Interlude with Moon and Dragonfly

For all none of you who may be wondering, Domino's doing much better than he was, so hopefully it was all (or mostly) down to an infection after all.

The pictures were taken yesterday, when we decided to drive to a scenic location in order to (attempt to) photograph the "super moon" by Mount Rainier. (And, yes, I am aware that a dragonfly is neither a moon nor a mountain, but that doesn't make it any less photogenic.)

Open Letter to a Lousy Summer

To Whom or What it May Concern:

First, you took Orion. Next, you tried to kill our well. Now, my last cat may be on his way out, if the pills he got today don't turn his condition around.

You have also injured people at work and sabotaged at least one potential job for a desperately unemployed relative.

Seriously, Summer, back the $%#! off.


(PS - Grudgingly, I must admire this year's butterfly collection: a superior display after a few scant years. However, if the price of butterflies is two dead cats and a screwed-up well, I'll happily haul my own water.)
