We knew you could mieu it!
I just finished reading Mastering EOS Flash Photography, the reference guide on flash that I’ve been looking for for several years. It explains all about the theory and principles of flash, as well as what Canon products are required for specific kinds of shots. It’s an awesome book. So when it rained this evening, I […]
Squirt likes helping Aaron with his calculus! The problems are hard, and Aaron’s solution manual is a comfortable place to sleep while Squirt waits for Aaron to get the correct answer.
This afternoon I observed a very light-colored House Finch at the front feeder. The patches of light brown, almost white, on his face were intriguing, so I got out the camera for a closer look. With my zoom lens I could see that this was a juvenile bird, molting into his male adult plumage. Goldilocks […]
I took pity on my pansy-loving kitty tonight. After replanting one of my flower beds with summer flowers from Lukas, I re-potted some of the old pansies and put them in a pot on the porch for Squirt. I got many purrs for thanks!
Rich and I went on vacation to Callaway Gardens this week, and our neighbors took care of Goldy and Squirt for us. We thought we left Carla, Peter, and Aaron in charge, but apparently Pickles was the one who really kept Squirt in line:
Squirt is such a vocal little cat. He’s getting more vocal as he gets older, too. Rich took this video out on the porch the other day:
Missy went for a whole day without hissing…nope, haha, April Fools! ;-)
The squirrel was back! He seems to be making his home around here…we keep seeing him around the feeders. So Squirt and the Squirrel had a bushy-tail contest. Who do you think won?
Squirt got his last pansies of the year (don’t tell him, but we can’t find them at Lowes anymore. Now he has to wait until next November for more.) We saw about 8 robins digging for worms under a tree at work this morning. They surprised us, since Rich’s parents said the robins are already […]
This is where Squirt thinks his pansies come from…and he’d like a few more, please!
This has been a Florida record – eight straight days of freezing weather! Rich was concerned that Squirt might get too cold in his room at night, so he made Squirt a tent over his cat bed. Squirt approves!

I caught my favorite little birdwatcher goofing off on the job today…
Squirt says that I haven’t posted enough pictures on this page of the backyard birdwatchers, and since I wasn’t home today to photograph the birds, here’s one of my favorite birdwatchers. (The orange birdwatcher was too busy being sleepy to pose for a picture!)
Even Mr. Squirt is likely to get presents this Christmas because the cats have an “in” with Santa…they know his wife, Missy’s Claws!
Dear Santa Claws, We’ve tried so hard to be good kitties this year! Goldy has been a perfect angel cat, and Squirt, well, Squirt could have been bad so many more times. So please, Santa, please visit our house and bring us the following… a six-pack of pansies for Squirt’s chewing pleasure a few goldyfinches […]
Oh happy day! Despite the record heat, Lowes began stocking pansies, so Squirt got his first pansy fix of the year. Then he got to spend the whole afternoon out on the porch…what more could a little kitty cat want?
Squirt spent the weekend relaxing on the porch in the warm sunshine. He kicked back on the grill and popped open a new six-pack…of pansies, of course!!
