Moo Shu the Wonder Dog's second boarding of the Friday Ark.
Yes, that's her name. It seems to fit, odly enough, and she responds to it better than she did Charlie.
Her recovery from her spaying is progressing well. It will be a week on Monday. The sutures come out in another week.
Posted for the Friday Ark.
I took the little girl to the vet yesterday and got her checked out. She tested negative for all the things that could kill her.
The vet says she is 4 months old based on her dentition, despite being so tiny that everyone thought she was half that age.
We're still not sure whether we will keep her.
We were leaving the Drinking Liberally Lexington meeting at Charlie Brown's last night when we found this stray kitten on the patio of the bar.
It was already pretty cold out, and not going to get any warmer. The kitten appeared to be hungry. We couldn't leave it alone, so we brought her home with us.
She ate voraciously, and settled down in a cat carrier with a towel to sleep on. We kept her in the upstairs bathroom with a litter box, some food and some water. She did just fine over over night.
The other three cats are still trying to figure out what has changed in their world.
I don't know if we will be able to keep her or not, but at least she didn't die all alone out in the cold last night.
This is Dr. Ralph Stanley, one of the very few legends of Bluegrass music. Really, there are only four of them. Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs, and Ralph Stanley.
Alison and I were fortunate to see Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys perform this evening at a free concert.
I don't know how much longer Dr, Stanley will be performing. He is 84 years old, and has been performing for 64 years.
I just know I am glad that I got to see him while I still could. Damn. This was an amazing experience.
When I took this photo, he was singing O, Death, from the soundtrack of O Brother, Where Art Thou. A capella. His band had left the stage. I can't express how amazing this moment was.
Mr. Jones. For the Friday Ark.
I've never really gotten a photo of all three of our cats together before. This is as close as I have ever come.
Luci is the dark shadow on the left. Callie is curled up on the sofa, and Mr. Jones is coming down the mountain.
Posted for the Friday Ark, and other weekend cat blogging events.
I took this photo of an open bottle of Yuengling Lager and bottle opener while in Pittsburgh visiting Alison's family last weekend.
When I posted it last night, a friend on Facebook left a comment saying, "Album cover!"
Which made me wonder what band might use this photo as the cover of their album.
I've been trying out a new lens I bought the other day. It is a Nikkor 35 mm f/1.8G, which is the equivalent of a standard 50 mm lens we all used on our 35 mm film SLRs long ago.
And the lens sells for less than $200.
I think I am going to have a lot of fun with it.
Even the 21C Museum Hotel penguins were impressed by the University of Kentucky basketball team's win over Arkansas on Saturday. A win that should propel UK into first place in the nation on Monday.
Alison and I spent the weekend at 21C. It was her birthday gift to me. It was an experience I will never forget. It was wonderful to be pampered in luxury. The food at the hotel restaurant, Proof, was amazing.
I really want to do it again some day.
