Newsflash #14

Back in business. It was great getting all your get-well messages. Thank you so much! I’m grateful for the concern you have shown. After a 12-hour fasting period and a sufficient total sleep over a 24-hour period, Mr. Bowie’s doing fine now. At this moment, he’s enjoying the rays of the early morning sun.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Flashback #16

The guardian angel. A few months ago, I heard a hard bang against the window and I found a stunned bird outside. Apparently, a sparrow flew straight into the window of my house. Mr. Bowie, a natural born ornithologist, was outside and checked if the little one was okay. It reminded me of a similar story years ago. I placed the bird in a box so he could reboot in peace and quiet. I kept a watchful eye to make sure no potential predator (the neighbour’s cat) swoop in for a quick lunch. After 5 minutes the sparrow was recovered and flew away safely.

No animals (sparrows or cats) were harmed, killed or eaten during the shooting of these photographs.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

The Hardest Part

Sometimes waiting is the hardest part. But remember, Mr. Bowie, the catnip that grows slower bear the greatest fruit! Just relax and enjoy the sun. The future’s so bright, you probably gotta wear shades.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

He’s Back!

Finally! Mr. Bowie’s back… but actually, he was never gone. Guess he was only trying to keep a low profile. Right now Mr. Bowie’s looking forward to spring and summer, just like the rest of us in this part of the world. He’s right on top of the really important issue: getting the garden ready for new catnip plants! He has become a real expert on harvesting, storing and drying catnip. I wonder if I should give up my career as a musician and get started into the catnip business…

In the next post, we’ll talk about “eastern European gangs of thieves” and how Mr. Bowie deals with it.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Rain Rain Rain

Rain smashing hard against the window. Mr. Bowie cancelled his field trip in the garden due to heavy rain. By way of precaution, he crawled for shelter under the table.

I enjoy the sound of rain on the windows and the roof. I have become a very light sleeper, completely off sleep medication for about a month and the sound of rain helps me fall asleep at night.

Hibernation

Dangerous cold, snow, sleet and rain today. No Mr. Bowie, we can’t go outside. It’s even for a furry four-footer way too dangerous. How can I mentally survive winter? Do people really love winter that much? Can humans survive hibernation in good condition? Hmmm. I guess I’ll stick with espresso.

Say Goodbye and Say Hello

Live long and prosper. 2016 was a bumpy and emotional ride for me, my family and some dear friends. It looks like things can only get better in the new year. On the other hand, someone pointed out that I’m lucky. I’m born in a place where we are free to practice our beliefs without question. But the world is changing, and changing fast in some expected and unexpected parts. Freedom can easily slip away. Freedom for every religion, gender, race, belief and orientation. We must remain watchful to protect these freedoms.

Happy New Year! Hope you have a great new year 2017. May all your dreams come true. Looking at the photograph, Mr. Bowie seems to say “Live long and prosper”. He probably picked it up from watching too many Star Trek episodes as a kitten. Thank you for hanging out with us at HoB. Thanks for all your likes, comments and kindness. Love, peace and happiness.

Mr. Bowie says “Happy Meow Year!” Viva la Vida!
