Basil watched me work outside the window in the early evening, and also watched the birds in the trees and the clouds going by. Always have the camera ready, you never know when you’ll get an interesting shot. Even though the screen shows as a pattern it’s still interesting. The colors in the background are the opposite hill in full evening sun seen through my back door on the other side of the kitchen.

A neat desk is a sign that you don’t have enough cats. On the flipside, they also give you an excuse for a messy desk. The boys made the most of their supervisory shift yesterday. I don’t think they will ever outgrow cuddling.

The Magic Shopping Bag, 2012
Same boys, three years ago.
I unpacked my groceries when I got home, and just as I thought I had emptied the bag I turned around and there was a black kitty in there! Where did he come from?! I didn’t go to the store where they have kitties for adoption, so how could a kitty have gotten into my bag, and under all my groceries?
Then I saw the white brushes in the kitty’s ears—it was Jelly Bean! And he had neatly hopped into my really big and tall shopping bag without touching the sides. What a kitty! Then he jumped back out without touching the sides.
Not to be outdone, Mr. Sunshine was next. “Take my picture please,” said the confident Mr. Sunshine, waiting patiently while I focused on his nose.
And then Giuseppe saw what was up, and you know that all three boys have to do the same things together. Giuseppe hadn’t been in on the beginning so he wasn’t sure what to do. Still, when Mr. Sunshine jumped out of the bag, Giuseppe jumped in and sat down to look at me. “Is this what I’m supposed to do? Am I just supposed to sit here?” he asked. Giuseppe is a little bit of a worrier.
“That’s perfect, Giuseppe,” I told him. “Just stay exactly as you are while I take your photo…and in fact, you can stay just exactly as you are forever, all of you, because you’re all such perfectly nice kitties!”
So that’s the story of the Magic Shopping Bag, silly but true.
