Sunday Trees

Becca at “On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea” hosts Sunday Trees each week.  I’m going to be pretty much offline the next couple of weeks so it might take me a while to respond to your comments and visit your posts.

WHEN GOD CREATED KITTY CATS

When God created kitty cats,
He had no recipe;
He knew He wanted something sweet,
As sweet as sweet could be.

He started out with sugar,
Adding just a trace of spice;
Then stirred in drops of morning dew,
To keep them fresh and nice.

He thought cats should be soft to pet,
Thus He gave them coats of fur;
So they could show they were content,
He taught them how to purr.

He made for them long tails to wave,
While strutting down the walk;
Then trained them in meow-ology,
So they could do cat-talk.

He made them into acrobats,
And gave them grace and poise;
Their wide-eyed curiosity,
He took from little boys.

He put whiskers on their faces,
Gave them tiny ears for caps;
Then shaped their little bodies,
To snugly fit on laps.

He gave them eyes as big as saucers,
To look into man’s soul;
Then set a tolerance for mankind,
As their purpose and their goal.

Benevolent … and … generous,
He made so many of them;
Then charged, with Fatherly Concern,
The human race to love them.

When one jumped up upon His lap,
God gently stroked its head;
The cat gave Him a kitty kiss,
“What wondrous love,” God said.

God smiled at His accomplishment,
So pleased with His creation;
And said, with pride, as He sat back,
“At last. . .I’ve reached purr-fection!”

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge

For my odd ball photos, I have selected some older ones left over from Florida!


This odd ball leaf refused to leave my windshield!

Ugliest mushrooms ever! Also, reminds me of burnt marshmallows!

Pole lights outside of the Winter Garden Police Department. Reminds me of lollipops!

An old building in Oakland.

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge: Close Ups

From Cee:  This week the topic is Close ups.  I’m looking for you to get close to your subject.  You can have macros, but they are not necessary for this challenge.  If you can get close to a huge ship and can only take part of it’s hull, that works for me or maybe get up close to your beloved pet.  Anything is acceptable, as long as you are close.
