Outside Looking In

Clovie hears something outside his window. It's me out on a hot summer night turning off the sprinkler. I look in and say hello.
He's so darn cute, he makes me smile.

Good Day, Sunshine

It is a good day when you have sunshine in the Northwest.  Summer took forever to get here.  I took this picture of Mt. Rainier today.  This great view of the mountain happens to be from atop the Pierce County Landfill. What a waste of good real estate. (Is there a pun in there?) You're probably wondering why anyone would choose to go to the dump on such a beautiful sunny day...

Clovis and I spent some time together enjoying the cool morning air from the open windows in his room. We had a pile of greens, carrot sticks, strawberries, coffee, and the Sunday paper. Hard for me to believe he is turning six.

Happy Birthday Clove! And many more.

Clovis likes to be petted but only on his terms. When he's ready he'll flatten himself like a pancake and shut his little eyes. When he's had enough he runs off and gives himself a bath. Our cat bathes after I pet her too.

I'm a little offended. I keep my hands pretty clean...
