CK: Closeup and Personal

Hola! I'm sorry I was unable to bring you the review with the giveaway Wednesday. There were some technical difficulties. I'm shooting for next Wednesday. What more can you ax for than two stunning Flashback Friday closeups? Both were taken near the head of Pop's unmade bed six years apart. I haven't aged a bit but you'd think the newer one would be the blurrier one to hide my wrinkles. HAH! No wrinkles here!

These fotos are so similar, it's gonna be hard for me to give their story. They were chosen by two loyal Foto Frenzy fans whose we haven't heard from in awhile.

#192, from September 2008, was selected by the Tabbies o' Trout Towne. TW was taking a lot of fotos while I was on Pop's bed. It was a bright Sunday morning and this is the brightest room in the house. This foto is from the shoot the week after my header foto. TW turned the flash off or she may have gotten too close to me and this foto which caused this artistic blur.

I thank Aunt Pauline for picking #3999 from April 2014 cos this is an exceptionally stunning one. This was a long foto shoot on another bright Sunday morning so TW could show off how she uses the mackerel lens to take sharp close-ups. Nine fotos with one more stunning than the next. I hope I got treats for posing for these.

The Friendly Fill-Ins are hosted each and every week by 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader. They make up the fill-ins and I make up the answer. My answers are in italics. Each week my image relates to one of the fill-ins. This week it could be any of them.

1. When I am nervous, I bite Pop. I mean, like, why not?

2. When I am angry, I bite TW. She's prolly deserves it.

3. Today, I know for sure I will bite at least one of them.

4. For St. Patrick's day, I will eat corned o'beef and then bite my peeps. I may even offer a holiday BOGO—buy one bite, get one free. Not only am I stunning but I'm generous too.

It's time for some St. Paddy's Day (yes, that's how it's spelled!) art for your viewing pleasure.

CK: Closeup and Personal

My early entry in The Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by the lovely Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty and her mum, is an oil painting of an old plandid. Don't I look surprised even though I axed her to take the foto? I added a St. Patrick Day graphic cos why wouldn't I? When TW took the plandid, she cut the top half of my head off but you can see my food and social media is all about cats and showing your food, isn't it? You can see digital art created on one of the online apps, Photoshop art and art that is painted or drawn by those with true talent.

That's our "show" for today. Have a great St. Paddy's Day. Tell your peeps not to consume too many adult beverages. Remember, days like tomorrow and New Year's Eve are for the amateurs. I'll leave you with an old Irish proverb.

May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been, the foresight to know where you are going, and the insight to know when you have gone too far.

Happy St. Catrick's Day, CK! I hope you get lots of corned beef! My human's working all weekend, so I don't think she'll be drinking much. And definitely no green beer!

I like your photos, I wish I could take such great close-ups. Nice art too. And thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. How sweet of you to offer a buy one get one free bite offer. I can't believe you bite that often, you look so sweet. Have a nice weekend! XO

That is a great proverb. Sawyer says, "right on" when it comes to your first three fill-ins. You haven't changed a bit between those two photo shoots, CK. Just as beautiful in both photos.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

At first, I thought one of the shots was the picture on your magnet (which is on my refrigerator ... OBVIOUSLY) - but maybe it was the same shoot?!? Everyone should have stunning on their refrigerators!

Melissa, Mudpie and Angel Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

You sure enjoy biting, CK! Those are both very stunning shots of you today.

Wow, you get corned beef, CK? That's awesome!

Good answers on your fill-ins. Lots of biting. MOL.

Happy St. Catrick's Day to you, TW and Pop!

Was the corned beef good? Daddy can't stand the stuff so Mommy stopped cooking it years ago, before Scylla came to live here in fact so none of us know. Mommy says the boy beans liked it and the soda bread she made to go with it.

You sure do like to bite.

Little Binky and Granny said...

Your pictures are very well chosen by your furriends, CK and you made us MOL when we read the fill ins. Biting because you can...of course, why not...MOL :D The Irish roverb is just purrfect for an Irish man... but also for me :D Pawkisses for a Happy Sunday and hope you had a wonderful St. Paddy's Day :) <3

Athena bites too. I think it's an act of love as she does it very playfully and it never hurts.

Jean Neilson said...

Loved the answers CK. If nothing else you are honest. I appreciate that. You call a bite a bite and no love nibble. ha!
