Monday Musings with Georgia

Georgia: We cats know how wonderful sunshine is.
This weekend we were lucky to have some.

The heat feels so nice on the furs. Mmmmmmmmmmm!

So good in fact, I'm going to lay here and enjoy it for a long time!

JJ is enjoying it as well, next to this BIG bag of bird seed.

Treasure is stretched out to be sure to absorb  as many
sunbeams as possible.

The two kitties in one shot.
Sorry Tabbies 'o Trout Towne, Mom likes looking
at birds.We would prefer to chase them. MOL!

Julie enjoyed the sun too.
She also went to a party!
It was at Billy the Time Cat's place .

You can see all at House Panthers!

Finally Friday with Georgia

Georgia: Hi friends. As you can see I am on the porch.
It is really sunny and warm.

I need a place to enjoy this glorious sun.
That looks good over there.


Maybe up there is not such a great place.

It appears to be taken.

I can enjoy the sunbeams just fine here.
Maybe later,I will hop up to the window ledge.
It's sunny everywhere on the porch.

Julie: Awwww, come on up Georgia.
I promise not to bother you.
You can trust your little sister.

Have a great and fun weekend!

What Mom Saw- The Big Lift

Georgia: I told Mom she could use our blog to post her
pictures of the Big Lift.
I was glad I got to stay home and enjoy this sunshine.

These are some pictures from Saturday  October 17,2015
of the Big Lift.
and is need of major repairs so that it will be standing
for another 70 or so years.
This massive project involves replacing the deck of the bridge.
This will be done a section at a time. There will be 46 sections.
This past weekend was the first section.
The deck replacement will occur on weekends and where
applicable, the work will be done over night between
7:30 PM and 5:30 AM

To learn more about this project, click on the RED links.

Old section of the bridge being lowered  to a barge below.

The yellow apparatus is known as the "Lifter"
The big loops guide the cables attached to the old bridge section.

The new section is waiting on a barge.

A close up of the new section.

Old section being lowered.

There is a worker here watching progress.
In spite of a safety harness, it still looks scary!
These workers have nerves of steel.

 Saturday night, work continued on the bridge.
Old re-bar needed to be removed to fit in the new section.

You can see orange areas where the grinding was going on.
It produced lots of smoke that created an ethereal scene.

Lots of sparks!

A view of the bridge from below.
This weekend,the replacement took a long time to get the new
section in place. They took time to ensure all was secure.
The bridge opened to traffic Monday morning, a few hours late.
Needless to say, the morning commute for some was long, 
as there was only one bridge open.
Fortunately, there is a ferry service, so I was not affected 
by the delayed opening this Monday morning.

While at the bridge, there was a lovely crescent moon :)

Sunny Porch with JJ and Treasure

JJ: Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm,sunny porch.
So warm too. 

I love sleeping in war sunbeams!

Treasure: I need a soft place for a nap.

That looks like a good spot!

What do you mean "I'm too close?"

Humph, some brother you are.
This raspberry is for you!

There! I have my own comfy spot!
Now I'll snooze too.

Mom and her sister went to see this.
They are removing sections of the MacDonald Bridge
and replacing them with new ones.
Mom will show more pictures tomorrow.
You can click on the red links to learn more about
this big project!

In the meantime, you can find out why Julie has such
wide eyes!

Pop over to see her at House Panthers.

Finally Friday with Julie

Julie: We enjoyed having Mom home for a few extra days.
She went back to work Thursday and is working today.

We had some nice sunny ,warm days 
and it was good to be on the porch.

I am looking forward to the porch again this weekend.
Mom says it will be cooler, but we are sheltered from
the weather on the porch. As long as we have
sunshine I will be happy.Since Mom says it will
be sunny, you know where you can find me.

Right here, soaking up as many rays as I can !

Oh yes, I am a mighty happy kitty!

Wishing all of you a happy and fun weekend too !
