Yet another Siamese cat

I thought I had another, far cuter shot, but I was so shocked I got close enough to take it that I muffed it. Such is life!

* * *

Most evenings, I hear a "Miao miao maio miao miao" floating up from the soi, over and over again; an old lady imitating and/or calling her cat: แมว (maaeo) means "cat" in Thai, conveniently enough.

On the night I got back from my tooth extraction, I was walking out to buy more gauze when I passed her looking under the cars and calling, and for no reason at all looked left, and there the or at least a cat was placidly sitting on a doorstep, looking like butter wouldn't melt in its mouth. So I silently pointed -- my jaw being clenched to hold the gauze in place -- and she was happy, and I was happy. The cat, I presume, was if not happy at least soon fed. That cat was grey, of course, since it was night time, so I can't be sure that cat was this cat, even if both cats did share strategies for concealment and the frustration of humans.

There are never enough cute pictures of cats!

I'm stuck on the rules for generating tones from the letter combinations. (However, I haven't concentrated on that this time.)

And right now it's burning through it, and at a time when winter really ought to be ending!

So what Yves says is exactly right: "winters are long and cold in Maine and fuel bills are high." It's the house in the winter that's killing me.
