! Anyway, #1 came to see me again yesterday, and I told her I wanted to make it up to you and was on top form for a photo shoot!

I'm ready. #1!

OK, here is a full view of my "WonderBoy" self...

Actually, I'm getting my thick winter coat so I am pretty Teddy-Bearish at the moment, you know!

OK, a little movement? How about a canter?

And a little "horsing around" with my big brother Tom?

Followed by syncrhronised ogling of the girls as they went past out to their pasture?

So, am I forgiven?

Tama's Terrific Tuesday!

Why Terrific, do you ask? Well, #1 is finally on the mend and has promised us that she has no travel plans for the moment! We are all happy to be together and looking forward to December and all the associated festivities, starting with my son Bibi's birthday this coming Sunday!

So, here I am in #1's bathroom. ..

There is a most excellent window in this bathroom from which I can have a great view of the field where the donkeys are. #1 raises the blinds just for me, her precious little Queen!

As it gets colder, I also enjoy relaxing on the radiator in the kitchen. It is by a window and next to the French doors (hah! isn't every door French around here?) out to the terrace, so also has great views. Unlike many of my friends, I actually like having my picture taken and enjoy posing for #1!

As it is Toesday, I will even throw in a toe or two...

Before I leave you, I have one more fun photo to share with you: It's an aerial shot showing me in one of the sky hammocks and my sister Sei-Chan on her Zabuton in the tatami space!

Here's hoping your Tuesday is terrific too!

Manly Monday

: #1 came to visit yesterday and asked if I would kick off the Manly Monday feature but, you see, I am very busy...

So, I asked my little brother Tom if he would take over from me, and he said yes!

Tom: Here is a soulful Tommy picture that #1 took the other day. What do you think?

And more of a profile shot?

I have to tell, you.. soulful is not easy with that little Genji around...

Just look at this guy! He has no shame!

As for The Beebs, his sphere of interest this morning was how quickly the milk was going to hit #1's cereals!

Wishing you an excellent week!

Snuggles on Sunday - Sort of....

We are still not up to speed on the photo-taking, so this post is going to be a mixed bag of what #1 did manage to grab this past week...

I, being a clever girl, started my snuggling with Tommy early in the week:

I also squatted for a while on #1's leg whilst she was sitting at her desk!

There was no further snuggling between the boys this week, but they did hang out together quite companionably...

Genji rather likes the "in your face" approach when snuggling with #1...

And YES, he has been snuggling with Tommy!

We will have to attribute the lack of a picture of Sei-Chan snuggling with Tommy to how poorly #1 was feeling. Snuggle she did. Believe me!

Sentimental SEIturday

Well, we finally packed #1 off to the doctor yesterday evening, and it turned out to be pretty much what she thought: a bad sinus infection. So, she is on heavy-duty antibiotics and cortisone and should feel better soon. She would like to say a big thanks for all your good wishes!

Needless to say, no photos have been taken, so I decided to take you on a bit of a sentimental journey through the first few months of my life instead.

Do any of you remember when they still thought I was a boy and I was ready to take over the world?

(I was 3 weeks old at the time...)

With my Mummy, Viña del Mar, and a toy at 5 weeks:

With my Mummy again at 6 and a half weeks:

(yes, I was an only kitten!)

Watch out, world! Sei-Chan is coming!

(at 2 months)

Hanging with #1 at 10 weeks:

With my sweet sister, Tama-Chan, at 3 months:

And my woofie Tommy at 4 months:

I hope you enjoyed coming on this sentimental journey with me!

Friends and Family on Friday

#1 has been feeling off-colour all week and so hasn't been taking a lot of photos. We of course forgive her because (a) she has been inside with us most of the week and (b) we want her to get better.

She does, however, still have to go outside with a certain woofie and, on one of those walks, she took this nice photo of our lovely Percheron filly neighbour:

She is apparently a very sweet girl and comes over for treats as soon as she sees #1 and Tommy!

And yesterday evening, they came across this meeting of our neighbourhood Feline Hunters' Committee, made up of Basha and Manoushka. Sorry it's not a better shot.

We are of course making sure she is well looked after, especially when she is in bed. So this morning, she woke up to a Sei-Beebs sandwich! With a little added Genji in her face...

Mama Tama thinks we're all very silly...

Tommy's Thankful Thursday

: First of all, we would like to wish all of our friends in the States a VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Don't eat too much turkey, will you?

Over here in France, it is just an ordinary day but of course, in our Blogospehere, it is THANKFUL THURSDAY every week, not just once a year. We are thankful today for our life, our friends, for being together and for all the small joys every day brings.

Tama-Chan Tuesday

As the reigning Mama-Tama of this house, it behooves me to keep an eye on young Genji to ensure that he is keeping himself clean, especially the area that was "interfered with" last week. He is doing a pretty good job:

We're enjoying another beautifully sunny and warm day. Our activity level is low-key, though. #1 brought some bug back with her from England, and has been coughing. Our advice to her is to find a sun puddle and take a nap.

Manly Monday

: I think I mentioned the other day that Dr. C gave #1 the go ahead to throw the Frisbee for me again whilst keeping an eagle eye on any possible limping as a result. I am happy to report that so far, so good! It seems I have forgotten none of my skills!

Here it comes!

Got it!

Back to #1!

All paws crossed that I won't have any more ligament problems.

Bibi-Chan: I fear that #1 has been rather slacking on the Beebography lately. So, I've had to go back a few weeks to find this:

And this:

And then this from when the pipsqueak muscled in on my bed. As you can see, I am firmly holding on to my tail!

Genji: #1 says that my "procedure" hasn't slowed me down one bit!

I still consider it very manly to nap tucked up against #1!

And of course I went and plonked myself down next The Beebs too!

Vidock: Just one shot from me today, showing you my muscular, and highly muddy, self trotting along in the autumn sunshine:
