The Cat In The Window

(from an earlier post, April 6, 2007 - 
(A) Starts with the Letter "C":   Cat begins with the letter "C".  This is Amber, our cat sat kitty, we sat with Amber while she and family were in London five years with her work.


(B) "Colorful" (Tom's Choice):   This is our Colorfully decorated golf cart for a 4th of July parade with Mrs. Jim, Adi, and our new college graduate.  She received her Bachelor and Master degrees in Math, and SHE HAS A JOB, using her specialty,  "Statistics".   She taught college Statistics as a professors assistant her junior and senior years and then also as a graduate student teacher.  (Parades)

(C) A Favorite:  As soon as our Boarded Cat came, she decided that our Beagle Dog had a much nicer bed than she.  Adi wouldn't give in to her though, so Adi and Amber shared Adi's bed for her stay's duration (4 1/2 years until she died of old age, 18 years).
(For more Amber blog appearances on my blog, please click here.) 

(D) Reflections:  Now this sister Alley Cat decided to sit out the rain from her perch here, looking down a side street from her dry archway.  She wasn't wild at all as the Alley Cat looked in my top picture.
Instead she is a friendly cat who makes her fur shiny and her stomach round by begging food off the street and from the people eating at the outside cafes down the street from our hotel in Dubrovnik, Croatia (picture 1) (picture2). (original post with sister's cat).

Bonus Questions:

(1)   Tell a bit about your experience or feelings about parades?   When our grandkids were still kids they loved to go with us to a parade.  Sometimes we were in the parade, several times as adults, once driving the Mustang top down to carry a retired marine.  Also unusual I took the younger grandson to an Art Car Parade back when the Art Car Parade had just coming into existence.  Most times it was the Houston Thanksgiving parade or the local 4th of July parade.  

(2) What is your favorite Word starting with  "C"?   Mine today will be "Car" , I have had many in my life, list here to click.  I also have about 40 toy cars, most scale model cast iron cars. 

(3) Anything else you were reminded of here that you  would like to tell about?

Thanks Jim for COMING to the Party, take CARE.
I linked this post to Feline Friday. Just so you know. Adorable cat.

Looks like you're getting some warm weather. We're cold here.

(1) Tell a bit about your experience or feelings about parades? In my younger years I went so my son could enjoy the parade. It's too difficult for us now.

(2) What is your favorite Word starting with "C"? Courtesy. We need so much more of courtesy.

Have a fabulous day and weekend, Jim. My best to Mrs. Jim. ☺
Gee whiz- howdy Jim- I haven't seen your blog for quite awhile! Love your cat stories! We always have had cats- some we adopt and some adopt us! Our Lucy came to our door 10 years ago and moved right in at the ripe old age of 6 months! She's a pistol and we love her! Take care and I'll be back soon!
Enjoyed your photo Captures and accompanying discourse.I love seeing the area where my blogger friends reside!
I have never been to Houston yet. Unfortunately, I am allergic to cats. I have painted them on Canvas, not the real life Cat.( lol). I think parades are interesting. I’ve never marched in one, although our daughter danced in Macy’s Thanksgiving one. That was televised on TV. Katie Couric was blocking us seeing our daughter, the nerve 😉! We attended a small town one in a town that begins with C. It was enjoyable. I would have liked to have marched in several protest parades, but in recent years health issues made that not possible so I marched in our neighborhood alone, but with a sign...Hmm, my favorite C words: calamity ( I like the sound of it.), can can ( I am a dancer. I prefer to warch professionals do this dance, though.),cantankerous (;It sounds like its meaning!, caress)
Dear Jim, Above comment was from Gel. ( I tend to forget which Google account I used to make comments on blogger! )
Nice pictures! I love cats! :-)
I love the golf cart parade.
