The Birthday Portrait

It was the Grandpa’s birthday last week. We celebrated all of his many years on Saturday.

I decided to try and get a picture of him with his Furlings, always a challenge. The Boy Furling can cause… problems.

We had this.


And this.


Poor Ab-Cat. She usually bears the brunt at these special times. Mousey is usually consistent.




Not quite.


A little too much.


Spiraling out of control….again.


Now look there? The Boy left to get coffee and this was the first take! Loverly!


We gave it ONE MORE TRY. EUREKA!!!!


Happy Birthday, Grandpa! Have many, many, more!
