Winter Sky

The sky in the morning has been most interesting lately.  These were taken between Woodworth and Baton Rouge on Jan 24, 2010, all but one through the windshield, which is tinted a bit.

Damsel in Distress

Rocky the rocket cat is very talented at climbing up trees.  Climbing down is another story.  The more scared she got yesterday, the higher she climbed.  We were finally able to coax her down enough to reach her with the extension ladder, but she was probably up high in the Live Oak for 5 hours, fussing loudly the whole time.  All that climbing and meowing made for a hungry kitten.  She's ready to go out and have another backyard adventure today.
