On another note...  

...here are some pics of water in the area and my cats.

I've been jonesin' for water-proximity so I went to see if people were allowed to get anywhere near the Encino Reservoir.

No, they're not.

Here's about the only shot I could get without crawling into someone's multi-million-dollar back yard.

Martin was aware of my longing for water-proximity so we went to Lake Balboa the next evening and watched the sunset.

We did notice that there was an area where it seemed fish were constantly surfacing, though. The plan?? To buy some bait, and toss bits of it in, so that we can see the fish better. Hey, there's no fishing without a license, and there's no feeding of the birds, but no one says you can't feed the fish.

This is my cat Max. He photographs poorly as he is a light-sink. I keep taking pics of him, though, because he is shiny and foofy and beautiful.

This is Hunley. He is also foofy and beautiful.

This is Skate, who proves you don't have to be foofy to be beautiful.

And to those who don't visit here much, yes, I always show pictures of my cats, and yes, I realize it is a bad net-habit. I don't have kids. Look at my cats.

I think I can solemnly promise you that as long as I have cats and a digital camera, I will show them off on LJ.

When Max lays in the sun does he get shiny rainbow colors all over him? I used to love when that would happen to Domi, my old tuxedo cat.

I love how Hunley has such a unique color pattern to him. Looks like he has a tabby face with a siamese body?

Skate's pose there is great, with his back feet sticking straight out like that. :)

Well, yeah, but only because we have a prism in the window ^_^

Hunley was an outdoor cat, descended from a Himalayan line and Genericats, so he's probably a tabby/himi or something.

Skate sleeps in many cute poses ^_^

Hey, you never post your cats!

I know, it has been quite a while. I think the last pics I posted, Logan was still tiny sized and recovering from his URI.. my router and home PC haven't been playing nice the last couple days, but if I can get it all sorted out I'll try to do another picture post. :)

I need to do a Vegas post too...

That is a wonderful picture! And regarding one of the comments made below, I've always thought babies were ugly. There are very few ugly cats.

I read an article the other day that said that parents were actually LESS happy than people without kids, too. And pets help you live longer. So having cats is vastly preferable than having kids. Martin and I got it MADE!

I don't see anything wrong with people showing pictures of their cats.

I mentally equate it with people showing pictures of their kids. You say "yeah, very cute, how wonderful" while thinking "let's get on with it..."

Granted cats are WAY cuter than kids ^_~

What was that bottom one? Grand Moff Tarkin as an infant?

An entrant in an ugly baby contest. How do you explain that to the kid later when they're older??

Water good. Ocean good. (We went down to hollywood-by-the-sea in Oxnard last sunday, and wished we coulda invited youall..)

You can't get near the water at either of those?

We should just all troop down to Hansen Dam, and show the rest of the valley water sites what they can do with their no swimming/no getting near the water rules.
