August Skies

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed---and gazed---but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

~ William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

Oriental Cat Vs. Small Chihuahua

 In this corner of the old beat up chair, we have Kali the Feisty, weighing in at a svelte 4.5 pounds! And in this corner, we have the Mighty Zarathustra, weighing in at a hefty 15 pounds!

 It's cats vs dog in the epic and time old battle. All combatants will play nice, of course... it's all in fun!

The chi gets in a sneaky belly nip.
The cat bats her in the head, claws in.

Om nom the heads!

The kill!!!
I think the cat won eventually.... hard to tell sometimes..

And a video... because I can! (sorry it is sideways... I don't know how to fix that in YouTube)
