Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable

I love companionable.  People and animals getting along together.  Maybe even plants, anything that breathes.  Things???  Well, Manny is companionable, but usually…  Well there are a few things I can’t do without, too, come to think of it.

Puppy Girl and Mama Kitty are about the same size and very companionable.  Even from the start Mama accepted PG.  Who knows why?  She hates other cats that come around.

BJ and Piggles

I used to raise guinea pigs.  my puppy BJ was so jealous of what we gave the guinea pigs that he would eat things that dogs just hate – like lettuce.  He and Bud were very companionable with the guinea pigs when we fed them.  Piggles didn’t mind being companionable.

History Girls

My good friends, the history girls, and I decided that one of our outings would be to see Wicked.  I found these perfect sparkly red shoes at the Sears store in the shopping mall near the theatre – wonder why?  They were only $9.99.  Who could pass on that?  We wore them and felt companionable, not just with each other, but with the play as well.

Now I have to go BE companionable with the Woodlake Kiwanians who put on a July  3rd Fireworks Display.  I hate working in 108 degree heat, but I am going to be companionable – until I melt.  🙂  Lots of love to everyone.  Remember to be companionable tomorrow as you celebrate our freedom to be companionable.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. For thirty-five years, I lived in the most beautiful area in Central Valley of California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains minutes from the Sequoia National Park. As a child I moved from Indiana to Oregon. With my first husband I moved from Oregon to Colorado to California. Every time we moved, it hurt so much to leave friends. I never wanted to move again. After Mark passed, I married again. I told Vince that I could never budge from my roots in California. He said he loved the high desert. I don't think he ever thought he would realize his dream. In November, 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.

  1. Marsha, great choice … great post – yes, what would we be without great friendship and sharing. I love guinea pigs – had two … mom and daughter, the little one was blind … so smart and adoreable – they both died in a very strange way. When I travelled I always handed them into a pet shop and the guy the looked after them so well. The last time .. when I came to collect them the both was dead. He thought that maybe the weather had been too cold for them when I walked over with them . so the mom died first and the little one died of a broken heart. Miss them so often.


    1. AWWW I got Piggles from a teacher at school. I adored her. I wanted to get a mate, but I didn’t want to get another from the same teacher because they would be inbred. Silly me! I went to a pet store and bought Buster. Buster looked a little like Piggles in the face, but his fur was a different color and not silky. I didn’t suspect anything until I was telling my teacher friend, and she told me that she had taken all her guinea pigs to the pet store! hahaha I had bought Piggles’ brother. They had many fine children. One fall evening I was watering the grass , and Piggles, who had run of the yard got wet, and the temperature cooled that night.. She died about a week later. I think she was about 6 or 7. Buster got some disease, and withered down to about half his adult size – length and weight. I assume it was some kind of guinea pig cancer. They were adorable pets.


  2. Great pics for the challenge. Now I’m wondering if I need to buy some red shoes for when I go to see ‘Wicked’ in the West End next month. 😕 I’ll tell hubby it was you who put the wicked idea into my head. 🙂 Happy Independence Day.


  3. What a lovely post, it is nice to read about this sort of thing Marsha. We had two cats that were great mates, then, for some unknown reason, they started fighting and we had to say good bye to one of them.
