Alex adopted me a number of years ago. He actually belonged to the neighbor on the east side of me, yet spent hours hanging
out with his kitty friends that lived with my neighbors to the west. He traveled through my yard going back and forth between
home and friends.

At that time I had been laid off at work and was spending more time in my home office and patio area. Alex began spending more and more time on one of my Adirondack chairs, during which we had great conversations. He is very vocal and expressive. He also started to follow me into the house. He was unbelievably well mannered. I set out a water bowl for him. I was also rather allergic to him.

An allergy prescription and a year later, I set out a food bowl. I still cannot keep Alex in the house overnight (swollen yucky eyes and congestion issues). Yet he knows that he is welcome to join his kitty friends next door in a comfy kitty igloo in the kitties’ house. It’s a perfect arrangement.

We don't often get clouds in the southwest desert, so when we do the results are awesome. In an earlier post you can see a sunrise that greeted me last week. This week it was the evening sky that produced the beautiful sky for today's post.

Chat later

Again this morning.. even with the mugginess.. the sunrise was exquisite following that opaque PINK sunset last night. We certainly do have lovely rises & settings here in the desert. ~Amy
