My handsome baby boy. He posed for me when I asked. Usually, he decides when I have the camera pointed at him, that it is time to mark the camera.

Observer

As an observer of life, I find that things are more interesting outside rather than inside. But then you humans do something that makes me look inward again. Oh, well the sun feels good no matter which direction I choose to cast my gaze.  ~Neko

Star of the Show

Why yes, I am the star of the show. Why watch what’s on TV when you can study my handsome visage. What? I’m blocking your view of a pretty good looking steak. Well, why should I care? You wouldn’t share if you had it.  ~Gizmo

As much as I dislike the Texas weather. I do have to admit that we have some beautiful sunsets down here. The sunrises aren’t anything to sneeze about either.

This was my view while letting my niece practice her driving skills in a local parking lot. Good news we survived.

Suspicion

You know how you suspect someone is watching you? You feel little prickles of awareness but everywhere you look there is no one to be found. Yeah, I had that feeling this morning in the bathroom. Guess who I found being a “Peeping Tom”? Mr. Neko was hiding from the rest of the clowder on top of the cabinet above the toilet.

Total Eclipse of the What??

As the title may suggest I was all excited this morning when I woke, knowing that today we would be witness to a cosmic event. A total solar eclipse. This is where our little moon feels frisky and passes between the Earth and the sun. It doesn’t happen often, the last one was way back in 1918 on June 8th. And the next one isn’t until April 8, 2024. So for any who missed it, start working on your projectors, you have only eight more years to wait.

The above picture was taken about an hour before the eclipse was due to happen. As you can see the sun was shining brightly down here in Central Texas. Don’t pay any attention to my wind-blown hair. My family and I each took turns taking pictures of the big flaming ball of fire up in the sky. It kind of felt like a holiday. Picture the ancients dancing around waiting to be terrified when the sun suddenly burns out and goes dark.

So flash forward to the event du jour. My brother has been keeping tabs on the progress as it occurred in each state. What? It just happened in Wyoming, it’s getting closer. News reports are now saying it is closing in and to be ready. Okay, I get ready to film it using my phone. By the way, those reports that said you could watch it all go down by using your phone set on selfie mode, you should be whipped with a soggy noodle. Those reports were false.

Anyhow, there I was phone set to record the event of the summer. Well, I’ll let the picture speak for itself. I never got to turn on the video. I just got a picture to prove the phone idea sucked.

Behold the Solar Eclipse of 2017. Breathtaking isn’t it. My brother has already said he is ordering some welders goggles for the next one. I think I will be getting me some of those fancy schmancy paper goggles, there ought to be a bunch going up on E-Bay soon. You know “Only used once, hardly worn Eclipse goggles. Only $59.99 plus s/h.” I am looking for bargains. Does anyone have a cheap pair?

 

Guard Duty

I am very good a guarding my gal. That other fella needs to move on and find his own lady. ~Bo Jangles

I am so not his girl. He just can’t take a clue. Oh, well, this one time I’ll let him handle my dirty work and keep the new guy away from me. ~CeCe

I, for one, could care less what you do. I am just lounging up here to make the human upset by blocking the TV. Just leave me alone. ~Gizmo

Whoever said I was too big for this napping place is a liar. See I fit just fine.

Now I’m not saying it might take a moment for me to totally uncurl from this position but hey, that is where cat yoga comes in handy. ~Neko
