Morning Mountain News / TMI (2)

We haven’t had any kind of Mountain News in a while.  Today is just news and odds and ends–some good: some bad.  Took this photo the other morning as the sky was clear.

Marigold is still mobile and eating and drinking  and licking everybody but losing weight rapidly.

The Cat Killer is still out there.  13 victims so far.  A six person task force is on the case 24 / 7.  Killer profiled as unsuccessful male, seeking attention, living alone, and of unremarkable appearance–no one seems to notice him. Reward now $41,000 or €35,000 or ₤31,700.  He is staying in the Olympia area about an hours drive away, so we are down from Red Alert to Yellow Alert.

The horrible smoke in the atmosphere was blown away into another direction for a week into someone else’s face, but now and then it becomes hazardous again depending on the day, weather, and wind shifts.  Major wildfires continue to burn in the region.

A few days back Channel 13, Q13 Fox Seattle, lost their internet and had to make signs. Watching the weather was like back in the old days of Black and White almost. I liked it and snapped a photo.

Cougar Mania Re-edited

“Cougar Mania” celebrates our 9th Anniversary!  You see, 9 years ago Christine and I  both started blogging at the same time!  I saw Christine’s blog and bravely and fatefully asked if she would like to see my blog.  She did. We became blogging friends and correspondents, and more!

“Cougar Mania” was an early post I wrote where Christine wrote her first comment.   She was my only follower and hers was my only comment!  I backed up the old blog before deleting it, so it is only on my computer.  Reading this again, seems like only yesterday that I wrote the post.

Calendar Cat July 2018 / Breaking Personal News–LOVE!

Scooby is the Calendar Cat for July 2018.  The Calendar received late last year was made by and sent as a gift by my love  Christine and Spike
Thanks again Christine! She sends me them every year. The rhododendrons bloomed in the spring and are flowerless now; and, of course the photo is from 2017!

Breaking Personal News!

Christine asked me to write this post today. The breaking news story today is the story of Greg and Christine and how they found love.

In the 1980’s I was stationed for a number of years in the US Air Force in the UK in East Anglia. I spent a month on assignment in Scotland. Flash forward–About nine years ago I started a blog called “GW’s Cat Corner”. It was my first attempt at blogging. Christine, who lives in Scotland, also began a blog about her cat Spike. By accident (if you believe in accidents) we each became the first follower on each other’s blogs. Christine was more clever at the blogging technicalities than I so she helped me catch up. We became friends. We talked blogs and cats.

Angel on my Shoulder (Father’s Day Holiday Weekend)

The Father’s Day Holiday Weekend Selfie is Angel on my Shoulder.  Looks a whole lot like a tiny Opie!  I wonder what she is whispering into my ear? Happy Father’s Day maybe?
