Here’s Swampy

DP Photo Challenge: Friend

Here is my favorite furry feline friend.  Swampy will be celebrating his second birthday in a couple of weeks.

In case you forgot, here is a shot of him the day we fished him out of the swamp (July 2015).  My boy has grown, I am so proud.

Tuesday’s Excitement

DP Photo Challenge: Evanescent

How much difference a few hours make.  These two photos below were taken this past Tuesday afternoon.  It was an exciting day in Tabby’s backyard.

Yes, it was officially a tornado rolling over Fort Pulaski and down the Savannah River.  This picture was taken from the back porch….a little closer and I would have been cowering in the laundry room.  But no damage for us, the fort wasn’t so lucky.

At dusk there was a break in the action and the birds took advantage of the feeder.  I spotted a male painted bunting, one of my favorites.  This photo was taken in the back yard.

Evanescent events, both of them.

Remembering

DP Challenge: Heritage

Here two photos of a tombstone (front and back) in Fort Pulaski, Georgia.  Part of our heritage as Americans.

Wars are part of our history.  Civil wars are perhaps the most difficult to understand, since it is a fight among county men.  Sometimes I hear folks trying to adjust history to make it more palatable.  In all its beauty and in all its ugliness, our heritage should be remembered as it happened.  Perhaps if we remember, we will not make the same mistakes.

Remembering our heritage is important.

Careful of the CannonBalls

Daily Post Photo Challenge: Danger

DSC_0116 (2)

Here is a shot of Fort Pulaski in Georgia.  This is the side of the fort that sustained the heaviest cannon fire from the Union Troops.  This damage was ultimately the reason that the fort surrendered during the Civil War.  For me not having experienced war, it is hard to imagine the “danger” that soldiers on both sides experience.  But seeing the pockmarks in a brick structure, makes it more real.

Anyone visiting the Savannah area, Fort Pulaski is truly a worthy side trip.  I hope you can come and see us.

Que Sera TybeeTabby

DSC_0093 (2)

My sweet Que DeCat died this morning after nineteen years of life.  I adopted her when she was almost two along with her paramour, Clyde.  Que was grumpy and skittish, but she was my beautiful baby girl kitty.  You all may recognize her as TybeeTabby.  So sleep well Que and enjoy romping with Clyde on the other side.
