This video is about a week old. He's been showing keen interest in the cat for a long time, and since he started scooting we've been running interference, and waiting for him to learn a lesson the hard way, just hoping he doesn't get scratched too badly. Well, yesterday James and Scout had a very interactive game of chase. Jae watched closely so she could intervene if it looked like James might get his eyes scratched out, but watched in wonder as the two hit it off.
James scooted up to Scout, and she waited until he was close enough to get a hand on her. She then moved off a few feet, and flopped on her side, her invitation to play. She waited till he got close enough for him to get a hand on her, then moved a few feet further and flopped. I guess this continued for awhile. He got hold of her tail once, and she didn't like that, but she batted at him without extending her claws, I think until Jae rescued her.

James "kisses" us often. Really he sucks on our face, but you can tell he's trying to kiss you. It's particularly cute when I'm holding him and his Mom walks up close and he leans out, gets her face in both hands, and sucks on her cheek.
After I posted this picture, Susan pointed me to another, similiar picture. See below.
A couple more Thanksgiving pictures here.

Autumn leaves blow in drifts against curbs and the sides of houses and hills. Raked into piles in yards, they scatter, then meander back together where the wind takes them, cartwheeling.
They are brown and brittle; crunch, crackle and fragment as I walk through them, kick through them, dive in and role through them. For all their noisy protest and my reckless expenditure of energy, it will take me a life-time to make them dust...make them dust so that they disappear underfoot, and blow away to sting eyes and drift on windowsills.
