We recently received this very nice award, which was new to us, from our pal, Purrince Siddhartha Henry. If you don’t know him, he’s the new kitty at what was Nylablue’s (our honorary sisfur) Purrfect Pad. You can meet Dharth by clicking here.



As with most awards, we have a few rules to follow.

  1. Thank the one who gave you the award: Siddhartha you were so kind to pass this award to us. Thanks! It makes us so happy that you think we (and Mom) are creative.
  2. Link to the blog of the one who gave the award to you: We did that above.
  3. Now we must tell you five things about ourselves. This is a tough one. Which of us get to be the ones to share? What could you possibly not know about us or our mom? After excavating our brains for memories of funny or interesting things about ourselves, we ended up letting Mom list things about herself.
  • Mom and Dad met right after college when he was a Yellow Cab driver and she worked for Budget Rent-A-Car at the Santa Barbara, CA, Airport.
  • If you were to stand on the sidewalk facing the house in which Mom grew up in Campbell, CA, and then look to the right you would be looking straight at the front of eBay’s headquarters, just two blocks away. It is where a huge private estate was located when she was growing up.
  • Mom started riding motorcycles with her dad when she was three years old. Her dad would put a pillow on the gas tank for her to sit on and then strap her to him with a belt.
  • Mom has four tattoos: Pooh, Tigger, a ladybug (for good luck) and our blog logo. 
  • Mom’s first pet of her very own was a five-pound cockapoo named Smack who she got when she was a sophomore in College.

Mom, Smack (L) and Poppy (R), Christmas 1977
