The Divine Miss R



Need we say more?



And her is her side kick, Pork Chop. It does make for a funny rock band, Ramona and the Pork Chop. ( As noted by Edsel/The Pooch )

This morning he ate his breakfast and then her leftovers. He is convinced that whatever is in her bowl is better than what is in his. And he has The Belly to prove it.



The light was extraordinary yesterday morning in the sunroom. Olof also used a strobe and his Canon Digital Rebel for these shots. He says he also sometimes uses a bounced speed light. Never ever use the on camera flash except for fill flash outdoors. Me, I just point and shoot and sometimes I get lucky. I guess I should try to learn this stuff.



The kittens are a great joy and comfort. They are both very affectionate and loving. Harper is sitting on me as I write and Ramona is cuddled up close. They are learning the comforts of the family rhythms. Morning, breakfast is served downstairs. Then the beans drink hot stuff and get on the machines. Then commotion as beans get up, do that really weird thing where they get wet. Then there is the day of naptime and playtime then everyone gathers in front of that picture thing and the kitten toy collection for lap sitting and games. Then the whole pride settles down together for a long sleep until it starts again. As Brendan says, Lord, let all my days be normal.



In the end, it is all about the light, isn't it?

oh how I wish I could take wonderful pictures like Olaf. I'm glad to hear that things are settling into normalcy, and that Ramona and the Pork Chop are comforting you. Also glad to hear that Brendan is so fond of Ramona.

What a couple of sweethearts! I glad they are bring some comfort and joy into your house. I look at Ramona and Harper and then I look at the little terror Dolce has grown into. Can we trade?

Did I mention that Dolce walks into the room and starts meowing at everybody and then walks away?

Olof is very talented! The pictures are fantastic. It looks like Ramona and Pork Chop are going to have a wonderful relationship; you can just tell by looking at them. It's great that they are fulfilling their kitty duties as well by giving you much love in this time.

I am glad you are getting so much pleasure from the kittens. They look like they are going to be a brilliant team. And it is great that they have bonded with Brendan.

My wife has started calling Dolce Pork Chop. She thinks that nickname is hilarious. I told she had to find another nickname since that one belongs to Harper. She also calls her BOFby, Bum On Fire baby.
