A Foursome! Oo-er!

First, I am loving the Paralympics – so much drama!!! The biggest one so far is South African Pistorious missing out on the 200m Gold as Brazilian Oliveira pips him to the finishing line and now there are complaints! Wow!

Second, my little camera disk is full and as I’ve not got a new one, here is a substitute pic of Charlie done just now! LOL!

Thank you to lovely ManxMnews for introducing me to this wonderful fun thing to do!

Third, the first episode in the new series of Dr Who absolutely ROCKED!!!

Fourth, I think I’ve got something to submit to the flash fic contest I blogged about here (and many others fab bloggers blogged about too!) – but I think it still reads like pants so am gonna spend this week tweaking! I hope you are all writing your stories too! Yay!

So see you all soon! Happy September!

Charlie looks... different. Did you give him a bath?

mshatch said...

cute piccie! Although not quite as cute as the real thing...

Good luck with tweaking :)

Jemi Fraser said...

Hard to believe September is here!!

Between prepping for the school year that starts on Tues and watching the US Open (I'm a huge tennis nut!!) I've missed a lot. Can't wait to see the Dr Who episode!

Mark said...

Hehe even as an animated avatar Charlie looks as cute as ever. He actually looks more mischievous like that. The new Doctor Who did indeed rock too. Yay :D

Deborah said...

Happy September my friend!!
xxoo

Eileen said...

Haven't seen any of the Paralympics, probably because of time change and they're not showing it when I'm awake. Glad you are enjoying though.

Good luck with your writing!

Jackee said...

Ooh! Congrats on the flash fic entry. And I LOVE that drawing of Charlie. So like him. :o)

Nerissa said...

And a wonderfully happy September to you, too! purrs

Adam said...

You're like my mom, she never deletes photos off her SD card. I use FB for backup of my family photos, but she spends a good bit on memory.

Jay Paoloni said...

I'm afraid i like the real Charlie better. Happy September to you!

Helena said...

I am in awe of all those paraOlympians!

No doubt your flash fic entry will astound and amaze me! I'll be checking it out. Sadly, I'm never organized enough to enter anything on time. Sigh. But you and Charlie rock!

Lynda R Young said...

oh! oh! I'm sooo looking forward to the new Dr Who episodes. I think I have to wait for 2 weeks here in Oz before they'll show it. RAWR!

Charlie's portrait is gorgeous!

Simon Kewin said...

Darn, haven't worked on an entry for that competition. But I'm really looking forward to watching Dr. Who!

fairyhedgehog said...

It's a great picture but I missed seeing a Charlie photo!

I haven't started writing yet, so I'm not sure I can get past the "pants" stage in time!

Fuzzy Tales said...

The Paralympics aren't even shown here, as far as I can see, though there's on-line coverage. CTV is the network that covered the regular Olympics, but they don't seem to be doing much for the Paralympics. I'd like to see that change--athletes are athletes and it's exciting to watch, period.

Charlie's avatar is adorable, well done!

Good luck with your tweaking. :-)

The Furries of Whisppy said...

You did a fine job with Charlie's avatar. :)

Kat_RN said...

Charlie is Beautiful in every form! Great picture, you are talented in many ways.
Cheers,
Kat

Ginger Jasper said...

Lots of good things going on there my friend. Love the avitar.. The paralympics are amazing I agree and quite puts a lump in the throat to see just how amazing they are. Hugs GJ xx

Madeleine Maddocks said...

I miss seeing Charlie. The pic looks like Charlie's girlfriend. I hope you get your pics sorted soon. Yes we watched Doc Who too. The chilling realisation that she was a Dalek was awesome. I admit I still miss David Tennant though.

Good luck with flash entry. I'm writing suspence thrillers at the moment...

Mr Puddy said...

Charlie !!, you look difference !!! MOL
I hope you are good, long time no see
Miss you my friend

Hilary said...

you filled up your camera disk? wow, that is a lot of pictures!

Medeia Sharif said...

Happy writing and tweaking.

That's a handsome pic, but nothing compares to the real Charlie. ;)

Pk Hrezo said...

Oh how did you get that little graphic of Charlie?? I need to learn how to do that. Of course, nothing can take the place of our handsome Charlie in the fur and flesh. ;)
Good luck with the contest!

Janet Johnson said...

Love the substitute picture! And I need to brush up on Paralympics happenings. Sounds exciting! :)

Best of luck with your flash fiction piece!

Carolyn Abiad said...

Ooh! An avatar for Charlie. He's handsome. :)

Clarissa Draper said...

I love the Charlie photo! And I missed the Olympics but I've heard it's special.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Glad to hear you enjoyed Dr Who - Mum forgot it was on and so she missed it!! Are you going to get a new disc for your pictures Jenn - we would hate not to see Charlie's handsome face and whiskers.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Esme said...

Wow you have started off to a busy September-I like this design you have done of Charlie. very regal for such a charming boy. Enjoy your Monday-here in N. America it is a holiday today-love starting the working week with Monday off.

Ellie Garratt said...

Such drama at the Paralympics. Talk about a sour loser. I think he's apologised now though.

Charlie looks a changed cat. LOL.

Get that flash fiction piece submitted. I bet it's perfect!

