Esther Loves Steve

Sometime yesterday afternoon, Esther decided to join me in the recliner. She asked permission (as always) and she was careful with her claws (as she usually is). Late in the evening, as I sat reading in the chair, Esther stayed with me. Still later, when I drifted off to sleep and then awoke, Esther was on my lap. Even later, around 3:00 AM, I had to get up, and finally Esther departed the chair. Today when I sat to watch a bit of classic TV, Esther again graced me with her presence.

This behavior isn't unheard of, but it's been quite a while since Esther loved me so enthusiastically. I guess an old love renewed is the best love.

  1. Steve,
    You have changed a lot!!
    Your hair is less salt and black pepper than mine and I do not have a white beard

    1. Enfant, my signature picture was taken about 30 years ago, while I was tuning a harpsichord before a music job at MFAH... it would be more surprising if I hadn't changed! :-) On the other hand, it would be surprising if you really did have a full white beard... :-)

  2. Both of you cats look charming.
