Flashback Straw Hat Day Selfies ~ and: Happy Victoria Day!

We were not able to make a post on the 15th for Straw Hat Day, and *she* wasn't able to make new images either...oh well, its always good to have old images to resort to, BOL!!
And with Memorial Day coming up, who knows if the camera will be clicking or not! 

Speaking of Holidays, Tomorrow, May 20th is Victoria Day in Canada, a major holiday, with fireworks and all kinds of fun things. Celebrating the birthday of Queen Victoria, who was the queen when Canada was 'born' in 1867.
Its the beginning of the summer season! Years ago in her single days, petcretary went camping on this long weekend holiday with several other single young was hot, so she found a nice shady place to keep her (film) camera cool...oops...when one of the other campers left to get some supplies he drove right over it!! Yikes!! But it was replaced with a better camera! Which she still had when she came to Michigan...and used it to take lots of pics of her first kitties and the unfurbros when they arrived. Eventually she got still a better film camera,and then the first of two digital point and shoot ones. the latter which she still uses...sometimes!! She prefers the phone camera for some reason. BOL!!
Petcretary was right but not first right last Tuesday at Teddy's Teaser Tuesday. She got this cute badge as her 'reward'

OK, here we are in our Straw Hats:

All of these were taken 2019...Benji wasn't even a year old when they were taken!
We are hopping along with many others in the Sunday Selfies! The Cat On my Head hosts this hop every week, and has done so for a LONG time!! Thanks Kitties Blue!

And in case you didn't know, The pawrents of the Kitties Blue, Janet and Tom, are celebrating their 51st Wedding Anniversary today! Congratulations! 🎉💐

  16. You look very chic with hat and tie !

  17. Do you two have even the slightest idea how adorable you are in those hats!? You make mom want to go out and get a doggy! (which I would not approve of even though I think you too are..well...the cat's meow!)

  18. Lulu: "You boys sure looked handsome in your headgear!"

  19. OMDs I wore my straw hat with a wide brim on my morning walk. It is imPAWtant to keep the sun off my older than dirt skin when I walk. I didn't look as adorable as you in mine.
    Hugs Cecilia
