Awwww, I love the little Russiann Blue kitty. We had a Russian Blue boy called Smokey, but unfortunately he was run over 4 yrs ago.


Way to go on the shopping. I hope you still managed to get another full days worth in.

Thank you for all your kind words. I am definitely looking forward to seeing you again in September! Hopefully Fran will be feeling better by then.

Our cat sitters only recently saw both of them at one time to actually know that there are two all white cats!

Basil, although we like to call him Bagle as it seems more fitting.

But this is Sonny, a very special cat.



You actually got a picture of her without revealing all her dirty paws and stuff. She has Cerebelar Hypoplasia which means that the receptors from her brain that control her motor skills don't fire properly. She falls down alot and especially when she is eating falls into her food. That's why she gets so dirty. Now she is getting old and lazy about cleaning herself. She's still my baby. I can't say she's not a happy girl because tonight when we had chicken for dinner and we tossed a 1/4 of cut up chicken down for the livestock, she was right there to clean up most of the leftovers.

This one was definitely saying goodbye to me!



That's Molly, one of the cats we got from Arline, she is a sweetie!

Quote:


I grabbed a couple of slices of toast for breakfast and a cup of coffee before Alison drove me out to LAX.

Saying goodbye is such a depressing thing to do in real life!

I'm so glad you were able to get yourself something in the morning. Real life came on so fast and there were so many people between the contractor's rep, and Darcy and Jim that I didn't get to see if you were able to take care of some breakfast. I try to be a better host, but sometimes other things just come up and I am tugged in a million different directions.

Glad you and DH got all settled in and made your metnal purchase lists!

Very nice pictures of the cats.

The home away from home looks very nice. It was a great room to stay while you were up in NorCal.

The food looks good.

Angela - I don't feel bad about out-shopping DH.

I felt bad because DH mentally out-shopped ME at the Mall!!

Thanks! PIO captured a nice shot of her! The smile is probably food residue from when she falls face first into her feeding dish! But seriously she is a sweetie.

We have had Benny our Burmese for nearly 14 years, we didn't replace Smokey.

PIO what a fabulous TR full of wonderful photos. Is it a bit too late to say I'm fashionably late? Maybe it's a case of better late than never

It's NEVER too late; especially as we haven't formally hit the end of the Mayan calendar yet. Thanks for jumping in.

What a lovely way to end your day at Disneyland and how gorgeous are those Russian blues!

It was lovely reading about your reunion with DH. I'm such a sap...

This enquiring mind would like to know though, what you dropped $$$ for in the camera shop...

I got the 70 - 200 mm f/4 IS Canon lens.

I couldn't hold the weight of the camera and the f/2.8 version with one hand; so there was no point in getting it.

Day 5: Around the Bay in a Day

Resort Ch-ch-ch-changes




Our home away from home looked like it hadn’t changed when we checked in yesterday. The room was still well-kept and clean; bathroom functioned well; breakfast and happy hour still in play…..


But it is amazing what a good night’s sleep does to one’s perception!

In the cold light of morning, there were two inescapable changes.
  1. The spa…..my hot tub…..had been bricked up and completely closed over.
  2. There was no bacon for breakfast.



I can probably deal with change #1; but no bacon? That was one change too many!



I sure hope that there is that fat crispy protein on offer tomorrow morning.

(Continued from Previous Post)

Around the Bay….to Half Moon Bay (In Search Of…..Photoscavenger hunt items)




I have been known to go to unreasonable lengths in search of a shot for the DisBoard photoscavenger hunts run by pea-n-me. In fact, I would even go as far as saying that I can be downright scary stalker!

As the Northern Hemisphere is in autumn (or it was at the time of the trip), it goes without saying that the items on the current hunt involved Halloween themes and fall.

I haven’t ever gone as far as buying an airline ticket just to get a shot; but I cannot claim that the scavenger hunt does not factor at all in my sightseeing decisions. Quite the contrary, in fact.


There were a number of items on the scavenger hunt list that I’d researched before boarding the plane and I figured that my best bet of scoring some of them was at a place in Half Moon Bay.




Lemos Farm has been in operation since 1942. In its 3rd generation now, this old family farm is probably best described as a farm playground for kids.

There is a petting zoo, pony rides and the item I had been stalking.






It might have been the first weekend in November; but I was still hopeful of catching some of the seasonal Halloween accoutrements. I had not hoped in vain!


Pumpkins!






Of different sizes.






Would you say this was a Pumpkin Head?






Yes, perhaps that was a little corn-ball; even for me.







Hmmmm….How about a corn-cutting spook instead?






Am I just plain spooky, you ask?







As long as you don’t think me a witch…….







….but if you do, at least I come with candy corn.









Black cats were on the scav hunt list and whilst Velcro fitted the bill nicely, I couldn’t resist the flat cat options!













For those of you that might be thinking that I was shooting cowboy style….








Just remember……Halloween is not something that we celebrate in Australia. And it is springtime; not fall……so some of those iconic images that you grew up with are a novelty to me.







The farm in fall colours was a sight to behold and I just loved all the Fall and Halloween items.






Sadly, I missed the Haunted House here….and in Disneyland. At least I could take consolation from the fact that this one was closed for the season.







There was a wonderful figure balloon maker at the farm. These were all for sale.






I seem to be falling all over Ariel this trip!







My prince of a DH decided to surprise me. This balloon rose lasted all week and gave me so much pleasure!








Oh….I think we know each other well enough now for you to know that simple things amuse my simple mind. This was something that amused me greatly!







(Yes, I know….toilet humour!).





And for the Boo Boos and Moo Moos lurking…..








Yes….we were definitely two adults without responsible children supervision this morning.
