Anything to Stay Warm

In the 10-degree (fahrenheit) weather, this fur ball knows where he needs to be to feel some heat. He better be careful. Based on what I've seen around here, he could get made into a hat!

Great photo - and that cat doesn't appear to have missed any meals! (Or they grow extra thick fur in that area to protect them from the cold!)

Perhaps a little of both, W2W!

He needs to go to Joy's house (Good Morning Mary Sunshine)! She just posted an entry titled "Feelin Toasty"; Her furnace is finally fixed after a frigid weekend waiting for UPS to bring the part that broke...

...so, send the chat to chez Joy : )

Hope Russia's treating you right : ) (ooh, sorry, bad form, "Ukraine", not "Russia")

Bird Woman better stay away from Cat Man, lol. I am glad to see the animals are getting in on the action :O) Hope Photo Stud is having a good trip too. I am off for my H1N1 shot this morning. FUN!

The Ukraine is treating me well, Hindsfeet. The people seem very kind. I worked in a gigantic unheated warehouse today that was an arms manufacturing facility during WWII. It was very cold - so cold that I kept 3 or 4 layers on all day long, including heavy snow boots. The next 2 days are shooting outside all day long in single digit cold. I'm prepared for it, so hopefully it will go ok.

You know me, Carol, I have a natural attraction to the animals - birds, dogs, cats, hamsters...you name it. I'll never be known as a "landscape" shooter - not that there's anything wrong with that. I just like shooting people and animals so much. And when there are people AND animals in the same shot - EUREKA.

Ha! Talk about a perspective check! I was whining this AM having to double up on my sweatshirts for my morning training run as I braced myself for the 45 degree weather outside, haha...bet you'd pay money for those 40 or so more degrees, huh? ; ) ...

...which makes me wonder, with all those marathons under your belt, have any of them been overseas, any cool destination runs?

Dan Denardo said...

No overseas marathons, Hindsfeet. My most unique marathon was Anchorage, AK...run on the summer solstice -- 24 hrs of daylight. Saw a mouse at 23 miles!

Hindsfeet said...

Oh Dan, you didn't really!?! Running the "Midnight Run" is my DREAM!! (Actually being a bush pilot in Alaska is my dream, but that's another story)...I looked up that marathon when I heard about it last year and placed it on my mental "to-do" list...hopefully minus the mouse ; )

...one day, one day...
