Dogs and Cats

Just a quick post tonight. Here are some pictures of dogs and cats.

Great Dane, Large Dog, Buenos Aires, ArgentinaLook at the size of this Great Dane. This was from a long ago trip to Argentina.

Guard and Dogs - Simon the Stylites the younger - Monastery - Closed Archaeology site - TurkeyHere is another memory. These two dogs belong to a man who was guarding an archaeological site in Turkey that we were trying to visit. Unfortunately, we did not get to see what we were there for.

Pat, Long Hair Chihuahua, Family Dog, National Dog DayHere is my childhood friend Pat. She was such a good dog.

Kedma Village, White Cat, Israel, Two Color of EyesNow on to a few cats. This cat was a resident of Kedma Village which is where I stayed during my first archaeological dig in Israel.

What do you notice about this cat?

Cat - Feline - Cat Eyes - Tarragon the Cat - KittyHere is my friend Tarragon. I always enjoy visiting my friends at the orchard as I get to see my favorite cat. Tarragon will follow me around while I take pictures.

dog with cats, Pat, My dog, National Dog DayOK, one more picture that includes both dogs and cats.

Here is Pat with some of the cats that we had when we lived in Ashland, Kansas.

I am now trying to remember the names of the cats. The only one I can remember is Midnight which was the black cat.

Now for some sleep.


Packing for Florida

Tonight I am packing for a trip to Florida.

Clifford the Big Red Suitecase, Packing Formula, How to Pack a SuitcaseThe Packing Formula has been solved and Clifford is currently almost packed. I am only going to be gone for five nights, so Clifford won’t be quite as heavy this trip. It means I can pack a few extra books 🙂

Washer, Laundry, Trip Prep, DryerI am just waiting for the last load of laundry to get through the washer and dryer and then I can finish packing.

Palomilla a la Plancha, Cuban Cuisine, Versailles, Plantains, Beans and RiceThe last time I went to Florida it was to Miami. While there I had a nice Cuban dinner. See: Dinner and Sunset in Miami

I am also remembering another post I wrote then. It was titled Internet MIA. I thought the title was clever as I was staying at a hotel by the airport and the internet was pretty much missing in action. Of course the airport code for Miama International is MIA. However, it is one of my least viewed posts. Probably because I only used one picture since the internet service was so horrible.

Jerusalem Walls, Ramparts WalkThis time I will be in a different part of Florida. I will be teaching for two days in a small city north of Tampa. Then on the weekend I will go to Temple Terrace and stay with my friend Luke and his family.

Dwarves, Hobbit, Archaeological Dig, Dig Team, Square SupervisorThis is bringing back good memories of my trips to Isreal with Luke the last two years and another one that is coming up in June. This year I will not be At the Dig, but will be just on a tour of the country along with a handful of friends.

I am also thinking of the last time I was in Tampa. It was about 25 years ago and was just an overnight trip to visit a cheese factory and fix a packaging machine.

Now to finish packing and get some sleep for the long trip tomorrow.
