Saturday Photo Hunt #58: PARTY!


PARTY!

The Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt theme for this week is PARTY!


This is a photograph taken on February 14, 1989.  It's a birthday PARTY!

The guest of honor is the woofie.  Her name was Peaches an' she was born in 1971.  She was Mom's.  The kitties at the "PARTY" for Peaches' EIGHTEENTH birthday were the "cats who came before" an' they were born on July 4, 1988, so they were six months old in this photo.  

Mom's fambly were the wranglers holding the kitties for the photo an' Mom was the photographer.  Peaches an' the kitties made quick work of those carob cuppy-cakes with the sprinkles on top after the flashy box went "flash"!

From the left to the right:  Lacey Bunns an' Peaches wrangled by Grandma; Percy wrangled by our Uncle James; an' Cookie Monster wrangled by Grandad.

The only kitty who refused to cooperate with the PARTY photo was Meemaw.  She didn't like the little boy who was invited to the woofie birthday PARTY.  His name was Tommy (an' he's probably about twenty-two by now).  He used to "meow" at the kitties an' his voice was furry scary ... I've been told.

The sad thing is that Mom's woofie was helped to the Bridge about a month later (on March 9, 1989).  Mom's glad that she had this little PARTY for Peaches ... an' that she has a picture to help her to remember.

Pictures are so nice to have, especially after a loved one is gone. What a great moment to capture to remember.

That is a great photo. Mom can easily believe that they all made short work of the cupcakes. It is sad that Peaches went to the bridge soon after, but at least his mom had wonderful memories of that party.
