I was born in 1962; you do the math. (See also: I'm too lazy to remember to update this thing regularly.) I bought my first house in the summer of 2009; I share it three cats and with the memories of The Runt and Little Girl, who both passed away in 2011. Rocky, the cat for whom this blog was named, passed away in 2008; I miss them all. I wish I lived somewhere where the winters weren't eight months long; other than that, life is good.
You know how all those foster cat bloggers get tons of great action shots of their kitties? Ones that show every little whisker as the kittens leap into the air after toys? (Robyn, I'm looking at YOU.) Yeah, here's what happens when I try that:
Let's see, that would be black blur in the lower left, gray blur, and Delilah, looking blurrily away from the camera.
I've tried the action setting on my camera, which generally works great for motion shots, but I just ... can't ... get the pic.
Gray blur and Delilah, almost in focus:
Gray blur again ... oh, heck, you get the blurry picture. I'm starting to feel a little seasick, myself.
You know when's the ONE time that the cats stop moving for TWO SECONDS so I can get a non-blurry picture?
