Red Fox

A Red Fox- hand carved, hand painted then fur is painstakingly applied. This is an understatement :) He has a thick lush coat. Features toes with nails, paw pads and life like eyes. 
 He is for sale on Ebay until this Sunday Nov. 2nd.

My vacation

That's right, it's Kilmouski! A more gorgeous sweet cat I've never met :) 
He is also incredibly smart and so much fun!

I'll start off by saying I haven't been away anywhere since 1978. A trip was long overdue, and I can't think of a better vacation than going to visit dear friend and fellow blogger Catherine.  Wow it was almost a 12 hour drive! But I was just fine because I took a box full of my favorite music and just jammed the whole way! It was actually fun, grueling but fun.

The trip to Repair Days at the National Ornamental Metals Museum was very interesting. 

We got to watch molten iron poured into molds. Here is a picture:

Not a bad pic for a crummy little cell phone. I had forgotten my good camera that day, oh well...

Catherine seems to have picked up a hitch-hiker haha!

The neighborhood where she lives is situated around a beautiful private lake. I took these pictures:

Same shot zoomed in:

It was a very nice trip. Thank you to Catherine and Kilmouski for the wonderful hospitality :)

And then another 12 hours back home...
