Here's something you maybe didn't know about me.
I packed away my SLR camera, bought a "click click" and only took photos at parties and events. It took 6 years before I even removed my Nikon from the camera case on the top shelf. *grins* Which happened because I had this new baby girl and she was AWESOMELY photogenic!
This fascinated me this week, driving to pick up Princess from her school up in the mountains. When we were house shopping, twenty years ago, I declined to buy in this so lovely and pretty area after my Datsun and I spent an afternoon trapped in a ditch. I saw this and thought... "I SO understand how they would have done this." There was a little grass fire under it, but it went out even as I waited for the "slow" sign to be turned by the Ambulance officers directing traffic.

Out front of a Delicious Chocolate shop. The driver was probably delirious from cocoa overdose. (I would be!)
See that face?? That so smug, pleased with myself because I am the most awesome of Geriati-cats, with arthritis and I'm 15, but I can still climb that tree. I think I love the Evil, Dominating, Shoulder Cat who rules our domain so much because she is so honest about her emotions and intentions. No trying to be polite for company or putting on a good face. If she's mad, she'll viciously attack you, if she's pleased she'll show it and if she loves you, she will smooch you and purr louder than a diesel truck going up a hill.
|I'm good. And you know it. You can worship me, my pet can opener.|
Steve and I were playing with the camera today at circus.
That's my arm. And three, pretty, shiny, sparkly, lovely hoops.
Apparently, also the number 11.
|This is the whole reason why hoops have the peppermint style stripes on them. To get those cool patterns when you spin them.|
One of our Boy Cats. Being allowed to rest in peace because the Princess was at school. We call him the Heat Sink because he will absorb heat from any source, sometimes becoming so hot that touching him is uncomfortable. He loves indoor fires and will sleep close enough to get sparks burning his fur AND NOT CARE!
|I have sun from the East, I have sun from the North. I am also sitting above the heater. Acceptable.|
There is talk of a Caberet style performance next term. I want in. I have been thinking of costuming for the act I want to present. Digging around in my costume box, I found a friend's now-retired belly dancing skirt. So I put it on. It made me want to spin like a 5 year old and have the skirt do... this!!
|Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee (wobble) eeeeeeee (wobble wobble) eeeeeeee!|
