I woke up to rain I had listened to several times during the night. I saw a hummingbird blob on the feeder pole (20/200 uncorrected vision!). I took a shower and looked out my window again. Still there. In the kitchen to make breakfast; still there. I went back for the camera, knowing my luck would surely run out. I opened the kitchen slider, opened the screen. As I took several pictures I saw three hummingbirds vying for the feeder and this guy is king of the heap.
Toby went to the vet yesterday for his first annual visit. He is not a vocal cat. Purrl meows adamantly to be let out; Ryon meows loudly when night falls and is positively obnoxious during the full moon, but Toby is the man of silence. He said nothing about the carrier; a few short remarks on the car ride to the vet and not one meow thereafter.
This young man sat next to me for the Junior Ranger induction ceremony a couple of weeks ago. There was a spider on his Croc!
