Thursday: Hili dialogue

by Grania

Good morning! We have a lot of animals from Twitter today.

Spider-cat, spider-cat
Does whatever
A spider-cat does

A sleepy owl

And a happy bear

And a bird that sounds un-birdlike.

And a tear-jerking video

From Poland, it appears that Hili has a new job.

A: Photo opportunity!
Hili: Quick, cover me and I’ll cover you.

In Polish:
Ja: Sesja zdjęciowa.
Hili: Szybko, zasłoń mnie, a ja zasłonię ciebie.

      … … a wee wilderness story, Mr George:

      A kiddo of mine a couple of decades ago ‘d
      had a bear – watching gig at the premier
      salmon – jumping / grizzly deal of Brooks
      Lodge, Katmai / Aleutians. That is, two men
      were kept by their bosses hqed back inside
      Anchorage … … down and over to the Lodge
      after they ‘d worked the tourist season which
      had ended in mid September. In order just
      to specifically guard the Lodge, all of its
      outpostings and other human – used portions
      of the resort from … … the scavenging and so
      destructive to wooden structures’ bears.
      I as mama to one of ‘em was, o’course,
      concerned that if something untoward happened
      to my child, wuuuull … … like the sudden
      appendicitis which his Bro Jacob ‘d suffered
      one wintertime (back here in the contiguous
      states), how would Z get helped ?! In time.

      Nothing bad happened to either man. The hq –
      personnel ‘d had some type of radio – phone
      technology to the Lodge from Anchorage; and
      every Friday made contact with the two to
      check in, “How many bears still awake and
      coming around this past week ?” “O, we dealt
      with seven.” Or whatever weekly decreasing
      ( thankfully ! ) number.

      Only when the Friday’s contact – call yielded
      to the hq folks the answer back of, “Only
      .one. bear this past week !” did hq pilots
      fly in and set down the float plane upon the
      ice and bring Zachary and the other man out.
      For the rest of the wintertime. The date
      that year for … … ” one bear only ?”
      05 December … …

      Needless to say, Mama was soooo, so relieved
      to hear his voice coming at me … … from

    The cat climbing the wall. I wonder if it’s textured. Is Hili shy for the first time? Must be fake news.

    Wow! Hili is one big cat.
