こんばんは。This evening a friend came over for dinner and I think the one who was most excited to have a guest over was Lani. She always gets extra treats, so it’s understandable. 😊 It was funny that when Lani recognized who was at the door, she went nuts and did a few laps around the house in excitement. She’s so funny.

Tonight’s menu included burgers and sliders, homemade fries, and a couple of yummy and fancy salads. And Mariko baked some fresh buns for the burgers so it was extra-good!

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Isn’t it amazing that dogs can be so cute and affectionate in one moment, and then change to fierce and scary beasts the next? Lani, for instance, will growl and bark at the cat outside the window, but when someone walks up to the front door, she takes it to another level and sounds absolutely vicious! 😲 It’s really alarming. Thank goodness she’s on our side.

The photo above was taken when she began transforming into her non-evil version.

Monday Snapshots

“New Mic” Cedar Park, 2019

Hi there! Just a couple of snapshots today… the first is of a new microphone I bought for recording Koa’s percussion concerts. It’s an inexpensive shotgun microphone which plugs into our Fujifilm X-T10. I only tried it out to see if it works so I don’t know the quality, but it should be an improvement over the camera’s built-in mic.

The second photo is of Yuzu, relaxing on the toast pillow by the ol’ printer. ☺

In other news, I’m going to shoot more using the 16:9 aspect ratio. Years ago when I started building websites, I was really into wide-format imagery. I still find it attractive, so I’ll be taking more photos using it.

I hope you had a great day!

Anko the Sink Cat

“Anko by the Sink” Cedar Park, 2019

Our silly cat Anko drinks water from the faucet, much like a hamster or rabbit drinks out of their water bottle. But she also likes to hang out at the sink and look out the window. It’s probably her favorite place in the house!

Another odd thing is that as soon as I go up to the sink and turn on the faucet, she’ll run from wherever she is and come jump up on the counter, even though she may have just drunk a bunch of water. I guess it’s just a learned response now. Such a strange cat!

I hope you had a nice Friday!
