Friday Cat Blogging With Photoshop

From Album 5
With all the awful news this week, we're sticking close to home -- that's a lily in my front yard that bloomed, appropriately enough, on Easter Sunday. But this is photoshopped. Lilies are toxic to cats -- and dogs -- so that's the only way he's going to get anywhere near it.

Have a good weekend.

From Album 5
Wow, imagine, militarize the police...and they start acting like an occupying force...

What Happens When "My Other Car Is A Boat" Becomes A Necessity?

From Album 5
Or if "The Ship of State" has to be a ship...literally? OK, let's once again note that climate isn't weather...but when the climate DOES change, unusual weather becomes...not-so-unusual. And then we're all in a hell of a lot of trouble.

Meanwhile, In Missouri

From Album 5
I don't know the facts and obviously didn't witness it, but if the allegations have any truth...holy shit. And, not to equate in any way, but some time back I had an encounter with one sworn to protect and serve that was...well, I was riding a bike and ordered over the loudspeaker to "get that bike on the sidewalk where it belongs." Which is actually not where it belongs, but I wasn't going to argue...

I can very easily imagine the cop making a similar command...but find it truly scary that anything short of immediate compliance is met with lethal force. That's...not a free state.
