More Friday cat blogging

Little One looks out from a tub. I'd put the container away but Little One seems to like to sit in it and look out on the world.

Meanwhile PuddyTat threads her way between Tommie and Tim to get a scritch. The other is Little One with his long tail erect as usual. Jellico won't stay on the cathouse roof when I'm outside and Dudie never gets up there unless there is nothing else to eat below and he is really hungry.

Friday cat blogging

Only one cat photo so far today and it is most unusual. Dudie allowing Little One to lap up the warm milk and egg mixture with him. Light streak from the door is unavoidable unfortunately. Little One isn't so little now.

Meanwhile it is fall here. The silver maple on the right is always the last to lose leaves. The red leaved white oak on the left was found while mowing years ago and carefully preserved. The live oak next to it is probably the same age - around 40. And, yes, I've been here longer than 40 years. The black or choke - don't know which - cherry tree is quickly losing its leaves and giving Little One something to chase. When the two oaks lose their leaves, I'll know spring is here.

I'm happy to be back in turtlenecks and sweats. I love summer but I also love fall, winter and spring. I'm blessed to be able to live where I'd like to live.

Worship to remember!!!

Yesterday I drove from home to Philadelphia to sing with the choir of St Luke and the Epiphany for confirmation and a celebration of St Luke. There were several attractions. The organist Jonathan posted the program on Facebook. I asked to sing as he is a fellow Westminster Choir College alum. He said a classmate of mine Verdean would be the soloist, the bishop of New Hampshire would be the celebrant and I was welcome to sing. Being a longtime choir slut and a big fan of +Gene Robinson, I went.

Verdean's beautiful voice is wrapped in an equally beautiful person. It was good to see her again.

I caught a remote photo of +Gene before the service.

And a couple during the eucharist.
It was worth the 800 mile drive!
