Bits and pieces:

Tuesday morning I was heading to work via an unusual route for me, north on I-15 - the view of the mountains, covered to a low elevation in snow was breathtaking.

Last night as I was backing into the driveway, there was a red, somewhat longhaired cat hanging around my wife's truck. I know, intellectually, that it couldn't be our longlost cat, Natalia, but hope sprang up anyway. Turned out to be a tom, instead, but damned if he didn't come when encouraged, and deigned to be scratched at all the right points. I pulled out my iPhone and called forestcats outside, just in case, and she, too, was honored with permission to pet this cat. However, I don't expect him to get into the house; the dog door is reasonably well sealed away from the average invader.

This morning, early, we had a delivery. We now have a pedestal for the washing machine, as well as the dryer, which gives us significantly more storage space in the laundry room. This is a GOOD THING. We are pleased, yes we are.

I don't get much in the way of mail. Usually, I have to generate it myself, by ordering via Amazon, or from Powells.com, or such-like. So I was surprised at the arrival last night of an Amazon package when I hadn't ordered anything. What was it, but a book, obviously purchased off my Amazon Wish List by sekl. I'm flabbergasted and delighted. Many thanks!

Just name the kitty. That is pretty much the end of the cat not officially belonging to you. I have learned that the hard way.

Had the critter licked me, that would have been the end of the discussion...

desertstarlight always used to use food names for red cats. If you wish to keep up this charming tradition, go, perhaps, with Ginger, Cinnamon or Nutmeg.
