I’m taking a break from my break to do a Christmas post. Merry Coyote Christmas! Happy Catmas! Merry Christmas!

Silly Kitties

Glenda

Does anyone remember Silly Putty? Is that stuff still around? We have Silly Kitties. Some of their positions are pretty putty-like.

I got this case out to measure the inside dimensions to see if a travel guitar will fit inside it. Sasha claimed the case the moment I opened it. Glenda was not too sure about Sasha appropriating the case. Is this a case of a cat casing a case? In case you are wondering, yes, a travel guitar will fit inside the case.

Only 69 Days Left

Dawn

The crescent moon shining through the clouds at dawn.

There are only 69 days left until Halloween, and Lowe’s has you covered! I walked into Lowe’s to buy some supplies for a project and was greeted by ghoulish displays.

The big guy is ten or twelve feet tall. He lights up, flashes, wiggles, and growls when you step on the button.

Spunk doesn’t give a paw about Halloween.

Loki and Glenda think they define Halloween. Silver and Spunk could care less.

We had a doozy of a thunderstorm last night. While I was out photographing the lightning, the lightning took out my gigabit switch. I turned my NAS drives back on after the power came back on and stayed on afterand they couldn’t connect to the network. I finally figured out the switch wasn’t working. I dug out an older switch that solved the connection problem, but at 100MB/s it’s the connection is really slow. I ordered a new switch and a UPS backup to plug the switch and NAS drives into.

The lightning bolt in the fifth photo was so close that the flash and the boom were simultaneous, and then a torrent of rain came pouring down. I got under the cover of the deck, but the rain was blowing into the deck through the wire, so I finally went inside.

Happy Birthday G&G

Gwendolyn

Happy 4th of July. Today is Glenda’s and Gwendolyn’s birthday. They are two years old.

Glenda

Happy 4rth of July. This is as close to getting fireworks as I’m going to get tonight.

The moon manage to shine through the cloud cover last night. No moon tonight.

Mermaid

Mermaid was happy after we finally got a decent rain last night.

We had a thunderstorm that started yesterday afternoon and rained late into the night producing 0.54 inches (1.4 cm) of rain. A happy Mermaid put on several blooms this morning.

Glenda on the deck, listening to the rain.

Can you see Marina’s “Incognito” Pear Tree?

New Tree

Sasha giving me the eye.

Cat tree that is. We got a new cat tree for the deck. Tristan and Craig put it together for the kitties this afternoon. Sasha was the first to try it, loved it, and made cuter and cuter poses on it.

It wasn’t long before we ended up with a Cat 5 on the new cat tree.

Silver and Gwendolyn

Mary and Paul are still on the big cottonwood. I think Paul is waiting for Mary to get where she can make the flight across the ditch.
