Frankly Freddie – No Trick, All Treat

It’s that time of year when my human-beings buy bags of candy in the pretext of passing it out on Halloween. Then they close all the curtains, turn off the lights and eat the candy themselves.

It’s also that time of year when Peggy & Judy revel in all things “gastly and ghoulish” but cover it up by only publicly displaying their drawings that are “sweet & lovable”

I’m putting their artistic endeavors up for sale on 

 Zazzle.com/catnipblog

“True Love is Seen Through the Heart” MUGS and More

All the proceeds go to buying me my own halloween treats which I shall eat on Halloween with the curtains closed and the lights out.

All the designs are on

  • Cups
  • Napkins
  • Paper plates
  • Mugs
  • AND special order (like t-shirts for real kids and adult kids)

Please buy a lot of these things because all we get is 5% of the sale and that doesn’t buy a lot of treats (human or canine).

Frankly,

Freddie Parker Westerfield, HMS

Head of Marketing & Sales

Pawsitively Tuesday – Witch is true friendship?

True friendship is seen through the heart

not the eyes

 Zazzle.com/catnipblog

HELP!!!  Peggy & I need a vacation – preferably a world cruise. 

All our Halloween products are for sale on Zazzle and we get 5% commission.  At that rate, we figure instead of cruising around the world we’ll have to settle on cruising around the block.  But we are so excited about how our drawings look on REAL stuff we want you to take a look.  (There’s no pressure to buy since we won’t be looking over your shoulder . . . )  

Tell a friend too . . . our cars need gasoline to cruise.

  1. I assigned every person who commented or “followed” a number.
  2. A random number generator on the Web gave me 3 numbers.
  3. I matched the randomly generated numbers to potential winners AND

Healing a broken heart, Part III – PUTTING THE LOSS BEHIND YOU

When you have discovered what there is to learn, it is time to put the loss behind you. Here are some ways to re-focus.

1. CREATE A Goodbye RITUAL
Create a way to say goodbye to your old feelings. I say set aside, not discard, because everything in your life is a resource and you may want to draw upon this resource sometime in the future. My ritual was to gather all objects, letter and notes that reminded me of the relationship, put them in a large box, and store them in the attic. Other people have written things on paper and then burned the paper.

2. TURN TO NATURE

Nature Heals by Peggy

Getting out into nature helps you gain perspective. There is wonder and beauty in nature. Look up to the stars, out to the sea and watch the sun give life to the trees, plants, flowers and you!  It’s simply  there for you to notice.  Take a walk by water and feel the release of the endorphins.  Read Falling Water Boosts Your Mood.

3. REPLACE WHAT YOU HAVE LOST
Your loved one played several roles in your life, and you can replace them.  And the “replacement” need just with just one person.  Volunteer, enlarge your circle of friends, stretch yourself and do things alone, take dancing lessons, learn to play a musical instrument, travel

4. KNOW YOU CAN ALWAYS HAVE LOVE IN YOUR LIFE . . .

Love a Hug by Peggy

. . .  because you know how to GIVE love.

Positively Tuesday – Regrets for growing old?

My dad traveled the world: Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan. and Tahiti where he found his 3rd wife.   Hawaii was one place he returned to often and where he lived  the last few years of his life.  He died at 93, blessed to live a long life and see the world.

Dad loved wine, so maybe its reputation for adding years to ones life is deserved.

My Father’s 93rd birthday

I’ll raise a glass of wine (and have a bit of chocolate) to my dad for inheriting his love of travel and, hopefully, long-lived genes.
