Week 40 Give us a smile....

Focus on  Life....Today Friday October 6 is 
World Smile Day...  
I love Simon's cat videos... found this picture on FB yesterday after attempting to take pictures of my cats 'smiling' 
 Thought it was appropriate for this weeks prompt!
(Thanks to Simon Tofield for creating his cartoons!)

"Since 1999, the first Friday of October has been named World Smile Day.
The concept was the brainchild of Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts. Harvey is best known for creating the iconic Smiley Face symbol and after being concerned about the original meaning of his design being lost through over commercialization, he came up the idea of World Smile Day.
According to the official website, Harvey "thought that we, all of us, should devote one day each year to smiles and kind acts throughout the world."
Will you be doing anything to mark World Smile Day? "

Here's my cats smiling!

Think Emm is auditioning for Grumpy Cat
Yea I'm Cute!  & I'm Smiling!
If you turned this thing on it would be a lot warmer!
This would be a lot more comfy if she'd get rid of all that 'test' jewellery!

Check on the following links to see other people's smiles! :)

My cats do not smile either. I love Simon's cat. So very true!

Alicia said...

LOL - maybe your cats don't smile, but I'm still laughing!
Thanks for sharing the 'World Smile Day' information (I wonder if Sally researched it too or she's so in tune with the world that it is just a splendid coincidence) :)

Wonder captures of your "smiling" fur buddies. Love the one on the stove.

oh shoot, I did not work in enough smiling today. I did have a good giggle last night when kitty discovered that sometimes you really shouldn't jump on the toilet. Oh man was he soaked when I chased him down to dry him off. He spent the day driving me mental in revenge. I love your kitty smiles

Didn't know that! Must put it in my diary for next year :)
Cats and boxes, hey? They just love 'em :)

It looks like you have trained your kitties to be good assistants in the studio! You are right - my sister's kitten sure looks like your second kitty. Is it Thomas? What sweet faces!

Adrienne said...

So cute! What a thought to give a year to smiling!

Beti Horvath said...

Wow, i found that World Smile Day stuff too. Forgot to add to my blog! I Love Simon's Cat! Your's are precious. That is the cat way - never do what you want them to.

Cute cat pics Lynne. I want to take my cat's pic for his eyes. I think they would make a fabulous lampworked bead.

Oh - love the kitty pics. Cats always make me smile. I actually like 'grumpy cat' in this set - how can you resist smiling at that face!!?! Although the others made me smile just a big! World Smile Day - who knew - thanks for the info. I love a good 'smiley face'! :-)

Alice said...

Love the cartoon! Thanks for sharing your kitty photos. It seems they each have a different personality.

LoriF said...

Well, they made me smile! Your black (dark brown?) baby really reminds me of my Hershey, who's been gone for about 5 years now.

When I first thought about this challenge I thought about taking pictures of my cats, as cats always make me smile. Time ran out and another picture came along. But your cat pictures are great and really pit a smile on my face.

Well now her prompt's timing makes a lot of sense! lol!

I was going to take a photo of my dogs smiling, but I missed my opportunity. They always smile while and after playing. I guess some would say it's just them panting, but to us it looks like they're smiling.
