The Owl and the Pussy-cat by wintersmagic The Owl and the Pussy-cat by wintersmagic
A bit of fun based on the poem by Edward Lear and a little tribute to my beloved Morticia who sadly is no longer with us (updated and original credited moon and sea stock replaced 12.10.13) :

'The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.'

. . . . . Why does this remind me of some poem/story about a cat and an owl who ran away together? . . . Something like that.
Very beautiful.

It's a Gibson ES175, I've no idea as to the year. I bought it for my hubby before we were married so that's 20 years and it was 'old' then. Continued ill health means he's unable to play it, which is very sad

It's so sad when they are elderly. Morticia was put up for rehoming because she was independent and only wanted attention on her own terms which is why we chose her. We still have her brother but he's very elderly now and I dread the day when I lose him too :hug:
