My two pets of the period.



Probably an Exakta Varex 11a with 2.8/50 Tessar or, perhaps, Vito B with Color Skopar; negatives all long gone, scan of an ancient print via E-mail from the 'baby' as was...

Beautiful, Rob.

Thanks, Eric.

That was the only period that Ann had short hair.

When I met her in school she had a "Veronica Lake" style, and I think the short cut was a sort of reaction, a spiritual clearing of the decks for the wedding and then the period during which our daughter came along. After that, the decks stayed clean as ever, but the tresses were allowed to grow, thank goodness!

Seventeen years later, both ladies had the same long hair, and you couldn't tell who was driving the car - until it came up the drive and so did the soundtrack. Ann didn't like music when she drove.

Them wuz the days...

We did have a dog at the time, a small fox-like creature that lasted fourteen years and climbed the laurel bushes after sticks I'd throw. Not a fib, a fact. My daughter has some snaps...

Funny thing: though the little pooch lasted all that time, the memories are all of the next one, the big Alsabrador we brought out to Spain with us. The small dog was independent as a cat; the big one was like a child and wouldn't dream of letting us out of sight.

Luna waiting for the moon to come up with me the other night.
I usually leave her off leash while shooting in reasonably remote places and she does well just sniffing around while I shoot and coming back to pose for treats as she feels like it. One thing we are working on is not chasing wildlife. So when she started to chase a deer while I was shooting and I called her, it was really nice to have her actually leave the deer and return to me pretty promptly. Progress!

My name was Daisy, until I scratched a BMW and became known as Pizza!

If somebody told me that they'd picked Hamish & Nigel as names for their cats I'd have thought they'd lost their marbles, but these two actually look like a Hamish & a Nigel.

A dangerous age to be. Especially for a cat. Can ruin their sex life beyond repair.

Indeed it was, Rob.  For both of them.  "The Boys" are now "The Its". 
Everybody's happier for it, too.  They'll never know what they missed.

Hamish, the larger of the two, is the gentle giant.  He outweighs Nigel by a factor of two.  That doesn't stop Nigel from raising hell every chance he gets. :)

When I was growing up, my next-door neighbour had a cat named "Rooster". After that just about any pet name seems reasonable to me...
It was amusing when they called the cat in for its dinner.

Pet names are important, just like vehicle names.
Female orange tabbys are rare. If I ever get a sister for Nigel and Hamish, I'm gonna name her "Dwindle".  :)
