Stretching Squirrel

 

 

A while ago I went hiking at the nearby state park and I happened to see the most random thing…

 

 

There was this squirrel chattering in a tree not too far from the trail I was on.  That’s not random but what it did, was…  And it was hilarious!

 

 

It hung from the side of the tree by its hind feet (paws?), stretched out, and waived its arms around in the air like it was swimming!  I wish I’d caught it on video but I only managed to snap a photo before it stopped and scampered off.

Keep an eye out for wildlife when you’re out in nature folks, sometimes they do some funny stuff!

 

 

 

 

Until next time…

Spoiled Kitties

 

 

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but my cats are incredibly spoiled.  Those of you who love cats probably know exactly what I’m talking about.

 

 

Anyway, my cats are so spoiled, they have numerous beds of their own to choose from yet they always seem to end up in a chair or on the couch where my seat was vacated for less than a minute.  They always give me the same look when I come back to my seat too…  “What?  You got up.  Your loss.”  And to show how spoiled they are, I don’t even bother moving them from my seat, I simply find another place to sit.  Sad?  Maybe.  I prefer to say it’s out of love, not that they own the place and simply allow me to live here to feed them and clean their litter box.  [-_^]  I heard a saying once that’s spot on, “Dogs have owners, Cats have staff.”

 

 

But, here’s proof…

 

 

Lazy Spoiled Kitties

 

I was ejected from not one, but two seats by both cats.  And what did I do when I returned to said seats to find they‘d been shanghaied?  I tucked in the napping fur babies and found another place to sit.

 

 

I’m weak, I know.

 

 

 

 

Until next time…

Welcome 2017

 

 

Apologies for the lack of a post last Monday.  I would have made this post then, but I was without internet service for an entire week.  Gotta love it when tech support knows the issue is on their end but treats you like it’s on yours and runs you around in circles.  [>_<]

 

 

Anyway, time to ring in a new year.  I hope this year will be better than last year.  We saw far to many beloved celebrities pass last year and I hope that doesn’t carry over into this year.

 

 

But, one thing I’m not looking forward to is the coming presidential inauguration.  I don’t want to get into a political debate with anyone here as I loathe politics to the core, but I just can’t stand that man (I can’t stand him so much I won’t even type his name).

 

 

One thing I’ve always done for everyone, regardless of who they are, is give them the benefit of the doubt.  Maybe things will change for the better, maybe things will get much worse.  I know what my gut’s telling me, but I’ll wait and see.

 

 

Anyway, doom and gloom aside… I think the biggest issue I’m going to struggle with, at least for the next month or two, is getting into the habit of writing 2017 instead of 2016!  Anyone else have that problem?

 

 

New year’s resolutions for the coming year: Take more pictures, write, live a healthier lifestyle (less TV, more exercise).

 

 

Just a reminder, folks, this year I’ll be posting every other Monday instead of every Monday.

 

 

 

Until next time…

Zora’s Domain

 

No amount of inclement weather or drastic change in temperature will stop the Hero of Time!  (Don’t look at me like that, we’ve already established that I’m a nerd)

 
Though the weather was bleak and cold, Link still found the strength to pay a visit to the Zora’s Domain. But why? Well, that I’ll leave to your imagination.

 

 

Link in the Zora Domain

 

 

If you’re lost and don’t know what I’m talking about, I urge you to go play a Legend of Zelda game. I’d recommend Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, or Skyward Sword.

 

Don’t worry, next week’s post won’t be nerdy. I figured I’d give my readers a break from my geekness (plus Link could use a break too! [-_^]).

 

 

 

Until next time…

Silly Cat!

 

My cats are a constant source of entertainment, yet ninety percent of the time they’re not trying and are just doing what cats do.  Be it running aimlessly through the house like they’re chasing something (or being chased), playing with a paper ball instead of the numerous toys that have been bought for them, just rolling around on the floor lookin’ all cute, or whatever the case may be.

 

For example, my cat Abby in addicted to treats.  I joke that she needs rehab as she tries to scam a treat from everyone and every room in the house.  But she goes a step further where her dry cat food is involved.  She greatly enjoys the “tender middle” type cat food and has a strict “No Kernel Left Behind” policy.

 

 

No Kernel Left Behind

 

You go get ‘em, Abby!

 

 

 

Until next time…
