This is another view of a lovely little stray cat in France. She just sat in the sun as all cats do. I am back home with my own dogs now after 8 days of "boxer-sitting". I miss having a 10 pound head resting on my foot. Here in Vancouver we are finally having the heat of the summer during the days, combined now with the unmistakable coolness of fall at night. My thoughts are with Carol Marine (Daily Paintworks) and her family whose home was in the path of those terrible fires in Texas. Every day - be grateful.
