Mondays and Memes

This handsome feline reminded me of my Boots. He has a different mouth but such a distinguished cat. Many people don't like black cats but I am a real fan. Our orange tabby is a super crybaby. Rose is very vain and always watching her reflection in the water bowl and likes to be left alone. Boots was like a real person. I miss him bunches and wanted to share this image and my own Boots photo here for Aw...Mondays with Sandee and the friends who follow and share this fun Monday share.
This photo of my boy Boots sits on this pretty crocheted doily from my grandmother Kocman. She was such a talented lady too. she had very serious health issues and my grandfather cared for her so lovingly all throughout their marriage. She had a creative heart for crocheting. I still have a tiny kewpie doll with a handmade crocheted dress. My grandmother was the love of my grandfathers life. I thought I would share her handiwork with Blue Monday since the doily is white and blue.
I was thinking, I felt so rotten the last few weeks, I forgot to post my Alphabet Day share. I was thinking how I spend many days zipping around, getting errands done. I found an image of a blue zipper. Putting a zipper in a dress or jacket is difficult. It is a real art. One I never mastered. I knew a woman once who told me she was a whiz of a seamstress. She put a zipper in a nightshirt for me once, that had pearl buttons and they kept popping opening so I thought a simple zipper would be great. She was worse than I was! The zipper is lopsided and it made me laugh because she claimed to be an expert and I think the poor gal couldn't see well. Why that story popped into my head, well, it made me feel less bad about sewing. My mom was a great sock darner and both of my sisters could sew. I was passed over for that talent. Wanted to share "Z" for this final Alphabet share. Final letter int he alphabet that is.
I am blessed. This is what I get to do before I head off to dreamland. A sweetheart of a hubby for sure.
HaHaHa! Maxine hit this one out of the ballpark. She is quite the character.
Enjoy your week!

Our black cat is named Blackie. How unique. haha. I had to laugh at your zipper story. I used to love to sew, but only if the article was easy to make. As usual, I love your Maxine clips. You have a super day, hugs, Edna B.

Too funny about the 'expert' seamstress! At least she provided you with a bit of comic relief you'll never forget! (My mom was a sock darn-er, too.)

I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well. Sad face.
Boots was cute! I love cats. I can't help but smother our Timothy with smooches all day long. He's just so dang cute!
