A new baby and Cat talk

  Memorable Automobiles from The Past:

 1985 Tornado (who knew that this FIRST USA car would be the forerunner of the front wheel drive here in the USA?

For today:

Speaking to the cats: “Hey dudes, we have a new baby in the family, Matt and Kiersten now have a new baby boy named ‘Jack Wiley ’. Aren’t you happy for us?”

The cats walked off and Tiger Two turned and said, “Just one???”…..  Smart Alec cats! 

I heard one of them say as they squeezed thru the small spot under the Garage door, “Mama Stormy said he called us puppies when we were born; we were seven puppies at one time. What is the big deal about humans having just one puppy? People, we will never understand them!..... What does 8lbs mean anyway?”

Kiersten did a good job, She builds 'em big..8 lbs. Bless her heart, I know she is glad this is over.

Anyway whether they like it or not we are excited for Matt and Kiersten. Maverick is three now and Paw Paw Mark brought him down to play and visit. WE all were surprised that they named their first born Maverick (we did like it). I sort expected this one to be named Wyatt (as in Earp), ;-).

Maverick is now the big brother. There is always the question of how the new baby will be accepted, but Mav will probably do well.

The family before this latest addition. A sweet family, love'em
to pieces.

Maverick loves cats, but the feral’s will not allow strangers to pet them. There is a spot in our picnic area where I hung a 5 gallon bucket with no bottom for Matthew Dillon to shoot basketball when he was Mav’s age. 

Just before Maverick and Mark came down I had finished a kid’s basketball goal and they got to shoot some goals.

Coming up is another birthday. We will celebrate Jack Jr’s grandson ‘JUDE’s’ birthday, he is now six. His family will come out from Oak Ridge, TN to celebrate at Josh and Megan’s house.  Normally they would be here in this house if we were not occupying now.

This is Jude and his baby sister Kennedy, Jude is very camera shy and I seldom get a picture.

This place is used as sort of a motel when we were away. WE still have not decided our own future here. Is it back to Florida for the remaining winter? We do have options, and the house is warm. LOL


A cute dancing video, BUT for the kicker you must fast fwd or watch it to the end.

The dancing video was hilarious! Proud of them.
Gee your family is expanding! Congrats! They will get along and be close!

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

Congrats to the new parents on the birth of their new baby. Thank goodness we do not produce a whole littler at one time. Glad to see you keep in touch with all of them and know what is new in their lives. Your son must be a proud grandpa! I know your sons visit as often as possible. GLAD IT WAS ANOTHER GREAT GRAND AND NOT ANOTHER CAT. SEENS YOU'VE GOT YOUR HANDS FULL OF THEM FOR NOW.

That was a funny twist on the dance routine!
Congratulations to all ... especially Maverick. Being a big brother's serious business!

PS I'm laughing at the 'thought bubble' over your kitty's head: "Just one?"

Cute video! Very funny too! Congrats on the new addition to the family and he sports a fabulous name! I love the name Maverick also! I'm sure the folks who have the rare 5 or 6 kiddos at once do feel like a cat or dog having a litter! My sister is getting a puppy and that mom dog had 14! Whew! Have a good Sunday and enjoy the family!

Congrats to a sweet family and love the names. Then look at handsome Jude with those dark eyes. I love pictures of the little ones, so innocent. Your family is growing strong. Have fun with them. They always grow up and away so quickly.
Pet the kitties for me.
