Friday Smiles 77: spending time with Bleubeard


I'm joining Annie at A Stitch in Time for Friday Smiles again this week.  And even though it's been a very, very busy week, cleaning up after I entertained company over the holiday last week, I was going to planning to do a photo shoot with Bleubeard. 

Unfortunately, I had to dig into my "Bleubeard" folder in order to make this mosaic, since the only real photo I got of him yesterday (Thursday) was the middle bottom where he was in the kitchen and I was near the front door in the living/dining area. 

Like I said, it's not been a big week of smiles here, since it's mostly been cleaning, doing loads and loads of laundry, cleaning, scooping poop, cleaning, mowing, cleaning, edging, and did I mention cleaning?  I hope your week was FILLED with smiles, and you will join Annie for Friday Smiles that are surely more fulfilling than mine.  Of course, who wouldn't smile when they see Bleubeard?  I'm sure most of you will.

Hi Elizabeth.. happy Friday and that's a lovely series of Bleubeard photos...I understand about capture them sometimes is quite difficult, usually mine will just want to get up and have a closer look at the camera or wander off..like you're not taking my photo today. Hope the cleaning is all over so you can have a relaxing weekend. Cheers Robyn

Cat law number 1Never pose when camera appears .
Number 2 move as they think they have perfect shot
Number 3 curl tight
A treat is an acceptable bribe.

Bleubeard always makes me smile! My favorite photo is the one in the center where you had to use stealth night vision to snap! :) Have a wonderful weekend!

He is so photogenic, but definitely only gets his picture taken when he wants to (or when he's asleep) as all cats do! I enjoyed seeing this group of photos Elizabeth!

It gave me a Friday smile. The "cleaning" reminds me that I really do need to do some of that too, plus some scoop, and watering and some ironing (yes I am still one of THOSE people), well it's just a never ending list..........so why start? LOL
Have a great weekend!

I declared cleaning a dirty word in my house maybe you need to too. Love the shots of Bluebeard.

I'd love to say how cute bleubeard is ( he is) but my dog Rosie won't let me ha ha. I hope you have recovered from all that cleaning

He's awfully handsome to look at but not a big helper in the cleaning department is he. Cleaning and packing for me, hate cleaning, just such a waste of time, but necessary I guess. xox

Hi Elizabeth,

Great mosaic of Bluebeard. I NEED to clean. As a matter of fact I just bought myself a carpet cleaner specifically for pets -- we'll see how much hair it picks up.

Hugs,
