Welcome to another edition of the Morning Mountain News, coming to you from a WalMart parking lot in Puyallup, WA! Sorry about the light poles in the picture–no Ansel Adams photo prize today! Got a lot of things to show today. Our roving reporter was sent out to the Washington State Fair in Puyallup. For many years I lived next to it, if you Washingtonians can believe that, and I attended more times than I can remember. A lot to show today, so let’s get going!
First, an update on the “cat killer”. He has been layin’ low and there have been no new cases recently. No wonder, the reward has been raised to $53,000 or €45,600 or ₤40,550. I suspect the bushes are filled with “bounty hunters”! Zeke is keeping a watchful eye in the catio:
Greg was doing his daily walk when this vehicle approached him from behind. It did have to stop to get a better portrait of Greg as you can see! Smile!
Summer feels like it is over here in the Pacific Northwest. Thankfully there have been many days of rain and we can breathe again. Hopefully it will help put out all the western fires. Leaves are turning–a few flowers still blooming. I changed to my Autumn colour scheme here at the Feline Cafe.
Had to do some work on my cat cemetery out back. The cat statues were showing some signs of deterioration, especially around the ears, so I had to paint them for weather protection. Here’s before and after:(Chat was a big brown cat I found dead at the side of the road years ago in an icy December. I left him there for a few days and then brought him home.)
I have a few shots from the Washington State Fair. As I said before, there is so much going on, one day is not enough to see it all.
Finally, one of the things the fair has been famously known for since 1911 are the scones for sale. Here I am displaying one at home with their fresh blueberry jam. Go on, take a bite!
