Sunday Selfies: Week #200

This is not the Sunday Selfies post Mom had planned for today. She didn’t expect such a milestone, as 200 weeks of posting Sunday Selfies, to be so difficult. Yesterday around 5 p.m. the track pad on Mom’s laptop D-I-E-D, which meant she couldn’t even sign on to the laptop. Of course, her extended warranty is no longer valid.

Mom searched and tried everything she found on-line to get it up and working again to no avail. She did not have a mouse paired with that laptop, so switching to that was not an option. That left the iPad or her old laptop available for producing a post.

She knew the iPad would be a pain in the backside and so booted up the old laptop. It’s trackpad hasn’t worked in ages, but she did have a mouse paired with it. So that’s where I am posting from today. And I am posting an old photo for my selfie. Mom could have tried to upload some new photos, but she was so frustrated I told her not to bother.

The selfie I am sharing is from June, 2015. I posted a similar photo as a selfie three years ago. I am wearing a flower that my yet to be husband Sampy‘s mom, Emily, made for me. Now I wear a collar with rhinestone charms from Sampy. Anyhoo, here’s my selfie.

Contacting Us

The other problem with this old laptop is that e-mail doesn’t work on it. Mom’s tried to fix it over and over again, including last night, but has never been successful. If anyone needs to contact us, please use Mom’s private e-mail at She can pick that up on the phone or iPad.

Thanks for joining us today. Whether you hop every week or are a newbie, all the Kitties Blue are delighted to welcome you here.

Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid (with love and kisses for Sampy)

Wowza: 200! That’s AMAZING! You really gots your Mom wrapped around your little paws over there! My Human would never have gone to such lengths to help ME make a post. Heck, lately I was lucky if she managed once a week! The Human says nuffing is as frusterating as computers that do not do exactly what they are supposed to do when they are supposed to do it. She thinks your Mom deserves an award for persistence! Astrid looks especially nice and cheeky with her special flower today.

A million kissies to Miss Misty May XOXOXOXOXOXOXO

Re your comment on my blog. We don’t sponsor the cats individually, we sponsor the “pen” of five cats. As one gets adopted we get notified and also told about the new cat in the pen. Sadly apart from one tortie, they are all black, black and white. It seems that even in the UK where black cats are considered lucky, they still take longer to find their forever homes.

Astrid…you look pawsitively GORGEOUS! And you are so lucky that you have such a loving husband.
And we know about the problems with laptops. Mom has a old mouse that has a cord that she used to carry around for emergencies that now is a permanent fixture on the old laptop (when it gets turned on as it’s trackpad is toasted too). She’s glad she has it, because she has forgot her work laptop Mouse at work a few times and it works for that too! Mom also plugs it in when she is doing computer art too.
Have a Marvelous Sunday!

I’m sorry your computer died. Hubbies did a couple weeks ago and he’s using his tablet. Slower than a snail. Oh well, at least he can get done what needs doing.

Have a purrfect day. My best to your peeps. ♥

Oh dear, I detest computer problems! Probably a large part of that is because they make me feel helpless because of my lack of understanding how to fix whatever is wrong…. and the fact that it’s almost impossible to fins anyone who knows how to fix them. That having been said, CONGRATULATIONS on making it to 200 despite everything.
If you hadn’t mentioned that was an older photo, I wouldn’t have known and simply admired it. Obviously, your mom’s skills with digital art have been around for quite a while.
Hope you have a wonderful week and whatever is wrong with the iPad is simple – and inexpensive to repair.


Brian Frum June 10, 2018 at 8:38 am

Oh those techie things are just the worst, especially the unexpected ones. That is a beautiful selfie though!

Nice selfie, Astrid! And 200 weeks of Sunday Selfies–wow! Computer problems are such a pain, and of course they never happen when you have lots of spare time to deal with them.


katie Isabella June 10, 2018 at 7:13 am

Astrid…a joy to see your happy and lovely face. XXXX

OH NO on the computer problems… frustrating isn’t it. I guess maybe we’re so “low-tech” here with only a PC and laptop but no “pads” or smart phones that we have less frustration maybe but we hope you can figure out the problem ASAP. Two hundred Hops is a HUGE milestone – you know there’s nowhere else we want to be on Sundays than HERE with you!!! Great selfie – beautiful as always Astrid.

Love, Teddy

Wow – 200 weeks is impressive! Great throwback selfie!


Little Binky and Granny June 10, 2018 at 3:49 am

Oh, no, so sorry your mom also has computer problems, Astrid, but we hope it will get fixed soon. Glad you were able to post your golden oldie, that we like very much <3
And here's a 200 Pawkisses for that fantastic milestone…I have to be still for this, otherwise I lose count 😀 <3


Jackie Avery June 10, 2018 at 3:31 am

That is a lovely flashback selfie. 200 weeks of Sunday Selfies is a big milestone, congratulations! I miss having Flynn do his selfies.
I hope you can soon get the trackpad fixed. On my previous laptop, mine went crazy. It went where it thought it would, not where I wanted it to.


Dalton/Angel-MrJackFreckles/Pipo & Angel-Minko June 10, 2018 at 2:33 am

Computer troubles are so annoying and frustrating.

Astrid its always nice to see you, the purple suits you well.
