Late evening is my favorite time to spend with the horses. Some days, even when the world has been drowned with rain all day, the evening is dry and the sky puts on a show for us.

The rain gave Juniper a nice textured hairstyle.

We went on a pretty fun hike the other day and found a trail connection I didn't know about. Actually maybe it was just a game trail. But it worked. Winston and Blue posed nicely for a picture at a snack break.

 Huckleberry is a free agent and does not pose for pictures. He's getting old. He still jumps over logs but he shouldn't. He hurts himself a little. He has a bad back, poor guy.

 Have you ever felt the fresh new needles of a tamarack (larch) tree? If you haven't, you should. So deliciously soft.

I have a new friend at work. He's a smelly cat. He is so tenderly sweet. He pats gently with his paws and gives kisses. Eww, I know. I am so not a cat person, but this one is special. I'd bring him home if I could but I don't think the dogs would allow it.

My father in law is in the cardiac intensive care unit and hooked up to so much stuff you wouldn't believe it. He doesn't want visitors until some of the tubes come out and he's able to talk. I'm not sure when that will be. They expect him to be in the hospital for 2-3 weeks. I worry. But now that he's conscious I feel a little better about it. He has congestive heart failure and fluid built up too much.

My niece is getting married in 2 days! I need to get off my bum and get to work. Last minute things to do.

What a sweet kitty! Is it old? Sometimes they get smelly when they're old. I have an old smelly kitty and he's the sweetest cat.

Sorry to hear about your relative. Hopefully he feels better soon.

He's not old, he was just sick when the clinic adopted him. Now that he's feeling better he's grooming himself but he's still kinda stinky.

My father in law is doing a lot better now but I think he's got a long road ahead. He isn't used to being told no about unhealthy foods. This is going to be tough.
