Fractious fractions

Hello, and welcome to The Sunday Selfies!

     We are joining The Kitties Blue, from The Cat on My Head blog, for the weekly celebration of blogs and bloggers from across the world and across the species.

     To join in, get the Linky-Link code from their website, add it to your page, and enjoy the hop!

     A link to last week's story about 'Preparations' can be found HERE.

     If you want to see some of my, or rather Mrs H's foot first Friday Foto failures, then click the link HERE.

     This week Mrs H and I had a disagreement.

     She wanted me to sit down and do some math, and I wanted to test drive a nanna which is reaching just the right stage of ripeness – not too soft and not too hard, and definitely NOT brown, MOL

     Anyways, she says I haven't got the gist of math – which is why the shopping bill is always high – and I need to recite my times tables.

     Well got as far as the one times table and then things fell apart. She says one mouse and one mouse make two mice. I, however, say that one mouse and one mouse make a light lunch and supper for one.  Clearly, I am right on this and it is Mrs H who needs to re-evaluate.

     We haven't got as far as fractions, but I am predicting it could all get a bit messy!

     Thank you for visiting this week, and I hope you enjoyed this week's mini disagreement and my selfie. If any of you have the same sort of issues; be it subtraction of treats, multiplying of naps, or just plain ol' division of labour, please leave your findings in the comments below.

     To see what our international blogging pals have been up to this week, be it quadratic equations (I think that's crossing all four paws at once), multiple-choice suppers, or chasing a Pythagoras snake, please click the links below, and enjoy the Hop!

ERin's November Photo Fails¿!!!

Welcome to the 'Pet Photo Fails' blog Hop!!!

     Welcome one and all to what Mrs H has informed me is NOT the Sunday Selfies, rather the Pet Photo Fails Blog Hop!

      The awesome Melissa's Mochas, Mysteries and Meows have kindly taken over this once a month hop from our dearly departed friend, Roby Sweet of the Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles AKA The Old SoLT, as Miss C liked to call her.

     On the last Friday of the month, we get together to share Mrs H's not so talented photographic efforts. And whilst I do or should fall in the pictures, I frequently don't. Any failures are therefore NOT of my making, and I blame Mrs H fairly and squarely (with the occasional round and wobbly bit) for every mishap, shake and overexposure, MOL.

September's rather splendid 'All Fingers and Thumbs' Photo Fails can be found HERE.
October's digital pedal footwear based Photo Fails can be found HERE.

And now this months selection:

     I'm sorry to say that Mrs H has once more been caught taking pictures of random pieces of carpet. Now given we do not have that much carpet in the Palace, I do think maybe there is a much deeper thing going on here; maybe some cotton-acrylic twist pile fetish?  Only kidding, Mrs H may love housework, but NOT to that extent. MOL

     This is a rather rare shot of my midriff. Now I have to explain that I am not sleeping in this shot. In actuality, I was doing another of my DIY for Cats videos. Here I can be seen showing the correct position for inspecting under a chest of draws, and the benefits of using a newspaper to not only protect the fur from any dust – should there be any – but also as a feline style crawler board that can slip along the carpet.

     Half a sixpence may be better than a penny, farthing or none – to borrow from the song, but when it comes to felines and photographing the head of the household, I really do think the whole, or at least the head, is better than the half, especially the back half?

     And finally, I give you what has to be quite literally 'A Shot in the Dark.'

     This is one, believe it or not, shows me meeting and greeting some feline Halloween Treat or Treaters. Sadly for Mrs H, her photographic ambition was thwarted by the absence of daylight, a flash, and the fact I was far too far away. Apart from that, I think she did — Heck, is that the time? I really must be going. Time really does go so quickly these days.

     Well, that's enough Photo Fails from Mrs H and me. I do hope you enjoyed them and they brought a smile to your day. It just remains for me to say:


Go on, now show us YOUR Photo Fails!

     Please do hop around all this month's star failures and have a bit of fun and laughs on us, after all, THAT is what it's all about :)
