Melvin & I play dominoes.

Sometimes I pretend he isn't cheating.

Intrepid Explorer

When Archie came home from the vet hospital on May 10th, Webby was intrigued - "How's this thing work?"

Earth Day

For Earth Day, we participated in the 8:30-9:30 pm "lights out," getting by with two candles, the occasional cell phone screen or pocket flashlight.

I wandered around the house quite a bit at first, appreciating the darkness. Looking out windows. Nobody else seemed to be doing it. Not much publicity, I guess.

Jo spent most of the time sending txt or talking on phone. After I was through wandering, I did some block play & photography.

What with the camera, phones, led flashlights, & various glowing power LEDs here & there, we were far from electricity/electronics-free or totally dependent on candle light. But the candles were our primary illumination for most of the hour, it was interesting to see what we could do.

Seems like I haven't posted a cat picture here for a while. This is Archie at ease.

Since I got out of the hospital after leukemia treatment, he has been spending a lot more time in my lap, but here he is next to me.

I held a magnifying glass in front of my cell phone camera lens to take this picture - I was hoping for some interesting effects, but it seems like all I got was a better closeup than I would have gotten otherwise.

It's a good camera.

Archie's a good cat.
