Percy Leads All Creatures

Hey, Blogger, this is Percy. Are you there? I'd like to report an annoying glitch in your pic posting procedure. It doesn't work half the time! First, you wouldn't load me, then you installed ten copies. Yes, 10 oopies of this same photo! And when I deleted 9, you threw in #11. Now I have no problem having my mancatly handsomeness displayed ten - well, 11 times in a row, but our readers might not stick around to scroll down far enough to see what I'm posting..

And I have a furry appropriate - yes, furry appropriate video for our Sunday post. 

Cotton suggests I begin with a favorite quote from St. Francis of Assisi: If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.

If there are no more interruptions or suggestions, let's get to the main feature.  It's a beautiful slide show of animals and human scenes to compliment the song "All Creatures of Our God and King."  The arrangement is by Fernando Ortega.

The song is based on Psalm 148:7-10: Praise the Lord from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding, you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds.

I'm sure you'll enjoy it.  It's such a pretty tune, I haven't been able to resist standing and waving my paws to lead the orchestra.  And now that I've got the hang of it, I'm thinking of applying for a job as a conductor. Would any of you volunteer to give a reference for me?

  1. Don't yous love it when your computer - or the software - take over?
    Kisses and has a easy Sunday

  2. Perhaps Blogger is enamoured of you, Percy to want to have 10 pics of you. I mean who wouldn't be?

    Love the hymn and the slide show very much :)

    Happy Sunday!

  3. Lovely Percy!! Me and Charlie think you'd make a most fabulous conductor!! Yay! Take care

  8. Hmmm, we figured on nine rather than eleven pictures of Percy. Could it be that he has two extra lives?

  9. Oh, sweet Percy do we ever agree with you...lots of things don't work half the time or anytime. You know what happened to us. We are so happy you found our new blog and was able to comment. We are happy we can comment on your blog again. Hugs and nose kisses

  10. Blogger sure does some weerd stuff sometimes. For us, it likes to refuse to load pictures at all!

  11. Greetings everyone,

    At least we have not experienced Picasa problems before, but then on the other hand we are still dealing with an Id conflict between the cat's blog and those with dad's other blogs. It has been months.

    We of course hope you do not encounter this computer glitch again.

    Warmest regards,
    Ms K and dad

  12. Puters and bloggers are brilliant when they work! LOL
