The natural world around me, both a few steps and a few miles, away.

Out of My Rear Window 9-4-11
It's dark, and quiet, with the threat of thunderstorms and heavy rain this afternoon. But, at least with those storms comes a promise of relief from the heat and humidity that we have suffered through the past couple of days.
The feeder was quiet early this morning, with only a squirrel and a few chipmunks grabbing breakfast.
Gradually, the place livened up, with this Mourning Dove making an appearance.
And, then, the English Sparrows (they're also called House Sparrows) and blackbirds showing up. Oh, and lots and lots of chipmunks.
At least, the cats are awake today, so far.
Becky - with spooky eyes again because, if she's awake, she always has to be looking at Mom.
And, then, there's Leon. Yup, sleeping again. Eat, sleep and, occasionally, run around the house like a crazy thing, that's my Leon's life.
Big excitement this afternoon. My next door neighbor is coming over to help me set up my new laptop and my wireless network. My old tabletop computer is beginning to sputter a bit and I decided that I would just go ahead and get a laptop, so I'm not tied to one spot. Then, when the old computer dies, the laptop will become my main computer.
