Gary Does Yoga

I’m not 100 % sure about this, so don’t quote me, but I think cats invented yoga.  Think about it.  What other animal (human or otherwise) has stretching and poses down to a science the way cats do?

I guess that’s why I take issue with the fact that one of the most popular yoga poses is the Down Face Dog.  Really???  How about the Up Face Cat?  Now that’s a pose I can get into!


Windows on the World

18 03 2012

I apologize for not posting in awhile but I’ve been distracted by other important things like sleeping.  And eating.  And looking out the windows.  Not the window in the above photo — that’s one of my OLD windows in Virginia Beach.

I love to look out windows.  You never know what you’ll see.  The other morning I watched the ducks having their morning swim in the pond as the first rabbits of spring scampered across the grass.  And I thought to myself, “Life is good.”

Then I remembered how sad I was five years ago when we left Virginia Beach because I missed my window near the mimosa tree where bees would buzz back and forth all day.  What I didn’t realize at the time was that there were even better and more fun things to watch outside my new windows, like them:

and him (his name is Noser):

oh, and these guys too:


I think there may be a lesson here somewhere.

Still, it would be quite nice to have a mimosa tree.

Today’s Tail Tip:

Always give cats more than they ask for: be it an extra belly rub, scratch behind the ear, or a treat.

It’s a gesture of goodwill that will go far in cementing a lasting relationship.
