Summer is over (hopefully)

Enjoying the first day of open windows in the desert. The best part of this shot is that there are nineteen windows in this house that were open and seventeen of them have better views than this one. I have no clue why they would choose to stare at the block wall out this one as opposed to checking out the many birds, butterflies and swaying trees and plants out of pretty much any other one.

Of course, as soon as they heard the shutter on my camera they had to jump down and come over to greet me. At least the Antagonizer was polite enough to pause long enough for me to take her picture.

Also, it should be noted that the little one (who still remains unnamed) managed to get his tail caught in the string of one of the blinds later on. We heard an unholy yowling and I ran into the dining room to find him dangling by his tail about six inches above the floor. I snagged him up and untied him and he didn't struggle or try to bite me while I did so. We had tried numerous times throughout the day to get him to quit messing with the strings. Since he has not touched them since, I guess a lesson was learned that could be learned no other way.
