Backup and Install

Rusty:  We're glad this is the end of the week.  It's been a busy one.

Merci:  And we've gotten way behind in everything.  We're going to have to work harder to catch up.

Micah:  It's been a good week, though, so we're not complaining, just letting you know why we might not have been by yet to thank you for remembering Jan on her Gotcha Day.

Cameron:  Jan's brother Mr. Doug came by yesterday with a new external drive to do a pickup on our computer.

Sam:  Backup, Cameron.

Cameron:  What for?  I'm not in your way!

Sam:  I'm not telling you to back up.  The new drive is to do a backup on our computer.  Not a pickup.

Cyndi:  Mr. Doug also installed a graphic card and setting up that took time.  When we finish this post, we're going to have to recalibrate our monitor 'cause now it's confused again.

Marcus:  Not nearly as confused as Jan was when she looked in My Pictures and there were nearly 700 folders missing.  

Percy:  The look on her face was priceless.  Fortunately, the files reappeared after a few clicks around the disk.

Buddy:  I, for one, am very glad we furries don't have to deal with those minor details.  We just let the humans do the setup and maintenance.  It's kind of entertaining to watch.

Merci: This is a Sepia Saturday copy of Sam and Marcus vying for the same treat.  Marcus nearly has his tongue on it, so we assume he won.

Rusty:  This is the original photo.  

Percy:  We don't know how this photo will look in your monitor, but for Caturday Art we used something called Bas Relief on it.

Sam:  And in case it's hard to see the detail, we added some blue.

Buddy:  Some of you participated in the Mother's Day Smilebox project put together by the mom from Mona, Weenie & the Mommy too. She is now putting together a Smilebox for Father's Day. 

Marcus:  This Smilebox was supposed to be posted Father's Day but the mom was in the hospital that weekend.  It will be published on July 4th instead.   The deadline to submit photos of your pet and his or her daddy is June 30th.

Percy: The pet blogging daddies are a bit more shy than the moms, so there aren't many entries.  A grandpa, uncle, cousin or male friend of your pet can be entered.

Cyndi:  Pictures of fosters or pets that have gone to the bridge can also be submitted.

Micah:  Send your photos to Include your name and the name of that man in your pet's life.

We are joining the Sepia Saturday blog hop hosted by Ruckus the Eskie.

And the Caturday Art blog hop hosted by Athena and Marie.

We met some new friends today who stopped by and let us know we were welcome to add this post to Feline Art Friday over at Kitty Par-TAY.  To quote from their post:  "We would love to see your artwork, it doe not have to involve a cat and we would love to see your cat or other animal related post."  So we joined them.  How about you?


  1. Cute pics, must be a yummy treat!
    That would've been pretty scary when all those photos went missing!

  2. Great pics! Really creative.

    Cute picture on Sam and Marcus <3

    I think the sepia is my favorite today.


  5. Thank goodness for Mr. Doug. It sounds like he really knows what he's doing when it comes to computers.

    We love that picture of Sam and Marcus. We're guessing Marcus got the treat with his tongue, too! :)

  6. We are glad Mr Doug was there to help you install the new card and back up! Computers are terrific when they work! HA! Great photos!!

  7. Very cool and thanks for reminding TW to do backup. She hasn’t done it since she’s been sick. I used the bas relief last week. They come out cool.

  8. Very cool effect on the photo! There are times when i am trying to do techie stuff on my laptop and wish that I was the dog. All Bentley does is supervise until he nods off to nap! Haha!

  9. Those were some really interesting effects. It is amazing what is possible by just a few clicks of a mouse. Did somebody say mouse? We love a good mouse. MOL. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Cslista Jo

  10. Loving the artwork. Truly special.

  11. Good luck with all that computer stuff! Great picture too - the sepia one is our favorite. That's a great shot!

  12. Paws up for Mr. Doug ! It's very impawtant to do regular backups ! Great photo of Marcus, and the original is our favorite because of the bright blue eye of Sam ! Purrs

  13. Hi Jan, love the bas relief in blue. Very creative idea. Not sure if any of my photo editing software has that one.

    Missing 700 photos would have really scared me too! Thank goodness they were still there.

    Glad your brother came by and backed up all those files.

    I lost a precious picture of Miri while having to move from one pc to another. Luckily there was still a copy of that photo at Picasa, aka Google whatever it is.

    Speaking of which, I can't find some of my photos in the Google Picasa photo area that were uploaded to blog with several years ago. They were in my photo album before. The photos show in the blog entry just fine, but not in the photo albums. And I really hate that now that everything is in Google Plus, when I go into the photo profile, it first shows my "photo highlights" vs my albums. How does that thing know what my highlights are?? Then I have to fix it to show my albums. Very unhelpful.

    That bas relief really does look good in blue.

  14. Hope you got your Happy Birthday eCard from Hallmark. For some reason they didn't send me a copy as well.

    Just let me know whenever you have time. Purrz, Katie Kat.

  15. Very cool effects!!! Love them!
