Good Morning Beautiful

“Do you wake up as I do, having forgotten what it is that hurts or where, until you move? There is a second of consciousness that is clean again. A second that is you, without memory or experience, the animal warm and waking into a brand new world. There is the sun dissolving the dark, and light as clear as music, filling the room where you sleep and the other rooms behind your eyes.”  Jeanette Winterson

The first Robins are chirping in the dark. The rain falls. Sleepiness evaporates as the cat attacks my exposed toes. Time to rise and shine….well rise at least. To the impatient annoyance of the two cats and two dogs, who are energized at the prospect of breakfast, I stop to gather some images of the light and shadows along the stairway.


Ninnie the Cat: Caught with Fur & Feathers!!!

At an ungodly hour this morning, Emma the Dog was very persistent in trying to get me up. Emma has an internal alarm clock for morning chow that is unsettling in its accuracy. This was too early, plus Ninnie the Cat has taken to assisting Emma the Dog in getting me up for morning food by standing on my chest and turning in circles. Ninnie was no where to be seen.

Emma persisted. She must have to go outside. Ugh. Ok, I got up and sleepily wandered downstairs. A rustling sound. Emma stopped and sat. Odd. More rustling sounds. I peered around the corner into the living room where my ‘temporary’ fly tying’ station is arranged.

Whoa!!!! There was Ninnie the Cat knee deep in fur, feathers and tying thread!!! That little @#$&!

Ninnie Tugging Feathers SBThese particular materials had been strewn about yesterday afternoon when I came home from work. I could not identify the culprit at the time (Ninnie or Penny). I stuffed the materials into a bag and stuffed that bag well beneath a heavier object at the bottom of a cardboard box. Well determination and predatory instincts prevailed it appears.

Maybe Emma the Dog was snitching on Ninnie the Cat. Paybacks for her nagging habit of attacking Emma’s always wagging tail?

My son, Tony, went out with family members this past weekend to partake of the last opportunity to fish for sturgeon on the Willamette River (Oregon). All fishing for White Sturgeon in the Columbia River drainages will be indefinitely closed. 

The early morning provided some wonderful opportunity for some shots of the St. John’s Bridge on the Willamette River. And, for one of the finest tasting fish swimming….the pre-historic white sturgeon.

early morning C.I. SB

The daily excursion commenced with arising at 0400, tinkering with gear, grabbing a light bite and coffee and then, as a group moving down to the boats in the bay and venturing forth at 0600.
