Horsing around...

These flowers were too bright to be ignored as I walked swiftly past them this morning, so I stopped, snapped an iphone photo and resumed my walk back home.

Next, on our street I heard the loud chirps of parrots above, and took another iphone shot, which really does not show anything. The little spots are actually green parrots and we have many many parrots in our trees!

Back home the cat boys who had not realized that I left for my walk are horsing around. They do forget time and I find that extremely endearing, it is as if time spent was actually not!

While I cleaned house-because I fully intended to watch the two championship football games in a clean fur-free room, August enjoyed the clean morning air

and Olser boy stared!

And finally, I told the cat boys about Martin Luther King holiday and we read the following passage, which really pleased them:

"...The oneness of humanity is a spiritual truth abundantly confirmed by science. Recognition of this truth compels the abandonment of all prejudices of race, color, creed, nation, and class "everything which enables people to consider themselves superior to others." The principle of the oneness of humankind "is no mere outburst of ignorant emotionalism or an expression of vague and pious hope.... It does not constitute merely the enunciation of an ideal.... It implies an organic change in the structure of present-day society, a change such as the world has not yet experienced."...

Wishing all a beautiful week and many cat kisses!



  1. Green parrots?!?! (fabulous!)

    Fur-Free living room?!?!? (I'm currently envious!)

    MLKJ!?!?! (happy holiday miss!)

  2. I can't believe you can see parrots in your trees. So awesome!

  3. Your cats are too sweet! I love Olser's face (I have a thing for gingers).

    I'm with Umber and Kristin.... Parrots in your trees??!?? Wow! That'd be awesome to see.

  4. Good morning all of you lovely friends,

    Yes, yes, parrots and i only captured a few! There are flocks of them. I think perhaps one person years ago let free a couple, and then they multiplied! How amazing is that?! I will try to be camera-equipped to capture a better scene next time!


  5. Loved your photos! Hope you have a great week! xo

  6. Mrs. Little Jeans...thank you so much for visiting this morning....I bet your little lions would love to be chasing the wild turkeys in my photo!...

    there is a documentary on a man, called "The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill" , I believe...he is a caretaker of a huge flock living in San Francisco....
