SWMBO and I were sitting in the living room watching television when we heard a sharp report. We both looked toward the front door and I said "that sounded like a gunshot outside."
But as I got up and went to look out I remembered that I had left the door to my den open. I glanced in and here's what I saw.
That's an old piece of furniture I use in which to store magazines and other overflow stuff. But if you look upper left in the photo you'll see the face of Blackwell, the mysterious and inky boy cat that lives with us peering guiltily out. Down on the floor below him is a magazine that he dislodged when he jumped into this strange perch. It made a sharp "whap" sound as it hit the floor.
Kind of like a gunshot outside.
