I have more of the good ones to show you today. I'll just sort of narrate what was going on.
In this one, I was pretty sure I saw some cats in our garden.
|"Zim! I think some of your cat friends are over there!"|
Zim saw them, too, and gave them his million-dollar smile.
Then I saw Maude the Bully Cat (TBC) and gave her my warning:
|"Hey, Maude! You better not come over here!"|
"Ha roo roo roo!"
Mom could have offered a whole watermelon at that point and I really wouldn't have cared. TBC was on the prowl and I wasn't going to let her invade our space. (Again.)
|"I'm serious, Bully Cat!"|
"Ha roo roo roo!"
I think somebody slipped some silly sauce into Zim's breakfast, 'cuz he just couldn't stop laughing the whole time! Mom said a whole lot of stuff and I think she might have even offered me that whole watermelon if I'd just look at the camera... but I just couldn't do it. She finally said it was time to go inside. Zim was a bit concerned about her.
|"Mom? Are you OK? You seem a bit ... frazzled."|
I think maybe the heat was getting to Mom. We went in and decided to come out again in the late afternoon.
You KNOW what I had to do before we could start posing for our afternoon session.
|"Hey, Bully Cat! Are you still out here?!?!"|
I had to make sure the coast was clear. I thought maybe Fluffy Black Cat was over in her yard and Zim thought Maude had gone home, so we checked for them both.
|"I've got your 6, Dave!"|
"Got yours, too, little bro!"
I was pretty sure Fluffy Black was over nosing around in our Mums, but she's never threatened any of us, so I'm cool with her. Zim gave up on TBC and Mom pretty much gave up on trying to get us to pose together ... but Zim didn't give up on Fluffy Black.
|"Hey, Fluffster! Are you over there?!!? Wanna hang out together?"|
At least the plants in the big pot look like they're looking at Mom, with big geranium eyes. Ha woo.
Mom decided to get between Zim and Fluffy Black ... and got this shot:
I think that was right after the one of Zim with his nose in the plants, but Mom said "Good enough!" and called it a wrap.
I hope you enjoyed our photo shoots for Flag Day and the US Army birthday! Now let me go see if Mom was serious about that whole watermelon. Or at least a little piece of the cantaloupe she sliced up last night!
