The Cats Take Over

I have had a very harrowing day coping with my electronic and technological gadgets all of which defied me at every turn and left me a broken shell  of a person flung into the corner of the room like a pile of dirty laundry.  Consequently, you don't get very many words out of me tonite, but I will try to fill up the column with a few pix.

One of the things which confounded me was the simple (?) task of trying to download some pics from my camera.  Two hours and a bucket of tears later I finally found the pro blem.....I was using the download cable from my old camera not  my new one.   If the prongs all fit the various holes I cannot for the life of me understand why the old one should not work, but at least the correct one did work and enabled me to display this somewhat undistinguished Picture of the new and improved, softer  version of Baskin in his favorite perch giving you the "look deeply into my eyes and I will turn you into a pumpkin" stare........otherwise known as the "Don't Fuck With Me, Kiddo".

This is supposed to  be a pic of Winnie co vering her eyes with her paw as she tries to nap.......ny vision is poor so all I can  be sure of is that it is a furry creature.

Same pose, perhaps a bit clearer but I know it will never win any prizes.
A view of my marvelous red trumpet vine blossoms.......too bad you can't see how huge they are but you can catch a glimpse of one of my numerous hummer feeders.  The funny thing is that the trumpet vine flowers used to be a feast for the hummers till they tasted Lo's Home Brewed Nectar.  Now they spurn the flowers for my offerings.  I hope I have not ruined their lives....

And finally, a pitifully inadequate shot of the livestock lounging by the pool........I took 2 or 3 of these and none of them was any good, but being that I am merely a limp pile of dirty laundry thrown into a corner by my tech devices,  I guess you should consider yourselves lucky to   be getting even this dubious stuff.

And now, my precious followers, I must rush off to  bed so I can arise with the dawn and see what is happening to the spreads, straddles and naked puts and calls in the Options Market.



  1. You did good, Lo! The pictures are great,,The ones of your feline beauties, are just that! Beautiful...even grumpy Baskin. Your flowers are so pretty,,I love it when you post pics with your blog..Waiting for you next post!

  2. Your Baskin cat is a twin to our Kuchma cat. Evil stare and all.

  3. The pictures are great! Honestly, I prefer words over photos, especially photo after photo of flowers but the cats I do enjoy.

  4. Hi Lo
    I think Baskin's look is definately your second version. I would'nt like to mess with him. lol

  5. If it makes you feel any better Lo, I spent an hour or so trying to "fix" my printer. Discovered I had plugged it into the wrong computer! :-/ Joining you in the dirty laundry pile! :-D

    Love your cats!

  6. G'day Lo. The pictures are just great. Love the cats. The trumpet vine flower looks wonderful. Take care. Liz..

  7. What is in Lo's home-brewed nectar?

    Made me think of the two old girls in "The Waltons" who gave away medicinal sips of what they demurely called "the recipe" -- from their late daddy's moonshine still in the basement.

  8. I think our Clara must be Winnie's sister. Dead ringer!

  9. To err is human, but to really foul things up requires technology.

    Hope things are going better now.

  10. Loving your Love Cats, Lo. And missing my old Bruiser, Maxi, who used to keep me such good company before he decided that other ladies (of the feline variety) were far more interesting. Serves me right for not getting him 'done' I guess.

    Meanwhile, I wanted to thank you for your supportive comment on my blog post today. Who knows? Maybe things WILL all work out in the end. Unfortunately, this week's Gallery theme ("Home") just set me off - and not in a good way.

    Anyway, until the hammer falls, we will not be defeated, we shall do everything in our power to fight off the darkness and we may even have a laugh or two.

    I promise to focus on less misery and moaning in coming posts. After all, just having an awesome cyber-soul sistah like you rooting for me (even though we've never met, and never will) makes a huge difference!

  11. Lounging by the pool. Sounds good to me. Cats are my role model for retirement. Our naps a lot wherever the sun shines in one something comfy. :)

  12. Great piccies, well worth the effort entailed to put them up on the blog. I have been having a string of problems with technology so I can very much relate to this post. Nice post. x
