Normally, our view is all the way across Silver City, and Old Mexico 85 miles away! Actually, this photo was taken after a complete white out on Saturday; as we would not have seen the newer house that is down the ridge.
Loyal had to dig out this 4’ berm before he could back the Van out to go to the Pharmacy. He made it down the mountain; alas, only to have to park at a neighbors down below ~ could not get back to our house on the ridge. Where is a 4-wheel drive when you need one?
Finally retrieved the Van and car around 1 o’clock PM on 1/1/11
There may be snow outside, but the lap leopard is leaping about in a frenzy playing with her toys. She can now leap from the woven trunk to the bed, that is about four and a half feet! And she is still a baby!
Pippa is active in the AM when I get up at 6:30 or 7:30 AM; and quiet all night in her pen. Then she plays in the evening again from about 5 PM to 8 PM and goes to her pen about 10 PM. In between she sleeps, eats, does her daily cleaning up and goes to her box.
Pippa loves Jane’s Roly Poly gags. Especially the cabone ring and the handles. They began all lined up and in 45 minutes she had them all scattered and was leaping from bag to bag, attacking with vigor. She is so funny! Of course, we are also teaching her manners. She has toys, and she can play with things I give her. Pippa does listen and has learned her name and “no”! She gets tough/tender love.
Yes, I’m tatting. I’m using Ladyshutlemaker’s hdt. “chalk” and a pattern from the newer Judt book. The pattern is called “Last of the Summer Sun” and, I think, the hdt is perfect; but, we shall see when it is finished.
