The visitor . . .

Mew has her evening routine and she adheres to it. J or BigEd will tell her that it's "time to go to bed, little kitty," (little, she no longer is) and she will come out from wherever and head for her sleeping quarters. Last evening after calling, no cat. We looked behind the sofa and there she was, watching intently out the floor length window. J raised the curtain to see what she was so focused on.

Lying pressed up to the window and watching her placidly was a bulldog. It was wearing a harness and trying to sniff noses with her through the glass. Mew was not all *haired* up and evidently the dog had been there for a while giving her time to calm down. There were no vocalizations or threats either. She was fascinated by this phlegmatic dog.

It was a good thing that J did not surprise Mew, however. You never know . . .

It has shaken her routine in the afternoon; hence, the dog has not left. The Mewster did not know the night time visitor slept in the back yard. She stayed in the front of the house because there were noises of a sprayer of some kind out the front door.

Hi, there! I was over at Zeta's blog and linked over to yours as well! Thanks for all of your nice posts around 'wedding-time!' (I can't believe this is the first time I've read them!) Can you believe it's been almost a year? If you would like to look at all of the pictures online, or at our honeymoon pictures, visit my online photo album: http://piccpiper1.myphotoalbum.com. Enjoy!

Big Ed, the sprayer was a neighbor who was pressure cleaning our sidewalks, driveway, and porch.

Elissa, we are happy to have you visit. I did go to your album site and enjoyed it. I still haven't seen everything and have to go back for more.
