Got Meow Madness?

by Kimberly A. Cook                     (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

It had to happen. Bracket frenzy is upon us with college basketball, but now everyone is getting in on the game. Including the Hallmark Channel felines. How cute are these athletes?

I didn’t even know what brackets were until a few years ago. If you said football playoffs, then I’d get it. Not a huge basketball fan. But these fabulous felines might change my mind. Watch on April 3 at 8 p.m. on the Hallmark Channel.

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Time To Hit The Pool!

by Kimberly A. Cook            (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

Snow in the East, sun in the West for today only, it must be time for a swim! For the baby penguin chicks at the Oregon Zoo, not us for Pete’s sake!

Look at these pros jump in for their first swim in the big penguin pool. Such athletes. Cute, cuddly and dressed to the nines. Can summer be far behind?

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Beauty And The Beast Movie!

by Kimberly A. Cook               (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

One of my all time favorite scenes in the animated movie “Beauty and the Beast” is when he shows Belle the library. He had me at library! For any reader/writer, giving them a library is one of the greatest gifts on earth.

When I went to the Library of Congress for the first time I couldn’t even speak. The Mother ship of books! Pretty sure I teared up too.

So Disney brings us a live action and special effects masterpiece once again. Fire up the popcorn machine, we’re going to need tons! Make your plans now, it opens March 17.

Oh, I’m a sucker for guys wearing capes too. Zorro, Darth Vader, the Beast. Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Up For A Joust?

by Kimberly A. Cook                  (Twitter@   WarriorTales)

In line with this week’s romance theme, thought it time to check out a joust. While in the Air Force Reserve in the summer of 1990 I spent a couple months working at The Pentagon. One weekend a fellow officer and I rented a car and drove to a Renaissance Fair with horse jousting. I pretty much parked my butt in the bleachers the entire day and watched.

The Tennessee jousters in this video are true athletes and horse folk. Check it out, but don’t try this at home.

Have a safe weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Football, Felines, Food And Fufu!

by Kimberly A. Cook                    (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

Break out the dip, chips and snacks, its the great football weekend of Kitten Bowl IV! I know you’ve all been looking forward to it, but we’re concerned about field conditions given the weather. Seems the ground keeper plow puppies have it under control. Snow removal is on target.

There is also that other game between the Falcons and Patriots, but Kitten Bowl IV comes on first on the Hallmark Channel and repeats all day. Go cathletes!

Have a great SAFE weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

P.S. So happy to know Fufu the predicting hedgehog at the Oregon Zoo overturned Groundhog Phil’s forecast yesterday. Early Spring here we come. Girl hedgehog power! FuFu rocks!

Time For Sea Otter Chefs?

by Kimberly A. Cook                (Twitter@ WarriorTales)

I read somewhere the average family rotates the same ten recipes for meals. That seems about eight more than I use on a regular basis. To increase my skills I’ve been watching a Mediterranean Cooking course. This class is taught by a Chef Instructor so I am way out of my league. Thought it would mostly involve cutting vegetables.

When I saw these rescued sea otters at the Oregon Zoo showing how to whip up a seafood buffet, I felt much more at home. Think I may use their shellfish opening techniques on the stuck lid on the spaghetti sauce jar. Get me a big rock! Or as we called them in the Army, a BFR.

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!
