Friday Night Photos Catatonic Edition

Happy Friday everyone. As always post any photos you like.
Some cool kitty's I've had the privilege of knowing.

Koa. Koa is a Russian Blue but has assured me that he did not run a troll farm or in any way help elect the former occupant of the White House.

Luna. Luna is a Turkish Angora. There are rumors floating around that she is involved in the production of Turkish hash

Jaybird. Jaybird is a freeloading happy-go-lucky bum.

Koa is gorgeous and so is my association of the name. One of my very favourite trees are Koa from Hawaii. The wood has beautiful colours and grain, and even an iridescent quality.

Luna is a cat of primary colours, and I hope Jaybird was kind enough to leave the jay birds alone, once he was released.

We had a reprieve of a few hours rain in our increasingly hot and dry summers.

Enjoy the evening and be well everyone.

ps. what is the video, it’s unavailable here, but I can find a version of it if I know the title.

The Russian Foreign Office yesterday tweeted the clip of the PM jerkily dancing in Africa last week sliced with a video of their press chief Maria Zakharova and her rhythmic moves.

It joked: 'Choose your dance style in the international relationship.'

Here's full video of Maria Zakharova dancing:

great pics and for stray cat strut. Today the sun was up and so were the Daffs, so I grabbed a few pics of them just because I haven't used my "new" camera much at all and not in quite some time: However, it is taking forever to load them into flickr preparatory to putting them here ...

Thank you for reminding me of its beauty. I should really plant some bulbs. My neighbour planted King Alfred bulbs which are a beautiful, large variety, and one that is reminiscent of her childhood.

As soon as a splash of yellow appears I know spring is on its way. The bright, nodding blooms signal the end of winter’s dark days, reminding us of the joys a new season will bring. It’s not surprising the Cancer Society of New Zealand use the daffodil as their symbol – it represents hope.

@QMS To get to the Kearsarge Pass trailhead, head south from my high school alma mater in Big Pine to the next town Independence, where live according to Big Piners, 'a bunch of goat-ropers'. Turn right on Market St. which becomes Onion Valley Rd, and proceed to trailhead a bit over 10 miles. Mighty familiar country for me, the east side of Sierras in Owens Valley area. The high country on the east side is spectacular. The west side of the Sierras get all the rain, east side is pretty dry. West side in cross-section is a 30 degree angle maybe, valley floor to peaks, east side is 60 degrees or more, twice as steep. Neat pic QMS!

So I couldn't quickly, at least, find any good pics of my cats. But this is my pup, dog, baby, whatever. Her name is Jaska and, yes, she's my icon pic. This was *gulp* 11 years ago. She is under a year old, and trashed from playing very hard for hours on end.

jaska_trashed_aug_10.jpg

Hmm, I found another, of Jaska and one of our (now deceased) cats, Donatello. Can you find him?

And, no, Jaska wasn't after him. They were playing! Donatello won, I think Smile

here is one I found from China ..

28900027789.jpg

It is a unique type of petrographic geomorphology found in China. Danxia landform is formed from red-colored sandstones and conglomerates of largely Cretaceous age.

The landforms look very much like karst topography that forms in areas underlain by limestones, but since the rocks that form Danxia are sandstones and conglomerates, they have been called “pseudo-karst” landforms. Danxia landforms cover several provinces in southeast China.

@janis b

I do feel good at how sweet of a dawg she is and how good she is. I remember being so afraid of getting her so early after Charlie died because I didn’t know if I would do a good job raising her and if I was ready or if I would bond to her. But I think that she knew that I was broken inside and decided that she would help heal me. I really think that she felt my sadness and took it as her job to bring joy back in my life. I marvel every day that we both did a good job making her what she is today. I know it sounds sappy to think this but it’s true. She is responsible for a lot of our bond. And now I know that I was also very sick when I got her and I didn’t find out until June that I was and that added to my anxiety about getting her so soon. I marvel at how funny she is when she gets my socks every morning. It’s still a fun game we play and it starts my mornings out with a laugh.

I’ve loved every one of my dawgs, but this connection I feel with Sam is extra special. And that she still loves to snuggle is beyond priceless. I hope everyone who has a pet in their lives understands how incredible the bond is with their pet.

Thanks, Janis.
