Vintage Photo: Autumn 1974

So this is not my photo, and I’m not sure whose shadow that is at the bottom but I’d bet it’s that baby’s mother. She’s my niece Jennifer, and this was autumn 1974. That shadow would be my sister, Cynthia, who took most of the photos I have from that

From the Archives: August 15, 2006

When I looked up “Stripes on Stripe”, the photo of Stanley that I posted on August 15, I had a wonderful time looking through all the photos in the folder taken on the same day. It was apparently a hot August day, but Stanley and I had been in the

Vintage Photo: Get a Bath, Pay It Forward, 2010

In photos from this day in August 2010, Dickie, Kelly and Cookie have a chain reaction bath. You get a free bath, you return the favor by giving a free bath to someone else. First, Dickie, the main bath giver of the time, stopped Kelly and gave her a bath

Daily Photo Reprise: Cookie in the Pasta Bowl, 2010

This was the first one of all! Good thing I checked the bowl before I filled it with the mellowed fresh tomatoes and balsamic vinaigrette! I warmed my big round pasta bowl in the oven, then set it on the counter while I ran outside to get a couple branches

From the Archives: The Persistence of Cats

If you remember the painting by Salvador Dali, “The Persistence of Memory”, where clocks are draped over a tree branch, off the edge of a table and over an amorphous rounded object, it’s that painting that people refer to when they say, “It’s like that Dali painting,” when inanimate objects

Daily Photo Reprise: A Little Dose of Afternoon Sweetness, 2011

From August 16, 2012: I have a video to share of total sweetness in a kitty. You might remember that Kelly was my Lead Crochet Tester, and that she immediately occupied anything crocheted in any form—under construction, headed for the wash, being worn by me, it didn’t matter, when Kelly

Daily Sketch Reprise: Kelly Has a Drink, 2012

What legs! Kelly really does have long legs, especially when she does her drinking dance, solidly planting all four paws, then prancing her hind paws and waving her tail while she drinks. There’s something so precious about Kelly drinking; I think it has to do with her timid nature, yet

Daily Photo Reprise: Kelly the Studio Cat

I’ve been waiting for this one to come around. Of all the photos I have of Kelly from the 16 years she lived with me—and there were very, very many—this photo is my favorite, and can you believe she is 17 years old in this photo? Kelly never seemed to

Daily Photo Reprise: Cookie Picks Her Own Sweet Corn, 2011

If there was any doubt that Cookie liked sweet corn, she proved it wrong every time I brought some into the house, whether it was from my garden or from the market. Last year, I barely had time to remove the salad greens and peppers from the basket before Cookie

Daily Photo Reprise: Cookie in Speckles, 2011

Cool, sunny summer mornings are rare, but if they are not spent outside, they are best spent by the basement door, at eye level with all that’s going on in the back yard, catching the breeze and enjoying the play of sun and shadow. So says Cookie, a connoisseur of
