Ancient Shores

my baby brother plays guitar in Ancient Shores . The boys were opening for a benefit show at the venerable Morgantown establishment ‘123 Pleasant Street’ (also known as the Nyabinghi Dance Hall, the Underground Railroad, The Dryhouse to some of us older residents of Morgantown).

At least I wasn’t the oldest person there as long as Chad was there.

The Boys are playing 4 shows in April….GO SEE THEM!! Pretty Please?

Miscellanous Adventures in Geoaching

As I look back thru these shots, I swear I’ve done more things in March than geocache and drag other poor souls out geocaching.

Yet I have no photographic evidence. I dig deeper into the files and yet nothing. No pictures of me and the horse, no shots of me buried under mounds of sewing or cleaning up the yard. We have two digital cameras and take pictures at the drop of a hat, but nothing. Go figure.

The Feline Dictators

We live with three cats. They pretty much think they rule the house. At the very least they outnumber the humans 3 to 2. (If you add in the ferrets, the humans are outnumbered 5 to 2.)

Ghost is the matriarch at 12 years of age. She constantly reminds us that her life would be so much better if she had no siblings. She says this very loudly and at all possible opportunities. Most recently she gave us a scare when it looked as if she might have a tumor in her eye. A visit to the veterinary opthamalogist (and a few dollars later) we were much relieve to find out it is only a cyst.

Freyr is the middle child and only boy. We brought him into the house because Ghost was mourning the passing of our other (at the time only other) cat.  Ghost would sit and wail. She seemed sad. We brought home Freyr. She seemed angry. Oh well.  Freyr operates under the misconception that he is a tiger, not a 7 lb. red tabby. He has that tiger strut. He pesters his sisters. And he hates dogs. No, hate is not a strong enough word. He despises dogs. He has tried to attack my mom’s rotweiler, Major. The poor dog had no idea there was even a cat around. It’s been downhill since then.

Seti…oh Seti. She was born under a pine tree on Easter to a stray momacat. It took some serious effort (me climbing under Grandma’s creepy porch  being only part of it), but we rescued her and her 4 siblings. One was silver, the rest jet black. Seti is gorgeous but dumb as a post, no dumber than a post if that is possible. The other sibling that we keep track of is exactly the same. Our vet tells us that Seti may have good teeth. I can only hope so, because besides looks, that would be all she has going for her.

Highland Spring Fling Geo-Event

It’s that time of the year again…time to venture forth to Cabela’s (known to SSPG as the land of the dead heads) to swap caching lies, oogle GPSr’s, and generally engage in the geo-geekfest activities.

Knight Who Says Ni shows off the free stuff she won!
