iMac And Back Again

Admittedly, I’ve been an Apple user and serious fanboy since 1986; when I bought my first Mac Plus for my Bond Street recording studio in Asbury Park. From there a Mac II — and ten years later — a SuperMac Mac-Clone. What always amazed me — besides a Mac’s ease of use , and creativity boosting abilities — was how long they lasted! I was never one to buy one Mac, then need to buy the latest and greatest out of Cupertino a year later. Mac’s…Continue Reading “iMac And Back Again 2008 – 2015”

An Angel Comes It was an unseasonably sunny—cool yet warm enough—early fall Sunday morning in Seattle. I had heard tales about a beautiful young calico-tabby-mix cat that had been hanging around the Villa Capri. People were putting food and water out on the landings, as well as boxes—I guess for it to sleep in. I had no personal sighting yet—only stories. People were saying they would see her, but could never touch her—she was skittish. They said she looked very young too. Not seeing her—that…Continue Reading “An Angel Comes. An Angel Goes.”

ICANHAZ BATTLE CAT ACTION AND OR PHOTOS

Manx cats by nature are a playful lot. Rocky and Rose are no exception. This brother and sister tag team spend some part of every day, chasing each other all over the house. Then when it’s time to “play who’s dominant now” … it’s a trade. Sometimes Rocky … the big orange boy cat. Or Most times his little sister Rose. I never saw a cat that small be the alpha cat in a household. And poor Angel, the oldest cat out of them all…Continue Reading “iCanHaz Battle Cat Action And Or Photos”

Rock & Ro!!

The kids are alright. They just celebrated their 3rd birthday. Okay. Shoot me. It’s a fluff piece about our cats. No pun intended. Now we can never be sure when exactly they were born, it’s just an approximation using higher math functions. Or just counting backwards. Though for some … that is is higher math … these days. But I digress. We got them when they were approximately six weeks old … give or take. Rocky and Rose were rescued cats born in a manger…Continue Reading “The Kids Are Alright”

Condo

The sunny days of the previous week had dissolved into gray that day, and the skies wept because of it. The creek was running high from accumulated downpours. The air was cool and damp as I opened the sliding door. I needed that little brisk slap to fully awaken. But then again … did I really need to be fully awake? I sat at my computer like most other mornings watching the cats rustle, stretch and yawn, starting their lazy day. Started my morning reads….Continue Reading “Cat Overboard”

One day we say “good-bye” and the next we say “hello!” And so it goes. Today is another anniversary. It’s the one year anniversary we brought home two new additions to our household. During the time we were preparing ourselves for Mr Mason to head off to ‘the big bunny hop in the sky,’ Chris & I also talked about the possibility of getting another cat. Not that we could ever replace the ‘furry potato’ … but we knew we wanted the joy of raising…Continue Reading “Hello Rock & Ro!!”
