I stood in my yard and out on my deck to take photos of my immediate surroundings for us here. It is all my property you that see here. Just not usable except by the eyes to enjoy the beauty of the woods in all seasons. :-)
The last two nights when I have gotten into bed, Katie gets up usually just to be a roosting ornament for maybe ten minutes. The past two nights as I said a sentence ago, she has immediately laid her sweet head onto my cheek and closed her eyes and drifted off. So we are cheek to cheek and trust me, it is TICKLY! Long whiskers, while folded back against her little soft cheek are still there like nylon threads to tickle my skin. Do I ask her to move? Of course not. When I am anxious after 15 or so minutes to turn out the light and turn over and sleep I have to just stand being still. I have Katie up there, snoozing along, face to face. I reached over last night to turn off the light and she slept on. That is a first! Lights out usually mean "So long, I'm outta here!" but not this time. I finally wriggled enough to rouse her and she left. WHEW!
Here's my view at my home. As for the deck (you will see the privacy fence on the deck) that is attached to the house and is mine as is the house you will see in one of the pics.

|Poplar, Oak and Hickory Trees on my property.|
|On the deck here at my house which is a 1 floor home but all homes are built on the hills surrounding us all. So it looks like a 2 story house sorta.|
|One corner of the fenced in yard. We fenced for the kids. Property keeps on going on down the hills.|
|My deck is on the left. Our fencing is there for the kids when they were little.|
