More fluffy pantaloons.

Fluffy beard in the wind.


And as always just because I can here is your pretty for the weekend

thehamish is playing pool ball.
He kicks the ball into the pool and then waits for the ball to come back to the edge so he can 
take it out. He loves playing this game.  He is such a funny little dog with a broken tail.

Wednesday in Imperialistic Cat Land.

Just another day on the range with gud dud herding cats and javelinas. 

I have written before that Son who lives with me is a volunteer at the Humane Society.
He loves cats and works with them getting them ready for adoption.
He has fallen in love with several of the cats but after all this time has opened
his heart to two overlooked bonded 11 year old black cats.
The adoption was finalized just before the HSSA Newsletter came out for Fall.
We have stars living with us now.
Merida is on the left and Oliver on the right.


As always just because I can here is your pretty for the middle of the week.


do catties taste like chkikin'

Gud dug imperialistic cats and some other stuff

Well here it is another Monday following an non-action packed weekend of
gud dugs, imperialistic cats and some other stuff.

Remember the new window that replaced Watson's smaller window ?
thehamish is using it now.
I heard thehamish gurrrrrrin' very low and see him looking out the window.

When I look out my window, above his, there was a herd of Javelinas walking
through the citrus grove.
Since we have had so much monsoon rain this summer they are fat and happy so just
stopped long enough for a quick drink and kept on moseyin'

Look at the top right and you will see a javelina drinking at one of the ponds.

A bum, two legs and a part of a head.

yesh bord bord bordin' i thehamish is waitin' for dinner
so hard hard hard for a gud dug like i thehamish

little buggie botherin' i thehamish

not tastin' gud
defently' no chkikin'

le sigh

i thehamish is hungry need fud

Son took this great photo of Oliver sitting in the screens, as cats will do.
Yes, he has named kitty boy Oliver Winston. Kitty Girl stays Merida.
Even though Winston was my first pick and then we came up with Oliver,
which is an easier name and sounds happy. 
Plus like Frances said it has three syllables and I also like that sound.


Of course just because I can here is your pretty to start the week.

 One of my entries to John's Flower and Veg Show, that didn't win.
It is the angryparsnip eating the dreaded carrot.
Like everyone who picks carrots instead of the tastier parsnip !
Naughty !

A dog a cat and a rain storm walk into a bar

Wednesday in Tucson has been pretty interesting,
gud dugs, naughty cats and monsoons !
What can a mum do ?

 Merdia and Winston.
She was the outgoing happy one but now not so much.  She hisses at her brother
spends time alone in the shoji screens or under the bed. At night she kicks Winston off the bed.
Meanwhile the shy Winston is walking around, sitting on the bed (daytime) looking out the window
or jumping over the gate to explore.
Cats ! ! !

 i thehamish got a new strange toy
nice tall person who feed us said it is for the kittie when they come in the
mums studio 
ha i thehamish is not understands this toy is toy
not sure how i thehamish can play with this


 My studio is torn up again. 
I have been decluttering. Tossing those bits and bobs that I know I will
need sometime because I will need  them. . . they are gone ! 
As I was cleaning up the floor I tossed thehamish's toys in the basket he napps in.
Among all the other baskets and pillows that are in the studio but oh no that is where he had to 
nap off and on all day ! Scrunching and sighing plus a few squeaky sounds as he settled in.
Nonsense !
Gud Dugs ! ! !

 Monsoons storms are still here.

 Rain on my window. I know many of you are use to this but for me what a wonderful
much need sight to us desert dwellers.

 It is raining Tucson style. Sun shining and rain coming down. 
Check out the roof water flowing out of the drain bottom left. 
 I was trying to show Daughter my super short hair style. All the drugs I take have 
have left me with little hair and bald spots. So what better accessory but a Scottish Terrier,
who was looking at Winston.

As always, just because I can here is your pretty for the middle of the week.
This was listed a ugly Godzilla Christmas Sweater.
Just who do these people think they are ?
Christmas gud, Godzilla gud so why is this ugly ?
Silly people.
Nonsense !

Monday with dogs and cats !

Episode 1
Star Date 2016
Day 5
Hour 12.6
Minutes 7.5
Seconds 16.2
Year forever
Happy Happy Joy Joy living with dogs and cats it is a sort of purrgatory.

As I said Friday thehamish knows that there is something in Adam's room.
So today the door was open and the gate was put up.
thehamish is ecstatic ! Sniffed and  laid down at the gate. 
The cats would have nothing to do with him. 
Merida was under the bed and Winston was just around the desk, peaking around the chair.
Winston did come out and moved into thehamishe's line of sight but no closer.
Treats were put down near the gate but this is going to take a long time.
The cats can come out and explore a bit but when they see thehamish and me walking towards
them, zoom and the most elegant jump back over the gate.
thehamish stays with me in the studio most of the day.
He usually spends most of the day with me but now it is somewhat sad.
 i thehamish wants to come in

 Merida is behind the Japanese Shoji screens at Adam's window.

 She is squished in, can you see her left eye looking back ?

 Winston is watching her. 
Hey I am suppose to be there not you !
Meow !
So as you can tell the cats names are:

Winston (Churchill) or Oliver (Cromwell).

I came up with Winston and son liked the name but son out of the blue
started calling him Oliver today.
We couldn't figure out why that named popped into his head.
Then he remembered I was streaming "Monarchy" a few days ago.
Adam walked in when the chapter on Oliver Cromwell was playing.
We had a great conversation about him.
So that is the question, a Prime Minister/Statesman  or a Puritan Parliamentarian.
Which name do you like ?

Merida is from the movie "Brave" we both like this name.

As always just because I can here is your pretty to start the week.

hey i thehamish liken' kitties
