Friday cat blogging on Saturday

Little One is out and about today. He pushed his way into Dude's box. This didn't last long. Dude moved out onto the green blanket next to the window. The photo is a bit deceiving but, yes, Little One does have a much smaller head than any of the other boys. I don't know enough about kittens to know if that will change. He isn't a year old yet. He has a very long body with a tail to match. He allows me to scritch and stroke him again. I heard him purr for the first time this morning.

Dude has been out and about the last couple of days. From his bloody pawprints, he seems to go to the garage and back.

Sunset on a rare sunny January day

Hopefully tomorrow those icicles will be gone.

I've been following the Prop 8 trial via Prop8trialtracker, Firedoglake and 365Gay. Interesting enough to be more addictive than Facebook.

Neighborhood snow photos

The marina doesn't look very hospitable today.

This is where everyone sleds. It is VERY steep. The face of the dam - on the right, has a fierce BUMP on the way down. I seem to remember that there is a second bump farther down but many don't make it that far.
The evergreens are special this year.
I love the snowy branches.

Our bay.

This looks like a Christmas card photo.
Across the pond toward my house and barn.
For all the inconvenience, worries about heat and ice, iffy driving, tough walking and other problems typical of this weather, our world has been absolutely gorgeous so far this winter.
