My wonderful brother and sister-in law are allowing me to borrow their macro lens.  Fun!!!!  I still am trying to get the hang of the thing and need to find my tripod but I have taken a bunch of pics.  There are quite a few that are far from great but I like them anyway!!! I really do need to try to take pictures somewhere other than my backyard!! Okay, bear with me, I know they are not great but heck, practice makes better!

Not identical

Charkie and Lily are so identical in looks but completely different in their personalities.  Charkie is inquisitive, active, independent and laid back.  Lily needs all to stay the same, lazy, needy and a nervous nelly.  Both of them love to go outside in the backyard.  We have been very lucky that they do not go past the patio.   Charkie has ventured a little further but this has been Lily’s year to assert herself but the camera is a little too much for Lily to deal with.

Chillin’ Charkie:

Mikey has decided he likes his little sister.  She has brought excitement back into his day.  Chewing sticks, digging holes and napping are much better with a buddy.

Small Steps

The kitties are having a difficult time adjusting to Maisie.   It has been two weeks today and Lily finally came upstairs for more than one minute before running back to the basement if she even suspects the monstrosity may be near.  She actually slept on the couch.  Curiousity has driven Charkie to hang out a little longer each day.  They can now cross paths within a foot of each other and there are no exploding cat tails.  Hopefully each day will lessen the kitties fears and their life upstairs can be returned to normal.  I miss them!!!!
