Sparks - positivity


Some days it is difficult to have a positive attitude, but I try not to complain and always believe in silver linings.

This is another of Dad Tom’s photos. In fact, I used it in its original form for a Spark in June. This version was “artified” using the Phoenix effect from Picas.

In case you are not a sports fan and thus unfamiliar with Wade Boggs, here’s a little information. Wade Anthony Boggs is a former American professional baseball player (third baseman). His career lasted 18 years. He played primarily for the Boston Red Sox but also for the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Devil Rays. While with the Yankees, Boggs won the 1996 World Series against the Atlanta Braves. He was with the Devil Rays when he reached 3,000 hits. You can learn more about him here.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”

I am also joining the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. I think this butterfly and art deserve an “awww.” Click on their badge to join.

Sunday Selfies: Week #218


"Twofur" Sunday Selfie


It would appear as if one of our selfie participants today was less than willing to participate. But actually, Mau is just miffed at Astrid for trying to cram into Dad Tom’s lap with him. She loves Mau and will take any opportunity to get close to him.

When I suggested a selfie, Astrid, was all ready to go, but Mau preferred to sulk. Sorry, Allie!

Blog Hop

Now it’s time to share your selfie and hop with us. Here are those hopping tips that we post each week.

  • The link to add your selfie to the hop is below.
  • You also will find below the code to use if you’d like the hop to appear on your blog.
  • Posting on Sundays is not necessary to join.
  • You do not need to be a cat to enter. All anipals are welcome regardless of species.
  • The hop remains open for entries through Thursday midnight.
  • Please be so kind as to display our badge and/or link to The Cat on My Head.
  • Take the opportunity to visit some of the other hop-alongs and make some new friends or reconnect with some old ones.


I am just going to mention this one last time. If you are using Blogger as the platform for your blog, and your Comments setting is “embedded,” we can no longer comment on your posts. If you want to check out what setting you have, go to Settings › Posts and Comments. Under Comments check out the location of your comments function. There are four options:

  • embedded
  • full page
  • pop-up window
  • hide

If your Comments function is set to embedded, would you please reset to full page and let us know so we can try to comment.

If you are not interested in receiving our comments, don’t worry about it.

Wishing everyone an easy and restful Sunday.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday We always look forward to Thursday and the challenge of writing a poem to accompany the inspiration photo selected by Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats). This week it was particularly fun, as our humans enjoy doing exactly what the family in this photo is doing. We’ll tell you’re about that […]

Sparks     After spending the weekend out of town with Dad Tom’s family, I wanted a Spark that represented just how happy it makes me whenever we have the opportunity to do that. As this happens infrequently, I truly do savor it, just as Cooper Murphy and Mau are savoring their time together in […]

Sunday Selfies: Week #217     It was my turn to pester Mom while she was on the computer, which meant I was coerced into doing this week’s selfie. After several attempts, I was not only getting bored but also annoyed. The selfie session ended with this raspberry. Of course, that’s the photo Mom decided […]

He has been strictly forbidden, by our current and past plumber, to touch the plumbing. However, he threw caution out with the bath water and attempted to fix the disappearing hot […]
