Feline Acting Strangely

Online till 2 am this morning, when I got into bed at about 2:25 and turned off the lights, instead of curling up in her little bed near the bedroom closet, Domino jumped up onto the bed, parked herself next to my head and purred loudly. She licked my arm, head-butted it, and then pushed her face into my beard. I petted her, and for a bit she licked my hand and rubbed her face against the spot, but then she did something she had only ever done once before - jumped up on my chest, and laid down facing away from me, still purring loudly. She stayed there for about 5 minutes, then got back onto the bed and purred and butted some more. Scared me, made me think she thought I was sick. I went downstairs to check on Pumpkin, but aside from being curled up asleep behind the recliner instead of on it, he was fine.

Went back to bed, Domino went to her bed and all was normal from then on.

Simple Sunday

With the late late bedtime came much sleeping in. Got up and out in time to be at the Los Altos History Museum at noon, took a handful of nondescript pictures of the several model train setups they had out on the grounds, took a quick walk through the museum itself (loved the quilt exhibit) got my ticket punched at all the train stations and entered the raffle.

That took about an hour, which was just right to get to Shoup Park to play in the Ye Olde Towne Band concert. Nice weather, the trees which we play under finally have all their leaves so the sun was not a problem. A little breezy but that's why God invented clothes pins - to keep our music from flying off the stands.

Home to drop off my horn and change out of my concert clothes, and then off to Sunnyvale for dinner and a DVD exchange with a theater friend. Home again, finished watching a Tivoed program, and here I am.
