Basil in the Garden

Well, it has been a few weeks since I've posted something. Not much has been going on with motorcycles so I figured I'd post up a few pictures of our cat Basil.

He was hiding out among the shrubbery in our backyard one summer day and Troubadour snapped a few pictures of him hiding amidst the foliage.

And when he has had enough of picture taking and wants to go back to sleep he looks like this ......

Most of the leaves have fallen off our trees and shrubs so when he goes outside he wanders off into the forest behind the house where he can hide among the evergreens out of the rain. Before long it will be spring and he will once again be looking for a cool spot to snooze in the yard.

-Au Revoir

"If the pull of the outside world is strong, there is also a pull towards the human. The cat may disappear on its own errands, but sooner or later, it returns once again for a little while, to greet us with its own type of love." ~ Lloyd Alexander

    When I first read your header I immediately thought of "Basil" from Faulty Towers. Basil is okay but I really Love "Cilantro"

  2. We think of Faulty Towers too when we call him by name, often with a British accent. We pronounce it Basil with a soft 'a' (Baa sil) not with a hard 'A' like most American's do (Bay sil). You think our veterinarian can get it right after 6 years? Not bloody likely, lol.
