Some Pictures

Man alive, it’s freezing in my office this morning!  I’m going out right after work for a drink with a distant acquaintance so I dressed up a bit….and forgot that I would freeze to death without my standard office outfit of jeans, long sleeved top, down vest and huge wrap around wool cowl.  Dammit!  I’ll be right into the tea, I guess!

I thought I’d post a couple pictures that I’ve taken in the last week, giving out a daily dose of cute!

 

Here he is again, perched on the top of my sofa.  And ya, he's HUGE.

Forgive the button-belly in this picture, Ray was somewhat inebriated.  The dog is our Grand-dog and is nearly 100 pounds....although he thinks he's a wee puppy....or a cat.  Spent a lot of the night laid out on the top of the sofa behind Ray.

This one makes me want to drive home immediately and go snuggle up beside her and go to sleep!

And, finally, in sad news, Cleo the bird died yesterday.  She was my bird for a few years, my sister’s bird for a few years before that, sister’s boss’s bird for a couple years and she belonged to someone else before that.  She had a pretty tumultuous beginning and middle of life but these last 6 years she’s been living at a friend’s workplace, a small airline (fitting, a bird living at an airline!).  She was never happier than she was living there, she had free reign to come and go all day long, flying about and visiting people in the office.  She had her girl there that she would go and see when it was nap time and snuggle up to her hand or into her hair.  She was a good bird and now she is free to fly around anywhere she wants to go!  We think she was probably nearly 20 years old!
