Bien sur, that was Moses yesterday, being all relaxed and comfy on the bed. That is one of the few photos where you can really see his missing leg.
It’s two weeks, yesterday, that he’s been gone, so I’m feeling a little sentimental.
ya liked yesterdays’ post, huh? I thought it was pretty cool myself. I actually didn’t even know that photograph turned out as well as it did until I looked at the memory card over the weekend.
This photo is of a swan at Lake Eola, downtown Orlando. (You can see the lake and some downtown office buildings in the background.)
My husband and I were downtown taking some photos for a local photo contest downtown after work on a Friday night. The swans are what this lake is known for –
– along with the geese and ducks and anhinga’s and ibis’s and herons and such that inhabit the lake and the little island in the lake:
Now, you really shouldn’t feed the swans, as there are signs all over the park saying that the swans are on a particular diet and don’t feed them bread they are on a strict diet but people feed them anyway so they are used to humans around feeding them.
This guy was one of those that thought I was going to feed him.
Nate got out of the way when he saw the swan coming. I stood up from my crouched position, but had my camera down at my side with my finger on the button, ready to take aim when he got close enough.
And sure enough, he did.
I took photo after photo of this guy trying to peck at my camera. Thankfully he never pecked at my leg.
Yesterday’s photo was of Wolfie in the backyard. I had set that bowl out to gather the lettuce for a salad. She’s almost like a dog, she’ll follow me around, meowing at me, then if I give her the slightest attention, she rolls over on her back for a belly rub. And she’s got a fat belly so there’s a lot to rub.
Yesterday’s photo was of Moses’ tail as he was trying to hide from me in front of the car. He’ll do that from time to time when I go out to feed him.
None of the cats have ever gotten up in the car engine – it’s too freakin hot here for that – and they always run from any incoming cars. Don’t worry, they are fine.
No Wordless Wednesday or follow up Thursday post? What the hell happened?
My a/c unit died, is what happened. I spent the better part of last week getting quotes for a new system from vendors, and had the whole, new thing installed yesterday. They arrive around 8a and didn’t leave until 4p. Puppies and I stayed on the back patio to stay out of the working mens way, which was still hot, even with the occasional breeze. After they left, I did something I don’t normally do: I set the air to 75 and basked in its coolness. I even needed a blanket.
I’d still like to nap for another whole day.
Back to regular business tomorrow. Have a comfortable day today.
As you may know, we recently took a trip to St. Augustine. With cameras in tow, we took all kinds of photos:
The photo from yesterday is of a cemetery gate from a private plot at the Huguenot Cemetery in St. Augustine. The cemetery is over 100 years old, it’s amazing how the gate is still intact, and legible, after all these years.
Old things, history, antiques, these things are all fascinating to me. The stories they could tell.
