Eli Doesn’t Pose


Many have wondered why Eli, King Kitten, is not in the Farmily calendar. It’s because he doesn’t deign to be. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been out and about with Eli and see him in exquisite light, or against a beautiful and unusual backdrop, and turn to get my camera, and by the time I turn back to Eli – sometimes a mere split-second later – he has vanished. EVERY TIME.

The only photos I have of Eli from the past two years are of him sleeping. Sleeping in a basket. Sleeping on a log. Sleeping next to Rue. Half-sleeping in my chair. And these sneaky sleeping snapshots are always done with my little pocket camera in poor light, and just aren’t good enough to enlarge for a calendar.


Speaking of… calendars are en route, flying to everyone who has ordered, as of Monday morning. I only have about 50 of each calendar left, so if you want one, order soon – it’s a limited edition press run this year, and when they’re gone, they’re gone. You’ve been warned!

Calendars Are Coming!


I got the proofs yesterday and they are AMAZING. Everything about the calendars is different this year – they’re bigger and better, and the paper and print quality is absolutely luscious. And I’m printing a Farmily calendar, too! Details and ordering info coming soon……

Happiness Is… Chickens With A Watermelon

Thanks for all the telepathic and virtual hugs over the last weeks.
My heart is with those who shared their own losses. It’s the hardest thing.

Chickens help.
Give chickens a watermelon, and they will give you smiles.

The four black and whites were baby chicks this spring – they’ve grown up!
I’ve named them Imogen, Francesca, Diane, and Sally after four of my favorite B&W photographers.

Snake, handsome devil, also enjoyed the watermelon.
You can see his foot is much improved.

All gobbled up.

T.R. cooling his heels on a hot day.

You can barely see Sir Baby lying behind a sagebrush
