My 2018 Top 100 on Spotify; it’s a tad eclectic. Brit Pop, Bluegrass, College Rock, Electro Pop, Folk, Jazz, Prog Rock, and Soul.

British Passport

Rinse and Repeat. The shop assistant squealed, she’d never seen a passport before, let alone a British one … The UK and the US. It’s often said that they are two nations separated by a common language. After ten years living in the US I can confirm that it is still true. [Five-minute read. 1 picture.]

Ginger & Sprinky – When you can’t get any work done because your cat likes Bach’s Cello Suites as much as you do… [30 sec. Video]

Meanwhile, here are some kitties – Life got busy, and things like processing and posting pictures have had to take a back seat. So, in the meantime here are some cuuute kitties. [3 pictures]

A black and white photograph of Gary Allman, Springfield Missouri

Gary Allman, August 26, 2018. I saw a tired person peering back at me from the bathroom mirror this morning, and I thought I’d get a picture of what I saw. [4 pictures]

Oops — Wherein a dripping, semi-naked Brit loses the plot or something. [Many words, 2 pictures]

Maybe I should stop taking pictures for a couple of years — That way I might be able to clear the backlog.

I think I know what killed the fridge-freezer – The cats. Plus: Pride before a fall & I love it when a plan (albeit Plan B) comes together. [2 pictures]

Google Voice #Fail – This was the result of Ginger calling me via Google Voice.

Desk-buddy – Yesterday I thought Sprinky had finally grown tired of laying on my desk, but no, here she stays, pretty much 24 x 7. [6 pictures]

D’oh! In a repeat of the dishwasher dying right after I spent money on a new hammock … The freezer died tonight, less than a week after we laid down the cash on our new furniture.

This Wasn’t Part Of The Plan – When I cleared my office and changed the couch I did not anticipate the increased attention my office would get from the feline members of the family. [5 pictures]

IKEA Tetris – Working on a more adult-friendly house and some furniture shopping [3 pictures]

Painted in big letters on the back fence: “VIDEO! DOG BITES!” Large sign on the side of the same house: “STOLEN DOG. $500 REWARD…” You cannot make these things up.

Evening Prayer at Kanuga. [3 pictures]

Mao & Tubbs. I had been getting a refill of coffee from the kitchen when I walked by these two looking particularly cute. [1 picture]

7am — View from My Office Window. This morning’s view from my office window didn’t augur well for an undisturbed day’s work. [2 pictures]

The Unknown Joys of Cartography. Several years ago we made a map … [Words only]

This cat configuration is what we call a ‘Tri-Puss’. [1 picture]

Our poor little tropical Burmese likes to find somewhere warm to sleep, plus I’ve been busy. [1 picture and a few words]

How can I be expected to work with such large, noisy, and fascinating distractions outside my office window?
