There were water-dropping helicopters flying east again this afternoon, but their trips were much longer, so the fire which flared up nearby yesterday must be out, or contained, and the helicopters were probably going to the fire near the middle fork of the river. No scent of smoke has reached us all day. Let it stay that way.
Two of the feral cats (gray kitty and gray tabby kitty) spent almost the entire night on my back porch last night, after arriving before sunset. Tonight, only the tabby kitty has shown up. I wonder what the other one is up to? Maybe he's got another female to visit elsewhere.
Out in the rest of the world, amusement happens. How dumb does something have to be for it to be successfully mocked by Paris Hilton?
