First glimpse of some Scotland photos...
I've been feeling as down and helpless and, frankly, ashamed, about the folks down in New Orleans as everybody else. But one small thing has cheered me up a bit. I realized I still hadn't downloaded one of the flash cards of photos that I took in Scotland, and it was the one where I had photos of red deer and such... and I came across this! (Now, I know it looks as if it were taken "in the wild", and they really are practicing for competing over females, but this was actually on a large farm for raising red deer. Talk about doing a doubletake... I was driving along and suddenly saw these beautiful deer and had to turn around and take advantage of the opportunity. *G*)



I'll be off at a wedding part of this weekend. BTW, I'm going to put a calendar up on my info page fairly soon, listing when folks are coming down for the exhibition - thought that might be helpful.

Really? That's cool! I'm afraid I don't recall seeing any wild ones. I didn't get up to Cairngorm (I think that's the name of the park); I'd love to spend a week just there!

*G* Now, where is that cute cat in the icon from?

Yep, more glimpses to come. And, do you know, I don't think I ever went through all of my non-Moot England pics! *mortified*

Looks like my one cat is not feeling well this morning, so I'm off to the vet, and not going to the wedding. Don't feel badly for me, though... to be honest, it's such a beautiful weekend, that I'll be happy staying at home - plus I know I'll be spending a lot of time at work this holiday weekend (trying to impress the boss), so squeezing in the wedding would have killed any time I would have had to relax. As to my cat - I'm hoping he's just perhaps a bit dehydrated, since my vet sounds rather busy... they're open 4 hours on Saturday, but it's just her and one assistant.

I hope your kitty is okay. {cross fingers, warm Smile}

But... {bite lips} One cat? Didn't you have two? Or am I misinterpreting "one" there? {smile}

Ah, if you'd only seen the ones I missed as I was finding a place to park! *L*! They were on their hind legs - amazing! And I love the look of antlers that are still in velvet.

{GRIN} Thought so! Either that, or they like people as much as zoo peacocks do. {chuckle, BIG SMILE}

By the way... may I befriend you? I think that's really the best description of what happens when people land on my friends-list. {SMILE} Book-marked journals (an alternative, if you'd prefer) tend to get a bit more distance. {Smile}
