Slice of Cat-urday

This big tree stands in our backyard. It may be older than Tommy, even BEFORE dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Tommy, being the human she is, thought it was just a BIG tree. Turns out it's a pecan tree. I'm not sure what pecans are, but they sure make Tommy jolly. The pecan tree has green things hanging on it. Tommy thought they might be some kinda of flower...

The humans, who Tommy works with, laughed alot until they realized Tommy really didn't know what these were. They told her, "Ya gotta be a Texan to know this stuff." Which of course Tommy declared, "I'm from Iowa. We have walnuts!" Anyway, the humans told Tommy pecans live in these things, until they turn black and fall to the ground. Like alot of them are on the ground now. Tommy says she plans to pick up some today (sure she will). Then the humans told Tommy when the black ones open the pecan will be ready. Ready for what? Pies. That's why Tommy's happy. She bakes pies. Some humans want her to make Holiday pies for them. And now this pecan can be added to Tommy's pie list.
My Daddy Peyton's face is the double crust for all of our thoughts....

Pie without tuna, chicken or Friskies Party Mix is no pie at all--
Alas, who really cares?
Happy Saturday!

Double wow. A great big tree to climb AND it drops stuff to play with. That's what we call: cat paradise.

Mom grew up with a walnut tree in her yard, but they were wormy.

The walnut trees were down the street from Tommy. She would just kick and try to squish them. Guess she didn't have much to do....
