We"re nearing the end of Ekle's days and many of her friends want to acknowledge her life in their own way.
R, a friend of our daughter has never had a dog but has grown very close to our German Shepherd, Elke. She is a barista at Starbucks and she made this special puppuchino for her.
She's a talented artist, don't you think?

By now you have all seen heart wrenching images of the devastation in the wake of Hurricane Harry on the South Texas coast. There have been many uplifting stories of rescues that are continuing as I write and, thank goodness, the rescues will continue to help those in need.
Here's a different rescue...
Take Cover! The Moment A Hawk Flew Into A Taxi And Refused To Get Out As Hurricane Harvey Barreled Towards Texas
I don't think the larger birds are as waterproof as the little ones, and this poor Cooper hawk was soaked and just found a dry place to stay until the Texas Wildlife Center picked it up.
The kind man who took care of Harry during the storm referred to him Sergeant Harry Hawk as he was taken away.

You may be sick of hearing about the eclipse, but here's my low cost solution to watching today's total eclipse without fancy schmancy glasses that may not even protect your eyes...
Total Solar Eclipse 2017: How To Make A Pinhole Projector From A Cereal Box
This is how we used to watch total solar eclipses back in the Mesozoic era ;)
Don't worry, the hysteria will be over soon.
P.S. Baily's beads are the most fascinating part of this whole thing. They get so little attention.

Another excellent piece by Clarice Feldmen of the American Thinker:
Terry And The (Antifa) Bandits Will Inherit The Wind
Thugs are thugs no matter what radical side of the political spectrum their allegiance lies in reality or to whomever pays for it.
Soros... just saying.

This is the only article I could find that opposes violence from both the left and the right.
David Horowitz: Charlottesville Is Biggest 'Fake News' Story of Summer
According to the MSM, the violence of those who back Black Lives Matter and Antifa isn't really violence, but merely a protest.
From the article by Mr. Horowitz: "The ideology that drives the left and divides our country is "identity politics" — the idea that the world consists of two groups — "people of color" who are guiltless and oppressed, and white people who are guilty and oppressors."
I'm sick of the press equating conservatives with white supremacists. We have nothing in common.
And then I found this:

The Bloody San Antonio Origins Of Chili Con Carne
OK, the line "ranging from a proto-psychedelic, hyper-Catholic, Spanish/Mexican Indian tale about a teleporting, recipe-sharing Blue Nun; to another crediting California-bound gold prospectors; to others touting the efforts of Texas prison convicts and cowboys."
That line made me laugh out loud.
Who knew chili could be that fun.

For this Cat Blog Friday...
Shoshin, you're fired!
This was Shoshin's last day as my assistant. It just wasn't working out.
Boy, was she pissed.
Happy Friday everybody... well try to be happier than Shoshin.
UPDATE: For all of you who have asked, Shoshin is completely unaffected by her recent firing. In fact, she's happy to be free of the obligation.

A slow Sunday morning with coffee, but it's been quite busy for me on the internet...
MUST WATCH VIDEO: Congressman Speaks Truth To Power Against Clinton Machine, Obama, Soros, Etc.
Will we ever get to the truth?
A high school student's art project displayed in democrat Congressman Lou Correa's office in Santa Anna... so what?
Statute Of Liberty As A Muslim? Painting In Rep. Lou Correa’s Office Sparks Complaints
I will remember this the next time anyone's artwork depicts a Christian or Judaic symbol...
Will Congressman Correa (D) display that so freely?

At first I thought this from Blunt Force Truth was really a piece from The Onion, but it's real...
Half Of Detroit’s Current Mayoral Candidates Are Felons
Reminds me of the days of Marion Barry, 4-term Mayor of D.C. I wonder whose judgement is more questionable, the candidates or the voters.

I was surprised Trump hired him in the first place...
Carr: Tough Guy? Anthony Scaramucci Was Just A Bad Actor
"Scaramouche (from Italian Scaramuccia, literally "little skirmisher"), also known as Scaramouch, is a stock clown character of the commedia dell'arte (comic theatrical arts of Italian literature). The role combined characteristics of the zanni (servant) and the Capitano (masked henchman). Usually attired in black Spanish dress and burlesquing a don, he was often beaten by Harlequin for his boasting and cowardice."
Loved the quote from Boston mafia boss Jerry Angiulo, "You think I need tough guys?” he bellowed. “I need intelligent tough guys!”
If you're in the public eye you need to not let your thoughts drop down onto your tongue and spew them out.
I'm glad he's outta dere.
Word to the wise DJT.
