Happy Monday guys

Welcome to another fab Brain Training sesh on the blog, and this week I'm sharing a throwback from way, way, way back in June 2007.

Brain Training with Cats #71 ©BionicBasil® Flashback with Basil to June 2007

The garden looks so different, look mum no trees! 

I really loved my look-out purrch and was so sad when it fell to pieces after about 10 years and ended up on the bonfire. It was resurrected more than once, the P.A. even bought new sisal rope and redid all 4 legs, which she said during and after that she was never going to do it again! MOL

I am going to say it again, I can't believe how different the garden is today, it's a veritable jungle compared to this stark, treeless vibe. But then the P.A. did have a lot of opposition from her Uncle about what she wanted to plant tree wise. In fact, there was a time in 2009 when her Uncle poisoned three trees along the back border and killed them. I won't repeat what happened after.

But I will ask mew, what would mew have done, if your trees had been poisoned?

It's time to get those little grey cells working.

Here's the answer key to last time's sudoku puzzle #38

  1. Momma would be majorly MAD if somebody did that.

  2. I would be seething if anyone poisoned any of my trees/plants! That is a lovely flashback of you and was only 11 months after we started blogging.

  3. And I thought I had it bad because The Hubby ran over a couple of pads of the prickly pear with the lawn mower, but I cannot image anyone damaging anything in my garden.
    So sorry you had to go through that, but now you have lushness that Angel Basil wishes he'd been able to romp in.
    Am still planning a sort of mini-henge in our backyard...*wink*

  4. Poisoning trees on purrpose? There wudda been hekk to pay. Banished from the property, fur sure. And I'd probably widdle on his shoes. Yoo know how potent cat pee is. Yoor garden must be a wonderland for the B Team.

  5. Dear Basil, no trees, no birds , no shade and at that point NO uncle. So glad to know the family has trees now. You get to keep an eye on all furever. Precious

  6. Going to do the puzzle in a few. I'm slow doing them, but I enjoy them so very much.

    Have a fabulous day and week. Scritches to the kitties and a hug to mom. ♥

  7. Enjoyed the picture of you Angel Basil! Glad you have trees there now. Sorry to hear about what happened before. I'd be seriously upset with anyone who poisoned trees, oh my.

  8. That's an adorable photo and wish our brains good luck with the training!

  9. Poisoning even the so called wild trees here would make all of us quite upset and angry.
    We did that puzzle a while back...
    You sure had a great spot to watch over yor yard, Angel Basil.

  10. Love your photo Angel Basil 😻 wouldn't be happy if someone done that to our trees🌳.X😻🐈‍⬛🐈🐾

  11. Poisoning trees is just utterly wrong. We hope karma kicked him in the rear end.

  12. What a gorgeous kitty! I'm skipping the brain training until I've had some coffee.

  13. Finished the puzzle and it took me 13 minutes.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches to all the kitties and a hug to mom. ♥

  14. Nice photo of Angel Basil. Thank you for the puzzle. XO
