cats, family album, leeks


Posted by PicasaWayside cats curled up in sympathetic union.

While assembling photographs into a Picasa family album, I upload a photograph of my grandmother, which arrives initially at the bottom of the window, where the most recent photographs of her descendants are ranged  less or less in sequence of age. To bring her to her rightful place at the top of the window, I click and drag her picture in the desired direction, and realize that in the process I am leading her through an assembly of her offspring and their offspring and their respective partners - a strange journey through time if not for me, certainly for her.

A packet of baby leeks, acquired from the supermarket this afternoon, bears the legend: "Subtle and sweet".

Love the sleeping cats.
Possibly siblings?

The cats resemble hand muffs when they're curled up like that. Not that I'd ever consider using a cat for such a purpose...

I don't know if they are related, CC. I can't remember precisely where I saw them.

You could try, HKatz in suitable cold weather, if a cat is to hand.

You've got two left cats there...
