In which comfort becomes the priority

Crane 83. This is a student made Huck Finn raft. It has been left behind from someone’s presentation in a literature class. The bird sitting on it was made from a Pride and Prejudice calendar. I’m not sure what Elizabeth Bennet is doing hanging out with Huck, but there you go. Cranes 81-82. This is […]

I don’t think so, said the little dog to the sullen cat

My dog challenge prompt and my regular photo challenge prompt were essentially the same today: “in a box” and “box.” I tried to make Lucy Peanut sit in a hat box while I took her picture, but she refused to do it. She said bad words to me. Stella Calico could not bring herself to […]

Portrait of Innocence

Crane 75 of 1000 for 2016. Lucy Peanut says, “What paper crane? I haven’t seen any paper crane. Good luck finding your missing crane.” Cranes 76-77.

All hail the power of peer pressure

Lucy Peanut is tuckered out, and I can’t say I blame her. She burrowed into a blanket on the couch to take a nap this evening, and I tried to get her up to play so that I could take a more active picture of her, but she just kept going right back to her […]

In which habit is who you are

Jack Cat says “oh no you didn’t” to Lucy Peanut. That’s his usual line for her. If you’ve been paying attention, you might have noticed that I’ve fallen behind on Lucy Peanut pictures while I’ve posted more Alice and paper crane pictures lately. I decided to make up for that today. Here are a few […]

In which we all suffer for the art

Today’s dog photo challenge was “all dressed up,” and Lucy Peanut had to endure grave insult because of it. She was not impressed with her new outfit. I had been saving this sweater for excessively cold weather, but after having to model it today, Lucy Peanut informs me that the weather will never be cold […]

Don’t be sad, sad kitty

Stella Calico was stuck inside today, watching Jack Cat and Lucy Peanut play outside. Stella is a shy and skittish kitty and does not go outside, but sometimes she sits in the window looking sad to be left home alone. To which Lucy Peanut replies… I don’t have anything to add to that. Lucy P […]

A walk in the park

Lucy Peanut and I went to the park today, and she heard another dog bark (one that was inside a fence and just saying hello) and made herself bigger by hopping up on the nearest available bench. Alice, the little mannequin, was already there, and I intended to photograph her. I had to move Alice […]

Grant me the confidence

I’ve often been amused by the quote that makes its way around social media from time to time: “Lord grant me the confidence of a mediocre white man.” Because yes. I’ve met those guys. And no. Not all white guys are like that, mediocre or otherwise, but it is a joke, so it’s okay to […]
