My husband discovered a new Mexican restaurant. Once there, I talked him into outdoor dining.

What a mistake.

You see, for the first time in decades I ordered a sugary cocktail. Yes, my peach daquiri tasted good and fruity. Unfortunately, local bees wanted a taste. Too bad I didn't think to take a photo of my glass covered with napkins, a hole punched through for my straw. And I'm not a fan of whipped toppings, so I dumped a few spoonfuls on the ground a few feet away, which also helped to a degree.

Are you a fan of sweet cocktails and/or nonalcoholic drinks? Do you like whipped cream?

Tenacious Terra Episode 1

Terra Cotta Dactyl has tried my patience more than once. This feline athlete goes to great lengths for attention. Try watching television and you might find yourself looking at something like this in her wake…

A ghost reaching out from beyond?
Or something more sinister?

Exasperated one day, I threw a lint ball at her. Silly Terra carried the thing around like a trophy. Finding it across the house next to their water bowl, I stooped to take a photo.

The ball consisted mainly of cat fur
collected off my comforter.
Fitting, no?

Another toy rescued from drowning -
classic brat cat behavior.

Having knocked this little cabinet over
she promptly lay atop it before
boredom sent her seeking
trouble elsewhere...

Can you believe nobody has gotten hurt yet? Anyone want to take bets on how long before her ornery self breaks my fish tank lid and lands in the water?
