Caucus Critters: Moondae Moppets: The Opposite of Olympics

Greetings, non-sports fans! I care not at all about competition and exerting oneself. That's not fun, especially in the heat of summer! So let's grab an icy cold drink and do the opposite of Olympics.

But first, The Recommendations:

•Our intent is to create a safe place to relax and play; please use common sense and have fun.
•Share any and all pootie/woozle/furry/feathery/leathery photos or issues that you would like.
•When it comes to problems, we may just have someone with experience who can help.
•If you would like a pic from the posts, please ask the poster. He/she may have a copyright to those pics. Many thanks.
•​We love critters, so any/all photos that encourage human violence against an animal will be frowned upon and considered out of bounds!

We'z a diverse group!

So what's the opposite of Olympics? Sleeping, of course!

You know that pooties sometimes curl upside down when they sleep:

Even sometime in the most inconvenient spots:

And you know that puppies do the same:

But did you know that wild pooties curl up too?

And wild woozles?

Sometimes with friends:

Betcha didn't know llamas sometimes curl up to sleep! Meet Vincent. He is... unusual.

More often, of course, wild critters won't be quite so trusting. They might rest with their friends:

The article with this photo said because of staying alert for predators, giraffes only sleep 2 hours per day! You'd think they'd take turns or something:

They said that horses and zebras can nap standing up. But they don't have to. Especially if they have someone to cuddle with!

The bigger they are, the harder they nap:

But that doesn't stop them from waking friends when it's time to play!

And you know how it is when the kids won't let you nap:

Come on, Kids, srsly!

But a nice warm sleeping buddy makes friends of us all. And that's what really matters!

Love all the photos. But....they have inspired me to take a nap.

OTOH, it's not as hazardous as being inspired by the Olympics to go out and try something beyond one's physical capacity!

Aanyhoo, here's my summertime fave:

Peach Daiquiri

Serves 2.

3-4 ripe Red Garnet peaches, skinned, pitted, and quartered
Juice of 1 ripe Moroccan lime, room temperature (be sure to roll it first)
1 Tbs (or to taste) of a local honey (preferably from a single apiary)
Pinch of sea salt (Mont st. Michel is nice)
2 cups crushed ice, halved
4 oz good rum (we prefer Havana Club Gold Premium)

Pour 2 oz of the rum into each of 2 large goblets.
Add the halved crushed ice to each glass
Blend peaches, lime juice, honey and salt.
Divide peach mixture between the goblets
Garnish with a sprig of mint and a lime wedge

enjoy!

There are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don't know we don't know.

For the strawberry daiquiris, I just throw frozen strawberries into the blender with some yogurt and turbinado sugar, with or without rum depending on whether or not one wants them virgin. Blend and adjust flavors and iciness. A squirt of lime wouldn't hurt it either.

I couldn't find a photo of a peach daiquiri garnished with mint and lime, but came close!

I really like that black pup. But they're both cute as buttons!

I'm sure you had no difficulty finding homes for these cuties! Other than parting with them, of course.

Well, it came in an hour and a half ago, but I just checked my email.

McClatchy poll of voters under age 30: Trump 9%, Jill 16%, Gary 23%, Hill 41%. Third parties are gaining, Trump is pathetic. Woot!
