The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky and an Important Announcement

 


Waiting by the Teleportation Tunnel, Periwinkle quickly looked at her furs to ensure everything was perfect for when her boyfriend Stinky arrived.   She couldn't wait to see him.   Somehow, the weeks seemed soooo long and the time they spent together on Tuesdays went by so FAST.

With a familiar WOOSH, he popped out of the tunnel and landed right in front of her.  They spent some time whisker kissing, sharing paw pats and catching up on what they did since last Tuesday.  Finally, Stinky asked what they were going to do that day.  Periwinkle told him they were going over the causeway to a little area known as EGAD or Eau Gallie Arts District.   Stinky was intrigued and happily joined her in the car so Periwinkle's Mom could drive them the short distance.

When they got out of the car Stinky gasped!  "OH MY COD, did we just drive over THAT?"


Periwinkle reminded Stinky that she lived on a barrier island and that the causeway was the only way to get to the mainland.  Stinky remembered her telling him that and hoped she didn't think he was afraid of the causeway (although he was a teeny bit scared of it).

"Let's get a photo here at the sign before we start our adventure," said Periwinkle.


Periwinkle told Stinky they were going to look at some murals and pulled up the EGAD mural map on her phone and they started their tour.


"Wow, that's a lot of murals, will we have time to see all of them? asked Stinky.  "Not today but we'll see some of my favorites" she replied.

First, they went to the bandshell by the entrance sign to see the mural on the back.  Both agreed it was super!


Next, they consulted the map and headed over to the Astronaut.   "If you look into his helmet, you can see the reflection of the street," said Periwinkle.


They spotted the hummingbird and were amazed at the detail.

The yummy smells from the bakery lead them over to the cool mural of people.


The bakery smells made them hungry so they decided to stop for a snack at a little Irish Pub.  On the way there, they passed this fun mural.


They were really impurresssed with the variety of Fancy Feast and Temptations the pub had and they enjoyed the cool breezes coming off the river.


Refreshed from their snack, Periwinkle told Stinky they headed out again.  First, they crossed the street again (after carefully looking up and down to make sure there were no cars).  "Wow, this Peacock is amazing," said Stinky.  Periwinkle agreed.


Going back, Stinky ran up to one of the murals and shouted "FEV-VERS!!"   Periwinkle giggled and said they were pawsome feathers but they couldn't play with them because they were painted.


Taking Stinky's paw, Periwinkle said she wanted to show him something else that was not a mural but she thought he would like.  "I know you have mosaics on your house and I thought you would enjoy seeing this one,"  she said.   Stinky agreed that it was pretty amazing.


Periwinkle called her Mom to come to pick them  up and they waited on the boardwalk holding paws and
enjoying each other's company.

When they returned to Periwinkle's house, they visited with her brofur Raz and her Mom and then spent some time whisker kissing and snuggling together.  They were both tired and had a quick nap before it was time for Stinky to head home.

"I really enjoyed seeing the murals today," said Stinky.  Periwinkle gave him the website to look at others and show his Mom and Dad and fursibs.  With a quick whisker kiss, Stinky headed into the Teleportation Tunnel and headed home.  As always, Periwinkle had a tear in her eye when he left and decided to find a sun puddle and start counting the days until they would be together again.

Monday Sparks

 Happy Flag Day.  Angel Ellie knew it was important to respect our flag.


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.

Sunday Selfies

 We're pawticipating in The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies today.




I had the opportunity to take a selfie without YOU KNOW WHO photobombing me so I quickly grabbed Mom's phone and snapped it.  I hope Sawyer likes it.

Hi Sawyer, want to go lizard hunting with me?

Caturday Cat Art

 


We're joining Athena's Caturday Art Blog Hop

Mom was looking through Dreamscope to see if there was any "new" artwork since it takes FOREVER to get anything done.  We found this photo of Raz on the table with the sailboat.  We checked our puzzles and don't seem to have ever made one so we don't think we've shared this before.


And we made a puzzle!

Friendly Fill-ins and Flashback Friday

We're pawticipating in Friendly Fill-ins sponsored by Four Legged Furballs and 15 and Meowing.

                                     

We're taking turns answering today.  Mom has the first two then Noelle and Raz. 

1. I am overdue to __clean out the garage but now it's too HOT___.
2. I am so sick of __the super hot weather and it's only June_____.
3. __Lizards___ is (are) a strange snack I like to eat. Well, I don't actually EAT them but I play with them until they are deaded or Mom rescues them.  I really want to send a nice juicy one to Sawyer.
4. _A very special red mousie__ is one of the most random things I own.


Today is also Flashback Friday.   Angel Clifford always had a smile on his face!

Poetic Thankful Thursday

 Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats



Today's photo prompt is


The Grumpy Baby

Mom says I look grumpy
Life as a baby can be bumpy.
Everyone says I am cute
Sometimes I think that's a hoot
Today I think I will just sit on my rump
I don't care if you think I'm a grump.

Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!


We're THANKFUL that Mom got up early and won us another cool badge in Teddy's Tuesday Teaser.  She was one of FIVE first commenters!!

We think both Angel Allie and Angel Ellie were beauties.....
