Our Birthday Month

My birthday and Lee's birthday are both in the month of July.
So we just take one day all day to be together and celebrate in that month.
I, Sweet William The Scot, got Lee these flowers.
Now I have to clear my throat to sing Lee a birthday song.
Aroooo Happy Birthday to you Arooooo!
Why this bouquet has a cabbage plant in the center.
Never saw that before.
I got Lee a card with a Scottie Dog on the front.
Lee's friend got us this cake to enjoy.
Okie Dokie I am done with the picture taking.
Cut the cake NOW!
Lee and I always pay it forward somehow during our birthday month.
This year we gave money to have a feral cat neutered, yep Lee called them and gave them our plastic card number.  Last year we gave our plastic number to Scottie Rescue. 
Wonder what we will do next year.

Scoot Scooter He Lost His Balls

 
 I, Sweet William The Scot, have been chasing down Scooter.  Every time I  found one of his billboards by the time I went back with the camera it was down.
I knew Scooter probably would not go Global but it seems like friends out of my tri state area don't know Scooter.  Scooter got his job through the Advertising Agency Northlich branch in Cincinnati, my city.
Scooter has such a catchy ditty!
Why my city has been blitzed with television commercials and billboards by Scooter. 
So let me introduce my friend Scooter.
 Yep Scooter is my kind of CAT!
Scooter wears spectacles not testicles.  Scooter lost his balls.
And when they say Who's Your Daddy
No No It's Not Me! 
 Scooter is the hip neutered cat every Tom wants to be.
He's the coolest cat on the block.
He’s the suave neutered cat with the plan and access to a set of wheels: he calls it the Scooter Shuttle.  Why in my town Scooter provides Free Trips for Gonad Snips.
Scooter represents Ten, a movement to create a no-kill nation for cats.
The U.S. is home to an estimated 70 million homeless cats.  Each has a different story with one thing in common: an unfixed house cat.  
Every 20 minutes, an adoptable cat loses its life in a kill shelter.
No-kill shelters unfortunately become home to many.
Lee said it was hard getting me into the picture because Scooter was up so high on the building.
I had to sit on a ladder so I could be in the picture.
Yep I never thought I would have anything in common with a CAT!
But Scooter and I have a lot in common. I lost my pair of balls and I wear spectacles.
And when they asks Scottie puppies Who's Your Daddy
No No It's Not Me! 
Now are you Hip?  Have you lost your Pair of Balls? 
 
Cate Blanchett and Oscar-nominee Rooney Mara were  filming 'Carol' and
Don Cheadle has been filming 'Miles Ahead' in Cincinnati.
But, I chased down the most important one of all
Scooter The Neutered Cat.
 
After all my chasing down Scooter Billboards why this one appeared on Beechmont Avenue across from my Graeters Ice Cream Store on Saturday.
Why I, Sweet William The Scot, wish every area of the world had a Scooter.
Why do I wish such a thing, well Cats are 45 times more prolific than humans.
 
Let’s kick cat killing in the gonads, one spay/neuter at a time.
Okie Dokie here is the deal, for every comment I get today I will break my piggy bank and give a quarter up till I get enough money to send a cat on the Scooter Shuttle.

Cars Tow Mater and Old Cars

I, Sweet William The Scot, went to an Antique Car Show.
Corvette!  WOW I would look HOT driving this fancy dancy.
Why look at this beauty.  Matches my scarf of red and white. Color coordination is always good.
I think I am more interest in knowing if that old CocaCola cooler has any Coke.
 Now here is really one from the olden days, the time long past.  If I put the pedal to the medal in this one I wonder how fast I would go?
 Lee can we drive a stick??  How many miles to a gallon do you suppose this car gets.
Black no, the color would not show off my furs very well.
Oh dogs I see a canary yellow truck.  Now I got to go and check that out. 
Why I think that might be Mater from the movie "Cars".  He wanted a paint job.
You know Sir Tow Mater in "Cars" was my favorite character.  Why I watched that movie till the end.  Yep that was my kind of movie.   
Heres to me lookin at you lookin at me.
See you next week when I will have more of my Nati City to show you.

The Parade Is Coming

Lee told me it was the Fourth of July.  Why I knew that because my birthday was yesterday.  Yep you heard that right.  I was her fire cracker dud, I popped on the third of July.
Lee said there was a parade happening and did I want to go?
Okie Dokie I grabbed my leash and we were off.
Well look, to start the parade they had a Bagpiper Group.  Yep they played my theme song.
They yelled I needed my Kilt on!!
Why look how tall my Uncle Sam is!  Uncle Sam brought Miss Liberty with him. 
We have the VFW Group here.
Yep here is the Anderson Township fire department and they are blasting their sirens.
Another Bagpipe, Drum & Fife Group.
Floats and different groups throw candy to parade watchers.  I heard the children yelling candy.
Well I think I'm a child, so when the children ran to get things I ran with them!  I got one piece of candy wrapper and all.  I tried so hard when they tossed small Frisbees and balls and I thought I had one Frisbee it was coming right at me but a little boy grabbed the Frisbee.  My mouth was open and ready to catch but the boy jumped in front - NOT FAIR!
A float with a Gold Eagle.
Coming up next are Cincinnati's
 favorite characters.
Let me introduce Mr. Cincinnati Redlegs and Rosie.
They are our home team, The Big Red Machine, The Cincinnati Reds mascots.
 
 
 
Next came Buddy LaRosa, yep he and his bakers make LaRosa 's Pizza a home town favorite.
Pirate Ship the Scallywag.
Bahahaaaaaa look the woman has a leash on the van.  That van and Smart car are impersonating dogs.  That is the Clermont County Humane Society.
Look another Scottish Group swaying their kilts.
All decorated for the fourth.
Oh little Red Convertibles is Jazzi coming down the road.
No not Jazzi but the Shriners in their little Corvettes.
And we have the Anderson Park Board Represented.
Well that is just some of my July 4th Parade.
Come back next week because I have more of my Nati City to show you.

Community Garden Tour

I, Sweet William The Scot, have had to stay on the porch or inside all week.
Communities on the east side of Cincinnati have had a black bear running around.  It swam over the Ohio River and we sure hope it swims back to Kentucky soon. 
Why look at this large pigs ear, my first pigs ear ever.  Lee was in Amish Country in Adams County and got this for me because it was just freshly baked.  No Preservatives! No Additives!
Now while I chew on my treat you enjoy the pictures I took while on the Garden Tour in my Community.
This is a wonderful dappled shade garden. 
 It is a fairy garden with castle.
Wonder who lives in this tree stump house.
Over 600 Hostas and 50 varieties of ferns in this whimsical setting.
 Over two hundred cats made of wood, stone, metal and fabric throughout the garden.
Why look they are having a tea party.
This is the second garden.
 It has shrubs, dwarf conifers and perennials.
Lee loves the way the side of this shed opened up to shelves.
 This is the third garden and the newest.  Oh look at the gazebo, we would love to have a gazebo.
This garden is an eclectic mix of a formal and cottage garden.
 This home's garden was the fourth we toured.  It is an early 1800's farm home and the gardens evolved slowly.  Over three acres of garden, lawn and woods.  It has a half acre pond, weeping willows.  The old hollyhocks were not in bloom yet.
It was a mile hike back to this home and another mile back to our car.  No wonder they fed us a hot dog and a giant cookie and gave us a water bottle. So after four homes and the time spent at these four homes wondering through the gardens we never made it to the last four.
But I am glad you joined me for the tour.   
I have more to tell you about my Nati City next time.
Have a great week!
