the LAST of the ice pictures, i promise!

mmm sez:
first, though, a picture of nelson and the poodle-cut on his leg fur. he seems back to normal, for which we are ALL thankful! the angle of the light makes his undercarriage and paws seem yellow, but they're not. (note the food debris. what pigs cats are when they eat; amazing, for what are supposed to be such fastidious creatures;-) not to mention how they polish each other's bowls for whatever crumbs of food might be left behind. you think they'd do that to the surrounding area, too, but evidently "out of bowl, out of mind." well, most of 'em are a little of that last, anyway.)

the "crystal cave" of branches that fell on our west fence; they were behind me, too, like a real cave!


devastating beauty (biggify to see the destruction parts piled at the side of the road)

crystal chandeliers

not perzactly ice cream, eh, cocoa?

now this you don't see often: two rows of ice have melted and pulled away from the fence they formed on, but kept their shape, sagging from their own weight!

Wow, those are some amazing pictures!

Nelson, I'm glad you're doing OK. I have the exact same thing going on on my leg, too! I think it's a conspiracy or something.

Those pictures are BEAUTIFUL!

Yeah, I make a huge mess when I'm eating crunchies because I have a tiny tiny mouth. The Lap Lady says she sweeps up enough extra food bits in a week for an extra day of feeding us.

I hope your humans are being careful of all that ice out there and not getting hit in the head when it falls. My OTW says that hurts a lot!

Jake and Bathsheba said...

Glad you're looking and feeling chipper, Nels.

I make a bit of a mess with my stinky goodness, but I do clean up on Bathsheba's meals. I eat all the crunchies that she drops around her bowl so it's always nice and neat. My little mess is outside.
