Catching up by publishing some old draft posts. These pics are pre-Thanksgiving. Gabby and I were enjoying the early evening by hanging out on the deck. The leaf colors were spectacular this year.
While outside we discovered a new friend. He's pictured below. I think it is called a praying mantis. Gabby kinda sniffed at it. He seemed a little scared of us, but held still as if to fool us into thinking he wasn't there.
We moved on shortly to our own tasks and forgot about him. Our priorities were to smell the air, pet, and purr. Stuff like that.
