In yesterday’s post, we showed Roscoe posing for photos for the blog. We also might have mentioned that Typhoon is not big on cooperating for the camera. As luck would have it, today is his day to be the model and he performed just as you would expect a Little Prince to perform.

Look away from the camera and refuse to cooperate.

Typhoon is quite certain that his role is not to obey—ever—and would prefer if humans would just recognize his superiority. Can’t you imagine how much easier his life would be if that happened?

Welcome to the no ham zone.

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
