Shadows from the trail and elsewhere

Photo of Lea and BK from our days in Saint Louis.

Found a new shortcut that offers some shade for torrid summer day cycle commuting.
The asphalt is in disrepair in some parts of this Multi User Path (MUP), but I will take it.

Lastly a view of the shaded MUP off Edmonds Road. Not a soul on it most days, but then they all might have gotten smarter about the heat :)

During our recent R&R in Johnson City, Texas, the cabin where stayed had a loft and a spiral staircase to get to the same. The first two days of our stay there, only the 2-legged family members ventured up to the loft.

On day three however, we saw BK go up the stairs and pose valiantly.

Rambo did go up the stairs the following day or perhaps even later during the same day, but was too scared to come down the same stairs and so he sat on the bed in the loft and wailed. Until one of us went up and brought him down.

Coco (our new Chow daughter) liked to lay on the bed next to the portable AC unit in the bedroom and just chill. Why not? That's what R&R is supposed to be you know? :)

Another page in the book of life

It has been two weeks since we lost Chaka because of some craziness that took place at the City Vet in Flower Mound. This too is part of life. Not easy, but a part of life. Part of the pain that one suffers due to attachment.

Fully realizing that attachment causes pain, we took our chances and adopted our new family member, Coco from North Texas Chow Haven, a Chow rescue agency. Coco is 3-5 years old and she is undergoing treatment for Heartworms. We will do everything in our power to give this child a good life.

Coco is a joy to be around and loves to sleep, part of which may be due to her medications. The cats are a bit confused (aren't we all), but have accepted their new sister. Coco is exploring, learning and adjusting to her new fur-ever home. We are adjusting to loving her.

That's all the news for now from our neck of the woods.

Chaka - 

My dears-

I have some sad news. 

Chaka passed away at the grooming salon. We are both heartbroken. 

Just lost. 

I hope to be back later. 


Finches and the Cat Trainer

Recently some of the Finches that visit our bird feeder in the front yard have been coming around to the side yard to have some quality time at t he feeder there. May be some of them prefer the solitude. Who knows? The bird photos are very tricky to take when they visit because of the location and the blinds, which if we raise the birds fly, y'all please pardon me for the poorer quality :)

Pictured below are me and my Cat Trainer. Oh no, I am not the Cat Trainer, but my Trainer is a Cat, namely, Rambo. Making sure that I get plenty of exercise and also cheering me along the way.

Enjoy the Memorial Day Weekend, if you observe the holiday.

Winter coat

Recent visit with friends in the neighborhood.

Seems some are getting rid of their winter coat.

I will leave you with some melodious music by Carlos Nakai.

Father Goose

Father Goose and Goslings seen at a lake near work. You can see the goslings if you zoom in.

The video below is about another Father Goose. I have spent many a evening, in the good company of Leslie Caron & Cary Grant :)

Not sure if this is a Turkey Vulture or a Black Vulture, but I saw him/her on my commute into work yesterday. I had to edit this iPhone photo to make things pop.

Quite the bird, don't you think?

Easier to pull over, when you are riding a bicycle :)
