the LAST of the ice pictures, i promise!
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!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!
