Naming them of course!
Growing up we totally loved our freaky pets and we loved thinking up crazy names!
Mom's cat from before I was born was A. Squats - Alexander Quincy Squats in all his one eyed, balding, cauliflower eared, limping lovable goodness! (Pretty sure I blogged about him before...)
"My" first pet (next to the furry beach ball A. Squats) was a puppy my dad brought home from his gas station - ok, maybe not a puppy since she was the gas station watch dog... He asked what I wanted to name her and I started to sing "When sunny gets blue...her eyes get grey and cloudy..." Yes - I was a strange child...So we named her Sunny. I "hearted" Sunny!
When I was about 5 ( I am totally guessing - I know I was young)...
My mother asked me what I wanted to name our cat...
I started to sing the alphabet...
A - B - C -D -E -F & so on...(yes - I loved singing even back then!)
My mother said we will just name him AB...but what should those letters stand for?
We came up with Abraham Benjamin *laughs* I must have been learning about the presidents!?
Then came our next cat... CD of course! Clarence Darrow...what better then to name your cat after a lawyer who argued for evolution against creation...yes, what ideal Catholics we were!
Then came EF ... the hamster that brought all this nostalga up this evening... Enob Femur was his name... *laughs* It just came to me.... Femur... & bone backwards was enob - perfect - EF! Again...a strange child that was obsessed with Barnabus Collins, blood and bones!
Then we had GH... I was older and started loving old movies...so Gatsby game to mind.... no idea where we got Horatio... but it fit. Gatsby was awesome an loved to curl around your neck and suck on your earlobe. Sadly EF & GH met their fates in our house fire :( AB hid with A.Squats in the basement! Once the house was rebuilt we got our last cat before I moved out...
IJ - Icabod Jacoby! Jacboby was a killer Persian cat with golden eyes - truely beautiful....until his humans drove him insane...but that's a story for another blog!
*laughs* what fabulous memories...
What about you? What are the names of your pets?

But it was a pretty decent Saturday...
(The picture really doesn't do it justice - it is much more majestic in person!)
More of the beutiful colors...
(and the bouncy thingy that didn't try to take off with children!)
This my friends is the capitol building in Hartford, CT
I would have to say it is my most favorite building in Hartford.
There are so many other beautiful structures that I couldn't get picture of...
they made me stay and play with the children *laughs*
Maybe...no definitely...another time!
This is how the day played out - when I was leaving the clouds stared to roll in...
it got dark and dreary...
(so I headed to the mall for some retail theraphy - nothing like some flourescent lighting to lift ones mood)
Just a few more cool pictures of the building I got to hang out with today!
