Tuesday Morning


and zero coyotes :)

Loft Addition

What's a mid-century modern loft without a metal-sculptured flock of birds?

6/29/15 Morning Walk

Monday morning's walk started out quiet. We entered the trail and avoided the short cuts through the taller grass. But about half way down something made me turn around. 

About 10 feet behind us was the lighter coyote that had been part of the pair that boxed us in last week was following us. When I stopped and turned around, so did she. (No idea whether male or female really but I wasn't planning on checking, either.) I waved my arms and shooed, and she stood her ground and growled. 

It only took one rock thrown her way to get her to scamper off the other direction, though. 

Guess whose got rocks in her pockets from now on?

2015 Colorado Ren Fest (but mostly Big Cats)



Talked Sam into a hobby horse ride:

 The Boys at the Pirate Shop


Celtic Legacy

 Great Cats World


This is Maki, the Fishing Cat. He's just a year old and rountinely climbs his handler's leg to get to the treat pouch. 


This is  Malachi the Snow Leopard, who is the shyest of the bunch, and who does not appreciate clapping. This is as far out as he wanted to get.



 Dexter,  the Black Leopard,  is 5 and loves applause. 

And this is Banshee, who is just a baby. She's only about 7 months old and she is teething and wants to wrestle. 





As you can tell, I could not get enough of her.

The Rocky Mountain Raptor birds were hanging out, but not too close to the Big Cats show


We finished the afternoon with Arsene, who pulled Jason into his act.







Nick and his pirate booty (the shirt and the stein, of course)

tip for all go-ers: bring your own shade!!
