Sunday Selfies Blog Hop: Week #139

Phoebes-Traveling-ShadesWe have been waiting and waiting and waiting… Last summer we joined Pheobe’s (15AndMeowing) Traveling Shades tour. Summer came and went, fall came and went, winter came and went, and we were still waiting. Finally the shades reappeared, being worn by Mudpie (Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows). We had hope that we’d get our turn. And two days ago the sunglasses arrived in our mailbox.

Petretary wants to get at least one photo of each of us wearing them. We are not going to hold our collective breaths, but let’s make it clear right now—ain’t ever gonna happen! One reason for that is the shades don’t fit all of us. Lily Olivia tried them on but they just kept falling off. Then I, your selfie host today, tried them on. They were too small for me. With any luck at least one of my fursibs will have a head that is somewhere between the size of Lily’s and mine.

I did manage to snap a couple of so-so selfies with the shades atop my head. Then I went to piZap and picked a nice springtime frame to complement the frame on the shades. And here it is. Sorry I didn’t look at the camera.

Astrid thought she was pretty special last week when she got three posts in succession. My plan is for the same thing for myself. Keep your paws crossed for me.


Now, the petretary says that I have to do the business of this post. Frankly, I think that is her responsibility, but if I want that third post, I figure I best comply.

This is our Sunday Selfies blog hop. All critters and their humans are invited to join in the fun. The link to add your selfie is below as is the code to add the hop to your post. If you decide to do this, would you please do us the courtesy of linking back to The Cat on My Head and/or displaying our badge.

If you cannot join us today, the hop remains open through Thursday.

My fursibs and I and the petretary are so grateful to have so many friends and supporters of our Sunday Selfies blog hop. Please accept my sincere thanks on behalf of all of us.

Calista Jo, You are the coolest! And I think your sweet heady is just the purrfect size. Do you ever get to drive that Hooligan Paddy Wagon??? Please tell those brothers of yours NOT to come over here and arrest me. I have a little bit of Hooligan in me, but I don’t want to go to the slammer!

We think you look meowvelous in those shades, and the way you perched them atop your head, well, that is a fashion statement, right??!

What adorable shades. I wondered who would have them next. And it looks like you picked the perfect frame to compliment those eye frames. Well done!

That is a sweet selfie of you in the travelling shades. I wasn’t able to take my selfie this week. Hopefully I may be able to do it next week if I feel better, but to be truthful I am failing now.

Hi Calista-Jo

Summer April 9, 2017 at 3:42 am

What I really want to know is where did Phoebe’s human find those shades! I want a pair – to keep! Judging from how they fit Calista Jo, I bet they would fit me perfectly because I have a small (but not too small) head.
