Signs of life slowly turning from green to red, brown and orange. Also, Sisto and Harold, admiring the neighbor’s boneyard halloween decor.
#bogsafari critter counts today was pretty plentiful. Three bluejays, two cardinals, a few earbuzzing skeeters, a half dozen squirrels, a new cow kitty, a couple of wrens, a fair assortment of little peepy birds, and Panda the Jaywalking cat, crossing against the 4 way stop on the corner. I would prefer she stay camped out by the squirrel cam and hunt there over risking a car splat.
Weather is cooling again, mid 60s°F very humid, as it was misting, the rain had just stopped. Walking in the swamp was muddier than usual- my walking stick stabbed down an extra inch or so in the wetter areas.( I try to keep to harder packed ground.)
Took a longer route than usual, and was rewarded with the cow cat, about a third of a mile north, and she looked a lot like another neighborhood kitty from times past, Zorro. Maybe call her Zorrita?
Probably overextended myself today, back is giving me back now. A little heating pad or ice pack might fix that up tonight.
Saw a new cat, I think it may be a descendant of Zorro and Dirty White Cat (as sung by Foreigner). Seems to be the right-ish markings and she makes a lovely loaf.
Zorro was a white cat with a black “mask” and “cape”, DWC was a mostly white with a small collection of black “oil stains” scattered on the back and knees. So I guess a masked and a cow cat? Not shown, I also saw Panda cat today.
I don’t know her name… maybe one I can call her will pop into my head before I see her again?
Prior to yesterday’s buzz cut and beard trim I was starting to feel a bit like Bela Lugosi in Island of Lost Souls (1932)
Post cut and trim, I feel more like a GI Joe with the fuzzy hair and beard, and considerably less shaggy.
Fun Scotto universal monster fact- I was born the approximate time Boris Karloff died. (Year, month, day and hour) [I know island of lost sould is Parsmount, not Universal]
He made it to 81 years old, and left behind a body of work that will maybe be remembered as long as humanity exists. I will be lucky to make it to 81, but the internet being what it is, I, too, will be stored in a memory somewhere for a similar length of time, even if my particular signal won’t shine out so brightly amongst all the other data noise.
