This is what she wrote on her other blog this morning.....
I have had two cat blogs in my day. One was about Max the Quilt Cat and the other was about HH and The Boys (HH... that's me... is short for Her Highness). The boys are my current cats, Bugsy and Knuckles.
I love telling the stories of the cats; but with blogs on writing and art and the two other blogs (Florida Book News and Brevard Art News) that I write to help Florida artists and writers; I've had to consolidate -- just not enough hours in the day.
I hope all of you, who follow Bugsy and Knuckles, will follow them over here (Note from Knuckles... "Here" means at www.loubelcher.com). I'll be keeping you up to date a couple of times a week on their antics and their opinions of my opinions...
We'll try hard to have articles and postings of interest to all of you..
So go to LouBelcher.com and sign on to receive the posts by email (or though RSS feed or whatever you do) if you want. And you know we love comments.
So, drop on by....
Lou and The Boys
So that's what she wrote... And you know what?. HH has been jumping around trying to do it all for so long.... but we haven't been able to comment much and we haven't been able to read your blogs as much as before, so we have our paws crossed that this will solve the problem.
Bugsy and I will still have our voice and get our pictures took and posted, and HH will have more time to post with everything all on one blog. Hope it works for you, cuz we love you all and of course.... you know that Max loves you too.
You know these kitties for sure. They are the famous Funny Farm Felines. If you don't know them, please go visit their blog
Well, these are the portraits that HH painted of them during the 30 day challenge. And today, since it's Thankful Thursday, we are here to tell you we are thankful for them and thankful for their portraits.
Why, you ask? You know we've been selling some of the paintings on the For Amy site to raise funds for Amy.... (You can read about that over there.) Well, in addition to the on-line fund raiser, this past Friday night there was an in-person fund raiser in New Hampshire too... To participate in that, HH and her friend Sheila decided that the Funny Farm Felines are so cute as a group that they needed to make a personal appearance at the fund raiser. So, Sheila shipped them all up there.
WOW... they were a huge hit and brought in $250 for the cause and they found a wonderful home where they will be able to hang together forever.
So... thank you Funny Farm Felines for posing for the portraits and thank you Jan for sending countless photos to help HH paint them...
At Last..... no painted kitties today. We have our blog back and are happy about that.
Guess what happened to Sheila... HH's pal from the Studio. She has the two labs... Sammy and Ozzie... Well last week... Lola a Newfy came to live with them... We wanted to meet Lola, but when HH said she is a giant of a dog, we decided we should just admire her from afar....
Isn't she cute..... Maybe someday we'll meet her..... First we'll let her settle in a Sheila's house. Bet Sheila will be painting her picture soon.
Have a great day everybuddy.
hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles.
We are so sad that Mr. Pip has run off to the bridge... We send love to him and to his family. You were a giant of a friend, Pip....
HH just finished this painting for her friend. Some of you may know who this is. It's The Great Noodles from the early days of Twitter. What a great cat he is. He doesn't have a blog, so we can't send you to visit him, but just take our word for it... next to us... he's HH's favorite cat.
Here he is on Thanksgiving day. This is him when he first saw the turkey come out of the oven....
It's Tooona Tuesday everybuddy and we are excited... HH was away with some other artists friends for a couple of day trips and then she would come home at 9 or so in the evening... We were worried.... She just hasn't left us much.
The first night .... Knuckles flopped down on top of her and would not let her up.... the seconds night (when it happened again that she didn't come home until 9 or 10 o'clock) Knuckles gave her the stink eye and then the cold shoulder.
Me.... I knew she was coming back. I just acted normal.
Anyway... she is back to normal hours now and we are happy about that. So this morning before she left for the studio, she gave us a bunch of Toooooona to share with you. So, come on over. We made Tuna Pizza for you...
Also.... don't miss the last two kitties that HH painted. They are from Jan's Funny Farm. It's Cameron and Cyndie....
Here are all 30 of you kitties who posed for portraits in September. HH has finished the poster and has made it available to any who want it at Fine Art America. They allow you to pick whether you want a greeting card or some form of a print to hang on the wall.
Anyway, this isn't a sales pitch. HH just wanted you to know that it's there in case you want one of the group shots.
We are looking forward to just lazing around this Monday. How's your week shaping up?
We told you we'd be back with Calista Jo from The Cat On My Head, and here we are... Finally, HH and Calista had a sit down and heart-to-heart talk, and HH begged her to pose and not change her pose, so HH could paint her.
And here we are. She has such pretty fur, she didn't want it to be captured on canvas, but alas.... Here she is in all her beauty. If you haven't stopped over to The Cat On My Head, please do so and tell Calista how beautiful she is in person.
Hope you are all having an Easy Sunday... We are... Now all HH needs to do is finish the poster and we'll post that in the next day or two.
