Why Madi Is Proud to be Crotchety

Many years ago one of our very first blogging friends was a great big Newfie named Remington.  Remi’s and his mom were veryveryvery (to infinity) dear friends.  His Mom was also a very, very talented fiber artist. She told mom about how she would save Remington’s hair when she brushed him. When she had enough she spun it into yarn for knitting or crocheting.  Mom was very interested. She told mom to start saving my furs.  For a year, Mom brushed, and brushed, until I was certain I would become hairless. Even though I liked to be brushed sometimes I was a wee bit crotchety. Every month mom would send a zip lock bag of my furs to Remi’s mom.

 After 9 months, she mixed some of Remi’s longer furs in with my short ones to make it stronger and ….My friends, below the gray ball of yarn you see, IS Madi fur spun into yarn…What you see below is 70 yards of yarn. The majority is my fur with a little colored wool mixed in it, I knew it smelled familiar!!!! MOL  Below you will see attached to items mom made with my furs.                                                            

Mom bought 2 skeins over very pretty mingled blue yarn too.

She got her crocheting fingers all limbered up and went to work.                                                      She used the mingled blue yarn to crochet herself a scarf the two dark gray rows are my furs.Then she had enough of my fur yarn leftover to mix in with other similar colors to make me a mini afghan.

Sometimes she crocheted so much it made me crotchety because I had to get in her face to remind her that HEY  you need to feed me or HEY you need to write my blog.

So as you can see I earned my Proud to Be Crotchety title a long time ago

The Cougars Gather For Tea

 

KALI:  How was your trip up here Lily Olivia?

LILY OLIVIA;  Pretty good…that flying carpet is fast but the wind will knock you over,  Lucky you got seat belts.

KALI:  I insisted on them.  One can never be too careful, I always say.

Madi..I thought the carpet was kinda slow…like it needed a good vacuuming.  Or maybe it was Binga slowing the carpet down.  Have you put on a few pounds there, Binga? MOL

BINGA:  How dare you, you, white-legged piece of fur!

MADI:  Who’s this chap on the arbor?  Hubba, hubba.


KALI: That’s Cow Kitty…he likes to visit us.

MADI: He’s a real looker with those black and white marks. I must go mew with him.

PHOEBE: Work it, Madi, work it!  That’s it….own it.

MADI:  Well, hello there, big boy.  How’s it hangin’?

COW KITTY:  How’s what hangin’?  I don’t understand.

MADI:  Ah…how’s your fur hangin’ *rolls eyes*?

COW KITTY:  It’s dang hot with all this fuzz…I’m not impressed.  I thought it was an insulator against the real hot…not likely!

MADI:  Perhaps I’m the reason you’re so warm.

COW KITTY:  Why?  What did you do to me?

MADI:  You’re under my spell.  Feel it!

COW KITTY:  What are you doin’ casting spells on me!  Get away….you’re old enough to be my grandmother.

SARABI:  C’mon Madi let’s have our tea.  You’ll feel better after a cuppa.                                                           

 

ALI:  What a spread. Can I pour a cuppa for you Madi? Whoops, sorry. I didn’t splash the hot tea on you did I? I’m so sorry Madi! Here’s a bib…it has some cat nip on it.

MADI: Thanks, Ali, I know you didn’t mean to spill the tea.

COW KITTY:  Somebody here has my favourite perfume on…is it you Madi?   Do you mind if I cuddle with you??

MADI:  I thought I was grandmother material…

COW KITTY:  Oh no…..let me sniff you my sweets.

This is a glimpse at the Crotchety Cougars tea party.

Join us next month for another glimpse at the Crotchety Cougars in action.                                                                                       

Welcome Crotchety Cougars

 

We have Allie, Madi, Lily Olivia, Binga, Phoebe, Kali, Ali, Sarabi and Angel Ellie as members.  I have made this blog a public blog.  If, you want me to make it private….I’ll need some help.  I think the picture is way too big but I’ll have to learn to make it smaller.
