Look Out!

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie!  Even though we've had a lot of skies that look like this lately:

Mammatus Clouds

... we've also had some wonderfully sunny parts of the days! Lately, I've been exploring our decks and learning all the good look-out points! Let's head down to the lower deck and I'll show you, OK?


If you come over here, where the deck wraps around the northern part of Ao4 HQs, you can see all kinds of stuff.


One of the neighbor kids photo-bombed my post. Hmm.  Anyway, sometimes there are birdies or bunnies over by our honeysuckle by the steps, so it's important to check that scene!

Let's go over to the big part of the lower deck! Part of it is under our upper deck, so it's nice and shady a lot of the time. You can see to the west and to the south.

"Is anyone out there?!?"

You know what's to the south of us, don't you? Fluffy Black Cat's house!!! Wait! I think I see her!  Head to the high ground - quick!

"Must get to the high ground!"

Zimmie taught me that "high ground" thing.  He's real smart about stuff like that!

I couldn't see FBC from the landing on the stairs, so I headed all the way up top and struck a pose:

"Halt!  Who goes there?!?"

"I think that should scare off any intruders, don't you?"

Here's my "I could go for a hug and a treat, please" pose:


It worked, in case anyone was wondering!

Back to the "look out" part!  When you see this from the upper deck ...

Big storm rolling in!

... it's time to say "Look out!" and head inside!  Or if you're our mom, grab the camera or iPhone and go take pictures.  (If you'd like to see more pix of our stormy weather, please click here to visit our set on Flickr!)

But anyway ... whether it's to be a "look-out" or to say "look out!", the deck is the place to be!

Thanks for looking out with me!

  4. Cam-a-Roo I sure would like to hang out with yooou on the decker-ooooo. hehhehhe. That is very cool. I fon't have a deck, just a patio. But I like it. I get great views on my mountians. And I have a fluffy black cat too. But it is not a nice one. To attacks me by jumping on my face from the top of my fence. Maybe you and the boys could come over and have a talk with myFBC.

  5. We are so jealous of your beautiful yard. We will take the sunny skies over those pretty but scary clouds
    Happy Friday

  7. You have a pawfect deck for patrol! I don't have anything near that pawesome.

  8. Hey Camo, Please make sure you take cover if the storm moves closer o.k. Your clouds look ominous! I always watch the color of the clouds during this time of year. I love your shaded area of deck and your yard is so pretty.

  11. Zimmie taught you very well Camo! Our mommy would love to give you a hug! What's up with that neighbor kid photobombing you though! Those skies would have sent our mommy for cover! She gets so nervous about our Grandpa from KS that she keeps trying to get him to move out here where there aren't thunderstorms or tornadoes. So far he says nope.

  12. What a nice deck you have, and you make it look even lovelier with your nice poses. Those clouds are sure interesting. We never saw anything like that, so wavy and all. Glad you got some sunshine, too.
