I’m in St. Louis, and it’s cold as fuck: single digits at night. The city is a crust of snow and ice. It’s a big deal to go somewhere. You know the drill, it’s just winter, and the least said about it the better. I’m staying indoors, where it’s colourful and warm and there are beads and cats and lemon cookies.
See how Wyatt is controlling my Mac charger? He’s got it tucked under his left front paw, so that if I need it, I have to go through him to get it. He’s like a supply clerk.
I’m sorry to say that shortly after this photo was taken, Jasper attempted to bestow unwanted attentions on Wyatt. It’s just a pirate thing, I tell Wyatt, take it as a compliment.
I took a beautiful photo of the Tucson airport when I flew out of the balmy, mild 70 F weather.
I love this shot. It seems like the entire gate could be airborne.
I really love the Tucson airport. When you think of all of the action it’s seen… Howard Hughes, test flights, the old days where Southwest flight attendants were in white go-go boots. It flies international flights and fighter jets and mysterious travelers and tall, quiet men in hats and boots. Soon, exotic people from foreign lands loaded down with gems and stones and beads and artifacts from every corner and cave on Terra will be taking up the taxis and filling up the tents.
Liam drew a huge poster of Red Cloud for a school project. I was really struck by it- here’s a detail.
I also meant to show you this excellent “Open” and “Nope” sign. The letter “N” just slides back and forth, to be either the first or last letter of the word. This is so obvious and good that it amazes me that I haven’t seen it before. I apologize for not noting the name of the restaurant…it’s in downtown Webster Groves.
Today, my goal is to leave the house as little as possible. The cats are supportive. Anyway, we’re all still saturated with the pleasure of having seen a huge raccoon waddle down our driveway, across the street, and up our neighbor’s drive, and we have oatmeal and toast to look forward to for breakfast. Simple joys.
It was the biggest raccoon I’ve ever seen. I wanted to invite it in, and make it up a cat bed, and brush its striped tail.
