Lucy stretches out by the fire
February 25, 2015
 
 The other night I tried laying down by the fire
and sleeping like Lucy....I did fall asleep as
the heat made me completely comatose!
BUT I could not stretch myself out like she can.
I swear she grows longer ..... she's such a Yoga cat!

Be sure to thank Steve of BFDude for Feline Friday!
And for heavens sake have a splendid day!

Saturday Six Words and Sunday Shadow Shots February 21-22, 2015

The Friday Meanderers take a hike.... 
 
 
We drove a little past Callahan-
got to Masterson Road where we
parked our cars and walked 4 or so miles ...
 
 
The first mile and a half was uphill....
is this really meandering we asked?
 
 
Eventually the road became easier as we
crossed the East Fork of the Scott River... 

 
 
Here's a wheelbarrow waiting for spring...
 

 
A well aged fence post
 

 
They call this mesa "Lovers Leap"


Eventually we got back to our cars and
headed to the Etna Brewery for
a splendid and well earned lunch!
It was a very fun day!
~~~~
Hike over Here for Six Words and
Here  more Shadow Shots!

It Was Feline Friday! February 20, 2015

We went on an early morning hike
which is why I am late once again
posting for Feline Friday.
Thanks to Steve of BFDude for Feline Friday!
He started it to convince us that he truly loves all cats!
