Oh, Jeeves...

...lay out my tweeds and my green club tie and uncover the roadster. It's 66 degrees on December 3rd and I'm going for a drive!

Cali

Hello to all the followers of +CATURDAY! (curated by +Cicely Robin Laing and +Shantha Marie Fountain) as well as everyone else!

Meet Cali the calico, our newest edition. We and our neighbor across the road both heard a cat crying a couple of days ago and both thought it might be the other's cat. Once we determined that was not the case we went looking and this little kitten came running up to us. A trip to the vet confirmed no feline leukemia, but fleas, respiratory infection, and mild conjunctivitis in one eye. No evidence of worms, but she was treated for that as well as everything else. She is about eight weeks old, alert, happy, and playful, and she has a new home. She will be in quarantine for several more days before she is allowed to associate with Ming.

"They Are Here With the Reeves"

(Any James Thurber fan will recognize that line from What Do You Mean It Was Brillig?, which was published in The New Yorker on January 7, 1939. The story can also be found in My World and Welcome to It and other anthologies.)

On Monday we put up the Christmas decorations at the local historical society museum.

"Black Friday"

Ah, Black Friday -- the perfect day to have the outdoors all to yourself. Temperature in the low 60s and a mostly clear blue sky. A nice day for a top-down drive up to Dixon Springs State Park for a nature hike.

Fall Lilac

The strange fall plant behavior continues. Now our lilac is blooming. (Just a few blossoms on the south side of the plant.)

Sunday in Superman's Home Town

Just a typical Sunday in Superman's home town with folks from all over gathering to have their picture taken with the Man of Steel. License plates spotted today on the courthouse square included Tennessee, Missouri, South Dakota, and Georgia. (And Superman is wearing his Santa hat.)

Clarks River NWR

We took a fall color drive yesterday to the Clark's River National Wildlife Refuge near Benton, KY. The headquarters building was closed for Veterans Day (Observed), but we had a nice look around, then stopped at the nearby McDonald's for a coffee break. I took a few pictures at the refuge HQ including this one that Google applied a high contrast black and white effect to.
