Victor, have you been talking to Peter's brother in Texas? We'll call him in
the middle of winter and he'll say It's getting cold out, I guess I'll have
to put long pants on.

Or 80 something... I like to make fun of Tom's sister (she lives in
North Dakota, or as I like to call it, the frozen tundra) when she calls
in January and tells us it's -30 or something like that. I say, yeah, it's
nice and warm here, I think I'll wear shorts today.

Buster wants to be the star of the show, and from outside you can see
him going from window to window, pulling aside blinds and curtains
when necessary. His constantly moving and busy silhouette against the
bright indoor lights makes him a most visible and striking spectacle.
Looking at my house at night is like watching some kind of play, and
you'd swear there are several characters, and not just one actor
playing them all.


In the meantime, Dot is doing her own graceful performance of "Dances
with Moths", hopping on her hind legs as the crickets chirp and
applaud.


I would love to be walking by and seeing that. I love seeing kitties in
windows.

Sounds lovely.

Which when I think of it is a silly way of answering. Except for the
crickets, no sound, even imagined, involved.

You created a picture of a lovely evening. Looks lovely would be
closer.


My two claim that there's drama in silence. And they can spin their
own worlds. I wonder if there can even be such a thing as an evening
if it weren't for all their hard work, much less a lovely evening.

Victor, really not enjoying the heat.


We're getting afternoon thunderstorms these days, which beats down the
heat at night. If it weren't for that, it wouldn't be one of these
dancey frolicky nights, but a flat, stretched out cats night.

Buster might be remembering all the mousies, bunnies, and gophers out
there. There are
six windows in our den, and if I open them, there;s a cat in five of
them. If I had
neighbors, they'd think I was a cat collector.
Boots used to be impossible to get indoors at night if it was a nice
night with a full moon.
There are two games I had to play to get her in; one was "chase me
around the car three
times, then I'll run under the garage door." The other one was "I'll
sit on the top of the
car, just out of your reach, then when I'm good and ready, I'll jump
down on the hood, and
you snatch me off the car and carry me in." That girl NEVER came in
the door on her own
accord.


Buster's a pretty naive boycat, and I don't know if he's ever seen any
of those creatures up close.

Boots though, is very funny. I think she has a much more vast store
of wisdom than Buster.

I can agree with you. Nashville, Tennessee has been having highs in the
mid-to-upper-90's for several weeks, with relatively high humidity, and
the larger of my two window air conditioners has died. I am temporarily
having to cool the house with a unit designed to cool only one room. It
is manageable (fortunately, it is in my bedroom window), but most of the
house is staying in the mid-to-upper 80's. The master bedroom is cool,
but about all it does for the rest of the house is to lower the humidity.

Great update, Tak!
Best wishes,
