Willy Nilly Friday Five & Feline Art - January 15, 2016

Happy Friday!

It's time for some random fun with WILLY-NILLY FRIDAY FIVE hosted by Tanya (Around Roanoke).



1.  Something funny (at least I thought it was) that my friend sent me.


2. 
We drove up to Bennington Lake last week and I snapped a couple of shots of the surrounding farm land and the Blue Mountains.  These are my favorite shots from the drive up there.
 


3.  Signs of spring already?.....


Robins! - Photo also taken at Bennington Lake.
 
 
4. I ordered a new CD the other day The Traveling Kind by Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell.  Thought you might enjoy a selection off the album.
 
 
5.  I haven't done any cat art for FELINE ART  here in a while so how about this one of Pepper lounging in the laundry basket:
 
 
She is a really hard cat to photograph.  Her jet black fur and those odd golden colored eyes make it difficult to get a picture of her face.  Thank goodness she has that little white streak on her nose.

Well that's it for me today.  - Nothing real exciting going on around here, just day to day stuff but that's okay as I'd rather have it calm then chaotic.

  7. Robins-how wonderful! Skittles is hard to photograph too since her face has black and brown and orange-no white on her face. But I still make the effort anyway.

  12. Ginger is a lovely looking cat. I have the same issue with my dog. He's jet black and has a tendency to come out as a smudge in photographs. Maybe we could hire him and Ginger out to people who want a difficult subject to test their cameras on ... It looks very wintery in your part of the world. Wishing you a nice warm fire in the hearth to sit beside. All the best, Bonny

  16. Cute cartoon! I am ready for spring and we really haven't had winter. I like the cat art, and will listen to Emmy Lou some other time...watching TV right now.

  17. Beautiful photographs! I think cats, and probably all animals, are just hard to photograph. The minute mine sees me zooming in on him, he feels the need to get up and come to me.

    Definitely no robins in sight up here. We just got LOTS of snow. It will be several months yet.

  21. Oh, my gosh, Ida, what a treasure I found here today. That funny made me laugh out loud. I didn't know what was coming, but it's hilarious! Your scenery photos are unbelievably stunning and I love your artistic rendering of the cat photo. I could see that being a focal piece on the wall in a beautifully decorated room.
