    Well that's made me smile today. Well done and good luck with the new venture.
    Thanks Chris. It's admin assistant in the Psychology department at the Uni of Leicester. I'll be working in the George Davies Medical Sciences Building. It's a full-time, permanent position. No specific start date yet. Uni staff are now on holiday for Easter till next Wednesday anyway.
    Couldn't get to sleep last night till sometime after 3.00.

    To all of you who have offered me encouragement and good wishes, and especially at those times when I was sunk in near-despair, thank you, thank you, thank you my brothers and sisters.

    Wife.

    Cat.

    Two feet on the floor.

    Nice crisp Snap in the air, and a new beginning.


    😊

    if you see a show in NJ and think you recognize us through some of my posts (it’s obvious) take a shot, tap me on the shoulder, I’d love to shake hands with any and all personally, have a beer, respectfully agree or disagree face to face about the worlds ills, and enjoy a great show.

    see the glass half full. 👍

    No worries GG. Our bobcats are here because we have lots of tasty rabbits so we're happy they help keep their numbers down and they don't attack humans or cats and dogs. I've even seen bobcats several times out the kitchen window walking through the yard! The bigger wild cats in North America are a different story but fortunately there are none of them around here (although there used to be). We also have plenty of coyotes and both red and grey foxes, and we even had a black bear roaming around a few years ago but apparently he's gone.

    Stay inside K-shmitty. That thing looks dangerous. Just prowlin' around the neighbourhood lookin' for slow ducks and injured woodpeckers.

    Here's a good picture of one of our wild cat friends. This was taken by a trail camera about 40m from our house's back porch.

    Happy 14th Birthday to our best little girl!! 🥰
    Such cold, merciless eyes. 😉


    Just watching the seeds of love by the Beatles, sorry Tears for Fears, when I finally noticed something hiding in plain sight .

    At the very start. Image static. Butterfly shakes it's wings. Video begins.


    THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT

    Doesn't cause a hurricane but does kickoff the best song of the 80's.

    Made me smile.
