That horse drawn mower is quite the find ~ but nothing can compare to a good orange cat :)

I wish you could have heard me laugh when I looked at the second Oliver picture. Oh, it's simply perfect. What a god. :-)

Cute! Both Olivers are worth keeping.

I do love an orange cat! I've said for years that our next one will be a marmalade, and we'd name her Cornbread.

My Dad used to sell the Oliver equipment, long years ago in the South. He built a BIG show-room on the side of his business, and I remember the big green (a little darker than John Deere Green) tractors standing in there, with the scent of those enormous black-rubber tires permeating the entire shop.

In addition to the commissions, I do remember that there were really nice prizes for each sale---one gift was a matched set-of-four of the pale pearly-tan-ivory Samsonite. We used that set for every trip, and I can still smell the wonderful Coty-Coppertone scent when we opened the train-case.

Nice memories.

Love both Olivers, but the second Oliver is so beautiful. I love those pink paws and nose. Does he like to be held?

The living Oliver is stunning. What a beauty. I have a tuxedo cat and a gray tabby cat but there is just something about an orange cat that melts my heart. Probably because Granny always had orange cats when I was growing up. she said they were the best "mousers". :)

Wishing you and Oliver a beautiful weekend.

Jo, I like the old mower...but I like furry Oliver the best. Hope you are okay, I know you have some nasty weather, pretty much like the rest of us. I am ready for Spring. Take care and enjoy your weekend, xoxo,Susie

My father in law loved Oliver tractors and I do like Oliver your cat. He is so cat with the sleeping with great relaxation. His markings are also so great.
