Weekend Fun & Flowers

   Hey! Did y’all miss us yesterday? We had some heavy rains during the day on the Fourth of July which caused the cancellation of the holiday parades and concerts. The sun came out in the late afternoon, so we went to our son’s house for ribs. When we arrived home that evening, no power! I didn’t have a post scheduled and the power did not come back on until after 3:00a.m. I will share that post next week. We are also happy to report that all of our neighbors (except for 2) obeyed the no fireworks rule. It was a MUCH quieter holiday.
   Today, we are joining 15 and Meowing along with Four-Legged Furballs for Friendly Fill-Ins. Be sure to hop over and visit everyone participating.
• When it is hot, I like to stay inside where it is not hot! Bentley on the other paw loves the heat!
I am looking forward to barbecuing this month.
Click Happy for some Barking from the Bayou fun!
The theme song of my life would be Happy.
• There is no such thing as an ugly puppy or kitten.

  1. We are so happy that your power is back and your flowers are just beautiful! Our favorite pic is the cheerful sunflowers☺ And we loved your HAPPY dance, guys!

  2. We did wonder what happened to you yesterday. Glad you are alright and had a quiet 4th. Ours was super noisy, so Bailie was a complete mess, and we anticipate it again through the weekend. Not fun.

  3. We loved the picture of the great sunflower forest. Hope you pups didn't get lost in there! We had perfect weather on the 4th. Yesterday, it was another story: big thunderstorms and torrential rain!

  4. I'm glad you had a quieter 4th of July, but so sorry about all that rain! Isn't it crazy, so much rain all around the country. The worst part for us is all the wretched humidity we are having on the East coast - in NY we didn't have any rain but the heat is awful - my plants are all wilting! It's supposed to cool down Saturday so we wait with baited breath for that to happen....!

  5. ooooooooooooooooooooooooohh we are smiling big time at your answers and the flowers are stunning. Thank goodness things are back to normal with your power.
    Hugs madi and mom

  6. Wow, Bentley and Pierre you guys look great in the sunflower picture. Such an awesome photo. It has been quite hot and humid up here, happy to hear you guys had a nice 4th of July. Thanks for the share.

  7. We never have rain in the summer so we enjoyed reading about yours.

  8. What beautiful flowers and your fill-ins were great!

  9. Love your flowers and fil-ins. Happy is the best theme song ever! I bet a LOT of doggies would choose that one.

    Love and licks,

  10. Lvoe those flowers! Sorry about losing your power...but at least it's back now!

  11. Beautiful sunflowers and tulips. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I completely agree with #4. Have a nice weekend! XO

  12. i sure wish we had a no fireworks rule, we still have them...all weekend long. Those flowers sure are pretty!

  13. Oh my whiskers Bentley!
    We felines do not enjoy that much heat!

  14. Your flowers are absolutely beautiful. I especially love the pink roses.

    Have a blessed weekend. :)

  15. How we would love to have a no fireworks law around here.

  16. Great pictures! The sunflowers form a jungle!

  17. Glad most of your neigbors didnt set off fireworks

  18. Wow, your sun flowers are fabulous! Enjoy the can have it! We're excitedly waiting for autumn ourselves. 77 days and counting. 😁

  19. Glad all is OK. So sorry to hear you lost power. Those sunflowers are awesome!

  20. Bessie and Bentley would sure would get a long grr-eat, 'cause Bessie likes to lounge in the sun, too. When she gets too hot she moves to the grass in the shade to cool off just to return to the sun again! Silly doggies. Winks. Mom wants to give Bentley a big kiss on his head (so does Bessie)! -Valentine (& Mom) of Noir Kitty Mews

  21. You sure had an eventful Independence Day! I'm glad everything has settled down now. And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! I am just like you when it comes to #1. Like Bentley, though, my pup Astrid seems to enjoy sitting out in the heat. She does not like to get hot when out on a walk, understandably, but she will sit out in the yard and refuse to come inside even on a 90°F or nearly 100°F day. And I agree 1000% on #4. I have never met a kitty or puppy that doesn't make me ooh and aww. Have a beautiful day!

  22. We're glad your 4th was quieter, but sorry about all that crazy rain! Our heat wave finally ended so we've been much more comfortable here.
    I always love seeing those sunflowers and tulips!!
