How DO cats do that, with no stairs???

Desiree said...

Delightful!

JudyB said...

Yay Carolina!

How DID Miss Susie Hutchens get up there? How do you?

Martin said...

Now, that's what I call, curling up with a good book!

June said...

OH!
Look at those wonderful old books!
I can feel them, smell them, from here!

Pat in east TN said...

I got a kick out of your post but am still amazed at ALL those books! I love being surrounded by my books, and guess Miss Susie Hutchens feels the same way about yours.

Jules said...

and what a lovely spot to be!
I could see Beau Geste (haven't read that in 50 years!) but what else do you have in that lovely old pile?!

Kath said...

What a perfect roost for a writer. Literally curled up with lots of good books. Love it!

Brian Miller said...

i hope hinson is ok...strong game yesterday...and duke looked tired and beaten last night...proably still the after affects of last weekend...i think we can take the tourney and roll into the madness...

Jean Baardsen said...

Sounds like you're gearing up for the tournament. Enjoyed the photos!

Barbara Rogers said...

Great to hear from your critters again...and oh my, I'm in awe of that wall of books! And of course you've read them all!

That's quite a book collection. It's good to know there are others who suffer from the same disease, and apparently have just as little desire to be cured.

Jimminey Crickets. I'd love to see how she managed that. Cats are cool that way.

Miss Susie achieves the heights by going up the stairs to the loft, dropping down onto the top of a tall secretary that sits by the bookshelf and then leaping to the top of the books. Eddie is too heavy and too clumsy to follow. As am I. If I want to get a book or vacuum up there, I have to use a ladder.

The old books began with a bunch I inherited from my grandmother -- lots of Harold Bell Wright, Owen Wister's THE VIRGINIAN, Gene Stratton Porter (my favorite) and lots more that I picked up here and there. Mostly they are popular fiction from the early 1900s -- very romantic.

We have lots of books -- there are bookshelves in most of our rooms -- what you see here is the tip of the iceberg.

Re Carolina -- I'm not really a fan but the fellas who are, are hopeful. And even if they don't win this Tournament (the ACC - Atlantic Coast Conf.) Carolina is are still assured tickets to The Big Dance aka NCAA -- the national tournament.

Vicki -- Nice photos. I especially like the complete wall of books -- beautiful. -- barbara

When I first looked at the picture with all your books, I thought 'what's that on the top shelf, it looks like a cat!' It was, how sweet. She obviously wanted to get away from the world (and all those dogs) for a little while.
I love the bookshelves. My idea of heaven too!

What can I say? Our very lives are governed by which game is on and when the next begins.

Frances said...

Vicki, I am really enjoying getting acquainted with you through your posts.

March madness can only mean one thing if you know anything about college basketball. I admit that although I am no longer much of a fan, or a regular follower of basketball at the college or "officially" professional level (the NY Knicks broke my heart too many times,) I still think of quarters on a court when March rolls around.

Let me again tell you how much I admire your garden photos and thank you for your comments.

Best wishes.

Victoria said...

Miss Susie Hutchins, you are just too cute!

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Perfect place for a cat nap!

jennyfreckles said...

Good grief - how does she get up there?

jennyfreckles said...

Oh, should have read the comments first! ;-)

JJM said...

Ah, Richard Harding Davis. The chap who once wrote, "No civilized man ever goes to bed on the same day he gets up." And Horatio Alger, too. Miss Susie has good taste. ;)
