Has anyone noticed how Google's "Chrome" browser
will wrap your words right in mid-sentence? It does
that on a number of websites, including these Cam
Notes pages.

We used to have a "cat" like the one in the 2002 photo. We sailed it in the Gulf of Mexico and the dolphins came right up to us. That was soooo cool! Have a great day all!!

I thought maybe 6 cats was the count...I always heard baby skunks were called "kittens". Maybe that's just an Iowa term only.

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 - 01:03 pm:

Where did you see skunks? I have heard them referred to as pole cats, I believe.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 - 01:28 pm:

The skunks/pole-cats are on July 29, to the cats and below the pic of the daisys. Now the count should be 7 including the mother pole-cat of the 3 pole-cat kittens.

Especially like the moon rise + rainbow pics.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 - 07:06 pm:

Janie...I gotta tell ya, I'm having trouble finding those skunks in the 2008 photo. Are you sure that they are not just some smudges on your screen? Maybe try a little Windex :)
Then again, maybe I need to clean my screen so that I can see the skunks.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 - 07:48 pm:

Thanks for the chuckle this evening: I needed that. Alex, go back to the Archives for 2008. The skunks are in the second picture, that doesn't show up in the Decade in Review part; only the first picture showed up. I fell for it, at first, though, until I realized what was up. :-)

Alex....I have a webtv setup, items show or no-show up differently from a real computer.
