    Hi to you all!
    My name is Martie, living in the Netherlands. I live my life with my husband, 7 cats and 1 small dog in Lelystad, not far from Amsterdam. Actually I am a catbreeder, the reason I have 7 cats 😉 I wanted to play an instrument my whole life, but my parents didn’t let me take lessons and later on there was a lack of funds. So I never learned to play something…I loved the guitar or violin. Now, at the age of 55 my husband and I bought harmonicas and we’re pretty fantatic 🙂 My husband has a Hohner Golden Melody and I own a Fender John Popper Blues Traveler. Absolute beginners! We hope to learn… at the moment we don’t get further as Silent Night, Happy Birthday and some children’s songs, all very slow. But hey…it’s fun!

    I see you breed cats, that’s awsome. I love cats, the most cats i’ve had at once was 5, (i’m not a cat breeder) they were all fixed. my favorite is a solid black cat, my heart broke when i lost my last cat (KnightShade) had her for almost 18 years, her hair was turning white. After that i just couldn’t replace her. They had cat doors , which in my opinion being able to go outside, an eat all they want make them bigger and taller than most cats. Do you love your Fender Harmonica? Did you get it on sale? Your little puppy is so cute.

    My Chihuahua “Dinges” is a cute dog, yes…thank you 🙂 Actually it is my second small dog. In early days I owned very large dogs, but it’s too tough physically so I got a Dachshund first. His name was Jazz…had him together with a Siamese cat called Blues 😉 Blues died in 2009, Jazz suddenly dropped dead 2 years ago. Very sad…
    I can imagine you were heartbroken when you lost KnightShade. We also own solid black cats. Also a black smoke called Gwen is Gone Fishing, we call her Fish 🙂 She is the one in the picture.
    And music… well, I didn’t know the Blues Traveler Band nor John Popper. I watched a video about the Fender John Popper Blues Traveler and I liked his play and the sound of the harmonica. It plays very easy in high notes. So different from my husband’s Golden Melody. I’m a 0 in playing music though. Still stuck in the first lessons…. Sometimes I think I will never play a pure note 😉 And I don’t like the sound in C. Should be a G, but that is stuff for later on 😉

    Wow, now that’s a awsome looking cat. How did you manage to get Fish to sit still for the Picture???

    Sorry it took some time to answer…. My husband takes the pictures, I’m keeping the cat busy. It’s a tough job 🙂
