Mom on Monday

My mom was tagged by Fin's mom to play the following game: Either (1) post 7 facts about yourself AND photos OR (2) post 10 facts about yourself with no photos, OR (3) post a childhood picture of yourself. Since mom is not much for math or for following rules, she will just do her own take on this.

My mom does not like appearing on my blog. She feels it belongs to me and my other fur siblings. She thinks she should be like the humans in the Peanuts comic strip. Always out of sight and when you hear them it's just "waaa waaaa waaaa". She is not afraid to admit she likes hiding behind me.Ok now, I'll turn it over to her...

Lori here...

1. I like riding bikes. I have 5 of them and I ride them all. Looking back, it appears my love of bikes goes way back. One was not enough even when I was a kid. I rode my bike everywhere until I was 15 or 16, then I pretty much stopped until a few years ago when I started riding again. I just completed my first century ride which was REALLY hard. I also row, and rowed competitively as a masters (meaning old) for many years. I have been taking a break from competing but will probably get back to it one of these days. I have my own single rowing shell which I adore.

2. I have always loved cats and since about the age pictured below, I have not been without one in my life, except for a one or 2 year period which was not much fun at all.


3. I grew up in California and moved to Oregon 30 years ago.

4. I love coffee. Black. Strong.
5. I am a morning person and love waking up before first light and watching the sun come up.

6. I can't eat gluten. I discovered this 8 years ago and I feel 1000% better. This is ok with me because my favorite food groups (cheese, steak, wine, chocolate and coffee) are still ok for me to eat.
7. I work as a training manager. I enjoy my work, but I work to live not the other way around.

Ok, enough about me. Let's get back to the cats!

Cory and I can't keep track of who has been tagged and who has not, but this is so much fun that we want all cat and dog bloggers who read this to join in and play!

My human feels the same way. Personally I'd rather my human didn't show up on my blog. She's not nearly as lovely as I am.

Unfortunately that shirt did not have a credit card.

It's nice to get to know you. My Mom is shy too.

Hahaha! We love the first photo! At first, we thought your mum had a mask on, then thought 'Wait a minute! That's Cory!!!'. The picture of your mum and the little kitten is very sweet.

The photos are lovely, and the answers interesting. Mom said she agrees hiding behind cats is much nicer ~ she prefers to do that too.

The Island Cats said...

Hi Cory's mom! It's nice to learn more about you! Our mom is like yours...and sez the blog is for our pictures and stuff...not hers! Heehee! Our mom sez she likes the same food groups as you too!

The Creek Cats said...

So great to learn more about you, Lori! Mom says she misses the bikes with the banana seats and she also works to live!

The Monkeys said...

Thanks for letting your Mom post, Cory! We love the picture of her hiding behind you...so cute.

P.S. My Mom says that your Mom's favorite foods are exactly like hers!

CCL Wendy said...

You sound like a good mom -- who is more interested in her babies than in herself! It's nice to be all about ourselves once in a while, though. Nice to know you a little better!

Tom, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan said...

Whitey said...

I love that your mom rides bikes so much. Some of my Mommie's favorite food groups are also wine, chocolate and cheese!

Junior and Orion said...

Nice getting to know you! Meowm has a bike....at least we think it is a bike. We have only seen glimpses of it in the storage unit on the porch.

That was a funny photo where your mum had your face instead of her own. We liked learning a bit about her.

It's so nice to get to know your mom better! My mom has been tagged. She's going to play as soon as she can find some pictures.

Fin said...

Hi Lori! So nice to see the top of your current head! And what a cutie you were and I'm sure still are. I'm a trainer too, how cool.

We love to come on over here and see your furry family.

I love reading all about the cat moms - I think it is great! I am kind of glad to hear you have 5 bikes - it makes me feel less concerned about my boyfriend having 2 (which live in our kitchen). He has had up to 3 or 4 at a time (he loves bikes like I love cats). That is cool that you did the century ride - I know I wouldn't be able to!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

We're just trying to catch up on everyone's adventures that we have missed. Man, cats sure are busy!! Anyhow, our mom can't eat gluten either and doesn't miss it one bit. She gets so tired of the "But, that means you can't eat ANYTHING" comments.
