The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-You and Me and a Dog Named Boo, July 1, 2022

Mom said I needed a dog.

Mom said she needed a dog.

Mom said Dad needed a dog.

Who would have thought?

I don’t mind dogs.  Actually, I like dogs.  All dogs any dogs.

So, guess what?!

I have a dog! Of which I am bigger.

Who would have thought?

Anyway, this is Boo Betty.  She came to Mom from a friend of hers and Dad.  Boo needed a new home.

Mom said we were dog-less.

Therefore, I now have my own dog friend (of which I am the boss) and the family has a dog and Boo Betty has US!!

(Oh, by the way, Boo Betty has chosen Dad.  I have Mom, Boo has Dad, and we all have each other!)

When Least Expected —- Thursday, June 30, 2022

I just love this spot

Ah…toasty on the toes

Warm sun on the feathers

Fluff, ruffle, settle

Yes, I think I’ll—

Settle down for a wee warm

SCRAM! This is MINE!!!

In the Shadows of Big White Fluffy Clouds — Wednesday, June 29, 2022

A random assortment of wildlife

Quail doing his mating dance


A Dust Devil playing across the farm

The songs of the Red-Winged Blackbirds fill the air

Sunlight through little bunny ears

Art from the Earth—a rock flower

Searching, searching

Shimmering beautifully, deadly in the air

Moonlight grass

Moon (and Star?)

Mr. Pheasant running down the lane

Bird shadows

The beauty of Tail and wings

Gifts of love everywhere

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,


You Just THINK You Want Me to Go WITH You —- Monday, June 27, 2022

You just think I’m going with you.

I don’t Care if T’Ata and Glory Bee are going!

You aren’t going to make me go


Get this through your head…

I only go if I WANT to go! said LaVerne the Mule as she dashed this way and that.

So, that is what happened.  LaVerne stayed home (and bawled and cried and ran up and down in the pasture)

While T’Ata and Glory Bee went for a nice long walk-about.

LaVerne the Mule—guess what?  There is a saying: “Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face.”

Nose? Nose? Why would I cut off my nose?  LaVerne puzzled.

Oh, muley girl, you just don’t get it.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,


The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Farm Adventures, MOTH, June 24, 2022

Mom and I had just come out of the house

Where I had been eating BREAKFAST!!!

I go out early, early in the morning

Just at Daybreak

Not Daylight


Why so early?

Gosh, there are things to do

Stuff to see

And MICE to catch!


Mom and I came out the backdoor together

Mom going over to feed the Humming Birds

And I, to walk with Mom


What is it?

Just as I saw IT, so did Mom

I saw Mom put her hand down by the It


No more IT

I wonder what happened to IT?

Oh, well, gone.
