Here I am thinking deep thoughts and surveying my catdom. The picture was done on the piZap app using one of the elebenty gazillion filter effects. The Staff has no idea which one, because by the time she settled on one, she'd forgotten what she was supposed to be doing anyway!! However, it looks very colourful, like the sun is reflecting through a prism. Of course, it doesn't do anything to enhance my already purrfect tuxie bod! Just kidding ;) We are joining the fun Caturday Art blog hop today hosted by Athena and Marie. Please click on the badge to check out the other blogs participating.

"Remember remember the fifth of November Gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder, treason Should ever be forgot..."
Way, way back in 1605, on the 5th November, this geezer Guy Fawkes and some mates were caught in the cellars of the Houses of Parliament in London with several dozen barrels of
gunpowder. It seems they were rather peeved because the King, James 1st, was Protestant when they wanted a Catholic king. They thought they would blow up parliament to make their point. Do you know? Things haven't really changed that much! People are still trying to kill each other all over the place :(
Guy Fawkes was subsequently tried as a traitor with his
co-conspirators for plotting against the government. He was tried in London by a Judge Popham. He was sentenced to death
and the form of the execution was one of the most horrendous ever practised
(hung, drawn and quartered) which reflected the serious nature of the crime of
What really, really gets my goat here is that ever since then, on and around 5th November, people have bonfires and let off really really noisy fireworks at all hours of the night. Some of them even burn effigies of Guy Fawkes, though that was more when The Staff was a little girl, in, like, 1606!
Between you and me, I spend an awful lot of time UTB this time of year!
Jesus said "But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you" Matt 5:39-42 ESV Comments are off
I've never seen the top of my head before! It's very mancatly, don't you think? This aerial shot was taken using the tip of my tail and a passing human who had nothing better to do at the time!

Yesterday was my 7th Gotcha day!! Oh yes it was! Seven years ago yesterday, a mad woman was prowling around the RSPCA rescue centre in Conwy looking for a dog to take home and lavish her affection on! I took one look at her and barked. The rest is history! Yesterday I spent the day nipping and napping and generally not doing anything. Today I am recovering! ;)
Here I am in my first ever picture taken by the mad woman! By this time she was already having doubts as to my provenance as a Canis lupus familiaris, but it was several more months before she gave up trying to get me to "fetch".
