It’s Raining Cats and Dogs on Fri-Yay Funday

We’re finally getting a little much needed rain which we desperately need. I know some of you are up to your eye balls in storms and snow and enjoying bursts of color after such a cold season. It’s too bad we can’t spread the wealth and have equal playing time so we’re not either flooding or in a drought. It’s always all or nothing.

My friend/ dog trainer came over for a visit with his dogs this week and they didn’t mind the cold and to my surprise jumped in the pool. It was the highlight of my week. Memories came flooding back of my kids jumping in puddles and loving the water. They loved nothing more than to slide down the hill in the mud and come back covered head to toe. We would hose them down and throw them in the tub for a bubble bath and I would sing “Splish Splash I was taking a bath”. Those days were never dull and always kept us on our toes and now they are fun movies in my head.

Hunter and his friend Karenin and New Friends Maple and and Enzo. I love how dogs make friends so quickly with a sniff. Wouldn’t probably go over too well for us. 🀣

This is just a silly diddily Word Play that quickly evolved thinking back in time.

Babies Play
Child’s Play

Parents say…Time to take a bath

Play day
Cold play

Splish Splash …..
Your troubles away

Dogs Play
Cats Play

Cat eats mouse …..
Dogs chase them up a tree

Role Play

The plot thickens……
You oughta be in movies


Romance is in the air……
Some like it hot

Foul Play
Dirty Play

Air your dirty laundry……
Cut to the chase


Yay for Theater coming soon……..
Drama at it’s best

Double play
Ground Play

Cover all your bases……
Catcher at the plate

Horse Play
Down Play

Win or Lose…….
All Bets off

Word Play
Cindy Play

Stay home wear a mask…
Another Ground Hog Covid day!

Remembering Bobby Darin’s Splish Splash I was taking a bath song which was so awesome!
My daughters Cat

Thanks soooo much for visiting today and have a great Friday and weekend. As for me, I ran out the door to a client thinking it was Thursday (don’t ask) and didn’t get to add the pics I wanted which are lost in space somewhere and I can’t seem to find them. This seems to be the story of my life these days. Have a great weekend and as always please like (if you do of course, comment and or share if the spirit moves you.

Stay well and have fun!

  1. That is very nice. Sometimes, an individual likes remembering his pat days, sometimes people lives on their memories. It is very useful to remember our past days.

  2. Cindy, here is a question for you. Can a parent remain dry while helping children with a bubble bath? I think it is nigh impossible. As for the Bobby Darin song, “Splish Splash” remains the most appropriate song to sing at these moments. Keith

    1. lol… was looking for the mom and dad pics in the bath with them.. 🀣
      LOVE THE SONG and I was and will add but I thought it was thursday and darted out the door for a client but it’s Friday.. oye vey 🀣 gonna add thanks for the visit and the help! β€οΈπŸ’–

    2. alrighty, thanks… updated some pics (couldn’t find the good ones, always the way) but added the song thanks to you for the reminder! πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

      1. Cindy, I had not thought of this in years, but a colleague used to organize a charity event in Winston-Salem, NC called the “Rubber Duck Regatta.” People, mainly kids, would put their number on a rubber duck and they would all start our on the Yadkin River. The winners would get prizes. The kids loved it. Funny, I cannot remember the charity. Keith

      2. Oh what a fun thing to do and I love you pulled up the memory… never mind the charity… lol. That may come to you when you’re sleeping. I had a collection on rubber duckies for the kids which we all loved back then. πŸ’– I’m tempted to teach my cat to actually swim.. 🀣

  3. Haha! This is how we celebrates our first rain after long boring summer.
    It’s always be an amazing feeling.
    Of course there are so many stories and memories everyone always have to share.

    Lovely post.

      1. πŸ’– miss your posts but totally understand! Takes a lot of time and so appreciate your visits.
        Thanks for staying in touch.
        I will, you too!!

  4. Love the animal photos and memories! ❀️ my Ollie has just had a bath too 🀣 when he was a baby we used to play the β€˜rubber duck’ song from Sesame Street!

  5. That song “Splish Splash” brings back loads of laughter and memories of times with my sister and friends being silly 😜 We also loved to play in the rain, in our boots and with bubbles. Oh the good ol days πŸ€—πŸŒžπŸŒˆ What a treat to have a fun visit with fur babies πŸ₯° Your rhyme also gave me a good laugh and a walk down memory lane when I was a stay at home Mom with my boys. Thanks for all the memories dear Cindy 😘 ❀

    1. Oh happy you enjoyed some memories of your youth with your friends and your boys! The rain as kids brought out so much fun for sure! Lots of messes in our house but always worth the inconveince with the fun it brought. Thanks so much! πŸ’–

    1. Thanks Dwight! It was a fun surprise for me too.
      Most cats don’t like the water Dwight but she came with skin issues and I bathed her everyday with a special shampoo when she was a baby, so she learned to love it. Thanks and you too! πŸ’–πŸ’–

  6. What a fun post, Cindy! The animals are so endearing. Loved watching your cat playing in the water! Your poem is so light-hearted, just what I needed today. So glad you got some rain. <3 Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks so much Cheryl! They really are and so entertaining. Glad you enjoyed it. Yes, me too, we really needed it. I will and I hope you do as well! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

  7. And the Fun Fridays continue with a bit of splish and splash πŸ’¦

    Interesting- raining cats and dogs outside and kitty enjoying the cool ceramic experience inside 😻

    1. Hi Ashok,
      Yes, it does and glad it was the dogs in the pool and not me. 🀣
      Yes, and most cats don’t like water but one of mine does. I like it too but I sure wouldn’t fit in a ceramic bowl. 😹😹 Thanks for stopping in! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

  8. Look at all those animals! Wasn’t it just a couple weeks ago that you were happy to escape them? Here you are, all about them again! I love it. Sweet little verse! Hoping your upcoming week feels more organized and less lost in space! 🌞

    1. Oh you are so cute to remember. You got that right on both counts! 🀣🀣🀣 Glad you liked the verse and thanks for the wishes.. I hope for that too. juggling lots of balls as always. Have a good one. xoβ€οΈπŸ’–πŸŒ·

  9. Fantastic post, Cindy! Your poem reminds me of raising my boys! Dogs, cats, and all! 🀣🀣 You have a lovely weekend too, my friend. ❀️❀️

  10. Wow Cindy loved watching this so much. Milo here loves water so much that if he hears any tap running in the house he will come running to it. All of the babies were so happy and loved the day. It was a beautiful day to be out. Also i have doubt that if ollie is a cat even. Ollie behaves just like Milo. Haha. Wonderful. 😍😍😍😍

    1. Awww sweet Milo. He’s water dog alright. You’ll have to get him a plastic pool like I will do for the cats and Harry this summer. They were so cute alright. Glad you liked it! Right?!!!! Ollie is actually a dog!!!! Maybe she and Milo would be friends.. lol! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– thanks for the visit!!!

  11. You always come up with interesting posts Cindy. 😍😍 Am sure the dogs enjoyed the bath like I enjoyed watching this video πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
