Sunday Guest Star: Laila and Minchie

Well after that very easy place, Laila and Minchie stumped you all. Cory Cat came the closest after several hints:

Are you in Ireland? I’m getting booted from the computer now…gotta go…Queenstown?

No we weren’t in Queenstown.

I was in in Cobh, Ireland, the last port of call on the Titanic’s tragic maiden voyage. Laila and Minchie say:

This is what is left of the dock it sailed from. Our Mom took a walking tour of this area and just stood there in awe picturing the Titanic all those years ago as it sailed out to the ocean, never to be seen again.

So it was quite difficult.

Derby, my human has that song stuck in her mind now. Thank you for that. It annoys her to have songs stuck in her head.

I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time

Max, after all the nice things I do for you…

I will not push Chey in…I will not push Chey in…I will not push Chey in…I will not push Chey in…I will not push Chey in…I will not push Chey in…I will not push Chey in…

  1. Well done to Cory Cat.
    Our mum is sooo stupid. In our comment we said she told us she saw the memorial to the Titanic but couldn’t remember where. She thought it was when they were on their New England cruise in October. Well, in July they went on a cruise around the British Isles and visited Cobh (pronounced Cove)The museum was right beside the station when they took the train into Cork. Trust her to not remember!

  2. Wow. That does not look like a very large dock, certainly nor large enough for the Titanic to set sail from.

  3. Wow! We were waaaaay off….

    Congrats to Cory Cat for getting it right!

  4. Chey, now our Momma will have that song stuck in her head too … hee hee! And we are so glad Max didn’t push you in!!! Happy Sunday, furriend!

  5. Cobh, Ireland was once called Queenstown. The name Cobh was restored back in 1922.

    Cory Cat is one smart cat!

  6. OOOHHH! So I am right? I was about to say close…but no catnip cigar?? Do I get the cat nip now?

  7. Moth likes that song, she will be humming it all day long now.
    Merry last Christmas, hope it was a happy one, and Happy early New Year!!!!

    Glad you liked CCSI IV!

  8. The Titanic must be smaller than I imagined. Is that where it docked?

  9. Good going, Cory Cat! The sense of history in that place must be awe-inspiring.

  10. Hi,

    Hope you’re having a great time! Mom said loved the film Titanic!

  11. Oh, what a neat place to get lost, Chey. Did you have a good time?

    We’re not sure whether our new kitty toy is sturdy. Especially since Jan had to keep taking it apart and putting it back together. But hopefully, it will last. And our Rusty is HUGE. So let’s hope it is sturdy!

  12. Congratulations to Laila and Minchie. As usual, I had no clue!

  13. Ireland! Is Boston anywhere near Ireland? Not close enuf. Just, whatefur you do, DON’T sail on the Titanic! Or the Edmund Fitzgerald. As fur Max, he’s Max!

  16. Happy to stick a song in your beans head for a while. Mum is still singing Christmas songs!

  17. Where it all began…

    Congrats to Cory the cat!

  18. That’s very smart of Cory to guess that! Must be an eerie place to visit.
