Mommy went around the house this morning taking these photos from different angles in the house I share with her and Daddy. I thought I'd share with you the results of Mommy's morning photo shoot. Hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving with your family and friends! Until next time stay Purrfect just the way you are!!! ~ Robert

Hi there! Today is an overcast, windy day. But that's OK because I am inside where it is warm and cozy.

Today I thought I'd share with you some photos of an old car that Daddy took at a farm near where we live. There are a lot of these old treasures dotting groves near farmsteads along the countryside here in Northwest Iowa.

So, anyway, thought I'd share this little blast from the past with you. Hope you have a delightful day! ~ Robert

Hi there! Hope you are having a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog. Today I thought I'd share with you a photo of the darling little church pew that is at the top of the open stairway at the house I share with my Daddy and Mommy. This church pew originally came from a Lutheran Church in Webb, Iowa and was used by the minister to sit in when other things were going on during the Sunday service like the choice singing and stuff. Basically he sat in this pew when he wasn't preaching during the Sunday morning services. Now at our house, Mommy has placed two of her antique Swedish Bibles on top of it that date back to the early 1800s. She has also added a colorful quilted bench pillow to add charm to the church pew. See the photo below ...

The picture on the floor next to the church pew is of Mommy and Daddy in Lake Tahoe right before they boarded the Tahoe Queen boat to go cruising around the lake on. See a close-up of the photo below ... As you can see, it was a windy day ...

Enjoy your day and thanks again for stopping by. Check back again soon for more updates ...

Hi there! Today I thought I'd share with you some photos of the sofa Mommy got at an estate auction recently. It is very cozy and comfy. I think it is a really good napping couch, myself.

The skies are bright and sunny on this first day of November. I'm planning on basking in the sun on the formal living room love seat, and occasionally watching birds play in the front yard from my inside window perch. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! ~ Robert
