Just in case you feared I had become anything resembling hip…

…No, it shall never be.  And to prove it, just in time for the Fourth of July weekend, several minutes of pointless video that might only be of interest to a small subset of my friends and relatives*:


“This is not how I am” indeed, Simon – get yer paws off of the coffee table.

Happy holiday weekend, at least to the US folks who are looking forward to beer and barbecue tomorrow.

*And of that small subset, there’s probably an even smaller subset consisting of John and my mom who will actually be amused by this video.

    It’s not just John and your mom. I’ve been calling Drew every evening to get a live play-by-play of Duncan’s doings.

  2. Pointless, you say? Nay. . . never. Peace in the Urban Valley. . . and the cats lie down with the squirrels, if only because glass separates them. It was a lovely sojourn. Thank you.

  3. Very nice! Shiva is not as interested in the squirrels as he is the mourning doves. Spirit can’t see them anymore, but she doesn’t seem to mind.

  5. It’s Dar Williams, with Ani DiFranco – and yes, I know. Unlikely but wonderful.

  6. I love the squirrel moment! I need to video my pup Zeus watching the chipmunks. He is perfectly fine watching the birds at the bird feeder, as soon as the chipmunk appears he goes crazy…

  7. There’s something a little Loch Ness monster about Dash’s pose while he’s looking out the sliding door.
