The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky


As she always did on Tuesdays, Periwinkle woke up with butterflies in her tummy.  Well, not REAL ones but the kind you get when you are super excited about what the day will be like.  As she groomed her furs, she saw the Teleportation Tunnel start to wobble and, with a WOOOSH, out popped her boyfriend, Stinky.  They spent time paw patting and whisker kissing and enjoying a sun puddle.  Stinky mentioned how nice the weather was and Periwinkle said that the weather probably would mess up her plans for the day.  Stinky looked at her with a confused look but then she explained "I planned on visiting the manatees today since we had some really cold weather but I think they have already left."  Undaunted by this, they headed out to see if any manatees were around.  Periwinkle's Mom drove them.  She made sure they were safely buckled up and off they went.

As Periwinkle feared, the manatees were all gone.  They looked all over...

Even though they were disappointed there were no manatees, the tabbies enjoyed spending time together holding paws and talking.

Of course, Stinky couldn't resist climbing on a rock...

 And they both agreed they would NOT feed or harass the crocodiles!!

Periwinkle took out her phone and called her Mom and they headed back to her house.

Periwinkle asked Stinky if he would like to meet the newest Florida Furkid.  He had no idea she had a new fursib and went with her when she took his paw and led him outside to the pool.  He thought it was strange that she was giggling the whole time.

"Meet my new fursib!  We haven't named him yet, maybe our followers will come up with a name for us"

Stinky laughed and tried NOT to roll his eyes.  Periwinkle explained that her Mom bought this cool robotic pool cleaner and they all loved watching him run in the pool.  Of course, neither tabby wanted to get their furs wet so they headed into the house.

Periwinkle said there was another part to their Adventure which was telling their followers about National Cat Lover's Month.  They agreed there really didn't need to be a special month for that but they wanted to share more information about it.

"This special month has been celebrated since the mid-1990s to recognize both cats and cat lovers all over the world" said Periwinkle.  Stinky added that this would be a nice time to give your cat extra treats which made Periwinkle start giggling again.  Reading books about cats (or gifting a cat loving friend with one or more) would be another nice way to celebrate.  Periwinkle shared a link to a place for FREE Cat lovers books.

She also showed Stinky a timeline of the history of cats

Periwinkle turned around and couldn't find Stinky.  Needless to say, the urge to climb got to him and she found him on the entertainment center in the middle of the Christmas village.

The two decided to take a quick catnap and spent time whisker kissing and paw patting.  Periwinkle apologized for an Adventure that didn't turn out as planned and promised she would let him know when the manatees came back.  

Stinky visited with Periwinkle's fursibs, thanked her Mom for the ride and headed to the Teleportation Tunnel.  Blowing her one last kiss, he teleported back home.

Periwinkle and Stinky would like to remind you to send them your suggestions for the new "fursib" pool cleaner.  They'll tell you what they choose on their next adventure.

Monday Sparks

 Even though McGuffy's reader is taking a break, we are continuing our Monday Sparks posts!  From the original Sparks posts:

Welcome to Sparks. Many years ago, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed other people's spirit as well. Life got busy, and this fell by the wayside. Now, I feel a strong need to bring this feature back. 
The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy and peace. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change. 
I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!
I hope you will join us. Please link up a positive quote, thought, poem, or verse. The badge and code can be found in my sidebar. Add the badge to your post to invite others. The more, the merrier. I welcome your thoughts. Peace.
