"What? I'm relaxin' here!"

This is the cats' new favorite hangout, under the purple fountain grass by the front porch.

Sammi saw Minnie in "her" spot and was livid.

And just to prove that I have been out & about with my camera (even though I've been a slovenly wretch at blogging), here are a couple of my buds at Prairie Dog Town last weekend, just hangin' out by the burrow. I took this with a newly-arrived 55-300mm telephoto lens. I had gone shooting at PDT before with the telephoto converter which came with my camera stuff, but the results were really bad, so I popped for the real thing. This is why I bought the camera in the first place. :) I'd also like a real wide-angle lens for landscapes, rather than a let's-pretend-it's-a-wide-angle converter, but that'll have to wait. Critters and purty flowers come first.

And on a related note, it is now T-minus 27 days until Walkabout!

Go for the Mamm - it's really not that bad - a few minutes of discomfort and a whole year of relief! :-)
