Poof… just like that, the Boys have moved in…

Good morning.  A little explanation is in order today.  I’ve just had tooooooo many blogs. That’s all there is to it.  I love them all… I really do, but there just aren’t enough hours in the day and I was letting The Boys blog slide and was letting my website slide too.  Can’t have that…. So, I’ve combined LouBelcher.com, BeforeYouWrite.com and MaxTheQuiltCat.com into one blog…..

Today The Boys are the most important in this move.  I’m hoping they’ll take to the new blog easy-peasy like.

If you don’t know them ….  the boys are Knuckles and Bugsy.  Yes, they are cats, but if you’ve been following this blog for any length of time, it should be no surprise to you that they are cats.   After all…. I did post 30 paintings of them in a row three times this year.

Anyway, what with writing my blogs and keeping up with my art, I’ve been letting the boys’ blog slide and my website slide… The RESULT — a big case of the guilts.

So… my solution is to combine them.  So, please welcome Knuckles and Bugsy. You’ll be hearing a little about them a couple times a week and I’ll be going out to make sure we comment on their friends’ blogs as often as possible.  So that’s the story.

Now it’s time to make the boys feel welcome.

FIRST…. here’s Knuckles.  He’s the most excitable of the two.  Although he seems to be on hyper-alert status with the move taking place today…. he is adjusting nicely for Knuckles..







NEXT…  here’s Bugsy… As you can see, he takes things in stride a little quicker than Knuckles… He’s already into EASY LIKE SUNDAY nap mode and he’s only been here a little while….

Saturday.... or day of rest and recreation... Have a great day!

If you have a minute, please leave the boys a little welcoming comment. That might help the transition.

Thanks for stopping by…. Hope you like the new direction of the blog.  I’ll still post about writing and art and everyday life.  And now we have the boys too.  Life just doesn’t get any better than that.

Have a great day.


P.S.  Almost forgot to introduce Checkers…. He’s Bugsy’s and Knuckles’ pet mouse.

    We’ll add you to Feedly so we can keep up. We still skim posts, though our human’s not blogging for us very often anymore. She can’t keep up with her personal blog and keep up with 300 cat blogs, either. LOL.

    • loubelcher says:

      Fuzzy Tales… It’s so nice to know that you understand how hard it is to keep up with multiple blogs. Thanks so much for following us over here.

      Hugs, Bugsy, Knuckles and HH
