We thought we'd go all nostalgic today! This photo is from 5th May 2008 not long after Tigger (aka Sparky) and I first had smacky paws met over a mouseburger take-away and I brought him home to introduce him to the family! Pity I didn't realise how successfully he would ingratiate himself over nearly 7 1/2 years! MOL

Because it's like, you know, ancient history and everything, The Staff aka TAT made it look all retro and sepia in PicMonkey and added the drop shadow frame! I said "We're not THAT old!" and she said "Tough, I'm the one with the opposable thumbs and online account!" Sheesh, no need to be so snarky!

Anyways here is the original :)
We look kind of small skinny cute don't you think? ;)

Sunday Selfie with Tigger (aka Sparky)

It's what you might call a mistake!
But it was definitely only one take!
Come on, just give me a break
At least you can tell I'm not fake! ;)

Austin goes to pieces!

I was jigsawed in and then I was framed!
The things I do for Art!
It's a tough life!

Work of Art - a creative product with strong imaginative or aesthetic appeal
Something created by someone called Arthur. Isn't necessarily pretty!

Long Tall Austin!

(photo originally on Instagram)

Now what can I smell over here?
It certainly seems rather queer!
It's making me sneeze!
It's that stinky cheese,
The typist's so fond of; Oh dear!

Caturday Arrrrt, Me Hearties!

Shiver me timbers and swashbuckle me sprogs. 
It's that time again, you scurvy old dogs!
Avast and Ahoy! Let's play the odd prank.
If you don't toe the line, you shall walk the plank!

Me Roger is jolly and I've saved me some booty.
But I can never sit down on my cutie patootie!
The mutinous crew rise up and steal all
And then they vote that me they'll keelhaul!

The moral here is plain, it's no shocker!
If you don't want to be thrown in Davy Jones' Locker.
Treat your mateys fair and give them their due.
And then they will not yo-ho-ho you!
Yes, it's THAT time of year again, when we forget all semblance of normality and talk like Long John Silver on speed! It's Meow like a Pirate day!

The Staff made me and Tigger and Mini-Me dress up and look really stoopid, but that's ok, we can rise above that. What we can't rise above is the telescope which is stuck to my eye with no visible means of support! MOL. The Staff used pretty well every photo editor in existence for this and she still couldn't get it right. Bless! But we give her ten out of ten for trying :)

There is a big pirate pawty going on at Speedy's all this weekend. Just click on the image below to check it out.

Many of you have had your picture sketched by Mr Thomas Clausen of "One Drawing Daily". You can see mine over in the side bar. Well, did you know he now also does commissioned pet portraits?

He has a specially designated web site, so you can check it out for yourselves. The portraits are indeed very good. You can visit him here.
