It was meant to be

Picture this...

Chief is asleep in "their" chair. All happy dreaming of knit mice when Bert decides to join him. Bert is not a gentle kitty, he's a bull in a china shop. Bert jumps up on top on Chief's head and miracle of miracles - Chief stays there. They cuddle in next to each other and get ready for a nap.

This can't be left alone by me - it's a photo op. Of course, the usual game plan is: I go hunt up the camera, get it turned on, set it for indoors, aim and..... one of them gets up and goes away.

This time I get up, get the camera, turn it on, set it for indoors, aim, zoom in and take a picture. Then another. Then I realize the top dial was bumped and set on movie instead of picture. So - I turn the dial to picture and the batteries go dead. DRAT! But - what's this - the boys are still in their chair sitting side by side. Maybe just maybe I can get new batteries put in and still get the picture.

Out to the kitchen and grab new batteries. I popped the pack open went back into the den. WOW! The boys are STILL sitting there. I took out the old batteries - put in the new ones - turn the camera on and - the batteries are in the wrong way. And the boys are STILL sitting there looking cute.

Out with the batteries - flip them around - put them back in - turn the camera on - aim - zoom in - and, this is where I tell you they got up and walked away but NO this is a special day. I have cute picture mojo going today. I GOT 3 SHOTS before Bert got up. Cool.
