What Could Possibly Be More Interesting?

Thursday afternoon I roamed the house and terrace trying to get pictures of the new and old plants The plants on the terrace are thriving and filling the space with color. Even the amaryllis is blooming again. But those pictures will have to wait.

Moose and Dudo assumed I was looking for them. Moose jumped to the top of their indoor tree, curled coyly on his back for a cuddle, and then gave me his best profile.

After paying the appropriate homage, I headed to the terrace. Dudo saw the camera and assumed I was there for him. So he jumped on their outdoor tree for HIS close-up. I gave up completely when Moose followed seconds later. It IS all about them, anyway.

MOOSE: "I'M IRRESISTIBLE, HUH?"
DUDO: "HOW'S THIS ANGLE?
IGNORE THE CROWN OF THORNS IN THE BACKGROUND."
BOTH: "WHAT ELSE COULD POSSIBLY BE OF INTEREST OUT HERE?!?"
(IT COULDN'T BE THE FLAME VINE BEGINNING TO CLIMB THE TRELLIS?)

      That Moose pose was after he had done every kind of "adorable" contortion. I cuddled and praised him and then picked up the camera. He becomes much more glamorous (and indifferent) when he sees the camera.

      Thanks. I also widened the format so I could share a larger standard photo size (so you don't always have to click for enlargements... except sometimes, like my next post...)

      Yep, that's my parents at my aunt and uncle's wedding in 1946, the year before their own wedding. They were 19 and 20!

  5. Buddy is much the same, if I try and do anything within his zone (2 feet off the floor or 2 feet off the bed) he has to get his nose right in it. Yesterday he "supervised" me cleaning house. Your furry kids are so bloody cute!

      I spend a lot of my day singing, "Me and My Shadow." And I love it... usually.

  6. As Gloria Swanson said in "Sunset Boulevard", your cats seem to be saying, "I'm ready for my close-up."

      Dudo poses. Moose tends to turn away. Every so often he cooperates, but never for long.

      Dudo loves the camera. Moose usually gets annoyed.

      At first glance people can't tell Dudo and Moose apart but on a secon look you realize how different their markings are. Jerry planted two tubs of little crown of thorns. They are thriving.

      These two are our shadows. With us not working they have grown up expecting us to always be around. So much love.
