This very large bird was feasting on something on the ice down by the dam this afternoon. I tried to get closer and got the Prius stuck in the snow. Of course I carry a shovel - along with sleeping bag, food, water and suitcase full of survival gear - in the "trunk" so I could dig myself out. Eagles are one of the joys of living here.
First, a bit of sadness. Lexie has joined the herd of cats keeping the Company of Heaven on the straight and narrow, reminding all that servanthood (toward them) is the position of those who seek to follow Jesus and keeping humility of humanoids alive and well.
Meanwhile a bit of feline singing interrupted the news about Egypt yesterday. The singer wandered away before I got there - Tommie - and the newcomer vanished when s/he saw me. I did manage to get this iPhone photo of Jellico and the pretty new black and white cat before the latter caught a glimpse of me and ran away. Probably a female since the folks with her were competing males. I've seen a black and white cat up by the road when I've gone for the mail which is probably the same one. This is the first time I've seen her down here tho.
Meanwhile Tim ventured up to the cathouse roof for the first time in several years and immediately took possession of a box. She and PuddyTat had a spat this morning resulting in a bit of blood on the window. Neither seemed to be nursing any damage afterward tho. They have never been friends tho they will eat together if they have no choice. Tim is on the right with PT on the left. They probably have the same father. I suspect Furry was Tim's mother. Of course the smaller cat is in the larger box.
For Margaret and Joel who are true disciples ministering to the people on the poorest Native American reservation in the US. And especially for Margaret who has more funerals in a month than most priests have in several years. And thanks for allowing the children to call her Grandma. She is the best possible person/priest in her position. For Peg and Jim. For all those who believe that guns can solve our problems. For our dysfunctional Congress. For Christ Church Meadville. For R and D especially for R. For me. For Ward. For Bro John. For Jim, especially. For those in the church who are distressed. For A as she deals with dysfunction. For Ginny. For Amelia. For Julie Anne. For Danny. For Amy. For J's mom. For Art and Mary. For rain in California. For Jeri. For Caleb and those who research RA. For J and D. For Tim and Ruth. For Ted. For VC and N. For Lee. For S and P.
