This is my first attempt at posting pictures. Not very good, but I will learn.
This is Minkey's favorite place in the whole house. While Gordon and Arnold (the dogs) were visiting Minkey did not see the fireplace because he was in Elizabeth's room, sulking. He was not a happy kitty. He LOVES the fireplace. He likes it better than my lap.

"Minkey, come and sit on my lap."

"You want me to what? Sit on your lap? Do you see this face? It's a tired face."

" I need a nap. Sorry."

He's not really sorry. And that is about all we will see of Minkey as long as the fireplace is on. Oh, wait. he leaves the fireplace to soak up the morning sun in the living room, but that's definitely it.

Our cat LOVES the heat, but won't go near our comfy, warm wood-burning fireplace. It seems strange...I wish she would stretch out in front ot it!

Great pictures...

Of course you can use the "cloudmaker" story! I'm NOT a writer so don't expect too much from my blog, but I'm flattered that you would want to borrow from it. I'm a total newbie. Does the smokestack look familiar? I believe it is west of I-15...maybe over by the old Geneva plant??? I saw it out my back window and it fit the story so I snapped a picture.
