A little birdie at the feeder:
The daffys are coming out! The daffys are coming out! What a difference just a day or so makes!
And, some rosemary (I still need to trim this bush):
Happy President's Day!
No, we didn't get a cat. This pretty little guy (or girl) just suddenly appeared this morning, and spent a few moments exploring our backyard.
A collection of what are (in my humble opinion) forty of the best photographs I took in 2007. Enjoy!
Washoe has died. She was 42; just a few months older than me. Having attended and graduated from Central Washington University, I, of course, new all about Washoe, the hand-signing chimp - she was totally famous on campus. Through her and the work of Dr. Roger Fouts, we were able to learn so much about chimpanzees, as well as learning a lot about ourselves.
Rest in peace, Washoe. And thank you.
I saw the coolest site as I was driving home from the gym tonight: a herd of deer! At least five or six deer were crossing the road ahead of me. Naturally I stopped for them. Naturally part deux, I tried for a picture:
One of the tigers I saw at the Charles Paddock Zoo Saturday has died. It's so very sad; they're so beautiful. Below are the two pictures I took of the tigers just two days ago. I don't know which is the one that died, though.
Yesterday mom and I went to the 12th Annual Atascadero Wine Festival. It was great fun! We hadn't been for a few years because I usually went to the CAPA Conference. Well, the Con was in San Diego this year, and I didn't have any time (or money) to travel down there to attend, so I went to the Wine Fest instead! It was, I can pretty much guarantee, much more fun! Read all about it here! Cheers!
