Namir and Cookie curled back to back on my lap, breathing deeply, fast asleep, after we’d come back inside from “working” out in the yard and I sat down at my computer to “work” inside. It was hard to break the spell of spending time together, all three of us.
I’m guessing it was work because I’m wearing one of my flannel shirts that I typically wear out into the yard when I’m doing some actual work, at this of year it would be cleanup of some sort. It never mattered, anything was good, especially on the short days at the end of the year. I took the photo in two shots, so that I could get both hands in there, then merged them in Photoshop.
Kind of a follow-up from this essay from last year on this date, a photo of Namir and Cookie and Me from the first year we spent time outside in the yard.
Well, not exactly this date, but close enough.
Photos From the Archives and Vintage Photos
Photos pulled “From the Archives” were taken by one or another digital camera of mine between 2002 and, well, yesterday, but usually they are older than that, and I had never had the chance to feature them. Vintage Photos are from my film archives back to 1983 when I purchased my Pentax K-1000 camera. They’re a fun way to “introduce” other members of my feline family who came and went before I began blogging, and to illustrate my feline family in general from days gone by.

From several years ago, one of those mornings, I think Cookie is watching Namir. I like the odd angle, the blur and the crop. It’s as if I’m standing right there with Cookie, looking over her ear as I often did. Read more and purchase.
