Nope, message not edited. That's it you have a HUGH dictionary of Yoga terms (probably in Sanskrit :-)
Atlas moth, Attacus atlas
(I'm not a lepidopterist...but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night...)
Aw jeez, I just noticed Dan's # 19. Gotta keep up with these...
Not a pretty picture.
Wonderful. But I think there must be something in my eye...
A similar story I have to share.
My friend has an outdoor fish pond about 2 by 1 meter oval with a ledge.
Many years ago he also had a very inquisitive kitten, about 12 weeks old.
Well, the pond was totally covered with 'duck weed'. A perfect bright green surface.
We were sitting on the edge when the kitten decided to walk over this strange green surface. The shock on the kittens face was amazing. She spluttered to the edge, we pulled her out and then after a few shocked seconds she proceeded to get rid of that green stuff. Lick, lick, lick for quite a few minutes.
Since she was totally black, the duckweed looked strange draped all over her. We tried not to laugh but...
I had a Siamese that I had to wash every now and then because he loved being outside and rolling in the dust and would get very smelly now and then. I felt so horrible...it always took a day or so to mend our relationship and I was lucky if I didn't accidently get clawed to death in the process. He was a shoulder sitter and head-next-to-yours-on-the-pillow bed partner, so...
Going outside was his downfall; sadly one night I came home from work and let him out and he never came back. Boy that was rough, what heartbreak! Didn't even find his collar.
This could be his doppelganger. Very friendly and smart. Intense though.
He would get lovey and amorous and stare just like this, loudly purring:
My parents have a Siamese, who lives in absolute, blind, soul-consuming worship of my father. (She likes my mom, but nobody else can even approach her.) I've never seen such devotion in any animal... or people, come to think of it. Except when she's napping or he's out, she's always next to him or on him. Any absences of his are spent hunger-striking, and howling in undertone until she's too exhausted to go on. She sleeps then on his pyjamas (she ALWAYS sleeps with my parents! They do this silly thing when making/unmaking the bed where they rock her on a bedsheet between themselves. She LOVES it. It's hilarious!) My dad dotes on her too. I seriously worry about him after her inevitable demise (She's thirteen, in good shape and getting tons of TLC, but what cat is forever...)
Her hostility to everyone else and what seems like a generalised fear (they say the Siamese often have some neurological problems) makes her love of my dad all that more poignant to me.
Apparently their hair fibers are hollow and water repellent...
Make it smaller maybe? Or delete a couple iterations if it's not a single image.
Am I the only one who really wishes they could spend an entire month in Mongolia?
And yes, there is a pattern for that. It's available on Ravelry here. If only I had written it.
-108 Just imagine if cats did laundry...What a wonderful world it would be!!!
And now, for your consideration, the inimitable red panda...natural gymnistists.
