The Mighty Chicken of Kauai



In Kauai, not only is the dirt red…so are the chickens.

T-Shirt Tuesday: Eeyore

Bearing in mind my mood this week, I thought I should go with this particular shirt.

T-Shirt Tuesday: Eeyore

Here’s the front of the shirt.



And the back.



I’m not really sure how I ended up with this shirt. Was it Koshvader’s at one point, or was that one Winnie the Pooh? Perhaps I inherited it from another member of my family? (Sister Mine? Any ideas?) Well, it doesn’t matter how I came buy it, really. I happen to love Eeyore. I even have obnoxious Eeyore slippers (the better to freak out my cats, apparently.) So, I expect that this shirt will remain in my collection for the foreseeable future.

Tales from the Weekend


This weekend in four pictures and also some words.


Here we see Frisbee, who has decided to leap up on the desk (from the floor!!) and in the process scratched my hand and typed a whole lot of the number 7. This is a new thing of his. (He’s done it a whole two times so far.) As you can see, I took a picture and giggled before I made him get down.



Imagine if you will: I’m in the kitchen and Samwise starts his “pay attention to me” yowl from somewhere around the corner. So I come out, only to find what you can see above. Sam had somehow gotten into the clothes hamper (he was in with the lights, for the record) and then kindly stayed long enough for me to photograph him. No idea what that was all about.



Did you know that Frisbee occasionally works part time as a pillow? Well, now you do courtesy of a certain Little Bear that was visiting us today. (This just in: I now have art on my fridge.)

Saturday Confession: I Like Foxes



(Just clip art this time, sadly)

What is your favorite animal? As with favorite colors, most folks seem to have a favorite animal, but for years it seemed that I only had a few animals that I rather liked. (Cats, dogs, gorillas…) But then finally, one day I realized…

Saturday Confession: My favorite animal is the fox. I think it might have something to do with their being the most cat-like canid. Either that, or their sheer beauty. Or, possibly, it could be one of my friends in High School who thought I sort of resembled one. (If so, that makes me a vixen. *giggle*) Who can say?
