Making Faces

Dexter, my guest cat, continues to amuse himself and me. It's touching that he fell in love with my dad's old beach blanket so I'm leaving it out for him.
His latest bit of mischief is trying to grab my hand as I reach for the railing going upstairs. He races past me and paws from the ledge. It's amazing how far that cat can stretch. He thinks it's HI larious and I keep thinking, Richard Widmark in Kiss of Death.

A challenging set, if anyone has tips on shooting outdoor fire juggling in partly sunny weather please let me know.

I'm Thinking Lon Chaney's Phantom of the Opera

Bob aka Roberto Clementi aka Bobby De Niro aka Bob No! aka Bob Stop It Just Stop It had a lovely photo shoot last week to celebrate the Game of Thrones premiere.
He was a good sport except for a few moments with the dog wrangler, aka his mom. Bob loves to have his picture taken and always poses nicely for me. This pose reminds me of Lon Chaney in The Phantom of the Opera and makes for a chilling black and white portrait.

"If I am the Phantom, it is because man's hatred has made me so."

Dexter Get Off The Counter or Equal Time For The Cat

My guest cat Dexter has been here several months over the last year and that boy is embedded. He took to his temporary home right away, but the longer he's here the more he discovers places he's not supposed to be. The breakfast bar and kitchen counter are absolutely off limits.
The funniest thing is that he tells me each time he crosses another forbidden place off his "To Do" list.

Dexter, get off the counter

Dexter, can you hear me?

Dexter! Do yo want me to come over there?

&*#@ cat

Because Game Of Bones Is Too Obvious And Sounds Like a Porno

The Game of Thrones premiere may have been nuthing compared to last season's finale, but the show continues to inspire. Or at least serve as an excuse to dress up dogs in costumes from the Dollar Store.

Little Rat as Lady Sansa. "And I vow that you shall always have a place by my hearth and meat and mead at my table. And a bone from my pile if my pile be so large that I know not one bone is missing."

Mr. French as the former Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. "I did what I thought was right, and I got murdered for it. And there's also the no sex thing."

Oliver Twist as Leaf. "Before the First Men came, all this land that you call Westeros was home to us, yet even in those days we were few. And yes, maybe we created some Ice Zombie along the way." 

Bob Barker as Alys Karstark. "Now and Always. Really, three lines and I share them with a 10-year-old?"
