Bat Catching Device

We had a couple of bats fly through the rooms formerly known as the dining and living rooms this evening, aka my studio.  We were sitting in the family room, formerly known as the "library" watching the dog show on NBC and out of the corner of my eye I spied two bats flying gracefully past the family room door. 

If you use a fishing net to catch bats make sure to purchase one that has the ultra fine nettting so as to not harm the bats!

You Can't See Me!

Thomas nesting atop John's Carhart jacket, somehow he thinks because he's three feet from the ceiling we can't see him.

Smoked Turkey

John smoked the turkey on the grill today, it took about eight hours for a 17 pound bird. It's cooling on the stove, the juice will soon be poured off and the fat removed for tomorrows gravvy, the bird cut up, deboned, and ready for tomorrows dinner and for a large batch of turkey and noodles!

Thomas Again

Barely a year old.


Summer coat, no bib, no mane and no ear tufts, almost a medium haired cat at this point. August of 2010

Winter coat, mane and bib and all fluffed out.  February of 2011.  He did grow his ear tufts back in and longer, much longer ear hairs, but alas the little bugger won't sit still for photos.

These are his feet in August, they are way hairier in the winter!
