Good morning dear Blogger friends. Last week as I got out of my car, which I had parked in the car port, I noticed an interesting shadow. The sawn off tree next to my parking was throwing a shadow across the muddy driveway. This same tree - an alien, jacaranda - has far reaching roots which causes a bulge in my bedroom carpet. While my dearest Shadow was still with me, he used to rush into the room (from outside!) and sharpen his claws on this carpet covered root.
