Frootbat Friday and Happy Bonk New Year

We hope all of you had a safe and bronkie happy Krissmiss
and that you are ready for the Happy New Year

Yep, we are going to be here by the big window
and wait for the new year to tumble in.
Our Frootbat ears will be perked up for any notable bonk signs.

Happy New Year
we will bronk and bonk you next year!!

We will open the book.
Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity
and its first chapter is
New Year's Day.

~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near,

A little gift from one held dear,

Best wishes for the coming year!!

incapable of dreaming up the obstacles
that stop the rest of us.

Pierro: hey bonks kitties. My dear brofur Miles and I just hung our stockings on the tree.

Miles: We are all set to bronk and be good kitties until Krissmiss

Pierro: Happy Frootbat Friday!

here is a kwote for our mom
who just celebrated her birthday yesterday:

When I was younger,
I could remember anything,
whether it had happened or not;
but my faculties are decaying now
and soon I shall be so I cannot remember
any but the things that never happened.

~~Mark Twain
(hoo-bronk is that ever true :-P )

Pierro: I will only wear a hat and sit nicely with a bunch of bonkie Krismiss stockings for now, mom

Small deeds done are better than
great deeds planned.

Frootbat Friday

Pierro: Happy Snappybonkbonk Friday kitties
we hope all of you have a frootbatty fun day.

Miles: Pierro and I had a very busy week-
and a couple of days mom and dad were not home.
We had to be good all by ourselves!!

Today we are
bronking the day off


We Honor Our Veterans

The Voices of Courage
The call to serve.
It has no sound, yet I have heard it.
In the whispered retelling of honorable sacrifices
made by those who have served before me.
The call to serve has no form, yet I have clearly seen it.
In the eyes of men and women
infinitely more courageous and more driven than most.
The call to serve has no weight, yet I have held it in my hands.
I will commit to carry it close to my heart
until my country is safe,
and the anguish of those less fortunate has been soothed.
The call to serve is at once invisible and always present.
And for those that choose to answer the call;
for their country, for their fellow man,
for themselves, it is the most powerful force on earth!
