Is This Tomato Heaven?

Romas and Cherry Tomatoes (2)

My tomato plants are having a moment!

Especially the romas and cherry tomatoes.

It’s like all of them suddenly ripened overnight. BOOM! I’ve got a bumper crop.

I just picked these, and I seriously cannot wait to eat them. :)

I feel this way sometimes…

OK, all the time.

A gift from my little brother.

Ha! He knows me so well.

Have you ever done any sort of genealogy research into your background to find out more about where you came from? Tabs actually did some of that this weekend, and what we found was fascinating! — although not altogether a surprise.

Apparently, Tabs comes from a long line of kitty models and entertainers, like his great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather cat, Franklin, who starred in one of the very first print ads for feline cosmetics. Catex Claw Polish and Nosetints were all the rage among fashionable felines in the late 1930s and ’40s.

No kidding, but we found evidence of his feline family ties working in the kitty modeling business from the ’20s through the ’70s, but that’s when the trail went dry… It seems that his ancestors got out of kitty modeling for a while, for some reason, and went into the shipping business.

Weird…

I don’t know if you’re into this kind of thing, but if you are, here are some of the vintage kitty modeling advertisements we found. :)

Tabby in the Garden

Published in: Daily Photo

I spent my afternoon 10-minute break chillin’ with your kitty nephew and a camera at the local salad bar, aka “the deck garden.”

Saw a couple of new tomatoes and a bell pepper.

Exciting times, my friend… Exciting times. :)

The Monkey Flower Group

Peach, Pink and orange flowers from The Monkey Flower Group in Napa (2)

After our anniversary dinner up in Napa the other night, El Hub and I walked around the Oxbow Public Market, which is like a fancy Wine Country food court and gift shopping area, where I saw this lovely little flower cart by The Monkey Flower Group.

It was in the evening around 8, so the cart was unmanned (no monkeys either), but the flowers were still on display.

Now I know who to call for cute floral arrangements in Napa if I ever need them. I’ll call The Monkey Flower Group. :)
