Fun with Friends on Friday

One of the happyish (I say "ish" cause I wasn't invited) things that kept my beans busy was going to the Atlanta area to visit my aunt, uncle and cousins. While they were there, mommy got to meet the human members of the Purrageous Pirate family!

You may not know that thru a magazine called Victorian Decorating and Lifestyle, mommy and the furry Purrageous Pirate kitties mommy "met" and became pen pals. That was twelve whole years ago and this was the first time they met in person!

They got to go to tour the historic Oakland Cemetery and had a nommy lunch together. Mommy said now she knows why the area is nicknamed "Hotlanta." Wow it was hot! The sweet tea made it all worthwhile she said...that and the wonderful company.

She was so very happy meeting her dear friend Catherine in person. She still smiles and tears up every time she sees the pictures and thinks about it.

I laugh cause even tho my stinky boy is two years old, he was shorter than the Cabin Boy who is 4+ months younger! ha ha ha The Cabin Boy sure looks nice and cute. I wonder if he gives his kitties a break or if they take turns. Like tag team wrestlers.

Mommy said being at Oakland Cemetery with the 20 Union soldiers and the 2500 Confederate soldiers buried there was even more moving and emotional because they went over 4th of July weekend. We are very glad we are still one country that can celebrate freedom together (especially with grilled chicken...and salmon)!!!

Mommy will never forget meeting the human Purrageous Pirates or the fun she had in Hotlanta...and the tea...

It sounds like your humans had an awesome time, even if you couldn't come along, Hendrix!

Hendrix, dude, the Cabin Boy never leaves us alone!! We have to take turns or else he will think he is in charge or something (the horror!!)

Our Mommy really loved meeting your Mommy. She walked around here almost dancing with excitement leading up to it and then smiled for days after they got back. Next time dude, we are meeting, and to heck with the humns!!!

It's a shame you didn't get to go, Hendrix. I'm betting you would have had a great time!
