Friend..ly Photo Challenge

My friend likes to sit on my lap, whenever I’m sitting down.  She leaps very quietly onto the chair or bed I happen to be using, and purrs loudly to get my attention.  My lap is always warm when Kikyo the Aristo-Cat is on my lap.

She also likes to snuggle up to her glass “friend”, which is on our high plant shelf.  It takes a long leap across the gap from the banister on the stairs, to the top of the coat closet, for her to get there in the first place, which is quite remarkable.  I’ll bet she doesn’t even know that the glass vase is supposed to be a cat!

And then, she sprawls out in the most undignified posture I’ve ever seen!

RushBabe49 SCORES on Ricochet

I wrote a Ricochet post on the dustup between some students and a biology professor at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, and the total lack of publicity of this by the local “mainstream” media. So now my RB49 Followers can get a taste of Ricochet, since my post was promoted from the Member Feed (members only) to the Main Feed, the public-facing part of Ricochet.

Herewith, a link to my post.  Comments are welcome here.  Last time I looked, the post itself had 19 likes, and 51 comments.

And here is the video link, which Ricochet redacted due to language.  I expect my readers   to take this in stride.

 

And here is another LINK to a great TruthRevolt article about this incident.

Weekly Photo Challenge…Evanescent

What could be more evanescent than cut flowers?  Once cut, they only last for a few days, but those few days immeasurably improve the lives of those who see them.  My best girlfriend gave me pretty flowers for my birthday last month, and we put them in a vase on the kitchen table.  Remarkably, they lasted nearly two weeks!

Aren’t they gorgeous?  I was sitting at the table when it occurred to me that they would look great against the plain white wall, so I knelt down to take the second photo from below the rim of the table.  Now, I can look at them any time, and the evanescent flowers can last a very long time.
