This is Yoku - our replacement.

We are keeping Yoku and Yoda separated until Yoku gets bigger.

Hey... are you looking at ME?

You are no one until you've been ignored by the YODA.

Our new kitty - KIMBA

Kimba with his beautiful blue eyes.

Kimba gets along very well with Snickers and Tripod.

Tripod looking at Kimba's photo shoot.

Kimba is part grey tabby and part Siamese.  He is very talkative and EXTREMELY friendly!

He makes himself right at home on our bed.

Kimba has the sweetest face!

Snickers taking it all in...

"Kimba, well... he's still alive only because he still has his claws!"
Our remodeled foyer

This wall now covers what used to be a large opening into the Formal Living Room (which is now Cathy's office).

NEW photo of the foyer from above.

OLD photo of foyer from above - you can see the entrance to the Formal Living Room on the right.  Also you can see the old chandelier.

New chandelier in the foyer.  All other light fixtures match  (upper hallway, power room, and dinning room chandelier are from the same suite of lamps).
Our Bearded Dragons

Yoda in the back,
Yoshi in the front.  Yoda is hugging Yoshi on their first day together - or do you think he is trying to push him off the edge...???


I'm on the prowl for some yummy crickets.  They can't see me in my lookout tree trunk.

Well, I thought I'd just push some sand around in here and maybe rearrange some trees...

Oooo, ooo, teacher?... ah... over here... hey you, teacher... can i please go to the bathroom...?


... and then there was light...

This is Yoda going right.

and Yoda going left...

Hard to see, but Yoshi is waving to you - he is on the right.

Yoshi climbing the tree to get a better veiw of the crickets.

You are NOBODY until you've been ignored by a Bearded Dragon...

Yoda last November hanging on to his food dish.