~*Connie*~ said...

lol@Doctor Who. I liked it too, I was a little annoyed they split Amy and Rory up, those two did not need that. I referenced The Silence in referring to the kittens on Facebook, it is nice to find another cat loving Whovian.

Brian said...

I love, love, love that Charlie avatar!

Repositório said...

Happy September too!

Soggibottom said...

Oh, a pic of young Charlie, I have a pic that Karina drew of me too..
Thank you by the way X
Luvs Freya Rose Blossom.. DR WHO ?

Tamago said...

Sounds like you are enjoying Paralympics! And Dr Who. I've never seen this but seems interesting.
I love the picture of cartoon Charlie! So cute!!

The Golden Eagle said...

I love the picture. Though I hope we get to see the real Charlie again soon. :)

KarenMcG said...

What a cute pic of Charlie. Have fun tweaking.

klahanie said...

Old Kitty and Charlie!
Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star and me, a mere human, are enjoying the Paralympics.
We are letting Penny take over most of the writing. She does so much better than me. Perhaps Charlie could do a guest posting on your site. What do you reckon?

Lydia Kang said...

I know, so much drama at the paralympics, right?

Katie and Glogirly said...

Love the cute avatar! They are so fun!

I don't think we're able to get the paralympics here either. I remember some of the amazing disabled athletes they were featuring on TV during the regular olympics. ...SO inspiring.

Happy Labor Day!
; ) Katie & Glogirly

meowmeowmans said...

That's a great avatar, Charlie!

Glad to hear the first episode of Dr. Who was so good! :)

Oui Oui said...

Those kitty avatars are so fun & cute!

Patsy said...

Happy September to you and Charlie (My what big eyes he has!)

Hart Johnson said...

Ha! Love the pic of Charlie. I really should watch some of the paralympics--so inspiring. Good luck with the flash fiction thing! D'oh! I don't think we get the Dr. Who here until winter, but I will look...

Jennifer Shirk said...

Ha! That pic cracked me up!

Athena said...

I like the picture very much. Happy September to you too!

The Teacher's Pets said...

I love the avatar too! Very cute!

Justine Dell said...

Someone is trying to get me to watch Dr. Who. Is it good? I heard it's good. I guess there's a few seasons I would have to catch up on first. ;-)

~JD

Susan Fields said...

Good luck getting your story into shape! My niece was trying to explain Dr. Who to me - I think I'll need to watch it myself.

Maria McKenzie said...

Love Charlie's new photo! My kids might like the new Dr. Who. Will have to check it out--and good luck with your flash fiction piece:).

Teresa Ashby said...

Happy September to you!

I found I was watching Dr Who with my eyes like saucers - which makes a change from squinching them up :-) xx

Cheri said...

Love the avatar - we have to figure out how to do this.

Katie Isabella said...

Hello sweet furriend. How glad I am to see that you too made the lovely avi. Charlie has the most strikingly handsome pattern and coloration. xoxoxox

Romance Book Haven said...

A ParaOlympian from Fiji put his country in the spotlight!

It was all over the news.

Love to Charlie!

We are in love with the avatar! It's pawsome ;)

Theresa Milstein said...

That is NO substitute for Charlie!

Good luck with your flash fiction piece.

Happy week!

Au and Target said...

Dr Who? Wow! We are sooo behind here in Malaysia!

Au and Target said...

PS how's Charlie? And how are his teeth?

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Old Kitty .. didn't see the new Dr Who - but no doubt I'll catch some of it soon!

Charlie reinvented - now that's something ... I haven't a clue what to do with my Camera card - an Autumn challenge to resolve this time!!

So much going on .. and I love what I see of the Parlympics - difficult to keep track of it all ... very interesting debates coming out and also bringing disability out into the open so much - it is incredible and I am in awe of those 'guys' ..

Good luck with your tweaking .. cheers Hilary

Cezar and Léia said...

Talli Roland said...

I'm loving the Paralympics, too! I'm impressed with all the coverage C4 is giving to it. I'm so disappointed with Pistorius' attitude towards the Brazilian - I thought he was a better sportperson than that!

cleemckenzie said...

Will the real Charlie please stand up? Lovely avatar for a lovely feline.

Those Paralympics are amazing!

LTM said...

Hey! That's a great picture of Charlie! :D Have fun watching the olympics and writing! I'm trying to get some work done--LOL! :D <3

LynNerdKelley said...

I've never watched the Paralympics. That's great that you're enjoying watching it so much. Best wishes with your flash fiction entry! Take care. My dogs way woof woof, Charlie. "Want to try one of our biscuits?"

DWei said...

If you ask me, that cat looks much to happy to be Charlie.

Charlie always looks kind of grumpy in the pictures I've seen. :P

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Did Charlie go to the fair and get a characture (sp?) done?

Thanks so much for always sharing when you know of a contest or open submissions. :)

Best wishes with your entry!

Julia Hones said...

Good luck with that contest Old Kitty! What a challenge!

Jayne said...

I love that pretty picture of Charlie! (Sorry, Charlie - handsome, I meant, of course!) The Paralympics has been amazing - wish I'd seen more events. Luckily there is always catch up on TV - I'm always having to catch up with everything!

Ann Best said...
