Wondering Wednesday (and Meme)

TamaraMaew was wondering what the blue box is.

Blue box

It is a Cedar Box and Bean is using it for a lamp table because the had nothing else on that side of room to set the lamp on, the all the other outlets are full. She has a picture of her grandmother on it, who pass over rainbow bridge before I was born, a bobcat curio, a candle and a vase with roses in it on there beside the lamp. The roses are made of feathers and I have to admit to attacking them now and again, which is why some of the feathers are laying loose on the box.

Under the box is a little blue throw rug. Inside the box, Bean stores the extra bed linens and the throws and fleecies when they are not in use:

snowman throw

The cedar keeps the insects out of them - we gets lots of spiders - and gives them a pleasant smell.

Next to the box is a baseball case which is actually supposed to be hanging on the wall. We have CBS house, which is really good if hurricane comes, but which makes it hard to hang things. She has to borrow the noisy, drilling machine from the neighbor to hang things, so sometimes it takes her a while to get around to it. When it gets put up, it will look something like this:

baseball case

Next to that is a really nice painting of leopards that needs to go and get reframed because it fall off the wall and glass break. I should note that sometimes, even after using the noisy drilling machine, things will fall off the wall for no good and apparent reason because the cements crumbles or something.


It is an original oil painting on canvas, but Bean did not paint it, she is pretty good artist, but not that good. Behind that is her Derek Jeter trophy pelt that also needs to go on the wall:

Jeter Jersey

Yes, I know. It amaze me that she get close enough to get the pelt off one of them too.

I’ve been tagged by Black Cat for the 7-facts meme, which I have done before, but which I will do again. Here are the rules:

* Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog;

* Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself;

* Tag 7 random people at the end of your post & include links to their blogs;

* Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

7 Random and/or Weird Facts About Me!

1. Despite the fact that I am a Florida Kitty, I HAVE seen snow. It comes in a big truck and they dump in the parking lot of the Publix SuperHunting Grounds where my Bean hunts. It stays there for maybe 2 or 3 days before it melts. Bean take me to see it last year. It is cold and wet and I think it is really overrated stuff.

2. I do not like to eat beef. Have you ever seen a cat kill a cow? Well then...

3. I have an escape proved cat harness. I have proved that I can escape it in under 5 seconds.

4. I will have lived with my Bean for three years on November 27th, which is also when I celebrate my Puuurrrthday. We will have lived in our house for 2 years in December, but the post office still have hard time find us to deliver our mail.

5. When I was learning to use the computer, I open a bunch of my Beans files and edit them while she was at work. Happily - for her - I had not learned how to save them yet.

6. I do not cough up hairballs much. I am shorthaired cat and my Bean brushes me regularly.

7. These are my kittens:


The last ones I had I groomed so much they fall apart. Bean bring these home, but she put them on shelf where I can't get at them!!! How I supposed to take care of them???

Just about everyone has done this me-me before, I but I would like to see my Xanga friends Pepper the Cheetah, Misty Whispurrs, B.J. & Little Bit, Tinkerbell, and Putter do it. And anyone else who want to do it too.

What cute kittens! I think you need to jump up there so you can take care of them. How cute you must have been grooming your other ones.

What pretty birds on your cedar box, and the painting of the big kitties is amazing.

Has Jeter Harris seen your Derek Jeter pelt?? He is a HUGE fan!

Our Mommy has a box almost just like that one! She loved it and we think it is still at our Nana's house.
