Here is a sampling of photos I have taken with my work cell phone.
I took this photo before I left work this morning. Kiley, my 14 year old chow mix, was starting to slip on the wood floors. Got her a sporty little pair of socks (she prefers the word "boots"). They're just like the kind we humans get in the hospital -- little rubber treads on the bottom. I figured she'd have them off in a flash, so I got her to stand up quickly and gave her a treat. She realized immediately, hey, I've got traction! They have made a huge difference.
These are my new firefighting boots! First time wearing Danner's. Wore White's for years, but since I wrecked my knee I need a flatter heel. Wish me luck breaking them in.
My new cat, Kevin. Three year old manx, adopted from local cat rescue group. He's going to be a sweetheart.
My lovely assistant. Just another day at the US Forest "Circus".
This is one of my favorites. Hurricane Irene did this to a fire danger sign last summer. Ahhh, irony.
