Who wants to go Tank Driving?


Don't panic guys, I've not touched a drop of Smooch's lethal Mindbender nip cocktail, so I'll be your designated tank driver tonight, all-a-board fur oodles and oodles of fun, and don't tell the P.A. but we might go blow some stuff up, just because we can! MOL 

Also we're offuring another 'one time only guided tour fur 2020' of our secret bunker, though we did start pawtying in there earlier aftur our epic angel fursibs arrived, sorry about the mess - OOPS - if mew're feeling a bit peckish Humphrey can whip mew something up in his lab, yes, it doubles up as his purrsonal kitchen when he pops in to visit and he invented an A.I. replicator that can make anything mew want.

 So fur all those guests who would like oodles of bacon with their bacon butties, bacon pies and bacon burgers mew are definitely in the right place, and put your paw in the air so he can fulfil that bacon, with bacon, with extra bacon on the side with bacon sprinkles on top order just fur mew!

Oh just a quick warning during the tour, if mew feel an uncontrollable urge to push any RED BUTTONS that are clearly marked DO NOT PUSH - purrlease heed the warning as we don't want the dragon to escape again, or anything else fur that matter.

And don't wurry about the kraken either, K.D. aka Kraken-Dude is on level 8 with Horice and all the creatures from the alternate dimension in the Bio-sphere, so we'll be missing out on that level due to health and safety protocols as K.D.'s lessons in 'A Krakens Guide To Adapting To The 21st Century' are still going a wee bit sloooooooow and he hasn't quite grasped that he can't just randomly eat whateffur and wheneffur he feels like it. 

Help yourselves to nibbles

Smooch and Parsley   @BionicBasil® 2019



The give-way is open wurld-wide** as usual, and all mew have to do is leave a comment below.  We'll do the draw fur the winner next Monday at 5pm, so mew have until then to enter and we'll post the winner on the next post we share.

And what's the prize, we hear mew ask?

Well, as all our pawesome regulars know, our giveaways are epically epic and we like to surprise mew with a little goodie bag with delightful things fur mew and your hooman.

We have one goodie bag to give-away

[**Unless mew're in one of those countries that aren't allowed to join in. Mew know who mew are.]


Prizes are as stated and no substitutes or cash prizes will be substituted.  The rules are clear, so purrlease abide by them.

We do hope mew all have an EPIC time at the pawty, and if mew need to chill we have allocated the Crystal Room as the zen-zone, so mew can have a snooze, take five or just crash completely.

Thanks for coming!

Parsley xx

Just look how content and relaxed he is, we could all learn something from him today and that is... if life is throwing lemons at mew, duck and go chill in the garden! MOL

We're also joining in the lovely Athena's Art Hop so do stop by and show off your pawesome arty-farty skills.

This week we're back with Befunky, and the effect used was: - Cartoonizer DLX

We also turned this fab arty-farty picture into a puzzle, so do stop by the puzzle page and see if mew can beat our time of 11 mins 33 secs. A little slower than last weeks but we were distracted by Smooch's epic cuteness.

Anyhoo it's time for us to go on to go check on the pansies, as the P.A. potted on 48 plug plants yesterday and they'll need a bit of tlc for the next couple of weeks to help get them established, and she had a tonne of topsoil delivered the other to add to a couple of the borders, so while we go off and snoopervise, we hope mew have a totally terrific day, oh and don't furget to stop by tomorrow as it's Parsley's birthday Pawty, and mew're all invited!

Wishing mew lots of snoozy snuggles

Welcome To Friday Fluffers ~ Showcasing The Latest Batch of Photo Bloopers From The BBHQ Archives Starring Angel Posie, Angel Snowie and Angel Humphrey ~ PLUS Friendly Fill-Ins & Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day ~ Remembering Our Angel Fursibs

Welcome to

Friday Fluffers withThe B Team ©BionicBasil®

Happy Friyay Fab Pals

Welcome to our Friday Fluffers post where we showcase a selection of photo bloopers or photo fails from BBHQ, the photos that we thought would neffur see the light of day, buried deep, deep, deep in the archives on level 12 of our secret bunker, with no chance of effur being seen on the interwebs fur the wurld to see... UNTIL NOW!

Are mew ready fur some fun outtakes from The B Team? Of course mew are!

And today we're sharing our Angel Fursibs; Posie who departed 22nd April 2015 and Snowie and Humphrey who departed 17th & 18th April 2017, they left within 24 hours of each other. 

And furst on the podium is Angel Posie's Seductive Selfie, we think she was taking a few pics for her dating profile! MOL

This week we're also joining in Friday Fill-ins with the fabulous 15 & Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs.
1. _________________________ is a privilege.

2. I was so embarrassed when ________________________.

3. I can’t help but smile when _________.

4. _________ has gotten out of hand.

The P.A.'s answers are...

1. Being able to rescue all the animals I have is a privilege.

2. I was so embarrassed when I tripped on my flip-flops/doormat, fell into the door frame and nearly knocked myself out while trying to pick up Fudge!

3. I can’t help but smile when I come home after work and see my furry welcoming committee aka The B Team all waiting in the porch for me as I open the door.

4. Bad manners, rudeness and ignorance have gotten out of hand in recent times. I get a little peeved when for instance I hold a door open for someone and they don't say thank you. Or you say good morning etc to people in your local community and they ignore you.  I was brought up to be polite, kind and respectful, sadly those traits don't apply anymore, especially with the younger, overly entitled generations. It's very sad.

Today is also Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day, hosted by the epic Deb Barnes from the Zee and Zoey Blog

Today we take the time to remember our angel buddies who sadly departed for The Rainbow Bridge this year and all those from previous years too.

Gone but neffur ever forgotten

We are not strangers to loss at BBHQ, and know how hard it is; not a day goes by when we don't think about Posie, Snowie, Humphrey and Millie - below, she departed long before we started the blog, but what a gorgeous little cat she was.

The P.A. and dad are still grieving the loss of our beloved Basil and they've said on many occasions since his departure in 2018, 9th September that they don't think they'll ever truly get over it.

If any of mew feel the same and are struggling with the loss of a furry companion, or ever want to talk about it, we'll always listen if mew ever need an ear.

We do hope mew enjoyed today's bloopers and we'll be back next Friyay with more funny photos.

Join us again on Sunday when we're here with our usual selfie selection, in the meantime...

Keep calm, and purr on
