It Finally Looks Like Winter

The dogs and I took a walk around the river.  It was muddy, windy and slippery, but still worth the trouble.

Bob and Jesse

Our new cat looks incredibly similar to our Bob cat.   I thought we had decided to name our new cat Jesse, but Boyd informed me tonight that the cat prefers to be called Francine. ???  Alrighty, then!

 What do you think?  Similar or not?

A Mouse Message

First, a sunrise from December 28th.



 I came home from work one evening, opened the car door and just about stepped on this poor dead mouse.  It was placed exactly where my driver's door lines up in the garage when I park.  I thought it was a lucky guess on the part of the cat until I walked around the car to get my work bag.
 That is when I saw the second mouse, again placed perfectly to the side of the driver's side door of the truck. I don't know what message the cat was trying to send, but his recognition of where to put the mouse to make sure it wasn't missed was spot on. 
Boyd says it is a message that we aren't giving Gilligan enough attention.  Although it might be true from the cat's perspective, from our point of view, the cat has received so much more attention recently.  Maybe it is because I have been feeding the cats the last few weeks because of Boyd's foot surgery.  I guess they can tell the difference.  Silly cats!

Sunset - Jan 4

Just some shots I took on Jan. 4th at sunset.   I haven't used my DSLR for weeks!  All of these photos were taken with my iPhone, just like the last post with the sunrise.



 
 Laddie and the goats are co-mingling much more peacefully these days.  I hope he is learning what is acceptable what what isn't.  He and Sass like to spar on occasion, but the goats seems to enjoy it.




Thanks to the Holmes family and the Andrew family for the trees.

December Sunrise

The sunrise was gorgeous the morning of December 27th.  These photos were all taken between 7:27 and 7:54 AM.  It's amazing to notice how much the light changes in just a short amount of time.
