Some of the recent goings on around here:

Polly, our intrepid two-footed cat, is determined to pile through the snow in this picture:

Keeper mines for snowballs stuck in her feet:

The plum earlier in the Fall :

Keeper under the plum at sunset

Polly gets all the headlines but there are three other cats in our domicile, all indoor cats, including, left to right, Maude, Skyler and Daisy. Maude is currently in jail with an unmentionable problem but she does have visiting hours with her probation hearing coming up in a few weeks.

A nice Polly portrait:

Buddy, the neighbour black lab, gets loose again and tries to get fresh with Abby through the fence.

Fall remnants, just hanging on . . .

So artistic, you should work for National Geographic.

I am still such a novice photo taker, I like to THINK I do some good work, but my photos pale in comparison to yours.
A true photographer captures a story within a moment....and you truly do that Rick.

Thanks for your comments . . .

A few more if you're interested:

The barnyard at my mother's place near Big Valley, Alberta . . . . she sits out there at five in the morning winter or summer, watching the world revolve . . . . an old bucket and ladle and a suspiciously fresh looking cow skull keeping her company.

Keeper is quite the poser, unlike Abby who is a mile-a-minute dog . . .

Introspective Keeper below, looking like those old Life Magazine covers from the 1930's and 40's.

Bemused Keeper . . .

Mysterious Keeper . . .

Listening down a mousehole with Abby at sunset . . . .

The cat gnome has been with us for about 15 years, guarding our houses in Calgary and the country all that time . . . . but Keeper chewed the ear off when she came into our care seven years ago.
