Ever wanted to own one of my prints? Here's your chance! Each of my prints are mounted on lightweight matboard, and all of the color prints are on a metallic paper that just drips with saturated color.

Is a honeybee tongue.


If you look closely, you can see the bee licking the minerals that have collected on the side of this water tank in Arizona.

I spent last weekend about 30 miles  from the  Mexican border, in southern Arizona.  My dad used to work out at Fort Huachuca as a contractor when I was but a wee pup, and we drove onto the base to take a peek around.

And lo and behold. they had one of his projects sitting out in a park!

my dad and his plane

This is a RC-12G Crazyhorse intelligence aircraft, aka Project Guardrail.  My dad worked on a number of the systems for this one, most of them having to do with the intelligence-gathering parts of the planes.  He did get to fly one during a test run, which he said was a lot of fun. 

My dad's retired now, as is the RC-12G, but I don't think I've ever been that close to something he worked on before.  His projects don't often make it into museums.  (The other project he spent many years working on, the Quick Fix helicopter project, is still in use in the Middle East as far as I know.)

calling all angels

(go to the album)

As always, the 4th of July was wonderful. It's always good to see everyone, collect hugs, and blow things up.  As usual, the food was excellent (the goat cheese macaroni and cheese was amazing), and the company just as good.  The fireworks took almost two hours to go through this year; we went a little overboard.  :)

And for the first time in ever, i came home without any mosquito bites!

B&L have taken the dogs and gone to the coast, so I will be basically working, writing, and playing Dragon Age (they released a DLC today) for the next few days.  I have been having some misadventures in kittens.  I forgot that you have to keep them awake in the evening, because if you let them nap they'll be up at 1 am, playing with your blinds.  

But quiet time is good, as is housecleaning, and I'm getting both of those in this week.

I was so busy during Norwescon that I barely pulled out my camera. I did get a prime seat for the Kitten Sundae concert, though, and did what photography I could from where I was.

Two of my favorites are here; click through to go to the album and see the rest. Represented in the album are [ profile] vixyish, [ profile] solcita, [ profile] s00j, and more!

concerned otter would like you to tell him your troubles.
Concerned otter would like to hear about your mother.

I went to the Northwest Trek photo tour yesterday, and it was worth every single penny I paid for it. Seriously, it was amazing.

Some of the story and my favorite photos below the cut.

insane lilacs

I've been planting lilacs along the side fence for a while now, and finally, this year, one of them blossomed. When I looked at it, I immediately remembered why I had planted this particular lilac variety--look at those blossoms!

Romani poses for the camera
Originally uploaded by Nareshe.
Romani posed for me when I was down taking care of cats last night. Got pictures of everyone except Wolf, who has not forgiven me for washing his butt the first time I came down.

(Wolf is 26-ish pounds of extremely fluffy cat. He occasionally has poop issues. I will spare you the descriptions. It's a good thing I like Jen and Storm as much as I do. :)

Also note: Romani's pupils are actually the same size. The blue of her irises gets more intense near the pupil, is all.

Take a picture of yourself right now.
don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair...just take a picture.
post that picture with NO editing.
post these instructions with your picture.

Taken last night at Storm and Jen's, while I was writing and letting cats play on my legs. I look like I was called for but couldn't come.

big grin

I uploaded a few dog pictures this weekend; this is my favorite of Boone, who is posing like the happy boy he is. I've been working on getting back into running, and have been taking both the dogs with me when I go out. Boone loves to run, so very much. He's built for both speed and distance and has a ground-eating lope with a stride length that just about matches mine.

Pip's been coming along, and will be until I graduate from running 90 seconds at a time to 5 minutes. Pip is a born sprinter, and it's hard for her to remember that we are running together, not playing chase. She does settle down at about the mile point, when her initial energy is worked off. I'm actually not worried about her balking when she gets tired or having to carry her. She's so game that I'm mostly worried about her hurting herself by trying to keep up with me on the longer stretches. Her stride is shorter than mine and Boone's, which means that compared to Boone she's expending more energy running than he is.

But for the moment, she comes along, and she loves it. We stop for potty breaks a few times per run, and the dogs run with their tongues flapping in the breeze, just happy to be alive and moving.

thinking hard about that bottle
Originally uploaded by Nareshe.
...I've uploaded pictures of an extended-extended family baby to Flickr. The rest of the pictures from the zoo trip will be coming later this week.

This gave me some practice removing the inevitable scabs from a baby's face. The Photoshop heal tool is fabulous.
