Potpourri in a photo sense (Updated)

“Potpourri in a photo sense” is just a collection of a few unrelated sense-less photos.  I been losing the plot lately due to “things”!  It’s this or nothing, so here goes:

Note the “Painted” fall leaves on the ground. A scary Halloween decoration?  Not my house.

Afternoon Mt. Rainier.  Sorry, no Mountain News today! New post Saturday.

Morning Mountain News

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!

Mountain Monday on Nip

This Mountain Monday on Nip post shows Mt Rainier earlier this morning taken on my early morning bicycle ride  It is going to be a hot one all week nineties F and I don’t have air conditioning.  I can look at the glaciers while I sweat!  There is some telephoto here as it is 36 miles away as the eagle flies.  If it erupts you can probably kiss our furry little asses goodbye!  At least I will have a good view!  Scooby is getting his nip time early before it gets hot and he sleeps all day! Big day Tuesday!

Selfie Saturday / Bonus photo

It is time to get out of bed on Selfie Saturday.  At least that is what Scooby says.  I think it is time to roll over and go back to sleep for an hour–make that two hours!  Give him some food, go back to bed, that’s the only way to do it. Then I can have some peace!

Vintage cat food mat / MT Rainier in a hat / Guest cats / Opie / Colouring the Past (cats!)

This post is about an unusual vintage cat food mat, Mt. Rainier, some guest cats, Opie and her new toy from the tooth fairy, and an interesting blog called “Colouring the Past” featuring some cats.

Cat Mat

I used this mat almost 20 years ago, I reckon. I was looking for photos of cats eating at the time, but those were few and I did not see the mat. It surfaced the other day when I was cleaning out cabinets. I was surprised and remembered it instantly. What I notice about it of course is the cup of hot chocolate the cat has! Today we all know chocolate is bad, and would not conceive of drawing a cat with chocolate. At any rate, I am using it again, at least for a while. When Zeke first saw it on the floor, he creeped up to it and slowly extended his paw to touch it, in order to see if it moved, I guess. As usual, no camera handy.

Monday’s ennui

Normal on a Monday is a slow start.  Speaking of slow starts, tomorrow the girls both head to the vet for a bunch of injections in the afternoon.  One problem with cat birthdays is shots cannot be far behind!  Holiday excitement on the weekend–boring when it is over.  There is no middle ground.  The vet is also a drag, so ennui–the word for the day–continues on Tuesday.

Yesterday I took this snap.  The weather looks the same today.  It will look the same tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that. . . .  If ennui was weather, then this would be it.  We rarely get lost here.  Mt Rainier is to the southeast–a steadfast compass point.  I shall try to visit some blogs today.

Reflections 2

Reflections in a golden eye 2 are more old, but not too old, photographs that were never posted or posted and not seen! During the holiday season, most people are busy shopping, traveling, and all, I am not really going to be much here either.  I just automatically scheduled this post to fire off as a flare today. Perhaps someone will see it–perhaps not!  I wonder how many swats the cats have made in the last week and a half in the previous post–a million–a billion? PHOTOS follow: Continue reading →
