Sunset in the West, Storms at the Back

Terlingua Sunset in the west and a sizeable sunset reflection against the storm clouds behind us to the east of our house.

 You ever had one of those days when you just can't get cool enough. Well, apparently Cow is having one of those days today. He decided that parked in front of the fan with his butt available to the prevailing fan winds was the best sleeping position for him. Not necessarily advantageous for the rest of us.

I call him Cow because when we adopted him and his brother we thought they were sisters. We named them Sheba and Chere. Imagine our surprise when we noticed them preening and grooming items we thought they didn't have. Where did they pick up those things? I don't remember ordering that.

So...I nicknamed him Cow because it sounds a lot better than Steamshovel due to his ability to seemingly unhinge his lower jaw and scoop up a nice chunk of the food dish. His brother is nicknamed Precious Moments because he resembles Barbra Streisand when ever he does something naughty but looks innocent. Sort of like those porcelain works of art you see on people's shelves collecting dust called Precious Moments.
