Cat & Ladder

Burned out lightbulb in kitchen ceiling. Young 9 month Stewart had never seen a ladder. He commenced to try and climb up it but, didn't quite have it figured out yet. The pictures tell the story. He sat up and enjoyed the view, then was hesitant to climb down. The walk up was precious but by the time I got the camera he'd gotten down but thankfully, tried again. This time quicker. (I need a Flip Cam dammit!) Click on the photo to see them full sized.

Not sure how this deal works, not like my cat tree with the carpet lofts.

Enjoying the view as he figures out how to start down the steps.

Hell with the steps, just leap downward.

*Click on any photo to see full-sized.

More Mardi Gras Cajun Tunes

Will start with some Cajun tunes and move into the city with traditional New Orleans jazz.
Meant to promote this two days ago but been resting my eyes...literally. So if you find yourself with a snow day, or just a blah Tuesday, and need some music to cheer you up. tune in. No adds, no talking. Quick 30 minutes or so, give or take, of tunes.

Ok, using the old Olympus with no tripod. NOT taking out the NikonD as it's snowing a very wet snow. Just as the snow plow came by the stupid camera started beeping as if batteries were dying. It does this when it gets cold, too. Just like me, I beep when I'm cold :-D.

Sorry they are blurry, too slippery for the tripod, and flash doesn't work when it's still snowing at the lens, as you will see by the one photo. Be interesting to see how much we get as the ground is warmer, snow seems to be sinking into the ground but grass is now covered.
But honestly, all the hoopla on the tv screens are over done as usual. Imagine what tv is like in D.C. where 30 inches is being forecast!!!!

I'm not grabbing a can a Spam, a bottle of water and the family pets to gather under the bed for great Cincy's snOMG nonsense.
