Paladin is not drinking coffee!

Paladin is drinking cold water from a well rinsed percolator. He is very adept at these things.

Touch of fog. . .

This is the viewshed primeval. 

I normally have a view of the hills of Hell’s Canyon. Today I had hoped to go to Walmart, but I called my friend who works there and she assured me that she could not see across the street from her house or across the Walmart parking lot a few rows. My aspiration of new towels was dashed, utterly and for hours, if today at all.

Contentedness Defined

Paladin naps with his favorite catnip-filled toys. His serenity is remarkable. My husband calls it “Contentedness defined,” and hence an appropriate flamboyant title, which does not disturb Paladin in the least.

I’m dreaming of a grey Christmas. . .

I’m dreaming of a grey Christmas. . .

A grey and cloudy vista can be morale boosting or demoralizing. Personally I have no real preference. I like clouds. I can’t imagine a bright sunny Christmas day in the northwestern prairie where I live.

Effie Just in Case

Effie’s Dad is a lawyer, so she naturally thought she should have a brief case of her own. She had no way to express  this, other than to express the fairness of her desire, so she climbed into my husband’s file-filled brief case to make her point, which we found most endearing.

Paladin and Effie Love Their Toys

Paladin received seven wonderful toys containing organic catnip from the 4Cats company in Germany, thanks to Marc-Andre at Katzenworld. This tiger-striped one is his favorite.

Effie loves her catnip-stuffed heart that sticks to her blanketed chair and appropriated the heart that was part of the catnip toy contingent.
