Chris said he took the shot whilst hiking Spencer Butte, a prominent landmark in Lane County, Oregon, on the southern edge of Eugene, with an elevation of 2,058 feet (627 m). The photo itself was tweeted in response to another ‘rainbow storm cloud’ that was spotted by Victor Gensini in Norfolk, Colorado.

Well, I am still favored to win the race for the gold, but Cookie took his best shot, yesterday, by leaping out of his bed and nailing my finger with his fang. I wore Ugg boots, jeans and thought my hands were out of reached but his jump and lunge was amazing, And his fang was well aimed towards my finger His nick name has been upgraded from Little Shit. Use your imagination. Going forward we will wear gloves. I was angry enough to kill him, but did not want to elevated him to martyr status. Cole will be home in just a couple of hours and he can take his turn. I washed my “wound” like crazy with soap and water and put neosporin on it. It’s swollen and bruised but I’ll disappointed Cookie by living and trust me he won’t have to last word.
Off to pick up my teen who informed he would be hungry after his long flight and wondered if we could stop on the way home at our favorite breakfast place. I think it can be arranged. I can’t wait to see him and catch up. The sea turtle at the top of his post is from one of his adventures.
Wishing you a super Saturday.
