Russell Brand Quote

“You cannot define yourself in reference to other external coordinates, you must define yourself internally with a relationship with a higher entity. Think of yourself as a manifestation of some higher “thing”, some higher frequency, this is the visible realization. And you know that because you can’t see atoms can you? You certainly can’t see the forces that hold atoms together. There in the micro quantum world Richard, lie the answers to everything. we can't understand it with our logical rational minds, but we feel it, intuitively. get yourself in alignment with that stuff and you BEAM like the sun.  ~Russell Brand

Bingo & Tabby Inside

We had rain-rain-rain this week. And when it wasn't raining, it was drizzling. And when it wasn't drizzling, it was spitting. And when it wasn't spitting--well, you get the idea. Various forms of water falling out of the sky. I like an atom of hydrogen with a couple atoms of oxygen as much as the next guy. And I have a point in all this and that is that I didn't take my camera out all week. So we have indoorsy pix this week.

In the office, Tabby in the "Cat House" as nephew Rowan calls it. He was all curled up, but as soon as I get down to his level, he starts coming toward me for pets. 
 In the living room:
My new rug. I'm going to recover Bingo's dog bed to be more complementary to the decor.

Bingo was on the other bed, because Tabby was on this one.

Stretching.  :-)

Hullo. Better pic of the rug. 

Bingo gets her bed back!

Belly rubs!

My dog Barkley used to sleep like this. 

Bob with a typical cat look of superiority & slight disdain.

 Monday morning:

We were walking up the driveway when Bingo spotted a leafy branch that she sniffed and then piddled on. Then as she was walking away, her foot was caught on the branch and she was dragging it along as she walked. I thought, "This must be the doggy equivalent of walking out of the bathroom with toilet paper stuck to the bottom of your shoe." 

Bingo will be going to the Wilton Hilton this week and I will be going to England with Mum & Atlasta. I don't know if I'll be blogging from there or not. We'll see!

2 Cats Talking

The title sounds like an Indian name, doesn't it? Saw this on The Animal Rescue site:

The trilling sound they're doing sounds a lot like Tabby. Anyway, a little cuteness for your Friday!

Wild Persimmon & The Rule of Thirds

 There's something called the Rule of Thirds in photography. Easier to show than tell. Here's my original photo:
I just discovered I have a wild persimmon tree. Yay, me! Also note that persimmon is smack-dab in the center of the photo. Which you don't want.  
 So I did some edits:

Apparently, this adds interest.
Here's another shot:
A bit better, not quite in the center.
 And variations:

And this has nothing to do with persimmons or thirds:

I just thought it was funny that this tree looked like it was wearing a fig leaf.

Trees & Leaves

Fall is falling, leaves are leaving and even tho we had a hot snap, Autumn is here! So here are a few Autumnish-type pix.

Back yard. Red bud leaves are turning yellow.

Down to the lake.

My little pier.
 And this is what Tabby thinks about Autumn:

Heart-shaped red bud leaves.
