First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Pretty good so far, isn't it?
Next, as Ammy told you yesterday, last night was the full moon, and a blue moon! Frankly, it still looked yellowy-gold to me, but what do I know? I'll consult with the Guide Dog for the Color Blind after his nap. I mean... after he gets off Guard Duty. Here's a photo Mom took of the moon last night!
Moon over Manhattan (Kansas)
Pretty cool, I have to admit.
What number are we on, three? It's also Photo Finish Friday! Mom took some pretty cool shots of me a couple days ago; they're for my official Ao4 portrait. Check them out! Here's the first:
Don't I look all serious and cool? Very military, don't you think? Here's another:
And here's a third:
I think I like that first one best; what do you all think?
You know why I had to get a new portrait done, don't you? Because today is my honorary birthday!!! HA ROO! (Not my "Gotcha Day" or "Zimaversary" - that's back in August. This is the day we choose to celebrate my birth!) So yeah - I'm 10 now! The double-digits, just like everyone else here at Ao4 HQs! Pretty cool, huh?
Speaking of cool... between the big snow we got before Mom's trip and the blizzard Santa gave us for Christmas, I've been building some really cool snow forts lately. (Channel 49 Storm Team even put one of my pix on the 6 o'clock news again! Thanks, Storm Team!) Mom is still learning how to do things like this, but she put a little slideshow together for you using iMovie. It's me working on some of my really cool snow forts! Turn your speakers up and hit "play". I hope you enjoy!
Almost like being there with me, isn't it? (Music by Ella Fitzgerald; movie directed by Stormy.)
Happy New Year, everyone!
