Odds and Ends

I'm feeling lazy today, so here's a few pics of some things I've been up to lately.

My brother Dan and I built a deck in my backyard a couple of weeks ago...nothing too fancy, but it's better than the little slab that's been back there for years.

The finished I just need one of those big-ass umbrella/stand things to provide some shade. I sat out here the other night under the was very peaceful and relaxing. I like sitting out here, beverage in hand... fact, here are several people, beverages in hand on my deck (insert jokes here).

I also made a trip to the Zoo recently... are the new black leopards, cat-napping. One cracked his eye ever so slightly open to look at me for a split-second, then closed it. I don't like having my naps interrupted, either.

Here's another cat at the Zoo.

Here's the resident tiger, making faces at me.

I hope everyone is having a good weeknd ...I may have some more film reviews posted later, if I get ambitious enough. See you later!

Would have loved to join you guys on the new deck, man.

Wish you could've been there...but you're always welcome!

Not bad, but my deck's BIGGER, LOL !

Not a bad job at all, although I might have gone with 6x6's concreted in the ground instead of those "pre-fab" concrete foundation supports.

Nice pix of the pussies.

Nice deck.

What is that second cat? Snow leopard?

Thanks for the pix. Living far from home, I miss out on all those family home-improvement projects. Hope you have lots of fun on your new deck.

Scott said...


You're the only one who I'd admit has a bigger deck than me, LOL!


Thanks...honestly, I don't remember what the second cat is...I know it isn't a snow leopard, because it's not that big.


Thanks, glad you enjoyed the pics!

Nice deck.

Nothing like enjoying nature from the comfort of your own home.

Love the new deck. It is so nice to sit out on mine and drink my coffe early in the morning.

Scott said...


Thanks, and nice to have you drop by!


Thanks...I usually don't have time in the mornings to hang out there, but I do like to sit outside at night and have a glass of wine or a beer.

Gotta love the big cats! Decks should be a mandatory part of home ownership. May you enjoy yours for many decades to come!

Scott said...
