Look, I’m famous! I’m on Facebook!

Hamlet is excited at seeing yesterday’s photo on my computer. He seems to like technology.

68 degrees, bare feet and capris in mid-February. Mimi and I took a little time to clean up outdoors and now we are listening to robins singing the good night song.

And a special edition—I was so excited this crocus bloomed this morning. I really thought it needed another day!


Ahhhhh. This poor crocus has been trying to bloom for months, a little frostbitten on the tips, but still fresh and vibrant, and very welcome.

Bath Sequence, 2015

The beginning of the bath, washing their own faces.

Jelly Bean found the good bath spot on the roll of paper towels and Mr. Sunshine soon joined him. But no two of the Four can be bathing near each other without going rounds to catch each others’ hard to reach spots. They begin and end with their own faces but do a pretty thorough cleaning behind the other brother’s ears before they are done.

On the Prowl, 2012

Stalking the wild crackle ball.

Mewsette is just waiting for that sparkly crackle ball to make one false move and it’s curtains! You can tell by the curl in her tail that it’s a tense moment.

Nearly everyone took some time to play a little tub hockey with the crackle ball which suddenly showed up out of nowhere after being AWOL for a few months. They like just about any ball, especially in the tub, but the crackle ball makes a really satisfying noise whenever it moves and even when they pick it up.

It also fits perfectly in the tub drain with just enough protruding to pull it back out and start all over again. Mewsette’s game of tub hockey turned into miniature golf as she scored several holes in one, and holes in several.
