S IS FOR....

S is for the SLEEPING GIANT


You can see him here in the outline of the mountains on Kauai.  Let's just let him sleep shall we?  He often gets wet with all the rain that falls up there and some people hike right up to him, but not me.  I like my giants left in peace.

S is also for SISTER


She will go with us when next we visit the Sleeping Giant, but that's quite few months away yet.  Some people think we look very much alike, but I'm not sure.This is the best picture of me in a side view with which to compare.

S is also for SCRUFFY
Of course it is, you didn't think I would let an opportunity like this pass without posting him on here, did you?

He is my pride and joy!  Such a sweet cat!

You and your sister do favor. The older me and my sis get, the more we look alike.

I think Scruffy is so adorable, and you could use one more S, Chris...Softy..for you, and your precious love for your cat.

I agree, there is definitely a resemblance.
Scruffy Seems So Settled.

I can't always see these 'sleeping giants', etc but this one is very clear!

Ann said...

The outline is very neat, don't think I've ever seen this. And I know I wouldn't make it to the top.

As you know, I'm more inclined to give Scruffy a wide berth than the sleeping giant, and, as for sisters - not sure who should be the most flattered, if we really do look alike!

yup, a definite family resemblance.

Scruffy looks like he's asking why you're disturbing him! lol Yes, I can see a family resemblance.

I concur with the others who see a family resemblance. Sisters are truly Special and I adore Scruffy. You say you like to leave sleeping giants in peace, but you also say you will visit this one with your sister in a few months. I am curious about that :)

Hello Chris !
In Martinique Island there is a set of mountains named "la femme couchée". The lying down woman.
When we loot at it from away, you can see a profile, the head, the neck and the breast.
Scruffy is a very beautiful cat.

Ann said...

we have a sleeping giant too in Borneo, she is waiting for her husband to come back.

Love Scruffy - and the sleeping giant we have something similar a sleeping angel - which can be found on Carningli in North Pembrokeshire UK - this area provided the subject matter for local author Brian John and his Angel Mountain Saga Books - a very good read- Jane
