The Week in Photo Review

You Guys!

I thought it might be fun today to show you a bit about what goes on around here during a typical week. This happened to be a filming week, so I’ve chosen some of my favorite “behind the scenes of life” photos to share with you.

With our web series, it can be difficult to find free time. Here’s MomFOD and Doodle taking a bit of a break on the balcony.

As you can see, Doodle took advantage of the moment. Figures.

Next, we have some exciting behind the scenes photos from our upcoming CATastrophes Episode 3. We got a new stunt double. Doodle was unsure of how to handle the situation.

Are you...real?

Are you…real?

Next, we have a shot of traveling to a location to film. MomFOD looked in the rear view mirror and couldn’t help but wonder what co-star Kris Flanagan was up to.

Hmmm...

Hmmm…

It turns out, he was sleeping. Not uncommon.

Moving along, we had some kittens on scene. Check this out:

As you can see by the look on his face, this kitten did not get the bowl full of all red M&Ms, six green-striped towels, and case of liver treats that he requested for his trailer. He was given, instead, a kiss on the head. I don’t think we’ll be working together again with his attitude.

Here we have the not-oft-seen DadFOD taking a moment to step out from behind the camera to pose with another of our kitten stars.

DadFOD and Kitten. The novelty will soon wear off and he'll return to hugging me. I have no doubts.

And finally, we have this:

It’s Mrs. Peabody contemplating life whilst resting her head on a sweet potato.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this peek into a typical week of my life. Of course, no photo journey is complete without a photo of me:

Me seeking attention.

Have a happy weekend, everyone!

Love,

Crepes.

PS. MomFOD will be leaving town next week for a few days. Too many days, in fact.  I will be chronicling my time home alone with DadFOD. It will be a sort of written account of all his goings on, in case anything happens while she’s away. I can only hope things don’t go awry.

 

Crepes: The Swimsuit Edition

You Guys!

A few weeks ago, I commented at IHaveCat.com on a Valentine’s day giveaway for a “thong” from Latvia. It was handmade by Viviana Ozola, and I just loved it. Now, I asked for an XXXXXXXS size, but that wasn’t one of the standard options, so I settled for a medium. When I commented, I suggested that I could use it for a swimsuit. And then, dream come true, I won.

So, my friends, I took my prize and I went to the beach and I began to model.

But then, things went awry. Let me walk you through my ordeal.

Here I am getting into my swimsuit.

A playful shot to start as I warm up.

Next, I test out my moody look.

Now, I really start to get into it.

Workin' it.

Workin’ it.

And then…I decide to make things interesting.

Is it hot in here, or is it just me?

But then, as I really start to roll around, something comes out of the sea and dons my swimsuit.

This is MY shoot, seabeast!

This is MY shoot, seabeast!

 

As you can see, I was not pleased.

Some things cannot be unseen.

And then, it got worse.

 

I quit.

I quit.

I gave up after Peabody got involved. Next time, I need to schedule my bodyguard to guard me. And find a private beach.

Siblings suck. I hope you enjoyed the first few photos, anyway.

Have a happy weekend!

Love,

Crepes.

 

 

 

The Grooming Report: Mrs. Peabody

Today’s Grooming Report is brought to you by Mrs. Peabody.

Right now we’re seeing intermittent showers with a downpour of intense grooming coming in around noon. After that, we’re likely to see some serious napping taking place on the upper pillows for the afternoon hours, followed by another nap after dinner time. Usually the presence of Peabody indicates some storm clouds on the horizon, so don’t forget to bring your umbrellas.

Mrs. Peabody, your grooming weather girl for this week.
