Today We Are Ish

Cyndi:  Before we do our post, we need to tell you we have not been beating up Jan.  She has been busy beating up herself..We are innocent.  See my halo?  Wait.  It must have fallen off when Marcus body slammed Sam into me.

Micah:  This is true.  Somehow Jan managed to bruise the back of one hand some days ago and now it hurts. Wonder why it has taken so long for the pain to reach her brain?  She claims it's because her brain has been too full of things to do.

Cameron:  Yesterday she was running around like a crazy person, as she started clearing and moving furniture in the bedroom.  She took a big pedestal fan apart but the pole slipped and took a chunk out of her finger.  So her left hand now sports a big bandage.

Sam:  This is what happens when she starts cleaning.  Any wonder cleaning is sporadic around here?  I think she needs to hire a housekeeper. 

Rusty:  I think she needs to hire a keeper.  Or at least someone with two hands to feed us.

Merci, Sam & Marcus
Buddy:  We looked soulful (glared) until Jan agreed to do a Caturday Art picture for us. This is called HDR-ish.  HDR is High Definition Range and is made with layered multiple exposures of the same scene.  This is "ish" made in Picasa of only one layer. 

Merci:  Here we are in sepia.  I don't know why Marcus is glaring.  He loves sepia.  It reminds him of dirt.

Marcus:  This is an illusion.  It doesn't exist until tomorrow, which is black and white Sunday.  I'm kidding.  We're just posting it early with the other versions.

Percy:  This is the original.  Notice how dark Marcus has become over time.  He used to have a dark face with a lighter body, but guess he's been rolling in the Georgia red clay long enough he's changed color.

Marcus:  You shouldn't tell readers that.  They'll believe you.

Percy:  Don't worry, Marcus, I was joking.  You aren't red.  You're dark dirt.

Sam:  Our dog costume giveaway entry ended at midnight last night. The winners will be announced Sunday.

  1. We're so sorry Jan got hurt. That's always happening to our Mom too. Silly hoomins. PS: We like the Halloween design!

  2. We enjoyed all your photo art and sure do hope Jan will be okay... but we agree, it's probably a sign from above to stop cleaning or to hire a housekeeper!

    Purrs from the Zee and Zoey Gang!

  3. Peeps are SO delicate... they seem to always be getting cut scraped sprained or bruised... WE think it is beclaws they don't grow good furs to pawtect themselves. BUTT we could be wrong.
    Sorry your Jan is injured.

    We can't wait to see who WINS the clawstoom.
    Last year when we did this... Angus Mac won OUR Free Clawstoom and he got a Golfer Clawstoom.

  4. Humans do seem to be fragile. Hope yours is better soon. Great art today. I like seeing all the variations.

  5. Sorry your human got hurt cleaning.

    We love your photos!

    Purrs xx

  6. Love them all! Hope no one was injured during cleaning!

  7. We think all of your photos are terrific and we are so sorry that Jan hurt her hand. WE hope it's all better now.

  8. OUCH! Poor Jan!!!
    I do love that first photo especially!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  9. I think y'all should consider wrapping Jan in bubble wrap. Not only would it be fun, but she couldn't keep having "accidents."

  10. We hope your mom heals quickly. Having injured hands is no fun.

    The different photos are all so interesting. If the sepia version was a little grainier it would look like an old-time photo. But now I'm getting a little uncomfortable with all those doggies staring at me so I must hop to the next blog.

  11. Ouch for your mom, my finger hurts at the thought of the fan taking a part. Please stop by 15andmeowing for a giveaway today.

  12. Clumsy humans...mine is always smooshing something or other!


  13. My momma's always bruisin herself wif no clue how she did it.

  14. Hi there!

    Thanks for joining Ruckus & Earl and Ethel for Sepia Saturday!!

    Lots of Woofs from Earl, Ethel and I at Earl's World!

  15. We can never figure out why humans keep cleaning things, they are so accident prone they should probably not move except to feed us.

  16. The photos are beautiful. They all radiate a different atmosphere. Hope Jans hand will heal soon. Pawkisses for Happy Weekend :)

  17. Oh no, we hope Jan gets better soon ! Nice Caturday art ! Purrs

  18. Now y'all are supposed to be taking care of Jan so she doesn't get hurt. We like your illusion and it will look great tomorrow!

  19. I like that HDR. Is that someone’s initials? MOL!

  20. Hi Y'all!

    Sorry your Human is injured. What are y'all doing to take care of her? Y'all know that's your job don't you?

    Y'all hurry on by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  21. Sending hugs to Jan. those pictures look pretty cool
    Lily & Edward

  22. Oh, fur sure! We know how it goes. Meowmy/Growlmy is full of scars, old and some fresh; bruises and aching joints all from self bashing during work or chores.
    The peeps who look after us need to be wrapped in Bubble Wrap! Tee-hee.

    Nice effects with the picture!

  23. Dark Dirt - BOL! We love that! Better keep an eye on Jan!

    Your pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
