Behold The Cuteness!

That’s Marco, named after Marco Scutaro, currently of the San Francisco Giants. He was born June 1 and was 7 weeks old on Saturday. He came to live with us yesterday.

We set his carrier on the floor in the living room and Kaline was the first to inspect. I gave her a treat so she’d come closer and I put a treat in the carrier. Even the soft treats Marco has to bite into small pieces so he can chew them. While he worked on his Kaline ate hers. Then she went right up to the carrier to give him a sniff…and a couple hisses and a growl. He backed into the carrier a little but didn’t hiss back. She went farther back and settled on the floor to just watch him, but without more growls, for now anyway. Carla came down watched him a little, ate her treats and ran upstairs. I guess she’s letting Kaline speak for them both. The initial look-see went well.

Now Marco is in his room for the acclimation process. He’s still kitten-climbing on things, not jumping yet, but for a small kitten, it’s still a big room! I’ll keep you updated on the girls and their new little brother.

Monday Quiz About Me is hosted by Acting Balanced and Touristic.

1. Wednesday, July 24th is Drive Thru day - do you have any drive thrus that you have a hard time passing?

Baskin Robbins

2. Other than signing your name, when was the last time you physically wrote something?

When I went in for my eye exam last Thursday they handed me a clipboard with a form to update. I can pretty much guarantee that the illegible information is probably useless to them. Yeesh!

3. What was the first movie you saw in a movie theater? the latest one?

I have no Idea what the first one was! The first movie theater movie I vividly recall was when Dave and I were 6 and 7, well I really remember the car ride before the movie. We were all in the car for a ride and Dave and I asked Pop where we were going. “Timbuktu!” he said. That lead into a discussion of where Timbuktu was.  We wondered how we’d get to Africa in the car and decided Daddy was definitely not driving to Timbuktu. Our drive ended at the movie theater where Disney’s animated Robin Hood was playing. What a fun surprise! I recall Pop having a craving for Butter Pecan after the movie so there was a Basking Robbins stop involved too.

The last movie I saw was 42, an awesome movie. I saw that with Sheri when she was on vacation. She came and picked me up and we did movie and lunch.

4. Have you ever visited Disney?

Nope, not any of them. We saw our share of Disney movies as kids, but we were really more raised with Bugs Bunny and Warner Brothers.

And now my question for you to answer…

5. What is a favorite food you eat in the summer that you don’t any other time?

For me it’s gazpacho. I love the chunky fresh tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and spices in a tasty chilled soup. Once the days get cooler, I prefer a warmer hearty soup.

Boiled peanuts are a southern summer favorite around here.

When i was little and my Dad took us for a drive he told he was taking us to Kakabeeka Falls. I was married and traveling out west with my hubby when I discovered it actually is a place in Northern Ontario and it is beautiful.
I only eat corn on the cob in the summer time. Bring on the butter!

Oh my, I just love Marco!!!!!!! What a cutie!

I don't remember the first movie we ever saw, but it may have been at the Strand Theatre in Quincy, MA. Back when I was little, we had movie premiers, and the movie stars were there live on the stage. I know for sure that we got to see Betty Grable and Clark Gable in person. She was there for the movie "The Perils of Pauline". I'm not sure what Clark Gable's movie was. I was just a little girl and this was back in the early to mid 40's.

You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Kabobs - we usually just can't do that in the winter here.

Tomato and cheese sandwiches with mayo.

It's always summer here so we just eat everything and don't distinguish between seasons LOL.

I love boiled edamame, or green soy beans, which I eat only in the summer.

I pretty much eat every all year round. There really isn't much difference most of the time. I mean I guess grilled items more so since I'm not willing to stand out in the winter to grill anything.
