The Elusiveness of Me

I did a great job of avoiding the camera today.





Today's ornaments: The clear glass one was given to the lady by her brother in the 80's (she thinks; she now wishes she had written the dates on the boxes). The photo doesn't do it justice. It is very fragile and thin glass that looks like one of those bubbles kids blow from the little hand-held plastic ring and soap.



The second ornament is one given to the lady by her friend Julie. That funny looking cat is wearing high heels. The ornament was designed by Patience Brewster who is known for her whimsical designs.

TW loves these ornament pictures, specially that glassy one. She can imagine how soap-bubble like it must be in real life! Me, I'm more interested in how you avoid the Human. I find that mine sneaks up on me when I am in a comfy bed alllllllmost aseeping, and she takes my picture when I am too sleepies to resist. It dirty pool, I tell you. Off wif her head! Or something.

I love the bubble ornament. It looks like it would be scary to handle. Love the musings of Mr. Black. I loved my black cat.
